Caper's blind spot, if he has one, is the run. The only true back with any possibilities is Davis. From the reports I quess we have to say what happened to the defensive line? Did Mr. Smith show up? Did Wiegert play?
Carr didn't really throw the deep ball, but then again he didn't have much time to with the play of the O-Line. He connected with AJ for a 10 yd pass that AJ turned up field for like 15 or 20 more yards. The first team offense started to look good on the only scoring drive for the Texans. They got to finish off the drive with a field goal early in the 2nd quarter. Weigert did play, and that made the terrible O-Line play even more surprising. The D-Line looked horrible too. So I wouldn't say that Mr. Smith, Mr. Walker, or Mr. Deloach showed up at all. The coaches had Peek and Babin on the outsides, and Sharper and Wong on the inside for this game. The front 7 as a whole didn't play well, and that contributed to the secondary getting torched. I think it was said best when someone compared this game to the horrible one against the Bengals. It wasn't pretty.
