Even my wife sees the difference between Alex and Nate.
Great synopsis of both players Shaj! I see Nate as exactly how you called him "instinctual"...so what if the play breaks down? He will find an open receiver and get him the ball like Raye said and you just can't teach that. I am excited to see what this kid can do against better talent. If he does do well, Carr may just be bumped to third string.
Carr was always a band-aid, IMO. Even Jimmy said earlier in the off-season that he'd hope Nate would push Carr for the 2nd spot. He getting better in practice and Raye wants to see it translated in the game. Both years now, Nate has shown that "uncanny" ability to see down field and make plays, but he's done it against scrubs.
Now he has his opportunity! Opportunity is always the catalyst. Hopefully, he makes the most of it. If he does well, things will get really exciting around here.
My wife is all excited as she bought his jersey last year after he saw him play in the preseason and will be wearing it proudly on Sunday!
Love a woman with innate psychic abilities and a flare for thinking outside the box.
