Yeah stats can lie but now two are on my list for most accurate stats, turnover ratio and giving up sacks (credit to Lucky for digging this up):

Quote:
NFL Starting QBs sacked on average of 2X or less/game - 61 TDs 32 INTs

NFL Starting QBs sacked on average of over 2X/game - 43 TDs 41 INTs

NFL Starting QBs sacked on average of over 3X/game - 10 TDs 15 INTs

On average, David Carr is sacked 3.33 times a game. Now that's horrible.
The Texans need to do two things--(1) develop a better OL through gelling or schemes this season plus off-season additions for next year and (2) reacting to the progress of number one--develop offensive schemes to go with the progress of the OL, i.e. don't react to fan pressure to throw the bomb all the time, instead go to quick passing schemes like the Patriots run.

That's what I was thinking, but I see now Vinny was referring to the end of last season to the first two games of this season.

I don't think Carr's picks have anything to do with getting sacked this year. 3 of them are because of poor throws, and the other one was batted at the LOS. I saw the other 3 picks and they were just bad throws. Sure, Gaff fell down on the one in KC but that throw wasn't high enough and could have easily been picked if he remained on his feet.

I will 100% agree with you on the sack average - that is way too high in order to be great offense. But the picks that Carr has thrown this year IMO have not been the direct result of poor O-line play. They were just simply poorly thrown passes.

I wouldn't look at it so much from the INT standpoint, but rather the TD. Carr gets way more pressure than probably any QB in the league. The stats Cak put up show that with good protection you will see more TD passes.
