    Good to hear from the man who more than anyone else is going to decide what kind of a team we are.

    Uh, it is nice to learn that God is a Texans fan, I suppose. Let me adjourn whilst I read the Book of Job. :cool:

    I thought all year last year that the biggest problem with Carr is that he has no one with the capability to take his job. This offseason he has been more active and vocal because he feels that Vince Young heat on his heel. If they draft Bush, and Steve McNair is a free agent they should throw that money at him. If he were here then Carr would finnaly have fear of loosing that spot. Too many people kissing his butt for too long. It is funny that it has taken him 4 years to figure it out, yea right, its all about that heat he did not just figure it out. Look at what it did for Drew out in Sand Diago. They brought in Rivers and Breese made the pro-bowl. It is funnay what athletes do when there is competition. If they have Sage as a back up, Kubiak will see the same Carr we all saw last year.

    You don't always need competition to succeed in this league. I'm not sure how much competition Jake Plummer had these last two years in Denver. It's amazing what a little coaching can do to a player. I disagree that Carr will be the same QB from last year without a backup to push him. I remember watching the Rams game last year and Carr impressed the hell outta me that game. He had a great game, not just a great first half. He showed me what he can do when he actually has some time to pass. Now with Andre Johnson, Eric Moulds, Reggie Bush (presumably), Kevin Walter, and Jeb Putzier and a better offensive line (Flanagan and we've added some depth to the line through FA), I think David Carr will exceed most of the expectations we have of him considering what he's been through.

    Carr does concede that Southern California running back Reggie Bush, a strong candidate to be Houston's top choice, would give the Texans a dynamic, immediate boost with his potential to create mismatches.

    "I don't know what we're going to do with the pick, but I don't know how a guy like Reggie Bush can't help you," Carr says. "I haven't ever seen a player who turns a corner like Reggie Bush does."

    ARRRGGGHHHHH! Dude be a leader. Say it does not matter who we bring in because we extended you, got an offensive minded coach and brought in quality need players on Offense. What a joke.

    Sounds as if Carr is putting in the effort we knew Kubiak would require of him.

    That was one of the main faults of Capers: No credibility.

    Now there's a proven winner at the wheel, and a former QB at that, and the atmosphere of this team and its locker room is about to get healthier.

    That's weak. We get it already. You have a man crush on Williams. Give it up already. :brickwall

    OK, that is a little picky. What he said as it relates to Bush is just an accurate statement as it would relate to any team. You don't know what the reporter cut out of the sentence or what specific question Carr was asked. Maybe he said that exact thing you said he should have said to the reporter and it wasn't a part of the article.

    To me, I didn't find that statement to be particularly eyebrow raising and generally I don't care for parsing athletes sentences trying to discern their inner character.

    I didn't realize USC ran a similar system to that of the Broncos. :drool:

    Carr will have alittle more margin for error throwing to Moulds and Walter compared to Bradford, who'd still drop good passes, and Gaffney. More talent surrounding him and MUCH better coaching should spell improvement for Carr.

    While I understand your stance on Carr (Yes, we should have let him test the market to see what he's worth out there) you gotta' let go of the Carr bashing until he shows what he can do this season. Then it's fair game.

    I don't see anything wrong with his statements. In fact, me thinks he has also been given a personal speech trainer this offseason to help him with his public speaking skills.

    Carr's doing what every player should do in his situation: Repeat what the media is saying, which is "..Reggie Bush is great. He's a great player. He will help any team he is on."

    Sorry about the Carr bash people as I had stated I would not until he gave me something to complain about during the season. Moreover, I have started a new gig at work and needed to vent. Please continue to read the first of many fluff pieces on DC this year..

    Ah HA! Apparently the other well mentioned collegiate player is not the only one with IT. Good find, Frak.
