Default Great quote by Keith Bullock, TENN LB.

The Houston Chronicle reports the Titans were expecting exactly what they saw from QB David Carr. He completed 17-of-23 passes for 140 yards but rarely looked downfield. "Carr has a high completion rate," LB Keith Bulluck said. "He throws 6- or 7-yard passes and completes a lot of them, but nothing to really stretch the defense. Nothing that will really hurt you." Carr entered the game leading the NFL with a 69.1 percent completion rate.

LMAO.

Go CARR!!!!!!!

Not crying over spilt milk, but Reggie Bush would have been the perfect target for Carr's special dink and dunks.

Carr should have hit AJ in the endzone, but DC rarely (if ever) leads his receivers. It's frustrating to see almost every other QB in the league do these things, because we never see them in Houston.

When he does look downfield he stares a hole in his receiver.

I agree! I understand trying to lay it up for the receiver to go get, but dang, he throws it to the top of Reliant and comes down at least 5 yards short. AJ had to basically stop his route in order to have a chance at the ball. Aggrivating to say the least!

Carr threw a long pass downfield right in AJ's hands and he dropped it.

seems like that was it no more downfield passes.

AJ had a couple steps on his man on that play with plenty of real estate to spare. You do not underthrow your man in that situation, you hit him in stride. Underthrowing would have made sense if AJ were covered and / or his man had help over the top. I would not be surprised if that was the throw Carr was trying to make.

It's been like that since Palmer was here. One shot downfield per game. That's the way we play. The rest of the game we throw a yard behind the down marker.

This is nothing new to me. His QB rating is COMPLETELY misleading b/c most of his passes are high-percentage throws.
The dude has an arm and accuracy, freaking use it!

See..... it's like you read what the previous posters posted.... but didn't.

They are saying(& they are right) AJ shouldn't have to be leaping over defenders and doing all those acrobatic things just to get his hands on a ball.... especially when he has the coverage beat.

Granted.... AJ should have caught it.. the ball was on his hands..... more because AJ is a badass... but he's dropped too many balls this season to excuse even that one.

True.... AJ drops balls.... that is unacceptable....

But the Ball should have been placed better. you can say that for every ball AJ caught(or anybody who caught a ball) yesterday.

Like everyone doesn't know that the offense is what it is...dink and dunk...that's not a great quote, that's stating the obvious.

That's what you do if you can't protect. Coach can only work with what he has.

If Carr takes a 7-step drop on a passing down, something bad is going to happen. That's reality. It'a ashame that we got hit with these OLine injuries because Spencer, Flanagan, and Weigert would make a huge difference right now and things would be looking much brighter. At least the organization won't head into the off-season thinking we don't need more depth and talent on the O-line!- If we add a good FA lineman, draft a first-day guy and get Spencer and Flanagan back, this Oline could be very good and deep next year... Wouldn't that be refreshing?

This is very painful to read. I made almost the exact same post during training camp:

Quote:
We've added a good free agent in Flanagan. Winston and Spencer could grow into starters. Wiegert and Wand play now. In 2-3 years Wand, Winston, and Spencer are our tackles + quality depth. Hodgdon or another center is groomed; Pitts and Weary start at guard. We add a qulaity back-up guard and we are set.
We had a great chance to develop the line and accumulate depth. However, we only carreid nine lineman and then overvalued swing players like Bedell (is he in any three year plan?). So now we start thin at tackle, we may not have quality starters much less depth: maybe Spencer comes back good as new, Wiegert may be done, Winston better improve fast.

Weary, Pitts, and Hodgdon are still here; I don't know what Flanagan may bring next year. We probably need a starting center and a back-up guard in addition to the tackle issues.

What a mess.

This makes no sense. Six and seven yard passes do hurt. Two of these equals a fresh set of downs. Anyone heard of the west coast offense? You folks will find any reason to complain about Carr.

You're right. I don't know why we aren't satisfied with all those touchdowns we've been generating.

As I understand it, all teams gameplan us to take away the big play and keep the safeties back because we have a weak running game.

If we had a strong running game, we'd be better in the red zone.

It's still the line people. It doesn't help that our previously not great line has been injured and depleted.

pssst.... that's they way you gameplan against every team....

Some teams say screw it, and throw deep anyway.

Not all these teams have good running games..... the jets & the bills kicked our buts(well, they won) despite not having a running game to speak of.

Other teams have injuries to offensive lineman and they don't stop throwing the ball downfield. For all you stat freaks, here's one, the Texans have the best completion percentage in the NFL. We also have the fewest yard per completion. Carr ain't gettin' it done.
