In his first year in Dallas, cornerback Brandon Carr admits that, much like Tony Romo, he tried to do too much out on the field last season. “I got caught up in trying to save the world, so to speak,” Carr said on 1310 The Ticket’s “BaD Radio” show, via John Machota of The Dallas Morning News. “Trying to play every position. Trying to go outside of my skill set to go out there and make plays, and trying to force things." “When you force things, only bad things happen from that. I learned a hard lesson during the middle of the season. I had a rough patch and I tell everybody about it. I was able to give myself a reality check in the mirror and just get back to playing my football, get back to basics and fundamentals.” Carr will start his second season with the team with a second defensive coordinator, Monte Kiffin, who he got a chance to meet face-to-face with last week, and their will be some fundamental differences in the way Kiffin will go about the things than his previous DC Rob Ryan, mainly more zone coverage. “In years past you could go up and challenge the guys and be aggressive and beat them up all the way down the field,” Carr said. “But now the game has changed so much that if you even look at them sometimes, they’re throwing the flag.”
