Funniest thing about #8 I heard was a texter on the 610 Adam Clanton experience. It read:

Signed 7 and 9.

Gotta agree. I was really disapointed that not only Schaub choose 8 but that the Texans let him. Sorry, I am not suspicious, but just from a marketing angle alone, I wouldn't have let Matt choose 8. Now, it appears that David Carr has taken over the body of Matt in some sort of invasion of the body snatchers horror flick. Yes, I will gladly sign any petition to make him change numbers.

When you have a bad OL and just an ok QB not great you aren't going to win IMO.

I don't think the OLine is all that bad. Granted Myers has not looked good at all and was worth a sixth round pick. We are missing Weary right now.

Other than that I have liked what I have seen from Brown. He has worked his tail off. Yeah sure, he has given up a few plays but that is to be expected of a rookie.

This is still an Oline that rushed for 145 yards on the number one ranked defense.

They do miss Weary.

And Matt is on the run a lot because his guys aren't open and the pocket starts to break down.

Matt had a vicious hit on him from a blitzer against Pittsburgh not because of a problem with the line but because of a missed block by Vonta Leach. Another time, Matt had no time to throw and got nailed because Winston whiffed on a block.

The line has to improve. The blitz pickups by the backs needs to improve (although Slaton has surprised me so far.) Schaub needs to make the right reads and put the ball in the right place quickly; early in the game he was making his reads TOO fast and putting the ball in the wrong place. Our receivers need to do a better job of getting free, which is why I think David Anderson is on his way back down the depth chart and Andre Davis is on his way back up the depth chart.

So, there's plenty of blame to go around. Everyone needs to step it up.

Have they done anything with Weary yet? I'd keep him around. Start Sage.

If they put an "8" with "CARR" above it in every urinal (I know they are the trough style but still) I would laugh my ass off. And this is coming from a guy who still thinks we screwed Carr up for life with the OL he played behind.

I find it a little sad to see all of the hatred for Carr on this board. It's so dense that you would think our team has dramatically improved since his departure, which it hasn't. Schaub has, in all honesty, done very little to prove that he is any better than Carr during the time he has spent here. Comparing Carr's 06 numbers to Schaub's 07 numbers really leaves one to just shrug.

No hatred involved, but there is a vast chasm between the suckitude of HWWNBN and Schaub's performance in '07.

Schaub would likely have thrown more touchdown's than Carr...but was on pace to throw more interceptions. Pick your poison.

Regardless of Schaub being a step up over Carr, there is a lot of hatred for Carr on the board. It is silliy and irritating watching some posters 'man up' and show their toughness mocking Carr. Let it go already.

To get back to a previous conversation about the 7-9 team and the 8-8 team, I have a thought experiment.

Most people say that the 8-8 team is much better. If Carr and Schaub were switched, I think the 7-9 team is easily better. Outside of QB, I don't see all that much overall improvement and steady progression around here.

Now, what was this thread about...
