Why The NFL Needs a Farm System

Article By on 21st July, 2009

... the top of the article again. Did you get a good look? Good, because David Carr is a prime example of why the NFL would benefit from a farm system like the ones Major League Baseball and the NHL already have. 

Carr was the first overall pick in the 2002 draft by the expansion Houston Texans and would go on to set an NFL record for being sacked 76 times in a single season. 

Carr was a young guy with a horrible offensive line and was thrown into the starting job for a new team with a new stadium whose only real goal that season was to sell tickets. Thus he was never given a chance to learn how to be an NFL quarterback.
