Default McNair makes another strange comment...

On Fox Sports Extra last night McNair was questioned about Carr's future. He answered by saying that they needed someone to replace Carr and "there are 20 quarterbacks in the league that aren't as good as David Carr." Does this include backup and practice squad guys? If he is referring to starting NFL quarterbacks he is obviously completely off his rocker.

I saw a reference to that comment while I was surfing the net. My reaction was the same as yours--it's really not hard to find 20 starting QB's who are better than David.

Here is an off-the-cuff list, not necessarily in order of their relative status:

P. Manning
Brady
Brees
Palmer
McNair
Favre
Rivers
Hasselbeck
Garcia
Romo
Bulger
Pennington
Young
Leinert
Green
Cutler
Kitna
Losman
Vick
Roethlisberger

I dunno, but we can only hope that the ole man is building Carr up to unload
him, becasue if his remark was sincere, well that's probably not a good thing.

Here is an off-the-cuff list, not necessarily in order of their relative status:

P. Manning
Brady
Brees
Palmer
McNair
Favre Played at the same level pretty much IMO.
Rivers
Hasselbeck
Garcia
Romo
Bulger
Pennington - his team is better, but Carr is a better QB.
Young - wow. I'll wait a few to call a rookie QB better.
Leinert - - wow. I'll wait a few to call a rookie QB better.
Green
Cutler - ha, you jest?
Kitna - umm...??
Losman - maybe if he only plays against Faggins and the Texans every week.
Vick
Roethlisberger - I don't know what happened this year, but Carr played better.
my opinions ^^^

Yeah, I like him a lot too. I hope McNair was just posturing. If Kubiak and Smith conclude that Carr is not the guy for the team, I have little doubt McNair will let them get rid of Carr.

Hi:

Completely disagree with you about Favre. Even at his advanced age, Favre is far better than Carr (all this is my opinion, of course).

Pennington has a weak arm, but is a much smarter QB who knows how to make plays. Carr has a strong arm and is a great athlete, but has no pocket presence and makes horrible decisions for a 5th year pro.
Which brings me to my next point...

Yes, Young and Leinert are rookies, but have already shown me more than Carr ever has. Leinert with his smarts and pocket presence (behind a line that is unquestionably worse than ours, I might add), and Young with his leadership and playmaking ability.

I also think Cutler is already better than Carr.

Did you see Kitna play yesterday? He carved up Dallas's defense with his sorry cast of characters, which David did not even come close to doing.

If Losman torched Houston, why couldn't Carr do that to Cleveland--an injury riddled team that plays like garbage?

Big Ben has had an off-year, perhaps because of his motorcycle injuries, but he is a Super Bowl champion and played great his first 2 years. If there were no salary cap ramifications and the Steelers were willing to trade Ben for David straight up, you don't think the Texans would take that deal in a heartbeat?

Here is an off-the-cuff list, not necessarily in order of their relative status:

P. Manning Would Love to Have him...
Brady Would Love to Have him...
Brees Would Love to Have him...
Palmer Would Love to Have him...
McNair Has had worse games than Carr, how is he better?
Favre You have to be kidding
Rivers Would Love to Have him...
Hasselbeck Would Love to Have him...
Garcia 1 year wonder boy at best.
Romo LOL, too funny. No way Jose.
Bulger OMG, he is on his way to the pro bowl, right? Get real
Pennington In no way is this guy better. He does have a better team and OL
Young Can't compare 1 year wonder boy yet
Leinert Can't compare 1 year wonder boy yet
Green Can't comment he was out too long, but they have a running game
Cutler Can't compare a 1 year wonder boy yet
Kitna This guy is bottom meat, please dont even compare him to Carr
Losman Won't last much longer in the NFL. Way too inconsistent to be compared
Vick Isn't a QB, a good running back that goes under center at best
Roethlisberger Oh please, his worst season ever and has a great team around him


Those are my comments about each.

No, I'm pretty sure that's you.

The only thing you ever have to say is that David and the franchise SUCKS. Did you graduate from HS? Come up with a legitimate argument for once please.

In my opinion ... here's the teams that have a worse QB situation than us .


Minnesota
Chicago
Tampa
Cleveland
Oakland
Washington
Carolina
Green Bay

I'm thinking they do not pay as much for their QB .

Good post. Your point about factoring in QB compensation is very well taken. The only minor quibble I might have is that Kitna looked great yesterday against Dallas quarterbacking a team worse than ours. Carr looked lousy against Dallas. I also recall that Kitna did a decent job in Cincinnati before giving way to Palmer, the team's golden child. At this point in time for me, decent at low cost >>> mediocre at high cost, IMHO.

I took Detroit off after I looked at their team passing yards . Their better right now .

I'd have to disagree with you on Carolina, Green Bay, and Washington. Carolina has Jake Delhomme who is a better QB than Carr is. Washington has had Jason Campbell on the bench for a few years now and should start next season as the #1 QB. And Green Bay has Brett Favre who is a better QB than Carr even if he's a decade older. They also have Aaron Rodgers waiting in the wings.
