After a while this guy is going to flinch when he hears that bell, regardless of whether he gets hit or not.

Replace that bell with the word "HUT" and that guy with David Carr.

There's your problem.


Exactly. That's why (homerism alert) I think Green Bay would be an excellent fit. Say Favre plays a couple more years -- Carr has plenty of time to wait for our young Oline to gain experience and to wear the red jersey in practice. He can get used to throwing the ball again without being buried.

After a year or two of mind regeneration, he could be a quality QB for Green Bay.

i thought GB wants to keep Aaron and that they are not trading him for Moss as they are saying that he would be their future :-?

anyway, the latest rumor is that Carr might go to Oakland in exchange for Moss. B-)

If Schaub pans out, I'd love to see Moss lined up alongside AJ. They really got boned on the deal though, I would have liked to see them move Carr and get Norwood or something out of it. Although I doubt Atlanta would take Carr and his contract it would have been interesting. In any case, two 2nd rnd picks and a first rnd swap is a little much for an unproven QB in my opinion.

I find it very funny that Carr gets all the sympathy but Joey didn't. They are very similar situations. Drafted 1 and 2. Both with bad offensive lines, young RB(DD/KJ), young WRs(AJ/Roy). The stats are:
David -- 75 starts -- 60% -- 59 TDs -- 65 INT
Joey -- 66 starts -- 55.2% -- 72 TDs -- 77 INT

I've been saying that for years about Harrington. I even drafted him a couple of years back in my Keeper. He was a Keeper Rule casualty off of my team, but he certainly was not the only problem in Detroit.

Excerpted from a an Adam Schefter article on nfl.com:

Where Carr surfaces is an intriguing subplot. It doesn't look like Oakland, which expressed no interest in trading for Carr and is considering drafting LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell. But it also should be pointed out that Raiders coach Lane Kiffin was on the Fresno State coaching staff when Carr starred there. If Kiffin wants Carr, it could change the Raiders' interest in him.

Minnesota, Detroit and Cleveland are searching for quarterbacks, and any could take a flyer on Carr. But there doesn't seem to be an obvious landing spot for Carr, at least not now. When and if he is released, the circumstances would change, and a team such as the Vikings would become even more intrigued. But only after Carr is released.

They just announced Schaub as the starter for next year! 8-o

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070322/ap_ ... s_schaub_2

Yikes...what a turnaround for the Texans. I really don't think Carr was that bad...he's never had much of a chance to prove himself thanks to getting sacked every other down.

I wonder where he'll end up if he gets cut...plenty of teams who still need a good starting QB. Problem is that most of those teams also have cruddy lines... :-o

I think Carr is very servicable in the right offense. He doesnt have a huge arm though, and that will hurt him.

MIN could be a landing spot, but they have more of a "go deep" offense and I dont know if he would fair any better there. CLE maybe?

Not a bad QB draft.. bad teams drafting QBs. Houston overpaid for a guy that has little NFL experience. He will get sacked just like Carr did, he'll fumble just like Carr did, and he'll lose just like Carr did..

Houston definitely looks like bafoons for passing on Reggie and making this trade.. are they really trying to get better ????????
