very good points dajesus. i would also say that robert baker gets to prove something he has always wanted to, that he can actually play great in a regualr season game instead of a meaningless preseason one. i actually wouldnt worry about chris carter being in shape cus he only needs to be able to catch a few balls per game and he has always kept himself in good shape in off season. it has only been a few months since he worked out but overall, he would be a distraction and guys like baker have more to prove. I am also intrigued that we keep margin hooks hangin around. he didnt look bad in preseason. but a long way to go just the same.Originally posted by Dajesus
At this point you don't sign Chris Carter. I was all for it at the beginning of the season, but right now no way here is why:
The team is rolling and looks to the elite team in the conference. That is a fragile situation you don't bring in a personality as big as CC out of fear he screws up your locker room.
Chamber is only out 1 week he is the play maker at WR. OG is the role player and we have 2 guys already on the roster that can step up and take his place.
This is a running football team! We win with RW. You bring is Cartrer along with Chambers, and mcMichael and you might start to get greedy. We don't have the QB to be able to throw 40 times and win.
It would take him a month to get in to football shape and to understand Norv's playbook. To much money and risk for a guy that might only be productive in 6 or 7 games.
