Mike Leetch for Head Coach ... seriously.

Art Briles for Offensive Coordinator... seriously.

I'd rather lose 48-42 than 48-0.

Bruener released a rushing LB and just trotted downfield on one as well. I guess he expected Carr to dump to him when he released, but it left Carr's blind side exposed and he didn't see it coming until it was too late. It was just poor execution and communication all the way around.

Vinny, I also saw Wells and Double D miss blitzes. Why don't they do with one less receiver and put Morris in with Double D to help block. May would give you a chance to hit a quick pass or hit a tight end. Our tight ends were the leading receivers of the game. A couple of passes to them---then they quit throwing to the TE's.

On the whole, none of the blocking was adequate on Sunday. People focus on sacks because it's a measurable statistic. The pressures cause just as many problems. Carr is to blame for at least one sack that I can think of, but the underlying problem is really why I have been saying that the coaching staff deserves to be cut. It really is no different than training any animal - you hit it enough and it will cower whenever it gets close to you. You harass and sack a QB enough and he will become gun shy, develop happy feet, and never develop the mental facets that are required to play QB in the NFL. The foundation of this offense is broken and Carr may well be ruined for good. I place the blame of that on the coaching staff.
Regarding the QB spy question - from watching the game (can't bear to review the Tivo, sorry), I commented at the time about that. However, it wasn't really a QB spy. It was a DD spy. Posey was spying on the DD dumpoff for much of the game. So yeah, when there's a spy on the QB, something is usually open (usually the flats or the TE). On this day, however, Posey moved with DD pretty well and we have no TEs (although Bruener and Murphy each caught one, IIRC).
Very insightful, I especially liked the analogy between Carr and Pavlov's Dog.
Actually, that dog drooled instead of cowering now that I recall, but same thing. Come back more often Doc.

How much money would it take to get Ron Jaworski to come here as the QB coach? We're going to need one when Palmer gets fired.
Now that was pretty damn good foresight, I give you props.

Would the one sack be the one where the Steelers rushed 5 and Carr had all 5 in his face before he could take a 3 step drop? Seems like WAY too many blown assignments. At least something is being done to shake up things. Can't wait for Cinci.

Thanks. I must confess, though, that I was also predicting 9 wins this year. So, my foresight is obviously quite limited.
