Default Old Hype

This year, it's all about VY, RB, and Matt Leinhart. Every year it's somebody else and I just want to show some of you this link:

http://www.geocities.com/davidcarrpage/updates.html
(Click on the "Honors" link when you get there.)

Here are 2 of the quotes from back then:

"He's a great quarterback. He moves around real well, makes all the throws and plays with a lot of confidence. He was a lot of fun to watch ... and I anticipate him being a top pick in next year's draft. It gives you a really good idea of what kind of player he's going to be. It showed me that he's got not only great talent but great heart. He never quits, always keeps fighting." -- John Elway, who attended the Colorado State game where Carr directed a thrilling fourth quarter comeback.

"Carr was 21-of-34 passing for 340 yards and four TD passes in his excellent game against Oregon State. Carr was on target with intermediate passes and long passes and showed touch on shorter passes. He is a tremendous LEADER who really inspires the Bulldogs." -- ESPN Draft Expert Mel Kiper, Jr.

Sometimes good QBs play for really bad teams. It's a team sport. It's funny how a great OL and good defense can make a QB a "leader".

I really hope we put together a great team, and I hope Carr has incredible success in the years to come.

Good probability you will be asking the same question about VY in three or four years.

He had a back in Parrish Gaines that could take it to the house.
Had very good coaches and a GREAT qb coach in Tedford
And his Defense was not great it would just come up with INTS and Sacks at the right time, to get them back on the field.

He is a good QB and I cant wait for this season to roll around. He needs more HELP.
I didn't know any of that, but it's about what I would've guessed. If his team sucked, everyone would have thought he was the biggest problem. Thanx for the info.
