Default What the **** is a Hail Mary anyway?

The last I heard, you're supposed to throw the football when you attempt a Hail Mary, right?

And don't get give me any of that garbage that he "didn't have the time " to get it off. He DID have the time.

I wish I could slap Carr upside the head.

hail mary is a pass down the field way down the field. The only bad thing is that it may not be as accurate.

Two huge mistakes by Carr 1st he took a 15yd sack going from midfield back to our 35 in the second half . 2nd your first and foremost job on a hail Mary is get off a pass ... there is no excuse for that one , your looking for an area not a reciever

There is equally no excuse for the amount of pressure we were giving up against a prevent defense. There is plenty of blame to go around.

I totally disagree on the last play Carr had time to throw for whatever reason he did not . Once again you 1st and only job is to throw it and hope for a miracle .

Your right he should have thrown the ball on the hail mary. But if he would have I bet everybody would have been mad because he made a bad throw or threw and interception.

There was 3 seconds left in the game. It's the final play.

A Hail Mary is exactly what it is . . . a Hail Mary. That's why it's called a Hail Mary. You drop back, throw it deep into an area or somewhere in the endzone, and hope your receivers can get into position to catch it on the fly, or from a tip.

Sounds pretty simple to me.

That last drive was absolutely horrible. It's just more proof that Capers is screwing up and needs to go. You have to throw deep on every pass when you have so little time- any high school coach could tell you that.

I think that David not being able o throw A hail mary was the best move for the franchise i mean david is doing the good thing for the city he knows we want the number one pick and david is the man for us to get that. he can help it if he blows

I bet nobody would get mad at a hail mary with no time on the clock. Just a hunch.

.

Carr made the passes, not Capers. DD was the outlet on these plays and Carr made the mistake by throwing to him.

Now that I've thought about it a little more, you're right that Carr was to blame, but I think it was only partly. I want to put the blame on the coach because Carr shouldn't even be looking at DD. Also, when I said Capers is screwing up, it was more in reference to the last few minutes of a game than anything else.

The option to DD should not even be in the playbook at this time in the game.

The overall problem with a Hail Mary for the Texans is this...
It's a pass down field!!! (An area of the playbook that the offense does not use.)

A hail mary is a term derived from Catholic faith that means pray to the Virgin Mary for a miracle from the Lord. The term hail mary comes from this and is a pass as far as your QB can throw the ball and pray for a miracle.

I'd take Vilma and a 1-3 rounder for Carr for sure. I bet they don't have the cap room though.

And before all of you TU fans began the Young draft noise just stifle it now... Same for Matt Leinart.
At this point we don't need a rookie qb we need someone who can manage an offense and manage a team in the 2 minute drill.
More importantly we need a coaching staff who can TEACH the personnel we have to do just that!
