Aside of that I believe hes right on time. The most pleasant surprise for me is his mobility. He's no MVick but you can sure bet DCs around the league account for his mobility. Ok now I'll shut up.

I agree. Carr needs to slow it down a bit and put some touch on some of those throws...especially when a defender is no where in the area.

It seems to me that this will be an easy problem to fix though.......just waiting for it to hapepen.

Default first year of audables

I think it is funny that no one NO ONE talks about this being the first year Carr has been given the green light to change plays at the line. I think that is a huge change for him and I think more improvement will come. Also I think DD was too tentative after the ealry season fumbles, either Wells will get more playing time or another RB will be brought in. More dependablity from the TE will help as well

I still think Bradford could have got that ball, but it was zipped in there pretty damn hard at not a very far distance. His hands weren't even up though and he wasn't looking for the ball. He'll get better w/ his touch. You never see Favre take much off any throw though.

Coach Jim, he does throw balls to hard at times, but it doesn't happen that much, the guy just has a cannon and even on some short routes his receivers have tight coverage and the ball has to be rifled in there. I was mad at Bradford, but it was thrown awfully hard, however he wasn't even close to ready. He knows his QB throws hard and he needs to be ready. Maybe they should, put a little extra time in after practice working on those type of passes. And yeah Carr can run. He's probably 2nd or 3rd behind Vick at best in the league at scrambling. I believe he ran a 4.67 at the combine. Not bad for a guy 6-3 235 w/ a rocket arm.

Carr does audible to the run a lot. I'm not sure why. He's a gunslinger, w/ a gun slinger's mentality, so I'm not sure why when he has freedom to call 25% of the plays he doesn't audible to a pass more. Hopefully w/ a year of audibles and more confidence he'll make opportunities for himself and the offense. Through the air and on the ground when needed. He's smart enough to make good decisions I just don't think he's got the confidence yet. Maybe with a better line, a little more preparation, and another WR to compliment AJ his audibles will improve.

A better Oline is all that is needed. While on that topic also, does anyone else agree that our subs looked way more aggressive on the offensive line than our regular starters at the position?

I know that the o-line is all Carr and the Offense needs. Our Offense also needs Carr to become a more consistent leader. Carr looked so good early when he had just a little time and the WR had time to run their routes. Our subs run blocked more aggressively and played harder I think. The pass blocking still wasn't that good. McKinney has to go. And wiegerts replacement needs to be drafted to be ready for '07 or '08.

I saw in game graphic that Carr is the third rushing QB in the league at this time

Carr does rock, wait till he has the line and a WR to complement AJ, to go along w/ Gaffney/Armsrtong in the slots.

Carr does, at times, need to put a little more touch on the ball, but I remember another guy who used to have that problem. His name was Elway. Also, it's true that he sometimes looks a little dull in the head, but pass protection can do WONDERS for that. First thing I want to see is Carr audibling to a pass for a change and the line protecting him until the announcer says, "Wow, look at that. He's got all day to throw it." We need to hear that, because, when we do, even the media in the NE will be completely stuck on the name ANDRE JOHNSON, just like TO now, and just like Randy Moss the past coupla years.

First year he ran for his life, second year he missed a few games with injuries. I expected some growing pains this year, needs a little more time in the pocket. Needs to improve his passes on slants and crosses, throws behind receivers too often. He could be solid for us for a long time.

Thanks I'll do that next year, we have a VCR and it sucks so maybe I'll invest in something good next year so I won't miss a thing. Hopefully it will change my life as you say j/k

I beleive that Carr already has the wrs he needs to be successful. Armstrong was a great find by Charlie C., this guy probally has the best hands on our team, always came up with the big catch on a crucial 3rd down(sign of a special player) . Also people forget that Gaffney came out very young and this season he has really showed me something. I don't know what it is, but it just seems like he has developed a little attitude in his play kinda like he has something to prove. I don't know if it was because of AJs break out year, but it just seems like he's more motivated and pushing himself and is growing nicely into a #2 wr. I will go ahead and say this now, with all the defenses gearing to stop AJ, next year Gaffney is going to make them pay and surprise alot of people. I think what our Qb and wrs need the most is chemistry, the talent is already there. Do yall remember the jets game where Carr stepped back and then threw the ball to AJ and nobody was there because they were not on the same page and the refs threw a flag for intentional grounding. During last offseason we were all hearing stories on how Johnson stood in front of a throwing machine for hours at a time to really work on his hands and boy did it ever work I love his work ethic. Why not stand in front of the real thing. I mean I would love to hear stories of Carr and his wrs going away somewhere during the offseason away from all domestic distractions and other teamates and stricly working on routes and their timing. Especially timing, most bad throws are a result of bad timing. If they did this I beleive the offense would benefit tremendously, especially in the audible department.

In case yall haven't noticed I haven't spoke at all about Bradford. This is because in a contract year ,a year where players usually try to market themselves to the team and others with their play on the feild. He has shown me only one thing, that we don't need him in 05 unless we sign him for depth and its a one year deal for the minimun. Its time for the veteran to step aside and let these young wrs grow and prosper, especially Gaff and Armstrong. Everytime we are in a three reciever set next year it needs to be Aj, Gaff, and Armstrong.

Carr Bomb, I really like our WR's, I think Gaffney and Armstrong are solid. Would just like to see another deep threat/speed guy (like a Calico/Burleson) to complement AJ. I almost like Armstrong better than Gaffney. I think they're both good. Your right next year our 3 WR set will be pretty impressive. What are your thoughts on that? I wouldn't want Gaffney as our 2 because he doesn't stretch the field. He's a solid 3 and I think Armstrong will push him. Would also like a TE upgrade, but I'd still be okay w/ same guys for 1 more year. Good point about the chemistry they need to work out on their routes it would pay dividends. Good points, Go Texans.

I Think Carr Has Really Improved This Year, Ive Reviewed Some Of The Games This Year And Looked At Carr Hes Emerging As A Star/leader For Sure Look In His Eyes Theres A Star For Sure !!! Also I Noticed 7 Ints From Carr Were Tipped Not His Fault ,,plus We Play Way To Safe In The Redzone We Really Do If We Look Back U Could Given Carr Probaly Another 6 Or 7 Tds ....but What I Disliked Most Of All This Year Was The Playcalling It Really Hurt Carrs Numbers And The Texans Victories E.g. We Tied The Vikes Thanx To Carr And The Wr's And We Win The Toss And Capers Wants To Run Run Run D.d.'s Great But Hes Easy To Stop When The Defense Knows Hes Going To Run On First Second And Third Down Yikes ...lets Open It Up A Lil'bit And Protect My Boy...and Youll Watch Carrs Texans Steam Roll Into The 06 Playoffs-out Ps Hey Fresno8 Im From Exeter ,ca Do You Know Where That Is? About 45 Niutes From You And 10 Mins From Visalia..........go Texans And Carr Rules

I'm in Fowler 15 min south of Fresno. Been to Exeter a few times. Nice town. My girlfriend has cousins who live in Exeter. Carr is on the rise. I too would like to see the play calling opened up. Do you have the NFL ticket to catch all the Texans games.

My opinion, CARR's THE MAN....He does have the potential to be a great QB, as he was compared to a young Farve many times....Hes maturing very well since he first started...Hopefully during off season he can learn from the mistakes he's made with bad passes and learn to be more consistent...Your QB is only as good as your O-line so they still need to work at protecting him better, you can't always blame it on Carr...Look how many times Manning's been sacked, which is rare, that confidence sure goes a long ways when you know you have the time to throw and can then be more consistent...IMO, he has gotten better every year...He is a leader, he just needed to get mad to discover that....LOL....I like him mad... it shows he's not just the Pretty Boy QB everyone thinks he is...I like the way he plays...He's got the youth, the athletic body, talent, desire to learn, and the brains...Iam looking forward to next year...If hes been getting better every year, then next years going to be even more fun to watch him...You Go Carr!!!!

David has progressed every year, but not as much as he should have or could have due to an o-line that he should sue for non-support. He isn't as quick on the trigger as he should be and doesn't progress as well through his reads as he should, but he is getting better at it. Given a reasonable facimilly of an o-line, he will be a top tier QB. Will he be a hall of fame type??? Who knows. We sometimes lose sight of the fact that we don't need hall of fame people to be a winning football team. Nice to have, fun to watch, but not needed to win.

Gaffney and Armstrong are both very good POSSISION type recievers and we are lucky to have them, but we need another deep threat opposit AJ to have a chance to really click in the passing game and a TE to work the middle of the field.
