The thing that has impressed me the most about Carr so far this season is his dramatic increase in pocket sense. You don't see him holding on to the ball too long anymore. You see him rolling out in the right directions at the right times to buy himself a few more seconds to make the right throw. In Sunday's game, the lone TD pass was a good example of that. Carr sat in the pocket a few seconds, it started collapsing, so he rolled out. He could have rolled out in the direction of the line of scrimmage in case he wanted to run, but he saw (or sensed) that Dominick Davis was over there to give him a block, so David stepped out around him, and it bought him just enough time to find Bradford. It was a beautiful microcosm (to me) of what Carr is doing right this season that he was messing up in seasons previous. I love it.
