Default Your "ask the coaches" opportunity

What would your questions to Texans coaches be? This is not involving owner/admin/GM or medical staff or players. For this scenario they must answer. Please..no one ask about what foods they like; we'd have 30 pages on that.

What was the cause for the drop in output from the TE position , Graham had 49 catches in 2013 & the entire group had 32 in 2014.

Which players on our roster have any experience or aptitude playing center?

Follow up - Does our LS specialist ever get practice as a regular center?

This one's easy - no.

Weeks is 245 lbs and was just like he is now at Baylor, a designated long snapper.

(I think this is a superb thread.) Question for head coach: Why not hand the ball to the FB more often and take some pressure off Foster?

Because basically nobody in the NFL does it and it doesn't work for shit. Division winners as a sample:

NE - 3 att. 1.7 ypc
Pittsburgh - 2 att. 0 ypc
Indy - 0 att.
Broncos - 6 att. 3.7 ypc
Dallas - 0 att.
Green Bay - 24 att. 3.5 ypc
Carolina - 37 att. 2.1 ypc
Seattle - 1 att. 2 ypc

Green Bay most "successful" at it and they gave up a full ypc to their regular RBs.

I'd like to ask O'Brien why he waited until week 11 to start Mallett? Maybe after he answered Ryan's question.

If we're going to be asking questions like this, though the OP said not about the players, then I'd ask what are his thoughts on Posey... why is he on the roster.

Odds of 4th round or later QBs becoming productive starters are slimer than slim. Did we draft Tom Savage with that in mind, or did we believe he has what it takes to beat the odds?

I read my OP again and feel I need to clarify; ask coaches about anything but questions are to them only not to the players/GM/admin or GM so as not to sidetrack as we often do.

Ok as a clarification qurstion, do you intend this thread to be all hypothetical questions with no discussion or not?
