Is that all we got? This guy? Should have tried to get a third or fourth round pick not sure we needed another wideout?

 

there is no way we would have gotten a 3rd or 4th round pick for Carter. ;)

This guy is purely a KR/PR. He's caught 5 passes in 3 yrs, but has good return skills. IMO Kerwynn Williams sucks!

 

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

I don't know if he sucks, but where the Darren Sproles comparisons came from I have no idea.

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.

    • Probably one of the most underrated players because of the knee injury he suffered in 2001. Edge could do it all. I couldn't believe how quick and explosive he was and how effortlessly he was able to juke defenders out of their cleats. He could pass block and had some of the best not only on the team, but one of the best pass catching running backs of all time.
    • I usually eat my “night-time meal” after 9pm.  Its either the biggest or 2nd biggest meal of my day.  I dont eat breakfast.  Lunch between 11 and 1.  Dinner between 5 and 6 usually.  And then... tadaaa... the nightine meal.  As i usually dont go to bed before 2, sometimes i’ll even have a snack (1 or 2 pnut butter n jelly, or a couple bannanas).  Oh, and i drink pepsi all day too. The best part is, i’m 55, 6’3”, and weigh what i did in high school and college.  To gain weight, i have to hit the free weights HARD, and add alot of pasta, milkshakes, donuts, etc to my diet.  Im ok with the latter, but that exercise crap will kill ya!   I burn calories watching the Boston marathon while half-asleep and laying on the couch i think.   I have stopped telling these facts to women, as the looks i get could melt steel.  They cant just be happy for me.  I’ve also ticked a few off when they wanted us to check our fat % on one of those gizmos at a brookstone or sharper image store. Good, clean livin’.  Haha
    • Just because Ballard decided to go a different route has nothing to do with his ability to scout QBs.  Him trading a 13th pick for Buckner was a no brainer.  As far as what Ballard did or didn't do in regards to trading up, is a complete unknown. We don't know what Ballard is doing till it's already done.  We still don't know how Eason is going to work out so I wouldn't be so quick to judge. 
    • Hall Of Fame worthy no doubt. Truly a special player.  Edge was one of a kind that will be forever be in the talk of great Colt players.    Side note: His friendship with Jim Irsay shows a part of why Colt fans really like Jim.  If a player dedicates himself to the team, the owner dedicates himself to the player.   
    • There is a lot of truth to this comment if you think about it.  It is never easy for a fanbase to get over the loss of a QB some consider one of the best to ever play the game. Then Manning was replaced by Luck. When Luck was healthy he was a beast. A linebacker mentality playing QB.  What made him fun to watch is what lead him to an early exit.  With Manning and then Luck this team was carried by the play of the QB position.    I think Ballard has been working on a team that is not dependent on a pro bowl caliber QB to win games.  A lot of Colt fans don't get excited when we don't have a super hero that puts us in awe.
