Carr has a wonderful arm and has the ability to get away from a defender but anyone watching the game can see some flaws in his game. I think the team is doing what the personnel does well at this time. I would think that we would struggle to reach .500 if we had a more wide open offense with our line flaws and QB problems that result from them.

We need a TE that does not tip the play and can actually block and catch. This will help out Carr in the Red Zone and bring his TD's up to a more normal, expected level in year 4. Carr needs help, and I think he will be fine for us long-term but just because you like a certain offense or your favorite player is David Carr doesn't mean the coaches are using him absolutely wrong in my book.

I agree with some of the complaints though. I think we should use AJ like the Chargers use Antonio Gates. I'd love to see us move him all over the field and perhaps split in the back field (over the Tackles) with Davis at times, but the team has a real tough time doing simple things. Perhaps they will diversify their offense as the team proves it can handle basic formations and plays first (only partial sarcasm used here).
I think Vinny is right for the most part. We can't consistenly get AJ the ball w/ out an o-line. When Carr has time he can look receivers off, spread the ball around and free up AJ and get him the ball. I wouldn't say Carr is a problem, but even though I think he's a great QB and will get better, he does have flaws(consistent leadership/better audibles/touch on short passes are the main problems I see) and I hope he hasn't been hit to many times to never give him confidence in the pocket, this has to be a concern for the future.. We sure could use a balanced TE, it would help stretch the field and help in the redzone. I don't like the coaches, but they only can call a limited amount of plays due to our poor o-line play, however the poor play on the o-line has to be reflected on the coaches as well. I only hope our o-line is why the offensive scheme isn't working other wise we have the worst coaches around. I also think we could be more creative, things couldn't have gotten much worse at times this past year so why didn't we try different things?However, lets see what the OFFENSE/CARR/COACHES can do w/ a decent line and balance TE. I hope we can address these needs and move on to better things.

Hasn't Katy been the most successful program in Texas the past 10 or so years?

First, Palmer takes his orders and style of offense directly from Capers. Under a different head coach, Palmer would run a different offense. Do you follow me?

Secondly, after only three years, we don't have ALL of the personnel needed to run a consistent offense. Why, exactly, is this Palmer's fault? I guess you want to fire Casserly, too, because he didn't find all of the talent we need to win the Superbowl in our third season?

Thirdly, learn football. If you had a clue, you would understand that your calls to fire coaches and start from scratch would set this team back 2-3 MORE years, and by then, you'll be calling for more heads to roll.

I think I'll refrain from posting in any more "fire Palmer" threads because they are nothing but silliness.
Agreed. When Chris Palmer was offensive coordinator for the Jags we routinely had one of the best offenses in the league.
