Default 3rd and Goal

They run for the 3rd time...the same play! Why settle for 3? Why run the same play 3 times? Bad coaching IMO. I hope that doesn't come back and bite us later in the season. We lucked out with those Dunta picks and that fumble returned back for a TD by Sharper.

I'm so happy we won and the Texans played passionately from my point of view but that redzone situation, running the same play 3 times with Sapp and Washington in there, just wasn't a good call. Why settle for 3? With that field goal we had just got the 3 point lead. Oakland came marching right back but of course got INTd by #23. But what if they score?? Oakland would have still had a chance.

What if they had score on that 3rd and goal running the same play....okay, fine but they didn't and Oakland was still in the game at that point. Run a play action reverse and hit Billy Miller for Christ's sake...not the same play 3 times in a row to only settle for 3 when you're tied in the 3rd QTR. Just a vent...and my

If we had gotten in it wouldnt even be an issue right now but yes it was a bad call and imo it was the only bad call all day. We won the game handedly so why is this an issue? The coaching staff had one of their best games on Sunday.

I tend to agree with Reddevil63. Very rarely does a team have a perfect game called by it's coaches. That was one series and maybe it's just the afterglow of a really nice win and second half performance but I'm focusing more on the drive that ended with the AJ touchdown catch. That was what we've all been waiting to see Carr and Johnson do since they were put together. I think in the long run we'll see more of that this season than the three straight runs by Wells.

Ahhh...I stand corrected. Yes, it was the only bad call of the afternoon so it is excusable but considering the situation we were in....had we not won that game, this topic would have been up before I showed up this morning.

I think this play was addressed by Capers as an audible by Carr. Maybe he saw something that made him think another run might work. I know that at the time I said a few ****no no's at the tv. However, I would usually go with runs inside the 10 yard line. With a compressed field to throw in, it is too easy to intercept or block a pass even to a tight end. That's why we need a 260 lb power back to punch for 2-3 yds on the goal line or with 3rd and short. Wells looked good over all but I still ain't convince he has the power needed.

That's also what I heard. Carr changed the call at the line. The Boo's were loud on that third run (yeah, I was adding to them) and it was a very frustrating three plays indeed. Later in the game you note he didn't just audible off to the run but called a timeout and then popped Andre with that sweet TD. Maybe it was just pure, blind, stupid luck but I'm hoping that was a very clear example of DC learning.
