    Being the conspiracy theorist that I am, do you think it's possible that Carr's poor play so far as well as the rest of the offense was a ploy to get their OC fired? Just a dumb thought.

    I'm thinking that the offense was getting mixed signals from Capers and Palmer and the SNAFU we've seen was a direct result of that. From the few reports I've heard, the offensive players liked Palmers and his style of game. Capers seems to be the one at odds with that open offensive philosophy.

    I don't think Carr has intentionally played poorly. But, there wasn't a lot of love between Palmer and Carr, and it's very possible that Carr stop hearing what Palmer had to say. I don't like it when a player's inability to communicate with a coach causes a change, but it happens all the time.

    Maybe the fact that Pendry and Carr are on speaking terms will help the offense. I'm not sure. But I do think that whatever was between Carr and Palmer was hurting the team and it's always easier to get rid of the coach.

    I thought it was common knowledge that Carr and Palmer weren't ever close.
    I think Palmer was very telling when he made these comments...

    That finger pointing going on between Carr & Palmer was just reported after Sunday's game and is a clear indication of their friction, but I don't recall
    of anything prior to that in print ? That's not to say insiders don't know about
    internal problems the two have had for some time now ? But Palmer is history now and what I'm just as interested in is who was Todd Wade pointing his finger at - Carr, Palmer, or someone else ?

    There is something to be said when a guy voluntarily runs out of bounds for a "sack" rather than throwing an incompletion and helping the team save a few yards.

    you mean like the time when DD blocked Palamalwalamama upfield and to, what should have been, the backside of the pocket and David Carr ran right into his arms for a sack? :rolleyes:

    I guess that was the David Carr version of 'if you can't come to me, I'll come to you' train of thought. :ok:

    Its not Carrs Fault. The Coaches have been training Carr to expect his blockers to do the wrong thing for the past three years.

    how in the world can ANYONE not know that Palmer and Carr didn't like each other? :confused:

    that secret was almost kept as quite as Bud Adams taking his team to TN. :texflag:

    Bubba, getting you to admit that ANYTHING is Carr's fault would be harder than teaching a dog to go "MEOW", so you'll excuse me if I don't spend alot of time on trying.

    I don't have the time, energy, or motivation, to help you take off the Carr Blinders. It simply is what it is. Your opinion, verses mine. we will simply have to agree to disagree on Carr.

    If there was even a hint that Carr was playing poorly on purpose for the reason of getting his OC fired, he'd never play another down in this league. What coach would be dumb enough to trust him after that?

    I don't think Carr's been doing that, I just had to say it.

    Ever heard of sarcasim. I dont think that nothing is his fault. I just dont think everything is his fault like most people. Theres to many things going wrong with this team for it to be one persons fault.

    if so, then I apologize to Bubba for the remark. But from memory he seems to be one of the Carr can do no wrong people. If not, then my apology's Bubba. :embarrass
