I don't even know if that was the case. I bet Carr would have been everything we wanted him to be if he had Kubiak from day 1. Someone who had a clue on how to protect him. Someone who could watch him & explain what the problem was & what can be done to help him out.
I'm probably way off, but I feel like David's coaches were telling him, "You're fine man.... we'll fix this." When they should have been saying, "Sure there were some mistakes up front, but you should.... blah, blah, blah."
I think Kubiak's frustration with David, was that he "acted" as if he never learned. During practice, in the film room, I'm sure David was smart enough to grasp the concepts & answer the questions. But on game day, when he was getting smaked around he turtled up.
