Re: Why the Texans were unable to go deep on Jax
I don't think he necessarily held back. We tried the bootleg a few times but they were doubliing Andre.
The thing that makes our offense dangerous is that we spread the field so well that any team is going to have trouble locking us down. A team can shut down one piece but we will always have something else to take its place. I don't think shutting down the big play is necessarily the right strategy in every case. Dinking and dunking is very high percentage vs the big play and it's gotta be demoralizing / exhausting for teams to get beat repeatedly over the entire game.
