    carr continues to prove that he is an NFL quarterback and has tremendous passing talent. 17-23 for 140 yards and upping his overall completion percentage to 69.4%, which leads the nfl.

    look at the o-line we have. not even peyton manning could post numbers like this even without our line...

    i saw give carr another year or two to show us what he has and what he is really worth. if we let him go, i guarentee that when he succeeds with a real line every person on this board will proclaim that they loved carr and he got a bum rap and we should have kept him...

    Even I could complete some passes when I never attempt one farther than 3 yards in front of me.

    Lets see something other than the dink and dunk, and then I'll be impressed.

    The way Carr is passing..........I could complete 65% of my passes. Stop clicking on NFL.com and pulling up comp %. He throws 5 yard passes that defenses allow him to have. Its like playing pass and catch with my 5 year old nephew in the backyard. He is a #1 ovrl pick thats being paid 7 mil a year to be a difference maker and win games.....Not to be a QB that is content with a dump off of a 4 yard gain when you need ten..........sorry.

    More like he opened the 23rd of a 24 pack - are you whack? You call dumping it off everytime without looking down field a good passing game?

    Vince had a lot more yardage on just a few more throws and scoreboard to boot.

    Yes - you need to dump Carr and start over - he's done except with taking your money for three more years...

    This is also a line that has been flown around here like a kite on labor day.

    I would love to see Peyton Manning behind this line..........honestly

    Yeah! I can almost say that's almost as played out as QUOTE=Carr Bomb;533826 The way Carr is passing..........I could complete 65% of my passes. Stop clicking on NFL.com and pulling up comp %. He throws 5 yard passes that defenses allow him to have. Its like playing pass and catch with my 5 year old nephew in the backyard.

    69.4% is a cheap stat for 1 to 7 yd dump off passes. Carr no longer has the ability, if he ever had it, to be a franchise qb in the NFL. CFL maybe, but not the NFL.

    Nice rebuttal there PAL

    how about this..........

    Do you see how I can also gave no constructive response and then just post what you just typed.........again for those that didn't catch it

    nice argument, but you still didn't offer any argument how I was wrong........maybe the truth hurts..........hmm, I felt the same sting for 4 1/2 years

    Ok here's a better rebuttal;Once you have signed your pro contract to the 33rd pro NFL expansion team,in your 5th year you throw for 69% avg in week 14, I will gladly give you your trade papers for the team of your choice. How's that work for ya? I simply commented that the whole "I could pass for 69.4%" is about as played out as "not even Peyton Manning could do that behind this line." I for one am sure that I could not get that completion % behind any line period, but I am not a professional athlete and am not claiming to be one.

    First of all we're not the 33rd pro NFL expansion team, because there hasn't been 33 expansion teams.

    Second I would gladly throw that high of a comp% especially when opponents are saying stuff like this "He throws 6- or 7-yard passes and completes a lot of them, but nothing to really stretch the defense. Nothing that will really hurt you." Carr entered the game leading the NFL with a 69.1 percent completion rate.

    3rd. on the high percentage thing........its again not that hard to complete passes like that when teams allow you too......its called soft yards.....teams give you one thing and take away another.......teams give us that crap.

    I know there are 32 current teams, David Carr being drafted to #32 Houston Texans. Soooooo....when you sign your pro contract with #33,see previous post.Second; You did not say you would gladly throw. You said "I could throw for"

    3rd Just because he has a good completion % doesn't mean I think he's a great QB. It just so happens that he has beat 31 other starting Qb's in this one respect. Big deal! You think he would'nt want to trade it for say Leading the league in TD passes?
