    Kubiak said after the game that Carr will start against the Giants. The reason Carr was pulled is that Kubiak told him if he lost a fumble in the 3rd quarter, he would pull him.

    If Carr stinks it up next week, this city will be calling for Kubiak's head.

    I think the only head they will be after is Carr's.

    Kubes has shown the willingness to bench Carr, and I dont doubt that Carr will be on a short leash next week. Meaning, if he starts to look anything like he did this week, hes gonna be pulled again (i bet).

    Aside from the fumbles Carr looked good today and I don't know that the fumbles were necessarily Carr's fault. I don't disagree with playing Sage today, Kubiak wanted to play better in our worse quarter and set an example by pulling Carr. But Carr is extremely talented and deserves to be our starter.

    I agree...............playing this bad against VY is going to hurt Carr locally I think.

    Wow....I'm a little shocked.

    But after a LITTLE thought.....I think this might be DC's last chance.

    (I would have gone with Sage for now though)

    What about the INT to triple coverage? Or the tipped passes. Or the passes to the ground? Or what about not getting the #1 receiver in the AFC involved in the 1st half? Sage>Carr.

    Coming from one of the biggest Carr apologists on the board, it must mean something since he is such a "pro" on these boards. I said Carr was done 2 weeks ago, he got a grace in the Jacksonville game, his true colors showed today, especially on the sidelines with his pouting shoulder pad holding crybaby attitude. Someone other than Carr must start in order for this organization to start anew. More Carr apologists will be coming out of the woodwork this week saying the same thing. The only addendum is that they will "claim" they really knew that all along.

    The happiest ones concerning this decision has to be Strahan and company. The Texans are already 2-6 after this announcement.

    The INT was a bad decision, I give you that. Otherwise he completed 71% of his passes, you have to take that kind of efficiency.

    Carr did suck today but Sage is not better than him. Remember, Carr is still having a good season he just needs to stop the games were he is horrible.


    Btw, Wiegert was horrible today. I heard Vanden Bosh's name (the guy wiegert was suppose to be gaurding) each time Carr or Sage dropped back to pass. Carr was holding onto the ball but heck the line use to be able to block well Wiegert anyway.

    Carr was trash today but Hes still the starter.

    Hah, one of the biggest Carr apologists? Ive always said that he needs to be given a fair shake. Meaning.. he needed more time to see what he could do in an offense that WASNT run by morons.

    That isnt being a "Carr apologist".. that is making sure you know what you have before you throw it in the trash. If everyone had sucked today, id be blaming it on overall performance. Fact of the matter is that Carr was the only weak link and he lost this game for us single handedly.

    So now I cant say "lets see how he does in a working offense" cause ive seen it now.. and he looked great.. but that kind of inconsistency is going to set this team back a long way. We need someone out there that is dependable.. otherwise he is gonna slow down our progress.

    So, no..im not a Carr apologist. I support smart decisions. Keeping Carr and seeing what we had was the smart decision. Im less sure about this decision to continue starting Carr, but ill support Kubiak in this, seeing as he knows 1000x more than I do about this kind of thing.

    This will be bad for Carr. He will be going up against the best D in the league at going after the QB. Carr needs to find a way to get his Oline to protect him better. I'm sad to say this will probably be Carr's last game. Carr will get sack several times and probably fumble a few. Then Sage will come in, Houston fans will cheer. Then Sage will get killed just like Carr. I don't think this will be win situation for either QB, or the team.

    Okay, let me be the first to call Kubiak into question. His play calling and time management today were absoueltely atrocious. What the hell is Dayne running draws for with 3 minutes to go. Why is Dayne even active. That guy is one yard and a cloud of fat. The drive at the end of the half was terribly called, and executed worse. What was he thinking. Make up your mind Kubes. Either sit on the damn thing, or actually show some confidence and try to score. He was like a guy driving to a fork in the road, and taking it. Kubiak was out to lunch on that drive AGAIN. That's the second time this year. And, now he claims Carr as the starter, when it's clear to all but Carr and his immediate relatives that Carr is absoulute garbage as a starting NFL QB. His QB rating proves that statistic is worthless.

    Would you quit going around to EVERY thread posting negative crap? Yes, we see there is a problem, and yes its going to be fixed. This team is moving in the right direction, STILL, even after this loss.
