I was in my car listening to 610 at 7 this morning and David Carr came on for a suprise interview after he had just finished his early morning workout. I was extremely please/somewhat suprised to actually hear some real insight from him instead of the usual "we are disapointed" or "my guys are still fightin their tails off" type cliche quotes. He came out and said that they have been forced to run max protection every play and while they are doing this they basically eliminate the majority of what they can do on offense. He talked about how he only has 2 recievers going anywhere down the field, one running a fade or out towards the sidelines and one over the center of the field and with max protection on they either have to be open, which is not likely, or he looks for dominick for a dump or has to eat the ball. He said (roughly) that he is unable to try and get the ball down the field because they cant run anything that is not max protection or he will go down. While I was watching last night and listening to him this morning I am sure that David Carr is the absoulte last of our problems. If he is given time and a reciever is even remotely open he fires a strike. People will come on this board and try to say fancy things like "he doesnt go through his progressions" or "he cant read the defense" but he does all he can with the horrid system we have set up around him. I saw actually somewhat relax in the pocket and actually go through his progressions and reads (all 3 of them) for the first time and he was blindsided by Grant Wistrom from behind. People will say he held onto the ball to long but do you watch the best quarterbacks in the league? They have time to look for the their 2nd and 3rd options without being leveled. If Manning lined up behind our line and dropped back he would blindsided in the exact same way...watch the Colts play and see if Manning has to "get the ball out in 2.3 seconds" the way Carr is forced to. I was just dumbfounded by the fact that for the last two years we havent addressed personal and instead all we read about from the team is how we are going to work on short timing routes to get the ball out of Davids hands as quickly as possible. Thats just poor overall vision from our management and coaches-you dont address the fact that you have a terrible but instead try to devise an offensive scheme where you continually have to drop back and get the ball off to a reciever or rb only 5 yards away very quickly so you dont get sacked. I mean I thought it was embarassing that all offseason that I kept reading that we were blowing horns off in practice to tell David to get rid of the ball----BLOCK FOR HIM AND LET HIM MAKE A PLAY. When he has time he has as much ability as anyone, he throws hard and crisp over the middle of the field and the throws that he sails are because he would rather not throw an interception towards a reciever who isnt even close to open. If you watched Bradfords fades towards the sidelines...my god he cant get open. He can sometimes steam roll down the field but he cant shake anyone in an intermediate route. From the interview and his play I hope Carr keeps his head up...because he is getting nothing work with. Period.
