    i know im probably gonna killed for this but, no ones brought it up, trade our pick @ 18 for a guy who knows nothing about baseball(lol).A player who has seen the worst o-line in the business and maybe something transpires. He has an arm, young for the future, and he wont have to move very far. [IMG]

    IMO, any team would be insane to trade a pick -- especially a high one -- for Carr.

    Now, if he's released, I'd be open to bringing him as a backup and a potential replacement for Bledsoe. I think he's nearing the "ruined" point, but isn't quite there and does have a heck of an arm, solid attitude (though verging on cocky, minus the results), and is mobile.

    I can't imagine a team trading a first for him, though. How many teams could he even start on?

    Id do it and not think twice about it. Carr is very talented, he just needs some help.

    How many people said this about Troy Aikman after two demoralizing years?

    If Houston agrees to do this maybe....Houston is probably the one team that has had a real idea as to where Carr really is. I'm sure they know full well how good he looks when he has time in the pocket, being as though they see him practice daily.

    Do you think it was Carr being a bust or Capers failing to build an offensive line in his tenure with the team? I would go with the latter. Houston has alot invested in Carr, and they sure aren't the only ones to realize that it's the amount that he gets hit that hurts his performance more than anything else. If they get Bush or some O-Line help, this could be a team that finally starts realizing the potential of Carr and Andre Johnson....wait, they have no defense (31st in the NFL)

    Trust me, I live in Houston and have seen his act up close for 4 years -- NO.

    I'm not sure I'd put Carr in the same category as Aikman, besides my biggest question would be durability. Poor guys taking a beating which I think has cost him at least 2 seasons...

    But Troy never had four demoralizing years to start his career. :)

    Yeah but that wasnt an expansion team Troy was starting for either. Had it been, it may have very well been 4 demoralizing years.

    And Troy has even said himself that there were times when he felt that it could have taken him 5 years in the league before he got "it".

    If Houston were to give up on him and draft another QB, Carr could easily be had for a 2...no way a 1....They would have set the market by their willingness to trade him.

    David Carr, if he is traded will probably go to a team that has a lot of pieces in place like KC, Chicago, or Minnesota who could throw him in and get results. I wouldnt be opposed to trading for him as long as it isnt a first day pick. Then we trade Romo or Henson and pick up another late rounder.

    Carr, with the right system and talent can produce really well IMO. He just needs to get out of the football black hole we all call the Houston Texans.

    I guess my point with Carr is that I just think his stock, right now, is at its absolute lowest. That's why I can't see a team trading a first-round pick for him. Look at Harrington. Both guys still have "potential" -- heck, didn't Harrington finish the year with one of his best performances? -- but I can't imagine any team investing a 1st-round pick for a 25-year old quarterback that hasn't really had a good season under his belt.

    someone delete this or merge this with the thread in the draft zone.
    I think this is a ridiculous idea. a 1st rd pick for a former #1 who has taken a beating and is not evne close to Bledsoe.
