Carney, who is 5-foot-10, has always shown remarkable decision-making skills, poise and maturity. His passing percentage is down to 54.5 percent this season, but don't expect him to miss a throw in a big spot. Carney's rushed for 486 yards and five touchdowns this year. Like Army, Air Force is banged up this year, but the Falcons showed what its capable of when their option is running smoothly. Air Force opened the year with a 31-30 loss at Tennessee and ran all over the Volunteers.
Tennessee only secured the win when they stopped running back Chad Hall on a pitch from Carney on a two-point conversion with 1:35 left. Air Force hopes the Army game doesn't come down to a two-point conversion. Heck, the Black Knights feel the same.
The game should come down to ball control Air Force has run the ball all year, while Army has struggled on the ground lately. The last thing Army fans need to see is Carney scampering around Michie Stadium.
Let's hope the Black Knights can stop him. Because if Army can stop Carney, they stop Air Force.
After all, he's the guy that makes the Falcons' option go.
