read more carefully please
No, we have power. We were missing it for about 4 days. There are people in NJ and NY who still don't have power though. (2 weeks is a long damn time not to have power) I really feel for those people. A co-worker of mine just got power back over the weekend.
........THAT is an intriguing thought....
.....get him in the 2nd or 3rd and trade Felix for a 3rd or 4th...I could live with that easily
I was without power for 2 days and I felt like I was on one of those 'I Shouldn't Be Alive' shows.
i love carter so much i'm fixing to go rewatch the game on the dvr and strictly watch his highlights only.
What area are you in? My wife and kids. I think they missed the Internet more than anything else. My biggest issue was thinking what happens when the hot water is gone!?!?! How am I going to take a shower, cause I damn sure not going to take an icy cold shower! :laugh2:
no more lsu players...
The Lehigh Valley area of Pa.
I got lucky. A lot of people had to wait 4 or 5 days or more.
Still, it put it in proper perspective how big of a wimp I am. My forefathers are disgusted by me.
......and Lightning (LEE)....I'd pitch it, but Lee is hurt so gonna shelve it for now.
We were without power last July for six days, when it was over 90 each day.
Could not escape the heat. It was awful. Each day got worse than the day before.
It impacted the way I began to think. No power, no fridge, no fan, no air con, no TV, no internet, no lights to read.
We take our electricity for granted in America.
That we do. You wonder how the heck people lived without it.
Carter has been good. He is not performing on that elite level that Lee has proven himself on but our ILBs are an exciting duo with Carter and Lee. Hopefully playing next to each other for the next decade. Might be too expensive to keep both though, both will be looking at huge money deals soon.
What makes carter not elite? If the answer is turnovers that is just around the corner and it's the only reasonable answer.
Man if we get Chris Faulk in the second round I may run out the house and do cartwheels for half a mile. He would be huge steal... And this just might happen.
Bruce Carter is a tackler like nobody we've had for a while, and that's my favorite thing about him. He also has pretty phenomenal speed and run anticipation which is great too, but the way he tackles is just so good. Too many guys on the Cowboys try to anticipate a guy's next move and hesitate going in. Carter just grabs the guy and uses his whole body and momentum to take them down. Few guys can stop a 230 pound running back's momentum the way he does.
To be honest, he's playing as well as Lee was the beginning of this year right now. Every good run play I've seen against us the last couple weeks was right at Sims who overran the play. They can't run towards Carter at all.
I think offenses right now aren't prepared for Carter's speed. They haven't seen it. We're just seeing it ourselves.
You see plays that are well designed and should get some positive yards but he just closes way too quick.
One other thing that should be noted. Frank Coyle of Draft Insiders Digest, a guy who's been doing this stuff for well over 25 years, called Carter the best punt blocker he's ever scouted. I believe he blocked one last year. He almost got one in that Eagles game. I expect him to get there again before too long.
So he's an impact defensive and special teams player.
Well its not the first time, Canty was drafted while injured and that ended up working out well for us too. Should go to show that people shouldn't judge young talent real early, or they could look foolish.
It really depends on the injury these days, cause alot of players can bounce back from them especially if they have alot of talent. As for us doing it again in the draft, why not, no reason to be scared to do it at this point.
