Default Not Taking the Kick

When I saw that the Tits were going for it on 4th and 3 and not kicking the field goal the first thought that jumped into my head was that it was a total lack of respect on Fischers part that he thought they would have no problem with eith getting the first of going ahead with the TD.

How's THAT for a run on sentence.

Seriously though, thst move totally pissed me off and I can't wait for the Texans to consistantly kick their asses. My only hope is that we can get that Super Bowl win before they do.

Default Re: Not Taking the Kick

my 1st thought was that they thought if they gave us the ball back with that much time left and they are only up by 2, we would be able to run down the field on them.

i saw it more as they were afraid of our offense

.. and they went to Petey's side (didn't they?). I was hoping they wouldn't put a day full of field goals on us like last time. Then saw they were going for it... silly inbreds, tricks are for your aunt-mom-sisters.

The only reason I can think is that he wanted to get the first down that way that forced the Texans to use up their remaining 2 timeouts and then try for the FG from a shorter distance.

Even that reason seems lame though seeing as the what the consequences could and would be.

Default Re: Not Taking the Kick

I was too nervous to watch the fourth down play or the subsequent drive by the Texans live and just watched a short time ago.

After the Slaton run when the Fat Man got hurt, Keith Bullock had his helmet off following Haynesworth as he limped to the sideline. Bullock yelled loudly in the general direction of Fisher "that was bullshit!"

I guess he didn't like the call, either.

Default Re: Not Taking the Kick

Don't really like watching NBC game coverage as Colinsworth is a tool but they are saying, per Fisher, that he winds in Reliant were making long field goals difficult in pregame. Said he would go for it on long big kicks.

Not sure if it is true but if so makes sense.

Me too. Their style is get a lead and play D. they completely went against this by trying to throw to one of their subpar receivers.

I wonder if Bironas pulled something or otherwise got hurt on a previous field goal or kick-off.

Heard Fisher say that too...that he should have elected to take the wind in the 4th but he didn't and that against the wind, the kick was out of range.

My initial thought was that they were going to draw the penalty...then the snap and my jaw dropped. My thought then was that he Fisher figured if we did stop them, his D would surely get keep us from getting a first down and they would get the ball back again.

that's a bizarre thought to have. i guess any time a coach goes for it on 4th it's because they have a "lack of respect" for the other team's defense.

Wind?
What wind?
I was AT the game. Even when it drizzled a bit in the 2nd half, the rain came straight down.
Maybe that's something unique to that end of Reliant. There was no wind on our end of the stadium.

I thought maybe his kicker pulled a groin or something. Some of his kickoffs were kinda short.

Fisher was obviously scared to let the clutch king Matt Schaub have another chance with the ball.

I felt it swirling all day in the Bull Pen. It really seemed to be a ~10mph breeze out of the North end. Kris Brown's kickoffs were really short to the North end, whereas he was kicking 5 yds deep into the endzone the other way. That was the only reasoning I could come up with for Fisher going for it in that situation.

..I kept thinking that we might need that breeze for a game-winner in the 4th quarter as well.

Default Re: Not Taking the Kick

I don't know where all the rest of you guys sit, but in section 512 there was a lot of wind coming in from the north end throughout most of the game. Did anyone notice the goalpost flags? I watched both guys in pregame, and kicks were just dying in mad-air on our end.

When Fisher decided to go for it on 4th everyone in my section was pretty sure that it was because of the wind. Also after Tennessee chose to receive, the Texans chose ends so that it would work out that way.
