None of the above... I want to see him getting more confident. If you can believe Kubiak, Carr has the talent to be a good QB once he gets past all the sacks from previous years.

What I WANT to see is confidence in the pocket. Win or lose I want to see him step up into pressure and deliver the ball.

300 yards passing would be great, but I look for it to be more in the 200yrd with 2td 1int range.

I voted other because I want a win, but I want Carr to manage the game, which is what I think Kubiak wants Carr to do. I don't consider Carr a playmaker. I consider AJ, Moulds, DD (when healthy); they are playmakers. Carr just needs to get them the ball and step back and watch.

This isnt a very good poll. Why would anyone want to see him lose (although I am an Eagles fan). I think you mean "What do you expect from him"

well I am not wanting us to lose, but the Texans go as Carr goes..

with every Carr debate you have the ones that think he stinks no matter what..

What happens to get their point of cross is :
1)Texans win yet they point to Carrs tendencies and that we won because of someone else.
2) Texans lose: they say Carr didnt' do enough.

i also want to see confidence from Carr. i don't want to see him with happy feet, jumping around in the pocket. it may take a while as he's got to get some faith in his line that he will get time to look at more than 1 option before running for his life

Totally agree with this,just MANAGE THE GAME. Don't try to do anything out of character and don't force anyhting.MANAGE THE GAME and let the pieces fall where they may.

ill take a win, regardless of how carr performs...however, what i want isnt listed as an option on the poll. i want carr to win by throwing to WR's down the field. i want carr to toss for at least 220 yds and 1 TD.

...what bothers me is ALL the threads that are about the SAME thing, often within 2 or 3 spots in the order--either folks don't read or they don't comprehend...maybe there should be a prize for all new/original/pertinent threads with extra pts for not mentioning Carr/Bush?young

I also agree, that I voted for none of the above. I do want a win, but I want to see the David Carr that Kubiak expects. I want to see a confident QB, that is saying to himself that this is a whole different team with a whole new set of coaches, with him thinking "if they have faith in me, then I should put faith in them and do exactly what is asked of me. Nothing more, nothing less." I would also like to see him manage the game better. What I mean by this is that if the protection is to break down and he has to scramble, that he doesn't cause a turnover or just run out of bounds, (I.E. throw the ball away if there is nothing down the field.) I don't have to see a perfect QB, just an improved QB that is willing to give it his all and play SMART.

I guess I'm the only one that thinks I've already seen a different side of Carr. Yeah, he still doesn't look off very well. And Yeah, the dump off seems to come way too quickly, and yeah, he still seems to have happy feet. But he has also started to move the pocket much better than he ever has, and he is looking for the second receiver at least.

I want the Texans to thump the Eagles. And I honestly believe that is possible. The "D" looks so much better. Now they are an attacking Defense, not the "Rock back on your heels and wait" Defense from the last couple of years. The Defense seems to have found some of the Demon Speed that we have all been looking for. If they can keep McNabb off balance, contain Westbrook on the option, and stuff the run.....well, the mind boggles!!
