Default Can somebody please explain to me...can't pick up a blitz

...why we suck so bad against the blitz this year? Is it just because our offensive line stinks, or that we have RB injury issues? Is it that simple, or are there other reasons?

This offense has always struggled in the second half scoring dating back to last year.

Case has played great so far this season with everything stacked against him. You give schaub 7 years of mediocrity yet you cant even give keenum who has put up great numbers 5 games before you pull him.

SHAMELESS AND DISGUSTING.
I agree with this, the coaches do nothing to help the QB with the blitz, they call screens at the wrong time, they call draws at the wrong time, they empty the back field with no RB at the wrong time.

Why Matt McGloin has 3 passing TDs against our defense.

The burning question is: Has McNair seen enough of this clusterbuck to make wholesale changes when the season is over?

He has to realize that his team is the laughingstock of the NFL.

If that debacle in the red zone at the end of the game doesn't result in McNair's head exploding then he is as much the problem as anyone.

Default Re: Can somebody please explain to me...

I gotta throw in the the O-line has SUCKED all year. Also, Keenum, while I'm rooting for him, is not dealing with the blitz well at all and that's why they keep doing it excessively against him (that, & the O-line is a freaking turnstyle). He can't hit the hot receiver on the short route accurately, & I think he doesn't see him soon enough either. This is something he might improve on a lot in the future....or not....I don't know.

Schaub does that far better than Keenum, but we all know he isn't the answer.

We might need a NEW QB, along with a heart and a head coach.

I'm going to find the pink soap, or blue, or whatever.

You got a inconsistent offensive line (Newton is straight killing them on too many plays), our best pass protecting RB is out for the season and the best TE is out.

Plus this maybe just venom from the recent loss but I question some of the play calling being so predictable the defense knows what is coming and can out work our linemen.

How do you call for a draw play when the D has been blitzing progressively more the whole game & getting most of the pressure right up the middle? Actually, that's not even predictuable; it's just STUPID.

I agree, that is just stupid. It should be used rarely when you are going to have a play where you want to flood downfield with receivers. The Texans are using it a good percentage of the time.

Really McLovin had time to write a book and Keenum didn't have time read a txt.

If McNair doesn't see what has transpired here, I'm not sure what to think or what I am going to do. If he approaches this as something that is mendable with this current regime, I may just call it quits on this team.

I love my Texans, I am a diehard fan, truly. But I am not down for watching a failing organization fail year after year. If McNair doesn't see what is happening now, in this epic meltdown that we just witnessed, then he truly will never have a successful franchise. He'd have to get lucky.

But I don't think that is the case. I think everyone and their mom just saw this as what it truly was, a coaching/player meltdown. The end of the road. The end for this current regime.

Did the last 3 weeks make this board lose its collective memory about Schaub's response to blitzes?

Also the Raiders didn't blitz Schaub, there was absolutely no need, he's simply not good enough to win.

And simply not good enough to beat them with all day to throw against a soft zone, very sad.

How about calling a reverse, some screens or getting better blockers?

You had a banged up Ben Tate (who was never great at pass blocking when at his best) in there mostly and a small framed undrafted rookie in there as your primary RBs. Karim isn't doing JACK in special teams, he at least 10 lbs on Johnson, why not have him in on plays you know will require pass blocking?

We've kept Andrew Gardner on this team for almost 3 seasons, WHY when he hasn't sniffed at challenging anyone for a first or second string? How do we have Garrett Graham (13) a good but not special TE and Keyshawn Martin (5) who over his 2 seasons has actually dropped half the balls thrown his way have more targets then your young talented and promising 2nd WR Hopkins (2)?

As bad as the blitzing was and as bad our protection has been, we were out coached in the second half like we've been all season long and the coaches job is to fix problems when they are obvious trends. Guys failing to pick up the blitz is a obvious trend.

The O-Line sucks.
The backs and TEs are terrible blockers.
Keenum can't read a defense.
Schaub is a statue.
Our receivers are not burners and need time to create separation.

Add it all together are you're going to have a bad time.

Default Re: Can somebody please explain to me...can't pick up a blitz

On Keenum's INT Wade Smith got blown up and his man hit Keenum pretty much as he was throwing.

On one sack Brooks blew his assignment - Brooks didn't block anyone , shifted to the other side of the line away from the pressure.

On the other sack , Newton & Tate both missed assignments - Newton took the inside guy , Tate didn't block anyone tho his assignment should have been the inside guy and Newton the widest defender.

There were numerous other blown blocking assignments and other instances of guys getting beat - Particularly Newton.


Doesn't matter who the QB is when mistakes like that are made by the linemen ...
