Kubiak gave him every chance to prove himself and he didn't. He even dumbed down the offense to give Carr a chance and he still couldn't get it done. It's time for a change and Matt Schaub is the answer. You don't get rave reviews from numerous head coaches and GM's if you aren't worth it. He's definitely worth it.
To all of you Texans fans who jumped off of the bandwagon because of this trade, please DON'T jump back on when Matt Schaub and Co. are playoff bound. Us loyal fans don't want you aboard.
Are you really praising 42 sacks ??? Thats absurd !! thats almost 3/game !!!
Come on now... I don't care how good you are... you would be checking down to the RB and FB to get rid of the ball so you can get any positive yardage ! You can't be serious to think that Peyton Manning or Drew Brees would be half the QB they are w/o a quality OL ??
Just an FYI... Carr finished #8 most Sacks in the league... NONE of the QB's in the Top 10 made the playoffs...
Sacks arent an indication of mobility either considering that Michael Vick had more sacks than David Carr...
And if sacks is an indication of quality.. I wouldnt mind car... Carson Palmer, Marc Bulger and Ben Roethlisberger are all in the TOP 10 in the league in sacks... so please don't think that because Carr was sacked 41 times this past season that its because he is a bad QB...
