Disagree.

Carr had all the tools but the Texans let him down. On many levels, they let him down. I'm not saying Carr would've been a superstar, but he could've been very good. Gets back to right player/right team/right coach thing.

What would P. Mannings career look like if he played for Marty Schottenhiemer? Probably still very good but maybe not GOAT level of good.
