Default Carr Pounded

According to the artical by Richard Justice in the Chronic, it seems Carr wasn't feeling very well physically:

"Carr hung around longer. When he did leave, he bent down to pick up a box lunch.

He needed two tries. He groaned the first time and straightened up. He reached a second time, picked the food up and walked unsteadily out of the stadium."

The early line on the Texans/Steelers game is the Steelers by 6. HAHAHA! They should revise that if they want anyone to bet on the Texans. It should be the Steelers by 12 at least.

I don't blame him for not feeling well after the game with the pounding he took. He got his bell rung a couple of times when he ran for the first, and when he tried to run for the score on 3rd down.

After one of those early hits, I don't think he ever got his snap back. He just looked lost at at times, overwhelmed at other times, and scared the rest of the time.

The one hit that drew the penalty (which actually was a legal hit, but unnecessary) rung his bell pretty good. I wouldn't be surprised if he got a mild concussion from that one (did you see him holding his head?).

If that were the case, he having a concussion, he needs to be pulled. Carr is not good enough to win a game on his own.

I don't think any one play IS good enough to win on their own. There's a couple articles in the local paper up here about famous trios (Aikman/Smith/Irving, Kelly/Thomas/Reed, etc) from the past. It just points out the fact that it takes more than one person to win a game. A QB isn't any good if the WR's can't catch the ball. A QB isn't any good if his OL can't block. A RB isn't any good if his OL can't block. It really boils down to what everyone has been saying for YEARS...y'all need an OL.

The Steelers rarely blow anyone away.....they try to get the lead and then hold on (much like the Texans have done).....that is probably why the line is only 6, along with it being the Texans home opener and an anticipated rally after a terrible game....

Anticipated rally ? Im not gonna hold my breath . I'd jump all over the Steelers -6 in this game .

I think Capers should start HIMSELF at QB just to save Carr from another beating ...... Remember the last time these two teams played ? The Texans had a grand total of 47 yards .

Steelers 45-9

yep, that's the one. He just looked out of it from that point forward. Later in the game we were hoping that they would put in Banks or Ragone to 1) give Carr a break, and 2) maybe spark something in the offense in his absence.

I want to know why we didn't do anything to improve our offensive line??????
Manning and his WRs are on que. If you play closer (not saying you don't)attention....the reason he executes so many play is that Manning is quick about his throws. All the credit shouldn't be given to Indy's O-line. Manning and Co. have their timing down to the T.

I think they left off a 6 - should be "66."

PS: That was a pretty good article.
When you select a QB with the number one overall pick, you do it with a certain amount of expectations to follow - leadership, ability to overcome diversity to name just a few intangibles that should come from any starting QB, much less the top pick.

Carr has not shown anything other than the ability to be an average QB when he does get the opportunty to make a play. It is a team game and he has let his team down from the positon that he anchors.

If he is as good as we think that he is, then we are overpaying. If he is not as good he some think that he is then we need to restrcuture or cut our losses.

That's true! I mean, he should be good enough to overcome lack of pass protection, a constantly collapsing pocket, blockers than won't read blitzes, and poor play calling.

He's in a slump and unfortunately the offensive line cannot help a slumping QB.

It will be interesting to see what Carr makes out of this season.

I'll take 47 yards again if it means a win. Winning ugly is better than not winning at all.
