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......

I think with some work with Pep in this WCO, Carter may progress more & get more physical to avoid fumbles. This is just a thought, I'm not counting on it though. But I hope he gets it together

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 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

I should find a RB reel & set it too Glen Miller's "Chattanooga Choo Choo" or "In The Mood" just to mess with people's minds...A little diversity & culture every now & then is a good thing right? That would be worth it...

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...

Ballard. . . unless Brown shows something really special this season, we need to let him go to FA next season.  He isn't worth what he's being paid.  You can find a lot better RB's out there for the money we are giving him.

I think it is time to get a real feature back with the new offense. Given the fact he loves the pass as much as the run bring in Stephen Jackson.

30 year old RB....awesome

    • Wentz is the first real dart throw...but it's still somewhat of a half-measure. And this has really been the theme since Luck got retired.   First, they tried to turn the backup QB into a franchise QB by giving him money and trying to speak it into existence.   Second, they signed a very old vet QB with a very good track record that had experience with Reich to a low-risk one-year deal to make a push.   Third, they finally traded some real draft capital for a younger post-hype QB (already under contract) who had fallen out of favor with his former team. But they even hedged this move by making one of those picks conditional...because even they know this move is a risky move that they aren't 100% confident in.   But it's not surprising...because these moves sort of follow a theme or a philosophical approach to the QB position. And maybe it's just coincidental...but there are a lot of parallels between the moves made by Ballard's previous org.'s and the moves made by the Colts.    CHI (2001-2012) Drafted (1) QB in the 1st round and that was Rex Grossman at #22 in 2003. CHI had the #4 pick that year and traded back for #13 and #22. Not only did they trade back to #13, they didn't even take a QB with that pick. (That seems like a very Ballard type of move if you ask me.) The only other QB drafted in the top 4 rounds during his entire tenure was Kyle Orton, in the 4th round of 2005 draft.  After the initial options don't work, and because CHI is stuck in QB purgatory by being no worse than 7-9, CHI makes a big trade and sends Orton and picks to DEN for Jay Cutler, a former 1st round pick QB thought to have huge upside.  But Cutler also came with some potential locker room issues and had requested a trade after his relationship with their HC became irreconcilable. (Sounds very familiar). Cutler has some success in CHI, but only wins (1) playoff game in 8 years at QB.  KC (2013 - 2017) Ballard arrives in KC after the 2013 draft. In March, KC had traded (2) 2nd round picks for Alex Smith, with one of those picks being conditional upon playing time. (This is very similar to the type of offer that Ballard gave to PHI.) Smith was a former #1 overall pick QB who had ups and down...and had just been replaced by a backup QB...coincidentally also a 2nd round pick. He had reportedly been working back channels to get out of SF. (Sounds familiar again.) Through Reid's coaching, Smith is actually a pretty damn good QB, but KC only wins (1) playoff game in five seasons (the same number as Cutler in CHI). During this time, KC doesn't draft a QB before the 5th round until 2017 when Ballard is already in Indy. At that point, they make an aggressive trade up in the NFL draft for Mahomes and let Smith mentor him for a season before trading Smith to WAS. So based on this timeline, the Colts are currently several years away from actually drafting a legit QB and thus competing for SBs. I am kidding of course. But there are a lot of parallels here.
    • No point beating a dead horse. You can marginalize the conversation by leaning on the greatest outlier in all of sporting history and ignore all the other data but I'll not stick around for that. 
    • 100 % of the teams that won the Super Bowl last year didn't
    • How many teams in the playoffs last year had a starting QB that wasn't drafted in the first round?
