i know this may be a few days outdated but i was reading all the comments about kubiaks interview about carr. and i just have one ? what happens if carr takes his team to the playoffs next year will he be a hero or will he still be not good enough?
I just got back from Vegas and the line on this game was JAX -10.5 with an O/U of 38.5. I put money on the Texans, as I really don't see them losing by 11. They always play the Jags tough (even in JAX) and I wouldn't really be surprised by an outright victory by the Texans. I also like the over, but my wife was acting as a moderating force on my gambling habits
Texans - 21
Jags - 20
That's just another bridge in a long line of bridges he would have to cross. From is he even good enough to be a starting qb.......is he good enough to lead a team to a winning season.........is he good enough to get to the playoffs.........can he can he get to/win a Super Bowl.
Although he hasn't exactly done step two, I think he is on step three. I know from reading this board some people think he is still on step one.
If he can lead the team to the playoffs in the next couple of years, I'll say he's good enough. But like I said in the previous paragraph, it may not be enough for some.
Did they post a spread on moral victories? If we lose by two are we still winners? What if we lose by two after sitting on the ball to end the first half - does that make us losers? What if we lose by six but we are throwing into the end zone as time expires?
I guess moral victories may be too hard to handicap because of all the vagaries.
Maybe that's why I see a loss as a loss. Moral victories be hanged!
Losing sucks. (That is in bold, underlined and italicized.) Period. But I'll sure take the way the team lost last week vs. the St. Louis loss last year.
I have never seen a football team fold so quickly in so short a period of time. I was embarrassed for every one of those guys, and felt absolutely no hope for that team.
This year's team fought last week and played like a football team, and I was disappointed for them, but not embarrassed. I believe in the future.
I am sure someone has said something about moral victory, but I haven't ran across it. Moral victory is a sports term for denial.
If, by "we", you mean me collecting cash from Vegas bookies, then yes (besides, I keep shelling out for season tix, the least they can do is help reimburse me!)
Hey, we're not a good team. we all know that. The one team I always feel like we can pull one out against, however, is the Jags. Maybe I'm a homer, but we have beat them more often than not, so far.
QUOTE=Wolf;495266]any word on if Mathis is playing?
I would think so being Sheppard was released.
anyway injury report shows only
Kris Brown nails a 34 yarder
Yeah right, don't push it now!
Just reported out of JAX, Barnes will NOT play......awesome, lets go Dline
Yep I saw it
wait and see I guess.
I bet that made your day.
I did. However, he was struggling with the delivery of it and got the sense that he was regurgitating hearsay rather than reporting or providing editorial. Interesting nonetheless.
GO TEXANS!!!! Its the best time of the week. houston texanssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss football. Beat The Jags! Beat the JAgs! Beat the Jags!
the big one for me is Stroud being out for the Jax defence.
