They made the rules so they wouldn't work. I have no idea why they did. Safety? If you're concerned with safety, maybe discuss the diving at people's knees first. No running start on the onside kick anymore, and players must be five apiece on each side of the kicker.
It's gonna take some time for the offense to gel with Carr. Getting Kamara back will be huge. Last night they were running pretty well before Williams got hurt and were left with Jones Jr. who they picked up off of the street and Hill. Kamara and Miller will take the pressure off of Carr.
Now Pete Carmichael is terrible which will limit the offense no matter what.
The defense is pretty good so they will be in most games. The rookie Taylor playing slot corner is a stud.
I think [Carr's apparent accuracy problems are] a protection issue. When you're facing pressure on 50%+ of your dropbacks, that messes with rhytm and timing. In fact, I would call it a "timing" issue, not an accuracy issue. There were a number of throws that Carr rushed, especially in the first half (one where MT made a great catch on a search route that Carr through wayyyy to early... the flat defender hadn't even cleared and fortunately didn't have his head around b/c the ball came out so fast).
It happened with the interception last week, the interception this week, and on most of the seemingly "inaccurate" throws. They were rushed--not because Carr was scared, but because he was being hit, sacked, and not getting a lot of clear windows. There is not a QB in the league who isn't affected by that much pressure. He could play better, and I believe he will--but I'm not worried about him nearly as much as I'm concerned about pass protection (which I also believe will get a lot better).
And I'll repeat last weeks' caveat that league-wide, regular season weeks 1-3/4 are basically preseason. Offenses suck and are working out the kinks. Carr and the starting offense had exactly 1 drive together before week 1... so nobody should be freaking out. I think the coaches expected the defense to have to carry the team early.
