David Carr is not a good QB. He's average at best. He played at Fresno St. against watered down competition and never was able to handle the pressure of being an NFL starter.
I clearly understand that Houston has had one of the worst O-Lines in the NFL, but at some point that has to come back to the QB and his decision making/play-making abilities. He's what Bledsoe is right now, stone-footed and washed up.
He had 5 years to show progression and failed to do so. Thats a LONG time to be a starter and lose that many games. Anywhere else and he would have gotten yanked about 2 years ago.
Someone will more than likely pick him up, but I highly doubt he starts again unless someone gets injured.

They tried, but nobody would pick up his salary so they had to cut him as he was pretty much 'dead weight' at that point in time.
