Yes that interception in the endzone was a poor decision, but ask yourself this question...if the texans had played an outstanding game against dallas, would you have praised them for their improvement? Or merely shrugged it off as "only preseason"?

I am familiar with KC Joyner "The Football Scientist" and I don't think I disagreee with anyone more than him. Attempting to quanitify nearly every aspect of the game with shaking premises does not make you a scientist.

A with a side order of D.

A, because you could see what they were trying to do... but just didnt quite execute. If the receivers had been in the right place on a couple of throws.. and hadnt dropped a couple of other ones.. we would be praising Carr's greatness right now.

D, because we dont play half as hard in preseason, or use half the playbook. I know we all want to make judgements based on preseason performance.. but you just cant. They arent playing to win.. (not really anyway) and when you arent playing to win.. you cant say whether or not someone is doing the right things to win games.

Why are the results the same in the regular season as the preseason?
Capers does not 'coach to win.' He coaches 'not to lose.'

huh? was there a regular season game that i missed?

And that old "coaches not to lose" thing.. that was the whine last year.. time to move on. Capers coaches to win.. he just doesnt coach to win by 5 touchdowns.. he coaches to win through defense and clock control.

If preseason is to evaluate players, how do you play 'half as hard' and
make the team? That's got to be tough on the coaches...

the players arent playing half as hard.. but the team iteself isnt playing to win.. that is where i get the "half as hard" statement.

Its preseason.. the point of preseason is just to get reps and work on rythme..and evaluate players. If it was a regular season game we would have spent hours studying tape to find out what about the Cowboys we can exploit.. we would have run different plays and probably wouldnt have taken certain risks.

We certainly wouldnt have done a mock 2 minute drill at the beggining of the second quarter.

You simply CANNOT judge a teams capabilities based on preseason performance.

I am going to say A. However I like the fact that carr had such a bad game and still we scored 10. Its good to know that on the worst day of our starting QB we can still make something happen.

None of the above. He will have bad halfs again. If he plays the whole game this way for 4 quarters, then, i will be concerned. If he plays several games this way during the regular season, then, i ask, do we resign him? The offense did not look ready to play, from the penalties, to bad passes, bad decisions, etc.
Coaches should have had this group ready to play.
