Tight Ends?
 
Why didn't we have our tight ends in near the end of the game? Griffen and Graham? Keenum's been getting sacked with the overload blitzes because we only have our 5 lineman blocking...

Because we take what the defense gives us...

The defense is giving us blitzes. We need more blockers.

What about moving the pocket around to buy him a little more time?

That could've worked as well. I'm just dumbfounded as to why we didn't do anything to give Case more protection. Put in a FB, TE, move the pocket....ANYTHING.

Why play an empty set when they've been blitzing us almost every play?

I was actually thinking along a similar line earlier. What is the purpose of a draw play? It's a blitz beater. You run it on a passing down when you know the defense is coming after your QB. When do the Texans run it? Only when it's 3rd and forever and the other team knows it's going to happen. What about basic HB screens? They never run those, it seems. Could have used a couple of those today. Again, it's a blitz beater play. It takes a little edge off the pass rushers.

Sometimes, I just have to wonder what's going on at Offensive Genius Central over there.
