Of course we should keep him. Given that the better free agent opportunities are evaporating, I am glad to see the decision to release Carr becoming incrementally more difficult.

Hurt ? ....No...

The Texans don't want Carr...It's not too hard to see...

They aren't going to cut him because someone will atleast give a 7th for him...

Carr will be gone even if that's all they'd get...

...this should be a no brainer.

Looking at the remaining free agent starting Qbs i'm not excited. There is a few Qb's we could look at as a project type.

Those in favor of cutting him are you really that sold on the idea of Rosenfels being your starter with what Quinton Porter your back up? If we draft a QB the only way i hope he sees any playing time is either due to injury or getting play time in a blowout win

You are acting like we'd be losing a lot by Starting Rosenfels and cutting David...

What has David done that's so irreplaceable ? I know he set the bar high with his 11 tds[], but I'm sure we can find someone to hand the ball off and fumble....

Yes. It's very hard to imagine anybody that could be more pathetically inept than Carr.

ehhhh. . it's the typical offseason where it's mostly pro-Carr. If this poll were to take place during actual football season, the results would be vastly different.

Where has Carr shown that he is so much better than Rosebnfels..lol. I voted cut just for the sanity of the organization and so we can have damage control while moving forward. I think the talks so far have taken us to the edge of a cliff we can't get off.

Default Re: If they are unable to trade Carr . . .

Some of you people crack me up. You're thinking with your emotions, rather than what's best for the organization.

I still believe in Carr, but I'm also smart enough to be able to read the writing on the wall. It's my opinion that Carr will be traded on draft day & that it will be to Oakland for a 3rd round pick.

However, to answer the original question in this thread, if we are unable to trade Carr, then we keep him. We're going to take a big hit from his bonus, whether we trade him, cut him, or keep him, anyway. We can always let him go at the end of the year, next year. But, the main reason for keeping him is, some team is most likely going to have their starting QB go down during the season. That team would be more willing to part with a 3rd, or possibly a 2nd round pick, if they're in the middle of a playoff run.

So, if you can, try & take the emotional part out of your decisions. It'll help you see more clearly.

All things considered, that's a little easier said than done.

I want carr gone more than many, but if we can't trade him this year, I say keep him around and let him compete. If Sage gets hurt, I'm not comfortable starting Van Pelt

IMO, it's beyond that. If they can't trade David, he'll be cut.
