Look at the first half when they had Carr throwing outs, slants, and sideline routs. What did we get. NOTHING.
Let Carr do what you got him for. Palmer needs to let him SLING IT!!!
The reason he was able to throw was the defensive alignment. Carr actually had time to throw since most of the D was in coverage. I agree they could have thrown more on 1st down but the Texans offense if putting up good numbers at least. The rash of turnovers have everybody wondering "what if". I really think again the offense looked balanced but penalties, mistakes and fumbles are KILLING US!!! It is the defense that really disappoints me. They give up WAY to many 3rd and long plays.
