Re: Life Without Schaub: What if?
As with all things, the truth is somewhere in between...I have 0 doubt that the pounding Carr took had some kind of impact on his development as an NFL qb. He had alot on his plate.
-A rookie learning how to play in the NFL at the most important position.
-The face of an expansion franchise and city that was football starved for 10 years
-The annointed leader of a team full of practice squad quality players on offense... many of which didn't even deserve to be in the NFL.
Then there were the expectations as the #1 overall pick...
I could definitely see how all of that could break a guy down to where you just don't enjoy playing the game anymore........................especially after getting lit up for a good 2 seasons.
but i also think that he was mentally weak too though...moreso than normal to where he likely couldn't handle being under the microscope he was put under. In the end, I don't think it wouldv'e taken much for him to wilt.
