Default More Richard Justice drivel

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/6093035.html

Please read, and tell me . . . is this nothing more than a rehash of what you've already read on a football message board, or already listened to on the radio?

Woudn't you expect a little more insight out of a sports columnist of a major newspaper?

And this quote:

Quote:
“It’s on the players,” Pitts said.

Really?

“Yes,” he said. “Coaches don’t play. We play. Turnovers fall in the shoulders of the guys that are out there playing. You can’t put that on the coaches.”
Why is that to be dismissed?

Richard Justice is just telling people what they already know . . . for the day.

And that's exactly what is wrong with him.

So what Pitts is saying is that since the coaches dont play its on the players. Sooo it can never be on the coaches because they dont play?

Pitts is just giving the generic response when blame might be put on the coaches.

It's still on the coaches to put their players in the best possible position to have success.

I didn't like the play calling on that 3rd and 1. You have a QB that's trying to bounce back from one of the (possibly) biggest individual collapses in NFL histroy (come to think of it, that probably was the biggest individual collapse) and instead of running for a 1st down you call a play where he's got to throw the ball into the endzone and it ends up being picked off.

Sage didn't have to make a throw into double coverage. Slaton isn't a great in-between the tackles runner. The Vikes have a great line. Passing on 3rd & 1 means we're going for it on 4th & 1, assuming we don't score or pick up the first down. Sage was torching their secondary the entire drive. He just made a bad decision.

Richard Justice is just telling people what they already know . . . for the day.

And that's exactly what is wrong with him.

The Patented Richard Justice Column-O-Matic:

1. Is it a win or loss? If win, write something AWESOME! If lose, write something VERY SAD! Use lots of hyperbole!!!!! DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT, provide anything to readers that they don't already know. DO speculate wildly and pull things out of your rear end because as everyone knows because he says so, RJ poops flowers.

2. Get quote sheet. Use random quotes so that it doesn't look like it is a total BS piece because you did real journalism by using quotes from players.

3. Write the HAPPY or VERY SAD thing. Be sure to leave LOTS of wiggle room in case things go the other way.

4. Do not include many pesky stats. If pesky stats are included, they are what the Texans PR flacks send you.

5. (Optional step if really steamed). Use the phrase "our little team." (It's a writing crutch he uses to be dismissive when talking about the Texans and Rockets, never the Astros. Really, if you do a Chron.com archive search, you can find him using that phrase a lot. Which is pretty funny given that the smallest Texan player from the little team could smoosh him like a bug if they cared to).

6. Most importantly, and the point of the entire writing exercise....Mail it in.

Really, I have a hard time reading anything he writes about the team. When it isn't wrong, it is completely wishywashy and useless.

He would like the team more if they gossiped with him. Oh, and if they had drafted Vince Young or perhaps Reggie Bush.

No, but I won't discount the article as drivel. I don't want to defend Justice and don't always love everything he writes, but it is unlikely that any sports editorial is going to have a topic that hasn't been discussed (and likely rehashed) on these message boards before it goes to print for the casual fan.

At this point in the season and in his career as the Texans head coach, we will likely see more and more of the same type of articles regarding the same topic. Until Kubaik can prove that he can actually fix these recurring issues, these observations and questions regarding his ability as a head coach will be repeated over and over again.

Now...if Kubes can turn it around and Justice writes the article about how he always knew he would...then I will agree with you.

Actually the coaches did not call that play, Sage did. Apparently, time was running out and he couldn't hear or something and just choose that play on his own. Another example of his poor QB skills. Stupid play call, worse execution.

Wouldn't there be a couple standard plays that would be run here given the situation and the time frame? Maybe I'm over-simplifying it because I have NO idea how coaches call in plays and prepare their teams, but I would think you'd go to a 2-minute drill late in the game and you wouldn't need to spend time calling in plays, that the QBs should know what to do based on situation, time left, what the defense is presenting, down/yardage, etc. Why are the coaches calling in plays? Am I just football stupid?

Hmmm . . I wish I could go back and and dig up his columns 3 years ago when the Texans selected Mario Williams, and compare them to the columns he writes now about he always knew they made the right choice.

There ought to be a law.

In our system, the QB goes to the line with a few plays that he can select from based on what he sees. Sage just chose unwisely.

The only true point I can see is that good coaches and systems can make crap players look great.

Look at the Pattriots defense. Pretty much anyone can get stuck in the secondary and look great.

Kubiak is still having trouble with clock management. If he can’t get the play in on time, he should hire someone who can. This isn’t an issue of talent or focus. It’s the head coach being indecisive.

On Sunday, three of the four offensive linemen were flagged for false starts. Another concentration issue. The Texans’ third and fourth possessions ended with turnovers. So did the second possession of the second half.
*********************************************
Justice is right on with those remarks. The players are playing like their
HC all too often coachs, without focus or decisiveness.
This was a season that he teed-up as a real playoff opportunity for the Texans, and he sliced it badly. Actually he caught the 2 best teams in the division with down years and his team has had the benefit of hardly no key injuries in the first half of the year, yet he ends up 3-5 record to all but eliminate any real shot at postseason action for the Texans in '08.

The problem is that these guys don't get to the line with any urgency when facing a time crunch. They let too much time run off the clock as they meander up there. Peyton would chew someone's ass out over that.

I'm starting to turn into one of those "Kubiak is not the answer" people the more I see the same problems cropping up and a consistent lack of piss and vinegar from this team. The cheapshotting Schaub thread is proof positive that this team lacks the fire to hit someone in the mouth.

last i heard we are one of the least penalized teams in the league. not sure how he can do better with that. im not real sure what he can do to help the turnover situation either. the only place im seeing turnovers is from the qb position and every qb we have turns the ball over. we just picked up some new guy maybe he should start him?

this evaluating every position after every game is just stupid. mcclain gave kube's an F on his report card. what did he do to get an F for that game. i didnt see any horrible mistakes, no stupid decisions. so if somehow we made a play on that last drive and got into the endzone and won in ot mcclain would of gave him and A or B. its just useless. there are so many variables in any game and luck plays a good 50% of any game with two evenly matched teams you have to look at the season as a whole. right now we are 3 and 5 we havent won some games we could have but most people would agree that our team looks better than they did last year. how bout a c- so far. that seems fair.
