Call the play on third down, whether it fails or not, get to the LOS ready to call another play. If you don't like what you see, call a timeout, change the play.
Don't call a timeout, talk about it, then come out & throw a screen to the RB split wide on 4th & 2.
I would really like to see the Texans speed things up and not worry so much about TOP. They seem to play quite a bit better when they sugar huddle and really start to press a tiring D that can't substitute easily.
I do agree that getting back up to the LOS and going on 4th would be much better than letting the bad guys think about it.
