Right now, he's the weakest link on a strong Defense...and we all know how that worked out for Roc Alexander.
The question is, can Carter get it together, or are we going to start seeing a lot more of Porter in Nickel situations? Porter plays pretty far off-man, just like Carter, but is he a better player?
I have to agree that Carters game has slipped, and not just the last game. He has been getting burned by the bigger WRs . He is just a little too short for the 6-4 to 6-6 guys, and they can jump over him, which is where he gets burnt. Harris has been playing better and better.
I think that Porter is going to be worked back into the D for the playoffs, so expect him to get back on the field more the next 2 weeks, and Carter to take the nickle in the playoffs.
Although we have had injuries this year it seems that there has always been someone ready to step up, or step back in after healing up.
Next Man UP!
