Carr played in 28 during this span. I believe Culpepper, McNabb, Brooks, Brady played in 2-4 more... Hasselbeck and Bulger both missed a similar amount of time.

Imagine if this team held the lead more often in games and the defense was better. Just those facts alone would impact the sack total. Altering the protection scheme will impact the numbers as well. So, if the line doesn't improve but other areas of the team continue to, you can expect a sack total in range or better with some of the elite teams in the NFL.

THere is a common theme with these Qbs who have been sacked often the past 2 seasons:

1. good health
2. very mobile qbs,
3. or qbs who throw often from deep drops

David Carr fits all three of those descriptions and as a result has been sacked a fair amount of time the past 2 years.

Dale, nice post, I had no idea about those figures. Thanks for the good post.

1000+ yards is great, we just need to be able to run on 3rd downs when its 2-3 yards. what i'm getting at is when it was 3rd down and 3 last year, how many times did we run vs. pass the ball? when the opposing defense knows you're gonna throw it, they can go all out and rush you hard. thats what our problem has been since day 1. we can rush, hell even have back to back 1000+yard rushing seasons by DD, but how well can we run, when we really need to run? like in the 4th quarter and 3rd and short, we're horrible in those situations. i have faith however, that all of that has been growing pains thus far. this is the year for drastic improvement in our play. it may not show through wins and losses as much, but we should be alot more consistent.

I was just wondering since we got rid almost all of are veterans we should get some compensatory picks. Are those picks going to come in 2006 or in 2007?

I believe u only get compensatory picks for losing veterans through free agency. We wont get any cause we cut Sharper and Glenn.

Yeah, that's my understanding as well. It'll only be when people start walking at the actual ends of their contracts that we get compensatory picks.

Perception differs from reality once again. The Texans have run more on 3rd and 3 or less than passed. Last year DD ran on 3rd and 3 or less 15 times averaging 5.7 ypc. Add in Wells' 5 carries on 3rd and 3 or less (averaging 1.8 ypc--so much for the big back theory) for 20 runs on 3rd and 3 or less. Carr had 11 passing attempts on 3rd and 3 or less--which by the way was one of his most ineffective situations completing only 45.3% of his passes and getting sacked 3 times. Basically the Texans ran twice as often as they passed on 3rd and short last year so no one was assuming they were going to throw.
