    I did, I looked at his stats compared to another great NFL QB about to go into the hall and this is what I found.

    Aikman's first 4 years

    G GS Att Comp Pct Yds YPA Lg TD Int Rate
    11 11 293 155 52.9 1749 6 75t 9 18 55.7
    15 15 399 226 56.6 2579 6.5 61t 11 18 66.6
    12 12 363 237 65.3 2754 7.6 61 11 10 86.7
    16 16 473 302 63.8 3445 7.3 87t 23 14 89.5

    Pretty good, always progressing. Year 4 they were a playoff calibre team with lots of talent on it.

    Carr's first 4 years

    G GS Att Comp Pct Yds YPA Lg TD Int Rate
    16 16 444 233 52.5 2592 5.84 81 9 15 62.8
    12 11 295 167 56.6 2013 6.82 78 9 13 69.5
    16 16 466 285 61.2 3531 7.58 69 16 14 83.5
    16 16 423 256 60.5 2488 5.88 53 14 11 77.2

    always progressing till year 4, but unlike the Cowboys, the Texans in Carr's 4th year are not a playoff team, in fact Carr is still dealing with an OLine that is still expansion calibre.

    I think Carr can be salvaged. He is a good QB, all he needs is talent. The fact he is still throwing a 60% completion percentage shows that all is not lost with him.

    I am on the trade the pick band wagon only if we can get great value. If not then I want Bush. He is more NFL prepared than Young is by a long shot. Say what you will, but when Young gets to the NFL he will struggle hard. Every team is like a whos who of college talent, not a Baylor, not a Kansas. He could rely on his legs beacuse he was a man among boys. Now he is just another man in a league that had LB's and some DE's that run just as fast. When it comes to passing, he is right there with Michael Vick. Young needs to learn behind someone like Chris Simms did, Mack Brown can't coach a QB to save his life and the NFL scouts know it. I don't care if he went to Texas, that is the only reason that most of you are fighting for him. If he went to Michigan it would be Bush all the way.

    KSig44 you cannot come on this board and throw facts around and expect to get good replies. Man most of the intelligent posters on this board understand Carr's situation, and our main problem is not his overall skills, but his contract. Right now I feel he should be restructured to a deal similar to Jake Plummers that gives us two years at a cheap price and makes him very tradeable, but it also gives us the ability if he shows he is the man to give him a nice bonus and make him one of the higher paid QBs in the league.

    Where's the sack #'s. That is one of the reasons we're having prblems. Year 1 it was the O-line, but year 4, c'mon. The dude can't read an NFL defense. It's proven.

    I want to trade down, and I am by no means in love with VY, but to say his passing skills aren't better than Vick's is ridiculous.

    $29MILLION is no bargain basement price for Jake Plummer. The year he went to Denver from here (Phoenix), he was the BEST FA/QB on the market. Everyone in Arizona was laughing their azzes off for what Denver paid him. The last 2 yrs it's toned down to a low giggle! :crying: However, he didn't have an OL here either and the system they put him in was THE WORST SYSTEM he could've EVER been in. Denver rolls him out. Not very often will you see him standing between the 2 Tackles in the pocket. Denver rolls him out and rolls the pocket with him. That's where he's at his best. Too bad that THREE different Head Coaches here couldn't figure that out. :brickwall :brickwall

    You can't get a pass off to either get a completion or an INT when you cannot read an NFL defense and decide to take a sack, get sacked, throw an incompletion, overthrow a wide open receiver, or scramble pre-maturely.

    In the light of saying that INT's aren't bad then let's say we take away 15-20 sacks. He still leads the league in sacks I believe and some of that passes thrown would've been INT's. I say add 6-8 INT's with your arguement. Still is opportunistic.

    I think that most have for the most part. But the question really is have you done more than a little research on Carr?

    This thread has been done several times before. I am not going to spend the time and energy as I have before pulling up QBs which had mediocore at best careers showing how similair Carr's numbers are to those guys. Not new and has nothing to do with the price of tea in China.

    Here's a link to David Carr's 2005 stats, you canlook around and find his other year's stat's... Do a little thinking, and try to come up with an intelligent post... Get the fact's straight, it is the product of an inconsistant O-line, they can block for the running game... But they have a hard time holding off the pass rush... I don't know, hate it or love it, I think David Carr is going to do alright for himself in the future.

    I am not a huge poster, most everyone pretty much hammers all points that can be made. This argument bothers me though. Carr throws 11 INT's in 423 total attempts and is suddenly going to throw 6-8 more INT's in 15-20 additional attempts if he didn't get sacked?

    Now I realize under pressure the odds increases he makes a mistake, but I seriously doubt it is that high. Some of those completions he did make was rushing out of the pocket away from defenders. Other times he would take the ball and run, it isn't guaranteed what he would do if he didn't take the sack.

    423 attempts / 11 INT = 2.6%

    20 additional attempts @ 2.6% = half an interception, so maybe 1-3 can be added with a worse case scenario?

    this comparison has been made by the homers since the second year i believe but i think it is unfair to compare carr to aikman to many Diferrences. the only similarity i see is the number on their Jersey.

    so you're saying that if you took away that number of sacks that HALF of the throws would be INTs? Puh-lease....purely speculative, and you're blinders on ever even thinking Carr was capable of more doesn't help the credibility of your argument.

    Fewer yards than year 1. Almost fewer YPA than year 1. Great.

    Actually MOST of the Carr bashers have done little or no research on him. The real problem is the offensive line and until this situation is corrected, there is no way to properly evaluate him. I would love to put some of you Carr bashers behind his line in an NFL game just to show you how much time he has to throw the ball. I know it would be MUCH FASTER than you think right now.

    Actually since most of the posters here did not play football past highschool with a few playing in college, putting them behind any pro line would pretty much would have the same effect.

    I have done extensive research on this "Carr"

    it appears he is a "quarter-back" for a football team called the "Texans"

    He is said to have an ongiong fued with his "offensive line", which appears to be a rival gang in the region. Apparently this "Carr" didn't pay his protection, so he was roughed up by the "defense".

    This "Carr" is rumored to have dashing good looks, and a hairstyle to match. He has been said to have bedded hundreds of womenfolk, under no false pretense.

    He has often been compared to "Joey" throughout his career. but now a new man is in town. Simply known as "VY". "VY" has been heard showing interest in Carr's position, and wants to run him out of town. "VY" is a legend in these parts, and stories of him stretch all the way from the slums of Columbus, to the outskirts of Los Angeles. Said to be fast as a Cheetah and strong as an Ox "VY" has made a name for himself as pulling out the win when all hopes are lost.

    that is all I have discovered for now, ill get back with more later.
