Seriously do not understand how anyone thinks Hopkins is going to be targeted less.
Take away the 24 attempts in the 2 OT's and what do you get?
How many attempts did the Texans have in 2011 when the D play well?
The Texans did not pass less without Schaub. Basically, they averaged just slightly over 29 attempts per game with or without Schaub.
The Texans were ahead by 2 scores more often in the second half in 2011 than in 2012; and they were in the deep hole only a couple of times in 2011.
You know Kubiak always prefer to run the ball when the Texans have a lead, especially with a good defense on the field.
