Get Carr Now!

The Houston Texans have acquired Matt Schaub from the Falcons for draft picks, meaning David Carr is available and that he's available for a lot less. This is the perfect opportunity for the Purple to turn a lackluster offseason into an intriguing one. It is a chance to trade for a quarterback that has the skills necessary to run Childress' offense while the Tarvaris Revolution gains the experience needed to make the jump from 1-AA to the NFL. And it's a chance to do so at a reduced cost. Trading for David Carr would be a great move by the Vikings, would signal to their fans that they are not only trying to rebuild the franchise (which is necessary) but also trying to win before their defensive stars get old. And it can most likely be done for a reasonable price in draft picks.

So basically, what I'm trying to say is that I have no confidence that the Vikings will pull off a trade for David Carr.

Brad Childress said on KFAN this morning that he doesn't like Carr's throwing motion and that Carr can't make all the throws he'd need to. He said when acquiring a veteran like that, you don't want a bunch of things you want to fix.

I'm hoping he's blowing smoke.
