How long do you give David Carr

How long will you give David Carr to lead this team?

  1. I am a homer, um forever

    2.8%
  2. Give him a year to see what he can do in the system and see how he progresses

    56.9%
  3. I say give us until the bye week to see where he is at

    27.8%
  4. I'll give him 1 game, if he sucks then yank him

    1.4%
  5. I say pull the plug now and start Safe Rosenfels

    1.4%
  6. However long Kubiak gives him

    9.7%
  1. Ok it's the start of the season. We have a new coach, new offense, new coordinators and new players, all mostly from successful tenures. So keeping that in mind, how long do you give David Carr to lead this team?

    I don't think that you can just set a time table, because if he comes out in the first game and just totally stinks it up/ does nothing right, I'll be calling for his replacement the next game, if not that very game....But if he comes out, and plays alright all year but still is somewhat dissapointing I'll be calling for a new QB in the draft....It just depends...

    Bye week - if he is responsible for losses before then (cleary responsible) let him sit in Dallas. JMO

    Okay I defend Carr and everything, but he would have to have some horrid games to be able to blame him solely for a loss.

    Seen it happen before - lack of leadership is horrid
     
  10. ok you make no sense. First you voted that you'd give him until the bye week and now you comment that if he sucks the 1st game you'd replace him the next game. OK???? There was an option on the poll that says if he sucks against Philadelphia then you yank him. You seem a little whishy washy.

    OK, never heard of a loss being blamed on a lack of leadership but whatever.

    IM A :homer: UMM...FOREVER... no seriously i will give him at least 2 seasons which will give kubiak enough time to surround him with better players (if need be) thru the draft and free agency..this also should be enough time to get the system down....anything after that..:brickwall
     
  13. Holy *****, did I just see the wonger need food vote to give Carr a little time?? THAT MUST BE AN IMPOSTER!

    We have the players in place, Kubiak did an outstanding job in the draft and in free agency IMO. Carr just needs to step up bigtime this season.

    ha ha...I saw that and it really wasn't for me...Because I just think it really depends...I think he has sucked in the pre-season in some games...but I don't think any of his performances justified him being yanked...In order for him to get yanked in philly he would have to do nothing right...I chose the option i chose because i figured it was middle ground...

    i'd say give him a year, but if he starts screwing up ingame, sit him so sage can show his stuff.

    however long Kubiak sticks with him yes, nobody knows how long its going to take to rehab his career so I guess as long that he shows improvement week to week without any major set-backs by seasons end David Carr will remain the starting QB :shoot:
