Default Our offensive line is pathetic

The Titans have definitely watched a lot of film on our guys. Either that or they just took a step back to games 1-4.

What is absolutely stunning is that some of you actually believe that quick 2 or 3 step drops mean an improvement in offensive line play.

(But whoever said that football message board posters were the quickest cats in the kennel?)

Let's not forget about our defense.

If you want realistics, our defense lost all three games for us. Granted, our offense isn't really that good but I bet to venture our offense is a better than our defense.

When you play a team twice each season, you have to throw some wrinkles in there. Tennessee made the most of their wrinkles.

it's amazing, 2 step drops can make even the Texans' line look less pathetic for a couple weeks. dont worry though, we're one step closer to drafting reggie bush. he can single handedly replace our line. "bush snaps it to bush, great protection from the bush line, bush 7 takes a step drop, sees bush deep, diving one handed grab by bush ... TOUCHDOWN BUSH!". he can probably punt and kick fg's too!

sorry, frustrated.

One of the 610 guys said on the post game show that the last games all the defenses will just put a max rush on David. I thought the offense other than Davis had a very poor game.

Everyone knows whats wrong and what needs to be done.
Now it is time to "JUST DO IT!"

How's 'bout giving them a phone call and let them know. Apparently, they just don't get it.

I personally blame the late game collapse during the Rams and Ravens games on Fangio, not the players. In both games the players themselves played quite well in my opinion and the playcalling had been decent enough most of the game, both of those it would have also been nice for the offense to maintain drives and finish some off (especially against the Ravens). The defense is not at fault in today's game either, I blame in order 1) special teams, 2) the officials, 3) offense for not being able to score more on the Titans defense and not looking more at Andre with a rookie guarding him, 4) the defense.

That said, our OLine is not very good. We need to draft at least 2 OLinemen this year, and ones that can both pass and run block.

What the Texans need are some players who have IQ's greater than their age. I don't think I've ever seen a professional team make so many mental errors in my life. Kinda makes you wonder if they weren't in the line for mashed potatoes when the Lord was handing out brains.

A couple of things in today's Chronicle.

1) Quarterback Kerry Collins has been knocked down an NFL-high 136 times, an average of 11.3 a game. Aaron Brooks (132) is second followed by Eli Manning (129), David Carr (117) and Tom Brady (111).

Why are Eli Manning and Tom Brady playing on winning teams likely going to the playoffs and we are the scum of the league?

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...n/3516625.html

2)Also in today's print copy, we waived Victor Riley. The guy starts virtually every game of the year then we decide he can't even make it on the team?

are those teams changing their whole playbook to keep thier qb upright? our whole gameplan is focused on not letting carr get hit and he still leads the league in sacks and is in the top 5 in knockdowns.

Until things change (which won't happen this year), every team is going to blitz the line every third down. Ever precarious situation. Every turn-of-the-game play. Blitz. Blitz. Blitz. The Texans need to protect Carr somehow. Whether that means 2-step drops or pulling him from the game, I don't care. I'm looking at it from the standpoint that I believe McNair wants Carr around next year. Carr is begging for a concussion or something. The Texans need to protect the investment. It's painful to watch that kid put so much out on the field and get knocked around like a pinball.
