Pulling the starters in the 4th quarter 2 out of the last 3 games shows me that something is lacking. Kubiak can be made at his players for not executing his sorry game plan all he wants, but this is one of the times he can honestly say "Its on me".
Now that i have calmed down a little since the almighty texans offense produced 2 whooping FGs while trying to secure Home Field advantage. My opinon still stands.
We get a lead and we play scared in games. We get a lead in the AFC and we play scared, same old Kubiak moto. Play not to lose unlike teams like the patriots and SF who instead play to win. We have far to much talent on offense to be losing the way we did in this game and against the Patriots.
Say what you want, sure Schaub had a bad game, who on offense besides AJ had a good day ? But were the players put in the right position to win the game ? I dont think so. You dont pull the starters with that much time left down by 3 scores. We have all seen teams come back with less time left.
Sorry for the rant but this team has leadership issues on offense and the guys leading the offense.
As far as defense goes, they gave up some big plays sure, but they kept AP in check and gave the O many many chances to get the team back into the game.
