Default Perspective on the loss

Can you give me some?

In my mind right now, this is the second worse loss in Texans history.

The worst being the loss to the Browns that meant our 7-8 team finished 7-9 instead of 8-8 and our first not losing season, in what I want to say was 2005.

Was it this bad or am I still feeling overly emotional?

Overly emotional. It's entirely possible that this game will have no effect of the seeding. The Texans needed help to get a bye, as it was. They are currently the #3 seed, and would have likely been the #3 seed had they won the game. I'm more upset with the trend to rein in Yates than the actual result. How is that helping the team prepare for the playoffs?

Thanks.

Not sure we had much option with the way the OLine was getting pwned.

Does our offense even feature max protect?

It's likely that T.J. is going to find himself in a lot of bad situations when we get to the play-offs. Most of us are fearing that he won't perform well in those situations.

Maybe we're putting Tj in a lot of bad situations to prepare him for the play-offs.

I think yates and the offensive line reined theirselfs in more than anything. pass plays were called but Yates did'nt have much time. When he did have time he chose to dump the ball off rather than throw down field. 15 secs left in the game and he throws a 3 yard pass to the running back, he was just scared to make something happen.

it just sucked man we played like garbage. I mean we are now the #3seed in the arc the young men over at Kirby have done well this yr but it looks like injuries have finally caught up to us. I think we are done this yr and finish 10-7 with a loss in the playoffs. Not much to do about that but get healthy. We have need ridiculously injured this yr. I would say you throw the snake in there and see if he has maybe or 3more games left in the tank otherwise we done. That is not a slight on TJ, but the kid is nit getting it done.

Everything was great when they got Yates outside the pocket. Why change that? The 3 step drops didn't help either, with the safties sitting down on the run and the short routes. Just a bad game plan by the offensive coaches. And not adjusting the game plan was even worse.

There were a couple of three step drops where Tj was drilled on.

3 step drops. One, he pulled the ball back down. But the other two...... brutally bad play by Winston... How you going to give up the holding penalty & the sack?

He missed several reads last night .... Im not so sure its Kubiak and Dennsion reining him in as it is Yates being a rookie 5th round pick and playing like it.

Converting only 1 of 10 on 3rd down is a telling statistic. Even on some of his completions he missed guy's down the field for what could have been larger gains. He had opportunities to make plays and didnt deliver.

They havent scored more than 20 points since Schaub went down after averaging ~26ish prior


If you would have told me that Foster would run for 158 on 23 carries and they lose .... I'd have had a hard time believing it.

If last game was "Preparing" him for the playoffs then that would be like me preparing my kids for the real world by making them watch the wizard of ozz all the time.

What else is telling is that the Texans only dropped back to pass on 5 of those 3rd downs. And one of those was a 3rd and 1. Laying all of the missed 3rd down conversions at Yates' feet is just inaccurate.

This is unspinnable. Kubiak went ultra-conservative. And the Texans lost. Maybe they would have still lost had they let Yates open it up a bit? I'm talking maybe 6-7 more passes, a couple of those downfield. Maybe they would have won? We'll never know. What we are pretty sure about is that a gameplan like this that can't beat the hapless Colts won't beat a playoff team.

Default Re: Perspective on the loss

There's no other way to describe it other than it was a bad loss. Whether we were 10 - 4 or .500 , we lost to a team that has managed 1 win before us. The team outgained us and held the ball much longer than us.

Rather than going for the jugular and the win our last possession with a touchdown, we played for running down the clock and a field goal and it bit us in the ass.

Good teams take care of business. I'm proud of the Texans but I continue to have questions about Kubiak. It would be nice before next season if we'd pick up a WR that can take pressure off of AJ and be there if AJ goes down. It has shown to be a real problem.

Hopefully we'll straighten things against the Titans and carry it on to the playoffs, but I'm not holding my breath.

Default Re: Perspective on the loss

My own take on the "worst loss" probably has to put the VY game at the top. Dagger through the heart stuff right there.

Then I'd have to put the 8 Bironas FG game in second. Another Titans game.

Not sure after that...the losing just becomes a blur...

However, I'd have to say that this is the biggest disappointment after a loss. I was a fool and believed in this team. I thought a 10 win division winner would stomp a 1 win Colts team. I never even doubted it. I should've known better...

In the end, probably won't matter. We pretty much gave up the bye week by losing last week, so meh. And it's not as though we can fall from the 3 seed to the 4 seed.

In the grand scheme of things, this is easily one of the losses that we can most easily afford.

Think about it this way if you're still being emotional: would you rather have won this week 16 game, or our first playoff game? Or for that matter, our NEXT game in Indy (superbowl hint hint)?

Yeah, we werent' good yesterday, but oh well. I'd rather suck now than in the playoffs.

Charlie Palilo said we could fall to the fourth seed if we lose to the Titans and the Broncos win out. I have not checked the math on it, so take it fwiw.

Nearly every pass play has multiple routes. At least one of those routes is downfield to move the safeties back. You've watched plenty of football so I know you know this. Yates deciding not to take a chance and go deep more often is totally his decision. Neither Kubiak nor Dennison have an X-Box controller that dictates where Yates decides to go with the pass. That's on Yates. Simply put, his rookieness was showing.

Now if you want to say that the kid didn't have time to let a deep route fully develop because Winston was getting owned... I'm all in on that.

Someone posted in an early Yates thread his draft worthiness breakdown. One of the criticisms was that Yates is streaky. If he get's hot, he has the arm to put up big numbers. But if things go bad early, he sometimes can't shake it off and bounce back. I wish I could find that post....
