Yeah that first challenge was an obvious forward pass ..... the refs called the play an "Interception" ..... how the hell do you intercept a pass that hits the turf ?


That 4th and 1 call with a rookie QB at the helm running the ball down the throat of the leagues second best rush defense was gutsy.

Having Yates NFL game ready ..... was a triumph in itself. Gotta give credit to Kubiak , Dennison and Greg Knapp for a job well done. They devised a gameplan that was just aggressive enough to get the job done while not putting Yates in position to make mistakes.

I believe they called it a fumble because there was no whistle.
And the game stats "credited" Rowdy with a fumble. No INTs are in his stats.

To the DB's credit, he was the only one alert enough to notice that the whistle had not been blown. Even his own teammates had stopped playing. And all of our guys thought the play was over when the ball hit the turf.

Since Garys never been over .500, does this thread jinx him and he once again falls below .500?

Here's my question for the refs:

If his arm wasn't moving forward, why did the ball fly ten yards forward in the direction he wanted to throw it? Don't call it a frickin' fumble just because you're too stupid to blow a whistle.

I've stopped even trying to get my head around that call.

I've just accepted that it's one of the things in this life that I'm totally incapable of understanding.

The playcalling was outstanding.

Didn't try to get too cute but got cute enough to keep atl on their toes.

The design of some of the plays we run is master mind stuff.

The part that really bakes your noodle is that one of the refs actually called it incomplete. They huddled up and got it wrong. Collective stupidity in action.

This is why I usually defend Kubiak. Another reason can be seen in this game where he went for it on 4th down.

To call a run play right there, that's telling that OL & RBs (who had worked their asses off to that point), "I need you."

& they answered the bell.

That, I think, is the most uncharacteristic thing about this team that I have seen. Kubiak has asked them to step up again & again over the last two years & this season, they are answering that call time & time again.

Yeah , he's put them in position to win many many times over the prior two seasons and they have failed .... The difference this season is they are getting it done and the W's are piling up as a result.

I know it was a fumble on the stat sheet .... but the ref on the field after the review said "The play stands as called on the field , an interception" .... Calling it an interception overlooks the fact that the ball hit the ground .... That he termed it as such is the only way I can see them not overturning that call as Yates arm was clearly going forward.

They really screwed the pooch on that call. Just glad that it didnt cost the Texans a W.

The funny part about this to me, is not only did Kubiak call a great game, but Smith, who is usually far more conservative (excluding the 4th down in OT vs the Saints) called the trick play with the Flea Flicker and it cost his team

Matt Ryan should have never thrown the ball to begin with. No one was expecting that pass, not even the intended receiver. The only one who saw that was Kareem (or Allen, don't remember which one).

Makes me very sad that Gary never looked outside of his comfort zone before in finding a DC. Frank Bush being hired while never interviewing a SINGLE ****ING SOUL still bugs me. We could have been close to this a few years Ago. Oh well, go Texans!

I agree with your sentiment, however, Wade is known for very quick defensive turn arounds. Kubiak screwing around and not hiring good defensive coordinators made hiring Wade a must. We all knew Wade would improve the defense, but we couldn't have predicted by how much. The Texans are the best one year turn around job Wade has ever done. Going from last to first in one year is just crazy.
