The problem with carr is that everyone knew he would be released anyway, so why bother giving something away for him


That's a good point. I was thinking before they made the deal they might have tried to move Carr but maybe they didn't want to gamble if they didn't get Schaub, or perhaps the league knew this was coming anyway. Who knows, it's the Texans.

Man Houston is doing odd stuff this offseason. First they can't deal Carr away and then they show their hand (it was obvious carr would be released) by trading for schaub. They WAY overpaid for schaub. They release DD (or DW?) without getting something for him. Seems like they're entering rebuilding phase...even tho nothing was ever really built to rebuild. :-b

That is an ugly outcome for the Texans for the last two years. If Dominic can come back to play I think he would be a perfect fit with the Giants to complement Brandon Jacobs.

IF he can get that knee serviceable, I could see Domanick becoming a Kevin Faulk-type player (he is a great receiver out of the backfield) and, thus, would be a great complement to someone like Brandon Jacobs.

Don't you guys get it? Domanic Davis/Williams' NFL career is OVER. The guy has a degenerative knee condition that is never going to get better. This is why NFL players consider the franchise tag indentured slavery, because without that long term deal and guaranteed money you could be gone in a heartbeat with nothing to show for it.

NFL = Not for long.


BTW: 2 to 1 odds for anyone who is willing to lay down $20, that David Carr will not be a starting QB for any NFL team on opening day of the 2007 season. Betting ends in 24 hours.

I think the Texans could apply for the laughing stock of the league. First, they pass on Reggie Bush last year, and then they dont sign any quality offensive lineman in Free Agency(they could prolly use 5). Then they trade down 2 spots, plus kick in 2 second round draft picks for a QB that has proven nothing in the NFL. Some argue he shows promise. 6 TDs and 6 INTs in 16 games over 2 years doesnt mean progress to me. Then they cut Carr instead of making each of them better by competing for the starting job all summer. That offensive line would make Peyton Manning look horrible. I am not a Carr lover, but I dont think Schaub is an upgrade.

So long as Millen has a job that position's been filled.

i really wouldn't mind seeing the chiefs pick up carr if trent is indeed dealt. he would be the most experienced guy on the roster as far as game time goes. with a solid running game and decent o line he could do just as good if not better than croyle/huard.

I gotta disagree with that. Huard showed the ability to do something last year that Carr hasn't shown with any consistency in his entire career. The ability to win football games.

QB isn't the problem in KC. The problem is that the QB doesn't have anyone to throw the ball to.

i'm not going to argue that huard wasn't decent last year because he was and i'm sure he would do a serviceable job but that 11 and 1 td int ratio is making him look a whole lot better than he really is. if he had that much talent he would be riding the bench his whole career.

do i think carr would be some sort of saviour? no but atleast if something were to happen to huard if he ends up starting it wouldn't be on croyle's shoulders only. in the event huard gets down than the backup to croyle would then becomes casey printers. not really a ideal situation.
