Default Marcus Stevens

Why is it that our free safeties don't know how to wrap up? If Marcus would have actually tackled LT we might have had one more shot. I know you are about to come at me with the "great players make plays" as an excuse for LT getting the first down, but Coleman had position and he didn't break down on him he tried to arm tackle him. piss poor effort when we needed it most. I'll bet if LT was a street light on Kirby, Coleman would have squared up and nailed him. Just venting.

Not many players can individually tackle LT when he uses his stiff arm...

Oh come on Ediddy, you want to hold Marcus Coleman responsible because the whole team, including the coaches, game plan, and all, stunk?!!! It was the most uninspired effort I have ever seen from the fledgling Texans. But they are just learning to fly, so give them another week before we all come down on 'em. I can guarantee you this game was a wakeup call for everyone on that team.

TURNOVERS, TURNOVERS, TURNOVERS that is what cost us a win. had we held onto the ball does it come down to coleman stopping lt? i dont think so. this team is still at a spot in thier existence that we need to play perfect or atleast near perfect to win on most weeks and we did not play close to that way this week. no one person is at fault for this loss. we need to improve on the fundimentals of football, wrapping up on tackles, holding on to the ball, saty away from stupid penalties etc. to say this game came down to coleman not stopping lt is ignoring the fact that had others done the above we would not have been in that position!!! and remember a win or 2 against the titans and we will forget all about losing to san diego lol

You guys are all taking the "big picture" appraoch when Ediddy was just trying to focus on one play. I agree with him, if Coleman would have wrapped him hup he had a real good chance to prevent the first down. To me it didn't even look like an arm tackle, it looked like he was trying to strip the ball instead of trying to make any kind of tackle.

Coleman was also the last man on the edge when Tiki Barber rode us for that big 70-something yard gain when we played the Giants. Tiki made him look like Jerry Lewis on that play. He is not going to be the best of tacklers as a free safety although he is a physical specimen. He plays with a finesse style. That is really has been his only knock as a player over the years since he is such a great athlete. Coleman has other strengths and most players have at least one weakness. I'm not saying that he is a bad tackler, but Coleman failing to bring down a great back in that situation isn't a shock.

The only players on the Texans defense I would give even a close to 50-50 shot in the open filed against LT are Sharper, Babin and robinson. LT against most defenders one on one equals the defenders losing like 4 out 5 times.

The Only Person That Can Tackle Lt In The Open Field Is Someone Who Gets Him From Behind And Lt Cant See Him Thats It Your Running Back Plays Great But Lt Is A Great Player How Good Is He Your Whole Focus Since The Schedules Came Out And U Knew Who You Where Playing Was Stop Lt I Read The Player Interviews So What Does He Do Go 120+ Yard And Seals The Game On That 3rd And Short When Everybody In That Stadium Knew Who Was Going To Get The Ball
