First off, wouldn't AJ be the first option a good portion of the time? Secondly, Derrick Armstrong was inactive and instead we had the unstoppable Matt Murphy active. What does that tell you about the game plan? The QB's job is to execute the game plan given to him. Lastly, Capers specifically said on channel 13 (according to people I know who saw it) that Carr executed the game plan exaclty how it was drawn up. Carr is certainly not blameless and he definetely checks down from #1 to last resort quickly, but the coaches are ultimately responsible, just like a manager is responsible for "coaching" his or her employee's.
