Figured I would put this here instead of starting a whole new thread. There was a nice write up by Pete Prisco breaking down some of the issues on the Texans defense
The pass rush simply is not there on those edges. Barwin and Reed are not winning one on one and that has been the case for bit now this year. As one photo in that article shows, Watt is getting double teammed and everyone else is one on one. They need to win those.
Maybe fresh legs will help with Mercilus and Braman when he gets his opportunities. Hopefully that will be the case because these guys need to take advantage of the attention Watt is generating. Plus the secondary needs the help because McCain has been getting beat like a rag doll this year.
