Re: LZ: The offense is very much broken and Kubiak canít rely on Ďthe systemí he has
Beerlover, that's pretty much my take. When you look at texans offense, who can really beat you? Andre Johnson and to a degree foster,that's it. This year, they can't just run the ball down teams throat. So if teams stop arian and roll to andre, the offense is done. Teams aren't even playing 8 in the box vs the run game, they're just key run blitzing. So now its on schaub shoulders minus playaction opening lanes and we've seen the struggle. He won't really throw guy open or extend plays. Teams are daring him to throw in the muddled middle from the pocket minus playaction and he really can't do it. This isn't anything new. Go watch raiders and ravens games last year. In fact, go watch games vs jets when revis took andre out of games. Hell, watch the 1st game of the season vs miami. I dunno why people are so surprised,but here is what I think kubes should do.
Get back to wco principles. What's does that mean? Skinny post pass plays on early downs. Using the pass to setup the run. More 3 step drops to get tha ball out of matts hands. The no huddle out of base and use casey everywhere. What gary must do is use tempo to create matchups.
Be a student of the game, not a fan.
