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.

    • The WR position though greatly needed isnt very big for me.   I highly hope Ballard continues to build the trenches as he has done cause he has done wonderful doing that thus far.
    • Yes, slightly OT here but the #2 WR position has been a problem for the Colts for years.    Grigson tried to address it with Moncrief and Dorsett, and a series of FAs, none of which were very productive (at the time though, Avery was a slot and played with TY and Reggie, making a very good trio).   Ballard has tried to address it with Campbell and Pittman, but his quantity of other tries did not emerge or had setbacks like Funchess.   You could say that since Reggie got hurt, the most reliable and consistent second option behind TY was Ebron......for one year.    That's pretty pathetic.
    • Ballard is the best drafting GM in the league since 2018 IMO (the year he brought HIS scouts in). However, he's shown an inability to draft WRs and EDGE rushers so far, and we don't know if he is able to get us a franchise QB back post-Luck. I do think this team will be good for years to come with him as GM, but Ballard has to drop his mentality that the QB isn't the most important guy on the team. That's just not true, and it's extremely obvious with the Colts.   Otherwise, if he continues his drafts the way he currently does them, I want him as my GM. He just needs a plan to get us our new QB whether it be the draft, FA, trade, or starting Eason at some point.
    • I will say...while Luck retiring was a raw deal...how many new GMs actually get to inherit a top tier franchise QB? Most teams make a change in the FO because they don't have that QB (and therefore the team is not good). So while having your QB retire abruptly is uncommon...it is not uncommon for a GM to have to solve the QB problem for a franchise...like Ballard will have to do.   I would also say that Ballard got a chance few GMs get. The 2017 team was a disaster...and it gave the Colts the #3 pick in a QB-heavy draft. Already having a QB on the roster (at the time)...Ballard was able to flip that pick into a huge amount of draft capital to accelerate the rebuild. In his first 3 drafts...he had SIX 2nd round picks to work with. And most people don't even begin to evaluate him until the 2018 season...which seems like a pretty good deal as well.
    • I like Ballard and I think he is one of the top GM's in the league.   Now that we are SB contenders again this year I think it's time for him to make a move at the deadline to position the team for the final run.  No reason not to.  We could use some help at a few positions so this is when the good GM's on contending teams make a move to help their teams.  I think we are there now.
