I think what you saw was Gaffney not knowing what was going on since he was out of camp... Almost as if he thought the route was another 5-10 yards. That was the one time Carr had no pressure, and I remember thinking that as soon as I saw him throw it with confidence. If you see the replay, you will see Carr's reaction which is like, what is he doing?

Overall it is an OL problem, I think Capers is gone after week 5. The personnal on teh team is all messed up and I don't see great changes being made until at least 2 years from now.

DOES ANYONE THINK THE TEAM IS A PLAYOFF TEAM IN THE NEXT TWO YEARS?

Then again, maybe we are entering the Matt Leinart lottery early?

Default we had to many t o say...

The most embarassing play to me was when Jabar didn't even look back and the ball hit his arm...all he had to do is look in for one second!!!

Most embarasing coaching move was the punt with around 5 min. left and they punt....what kind of message are you sending to the players? WE SUCK and WE DON'T HAVE ANY HEART SO LETS JUST THROW IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW!!!

making a list of bad plays:

....5 false starts by the Defense???? I don't get that one! That is just poor coaching, PERIOD!!!
....Running on first down every single ..........YOU ADD THE WORDS HERE!.....time we had a first down.
----Corey, you only get about 5 chances a game please make them count the ball hit you in the hands and numbers..CATCH IT!!!


.....NO HEART!!! The Texans had no heart and it waw painfully clear watching them today!

Those are just my views on it!

Geaux Texans,

Totally agree, we had nothing to lose at that point... Sometimes the coaches need to be a little more confident and aggressive to fire the team up, which showed no emotion today (Cowher, for example).

Since running wasn't all that effective, a play action boot leg with AJ coming across the middle on top of a rolled out TE might have been good. Worse case, Carr should throw it up for an interception a few yards down the field, close to a bad punt.

Yes, but only if McNair brings in leadership that are proven winners...(ie, ice on the fingers)

In No Particular Order:

1.Phillip Buchanon burned countless times.
2.Gaffney non look pass off his shoulder.
3.Gary Walker looking the wrong way on a Mcgahee run, if you saw it, you know what i'm talking about.
4. Oline
5. Capers punting on 4th down, throwing in the towel
6. 5 Turnovers
7. Deep Pass to Bradford dropped.
8. Non existent pass rush-Losman had all day, what's new?
9. Predictable play calling
10. Stupid penalties

You are just wrong. They were down 15 points. That is probably 3 scores already (not just 2) unless they make a 2 point conversion. "I've watched football for 4 decades." Good grief, give us all a break.

Vinny, don't you call it "taking risks" when you repeatedly run it on first down? The announcers on CBS were even commenting on how predictable it was. They were constantly taking a risk of getting tackled for a loss or sacked the whole game. I for one, would just like to see some fire from these guys and some execution. The constant excuse of "we just didn't go out there and execute today" is getting really old. Why didn't you execute? Isn't that what you get payed millions a year for? I wish they would look at the game like a chess match and try to out think the oppossing team coaches.

The whole game was an embarassment. Run defence looked good at first but after being out there longer in the first quarter than most the pre season they were done. But at least we have next week :brickwall

has anyone heard or read Gaffney's reason (excuse) for not looking back at that point in his route?
