View Full Version : Assuming Carr is done in Houston who is the upgrade?

I keep here echoes of "anyone but Carr!". Let's just say for a moment that Carr is finished in Houston, and we don't even get a seventh rounder for him. He is simply fired.

So whom do you put in his place? Whom is a true long term upgrade? If he isn't a long term upgrade, then what is the game plan for the long term?

I'd like some answers other than "get rid of Carr." That is only half of the issue the other half is trying to upgrade the position. Remember the job of a GM is to upgrade the position, not to just fire players.

Keep in mind too that if you put in an average vet like Sage or Jake then we could go 8-8, 9-7, 7-9, or so, stopping us from drafting a stud first round QB like VY or Lineirt

What I'm getting at is I want to read realistic solutions to our QB problem.

The solution is easy...

Play Sage until we draft a QB that Kubes can groom....

I don't understand your line of thinking...

I'll say it again:

If your girlfriend cheats on you are you going to stay with her because you're scared you can't find anyone better ?

Or are you gonna jump into the ocean and go fishing ?

You don't stick with someone that isn't treating you right because you think that you can't do better....If you know what you have isn't good, you have to explore and fish around until you find what you're looking for....Otherwise you'll be stuck with that trash forever because you will never know whats out there...

are you trying to get the first overall in 08... or do you actually think Sage can get it done. You know there is a reason he is a career backup. Not saying Carr is the awnser but Sage certainly is not.

i can somewhat buy that argument considering how he was behind gus ferrotte on the depth chart last yr at miami. however, u are what you show on the field, and sage has shown himself to be a very capable QB, especially if kubiak involved him in the gameplanning process late in the season. he played a significant amount of time in only one game. we saw quite a bit, but that was when tennessee's defense couldnt stop anybody. they got better as the season progressed, but still. i would like to see more from sage besides what he did vs a crappy defense at the time and in the preseason. a great majority of this team is "extremely young". i think we need to draft a QB with our second pick and do what the colts did with manning, throw him out there right away and let him grow with the rest of the team.

When Sage comes in, passes get completed for 20+ yards. The ball moves down the field.

That in itself is reason to start him.

That's assuming that the Texans are so far behind that the other team (titans) go into their prevent defense? Let's face it, your example comes from a game that wasn't as close as the 28-22 final would suggest. I will say this again. Sage had the opportunity to win the starting QB position in Miami and couldn't do it. Some people are starting pitchers and some are releif pitchers. Sage would be the equivalent of the upper eschelon of releif pitchers (i.e. Trevor Hoffman).

Just listening to the way Kubiak talks about Sage, I'd be fine with seeiing him Start.... as a matter of fact, if I Kubiak came out today, and said he would start Sage in '07 I bet most fans would be thrilled and excited about it. & Until Miami produces a starting QB, I'm going to believe they didn't know what the heck they had all along.

Tom Brady made good on his first NFL starting oppurtunity.....Sage has had more than one and done almost nothing ( I say almost because he did play well against the Titans this year)

Maques Colston is again another guy who has made good(Proved he belongs) on his first chance not after years of doing nothing. But why are we talking about a reciever in this conversation.

Tony Romo is actually a pretty good argument because he was in a situation like Sage is now. But for every Tony Romo there are a hundred guys who bombed.

Totally agree. I think Sage has promise...and in terms of future picks...it's not always the 1st pick in the draft that proves stellar over the long haul.

No argument about him doing what he was told to do, I just said that it was a bad example of ""moving the ball down the field".... But, 1/2 of a game that was out of hand and 1 quarter of protecting a lead, sounds a lot like a releif pitcher to me. I have nothing against Sage, he is a quality guy and a solid back-up. I am glad we have him. I have no problems with starting him next year under the premise that he will be the one taking a beating while we re-tool our O-line and groom someone else to take over the reigns eventually.

BUT, he is not the one to take this team to the promised land.

You are right in that on most teams he would'nt have to be Tom Brady he could be like Trent Dilfer(Game Manager) on the Ravens a few years back. Unfortunately for us Texans fans we are NOT the Ravens of a few years back on this team he would have to be Tom Brady for us to have a solid year. Having said that I guess he really could'nt do much worse than Carr because we did end up with the worst record in the league last year but I dont think Sage is the awnser.

But how do you explain the line all of a sudden looking better ? were the DE's not coming as hard ? Were the DT's tired ? Whats the exscuse?

Seeing that they pretty much knew the Texans had to pass, you'd think they'd just be teeing off trying to get sacks...In fact you might say that the DE's were rushing harder when Sage was in the game because they knew the Texans would have to pass to come back...

But putting all that aside....

Having lived through one particular game with a final of 41-38 in OT (without mentioning specifics), you know how that stuff works. Defense plays loose, gives up a TD....(offense feels okay about themselves) Ooooops gives up a second TD...just as you are describing . What happened in that game was that the O got on such a roll, and the D stayed in the prevent too long.

I wonder at what point the Oiler errrrr Titan coaches reminded their D of that particular game.... In other words, when the D decided that it was getting too close for comfort, they went back to their regular D and won the game. Had they never gone into the "Prevent" (you from winning) Defense, the game would have never been that close. I beleive they would have pressured Sage just as much.. Now, how would have Sage handled it, is a completely different discussion.

For those that think Sage's performance in that one game was enough to win a starting QB position, I will remind them of this.. and that is, the 41-38 OT game that was won by a 3rd string QB... Given that performance he earned a starting QB position (at least somewhere) - right???.. What happened to Frank Reich??

i think our defensive backfield is the main problem, the texans wernt able to stop the deep threat; besides that john kitna was able to set a record on them for completions. i just think our defense is out on the field to much and the offense could use some more opportunities. also if the texans can run the ball consistently thoughout the season that would be pretty sweet.:marionaner:

You can look at it from many angles, of course. The straight-ahead look at our situation is this: David Carr has had five years to try to realize his potential. He has not.

His circumstances haven't always been ideal, but it's a proven matter he is incapable of rising above the challenges he faces here. My gut instinct is that this is no revelation to coach K nor the rest of the FO.

Sorry. An edit of my comment before posting ended up making it somewhat hard to follow.

I think Bob's inability to let go of the dream he had for DC is a component of what's holding us back. He may have held on too long. Now we're looking at the very real possibility of starting Sage (or someone like him) while grooming someone else, and I think a fair amount of people feel we're a little late in getting to that point. Starting DC for another year while trying to groom the next guy is not going to sit well with a lot of fans. Essentially, we're staring a "rebuilding year" in the face, when most people feel we've never accomplished building anything in the first place. Having a Bledsoe/'06 Saints situation develop in Houston '07 is rather unlikely.

A bit of a pickle we're in.

I wonder why Kubiak started David Carr in every game including back to back games where Carr struggled? Include Capers into that scenario as well as he never benched Carr.

the secret answer is: o-line

Lucky
01-05-2007, 06:02 PM
The solution is easy...

Play Sage until we draft a QB that Kubes can groom....
Even if Kubiak believed that, do you think he could sell that to McNair? Could McNair sell that to the fans? No, someone has to be brought in. Someone with some name recognition to your average Texan fan.

I'm an average Texans fan..... I don't need anyone with name recognition. I like the idea of starting Sage...

But I wouldn't get rid of David.... I'd start Sage until I can prove/disprove how good/bad our line really is. If we ever get to a point where we can say, "look our Oline isn't any worse than the avg teams OL.... we should be able to expect an avg QB to produce behind that line." then throw David in there, and see what he's got..... if he can't get'r done then..... it's time to go..... only problem is that he'll lose whatever value he may have now.

Listen Fellas I dont think you will find anyone in Houston that will tell you that they believe Sage is "The Answer." If Sage is our starting QB next year, that would be great, but it's not like he is really the one who is going to lead us to a Super Bowl. Bottom line is that we need to draft a Quarterback if we are indeed going to go with Sage next year. First round? Not necessarily. We just need to have someone to groom behind Sage. Troy Smith and Kevin Kolb seem like real good candidates that wouldnt have to be drafted in the First Round.

Everyone needs to take a deep breath.

There are several angles to the QB situation here in Houston.

1. Salary cap: If you get rid of Carr, there is a lot of money that has to be eaten for salary cap reasons. Any trade that is made regarding Carr will have to be structured to provide some relief in this area.

2. O-line: There are some posts in this thread regarding upgrading the line to make Carr better. Not buying it. The line was pretty good until we lost 2 starters in 1 game. Ouch! That hurts. Seems to me like Houston needs to some depth on the line not upgrades. Bottom line is Carr holds on to the ball too long.

3. QB poor draft: Face it folks. The draft this year is not exactly loaded with quality QBs.

4. Is Sage the answer?: Maybe. Maybe not. I do think he will get more of a look in the off-season.

5. Kube/Carr confidence: The reason Kube came right out and stated Carr was is starter, is because he knew how horrible the previous regime was in QB development. He wanted to show DC he had confidence in him to make him more comfortable. However, I think this honeymoon is over now.

Bottom Line: Barring some blockbuster trade that provides salary cap relief, I think you will see DC still wearing #8 next year. However, I do think his job as a starter is in serious jeopardy. I think Rosenfels will be given a serious evaluation in the off season and he could possibly be given the nod.

Long term: Don't expect Houston to draft another QB this year unless a Troy Smith somehow falls into their lap. It will probably be better to wait until the 08 draft when the QB prospects will be much better.

I'm no Mel Kiper Jr. This is just how a fan who was willing to give Carr a chance sees it despite all the cries from the VY whiners.

About point 1. Salary Cap. Keeping a player or making him the starter just because he has a high salary is never a good idea.
About point 5. Chris Palmer is widely respected in the NFL as a developer of QB's and in fact is still a QB coach. He just didn't have much to work with.
