Excellent point. We should be comparing him to another QB that started with an expansion team...

Carr's first two years --
2002 - 233 of 444 (52.5%), 2,592 yards (5.84 per attempt), 9 TDs, 15 INTs, 62.8 rating
2003 - 167 of 295 (56.6%), 2,013 yards (6.82 per attempt), 9 TDs, 13 INTs, 69.5 rating

Couch's first two years --
1999 - 223 of 399 (55.9%), 2,447 yards (6.13 per attempt), 15 TDs, 13 INTs, 73.2 rating
2000 - 137 of 215 (63.7%), 1,483 yards (6.90 per attempt), 7 TDs, 9 INTs, 77.3 rating

Would this be a fair comparison?
