At the end of last season, I said, "if the Texans start next season building on what they've been doing this season, it will be the first time in Kubiak's tenure."
I don't understand it, but every year, it's been something else. Last year's offense was nothing like the year before, when we "had a running game" We lost our starting guards & we changed our running philosophy. Less Power O, less Iso, more ZBS.
This year our big play first down game is gone, don't know what happened to it, & while last year we started on fire one game, then cold as ice the next game, this year it's been ice on the regular.
Changing to Dennison? maybe.
Defensively we're playing about as well/poorly as we did last year. Not really a whole lot of difference considering we've consistently poor offensively.
Hopefully, yesterday's game is a sign of things to come. We ran all over the #2 defense, threw the ball pretty well against them as well, from the word go.
It's hard to say that was a good showing from the defense. But, the way we've played in the past, that really was an improvement (sad I know).
But if you think about it, Tennesse with their veteran corners didn't do any better. Neither did the Raiders, the #3 passing defense, or the Patriots. Doesn't make it better..... doesn't mean we're any good.
I'm not using it as an excuse or anything, but I believe we are dealing with a little adversity (& have been since the overtraining thing) & we're doing okay.
We've got to get better, no doubt about it. We've got to play better, no doubt about it.
Scoreboard is all that matters & we've got 8 more scoreboards to look at before it is all over.
