Palmer stated earlier this summer that he would like the Texans to have a run/pass ratio per game of 30/35. That's pretty close to that number if you ask me. I've never been Palmer's greatest advocate and I don't like to extrapolate too much from the preseason to the regular season. But, I've been pretty happy with what I've seen from the Texans as far as play calling and automatics thus far.
Those numbers look good on paper, but lets mix it up a little. How many times have you seen us go 3 and out because we ran for nothing on first and second down.
