Chris Palmer

The rap on this guy in Houston was that his system was too complex and David Carr got killed waiting for plays to develop. Now, I don't think that was fair because Carr is extremely slow on his reads. If he is coming, I have to believe we are definately getting Lienhart due to his great skills at reading defenses.

RE: Chris Palmer

i don't agree that carr is slow on his reads. i had andre johnson on my fantasy team so i watched all the texans games. it was rare for carr to get more than 2 seconds in the pocket. if he did get more than 2 seconds it was usually because he was rolling out of the pocket.

i too think leinart would be a good fit for a palmer style offense

RE: Chris Palmer

Yeah, I don't think it didn't work because Carr had to take a lot of time to make his reads; I think it's because Houston had the worst OLine in NFL history and he didn't exaclty have a lot of time to sit back and pick apart the defenses.

RE: Chris Palmer

Remember, Palmer got fired after the first 2 games here and Joe Pendry changed the system to quicker plays and short hitch patterns.

What's your point? The OLine was the worst in history, it was their fault, not Palmer's. Palmer's offense didn't work there. Give him LeCharles, a maturing Jamaal Brown, and some other solid OLinemen and I'm sure he'll be able to work some things out. Besides, he won't even be calling the plays, Payton will.
