What stops? His offensive line was doing a rotation with injuries. His tight ends who were so effective earlier in the season were nicked up down the stretch. His 3-5 wide receivers had catch rates so bad that Jacoby Jones would laugh at them. His number 2 wide receiver was Kevin Walter. Earlier in the season, Matt Schaub was getting hit so much after the throw he lost part of an ear. Their defense that had been so effective earlier in the year had their own deals, and they were not getting the turnover luck they had earlier in the season. Oh, and stupid special teams.
They were dealing with schizz. There was a lot of stuff going on. No excuses because it isn't my homework the dog ate, but how you going to open up the offense given these circumstances? In the Patriots game, they didn't have enough TEs so they had to run a Olinemen in there for jumbo packages.
