Default Re: The fluke big play

No offense to the original post, but the Texans are a long way from being a very good team. There is no excuse for the way they simply rolled over in the second half. This team needs a consistent fire in its belly and play all 60 minutes, balls out, imo.

4 in one game isn't a fluke it's a pattern of exploited weaknesses.

I don't really blame Petey for getting burnt though. Corners get burnt from time to time, especially in man coverage with an aggressive defense (which we seem to be). It happens. Just not a good play call by the D-Coordinator. You've got arguably their only pass catching threat line up against Petey...in man coverage? I don't know about that.

It's when Petey gets beat on easy routes and misses tackles that I get mad. This time he just got beat by a receiver with elite size and speed. Not much you can put on Petey there. We know his skill set and that skill set didn't correlate with the play calling.

Simple as that IMO.



Didn't see this. I obviously agree.
Ding ding exactly correct, I was sitting on that side of the field and I noticed the Cj took two steps and beat Petey. CJ is huge and a phenomenal athelete, However Petey should have at least bumped him, or even laid him on the ground with tin the first 5 yds.

Note: Did Faggins get benched after that play? I remember seeing him on the sideline on the next defensive series with Bennett in. Knew this guy was going to break into his craptastic self again.
I did.... Teams look for that guy. Both Smith and Faggins needs to be gone. Petey needs to stop waiving at two blondes sitting on sideline and focus on the field.( I would wave at them too but focus)

Steale got a great down field block. And we don't have the speed at safety, or LB for that matter with Ryans nursing an ankle, to hope for help after the horse is out of the gate.

Screen play was no fluke. It was a perfectly executed screen pass. Give the devil his due.
Yea, I thought that play was mostly Diles' fault. Amazing how one small decision to go inside rather than outside the offensive lineman can cost you a touchdown, but that's pretty much what I saw on that play. Of course, as Vinny said, he didn't get much help from the secondary.
