    would yall be happy if DD got 1400 yards and 9 tds(4.4 average) and Carr completed 60%of his passes passed 3000 yards and had 20 TD's and 19 INTS?

    would that make you happy for the season and this would be a successful season?

    What was our record during this season? Scoreboard baby. That's the only numbers I care about.

    It depends on how the team does. I don't mind seeing low personal statistics if the team wins games. I don't want high stats and a bunch of losses either. If the Texans win 16 games I'll be happy. Ok, I'll be happy if they win 8, but the same goes for doubling that.

    I don't know if I'd be happy with Carr throwing 19 INTs, though. He's kept his INTs low so far. I'd be more impressed with 20 TDs and 11 INTs. I think he should be able to get 3500 yards again too. Remember he had a 3500yd, 16/14 year 2 seasons ago. He should be able to improve upon those numbers not the ones he threw out last season. He's been over 60% completion percent the last 2 years; he should be looking to get that into the 64% range.

    however I am not thrilled about 8 more int's

    60% completion with 19 int's would suggest that it would not all be on the QB, except if your last name is Favre. Moreover, 3k out of DC is an accomplishment per his measureables as a Texan to date.

    I will take it, anything that approaches his career highs will benefit our overall success.

    I believe Carr's INT total will go up this year simply because we will take more shots downfield.

    If he has 19 INT's, I would need to see 25-35 TD's.

    This Carr thread has been alive for 25 minutes and SWTBound hasn't responded to it? AMAZING. Let's chalk this up as a MB record, how bout it?

    Stats from Carr that will make me smile:

    >20 TD
    <15 INT
    3500+ Yards

    Anything greater than that just reiterates my position when it comes to Carr. And by now I know that every single one of you knows my feelings when it comes to our QB.

    Carr haters wanna go at it tonight? I'm game! :boxing:

    anyone who would be truly happy with only one more touchdown than interception and worse, 19 in total, is crazy. especially if he was a big enough part of the O to throw for over 3000 yards.

    DD better be rushing for 15 touchdowns as well. with 2 fumbles (not likely).

    In my mind.
    Don't care what Davis gets.

    Beat the Colts.
    For crying out loud to the gods of football, don't get beat by both Mannings.
    Don't lose to Capers.
    Beat a Cowboy team with a winning record.

    be down 24-3 at the half against the Patriots and Brady. And then watch a ride to victory on the arm of a QB. Would even be okay if Carr was able to drive the ball within field goal range. Then Brown puts it away as the clock expires.

    Throw 50 INTs... I could care less. Carr already has more INTs then TDs and it doesn't mean much. If you throw one, then throw it again and keep throwing it until you win.

    5-11 and that season would have already passed every high watermark that we have set so far. That would be 4 to 5 teams dropped by the Texans that had a winning record.

    I could care less if carr throws for 50 tds....All I want is 8-8. If he can do that, I'll lay off him....if he can't, then he needs to leave.

    This post has a cynical yet seemingly positive meaning behind it. There is a good point that lies within that..... who cares what Carr does anyways? He isn't the only guy on that field. We need to win games, with or without a performing QB. You guys know that I believe he will soar next year.... but that doesn't mean I think we will lose without him.

    Good post TwinSisters, for some odd reason it seemed to make me a little more objective about my outlook on this season.

    :ok: makes sense.... Carr is responsible for 22+ other men to get their jobs done...
