    On Fox Sports Extra last night McNair was questioned about Carr's future. He answered by saying that they needed someone to replace Carr and "there are 20 quarterbacks in the league that aren't as good as David Carr." Does this include backup and practice squad guys? If he is referring to starting NFL quarterbacks he is obviously completely off his rocker.

    I saw a reference to that comment while I was surfing the net. My reaction was the same as yours--it's really not hard to find 20 starting QB's who are better than David.

    Here is an off-the-cuff list, not necessarily in order of their relative status:

    P. Manning
    Brady
    Brees
    Palmer
    McNair
    Favre
    Rivers
    Hasselbeck
    Garcia
    Romo
    Bulger
    Pennington
    Young
    Leinert
    Green
    Cutler
    Kitna
    Losman
    Vick
    Roethlisberger

    I dunno, but we can only hope that the ole man is building Carr up to unload
    him, becasue if his remark was sincere, well that's probably not a good thing.

    no it wont, but making redundant arguments about the same thing in every single thread will though.

    Yeah, I like him a lot too. I hope McNair was just posturing. If Kubiak and Smith conclude that Carr is not the guy for the team, I have little doubt McNair will let them get rid of Carr.

    Hi:

    Completely disagree with you about Favre. Even at his advanced age, Favre is far better than Carr (all this is my opinion, of course).

    Pennington has a weak arm, but is a much smarter QB who knows how to make plays. Carr has a strong arm and is a great athlete, but has no pocket presence and makes horrible decisions for a 5th year pro.
    Which brings me to my next point...

    Yes, Young and Leinert are rookies, but have already shown me more than Carr ever has. Leinert with his smarts and pocket presence (behind a line that is unquestionably worse than ours, I might add), and Young with his leadership and playmaking ability.

    I also think Cutler is already better than Carr.

    Did you see Kitna play yesterday? He carved up Dallas's defense with his sorry cast of characters, which David did not even come close to doing.

    If Losman torched Houston, why couldn't Carr do that to Cleveland--an injury riddled team that plays like garbage?

    Big Ben has had an off-year, perhaps because of his motorcycle injuries, but he is a Super Bowl champion and played great his first 2 years. If there were no salary cap ramifications and the Steelers were willing to trade Ben for David straight up, you don't think the Texans would take that deal in a heartbeat?

    No, I'm pretty sure that's you.

    The only thing you ever have to say is that David and the franchise SUCKS. Did you graduate from HS? Come up with a legitimate argument for once please.

    Are you are a relative or friend of Carr's?

    In my opinion ... here's the teams that have a worse QB situation than us .


    Minnesota
    Chicago
    Tampa
    Cleveland
    Oakland
    Washington
    Carolina
    Green Bay

    I'm thinking they do not pay as much for their QB .

    Good post. Your point about factoring in QB compensation is very well taken. The only minor quibble I might have is that Kitna looked great yesterday against Dallas quarterbacking a team worse than ours. Carr looked lousy against Dallas. I also recall that Kitna did a decent job in Cincinnati before giving way to Palmer, the team's golden child. At this point in time for me, decent at low cost >>> mediocre at high cost, IMHO.

    I'd have to disagree with you on Carolina, Green Bay, and Washington. Carolina has Jake Delhomme who is a better QB than Carr is. Washington has had Jason Campbell on the bench for a few years now and should start next season as the #1 QB. And Green Bay has Brett Favre who is a better QB than Carr even if he's a decade older. They also have Aaron Rodgers waiting in the wings.
