Re: Texans Lead NFL.......in RUNS on 3rd And Long
What it really boils down to is that we expected a drop off from Winston to Newton, and then Newton got injured.
We expected a drop off from Brisiel to Caldwell and then Caldwell got injured.
When you have 3 guys playing one position (RG) in the same season, two of the survivors are rookies who can't beat out a previously back-up (yet).
You have a Wade Smith who played more injured than at any time in his career.
You have Myers and Brown both having not as good a year as last.
You pretty much got whipped across the board, how do you expect a lot of good out of third and long (or any situation really) is just daydreaming.
That is the truth, besides the fact that Schaub didn't play well and that the D sucked and the ST sucked.
