The run game has gotten better and probably isn't an issue right now...it's the "OMG WE'RE IN THE RED ZONE" Conserviak playcalling that's killing any sort of momentum (all deference to Bill Barnwell) we have. Predictiak just starts clenching up, especially if the running game can't get it done in the RZ. Run, run, pass 5 yards behind the first down marker, bring out Chubs and pray.
Meh. This team is not only depressing, they're BORING
Sums it up nicely for me too.
Watching the Texans in the red zone is like watching a re-run of Titanic, you know how it's going to turn out. No happy ending.
Hopefully Keenum's mobility will improve our red zone efficiency.
IF he gets into the game.
