Imagine how good the Texans would be if they got anything positive from the return game or coverage units.
I think there is more to it than that. Our run game isn't as efficient or dominating like we want, or like we've grown accustomed to. We all know it, hence the vegan comments even though Tate has also been less effective.
The passing game has taken a hit as well. Numbers may be as favorable as in the past, but you're fooling yourself if you don't believe Andre is less effective than he has been.
& Sunday night was the first time this defense dominated as a team.
But the good thing about it is that the best team doesn't always win the super bowl much less win it & if we're 6-1 & no playing our best football yet this is going to be a helluva ride.
We're already seeing the defense improve that may have been Connor's best game to date but it didn't come out of nowhere as he was showing improvement the weeks before. Wade knows what he's got now & appears to b turning it up.
Same thing s happening on the offensive side of the ball, Kubiak is adjusting to what he's got.
Come December I think we'll see the best team this city has ever known.
