I don't believe there's anything wrong with Carr's arm. I've seen him throw several passes side-armed or mostly side-armed when doing so was actually a good thing. Also, when he gets balls tipped, you have to remember that that's partially because the D-linemen are like 3 ft. away from him, instead of 5 yds. away from him like they should be. He may need to work on his throwing habits some, but his arm is fine.

A significant portion of Carr's sidearm throws are directly related to the defensive person in his face. He very seldom has the ability to step up and throw the ball. It also has to do with the lack of throwing lanes in general.
The touchdown pass to Well's was thrown around a defensive lineman.
He also throws sidearm when on the run and pretty accurately when a receiver is open.

It's not so much that he is throwing sidearm, he did that in college, but that his accuracy and it seems like his arm strength have deminnished since the start of the year when he was coming over the top with his passes. Just compare his rating for the first 4-5 and his last 4-5. Big difference.

The question was asked by somebody in David's column in the Chronicle and I believe he said that there was nothing wrong with his shoulder and that he throws the ball different ways.

Or maybe Carr has a problem with his arm.
Being it was 100 degrees below zero this past Sun. I dont think we can judge BAD throws.I just watched the game again,and I would be more concerned about his knee.Looking at the tape again,it looked like another inch and he would have blown his knee out

I guess you don't remember the shot that laid out Carr in the Jets game. Eric Barton blew by Wand untouched on that hit. Carr completed the pass to AJ, but left the field for one play. I can remember another sack in the Lion game where Wand blocked no one & let a LB free in the backfield. Your 1st instinct was correct, it's on all of the linemen.

Angry Carr NEEDS TO GO

He needs to be traded. he waits to long to throw the ball and caint scramble.
I know the line needs help but if he would get ride of the ball in a timely manner I dont think it would be as big an issue. I went to the Idy game and I could not believe how many recv'rs were open and he did'nt throw????? Then threw short at the end of the game. This guy is bad put in banks of the tech rookie maybe the line will block for them????????????????

Hahahhahahahahahhahahaha. You are better off finding another team to track if you dont like David. He IS the Houston Texans, and will be for the next 10 or so years.

GET USED TO IT!

Your post doesn't really deserve a response, but I couldn't resist. You are either very ignorant or too young to know any better. Judging your grammar skills, it may be a combination of both.

I heard that on 610 about two weeks ago. They said if it is found out at the end of the season that he played injured and did not report it he and the texans org. face fines from the nfl.
