Default Coaches to Blame or Carr?

I'm not saying i think carr is to blame nor am i saying the coaches are. I just read this article on nfl.com and i thought it was very interesting since, everyone went to jumping on the coaches after our three game losing streak.

Quote:
David Carr's season has eerily mirrored the career of actor/musician Corey Feldman. With an early career that featured such hits at "Goonies," "Gremlins" and "Stand By Me," Feldman was a hot commodity in Hollywood. Early in this season, Carr finally started looking like an overall No. 1 pick and Houston, at 4-3, was the trendy AFC sleeper pick. Recently though, Carr's slide has been as steep as Feldman's (see: "South Beach Academy"). With large drop-offs in most statistical categories, Carr is easiest to blame for the Texans' three-game losing streak. In those three games, however, Carr has been sacked 11 times, and his main target, Andre Johnson, has zero touchdowns. If they want to stay alive in the AFC South and vie for a wild-card spot, the Texans must revive a 23rd-ranked rushing attack and take some weight off of Carr's shoulders.
These are the stats that go along with this article:

Carr's 2004 -- First 7 GMs (4-3) -- Last 3 GMs (0-3)
Comp % -- --- -- 66.0 -- --- -- 52.8
QB Rating -- --- -- 99.7 -- --- -- 61.7
TD/INT -- --- -- 9/5 -- --- -- 1/3

i think teams have just figured us out, we never adjust and it seems we try the same stuff over and over, its easy to see if ya look at films of our past games ! We just need to be more creative in the play calling !

Let's hope Carr picks it up in the last six.

Whoever wrote that article and compared Carr to Feldman is a . Feldman is more comparable to Ryan Leaf.

That article is so funny, Carr isn't the one to blame. Has anyone noticed that when we were winning those games D.D. played a limited role and we used Wells more. Then recently in the games we lost thats when D.D's injury has supposely complety healed and he has taken a bigger role in our offense and has taken pretty much all of the carries. Do you see how after he said all those things about Carr, he says if the Texans want to be successfull the texans need to improve their rushing attack. Does the guy want Carr to start running around throwing blocks all over the feild. The only reasoning I can come up with for this aticle is that the national media likes to tear down athletes who are the face of a struggling team, especially if they are a #1 ovrl. pick qb. It's a win win situation for them. Lets say the player continues to struggle, then its "I told you so, hes a bust, this whole organization is in shambles" and with hindsight they start mentioning all the great players drafted after him. Now if the player succeeds and makes them shut their damn mouths (ala Drew Brees) it turns into a great story for them,"oh what great adversity this player has overcome." etc. etc. etc. and everone jumps on their bandwagon. while I just sit back and laugh remebering all of the ridicoulus things that were said or written like the peice above.

Carr is stll doing good but other teams need to be kept guessing about the playcall and mix up the running and passing game more.
