To The Fan’s…This One’s for YOU!!
Here's to all the True Blue Texan Fan’s…and you know who you are! :) We, the Carr Family wish to express our deepest and warmest “Thank You” for all your gestures of kindness during the past two weeks. The beer incident at the stadium, on game day, was definitely not an indication of how our true Houston Texan’s fans behave. The cards, letters and posted comments on this board have taken, what was meant to be a mean spirited, cowardly act and turned it around to something truly amazing. Houston is a great town, with wonderful, down to earth people in it; we experience it on a daily basis. During the past 3 years, the FAN’S have been nothing less than “jubilant, respectful” people who are always ready with a smile or politely handshake. Living in a bubble has its challenges, as you may imagine, but from our view, you have made our transition a smooth one. As a whole, Houstonians are a people devoted to this fine city and their TEXAN’S.

This recent unpleasant incident will in no way hamper our trust in the “good in all people” if it did, the world would be a scary place to live. As David’s devoted mother, my heart was truly touched to see the outpouring of support and affection that you, the fans have shown my son David and his beautiful, loving wife Melody. They have been in awe and so appreciative of every card and letter. No one can promise that games like the last will never happen again, because football is a game that can bring your emotions to their highest highs and lowest lows in a matter of seconds. What we can promise to each other, is to be responsible and respectful and to try and make sure that everyone who passes through the gates of Reliant Stadium will experience something impressive! Let’s strive toward that goal, so visitors leave knowing, as we do, that Houston has the BEST FANS in the NFL! David is a fan himself who loves the game and wants so desperately to bring a championship home to Mr. McNair and Houston. He’s a proud man, very determined who works extremely hard at what he does, to achieve that very goal. This is an exciting time for Houston, as our young team begins to head into the future with dreams of many championships yet to come. There is work to be done, but so much to look forward to, as we go onward, “LOUD & PROUD” eager and enthusiastic!

Thank you once again, from the bottom of our hearts. Your expressions, no matter the size have meant so much. I am putting together a scrap book of all the wonderful cards and letters you’ve sent, for David and Melody to keep. It will be a constant reminder to them & our family of “unity and true kindness”. As the years go by, one day many years from now, David will pass the torch and it is this mother's highest wish, that my son will look back with fond memories of his career here in Houston and that he will leave behind a legacy that you, Houston and he can be proud of. Our family has much to be thankful for, as we anxiously await the arrival of David & Melody's new baby Carr…he will be our 5th grandbaby since moving to Houston. It must be something in this Texas water? We’ll keep you posted! A special thanks to my personal friend Sandy (She Texan) for all her support and friendship, she is what the word FAN stands for and a great friend! Thanks to you Vincent, for all your help and for being so accommodating to me and our family in posting this “Thank You”.

God Bless You All & God Bless TEXAS!

MomCarr8, David & Melody and the entire Carr family

Wow, very impressive that you took the time to write that great letter. Thank you so much, we appreciate all that your son, and your family, has done for this city.

Best wishes to all of the Carr family during the New Year, and GO TEXANS!

It took a lot of class to keep this sort of thing fairly "internal", as the few people that engage in this sort of behavior does not represent the average Texans fan, or average Houstonian. I hope that whoever was responsible for it was dealt with.

It was a privelage watching Dave play at Fresno State and it's a privelage watching him play now. I know how classy Dave and all of you are, your're all first class. Thank you for the well writen response. I wish you, Dave and the rest of your family the best. God bless and Go Texans

You gotta love the Carr family. Your family may not have originated in Texas, but im proud that I can call you Texans. We couldnt have asked for a better "first family" for this franchise. Thank you so much for your response, and the reassurance that the acts of a few fools did not sour yall to our city.

Cant wait for next season :)

(P.S. I hope David is pushing for some offensive line help.. we all want his career here to be long and injury free)

Thank you for taking the time to post your message, Mom Carr. It means a great deal to me, and I'm sure other fans as well, that you take the time to post a message such as this. I am so proud to have David as the leader of our franchise. I'm extremely proud of the job that David has done in representing our Houston Texans and the city as a whole. I personally feel that when the choice was made for David to lead our team, it was the right, and a great choice. I'm proud of our achievements as a team, and David's as well. David is a class act all the way...and that includes the entire Carr family.
I look forward to next year when we make it into the playoffs. I am confident that David, along with our much improved Texans team will take it to the next level next year. If disappointment is expressed on this website from time to time, it is out of frustration (as David himself has expressed publicly). This team has come so far in such a short time that we tend to lose sight of how young it really is. They are playing like a playoff team at times.
God willing, David and our entire Texans team will stay healthy and avoid injuries and will take us into Playoffs and eventually to Superbowl heights in the near future.
If we haven't said it before...."Welcome to Houston, Carr Family. We are proud to have you", and we hope that David and the entire family are here to stay.
And yes....Houston Fans, (as does the Carr fam) we do have alot of class. And don't think that the rest of the world doesn't notice......I was a volunteer on the Superbowl committee and heard nothing but praise from all of the visitors I met. Houston made a lasting impression. A GREAT ONE!

and all of the CARR-lettes

You are a classy family ,and I want to thank you for making football exciting for me again.

redlion 01-14-2005 07:49 AM

I'm glad the real fans stepped up and showed the Carr family what houston's all about.
Best wishes to the Carr family and hope to see David doing great things on the feild in the time to come.

TexanDave 01-14-2005 08:01 AM

Thanks for taking the time to write the letter and I am glad that you realize that incident is not a representation of how all fans feel. Yes we get upset with David at times when things don't go as we would like, but he is the leader of our team and with that comes the target for alot of the blame when our team loses. I am impressed by the way David has handled this situation and not made it openly public. That shows a great sign of maturity and I am confident he will be the man that brings Houston its first Lombardi Trophy.

"Let’s strive toward that goal, so visitors leave knowing, as we do, that Houston has the BEST FANS in the NFL! David is a fan himself who loves the game and wants so desperately to bring a championship home to Mr. McNair and Houston"

Go here but let's not discuss again. That "person" (who I wouldn't classify as a "fan") shouldn't get so much air time.

Tailgate 01-14-2005 08:54 AM

MomCarr, & the entire Carr family -- THANK YOU for the response. I know it makes many of us feel better about knowing you think that this one bad apple does not represent us as a whole... although, due to the classiness of your family, we assumed this to be true anyway.

This post just proves even more how blessed we are to have your family in our great city. We want nothing but the best for you and your family. No matter what happens on the football field...David has proven to be a hard working, loyal, talented, football loving, passionate, family man.

Thats EXACTLY who I want leading my team.


edo783 01-14-2005 09:19 AM

Thanks for the great post MomCarr. Class all the way.

Honoring Earl 34 01-14-2005 09:37 AM

Its easy
As fans we need to keep things in mind.The players and their families are people.What they do on the field does'nt entitle the fan to lash out physically against them or their family.Verbal abuse if its not G rated is unacceptable to.
To the person who threw the beer.I just wish it was'nt Melody Carr you hit but Ron Artest. :shocked

nflnutswife 01-14-2005 10:02 AM

We always had love & respect for our HoustonTexans, But now realize the magnitude of our "LOVE and RESPECT" ! WOW!


Yankee_In_TX 01-14-2005 10:08 AM

I'll say it again. With guys like Carr, Andre J, Wong, and Kris Brown, we have one of the classiest NFL teams I've ever seen.

Makes me proud to be an athletic supporter (bbbboooooo!) :-)

Thanks Mrs. Carr, and Grandma as always!

BradK10 01-14-2005 10:23 AM

Wow, that's about all I've got to say.
