    Just heard the same thing. Bob McNair said he would not interfere if the coaching staff decided to trade David Carr and that he would agree with whatever decision they came up with.

    VERY interesting. Isn't so hard to imagine someone else at QB for the Texans? It's needed no doubt, but it is a little strange. I wonder who will be the starter next year.

    OMG...if only we could get the Raiders 2nd & 4th round picks for Carr.:marionaner: Maybe they would go for it. Al Davis does prefer previously failed veteran QBs to try to mold into something great...nevermind the whole overplayed California thing.

    Please, please, please **crosses fingers** please, please, please....

    C'mon make it happen Smith.:yahoo:

    Hey back off!! I can dream can't I?!:hides:

    I hope we don't just give him away... we need at least something in return, and when I say something I am not saying a backup, or a 5th round pick.


    By the way everyone... do not be surprised when Carr flourishes somewhere else.

    This would be good. I would take a 3rd or 4th easily. Let's just get it done and start back on the road to recovery.

    Agree, but I'll tell you what will happen. A vet or someone else will come in, do well and because they know how to function in a less than perfect situation you will hear people say, "only if Carr had this line, etc" when in reality it is the QB making plays.

    Oh my....does this means I'm right again?? McNair had something to do with the draft from the start. This is another reason we didn't get VY or RB whom later contributed to successful teams and will be a problem later for us... Ha, Ha, Ha....the whole NFL laughs again at Houston. And finally this why we are all sitting at home watching what McNair passed up make the NFC championship......thanks Bob you are real un-proven business man once again.....Keep up the good work!!:marionaner:

    Joey Harrington was traded for a 6th round pick last year to the Dolphins. We probably wouldn't get much more than a 4th. I would take Jake Plummer. He's a better option than Carr and he had success with Kubiak. I don't think it's coincidence that after Kubiak left Denver, they weren't as successful on offense this year.

    I don't think anyone will be suprised if carr suceeds somewhere else. I really do like carr, but it's time for a change of scenery with him. Carr has all the tools to be a successful qb, but the sad part about it is it will never happen in a TEXANS uniform. I would wish him all the success and actually root for whatever team he goes to, but it is time for us to move on.

    no way. you could get a player of bell's ilk in the 3rd anyway and denver isnt going to pay 7 mil for a guy to backup cutler. they might as well keep plummer.

    Why would we bring in a qb who threw more interceptions in 8 games then carr did in 16?

    I guess it's impossible that that could happen. Hmn.....Drew Breese comes to mind. Or hey, not a QB, but how about Gaffney and the Patriots? Best thing that ever happened to him to be let out of here. He might be playing in a Super Bowl, he was so horrid.


    Some of this is just simply amazing. Bob McNair not being a business man? Geez....
