Default I'm a little sad, but know it's for the best

I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way, but today, I am a little sad.

I remember watching the 02 draft, and being ecstatic, thinking David was the person who was going to take us where we needed to be. I thought he had all the physical tools, the mental ones as well. Plus, I thought he'd be a very good face for our new team.

I think it's best for him to go, but it still doesn't mean I am not disappointed to see him leave, and I still wish he could have carried us.

David is one heck of a young man. He represents everything I try and teach my students to be on a regular basis. I wish him nothing but the best, and I know he will be successful wherever he goes.

Thanks for everything David! I only hope we are respectful to him when he plays in Reliant next time.


WELCOME MATT SCHAUB!

Remember that opening game against Dallas in 2002? After the game, the way Carr had played, and the emotion... I can't lie, as much as I want to move on and give Schaub a shot... I'll miss Carr.

Ditto again... and best of luck wherever he ends up.

Default Re: I'm a little sad, but know it's for the best

I can't agree more with Ash. David came into a situation and never once made the team or the city look bad.

David was the face to this franchise for 5 years and spent most of that on his back. Were there times that David din't play up to the level of the #1 overal pick, yes. But he also left everything on the field.

I'm also alittle sad to this see that day come. I knew it was for the best of this franchise but it is still alittle sad.

I wish David good luck and I hope he turns into a pro bowl qb where ever he goes. That being said...

Welcome to Houston Matt Schaub!!

Default Re: I'm a little sad, but know it's for the best

I agree, I always really rooted for David. All the beatings he's taken and the toughness he showed, I really liked that. Plus the Dave-haters were (are) always so mean spirited and classless towards David and his family (beer incident against Cleveland, 3/4 of the thinds said on this board). And I wanted him to shut them up so badly. It is sad he will not be able to make that happen.

Wherever Dave goes, I wish him and his family nothing but the absolute best that life has to offer, and I hope he can make good on all his potential.

Default Mr. Carr

I would like to thank Mr. Carr for fighting for our team all of these years and for being a class guy.

I know there have been many negative fans, but I hope Mr. Carr knows that there are many of us who respect him and wish him the very best.

While I am glad the Texans are going in a new direction, I just can't forget him leading us to a 19-10 win over the Cowboys to start off the '02 season. Never before in my life had I been so happy. For the longest time, whenever I thought "Texans", I thought "Carr". I just hope for the best for him if he ends up somewhere else.

I've been a Carr supporter around here but I know it is time to bring in a guy that doesn't have the history Carr has here.

Thanks for the memories David, you are a great guy, awesome competitor and a tough son of a gun. Farewell.

I really hope to see the Texans beat him down in the playoffs in the near future.

I'm not sad. I wish David Carr the best with his future team, but I can't be anything but cautiously optimistic about our future.

I'm not one to live the past, though. Onward, upward, and back into the trees!

I will proudly sport my Carr jersy the entire year next year. One last farewell to a person who represented the Texans and Houston very well. He was never able to completely put it together on the field but he never trashed the organization or any of the players. David as fans we appreciate you helping us get the organization started and we hope to meet you in the Superbowl.
As for the next year my Ryans jersey will be waiting its turn.

Carr's a class act that came into a tough situation and never could overcome it.

I hope that his family and friends check in every now and then. I'd like to know how he's coming along in the next town.

Best of luck.

The sadness is that we did not do this earlier - 2002 (Peppers) or 2006 (not extend) would have been great. Carr's best days are behind him. The Texans best days are in front of them.

Today is a great day to be a Texan.

When he is traded it will be interesting to see how he reacts. If he acts as classy as he has bene while here, I salute him. If he takes the opportunity to bash the franchise shame on him. ~shakes finger disapprovingly~

Carr's legacy will be one that the Texans failed him, not that he failed the Texans.

I am of the opinion that it was time for a change for both David and the Texans in order for all to grow. The class he showed by taking the high road and not getting caught up in all the negative publicity he has endured throughout the past couple years make me respect him tremendously as a person. I do hope that he goes to a team and succeeds with a fresh start.
