Default Peter King Picks?

Amazing, he even gives props to David Carr.

A week too late, Clinton Portis gives the Redskins a 118-yard rushing game. But it's not enough to stop David Carr. Has anyone noticed how well this guy is playing?
I'm in shock...

That scenario is not out of the realm of possiblity. He's getting too much credit from outsiders for that QB ratio, but he's not getting enough from his own fans who think you just replace the QB every time we lose.

Another example of how King looks solely at stats and never really watches the games.

Ditto... He must have caught the last quarter of the colts game before making that statement.

If David can play like that for 4 quarters, he will be a God in Houston.

Carr just needs to take care of business then.

The next two weeks are golden opportunities to put "THE GREAT TEXANS DEBATE" to rest by David Carr himself.

We'll see.

Actually, I am looking forward to these next two games. I think it will tell us a lot about the team.

OK this is a fantasy guy (players he loves this week) but it was kind of funny:

Quote:
David Carr, QB, Texans. What's worse? Needing a QB this week so badly you're looking hard at David Carr, or being a fantasy expert and Redskins fan who has to type Carr's name because you know he actually will have a good game against the banged-up, horrific defense of your beloved Redskins?

Andre Johnson, WR, Texans. Seriously, I'm gonna throw up here soon.

Owen Daniels, TE, Texans. If you own Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates or Jason Witten, need a bye-week fill-in and didn't get Desmond Clark, here's a guy who could find the end zone. Because, as I might have mentioned, my Redskins are horrific.

Redskins RB Clinton Portis or RB Ladell Betts. As of this writing, Portis is expected to play, but that obviously can change. Whoever gets the start will get the rock a lot on the road.

It is strange to me with those that are impatient with Mario, but are patient with DC. 2 games versus 60 is a little bit of a difference.

HAHA, where do you people find these things. You have way too much free time. Are you a college student too? J/K. That's a great find.

Are there a lot of those folks out there? Just wonderin'

In any event, Mario should get more slack than Carr at this point. However, even outside Texan land QB's running new systems get slack--just today on ESPN they were talking about Brunell (14th year in the league) needing time to adapt to Saunders' system. Anyone who thought the turn around (if it comes) would be overnight is just as unrealistic as someone saying Mario should have already impacted the league.

I have not seen any data on the amount, but a strange comparision nonetheless.

Saunders inherited Brunell, while Kubiak wanted Carr extended because, I am guessing, that Carr could pick up the offense quickly as well as all of the other variables that make him the winner he is.

Carr is playing as well as he can, which is good and bad. The rest of the team clearly needs to step up. Including Moulds for the sake of my fantasy life.

edit: Peter King is crazy
