That didn't happen and so the Texans had to open up their game plan.
How many times were Hopkins targeted in the first half and how many yards did he get?
If it were the Texans that led 21-7 at half time, how many times do you realistically think that Schaub would put the ball up in the second half?
The concept is that Hopkins is talented enough to demand more enough of the offense than Walter did in last couple of seasons. Again even when kevin was a better version of himselk he was 55 to 60 catch guy. The Texans offense was never desgned for the 2nd wr to be a 40 catch blocker. Many times the obvious answer is the answer.
