Default Slow starts on offense

This may be nitpicking, BUT this has been a pattern for a while now going back a few years. Now, if it has to happen and the Texans come out with wins then so be it. I feel though the reason for that sometimes is lack of urgency. Like when they get down like in the SD game, they score at will to get back in the game. The defense has picked up the slack when the offense gave the opponent's D 7 points. I also notice we play better when there is urgency and uptempo, and with the state of the line, it would be good to keep the defense off balance. They can be unstoppable when they want to be. I just wish we'd see more of it. [End of Rant]

Maybe it's the Texans strategy? You know, let the other team exhaust themselves, get over-confident (Like the times Phillip Rivers was signalling number 1 and clenching his fists towards the San Diego bench)....

Then a few minutes later, Phillip is picking himself off the turf; wondering what the hell just hit him and his team!

I can remember far back, watching the really good teams doing such....cruising along, not overstressing, watching the other teams hoot 'n holler, then saying: O.K. guys - guess it's time to play!

From a fans' standpoint, we would like them to just kick arse all game long to please our insatiable desires for our team to stomp every adversary into oblivion....ain't gonna happen.

That wily Kubiak. He has managed to convince people the Texans are slow starters and after they slow start their way into a big lead will try to run out the clock, literally.

Wile E. Kubyote.

Turns out it isn't a Denny's menu. It's an ACME catalog.

Opening drive resulted in a TD last week.

If that's what you mean by slow start, I see what you mean.
