Will Texans open up the offense?
Q: Carlton, do you foresee Chris Palmer opening up the offense this season?
John in Seagoville
A: John, I believe he will. Sunday’s game was a good example. The Texans spread the ball very well and moved up and down the field at will against the Chargers. They only punted twice. Other than hitting a few big plays in the passing game - and obviously the four turnovers - I thought the Texans had the right approach offensively. Believe me, John, no one wants to get the ball down the field more than Chris Palmer.
As for no killer instint in the 4th Quarter. I saw the Texans Offense bounce back from 3 turnovers and drive the ball to the end zone to score the tieing run. But a FUMBLE killed the drive. Now you see why fumbles are SO critical. Everybody forgets all the good that happened before a fumble on a drive and the fans begin to feel as If they are "playing not to lose" and dont have a "winning attitude". Personally I think its all a bunch of bunk.
