    Rosenfels looked good the few games he played in why not give him a try? I guess there trying to get their money worth out of carr wreck.

    Hes got a broken hand. That usually puts a damper on a QBs ability to start in the NFL.

    In the short term, Sage broke his hand and out for the season. As for 2007, it is anybody's guess.

    i dont think it matters if he was the bionic man. mcnair wants carr and carr it is unless he had a season ending or career ending injury we will continue to see David "Check three down and Out" Carr.

    I bet even McNair's golfing buddies are giving him hell. He has already shown he doesn't care what the fans think but maybe now that his friends (and in some cases Texans investors) are gonna be riding his butt, maybe he will do something. Geez, it practically took a boardroom coup for McNair to get rid of Capers. Here is to all his drinking/golfing buddies giving him hell for how embarassing the Texans and specifically their decision making has been.

    Sadly based on McNair's recent statements, it will probably take an act of god for him to get rid of Lil' Davey....

    Sage would be an upgrade over Carr but we all knew that already....McNair just hasnt gotten the memo yet

    If you only had two QB's on the team why would you have your backup playing on special teams where he might have to make a tackle and hurt himself? Not a good deal.

    The punter (Stanley) had hurt his hand so he had two fingers taped together. He's the usual holder. It was a very long, weird chain of events.

    I would like to propose a ban on all lame and millions-of-times-recycled wordplays involving projection of Carr as an automobile.

    They weren't that funny five years ago and they sure as hell aren't funny now.

    I would try to trade Carr away...

    Give Rosenfels a Shot and pick up Troy Smith with our first rounder.. Let Rosenfels play out the season and let Smith watch this season and see how things turn out.. at the very very worst Smith learns from Rosenfels and gets ready in a year or two.

    Even thought it's been explained, I find it odd, too.

    I have to hand it to Sage, though. That was one helluva' special teams play.

    I seriously doubt they'll try to trade David.

    We look dumb enough already, passing Lienart & Cutler, and giving David $8 million plus his salary....... then dump him the next year for a second day pick, or a second string LB

    If anybody has tapes of Sage playing this year, they might want to check something out. I'd like to know if Sage drops less deep on 5 and 7 step drops than Carr. I have heard this from a friend who is pretty knowledgable about such things, but I don't have any of those games saved anymore.

    Maybe the line does block better for Sage, and maybe it is because he makes the tackles' jobs easier by not giving the DE's as good as an angle as Carr does.

    Is this a piece of the mystery?

    I watched for that earlier in the year...... I don't believe it is true, not by much, if any at all.

    But the problem with Carr's 5 & 7 step drops, is that 5 is more like 6, and 7 is more like 8...... so were Sage is ready to come up, and make his throw, David still has half a step to go.... then he bounces on that half step, before he starts back up.
