Default Texans Oline Rank #6

Quote:
6. Houston Texans: Despite putting Baltimore and Miami in the top five (mostly because of personnel and not necessarily execution), I canít harp on this enough: The most important objective in the NFL today is to keep the quarterback clean. Houston ranked eighth in the league last season despite the fact that the running game was mediocre and quarterback Matt Schaubís(notes) mobility was limited because of an ankle injury. Thereís not a household name in the bunch and offensive tackles Duane Brown(notes) and Eric Winston(notes) are both limited physically. Still, they donít let people touch Schaub and the running game could really improve with better running back play.

Its amazing how a smart qb, who can make good decisions, makes an offensive line look good. Anybody care to wager that this very same offensive line would be called one of the worse if WHNSNBM was still under center? Until we get a better push on obvious running plays, I ain't drinking the koolaid.

Actually, I believe the Texans were pretty high in fewest sacks allowed.

Difference is Myers has been a starter while for the most part Studdard has been on the bench. Studdard hasn't been free from harsh criticism on the board as well.

I think it's like CnD pointed out; most people can recognize he does well in space and gets to the second level fine. It's just at those critical moments where we really need a push or him to at least hold the point of attack at center his weaknesses don't show, they are glaring.

Really? Is that all you got? Really?

dude, you got to contribute more than that if you expect anyone to pay attention to you and check out your link. Take a look at how Roc Hoover, Stemp, and others roll.

You ain't got nothing right now.

Offensive line play starts at the center.... While I agree with many of your takes, Myers is weak and I hate to say that because his dad would occasionally post here and seemed like a cool cat.... At the end of the day, Chris was destroyed several times.. Litterally blown up....

So was McKinney. And Flanagan, too.
So is Wade Smith.

Define "several times" like in 5 or 10? And show me the money!

Default Re: Texans Oline Rank #6

And while we're on this subject, let me ask the "pro-Kubiak" thought of being able to go get that one tough yard:
"Why did the Colts hardly ever run up the middle on third and short? And when they do it, it would be against team without great presence at the nose or DT? Some people seem to think that Jeff Saturday is one heck of a center. So why did the Colts choose to do something else?"

Umm, let me guess, some HC & OC think that banging your head agaisnt the wall is not a good idea.

Schaub did one hell of a job getting rid of the ball often times before a would be sack, in fact seemed like he was running for his life alot. numbers just don't work like they do in baseball.

In the last four games of the season, Schaub did a very good job at that.
Before that, it was a give-some, take-some scenario.
Sometimes, MS would run for his life (usually due to pressure from the edges).
Sometimes, he would hold on to the ball too long and hurt the tackles with an unecessary sack allowed.
Sometimes, he did what a good QB should do: either get rid of the ball or get out of there and see if he can make something of it (something Kubiak had mentioned during OTA).
