I disagree that Jacksonville and Tampa were fair tests.
In one of the games, none of the current D-line were playing (no Baire, plus Payne and Walker out) AND
only one of the current O-line was playing his current position.
In terms of targets, Andre Johnson dropped several big, catchable balls and Domanick didn't play in one game and Hollings looked horrible. Hollings looked better last night behind a real O-line ... why not say Ragone would also improve behind a real O-line ... with real support.
I think Carr is special and better (not surprising since Carr was a first overall pick and Ragone was approx. the 100th), but Carr has also had a lot more opportuniity to develop. Don't give up on Ragone yet.
