Default Carr=Kerry Collins

The more i see this guy the more im reminded of kerry collins. People compare him to favre but the only comparison might be the arm. Like collins, hes got the potential to be a good quaterback and maybe be the qb for a superbowl team but i dont think he will ever be a superstar quaterback. (manning mcnaab culpepper) i guess it was just the luck we were dealt when he was the best quaterback available with our 1st pick. some get aikman some get couch and some get carr. My point is, i feel we should try to get a stud running back ala benson and try to fill the d holes and oline holes through free agency and next years draft. Were not getting reggie bush next year and we could probably get benson this year and find a comparable if not better dlineman in next years deeper draft. What do you guys think?

Nah, Carr will be fine.

The O-Line needs to allow us to count to one-one-thousand, two-one thousand, three-one thousand before two guys come crashing into Carr. Give him some time, like he should have against the Bears, and I think Carr will start looking pretty good.

He's following an Aikman-like time line isn't he?

I agree 100%...the man doesnt have time to get a good throw off (not many anyway) He hasnt looked confident AT ALL the last couple of games...almost a scared look, not knowing if he is going to get killed.We really need to get the O-Line fixed,and a serious a $ $ kicker on the defensive side of the ball.Our defense did a graet job yesterday,but our offense lost us that game.

I think Carr has the athletic skills to play but he does not have what it takes to be a leader.

I think it's hard to judge a QB when Seth Wand is running backwards into him.

carr isn't a recovering alcoholic and has more physical ability...collin's career has already been decided carr hasn't...you never know maybe with a real franchise LT blocking for him he'll turn into the next aikman

I think that Carr has the physical tools to become a star QB, just not the coaching and support as of yet. His fundamentals are lousy right now, which is a sign that he is not being coached well. If he can get some confidence in his O-line then he would probably stand in the pocket longer and make more plays. I do think that he has to learn to take some shots to make plays, not just getting into the fetal position as soon as he see someone coming for him.

You know (as a similarity) when you pet a dog that has been abused when they were younger, they flinch? This almost seems like what is happening with David. You get sacked so often...you get used to it, but you'll also worry about it.

On a side note: this strange post actually is on my 666th post.
Weird.

Without protection Carr will always look like Kerry Collins. When we finally see Carr given a comfortable level of protection on a regular basis then we'll be able to tell what he's really capable of.

Assuming of course that he's still alive by the time that happens.

If most people don't remember, Aikman didn't really have the greatest start with Dallas. I think they lost all their games that year. If not they won a couple. Too young to remember that one. Could use some insite from the wiser.

Carr is a good QB, and will be a great QB when he gets a solid o-line in front of him. We've seen what he can do when he gets time to throw (Vikings game, Raiders game). The problem is that he's not getting the time to throw. Also the coaching philosiphy and play calling are holding him back IMO. Like a guy on 610 am said, '' the coaches are turning a thoroughbred stallion into a galloping pony.''

True. Freeney was beating his man right off the snap. The QB has no chance when the D line is getting off so fast.
