Good to hear Buchanon doing a good job on punt returns that takes away one of the question marks for the season.

Yes, he comes in at RE and Mario jumps to RDT and the left side of the Rams line has collapsed under the two of them a couple times. They both got through on the Peek deflection.

Carr Bombed
08-19-2006, 08:02 PM
I love fans who want nothing but throwing deep. It'll come. Our entire playbook is also not gonna be shown in a meaningless preseason game.

Im not saying I want nothing but deep passes, but when you have a player like AJ who you spent a #3 ovrl. pick on, you give him a couple of opportunities a game. Just because its a meaningless game doesn't mean you don't throw a deep pass, every game I've seen so far this preseason teams have thrown a couple of deep passes, you work on the timing during preseason games, because they're meaningless, thats what they are there for.

Throwing a deep pass every once in a while, won't hurt. Preseason has absolutely nothing to do with it.

Although by the sounds of it, we don't seem to be getting great protection

Sarg01
08-19-2006, 08:02 PM
Carr-Johnson, perfect pass/catch/1st down with assist from Vernand.

BradK10

TO has played in a west coast offense his entire career, and SF and Philly (save last year) got plenty of production out of him. AJ can be the same way.

Jackson's done nothing. But then again, St. Louis has only gone to him 4 or 5 times.

Executing as such and blocking. His speed to the whole is undeniable and the way he ran over the defender in the second tier looked great.

TO had plenty of deep balls thrown his way.

West coast offense doesn't = no deep passes.

Again I'm not saying just throw it deep. I'm saying every once in a while let one fly on second and short, especially in these preseason games, thats what they're there for.

Just got a chance to check in. Mario is looking good, Lundy needs to learn how to block, Morancey looked really good so far. Also, I think Spencer looks good too. While we may not win this game I really like what I see.


Can someone find us a real kicker? The guy seems to miss anything thats not an extra point.

Patience.... :)

It's 1.5 games into the preseason of a new regime...don't get stressed, it's not good for your heart ;)

Personally, I prefer the short passes and then let AJ let his ability take over. He's masterful after the catch. The chances of completing a short pass is greater, so I'd take those odds and then get some YAC 75% of the time than throwing deep and only connecting 25% of the time.

That's fine, but until you're at every minute of practice, like the coaches, none of us have a clue.

I still stand by my statement that if anyone on this roster other than Carr is starting QB, prepare to be picking at the top of the draft again next year.

Prior to this game I thought Lundy would be the starter going into the season but Morency has really impressed me tonight with his running and especially his pass protection. I think his blocking for the most part is what will catapult him into the starting role ahead of Lundy. Domanick Davis can kiss his starting gig goodbye IMO. Morency and Lundy will be our 1-2 punch with Morency getting the bulk of the carries.

If you take one of Carr's incompletions and make it a 21 yd. pass for a touchdown, his QB rating for this game would be 105, instead of 75. That's what's wrong with David Carr.

He's a dump off passer. Most of his passing yds. were from run-after-catch, from what I gather.

That's fine, but until you're at every minute of practice, like the coaches, none of us have a clue.

I still stand by my statement that if anyone on this roster other than Carr is starting QB, prepare to be picking at the top of the draft again next year.

Earl Campbell was the worst practice player ever. He would fall down running simple 4 cone drills. If what you say is true, Campbell would have never taken the field. You are also saying the coaches picked a #2 QB that has no hope of winning. As I recall reading Kubiak recruited him aggressively. So, I AM showing faith in the coaching staffs decisions based on performance.

Well i don't know much about the Tyler Rose's practice habits, but when you drafted Earl you knew what you got with him.

If you feel comfortable promoting a guy based on his performance vs. 2nd and 3rd string defenses, and throwing into the fire Day 1 vs. an agressive Philly defense, go right ahead. I'm not so sure. "Exhibition Heroes" can be misleading. Sage did the same thing when he was in Miami.

it cant be that big of a problem, he has completed over 60% of his passses in the last 2 seasons with AJ, Bradford, and Gaffney being his 3 top receivers last season and AJ, DD, and Gaffney the season before that. If Bradford and Gaff were good enough to be able to allow carr to complete 60% of his passes for 2 straight seasons they would both still be here.

Sometimes you have to win the ugly ones when things are going exactly the way you planned them or your having an off day. This game began on a very shaky note. Actually Carr has had 3 nice drives, 1 for a missed field goal, 1 for a TD, and 1 at the end for a field goal. The last one is the type that wins games because it was with less than 2 minutes and left no time on the clock.

Be happy we are winning and beginning to get it together. If PBUC is healthy we have a punt returner. The kicker I don't know. Yes, we have a QB in Carr and you will just have to watch. He got off on a shaky start, but he got better as the game wore on. Just sit back and relax because you do have somewhat of a defense that is going to get exciting with more time on the field.

My observations of the 1st half.

Carr needs to improve his awareness and decision making.

Lundy needs to learn to cut block

The 2ndary is suffering still from the QB having too much time.

Chris Brown needs to settle down. AND the long snapper needs to be more accurate. (Brown had to studder step a bit before the kick.)

First half recapp...... David looked great tonight.

ONe bad throw, I won't make excuses...... overall, he looks poised, he looks confident, he looks like a veteran. To me, though the stats may not back it up now, but to me it looks like things have slowed a little bit, even though StLouis is playing better, and bringing more pressure than KC did.

I still don't see Spencer starting..... Unless McKinney doesn't make it back, and we put him in at RG.

Travis still has work to do, but he is still our best player on the inside. I can't fathom us not starting Babin for the regular season, and we'd be stupid to get rid of Peek.... right now... IMHO, Weaver appears to be odd man out. I can't think of one person..... maybe Robaire..... maybe.. that I'd start Weaver over.

Buchanon....... as a corner... he's doing better..... as a return man..... I really hoped the physicallity he's playing with would translate there as well. He's giving up 5 yards going out of bounds, or dancing in the backfield.... there's space, he just needs to hit it(I like the moves... but I don't think they were necessary)

Demeco's pretty Quite. Morency is tough.... Joppru won't make it as a fullback(I know it's his first game)..

Mario......... I'm sure he'll still be criticized, for his low stats..... but there is absolutlely no doubt in my mind, that he will be everything we think he should be.....
