I think we should start Carr since he usually does a great job with his opening drive and manages to stay in the game for at least a half. Then start Van Pelt after halftime. Since our coaches seem unable or unwilling to make halftime adjustments, this will take it out of their hands and confuse our opponent.

The difference..Romo has been in dallas a while. Van Pelt hasnt even been around a week. I am curious to how good he is but tossing him into the pit will not help matters.

Bucky Richardson's probably better than VP. Even to this day.

I'd say start Carr, and after his first screw up, pull him since he has a tendency to just get worse after he messes up...

And hasn't taken a snap since 2005...

Given that, Cody "the Commander" Carlson should be available, but I also liked someone's suggestion of Bucky Richardson too.

I am so glad! It is beginning to get scary around here. Everyone needs to take a "chill pill" and settle. All things in good time.......

I looked for the "not in this lifetime" option, but settled for no. Only the "I hate Carr" Cult members vote yes, Van Pelt is nothing more than an running QB (a very ballsy one at that too).
