Default Concerned....

Our passing game really concerns me, AJ was invisible and Cromartie is not that good. Martin has not shown up, thank god we had foster tonight. I hope jean comes back for the GB game, besides AJ (sometimes) the only other guy i feel confident in, in his limited time is Jean.

Maybe it was just a sloppy game, we did get the win but i'm not left feeling very confident after this game.

On the bright side we are 5-0

I was surprised by the Jets secondary without Revis. They played a heck of a game. Schaub played with a clean pocket most of the time but just couldn't find an open receiver. I am concerned with our young guys, Posey and Martin, they need to separate themselves.

They'll have games like this. The key is to win them.

I'll take it. Lets start worrying when they lose their first one.

Their secondary even without Revis is not a bad unit. Cromartie will give up a big play occasionally but he's a tough corner to line up against on every down.

Just a typical, ugly win if you ask me. Par for the course.

KW was getting it done and so was OD. We have seen games like this is the past, but what is concerning me is that AJ and Schaub are on total different pages.

I mean i cant believe the big drop off in production from AJ, think back to 2010 when he had the ankle injury until now. He was still a dominant game changing WR, now it seems he can never get open. Maybe his skills have diminished this much from last years groin injuries ??? Either way it makes me sad to see this older less dominant version of AJ

It's pretty much a given that AJ isn't what he used to be. But it would be unrealistic, considering what all has happened to him injury-wise, to expect any different.

Why does Kubiak, seemingly, run the ball after every incomplete first down pass? Drives me crazy. 2nd tight game where we can't run out the clock with the ball in our hands.

We're hurting - injuries are piling up on us so I count that into our poorer play.

Win is a win tho,

Win is a win tho,
Kubiak's creative playcalling goes completely out the window once the fourth quarter starts and our team has the lead.

Difference is now though that our defense can shutdown teams when needed.

Not just this game, but here lately KJax looks like the best DB we got. People can hate all they want too, but put the KJax hatorade down for a minute and you will see I'm right. Dude has great coverage, in the right places now. I'm impressed with him big time.

Patience is a virtue. Just because a player struggles in his first year or two does not make him a bust for all time. See also: Brown, Duane

I know that, I've been a huge KJax advocate. Just ask SteelblueTexan. We've had some words over his KJ hating, but we've come to terms since. I'm crow trapping right now, and he will be feasting by seasons end!

I dont care what anyone says, AJ is not right. He is either injured OR playing scared not wanting to get injured. Last night he ran routes terribly and showed no stop and cut like we have seen in the past, nor was he aggressive after his catch. On the one over the middle, instead of turning up field and lowering the boom like he used to, he coward, ran backwards and fell down. Something ain't right.

If you've watched AJ carefully this year, he has basically run straight line routes or routes with gently angles. You haven't seen his signature sharp curl back or acute cut angle routes. In this last game, he was ahead of his defender going down the sideline and Schaub threw short. AJ was looking back (as was the defender) and was fully aware that it was falling short right into the hands of the defender. Yet he made no attempt to stop acutely to go back for the ball to break up a potential interception.........an over the back move that he has always been known for in the past. And this is only one of many examples. All of these observations go to the question of knee stability, something that I voiced concern over following his injuries last year, specifically with the decision made to surgically clip the partially torn semitendinosus hamstring muscle (a small muscle shown to contribute to knee stability and explosiveness), in order to be able to get him back on the field for the playoffs. He appears to be avoiding maneuvers that require heavy side-to-side stresses on his knees. It seems like game planning for AJ is being designed to exactly use only certain types of routes.......again to avoid exposing his knee instability problem and its limitations, at the same time trying to protect him from major re-injury.

After 5 weeks, FootballOutsiders has him at only 28th in WR ranking, with Walter right there with him at 29th. (No other Texans receivers are ranked in the top 93) http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/wr

Default Re: Concerned....

My only real concern right now has been the same one I have had for a few years. That's Kubiak. I don't want to say too much since we are 5-0 but again my doubts resurfaced tonight with those conservative calls at the end. I just don't like the playing not to lose play calls.

I am convinced that Wade is the one that has changed the culture of this team.

Anyway, that's all I am going to say right now.

Hopefully the guy proves me wrong and takes this team all the way to the finish line.
