It's a lot easier to make up ground when you see the QB winding up and then when his pass doesn't have a whole lot of zip on it. Luck throws strikes and Schaub throws floaters.
I agree for the most part...just think that too much is made of that particular throw when in reality, it's probably incomplete if demps' ass is playing center field like he should've been..

Probably....

Defense has been underwhelming for a while now too.

I said this since game 1...If the defense didn't have Watt playing like an all time great they'd struggle.

This defense thrives on the pass rush. We don't have the OLB's to make this defense work against good passing teams. We can load up pretty good on the run when we put our mind to it...but man...pass defense is suspect at best...

All four phases (offense, defense, ST, coaches) are in a slump right now. There is plenty of blame to be spread on both coaches and players.

No one aspect is losing these games. It's a collective effort to see a team consistently meltdown like this, and we've seen it in games and seasons before in this city.

Losing Cushing and having very lame seasons by many other defenders have really had a negative impact on this defense and revealed some philosophical deficiencies in Wade's system. He's not the genius we had hoped. Still a good DC when he's got an offense scoring points and the players to run his D, but there is clearly a breakdown in his system and scheme when they give up a 3rd & 23 for a friggin' TD in a "must win" game.

The defense is the best of the 3 phases of the game for the past 6 weeks.

That's not praise for the defense, but rather an indictment of the offense and ST units.

Let's put it this way. If the Texans has played all season like they have in the past 6 weeks, this would be a 5-6 win type team, not a 12 win team. For all practical purposes we have a 6-10 team heading in the playoffs.

I agree completely. I see teams with losing records showing more grit and determination playing week 17 games than our 12-4 Texans showed us yesterday.

If Kubiak can't trust Schaub & Aj in that situation, we've got a problem. At the very least, he should trust Matt to throw it away & punt. Gaining 3 yards on a bull$cht draw isn't going to get you a better punt. Sometimes it makes sense. If you're backed in to your own endzone, it makes sense. But he does that, sometimes) on our own 30 yard line.
It's true that we don't pass often on third and 15 (or longer); we passed only 8 times, with just one deep attempt.

It was a completion for 16 yards to AJ (and a first down) on third and 15, in the first Colts game (0:22 left in the third, from our 26).

From ProFootball Referecence.com Play Finder:

http://www.pro-football-reference.co...order_by=yards.

The Pats did attempt more passes, 14 out of 17 occasions; however, only one of them was a deep attempt, same as us, and it was incompleted.

That was in the fourth quarter of their first game against the Jets, with 4:37 left in the game, on third and 16. Welker was well covered along the left side line, Brady threw it long, with no chance for anybody to get to the ball.

Brady was sacked twice, which only made matter worse for them.

The only conversion was on a run by Woodhead for 19 yards, on third and 17.

How long have you been a fan of the Texans? I ask, because apparently you don't remember Matt Stevens. Demps does not deserve to be on the field for any reason other than 3rd string out of desparation... but Stevens was even worse.
