We've had our opportunities and just can't seem to hang on to the ball. it's like they haven't seen a turnover in to long they don't know what to do when they get the opportunity.

Sad, really. I kept telling myself that the law of averages would eventually have to kick in, and we'd see something today. But I guess when opportunity comes our way, we miss the chance to take advantage of it. When football karma frowns on a team, it really frowns, including the lucky breaks not even going our way.

If you don't pressure the QB, you can't force them to make bad decisions. Making that change might help.

Season tix, section 651. I talked with a fellow sufferer about the 0 takeaways and he simply said, "They just can't do it." In other words, they don't have the ability to do the job. To me, it's not just luck. It's a matter of intensity and concentration. You earn turnovers, they don't just come your way. Though I think Capers deserves another year, a lack of intensity and concentration is a coaching flaw.

Our blitzes seem incredibly ineffective. I often found myself thinking that the Texans don't blitz enough. But the more I watch, the more I realize that they do Blitz sometimes. The problem is the blitz is ALWAYS picked up by the o-line. NO matter how many guys we send, nobody ever gets through. What gives?

we have to move guys around. stack the line, run em back and forth, and come on delayed blitzes. we have had some success on late blitzes. no sacks, but some pressure. thats what we need to do. back peek off the line and let him power through when the hole opens up.

We did have somewhat pressure on McNair, he would just dump it off to a wide open tight end or the reciever Faggins was covering, which was usually open too!

There was pressure on mcnaire, but he did have the dump offs. The problem with the blitzes are that they are predictable and easy to pick up because it is nothing but blitzing straight through lanes. There are no stunts, no trickery in the blitzes and not enough. If you watch the steelers, they have polamolu coming up to the line then on the snap pretending to drop into coverage and rolling back outside to come around the tackle for a sack. The guy spins in a cirlce and the oline doesnt watch. Why does this team not try anything creative. I say ditch capers, and get LeBeau from the steelers as a head coach who can really run the 3-4 on defense, and let him get someone credible for OC. This team has some athletes that are being wasted on defense. You have 4 fast LBs whose talent is not be exploited by dropping them back off the line and making them make plays down field. This is an argument that is the same as which came first, the chicken or the egg. The DBs cant cover because there is no pass rush, or at least not enough. The LBs have about 2-3 secs to get to the QB on their pass rush because the DBs arent covering long enough for them to be able to get to the QB.
