Stop complaining about that! It shows that he's going through progressions and making good decisions. Davis averaged 8.6 yards per completion on those checkdowns. IT's not as if they were wasted plays. Carr is finding open players and giving them opportunities to make plays. That is a good thing!!!
These short passes to Davis are not the naked swing passes that SD uses with LT or that Aikman used for years with Emmitt Smith. Those are simply safety valves that rely solely on the ability of those backs to make something special happen. Davis is actually running a route and part of the passing offense most of the time.
