Good for David.
Posting some of the highlights before the obligatory asshat post comes in from not having read the article.
One thing about Carr and his family: he talks the talk and he walks the walk. Hoping for the best for him.
5 boys and a Daughter? Do they not have cable?
Good for him, but let's not pretend he turned down multi year mega offers. 6 weeks of emergency back up role isn't worth the peace of mind of being at home for that...especially when he already has millions in the account.
david carr looks jacked now
Too bad he didn't tell BoB he would rather stay home with the family before the Texans drafted him.
not to be a jerk or anything, but how does a 2 year old get diabetes?
Genetics. Possibly a virus. Possibly exposure to certain foods.
But mostly genetics.
Remember, this is Type 1 Diabetes not Type 2 Diabetes (which is more of an obesity/lifestyle+genetics thing.)
He turned down a lot of film study and practice time as a Texan to stay with family too.
He doesn't need the money does he ?
Why is that?
David Carr was always a classy guy that I admired and respected. He was great for the community and the city of Houston was lucky to have him for what he did off the field. It's just a shame his career turned out to be a bust, but at least he won a Super Bowl ring with the Giants as Eli Manning's backup.
And he shouldn't have stolen your lunch money.
Several former teammates on the Texans said he was only a 9-5 guy. Rarely stayed late to study film. I know I heard Chester Pitts say something to that effect, but there were others but I can't recall exactly who. I believe Carr is a decent man and family man, but it seems he didn't put in the extra work to try to become a better player. Of course it didn't help that the OL was terrible and the coaching staff was even worse than the current regime so it may not have made any diffrence and maybe he knew it wouldn't matter.
Make babies or watch cable?
I'm sure they have a DVR.
The Oline was not nearly as terrible as people make out. The change from the very mobile Carr to the sloth Schaub had the team go from 43 sacks to 22. Only RT changed going from Wiegert to Winston.
Carr just across the board was not real committed to football and was aloof from the team. He rarely organized extra work or meetings with the WRs. He didn't socialize with his OL. He didn't stay at the facility and study tape with the coaches, WRs and QBs.
But it's debateable that the current coaching staff is better than the old coaching staff. 3 DC's in 8 yrs and Coach Joe still has a job.
Good for David. Someone calculated his NFL earnings (without endorsements), and it was well over $60 million. He seems like a smart dude, so his family should be set for life.
As far as his time here, it was so long ago that I do not see the point of holding on to bitter feelings. He was never going to be elite due to his skills and work ethic, and whatever potential he had was probably beat out of him the first couple of seasons. It never helped that he did not have a QB coach when he entered the league.
The no. 8 just needs to be taboo with the Texans now. Cursed or whatever, just stay away from it. NFL Sack records and pick six records have tainted it.
Not really debatable. Capers developed neither a good O or D. The D at 15 for one season was the only unit he ever had in the top half of the league. Marciano was here the whole time and Capers hired an out of coaching bed and breakfast owner as OC.
