That's included the two overtime games.
Also, the premise is for the Texans defense to get back to the level of 2011, maybe even better.
With a good D, a kicka punter, and a better FG kicker, it is within reason to "presume" that the Texans will have a much better chance playing with a 10-14 lead, and less of a chance of having to play catch-up.
This didn't happen last night.
Also, eventually, the trio of backup receivers should also see some target.
Most importantly, the premise is that Kubiak stays with the balance approach so as to allow the defense the opportunity to rest and stay fresh.
There's always a chance that Kubiak feels more comfortable with Schaub, as long as he continues to demonstrate that he can handle pressure well, and work the game plan to have more passes than rushes.
But until Schaub proves to be consistent under duress, there's no reason to suggest that Kubiak would change his philosophy radically.
Obviously, if Hopkins continues to make the tough catch, he should see his share of target. Too early to call it one way or another though.
Those were some tough catches by hopkins. Those weren't good throws by schaub. I really wish gary would just open up early. I mean you can still have balance and be opened up. I wish he would roll more 11 personel,no huddle,and just create that offset. They could go big 11 with hopkins and posey as the x and z with andreas the y or small 11 with martin as the y. Just let schaub call the plas from the los and jsut roll. Get the lead ,then start pounding.
Be a student of the game, not a fan.
