We are always running on 2nd and long situations. In a analytics/sabermetrics sports world, that has been figured out by most teams using analytics and yet the texans continually run on 2nd and long. Add the fact that schaub is your quarterback who cant be bothered to throw past the 3rd down marker your problem is compounded.

Having Case in should help unless or god forbid until Kubiak starts tugging the leash and making Case into the same kind of puppet Schaub was. You have to trust and allow your QB to make plays. We will see if Kubiak is capable of that IF Case gets some more playing time.
If you fellows keep pointing out these flaws in our crummy coaching, you're going to get me mad.
