Its the worst of both worlds -- no shot at 6 and risking a turnover
This is simply not true.
I had broken down all of Schaub's throws in the redzone in another thread.
The Texans did go for the endzone plenty enough as a percentage of number of pass plays. It's just that we called almost twice as many running plays and we weren't quite as good in that department (until we get to the 3 yard line).
I wished Kubiak had called more passing plays between the 20 and 4 yard line.
