wow that seems a rather harsh opinion after only seeing him in limited action in 2 preseason games.  

 

 

Sorry, but from what I can tell, he looks slow and not very elusive for his size. Maybe it's some sort of optical illusion coming through my TV, but that's what I gather in the short time I've seen him. Seen him at camp twice too and was not impressed at all.

Good trade for Colts. Might as well try and get something for him. He wasn't going to make the team anyways. Plus, outside of Wayne/DHB/Hilton the 4th WR spot is up in the air (especially with Whalen's injury past & Brazill being suspended first 4 games). Reed can also return kicks.

Slow?? O.o

Doug Martin averaged 3.1 ypc in his first 2 preseason games.

Williams averaged 3 behind a horrendous line.

People judge players too quickly.

I've never liked Carter (as a player of course...) He's done nothing here except fumble and look soft when he was supposed to be a bruiser... I've always been amazed at those who liked him better than Brown... getting anything for him is better than just cutting him (which we were sure to do)...

Reed is a decent return guy and ST gunner, but he hasn't done anything as a wr... although last year he caught 5 passes on 6 targets, they were the only passes he's ever caught in his 4 yr. career..

Irrelevant trade if you ask me, Kerwynn Williams showed more flashes in the run game than Carter did anyway. Return game is more of a problem with the blockers than it is the returner, neither returner did good whether it was Vaughn or Williams. Williams had the longest return which was 28yrds I think.

    • To play devil's advocate...but why?   The Colts just won 9 games with Wentz. Barring a full implosion, I doubt they would be picking super high with Wentz at QB.    So it's not like that is going to get you closer to a franchise QB.     However, if you draft one now...you might have a possible solution by the end of next season. And if not, then go draft one. It's bad organizations that hang onto QBs, because that is the path of least resistance.    Imagine if KC had kept Alex Smith or BUF had stuck with Tyrod Taylor. Or the LAR with Goff. Or TB with Winston. Or NE with Cam.    It seems like good organizations are honest with themselves.    
    • We didn’t over draft him.  Not our concern.  Water over the dam I think.  He is certainly not being over paid.  If he is average now and returns to health next year there is a good chance he becomes above average again.  Worth bringing him back on a reasonable contract maybe with incentives.
    • It’s 2022.   It doesn’t matter one bit if he was over-drafted in 2013.   There’s no dot to connect.     If you want to argue he’s an average left tackle and the Colts need better,  THAT’S a different argument.   But who is better and what will it cost to acquire?    If it’s Pryor, I’m fine with that if we think we can get roughly the same level of performance for half the price or less.   But that’s a different argument.   
    • Can FA and the draft start already?
