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.
I liked all of your comments, except that one!

No kidding around here:

I think you have to ask the question, Does a team play better when they have fan support?

'I' think the answer is yes. I think that your chances of winning increase when you score and the house is behind you. I think you have a better chance of winning when the house is making noise during the snap count.

So on that account the fans are a football decision. The ticket buying fan anyway ( at least the ones that can afford it ).

Great information, thanks.

I think Staubach should have an asterisk by his name, though, because while he was a 10th round pick, he was picked that low because had to serve 4 years in the U.S. Navy. If he hadn't gone to a military academy he would have undoubtedly been drafted in the 1st round.

David Carr will not be a 'backup' for the Texans next year at his salary. Is he or is he not our starting QB?? THAT is the question that Kubes will be asking and answreing. If he is, he starts. If he is not, he's cut or traded. Those are really the only logical options.

Seriously, DC will not be a backup here. That makes no sense. If #8 from Fresno State returns, he's starting...

(At which point, I will inject heroin into the side of my eyeball and inhale through my nose a large bowl of cayenne pepper!)

What makes it so sad is I've seen everyone of these guys play. One of the better QB's not in HOF was Dr. Frank Ryan from Rice and played for Browns.

And look who drafted him.

The Steelers RELEASED him before he ever played a game for them. He was playing semi-pro ball until the Colts picked him up.

yeah, NFL Films has a nice 30 minute film on him.

He gets no respect... last Brown to ever win a Championship. But he sits behind Kosar and Sipe in the QB logs. He's also Condi's favourite player.
