Default David Carr the best thing for the Texans?

this past week was satisfying beyond anyones wildest dreams & we have david carr to thank. all the negative pub, the unleashing of pent up anger & frustration released, don't we all feel a whole lot better now? thanks david

if not for David Carr the Texans would not have still been selecting 1st overall 5 years latter, hence no Mario Williams. thanks david

if not for David Carr Andre Johnson would have already been injured as teams looked for ways to knock him out of the game, as it was they were happy to leave him in double coverage with little consequence towards the outcome of the game. thanks david

if not for David Carr Matt Schaub would be the starting QB for the Atlanta Falcons. he would not be a Texan tearing holes in defenses like an opener on a can of tuna. thanks david

if not for David Carr the braintrust of Kubiak/Smith would not have focused extra emphasis on the offensive line to insure the QB is protected in a scheme that releases the ball in 1001, 1002, 1003, thanks david

so the next time y'all go bashing david carr stop yourself & think about how the Texans got to here & why? you'll be pleasently surprised

I don't care what anyone says. I still like David Carr. He's class act who became the gun-shy scapegoat for a lacklustre offensive line, a mediocre coach and a pathetic GM. Quit bashing the guy already he's moved on. BTW...how do you start a thread? I've been here for a year and still don't know how to start a thread.

Respect? For what? He got paid. That's all that matters to him, the money, but not gaining our respect. I doubt he gives a rat's behind what Houston fans think of him.

He took a lot from this team, too. If he can admit now that he didn't want to be here, then why sign an $8 million extension? He openly admits that he stopped having fun years ago. So it's not love of the game, not be a champion or lead a new franchise to a winning season. It's about the money.

It was never his fault that he failed. Never once did he accept full responsibility for his play. And guess what? It's now obvious that it wasn't the line's fault, either. So it's nobody's fault that he's the Happy Backup.

iiwii.

Respect is earned, IMO. As a human being, I afford him the respect that I give any good person.

But as a football player, we owe him nothing, the least of all our respect.

Respect David Carr??? Never. Stop blaming his shortcomings on the rest of the team. He had five years to show EVEN A FLASH of brilliance and he showed us NOTHING. Good riddance. Take your millions and get lost, Carr. Don't let the gates of Reliant Park hit you on the way out.

If anyone needs a primer on how David Carr can turn an EASY Texans first down into a six point score by the Raiders defense, click here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMd3FdudDH0

iiwii = it is what it is. In this case, Carr is who he is, and it's nobody's fault.

My 2c on Carr. He is exactly where he deserves to be. A backup. He played his way there. Every team in the NFL had a chance to sign him and make him a starter. None did so, so that shows you how the NFL percieves his talent. He wasn't THE problem with Houston, obviously. The defense has completely remade itself, particularly up front, and Green is a far better option than Carr had the last few years when he was REALLY bad. Carr is simply not a good quarterback though, and apparently there's not a team in the NFL that would argue.

IMO, I think Carr's problem is that under pressure, he just couldn't see the field and make a determination of what to do under pressure. In college, you play against comparative players on average, with the occasional exception regarding NFL caliber players. In the NFL, you're playing against the college's 'cream of the crop'. The level of play is stepped up dramatically, and the transition needed to make those judgment calls is ramped up dramatically. I don't think he had it in him to play at this level.

Again, all this is of my opinion...

I love the Texans. If David was not the fit, then he wasn't the fit. Do not ever attempt to make me look like the kind of person who would bail on my team because of one player. EVER.

Whatever, DB. I think you have been drinking in the anti-Carr sentiment a bit too much for your own good. I am not defending him in saying that he was a good player, but I am saying that he was a Texan, nonetheless. I don't think he was "doing it just for money", considering the whipping he took. Sure, last year could have been about money, but not the first few years. The fact is we DID have a dismal Offensive line, and he DID get his a** handed to him.

David Carr is the product of this franchise, just like the franchise was a product of him. We have moved on now, and that is what is important. You don't see me lurking around Carr threads defending him anymore (with this one being a rare exception).
