did anybody catch this interview? was there anything of substance? was there anything that wasn't of substance but would still warrant mentioning for those of us who are so football deprived that anything is news?

I caught the last few minutes of it, and nothing of note was said. He was asked a bunch of questions by Carl Dukes, all of which has been discussed, re-hashed, beaten to death, and then resurrected here on the boards. He's a leader, the offense is going to be better this year, he's excited to be here because the talent level is so high, the offensive line is great, Ahman Green loves to block and pick up blitzers, et al.

*sigh* ...... August needs to arrive soon.

I heard the last part of it, too, where Schaub was talking about protection. I like his interviews, because he really talks about the X's & O's of football.

He said protection goes beyond just the line, and is also the responsibility of the backs, TE, and WRs, as well. More importantly, the QB has the biggest roll, simply because he needs to recognize threats and make adjustments accordingly, and specifically, don't set up the o-line to fail. He added that once protection does break down, the QB's job is to get rid of the ball with intelligent decisions.

All in all, the little that I heard makes me even more confident that MS is going to be a good QB for us. While I'm not certain how much FUN he's having, I am certain that he is dedicated to the game and has a deep understanding and desire to learn as much as he can to translate on the field.

Could be...but I get more of the feeling that he's talking from a leader's perspective of trying to explain the game and the how/why things happen.

Being new to the team, I think he's free from worrying about the past, simply because he's not a part of it. His interviews are great for this football fan, because he gives you insight and straight up football talk. There is nothing about emotional issues or it just being a game. He seems like a QB that really has a focus on winning being all that matters, and the only way to achieve that objective is deep study and hardcore practice. Schaub is all business in the stuff I've heard and read about him.

Over the course of the past few seasons I think All of the positions above had as much to do with the break downs in pass protection as did the O-line . When was the last time you saw a Texans reciever break off a route and come back to the ball to give the QB a target ? How many times did the backs miss blitz assignments ? How many times did the QB sack himself (UGH !)?

The one stat I would love to see...how many times did the QB sack himself by running out of bounds behind the line of scrimmage?

Yep, and that's on coaching, IMO. I think Kubiak's plan of protecting the QB makes it the responsibility of the entire offense and not just the line.

I think the addition of Green, a self professed blitz defender, will have a great effect on the rest of our young RBs. Hopefully his work ethic and attention to picking up the blitz rubs off on everyone else.

They're both ESPN stations.

790 was an ESPN station until early this year I believe. That's why John Lopez and Ted DeLuca have their own show now. I think ESPN opted out of the station because 790 decided to have more local programming. They have some Fox Sports Radio shows now, but it's all local from 6 AM-7 PM during the week. 97.5 has one local show (Jorge Vargas and Jerome Solomon) and everything else is an ESPN syndicated radio show I believe. So they are seperate stations.

And the reason why ESPN opted out was because they were switching over to FM dials, rather than AM dials.

Intense film study and extra off-season workouts with his recievers, to start off. Something your loverboy never seemed to grasp.

do you have a link to that interview? i'm not surprised if that was the case though. you have to constantly hone your skills if you are going to get anywhere in professional sports. you can take the training down a notch in the offseason but you still have to keep your game tight and improve.

from what I have heard about Schaub this offseason, he has already been working WITH his teammates in the offseason on routes and timing and this was WAY BEFORE June. Hopefully that is a good omen for next year.

This season is shaping up to be a great season with tons of subplots and rivalries around the league.

This season is shaping up to be a great season with tons of subplots and rivalries around the league.

Let's see there was this:
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2836486

"It's funny, the day I was signed by Carolina, I was throwing balls the next day. I've never done that before,'' Carr said. "I was out there throwing a ball for two or three hours and I couldn't really explain it except I was excited to get a new opportunity and a chance to show what I can do.''

And there was this:
http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/fb/texansfront/4780266.html

"You've got to enjoy the game," Carr said. "If you're not having fun, it's going to be like what I had the last couple of years where you almost don't even want to come to work."


I thought there was another quote but those were all I could find quickly. But I think that first quote implies that he wasn't throwing during the offseason except when he was at OTA's or TC.

In the second link, there's a little something that I think illustrates his lack of leadership skills.

"We're getting along great," Carr said of Delhomme. "He's taught me some things. He's super hard on himself and it kind of rubs off on the group. It makes us all better."

06-03-2007, 11:01 PM
I'm familiar with the term pompous. Along with name labeling is all you brought to the table. So lets' end this.

I don't understand what you have against fans being optimistic :confused:

This IS a Texans message board, ya know.....

We've made significant changes in personnel and the coaching staff...last year we saw players (minus David Carr) playing with heart...We have two very talented young players on the D-line, a young hungry stud at MLB, and a good young corner...When people talk about teams on the rise we have been getting a lot of mentions...

We have a QB who we are expecting to play well, he's shown leadership, he has the physical tools....even if you want to look at him as an unproven rookie should we not be excited about what we hope to be a positive change ? Should the Browns not be optimistic about getting Quinn ? Should the Cardinals not have been optimistic about Leinart ? It's like getting a highly touted QB right outta college....except this guy is a vet...one that has had a chance to sit, learn, and become more hungry...One that most thought was better than the guy he was sitting behind....

I don't understand your problem with fans being optimistic about their teams...Seems like you're either a troll, have a complex or lack the basic understanding of human nature...I dunno it may be all three:confused:

If reading post about how the Texans messed up, and how we're not going anywhere gets you off, last time I checked the Jags, Colts, and Titans all had sites. And if you're feeling really freaky and wanna hear how much of a bad mamma jamma David Carr is you're only a few keystrokes away from paradise over at the Panthers board...Thats where the action you seek is brutha...

No one makes you come to the place where the TEXANS fans are...and if someone is you need to get out of that situation...

When you're kids are born or if you have kids I hope you immediately expect good things from them and don't suck all the confidence out of their vibrant souls becuase they're unproven....

We have gone from the definition of insanity at the QB position to one that holds some uncertainty, but not as mush as year's past. Anyone that thinks we are worse off with Schaub has not been watching Texans' football for the last five years. The baby and the bath water are gone.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's virtually impossible to have a thread that doesn't discuss how our team has played in the past. And if we're going to discuss the past, Carr is almost always going to come up.

If we start talking about Schaub, then comparisons with previous QB performance are going to come up. If we try to talk about our line, the issue of sack responsibility last year comes up.

It's sad but it's true. It's going to take a while and some therapy, to get Carr out of our systems.

I think we can make a better effort. I don't see why the mere mention of Schaub allows carte blanche DC spewage. There's plenty on Schaub to discuss. His experience in the WCO. His preseason and regular season success. As well as the concerns regarding Matt's limited snaps. There's plenty to discuss, if there's a will to do so.

Exactly. The thing is that nobody has knighted him King Schaub. As a matter-of-fact, he's got the extra burden, as it probably should be, of proving himself to the fans before they immortalize him.

Everyone pretty much understands that he is unproven, but it is in that unknown that we place our optimism. The team is not static, and it is changing and evolving to reflect the Kubiak FO. Why a little blind optimism about the positive news out of Texansland is frowned upon I'll never understand. I guess some folks are just bitter and choose to continue living in the past.
