Discussion in 'Texans Talk' started by nunusguy, Mar 21, 2007.
Just dropped by to chat with Lance and John.
So, fat is bad.
Just said that it pisses him off when everything gets blamed on the O-Line. That's how it was the first 4 years. Said that any one of 11 guys can cause sacks.
And he didn't appreciate the ESPN spots a couple years ago when Carr
lined up behind an invisible OLine. Especially from people (ESPN) who know
nothing about football.
Chester is articulate and personable as usual. Hopefully we hear and see more of him this year. He is open and candid and has a good personality for this.
Agreed. I cannot hear his interview due to work blockage, but last year he had a very candid, informitive interview with John and Lance. He's a very smart guy, and is good behind the microphone.
Good to hear. Looks like they don't all just take it in stride and think some others are infallible. Glad there is a guy who speaks his mind and who can be an informative mouthpiece while being entertaining.
Hopefully, they will audo vault this.
I agree with Chester.
The lead into this was that they glossed that Carr is taking the blame for the troubles this offseason and Chester spoke up and said, yeah, NOW as in, 'yeah finally'. He said it was a frustrating 4 years when everyone blamed the line and Carr got no blame at all. You could tell that Carr isn't thought of too highly in the locker room when it comes to his play on the field.
You tell em Chester, show em why I've got a #69 jersey!
I don't blame Chester. When your QB sacks himself half the time, and you have a poor blocking RB in DD/W combined with a majority of people who automatically equate sacks with the offensive line, my hackles would be up too.
Carr homers will just sweep this bit of information under the rug.
Of course Carr haters think it is all his fault and the line did everything perfect.
Now we're talking some football - just when the hour ends. Dang !
Chester said when Kubiak came in, he promised to make the texans a winner,
and Pitts clearly wants that more than anyting else.
Said he enjoyed going up agaisnt Freeny more that the more pyhsical type ? I think he said that, then the show ended ? Said Henderson with the Jags is, physically, the toughest opponent for him.
Chester is really a sharp young man, with gobs of personality.
That is great!!I'm sure this won't register with some on here and this thread will be skipped.
Agreed. There has been too much said over 2 years that leads me to believe it is more than just a few.
His background story is awesome. I'll try to recap as I remember from the interview. There's a lot that I never heard.
He didn't play football in high school because he went to a math and science academy that didn't have a team.
He already had a daughter at age 18. He went to SD State and got a full-time job at Ralph's so he could get a union job and medical insurance for her.
Some of the football players (Salaam, Kyle Turley, Az Hakim) came in to pick up a keg for a party on a Friday night. He told them that he tried to walk on and got brushed off. He told them about how bad that he wanted to play and got a phone call the following week from the team.
The rest is history.
The offensive line has at least shown progress since the Texans inception. I don't believe Carr is any better now than he was as a rookie.
Nope, most just want the excuse "if we could get a better line" to stop.
I mean just last week there were people in threads denying that anyone called Carr out or that he was on the block. People had to post quotes. I just think people need to be smarter about what is going on with the team.
