Default Offensivive Woes.

Thats 2 games now that we are held to 14 points or less. There seems to be a lack of fire in the game planning and very vanilla offense. Has anyone noticed a lack of motioning in this offense?

I agree there's been a lack of apparent ingenuity on offense; but on the other hand I don't blame them, why make things more complicated when the offense can't even execute vanilla.

I think the biggest problem is executions, Carr has been timid...maybe he has been hit to many times. He has been losing the ball as soon as he was touched. The INTs that he threw, he was pulling his arm back really quick to protect himself before he was hit and he was really throwing side armed.He had no follow through on his throws. I sense that he has fear of being hit. If that's the case then we are in big trouble. That's exactly what happened to David Klingler in Cincinnati.

Until the Texans can run the ball, stuff like this can continue. Hopefully these games will make the OC commit to getting better at the run and then work in play action.

ok ok i'm confused but i think us not beign able to run the ball has a lot to do with the O line the dont create holes, sounds like yall are blaming our RBs ! We just need to sign some good O-line Veteran free agents in the off-season draft some high draft pick o-line man so they can have time to learn, get a lil play time here and there !

did anyone else notice when we played Denver just how far back in the pocket Jake dropped? I mean it must of been a good 15 yards & he got back there quick, this seemed to create a huge pocket for his offensive lineman plus opened up alot of underneath routes. I'm wondering why Carr and the Texans don't try this? Carr has similar speed and even a better arm I think it would help because right now he can't stand in the "traditional 7 step pocket". This would also help the running game get started opening up inside lanes, creating spacing and force the linebackers to respect the run.

We have no running game. If you pass all day long, that puts extra pressure on a line built to run block. That is a key reason that Carr has been sacked so much. I think we need to recommit to the run and utilize the play action pass. That is how the team was built.

The roar of home game crowds does energize and pick-up teams, especially
the mediorce and inferior teams. Its a crutch, a drug they feed on for their
strength and security. The really good teams don't need it. They have the skill, confidence, and composure to compete at a high level and even excel in the firestorm of a hostile playing field.

I dasagree that it is all Carr's or the O-lines fault. What went wrong with the run blocking that was freeing DD for those big runs? How about the beautiful passing attack that was beginning to show itself? No it is no more the execution than it is the same damed old game planning, or lack or same, game after game. Other teams are adjusting to our moves. We Are Not adjusting in turn, to theirs. I blame the coaches for an inept game planning effort.

I'd have to say it was everyones fault NoBull. I mean, even Kris Brown was in on the act by missing a FG. I looked at the 1st few possession and they were just rushing 4 guys and laying back the other 7 and we still had no time to go through our progressions. That is just plain sad. All they had to do was rush 4! We had to keep in 6 or 7 and we still got pressured. No excuse for that.

What big runs?--his long before this game was 10 yds. If you mean last year what has changed is two new OL, one in a new position and a new scheme for the whole line. I expect they will improve with time, but so far with the exception of the Oakland game (and that still wasn't that good) the rush blocking has sucked.

Well Carr definitely didn't look as accurate these last two games and the players have been dropping balls. Those are execution. Not sure why we haven't had the TE's, Gaffney and Armstrong attacking the slot more. But, it seems like everyone looks at the lack of completions there and decides it is the scheme. There are people running those routes though so it may be the scheme not giving those routes a high enough priority or it could be Carr taking other options 1st so we don't truly know.

Keep it up NO BULL after all it did work marveously on Mack Brown. I kept looking for my post this week but I guess they had to come around on their own
