It looks like another Quarterback change is afoot in Carolina, as David Carr is getting his 2nd (and probobly final) shot at proving he is an NFL QB.
Okay, the real reason for the change is an injury, but this may be a blessing in disguise for the Panthers. Jake Delhomme, while solid at times, has never been a big-time QB. If he didn't have Steve Smith, he'd be about the skill equivalent of a Kelly Holcomb or Gus Frerotte.
David Carr, on the other hand, is unproven. Many say that problems in Houston were not his fault. Their team was flat out atrocious until this season. Nevertheless, Schaub stpes in and the team is "magically" 2-1. So, was it the improvement of the team, or the QB? Carolina fans better hope it was the team.
But, it remains to be seen if David Carr can function at the also-subpar Carolina Panthers. Their 2-1 record should not fool you. Their wins have come over a vastly underachieving St.Louis team and a hapless Atlanta. They have lost to the Texans (no surprise). So, one all is said and done, they should be shooting for about a 8-8, and that's in the NFC.
What to expect: David Carr has an average game, and the Panthers put back in Delhomme. Carr might be the guy you want at backup QB, but if you put him as a starter, it's no secret he'd be in the bottom 8.
