Carr has the best arm of the too qb's. Not even close.

He's going to need to sit and Learn though. Needs to clean up his mechanics.

Also needs to settle a bit. Not be so frantic.

Derrick isn't just David's brother; he plays just like David. He has the same strengths, the same weaknesses. The only difference is he will watch a little more film during the week, and he will throw up on game day.

Throwing up is good. He'll feel better afterwards.

If their last name wasn't the same, nobody would compare them. David was more of a gunslinger with bad mechanics who wasn't great at the mental aspects, lacked commitment to perfecting his craft, and lacked leadership qualities. Derek is a much more polished passer with exceptional mechanics who learned both pro style and spread offenses, excels at reading defenses presnap and breaking down coverage, good field vision and has the leadership qualities and dedication his brother lacked. Derek also produced for his whole career, where David was more of a one year wonder.

Oh and David was seen as a tough guy with terrific poise who would stand in the pocket and take hits. Derek is seen as jittery when pressured.

Exactly the same player though.

Great mechanics? He throws of his back foot a lot and his overall footwork is far from perfect. And he uses his arms too much for throwing, instead of using his whole body.

I agree that he is very different from his brother. And he is a hard worker. But let`s not act like his only problem was his inability to live with pressure. His accuracy is a major area of concern. And although he has a strong arm, he lobs most of his passes, giving defenders a chance to make a play at the ball.

Carr is a project, that imho misses the mental toughness to make it in the NFL.

body language is so similar its scary. this would break me off once & for all as fan of Texans, compounded by fact they could easily traded up to get Manziel or Bridgewater

I would pay to see Derek bring his pa with O'Brien , a no nonsense type guy , to practice . No thanks on the Fresno mafia but I do get bored some days and need a laugh .

The guys last name is Carr. It's not as bad as it would be if his name was Gacy, Rifkin or Dahmer, but I just don't want to see him as a Texan. Sometimes history matters. Either way good luck to him wherever he lands.

But he didn't. Not in the NFL. David was jittery too, in the pocket anyway. Bottom line is Derek will fold under pressure. Playoffs means pressure.

We know this because he did it in college. He is a dump-off passer who excelled against medium to bad competition. When faced with a great defense he just looked rattled and clueless.
