Default The painful past and "goin' for it" against the Colts

painful retrospective, yet inspiring read about your beloved Texans #43:


excerpt-
[quote]Running backs with 3,000 career rushing yards in the SEC don’t grow on trees. Tate had a distinguished career at Auburn, ranking fifth on the school’s all-time rushing list. He does an excellent job of protecting the ball, and more vitally, has proven to be very effective in short-yardage situations. Nobody in the league is going to question Tate’s tenacity—he rushed for over 1,300 yards his senior year.

why is it never mentioned about a RB's ability to block? even more so in a pass pro system like Kubiak/Shanahan run. so Auburn didn't have much of a passing attack, I watched Tate closely & he seemed always engaged blocking somebody, physical in all aspects of the position, do people actually watch film? This has to have been a real plus for him to being selected by the Texans as high as he did yet nobody ever mentions this. curious isn't it?

I think we talked about it before the draft. One of the reasons I was high on him was that he had a bit more experience pass blocking that the other top prospects.

You're right about that because Foster didn't even get to play until he absolutely had to and most of the reason for it is because he had issues with pass pro.
