The intent here is not to be tongue in cheek, but to actually share your favorite play, sequence, quote, etc. about the first draft pick in our franchise history.

Mine was this year. It was a play that showed that Kubiak's luster rubbing off on Carr, executed to perfection with confidence and it was extremely timely as it put us in the lead. It was a play that gave me hope for the future.

Carr's bootleg against the Dolphins
3-1-MIA1 (15:00) D.Carr left end for 1 yard, TOUCHDOWN.
K.Brown extra point is GOOD, Center-B.Pittman, Holder-C.Stanley.

The guy is in a tough place, like many of us have been in our professions, and he is one of our guys. Lets get some good karma going. :texflag:

My favorite:

David's pass to Derek Armstrong against the Kansas City Chiefs in 2004 that got us into field position for Kris Brown's 49 yard game winning field goal:

2-15-HOU35 (1:04) D.Carr pass to D.Armstrong to KC 30 for 35 yards (G.Wesley).

How about when he rushed for the only touchdown againt the Bills in the home opener. We had no offense, but he wasn't going to be denied.

Or how about the game comeback against the Vikings. Those passes up to AJ were great

His first TD pass.

I have been to a lot football games, including both UT Rose Bowl vicotries, and I rank that game as absolutely amazing. The feeling at Reliant was really cool.

I never thought he would throw a TD so quickly in career.

That was a great game.

I'm torn between:

Goal line dive over Stroud and Henderson when we could have kicked a field goal for OT

or

The sunday night Packers game where AJ just missed getting a TD and ran up to Carr saying he got in. Carr responded "Don't worry about it, we'll score right here"(or similar) and then throws a TD pass on the next play.

I just wish he were that confident all the time.

I have a hard time picking a fave.

My fave from this year is this play. It demonstrates his athleticism, and what can happen when the other team has to start respecting your running game. When the Texans can run, you can do more of the play action.

In most of the JAX game, they couldn't do the play action stuff because we weren't running well. In the 4th quarter it became the Lundy show and then you can run the Denver stuff that makes their offense work.

Carr to Daniels, 4th quarter Texans-JAX. Daniels was so freaking wide open because JAX had to respect both the run and AJ:

Houston Texans at 11:19
1-10-JAC26 (11:19) D.Carr pass short left to A.Johnson to JAX 22 for 4 yards (G.Sensabaugh).
2-6-JAC22 (10:54) W.Lundy up the middle to JAX 14 for 8 yards (T.McDaniel).
1-10-JAC14 (10:02) D.Carr pass short left to O.Daniels for 14 yards, TOUCHDOWN.
K.Brown extra point is GOOD, Center-B.Pittman, Holder-C.Stanley.
JAC 7 HOU 24, Plays: 3 Yards: 26 Possession: 1:22.

That was not an easy throw--rollout to the left, defenders coming right atcha.

I liked it so much, I made Daniel's celebration picture (http://afc-south.aolsportsblog.com/2006/10/22/houston-texans-win-with-style-points/)a big one on the FanHouse blog.

I also was sitting behind the Texans bench for that half, and I was happier seeing the players happy than I was for myself.

The 4th quarter of that game shows what is possible for the Texans as far as what can happen when you run the ball, play actioning, playing dominating D from a position of being ahead. I really see that quarter being the future of the team once we get a few more pieces and parts in place.

I also believe that it is plays like that one that show what Kubiak sees in Carr.

you guys amaze me, its unbelievable on how big of a man crush some people have for DC(not pointing fingers). days after the great DC loses a game for us becuase he throws and interception into quadruple coverage, and loses two fumbles this board can't help but think about their favorite david carr play. i remember seeing post and threads on people bashing others for the man crushes on VY and RB, but those are not nearly as bad for say the 50% of the board that has a man crush on carr. i am so tired of the excuses every week on how everything carr does wrong is not his fault, rather its the fault of his oline or recievers etc. now i will recognize the fact that the o line is hit or miss on most plays and salaam, weigert, and mckinney should be release now, but explain to me why sage was not sacked once. Finally we have a coach that is holding him accoutable. i will give credit where credit is due, DC has had some bright spots this year, but he is hit or miss. through his career he has fumbled the ball a whopping 60 times and fumbled for loss 19. this is unexceptable, and i have come to the conclusion that DC will never be more than an avg. to medicore qb, but i am hoping i am wrong. before you call me a fair weather fan and all that stuff.. i want to you know i watch everygame every week and it absolutly ruins my day when we have games like we did last sunday. i can't tell you how many times i wanted to punch a hole in the wall last sunday. sorry to ruin this thread

Favorite Carr moment was when we played the Falcons and he came in with a WOUNDED arm, could not throw the ball 5 yards. Vick also was injured and came in but got stuffed by Sharper giving the texans a chance to win the game.

Carr came in, and looked like VICK and ran the ball about 20 yards and took a SHOT and he almost went out. He showed LEADERSHIP and HEART running that ball and setting up the winning Field Goal.

10-31-2006, 09:50 PM
2002 - DC's pass to Billy Miller to score vs. the Cowboys. also his laser pass to Jermain Lewis down the middle of the field that was dropped. Those two passes showed me he had what it took to be the QB of our team. Arm strength, accuracy, and willingness to go for the big play.

2003 - DC came into the game vs. the Falcons with a bad wing and scrambled for a first down and willed our team to victory. Toughness and leadership.

2004 - the game vs. the Vikings; he kept slinging it, refusing to let the team die. Unfortunately, the defense didn't hold. Never giving up.

2004 - going on the road vs. Chicago, he played a heck of a game in single-digit temps. The ability to go on the road and play in a hostile environment and pull out a win.

2005 - the game vs. the Cardinals (or was it the Rams, or both?) where he called his own plays for a half and the team responded well, scored points, and then the OC screwed up and took control back. The ability to command a huddle and the smarts to call his own plays in the NFL.

2006 - the opening drive vs. the Eagles, he led the offense in a near flawless drive, showing me he can be a good QB in this system. Also, the game vs. Jacksonville.

Also, the game vs. Jacksonville where he dived over for the winning score. Talking the coach into going for it there and delivering. never giving up and getting the job done when it counted.

These are all times that DC has shown to me he has what it takes to be a very good QB in this league. Unfortunately, most of these traits I've highlighted have not shown up with regularity. When he was a young QB, he seemed like he could take the mantle. I really think the sacks have beaten that out of him. I am hopeful that Kubiak can bring back the good parts of Carr that we have seen sporadically over his career, before it's too late.

carr's pass to aj in the tenn. game, 2002 or 2003. it was the game we lost in the last seconds. it was with about 2 min left carr was under pressure and completed a pass to aj that aj made into a huge gain. dd scored on the next play and we took the lead with a little over a min left. carr said after the game he was under so much pressure he didnt even see johnson he just threw to a spot.

that game also had my favorite texan play in it. the play were marlon mcree intercepted a pass from mcnair and ran it back 90 yards for a td. i was at the game with my friend and he ran right past us for the score. to bad mcree wasnt good enough for us to try and keep.:rolleyes:

by the way. nice thread.

you guys amaze me, its unbelievable on how big of a man crush some people have for DC(not pointing fingers).

Uh KT, is the last person to be accused of a mancrush. What is wrong with trying to karmically get the ball rolling with what Kubiak is trying to do?

Look at this list (http://www.nfl.com/stats/playersort/NFL/QB-PASSING/2006/regular?&_1:col_1=15&_1:col_2=4). Check out the number of attempts and the rating. Look at all the names on the list and who is high and low. Yeah, Carr has a hard time holding onto the ball, but imagine what could happen if Kubiak could coach that fumblitis out of him. I don't know how likely that is, but he's coached more QBs than me. If you want to accuse me of having a Carr crushage, uh, this is what I wrote about the benching (http://texans.aolsportsblog.com/2006/10/30/david-carr-to-start-against-giants/).

Anyway, there are plenty of other threads to express your unhappiness with the QB situation. Is it so bad to have just one thread on the entirety of the MB to celebrate the good stuff?

10-31-2006, 10:11 PM
my favorite play wasn't even one that counted for anything...because it was a missed catch. coming up on the end of the first half, carr's first professional start against the cowboys...texans were on the 50, carr drops back, and throws one of the prettiest balls i've ever seen. it was sailing towards jermaine lewis, and went right between his hands...i just thought that it went right between his arms was awesome. no one was even near him. he had a step on everyone. struck me as wow.

10-31-2006, 10:31 PM
So let me get this straight- Carr has been sacked officially 200 plus times in his career and has fumbled 60 times during that period. That tells me the other 140 times he was sacked, which does not include the times he ran the ball either, he held on to the ball. I don't care who you are but if I had Tom Brady and he got sacked that many times in 5 years, I would bet he would have a few more fumbles too. Just my observation. Carr has been beat on physically and held back for 4 years and now he is given some freedom and has shown some improvement but no one sees that. It is a shame that his first years were wasted and he can't go back and redo those years. Now he has the opportunity to actually do something with proper coaching. I do wish the Texans would trade him to Dallas or some other team that Texan fans hate and watch him light us up for years. Every team in Houston releases someone who the fans think is a bum and then they end up being superstar on some other team. It seems that the fans on this message board play fantasy football too much and expect things immediately. In the real world it doesn't happen that way and those of us who actually live in the real world deal with that everyday. It is amazing that the people who attack the team and have no patience for them to improve, would really hate it or have a extremely hard time dealing with the same expectations in their own lives.

Good, try to stick to topic. Ifyou want to be negative, go somewhere else.

when he was on the bench and the Tony Banks Texans beat the Super Bowl bound Panthers, took the Super Bowl bound Pats to OT, beat the Bills and Falcons. That was the best football we have ever played as a team in a 3-4 week stretch. Banks sucks...but he didn't settle for only underneath passes and he managed to complete more than 4 yard laser hitch passes in enough key moments to keep the team alive enough to win a game.

It's not a moment, per say, but his game against Jacksonville a couple of weeks ago. He played a good game, rose to the occasion, and the rest of the team did the same. We actually dominated a good team this season, and his two TD drives after the 3rd qtr. Jax fumble was nice to see.

Hopefully it's not a performance to frame on a wall, but just a sign of things to come.

The first was one of the classic QB moments of all time, as Carr throws into quadruple coverage for an easy pick.

The second came with 8 seconds in the half, when Carr was sacked while not taking care of the ball, and the Titans ran it in for the score.

Two of the biggest bone headed plays of all time by any experienced starting NFL QB. Why are these my favorites?

Because that is the beginning of the end of David Carr in Houston. It also became my epiphany moment. I had a sudden realization while I was watching the Titans run it back in for the easy TD to end the half. Carr will never win a damn thing leading this team. The clock is ticking, and soon enough we will have a real QB leading the charge.

I don't come in trying to cause trouble, I come for some good football debate. I "waste my days" on both boards (and more).

David Carr came from here at Fresno State and I have followed him since college. Too bad he joined a team in our division, or I could cheer for him.

I witnessed a couple of long QB tenures here. Pastorini started off a lot like Carr - booing, frustration,etc. -- people felt the same way about him at first as many do Carr, but after three seasons Dante got a coach named Sid Gilman who turned him and the offense around. Moon had the same issues for 3 seasons until June Jones came in and changed the offense. Gilman and Jones effects were felt immediately in QB performance, production, and in the win column.

Play better and win. Simply stated, that's what has to happen otherwise people won't be satisfied. When Giff Neilsen, Oliver Luck and Chris Chandler were our QBs, people weren't satisfied either, for good reason. It's the nature of the beast.

I was in the front row next to the bullpen. It was amazingly loud. It was so loud that you could yell at the top of your lungs and not hear yourself. I broke my second whip, I mean, cheer stick in the third quarter of that game slamming it against the padding in front of the seats making noise.

I lost my voice for a couple days after that. It was a bummer that we dint win that one.

Well KT, it was a valiant effort, but even the mods can't refrain from turning a positive thread into a negative with trollish postings. I commend you for the effort, however.

Great observation. I thought I was the only one who noticed it.

Ah, high school.


The homecoming king and queen, David Carr and Christine Fell, showed their support by maintaining their cheerfulness throughout the evening.


What troopers!

I witnessed a couple of long QB tenures here. Pastorini started off a lot like Carr - booing, frustration,etc. -- people felt the same way about him at first as many do Carr, but after three seasons Dante got a coach named Sid Gilman who turned him and the offense around. Moon had the same issues for 3 seasons until June Jones came in and changed the offense. Gilman and Jones effects were felt immediately in QB performance, production, and in the win column. .


There's a lot of difference between 3 seasons and 5 seasons.


PS. My favorite Carr moment is the moment he leaves town.

Mine was when he got taken out of the Titans games.

I fail to see what people see in this less than mediocre quarterback...

I fail to see how you can't see the talent. But there really is no middle ground on this debate, so, on we go.....

Play better and win. Simply stated, that's what has to happen otherwise people won't be satisfied. When Giff Neilsen, Oliver Luck and Chris Chandler were our QBs, people weren't satisfied either, for good reason. It's the nature of the beast.

I remember Pastorini and it took a while. While he overcame some things he still never came close to "great". Moon had a rough couple of seasons but really came together. I definitely put Warren in my "greats" category. If you're right on the times Dan was 3 seasons, Warren 3. We're in our fifth with Carr and I'm still not seeing anything. Maybe I'm blind...

I see a spark here and there. What I don't see is consistency. My biggest problem is he is not a leader. I think this was clearly evident in his pouting last week after being pulled. I would LOVE to be proven wrong and I wait, hopefully, game after game after game for you guys to be right.

Don't get yourself worked up. Nighthawk is just another troll that does a few drive bye's every now and again. Nighthawk is a big time VY lover. Probably has a pic of VY in his wallet.

I know I already posted my favorite DC moment but I'm changing it and I don't care. When DC jumped from the two or three yard line into the endzone yesterday against the Giants and got it, I was pumped!! I haven't jumped up and yelled like that in a long time.

Preachers from Colorado!!! Hillarious!!

I posted mine and while that play yesterday is up there on my list, the top on my list is still his first completion as a pro - the 19 yard TD pass to Billy Miller for a TD against the Cowgurls!!!

I gotta agree that was a great moment. I think the only thing that made me feel better about this team is the way everyone came together in the end zone after the touchdown. Penalty or not.

Losing stinks - but they played hard yesterday, and that gave me some indications they are at least in this together. I wondered.

My favorite DC moment will be when he leads the Texans to win more than 3 out of 5 games.

I really liked the over the top dive into the endzone though.
