All season David Carr was in the top of the NFL in QB rating, but we were not winning games. Many veteran NFL fans and sports writers analyzed this anomaly and concluded that it was because he didn't have "IT". They could not describe what "IT" was, just that people like Vince Young have it, some kind of magic that makes the team win no matter how well or poorly the QB is playing. Well, last week against the Raiders, David Carr finally found "IT". He threw for -4 yards, fumbled the ball 3-4 times, got sacked over and over, but through it all, he would not give in. The "IT" was radiating through him like a beacon, lighting his teams way to victory. Now the same sports guru's are claiming that the "W" doesnt matter, its how well the QB plays. Suddenly the "IT" factor is irrelevant. Over the last week I have done some personal research on QBs that seem to have "IT" and I have discovered What "IT" is. It the presense of the following attributes. An impenetrable O-Line. A running back that is a 50 yd threat. A secondary that does not get burned for 2 identical 60 yd plays almost back to back to the same receiver. A punter who can kick longer than 25 yard punts. A FG kicker who does not miss as many as he makes. A fullback who does not drop the ball every other time he touches it (in critical situations) A coach that allows the QB to audible when he needs to. An all pro wide receiver who doesn't drop every pass that hits him in the numbers. A center that does not step on his foot at least 3 times per game. And as simple as this sounds, a fan base that actually wants him to succeed. Since David Carr has had to work all year without any of these attributes, Its no wonder we only have 4 wins. I propose that any NFL QB would have the exact same results as DC if they were on this team with This O-Line. Sincerely, Homer <--- which incidentally is not a cut down , it's another word for (Fan)atic.
