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 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

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

    • But we got Mark Hermann.   Colts won that trade.  Ha ha. maybe if they would have used the pick they got from Denver better.   They took Ron Solt.  
    • My big gripe with Ballard has been not addressing long-term QB.    I think last year was wasted because, at best, it was a 1-2 year solve and we knew that going in. I hear all the time about a rookie QB wasting prime years of an established team which is essentially what Rivers did.    This is also why I'm very high on the Wentz move. You have to make a move for a long-term QB at some point and, imo, the sooner the better. I'm not particularly affected if this move fails (at least we're trying now). I regularly hear that missing on a QB will set your franchise back several years. You know what else will set your franchise back? Not having a QB.   My gripes with Ballard are over now.
    • This is actually true. If people didn’t watch him on the field this is exactly what they would think. I love the leader he has already turned into also. You can tell with his comments he will be a captain some day.
    • Kick tires and maybe a 1 year prove it deal. 
    • They traded up from 7 to 5 to select Trev Alberts.   They traded 2 first round picks, which ended up being number 15 in 1989 and #3 in 1990, to get Fredd Young who played just three seasons with Indianapolis before retiring because of an arthritic hip. He finished his Colts career with two sacks in the blue and white.
