    How in the hell could Carr's play at QB be considered a positive? I can't stand stat mongers.....try looking at a scoreboard once in a while or actually watch a game....

    POSITIVES
    Mario showing a bit of heart at times
    Spencer's X-Rays came back negative
    Dayne looked good at times

    NEGATIVES
    Poor QB play until game was wayyyyyy out of hand
    Inconsistent OL and DL play
    Horrible play in the secondary
    Too Many Turnovers; Not Enough Takeaways (see Poor QB Play/Poor D)

    Great post, except when did Dayne look good? Gado looked good.

    I saw quite a few good RD runs. They gave him the ball 4 straight times and gained 19 yards on one drive..then Carr started, well, just being Carr. The game was still somewhat of a contest at the time too. I thought he looked good for his first week as did Gado. I would have traded Lundy and kept Morency....

    It's raining outside....Carr's fault.


    Get a grip. Carr is not the problem. When he has more than 2 seconds to throw, he's a damn good quarterback.

    He'll keep putting up great stats against 2nd and 3rd string Defenses in the 4th Q.

    In all seriousness (minus the idiot fans we have)

    Dayne looked pretty good.
     
  10. Wasn't that the hoora we heard about Sage this preseason about how good he did against 2nd stringers? LOL, you guys are amazing. Expect Sage to do no better when your line gives you nothing at the start and your RB coughs one up.

    I know I'm going to have tomatoes thrown at me for saying this... but Glenn Earl looked good today... I don't know why we also had our other strong safety on the field (Because thats what he is, CC is NOT a free safety) ...

    I believe you are correct. Now if we could only get teams to start their backups we'd be great.

    It's a little difficult to give a fair assessment of your Offenses performance, as they spent a good portion of the game against the Colts backup D and only scored significant points in 4th Qtr scrub time.

    Getting 2 sacks on Manning (technically 2, but 1 was a run stop) was a definite positive. The Colts O line are the best in the league at preventing sacks, so to get 2 is very positive.

    The Colts scored a lot of points on you, but that's what they do to everyone. You may struggle this season if you play blitz all day

    "casual fan" observances

    positives:
    - garbage time or not - glad the offense worked the entire game
    - Carr's stats - not much for the downfield, but that's what the Colt's D allows.
    - passes were spread around
    - Gado and Dayne looked good for just coming over.
    - I'm glad (psychotic kinda way) that we're starting the learning curve v. high powered teams instead of setting false hopes by winning against sub-par teams.
    - looked to keep Mario in one position
    - we have a front office and coaching staff that makes sense and have faith in.

    negatives:
    - Texans played into Colts style - get behind early, force to throw
    - DRob burned quite a bit - even one play looked like he gave up on the play by holding up his arms in a WTF mode.
    - Oline is gonna take some time.... hope Carr is still around when they get tenured.
    - fans showing their "internet muscle" against each other.


    I expect wins, but I guess I'm also a realist to know when it may not happen. Still looking for that 8-8 season this year.

    Carr looked great against the Colts 2nd string defense in garbage time. When it was still a game Carr choked.... again. What's his win/loss percentage again?

    Umm, a TD is a TD. When was the last time he put 3 on the Colts? That's progress.

    Oh, and in what twisted unvierse is 22/26 with 3 TD's not good? I dont care when they came, we never stopped trying and fought hard after one of the worst 1st quarters in franchise history.

    Positives: Dwight Freeney: 1 tckl, o sacks.

    Houston we have a Left Tackle

    Negatives: Houston, our Left Tackle is hurt
