    Whether you hated or loved DC when he was here, he was our QB and the face of our NFL franchise for the first 5 years.
    Carr is getting his first start with his new team in Carolina today, and its not being shown locally ! Instead my OLine TV guide (and hard-copy guide) shows SF entertaining the Seahawks. That's not bad since we might get a Babin or Joppru sighting, but I'm much more interested in Carr's performance today.
    I know it was a late in the week decision to insert Carr as the starter (due to an injury to the reg QB), but maybe Fox will just switch over to the TB-Carolina game, another late start in the NFC ?

    I think 5 years was enough for Houston having to watch this guy.

    Why do you want to see Carr? This isn't like Montana Going to the Chiefs. Who cares!!! He moved on, we moved on.

    Well according to NFL.com, Carr played 1 drive then Delhomme came in.


    Edit: nevermind, they corrected it.

    Even though the love or hatred for Carr still exists for many, sentimentally speaking I'm basically indifferent about whether he succeeds or fails with his new team. And I'm very happy with Schaub, an obvious upgrade over DC IMO.
    But I won't deny I'm curious to see what Carr looks like with another team, in a new system. Actually very curious.

    I was just messing with you man. I agree. I'm kind of wondering what he'll look like. Any way, did you just see the play that Carr dove for the the first Down?

    You guys are missing a barnburner, Carr has 9 yards on 11 attempts passing.

    Beat me to it. The play by play looks eerily similar.

    1-10-CAR 22 (11:37) 8-D.Carr pass incomplete deep right to 89-S.Smith.
    2-10-CAR 22 (11:30) 8-D.Carr pass incomplete short right to 89-S.Smith (31-P.Buchanon).
    3-10-CAR 22 (11:26) 8-D.Carr scrambles left tackle to CAR 37 for 15 yards (23-J.Phillips).
    1-10-CAR 37 (10:40) 26-D.Foster up the middle to CAR 39 for 2 yards (95-C.Hovan).
    2-8-CAR 39 (10:04) 8-D.Carr pass short middle to 89-S.Smith to CAR 43 for 4 yards (55-D.Brooks).
    3-4-CAR 43 (9:27) 8-D.Carr pass incomplete deep right to 18-D.Carter.

    FWIW, he did trade the white gloves for some black ones. Guess the Minnie Mouse comment got him.

    I'm watching the game on Sunday Ticket... it's pretty funny. The announcers are all like "why won't they attack the middle of the field, that is how you beat this type of defense" while Carr throws a 3 yard sideline pass for an incompletion.

    shouldn't you accidently get 100 yards passing with Steve Smith on your team?

    Dave always killed AJ's fantasy worth too...hell, many fans here were dogging AJ because they were making excuses for Carr. Good riddance.
