Default Turnovers killed us BUT we never challenged SD secondary

We threw more to RB then trying to go deep, so their secondary knowing we weren't going to challenge them could stay at LOS and blitz more...We cost ourselves the game with short passing game and giving away the ball FOUR times...Texans BEAT themselves

You need your QB to make good decisions and RB to hold on to the ball. Play calling had ZERO to do with this loss.

OMG If someone is already trying to bag Palmer for this one its got to be personal. We couldnt even beat a little league team with 4 turnovers. There were concerns going into the season with fumbles, now it is a full blown problem. Davis can run for 300yrs a game and not make up for 2 fumbles. Trouble is Hollings may be even worse in this department. Carr didn't air it out enough and when he did it seemed as if he were throwing to the defense not his receivers. I hate to say it but Carr looked average out there.

Stop with this turnover BUT stuff. If Carr hadn't hadn't gotten picked twice, if DD hadn't have coughed it up twice, it'd be a different story, and you'd be praising everybody.

The turnovers killed us. It's that simple.

And what does DD coughing it up have to do with reading defenses?

The interceptions were both directly related to the SD pass rush. But in general the Offense moved the ball well in the first 3 quarters. Don't know
'bout the last couple drives - maybe Carr was losing his cool, maybe SD is
better in the clutch than people give them credit for - hope so. Course DD fumbling when he did at the end of the game is a killer.
But the big dissapointment is, obviously, the D. Rookie Babin was impressive
but one really has to question the wisdom of starting Robinson in the opener. That's easy to say now, but someone really overrated his readiness.
It's a bummer - I thought we might overcome the turnovers, but we're just not good enought to do that. Back to the drawing board for the Detroit.

well i'll say this without the turnovers there is no guarantee you would score... you would have had to make a long field goal b4 half. one fumble may have tied the game when it was in the red zone... but what about hte pick we should have had to negate your field goal either way you would have lost by 3. the other turnovers werent even in scoring range. and marty ball is all about holding on to the football pounding the run and taking the football away. we stuck to our game and it worked out just give credit to a team that beat you. good game

A week or so ago, I said we would have to out score the other team, because we had a questionable defense this year. I would say that that is the case. We turned the ball over in the 1st year, but we would still stop the other teams. I believe we had one sack and I don't believe Brees was really pressured. There's no question turning the ball over 4 times is bad, but part of that is pressure from a lack of defense in that you press when you really shouldn't. You feel you have to score on every possession, because your defense can't stop the other team. Essentially every time we scored they countered with a score. The last fumble by DD was in a pressure situation. I'm not condoning it, but he's trying to get the extra yards for a 1st down and perhaps breaking it for a TD. We were at the 4 minute mark and down by 7. We had to score or else and the game was on the line. It was that simple. Even if we score SD would have had another opportunity with the ball. When you don't test the secondary, you allow the other team to gang up on you. There's no question that SD was ball hunting in that situation. Too bad, but I really don't see anything different from last year as far as the play calling is concerned. AJ and DD are average receivers and running backs. Yes, they get their yards and receptions, but they aren't really a threat. Some of you will be all over me for these statements, but I think I'm being realistic. I wish it were different. Hollings is a non factor as are our other receivers. We were suppose to have so many receiving threats, but they dissapear at game time. I don't know whether that is play calling, bad route running, or lack of vision by the QB or all of the above. I think Capers better revisit his defensive and offensive schemes otherwise it will be a very long year. I said earlier in the year we had not recovered defensively from last year's injuries and I stand by that. I thought we were put back to square one and I continue to hold that opinion. The injuries are not the fault of management, but I believe they have placed too much hope and optomisum in injured retuning players.

Offensive playcalling had a very small part in the loss. I cant believe they didnt test them downfield. However, when its 3rd and long and we rush a nose tackle and the two OLB's even a QB like Drew Brees is going to pick apart a secondary. Its the same problem we had last year.

carr has really not grown in reading D's. These turnovers were completely unacceptable. SD has a bad D.

Come on now, did you guys watch the game or just look at the stats, I do say wwe should have thrown deep more but thats what Im not blaming the loss on. We had turnovers, but the only unexeptable ones were the fumbles.


Now with the picks you have to go back and watch the plays over, because Im blame those on the o-line. On the first pick you can see that AJ was open and as Carr cocked his arm to throw, a defensive lineman swatted at the ball causing Carr to pump, and by the time he released the ball the DB had recoverd. Bad play, but I understand what happened. And on the last one you have to say that Carr did absolutely nothing wrong, he stood in the pocket and tryed to deliver a pass, it wasnt his fault that the line let a streaking LB get into lis line of fire. He threw the ball off blitzing LBs helmet.

I think Carr played well, just look at the completion percentage and yardage. he didnt throw the deep ball, but he threw good passes to open receivers and really didnt force anything.

Carr was 19/25 for 76% completions with 229 yards . I think thats pretty good,and without the 2 o-line lapses, he would have had a great game.

I've thought about this too. I'm beginning to wonder if the Texans coaching staff is afraid to let Carr throw the ball deep. Do they not believe he is capable of throwing an accurate deep pass?

With how conservative the Texans are and not testing the opposing secondary you'd think Texans had mediocre receivers....
