    JOHNSON THROWING CARR UNDER BUS

    Texans Pro Bowl receiver Andre Johnson is embracing new quarterback Matt Schaub. And, in so doing, Johnson is taking a jab or two at former Texans quarterback David Carr.

    Stephanie Stradley of AOL's FanHouse points out some Johnson comments from earlier in the month regarding the differences between Schaub and Carr.

    "When you look at, the differences that I see is that with David [Carr] you had to wait on the ball a little bit more," Johnson said. "With Matt, he's pretty decisive with what he's doing. He's going to get back in his drop and let the ball go. When you're in your rout[e], you don't have to wait on the ball or anything like that."

    Though Johnson's words don't quite fall into the "we would have been undefeated with Brett Favre" category, the fact that they initially appeared on the team's official web site suggests that the franchise is happy to aid and abet any knocks on the guy whom the franchise selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2002 draft.

    I dont know if this is really qualifies as johnson throwing carr under the bus, although im glad when AJ makes a statement like this its considered major cause he hardly ever draws too much attention to himself.


    barely even a shot, if that in my book. He deserves to be able to vent a lot more after putting up with the trainwreck we called our offense the last couple years.

    Uh, thanks, I think. It's always interesting to me that the only stories of mine that get attention from other football blogs are the one that are somewhat sensationalized. Though, I also think it is funny that in this one newspaper town, the first quote in the link wasn't news and the second quote was a throwaway in an article. To me that might have been worth a big WTF? kinda article.

    The original link shows that I'm pretty sure that AJ's bus throwing wasn't intentional, nor meant to suggest that Carr is the blame for all that ills the Texans:

    Could you imagine had TO said the same thing? Different personality so people take it differently.

    Ya, I kind of thought the same thing, but I couldn't resist posting it. They definately put a sensationalistic spin on it that wasn't neccessarily indicated from the content of your article.

    Watch out! Anything said - even objective criticism - can and will be used against you in a court of public opinion.

    So be very careful and choose your words wisely, my friend. :worm:






    And, of course, the obligatory disclaimer: :sarcasm: for the sarcasm impaired

    That is throwing David under the bus...

    A.J isn't the type of player to really say negative things about guys, so when he comes out and says something negative, IMO it's definitely news worthy. He's not the kind of guy that's going to say something like this and let fans run with it...

    If he felt like the offense was the reason he was getting the ball late, would he really be stupid enough just to single out David ?

    Any way you look at it, Andre is saying that he thinks Schaub has done certain things better than David...Good news, although being better than David shouldn't be too hard...

    It has been 95 days since Carr has been gone and there is something comforting about that.
