Default WTF? Carr quote...

If this has been posted already, sorry for the repost (mods delete if you please), but I looked through the forums and didn't see anything about it.

Quote:
QB David Carr

(on the possibility to finally beat the Colts) “Yeah, that would be awesome. It’s going to be sweet. I want to go out there and obviously I want to win, but they are trying to win the game too, right? And this week I think they might wrap up home field advantage and get to stay at home. Everyone knows that is obviously important. But we’re hungry too. It’s been a long time coming as far as playing these guys and feeling good about yourself when you leave. We definitely could use one.”
Please, somebody else tell me that you see problems with that sentence.

Yea, he sucks and he is no leader. What an embarrassment to the Texan organization. I like how he is giving up before the game has even been played. But he's a nice guy right.

Default Re: WTF? Carr quote...

you are taking it out of context.

he was saying it in the form of a question. As in, "This game is important to them too because I think they are trying to wrap up homefield advantage, arent they?".

Not "they are going to beat us and get homefield advantage"

Maybe i missing the point, but it sounds like he is talking about the Colts motivation to win the game. He is not sure of the Colts exact playoff status. Carr is not making a declarative statement of what will happen, but really asking a kind of rhetorical question.

Funny in his after practice conference Kubiak made similar statements. I guess we had better question Kubiak as to why he would say such things....

Why don't we realize a little bit about the comment and put it in the context of Carr talking about the Colts desire to win this weekend? Or we could remain in the 7th grade talking about how every word that David Carr makes him like "the worst leader in all the NFL."

Brilliant idea given the "we" you speak of is a resounding two members. It looks goofy, but is definitely in the context of why it is important for the Colts to win the game. Get a grip for the Texans by releasing the grip on Kubiak.

Sure, let's ask Kubiak. You call him and let me know what he says. I will be waiting since you seem to have a way to ask him that question. Waiting........


Very funny Vinny

I think at this point if you like or dislike carr there isnt much for fuel that needs to be added to these arguments. We are beating dead horses.

Let's talk about his play at QB and if we believe he can be the QB of the future. We all know how things can be taken out of context in publications.

i'd have to say that the quote was taken out of context. i don't care how bad your team is, no player in their right mind would say, "they are going to win." man, seems like carr can't even fart without coming off like he's trying to lose, or losing in some nature. pathetic. jmo.

David Carr: "Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays"

Fans: It's obvious the guy isn't focused on the next game. He's thinking about stuffing his face with holiday hams and buying expensive gifts with his 60 million dollar contract. He's already looking ahead to the offseason. Not a leader.

Default Re: WTF? Carr quote...

Still only two members who have erroneously commented without thinking of the context, yet there are more Carr fans perpetuating that notion on this thread. Very odd set of fans we have here, I wonder if they will stick around after the Cap man comes a calling for Carr.
