The Forgotten Man: Quinton Carter




People tend to forget about you when your down. I guess its human nature to move on from people when they seem stagnate in their lives, unless you make a resolve not to forget or move on from them.. I choose to remember Quinton Carter, an believe that he will come back strong. The NFL is an uphill battle for every player no matter where you get drafted. There's always change, always competition and if you throw injures in there it makes it even more difficult. I remember when Demaryius Thomas had injury plagued seasons, I also remember in those seasons he showed that he could turn into a really good football player an WR, and with time an patience that's just what he's become.

Take another player in Julius Thomas, people were already skeptical about him because he had little football experience, then he goes and gets himself injured. Insert the negative talk from outsiders an from Bronco fans alike. The biggest impression I remember getting from allot of Bronco fans is that they really didn't believe he would be any good. Now, can I judge someone for not believing in a player who didn't have allot of football experience, who didn't see the Field at all if I'm correct an on top of that got injured?? No, I cant, but I can say that through it all, myself an other fans believed in him an our belief paid off, because with time an patience he emerge from the depths like Uma Thurman in Kill Bill and went nutso on opposing teams. He forced the NFL say Whoa! Who the heck is this basketball player ballin in football.

This is the same feeling I have for Quinton Carter, but with him, he has allot of football experience and is a very good player. He' has all the tools to become an elite SS or FS. He just can't seem to catch a break with his injury same as DT an JT and so many other NFL players, but with time an patience they get healthy an breakout. This doesn't mean I don't like Rahim Moore, I like him allot, but point blank Period, QC is a better safety than he is. An the best player should play if healthy. I refuse to give up on QC, I know once he's healthy he would be the second best safety on the team behind Boss Man Ward. 2011 showed us that he is a big hitter an ball hawk( an interception in back to back playoff games against Brady and Big Ben). He out performed Rahim Moore for the starting job along side Brian Dawkins. Everything he's done as a Sooner and with the Broncos shows IMO that he is the real deal.

This may be his last year to get healthy with the Broncos depending on how John Elway an the coaches view him, but I believe he will an when he does he will raise the physicality and playmaking ability of the back-end even the more. I cant throw a whole bunch of stats in your face from QC because he didn't rack up allot of playing time, all I can do is go off what I've seen from him when he did play. Sometimes a little is allot an allot is to much, In QC's case the little that I've seen from him in the NFL is sufficient enough for me to know the kid will be a beast an is due a breakout year an It might be this year God willing.. I believe one thing, if he's healthy an they have to choose between him an Rahim, Rahim wont be here anymore, that's how good QC really is..
