Default Texans D leads league in QB Pressure

According to Greg Bedard at SI.

Here's the week to week breakdowns:

http://mmqb.si.com/2013/09/13/greg-b...d-notes-week2/

http://mmqb.si.com/2013/09/19/nfl-sacks-pressures/

http://mmqb.si.com/2013/09/26/justin...poe-pass-rush/

http://mmqb.si.com/2013/10/03/tamba-...vich-pressure/

J J Watt, of course, led all interior pass rushers by a healthy margin.

The good news is that Mercilus finally shows some sign that he might become a better pass rusher than Barwin.

Tied for second with Jared Allen behind Tamba Hali for the week.

Pretty cool. I thought he had a great game. Some of his pressures were scheme, but I think he's starting to learn to use his physical tools to beat his opponents too. He's learning to gain leverage & bend..... if he continues, he may be a dominate edge rusher before the season is over.

Another thing. That list is cool & all... but too many of our opponents are too high on that list. Need to tell MMQB to help us out a little bit.

I think the light went off for #59. The guy wasn't just using speed to get pressure. We really need the backfield to get some picks.

We had the same problem last year, I don't know why y'all are acting like everything's all good.

In three consecutive games, this defense has given up a 90+ yard drive. As great as the defense has been playing, this is a big, big problem. When you consider football is more of a situational game & those drives came at crucial times in the game, it's even worse.

Schaub's pick 6 was bad & the single most back-breaking play in all of football, it only tied the game. Had the defense not given up a TD,(remember I'm talking about a 90+ yard drive) held them to a field goal, we win that game by 4. Offense doesn't have to score another point.

I understand if you look at it the game as a whole, the 13 points given up by the defense is astounding. But 99 yards & a touchdown..... you can't let that happen. Just can't.

Definitely shouldn't let it happen 3 games in a row. Jake Locker. The great Jake Locker led his team on a 98 yard TD drive against us. Joe thefck Flacco, on a bad day led his team on a 96 yard TD scoring drive against us. & Russell Wilson missing 3/5ths of his OL 99 yards...... it's insane to be talking about how "good" we are.

Tennessee is 29th in offense. Baltimore is 27th.

And I agree.
Everyone points to that one play against Seattle, but if the D stops Wilson in the 4th qtr, that pick-six is just a footnote.

So the defense needs to save Schaub from himself apparently.

If you're playing that game, take away the 236 yards or total offense the Ravens had versus the Texans, and they would average 344.6 ypg, good for 18th in the league. Subtract the 248 yards the Titans gained in Houston, and they would be ranked 22nd. No, they do not possess top offenses. But they still performed below their averages when facing the Texans defense.

The defense has made every game winnable this year. How many teams are there that have not allowed a drive over 75 yards? The defense plays a lot harder than the offense if you ask me.

More fun with numbers pulled from other threads...

Quote:
The #Texans Defense is holding opponents to an NFL-best 254.3 yds/game.
Quote:
No defensive player has made as many run stops as Brian Cushing (18). 2nd is Posluszny (17), 3rd Ahmad Brooks & J.J. Watt (15)

Lowest amount of pressure faced by quarterbacks. 1st Peyton Manning (19.3%), 2nd Andy Dalton (22.8%) & 3rd Stafford (25.8%)

Of all QBs w/at least 100 dropbacks Mike Vick has faced the most pressure (46.5%). 2nd is Russell Wilson (44.6%) & 3rd Matt Schaub (44.4%).
Quote:
Never would have guessed this next one either. Arian Foster leads the AFC with 292 yards rushing.

Another #Texans stat. DeAndre Hopkins leads all rookies with 270 yards receiving on 20 receptions.

Great stat nuggest -- The Texans are the only team in the NFL with a top-five offense and defense.

When you put it in perspective, Schaub & the offense don't look so bad. Still a top 10 passing offense (9), tied for 4th in passing TDs (8).

At the end of the year, we can look at point differential & turnover battle & whatever & what not. It's not about how many points the defense allowed, it's when they allowed them & how.

Tennessee opened the game with an 80 yard TD drive. Tennessee then opened the 3rd qtr with a 99 yard TD drive.

It's not so much the points. If they had an excellent punt return that set them up in good scoring position, or if they got a turnover deep in our end, it is what it is. But to start on the 2, get driven back a yard, then on 3rd down pick up a 3rd & 11 from the one...... & turn it into a TD. Sorry, that is not good enough.

The offense scored 20 points against Seattle. Should be good enough to win. They did nothing in the second half, so it really didn't matter. They needed to score at least 3 points, couldn't do it. Didn't play well enough to win.

Schaub made a mistake, giving Tennessee, Baltimore, & Seattle 6 points. Our defense made mistake after mistake, after mistake allowing Tennessee, Baltimore, & Seattle to score on 90+ yard drives. Neither should be acceptable.

If wade cut back his blitz packages and emphasize our cb to turn their heads to play the ball we're easily a top 3 defense by the end of the season.

We need to get better at watching the plays for ourselves & "figuring out" what actually happened. Can't listen to the play for play guys.... "He didn't turn his head" is cliche & they say it before they even know what happened.

In everyone of our PI calls, our DB turned his head. Turning your head is supposed to make it look like you're playing the ball. But refs have gotten smarter. They're watching the play. If the receiver turns his head & he's not playing the ball, he's going to get called for PI. Can't push on the receiver, arm bar the receiver, or use your off-hand to pull the receiver's hands down.... that's PI (unless you make contact at the exact second the ball hits the receiver). Those were the things happening in all those PI calls that the guy on TV (or some of our fans repeated here) said our guy didn't turn his head.

That ball that was called a catch, but later over turned in the Baltimore game. Kj did not turn his head, but he didn't touch the receiver either. He put his hand between the receiver's hand, just like he's supposed to. When the ball got there, he was all over Torrey Smith, but that's ok. That's how they're coached to do it.

There was a play in that game where a DB was holding Martin's hand down, but since he looked like he was going for the ball, they didn't call it.

So the next time you hear the commentator say, "He didn't turn his head, that's going to get called every time." Watch to see if there's any contact before the ball when they show the replay. I guarantee you there will be & that's why the PI was called, whether the head is turned or not.

Another thing... the absolute best thing Wade can do to help our defense would be to teach the LBs & the safeties to recognize & anticipate routes. Watching other teams play zone coverages & watching our dolts meander around the field, it's depressing. Really, really depressing.

Watch how other LBs appear to feel the routes developing around them, widening their zones as routes leave their zones, or stretching them when the outside guys run deep routes, or anticipating the slant.....

Really, really good CBs can defend the slant when they're anticipating the slant. But most of the time, really good defenses beat the slant by putting a LB there to take it away. The QB can't throw it on that first step, because the receiver is running right at a LB... maybe a safety. Then he has to wait for the receiver to "clear" the LB & by that time, the blitz is in his face & he's already thrown the ball away or he's running around trying to get away from the blitz.
