View Full Version : I'm a little sad, but know it's for the best

I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way, but today, I am a little sad.

I remember watching the 02 draft, and being ecstatic, thinking David was the person who was going to take us where we needed to be. I thought he had all the physical tools, the mental ones as well. Plus, I thought he'd be a very good face for our new team.

I think it's best for him to go, but it still doesn't mean I am not disappointed to see him leave, and I still wish he could have carried us.

David is one heck of a young man. He represents everything I try and teach my students to be on a regular basis. I wish him nothing but the best, and I know he will be successful wherever he goes.

Thanks for everything David! I only hope we are respectful to him when he plays in Reliant next time.


WELCOME MATT SCHAUB!

Remember that opening game against Dallas in 2002? After the game, the way Carr had played, and the emotion... I can't lie, as much as I want to move on and give Schaub a shot... I'll miss Carr.

Ditto again... and best of luck wherever he ends up.

I can't agree more with Ash. David came into a situation and never once made the team or the city look bad.

David was the face to this franchise for 5 years and spent most of that on his back. Were there times that David din't play up to the level of the #1 overal pick, yes. But he also left everything on the field.

I'm also alittle sad to this see that day come. I knew it was for the best of this franchise but it is still alittle sad.:cry2:

I wish David good luck and I hope he turns into a pro bowl qb where ever he goes. That being said...

Welcome to Houston Matt Schaub!!

I agree, I always really rooted for David. All the beatings he's taken and the toughness he showed, I really liked that. Plus the Dave-haters were (are) always so mean spirited and classless towards David and his family (beer incident against Cleveland, 3/4 of the thinds said on this board). And I wanted him to shut them up so badly. It is sad he will not be able to make that happen.

Wherever Dave goes, I wish him and his family nothing but the absolute best that life has to offer, and I hope he can make good on all his potential.

I know there have been many negative fans, but I hope Mr. Carr knows that there are many of us who respect him and wish him the very best.

While I am glad the Texans are going in a new direction, I just can't forget him leading us to a 19-10 win over the Cowboys to start off the '02 season. Never before in my life had I been so happy. For the longest time, whenever I thought "Texans", I thought "Carr". I just hope for the best for him if he ends up somewhere else.

I've been a Carr supporter around here but I know it is time to bring in a guy that doesn't have the history Carr has here.

Thanks for the memories David, you are a great guy, awesome competitor and a tough son of a gun. Farewell.

I really hope to see the Texans beat him down in the playoffs in the near future.

I will proudly sport my Carr jersy the entire year next year. One last farewell to a person who represented the Texans and Houston very well. He was never able to completely put it together on the field but he never trashed the organization or any of the players. David as fans we appreciate you helping us get the organization started and we hope to meet you in the Superbowl.
As for the next year my Ryans jersey will be waiting its turn.

Today is a great day to be a Texan. :texflag:

When he is traded it will be interesting to see how he reacts. If he acts as classy as he has bene while here, I salute him. If he takes the opportunity to bash the franchise shame on him. ~shakes finger disapprovingly~

Carr's legacy will be one that the Texans failed him, not that he failed the Texans.

I am of the opinion that it was time for a change for both David and the Texans in order for all to grow. The class he showed by taking the high road and not getting caught up in all the negative publicity he has endured throughout the past couple years make me respect him tremendously as a person. I do hope that he goes to a team and succeeds with a fresh start.

Sadly AJ's longest play ever is 54yards. That will be a thing of the past in 2007. Slow as molasses Keyshawn Johnson has longer receptions.

100 catches? maybe not, but BIG TIME PLAYS, you bet!

I have to say that for 5 solid seasons I stayed with David Carr and supported him. I will be sad to see him go because I knew he tried his hardest. For an expansion team, he did all we could've asked for and more.

I will always remember David for the 1st victory ever - beating Dallas 19-10, the Leap of Faith to beat Jacksonville, heck beating the Jags more than any team, finally beating Indy and leaving us on a two game win streak.

Good luck David, Welcome Matt!!!!

I wish David the best of luck wherever his career from here on out takes him. He's a class act & a good guy. He just wasn't able to cut it as the starting QB for the Texans. Then again not many rookie QBs who were put in his situation would find much success. It was time to change things up & I sincerely believe that both the Texans & David will benefit from the change.

I still fondly remember those days when David was drafted by the Texans. It seemed like the entire city was fascinated and in love with him. And after the Dallas game it seemed like DC and the Texans were headed for greatness. But now 5 years later the situation is much different and looking back I think it was a mistake starting him right off the bat. I was actually for sitting him a year or two and letting guys like Kent Graham play. Anyway, DC's a great guy and he's all class. I wish him the very best.

I'm sad to see this happen as well. I recall with great clarity that leap to beat Jackonsville and the pure joy on his face when he did it. He has it in him and wherever he goes, I hope he finds that every Sunday.

I also remember when we beat the Cowboys that first year. David Carr had carte blanche on the City of Houston. Man how things have changed...

David, you will be missed by this fan for sure. Wish all the Best for you and your family...

How soon people can forget, but oh well...

I just had a thought, what if David read the message boards, and we made him so depressed that he couldn't play well in the games. I personally would burst out crying because it was us, the fans that made our team lose by insulting David. We were so mad at David for making us lose, but it might have been us making the Texans lose. It is a possibility.:cry2:

I dont think David's Net-Nanny software would let him visit this place :)

David is probably a pretty happy guy today to be honest. He made almost 3 million last week and now looks like he is going to be able to test the free agency waters and choose the team he goes to. He would be an upgrade at backup for a few teams for sure. Geez, he could start for Oakland, Minnesota, or Cleveland pretty much with ease. He is probably doing pretty damn good right about now.

So when is Schaub going to take Dom Davis/Williams' place? Let's photoshop something together and make it happen. the cheesier the better.

ditto, the media wanted Vince, so they turned on him and the masses followed. Every NFL guy on TV seems to get it. We never gave Carr a chance and despite his O-line being the biggest joke in NFL history, I remember him getting mad when asked a negative question about them.

I remember the Dallas game, all the games we beat the Jags, his juke move during the Saints game, and the game Vs. the Falcons where he came in with a badly hurt arm and lead us to a victory (ESPN decided to freak out that VIck came off the sidelines and skip Carr coming off the bench as well).

This organization failed him, and half of the typical ***** H-town fans failed to show the same dissapointment at the O-line as they did to Carr.

Im glad he is gone, he can go somewhere and be a success.

Welcome to H-town Schaub, get comfortable on your back, and in 2 years, it will be YOUR FAULT!

I almost cried when I heard the news, and widh him the best of luck wherever he goes. His new team will be who I root for when the Texans aren't on. I am a Texans fan first and foremost though and welcome Matt Schaub with open arms and hope that he can take us to where we need to be as a TEAM.

the guys that get the face time on the big screen and are honored over the PA are right in front of us in section 134. there are anti-carr people everywhere around my section because we are actually ponying up money for the product. It's easy to support a bad QB when you are watching at home and can just turn the TV off when it goes bad. that wasnt directed at you AJ or anyone in particular.

the guys that get the face time on the big screen and are honored over the PA are right in front of us in section 134. there are anti-carr people everywhere around my section because we are actually ponying up money for the product. It's easy to support a bad QB when you are watching at home and can just turn the TV off when it goes bad. that wasnt directed at you AJ or anyone in particular. Actually, I think you were trying to buy my Brown's tickets last year when I was letting them go at rock bottom prices :)

Ok, maybe I was just imagining the Halliburton Heroes in the Section next to mine (in the seats I've occupied for all 50 Texans home games) .... and yeah, I guess you could just turn off the tv while watching from home but I wouldn't know since I'm always at Reliant until 0:00 - except for that one Titans game a few years ago when I got pissed and left early.

Like I said, there's ONE (or should I say 'was' one) highly opinionated anti Carr fan in the upper reaches of 101 that reminded me a bit of your message board persona. Don't blame me. It's just a mental association I happened to make for some reason. The word "bum" was the key, combined with the mention of the Halliburton seats. But I'm guessing the Big H can afford more than a few for their heroes and heroines.

As far as your Browns tix, I often buy extra seats for family and friends that I take to games. You were selling. I was looking. What exactly does that have to do with anything? If you'll recall, I was willing to drive 50 miles to buy your discounted tickets at 10:00 pm the night before the game but you had already sold them.

And as far as ponying up for the NFL product in this city (this isn't directed to you or anyone in particular), I've 'invested' a lot - monetary and otherwise - in Houston's NFL teams since the late 70's - but I usually don't whine about what I spend on tickets. If it gets to the point where I feel like I'm done. I'm done. Kind of like Gump. In the mean time, I'm there god willin' and hoping for the best and expressing my opinion in my own way.

As far as the thread title, I'm not sad Carr is gone - actually quite the opposite.** But I'm frustrated that it's been 14 years since I've seen a winner in this city. And I'm frustrated over the multitude of mistakes this franchise has made, some of which that the owner owned up to today.

** and before some of you start mindlessley tapping the h-a-t- ... sequence, here's what's been hanging just a few feet from me on my home office wall for the last 5 years - it's the Chronicle Sports front page from September 9, 2002 framed with my two "Inaugural Game" tickets. That display's not going anywhere because that was in my top three of special NFL moments to witness.

Yeah, I know. Of all of the criticism, complaints, and whining regarding David Carr, that line of 'reasoning' has been hands down the most asinine.

I'm not stating that being a nice guy is one of the reasons I'm glad he's going. When I said nice guys finished last, I meant his bad luck he had w/ us.

He might be a great citizen, but that doesn't win you football games.

i couldnt disagree more. it feels like a big albatross is off our neck. i have been waiting for a real QB for 5 years.....hopefully the wait is over

We all know. You say it in every ding dang Carr thread ever made. You can quit saying it now. It's true, he will be leaving us soon. Maybe not soon enough for you, but too soon for some of us.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way, but today, I am a little sad.

I remember watching the 02 draft, and being ecstatic, thinking David was the person who was going to take us where we needed to be. I thought he had all the physical tools, the mental ones as well. Plus, I thought he'd be a very good face for our new team.

I think it's best for him to go, but it still doesn't mean I am not disappointed to see him leave, and I still wish he could have carried us.

David is one heck of a young man. He represents everything I try and teach my students to be on a regular basis. I wish him nothing but the best, and I know he will be successful wherever he goes.

Thanks for everything David! I only hope we are respectful to him when he plays in Reliant next time.

You absolutely stole my thunder. I came here to post the question, "Will you miss David?" I meant this in a nostalgic sense, thinking of the excitement that was the beginning of the Texans franchise.

However, you said it perfectly, so that's why I quoted you again. David Carr is a classy guy, and I will miss him as part of our team. Like him or not, he is a part of this team's unchangeable history, and he was a source of excitement for everyone, at one time or another.

Thanks David.

I think Carr will be good if he gets to the right team. I would like to see the Carolina Panthers give him a chance.

That reminded me of the call I'm going to make to SportsRadio610 someday.

"Hi guys ... first time caller, long time listener ... the previous caller stole my thunder ... I'll hang up and listen."

Great banner! Is it just me, or does anyone else think DeMeco is due a trip to the barber?

I am 100% for putting this banner up....at least for one day.
