    "What happened to us last year I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy," Carr said last week when the Texans reported to training camp at Reliant Park. "I mean, having a 2-14 record isn't fun at all.

    Well Carr might not wish it upon our worst enemies, BUT I WILL!! I'd celebrate if the Titans, Colts, Jags, and Cowboys all had 2-14 records! :D

    I like DC's attitude and optimism, though. Getting yourself mentally prepared is so important to establishing the belief that you can do it. I think - hope - we see a brand new Carr this year.

    I wouldn't...That means they'd be adding a really high draft pick to an already potent squad...(excluding the Titans)

    A big sign of Carr's improvement would be in his 4th Quarter efficiency rating, which has been poor over his previous four years.

    My gut leads me to believe the Texans give up around 40 sacks (not great but competitive at least) and Carr, because of a stronger rushing game, will peform a bit better in the 4th Quarter. How much better will be the question, though.

    Understandable...but I can only think one year at a time, my friend. And if all of our division rivals went 2-14, it most likely means that we [finally] win our first division title and a trip to the playoffs.

    This, of course, is far from a reality check. It's just the way I'm geared to root for our team and against others.

    I will tell you what, the guy has a chip on his shoulders, some people around here and around the news have opened the mouths and said some things toooooo early...............Dont expect Carr to be jumping into the same stands that booed him in games last year...............I just hope some of you will be man enough to admit when your wrong when the time comes.

    Happy Birthday Hulk.

    I just want Carr to lead the offense to TD's. That is all most of us have ever wanted. Hopefully you are right and the bashing was the motivation.

    You might be right about the 40 sacks, but I hope that's wrong. We've got so many weapons this year that we've never had before. There's no way to actively quantify a difference from that as far as I know but my gut tells me this ain't the time to be guessing on specific numbers with this team. I hope we get gobs of surprises that look like Christmas presents.

    This has a lot to do with the defense being on the field way too long as well as conservative play calling. Don't get me wrong, I think Carr has been far from efficient in any quarter much less the fourth. I just think it has more than just Carr himself to do with it.:ok:
