The reason I asked about Brady is, if you look at Carr's and Brady's 04 numbers they are VERY similar. They each threw for ~ 3500 yards, they each made about the same number of throws and completions, 60%+ completion rate and 14 INTs. Where you will see a difference is TDs. (the interesting thing is if you look at the top 7 or 8 QBs the same GENERAL thing holds true). So, if he is throwing for approximatly the same amount of yards, the throws and completions are close and have nearly the same INTs, but only differ in the number of TDs, what do you think may be the issue???? Could it be the scheme and coaching dicisions in the red zone??? Ya think! And lets not forget that ALL the other QBs had MUCH better O-lines to work behind. So to trash David for what he is doing would be a large error. He is ALLREADY performing at or near the top QB levels in the league. Do we want him to get more TDs....of course, but to do that requires the right red zone calls being made so that the score happens. He is making all the throws between the twenties that is why his numbers are similar to the others, but the OC is making mistakes inside the twenty.
As I've stated before I think the sacks have alot to do with the difference in the td #s. Think about it sacks are drive KILLERS
. How many times have yall seen a drive stall due to a sack, they take you out of a managable 2nd down and put you in 3rd and longs. just think about all the td opportunities we have missed out on due to this problem. A stable oline would do wonders for our team, not only will be able to put more points on the board, but itll will help out the defense tremedously, just do to the fact that we'll have much better field position.
