Default Re: The Texans will go to the Superbowl IF....

Haven't had much of a chance to post this season, but here's my take.

There is no 'magic bullet', but a few observations:

1. The d-line can only do so much, and by that I mean Watt. Simply put, our secondary isn't good enough to the carry the weight of mediocre front-seven play against the best of the best in a playoff scenario. Step up and make the play, ladies.

2. We do not play well from behind. Blame whoever you want for this but, either way, we won't make it past the first round if we start the 2nd quarter down by 17 to 21 points. There are no miracles in our future. Both offense and defense need to universally step it up and play up to their caliber if we wish to avoid this scenario.

3. Red zone offense; leaving points on the field and settling for FGs will not be good enough in the playoffs. This is something Kubiak (and Schaub) needs to focus on in the weeks to come.

Ultimately, I think it comes down to whether or not Gary and Wade have the boys ready to play...which makes me nervous.
