Any News on Andre Carter?

Things have been quiet concerning him so far. I haven't heard much in the Washington Post or from any of our training camp "experts."

It's probably been said here a hundred times already, but if Carter can start out the way he finished last season, do you think his impact on the defense could be even greater than that of Sean Taylor's?

Re: Any News on Andre Carter?

Actually I've heard a few things about him, all good.

GW said it took him some time to adjust to playing DE full-time again last year, but he expects very big things from him this year.

Re: Any News on Andre Carter?

c'mon people! What about the important questions? Is Andre Carter shy? Is he married?

Seriously, it's like you people don't even think sometimes

Re: Any News on Andre Carter?

Seriously though, I was a big advocate of bringing Andre Carter here before we got him so I hope we see more of the 2nd half AC from last year. Because he was downright awful in the first half of the season (but then again, so were a lot of people)

Re: Any News on Andre Carter?

With Carter, I think it was just a matter of him getting comfortable with both a new atmosphere, as well as having to make the transition back to DE on a full time basis. Not drafting for the D-line may not prove to be so bad if he can pick up where he left off at the end of last season.

Re: Any News on Andre Carter?

I'm actually feeling good about not drafting DL. While Okoye was pretty special (at least his age and talent), it's good to see we're going to give Golston and Montgomery a chance. One season isn't nearly enough to see what we have.

And instead we have a beast safety (at least by all accounts so far).

Well since he plays a position that sees a lot more action than Taylor does, his role is significantly more important.

Question is, can Andre Carter be better than what we saw last year, or is it a what you see is what you get kind of thing?

That is the silver lining in not drafting a DLineman. It will let us evaluate Carter and Montgomery and Golston longer.

Problem is, if none of them turn out to be worth anything, we are one more year further back in redeveloping the line.

It's very pessimistic to believe we won't get any help from those guys, but I doubt we get more than one quality starter.

Re: Any News on Andre Carter?

you would think any player would have an adjustment period, having to switch positions

Re: Any News on Andre Carter?

we'll see what he does in the little time he plays on Saturday. I think he'll be buzzing all around the field against the Titans even though it's just a pre season game.

He'll get a sack too, guaranteed

Re: Any News on Andre Carter?

Wow, you'd think he's going to break the sack record with all the good things said about him.
I am still skeptical of AC. I think AC did not live up to the promise last year, and he has a lot to prove to me. Sure he finished the season well (by the numbers) but his play was still only average at the DE spot.
He is, by far, our best DE option, and he needs to show us what he's made of.

Re: Any News on Andre Carter?

Didnt he say that at the end of last year, the coaching staff finally just let him go. That's what our boy Sam was saying on Riggo last night. For most of the year, they were limiting him to a particular gap to control. Once they let him free lance, he was able to generate pressure on the quarterback.

Doesnt that type of freelancing encourage the offense to run at you on that side?
