well if the D line could get a little pressure !!! u expect the CB to cover the recievers all day ? This was a total team FAILED effort ! Yuo win as a team and lose as a team so i think it should be blamed on the team and not on certain individuals ! Every aspect of the game was played bad

Unlike the first two games where it can be pointed to the fumbles as the cause for the losses, this one was pretty much a team effort. Carr was NOT sharp (numbers came a lot in garbage time), the WR were cold, the o-line was elsewhere and the defense was a sieve particularly deep (run wasn't too bad). ST had a couple of good moments though except for the penalties. Overall the team just didn't show up.

Talking about the penalties, I really think they need to give the refs more options as far as the amount of yardage on the penalties. That roughing call where Plummer was nudged out of bounds could have been a five yarder (or a no call, IMO) and that pass interference could have been a 15 yarder (or a no call). I'm tired of seeing 40 yd., game breaking (in many cases) penalties on interference calls that are questionable or somewhat questionable. Most of the interference being committed is not worth anywhere near the yardage it's penalized for.

The funny thing is that Plummer could have taken that run upfield for a huge gain, and everyone would have talked about how the Defense wasnt paying attention. But the D makes sure he goes out of bounds, and we get a flag? WTF mate.

If we have a strong, even if unsuccessful effort in Indy this weekend, the Denver game was just an aberration. If we have another effort in Indy
like yesterday, Houston - we have a problem.

You hit it on the head. Even very good team have bad games; see Eagles this week or pats last week, but the number of good games need to outwieght the bad one conciderably.

One thing that worries me is the fact that now we are relying on Carr's arm in the last several games. Our running game going into these colder months had better start picking up, or we will be seeing more of the these Denver type games from here on out.

Good points imo! That gives the refs some middle ground. If there is a bomb, there should be a middle area, rather them forcing a call or no call. The same goes for roughing the passer. Both of those calls were weak imo. The bottom line is that the league wants to see more scoring. Personally, while I like the scoring, I also know it's football and not ballet. A certain amount of contact has to be tolerated, or the integerity of the game will suffer.

Ibar Harry is out to lunch...

lastly, we just plain did not show up yesterday. Yesterday was one of those snowball games, that start with a couple of small negatives, and just snowball out of control before you turn around. I'll chalk it up to the late start and thin air. I really have a good feeling about Indy. Win or lose, we will give them all they can handle imo.

Touchdowns:
Rushing Texans 2 Broncos 0
Passing Texans 0 Broncos 4

Net Yards Passing 228 225
Comp.-Att. Texans 22-41 Broncos 16-24

***The broncos had 225 passing yards on 16 completions. And 4 went for Touchdowns. Which means poor coverage, and bad tackling.
I think the key stat for this game is missed tackles. Too many to count.

The cold, hard truth is that we got beat by the better team. The Texans are only in their 3rd year of existance and are ahead of schedule. People can always complain about the coaching or the play calling but the real problem on this team is the talent not the coaching.

The fact is the Texans have to play a great, almost flawless game to make the games close and win. where as teams with better talent can have a bad game and still squeek out a win, the Texans cant, not at this stage of their development.They have to play great and win by about 7 points or not play great and have Denver happen to them. Denver had their backs againts the wall and came to play.New England would have been hard pressed to beat them. The Texans are on the right track. We should praise our coaching staff instead of ragging on them after every loss.
