Yes he was a great player and regardless of whether you want to accept it he had room for improvement part of which has been realized under the coaching he has received. 10 drops last year, 4 this year and much better route running this year--both of which were noted weaknesses coming out of college.

What about all of the other receivers who run bad routes and can't catch the ball when it is right in their hands? Are their fundamentals just being ignored by Palmer?
Really? Other than your perfect when he got here AJ with the miscommunication problem on the hokey intentional grounding call, which WR are you going to say runs bad routes?--give us some examples how about? As for hands are you refering to the corrected under this coaching AJ. Or is it Bradford with 1 last year and 2 this year. Or maybe Gaffney with 1 last year and 1 this year. Armstrong with 2 this year. Sorry but 1-2 drops is fantastic rather than an indication of a problem due to poor coaching.

Every time Carr tries a pass he gets killed.
3400+ yds (instead of 2600) and counting to the contrary, best ypa of his career up from 5.8 to 7.7, completion percentage up from 52 to 61.3, rating up from 62 to 83, 47 passes over 20 yds, 6 over 40 yds instead of 31 and 5 and 15 TD's rather than 9--all on two less passing attempts--yeah no improvement, no passing game.

The only running back that has produced is a healthy Davis with little thanks to the line.
Wells got one start and gained over 100 yds. IMO the OL coming together and improving is the single biggest need for next season. As I posted in another thread, I would be thrilled if the Texans would pick up the Chargers' OL coach, but with the exception of an upgrade for McKinney, I think the personnel are there.

All of the ineffectiveness and inconsistency points to one thing. Coaching! Right back where we started.
Well not really--you have provided a lot of easily disprovable assertions and nothing specific on what the coaches are doing wrong, what they need to do to have the team improve. Whoops, never mind, that is right back where we started.
