    Like many, I am craving some Texan Football something awful....So I ask of you, What aspect or player are you most eager to see in pre-season ? I picked D.Carr...No this isn't another Carr thread...I just picked him, because to me he seems to have the biggest divide among fans, and I figure if he plays well in pre-season that should calm some people down...

    I am looking forward to us looking like a real football team on the field. We haven't really done that yet and that is what excites me the most. To see us run a play and actually execute it to the "T" will be an awesome sight. I prefer that to watching us run around like a chicken with our head cut off in total chaos! :chicken:

    I am looking forward to seeing Ryans play the most, but that is not saying much.
    It's like choosing between vanilla strawberry swirl and strawberry vanilla twist.

    On a side note:

    :challenge

    I am tossing out a Coach's challenge on the illegal shift. You cannot start out by saying you are looking forward to watching Carr and then saying this is not a Carr thread.

    You forgot the most important option: Winning. I know it's a pre-season poll but the most important thing is to win games for the team and for the fans.

    The thread isn't about Carr...He just HAPPENS to be a part of the team

    I'm looking at the o-line and how they respond to new coaching. All of our offensive hopes rest with how the line plays, because without a consistent pocket, Carr won't stand a chance to do anything. Same with the running game and opening consistent holes.

    Of course I'm interested in the whole team, too.

    How the team executes based on the evaluation of each player and unit. As in putting players in a posiiton to succeed, which has been a lost art in our brief history.

    So far every Carr thread has turned into offensive line, that turns into coaching, that turns into Davis, that turns into Johnson, that turns into draft, that turns into Mario, that turns into defensive line, that turns into wins and loses, that turns into weak linebackers.

    You throw in a little more Chad, the DBs, and another kicker we can almost cover the team in every single Carr thread. The current one is talking about the defensive line right now. ( at least until you accept the challenge and rule this one the current Carr thread )

    :)

    EDIT: check that. O line is the currently on the Carr thread ticker.

    Yes, but the Carr thread has morphed into the present and future of the o-line because of a statement Carr made. It isn't the usual "it's because the o-line sucks" talk.


    Maybe it should be broken out to a new thread so that it doesn't create new, positive habits or detract form the Carr talk.

    Everything turns into a Carr Discussion...I cant wait untill he plays just so everyone can see and all the speculation can come to an end.

    AHHHHH!!! NO. I am just kidding man. Then Carr threads would start making making baby threads! The board would turn into an episode of Trouble with Tribbles.

    I was just chatting the man up. It's the off-season.

    I know.


    Your idea of a Carr thread ticker has merit though...

    I voted for the "new coaching style"--it would be nice to be able watch the game and see the team working as a team instead of worrying about pieces and parts.

    Yeah the thing is though... you can't even say that. ( because we have said it every single year )

    I will say this though... this is by far the most miserable off season I have ever sat through ( it tops the 2002 one ). Absolutely the worst.

    Hot muggy can't sleep mosquito buzzing bad.
    Yoko Ono singing shape shifting ninja crickets from Japan bad.
    Warm flat beer bad.

    Can we have a one year moratorium on the word "execute", and any of it forms?

    One month to training camp! I didn't vote, because you can't select more than one.

    That may the problem in that the team was executing upon an unexecutable plan. Make no mistake about it success is tantamount to executing on a sound plan.

    I believe you performed an execution on my proposal.
