    Year 4/5 in the league, and the they are just now explaining the role of QB? Very Sad. Make sure they go over how to put on a uniform next. I truely hope Carr is worth all this and turns it all around.

    Is this a joke? It really can't be true, can it?

    It is right in the middle of the article after the quote from a fan. it goes like this,


    "Someone told me that David is the last to practice and the first to leave. That's an exaggeration, but it makes a point. In fact, Troy Aikman has been asked to spend some time with David this summer to attempt to explain the role of a QB."

    That is the highest paid player on the Texans. Pretty sad.

    That was my fault. I had accidentally linked McClain's most recent article about Warren Moon instead of Justice's blog.

    This is really nothing new. It's no secret that Carr is more passionate and concerned about family and faith than he is football. Many of us have been discussing this for 3 plus years. Part of me finds that to be a very admirable trait, as I myself put family before work. But, there is a fine balance for all of us. Some jobs require much more from us than others, and we all then have to decide whether the additional income is worth more of our time and energy. And, for the most part, we aren't talking anywhere near the money he makes. For many, it's not worth it. Unfortentely, David has a decision. He either needs to put football number 1 in his life, above all else, even family, or he needs to quit, and do something that fits in better with his lifestyle. What he really wants is to have his cake and eat it too. For four years, this organization has coddled him, and acquiesced to his every whim, and it shows in his play. David, either get 100% dediciated, or get out. Maybe this explains why so many of the best QB's were/are bachelors and/or party boys with no children, who usually didn't show up in church on Sunday morning?

    At least Aikman looks like the right man for the job.

    Justice has on the "Vince"-goggles like some people on this board. Anything Justice says, I vow to ignore. I believe what I'll see with my eyes, not what I read by some slanted beat writer. If Carr can't do it this year without adequate protection, a relatively decent scheme, then I'll be all in support of removing Carr from the QB helm in Houston. But hey, don't ride someone out of town because he can't succeed without anything to help him.

    On the note of Troy Ainkman helping Carr, I can't say that I wouldn't turn down his offer, if this whole thing is true. Ainkman was just solid. Everybody has a problem with Carr not acting like a leader, well I have a problem with McNair not acting like an owner, Capers not acting like a coach, and a defense not acting like a defense.

    It's not that Aikman is being asked here to help Carr with his mechanics. His role would be to "attempt to explain the role of a QB". Why doesn't Carr already know that?

    Maybe the fact that David is the last on the field and the first off goes a long way to show the commitment the team has given to him. They promised him help up front and he got none. He was probably worried he'd get sacked too many times in practice.

    Do you want to guess how many times David Carr has been sacked in practice?

    funny commercial, but kinda embarassing also.

    Coaching doesn't always have to be about mechanics.

    People wonder why Carr isn't the firey guy but to me, it seems the WHOLE team took the Capers philosophy (emotionally)
