    “David has been inconsistent, and we‘ve said that” McNair said at a Texas Bowl luncheon at the JW Marriott. “He’s had some good games and he’s had some games that haven’t been as good. He’s a tremendous athlete. We’ve got to get better consistency there, either with David or with some additional help. We need more consistency at quarterback.”

    “We’ve been willing to do whatever we need to do to win. Really that hasn’t changed,” McNair said. “We let a number of veterans go last year and this season and we took a hit on the cap. It was in the best interest of our team. We’re going to do whatever we need to do to improve our team and win. That’s what we’re all about.”



    Pretty much what we all expected.... just coming from the head honcho himself. Its going to be an interesting offseason. But no matter what.. you have to know all McNair wants to do is win.

    Finally! Some real news!
    Let the speculation begin!

    "McNair has been one of Carr’s biggest supporters since the team drafted him with the No. 1 overall pick during their expansion season in 2002. But after five straight losing seasons that support appears to be waning. McNair has not publicly endorsed Carr in recent months and has declined to speculate on the quarterback’s future with the team for the 2007 season."

    Music to my ears!

    I'm glad to finally hear it. Seems like McNair's had an attachment to Carr that isn't exactly healthy.

    Time to cut the cord.

    "He targeted wide receiver, running back, defensive tackle, linebacker and safety as areas the Texans would like to bolster."
    *****************************************
    What about DE ? Kubiak has said we still don't have a real pass rushing threat. You 2 need to get on the same page there BM.
    And why WR ? You brought in 2 WR FAs last year who are your 2 & 3 guys after AJ. Gotta start making smarter personnel pickups, as the team just repeats the same mistake.
    Hopefully RS can pull this team and its player evaluation selection process together.

    I have a feeling that "the snake" will be starting qb in 07.

    Good article. I like this quote as well.

    Finally admitting that mistakes have been made is the first step toward correcting them.

    To me this says they are going to do what they can to get something for David but the price has to be right.

    If they don't get what they want, they are prepared to stay with David and wade it out by providing better talent around him.

    Big mistake if Carr is his backup, IMO. Too much money at one position for mediocre QBs, at best.

    I honestly won't be surprised if DC is in traning camp.

    I think he is admitting it but he is also saying people were here spending stupidly but now Rick Smith has opened his eyes to a better way.

    Especially with the cap specialist on board. I wonder if Carr will ask to be let go? :stirpot:

    how is plummer an upgrade?

    Keep Carr, draft a QB, and if Carr fails send in Rosenfels and drop Carr.

    Maybe it's just me, but IMO, Plummer is a definite upgrade over Carr.

    I would say Kubiak has coached both so if he says Plummer is an upgrade ... then I've got to think he's an upgrade .

    Lets look at some combinations and permutations...

    Plummer + Kubiak = Good
    Plummer - Kubiak = Not good

    Carr - Kubiak = Not good
    Carr + Kubiak = Not good

    All other things being equal, Plummer playing under Kubiak is a better option than Carr playing under Kubiak.

    Plummer this season was 7-3 when he was benched.

    Carr is 8-32 in the past two seasons.
