Default Inexcusable to not get two plays at the end

Once you see things breaking down, throw the damn ball out to someone's feet and save 2 seconds to get another play.

That was such a huge blunder. Reminds me of the guy about ten years ago that kept running through the middle of the field and let time run out on the clock instead of getting down and stopping the clock.

Just a foolish waste of 7 seconds for a 7th grader, much less an NFL qb.

Default Re: Inexcusable to not get two plays at the end

agreed...wasnt sure why the play call wasnt for a quick hitter to ensure we got two plays. And my god, schaub is the slowest most unathletic QB in the NFL and a giant WUSS. He limps and carries on every single time he gets hit. He is the same size as Big Ben but he plays like somone much smaller.

Default Re: Inexcusable to not get two plays at the end

YOu guys are grasping at straws here. Guys can't get open that easily all of the time. We didn't have enough time to easily just have two plays. We had enough time to let one play develop to execute. There was like 6 seconds on the clock. Sure it might have been possible, but very unlikely and extremely hard to plan for when guys had to run down the field in a hurry style offense to spike the ball. The play we had ended up giving the room for Schaub to run for a TD, but he just didn't do it and he screwed up. It happens. We don't have Tom Brady back there.

7 seconds is more than enough time to run 2 plays from the 4 yard line. First play run a slant into the endzone. If it's not open throw it over his head out of bounds. At most you lose 5 seconds but I doubt it would be that much.

Exactly. Thank you. This is football 101. Both Kubiak and Schaub should have had this in mind. It's not really complicated, even Dan Fouts was expecting two plays.

I think it was 7 seconds. I think you look for a quick hitter and if it's not there, *then* you throw it out the back of the end zone with (probably) 2-3 seconds left and then you can try a slower-developing play.

That wouldn't allow the time to go through a progression to find a second or third receiver, but that's fine. If your primary target isn't open, you immediately throw it away and have time for another play.

No one was suggesting that someone could (or would) easily "get open" in 3-4 seconds. But run the play, and if it's not there, immediately throw it out the back of the end zone and get another shot at running a play.

That's all possible and all, but when you're running down the field to spike the ball, you're somewhat in panic mode to get at least one play. It's not always that simple to do every little thing right to where you can get two plays fairly easily. With the scenarios you're suggesting that first play would have had to have been designed perfectly and executed perfectly timing wise if it didn't connect to get to that next play. It's just not always that simple.

i disagree. that close to the endzone, you either hit your hot route or you throw it out of the endzone ... a 3-4 second play at most. if it doesnt work, you still have one more to try to score.

He was running down to down the ball and then he had 40 seconds to get a play into his helmet. You really think that you play for a one play, winner take all with 7 seconds from the 4 yard line?

Absolutely atrocious misplay there to only end up getting the one play out of 7 seconds.
You don't have to time it just right.
It doesn't take but 3 seconds for a play from the 4 yard line. Just run a back shoulder fade to Walter or something and then i that doesn't work you double your chances of scoring.
Would much rather take two chances of scoring than one.

One of the biggest oops/blunders a qb has made in years. Up there with Orlovsky running out of the back of the endzone.

Tommy Kelly hit the nail on the head.
Ol boy choked.

yes even Kubiak said we had 2 shots, and that Schaub should have thrown it away, but it is what it is.

I wonder how much of Schaubs "stop drop and roll" routine is coached and how much is him not liking contact. Regardless, I think that "clutch" article passed along by McLame got thoroughly blown up today. Schaub looked a lot more like David Carr than Aaron Rodgers. He just doesn't appear to have "it".

A definite decision to run or a good pump fake would've reulted in a touchdown. Schaub panicked and drove home the fact that the Texans need a new clutch. One would think that with McNair's money we could afford an automatic.

regardless of how much money Mcnair has we have to worry about salary cap, and we are close.

True, and even if it took 5-6 seconds, that would have been okay too. You only need 1 second on the clock to run that 2nd play
