Default I say its all on Schaub's Play and Kubiak's Playcalling

Both have been sucking it up lately.

Schaub has no experience in the playoffs, he has folded in the primetime games this year and with #1 seed/bye on the line. What confidence does he have? Especially with the right side of theOline?

Kubiak might not be on the hot seat because of the playoffs last year, the Division title this year and the playoffs in 12= but a 1 and done could jeapordize a long tenure.

We all can't have elite QBs like Joe Flacco.

I'm no Kubiak apologist as his play calling and stubborness drives me up the wall at times...but...I have a hard time always blaming kubiak. He may be calling the correct pass plays for the defense against us. When schaub throws to a guy in tripple coverage I don't immediately blame kubiak. When schaub throws to a guy 2 yards beyond the line of scrimmage on 3rd and 14, I don't immediately blame kubiak. When schaub doesn't see or feel the blitz everyone else knows is comming and option to a hot route, I dont immediately blame kubiak.

There have been plays to be made .... the guy's on the field , Schaub most notably , just havent gotten the job done.


Look back at the Dolts game and see how many plays were left on the field .... Casey gets behind the entire defense , Schaub underthrows him resulting in an INT. #80 drops a sure TD , at least 9 other plays I saw where Schaub made poor reads , either missing open recievers or throwing into coverage or just plain bad throws.
An offensive line that allowed the Dolts backup defensive linemen to consistently penetrate on rushing plays .... and had several panalties.


Its hard for me to blame the guy calling the plays when the players make so many mistakes .... when these are the same plays they ran earlier in the year and were putting up 30 a game.


Each play is a microcosm .... each player has to do their part and any failure by any one player negatively affects that of all the others , some more magnified than others .... There have been far too many individual failures over the course of the last 6 games.

Sorry, you don't have a point.
You don't watch the Texans games close enough to have a real clue.
A majority of Texans fans don't have time to rewatch and crucify each play like some of us and they don't see the whole thing, either.

ass/u/me

You have no idea how much time I have. The majority of fans of any team don't have time to watch the game live either- they sit in sports bar running their mouths about everything but the game. Same at the houses where peple have a party every sunday; everything but the game.

I've watched every Texans game this season; the playcalling in the last 4 games is different than it was at the beginning of the season.

The 'point' was about the Texans; the othr guy tried to make it about Flacco.

How is the play calling different as a whole?

The Texans have a different game plan each week, so whatever point you're trying to make is moot anyway.

Right now, I think it's a collective confidence issue. Like others have said, I think it starts at the top.

But I don't have a problem with the play calling. I've got more of a problem with dropped balls (KDub, Arian, OD, Andre, LeStar, Keyshawn, Andre...... everybody but Posey had a first down that they dropped), and poorly thrown balls.

Posey dropped a ball, too.
It was not going to be a first down, but it would have helped the down and distance.

I think the pc has changed over the course of the season. Drops are part of the game but you are correct; there have been more and more of them lately.

Texans have more problems than the two you mentioned.

Special Teams haven't been so special and the defense has had their problems as well.

To wit:
The Colts took the ball with 9:46 left in the 4th quarter. The Texans defense couldn't get off the field and the Texans offense never saw the ball again as Luck took three kneel downs to run out the clock.

All of those issues coupled with the fact that the Bengals are a better team than the one the Texans saw last year and it could make for a disasterous Saturday........... errrrrrr season.
