    You guys know me... I am not a big fan of David Carr. I was disappointed in him (again) on Sunday because I thought he could have made a few more plays. However, he was statistically better than a lot QB's in the NFL and better than what we saw last year on average...


    QB rating: 102.1 ('05 average 77.2) NFL Ranking = 5
    Completion %: 66.7 ('05 average 60%) NFL Ranking = 7
    Yards Per Attempt: 7.7 ('05 average 5.8) NFL Ranking = 7
    20+ yard completions: 3 ('05 total = 18)
    40+ yard completions: 1 ('05 total = 2)
    Passing Yards: 208 ('05 average 156)


    The thing that jumps out to me the most is that he was throwing downfield more than normal and doing it successfully. This wasn't a breakout game by any stretch, but maybe he is turning the corner...

    I think it was funny that Carr was booed on both of the scoring drives. Seems people went there just to boo him.

    People would rather see him fail than succeed. It's sad really.

    Wonger thanks for the stats. IMO Carr will get better every game just a slow process. Give him the season as the O-Line inproves so does carr. I know your not a fan but I think the 1st drive is a glimps of the future.

    I finally get the feeling that it is possible for you to have a little objectivity when it comes to Carr.
    One post doesn't make a trend though...

    Carr had been a sub-par NFL QB over his previous 30 or so games. Yesterday was the first time in a long time that he looked decent. Not good, but decent.

    Let's just hope that trend continues.

    Thanks for the stat break down Wonger. It is kinda shocking to see that has already completed 1/2 of his plays for 40+ yards that he had all of last year and it was only game 1. I am curious how many attempts were taken at the long ball last year ( I know not many at all). Do you have that stat as well? Hopefully this progression trend will continue, I'm not ready to give up on the lad yet. I just feel bad for ruining his career with our last regime if he can't be salvaged at this point because there wasn't a lot of question about his potential or athleticism coming out of college, it's mainly been after being pummeled for 4 straight years.

    He had a 134.4 quarterback rating in the first half.

    I found his performance remarkable given how terrible the run game was. In the past, if the run game was sorry, we were just doomed.

    You know about 0-1 don't you.

    Anyways. Our offense struggled today because 2nd down always became 2 and 10 or longer for a good part of the day.

    The seats are great. On most plays, I was closer to the Eagles WR's than our Cornerbacks.

    You probably saw us on TV also. We were on the Jumbotron thing like 5 times.

  15. The wonger giving props to Carr? What parallel universe am I in? Is this one of those wierd Star Trek episodes?

    Seriously, I commend him for at least giving him half a credit. :whip:

    In the first half it felt like I was watching another team. Everything just seemed to be working (Except the running game). We made some stupid mistakes, but those are very correctable.

    The Eagles adjustments at halftime were the difference in the game.


    I'm feeling very positive about this team. I think we will continue to grow each week. We have a brutal early schedule, but we could surprise some teams.

    Carr played well in the first quarter. After that he and the remiander of the offense fell into a lull save for a failed attempt in the RZ which resulted in a FG.

    I am still waiting for an adjustment to ever be made by a Texans offense. I trust there is a piece of the Kubiak/Sherman tutelage that has not been offered as of yet and that is actual film breakdown over the course of the game. You must have a baseline and yesterday's game is just that. We will get better. No turnovers is a step in the right direction.

    the secondary was a pure embarrassment yesterday. don't get me wrong; stallworth is a solid WR, westbrook is as dangerous out of the backfield as any RB in the game, but they looked like men amongst boys. it sems like d-rob has lost that fire.

    The loud boo I would hope would be for the offensive line. I know that Carr took some boos for tripping backwards out of the snap.
