Default Carr to the Raiders?

I'm going to assume that the Texans want to get rid of Carr after the season. Let's not argue about this point, let's assume this is correct. What do y'all think the chances are the Raiders would trade for him?

Raiders need a QB....they're not getting Quinn, why would they? They passed on Leinert and Cutler last year. I don't think they'll get Quinn even if he's there for the taking.

With this draft being so weak at QB and the FA being so weak at QB, I think they'd seriously consider Carr. I'd even go as far as to say they would offer a 3rd rounder for him. I just hope we would take an offer like that.

It's the least they could do after the whole P Buc fiasco, but I don't think Al Davis is senile enough to do this, yet.

Why would he want to go there? Their O-line is about as bad as ours. You think he wants to be the crash-test dummy for the Silver and Black?

Carr is a California guy.....northern Cal at that. I think they'd gamble on Carr over Aaron brooks again. They need alot of positions filled and QB is one of their priorities.

I thought that this was just the kind of reach that Al Davis like to make. Until Carr passed for -5 against his team.

Well, no team will trade for a guy who has no intention of playing for them, unless they've already got a third team lined up to take him...

What other choices does Carr have really? Stink it up for another year in Houston and decrease his stock even more? Go to Oakland and hope for the best?

Atleast he'd be closer to home

Not really... Bakersfield is closer to LA - probably about 100 miles north...

Default Re: Carr to the Raiders?

I went to the Raider game a couple of weeks and hung out with a lot of characters you see on TV and read about.

I asked a lot of them what they thought of Carr. They basically could care less.

Al Davis does not what he wants, but there really isn't fan support from what I saw to take on Carr. Some actually laughed about it and thought Carr would have an even tougher time due to their line problems.

I seriously doubt Carr would go to the Raiders, particularly with their line problems as well. But, that is assuming McNair would part ways. That isn't going to happen. The flag is planted.

Where would Carr "fit in"?

Tampa?
Carolina?
Detroit?
Minnesota?
KC-Green isn't a spring chicken anymore.

Since this is hypothetical and a lot of fun....

I could see him in Minnesota. Better line, and a better running game. Less emphasis on him having to do something great and more on just moving the chains.

Tampa has Simms.....not sure what will become of him or if he plays again.

Carolina has an aging Delhomme, they could sit Carr for a year.

Detroit will probably draft Quinn.....they already had Harrington, don't know if they'd want Carr.

Minnesota might be a good fit. Plus Carr lit it up against them, maybe they remember.

KC has Huard, but he's aging. Green is aging too. I think they'd make Carr sit a year.

He has no say in the matter. And Carr's not the type of guy to be confrontational about it. If he's dealt, he's going.
