Default Would a new QB really make a difference.

Would a new QB, Plummer, Quinn, Kolb etc be able to come in and make a difference if there are no significant changes made to our O-Line or any upgrades to our recieveing core WR, TE etc ? I mean sure Carr has had some bad years but is it all his fault ???

i think it would give us at least a new perspective. carr, while not the root of everything that has gone wrong with this franchise, surely has to carry some of the blame. i think the team would be good to get due compensation and cut ties. hopefully acquire plummer and at some point draft a QB to take over in a couple of years.

The Texans do not have the level of talent that would allow David Carr to succeed. Even his most diehard supporters agree with this point. If we are unable to field a consistent running game, a Pro Bowl offensive line, and a dominant defense, Carr will continue to struggle. It will probably be another two years before we can field that kind of team, too.

So adding a QB that can do more with less would definitely help this team, although it must be said that we probably won't find that QB in this year's FA market or draft.

That would be require a June Allison type answer.........it "Depends". Do we have a solid O-line, RB and scheme/game plan. If no, then no.

thats what i'm saying, so should we just stick with Carr for now and try to make other aspects of the team better for now, instead of wasting money on a FA QB who still wont succedd for another 2 years ???

I said it would be the same given that the assumption is that we have not increased the talent field anywhere on the offense.

I will tell you something that I'm 100% sure of .

There is only one way of finding out what a new QB can do . We already know what the old QB can do .

I think a new QB would make a big difference. Call me crazy, but I don't think our current line WANTS to block for David Carr, nor do they want him in Houston still. Our guys show much more heart when they're out there blocking for Sage.

The only o-lineman i've ever heard stick up for DC is Steve McKinney...that's it! I personally think Sage should start in 07 and Kubiak should look for a young QB to groom in 08.

A new QB would make a marginal difference at best. Until, the Texans fix their O-Line the poor offensive performances will continue. I know casual fans don't understand this, but it takes more than QB's, RB's, and WR's to have an effective offense.

For whatever reason, DC has the Texans' brass wrapped around his finger. EVERYTHING's always someone else's fault. It's never Carr's. I'm sick of it.

Never CARRS fault, than what the hell are we all talking about. Hmmm the media says its all carrs fault, the Fo is obviously looking around for a new QB, and all the fans. Come on now give me a break, saying its always some elses fault, if thats the case why dont we ever hear about how awful our O-Line is anymore ? Why dont people talk about it ?

because the o-line isn't the 'sexy' part of a football team people want to talk about. fans want playmakers. fans want explosion. but they don't realize that the o-line makes all that happen. Kubiak just said on NFL Network that it's "his job to make Carr better." That doesn't sound like a guy who's eager to get rid of him. I agree that our o-line needs serious help, but for some reason, Bob McNair's not willing to concentrate on that position.

yes i agree, but all i'm saying is that there is alot of pressure and blame on Carr, so i dont see how you can say, everyone else is getting blamed except him.

i'm just tired of seeing everyone holding carr's hand and listening to Kubiak say "aww...it's my fault he's not playing well." i'm not saying everyone else is getting blamed, i mean it seems to me like Carr always gets a free pass on his performance.

I think it's a matter of pride with Bob McNair. He just doesn't want to come out and admit that he made a mistake in 2002. agree??

actually i wont say he made a mistake UNTIL carr has a fair shot, i mean he came into a new team who had nothing to build on, was sacked a record amount of times in 02. Hasnt had the luxury of going to a team with a good foundation like a lot of QBs who are drafted. He has never REALLY had good protection. So in 5 years i'll let ya know whether or not i think McNair made a mistake or not.
