He won't put up huge numbers, but with his hands and route running he will move the chains.
You can't say it's all Carr, look at the number of receptions and yards Banks put on Gaffney when he was in:
09/21 Kansas City 2-18
10/26 @Indianapolis 2-26
11/02 Carolina 3-30
11/16 @Buffalo 3-40
11/23 New England 1-13
11/30 Atlanta 2-28
That's not exactly burning it up. And in a couple of those games where Carr got taken out, Carr had already throw to Gaffney a couple of times.
Like I said, it's not all on Carr, it has to be both or something else. Gaffney had his best day with Carr tossing him the ball.
