    MARKELL CARTER

    Is now the time we see him get promoted to the active roster? with A. Carter suffering a season ending injury I think he plays soon and will be there in the play-offs. He supposedly has packed on like 15 pounds and recieved a raise doubling his pay. NE needs pass rushers!!

    Re: MARKELL CARTER

    I definitely liked the fact that they paid him more and that he has been receiving such high praise in practice in terms of what they think of him as a player.  Whether it translates onto the field remains to be seen, but you can't help but love the potential and the fact that he probably plays with a chip on his shoulder given his draft status and the school he played at.  I think it makes sense to promote him just so at the very least he can get reps in practice with the active roster, but I trust the coaching staff will make the right decision.

    It's interesting, I've never seen a player win practice player of the week as often as him. Six weeks in a row right now I think. Apparently they've doubled his pay twice after other teams have tried to pick him up so he now basically makes what a guy on the roster would make. However, when they had the opportunity last week they promoted Moore instead which is not a ringing endorsement.

    Impressive in practice is just a nice way of sayin he isn't ready yet to play with the big dogs.  I have heard the impressive in practice phrase used with Ocho, Price, Slater and Underwood.  Price is gone, Slater and Underwood arent making any type of impact and Ocho, well he just got his first td towards the end of the season. 

    It would be nice for Carter to come in and have a major impact.

    I liked the little bit of film I saw of him--I think there was a highlight film on the web at draft time.  Would be a nice story if he made it.  We'll see.

    Re: MARKELL CARTER

    Would be a nice story but I don't see him up until next year. He looked nice in the pre-season but it was pretty clear there are a lot of holes in his game. The really encouraging part is they keep giving him raises to keep him on the team, so he's obviously learning and developing. I see Guyton and/or Cunningham (performance based) gone next season and maybe even Anderson or Nin (contract cost) and Carter coming up as a rotational backup. Much like what Fletcher's role was last year (well when he was on the field)

    They had both him and Cunningham bulk up to play end in a 43. When they originally drafted him I thought he was going to be an outside linebacker project, looks like he and Cunningham are projects - just not in a linebacker roll. I'd be surprised if they put him out there at this time of year.

    Re: MARKELL CARTER

    Eric Moore steps up and play, he was on the last play against Denver on the -26 yard sack against Timmy Tim, he didn't record the sack but was there.

    Moore did a good job last season and he played 3 different possitions when he played last season, sub rusher, 34 small DE and OLB.  Now taking for Carter he should be able to create a pass rush.  I like Moore (the underdog type).

    If M. Carter was ready he would had been playing when Cunningham went on IR and they would not had signed Moore, just my opinion.

    I rather see Silvestro, he's not as quick as M. Carter but he's a strong kid (6'3" 267 lbs) who's best when playing run D.  He's a stronger, better efford Cunningham IMO.  UDFA who has everything to prove and gain, if given that chance.

         Could be. It could also mean extended playing time for Shawn Ellis. It would be great if he could "step up".

    I saw Ellis trying to run after Tebow yesterday and give up after 10 yards, no chance. Moore did a good job when he was in there, stayed with him and was right there 30 yards downfield on that last sack.

    I don't like Ellis one bit, not sure why he's still on the team.  We'll I do he has that big DE role but I just don't like him or think he's added much to that D.  Maybe he turns it on in the playoffs.

    I like Moore, liked him last year and I still do.  Can say what you will about him but he won't give up on a play plus he's played well enough to be Carter's replacement.

    Re: MARKELL CARTER

    I think it's unfair to expect Carter, Silvestro and maybe even Moore to come in and try to help the D tread water at 4-3 DE.  But with that said, at least they have some bodies learning the system on the practice squad, although I'm not sure if M Carter and Silvestro project to 4-3 DE.  Regardless of what the solution is, it seems that they will need to play more 3-4 than 4-3 down the stretch given their current depth with guys who can play 3-4 DE.

    I was a big fan of Ellis and was screaming for us to go get him - oh well.... :-(

    If they had the players to play a 34 why move to a 43?  Truth is they don't.

    You might get away with Ellis/Deadrick at one DE spot, VW NT, Brace at the other DE spot but who plays LBs?  Nink they tried that, Anderson is a 43 DE has never played OLB so while they might be able put together a serviceble, average DL the LBs is another story.

Posted by Pats7393[/QUOTE] Good point on Silvestro. Given what we have on the roster and who is playing, I am less concerned with our run D, and more concerned with getting pressure on the opposing QB. I know,weird thing to say after the Denver game, but I think that game is an anomaly. The pats have been playing good run D all year. What complicates it is you had a guy in acarter that could do both effectively. Now once again we have specialists and guys really not round in both aspects that requires us to sub, or , sacrifice one for the other. I too like Moore. I think most of us do. He's done nothing but produce when he has had chances. I want to see he and anderson as our de's, with deaderick coming in to spell them, Ellis hasn't shown much, but he's still a large, warm body that is decent in rotation. If we can get something from him come playoff time, that is icing. Looking at personnel for a 3-4, why not vw, flanked by deaderick and Warren?or brace and Ellis? Not optimal, but I think we can pull it off with our current DL. The LB is the big question here. We just don't have the horses to run it unless possibly you stick mayo/spikes/Fletcher inside and nink/Silvestro/mcarter outside. That isn't too bad of a lineup. We could also use Fletcher and mayo outside to give us more speed on the edges. I think we have some flexibility to run it.

Posted by Pats7393[/QUOTE] The way I see it is they are caught in the middle. I don't see the personnel to be dominant or highly effective in either scheme. I like anderson and Moore, but they are not dominant ends. Most of andersons sacks and pressure come very late in games or are coverage sacks. He is so-so against the run. I want to see what he can do with more playing time. Personally I would rather see us commit to stopping the run...best personnel to do this. Regardless, I think BB is going to have to tap his creative jiuces to manufacture pressure given the talent. We have seen a lot of plain Jane this year to date. I would like him to let Fletcher and mayo get upfield more or even both of them.

    Agree PL, they are not set up to be dominant either way I'm taking the lesser of the two evils.  I think if they get run on now and are bad against passes on eary downs in a 34 would be even worse.  34 is all about the LBs, BB just doesn't have LBs to play that D.
