Default HPF article on Carr.

Here's a pretty decent, objective read on DC and the Texans situation. I didn't see it on here, so I added it.

Thanks for the link Doc.

He pretty much lays out the predicament the Texans are facing with everything hinging on the Carr situation. It's too bad it all has to come down to this, but I think it would be better for Carr to go than stay. Probably better for him to get a fresh start somewhere else, and better for us to start fresh with someone else too. I just hope they can get good value (what value is left) for him in return. Draft pick(s) would be good. JMHO!

Nice article. A few guesses and observations...

Plummer loves Kubiak, Shanahan the younger as QB coach not withstanding. Shanny and Plummer will speak the same Denver language, and Kubiak will be doing the heavy lifting with the technique stuff.

Kubiak will dump Carr in a heartbeat if he things he can better deal at a okay price. They will be relentless all over the team to try to better deal it, to get their kinda guys.

I wish Mr. McNair hadn't commented on the situation other than the blanket statement that the team is looking to improve at all positions. Why trade with the Texans if you think we are going to just chuck him anyways? Letting him swing in the wind a bit also undercuts him if you want him to stay.

This is a totally messed up situation, and no matter the QB they won't be VY. Plummer was in the Elway shadow, but at least Elway was out of the league and you weren't facing him twice a year.

I think Carr will be back in 2007, along with a new face or two at QB. He'll have to compete for the job in training camp, but could win out the starting job anyway.

I think our options are limited, and it's a buyer's market right now. Cutting off the nose to spite the face is never good policy, regardless if the natives are restless.

That is exactly what I was thinking. It doesn't do the Carr situation ANY good to be talking like that. You damage your leverage in trying to trade him away and get something valuable in return and it hits the team players the wrong way if you plan to keep him because now the front office has lost confidence him, this may trickle down to the players. That is just a bad, bad move by the GM and owner. You never should talk down on something you are thinking of getting rid of. This is just as bad as saying we are going to take Williams with the first pick days in advance without letting the pressure fully materialize amongst all the other owners before draft time. Just stupid. Has anyone in the front office not played poker or had a job in retail????

DB, you hit the bullseye on this one!

I don't think Carr is going anywhere for financial reasons (dead cap money, an established vet will be moderately expensive, etc.). What this does do is it publicly puts Carr on the hot seat with no special treatment. Everyone knows it now, everyone knows what to expect, which are wins, and there are no more excuses.

Besides, the goal next year is to get to 10 wins and I don't think the Texans have to go crazy at the QB position to get there next year.

Maybe you should look at it from a different perspective. If everyone sees the elephant in the room and no one admits it, then what does that breed in the organization?

This could actually boost morale in the organization, because like it or not, Carr was getting special treatment that no one else was getting.

As for selling Carr in a trade, no one is really going to buy off on him anyway. He is played 5 years in the league and Charlie Casserly isn't a GM in the NFL to pull off that type of Buchannon type trade. It doesn't matter what they say, everybody already knows about Carr! Besides, they probably shopped him anyway before McNair went public on his comments.

So if Kubiak dumps Carr, brings in Plummer, Plummer plays worse than Carr, should/will Kubiak get fired?

McNair pulled a Dixie Chicks London routine, appeasing the audience, and you know how much trouble that caused them.

What flavor is the kool-aid this year? I'm snapping back into reality and just hoping for .500. Hard to go from crawling to running even in the "Parity Era". I hope we walk in '07 and start runnig in '08. If we don't seriously get better up front and/or get one hellacious RB, we can expect the same old song and sack dance(would it be bad if he came up with one?) from Carr. The man needs some pro bowl caliber help or a fresh start somewhere else. He's shown that he's more like Trent Dilfer than Joe Montana. He's not gonna just "will" his team to victory. He's a game manager trying not to screw it up rather than a field general putting the screws to the other team.

Bad thing about this problem is that there are no real outstanding QB in the the draft. Next year will be a better year for QB's. the FA market is about the same no real oustanding QB's available. I know most Texans fans don't want him back but I think he will be back and if the coaches are smart they will not name a starting QB until the first game of the season which gives the QB's all training camp and preseason to decide who has won the starters position. IMHO(I was kind of dizzy when I wrote this)

I think Russell is one of the best prospects in years. I would take him hands down. There are also SEVERAL very good prospects in the 2-3 round range. I'm going out on a limb here, but I think the majority of great QB's in league history have come from that area. Say, late 1st round to early 4th round.

Russell certainly has all the tools but was just to up or down during the season. Quinn is just avg at best and the rest of the group are pretty much projects. I do agree with you the most of the great QB's have come from the late rounds. Marino, Brady, Montana just to name a few. Bradshaw also.

Yes, I agree. I mean, I agree if you were actually cutting off the nose. But wisdom from California is more relevant than that of some old English nuns.

The rug ties the room together.

And if your rug has been peed on by your ex-wife's dog, it doesn't matter how much you clean it, you still have a rug that was peed on by your ex-wife's dog.

It might be more about changing out the rug, then cutting something important like a major sensory organ.

Default Re: HPF article on Carr.

I wasn't at all troubled by McNair's comments. As another poster mentioned, there is an elephant in the room and the team might as well acknowledge it. In fact, it already did several weeks ago when Rick Smith said the team wasn't comfortable with or satisfied with Carr's play and that he was looking to bring in someone who could challenge and possibly unseat him at QB. Those comments from the GM are anything but a vote of confidence in Carr.

In addition, those who criticize McNair on this board don't know all the facts. For example, what if it's known by the team's management that Carr has lost the confidence of too many of his teammates, and/or the coaches, so he will not be coming back in any event--even if he has to be released? And to be somewhat more cynical, what if season ticket renewals are lagging, and/or a number of holders of luxury suites and sponsors are basically saying they cannot fathom another season with Carr? Maybe it's just me, but my impression is that the team has been more aggressive in its marketing campaign than in previous offseasons.

As far as McNair's comments damaging Carr's trade value, he doesn't HAVE much trade value. It's not like teams are going to be lining up to trade a high pick for David Carr and his ridiculous salary when there's a reasonably good chance the team will simply release him. If last year Culpepper only fetched a 2nd round pick and Harrington a 5th/6th round pick (depending on performance), that more or less sets the market value for Carr, with Carr being closer to the Harrington side of the spectrum.

Amen and amen to everything you said. This organization will walk before it runs. .500 might even be a bit ambitious. Without pro-bowl caliber help we might not win as many games as we did this last season. It doesn't matter who the QB is unless the Texans get some better than average o-line help, and a really explosive RB, this team is going nowhere. And I have to tell you folks, if you didn't like Carr, you won't like Plummer any better, unless upgrades are made at the two afore mentioned areas. And yes, Carr is no going to put the team on his back and snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat all by himself. He can manage a game as in a Trent Dilfer. As for any of the rookies coming out of the draft, I don't see any that are going to be any better than Carr has been. I hate to beat a dead horse even more, but if the Texans were wanting a difference making QB they should have taken one last year. But, That ship has sailed.

Your comments are perfectly sensible, but if all Carr is going to be is a Trent Dilfer-caliber QB, why are we paying him a Pro Bowler's salary? Sage may not be the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I'd be more than willing to give him a chance to be our game manager at his more reasonable salary. If Carr is not the answer, let's start looking for someone who is in the draft. I want a QB with whom the team can win a Super Bowl!

Bradshaw was 1st round. He might have been a 1st overall but I don't remember offhand.

We're paying him #1 overall $$ cuz that's where he was selected. He's not performing because the Capers regime coddled him and refused to upgrade our OL, he's been sacked a bazillion times, he's had more offensive coordinators than you've had girlfriends, and Kubiak sees/saw potential in Carr and thinks/thought he could make the difference in his career. Hindsight sees 20/20 even when it's fuzzy. IMHO, the Texans let Carr down more than Carr let the Texans down. He deserves a CMH for the abuse he's taken. And, hopefully, a fresh start with another team.

Despite the lack of appealing alternatives, many fans are hell-bent for Carr to go and damn the consequences. The franchise must cut their losses and move on, they would tell you. In a sense, I agree simply because I want the whole situation to go away and for Texan fans to be in full support of their team once again. But, to many fans, the quarterback will always be the lightning rod of criticism when the team doesn't win. As long as the team continues to lose, no quarterback will be satisfactory to them.
This has been false in Houston for the first 3 years. And on the 4th, the coaches caught the wrath that comes with losing. It wasn't the QB.
