    If I offered you any of these guys straight up for Carr, who would you take?

    Bears: Chad Hutchinson
    Bengals: Carson Palmer
    Bills: J.P. Losman
    Broncos: Jake Plummer
    Browns: Trent Dilfer
    Bucs: Brian Griese
    Cardinals: Kurt Warner
    Chargers: Drew Brees
    Chiefs: Trent Green
    Colts: Peyton Manning
    Cowboys: Drew Bledsoe
    Dolphins: Gus Frerotte
    Ealges: Donovan McNabb
    Falcons: Michael Vick
    Giants: Eli Manning
    Jaguars: Byron Leftwich
    Jets: Chad Pennington
    Lions: Joey Harrington / Jeff Garcia
    Niners: Alex Smith
    Packers: Brett Favre
    Panthers: Jake Delhomme
    Patriots: Tom Brady
    Raiders: Kerry Collins
    Rams: Marc Bulger
    Ravens: Kyle Boller
    Redskins: Patrick Ramsey
    Saints: Aaron Brooks
    Seahawks: Matt Hasselbeck
    Steelers: Ben Roethlisberger
    Titans: Steve McNair
    Vikings: Daunte Culpepper

    ..........

    For Sure:
    Manning
    McNabb
    Culpepper

    Maybe:
    Brady
    Vick
    Green

    No Way:
    Favre (too old)
    McNair (too old & beat up)
    Hutchinson
    Losman
    Dilfer
    Griese
    Warner
    Bledsoe
    Frerotte
    Eli Manning (unproven)
    Harrington
    Smith (unproven)
    Boller
    Ramsey
    Brooks

    The rest would be a push, so I wouldn't trade for them either. So out of 31 QBs, there's only six I would even think about taking over Carr.

    I would take boller.
    In order to guarantee a high draft spot to get a new quarterback and no serious cap hit toget rid of boller.

    Otherwise, I would keep Carr.

    Palmer, Brees, Green, Manning, McNabb, Vick, E.Manning, Leftwich, Pennington, Favre, Brady, Roethlisberger, McNair, Culpepper...

    Not to try to be a total arse, but IMHO, I would take all fo these guys over Carr...

    Manning
    McNabb
    Culpepper
    Brady
    Vick

    David has all the tools to be an elite QB. If they can protect him better I think he'll have a great season. There's no shame to having a guy better than you that's been doing it longer and with better teams.

    I'd hate for you to be my GM...why would you ever take Favre or McNair over Carr? In their prime, yes...not now.

    And Eli Manning has done nothing, so other than his name, I don't see why you would take him over Carr either.

    For sure I'd take Manning, Culpepper McNabb and Brady. I love Carr and think that he can be good... if not better than all of these QBs... the numbers just dont show it as of yet. Vick is an amazing athlete and if we would of come into the league a year earlier he would be wearing a Texans uniform. He's just not an amazing QB yet. Last year he did have a career high in completion percentag... something around 51%. That's just not gonna get it done. Pennington remindes me a lot of Carr. There's just something about him that I dont like... cant really put my finger on it. I also think that Ramsey could end up being an elite QB in the NFL when given stability with the coaching staff and a few more weapons on offense.
    To be honest though, I dont believe even the Elite QBs could of done much of a better job than Carr has done with this offense over the last few years. Manning and Brady would of been on their backs more than Carr. Culpepper and McNabb would of been interesting to watch try and run our offense with 11 defenders pulling at their shirttails.

    Amen! Although not the best in the NFL, we're fortunate to have him... a class act who has remained healthy even though he's been pretty much naked every week in his first 3 seasons.

    As his protection grows, so will his confidence, leadership, and QB rating. I really believe this is inevitable, can't wait. :drool:

    my thoughts exactly, I was fixin to blast him but when I compared his stats vs Carr's first year stats, E. Manning's were not that bad. But then again the Giants were not a first year expansion team either.

    #1. Vick
    #2. Brady
    #3. Manning
    #4. Culpepper

    Carson Palmer, and Ben Rothlisberger are close, but I keep Carr.

    Certainly:
    P. Manning
    McNabb
    Culpepper

    Possibly:
    Plummer
    Green
    Delhomme

    No Chance:
    Vick
    Brunell
    Testaverde

    If anyone wants a Vick at QB, just get a stud RB and move him to QB and he might even have better passing accuracy than Vick.

    Hell with the folks they have around Manning most QGs would look great also, not to take anything away from Peyton. Don't forget we have been building a franchise around a young qb so he is going to develop slower that someone like manning. I really don't see Manning waking in the middle of the night dreaming about being sacked AGAIN.

    Carr had had a MUCH MUCH tougher introduction into the league that Manning did.
