Default Just a possible observation..

Has anyone else noticed the body language of most of the players, with the exception of JJ Watt and K Jax, and maybe a couple of others?

To me, and it may just be me, it seems they have given up on their coaches.

I have to imagine, as it's frustrating for fans, they players have to be tired of the 3rd and long draws and screens, the not going for it on fourth when trailing, and the overall bad playcalling.

As a business manager, I would think Mr. McNair would have to look at that as well as the bigger picture and not just the record.

Will one and done this year be acceptable to Mr. McNair?

Will he still think we are on the right track?

I have tried to stick with Kubiak and Shaub...but they just don't seem to be the ones that can get us over the hump.

For the last 10 years, I didn't expect much as a fan, but I still had a great time rooting and enjoyed our wins. For the last 3, it has just been heartbreaking. We have the talent, I know this for certain, but we are missing some key ingredients to be a contender. Heart, intensity, and even courage seem to be lacking on 70% of the team.

I know these players used to play their hearts out for Kubes...but it just doesn't look or feel that way anymore.

I hope Bob McNair makes the right decision if we get bounced from the first round this year and realized he needs to capitalize on his current stock of assets and find better management.

Thoughts?

See, I notice that too. It's like they are in the huddle and Shaub calls the play and they trot out all depressed, like, "Really?"

You also notice, that when something big is drawn up, they come out more excited. You can see it in their body language.

I also think the defense has gotten to the point to where they are trying to force that fumble or make the big play everytime because of our offensive ineptitude, which is why they've looked subpar.

There is something mentally wrong with this team right now and it starts at the top.

I think they "Kubiak ass chwing" was a farce, and never really happened." He's so, "Aw Shucks" and it sickens me when it comes to coaching. I'd love to keep Kubiak and Wade as coordinators, but it'd be demoralizing to for Kubes to get demoted, but may be a wake up call. If I was McNair, I would have Have swapped Wade and Kubiak's responsibilities after the New England blow out.

We have gotten this way as a society though, where we except mediocrity and how dare you call out failure or you are not a fan at all. It's sad, but that's where we're headed as a country, and as a people.

Ok, when was the last time the offense got out in front of somebody and made the other teams offense start taking chances to get back in a game? Find an opportunistic defense and they're usually playing for a team that's playing from in front. As we stopped getting all over people from the opening kickoff we stopped getting as many turnovers. Conversely as we began falling behind in games suddenly we were the ones getting taken advantage of in this regard.

Nailed it again, Herv. You are exactly correct. Too many people just look at stats instead of watching football games. Most turnovers are a result of offenses getting too risky. And how do you make offenses get risky? By putting the freaking ball in the freaking end zone!

We aren't getting turnovers because we simply aren't scoring the football. Teams are able to play conservative most of the game because they know eventually this team is going to give up a big play or two and our offense can't score to save their lives.

Simply pathetic.

Agree completely. Rep to you and the OP as well.

I was telling my friends the same thing yesterday. They just look totally deflated like they know what Kubiak is doing isn't going to work. I don't remember when it was, or even what quarter, but I remember there being a running play on 1st or 2nd down and the defense had stacked the box. Everyone and their mother KNEW the Texans were running the football. There was no question about it. And just the way the offense ran, it looked like they were in slow motion just running through the motions knowing the play would fail. Schaub couldn't audible out of it (because apparently he isn't allowed to) and sure enough Arian was stopped for a loss. It was pathetic.

So yeah, I agree. This team has quit IMO, but our team is full of choir boys who won't stand up and say anything.

When the Texans had a ground game and defense like they had last year, they could simply impose their will on the Bengals and even the Ravens in the playoffs. T.J. Yates wasn’t ready to win on the road in Baltimore, but the Texans did what they needed to on both sides of the ball thanks to the ground game and the defense. Those elements aren’t the same this year so the entire idea of “imposing your will” has to be shelved. It’s no longer about “the system,” coach. It’s about putting the pieces together and crafting a gameplan that causes concern on that other sideline.

Thanks for the link. And Lance is definitely on point right here...

Matt Schaub has saved his worst football of the year for the end of the season. Right now, he is playing football like the guy at the Let It Ride table in Las Vegas who is playing $5 per hand. You know that guy doesn’t bet enough to win big. He won’t go completely broke because he won’t risk that last $20 bill in his pocket, but you also know that all he’s doing is killing time. He’s not really gambling to win. That’s what Schaub feels like to me right now.

The running game and the offensive line issues can’t be fixed right now. Kubiak and his crew can run more toss plays or they can run more of their gap plays, but the outside zone game, the Texans’ bread-and-butter, just isn’t going to get it done this year. This offensive line is nowhere near as effective as last year’s group was and a talent infusion is needed at two and maybe three spots. That can’t be fixed in-season, but it can be managed. Maximizing the team’s strengths and minimizing their weaknesses is on Gary Kubiak’s shoulders now and he has to rise to the occasion and find a way to win a hand with 9-10 suited.

Yeah their expresions were pretty bad. Especially the one where AJ facepalmed and OD was also looking all confused. The body language has been terrible since the NE game. The last time I have seen this team all smiles was the Thanksgiving game. Everyone looks pissed off, on both offense and defense. Kubiak is a crappy playcaller. Its so easy to call out the plays when you watch them since they are so predictable. I don't know if Schaub isn't allowed to audible, or just isn't capable, too. It was pretty sad seeing a rookie audible out of plays and carve the defense up a bit.

I think what really sold me on it was when AJ just let the ball sail through his arms. I had my feelings, had my beliefs but the fan in me kept overlooking them. When AJ non chalantly attempted to catch that sure fire TD, I just knew this team was done playing for Kubiak. Being a "contender" and then being blown out by the likes of Rodgers and Brady because of coaching ineptitude has to be disheartening.

I've also seen some terrible to almost biased officiating against the Texans since the Lions game. Some of it has been downright terrible. I'll have to watch again with out my battle red glasses on, but I don't think the league fancies the Texans much.

What makes me the maddest is the talent on this football team on BOTH SIDES of the ball. Arian, AJ, OD, Watt, JoJo, Kareem, Manning, Barwin (at least he looked talented last year and before the injury two years ago), Duane Brown, Myers, Antonio, etc.

What has happened? Well, the OP told us what happened, and I couldn't agree more.

Really????? You truly think AJ missed catching that ball because he was DONE playing for Kubiak?? Sorry, but that's just laughable! I've never been a huge Kubes fan, but, I've read MANY, MANY articles about how much the team backs him, and wants him to stay here. Besides, AJ would never hurt the team by deliberately, "non chalantly," not trying to catch a ball. That's not his style, and an insult to him as a player and a person!! JMO! The rest of your post I agree with, esp the officiating part. OD and Posey had so many players on them I thought they had sticky glue on their jerseys!!

Agreed. Rep to you as well.

I just don't understand what McNair isn't seeing. He obviously must really hate football, because there is no way he has been watching this team the last few years.

Go research my posts. You might also have to look under the name ckw, but I have been calling for Kubiak's head since 8-8 round 2. The guy simply does not have "it". He is too busy staring at his playbook hoping for that "eureka" moment that never comes. I got back on the bandwagon to be a good Texans fan midway through last season. I figured ok, all Kubiak needed was a good defensive coach. I'll give him a chance.

So surely now that we have a great defensive coach, surely the offense is going to keep playing well, putting up 25 per game, and we would be a legit Super Bowl contender. Wrong!!!

Same problems. Defense quit playing out of their mind and what does the offense do? Nothing.

This team has given up on Gary. Now it is time Bob does the same thing.

Go research my posts. You might also have to look under the name ckw, but I have been calling for Kubiak's head since 8-8 round 2. The guy simply does not have "it". He is too busy staring at his playbook hoping for that "eureka" moment that never comes. I got back on the bandwagon to be a good Texans fan midway through last season. I figured ok, all Kubiak needed was a good defensive coach. I'll give him a chance.

So surely now that we have a great defensive coach, surely the offense is going to keep playing well, putting up 25 per game, and we would be a legit Super Bowl contender. Wrong!!!

Same problems. Defense quit playing out of their mind and what does the offense do? Nothing.

This team has given up on Gary. Now it is time Bob does the same thing.
Kubiak, Shaub, Marciano and Dennison must go. I don't even know what Dennison does. Is he just there because the team is supposed to have an OC?

TJ Yates is NOT the answer either. I'm glad many of you Yates fans are not talent evaluators. The kids got spunk, but the rest of his game is junk.

Keenum went undrafted for a reason, so don't even go there.

We need to look at QB in one of the first 2 rounds next year, get a new coach in here, keep Shaub another year (since I believe it was 2 years guaranteed anyway) and then go from there. If I was AJ, I'd be pissed. He is such a class act and loyal dude. One of my favorite Houston Sports stars next to Hakeem and Biggio of all time. Dre deserves better and dammit, Houston fans deserve better! If we don't get it together, Watt might walk at the end of his rookie contract. I'd hate to see that because that boy is growing on me too!

Mcnair has to see how unhappy those two are .
