    I didn't expect them to take David Carr. I would imagine that they're pretty happy with Tarvaris Jackson.

    By the way, who is that in your avatar?

    Could be telling the truth...could be trying to diminish his value. (Trying to be optimistic here)


    Come on Oakland!

    Ditto, it's almost odd.

    Crazy, bonkers hater. Just like Brad Childress. That guy's been a Carr Hater from day one!



    Thanks, DSteve. I wouldn't mind Okoye. His name makes me happy, even if he weren't as good as he likely is.

    Well, I have to admit that he's been right about Carr from day one, so I give him his props.

    I'm kinda stoked about it, myself. I think Schaub will flourish with Kubes and Sherman. And I'm so glad Plummer retired, or this deal probably wouldn't have gone down.

    I remember the side-arm delivery being discussed when they drafted Carr.

    vinny, both of us have been saying the same thing for going on 3 years...i have had problems with Carr's fundamentals since Day One.

    it took someone outside 'the loop' to finally call a spade a spade. remember casserley allaying all our fears on his horrible release point. they were going to change it then there was the whole dad at practice drama and all that junk.

    thank god we arent in Romper Room anymore...Schaub delivers the ball overhead and actually reminds me of Peyton as far as releases go.

    Remember the ladders? Remember how they just disappeared the next year in training camp like everything was fixed and working fine? I always thought that was weird. Chris Palmer (who also had something of a reputation of being a QB guru before his stint as our offensive coordinator) went through all the trouble of these photo-op practices and talked about correcting his mechanics. Then the very next year none of that was happening and David was back to throwing like he'd always thrown.

    Did Palmer just give up on trying to fix that through coaching? In retrospect was that an early sign that we had a QB who either wasn't going to or wasn't able to change what he was doing wrong?

    I think they eventually decided to just let Carr do what worked for him, mechanics be damned. It works for VY.

    (P.S. I know it never worked very well for David, which makes me think he didn't adapt to the new throwing mechanics very well.)

    In my mind.
    I'll dissent from Brad Childress.

    I've seen this argument too many times and too many times proven to be false. Unorthadox throwing motions don't equate into inability to make a wide range of throws. From Stabler to Kosar to currently Rivers and Young, there have been guys making passes work where dozens of traditional arms have failed.

    Besides that... his offense was terrible. The worst one fielded in Minnesota in over 20 years ( since 1984 and that's with Birk, Hutchinson, McKinnie ).
