Default Who does David Carr compare to?

I started this thread just to try to get a feel where other Texans fans think that Carr ranks compared to other NFL QBs...starters or backups.

Not based on potential, but on results....does he compare to Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, or Drew Bledsoe and Aaron Brooks?

Who is David Carr better than?
Who is David Carr worse than?

Bubby Brister. OK, that is stretching it. Bubby had some winning seasons but hey I have to give Carr the benefit of the doubt since he is still developing.

Default Re: Who does David Carr compare to?

Game manager

a little bit better than Kyle Orton
a little worse than Brad Johnson

in other words.....average.
He won't make the shoot in the foot mistake, but won't overcome adversity to win the game....lacks killer instinct, lacks emotion

loss after loss, "its aw shucks", needs to show fire, year 5 its time to step up and lead........lead........lead

everybody talks about the lack of leadership on defense when Glen and Sharper left, who's the leader on Offense.......whos going to step up......its time to lead.....lead.....lead. He's a vet now.....lead

right now he's better than Brad Johnson

he's worse than a younger Brad Jonson

Matt Shaub has never been given any serious time to play, so we really can't say he's better or worse........though I really like Matt Shaub and really wouldn't mind making a trade, although with Vick's performances lately Atlanta might not be so free to let him go.

Vick is gone...the Falcons didn't trade Shaub for a reason. I doubt Vick is with the Falcons next season.

Better than Jake Plummer, Mike Vick, Aaron Brooks, Eli Manning, Vince Young (until VY matures), Charlie Fry, Brad Johnson, Mark Brunell(any WASH QB), and Rex Grossman (who can only throw deep), Matt Leinhert (who should light it up with those BIG WRs)

Worse than P Manning, Brady, Brees, Rivers (though its nice to have L.T. as your RB), Palmer, Trent Green and Tony Romo (I gagged saying that)

In my opinion rookies should be left off the list

Lienart in year 5 is going to be ALOT better.

Young has already step into the leadership role on that team, everybody talked about his leadership comming out and its showing in the pros

Carr's problems are decision making. He plays into the D's hands. He has two great receivers he needs to look down feild more often. No I'm not talking about the deep ball, I'm talking about a 7 yard pass when you need 5, not a 2 or 3 yard pass.

It comes down to football smarts, I'll give him another year (just because of the running game and new system) but after that and he'll be entering year 7.... six years is plenty of time to show a feel for the game.

You also want to keep in mind that he's a #1 pick. Fankly, I can't compare him with any other high QB draft pick. He doesn't remind me of anyone... But if I were to pick, I guess I'd say he's a better Jake Plummer.

I'd say after watching the Pittsburgh game...Ben Rothlisberger Amazing...from Super Bowl to "help me, I've fallen and I can't get up!" I'd point out alot of obvious things, but when the herd is ready to hang a guy, it's not gonna do alot of good

Default Re: Who does David Carr compare to?

From what I see, Carr has three problems--lack of field vision, subpar footwork, and a refusal to pump fake. The footwork and pump fake can be cured. I'm not sure about the field vision, but I'm willing to give Kubiak a little more time to work on that.

To address the question more directly, I see Carr as similar to Steve McNair (through most of McNair's career), with the potential to become a Trent Green.
