And yet Carr thinks he was the happiest player on his team after last Sunday's 27-13 win over the Rams.

"To tell you the truth, we wouldn't have won in that situation," Carr said Wednesday of the Texans. "I don't know a lot of teams that would have won in the situation, to go up and beat a good team like St. Louis in their home opener.

"This is what I signed up for - to be on a football team like this and hopefully somewhere down the line get a chance to play."

(sigh)

He's right. The Texans with Carr at QB probably would've lost a game like that. Good thing for us he's a backup in Carolina.

"It was a situation that got so big with the draft and everything that happened in the last 15 months, I was happy to get out of there, to tell you the truth," Carr said. "You're disappointed, but you have to move on. I'm on a good football team now and I'm happy where I'm at. I'm enjoying what I'm doing and enjoying football again."

Even though he's not playing.

What I hear in this quote is that he is happy to give up his starting QB job to be a back up for Jake Delhomme .

I guess he's admitting that he couldn't stand the heat so he had to get out of the kitchen. I have to give it to him for fessing up that his heart and head weren't in the game, but looking back and reading this, good riddance.

he said some other stuff that was just as bad. i am going to look for it and post it in this thread. i saw him say it on ABC13 last night in an interview at his locker room. i am sure kubes will use it to motivate the team and especially Mario.

And a chance to be even a bigger help this week. Carr knows the ins and outs of the Texans under Kubiak better than anyone. In a league where teams go to great to get an edge on an opponent - see the New England spying case - Carr could have a lot to offer the Panthers' coaching staff.

"If they ask the right question, I'll give them the right answer," Carr said. "I've got a lot of knowledge. But Gary is going to tweak it a little bit. He understands where I'm at right now and he knows what I know."

Watch out, Carr might give up both pages of his playbook from the Texans. :winky:

David Carr is a friggin jackass that needs some sense knocked into him. I hope he gets on the field and we take his arse out, however, his patent Fresno Flop will certainly protect him from injury and mussing up his hair.

"To tell you the truth, we wouldn't have won in that situation," Carr said Wednesday of the Texans.

Well of course he is happy - who wouldn't be? Relatively big bucks to look pretty, carry a clipboard, and no responsibility whatsoever? I'd take that job in a heartbeat. Hayull, he doesn't even have to get his hair messed up with those pesky helmets.

As to "being happy to get out of there," ...for sure he wasn't the only one celebrating.:splits: David just forgot to add that part.

yup. that was the quote I saw on ABC last night. basically he is whining about the draft and the fact that the Texans picked up his option making him a little less than 20 million in the process. Oh life is so hard Davey....how did you manage? Then he talks about how he is happy to be out of there and with a good football team now. He doesnt hold himself accountable whatsoever and if he wants to look at the last 15 months, why doesnt he look at the previous 48 or the fact that he was largely to blame because of his lack of dedication, lack of work ethic, lack of leadership, lack of being a good teammate, and lack of basic rudimentary football skils. KHANNNN!!!!

that quote basically says 'we screwed up drafting Mario then everyone wanted VY or Bush and it hurt my feelings so it wasnt my fault. Now I can still collect money, not work hard, and nobody is on my case because I don't even play football anymore.'

what a pile of dogcrap this guy is. please for the love of God let him get on the field Sunday. I want to see this guy get his ass whooped once and for all....nothing would make me happier than see his candy ass get knocked out for the season or get waived after showing total ineptitude.....all he needs is a chance and he will show how pathetic he is at QB and what a big pussycat he is. anyone who believed in this pile of feces should now finally be able to come to terms with just how pathetic he is.

"It will be different but I've worn these colours now and I'm kind of used to the Panthers," Carr said. "I kind of like what we did last week and I'm pumped up."

I like it when the back up QB is "pumped up".

I'm glad he's "kind of used to the Panthers" now, being they give him a paycheck and all.

And he "kind of like what we did last week". It seems so black and white, you like it or you don't. But somewhere in the middle - in the 'kind of like' section of life - we find David.

agreed....thankfully the mental midget is just giving us LOADS of bulletin board material and finally letting the 2 or 3 remaining Carr apologists know that Carr doesnt care about anything or anyone but himself. He doesnt care about the Texans, the fans that stood by him, the Panthers, or football for that matter.

His job is even sweeter than you say as he was not even doing that last week. He was just sitting all by his lonesome on the bench talking to no one. I think he sits on the bench by himself so he can see if Terry Tate office linebacker is coming in for a hit so he will be able to do a quick "drop and Tuck" move.:splits:

yup he doesnt carry clipboard, doesnt signal calls into Jake, and doesnt stand with the offensive coaching staff. my friend from STL was at the game and has heard me ***** about Carr for years so he took a special interest in seeing what he was up to. He said Carr talked to no one the whole first half except one teammate and a trainer. He got up when Pace was taken off the field and that was about it. My friend said he didn't celebrate any of the big plays like the rest of the teammates and backups and that he pretty much sat on the bench alone by the Gatorade cooler.

basically just a bad teammate, not 'one of the guys', and its all about David for David.

He's not really lying about anything.

With him starting at QB against Carolina here, we probably would've lost. You remember the 1 time we played Carolina & won, he didn't start, Banks did & he came in off the bench when banks went down.

He probably was ready to get out of here, As i'm sure many fans were ready for him to leave as well....

He is in a good situation where the pressure isn't on him anymore like it was here.

I don't see how the texans can ganer bulletin board material from that.....:shrug:

well he blamed the draft on making it hard on him. this implicates Kubes, Mario, McNair, and the whole organization. he is blaming his failures on everything else but himself. typical Carr.

well he said it was nice to be on a good football team....which means he is saying that the Texans AREN'T a good football team. You just don't say that and its not the first time he has said that.

well he said that the Texans wouldn't have won against the Rams, a victory he had nothing to do with.

whether you feel the statements are true or not, they are blatant bulletin board material. I guarantee you the veterans on this team that have gone to war behind him and supported him during his miserable tenure as Texans QB feel a little slighted and a little pee-ohed.

carr should have said 'i enjoyed my time at Houston. Things got tough towards the end and I feel I lost some faith of the fans and the organization. I tried hard and tried to battle through adversity but at the end of the day, we didn't get the job done. I have to take some responsiblity for that and I wish the Texans the best, except this Sunday of course *devilish smile*. I am now in a new situtation that is a big change and there is a different culture here. I am very happy to be here. This organization has already built a culture of winning and anything less is unacceptable. I am enjoying my new situation and trying to do what I can to help this team win, whether that is as backup or as future starter.'

that would have been the PROFESSIONAL thing to say, but we all know its not about being professional. its all about David for David. i hope the candy arse loser gets on the field Sunday, because I would love for him to get steamrolled.

Not saying that you COULDN"T use that stuff as bulletin board material, but come on, He did say {"we" wouldn't have won...."} which includes himself & Capers & Casserly are ripped just as much on here for the moves they made & didn't make for the team- which also included him at the time. the organization somewhat failed him as well.

Don't know if anyone caught Marc and Andre talking about his comments this morning.... But Andre was way down on Carr, saying things like, "Being happy about your situation - as a back-up" speaks volumes about your competiveness.... Andre ragged on him pretty hard (well by Andre standards - anyway).

valid opinion, but I just think the organization did everything they could to help make him look good. he just didnt get the job done. I think Carr failed the Texans more than the Texans failed Carr....but just my opinion of course.

schaub comes in with basically same OL, slightly improved RB corps, and a less proven WR corps and looks a hell of a lot better and in command.

I am glad Carr said what he did. He gave us some fuel for the fire and any good coach will capitalize on this and milk it for whatever he can. sometimes a young team (were youngest team in NFL) can use a little extra motivation and this can only help.

-I wanted to leave because things were rough
-I'm happy being a back-up
-Not taking any blame for his poor play
-Only talking about what the organization did wrong

I am pretty sure Andre was a backup for a few years after he failed as a starter...was he happy as backup? that is a different story buts its a fine line he is walking....I agree with Andre 100% but hopefully he related Carr's experience and mindset to his own and demonstrated a difference.

That's just the way you took it, he only actually said 1 of those things you named above.

Again, not saying he didn't.... Matter of fact i'll agree that he did fail the organization more just based on how much money was put into him.

But he was put into an almost impossible situation (expansion franchise starting QB) with pretty mcuh league 5th stringers. Virtually the same line is here from his last year, but hell, by then the damage is done. The guy took record setting punishment his 1st couple of years here. Is it really his fault that Capers & co. shuffled /shipped linemen around trying to keep up with injuries & had a gem (weary) right under their nose the entire time that wasn't starting? How about Bringing in bum after bum & what-not? What about that ingenious plan to release all of our old proven veteran players on defense for unproven young guys on defense instead of letting our then 15-17 rated defense take if only a little pressure off of him & the O? Yeah, he wasn't that good, but the texans didn't really help him out as much as everyone claims.

It's proven that getting hit too much ruins QB's either physically or mentally. Ask the now Skittish Kurt Warner & mr concussion Troy Aikman.

Football is the ultimate team sport, you keep thinking that you can do it all yourself...

Most of them just compile lists and parrot the thoughts of others. It's rare than anyone can watch all the prospects and see them enough vs quality opponents to form honest opinions on everyone. Personally, I just watch as much ball as I can and give my takes on the guys I personally see.

I think that these Carr quotes will be used for motivation.

This is a big game for the Texans organization, and even bigger for Kubiak as a head coach of the Texans.

The Texans take care business and come away with a solid hard fought victory, and people will be seriously considering the Texans as an upcoming team. Adding into the story that David Carr will be sitting on the bench on the other side of the field, well that is just gravey!

This game is more important than David Carr's departure, but it is so rapped up with everything else, it just provides more drive to get the job done.

I believe the Texans have a shot at winning this game. If they do, I hope some reporter will go up to Carr and ask him if he could have won that game as the Texans QB.

Carr is so stupid, it isn't even funny. He has really set himself up for failure while being a backup QB and not even taking a snap in the regular season. Once Schaub starts to really click with the offense, people will start to think Carr may have been more of the problem than a solution for the Texans. Then once Carr gets in a regular season game and plays the same as he did for the Texans, it will be over.

Carr probably has about 2 more years left in the NFL in my opinion. Sure he is young, but there is zero upside with younger guys showing promise of the future. Besides, Carr has been given so many opportunities that most guys would killed for. Like Adrian said in Rocky III, "There is no tomorrow!".

I get what you are saying. I was just saying that Andre needs to be careful criticizing someone who is a backup when he had a similar career arc to Carr. I qualified my statement in saying that I hoped Andre pointed out that he wanted to be the starter and wasnt happy just being a backup. Andre also had a hell of a lot more success at the college level and there is no question about that. Andre also didn't have the best supporting cast either in Detroit (although he did have a HOF RB in Sanders)

I agree that Carr is a loser though and anyone who has him as a victim really must have been in love with the guy.

I am sick and tired of all of this negativity towards David Carr. He is a great QB and could have lead the Texans to a superbowl someday. The reason he didn't is because of the Texans horrible O - line and not drafting Reggie Bush and ............. :tinfoil: ....BS ....yadda . . .balls on chin .. .... and thats why my brother is bestest ever.

sadly, I think he will get another chance post-Panthers. If he doesnt get a shot this year with the Panthers he will probably try and catch on with another team that will give him a shot to compete for starting job. Fox said that Carr was not coming in to compete for starting job with Jake. Carr will look for a better opportunity at some point but will inevitably fail as it is his destiny.

well Andre needs to watch what he says because Andre's career was really8 no better than Carr's and possibly even worse (which is pretty bad). i agree with Andre but momma always said that you don't throw stones if you live in a glass house. I am pretty sure Andre was a backup for a few years after he failed as a starter...was he happy as backup? that is a different story buts its a fine line he is walking....I agree with Andre 100% but hopefully he related Carr's experience and mindset to his own and demonstrated a difference.

Oh, I definetly hear what you are saying and I really wasn't leaning one way or the other - just commenting.

I get what you are saying. I was just saying that Andre needs to be careful criticizing someone who is a backup when he had a similar career arc to Carr. I qualified my statement in saying that I hoped Andre pointed out that he wanted to be the starter and wasnt happy just being a backup. Andre also had a hell of a lot more success at the college level and there is no question about that. Andre also didn't have the best supporting cast either in Detroit (although he did have a HOF RB in Sanders)

I agree that Carr is a loser though and anyone who has him as a victim really must have been in love with the guy.

Just because someone wasn't successful in certain field means their opinion isn't relevant to a similar situation? That makes no sense to me. If anything, maybe it makes it more relevant because they know what it takes.

I met Andre at a conference back in 2000 in Austin. He is a really cool guy and we talked a lot about of different things. I was just amazed that I was talking to a Heisman Trophy winner and just shootin it like I do with any other guy.

My opinion, Andre is great announcer for the Texans and his opinion on Carr is probably more valid than yours.

No offense Second Honeymoon, I like you and all, but you are way off the reservation on this one.

I just hope we win. Everything else is a side story. I'm hoping that we can take what we learned from game one and improve upon it in game two. Becasue the Panthers will be a lot tougher opponent.

Really if this means something to the guys in the locker room that maybe it'll motivate them even more. Personally I hope they approach it with more worry about Steve Smith then David Carr getting in. I think it'd be more fitting if they completely ignored the Carr situation becasue in the end that's what his time meant here. NOTHING. A more fitting epitaph IMO to the entire era and hopefully fans can move on.

The defense has it's share of Carr haters, mostly the guys that were with the team for a few seasons with Carr here. As many times as Carr put them in impossible situations and all the while keeping his job, along with that *******-eating grin he had on the sidelines afterwards, you can bet it bred resentment with some of those guys. We all know how Dunta feels about him, and you can pretty much bank on those comments being brought to their attention.

NFL teams don't have much time to prepare....so they are concentrating on the guys who play. Carr is where he belongs, on the bench. They are busy preparing for Delhomme. I think most guys are just glad that Carr is some other teams weakest link and not ours and not the slightest bit worried or concerned about him.

i agreed 100% with Andre. My point was that Andre needs to be careful criticizing being a backup because he was demoted to being one as well. He can criticize being happy being a backup all day long and for that matter he can criticize anything he wants. I just wanted Andre to realize that Carr is in a similar situation to what Andre went through but that the BIG difference is that Andre was probably not very happy about it while Carr seems to be embracing it and happy about it.

As for being off the reservation, its not the first time. I am having to play Michael Keaton from Mr. Mom this week with a sick child so I have been a little off kilter anyways.....nothing breaks my heart more than a 5 year old sweet little angel coughing all the time.

I like it when the back up QB is "pumped up".

I'm glad he's "kind of used to the Panthers" now, being they give him a paycheck and all.

And he "kind of like what we did last week". It seems so black and white, you like it or you don't. But somewhere in the middle - in the 'kind of like' section of life - we find David.


I kind of like the way you put that. It kind of makes sense when you look at it that way.

If it gets the guys pumped up to play then I guess...I just want them to focus on winning this week. I am sure the rest of the Texans have moved on from that sore spot in the locker room and are happy to start a new era without Carr.

OMG, what "kind of" quarterback talks like that. He's not very smart and he has always been very indecisive, on and off the field, obviously because that is how he feels. He always said really stupid things when he was interviewed. That fires me up reading that crap.

I hope we beat the ever loving **** out of Carolina and then they go interview Carr. I am playing for a good football team now. Uh......okay, I'm done.

Who cares what that loser has to say. It was disgraceful that that POS was our starting QB for 5 years. Loved the new haircut and Mickey Mouse gloves. He is such a joke. One of the most coddled players ever.

I'm sure Carr feels a little bitterness towards the Texans, but to me, his opinion is now irrelevant. David had his chance to state his case about being the QB of this team last year, and we all know what the results of that were.

In McLain's blog, he's got a video with some quotes from our guys.

http://blogs.chron.com/nfl/2007/09/texans_beat_panthers_play_colt.html

That "video" is just a sequence of stills from the game with interviews with the players on top.

The first picture is Schaub shaking Carr's hand. A little later, there's Carr and AJ.

Just thought I'd share that.
