I'm not denying he got burnt and I'm not sitting here calling him Deion. But I don't believe he got burnt anymore than Carr has thus far (remember, the season isn't even over and he's getting toasted on an almost bi-weekly basis).
What he did was pick off passes. He made plays. Plays that changed the momentum of games.
That's what this team really needs. Carr can get burnt all he wants, just give me some damn interceptions. Look at who New England has in their secondary. A bunch of mediocre players and those guys give up plenty in the passing game, but you know what -- they also get interceptions. They give their offense the ball in position to score and that helps the Patriots win. Same thing when the Saints won the Superbowl. Their D was pretty porous but they always seemed to come up with big turnovers from the secondary.
That's what we don't have. An an ideal world, these guys would be shutting everyone down like they're getting paid to do. But if you're gonna give up plays week after week, at least give me some interceptions to offset that. Anthony Henry did that. Nobody on this current Cowboys roster does.
