This is only going to inflame the whole "Carr isnt the answer" arguement.. There is a lot of talk about the so called "parity" in the league. But it is becoming more and more obvious that the parity doesnt really exist anymore. There are definatly the "haves" and the "have-nots". The interesting thing is that if you look at the haves, there is one thing that sticks out.. and that is the QB position. The playoff teams are: Patriots Bengals Steelers Colts Jaguars Broncos Giants Redskins Bears Panthers Buccaneers Seahawks These are the top 12 QBs #1 Peyton Manning #2 Carson Palmer #3 Big Ben #4 Matt Hasselback #5 Matt Schaub #6 Tom Brady #7 Jake Plummer #8 Trent Green #9 Drew Brees #10 Brad Johnson #11 Jake Delhomme #12 Mark Brunell notice that only 4 of the 12 arent in the playoffs. Schaub (falcons) Green (KC) Brees (SD) and Johnson (Vikes). Of those 4.. their teams are 10-6, 9-7, 9-7, and 8-8. (Schaub is the 8-8 but I dont think he really counts.. Vick is their QB). Anyway.. that means that 8 of the 12 teams in the playoffs have one of the best QBs in the league. Of the 4 teams that dont have a top QB, the Bears and Bucs have the top 2 defenses in the league. WHat you can safely say by looking at this.. is that the QB position is VERY important to being a playoff team. It is POSSIBLE to squeak into the playoffs without a top 10 QB.. but having a top 10 QB just about insures a playoff berth. They also talk about how the AFC is a better conferance than the NFC. And looking at the top QBs, 7 of the top 12... (8 of the top 10) are AFC QBs. This worries me. Specifically because we are apparently going for an offensive minded head coach. But we are keeping Carr as our QB. Now.. I like Carr.. I think he could become a solid NFL QB, but can he be a top 10 QB? If he cant.. that means that we need to depend on our defense to put us in contention.. and if we are going with an offensive minded coach, that means that our defense may not ever be on the same level as the Bears and Bucs.
