    I wouldn't mind having Carr brought in.

    If McCarthy sees something in him, he may well be worth a look. Certainly a little competition never hurt.

    A career 60 percent completion rate behind an offensive line that was in shambles from day one of the franchise. Carr is a better QB than most give him credit for. Put him on a team that can block and give him a little time... smart kid.

    Does anyone else think it might be hard to break him from some of the bad habits he learned trying to work with such a terrible line for so long. Sometimes it looked like he was too anxious to go through his progressions instead of settling down in the pocket and letting things develop.

    See I think it is the other way around, he held the ball too long and took a ton of sacks and got beat up. He is not afraid to stand in the pocket in my opinion. Also.. he completed like 68 % of his passes last year.

    Tedford never coached Carr... not being a smart arsh... sorry OregonPackFan.

    After retiring as a player, Tedford became a volunteer assistant coach at Fresno State (1987-1988). He then coached the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL (1989-1991); returned to Fresno State as quarterback coach (1992-1997); and worked as offensive coordinator at the University of Oregon (1998-2001).

    David Carr was one of the most successful athletes ever to play for Fresno State. He was the starting quarterback during the 2000 and 2001 seasons after redshirting in 1999. Under his leadership, the Bulldogs went 7-5 and 11-3. In his senior season the team beat Colorado, Oregon State, and Wisconsin, all members of BCS conferences. There was speculation about whether the Bulldogs would qualify for a BCS bid, something unprecedented for a 'Mid Major' conference team. During his collegiate career Carr completed 587 of 934 passes for 7,849 yards. He threw 70 touchdowns versus 23 interceptions. Carr collected many honors and awards during his final college season, most notably the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award.

    I think Carr can be a solid QB playing with a good team. I wouldn't mind him being brought in to compete with Rodgers for the backup spot. However he would have to come cheap. Like for a late round draft pick.

    I also think it's possible that the Raiders land David Carr and then draft Calvin Johnson #1 overall. Making it more likely they trade or cut Randy Moss. Just throwing that theory out there. I remember hearing Oakland liked David Carr. I'm not sure where nor can I remember I just remember hearing that. :)

    I believe there is no doubt Carr is a Tedford QB

    I failed to mention that Tedford recruited Carr to Fresno and coached him there for a year also.

    I think he could be good too, if given a chance with a decent o-line. He can be retaught if he can get comfortable with a line that can give him some time to throw. I would be for bringing him in for a look.
    What can it hurt to look?

    I heard the Texans were looking for a 4th round pick and in my book Carr isn't worth that when he's most likely to be cut anyway.

    See now, I look at the fact that they were 27th in the league in yards per pass attempt, as an indications that he his dumping off to the Back's more than he's allowing the receivers time to get open. I just can't imagine that quarterback can get sacked that much without it plying with his mind a bit.

    After some research, you are correct, Tedford coached Carr his true freshman year of 1997. Learnt something today:)

    I still think he could be retrained, if he was able to not feel like he was gonna get creamed every time he dropped back to pass.

    I think he has LOTS more potential then Tim Couch did. I'd like to see him here, to get a shot.
