I must say this. I think Manning would do a hell of alot better than Carr. Why? Well just the audibules he throws at defenses would confuse anyone. He is not only smart he's a field general. He commands respect and blocking from his line. David Carr is too nice because if I got sacked that many times there is no way in hell that a string of words would not shoot from my mouth evertime I talked to my o-line in regards to them thinking we are playing a highschool team. Manning commands respect Carr just wants it. I'm telling you if I was a QB who got sacked the refs would be calling me for face mask against my own players because I would make there lives a living hell everyday. Also Manning is to the point where he can probably interject to the coaches who he wants to block for him, just like Elway had power within the Broncos organization. Carr needs to have a hand to throat talk with his o-line and I think they will not only listen but respect him more.

I remember Carlson was suppose to be the next big thing when the Oilers drafted him ..... What a joke . We should be happy with Carr .... Even if he isnt the worlds greatest QB it could be Much worse !

Trull was a few years ahead of my time .... According to that card I was One when he retired ....

I just read the first post on this thread. Sign a petition to bench David Carr? How do stupid ideas like this pop into people's heads?

I know it's cliche but it's true: QBs take too much heat when things are bad and get too much credit when they're good.

Everyone expects Peyton Manning like production from a QB. Funny thing is- Peyton gets criticized by Indy fans for not winning big games. Elway was criticized until the end of his career. Cowboy fans wanted to trade Aikman and keep Steve Walsh. The list goes on and on. Carr is three years into his career and I believe most NFL personnel people would tell you that he is in the top half of NFL starting QBs... I certainly can't name 16 that are better than he is. Let's not forget that he's still learning the position.

It worked? Umm, no. It may, and probably will, but it hasn't happened yet.

Everyone remember this quote by the great Bill Parcells (notice the sarcasm)

"The most popular guy on the team is always the backup QB"

Makes all the sense in the world.
