    Is it possible for Carr to pass for 5 000 yds? With AJ, Moulds (?) DD, Bush(?), Putzier and Walters available. These guys do not drop many and I think DC will go crazy. I know Kubes likes to run, but man these guys can be some horses! Ideas?

    is it possible...sure...is it likely...no...i think a good season stat for carr would be around 3600+yds with around 28tds and 10ints...but here's the key to all of that...absolutely no more than 30 sacks this season for carr

    Possible, of course. Kubiak loves the run to much for a 5k season.

    Wow, that's less than 2 sacks per game. You sure are optimistic. Hope you are correct.

    honestly i got to say no. look at the offense we may be running next year. DD and Bush are too big of threats to not get the ball into their hands. Kube ran a run first/ pass second offense in denver, and he almost had 2 1000yrd rushers and still had a 1000yrd WR (i think that Smith did). And honestly, DD and Bush have way more upside than bell and anderson (not to mention younger). Kube is all about clock control and if we have those two running the ball why would we pass? he is getting the offensive line in check, and imagine if we drafted Darryn Colledge. thats our Matt Lepsis of the future right there.

    Do not expect an immediate 7 to 8 game turn around this year, because we haven't really touched the D, and we were last in the league in that category last year too. i give Buch one more year at CB, then he is toast. we will get a FS in the draft next year that will be worth a damn, and then we will have an actual contender to root for:yahoo:

    i am new to the boards here so if i am wrong on anything let me know, but i just wanted to get my:twocents: in

    GOOOOO TEEXXANNSSSS!!!!!!!

    Kube loves to run the ball, because without the run established you cannot expect to pass the ball successfully. If defenses have to respect your running that means that safety and or linebacker that would fall back into coverage has to come closer to the line and Play Action is successful then as they will hesitate allowing the WRs to get behind the linebackers and have a better chance of 1 on 1 coverage with one of the sides as an option.

    The way I see it defenses are going to have to pick their poison. They will double AJ naturally or at least try to hide it. This will allow 1 on 1 with Moulds (if he gets here) and walter in the slot which until they respect him for the WR he is will get several catches behind the linebackers and in front of the safeties. especially of they try to cheat and slide over to Moulds on the pump fake. Then they will start to play the middle more allowing Bush to hit the outside as Walter takes his blocks in and AJ or moulds sets him free!!!!

    I know everybody will pitch a fit for this, but I say yes:

    IF we run that kind of offense that has him throwing the ball enough.
    IF he proves to be the kind of quarterback I believe he can and will be.

    Two big ifs, but I think he can do it.

    I could think of over a 100 Qb's that I think could do it before bringing up Carr. Do I still think he coud do it? Nope.

    By the way it has only been done once:
    Most Yards Gained, Season
    5,084 Dan Marino, Miami, 1984
    4,830 Kurt Warner, St. Louis, 2001
    4,802 Dan Fouts, San Diego, 1981

    Everyone is painting Kubiak a certain way, but if you remember he has said he will do in effect what seems to be right. If we need to pass to win that's what we will do. If we need to run to win that's what we will do. The Texan's offense has the potential to be right up there with the rest of them. We will just have to see how it comes together.

    I think that if Carr ever does that, it will be at least 2 yrs. from now. I've been on his side and I believe he will improve drastically this year, but I would be shocked if he did that well so soon after that train wreck last year.

    I think that Carr will pass for 5000 yards easy, on several XBox 360 consoles around the city. :redtowel:

    Assuming he stays healthy, I would expect about 4000yds: 250 yds per game. Man, I'm excited about the season now!!!

    5,000 yards is too high to be even a possibility in my book. The most passing yards by a qb last regular season was only 4110. With Kube's run first system and splitting carries between DD and Bush(?) I would be very happy if Carr were able to even come close to 4000. If Carr gets a new season high for his career (current best is 3531 in 2003) it should end all the debate of if he is the future or not. I am not a huge Carr fan but I will surely be rooting for him!

    No possible way. Like the person said, only Marino has done it. As good as the offense looks, I don't think they are as good as the Colts are or as the "Greatest Show on Turf" was with the Rams. 3500 yards would be nice though.

    Yeah, I'm thinking 4000 should be an attainable, but not easy, goal for this year. Of course, the play-calling may limit that.

    PS-Um, dalemurphy....I don't think Capers is coming back. :)

    5,000 is a little much, I think if everything goes right it will be between 3,700 and 4,200 IF that. Hopefully we wont have to air it out at the end of the games playing catch-up and just run the clock out to seal the win...:drool:

    I think some of you are getting a little carried away. 5000 yards? Get real folks.

    I don't care about pass yards or run yards, I just want a winning team that makes it to the playoffs.
