    ESPN primetime just aired the Texans Charger lowlites. Was parker really in on the go ahead TD, his feet looked really really close to the white. And the last Davis fumble??? Sure looked like the knee was down.

    It was clearly a fumble for Dom if you look at all the camera shots and they never really had a camera angle that could prove the WR was out of bounds.

    I was at the game. At the moment of the play, I thought parker got both feet down and the Chargers knocked the ball loose just before DD knee hit. I guess the refs saw it like I did. :(

    I had the best seat in the house on that TD (sideline view - right on the endline). He was clearly in. Excellent body control by the receiver - bang bang toes down. Those of us sitting in our area knew long before the replay review was finished that it was indeed a TD.

    Sitting there, I questioned whether his left foot ever actually touched the ground at all. It appeared to never make contact with the ground. I haven't seen any slow motion replays of it yet. I imagine the right call was made.

    Both plays were correctly called, but if you don't place yourself in the position for an official to make that sort of call, its all mute! DD has to hang on to the ball, and the secondary can't get beat like Kerry in November! We need some pressure on the QB, and defense needs to be placed in more agressive situations! :headbang:

    Texans better find a passrush before next game, and on the flip side the offensive line (who did fine run blocking) better get a better pass blocking scheme, or we're gonna be in the poop all year.

    I had my eyeballs on the feet of the Charger receiver in the endzone. It was clearly a touchdown.

    The Texans pass rush better get some bite, Drew Brees looked like Dan Fouts out there today. The third down conversions the Chargers kept clikcing off one after the other was the main reason we lost. The Texans are lucky they only lost by 7 with those 4 turnovers. Had it been against a good team, we would have been blown out.

    We just simply beat ourselves out of a win. We were controlling the ball the whole game and didn't have to punt till late in the third period. As for the two plays...Big D.Davis dropped the ball and the big board showed that pretty clear but the TD was questionable because he needed to have control of the ball when both feet were in. And in my humble view, he didn't have complete control when he was in...but it was close and maybe to close to overturn with a reply. The play that really got me was the great play D.Robinson made was outstanding Defense ...the arm contact rule was put in to stop the hand checking and hard hits after the 5 yard bump(Thanks to the Pats and the Pats putting it to both Rams a couple of years ago and then again this past year against Indy) but it wasn't that at all. He made a great play to knock the ball down and that horrid call set up a score for the bolts.

    I have to give it up to the team for their fight because the answered back most of the time just not the final time....when we do that our team will be something special.

    Geaux Texans,

    A photo by the Chronicle's Andrew Innerartiy in today's Sports shows both feet clearly down. I don't think control was as much of an issue as feet on this particular play. It was a great play by Parker.

    What was wrong with the pass blocking. They really gave up only one sack. One time, Carr was outside the tackle and he has to throw the ball away, and for the INT, it was a tipped ball, Carr wasn't touched. It was just a freak play.

    The Lions have one of the best pass-blocking O-lines in the league. Harrington is rarely ever sacked. If we get a sack next week, it will be hard earned. The downside (good side for us) is that the O-line is not nearly as good at run blocking. We should try to blitz a lot more in this game or Harrington will pick us apart.

    Why didn't we blitz a lot in this game?

    I think because we had to honor the run with LT back there.

    Detroit doesn't have nearly the same level of rushing attack, so I expect us to blitz more this week.

    Agree about LT, but when it is 3rd and long and we are rushing just 3, mix it up; take the risk. It wasn't like they still weren't completing the passes with 8 in coverage.

    I agree. If we are going to be in the dime package, we need to try some corner blitzes. We give QB's way too much time in those long situations. I never have been a fan of the Prevent Defense.

    H*ll yeah....no pressure on the QB. I was very disappointed by that. We aren't going to get far if we don't take care of that! The fumbles were no excuse! Those T.D.s scored left no room for excuses either. I am disappointed but I'm still optimisitc for next week. Can you imagine what a powerful offense will do to us if the defense plays that way next week??? eek:

    I know it wasn't the defense that costed us the game but still....they could have played better. This was an inexperienced corp of guys they went up against. The offense played super but those turnovers are unacceptable!! David Carr is already 0 TDs, 2 INTs. :thumbdown
