Also, NY must agree with him...he has a SB ring, even if it's earned as a back-up.

Lee, are you warm and dry? I noticed the Bay Area is suffering through some wet weather.
Carr did ok but as mentioned he got killed in his early yrs (one really BAD year) and once he got those happy feet he was done in Houston. Also had a lousy work ethic and became a real wuss (REALLY Lousy he was one of the guys that would be last in and first out and for a QB not good) as Kubiak gave him a full yr to prove himself before he made the trade for Schaub. Carr has had a 10+ yr career so far -

Russell and Leaf are at the top along with Marinovich........Al Davis had two huge busts under his watch.....
