I understand what you are saying.. what I mean by not drafting BPA, is that if you have a good WR corp.. you dont draft a WR in the first round just cause he is the best player on the draft. But also, just cause you need a tackle, you dont draft whatever tackle is available either. you have to weigh your needs against the players available.. and take the best player available that you can use. Now... in the rare situation where there are no good players available at any of your needs.. then you would just draft BPA.

something i found interesting.

Quote:
On Sunday, the Texans running game had its best day in team history. Houston runners carried the ball 43 times for 211 yards, nearly doubling the number of passes thrown. It has been a Dom Capers staple to have an efficient running game that allows the defense to take control late in games. Going into next season, Houston looks to adopt that philosophy and become a winning team. With a win next week, Houston will achieve an 8-8 record, the second best record for a Dom Capers coached team. The one common niche among the two seasons is running the ball more than passing.

In Capers' best season, the 1996 Panthers ran the ball 502 times, passed 487 and won the time of possession battle, 30:48 to 29:12. Currently, Houston has run 456 times and thrown 445 times. By no coincidence, Houston is winning the time of possession battle 30:31 to 30:01.
from this article http://www.houstontexans.com/gameday/games/game_16.php

Id say that is a big indicator of our improvement, and shows that the path Dom is taking with this expansion franchise, is working.

What that article doesn't say is that 68 of those runs are David Carr scrambling. Those 68 runs shouldn't be counted as called running plays, but rather called passing plays. 513 called passing plays and 388 called running plays. 57% pass and 43% run.

Whoohoo, we are now getting an extra 32 seconds of game time for our tickets. What brain trust of a writer wrote that and didn't notice the game had somehow gone over an hour?

From NFL.com--30:15 for the offense, 29:45 defense--hey that adds up to an hour, how did that happen?

Fact is we are only positive on TOP because of dominating the Jags so badly in the last game. Until then we have been upside down almost all season.

how many OT games did we play? all I can think of is the minnesota game.. that would be he only reason I can think of with the time of possession equaling over an hour.

Not quite, Carr has had a couple of QB sneaks, some run/pass rollouts and those falls downs at the end of the games count as runs, but i see you working.
