Default Interview with David Carr from Profootballweekly.com

Quote:
PFW: Can you assess where this franchise is after three years?

Carr: I think when I first got here, it was kind of like when I was in college. Pat Hill at Fresno State, he was just starting out, and the city was excited. The players that were coming in and were his first recruiting class, we were excited. It was a lot like that when we started out here. Everything was brand-new, from our first win to our first road-trip win to our first everything. It seemed like everything was a first for three years until we started doing things for a second and third time. It was kind of neat starting it out, seeing how the city has stuck with us and grown with us. It was kind of a neat deal to get to see the thing from the very beginning to where we’re at right now. Sometimes we play like a pretty good football team. So it’s kind of nice to see.

This moment was Carr's favorite.
Quote:
PFW: What’s your favorite moment in your three years with the Texans?

Carr: Probably my favorite moment was a game that we lost. We played Minnesota earlier this year, and we were down by 21 points. And we were backed up on our 10-yard line. We had, I think it was a TV timeout, and I said, ‘Guys, if we want to be anything, we better make something happen right here.’ Because we were starting to win some football games, we were starting to get some respect from people. And we were sitting down 21 points in our own stadium about to embarrass ourselves. The guys responded. They played completely above their capabilities for the next two quarters. We were able to come back and get in to overtime. Unfortunately, we lost in overtime, but just the fact they kind of rallied around all together, it kind of showed we can pull together and we are starting to become a football team.

Leadership skills: Absolutely! If we can get that zone blocking scheme solid and help him with a better C & TE, next year we'll see truly what we have in Carr. I'm really hoping that Dom & Palmer will cut him loose and let him play like he did in the Minny game.

Bottle how many TEs are in the Hall of Fame. Why was Tony Gonzales holding out ? He wanted wide reciever money. The Eagles just signed a constuction worker to play in the super bowl as a TE. They're really not going to make or break you. Their not the cake not the icing but the sprinkles. JMO

Some people don't feel like their cone is complete without the sprinkles.

Hell they could be the walnuts, the cherry, the fudge, or the crushed oreo's but I still think it would help. Some of the teams that beat us, while maybe not beating us with their TE shure used them to get those first downs and positive yardage. green Bay sticks in my mind. Having a Bubba Franks, Shannon Sharpe, or a Shockey (yeah I know, well how great of a season did he have? (still had TD's though) would help. You can't forget a Mark Bavaro either. The more people you can send out without the QB getting sacked, the better. 4 WR sets isn't something I recall seeing too often from us either. Not too hard to stop 2 wideouts at a time, when you know that most likely that TE's isn't going to release.

How many teams have won the Super Bowl without solid production from the TE spot?

If there are any (I can't think of anyone offhand), there aren't many.


I'm not talking Pro Bowl level production, but at least above average production.

The TE is vital to success in red zone and short yardage situations whether thru blocking or catching tough passes. It is no coincidence that good teams succeed in those situations. And it is no coincidence that good teams almost always have good TE's.

Takes a 15y/o to have a little common sense!! Good observation dunta! There's not a TE in the NFL that can prove his worth if he's not given the chance. Billy just happens to be one of David's favorite targets. It's just to bad the powers that be won't let him throw to him more.

Who are the Pats TE's right now. I don't remember any of them since a guy named Benjamin Coates. They bring in a LB to play the TE position at the goaline.

Watson was on IR most of the year so look for him to have more production next season. Watson and Graham are both first round draft picks from the last few Patriot drafts. The Colts drafted a first day TE in the last draft when they had Pollard and Clark (first round pick), as did the Chiefs drafting Kris Wilson (second round pick) on the first day when they had Tony Gonzales. The TE position is critical and one reason we struggle.

I know you are a B Miller fan but we have guys that can catch the ball and as an added bonus run a lot faster. I like the guy too but he's a liability at TE, basically a slow WR. Put Armstrong or Gaffney on those shorter routes and there's far more offensive efficiency (hence why we run so many 3 WR sets). A TE is almost worthless if he can't block unless he is on elite levels as far as speed, run power etc. All Miller really has is his hands, which all our WRs have.

The fact that Carr threw to BM so much is testament how little time he had with that crappy offensive line. I think half those guys are probably out of the league at this point, and backups if they're lucky.

On a related note, didn't our old friend Steve Herndon make an appearance at RT on the Eagles line during the NFC championship? I couldn't believe my eyes.

If you're thinking of Jimmy Herndon, he's out of the league. Steve Herndon is a backup OL for the Falcons.

A TE like Gates, who can make some noise, would be great.

My mistake. I felt there had to be something wrong there, because there was no way the Texans Herndon was still on the league.
