Default Coaches to Blame or Carr?

I'm not saying i think carr is to blame nor am i saying the coaches are. I just read this article on and i thought it was very interesting since, everyone went to jumping on the coaches after our three game losing streak.

David Carr's season has eerily mirrored the career of actor/musician Corey Feldman. With an early career that featured such hits at "Goonies," "Gremlins" and "Stand By Me," Feldman was a hot commodity in Hollywood. Early in this season, Carr finally started looking like an overall No. 1 pick and Houston, at 4-3, was the trendy AFC sleeper pick. Recently though, Carr's slide has been as steep as Feldman's (see: "South Beach Academy"). With large drop-offs in most statistical categories, Carr is easiest to blame for the Texans' three-game losing streak. In those three games, however, Carr has been sacked 11 times, and his main target, Andre Johnson, has zero touchdowns. If they want to stay alive in the AFC South and vie for a wild-card spot, the Texans must revive a 23rd-ranked rushing attack and take some weight off of Carr's shoulders.
These are the stats that go along with this article:

Carr's 2004 -- First 7 GMs (4-3) -- Last 3 GMs (0-3)
Comp % -- --- -- 66.0 -- --- -- 52.8
QB Rating -- --- -- 99.7 -- --- -- 61.7
TD/INT -- --- -- 9/5 -- --- -- 1/3
