Default Where is our offense

Is it just me or did the play calling the second half suck. it seemed as if our offensive cord. was scared to throw the ball. the second half we had so many three and outs. If our offense plays like that again i dont see us winning to many more games. we need to score our 30 points a game not 20 points( a saftey and a punt for a touchdown gave us an extra 9). This game was alot closer than it seemed. We did what we usually do in the second half, stop throwing to Andre and try to run 20 times. In my opinon Schaub should be throwing at least 30 times a game with our run game still a lil iffy. Our defensive looked amazing but not to burst the bubble it was the raiders...i hope they come out with the same fight next week but i think it is gonna be a shootout between Schaub and Warner

We were up by 23 points a few minutes into the 3rd. We only had 5 pass attempts because we were killing the clock. I dont like prevent offenses, but when you're playing the raiders, it seemed to work fine

Yeah, we very obviously packed it in after the Jacoby return.

Im very fine with letting Moats take all the hits instead of our QB/WRs while we run down the clock on a sorry team like the Raiders.

Pssst. What caused us to lose to the Jags was that our defense could not get off of the field on 3rd downs.

Our offense played well and very good in those games, they were great and are the main reason we beat the Titans and they aren't the reason why we lost to the Jags...The D was, but our offense put us in a position still to win that game it was just BS and a turnover at the goal line that ended it!...

With a 23 point lead and your D actually dominating, why throw a pass?

While I think the Texans have a potent offense already, it's not quite the Peytonapolis Colts (yet).

Against the Titans, the offense did just enough in the clutch. It was an open shootout yet a tight game. Sometimes you have to give credit to the other side.

Against the Jags, it was the Texans' defense that ultimately lost the game. NFL football games are not won, or shouldn't be, by always expecting your offense to go 95% scoring on all its drives, whatever half. Those drives allowed by the D were inexcusable.

The Texans offense did move well on their last drive against Jax and was about to score until...(remember that the Colts had a bit of a tough time scoring against that same Jags D in Week 1, Indy's D actually won the game on 4th down stands).

The Raiders have a good defense and like the previous posters stated, once Jacoby took that rock home, Houston was in let-Moats-take-the-hits-mode. It was simply saving wear and tear on the skill players for next week considering we all knew the Raiders were not coming back with their inept offense.

I think our is mostly offense is fine but does have room for improvement in the second half; I don't think we need to ask "where" it is as if there's something fundamentally malfunctioning about it.

Sometimes I get the feeling we over-think our play-calling. We need to simplify things this week and throw fades to Andre in the red zone. Is that so hard to do? 3 fades to Andre every red zone trip.

In the post game Kubiak was quite clear that he is not happy with the running game and was going to keep running the ball to figure out where the issue is. I believe he even said he now had 40 something plays to look at and find out whats wrong. Its not near a fun to watch but if running the ball in the second half helps work things out for rest of the season I can handle the boredom.

A couple of thoughts on this: first, the only way a team with JaMarcus Russell at QB was going to overcome that deficit was with a flurry of turnovers. No need to take chances. Plus, the Raider defense is pretty good. They are incredibly strong on the corners which largely negated the 15-25 yard passes that are our bread and butter.

As for the Jacksonville game, we only had the ball four times in the second half. Two of those possessions were ended by sacks (and a costly penalty thrown in). One was a FG on a long drive and the other was the fumble on the goalline.

Great so we got some reps at running back. I'd rather see this team take the opportunity for once to step on an opponent's throat when they have the chance.

I'll take a quote that KT or Herv used(I think). We need to start destroying opponents love for the game.
