    Carr is running out of time. I agree with guys like Rocket River & DaDakota that this is a make or break year for Carr and he could very well be gone next year.

    My friend pointed out the irony
    of Carr getting bench the 1st game against VY
    also
    To me
    He has his worse game .. while have the best Rushing game of the year
    [After so many folx blamed it on the poor running game]

    So you agree with me? Get him a better offensive line, maybe?

    as someone on the radio said, it was telling how carr was all by himself on the sideline after being benched. I want say he was sulking, but it looked like he could have reacted better.

    i partially agree with you, the fact that he has potential....

    i don't think a better offensive line will help him to reach that potential..

    i do think he needs another frest start with a different team to realize his full potential

    David has now been in the league five years. He's either got it or he don't.

    DUDES. New coaching staff. New system. Barely 7th game of the season. Sage comes in fresh. Of course he's going to do well. All of those quarterbacks do. I don't want to believe this is a BRADY vs. BLEDSOE thing, though... :(

    If David had waaaayyy (i mean, way) many more INTs than TDs, I could see ya'll with a point here. Such is not the case. Sage needed to come in to fill in for a really bad day for CARR. David was banged up. Sage was not. Fresh legs, fresh mind, no controversy for him.

    Sage isn't supposed to upstage Carr like he did today.

    i hate to say this, but i'm off the Carr bandwagon. i already said why in the Carr is done thread so, ughh, i'm so tired of this ****.

    god, i stand up for this guy every weekend

    he really messed up today,this should have been a W

    Last chance against the Giants, even if i think he has all the talent in the world, if sage is best for the team, let him play

    as a strong DC supporter, im giving him one more chance

    Potential...Hell, we've been saying that since we drafted him...As Jerry G used to say..."Not For Long"...as in Carr won't last the rest of the season with the way he's been playing...Sage will give him a run for his money, all that money...

    Carr has thrown for 0 TDs and 4 Ints in games after a win. The cowboys have a good defense but there's no excuse against the Titans. His pass into quadruple coverage tells me a lot of thing.

    This is Carr's 5th year, he's had excuse after excuse, many have been legit, but I'm tired of this crap. I don't think Carr can win big with this team, that's why I wanted VY...but the Texans need to seriously start thinking about replacing him.

    I didn't watch the pre-season, so I didn't understand the love for Rosenfels. Now I do. He's good at everything that Carr is bad at. He's got great pocket presence, and is really good at buying time for more to develop. But what the supporters are ignoring is that what Carr does really well (pass accurately), Sage doesn't do well. Many of his completions were just barely within the reach of his receivers. His 18/25 could have easily turned into a 10/25 with either a few inches on his passes or an off-day for Johnson or Moulds. I'm not sure which is better, but it's definitely not clear-cut.

    VY will be in the playoffs before Carr QB's the Texans in a playoff game.

    So sit back enjoy your Carr and be patient, it will take Kubiak all season to realize Carr isn't the answer (although he is starting to see it). Then he will bring in a QB to compete with Carr next season. Then after next season he will give up on Carr and we will be back to square one as an expansion franchise.

    Have a long wait... you patient Texan fans.

    I am a very impatient Texan fan because I wanted us to draft the QB from UT.
