    I just had a question. I've been thumbing through all the posts on all the threads and no matter the subject Carr comes up. O.k. the question, Why would you want to get rid of Carr and replace him with Bledsoe,Plummer,Garcia, or Culpepper. Seriously do you think any of these guys are better? Bledsoe,well self-explanatory he's horrible, Plummer has had one good season and was benched the next. Garcia is almost 37 and Culpepper is not healthy and looks to be injury prone. So you say bring one of these guys in and draft a rookie. Why not keep Carr put a healthy running back and O-line around him and still get rookie. Then if the rookie or Rosenfel's takes Carr's place so be it. I just can't see trying to fix a "problem" with a problem.

    Well, the fact is carr is not going to be here sitting on the bench. He will either be traded to another team, released, or he will stay and start next season. We may have a better qb on the roster, but they will never get the chance with dc here. If he goes, we have a true qb competition. If he stays, he will be given the job again. No doubt about it in my mind.

    The only two I have seen taken seriously are Garcia and Plummer. Garcia still has some moxy, as we saw this year, and Plummer's best year was with Kubes. The reason is because Carr can't handle the position. You can let one of these guys play for a year while a young guy learns. I'd do the same behind Rosenfels. Why keep a problem who you have to hide behind others when a better QB might all of a sudden make the O-line and RB better?

    Why be sorry. You haven't had your crack at the whip yet. How much more life force can be drainded from the cadaver at this point in the only thing that is questionable in your choice of topics. But dig in. One more can't hurt.
    If you throw them another oportunity, I'm sure they'll rejoice at the chance to pick at the cadaver.

    The problem with Carr is his price tag.

    If you get the same production or better with a lot less money spent, that should be a better deal.

    I dont want any of those guys. They are all over or on the hill.

    Rosenfelds i think will do a great job. Really really do. And i heard Kubes describing him as a real leader and the team really gravitates to him. That's what we need a Leader and that most of all is what Carr is lacking (oh yeah and pocket presence).

    You can see it in the preseason where we won! For the first time we were 3-1 in pre and i think that's why i personally was so disappointed. And guess what game we lost in pre season the one david paid.


    So keep the over the hill gang. Let Sage play and get a decent draft pick who can be developed.

    Bledsoe especially does not fit this system. We need atleast a FAIRLY mobile QB for the rollouts,etc.

    Are you kidding me? Garcia? Really?

    They only way I want to get another QB, is if we trade Carr for a 1st or high 2nd round pick.

    Either stick with Sage/David, or trade Carr and bring in a rookie to learn from Sage.

    What's up with Quinton Porter? Any guy that Kubiak picks deserves some looking into. Anyone know how he looks in camp? Might be his ace in the hole.
    And another thing, get Alex Gibbs in here!

    I'm not sold on the idea that David will not be a Texan next year. I understand Kubiak is being Coy about the situation, and David didn't look like an All Pro this year, but who expected him to??

    Far as I know David has done everything Kubiak has asked him to and remains coachable. If he'd draw up some crossing patterns that challenges the defense... about who they'll cover, then maybe we can get some wide open recievers downfield, and David will throw them the ball..... if they are the first read that is.

    Or if the WR would get some seperation he'd throw them the ball..... if they are the first read.

    I'm not a David Carr fan, but I can't imagine anyone thinking he would have done better than what he did...... Especially if he looked at all the tape he said he did, and talked football with David like he said he did before giving him that big bonus.

    Tell you what........ I'm pretty disappointed in this QB guru. I think I'll go start another thread.

    You do realize that will happen when :pigfly: ?

    Carr's only chance at being traded is to be traded for another player who is also not earning his contract who the Texans think is worth the risk. It is IMHO the ONLY way Carr is traded. Overpaid underachiever for overpaid underachiever. Otherwise, the other teams will just wait till Carr is cut and he becomes a FA. It's all pretty logical when you look at it....that is assuming the Texans dont want Carr back after all.

    we know what the fans want.....TO WIN

    I totally agree with every thing you just said and think (even though Garcia's doing nasty right now) that Garcia's just too old to be insurance to an injury prone Mcnabb or Culpepper (still has the coolest name in NFL history).:marionaner:
