To defend David Carr, I recall the Texans/Cardinals game from 2005. In that game David Carr was allowed to make all of the Offensive playcalls in the First Half. The result was 24 points. Highly productive for a team that had been averaging 16 points for a game. Yes I know this was against the lowly Cardinals, but wait there's more. In the Second Half, Offensive Coordinator Joe Pendry resumed his role of making all of the Offensive playcalls. The result 6 points. The most amazing thing about this story is that Pendry continued to make almost all of the playcalls for the remainder of that season. Perhaps ego got in the way, as the coaches did not let Carr call many of the plays in the games that followed, and that could have cost them many victories and ultimately their jobs. I believe that this evidence suggests that when given a chance to call the plays David Carr can succeed. I have read that Kubiak limits the amount of freedom David Carr is allowed in calling audibles, and this could be to the detriment of the team. I am not suggesting that David Carr doesn't make mistakes, on the contrary he does make mistakes and needs to improve in many facets of the game. What I am saying is that David Carr can be a successful NFL QB if given the chance to succeed, and perhaps the playcalling is playing a big role in how poorly this Offense is performing. If David Carr was as bad as some people on this message board would have us believe those numbers in that game should have been reversed, with David Carr's playcalling resulting in only 6 points, but that isn't how it happened because David Carr is a very capable NFL QB that unfortunately has been held back throughout his almost 5 years in the league by a combination of bad playcalling, poor pass protection, and early on a lack of talented recievers. He now has talented recievers, but he still has poor pass protection and questionable, albeit better than the past, playcalling. Hopefully, next year if David Carr returns as the Texans's starting QB then they will give him better pass protection and the playcalling will improve as well.
