smh at this Lee situation.. terrible, just terrible
Rather it happen now, and adjust the defense or whatever needs be than his happen at crunch time week 13.
injuries happen that's the nature of the beast. Just now know Lee just assured us he is not what we are looking for.
week 4 vs. Saints
Sunday Night Game
ive been trackin tix on ticketliquidator.com.. they have been reasonably priced compared to stubhub, vividseats etc.
plus i can use ebates and grab that 6% cash back lol
that's actually not too bad, what would kill me is the flight, travel and hotel
we play the Eagles on Thanksgiving this year right?
yeah thanks, agreed I believe he is one of the best LBs in the NFL, hands down, sucks he can't stay healthy
it's a huge loss, I can think of so many other players we could rather lose than Lee. Really if we lose Lee, Romo, Dez or Tyron Smith it could get ugly.
it's crazy how his career has went
At UNC he was a stud, had amazing athleticism and still retained almost all of it even after his injury. When Lee went down in 2012, Carter IMO was the best player on defense that year other than Hatcher. He completely balled out at the ILB in the 3-4. One game that truly stood out was Atlanta. He was flying all over the field and there was this one pass to Julio Jones and he actually ran Julio down, it was amazing to see a LB that was probably 10-15 yards away from the play come out of nowhere to catch this beast WR.
With Carter like you said it isn't the physical or athletic stuff, that's all there and some. It's the mental side of the game he needs to get. If he can ever get his head right, I think we have a Pro Bowl caliber LB. In many ways Carter reminds me of Lavonte David. It's one of the reasons I thought he was best suited to play WILL LB in this 4-3 scheme because of his athleticism and we could use that speed and quickness to blitz him more.
As of right now, they want Carter to play outside. Who knows, maybe he plays inside but if he can take the starting job on the weakside, I would like to see Holloman as the MIKE, Hitchens as the SAM and Carter as the WILL. One position Dallas evaluates really well is LB. Even the LBs they didn't draft but wanted too, they just didn't have the picks to take them because they were used in trades, but guys like Navarro Bowman and Bobby Wagner were very high on their board. Dallas knows their LBs and it's actually one of the reasons I think Hitchins will be a good player. Same with Holloman, that kid is highly athletic and you saw that on tape, if he were bigger he probably would've went from the 2nd or 3rd round, but he is undersized so fell in the draft. In this Tampa scheme, Holloman could be a star because it is a system that ignores undersized players and looks for speed, exactly what Holloman is.
