Some of you guys need to luck past all the smack we talked to some of the Eagles fans, bottom line is that last season for them was an abboration, they are a very good team. Obviously we need to improve the secondary and the pass rush must show more. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel, keep the faith

What are people talking about, no improvement? We are just a little bit of luck form going in to half time with a 14-7 lead. I really think that changed the game right there, we had been the better team but we didnt finish the half. As a young team, you know that got to them and we never really recovered after that. We played well enough in the first half to win, if we could get a simmillar performance in the sencond half.

Nawzer

We've got to run the ball way better than this to have any chance of winning games this season. This whole offense is setup for the run and everything plays off the run. If we can't run we can't pass as simple as that. This team in my mind needs to have a dominant rushing attack like the Broncos and the Falcons. Otherwise all the play action, bootleg stuff won't work. With that said I think David Carr had a solid game but the o-line couldn't block and the defense was horrible for the exception of Lewis Sanders. But we knew it was going to be tough coming into the season with all the new changes and a very tough schedule. I'm not loosing hope and it's only 1 game. I think today was saw DC play well and put some nice touches on the ball to AJ and Moulds. Andre had a big game and Moulds too. Hopefully we'll find ways to get Lundy or Morency going. Tough loss but it's a long season.

Our offense produced many more yards and first downs than we've seen for a long time, that in itself is a positive. Negatives (from watching Gamecenter and this thread, game-DVD will arrive in a few days), rushing offense, rushing defense and secondary. Unfortunately I was right in my fear that our secondary is our weak spot, hopefully our DL will create more pressure in the future so that the secondary will look better.

Sad loss, but offense has upped it's production, and for that I am happy! :)

run-david-run
09-10-2006, 03:06 PM
Actually, last year we also look good in the first half but totally bomb it in the second, no change there...
Mathis' TD against the Browns in game 7 or 8 was the first lead we had last season and the first TD we scored in the first quarter. Yeah, we were great in the first half.

run-david-run
09-10-2006, 03:11 PM
DC's final stats: 18-27, 208 and 1 TD. If this was supported with any kind of running game, we would be well on our way, however, the Eagels showed off thier very good D-line. If he can put up these kind of numbers consistently and have a running game to support him, we will surprise some people. All in all, i think the offense played better then the 10 points they scored, but we still have a long way to go in terms of protection.

run-david-run
09-10-2006, 03:13 PM
By look good I meant we stay close with the other team.
Last season it seemed teams wouldnt ussualy score that much in the first half, but our D was on the field so much that they would tire out in the second resulting in very big numbers. Our offense was terrible last season, today, i think we showed some life, at least throwing the ball.

Porky
09-10-2006, 03:16 PM
Props to Carr today. He looked like a competant NFL QB out there. Payton Manning or Brady good? No, but he just needs to be what he was today. He had a better game today to my eyes that any of the 16 last year. He didn't just settle for the easy dump off, looking downfield often, and spread the ball around. Other than the one slip on the turf, and holding the ball too long a couple of times, he was very good today. I hope to see more of this from Carr. If so, we have a bright future. I give Carr a solid B+ today.

What I want to know is where is the balls to the wall, all out aggressive blitzkrieg defense of Richard Smith? They looked very much on thier heels all day, and let the Eagles dictate the tempo. In short, they looked like a carbon copy of last years "read and react" D. If I were Kubes, I would be reaming out Richard Smith. The Defense was simply awful. F

And, to throw in my 2 cents, I have said it till I was blue in the face for months. I finally stopped saying it, becase I was tired of the usual homerism. Saying your favorite team made a mistake is a punishable offense around here. But, who cares. This is a forum to state your opinion. So, I will say it again - Passing up Bush was a huge mistake, and will come back to bite them in the ass over and over again.

Our secondary played very well today. When you give any QB 6-7 seconds to throw the ball he can usually find someone open.

The battle is won and lost in the trenches. Our DL & OL didn't do much today at all. Definately a step back for our linemen.

We could have easily had 3 or 4 more victories last year also. We played "well enough" but fell apart at the end (see Rams and 49ers for 2 off the top of my head).

We have to give the team time, but I have to admit today was frustrating.

Another thing is that he only averaged 5.6 yards per touch. If that was rushing only that would be extremely impressive, but adding punt returns and receiving yards, it is less impressive. Still good, but nothing shocking.

Its always easy to feel good when your team wins, but let me take off my Eagles hat and share some hopefully objective thoughts about the Texans' performance.

-- Your Offense came out after the initial kickoff and not only made a strong statement, but scored as well.

-- Your Defense stuffed the Eagles on their first two drives

-- David Carr had a solid performance. His QB Rating will probably be over 100. He showed great presence in the pocket. He bounced up when sacked. He ran for 25 yards when his receivers couldn't get open. Kubiak has a lot to work with ... certainly no deer in the headlights.

-- You played a team that felt it was important to make a statement.

-- None of the Texans players looked like they gave up. They played from whistle to whistle.

All in all I saw a Texans team on the field that I would be proud to be a fan of.

Now all you need to do is win on September 24th, October 15th and November 5th!!:fans:

fastpitchwoof
09-10-2006, 03:52 PM
This is only one game. The pass offense will be good especially if the running game can get rolling. This is a very good Philly team. They are not the same team as last year's Philly team. Neither are the Texans. If you look at this game and any of the other games last year it is night and day. The result was the same. But seriously people, did anyone REALLY think that this team could be fixed in one year?? I am going to be pleased as long as I see improvement as I did today. I dare say that the expansion year was a better team than last year's team so Kubes and company are starting in the hole.

This may have been a much different story if we could have punched it in on that mid 4th quarter drive. That would have got us within 7 and then you just need a stop to get the ball back and challenge to tie it up. This young team is going to have to learn how to win. Under Capers they were accustomed to losing.

Last thought here to put it in perspective. What would the score have been with last year's team against this year's Eagles? I say 45 - 3. My point is that we are headed in the right direction. Be patient.

I only saw the first quarter and part of the fourth but from what I saw, the Eagles Run D was pretty darn good.
I only have the preseason game against the Brncos to compare, but there were no running holes against the Eagles D where there were holes against the Bronco's D who runs the same offensive scheme.

The Eagles were just damn good on Run D.

The Texans pass offense looked better than last year. Carr didn't look like a deer in headlights. Even my wife who knows almost nothing about Football commented on how he has more time to pass this game than in past years.

I think Carr is going to be fine. Once he decideds he has TE's the entire game he'll even be great.

A tough loss. But it was entertaining.

Which is something I couldn't say for many games last year.

He got his hands on two balls. He tackled fairly well. He did bite pretty badly on play action. He wasn't burned that badly aside of the Stallworth TD. I think he played fairly well, add some pass rush to the equation and his performance looks much better.

Well, it could have easily gone 31-10 if the Eagles did not kneel in the ball in the red zone. Or even 27-10 with a FG.

Seriously though, you guys as fans were great. Thank you for all of the hospitality. You guys need to keep the crowd going entering the 2nd half. It died in there quickly.

We had over 8,000 Eagles fans there... maybe close to 10,000. That was very surprising. We sat with a group of 40 or so and we even had Texans fans singing the Fight Song with us. LOL! Everyone around us was great but a couple idiots down on the end. Not bad for a place with 71,000 fans. You guys will get better and improve. Hang in there. Good luck to the Texans and beat the hell out of the Cowboys. Thank you again.

The Texans came out swinging and after that they turned into a punching bag. Carr showed everyone he could be a very good QB. What I was trying to tell you guys but nobody wanted to listen is that zone-blocking isn't some miracle scheme that works wonders for any team that runs it, otherwise, every team would run it. You still need a good offensive line to have a good run game, no matter what your scheme is.

Also, for the guy who said Carr would never get sacked, I salute you.

And to the guy who said the Texans have the edge in every aspect of the game except for LB, DB and ST, I salute you too.

The Texans have shown that they are rebuilding and I think they are going in a good direction, and if I were to build a team I would work from the lines outward, which is what Kubiak and your GM (whoever he is) is doing. Here's a good luck, and a hope that you guys don't get the first pick again.

And oh yeah, BEAT THE COWBOYS!

The Texans will lose next weeks game also against Colts, and they may go 0-4 during bye week. I also think Sage will come off the bench maybe after the bye week, or before.

I know ya'll are Texans fans, I'am too. But, we all know that David Carr don't have what it takes to lead this team to playoffs, or Super Bowl. They trying to make this guy out of something that he's not.

To be truthly honest with ya'll. I see this team 0-5 before they get any better.

So, Texans fans. Get ready for another disappointing season. And they may be contenders for the first round draft pick next year.

I don't care if you said your a Texans fan, I officially label you a Troll.

My reason?

The defining trait for a Troll is predicting that the team of the message board you are posting on will lose the next game immeadiatly following the end of the previous game.

We will beat the Colts, go back to your forums.

Carr seemed to do very well against the Eagles. I agree with you on the Colts and I'm not going to both looking up the rest of the schedule, but Carr is going to be a very good QB in the NFL. Actually, he already is in my opinion. He hits his targets well and he does a nice job finding his guy. You guys have other issues to look at in this rebulding process than the QB, who is already good.

Just imagine Carr with an actual Offensive Line.

You boys had me a little worried up till halftime. It took us while to warm up and yall were on at the start. I live in Houston, so now I would hope for you to win as much as possible. It was a fun time and I am not hear to talk smack or rub anything in your face. Good game and good luck, and you need to get rid of Carr!

^^^ I see I'm not the only one wanna get rid of Carr.

And did somebody said the Texans going to beat Colts? Please, don't make me laugh. Peyton Manning is going to pick Texans defense twice as worster then McNabb did. Texans will not stop Manning, at lease he take sick and don't play. He will have a field day with Texans defense.

Manning have HALL OF FAME written all over his face.

Carr played very well yesterday. Not his fault.

David Carr only played one good quarter and that was 1st quarter. To be a great quarterback in this league, Carr must play all four quarters like he did in the first. Don't sit here and blame everything on O-line, cause all of it wasn't their fault. Some was bad decisions Carr made, rookie mistakes.

I'm also tied off people taking up for Carr saying he's in a learning process of the new installed system. I'm sorry, but that's bull. Carr considered as a vertern, and this man still look like he's playing the first year of his career all over again. I'am sick and tired of it. Every year this damn franchise goes backwards.

Futhermore, when the Colts see's the film of Eagles vs. Texans game, they will be smiling/laughing. They know Carr can not stand pressure.

Once the offensive line has settled in, and truly gets the scheme, Carr will look a lot better.

His receivers were getting open. Thats a very good thing. He just needs more than 2-3 seconds to get the ball to them.

He looked very good though. A 102 rating is nothing to sneeze at.

Some of these Texans fans must have watched a different game then I did. I was at the game and watched the game at home last night (Tivo). Carr did well. It was just the Eagles D stepped up after the slow start in the first quarter. Carr still did pretty well considering he was under pressure a lot. A couple really nice scrambles in the 2nd half. Some great throws. He did good. Watch the game again instead of griping about Carr. He handles the pressure fine. That last sack, he was frustrated that is for sure but he handles himself very nicely.

Plus, the Eagles 2nd team defense line played just as good as the first team yesterday. Keep the guys fresh and changing it up was nice. I was skeptical about them changing to that style but it works.... works very well. The true test for us is Week 2 --- The Gnats.

Why do some people want to get rid of Carr? He had the 5th best passer rating in the NFL. 3rd in the AFC. All this against a pretty good defense, especially the secondary.

If your mad at the draft fine, but get off Carr's back (there are too many d lineman there already). The guy played as well as could reasonably be hoped for against a good team yesterday. This was a team that made the NFC Championship game 4 of the last 5 and the Texans are a team coming off 2-14. We should not be expected to win, just show heart. Carr showed plenty, the d line, none. And I dont blame the oline. They call that an offensive unit for a reason, and that doesnt happen in practice or in a few plays in preseason. They have to learn each other as much as they do defense.

This is what I'm talking about when I tell you people that you can't blame everything this team ever does wrong on the QB. There's 22 starters on this team and a bunch of bench players and special teamers. I think that most of the sacks were on the RBs, fullback(s), and TEs. I know that the D-line sucked and that the O-line's run blocking was PATHETIC. I don't see David Carr in any of that! Get off his back for this week.

Oh, and any sacks that were not on those I mentioned were on the 5 main O-linemen, except for one, single, solitairy slip-up by Carr. McNabb had ALL DAY to throw the ball and I saw him repeatedly throw passes at people's feet. He certainly got his numbers, but I'd hassle him about that before I'd jump on Carr's back for this game.
