This is a serious question (whether you want Vince, Bush, or Trade Down) and I wonder if any of you have given it any thought. Yes, this is way down the road but it is something to consider. I have heard some of you say it is going to take 3 or 4 seasons before the Texans really start competing (that's obviously debatable). However, let's say 4 seasons since most coaches are given about that to start seeing results. By then I believe Carr will be 31 years old. Some guys are in their prime at 31 however some due taking a lot of hits at the NFL level are pretty broken down by their early 30's. Remember Troy Aikman? He took a ton of hits during his rookie season. He has often cited that season as taken a bad toll on his body that lingered. Obviously Carr took more hits than Aikman his rookie season since he set the NFL record. I think it is safe to say Carr has been living Aikman's rookie season for the last 4 years. Aikman had the benefit of only having to suffer 1 real bad season. He had already won a Super Bowl at this point in Carr's career (season #4). Some of you will say that is because he was on a great team. True, and that is my point. Carr hasn't and doesn't have that luxury. I'm concerned about the long term effects of this. So with all that said, is it reasonable to think that Carr is going to broken down like Aikman was in his early 30's? At the rate he is going he might be ready to retire before 33. I do remember one CBS color guy making a comment like "at this rate (referring to the sacks), by the time the Texans start turning things around, Carr will be ready to retire." I don't know how serious he was but it made me stop and think. Let's say Carr turns out to be a decent QB however starts to break down right around the time we get good enough to compete for the Super Bowl. It would be lame if the Texans had to start looking for QB around that time, right when we have a great team built around the QB position. QB is the toughest position to fill and if we are a decent team we will have to get lucky and get a replacement in the later rounds, i.e. New England and Brady. Should or do you think the Texans will have this mind when they start evaluating the draft and the way to go about building this team? Do you think this is a non factor because the Texans will be good next season or the following? Do you think Carr is a super tough freak of nature in the sense that hits don't effect him like they did Aikman? (not ruling that out) While I tried to avoid the "V" word in this post, is not the above a reasonable concern and give some validity to drafting a QB if they feel a great one is on the board? This definitely is factor in my opinion on what they should do.
