Default Game planning/preparation

Bellichek said it correctly when he said his team--coaches and players--
focus on one game at a time. His coordinators are charged with coming
up with a game plan that will best use the skills of the players to do what
needs to be done to be in a posisition to win that game. Too, if necessary,
and things aren't working-- changes are expected to be made.

Texans game planning is horrible. I think Palmer's game planning for the
Indy game was to play 'keep away,' win the time of possession game.
He did not want to get in a shoot out with Indy. His thinking, though
incorrect, was that if the Colts had the ball less, they would score less.
It is evident that very little thinking and planning went into just how the
Texans would score, which is the primary function of the OC...let the DC
worry about the other teams scoring...and, yes, the Texans won the time
of possession game by a wide margin. Do we get any thing for that? Fans
don't, maybe Palmer does...
