Thumbs down Carr always audibles to a run! Predictable!

Why is it that everytime David Carr audibles, it is to a run (that is stuffed at the line of scrimmage of course).

It's so predictable everytime he changes the play at the line of scrimmage. And He's done this all year long.

I've been a big Carr fan, but before everyone jumps on palmer, let's look at Carr's decisions.

Yeah, what is with this FIRE PALMER stuff, when it is David who you shoud be complaining about? Why are are you Palmer critics not even focusing on the one who is REALLY calling the plays.

Because he's a player, and not a coach? Oh, I get it now.

He's given a running play, and a pass play. It's Carr who decides which one to run at the line. If you're going to question the play-calling, then at least be fair about it and include Carr if you want to point fingers.

well maybe we should get rid of David Carr?..He isn't showing any improvement anyway. we should trade him to detriot for joey harrington.

NO wait! i know what it is!

Its a bunch of ignorant couch QBs who think they know what is going on in the locker room!

oh btw.. it falls on both their heads.. Carr for calling an audible he should know wouldnt work.. and Palmer for not giving Carr a better selection.

He doesn't decide at the line which play to call. He gets the play and calls it in the huddle. If he sees something that thinks the play call won't work he will audible. They will have one or two plays to audible into and Carr does usually audible into a run. With the line problems I'd audible everytime to a run. He must be having 2002 flashbacks.

I'm confused. If the original play is a pass & he thinks a pass won't work, what else can he audible to? End arounds are basically a run and didn't do too well Sunday.

I don't believe this to be true.

I believe that Carr routinely audibles to "Now" routes as well. If Carr is at the line and notices that one of the WRs (usually Johnson) has soft coverage, he overrides the playcall (whether it is a pass call, or a run call) and takes the now route (the hitch passes at the line of scrimmage).

Against the Packers, Al Harris was usually in a press coverage and we didn't see "Now" routes, but in many games we see a lot of them, sometimes audibled to twice in a row.
