I will give you that the QB gives the team its identity but it hardly makes a team. Look at past QBs like Archie Manning, Dan Marino, even John Elway in his early years. You have to have a team around the QB in order to succeed.

Rarely has a team gone to the playoffs giving up 5 sacks a game.

I for one am hoping David Carr performs surgery on your mouth to remove the foot but we have to be honest here. The team has not changed since last week.

Go Texans! It is upset time.

Speak for yourself B o B.... My wishes are that this team comes to play today and all this Carr/Capers/Palmer/TEXANS bashing comes to an end.

Here's an idea... how about we support our team and players

I have sat quietly by for the past three seasons waiting to see some excellence in this Houston Texan team. So far, I have been disappointed. For three years we have seen David Carr sacked over and over again. I have seen balls dropped by receivers that my daughter could catch. What is going on? Our first round, first pick in the 2002 draft hasn't lived up to the hype. I believed that once we aquired Carr, and after a season or two, the Texans would be unstoppable. I understand that this team is made up of mostly new players to the NFL or second-rate hand-me-downs from other teams. But coming into the fourth season, it's no excuse. By season four, the Texans should have built a solid passing game with Carr at the helm. The team should have been molded into a force that other teams fear. That is not the case. I have made some observations as to why:
Did anyone notice how easily the linebackers and defensive line of the Bills penetrated the Houston offensive line? Maybe Carr should stop worrying about his hair and take care of his players that protect him. It was almost like they LET the defense come through. I think Carr forgot to take the line out to a steak dinner before the game; or he did, but stiffed them with the bill. The Houston Texan offensive line? Thats what they are... offensive and groetesque.
Where is leadership from the stellar David Carr? After a sack that was brought on by a simple missed block, has anyone seen Carr grab that lineman by the facemask and scream, "Get your head out of your @$$?". After a dropped pass that looked like an easy catch, have you seen Carr rip him a new one in the next huddle? Here's what I've seen, David Carr ranting and raving on the sideline and then sulking in his pitty. He wines about most things, but does nothing to change them.
When a person, such as Carr, worries about their hair as a publicity stunt instead of proving their worth on the field, they belong to the ever growing Hall of Disappoint with the likes of Leif and the Boz. Prove your worth by what you can accomplish on the grid-iron. I'm tired of seeing you play golf and brush your hair around your ears on TV. Play football.
Why am I picking on our star QB David Carr? Because he is suppose to be the leader! No one person on the team, including the Coach, can drive the momentum of a game like like the quaterback. Carr needs to step up and motivate his team members. Favre fights for his team, and they respect him. Manning supports his team, and they block for him. Carr sits back and does nothing, and his Texans fall apart. That is the difference between a good QB and legandary QuaterBack. Carr falls somewhere below a good QB. A legandary QuaterBack takes whatever offensive line he is given and works miracles. "When life gives you a lemon, make lemonjuice... don't become the damn lemon!" - Proteus
I have read a few posts here in the Texans message board about a trade for Billy Volek of the Titans. He might not be the classical QB for the NFL, but he does possess one thing Carr lacks, the respect of his teammates. I have seen Volek throw wild passes that are not even close to their mark, but the reciever will sacrifice their body to catch it. I have seen the Titans offensive line use utter disregard for their safety protect Volek. For Carr, the Texans let linebackers through for a sack and not feel one ounce of regretfullness when David is laid out on his back. When a reciever drops and easy pass, it's like, "Oh Well, I'll catch Bank's throw when he comes in in the fourth quater after Carr gets injured." What is Carr lacking that makes the Texan's play harder for Banks and not him?? Maybe a trade for Volek with Carr would be what this Texan team needs.
It's time for a change. One more season to suffer through as I watch my Texans fall further down the **** shoot. Capers and the higher ups may want to reevaluate the Texan lineup after this season. If it means getting rid of Carr, so be it. It might be the change we are looking for. This is going to be a LONG season....
I want somebody to count how many times he said Carr

Default The end is Near

Well, I went to the doctor after the game. He gave me a clean bill of health and said that my foot was no where near my mouth. <sigh of relief>
As I said before, this team couldn't get any worse. Carr causes the only turnover in the game, scrambles out of the pocket on every play, and makes the dumbest decisions when passing. Capers, I don't even need to talk about you. Everyone watching this game new you were watching a different one. The O-line, thanks from all of us. We are on the path to breaking our previous record of most sacks in a season. Thank you again. I took the Houston Texan bumper sticker off of my car today. Everyone here in NV always laughed at me, now I just want to be the unknown Texan fan. Does anyone read my posts without the Red-and-Black goggles on? I was hoping that this loss would be painless, but I knew that wouldn't be the case. The play calling was dismal and the play execution from Carr and the O-line made me sick. If anyone agrees with me, welcome to the other side. Atleast I'm not in denial anymore... and the truth shall set you free. Trade Carr, Fire Capers, send the Inquisition to get the O-line. Lets start from scratch next year and rebuild a good team. In five years, Carr will be working at Wal-Mart as a greeter, Capers will be coaching high school football in some small 7-man football team, the O-line will still be in an internment camp, and the Texans might be in the playoffs. Lets just get through this season and make money betting against the Texans.
