The Texans part will get here--just a minute. Been a lot of complaining about Carr around here and dreadful predictions on his future from complete bust to Kerry Collins. Just curious what that says about Steve McNair, last year's co-mvp?--or what it says about fan impatience? How many years did it take McNair to have a QB rating better than Carr's so far this year? Answer 5th year as a starter--after two years on the bench for the most part. How many years out of 8 as a starter has McNair had a better QB rating? Answer 2. How many years has McNair had a better yards per attempt? Answer 1. How many times in McNair's 10 year career has he thrown more balls over 20 yards than Carr has this year (48 so far)? Answer 2. Plus, unless Carr gets knocked out for the remainder of the year, he will have thrown for more yards in a season than McNair ever has. Now keep in mind the team around McNair--Eddie George, an OL that actually sent people to the pro-bowl (in fact the worst season McNair has ever endured has already been met by Carr this season--37 sacks)--a team that until this year had only one losing season since leaving Houston and had gotten to the Super Bowl. The point of this?--well it isn't that McNair isn't any good. JMO, looking for places to improve the team is one thing, but pulling out the negativity crystal ball is silly unless it is the same one that predicted the Chargers would go to the playoffs this year and that Drew Brees really was a good QB. The other point is that QB's and OC's get too much credit when teams do well and too much criticism when teams do poorly. Build an OL that gives up less than 35 sacks a year on a consistant basis and we will see what Carr and Palmer are made of. EDIT--Disclaimer addition--as there seems to be some confusion, nothing in this thread is intended to state or imply that McNair is not an excellent QB or as a prediction that Carr is or will be as good or better a QB than McNair. Whooh--hopefully that get's it done.
