Default How about talking with the Bears about Carr?

I know the media opinion is that David Carr has very little trade value, but I think it's pretty clear that he would be an upgrade for the Chicago Bears. Carr is at least an accurate passer on short to most intermediate routes, which Grossman is pretty erratic with. I also think some teams might not really grasp how much Carr sucks. Decent QB rating, offensive line being blamed etc... Carr and some kind of draft pick for Thomas Jones would almost seem doable with Benson coming on so strong. I don't really know if Jones fits the "Denver system" (if Ron Dayne fits it, i figure any back in the league fits it), or how much the Bears really believe in Grossman. I would think they would be one of the teams Smith floats the idea out there to, if we are looking to part ways with Carr.

Hahaha. Can you imagine David Carr making some of the passes that Grossman made today? He simply can't do it and the rest of the NFL knows it.

Why would the Bears trade for another QB who runs hot or cold at a whim?

Well, I think my hopes were dashed by the Bears pulling that game out.

Thumbs down Re: How about talking with the Bears about Carr?

When are the 10 babies here that hold a blanket like Linus, somehow have the ability to get internet access, and a mommy that doesn't supervise their online activities.. stop making crappy threads about David Carr being the problem as their sole obsession?

When is it going to end? How about seeing the big picture, understanding football being this concept called a "team sport" and quit spamming this board with "It's all Carr's fault and we deserve a Super Bowl Ring" whining type of garbage?

When are you 10 posters going to mature enough to see that it is more than Carr? When? You won't. This is why you deserve another year of Carr.

I hope he gets a pay raise and you draft a punter in the 1st round.

Another boo-hoo for Carr.

No team deserves another year of Carr... well... maybe Detroit.... or Oakland.

When is it going to end?
It ends when Carr gets booted from Houston, which will be sooner than later.

Carr was our biggest problem. No more excuses.

When Sage stepped in during the Titans game and threw for 3 TDs in just over a QTR of play with the SAME horrible O-line that you Carr apologists cry about, that revealed what we all have known for quite some time...it's time for Davey to go.

I've had to refrain from posting in this forum lest I express my opinion of the "trade Carr to" or "get QB x from team x" threads.

Carr's not going any where, no one wants him, and we're not going to give up picks or $ for another mediocre QB (except maybe for QB 2).

I would think Carr could easily find a team that will grab him, if we let him go. I dont see anyone really putting anything of value out there for him though. Either way I think Carr will be here next year in open competition with Sage and whomever else (rookie or vet) is brought in. Unfortunate for most is that Carr will likely win that competition.

I watched Bears yesterday, with exception of a few defensive guys, we have better on our offense then they do. Think we trade elsewhere IF WE DO TRADE

I think Carr will be our starting QB next season. How long he stays the starting QB will really be up to him.
