    On the opposite side....Albert was buldozing THREE Dallas lineman into the backfield. It was scary.

    Yes you wouldn't know it from the stat line necessarily, but Haynesworth has been playing real good.

    Oh and btw did you see how high Carter jumped during his celebration? Not bad for a big guy, he's jacked!

    Albert has been playing like a beast in his limited reps. Keeping him and Mark Anderson in those roles (i.e. crucial pass rushing downs), seems to be paying huge dividends. They are morphing into something. They have a real chance to develop into a very complimentary and balanced team.

    Carter is coming on strong. I predicted in the preseason that he would finish with double-digit sacks. I still think he will. Aside from great athleticism, even at his older age, he seems very intelligent. I've watched him read some plays and keep the D from being gashed. I like him a lot and think big things will happen for him as the season progresses.

    I've been very happy with Carter. He's played the run very well and has been getting a good push.

    He gets good push on almost every play. He also has a very quick first step, though he doesn't consistently try to use it. I'm still predicting double-digit sacks by the end of the season.

    I have questioned his impact and conditioning, but he had a good game. Certainly a step in the right direction.

    It may only be for 10 snaps a day but he really can push the pocket.

    Very good rotation of Wilfork, Love and Haynessworth.

    Thumbs up.

    the Conditioning aspect is why he was INACTIVE for some games not too long ago... what??? you want to put him on th Injury Report w/ a ("SEVERELY OUT OF SHAPE") being the reason. ppl here were on his arse b/c they claimed he was "dogging it" NO he wasn't he was OUT OF SHAPE therefore BB benched him until he started to become more fit. The dude is trying and he did have a Gr8 game:cool:

    awesome moment!! Loved his reaction when he congratulated Carter too. He looks like he's enjoying himself, well at least during that moment..

    That's a bit of exaggeration, but it is true that he was tripled-teamed and that allowed Carter to beat his man one on one.

    Yup...... AH was triple-teamed and still pushed the pile. :cool:

    Stats may not say it, but dude really changes the way our defense is played.

    Do you want to provide some evidence that the team just made up his back injury, or no?

    Yah....looked better on TV. Still pretty impressive seeing one guy occupy that much attention and hold his own.

    I'd be thrilled if Carter ended up with double digit sacks. Regardless, he has been our most consistent D End by miles this year.

    You touched on it, but, the intelligence factor is huge. You can really tell he has good field and situation awareness.
