That's true of every OC in the NFL. However, I think you'll find that the number of times a FB dive "works" on 2nd-11 in the 4th Q with the game on the line is very negligible ... no matter which OC is calling it.

As for the turnovers, yes, they lost the game for us, for sure. However, at that point in the game, we were down by 7 with about seven minutes left to play. The turnovers had already been committed and we still had a very legitimate chance to win that game IN SPITE OF the turnovers. That series (the Baxter series) sent the message that the Texans were resigned to losing, whether they intended that message or not.
