Tex, if you want something to gripe about how about kicking the field goal on 1st and goal with over 2 min left

What was Detroit's time out situ at that point? I don't recall how many they had left at the time. If they were out of time outs, then your strategy is sound.
But if still had two or three left, they would have used them after every play and we still wouldn't have been able to run the time down to near nothing. Does anyone recall how many they had at the time??

Same ole sorry 10-1, playoff going to, home field advantage winning, best record in the NFL having, 5 game win streaking, Kubiak ...

I guess the fools that ripped him for the play call that sprouted this thread now feel pretty silly after finding out that it was supposed to be a pass to Casey but Schaub changed it at the LOS because he didn't like the look the defense gave him.

The world's not right if we're not complaining about the Texans. All this 10-1 crap is cutting into our complaining.

Being that as it may, after watching the defense get exposed the last two weeks, it is obvious that we are going to lose in the play-offs.

We're just getting an early start.

They might of had one left. You only get two during overtime and they had already used at least one, on the first field goal attempt.

I questioned the decision at the time but thought about that afterwards .... I think under the circumstances , playing on the road , after a short week already having played an OT game last week and having one of the NFL's best defenses ... thats a reasonable thought process.

They were trying to win .... instead of playing not to lose. (so much for the turtle Kubiak ?!)

Kubiak's best play call of the day was Forsett for 81 yards!
Agreed. I've never been a big fan of Graham. I was quite upset we didn't push the ball closer on the 51 yarder. Now that I know the play was audibled, it's whatever. Honestly, our defense is killing me. Going from being great on 3rd downs to this? Not good IMO. Eh, hopefully this extra rest will help get us back on track.

Today wasn't about Kubiak. It was a short week, a long previous game, a highly motivated opponent fighting for their season, and a Texans team that's starting to get beat up and maybe just would have rather been anywhere but Detroit on Thanksgiving day.

They were sloppy. They looked a step slow. The secondary was dreadful and the pass rush (apart from Watt) was right there with them. The offense was slow to start up and inconsistent when they did finally get going. Schaub was inaccurate at times.

None of this was Kubiak's fault. Sorry, he called that game very well considering the state his team was in.
This post sums up my feelings about Gary today. The only questionable call other than running the ball and letting Graham kick a long FG, was letting him kick the GW FG on 1st down. (Too Conservative. IMHO) Appartently Gary trusts Graham alot more than the Texans fanbase does.

His team had just played 10 qtrs of football in four days. His guys were getting beat up. Both teams had had chances to score in O/T and the way I understand the new O/T rule is once that's been achieved - both teams having at least one possession - then the next score wins. We were close enough for this kick to be a chip shot - even for Graham - so why run any more plays? They'd be just additional opportunities for something else strange - Foster to fumble with his banged up hand or Suh to get another cheap shot at Schaub - to happen in an already strange game.

Did I miss something? I thought I watched every Texans game this season, but when did Graham earned his Adam Vinaterri Trust Badges?

In his career he has one kick made over 50 yds. He also miss 2 makeable FG 4 days ago. And yet our offense loiter around the 30 yd line without a care in the world.

Is Graham married to Kubiak's daughter or something? Where is all this trust for Graham coming from before that miss FG?

This slow down offense doesn't work there is a time you have to let your qb do his thing GK is not trusting the QB to do his job you cant win like that.

yup, same old kubiak indeed. 10-1, a .528+ winning percentage that's climbing, a top tier offense every season even when we sucked, and just happened to do that while replacing all but 1 player in 6 years. i especially love that the hate is coming after we score 77 points in two games.

now i just wish he'd give schaub more freedom to throw, like for 500 yards, or he'd call the play i drew up in my backyard instead of kicking a field goal to win, or go for it on 4th and 15 on our own 2 yard line. the conservative playcalling has to stop or else we're going to lose every game ever!
