Default Why the Texans were unable to go deep on Jax

This shot is indicative of why the Texans were unable to go deep on Jax but why they had success w/run & short stuff

Deep safeties, soft corner coverage and the mike dropping into mid-zones. Of course the Texans had 5 guys in the pattern on this one...

Looks like Texans defense before new DBs coach.

Exactly. They took away Dre and the deep ball and gave us dinking, dunking and running all day.

you also dont show your hand if you dont have to. kubiak is a very long term thinker, sometimes a positive and sometimes to his detriment. i believe that he wanted to iron a few things out, and give future opponents nothing to work with. with the game in the bag shortly after his script ended, kubes went into practice mode - working on the team and getting ready for next week. heck that might have been his plan from the beginning with the onslaught of screens and play action - backing the jags up into coverage so we could just grind this one out.

i thought it was tunnel vision, win the game in front of you at all costs by any means necessary, take nothing for granted, and make it a habit of playing full speed, so that you don't have to hope that you can flip the switch later on should things get desperate. is this not the case?
Yeah you just put it on cruise control and go into "practice" mode.

You've never heard the phrase " Play like you practice"????

I've had wrong this whole time!

Default Re: Why the Texans were unable to go deep on Jax

funny. yall make it sound as if i said to go home at halftime. does cushing play harder when he blitzes than when he's in coverage? does schaub start throwing underhanded because we're not using more creative route combinations? no, the players are still out there for 60 minutes, there's nothing for the coach to ramp up. instead of using a stunt with cushing and barwin when we dont need it, save it. same with route and blocking combos when the basics are getting the job done. we're in the same packages, there's no intensity change from the playcalling, only aggression and risk/reward.

the point was that kubiak likes to use one game to set up another. same as a run will set up play action later. we used screen and play fakes early to back the jags up and then proceeded to rush for 200+ yards and throw short passes to continue drives. since we struggled running against the dolphins, rushing was obviously an area kubiak wanted to set up early and work on whenever possible. now, if you're denver, do you not cheat up and send run blitzes early based on the routes and playcalling you've been studying all week? what about the offensive linemen, how do they prepare for blitz packages and disguises we didnt use?

I just think you are over thinking it.
DRP wrapped it up in one sentence. Take what the defense is giving you.
Plain and simple.
