Default Texans 1st offensive play?

Set scenario of where Texans will be on field and what is your call for first play. Mine would be fake a hand off to Slaton between LT & LG, Schaub bootlegs to right and fakes a reverse to Jacoby Jones and then he delivers a pass to Walters as AJ and Davis pull DBs deep. Ok, tear it apart.

I want to see a very aggressive plan of attack against Steelers. I do not think we can win by "hoping to hang on to ball" and grind it out. We need quick surgical strikes through the air and work the TEs Breuner and OD with some plays to slot. I also believe our kicker will be a huge factor.

7 yd out to O.D. He eludes the first defender and gains 46 yds because Pittsburgh blitzed their safeties.
Chris Taylor earned half his game check when he picked up Polomalu on the blitz.

Default Re: Texans 1st offensive play?

I think it's a pass to Andre Johnson on a post pattern that picks up about 14 yards. It's either that or a Hail Mary......my dream wasn't fully vivid to me this morning.

Default Re: Texans 1st offensive play?

I decided to take a little break and go back and check each game. Each play listed is per game. 1-16

1. Pass short to AJ for 5 yds

2. Pass short to Leach for no gain

3. Pass short to Green for 2 yds

4. Dayne up the gut for 2 yds

5. Deep pass to Walter incomplete

6. Schaub scrambles for 6 yds

7. Pass short to Jones for a loss of 1

8. Pass short to Jones for 5 yds

9. Rosenfels scramble for 14 yds

10. Pass short to Leach for 2 yds

11. Schaub around end for 7 yds

12. Dayne runs for 5 yds

13. Pass short to AJ for 7yds

14. Pass short to Walker for 2 yds

15. Pass short to AJ for 18 yds

16. Pass short to AJ for 17 yds

Sooo....I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it'll be a short pass. I suppose a short pass to AJ for 5 yds.

Nice work Hou-Tex, rep your way. On a side note, that's a little disturbing that we aren't more aggressive on the first play of the game to set the tempo. We seem pretty predictable by going off of those results.
