    Mike Golic this morning if the Texans get Jake Plummer then David Carr will be avaible and probably gone.

    He also said that he liked David Carr as a quarterback.

    Greeny said doesnt a quarterback have to show signs of improvement.


    Hello Plummer, goodbye Carr.
    Start Sage 3 TDs in one half.

    I really think that Carr will have success elsewhere. Maybe a change of scenery will help him out. Let's see what happens.

    Forget what they are looking for as a replacement for a second.....you have D'Rob saying "It's time.......I'm not saying he can't be a great QB with another team. But here has been here 5 years and the best we have been able to do is 7-9." You also have Moulds saying, "the quarterback has to show he can carry (the team.)" It is amazing that they can express things alot of people here have been saying for a while yet people want to keep him. Add to that the fact that management has already shown a willingness to let him go and many fans are ready and you have a situation where it is imperative that he be let go in a trade or some type of deal. He's lost fans, teammates and a team's managements faith. It iS time. As I said before, you part ways an hope both parties are succesful.

    Of course he'll have success elsewhere... somewhere you don't have to worry about worry about NFL defenses, like Canada or Europe or Zimbabwe

    John Lopez wrote in today's Chronicle that keeping Carr is crippling the franchise .

    Only time will tell what is going to happen with DC. Feelings are mixed about him around the league as far as I have seen. He got paid in Houston, the question is "Do the Texans want to keep paying him?"

    Greeny is an *****.......just ask his wife.

    And in further news it is speculated that if the sun shines down on a clear day the sky will turn blue.

    Picking up the option on Carr's contract crippled the franchise. Let's not ignore the obvious here. Management repeatedly gets off scott free when the bashing goes on about Carr. If you didn't think you could hitch your horse to that wagon, then don't arbitrarily reup him and tell us that he is the guy that can lead your team.

    but if Kubiak wouldn't have said 'Carr is my guy' everyone knows he wouldn't have got the job. McNair hired his rubber stamp and he is now reaping what he sows.

    McNair can go fellate himself for all I care. He is a blithering moron.

    Over here.
    Almost everyone, including most of the Carr fans, were against giving him that contract. I'm beginning to think that the fans really do know better than the front office.

    Just wanted to point out that by your statement of "management has already shown a willingness to let him go" most of the team should be let go. Kubes and Smith have said they will listen to anything that improves the team. I believe McNair said this also. My point has always been, if we think Kubes and Smith were the correct choices and I do not remember any post saying otherwise, then how about us letting them make the decision on Carr? I like DC and think he will do better with a Oline that stays the same more than 2 games, a back than can average more than 3 yds and a #2 receiver that can get past a defender. Having said that, if management says "Carr, you gotta go." I'll trust that. I just do not see a better option available this year. For any of you to say "Anyone is better than Carr" is ridiculous to me. DC needs to improve and can. The same can be said for Dunte Robinson.

    The last 10 games of his "season of improvement" last year he had ONE TD pass of any consequence and had 2 total over that ten game span. The other one was vs the Jets and it came late in the game when we were losing 26-3 in garbage time. When to you think this "improvement" will happen if it wasn't happening after 80 NFL starts?

    Actually the contract is just one aspect .

    This has been brewing for awhile ... several teamates have been vocal about Carr's treatment . Of course their gone now.

    Carr is like the Little League pitcher who can't throw a strike but does'nt get pulled because Dad's the coach . When ask why junior does'nt get pulled Dad replies ... well who are we gonna put in . The answer is why not try somebody else because the job is not getting done .

    I think Dunta and Moulds actions were those of a mutiny because of the fear Carr's coming back .

    I do not see him crippling the team it is the bad sighings from the past that do no produce he helps hurt the team but cripple.

    In the NFL, there are no other QBs that will have to have their footwork corrected during game time. There is only one QB I know of that his head coach is cautious about putting him in the shotgun, and I can't think of one starter who does not run a two minute drill, run a hurry up offense, or can not under any circumstance call an audible.

    Wouldn't it be something if Kubes sealed his fate with the Texans before he coached his first game by saying he wanted to keep Carr?
