Some direct quotes from Kubiak I feel are good for discussion -- Kubiak is thinking some of the same things we are talking about on the boards. That Kubiak described Carr as "Shakey" last night during the half time interview was surprising.

My view of this is that I am cool with whatever Kubiak does with all things quarterback.

He sees the game tape. He knows what is supposed to happen. He's seen all the practices etc.

And he is not dealing with widgets but rather human beings. He knows that.

So, I am guessing that he will make whatever is the best decision based on the best information, team dynamics and what will make his football team better in the long run.

Talk radio is going to be unlistenable because people will go beyond what was on the field and exaggerate some, but just for me, what is cool with Kubiak as it relates to quarterbacks, is 100% cool by me.

It is possible for coaches to make statements so that they can further motivate players.

It sounded like Carr needs to learn coverages better. Inotherwords, watch more tape?

But of course this is just speculation, so let the speculation begin.

I think the offense has potential of being a high scoring offense. I wish Kris Brown hadn't missed from 37, but ah well.

Rosenfels is looking more like the QB benefitting the most from Coach Kubiak's system. Carr is coming around but I still think the 208 sacks is looming there, making him a bit shaky. I like the way he bounced back though, but at the same time he's getting shown up by #2.

Look at the bright side, VY hasn't won yet. :D

Coach Kubiak told us that on day one. It's Dave's job and my job to execute. When things are there, make plays. When things aren't, get rid of the football and move on."
He knows his roll...............

I couldn't agree more with you. I have faith in David Carr, he just has to shake off the hundreds of sacks he's taken. When he realizes that he has more protection out there with the new system, he is going be one hell of a threat. It's good to know that rosenfels is capable if needed though.

For what its worth

But Martz also praised McCown and Orlovsky.

“Overall, this is the best group that I’ve had,” Martz told WKRK. “All three of these guys can start in this league and play at a high level. …

“To say that we have basically three starters that can play this game is worth getting excited about.”

And Marinelli said Thursday the competition wasn’t over.

“The competition’s still there,” he said. Kitna “just enters camp as the starter, and then we’ll go from there.”

Stay tuned.

Coach's do this often, especially in their inaugural year. They keep their QBs on their toes and through competition aprove the overal play of both. This is only going to make the starting QB and back up better.

I guess I'm the opposite. Sometimes I'm like a moth to the message board flame. Like you I scroll right through a lot of the poorest posts, but I still read a lot.

I can easily not listen to sports talk radio. Between the commercials, off-topic host rants, and some of the callers I find it unbearable most of the time. I listen when players/coaches are scheduled, that's about it.

Comments from Kubiak such as these give me hope for the future.

He knows QB's and knows what he's doing. He's telling Carr like it is and doing something that Capers and Co. never did...letting him know (through statements such as 'Sage has starting ability') that Carr's job is up for grabs if he doesn't play like Kubiak wants him to.

It would be my estimation that if Carr underperforms in a few games in the regular season, that Kubiak will start Sage to send the message to Carr that underperformance is unacceptable. I also estimate that if this occurs...Carr comes back and continually plays better than he ever has before.

I agree with this. If Carr isn't doing the right reads, put Sage in. I realize less than a football game has been played with the 1st string offense, yet season time comes and we get to the bye week and Carr is still struggling, then yank him..

I honestly feel that it is time for anyone not to use the "expansion" tag anymore and I also feel if Carr has good protection through the 1st 6 games and making the wrong reads still, it is time to see what another QB can do. It would have to be tough love because we all know that Carr has taken a pounding but that excuse would need to go out the window also when 1/3 of the season is gone.

Sure we can keep it in mind, as long as we also keep in mind he had #2's and #3's on the oline, and the 4th, 5th, and 6th best WR, backup TE's, etc.

Having said that, I think the best way to resolve this, is to start him one game and see what happens. Some guys are inherently better relief picthers than starters, and I think Sage had that reputation coming in. Time for a reality check. He is going to have to way out perform Carr to win the starters job for a variety of reasons.

This is definitely a motivator from Kubiak -- Carr without a doubt needs someone in his face. After 4 years in the league it is time to produce -- Kubiak wants to see David run the offense smoothly before the preseason ends. I thnk Carr is on a shorter leash than many believe.

We may see the ultimate motivator of Sage starting the final preseason game if Carr struggles again next week. Of course Carr will still start week one though.

First, on sports radio...it's the worst during Rockets season. You get the most RIDICULOUS trade proposals called in, all of them seemingly sending Yao away (that's just stupid).

Secondly, I support Carr fully, but whatever Kubiak does I trust. I trust him and this staff so much more than the last, it's amazing. Some of this is coachspeak, you should know that, but it's good to see someone at least getting in his face. I don't get excited over preseason performances because I've seen them much too often not amount to squat.

RiotCommander
08-20-2006, 12:34 PM
Its not uncommon for most starters to be held out of the last preseason game to prevent injury. So Sage getting the start in that game would not shock me. Can we give this Sage vs Carr thing a rest? Kubiak has done a great job thus far I think we can rely on him to put the right guy behind center.

Kubiak has already said that Carr is going to play most of the 3rd game and Rosenfels will play most of the 4th game. That is what most teams do.

Agreed. Last night one poster was so in love with Carr he even knocked Sages TD pass, calling it a "duck". He even went so far as to say Carrs postion is locked and bringing in Sage as a starter would have us drafing #1 again.

I think its loyalty vs. best player. Good thing coaches choose best player.

I don't want to pee on anyone's Cheerio's or anything (and of course in Kubiak we trust)...but the jury is still out on Carr in my mind. He looked shaky to me last night, like sometimes he was capable of fantastic things, and then the next play he seemed confused and flustered.

I'm reserving judgement until we see some regular season games, but I'm not blind to certain tendencies DC has had in the past. Let's see if Kubiak can coach it out of him, and truly see what he's capable of. But this season is the test to me. Five years ought be enough to evaluate any player in this league.

That would be the best way for the fans to see what they want to see. Has nothing to do with finding a starting QB. It is still the preseason, and things will change once the regular season starts, and DCs open up the playbook.

IMHO, David didn't look shaky..... I saw him bouncing around a little bit. But they didn't run the bootlegs to get him out of the pocket this week that they used last week. & we couldn't get our running game going while David was in. & the tailback wasn't helping on passing downs...

It's also good to remember that making David Carr successfull, is as big a goal of Kubiak's as it is to make the Texans successfull. So unless David literally throws a touchdown in the wrong endzone, he is our starting QB.... good or bad, right or wrong.

If you're one of those who believe we'll finish less than 8-8, then don't worry. We can do that IMHO at the same time we are teaching David Carr to win, to not leave plays on the field. I'm actually thinking it's all going to start clicking for David in the next two weeks. Starting Sage one of those two weeks, I think will be detremental to our overall goal.

Sage is good to go, I think..... whenever/if-ever Kubiak makes the decision to start him....... he's going to do well.

Best QB on the field yesterday?? Without a question Mark Bulger. 2 seconds. He'd found his reciever, and made his decision of where the ball should be 2 seconds after the ball was snapped. That's what our goal should be.... neither David, or Sage is close to that right now..... David may very well be closer....

Of course when the second and third team comes out and craps all over your secondary, you know Bulger's success was in large part to his recievers, their routes, and their overall "scheme". But Bulger getting the ball out as quickly as he did made his OL look pretty darn good.

Back to starting Sage......... why?? Kubiak says the man can be a starter in this league... what else is there to prove?? That's exactly what we need to know about our backup.

Let Carr choke on the first 3 games , then we can put Sage. LMAO at some people here.

Kubiak has already shown a players salary has no bearing on who starts. As it should be. American dollars don't throw TD passes. You can bet Kubs will start the best QB regardless of salary. As far as the 2nd stringer tag....arnt all QB's 2nd or 3rd stringers (unless they start as a rookie) at some point? Plenty of Hall of Fame QB that played the 2 during there career. Are we going to pay Sage a 2mill signing bonus and not let him compete for the postion? If comparing performance on the field is Carr bashing so be it....take an asprin.

I agree. Kubiak was quoted as saying that Carr's play was shaky, and I agree with him, he was. Just agreeing with the head coach, that's all.

There is a very good bright side to this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from Kubiak's comments, I take it that Kubes sees the very same negative things about Carr as we do . . . the happy feet, the indecisiveness, etc.

You couldn't say that about Capers.

I think Carr has shown he has the ability but with how bad the offense and the O-line play has been, he gets some benefit of the doubt.

I think it might be to late for him to recover from the shell shock of it all. I believe when he came into this leauge in his first and second season, no one threw a deep ball better than him. He was accurate and strong, but the sacks came and the dropped passes came and thus went his confidence.

Lets see Sage start agains the first team, like people cried for Banks and he threw 3 ints vs the 49ers (lol). Sage is not a roamer for no reason.

If anything, Brady Quinn can come here next season :)

I don't have a problem with having faith in Carr one last year, but I would like to see the staunch Carr supporters have the same faith in P-Buc, Weary, Babin, TJ, Wand, et. al. Most of them haven't had half the chances Carr has had, they have had the same bad coaching, and haven't really been any worse on the field overall. Carr gets defended to the hilt, but a lot of these players just get called busts. Why the double standard? That is what I find annoying.

Some of the guys have been laid waste on this board during OTAs and camp - and the games have shown them to be far ahead of these reports. I don't think many MB members would have blinked twice if Wand, Weary, P-Buc, etc had been cut this year, and now many of these same players are starting or challenging to.

You know, I think that some of the fans are hoping Carr fails, so they can see Sage "the savior" Rosenfels. I believe in starting the best player. Maybe Sage will get his shot, but I think Carr will perform well using the bootlegs. I still think the greatest test will be against Indy as Freeny is chasing Carr on the bootlegs. If he proves he can successful against Indy, then I am convinced he can handle the starting position.

With the exception of PBuc, I think they do get some/most of the slack that Carr does, at least from me. PBuc probably would also if not for the "Ole" play. Most of what I see of those defending Carr is typically in response to direct attacks by the UT/VY/Carr hater Jihadies who contantly attack him, often with just made up stuff "the coach is thinking" type stuff. The difference is that I see those that support Carr admitting that he does some stuff wrong, but if you look at the Jihadie's post, every thing is his fault and nothing is anything but his fault. Occasionaly they will say " Yes I saw that, BUT" and that means ignore everything I said before, here is what I believe. There is a thread on the boeard here that talks about percieveing what we whant to be reality coloring how we see things.

3500 yards passing in one season, a positive touchdown to interception ratio the past two seasons, over 60% completion rate the past couple of years, AND he has done the things the coaches have asked of him. The problem was that Capers & Co weren't asking a lot of him. They wanted him to be Trent Dilfer and that's what they got. They just didn't give him the Ravens D on the other side of the ball.

a) With the exception of PBuc, I think they do get some/most of the slack that Carr does, at least from me. PBuc probably would also if not for the "Ole" play.
...
b) There is a thread on the boeard here that talks about percieveing what we whant to be reality coloring how we see things.


a) They are starting to get the slack because their performance has been good to very good in the pre-season games. They've actually shown they are better than popular misperception. Had I believed most camp reports and other threads before the games started, I would have thought some of these players were going to get blown up on every single play.

I think it's time to move past the ole play and see how P-Buc does now. That is a good example of my point.

b) I know - I repped that thread. It explains a lot. Here it is:

I'm not sure Kubiak's direct quotes about Carr's play equate to bashing -- they are more for motivation IMO.
I agree. Kubiak was quoted as saying that Carr's play was shaky, and I agree with him, he was. Just agreeing with the head coach, that's all.

There is a very good bright side to this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from Kubiak's comments, I take it that Kubes sees the very same negative things about Carr as we do . . . the happy feet, the indecisiveness, etc.


Obviously Kubiak is a Carr hater. :whistle:

]']Well if your ready to bench the 8 million dollar QB for a 2nd stringer, glad your not kubes. Least Give Davie Franchise a chance to choke on games that matter.

Vinny, if your so sure Carr will choke, then you got nothingto worry about, he will be bench mid september.... Kubes aint Capers, he is the real thing. Happy? Sheeeeshhhhhh.....

All this Carr Bashing gives me a head ache, cause some people actually tries to hard

Let Carr choke on the first 3 games , then we can put Sage. LMAO at some people here.
I never mentioned benching Carr. I just see a double standard. I haven't said anything about Carr choking either. Those are your words, so don't strawman me. I want Carr to play well since I'm a fan of this team but I'm sick of watching a bad passing team 5 years in to this. I also would like to discuss what I see with our fans and don't feel compelled to post observations that I don't believe in.

The only person I have faith in is GK. Whomever he puts in the starting postion whether that be on Offense or Defense is fine with me. I know that an important player like David Carr needs a little time to adjust to the system or game from what he has gone through in the past, however, if by mid- season if he isn't making quicker and smarter descisions with were he is going with the ball and shown the ability to stop locking into his WR's, then put someone else in to get the job done. I'm freaking tired of excuses by now as many of you are and just want to see results and that's the bottom line. I'm tired of waiting for anyone's potential to just appear after they have been given plenty of time to show it off. You either have the ability and are coachable enough to learn how to unleash it (espeacilaly now with GK as HC) or you move your *** out of the way. You do whatever is best for the team, because you want what is best for the team. Sometimes in life you have to loose things in order to appreciate where you were. Let's hope that if things play out like that it would be enough for DC to get his **** together! And if not, GK was smarter than all of us in testing DC's will to succeed by replacing him. And if things pan out like this, then that should be enough for us as fans to see DC for who he truly is or never was!

I think Babin, P-Buc, and the rest are getting their second chances with Carr now.

They definitely are, from Kubiak and crew..... not from the casual fan on the MB though.

that's like asking if there is a God....... you can't prove it.... but when you know, you know.


Carr worship jumps shark. Whatever you do don't say anything bad about DC -- he might be listening...

Some direct quotes from Kubiak I feel are good for discussion -- Kubiak is thinking some of the same things we are talking about on the boards. That Kubiak described Carr as "Shakey" last night during the half time interview was surprising.
_______

"He's very composed, he's a great leader and he understands coverages."

--Kubiak

_____________

"I told David that the Rams have an aggressive defense, and when they come after us, he's got to make those plays," Kubiak said. "I felt there were seven or eight times when we could have made plays.

"I was disappointed in some things early, but he battled back. He knows I'm just trying to make him better."

--Kubiak

No one is exempt from Kubipsychology.

My view of this is that I am cool with whatever Kubiak does with all things quarterback.

He sees the game tape. He knows what is supposed to happen. He's seen all the practices etc.

And he is not dealing with widgets but rather human beings. He knows that.

So, I am guessing that he will make whatever is the best decision based on the best information, team dynamics and what will make his football team better in the long run.

Talk radio is going to be unlistenable because people will go beyond what was on the field and exaggerate some, but just for me, what is cool with Kubiak as it relates to quarterbacks, is 100% cool by me.


I agree 101% ........
