DE Andre Carter has been nominated for the Hardest Working Man of Week 10 award. Here is the nomination blurb on Carter:
Helping the Patriots avoid their first three-game losing streak since 2002 — extending a streak to 148 games (fourth-longest in NFL history) without losing three straight — was Carter, a newcomer to New England this season. Carter registered 4.5 sacks in a 37-16 victory over the Jets. Carter’s effort on back-to-back plays midway through the fourth quarter helped boost his sack total. On a second-and-9 play and then on a third-and-15 situatiion, Carter corralled Jets QB Mark Sanchez. The 4.5 sacks are a career high for Carter, who also set a new Patriots single-game record with that total breaking the mark shared by Chris Slade and Andre Tippett(3.5 apiece).
Now get this: Andre Carter is up against, among others, former Patriot Albert Haynesworth. Yep, the same Albert Haynesworth who was released last week. Albert Haynesworth, the Hardest Working Man of Week 10? We can’t let that happen! Click HERE to vote for Andre Carter!
