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.
In the Patriots game they had FB clutts sitting on the bench, and kept Casey at FB with OD as the only TE. Common sense says take Clutts and put him in the game, move casey to TE. But NO Clutts didnt play in the game until the game was lost and our starters were pulled. That is the kind of BS i'm talking about.
Why sign Clutts if you dont use him, especially in a situation like that.
