Sure, when he is covered Carr checks straight down to Dom. Just like he went straight down to Miller his first year. Have you not noticed that teams play us this way for a reason? We will get tons of yards but we don't score. 14 points a game doesn't get it, but everyone points to yards as if they were the same as TD's. If you take away AJ you take away our offense because all we do is dump it to our safety valve.

It tells me that we don't look at options 2 and 3 enough. Why have them in the game if we don't look at them?

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.
If the coaches don't trust Carr to throw into coverage that tells me a lot about what they think of his ability to win those battles.
