I'm terified of what would happen if we put a QB with as little scrambling ability as Ragone behind the Texans horrible o-line. It can't get much worse than the last game though.

Ok, this poll is stupid. The fact that so many people voted for Ragone proves that this board is full of knee-jerk chicken little's who have no sense of reality. I'm not defending Carr's performance, but this is just as embarassing.

Carr will be ok. If you watched the game yesterday you would see that he is supremely unconfident in the offense and offensive line. I mean it is the same things we were talking about all offseason that did not get addressed. Well let's talk about what did get addressed and how many whiffs Morlon Greenwood had as DJ put up 8taks and a sack. Let's discuss how we had no leadership in the secondary or on the field. We will be ok at least after going 0-2 Palmer will be on his way out. What happened to the three step drops and quick fire. I did not see that, I saw a QB who hated the playcalling and was holding the ball to long waiting for someone other than the double and sometime tripled covered AJ to get open. Damn Palmer...

Palmer to be be QB, let Carr call the same plays for him.

Bring in Capers for DD... don't think there will be quite as much time to write down what happened on the last play.

Finally, Casserly for Riley. Gotta protect Palmer's backside don't cha know? True, there may not have been that good O-linemen this past draft that fit into our... um, scheme?... but what about the previous years?

As for the poll - tough decision. I'd like to save Carr's life and keep him out to maybe learn a little more on the sideline (ala S. McNair style) but flip side, I'd like to see our offensive leader bounce back with some authority.

being a colt fan I have no bias, but carr is the qb, the problem with the texans isn't the qb it is the o line.

Oh i'd give the keys to Ragone, that way David Carr can stay healthy and all you people think that it's David Carrs fault for our bad play can take another look at out offensive line, lack of a good TE, and a lack of a #2 reciever.

Actually we will probably be starting a different QB in week three regardless. This week the Steeler's defense is watching tape of our pathetic excuse for an O-line. I'm sure by the end of the viewing session they will be frothing at the mouth. I expect Carr to be injured in this game as they sack him about seven times and flatten him a half dozen others after he gets the ball off.

I think Banks should start. Ragone is good for a trade and is worthless injured and we can set a new all time sacks allowed record since Banks is a statue.

I think this coaching staff has totally ruined a good QB (Carr). How long can a QB set back there and get hammered before it takes a negative affect on his progression. The poor guy is so scared of getting drilled he only looks for one receiver then takes off or dumps to DD. They should have never started him until they had a decent line to protect him. Who knows if he will ever get over the beatings he has taken at the expense of the O-line. I say they should start one of the others and let Carr regroup. Banks plain sucks though, and Ragone needs more development, so what are we to do but keep calling for Palmers head?

Everyone is going to get their wish, Carr will be on the sidelines with an injury by the 4th game so we will see what Ragone will do.

What does Capers do with all those notes he takes? I bet they are all piled up in his living room...all over the floor, couches, tv, ...just everywhere. Mrs. Capers probably says "Dom, would you clean up all these paper notes - they are all over the place - what are you gonna do with em?"...Capers replies "Im gonna get to em....eventually."

I dont want anyone to get the wrong idea of why i started this topic. When Carr was drafted, I was among the most excited. Year one, then two, at points, I really saw David making some good plays. I AM a David Carr fan. Unfortunatly, I am also a Texans fan. You have to do what it takes to win. And if that means benching the star...you have got to do it. I dont want this Houston team to end up moving to another state because fans get tired of the losses. Houston is not like Cleveland in which they care so much about the game of football they dont even notice their team has losing season after losing season. The city of Houston and Texas wants and deserves wins. I do not want the label of "Big Business, Bad Football" on the Texans as it was on the Oilers.

The fact of the matter is that Carr is not showing enough effort out there. I know the system isnt great...but every team has an obstacle...our coaching staff is ours. I just want to see what a fired up confident QB like Ragone can do for the team.

I say we put Casserly in there, agreeing with the guy who said it first.

Default Not even a choice.

Ragone? Banks?

Did you voters even see the game?? Carr is the easy choice. He was running for his life all day. That O-line is awful.
No QB does well with a bad O-line, and only one receiver.
Only the football-ignorant fan could possibly believe Carr should not start.

Ragone can trade his European MVP trophy for a wienerschnitzel. That's about what it's worth.

I saw the game just fine thatnkyaverymuch. I have been watching football longer than some of you have been alive..parts of 4 decades. What I saw out there by our QB was an embarrasement. If I were Carr, I would write a giant check to Mr. Mcnair today to give him back some of my money, otherwise I would be guilty of theft. His QB rating was 12. TWELVE. How can you people possibly think some of that doesn't fall on Carr's shoulders? Why is he the golden boy, with this invisible ring of invinceibility around him? He seems to have some kind of super hero powers to make everyone think he is mistake free, as if he is a cog in a machine that is out of his control. If Carr was a Warren Moon, there wouldn't be a person in this city calling for his head after that atrocity. I think you know where I am going with this...the blond hair, the family man, the commnuity activist, and all around good guy can do no wrong. This is the 10 thousand pound Elephant in the living room, and it's very obvious. Let's face facts, there is a double standard. :brickwall

My vote easily goes to Ragone. Can Ragone possibly have lower than 12? If so, I would like to find out on my own thank you.

Start Carr. If he gets hit with 3+ sacks and/or 2+ ints before halftime, then bring in Banks.

No use throwing Ragone to the wolves and taking a chance of him developing happy feet, too.

You may have watched football longer than most but you can't determine Carr doesn't have blonde hair?
