I think that was an awesome move by DC...throwing the ball to the fans. Were any of our posters close to the ball?
I also noticed Carr encourage the fans after the scores...good to see him having fun and getting the fans involved.:ok:

I thought I read in the Chron that David wasn't too happy about the distance of the throw. From my view (606) it looked like a bomb! But he said something about it slipping and not going very far... :um:

He said he'd forgotten that he had bruised his throwing hand a few plays back, and the ball didn't quite do what he wanted, or something to that effect.

Hope his hand is all right. No one has really picked up on that, but we definitely don't want him to get hurt, since he is really coming along.

I am the first to admit "I am a Carr Homer"! I am excited for him. Bring it on David, the "girls" await you. "Cowgirls" that is!!

I thought that was an automatic fine by the NFL for doing that, along with a celebration penalty. Maybe it's if you only do it in someone else's stadium.

I understand Kubes wasn't too happy that he did it either.

Their is a fine by the league and the cost of the ball. Corey Bradford got flagged for celebration last year when he tried to hit the wall below the fans and it sailed into the crowd.

If they'd do something about the o-line maybe the fans wouldn't have to pin Carr's well-being on "hope". :)

Speaking of, I know you were one of Seth Wand's biggest supporters and I one of his detractors, but I have to believe he'd be a superior choice over Bidell at this point. From what I'm hearing Winston isn't ready to go and they're hoping that the week off will allow Salaam (who's been barely adequate) to heal up.

I've heard they quietly brought in a number of players to work out this week but I hadn't heard of any prominent OL among them. Anyone else have any idea?

Still am. :)

-----------------------

I don't understand the Bedell choice at all, especially suiting him up on game day when the coaches knew he wasn't ready. Winston would have at least been ready to play up to his ability. Wand is at least a tackle. I know they say they like Bedell because he can play "both tackle and guard", but I think that the "and guard" part is irrelevant when we need a starting tackle.

-----------------------------

I saw on another board they were going to bring in Dwayne "House" Carswell for a workout. I don't know how well he plays, but he was cut by the Broncos so that is a huge factor in his favor. That alone should make him the front runner.

The sad thing is that a moronic fan called in during the post game show on 610, Sunday, and complained about David throwing the ball into the stands. The guys on the radio kinda shot him down, but that guy complained about David the whole time. That was his first complaint and then I think he went on to complain that David doesn't throw the ball down the field ever and some more nonsense. I was frustrated by all the negativity so I kinda tuned him out.

It's not going to matter to those types of fans if we win the Super Bowl, they will still be a David hater. Unbelievable, but I'm afraid the line has been drawn. Why would you put that much energy into hating someone you don't even know, for what reason, cuz the poor guy (David) has been screwed over for 4 years? I know, the fan was probably jealous of David's hair and never got over it....LOL

I can see him telling him to keep it tucked until he crosses into the end zone, but after that, what difference does it make?

Texans Chick - Yes I heard that too, and I agree with Gary Kubiak. DC needs to control his emotion and keep cool. He is the leader of this team, and he needs to stay calm and mentally prepare for the next series of downs if or when he will be on the field directing our offense.

That is SO LAME! Throwing the ball into the stands is unsportsman like?!? That is totally dumb, and I don't get it. It's great fun for the fans (especially for the guy who caught it), and it doeosn't seem unsportsmanlike at all to me. It's just like catching a baseball isn't it? What, the NFL can't afford footballs or something? Also, you want to talk trash about David Carr after catching that pass in a win over the Dolphins? You should give that ball to someone else man. Some people I swear...

That was the first thing that came to my mind.

As far as celebrating, I dunno. My coach always used to hound on "winning with class" and not showboating, but then again we didn't do much winning either. I don't know if Kubiak was down on it because he felt the celebration was excessive or if he really didn't want a fan to take it in the teeth or if there was some other reason we're not really picking up on.

I have no problem with showing emotion, and it is fun watching some of the celebrations that some of these guys come up with out there. T.O., Chad Johnson, and Steve Smith have been some of my favorites. But I've also always liked the players who just casually toss the ball to the ref like it was no big thing they just owned some defense. Maybe that's what Kubiak is going for -- the attitude that hey, we scored, so what, it wasn't that hard any way. :shades:

Yup only in Texansland would someone think the .25 seconds it took Carr to throw that ball was a distration to him keeping him from preparing for the game.

reminds me of some good carr runs. i think of the time he juked the saints player out of his shoes for the TD and that 36 yarder against atlanta with the hurt shoulder. and there was another where he dove and got the ball perfectly inside the pylon. and of course the famous dive and helmet toss

If players can toss themselves into the stands after a TD, why shouldn't Carr be able to toss a football into the stands?

Seriously, I expect that OFF the record Kubes didn't really mind at all, but as a coach he had to toe the line set by the NFL rules.

If nothing else, that was one hell of a fake that let him walk it into the end zone. :redtowel:

David was throwing the ball to his family's box seats. The ball evidently slipped because he didn't throw it far enough to reach the boxes. I thought it was a nice gesture though.
