Default Re: And How Many Points Did The Texans Score in the Second Half?

Yes, it does. It reminds me of how the offense only played for only one half in most of the games last year.

But, they won. So I figure I'll let it go. We got the Steelers, Saints and Ravens in 3 of our next five games. We'll know more then.

Default Re: And How Many Points Did The Texans Score in the Second Half?

Had they only led 21-0 and hung on to win 21-17, it might have bothered me. But unlike previous Texans games where Kubes calls off the dogs and loses all the momentum, I felt this game was more or less out of reach by the time I noticed the dogs were being called off.

As I'd mentioned in another thread, what concerns about the tendency of Kubiak to let up, to take the boot off the throat of the opponents and not go for the kill, is that once the Texans lose momentum in a game they had been dominating, they have trouble "turning it on" again if the game gets closer and they need to regain that momentum they lost.

This game was never close enough for me to worry about losing it. But it does concern me that we may see more of the same from Kubiak teams in games that are a bit closer, where letting up too soon could cost them the game. I think we've seen a few games like that and those are the losses that hurt the most.

"Fire Kubiak" if they win 48-7 and a top starter gets hurt, right?

There is a MAJOR issue in this fan base.

Thanks for saving me the time of posting this exact message - verbatim.

Sadly, these same people will try and tell you every team's fans are like this, when in fact, they are not.

If there's one thing that's bad business in the NFL, it's running up the score against a division opponent. That's bad juju. I don't know why people are concerned with this so much.

Does this deserve to be a new thread? Really? You couldn't say this in any other plethora of threads going on?

I'm just tired of seeing this trend of posting new threads so everyone can see you make your point (singular). But hey, maybe that's just me.

Carry on.

Nope, doesn't bother me at all.

If the game was EVER close, then yes... i'd be concerned. But it wasn't! Texans played the 2nd half correctly to WIN the game.

It would have been nice to run the ball even though they knew it was coming... but we were down to our 3rd string RB who was scared to fumble again.

Default Re: And How Many Points Did The Texans Score in the Second Half?

It's classic Kubiak.

Unlike our first half sputters last season, this wasn't blatant incompetence but designed conservatism. Kubiak lets off with a big lead. We know this. Anyone who watches this team could predict little to no scoring in the second half. It's how we roll.

If anything concerns me in the second half, it was the turnovers.

You lose. He left the top starters in the whole game. At least Schaub and Johnson should have sat out the last 14 minutes. "Fire Kubiak" if we go another season with an offense that can only score in one half of a game. (Of course sitting on a 34 point lead is better than the usual not quite being able to dig out of a 28 point hole.)

And how many points did the Texans score in the first half? And the Colts?

It wasn't exactly crunch-time for the Texans offense in the 2nd half, add to it the dumbed down approach...

If the plan was to call off the dogs, then the entire first team should have come off the field and been replaced with second teamers.

The first team should have been just as methodical and unstoppable in the second half. But they weren't.

And why is that? If it's because they relaxed, that's unacceptable. They shouldn't relax for a single play while they're on the field.

If the team is going to pick only one half to play offense, I'd rather it be the first half.

Literally made no sense. It was 34-0.

I didn't lose. Texans won. I know it hurt to see the Texans win today man.

If we are holding on to the ball I don't have a problem but Tate coughed it up and Schaub threw his bi-annual pick to Brackett in the middle. That's what upsets me.
