Good point. If only Matt Schaub could learn to do that instead of throwing a perfect pass to Richard Sherman!!!

I heard he was sacked three times during the throwing drills in Possum Holler.

They were talking about this on the radio today. Both Elway and Manning won ALL those games.

Do you see the difference? Is it really just stats without perspective?

Garbage time INTs versus game on the line stuff. Sometimes stats are incomplete without context.

********EDIT: researching the Manning thing, and I think the radio dudes were flat out wrong. He did throw three pick 6's in three consecutive games in 2001, but they never won three in a row.

So, I guess Schaub's got that going for him. He tied a Peyton Manning record!

btw (not directed at TB), I was not actually 'defending' Carr. I was soothing my pain with bitter humor!

Does anybody really care about the int if the Texans go down the field the next posssion and score ... nope . Matt would have been at the podium and cracking jokes Kubes would have insisted it was the way theey scripted it . That would have been a defining moment .

Agreed. Ws, that's all that matters.

I don't know about that. We've had several "defining moments" that were very similar.

The defining moment would have been to throw for a third TD after Lynch fumbled the ball. That would have been a Kobe Bryant, Black Mamba, cold blooded, dagger in the heart moment that neither Schaub or Kubiak is known for.

Now the Colts need to sign Rosencopter as a backup to Luck and the circle will be complete.

With the news that Locker would supposedly not miss extensive time (that is to be seen) or the remainder of the season, Tennessee said that they would just bring up Rusty Smith from the practice squad. Smith was on the active roster the past three years as the No. 3 quarterback, but was let go in the cutdown to 53 and brought back to the practice squad. So now..........He's baaaack!

yeah, I feel the same. I'm just having fun, because I might cry otherwise. This season was going to be our Super Bowl run in my mind. Man, I'm delusional sometimes.

Have things really gotten so bad that we are entertaining the idea of David Carr lighting up our D when in 11 years he's been unable to do so against any D?

Carr sucks hard and at any rate, we are lucky to have those years behind us.
