There was a time not too long ago that the majority of us here on this board thought these Texans (minus Demeco, plus Kareem) could beat any team, any time, any where. What's changed? There was a faction here who already thought the man was an itiot. I don't think he's gotten any dumbor.... I know we are giving up 400 yards a game & 24 points. I know that's not conducive to winning. However, I don't think we've played our best football yet. I don't know what they are waiting on, but I know they are running out of time. Overall, the San Diego game was a fail. I know that. But there are a few things we can look at, that can (I think should) give us hope going forward. The #1 offense in the league had 9 possessions against us. 5 of the 9 ended with no points. 2 of them were turnovers (a fumble we forced & an INT we forced... Quinn forced another fumble, but they recovered it). The other 4 possessions, we allowed TDs. We've got to work on that, no question about it. On the flip-side, we took the leagues #1 defense & scored on them 5 out of 10 possessions. Two touchdowns, three field goals.... (we turned it over 3 times, twice on downs, 1 INT). Need to work on turning those FGs to TDs.... That #1 defense is also now the #2 defense (The New York Giants are #1, a team we had trouble getting first downs against earlier in the season). We took the team with the #1 offense & the #1 defense (playing our offense actually dropped their ranking) into the 4th Qtr with a lead (albeit only 2 points). Most importantly, think about this. We are the #1 Red Zone offense. Wasn't that our biggest complaint last year, we moved the ball like nobody's business between the 20s, but sputter in the Red Zone. What if we had to trade off some of that offense, to get that Red Zone performance, & have spent the last 9 weeks trying to get back our ability to move the ball, without sacrificing our Red Zone performance? It's just an idea. What if we can get last year's performance between the 20s with this years performance in the Red Zone.... & as an added bonus, we get last years defense as well. To me, that's what it looks like we're seeing. If that is the case... who can't we beat? Why can't we run the table?
