I think part of our defensive problems is that we are seemingly never playing defense with a lead. Our defense is better when we are ahead. Our offense has been really good on 3rd down conversions in the past and now is just awful.

I'm not letting the defense off the hook, the offense brought us back to 17-13 and then the defense gives up a TD on the first drive after the half. Still, the offense doesn't 3 and out as much and we are in better shape defensively.

The Texans obviously need a speed/productive WR2 to open up the offense. An OG/RT need to be upgraded as well. So no, this isn't all on Schaub. Also Gary has had a history of being a conservative playcaller. (Not today)

Exact opposite? Do not follow, What other things are going on that I need to take into consideration?
You were saying that the Texans needed to score a ton of points.
Obviously, I had to assume that you were talking about Schaub (to a good degree) since none of your other valid points (in this last post) were mentioned earlier.

Or maybe I missed it?

I remember just a few years ago, most people here thought it was preposterous to ask our offense to have to score 30 points to win a game.

Now we need to score 42 or 43 or our offense is broke.

You guys..... I know you're a lot smarter than that.

And I believe at the time I mentioned Kaepernick and Wilson, there were few takers.

I hope we see Keenum next year competing with Yates and another guy.

I think Keenum can be a good one, but we do need back-up plan with him due to possible injury.

They need to score more TD's. (Not need time to do so)

Sorry I wasn't more clear

It doesn't help our offense when the opposing team punter (Mesko) keeps Schaub & Co. pinned back in terrible field position. By time Texans fight & claw to midfield they seem exhausted with the burden. Then Donnie Jones either makes poor contact with the football or doesn't angle/strategically knock the football down deep so in essence Patriots have only a short field to manage another score. I believe Donnie Jones average punt was only 36.4 yards per kick while Mesko averaged 52.8. But its actually worse than that because they don't count bringing the ball out to the 20 when its kicked into the endzone. They each kicked it 5 times so comparable field advantage was a plus 16.4 yards each possession to Tom Brady & the Patriot offense.

If Danieal Manning could have scored on those two big returns (he ran out of gas on the first one) we'd have won the game 42-41

Different competition, different standards.

It's a pretty simple concept really.

What? Did I somehow dream the 3 points we got on the first drive?
