Dont think he starts,but wouldnt say hes outta the picture

I should dig up some old Carter film of him not fumbling at Syracuse.  That kid was bad to the bone....amazing he comes into the NFL and fumbles 2 or 3 times and now he is a forgotten man....put Carter behind a good line and see what happens.  My guess is he is not a fumbler (Some of that I feel was an injured hand) and we see flashes of what he can be.  I still like Carter....I like him better than Brown to be honest...you know I like to be honest....my middle name is Abe....(honest?)  :)

I really do think folks forget how tough he was at the Cuse.....

 

His first preseason....the forum was raving about him...he fumbles 3 times...then he is no longer good....tell Marshawn Lynch he is not good.....he has fumbled....and fumbled...it happens going for extra yardage and when punishing tacklers.

Brother some have labled Ballard as a fumbler in this forum I say nonsense and i know about Carters hand problems,they are both the kind of backs i like,runners that inflict punishment as well as taking it

I honestly don't know what Carter is. I haven't seen him on the field since preseason. And all the games I did see last season, he didn't play

I know this is a highlight film TK, but this guy did NOT fumble in college.

 

@Jay Kirk:  Ballard dropped the ball what 3 times?  Did we ever lose the possession?

Carter had a lot of fumble problems his first year and this past year, he was used a lot on short yardage situations, which weren't a whole lot. 

 

I want to say he fumbled once this past year, but I could be wrong.

Delone Carter :3 Fumbles in 2011 in 101 carries and 1 Fumble in 2012:  Fumbled in his strongest game/The NO Saints debacle...never to be heard from again :)

 

Vick Ballard 3 fumbles in 2012.

 

Donald Brown:  1 fumble from 2009-212......

Fixed it for you :).

 

And I was just guessing the one fumble. And Vick Ballard pretty much caused Carter to be the unknown number 3 back.

I wanted to look it up...fun stuff.

 

I still like Carter....at the same time he had 3..Garcon had 2 :)

 

I bet.

 

That is interesting, I mostly remember that Carter played sparingly in his first year, and when he did, he fumbled the ball in some critical moments. So I think of him as the fumble prone guy 

 

Everytime I see Garcon's facebook page, half the comments on his status are "come back to Indy" and I am just like "stay in Washington"

I felt like looking it up today...it was fun...

 

I think everyone remembers Mewelde Moore for his big fumble this year too...and he was not a known fumbler.  He has one or tw awful games for us...poor guy..the forum was relentless...and I helped!!  :)

IMO theres no doubt who it will be Ballard not only earned it ,I expect him to be much better this year,also fully expect to have the OL to open more lanes for him :thmup: cant wait to see who we come up with,and would also like to say good luck to big Ben Ijalanas rehab,would love to see what you can actually do

Jay, I agree Ballard is a power horse stud...He's our #1 RB. Keep those legs churning & burning young man. Yeah, where the Hades is Carter? FBI Witness Protection? Brent, or should I say Honest Abe, a present for you from SW1:

1 Question: Why does rapper Eminem get used as the primary musical score in so many NFL highlight reels? He's not that talented IMO. But then again, I'm not a huge fan of hip hop & rap to begin with.

Let's change it up a little bit...Jazz, Blues, Rock, Heavy Metal, Bluegrass [Okay maybe not Bluegrass, but that would be funny on an NFL highlight reel though along with Reggae & Big Band.] haha

Or better yet, a John Philip Sousa march....Funniest thing I every saw, the Marx Brothers were attempting to break into a safe very quietly except when they broke the code & open the door a resounding "Stars & Stripes Forever" played & woke everyone up... Okay, way off topic. 

 

 

I will stop now. It was hilarious though. No, I don't remember the film title either...

    • I can’t remember, at what point in that game did he lead by 10 in the second half and reel off 20+ straight passes?    At what point in any game has he ever done that? Just like the joker who claimed Peyton Manning used to do it all the time just show me one game. Just one. Surely with Tom Brady under center he abandoned the run with a lead all the time, right?   Right?   … right? Just one game. That’s all I’m asking to see. He’s coached almost 500 in his career, just remind me of one. Shouldn’t be too hard. I’ll wait. 
    • I'll be posting my 2021 colts assessment at the end of the season.  Re: offseason decisions, coping with injuries and issues during the season, the good, the bad, the ugly.  Will wait until it's all over.
    • It is not a great QB class, I feel they will go all in for DeShaun Watson with clauses in there for his legal issue repercussions. It will make them a division contender instantly.
    • Peyton, during the Marcus Pollard / Trent Dilger days, used a lot of 2 TE formations (ACE) because the OL movement started off the same way and it gave them an advantage, whether it was a run or pass play. I am all for 2 TE formations since you can also go max. protect with it if you need or based on defensive alignment, split out the TE as a flanker. The only time we would not do it is for 3 WR formations (POSSE) which includes or excludes Hines, who should be used like a slot wideout, IMO.   Typically, if teams are against the clock, they go POSSE but if they have the luxury of time or are going against a stout D-line or need extra chipping from TEs, they go ACE. I would like the Colts to go more ACE, given their strength running the ball and given that our WRs, beyond MPJ and TY aren't that capable consistently. 
    • Campbell is a weird one. I'd keep him for next year just to see if breaks out or is at least a decent WR in the final year of his contract. Cap will be tight, and he is cheap. In the limited time he's played, he has shown promise. It's literally the injuries that have destroyed his career so far.
