    If any team could help his career, it would be the Panthers.

    Have to laugh at the thought of Carr in Cleveland during winter.
    As if he doesn't have enough problems with bad mechanics, just add snow and freezing temps to the mix!

    This is where I thought he might go. This is the team I thought we had the best trade possibilities with to start. They tanked once Delhomme got hurt and they need a backup. He'd probably play more here if Jake is banged up compared to anywhere. Of course that doesn't mean it is a good thing if he is having to play.

    Just imagine what taking the shackles off of AJ is going to do for our passing game.

    I know. I'm completely fired up about seeing him take over this next season. I'm expecting big things...so much so it will be interesting to see how the other WRs do catch wise. I think Walters or someone else (rookie?) is going to have some room to roam in the middle of the field if AJ goes off.

    I agree fellas. I can see a very nice year for Owen as well. I really like this kid as our TE.:dance2:

    I expect more consistant play from AJ no doubt, but to expect better numbers is ludacris. Carr would only look for AJ, while Schaub will hopefully not lock onto only AJ. It would be nice to see a balenced passing attack rather than AJ being the only reciever on our team with more than 30 catches or so.

    I thought that's what Steve smith does best turn a little hitch into a 30 yard reception.

    I said it before too i really think Carolina is the best place for Carr to go and a good fit for what they do. You've got Deangelo out of the backfield, hopefully a heathy Deshaun Foster to go between the tackles, Steve Smith taking the short routes and making them into big plays and a reliable guy to go acorss the middle in Keyshawn.

    They've got a solid Oline and i'm not sure how they Feel About Delhomme after last year. He really seemed to struggle and i couldn't point my finger on what it was. Maybe he had some lingering injury or just had some sort of mental block but i didn't see the sort of Moxy he had when he helped lead the team to the Superbowl. Add that too your backup is Chris Weinke? Still. I am sure Delhomme will still get the benefit of the doubt to start the season though. Might get some encouragment from the #2 Pro bowl pick Julius Peppers.

    That aside....I'm stoked for the draft and am excited to see how the offense looks next year. IF we don't get a receiver to battle out with Walter as the #2 somehow i am not worried. Because teams are going to have to account for Owens and Green out of the backfield. Hopefully a solid running gmae will allow us to use some double moves and play action over the top.:yahoo:

    His number of receptions will go down, no doubt. But instead of having a 10 yard average, 103 catches for 1030 yards or whatever, he's going to have 80 catches for 1500 yards. We're going to use him as a WR, and not a TE.

    Getting alot of catches isn't exactly what I was thinking when I thought he could havce better stats. I am talking just plain out taking over some games and TDs. 5 Tds isn't enough in my book. You can dink and dunk 10 catches a game to some guys but AJ has more potential in my book to break open games and get some more scores. Yards and scores. You are right on the rest of the team though and hopefully the above opens it up for the TE and other WRs.

    who cares where Carr visits...i just think its funny that he is still unemployed and scrambling for a job....so much for the 'he will be picked up instantly' homer-theory

    He is good at that but that isn't how they have always used his speed and strength. He was running alot posts and deep routes and plain out running guys. He also ran digs across the middle and was catching balls in stride. There is only so many times you can run a hitch and expect a guy to get a ton off of it. You can keep trying it but it won't be your bread and butter.

    Not to mention Schaub's arm is substantially weaker ... I'm not expecting to see a lot of precisely placed long balls out of this guy. We hope and expect better vision and decision making which if delivered will make a lot of positive difference, but Schaub's athleticism and arm do not compare to Carr's.

    I personally hope to see Carr in Carolina because that is truly a team that is (a) relatively established, and (b) has a lot of weapons and we will be able to see how good Carr does or doesn't look in such an atmosphere. I'd compare Carr to a more cautious version of Jake Plummer--inconsistent and poor decision making but can put up big success in the right system and surrounded by the right personnel (as Plummer did in Denver that one year.)
