That's been the strategy for 5 years
And it's worked for 3 of those 5?
So CJ Anderson comes from Golden Corral and run the blood out the ball, but he doesn't fit Obrien and Gaine system once Miller got hurt? Oh yeah, Blue is still on the roster
probably helped him that Rams RBs average something absurd like 3 yards before first contact.
Exactly. I can't remember the last time a color commentator took out his "yellow pen" and broke down one of the Texans' offensive plays because of the imaginativeness (not a word, but you get what I mean) behind the play.
Maddening isn't it.
So I did some research....Longest TD drive of the season was the 97 yd TD run by Miller. But we won't count that, obviously.
Not counting that 1 play drive, the longest SCORING drive the Texans had this year was a nine play, 84 yard drive ending in a FG. Against the Bills.
There were two, 15 play TD drives. One was 79 yds, the other 75 yards. Both against the Colts, one in each game.
The LONGEST TD drive was 82 yards (10 plays). Also against the Colts, 2nd game.
I didn't do a lot of research on this but, the Pats have also had pretty damn good OC's since 1998. Of course I am excluding the one year OB was there. They have had McDaniels, Weis, and Zampese since that time. 3 SB wins with Weis, and 2 with McDaniels.
Depends on your definition of "worked".
I think why people are getting impatient, though, is that during the first 4 years... that has been the strategy because we didn't have a QB. Fans feel like BOB has a QB now, so why still the same strategy? I know the answer to this, it's the OL. So what's maddening is that it seems like it's always going to be something holding BOB's offense back.
Ok, at any point in their career have Alfred Blue or Foreman played better than CJ Anderson? When Miller was hurt, the backups were garbage. The Chiefs cut the 3rd leading rusher, put in Williams and doesn't miss a beat. Yet, they did nothing in the offseason to improve the rb room.
While we're at it, we can talk about how much better Peterson was than any of our backs except Miller. Even with Miller he had more rush yds and more TDs. He was sitting at home even while Foreman was getting eating Cheetos and Blue was being Blue
After realizing that mistake you'd have thunk they would have jumped all over Cj Anderson. Not that he's all that, but solely because Blue is not.
Which years did it work?
I dont see the positive in foreman
Foreman is just another bust in a long list of Texan busts.
Every year they won division
Unfortunate that he "busted" something fer sure.
Foeman possibly had the talent to succeed, maybe he still does.
Posts from our own resident Doctor inferred that Foreman did not seem too interested in putting in the work to properly rehab himself. Unless my comprehension failed me?
Heart can sometimes overcome lack of talent but a lack of heart most often spells failure .
Maybe this year had a waking up effect on Foreman. Next training camp will tell.
Texans could add some incentive by bringing in a promising rookie.
Bwhahaha man give the youngster time to bounce back before dooming him a freaking bust.
A bust wow
there's no objective evidence that not getting AP was recognized as a 'mistake'.
You just kind of proved my point. The Chiefs cut an all pro RB, and their run game barely missed a beat. Williams looks like a good back and all, but he is not as talented as Hunt. Kind of like how the Steelers run game didn't miss a beat going from Bell to Conner or Conner to Samuels. They have very good lines to run behind, we have a **** line. Anderson is a good back, and yes he is better than Alfred Blue, but he would have looked like crap here too, because our line couldn't open up holes outside of a short stretch in the season. Also does anyone know that the Rams were the only team to reach out to CJ? Is it possible that the Texans or other teams might have reached out, but after spending the majority of the season in a bad situation, he waited it out for the right situation? If I was his agent I would have told him to avoid going to a place like Houston, he wasn't going to get anything done here behind this line to help his value, more than likely running behind our line would have hurt his value.
