Perhaps, look at what Mike Martz did to Kurt Warner. I remember when he broke out on the scene, football people would rave about his toughness and his ability to stay in the pocket and hit the receiver (See his TD pass to Bruce in the Super Bowl for example) He also had one of the quickest releases ever.

Then he started getting hit too much and is a shell of his former self. Martz was on his way to doing the same thing with Bulger as well. You can't drop a guy back 50 times each game and expect him to still be standing in 16 weeks.

Maybe Schuab will provide something fresh and Houston will be better. It'll be interesting to see.

So it's official. David Carr has been cut. Have the Texans replaced the Lions as the laughingstock of the NFL? I mean, Matt Schaub? Last year, they could have drafted Leinart,Young or Cutler (not to mention Reggie Bush) and this year they opt for Shaub?

As the saying goes, only time will tell if they made the right decision.

Texans waive Carr, Williams



Associated Press
3/23/2007 4:43:16 PM

HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans waived quarterback David Carr, the first draft pick in franchise history five years ago, and running back Domanick Williams.

The Texans never have had a winning record, and Carr often was the scapegoat. He completed 60 per cent of his passes, but also threw 65 interceptions and was sacked 249 times in five seasons.

Houston hoped Carr would flourish under new coach Gary Kubiak last season, but the Texans went 6-10.

Williams, formerly Domanick Davis, is Houston's career rushing leader with 3,195 yards. He spent all of last season on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Also Friday, the Texans re-signed 1999 Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne, who joined the Texans just before last season and blossomed late in the season, rushing for 429 yards and five touchdowns in December.

The Texans released Carr a day after signing Matt Schaub and saying he would be their starting quarterback. General manager Rick Smith said Thursday the team was trying to trade Carr, who had two years left on a contract that was to pay him US$11.5 million for those seasons.

''It will be kind of weird without David next season, especially for the guys that have been there for a long time,'' Dayne said in a phone interview. ''It won't be that big for me since I just got here. But we've got to move forward without him.''

A message left for Carr's agent, Mike Sullivan, was not immediately returned Friday. The team said it would have no immediate comment.

Williams sat out most of training camp last season with soreness in his right knee. He showed up in the Texans locker room on Jan. 1, saying he had legally changed his last name from Davis to Williams, his mother's maiden name.

He missed five games in 2005 before undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. He returned for training camp and declared himself healthy, but soon stopped practising because of a bone bruise in the knee.

The Texans bolstered their backfield by signing Ahman Green earlier this month. The same day, Smith said Williams had experienced more swelling in his knee and will probably undergo another surgery.

The Texans signed Dayne two days after placing Williams on injured reserve in September. Dayne had been released by Denver, where Kubiak was formerly the offensive co-ordinator.

Dayne led the Texans with 612 rushing yards on 151 carries, his best season since 2001 with the New York Giants. He ran for 153 yards and two touchdowns in Houston's 27-24 win over Indianapolis on Christmas Eve, one of the biggest wins in franchise history.

Dayne said he's content to back up Green, a four-time Pro Bowler.

''It's OK,'' Dayne said. ''I've been in the same position for most of my career. So I've been used to it. Whenever I get in I just want to do my best and help the team.''

I'm sure many already know, but Joe Theissman has been removed from the ESPN Monday Night Football team and replaced with ESPN studio analyst, Ron Jaworski. Theissman has already been reassigned to studio analyst for ESPN, a position Jaworski recently held.

Great move, IMO.

Theisman is an abomination of a broadcaster, Jaworski is actually pretty good. ESPN, for once, does the right thing. Now, if/when they remove Kornheiser and replace him with Vermeil, that'll be another step in the right direction. Any network that unleashes Chris Berman on people trying to watch playoff baseball does not have the fans best interests at heart.

I think ESPN stopped caring about fans years ago.

Kornheiser is the worst in-game analyst on TV today, IMO. He's great in a studio, but when he's got to come up with stuff on the fly he just sounds like a douchebag.

In other news, the Eagles have traded Darwin Walker and a draft pick to Buffalo for Takeo Spikes and a 3rd string QB.

I like this deal, we had too many tackles as it stood, and Spikes will definitely improve the LBs.

I can't wait to see how cool a "Spikes-51" Eagles home jersey will look

So the Iggles finally have a competent QB, Kelly Holcomb.

Sonny Bono stopped caring only after he hit the tree. Cher on the other hand couldn't care less for her fans.
