Of course there will be some backlash to that presumption...
I think almost everyone* has gotten beyond that particular perception, with some notable and obvious exceptions. Part of moving on is knowing that Carr was a problem. Another part would be to get over the Carr anger and look at the possibility that other positions may have problems.
I have never defended Carr by pointing to the o-line, but as soon as I utter "o-line" I seem to get lumped in that group. In fact, I blamed Carr for our tackle problems before that was a popular opinion (2004). I will go so far as to say Wand and Wade would be our tackles today if not for Carr's poor performance, with a major assist from Pendry.
* almost everyone
gets around the speaking in absolutes fallacy rather handily.
