I'd take Mr. Checkdown. At least he knows where the outlet receiver is and he won't turn the ball over much. It'd be a defense and running game type of game. Furthermore, I think NFL coaches would take Carr over VY, because they know they can plan around his limitations. VY out there is just too much of a wild card for them. Coaches are control freaks like very few others.
How do you plan around a QB who immediately curls into a ball once the ball is snapped?
