Re: Why is it on Schaub and not the D?
Its on the team not any specific unit or person.
Although, the offense isn't helping the D by producing drives that give rest and help some with field position.
I'm watching the 1st Colts game again & a sequence in the 2nd quarter is indicitive of how the struggles of the offense are hurting the D.
The Texans are shutting the Colts down into the 2nd when a penalty on a punt return forces us to start our drive inside the 10. We go 3 & out and a horrible punt gives the Colts the ball back at the 35. We force a fumble at the goalline and get the ball back. Again, a 3 & out for us and the Colts once again get good field position. This time they end up with a FG.
If the offense could have moved the ball at all it could have prevented the scoring play by Indy.
This brings up 2 more units that are more to blame in my mind: special teams and coaching.
Our field position continues to be IMO the worst in the league. If we'd kneel in the endzone everytime we'd be better off.
Time to make the donuts.
