Take a Flyer on Carr

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Who even cares about David Carr? I can't believe so many people are discussing him. I didn't even bother to watch the Texans/Seahawks game last night, since I was so annoyed with the outcome of the Saints game... As for ...

As for the usual, tired Brooks argument, I'll simply say this:

Brooks played a damn good game...........and for anyone who's gonna toy with the idea of blaming him for this outcome due to a tipped ball interception....................then they should be equally ready to blame Antowain Smith for his fumble that got taken all the way back for a TD. At least with Brooks's INT, the D had an opportunity to hold the Falcons to a field goal.

Personally, I blame no one other than the refs.............since Brooks, Anotwain, and Aaron Stecker are 3 of the big reasons why the Saints were looking so dominant at one point..

Ok that was pretty funny, I'll admit..

But I could still live without hearing the 4-letter "J" word as often as it's used..

Jake did 2 things that I liked while he was in New Orleans:

1. He started against, and defeated, the Dallas Cowboys on Christmas Eve 1999.

2. He came in late in the 2nd Tampa Bay game in 2002, and threw the game-clinching first down pass to Joe Horn.


He made his 2 contributions to the Saints, and then he left for greener pastures and a chance to start. Good for him, as far as I know he's a really nice guy who deserved a chance to start somewhere.

All of that being said, I can't imagine why somebody would, as you say, spend the entire summer worshiping Jake. I've never seen anything out of Jake that would lead me to believe we would have magically been in a Super Bowl in the last few years. I feel like he was in the right place, at the right time, on the right team, with the right attitude. Jake reminds me alot of Jim Harbaugh in 1995.......remember when Jim (a so-so QB most of his career) came out of nowhere and took the Colts (who had a habit of pulling out really close wins that year, just like the Panthers in '03..................the Colts were referred to as the Cardiac Colts in '95, and the Panthers were the Cardiac Cats in '03) all the way to the AFC title game? Jim had another solid year or 2 after that, but never really recreated the magic from 1995. That's pretty much the way I see Jake at the moment. He's a good qb, he's not a savior.

I will now go sprinkle myself with Holy Water, since i used the 4-letter J word about a dozen or so times in this post...
