    I not much for hyperbole, but this weeks game against the Titans is the biggest of Carr's career. He needs to play the game of his life and "lead" the Texans to victory.

    He also needs to hope that the "D" has his back again this week and can stifle VY.

    There are some in the anti Carr camp who will never be swayed no matter what happens, but this this game will more than likely move people off the fence one way or the other.

    I wish Vince the best of luck in his career, just not this week.

    Go Texans!

    Excellent post. I have been behind Carr for the entirety of his NFL career; however, it is time for him to step up or down. He CANNOT lose to VY at home this year - period.

    This should be the most interesting home game we have had in years.

    In reality, this is just like any other game but I think we all know deep down it is not, at least not for Carr.

    If Carr does not have a good showing and Young does even though it is not fair Carr will be done at the very least with the fans.

    I hate the Titans, and I can't comprehend why any Texan fan would root for an imposing player on another team. But this is what is happening so I guess they only thing I can do is hope the Texans destroy Young and the Titans and Carr has a great day.

    Go Texans!

    Senor I love the Avatar - an all time great movie and that line is just perfect.
    I can just see Kubes saying that and "don't you eyeball me boy"
    Perfect - I needed that laugh this morning

    My man Stan, not only knows avatars, but he aslo knows destiny. Carr's gotta make this game work. Anything less than a solid victory will not set well with the Texan natives. I'm a Carr fan, but I'm first and foremost a Texans fan.

    Go Texans!

    i have to agree. lately, this offense has been bad, but blame the offensive line if you want, but i think carr has alot to do with the way things are going for him. he is going to have to play a great game next week coming off of his 30 some yds passing not factoring the sack yardage. everyone is quick to blame the o-line bc they are indeed the ones that have to protect carr. however, i think its hard when teams blitz constantly bc carr never burns them. if carr was stepping up in the pocket and consistently completeing passes for 10+ yards every time they blitz, then they wont bring as many rushers, making the o-lines task easier. carr is just going to have to man up and make plays next week....and not let vanden bosch get in his head. you know vanden bosch is going to want to have a big game as always, so carr is going to have to man up and stay in the pocket.

    Not really. What he needs to do most of all, is not fumble the ball and don't throw interceptions. I would imagine kubiak will continue to play very conservatively, especially with how he uses Carr. A very average, but mistake free kind of day is what we need from DC this Sunday.

    but i hate this conservative *****. i mean, we are 4-8! why cant we just cut these guys loose so we can salvage some fan support!? seeing as how we have 4 wins and are going nowhere, why not play aggressively. its the only way u are going to keep fans interested and the only way u will really figure anything out about the potential of this team for next season

    I agree Carr needs to step up in the pocket more, or even step to the side sometimes but honestly in the raiders game there was NO POCKET to step up into he got the worst protection he's got all year in that game. and the recievers were covered more often than not. andre knows how to find the soft underneath spot in the cover 2, he needs to learn how to find the seams also. eric winston needs to play guard until he gets his assignments and reads straightened out, he got blown up several times yesterday.

    I agree that in order to win the GAME, this is the recipe for success.

    To win the FANS David needs to do something special.

    I would settle for a victory, but given the climate of most posters this week, a win is not enough.

    Agree with Stan, very important game for Carr. And unfortunately Vince has two aces up his sleeve that David doesn't; a dependable running game and line that gives you more than 2 seconds to throw. Saying that David needs to overcome this and win or he will be as popular as Bud Adams in the Houston Area.

    It's going to be ugly at Reliant next week. I think at least half the stadium will be double-crossing fans who will be rooting for the Titans (i.e. Young). Carr will have a hostile environment in his own house!

    I'd like to see DC rise to the occassion...he is our QB, after all....but I would not be surprised if he tries too hard and comes out flat, too. It's one of those perplexing questions that is born from the inconsistent.

    Hopefully Texans fans will support this team and give them a homefield advantage this week.

    LOUD, PROUD, & TEXAN! :texflag:

    At the very least, the Texans need to win this game. Carr needs the win and a respectable showing, or the Carr bashing will only get worse. I'm not a Carr basher, but I at least realize that.

    He'll have to do a lot more than that...

    I don't think the bashing will stop until David is gone...

    Not only do I not think he's capable of leading us to greener pastures, but he'd have to do a lot of leading to reverse this "Carr sucks" mentality....

    Agreed. I think it's already over for Mr. Carr. This upcoming game might be the biggest of his career, but likely only because he needs to have a good showing so we can shop him around the league. The time for showing what he's made of is over. It's time to move on....

    Carr is going to have to deal with Vince Young fans as well as David Carr haters. About 2/3 of the stadium will be against him.

    I plan on having some buddies join me. My kids stay home for this game. One game of the year I am going to let loose and have a couple of pops. Haven't done that all season. Who wants to bet David Carr gets wind of some of this hate and comes out with an attitude and plays better? I like what Kubiak is doing with him. Challenging him and giving him the business for the rest of the team to see. That fires up guys that Gary aint putting up with this BS.
