I don't know. If a great coach can allow a great team to have an off-day, wouldn't we expect a sub-par coach with a sub-par team to have even more off days?

Winning a Super Bowl isn't easy, not for the Super Teams with their Super QBs, & their Super coaches.

Why do we expect more from Kubiak & Schaub? That doesn't make sense.

I really believe that's more Schaub than Kubiak... Kubiak said as much after one of the games. Can't remember which one, but we threw the ball in one of those situations trying to pick up the first down & Barry Warner asked Kubiak why he doesn't call plays like that more often in those situations.

Gary answered he does, but Matt checks them to that run, or draw. Matt's on the field, he sees something he didn't like, chose not to risk it & we won 12 games because of it....

It's in one of the podcasts if you care to dig through them.

MSR

The difference between McCarthy/Belichick and Kubiak is when they get a team down they put their throats on the other teams necks. Gary plays the odds game. Both ways are successful, but I'm a more foot on the throat kinda guy.

Of course they've got Brady/Rodgers HOF'ers at QB and Gary has Schaub and his messed up foot. This is why I hope Gary played things so close to the vest last yr. I've got my doubts.

If Schaub is too reliant on dbs biting on play action then it won't matter how much separation guys get. Idk about "throwing guys open", but he needs to get the ball out on time and if the receivers are doing their job, then the plays will be there to be made, play action or not.

He's thrown for, or has been on track to throw for, 4000 yards per season.

We talk about play action a lot here, but we're not anymore dependent on it than the Patriots, or whatever team Peyton Manning is throwing for.

Look, I'll be the first to say that Schaub is not my kind of QB. If I were picking & choosing, Schaub wouldn't make my cut. But he's a talented QB, a starter in this league & enough for Kubiak to work with.

It's a shame that we're so late into his career before he was "really" able to test his mettle, playing against the best of the best when something is on the line. But it is what it is. We're "stuck" with a pretty good QB.

Yes we are.

There's a reason why most QB's have looked better in our system than they have in some other places.

There's a reason we were able to trade Sage for a mid round pick. There's a reason why Kubiak himself harps on why running the ball effectively is so important for this offense.

There's a reason why a 5th round rookie came in towards the end of the year and did some good things and helped us win games.

We are very dependent on the play action to help our QB's out. Same thing in Washington with RG3.

And you can throw out stats about the percentage of times we run PA vs other teams and none of that matters. When we do play action teams HAVE to respect that because if it's a real hand off and they don't, we'll gash them. So they have to play honestly and can't cheat. Red Skins are even more dangerous because of RG3. When you have a notorious run game your play action is a more viable weapon.

When you are on defense and you see the Texans go to hand the ball off, you're more worried about that than when you see Tom Brady go to hand off. You WANT Brady handing the ball off. You WANT Peyton handing it off. You WANT Rodgers handing the ball off. Not that Schaub is a complete scrub or some loser QB, but that's just how it is. If I'm on defense against the Texans I'd rather shut the run down and take my chances against Schaub.

Default Re: Texans_Chick: Texans are not a “run first team”

Re: the thread topic...

I don't know about run first or whatever, but in comparison to the rest of the rest of the league, we are considered a team that is very dependent on the run game. We didn't run the ball all that well last year and Tate was in the dog house/injured so I think our attempts were down some. It's much easier to run the ball on 3rd and 2 as opposed to 3rd and 4.

I don't know what the 4,000 yard stuff means either. That number puts you closer to the middle of the pack than it does to the top. 10 QB's threw for more yards than Schaub last year.

Since every play is designed to be successful if every man does his job properly, are you sure it's the play calling or the execution that results in having to punt?

Default Re: Texans_Chick: Texans are not a “run first team”

Texans are not a pound it down your throat no matter what kind of offense. I think whether we run more or pass more is dependent mostly on the type of defense we go against. But, the play action is extremely important to us, and it's not just the fake by Schaub or even the running ability of Foster--it's the line play starting out the same every time regardless of whether we run or pass. It's all three combined that make DBs hesitate and LBs freeze in their tracks.

I believe Schaub led the league in passing yards in 09 (when we had no running game and passed a lot). He has also had portions of seasons since then where he looked REALLY good (like early last year--remember the Denver game), but has not had a full season like that since. There's always that possibility that Schaub could have a look-at-me-mofo season, or playoff season, like the dude in Baltimore, but he's (like the guy in Baltimore) just not a top 5 guy consistently at all. Top 5 guys are not easy to get. Indy threw out a whole season to try and get another one.

Exactly. How many times have we watched the opposing team stack the box to invade the backfield thus shutting down the running lanes? This disrupts the timing and by that time Matt doesn't have time to find a receiver. That's what concerns me about the continuity of our 0-line this year with the rooks that haven't gelled as a unit yet. I hope they can get it together quickly this season so we don't see a repeat of last year's performance.

Just curious, how many have done it three or more times in the last 5 or 6 years.

Same thing with 1000 yards for a running back, it's seems to be the norm now. But year in & year out it's only a few guys who can do it multiple years, fewer still who can do it in back to back years.

This isn't a career accomplishment deal. When Schaub is done then we can look back and appreciate his total career and the fact that he was consistently good and gave us a chance to win.

But on a year to year basis, I'm not sure that is super impressive.

Just like the 1,000 yard back. Do it for multiple years in a row and that is great and all, but for a season I'm not really wowed by that. It's good though.

Default Re: Texans_Chick: Texans are not a “run first team”

I just wrote this post because nationally I kept seeing references to "run first" team without putting into game context (like holding leads) or forgetting the balance of the offense.

I just don't think it is accurate. And it isn't like there's tons to write about now.

NFL defenses and individual players are fooled by play calling way less than we talk about on message boards and talk radio. they spend hours and entire careers studying keys based on formations and down and distance, etc. Way more important to have great execution than great play calling. A team does hope to do something the defense is not expecting, just only truly happens a handful of times a game.

Phillips Rivers 4
Eli Manning 3
Carson Palmer 3
Matt Schaub 3

To answer my own question, 8 QBs have thrown for more than 4000 yards 3 or more times in the last 5 years. Romo, Eli, Schaub, Rodgers, & Brady have done it 3 times. For Schaub, Rodgers, & Brady they did it in 3 of the last 4 years.

Phillip Rivers & Peyton Manning have done it in 4 of the last 5 years. Drew Brees has done it for the last 5 years, he led the league in Passing 3 times in the last 5 years.

Shaub led one year, Rivers led the other.

Both Matt Ryan & Matthew Stafford have thrown for 4000 yards in each of the last two seasons.

Passer rating (NFL.com's passer rating) QBs with a 92 or better (250 attempts) in the last 5 years,

Rodgers 5 of 5 He's a machine

Schaub 4 of the last 5 years 2012 he had a passer rating of 90

Brees 4 of the last 5 90.9 in 2010

Brady 4 of 5 2008 83.7 on 11 att

Manning 3 of 5 91.9 in 2010 & he missed the entire 2011 season.

Ryan 2 of 5 Last 2 years

Kaepernick 1 of 5 Only 218 att

Smith 1 of 5 Only 218 att

Wilson 1 of 5

RG3 1 of 5




That's pretty good company once you get past all the haterade.

What does Belichick and nearly every other coach in the league preach over and over and over...?
Do.
Your.
Job.

That's the key to winning. Execution. Do your job; beat the guy you're supposed to beat. Make the blocks you're supposed to make. See the open guy and make a good throw. When the throw comes, make the damned catch (I'm still looking at YOU Casey), get what yards you can, and don't put the ball on the ground.
Rinse. Repeat.
