    Another conspiracy theory of mine...
    :hides:
    Do you guys think that Carr could actually think that he REALLY IS a "Good Quarterback" and be tanking these games on purpose???

    Why would he?
    So the coaches, front office & fans would get sick of him.

    Why would he?
    So he could get to go to a "better team."

    Why would he?
    8 million reasons, this year.

    Is there anyway that he has some convoluted notion that he is a GOOD QB and would be even better if he were to get out of Houston???

    Like I said...Just a conspiracy theory.
    :hides:
    Any Thoughts?

    Tanking..... WHAT?

    How can you increase your own value by sucking, and going to a good team? Please explain to me how that would even happen...David might only now get us a 4th round pick. And what team right now has a worse QB than us? Oakland? Close to home, hmm.....Maybe you are right...NOT.

    Tanking only labels you a quitter...

    I think he's a character guy so I don't believe he would do anything like that.

    I do believe he's ready to move on to another team though. And I think it's certainly in the team's best interest for that to happen.

    Houston, again.
    Tanking intentionaly.......I highly doubt it. Could he be fed up and just not really caring anymore....Could be. Think how you would feel with the team not doing what has been needed with the line for years, your getting beat like a rented mule and the Fans and local media are screaming for your head. How much enthusiasim could you whipp up? And don't give me that "8 million reason" thing because that's a bogus rabbit trail. You may think it would matter to you because you don't have that kind of coin, but after several years of being pummeled and despised, you wouldn't really care any more either.

    He stinks as a Texan. Maybe he goes on to do well in another offensive system under a new head coach with a better supporting cast.

    Always typing in blue and putting this [:-o> at the end of each thread title is getting a little annoying.

    Hundreds of sacks in his first several years of pro ball have "broken" him. He has been conditioned by the constant beating to react in ways that are detrimental to being a good QB. His instincts have now been wired to worry about the rush first, turnovers second, and then the play third.

    While a class act, good family man, and a player that once had a lot of potential, I just think he's lost his edge to the sack monster. He's not tanking, though...

    In addition to the blue centered type and this guy [:-o> the overuse of elaborate smiles is annoying.
