Default To the Texan Fans:

I was at the game and I have to say the Texan fans where I sat were pretty hospitipal and generally pretty tolerant of us Eagle fans. Thanks for that and good luck with rest of the season.
I'll be pullin for you guys the rest of the way.


On another note though, I was surprised to see the boos come so quick for Carr, you guys were one play away from really being in this game thru the 3rd quarter and into the 4th you still had a significant edge in T.O.P. so it wasn't like you were completely dominated. Carr looked superb during the 1st quarter, made a couple of bonehead plays later but I'm not so sure those were his fault. I can see where the coaches think he has the raw talent to excel.

Thanks. How is it the other way around? (When at the eagles) I ask because I've heard it could be worse than going to the Raiders.

The boos are frustration after YEARS of the same-ole with little to no improvement. We should not be in this situation.

Thanks for your kind words and good luck to your team as well(SPANK DALLAS) On the Carr comment the anti-carr fans will continue to boo and try to ripp everything he does. The only thing that will change it is for Carr to prove it on the field. I have faith and I think we got a glimps of it on sunday.

I enjoyed your fans as well. Thanks for the compliment. Didn't like watching Westbrook continually school us, but hey....in general the fans' part of the day was a blast.

We Texans think that we are very hospitable to the rival fans and welcome those who don't have negative intent to come and partake in our good time each home game. We may not have the best team yet, but we have started the legacy of having some of the best fans and most hospitable stadium. We continue to grow it.

Carr has no good will left with a lot of the fans.

Even good quarterbacks do bonehead things (see e.g. the McNabb interception). It happens. Much of the fanbase has no more tolerance for mistakes.

It will be that way until we see more play like the first quarter or when Carr leaves the team.

It's sad, but it is what it is.
