Default Re: What happened the offence since 2010?

Actually, they never have to go to Foxboro, as the game would have been played at Releiant.

Yes, the Texans need more speed at WR. Yes, the right side of the OL needs to improve. But that could change tomorrow, and the Texans won't be a championship caliber team with the late 2012/2012 Matt Schaub at QB.
i dont think it is just schaub and the lisfranc though. it may have affected him a little (not as much as is implied around here though) but how has that changed the passing game so much? he looks about the same as in 2010 in everything he does until the ball leaves his hand. we're only guessing that its affecting him based on the results of the whole passing game. he still has more or less the same arm and can still sling it even if his accuracy and consistency arent quite as good. schaub was never a guy that bought time anyway so his reads etc shouldnt be affected much even if the foot is bothering him some

in 2010, it seemed we'd skin teams so many ways with aj, od, walter, arian/slaton, dreessen, jacoby. maybe its nostalgia but it just seems to have gotten alot more predictable and easy to stop us on offence now

and dont get me started on RZ throws, we used to be decent at passing into the EZ and getting tds (we were still below average overall pre 2010 due to the poor run game back then)
