    I'm assuming the original thread was closed because some of the branches it spawned was getting out of hand.... I feel the discussion I was having with a couple of participants.... gpshafer, & Texan279 & even infantrycak was still civil, and unresolved.... & I believe they have mistaken what I was saying, & I'd like to clarify.....

    You got me twisted..... I've never said that David has had enough time, or that David can't be a starter in the NFL. as a matter of fact, my first post in that thread:

    So...... I'm not saying that Sage should replace Carr in our next preseason game, and I'm not saying that Sage should start over Carr in the regular season.

    Now infantrycak...... just because I bring up the Oakland controversies, and I say there are similarities, that doesn't mean I believe the situations are identical. But I think they are similar enough to be able to compare the two. Just because you don't think so, is no reason to insult my intelligence.

    Brooks played poorly..... Andrew played better....... same situation as Carr & Sage....... but I don't believe Andrew should replace Brooks as the teams starter, for the same reason I don't believe Sage ought to replace Carr. It's the preseason.

    I ask you...... and anyone else who wants to participate..... do you think Andrew should start over Brooks?? & if you do, why is that situation so different from ours.

    I'll chime in on this. I don't think Carr's situation is the same as Brooks' situation. Brooks played poorly, Carr did not. Carr and Sage both had good games last Saturday, I do not think Sage outplayed Carr.

    What are you saying? And why does it deserve another thread?

    Carr is the same as Brooks, but Brooks is better.........Okay! Can we close this non sense now too.:tease:

    A lot of you need to stop cause Carr is going to go off this year. So get in all the Brooks is better then Carr stuff and the he cant do this, cant do that, cause your going to be proven wrong.

    You only have a couple more weeks to tell us how bad he is, so get it all in while you can.

    What the heck do you think was insulting this time?

    What same situation? Brooks sucked a donkey appendage. Walters just pet the donkey in a fond fashion. They both had QB ratings under 51. Folks can say Sage outperformed Carr if they want. IMO 5 passing plays is ridiculous to draw that conclusion on especially when Carr's QB rating was actually above Sage's. Sage had a whopping 4.3 ypa--Carr's was better but not by much. They both played OK.

    IMO Oakland was stupid for not taking Cutler or Leinart. Brooks does nothing for me--spare me your stat comparison. Haven't seen enough of Walters to conclude he is the man--maybe so, but a 50.1 QB outing isn't going to get me to annoint him king anymore than a 66.4 will for Sage.

    Man, you just keep opening the door right into your nose, Thunderkyss.

    You say I got you "wrong" then you actually, with your own typing, play the "Brooks was like Carr and Sage was like Andrew" card.

    Carr played so much better than what he's getting credit for. As far as the "locking onto a guy" argument...how do you see his EYES, Thunderkyss? His head might be in one direction, but is it possible for a QB to look out of the corner of his eyes? Well, it's not possible for Sage to do so if we view his TD run when Walter was streaking wide open across the middle and could have been thrown the ball with NO PRESSURE on Sage when he was wide open. Carr runs that into the end zone in the same situation, and he gets peppered with "Why didn't he see Walter?" comments. Bank on it.

    And if I recall, I don't think this board allows posters to start threads "calling out" other posters, putting posters' screen name(s) in the thread title--Reminded me of the old days when the message board was like the old west, where it was anarchy around here...thanks for the flashback. Can't say I can locate it in the rules, but always thought it was at least a courtesy thing. Not that I shy away from the debate. Cuz here I am. But you can private message me about this if you want. I'm cool with the debate.

    I think the reason the thread was closed was because it had looped over and over like a bad disco song at the roller skating rink....

    ...kinda' like it is right now.

    I was gonna say something about that but I do not know the exact rules, I figured the title should have been changed or he sould have sent it to you via PM instead of trying to call you out in front of the whole board.

    Title fixed.

    Everyone try to keep the punches above the belt, even if they are the same old tired ineffectual punches which have been thrown before.

    Sage did not start out on a Inaugural Team like David did in his career, if that does not deserve some credit, than what does, Sage has had only 2 starts since the skins, & dolphins, so people let's give David his full chance already that he deserves, this is his team not Sage's get over it already, David is the one who has been running for his life with this team, while Sage has been running from team to team.....David deserves this year, under this new coach and this system, to prove himself to you fans, that do not believe in him....PLEASE BE TRUE TEXANS FANS THAT MOST OF YOU ARE AND GIVE HIM THE SUPPORT HE NEEDS......TO BE A WINNER :yahoo:

    carr played decent in game one nothing too special he could have been picked twice but he made sum good decisions to take off and run a couple of times and made sum plays with his feet. sage looked pretty decent in the back up role. carr without a doubt is the starter but unlike yrs past when capers staff treated carr like a baby and would never pull him from a game so not to hurt his feeling, i think kubiak will definately take carr out if he doesnt perform well. david carr hasnt earned the right to go out there every series if he is not getting the job done. hopefully we wont have to see alot of sage this yr but if necessary i know kubiak will pull the hook

    This is part of the reason I thought this discussion should be carried on. I'm on the same side of the argument as all of you..... Carr should start...Sage shouldn't move up the depth chart. But I criticize Carr, and all of a sudden I'm bashing him?? My history on David Carr threads withstanding, I'm not the only one who thinks he looked shakey at best. For whatever reason.

    R you saying you're not calling me silly?? are you saying that was not a shot at me??


    how many passes did Brooks throw?? yet it appears you've drawn a conclusion about that similar situation
    Yeah, Stats only matter when David's are better.

    No, I wouldn't say you're wrong about that........ wait a minute, I didn't say you were wrong about that.
    You're right, I don't know what those guys are talking about....... looking off the safety..... nonsense.....
    Hey, David's got his critics...... always will. But let me ask you this. If a 4 year Veteran starter, and a 5 year backup are playing at the same level, do you not believe that Starter will recieve some criticism??

    And I'm not saying that..... you are. If David makes X mistake he gets criticized...... but if Sage makes X mistake no one says a word.

    I officially withdraw from this debate.....

    You are absolutely right....... and I may have taken things a little too personal.

    Didn't Walter throw like 2 interceptions? Brookes couldn't hit the ground with the ball if he was standing on a roof. Let's see...compare 2 picks with incompletions...hmmm... they both suck!:challenge

    "Walters just pet the donkey in a fond fashion". That's forkin hilarious!
