    Great news everyone, as y'all expected Carr will be traded:doot:
    According to CNNSI.com, the Houston Chronicle states Carr will be traded:

    David Carr will be traded, and Jake Plummer will be the Texans quarterback next season. Plummer will compete with Sage Rosenfels and a rookie Gary Kubiak wants to develop.

    If true.... fine by me. Now the question remains... who wants him, and for how much?

    Well, Plummer will only be a band-aid. I hope to God that the rookie develops fast...

    I'm okay with Carr being traded, but I wish Sage would be given the job, and another vet brought in to back him up.

    Wow can't wait to hear this official from sports shows. Also curious as to who he will be handing the ball off to.

    That is a quote from the Chronicle and at this stage is more rumor than any truth.

    Show me the chronicle article. This article was in the truth and rumors section. I can easily see this happening...but we have to find a trading partner for David Carr we like....AND sign Jake Plummer.

    Has Jake been released by the Broncos? Have we set up a trade between the Broncos and us for him? If he becomes a FA he has to want to come here...he could go somewhere else for a starting job for more money and not have to compete with sage...

    just a lot of questions still and untill I see more concrete evidence i will take this with a grain of salt.

    Anybody see on ESPN this morning those senior drills? Drew Stanton looked pretty accurate in the first drills...i didn't get to see any more qb stuff though...hope he's there in the 3rd for us????

    CNNSI is reading more into it than what there is so far. They're going off the same article that we read yesterday.

    We don't know for sure Sage's ability. You can't just say.."Here Sage...the offense is yours". When Plummer comes in, him and Sage will battle it out for the starting job. Plummer im sure is better than Sage and he knows the playbook already.

    That statement was in John McClains blog or column. Nothing really to it, well no truth anyway.

    It was a mis-worded rumor from the Chronicle that CNNSI decided to put on their "rumor" section. Talk about a website taking an article out of context. Now it's obvious how words from 4-5 different people end up translating to "it's going to happen."

    Is this a fact: No.
    Is the paper the GM of the Texans: No.
    Is this how the world will learn of Carr's fate, in a blog?: No.
    Will I give Justice any credibility: HEEE-LLLL NO.

    Thanks for clearing it up for me.

    i'm not against this happening though at all. I don't think Plummer or Carr are long term answers for us so whatever will help us the next 1-2 years and be cheaper...lets do it. as well as helping our team/ new qb develop...thats key...i dont want either to hold our team back from growing/improving.
