    14-23 60.9% 228 yards 1 TD 0 INT 108.6 QB Rating

    8 carries 36 yards

    I think he has played one of his better games, he got AJ the ball often, and had enough times to throw the ball.

    Although Dunta sure had a huge game, as did Wells and AJ.... a real team effort. Faggins made a couple of big plays and almost had a second interception.

    Carr had a great game today. His Dad was looking rough with that super-mullet so this was great timing.

    I am looking forward to the offense with DD and Hollings both healthy behind this offensive line. I feel with the time he had today he wouldn't be dumping the ball off to Davis as much as he had to in the past.

    Carr had a great game. He is improving a lot. He didn't take any (coverage) sacks and didn't force bad balls. I like that he kept slinging it to AJ and that he hit the receivers in the middle of the field. It certainly helps that he had time to read the field, so major props have to go to the offensive line. One thing, though: dude really needs to improve his play fake. He had a couple good ones, but if he just gets better at it, it will really help open things up.

    He played good and finally had time in the pocket. The O-line was good today. I think Carr and AJ may finally have the on-field chemistry to start blowing up the NFL.

    Well golly! I wonder why that could be?

    The offensive line had the great game today.

    Quarterbacks get too much credit, and too much blame.

    True. Its a team game. The WRs depend on Carr to get the ball. Carr depends on that Oline for time to throw it. The boys in the trenches dominated today. Carr did a good job with the time he had.

    In addition to good protection (or maybe because of), Carr seemed more comfortable and when the protection broke down, he seemed to slide and step up more effectively. That is a big step.

    Carr once again turned in an excellent performance. I mentioned in another thread that I'm confident our defense will come around and there will be ups and downs but Dunta Robinson did a great job today! With all that said our run defense must improve.
     
  11. Fantastic how he waited for Johnson to go across the middle. We haven't seen much of that happening. Time?? what is that? This is something new for the offense.

    David Carr played great today, he is now 7th in the league in Passing Yards with 775 yards, 9th in the league in completion pct. and 10th in the league in completions, he is looking pretty good right now, a lot of passing yards, and that is a good sign, it is what I want to see...Carr to Johnson....TOUCHDOWN!! I acn just see it right now! :thumbup

    Other than the INT against Detroit and the one against Kansas City I think he's looked great all season. One of the INTs against San Diego was the tip and the other was at the end of the half and he was trying to make something happen. His percentage is up. He's throwing some TDs. His decision making looks better.

    Two in a row. Finally!!! I love these Texans, but I loved them at 4 wins and 5 wins. I believe we will get 7-9 wins this year..... We have arrived. Happy Days in H-town. :yap

    Those stats don't include todays game. He is over 1,000 yards passing for the year, on his way to 4,000!

    carr displayed on his is best games ever in his three years in the league...but it was a total team effort...johnson is turning into the real deal at wide out and wells of all guys is starting to run like he should've three years ago...the o-line looks to be working with one another like they've been together for years...overall great performance by the offense

    Plus 4 in turnovers was the difference in this game. Where have we heard that before?

    Carr had a good game. So did the OL. Much better than I thought they would.
