    My prediction for David Carr

    He's going to be the next Rich Gannon. Gannon spent the first seven years of his career failing, being cut, and being a nobody. Granted, David Carr had a lot more hype coming into the league and was picked much higher, but so far it appears to me like Carr's potential has just not been realized and it'll take one good coach and team duo to help Carr succeed at his natural limit.

    For Gannon, it was Gruden and the Raiders. For Carr, who knows, but seeing him play twice a year for his whole career (I'm a Colts fan so I see him play as much or more than anyone not in Houston) I'm convinced that he was not the problem, the rest of the system was. If I had 1.8 seconds to throw the ball because my line couldn't hold a High School juvie squad, I wouldn't be putting up great numbers and lots of victories either. Not to mention who was on that offense to help besides Andre Johnson?

    I think in a few years we'll be seeing Carr in a Pro Bowl or two, probably leading an NFC team to some moderate success. If not, well, I guess I was wrong.

    Unfortunately, it might take a little bit and people will expect results FAST. He still has alot of bad habits from the Texans sucking. Still, I think they're fixable with a coaching staff that works hard with their players. A team like the Jets would be a perfect fit for him if it wasn't Pennington.

    Still, his situation in Texas a an all time crap O-line, no defense, inconsistent at best running game, and one WR...and he was told to win a Super Bowl NOW.

    No he won't. He will suck.

    They both dumped him so what's the difference. He was recently added to the CFL protected list because they believe his NFL career is over. Carr will follow suit in about a year.

    I completely agree, he's another Joey Harrington = no intangibles. Carr will be a one and out with whoever signs him. That 1 year and out of the league.

    Is he wanting alot of money thats the real question? Teams aren't going to pay alot for somebody who did bad with the Texans.

    His mechanics aren't necessarily bad, just different.

    I think he wants to sit a year or 2 and regain his confidence in his play...his mechanics are apparently shot...and when he feels the rush he either dumps the ball off or falls to the ground in the fetal position....I still think the team that gets him will get a quality player....Houston just had too much riding on him for him to succeed....every play was scrutinized and he had to do it all....and worst of all, he was never going to be Vince Young to Houstonians...As of now, Carr isnt a good QB, he is slighty below average...but with proper coaching and rebuilt confidence, he can be a very good starter I think....and probably a good replacement for Delhomme or Hasselbeck, should he sign with one of those teams....if he goes to Cleveland/Oakland/Miami...I dont think he will last...

    I'm also suprised that nobody has signed him yet. The best place I think where he should end up is Miami or somebody who could use a steady back up.

    Kansas City, St. Louis, Green Bay, Buffalo, and Cleveland would all be fine landing spots for him.
    Tampa Bay and Miami are bottomless pits, but Cleveland is not? Huh?

    The lukewarm interest in David Carr really does surprise me somewhat. I thought some teams would step in and pick up the kid as soon as he was cut. He has a lot of issues, to be sure, but there's also talent there and he's still young enough. I think he might have to wait until the Trent Green shoe drops, and then we see who's left from the bunch.

    Let's see anyone trying to develop anticipation skills behind the sieve the texans called their offensive line.

    I saw a lot of good passes get deflected off his wide receivers and dropped, not to mention the line woes.
