First of all, you need to understand our offensive philosophy. We're not the type of offense that's going to take a 7-step drop and wait for receivers to get open downfield. If that's the type of offense you want, then yes, you want a new coach. Texans prefer to stretch the field horizontally, rather than vertically... then hit receivers quickly with 3 & 5 step drops.
We're actually pretty good once we get in the red zone. Last year, our TD percentage in the red zone was 54.69%. That's ranked 14th, higher than the 49ers, Seahawks, Cowboys, and Colts. This year, we're ranked 5th at 66.67%. So we "settle" for field goals alot less than you think.
