Default QB come of age

I have no idea why I ever questioned the abilities of David Carr. This young man is something special. He has grown tremendously from day one and he now looks like the QB he was drafted to be. His maturity and poise is astounding. Never, ever doubt the drive and conviction of this guy again. We are very lucky to have him. 3 straight games with an unbelieveable amount of leadership and accuracy. I'm pumped for game 1. Imagine what he and the gang will do when they play then entire game.

Easy Sudds... don't get too hyped yet.




... but dang if I don't agree with ya. He's visibly improved this year, at least through 3 preseason games, in leadership and making decisions.

He has improved a lot since his first season but even a lot still since last season. It's definitely true when they say the third year is the key to seeing how good someone can/will be. I'm not saying that he's going to be great...but from what I've seen- he's on his way there.

He is making a lot better decisions and seems to be a little more patient with letting the plays develope. He has shown a lot of confidence in his abilities and the abilities of his fellow teammates. Although he is playing so well right now- he still has some rough edges and some polishing to do before he is a very good consistent QB.

Now we see how special this guy is and what the future may hold for football in Houston.

I agree with everyone thus far. Carr has always had the atheletic talent and ability, but it was the mental aspect that he needed to develop. He looks cool and calm in the pocket, and looks more like a savy veteran than a young gun. Dare I say 'Farveish'? That's who he sort of reminds me of, and a little bit of Elway too. His touch is much improved over last season, and with the exception of a few mental lapses he looks good out there. I can't wait till the season starts.

The quality that has me so enthusiastic about Carr's play in the frist few games is his newly displayed ability to comfortably sense the rush, step into (or out of) the pocket whilst keeping his focus on making plays downfield.

I told you so,.............I guess I did. Davie "Franchise" is growing right before our eyes. For all of those that get on the air and bash this guy, get a hold of yourselves. The maturity he is starting to show in the pocket is alot better than last season, getting rid of the ball, rather than taking the loss of yards is better, seeing the field is better, throwing the deep ball is better, heck, the kid is just playing better. Add in a healthy DD and unstoppable AJ, this offense could be unreal this season. Go Davie GO, prove all the haters wrong baby!

Agree... good call.

Flip side, don't call him Davie Franchise... sounds too close to a basketball player we had in town that didn't impress me on the team aspect.

Yeah, but the majority of the times that this happens is when the D- line is all over him and he must get rid of the ball. Our O-line, while steadily improving, still leaves a lot to be desired on pass protection. I mean, have you EVER seen Carr have the kind of time that Plummer, Roethlisberger, Maddox, etc etc has had against us? Even Once?
Better (imo) to hope that your receiver can make a play with the ball in their hands than to try to force something that is not there. Also, the receivers can improve on cutting off their routes before the first down marker.
All in all, I think that Carr has made excellent decisions this year.

A few posts dogging the D-line... while yes, there's room for improvement - how soon we forget the pre-season opener. Did this defense not get to the boys QB a few times... even a 2nd stringer defense?

The Pit game... I'm not even gonna count, a majority of the team didn't show up.

and if Carr would have roped that one a bit more instead of floating it, I think Bradford would have had a better chance of making the reception.
Exactly what I was saying.
