Default third down hurt

When it came to the front page vote, many voted for turnovers. Of course, that may hurt you many times, but I feel it was getting off the field on third down. The Texans for a while overcame some of the blunders and took back the lead. The Texans dominated the first half, and was wearing down the Bolts, but when the second half came, and our defense failed to get off the field, that was our demise. It was stated before, the secondary can only cover for so long, before receivers get open. The Bolts don't have any? I don't care if its' Oprah, Kathy Bates, and Rosanne, eventually they would get open with the time Drew Brees had to throw! Blitz, mix it up, do something, but you cannot fall back into a zone or prevent and allow an NFL QB to pick you apart. Brees may not be wanted or respected by the team he is with, but he is an NFL QB, and he should be respected as such! The Texans D got worn down in the second half to me, and that was our failure. Next week...........Blitz!!!
