    Nothing really all that telling here, but an interesting article nonetheless.

    Billy Joe Tolliver is ranked with Carr... I think I am going to start the Lord's Prayer right now.

    I guess I can play spin doctor.. I have also seen our defense NOT step up and make the key stop in the forth quarter to give us a chance

    we have seen where we need a key 3rd down pickup in the 4th to keep the clock running and sadly we didn't

    ...and Kent Graham is ranked with John Elway. Like this is something to take seriously? Good gawd.

    This is one of those times when you have a theory, apply it, look at the results and say bad Mr. Theory and smack it on the head. Useless results both ends.

    It is to bad that Palmer's magic did not rub off on Carr like it did on Couch.:mario:

    Wow....... Aaron Brooks, Tim Couch, and Kordell Stewart rated in the top ten....

    yet none of them are gauranteed starters..... heck, two of the three will definitely not start.

    In all fairness to Carr...... as many comeback situations he's been in is probalby diluting his stats.

    Houston, again.
    Soooo, I guess this is another of those Carr threads that are constantly started by all the Carr lovers as KT keeps saying is what happens all the time. Couldn't POSSIBLY be a "Let's start one to be able to take a shot at Carr thread". Nah, no one starts those, just always those pesky Carr lovers gushing about that piece of road apples QB, and a certain band of folks has to maintain world balance by responding. Yup, guess that's what is happening.

    Folks who rely on Brooks, Couch and Stewart as examples should "probalby" not throw stones or the only "gauranteed" result will be their glass house falling.

    There is no way Sage will replace Carr except for injury.

    I have looked through this guy's career, and Carr is a better QB.

    And I didn't think there would be any more new and interesting topics until the depth chart was released prior to camp.

    Are we surprised that Brett Favre is not in the top 10?

    Hopefully this coaching staff will have the good sense to pull Carr when he's playing poorly or they are way behind. I never understood why Capers refused to bench the guy.

    I agree. A benching couldn't have been worse than all the pounding he was taking.
