    I feel bad for Carr. He never had a chance with those clowns. They could have lined Grimace, Ronald and The Hamburglar up on the line and given him better protection than he got down.

    I could well proved wrong, but I hope i'm not, I'm guessing he lands somewhere and does a great job.

    I wonder if he was due another roster bonus or something for them to cut him and not hold out to get a draft pick. You have to figure they could have gotten a 3rd or 4th rounder for him. Doug Gabriel was a 5th........

    Domanick Williams (Davis) played for Saban, but he is hurt a lot and missed all of last year with a knee injury.

    I wonder what this does to the Dolphins quarterback situation. They can now have Carr for practically nothing. Will they still go for Green? If not, would WE like Carr as a backup?

    Wow. That is pitiful. You pay $8mm to keep a guy around and decide that he is not the guy after just one year.

    We should all bow our heads in a prayer of thanks that Brady/BB/SP are in charge here.

    the problem is the contract most teams know they will eventaully cut them so why give him the same contract when they can sign him as a free agent and negotiate the deal down

    Cousin,
    How about this scenario? The Bears. You can't tell me that Carr is not better than Grossman. He would also have a line and a valid run effort, not to mention a defense. Berrian and Mohammad aren't bad WR either.

    This is all very funny. I'm having an amazingly hard time thinking of a reason as to why Schaub is better than Carr. They just released 2 of their 5 competent players.

    I guess I can see the Davis cut (if his knee is really gone, then I guess he's done)... but I, too, think that Carr is a player. I think that the Chicago, Oakland, MIA, CLE, DET (heck maybe even TB) will be in the mix for his services... I like Cassel, but if we get Carr as a backup, that would just be too much (he's too talented)... I think he'll be starting somewhere next year... I just hope it is NOT BUF, NJY, or MIA!

    HOU... gotta love 'em!

    I have the feeling that David Carr will end up with a team hopefully in the NFC like the Vikings who have a good offensive line and then we can see what he can do I agree with most of the posts in this thread it was not all
    Carr the Texans line was just pitiful when I did get a chance to watch them.

    I must admit that I don't share the Carr love that many have. I think he is n othing more than than a journeyman, a Joey Harrington redux, if you will.

    I won't be surprised at all if he finds a place where he can be moderately successful, maybe even starting out quite good.

    But I will be surprised if he amounts to anything above mediocre.

    I think he is a notch or two better than Harrington and would be a welcome addition if he wants to come play for a REAL football team and learn under the tutelege of a future Hall of Fame quarterback, for about a mill or two a year.

    Good point, Im really surprised that the Bears haven't made any moves with all the veteran QBs available for cheap.

    If Davis's knee isn't shot to hell, I'd grab him. He was an impact player a couple years ago, and looked like a poor man's Marshall Faulk.

    I've watched a lot of Texans games since I'm in their market and I think Carr is in the middle somewhere between the people that think he's nothing and the people that think he could be great with a good OL.

    How many times have we seen Brady get hit all game long and still make the plays to win? Of course Carr has struggled because of the overall poor pass protection but there's been plenty of times he had the protection and just didn't get it done. Great QBs play well when they shouldn't be able to. I've yet to see Carr have that moment that made me think, "Wow, this guy could be really good."

    I think he could do better with another team that has better offensive personnel but IMO he will never live up to being the #1 pick in the draft.

    Well I don't expect him to go back to College so I don't understand where you are going here.

    I don't think we could afford Carr, but wow, would that be some move if we snatched him up, lol. Chicago might have won the SB if they had Carr instead of Gross-man. Carr really hasn't had much of a chance in Houston, they ALWAYS sucked, kind of like Couch in Cleveland, though I do think he is better than Couch was. I really thought Carr was going to be the real deal, Oakland would be crazy not to sign him, he's way more advanced than Aaron Rodgers (rumored to be trade bait for Moss) is. The Raiders could then draft Calvin Johnson, wow.
