You couldn't be more wrong if you tried. If you don't want to hold the players accountable for not executing, then you have no business pointing any fingers at the coaches.
First off, the zone blocking scheme that is used on running plays doesn't have thing to do with pass protection. Or in the Texans case, the lack of it. Carr didn't have any more time to throw last year as he does this year. As a matter of fact, i don't recall any game of their existence where Carr has had more time to thow than the opposing quarterback. NEVER! The reason why Carr has to dump it off to Davis all the time, is because the offensive line is not giving him enough time to look downfield. If you watched last night's game, all Daunte Culpepper could do was dump it off because his line was giving him time to look downfield. Blaming the coaches because the OL isn't protecting the QB is a lame copout.
They're getting beat in the trenches, both in the DL and OL. That is why the opposing QB always has more time to throw than Carr does, even in the games that they have won. And like I said in another thread, even though they are getting whipped upfront on BOTH sides of the ball, Carr is still putting up decent numbers. And if it weren't for the turnovers, we'd still be 2-0.
But the bottom line is this. Untill both the defensive and offensive lines have a chance to develop into cohesive units, and actually be on the right side of the "time to throw" department, they are not
a good football team.
