Titans-Texans Note

leave a comment »

Two things from today’s NFL game between the former and current football teams of Houston, Texas. First, from the former team, Jarrett Payton, son of Hall of Fame running back Walter Payton, elevated to the active roster due to the suspension of Travis Henry, scored his first NFL touchdown today, which was a nice moment. Second, I just want to say I feel sorry for David Carr. In 2002, he set the NFL record for most times sacked, with 76. This year, his fourth, through four games, he’s been sacked 27 times, seven of them today. That’s a pace for being sacked ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT TIMES. Until the Texans can mange to keep him, or anybody else, upright in the pocket, they won’t stand a chance. It’s almost at the point where you wish for an injury to Carr, something season-ending but not too painful or career-threatening, just to save him.
