haha this is funny once david carr strings along a couple of good games you same people that are dogging him are going to be calling him god, come on guys it's one game, need i remind you how the astros stunk last year and this year, how the rockets started last year hovering around .500, in the nfl more than any sport, it's not how you start it's how you finish detroit started 2-0 last year and went on to be 6-10, give this team some time ya the schedule is hard but if they pull a couple games out here and maybe sit around .500 mid way through the season you could see this team make a push for the playoffs........ dont jump off the band wagon just yet people

I am not dogging Carr for the school he played for. My point is that Small to Medium sized schools (BCS defined only) have put out some terrific players. This list of players that you provided, most of them have been more successful than Carr and came with a smaller price tag.

I dont think its all him but, if he has lost it, you need to blame the franchise. No player can take the beating he has and still be perfect. His trust in the organization is shot, which shows by his scared rabbit play style. He begged for more protection and they did next to NOTHING. This problem may not be resolved until new blood comes in and follows through with their promises.

Considering everyone had a bad game then would we run the same scenario of equal porportions on ALL the players? Do we fire the coaches too in your scenario?

Carr is taking more of his share of the blame for this loss.

Here's my thoughts on Carr:

He's proven he's a good QB, he has this season to prove he's a great one. Great quarterbacks win football games. Period. The O-line is extremely important, but the intangibles your QB can bring are important too. You can't tell me that if Donovan McNabb or Daunte Culpepper were our QB we couldn't find a way to score some points. This is Carr's chance to prove he's that caliber a player (and I really think he might be). The Carr in this opening game did not look like the guy who took every snap of the season as a rookie, while setting an all time sack record. I want him to show that kind of heart and leadership again. When he get's forced to run - I don't want to see any of this sliding bull****. He's a big boy, he can take a lick, and God knows we need every yard we can get. I want to see him make better decisions. Sometimes he is going to have to just throw the ball out of bounds, but he seems to do it too often at the wrong times. Like on 3rd down. If he throws a pass that bounces of his receivers elbow, if his receiver gives up on a route early, if his receiver fails to come back towards him when he get's in trouble - I want to see him running down field and grabbing that receiver by his face mask and giving that dude a piece of his mind. I'm saving judgement 'till the season ends. I think Carr can be great, but I need to see the toughness and intensity he showed in his first season. If he's become complacent - we don't need him as a leader.

I don't think Carr is completely to blame for this loss. I don't think he's "god" when he plays well either but in the past I think I did. I've come to the realization that David Carr is not "RoboQuarterback" and there are very real issues with his game that, in our current state become very magnified. The very things that Carr comes up short at are the ones we least can afford to have a QB do so it looks worse than it is.

It doesn't mean he sucks or that we need to trade him for Volek. It just means that we need to do what every other team in the NFL does. We need to gear our offense towards his strengths and try to minimize his weaknesses.

I keep hearing that Sportsradio 610 Budweiser commercial parody:

"Here's to you Mr Preposterous Trade Suggestor...."

We need a Stud LT in rd 1 and then either block first catch second TE in rd 2, or a stud WR in round 2(then the TE in rd 3.)
Then we can drop Bradford, use AJ Mathis on the ends, use stud WR pick in the 3, and utulize Gafney as a 4

Well Alex, I will take who are people who have never eaten in my mother's kitchen for 1000.

Unfortunately, probably only 1 or 2 people will figure that out.

If you think Leftwich is better than Carr you need to put the pipe down. Do a little research. Leftwich has had a better defense, better O-line, and still he has repeatedly put up worse numbers than Carr.

Also if you put Carr on the 04' Steelers, he probably would have been selected to the probowl. Throw Big Ben in our offense and behind our O-line last year and everyone would have been yelling that we had a BUST of a #1 pick.

There are 10 other guys on the field. Their play matters too.

maybe the opening game in Buffalo wasn't Carr's best, even half best but what I liked that gives me hope is that he held his composure under brutel circumstances. the only touchdown drive all day was Carr carrying the team on his back/head. if Bradford had good hands and caught that one bomb right in the middle of his chest its 14-19 and a whole new ballgame.

I realize the frustration everyone feels on this board but Carr gives the Texans their best chance to be a winning team, he needs backs to stay in & pick up the blitz, linemen to open up lanes for the backs to run through & a pocket that doesn't collapse, he also needs receivers besides AJ to step up make the catch & hold onto the ball. if this happens his confidence should improve, his drops will be more decisive as well as his throws and decision making.

I would also like the Texans to let Carr run the shotgun offense

To the rest of you stop

I don't beleive it either. I blame the head coach for all of it. They will not let him open the passing game up. Short passes and a running back who cant hit the holes this year. To me, the whole game plan is so predicatable, it's pathetic. I think Carr will be just fine once we draft a stud at running back and a few OL's and leave the defense along.

I knew we were in trouble from the pre-season game where we had 1st and goal and Capers made them run 4 straight running plays to try and score only to be rejected.... Not one pass to the tight end or WR down there.....
