Default Who Do YOU Blame For this Loss?

I saw the same game as you did. I sit in the end zone in the 500 level and have been there in the same seats from Day 1. But had mixed feelings about this loss since we cannot blame Capers.

When you can't stop Westbrook from running down the middle at the end of the 4th quarter, you deserve to lose. He's great in space, but he's not a between the tackles bruiser, and thats what he looked like at the end of the game.

Our DL was embarassing in pass rush

I put the D-Line because so much of our defensive success this year relies on them.

I am taking option I since it isn't listed: The defense as a whole, the offensine line, and your mother HomeBred.

And before anyone gets all crazy that I am personally attacking HomeBred, his mother was one of the choices to blame the game on.

There is No one person that cost this team the game. It failed on every aspect. Entire Team can be the only answer.

IMO, it falls mostly to the defense as a whole. Not good up front and leaky deep. Probably about 60% on them and 25% on the O-line and the rest just generally spread around.

So far she has 2 votes, LOL....

I told her she needed to do those chunky soup commercials for the Texans...

All is good....

Two players had good games on the Texans.... Carr and Ryans.

The defense gave it up. Holes in coverage, getting beat by Westbrook and Buckhalter in numerous flare/screen plays (except one where Dunta shut it down).

David Carr had success when he played deep. I can't believe I am saying it but he really did well with the deep passes. Kubiak may be onto something here....

Our running game was unsuccessful due to the fact that the Eagles D-line is so strong, especially when they are against the Texans O-line. Five sacks, but I wasn't surprised by that. What surprised me is how well David played. He dogged one sack (I admit it was his fault, he could have avoided it), but three of them were not his fault whatsoever... just the Eagles D-line and a tough blitz.

Ryans shut down many plays. He is the future leader of this Texans defense. I can't wait to see what he can do once we get moving.

All in all.... I really can't say I expected much. The first quarter was a mirage... we played really well for a while. But we had to face the fact that their D-line was just too much for us at current strength.

I was in 634 and from where I sat the whole team stunk. 14 rushing yards for a whole half!?

To top it off I was sitting with a bunch of eagle fans and if the guy in front of me stood up one more time to sing fly eagles fly and spread out his arms like he was an eagle I was going to thump him in the ear.

Weren't we supposed to have a good DL this year? What the hell happened out there today! And it's not like it's Mario Williams that didn't play well either. That whole entire unit got thrashed today. VERY VERY VERY dissappointed with them. Eagles Oline just dominated them.

Richard Smith, I thought he said they were gonna be aggressive and take chances. I didn't see that many blitz packages and considering how great our DL was I was surprised at this. Also I don't think I saw any 3-4 fronts. Nope I don't think I saw it even once. Another thing is I don't know when he called contain or anything, so my thing is why didn't our ends ever get after McNabb. I mean overall I gotta say Smith made alot of rookie DC mistakes and he needs to work on that. I wish he would go through a stretch where he just told the line to pin their ears back and get after it so we could know if it was the play calling or the play on the field.

We just lost to the better team. Are we blinded to the point to feel that other teams should just lose to us because: Kubiak is the new head coach, our front office had the "nads" to draft Mario instead of Reggie to make our team better, better coordinators, and most importantly a 3-1 PRESEASON record?
