Default Richard Justice's comments on Chris Palmer on 610 This Morning

I dont know if this has been posted, but on the bench this morning justice commented that:

-at the end of the season, the powers that be (mcnair, cass, and capers?) sat Chris Palmer down and had a intervention-type meeting with him to do whatever it takes to drastically improve the blocking schemes in the offensive line. Justice later said that he heard palmer say off the record that he didnt feel like the blocking was bad last season and that Carr did not get sacked all that much.

If this is true, I really feel bad for Carr...

Weird. I just posted in a thread on this very topic. I think Palmer is on the hot seat this season. If the offense doesn't improve drastically and Carr takes a pounding, I expect him gone.

The blocking was not that bad? I guess that was a figment of my imagination when I saw Carr running around against Indy twice and against Cleveland in particular.

Is it my imagination or did the Texans run on first and second downs 85 to 90% of the time? Defense just knows what Palmer is going to call. Gives them the edge regardless of how the Oline plays or who is playing IMO.

It is a false perception. It SEEMS like they run on 1st and 2nd down all of the time but time and again we have looked at the stats and they are actually balanced.

It's your imagination. Look up the play by play on nfl.com

I think part of the reason for this perception is that we seem to often call a running play when a pass is clearly called for. How many off tackle run plays have been called on 3rd and 8 in the Texans first three years? :brickwall
Maybe there are legit reasons for this, such as the inability to keep the rush off of Carr, nevertheless, a more thorough analysis of down and distance run vs. pass would shed a lot more light on this perception imo.

If CARR gets sacked 20+ times in 6 games OR he is hurt from someone sacking him, I think Palmer might be enjoying new job.

Considering we basically had a rookie LT, the starting right side of the line had a ton of injuries and McKinney. Not to mention that they were all learning the zone blocking scheme.

Finally, a line that'll do something to protect David Carr!

I just can't believe Palmer would've said something so stupid. No way that's accurate. But if it is, I'll fly home to join that picket line, boys.

Angry I don't understand protection schemes

What happened last year??? Did we play a lot of 3,4,5 reciever sets like the rams?? Are people on this board calling for more max protection set? What's the solution to Carr's sack totals.

I think it maybe our tight end formations. From what I hear on here, it sounds like if we get Joppru on the field, then the defenses now start guessing, instead of already knowing the plays before DC says "HUT".

Thank you cougar!

The TE shuffle is our achilles heel. If They knew Miller only comes in on passing situations, they knew to bring everyone in a pass rush. An everydown TE will do wonders for Carr's sack total next year. "In Joppru We Trust" However I hope they bring in a lot of young tight ends into camp and see if we can find a good one.
