If You Still Thought Corp Had a Chance


Bumped...I don't think there is any doubt now...P

This quote, from the OC Register blog, throws cold water on that idea:

He struggled with anything down field,” Carroll said of Corp, who completed 13 of 22 passes for 110 yards with one interception. “We were very fortunate that we didn’t throw three or four more picks. There were three or four more (interceptions) there for (Washington to take).

I can't remember PC ever throwing a QB under the bus so quickly and aggressively.  Ever.  He backed Carson Palmer in 2001 when fans were booing him, and he vehemently defended JDB through broken fingers and game-killing interceptions.  I can't remember PC ever being so critical of a single performance from a QB.

While Carroll's just saying what a lot of people have been writing (that Corp's lucky to have thrown just one pick), I'm not sure what, if anything, Pete is trying to accomplish.  Pete is usually Mr. Positive Spin.  Is he sending message that if Corp wants to see meaningful playing time, he should transfer.  Is he trying to light a fire under Corp?  Since Corp is allegedly so sensitive that the failure to name him the starter earlier in the week is considered a factor in his dismal performance, I'm not sure what's going on. He sure ain't confidence building.

Which also begs the question: If the coaches have little confidence in Corp, then why not give Mustain a shot?
