In 2012 Texans run game DECLINED and the above 5 were no longer Texans. There will be plenty of excuses and rationale to explain the decline but in the end, it is what it is.
Last season we also had the right side of the line playing terrible, with newton and harris rotating, anlong with caldwell and jones along with casey not being much of a power blocker. Foster still did pretty good considering IMO
