    I coulda swore I saw that ball bounce off the ground, but the replays were kinda inconclusive. Does anybody have pictures of that play or a better look at it to know for sure?

    Ya, probably so but I sure would've liked to seen the other angle instead of the one with the defenders back to the camera.

    It looked clean to me. AJ should have had it and it was one of those lucky breaks that always seem to happen to the other team when they play us. Ofcourse, it helps when you're in the right position and you make the plays when you are given the opportunity......unlike our team. :bat:

    Why do other teams get that kind of play. We never get that to happen to us.

    False. It's happened for the Texans this year. Not as often as we like, though.

    We do. Our guy just doesn't come down with the ball. Remember Jacoby Jones in the endzone when the defensive back tipped the ball right to him? He looked like he was surprised the ball was there. That leads me to believe that he wouldn't have caught it even if it hadn't been tipped. Jacoby is backsliding badly this year.

    It doesn't matter how fast he is if he can't catch the damn ball.

    But we get those breaks, Our players just have their heads too far up their asses to see them coming and take advantage of them.

    And yet everyone here is mewling loudly about the playcalling in the fourth quarter.

    Wake up, peeps! Arian Foster touched the ball over 30 times yesterday and the Texans were driving for the go-ahead score. Jacoby Jones blew an easy score on that deflection and it cost his team dearly. More importantly, Andre Johnson let a relatively easy reception slide through his mitts and bounce off his knee, up in the air, and into the diving arms of the defensive back who AJ had a clear angle on.

    I'm sick of hearing this silliness about Foster not getting enough touches yesterday while everyone ignores a plain truth. We were in perfect position to win that game. The play call worked, our best player was wide freakin open in the middle of the field with one man to beat (and his momentum taking him out of position to make the tackle), and Andre flat out blew it.

    If he makes that catch, he scores a TD.

    To repeat: Arian Foster touched the ball 31 times for 197 yards and two TDs. We didn't lose because the coach supposedly got cute with his plays, we lost because OUR BEST PLAYER FAILED!!!!

    Just admit it. The team was in position to take the lead with ninety seconds or so on the clock and the players failed to execute. I love AJ as much as the next guy, but he cannot get a pass here while everyone is busy piling on Gary Kubiak.

    Sure, but he is probably the most important player on the team and he is expected to make that play. It was not a difficult play. He can be human on a dropped pass early in the game when there's plenty of game left; he needs to be a pro in that situation, and he almost always is. My point isn't to bash AJ but to simply point out the incongruity of the incessant, misplaced bitching about the offensive playcalling when that same playcalling got Arian Foster 31 touches and put the offense in scoring position at winning time.

    I am not saying there's no room for criticism of the coaching performance yesterday (i.e. the hurry up on 4th down and some of the worst tackling I've ever seen), I'm asking for some perspective here. Some of you are still stuck on Monday Night Football. We got Arian involved and he killed it. Unfortunately, the receivers and secondary sucked goat balls.

    It was a clean pick. Besides, the ball can hit the ground as long as it's controlled prior to and throughout the catch, which is exactly what Oliver did. His right hand was tightly gripped around the ball after he caught it.

    ^^^ This. Inexcusable! There is no reason Troy Nolan should not be on the field. Kubiak and his loyalties are what is going to get the guy canned. The fact that he continues to play some of these guys because "They practice well" or are good Christian soldier is extremely frustrating. This is football not the church Christmas play.

    IT WAS THE FREAKING CHARGERS!!! THE 3-5 freaking Chargers at that...

    Should have NEEEEEVER came down to a last minute drive for the win. It should have been an ass stomping by the Texans from the word "GO" but once again, they let no named, undrafted players look like pro bowlers and beat their asses....


    simply pathetic....

    Exactly. It was almost a sure TD. AJ knew it, too (he looked like he wanted to leave Reliant immediately after that). And Schaub knew it, also (with how pissed he looked, I'm sure he did).
