Totally agree with this.. While I think there is a very good attribute to keeping the team on an even keel, he needs to let them get balled out emotional!! I honsetly think this is the area where Brian Cushing is the most missed.

I cannot subscribe to the theory that these guys have quit; subconsciously or otherwise.

If A.J. played his heart out when we went 2-14, it defies logic that he would purposefully drop a TD pass to spite Kubiak when he finally makes it to playoffland.

If anything, they're trying too hard not to screw up. That leads to thinking about not screwing up instead of just going out and flying around. If they have to think first instead of acting on instinct, that puts them a split sec behind the other guy. ...a half step away from where they need to be. They get caught looking instead of doing. And that will get them beat.

I see this in Schaub more than anyone else.

Damn if I know what the cure for it is.

In the Denver game earlier he also gave up that Manning TD to Decker that spark their comeback . It was the exact same play but was on the other side of the hash mark. That guy is a HUGE liability at the safety position.

Wining. That's the only cure. They need to get this "biggest game in Texans history" crap out of there minds & just play football.

We're guilty of the same thing here. I just saw the "The road to the play offs start today" thread & the "if we win today we'll go to the AFC Championship game. If not we're one & done" thinking we have. Winning or losing that game had nk more importance than the Patriots game. We win Saturday, we're still alive. Rinse & repeat. That's all there is to it.

76 & I are just acknowledging there have been some egregious calls... that's all. Not saying that's why we lost, but we understand how someone could adopt that idea.
Iwasn't directing the comment 'you' at you- maybe I should have wrotten 'one'.

Bad calls in every game....

In the Patriots game, one of our defenders ran in front of their receiver while both going after the ball and defensive PI is called. Then, the exact opposite occured and Offensive PI is called. Just stuff like that...
Watched the whole game- nothing stood out. Angles can be different so what you see is different than what the refs see......

I watched each games several times.
I watch a Texans game pretty much every day besides other games I want to watch, so please understand that I have good reasons to point out unbalanced officiating.

I described some of the penalties in the other thread titled "Blame the players, not the ref". If you have NFL Game Rewind, you can pull up the play list to get to those plays very quickly.
