ATTN: Chris Palmer - Re: The art of suprise
 
I think you are somehow trying to suprise the other team by running on 2nd and long plays. I just wanted to let you know that the opposing team usually looks at the tape of previous games, and they quickly figure out that you like to run the ball with your mediocre running back(sorry, he is) in situations most teams would pass, it is especially laughable considering your running back has yet to have a run over 15 yards.

Thanks, venting is fun.

yeah i dont know if you have been reading the other posts but its a big complaint around here !!! Not very creative is he ??? I guess he thinks teams dont remember stuff like that,,,i've seen them run it on 3rd and 25,,,kinda funny but frustrating !

I decided to delete what i wrote to Palmer because it wasn't very nice of me to say these things to him...i'm not a hurtful person...but the coaches do need to get their act together....

TexansTrueFan 11-22-2004 10:44 AM

that was me who said that,,,but the high school team lost to,,,hmmm palmer sticks with his old ways (even thought it was in the script) !!!! na he is more worried about money than bringing the playoffs or a winning season to houston !! Kiss this year good by and hope he opens up the play book MORE next season !

the art of suprised was stopped my Al Harris... he did an awesome job staying home and reading the reverse and seeing Carr streak down the sideline for a fleaflicker
Got to give credit where credit is due.

TheOgre 11-22-2004 10:49 AM

We had what 3 or 4 variations on the reverse in the game? That is a play that has diminishing returns.

shinerbock_girl 11-22-2004 10:54 AM

I haven't seen that movie but i'd bet anything he used the same plays in the movie as he used for the Texans... :rofl:

What movie is everyone talking about? Chris Palmer was in a movie during the middle of our season?

By the way. . . I made 25 bucks at the game last night betting on which play Palmer was going to call. I loved the two running plays on 1ST and 2nd and long. It is very sad when we know what he's going to do. . . and we know what he's going to do, because he calls the same ridiculous calls over and over again. THERE IS A REASON TEAMS PASS ON 1ST AND 15, AND SECOND AND 18.....

GO TEXANS....I STILL LOVE YOU EVEN IF YOU DON'T WIN ANYMORE GAMES, BUT SOMETHING, I MEAN SOMEONE, NEEDS TO CHANGE

shinerbock_girl 11-22-2004 02:05 PM

No he wasn't in a movie, he directed all the football plays for the movie Tim McGraw was in called "friday nite lights"...It's out now in theatres....I deleted my post about him because after i thought about i didn't think it was very nice just because i was upset about the game....but my opinion still is that his attention should have been more on the Texans then his movie...

El Tejano 11-22-2004 02:33 PM

We ran 5 reverses in one game. 5 reverses in one game. Only two worked, only two worked.

The filming of Friday Night Lights was done in February/March 2004.

dwilt72 11-22-2004 04:01 PM

Dwilt, That is a ridiculous statement. . . No one passes on first and ten in this league. Whatís wrong with you? Donít you know you run on first and second and pass on third down?

ROOKIE!

BigDTexansFan 11-22-2004 07:58 PM

Throw on !st and Ten
 
We did on 1st play of very 1st game against Dallas, sure it helped Dallas player interfered with Bradford. BUT WE DID IT on 1st and 10 and have seen many teams mix it up to keep defense on toes

:banana:

Sometimes I wonder if some of you even watch the game.

Last night the Texans passed on 1st down 14 times and ran on 1st down 11 times.

The 1st down play call breakdown by quarter:

1st: Run 2; Pass 3
2nd: Run 5; Pass 5
3rd: Run 3; Pass 4
4th: Run 1; Pass 2

I counted 2 of Carr's scrambles as Pass plays because that's what they were before coverage forced him to run.

I hear you, and for the most part that is true. But how do you justify running on 1 and 15 and then again on 2 and 18 BACK TO BACK...I'm not sure if those were the exact numbers, but i think they are pretty close.

I'm not asking to be a smart a ss....I would really like to know, maybe there is something i am missing

aj. 11-22-2004 08:48 PM

I didn't like the fact that they ran on both of those plays either. In other words, I had a problem with at least one of those two calls.

My earlier point is directed at the criticism that there was some kind of shortage of 1st down pass plays last night.
