The Texans O was in the top third--i.e. a lower number of penalties--of the league on penalties this year. Most of the false starts were due to undisciplined play, see Chester Pitts as example A.
If this offense with the check downs is too confusing for Carr then I seriously would have grave concerns that he can ever be even a decent NFL QB. The single thing that contributes most to Manning being great is his ability to read D's and then react at the line of scrimmage. Don't remember seeing Carr ever approach the level of involvement Manning has and oh by the way, the Colts had exactly the same number of offensive penalties the Texans had this year.
