I did watch him. He may have been fast, but you are right when you say he would lock on sit there, like a statue. I have not seen Carr lock on this year and wait. I have seen him scramble for yards and avoid sacks.

Yeah I saw alot of would be sacks that David broke out of. The ones he got sacked on he didnt stand a chance, one that I stated before was a blind side blitzer that nodody even looked at or touched. David even moved out of the way of the brunt of that one avoid getting his back broken. This line needs to solidify fast or we are going to ruin this telanted mans career. I'm really getting tired of seeing him run for his life.

Carr is a better QB than Johnson will ever be, but they do share some traits. I have confidence Carr will do a better job with the rush as he evolves, but I'm not in denial that he has things to work on like most of you guys.

Vinny, Gannon was the toast of the town until someone found out how to get through the Oakland O-line and then he looked worse than Carr. No QB can withstand the lack of protection. If the QB doesn't have time he's going to look bad. We paid a lot of bucks for David and his arm. If all he's going to do is hand off and complete short passes because of lack of protection then you wasted a lot of money on him as your selection. Is David a Manning, right now I would say no, but I think he is a way above average QB who is not getting any time to complete his assignments. David has had to take a lot of hits and get right back up and go back into the huddle and that is not an easy assignment as you well know.

I wasn't talking about potential in this statement I was talking about what I've seen so far this season. He has 2 td passes so far and is on par for a 16 td season so 20 isnt out of the question. Also he led 80 and 81 yard drives late in that game, but its kind of hard to lead a great comeback when your defense can't get a stop to save their life and yourcoach calls running plays right up the middle of the field when time is running out.

One is the run establishes the pass and the other is the pass establishes the run. I believe our team fits the latter mode of operation, but we have not been as successful because of our O-line. This should have been a good year for us, but it has turned sour. I believe the changing of the blocking scheme to emphasize the run is the major reason why. AGAIN I'M NOT ADVOCATING NOT RUNNING. Its the primary emphasis on setting up to run and all its implications for the passing game that I'm complaining about.

Bye the way I appreciated your earlier comment that you would look closely at the game replays. I hope you do and I hope you see what I'm saying. I think its more of a problem than people realize.
I think your comment about line splits was one of your most astute comments you have ever offered up and show me you understand this stuff better than I thought you did. Good show.

I come with hard opinion but it's just me talking football with friends. Some of you guys blame the coaching. Some blame the line problems. Some guys blame Carr more for our lack of scoring. In reality none of us are probably right 100% but we all see different things and getting together on a message board and sharing our thoughts helps us understand the game better since two heads are generally better than one.

As to our ongoing debates, I told Infantrycak in a PM yesterday that I really kind of enjoy being in the minority view and a devil's advocate on message boards. You guys who disagree with me help me evolve my thinking if and when you can break down my posture on a subject. It's all good. We all learn from each other and multiple points of view drive great threads.

Well, I don't buy it yet. Those 4th quarter drives were not that impressive when you bust down the situations. I posted this at hpf earlier...but I will bring it here now...

Let's look at the 4th quarter activity. The Bradford TD was a blown coverage and the Texans only had one possession after that when we were down by two scores after Harrington drove his team down the field and iced the game with a TD pass to Williams in the most critical part of the game (we are behind 28-16 at that point).

After that the Lions were in a soft prevent and sitting on a two score lead and they gave us many of those underneath passes. We took the rest of the quarter to drive down the field and not score. Sure the passess were complete but what did it net? I mean, I can see the completion % has improved but look at the situation in the game as to what the real action was behind the stats.

4th Quarter starts

Houston Texans continued.
2-7-HST 49 (15:00) 37-D.Davis right end to DET 49 for 2 yards (92-S.Rogers).
3-5-DET 49 (14:20) 8-D.Carr pass to 88-D.Armstrong to DET 42 for 7 yards (25-F.Bryant). P16

1-10-DET 27 (12:26) 8-D.Carr pass to 85-C.Bradford for 27 yards, TOUCHDOWN. P18
TWO-POINT CONVERSION ATTEMPT. 8-D.Carr pass to 86-J.Gaffney is incomplete. ATTEMPT FAILS.
There was a blown coverage here and Carr spotted it as Bradford backs in to score. Way too early to go for two here. Nearly a full quarter of football left and with a Detroit field goal we would have been down by eight. Turns out they scored a TD and was ahead by 12 so it was a moot point but if they kicked a field goal that would have forced us to go for two again just to tie. If we took the one point pat we would not have been forced into taking a 2pt conv had they kicked the field goal. I was amazed we went for two at this point. This was a very questionable coaching decision imo.

Infantrycak, I will grant you his raw stats improved but we had the ball two times in the 4th quarter and only scored on a blown coverage. The last drive was a ton of gimmie passes and we still didn't get the TD to give us a shot to win it.

The real impressive drive was Harrington's drive at 12:20 to ice the game and leave us with 4:20 and a two score margin. Carr then drove the field against a soft zone and didn't puch it in while Harrington drove the field and threw a TD pass to Williams to ice the game against a defense that was not in a soft prevent defense.

Ive never sated that Carr has arrived, Ive simply stated that hes gotten alot better and will continue to get better and mature as the team gets better and mature around him. Also don't be in denial about the line play right now its really starting to scare me. BTW how many times has Carr been sacked this year

Look, David Carr is still maturing. I still expect him to throw as many TD's as INT's. Im just hoping for more touchdowns this year, more yards, and a higher completion perecentage. Now, if hes still doin this stuff at his 7th year, maybe you can speculate, but untill then you can't.

Vinny, please. Let's give Carr credit for stepping up in the pocket and spotting that busted coverage. Let's not discredit that TD. I'm sure many QB's enjoy taking advantage of busted coverage, and still count those as legit TD's. Also, didn't Carr hit AJ for a sideline bomb, only to get jobbed by the refs. That would have put us inside the five, and more than likely would have led to a TD.

Look, you are a Carr apologist and a big fan of the dude so that's all cool. I break down what I see and I'm not overly impressed to date although I feel much better about him today than I did a year ago. Perhaps you are right and I am wrong. You keep apologizing for our lack of TD's and I will continue to post what I see in real time. To me, I see that most of your posturing is about what he is going to do one day and most of my posts are about what he is doing right now. I just tend to break down what I see more than gloss about what we may become.

Its a team game and I realize that Carr needs help. I just wish I had ONE game where he had great drives to win a game for us with his arm. If I had a couple of games where he totally takes over the game and puts the team on his back Id probably be less cynical about the guys upside.

A td is a td, I expect a good qb to take full advantage blown coverage that what he is supposed to do. Also if you want to nick pick situation what about the blown call on the AJ pass. That was in double coverage and not a gimmie pass and could of set up a 3rd td. The point is I really don't know why we're talking about this. David didn't lose us the game, he played good and had a good game. Our defense, special teams, and excessive turnovers cost us the game.

I know why we are talking about him.....because you guys tend to blame the coaches and the line and give Carr a free pass.

Like I said...you may be right. Carry on. It's all good.

In other words there are bigger fish to fry right now. Also Im not a "Carr" fan I'm a fan of this team. I just very patient and I know it takes time to develop a quarterback especialy one that was put in the circumstances that he was. I'm not out there saying Carr is a Probowler right now. I'm just stating that hes playing better this year and I'm happy with his play this season and I'm excited to see how much he'll grow over the course of this season.

I not giving him a free pass its more of a "grace" period that ends at the end of this year. Look if he doesn't make significant improvement I'll be the first one to start questioning, but as of right now its just to soon. Second on blaming the coaches alot of people tend to do that after two disapointing losses. I'll admit I was a little hard on them but I was pissed and needed to vent. Although there were some questionable calls in that game.

You make solid points. I think that I am a bit on the fringe as it pertains to this topic but I thought we needed a minority view on this and I don't mind being the bad guy.

I enjoy any debate good or bad especialy when you get both sides of it. Just wish those damn texans can scratch out a win and a streak at that so this board won't be so negative. I'm tire of talking about losing. Well it was good chating with you, got to go paint my living room now damn I hate painting.

Don't worry about Vinny. He is just part of that Fringe element we hear the news people talk about. :-)
