    If Carr is let go, what team or teams would be interested in taking him?

    Raiders? Tampa Bay?

    Who do you think?

    Maybe the Raiders, but they will probably grab a QB in the draft. Every other team has a QB with more production and/or potential than Carr at a much cheaper price.

    In a trade? I doubt anyone. I thought I read in an article (i beleive is still on the front page of the bullpen) that the other team would have to pay him 11.25 mil over the next 2 years....who would do that?

    They still have to pay him...you think Chicago or any of those teams can afford Carr and fill whatever other needs they have?

    The Raiders might be a good fit.

    "The last time the Raiders picked a QB in the first round, it was a disaster, as Todd Marinovich soon found his true calling as a pot-smoking skateboarder."

    It's clear that the Raiders prefer a veteran quarterback, and the trade would return him to his California roots. If they gave up a second- or third-round pick for him, the Raiders would still retain their number one pick, which they could then use on Calvin Johnson.

    HOWEVER, I doubt this is likely to happen. I don't think Kubiak is ready to give up on Carr. JMO.

    Very doubtful Buffalo would look at him. Losman had one of the best 2nd halfs of the season of any QB. Unlike Carr, when he started hearing 'put up or shut up' he actually rose to the challenge and showed that he was worthy of the starting job.

    I doubt Cleveland would be interested after witnessing Carr's performance last week first hand. It's pretty much a parallel move going from Frye to Carr and when you factor in the financial cost of a Carr, it would never happen. Cleveland will have either Brady Quinn, Russell, or Troy Smith as their Starting QB and all everyone of them will come with aa huge sticker price. That even further muddys the water for Cleveland wanting/getting Carr.

    Chicago?!?!?! You mean the 13-3 Chicago Bears?!?! So you think a team that is 13-3 is going to even think about switching QBs to a guy who has a roughly 25% winning percentage and has a huge financial price tag?

    Green Bay? Well, if Farv-ruh decides to retire, all bets are off. They wouldn't have to pay Favre so Carr's salary (even slightly reworked) could fit in there. Personally, I feel GreenBay could not look their fans in the face and pass off Carr as a true heir to Favre. Still probably the 3rd most likely potential trade destination for Carr.

    Which brings us to the Lions and Raiders. Both teams 'supposedly' have talent galore but havent been able to put it together and produce wins. Sounds pretty familiar, huh? Carr would be 'perfect' for these teams.

    I actually think he will just be a June salary cap casualty and his contract will go up in flames. Then he will get picked up by a contender as a backup. A lot of contending teams are losing their backups to possible starting roles this year. Carr as an inexpensive FA backup may sound attractive to many contending teams. Carr already has his money, he could then go to a 'better' situation and possibly blossom and grow while under a contending veteran QB....Lord knows, it ain't happenin' here

    just mho

    No one but the Raiders or Lions would be ignorant enough to do it.

    Well, if you can't trade Carr, you can always take him over to Houston Auto Auction on the Gulf Freeway. They auction worthless pieces of junk to the highest bidder every Wednesday afternoon..

    I don't think that lightning will strike twice, but David Carr is the kind of reach that Jerry Jones would normally make.

    donate him to Houston Can Academy. If the Carr can get them to and from work, its a salary cap errr tax write-off. At least we get some mileage out of him that way.

    After the Quincy Carter debacle, Jones should have just relieved himself of any talent evaluation duties.

    These Carr to car* analogies are fantastic! So fresh, whimsical, and imaginative. Pure genius.




    *Carr to car <====== one "r" like an automobile - who has the creativity to come up with this stuff?

    The truth hurts. Look at the guy with the Texans construction hat with all the medals on it.
    Guy is a hardcore fan, but does he look happy or better yet entertained?

    Dude looks like he is at an insurance seminar.....classic photo of the 'Texans Experience'.....there is even a guy chatting on the phone....brilliant photographer

    That one picture basically sums up the whole season of the Texans. No direction. No excitement. No competitive spirit. Just a flatlining team with bored fans

    Personally, I wouldn't bring a sign to a game due to it infringing on the rights of the people behind me to see the game...but I support the protest...Power To The People

    There may have been just a hint of sarcasm on the face of the sledgehammer, yes.
