My take on yesterday (from a "Carr homer"/"Dayne hater"'s perspective
1. Carr sucked yesterday, I mean sucked. He could have cost us the game with his 3 fumbles. All on him.
2. The pass protection wasn't good at all, and no I am not trying to bail Carr by saying this. I remember one of his sacks yesterday I timed it he had less than two seconds before he was hit.
3. DeMeco, I mean what can you not say about this kid. He's a class act with amazing instincts and is all over the field. He is one of the few if not the only consistent positive we have to build off of.
4. Mario. Mario didn't put up amazing stats or anything like that, but he was disruptive in the 1st half at least. I remember one play where he threw the tight end like a rag doll and was in the backfieldd before Brooks could hand the ball off, I remember the announcers saying they thought it was a miscommunication on the Raiders' part, nope, it was Mario.
5. Dayne Wow. The guy impressed me yesterday. I never liked the guy but IMO he carried us to victory, literally. I didn't see many big holes set up by the line, what I did see was Dayne carrying defenders and breaking out of piles to make plus yards.
6. The Secondary. Where have these guys been all season? They made plays and didn't give up big plays like we've been used to seeing.
So just to recap, Carr sucked bigtime yesterday and I am now starting to believe we need to go in a different direction at QB. At the beginning of the season I said I would give him at least one season, but all of the fumbles are inexcuseable. Unless a miracle happens and he lights it up the rest of the season, I want to see someone else under center next season. DeMeco, Mario, and our secondary looked good to me and I hope there is something there to build on for the future. As far as the O line, hopefully if Sherman leaves after this season Kubiak can do a better job of managing the O line.
