I would have to agree with that right about now. This team has NO pass rush at all, AGAIN, and one of our starting CBs is a first year rookie. On top of that, Carr is not what I thought he'd be by now (not yet, anyway), although he did alright, and DD can't hold on to the football.
My take on this is that the Chargers were a little better than I thought, but the Texans were VERY dissappointing.
I hope that DD fumbling the ball is just one bad game, because that just KILLS our chances. As far as the defense not getting to the QB, I don't know if it's under-agressive play calling or lack of ability. I just know it has to change. Either it changes, or we "surprise" the league by NOT improving on our record this year. We'll be the surprise loser.
As far as Carr's interceptions go, they weren't that unacceptable. I think he should've known the touchdown attempt, as I will call it, would be intercepted and not thrown it. I also think he saw the DL in his way and tried to throw the freakin' ball right through his arms on that tipped pass that went straight up in the air. He's just not all that great yet. He played well, overall--just not great. When you pass, you take a chance on being picked, but an RB with the ball in his arms is supposed to be BALL CONTROL.
Bye the way, I don't think I've ever seen LT before. I knew he was good, because the hype is everywhere, but he was really great. I kept thinking that Barry Sanders couldn't be counted on to get at least 4 yds. as much as this guy can, and frankly San D. scored twice the points I thought they would, even though LT had fewer yds. than I thought he would (I thought he'd break long ones, but that's not necessary when you get positive yardage every time you carry it). I still think we're better on paper.
