I think the kind of pass that Carr throws may be why there is a problem. Remember, he throws a lazer, not an arching pass. As a result he throws a rope that might well be defended by a defender simply being in the line of the throw. In addition his passes are going to have more variability with minor differences in angle because of the velocity. The upside is the defender just simply doesn't have the time to get to the ball. On an arching pass the receiver has to wait a lot of times for the ball to get there and the defender can catch up. Elway had a similar problem. If there is daylight, then he can get it to him. Part of it is timing and having to rush the throw. I tend to agree with a lot of people that this year will be a better indication of what Carr can do if he has the time given the changes in the O-line.
