Thread: I laugh at those who think Herbert isnt top prospect.

    Carr is a poor man's of Alex Smith. The knock on Smith was even though he was statistically accurate and didn't throw many picks. He couldn't stretch the field and played conservative to a fault. I see Carr that same way except he's not as good as Alex Smith at this stage.

    Pretty accurate but Smith is definitely a much more cerebral player than Carr. Carr is a whole lot of emotion. I took a few minutes to listen to his interviews over the years and it’s nothing but cheerleader type talk, and of course about his faith .. nothing wrong with that but there isn’t much substance in what he says ..

    To each their own. I don't think Carr's even as good as Alex Smith before Smith got some weapons around him. Hence "Poor man's Alex Smith". Granted, I don't cling onto every tidbit that comes out of the media. But, the "Gruden/Mayock not sold on Carr" stuff isn't completely without basis. It's starting to get legs in more credible and reputable football circles.

    Smith was OK. Never lived up to his #1 overall status. Like Carrbage, not known for pushing the ball downfield.

    Smith was a far better runner than Pussboy and used his legs effectively.

    Smith >> Carr

    Both came from similar one read offenses, they spread the field, just like at Fresno St with Carr, telling him this is where you go. Smith learned offenses and worked within what he was given, making smart decisions, playing football. Carr has a combination of David Carr training and the Fresno single read offense, not a good mix.

    Alex Smith played a good number of years in the NFL for QB being drafted as a number 1 pick....I think he had a better career than say, David Carr, Tim Couch and Sam Bradford who all went at number 1....

    even with him being draft at number 1 spot....he was never regarded as a bust, he did have a good nfl career...

    22-33 for 311 yards with 1 TD, 1 INT, 18 rush yards, 1 rush TD and numerous big plays to extend drives against the defending champions .. all in his 1st start .. it's obviously too early to draw any conclusions ..but I doubt Raidernation24 is laughing as hard as he was when he created this thread..

    94 rating

    8.5 intended air yards (top half of the league)

    15.2 in aggression (middle of the pack)

    4.6% completion percentage ABOVE expected completion percentage

    Or on Herbert throwing throwing that interception across his body. When he could have walked for the first down on the rollout. Nobody was within 10 yards of him.
