View Full Version : Why? - OL rotation and Keo

Why is the right side of the offensive line still splitting time? I dont understand how the line will build continuity when they are coming in and out of the game. Brooks had a stupid ass holding penalty inside the 10 that killed what should have been an easy TD. I really hope they don't employ this philosophy next week, and I would be thrilled if somebody would ask Gary this directly at the presser today or tomorrow.

Why was/is/will Shiloh Keo be involved in the secondary rotation allowing him to kill us in coverage? I heard Mayock insinuate something that Keo was getting significant playing time due to some kind of disciplinary action on Demps? Can anyone verify this? You would think that Gary would be a little more creative with his discipline come playoff time instead of throwing a guy out there who could potentially cost this team a victory.

Did you see those 2 long TD passes to TY Hilton by Luck? Those were both all over Demps. I was hoping Pleasant would be getting some PT personally.

1) Because it takes 2 Guards & 2 Tackles from the current roster to replace Brisiel & Winston. (Mostly Winston.)

2) Demps is in Wade's doghouse.

These coaches need to stop building doghouses.

Demps gave up some huge plays. Keo, outside of that one PI call, seemed to do a good job in coverage against the Bengals. I was just fine with Houston not giving up 70 yard bombs yesterday.

Why do people start threads with non descriptive titles?

why do people need descriptive thread titles? Too hard to run your cursor over the title and get the gist of what OP had in mind?

i can understand demps getting burnt, but for the most part this year he's been solid, and i would guess he's just overall a better player than shiloh keo.

gotta dance with who brung ya, no?

If the person "who brung ya" is giving up huge plays and your team is in a losing streak? No.

correct, i agree. luckily for us, fans the team won yesterday. my concern stems from the passing attack we will be seeing out there next week, and brady WILL find where Keo is on the field and expose him. I'd rather have a superior athlete out there, I feel he would give us a better chance.

I think that's a valid question. I mean unless there's a fatigue issue with the starter, why sub him because if he's the starter that means he's atleast as good as anybody else on the roster at his position.
And on another potential "doghouse" subject, anybody know who that was who got us the offside penalty on the KO ?

Just be polite and not so freaking lazy so people can see what the thread is about.

the oline being rotated is giving away what plays we are running.

Kubiak favors certain linemen for either running or passing plays and its showing defenses what play is coming hence the predictability concern the offense is showing.

If i can see it,

trust me, the greatest coach of all time is seeing it.

We wouldn't have been playing this weekend if Demps was doing his job. Well, our chances would have been better anyway.

You do know they are rotated by series right? The guy who starts the series plays all the way through. They don't change them out between downs...... say if we want to run to the right we'll put Brooks in. That's not the way it goes.

If Brooks & Harris is playing, Brooks & Harris will play until the offense scores or fails to convert a third down.

I'm not much of a Keo fan. Didn't we bring back Troy Nolan recently? I'd like to see him out there before Keo. Unless, he was released again.

He was released a few weeks ago.

Jules is running around posting out his posterior as if he is super coach.

It's real popular when people aren't happy to start claiming they know every play and know every problem.

That's the point of a title; has the gist of the thread.
Ever heard of mobile browsing? How about Tapatalk? Neither have a cursor.

Agreed....what happened to Caldwell? Does he suck so bad now he can't touch the field?


Why hasn't routt gotten any playing time?

I was under the impression that Brooks was getting rotated in more due to the fact that Jones got manhandled by Vince Wilfork and since we already have an undersized center and now a center playing RG, that Brooks is getting prepped for a repeat New England game.

I used to post threads that were not totally identifiable. Cak straightened me out. I try not to anymore. It also has a lot to do with trying to run a SEARCH on a specific subject. Just literary and time-saving courtesy to the MB members.

Hard to believe there are redundant threads when there are so few new threads being started these days.........

Jones insertion into the line-up was to cover for Caldwell, initially injury related. Then Texans tried to develop some continuity on the right side & it was working until Newton got hurt, missed time & the whole thing unraveled. All the while Brooks was steadily showing improvement in practice. The only way for Brandon to fully develop was to get him reps too (kiss Caldwell goodbye). Timing is certainly less than ideal but sooner or later RG position looks to be Brooks if he can run the system. Brown-Smith-Myers-Brooks-Newton could be your Houston Texan starting OL come next weekend in New England.

As for Keo it's good to see him competing for reps but I think he is just another stop gap safety & special team player. Texans cannot afford any more mental lapses if they are to be competitive against a polished Patriot team.

I'm hoping for positive OL performance & crossing my fingers about the secondary :htown2atx:

Or, after watching today's game, even against an unpolished Flacco-headed team.

I was wondering why I kept seeing Keo on the field for the D. Stresses me out when I see that 31 if it's not kick coverage.

Hey, I have an idea. Why don't you join an online forum and immediately start telling them how to change the standards they've been happy with for years.

Wrong attitude. Bad Nazi reference attempt. Welcome to the MB. Maybe you will try to be a participant rather than a part.
