Default Texans Secondary = Hot Garbage

This is getting ridiculous and this is not some knee jerk reaction crap. Something is going to have to change schematically because our current strategy clearly isn't working.

These guys are getting smoked if the pass rush doesn't get there in a nano second. Wait until we play quality QB's and WR's in the playoffs.

The announcers brought this up, and I thought it was a valid question. Why don't we play more zone? Playing only man can be dangerous and leave us exposed to big plays.

Because playing man-to-man allows us to send all the free linebackers to get pressure on the QB. The strength of the defense is the front seven. This is especially true now that J.Joseph is out.

I have to agree. I don't think the problem has to do with personnel. When all of our guys are healthy I see us as having a good secondary. Joseph and Manning are really good. Jackson seems to not be playing as well today as he did against Megatron but I will cut him some slack due to his performance as a whole this year.

We don't have the LBs to play Zone. Been a problem of ours for a long time. Generally speaking we've had very good play making LBs. But they're usually thumpers. Demeco.... thumper, Cush... thumper, Sharpton, Dobbins..... thumper.

Their best game is attacking the LOS, getting after the QB & anybody who happens to be back there. We talked about Demeco playing sideline to sideline, & Cush, sideline to sideline. But when an offense stretches the field more than 7 or 8 yards, our LBs have always been a liability.

I will say though, Barwin & Rudd may change that. They appear to understand man, zone, & route recognition.

HMMMM dont know what yall were seeing but to me when we were playing nearly 100% man early in the game we were shutting them down, Then in the 4th we go to this safe defense and give up 15, 20 every play. Havent we all come to expect this when we get a lead ?

We play a high risk, high reward defense. which when you have most of your starting LB, and one corner down, we are definitely not the same we were early in the year.

And when you have different personnel in, you've got to adjust.

Losing JoJo is huge, because it moves every other CB up... Losing Ball and McCain as well means we are in trouble. That's playing without CB #1, 3, 4...

If JoJo can come back and be his old self again we should be fine!

With HOU being this weak at CB due to injuries NE will come out and run 4&5wr sets and expose our weakness this is what they do.

I have a bad feeling that McCain either fractured his foot, or tore his Lisfranc.

Any word on some FA CBs?

Exactly.

I was actually impressed with the D considering they were down 3 of their original 4 starting linebackers and 3 of their top 4 CBs.

They still gave up plays and that's not a good thing, but if the O could have produced a decent drive once in the 2nd half it might have made a difference. We can't live with 10 Donnie Jones punts a game. That's inexcusable for an offense with this much talent.

They were down Three Corners.


J.Jo didnt dress , Ball didnt either , McCain got injured during the game.

Then add in Cushing , James and Reed out at the LBer spots .... thats significant.


Three of the top four corners and three of the four LBers to start the season yet they win on the road and give up 10 points .... and people want to complain.


As for the scheme and playing so much man coverage , I have no problem with it. The Titans never solved it and did nothing until late in the 4th quarter when they were forced to take chances.

Also it doesnt tip the Texans defenses hand giving other teams more film to evaluate exotic coverages.

I don't know about that. Roc & Harris looked pretty good for their first time out. I know it's New England & we want to win this game.

But to me, it is more important to Jjo healthy for when it really matters. Maybe we won't beat New England without him. But I think our chances are good enough against Minnesota & Indy.

Not that I know he will be healthy in 4 weeks. I don't. But if I'm GK, if he isn't 100%, if he feels a little soreness, if he walks with a little limp, if he's not running at top speed & favoring that groin..... he sits.

I wouldn't "force" him into a game until the play-offs started.

You mean looked good despite the penalties? Harris had about 3 and Roc at least 1. I think penalties were the biggest issue today, along with having half of the defense being new starters.
