They aren't checkboxes, just pick one please. All of the above falls under the 'other' category.

I went with other because I felt like the biggest problem was a combination of the two choices "Lundy/Gado could not run the ball" and "The offensive line played poorly".

Despite all the raging going on in here I can't pin this one completely on the QB, the line, or any one player/group. I thought the D played a good game until the second half when they seemed to just crater. I can't say a blame them since the offense wasn't giving them any help.

I could say it was play-calling, but seeing as this is a continuing thing with our team I have to think it has more to do with scheme than simply play calling. I mean things like the fullback's effectiveness. Cook hasn't been a big factor, matter of fact I would like to see Owens get a shot back there because when he motions out he remains a receiving threat. When Cook motions out there other teams don't really need to adjust because he simply isn't a threat to them. Matter of fact they're probably licking their chops when he get's out there. Also I'm still not seeing the ZBS utilized that often alot of our plays are coming off draws and up the middle. Also there has to be something wrong with our game planning, because our receivers are just not getting open.

I'm not voting, but I would go with the offensive line. I'm no expert, but it doesn't seem fair to judge the QB or the backs the way the line is performing. The RBs have nowhere to go and Carr doesn't have any time. It makes the offense suffer as a whole, which in turn makes the defense suffer because they stay on the field longer with bad field position.

I don't think this team is ever going to be competitive until the line is addressed, and until then I don't know what to think of Carr and the rest of the team.

scored less points than them?


made another QB look HOF material?

seriously..

not being able to run the ball hurt and when we had the plays to make , we didn't ..

some key plays on scoring drives
AJ dropped a pass that potentially could have given us 3 points before halftime.. D-rob had 2 hands on an interseption and dropped it, gave the Jets 3 points. Faggins weak P.I. call led to a field goal.

not playing the blame game just stating, but good teams make the plays

Cool Re: Why did the Texans lose today?

I'm tired of Carr throwing to the line of scrimmage OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER.

Hell, if our OL and/or WR's suck that bad, we should just quit.

If it's Carr's fault for checking down, then we need a new QB.

Also pathetic at the end of the game. Why run 4 WR sets if we're going to throw the ball 1 yard?!?!

Truly, truly pathetic and made me angry watching the game. Nothing like throwing 1-2 yards inside the down markers!
