Source: Espn - Clayton Essentially talks about several QB's on the Hot seat this year starting with "Joey" from detroit, but Mr Carr's name also came up as expected it would being this is a contract year basically. IMO - Alot of folks will be scrutinized this year on the team from top to bottom. Now hold on - That said it doesnt mean Mr. Carr is driving off the "Texans" lot so to speak, nor does it mean he has not improved every year thus far. IMO He has to keep up the pace this year especially. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=clayton_john&id=2101524&CMP=OTC-DT9705204233 Tidbit's on Carr from the article - Other quarterbacks on the hot seat heading into this season include Aaron Brooks of the Saints, Brian Griese of the Bucs, David Carr of the Texans and A.J. Feeley of the Dolphins. Omitted from the list are Kyle Boller of the Ravens and Rex Grossman of the Bears because their judgment days won't come until 2006 or later; they simply haven't had enough starts to make a full determination. Carr's case is interesting and should result in a happy ending. His numbers are coming close to playoff level -- 61.2 percent completions, 7.58 yards per attempt, 16 touchdowns and an 83.5 quarterback rating. His contract has a buy-back option at the end of the year and the Texans are expected to execute the option or negotiate a long-term extension. Though the Texans won a franchise-best seven games last year, much more is expected of Carr. His record is 14-29 as a starter and, barring a major setback, high expectations have been set.
