Both teams will score around twenty points. It could go either way but the win doesn't matter much to either Kubiak or Edwards. They're looking for other things that matter more tonight. Same here.

I'm basically wanting to see the following.

1. I want to see some Texans running back demonstrate that he "gets" this new system and can exploit it. I don't care if it's Antowain Smith, Vernand Morency, Lundi or Taylor. it doesn't matter to me. What matters is that the system appears to be working to some degree.

2. I want to see David Carr for at least two series and I don't want him to look confused or nervous. I don't want to see him get hit.

3. I want to see our defensive line get pressure. on a consistent basis. With so many first round draft picks and high dollar free agents out there and so much competition for spots on that line I want to see them do something. I don't care if the secondary gets burned because I understand what's going on out there. I don't care if the linebackers come up short because I understand what's going on there too. The line needs to show us something tonight though.

Yeah the game doesn't mean much, but I'm just excited for football season.

Just to add on to what Hervoyel was talking about on offense, I'd like to see the TEs getting some action as well - we haven't seen that in a while. Let's see what Joppru can do - here's to a healthy season, man :party:

People who can't watch the game and are on high speed connections (DSL, Cable and up) should really check out a free program called TVU Player. It lets you watch channels you normally wouldn't get. Not shilling, but it's pretty nice to have. :hides: You may get lucky and it'll be showing it... Just thought I'd help before we become mortal enemies for one game at the season opener. :cool:

No but they both should have been. His first two passes to Mould were right on target, but other than that he has made some bad decisions.Both his poor passes were in the middle of the field as he was in the pocket. Both of his good passes were on designed rolls out of the pocket with the WR on the sidelines. Carr has struggled in the middle of the field in the past as he has never been able to resovle the cover 2.

I've felt like so far Carr is out of sync. My guess is he's jittery and forcing stuff. He needs to chill out and let it happen. The mistakes he's made were all mental so far.

Lundy looks like he "gets" the system. If this is my team and he keeps this up he's starting next week. Antowain maybe a great presence in the locker room and a veteran who can show the young guys how to be but he can do that from the second string spot for now. If Taylor is what his press says then maybe Antowain drops to third or doesn't make this team.

I think that Carr couldn't have beaten the Cover 2 with the O they ran under Capers. In order to beat the Cover 2, you need a good WR corps or a TE that can stretch the field in order to draw the safeties away from the flanker WRs.

One of the "bad" passes you describe was barely nicked by the defender as stuck his hand out in desperation...it was barely tipped, but the ball was going so fast--and AJ was going so fast--that just THAT much caused AJ to not catch it.

I disagree with your assessment that the second pass to Aj was a bad decision. It was almost a great play, and AJ was going to score if he caught it.

Has Carr gotten any pressure tonight or is the line holding up alright.

Line is holding up. Looks the way zone block is supposed to look but a little sluggish. The holds are developing fast enough. They showed some live stuff followed immediately by some old Denver film and you can see the comparison. The Capers zone blocking never looked like that!

Speaking of which, who was beside Weaver, Payne or Smith? The whole inside got dominated by the Chiefs, but they have Brian Waters and Will Shields, two Pro Bowl guards, probably Hall-of-Famers.

Speaking of homers, Sage Rosenfels is looking more polished and poised than David Carr. I'm just saying, I'm not against benching David Carr for a game or two--even if it is just pre-season games.

Hervoyel
08-12-2006, 07:54 PM
Usually when the second QB comes in I'm accustomed to seeing a decrease in the positions effectiveness. When Sage came in I'd say it was a wash or maybe even a slight improvement. He just looked so much more comfortable back there than Carr did.

Lundy's a rookie and he did a rookie thing with that dropped ball but I expect the coaches will get that straightened out this week.

bayoudreamn
08-12-2006, 07:54 PM
The video is cutting to receivers just as the ball gets there so we don't see how long the receivers are open but for the most part neither quaterback has gotten the ball to the receivers at a point where they had a chance for extra yards. The defense is all over the passes. I don't know if the passes are on time or late though because we don't get an early peek.

On the show that came on before the game, the one by NFL Films, Kubiak was seen calling out Lundy on his blocking, telling him to keep his shoulders going up and holding his ground. Seems like Lundy has had this problem before.

What a play fake!! Seriously, Rosenfels is battling for the starter job and is so far playing much better than Carr.

Lundy barely stopped before the TD. 53 and Chester Pitts had some nice blocks, Spencer and the TE next to him did a nice job of blocking the end, but I expected more from Spencer.
