There is not a large disparity in the stat between the first and second halves. The Texans had (8) 1st and 2nd down opportunities in the first half and went run-run 3 times (37%). In the first quarter they had 4 opportunities and went run-run twice (50%).

This is by far the biggest myth perpetuated by the Fire Palmer crowd who think they see things that aren't there. It's typically a function of focusing on the failures and taking the successes for granted.

Hey i'm not saying fire palmer, because if our O-Line and offense had executed the plays properly we wouldnt even be on this post, just saying different things can be done if the original plan isnt working ! I like Palmer dont get me wrong, but lets use the imagination or something, and devise plays to help out the o-line especially on freeneys side !

Pfft, it's simple....

1. Improve the O-line either with time or better players.
2. Utilize Wells as the premier back, Davis as the 3rd down
3. Don't forget your TE's
4. Don't lock on anyone - check em off..... quickly.

See? Simple.
