David Carr???

Recommended Posts

I just read an article in the St. Paul Pioneer press that the vikings are interested in david carr, vikings would give up a fourth rounder for him.

I would do that in a heartbeat. Why? A fourth rounder is nothing. Houston didnt surround him with any talent and there are a quite a few stories out there where it takes a QB a few years and a change of scenery to reach their potential. I am not saying he is the answer, but if we only have to give up a fourth rounder, absolutely, do it. How many 4th rounders can you even name?

The Whizzinator (SOD)!!

I agree. David Carr was the highest rated quarterback the first half of the season last year. Well worth a 4th round IMO. I'm sure 1/4 of the NFL would be interested in a trade like that.

I think it would be a good deal for us. He's never had more than 1.2 seconds to throw before he get's hit and drops to the turf.

I sure hope the Vikes do something. Right now, let's face it, the Vikes do not have a quarterback heading into next season. Johnson is done, Bollinger is not a NFL quarterback and Jackson is about 5yrs away. I am a firm believer that you do not need a great quarterback to win but you need one that is decent and can take care of the ball. Right now the Vikes do not have that guy. I predict right now that Childress will be gone by week 5. Gonna be a long year for the purple come this fall.

I absolutely think he's worth a shot at only a 4th round pick. The guy's career was probably shortened four years due to all the physical abuse he took without any sort of line, but he's still young enough that that won't matter for a few years.

This is a no brainer. Then again we have to wonder what goes thru Childress' head. Johnson is out and having Carr could be a blessing in disguise. Not going to cost as much as trying to get Schaub. Vikes should jump on this asap. Sweeten the offer by including a player like Smoot, Kleinsausser, or Wiggins.

how's the running game in purple country? is it really any better than houston? i really don't know, not being snotty.

i would actually like to see the vikes do well with the right people but i could go either way with carr. he's worth a shot though. i don't get to see alot of nfc north games out here just 9er's and raiders frown.gif

If you purple people can get him for a 4th rounder, you better jump all over that! I highly doubt Houston will give him away for that price however. Then again, good old Mike Sherman has his hands in the cookie jar down there now and he isn't exactly a personnel/free agency guru. He's made dumber moves in the past.

I agree, you boys do need some interim QB help, regardless of whether Jackson is your long-term guy or not. Carr would give him some stiff competition.

    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad.
