Ok, I personally have doubts and I've expressed them in several posts since the Texans offense choked up the win against Green Bay but..... assuming that this is nothing but a slow start and zone blocking is going to turn the Texans into a running machine then what gives? As has been mentioned 6 months is 6 months. They've spent a great deal of time on this and fine, I can totally accept that it's not all that it's going to be after 6 months. My point here is that it's not even some of what it's intended to be. It's nothing. They aren't one bit better than they were in preseason at doing this. At this rate they'll have it completely mastered in ten years!

Zone blocking a different way of doing what these guys have been doing for a living for years. It's not a radical departure from what offensive linemen do everywhere. It's different yes. It's more complicated then last years blocking scheme obviously but it's still blocking. Why the lack of progress? You'd think that by now a light might come on somewhere wouldn't you? A little speck of progress might be seen?

Can they do it? Is this physical? Mental? Are the people teaching them this system any good teaching this system?
