    Per Bob Glauber on Cold Pizza, Casserly told him directly via phone that we will resign Carr because the front office feels he was improperly coached. It was on about 1 minute ago...

    I think that is a good thing. Carr seems to have good leadership skills and a cannon for an arm. Once he gets put into a good system and has an oppurtunity to make some plays people will change their mind about him. Has Bush said if he's going pro yet?

    Gary Walker publicly said the coordinators were to blame for this season. Reeves (apparently) recommended keeping Casserly and firing Capers. Pendry started Riley at LT for 4 games and Capers didn't overrule him.

    I see a pattern here...

    Anybody see that article in the Chronicle about the Texan players watching Reggie Bush play and being impressed?

    Wasn't it funny how they were all talking about Reggie and then Gary Walker says that they should draft Vince? He must really hate David Carr.

    You can have the fastest CARR in town BUT if you don't know how to utilize it's speed then it's just another car. Here's to better coaching and to brighter days ahead.

    LOL....Gary Walker is a pretty shrude guy at times. I believe however that with the right coaching staff....our O-line and David Carr will improve dramatically. Our ex-coaching staff was a virus to our players. Having Bush in the back field or on the slot will help the Texans offense out a great deal. Casserly had better pick up Bush! Even in Bush's quietest game in a highly anticipated game, he still came out looking like a stud. I'd love that kind of "bad game" in a Texans uniform any Sunday!:ok:

    The Texans organization is heading in the right direction. Fired Capers and his Cronies, signed Carr, now all we need to do is have a good draft, sign Lecharles Bentley and some other hole fillers, and hire Gary Kubiak, B. Shottenheimer, Dennison, and a nice DC and we are on track. btw Texan Asylum your avatar is likely the second best to TexansCanes on this board.

    Sign CArr...yeah go ahead and give G. WAlker a 8 million dollar bonus while your at it... CArr has had 4 years and hadnt done NADA!!! Im not jumping on the bandwagon..i been on the VY wagon since last year....If you seen the rose bowl last year, you know that Vince was going to win last night..he wouldnt let that happen..He is a Winner..Havent you guys seen CArr this year...He gets scared of his SHADOW!!!..as far as Im concerned CArr is damaged goods, time to move foward and stop hanging on to CArrs Jock Strap!!:slap:

    So u'd like to take VY at QB and just let Carr go for a few draft picks or whatever. Come on man...we're not playing a video game here. And how can u say Carr is scared of his shadow, the kid keeps getting up hit after hit after hit and never wavers. I know he does hold on to the ball too long some times but I believe that has to do with 2 things. One the offense coach and scheme....didn't have this problem in college. Two the number of hits he has taken....think this has just messed up the timing in his head. But he did make one improvement this and that was the # of int's...he only threw 12 i beleive. Carr with Bush and new coach/scheme and he'll be the most improved QB of 06. VY will be good...just not here.

    :challenge If Carr stays he has got to be the leader on and off the field . There has been alot said about this already but this is priority 1 .

    I think his leadership will only improve once the stiffling effect of the previous coaching regime is gone and a fresh approach utilizing his natural skills is in place. I said many weeks ago that I thought he was reeled in talent wise and leadership wise. He just seemed to operate like he was under someone elses thumb. Well thank the powers that be the owners of that thumb are history.
    Hopefully!

    Yeah i think we have him signed for a few more years. Too much of a cap hit if we let him go. But u never know with the texans....look at all the veteran leaders they let go last year.

    It does seem like the coaching staff never gave him a chance to be a leader. They never allowed him to call the plays at the line, and when he did for a half, they scored 24 points. But then never was able to call them again.

    Hopefully Kubiak can nurture him into a good quarter back because he has success with quarter backs of his style.

    So what do we do??? give CArr the reigns to the horse for another 4 years, than what??? Young is the guy..youre right this is not a video game...in case you didnt see last night....that was no video game either...vince took over and showed the non-belivers that he is the real deal!!! The scheme, coaches...sounds like excuses to me.....carr is gun shy, hes been knocked around too many times..hes tough, hes earned that..but if you weigh the risk vs. reward, its a no brainer...VINCE IN O6...Come Home Vince!!!!:yahoo:

    I doubt VY comes out this year. He was kind of peeved about not getting the Heisman. It's pretty much his to win unless he rips his achilles right off anytime between now and then. That and I believe he has a lot of loyalty to Mac Brown...so I think VY stays.

    I couldn't agree more.

    besides, even speculating about young is useless because carr IS staying
