Not ground breaking stuff, but its good to see Carr getting some love. I think, especially for a number one overall he has gotten almost no attention. I remember Tim Couch getting alot more.

Even now it seems Harrington gets more press than Carr. I have a feeling thats about to change.



the difference is that Tim Couch was getting negative attention.

the difference is, that Carr plays in Houston which gets no media attention. Think about it when the Rockets were winning back to back championships SI didnt even want to make a special issue about the team. If Yao played for any other team he would be a mega star by now and nobody would be questioning his toughness. Remember all the media coverage Tmac got playing in Orlando, I bet he gets half that playing in Houston. I swear for such a big city we really get the shaft as for as media attention goes. Its like the only city they think thats in texas is Dallas

I think were gonna finish 7-9. Were still inconsistent, but we will play better this year. Babin and Robinson will go through learning experiences this year. Cowboys are horrible, thats all last week proved. They looked sloppy today ( besides the quarterback play and J.Jones havin a good game). Still won, but diden't play too well. Played better than they did against us but I still see them goin 6-10 this year. I think Vinny will go down and Henson will be throwin into the fire and have his ups and downs.

But back to the Texans, seein Andre drop the easy catch makes me think if were gonna have a repeat of last season with him. Prolly not but he'll prolly always be a guy that drops easy catches (like T.O.), but still be really good. I diden't like our run blocking today, Pittsburgh is a tough run defense but our blocking sucked too so it made it even worse. Im glad to see Carr still getting a high percentage of completions, I think he will be in the 60's this year. I just hope for less INT's. I miss D.D. runnin though, Hollings can't break tackles like he does. Babin doesen't look over powerful or really good, he just looks like he has a non-stop motor, which is good. Should of had a sack today, Ben knew he was bein sack and flopped it at the last second, thats bs. But oh well, I think were improving, and now its time to start glueing together.

im just gonna throw this out there, but ive kind of got the impression that the offensive line is better suited to take on a 4-3 defense rather than a strong 3-4. not real sure what the problem today was - but it was real hard to keep watching the game after seeing all those runs.

peek is a good pass rusher, but he did mess up several times, that can be fixed. the same for babin - played good, but got caught up several times. all can be worked on...

carr - boy this guy is awesome, with our receivers - they will make him look even better.

i was a little dissapointed that ragone didnt throw deep too, he has a GREAT deep ball.

oh yeah - WHEN THE RECEIVERS HEAD IS TURNED ALL THE WAY AROUND AND THE DEFENDERS HAND IS ON THE FACEMASK - IT IS CALLED A FREAKIN FACEMASK (the personal foul one)!!!!

Well, that one is. But if you completely turn the helmet around while tackling so it faces the players rear shoulder pad - that's not. (Per the Pittsburgh preseason refs anyway.)
