Default O-line

The o-line is certainly having its' problems this season, but the main reason is Dominic Davis. Most teams do not have a dependable #1 back who can catch the ball out of the backfield. Fred Taylor, Edgerin James, Barber, exceptions! 75% of the teams bring out a "3rd" down back, giving the defense the tip of, "we're going to throw". But with Davis,along with the others mentioned, the Texans feel they have a option run, or pass, leaving a extra blocking TE in the game. This has been the main reason for the loss of the TE in our offense. Occassionally you will see some designed plays for Miller or Bruener, but this line has been so banged up and inconsistent, why get your Franchise QB killed.
