Default Will Carr's insight be an advantage?

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/5130886.html

Quote:
The Carolina Panthers might as well have the Texans' entire playbook, because David Carr, Carolina's new backup quarterback, knows every nuance of his old team's offense. It was ingrained into his head last season.

And even though Carr likely won't help the Panthers on the field Sunday, the Texans are sure he is doing all he can off the field to try to give his new teammates an edge.

"He's on the Carolina Panthers," Texans center Steve McKinney said. "I don't think we're paying him anymore. I'm guessing he would be doing everything he can to help them win."

But it's not exactly worrying any of the Texans.

"You can know what you want to know, but you have to stop it on the field on Sunday," Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson said. "I used to have a coach in high school who told me, 'I don't care if they know what we're doing. If they can't stop it, then they just can't stop it.' They have to go out and stop us on Sunday. He can tell them whatever he wants."

It's common around the league for new players on a team to share information about their former teams. How much of an edge it gives them is debatable.

Hopefully he wasn't paying attention to what Kubes taught him.

Maybe he'll tell them the game plan is a series of 3 yard completions, dumpoffs, and QB sneaks.

Dont see what he could tell them that would be key in defeating us. Hope he finds a way into the game. That'd be a lot of fun.

uhh, No.......

& john fox would be absolutely nuts to listen to him, when everything they need to know about the 07' texans is on film from the KC game & from the denver game.

It's just going to boil down to execution & play-making; things that DC had trouble with while he was here.

I guess this would imply he thourghly understood the playbook, which if he did he would still be here. He's probably telling them to watch for the dump off pass to DD and Bradford going deep.

Default Re: Will Carr's insight be an advantage?

I am not going to slam David on this...but I would say that his insight would be worth nothing, as the Texans have a new QB and I am sure Kubiak and Co. changed alot of what was in the playbooks the previous years. Yeah, some things David might recall, but if the team is still running plays and setting up certain ways after a few years, then I would expect them to lose, as David isn't the only player let go to catch on with another team...

It's not Carr that they need to worry about, it's about executing the plays that are called from the sidelines....

Probably not. This stuff happens every single year. The Panthers will still have to execute even if they know what might happen on a particular play. It's not like they don't already look at game film. This is simply an article that was written to put David Carr's name in our paper. Totally over rated.

Default Re: Will Carr's insight be an advantage?

For the most part, the plays that Carr used and the plays that Schaub uses are, perhaps somewhat the same in theory, but certainly not the same in practice. I don't think Carr has a clue. This was just a filler piece to get folks all riled up over nothing. A little journalistic sensationalism for lack of anything better to write about.

We have a few things to worry about this Sunday, but Carr certainly isn't one of them.

What insight?

Seriously. Carr had a lot of qualities going for him, but in the end, it was the between-the-ears part that got him run out of town. /Mora Insight? We're talking about insight? /Mora off

His insight into how not to run an offense, if passed along to the Panthers, could be quite helpful for us on Sunday.

Let's not forget that Schaub has studied the Carolina defense twice a ear for the previous 3 seasons. That can't hurt. And Boulware was part of shutting down Steve Smith in the NFC championship game a couple of years back. Really, all of that stuff evens out. What's important is stealing the other teams signals.

I can see it now:

Watch out though it could be a trick play were they dump it off to DD.

Dang I forgot about Carr giving up our game plan. Now all our hopes for a run by the QB out of bounds for a 2 yard loss have been dashed. I just hope Carr didn't tell them about plan B... QB play-dead on 2.

I think we have a program in the works to prevent the signal stealing... Schaub and Demeco are learning to speak Navajo before Sunday's game.

Default Re: Will Carr's insight be an advantage?

Carr's insight? Carr is a mental midget mimbo. He doesnt have any insight about the Texans that can be qualified as a competitive advantage.

Did you hear him interviewed about his time in Houston. That little primadonna was like 'You know we had a lot of fun there for 5 years but I had had enough. With the draft situation and everything I just dont know. Let someone else do it.' How pathetic he is and he basically blames his failure on the Texans drafting Mario and not VY. Like that was too much for him to handle and insinuates that it was a bad move (which is debatable but still he threw Mario and Kubes/McNair under the bus with that quote). A quitter and its obvious he still thinks its everyone elses fault but his. No accountability, no self reflection, just basically saying 'the Texans suck. I was there for 5 years and you couldnt pay me to stick around and try and turn that sinking ship around'

Well with Schaub we have a guy who is willing to rise to the occasion and isnt afraid of commitment to football, competition, and challenges. Carr only cares about his wife and kids. He doesnt care about football, he doesnt care about the fans, and he doesnt care about his career. He is happy collecting money as the backup and that tells me all I need to know about that pile of crap.

If anyone has a link to Carr's actual quotes, I would appreciate it as I was paraphrasing from memory from 11pm last night. They need to be posted on the chalkboard in the lockerroom with a special copy taped to Mario's locker.

From what I've read, the only insight Carr could give is on the quickest route out of Reliant Stadium after practice. Everyone in the league already knows the rest. If not, maybe the Patriots will send them a DVD of our signals.

Memo to Carr: The 2007 Texans playbook has more than two pages now.

Maybe he can teach Jake that patented fetal curl position that protects the face during a pass rush. He's an expert on that one.
