DD has three defenders around him as Carr is scrambling to the right. Swinton and the corner of the endzone only had one. I'm sure Carr was thinking run it in or get Woodson to bite and hit Swinton. Good football instincts if you ask me. Now as Carr scrambles further right the defenders follow him and DD opens up, but that is only because Carr scrambles. To hit DD Carr would have had to look and throw across his body.

No, DD is behind 3 defenders who all have their backs to him (as he is waiving his arms around). I'm done on this one because I'm just making a simple comment with a simple example of how he doesn't look to second options, but Carr should go without criticism here (unlike the line or the coaches or Palmer - I forgot about that rule). Go blow my simple comment out of proportion as much as you guys want. I can't take this kind of "football talk" any more.

I'm sure most of us remember the TD pass AJ caught last year when he flipped over the defender as he brought it in. I know on that play one of the other receivers, I can't remember who, was standing all alone. It was "funny" to watch on replay, especially since it was one of the plays that raised AJ into the national consciousness and helped with his Pro Bowl bid. Good thing Dre made the play.

It's a complicated game; everybody messes up. Some just aren't allowed to be called on it.

I'm really just answering a question about my thoughts on Carr. I said we haven't seen enough, but I gave an example of him not looking at an open receiver to finish off what I would like to see improved in Carr's game this season. Good Old fashioned objective football talk - "hey Vinny, what do you think"....I gave an answer and an example. It's not something that most of the posters here put up with. We only like hysteria and finger pointing.

Curse you Vinny and your wanting to share your thoughts on the performance of a player in a preseason game. This is no place for that.

Why can't a person just state an opinion with out getting ripped? I think it is ok to disagree with an opinion, but seems like some want to knock a person down, kick him 2-3 times before moving on. Wouldn't it be nice , if we had a back who could punch it in from with in the 5 yard line with 2 or three carries?

Why is everyone getting in a fuss over a play that still resulted in a touchdown. Whether he passed to DD or Swinton, it's still six.

Because (a) there are a lot of bored football fanatics around here, (b) this is a message board and (c) looking at what kind of analysis Carr went through this time may be a prediction of what he will go through next time. But in the end, whoo hooo TD.

Can't think of many times Carr has had a chance to set up in a real pocket and check off his receivers. He seems to always be running for his life. When Carr runs to the sidelines half his options go away. I gotta tell ya, If most any of us had been pummeled by 300 pound NFL lineman for 3 yrs. like Carr we would look for 1 guy and pray too.
