    On in about an hour.

    Kubiak better say something like: "I should have called more running plays when Foster was getting seven yards a pop. because the Colts obviously couldn't stop it. I tried to get too fancy with the pass plays and it bit us in the rear end, guys. That was a pathetic performance and it won't happen again this season."

    But who am I kidding, it's Kubiak.

    I hope someone asks him about Mario's tirade on the sidelines.

    Go back to the game stats, look at the YPC for the Texans. YES the Colts did stop a run, just like Kareem Jackson did defend a pass...do you think the Colts go "Welp, Kareem played that pretty well. Let's not throw to his side anymore."

    Also once again, no one is talking about in the 3rd. But that's what happens when you don't establish the run, now the only thing you can do is pass...against two of the better DEs and pass rush in the NFL. Good job Coach.

    Here are Foster's 8 first half runs:

    5 yards
    9 yards
    4 yards
    8 yards
    4 yards
    2 yards
    33 yards
    no gain

    There is no excuse for not running more in the first half last night.

    The whole you don't run the ball when your behind thing is the most ridiculous piece of garbage thinking in the history of football.

    What you effectively do is make yourself one dimensional and give the defense a free ride to tee off on you and forget about playing a balanced responsible defence.

    We average more per run attempt than pass attempt so we are moving down the field quicker and it takes no longer to set up after a run than it does for a completed pass. Unless your relying on incompletions to stop the clock, which is a bad idea, especially when Schaub is throwing 3-4 yard passes all the time.

    The only time to forget the run is in the 4th quarter down by more than a score and even then I would still run the draw play plenty because prevent defences get carved up by the draw play.

    Him not running the ball enough in the 1st half is what helped put us in that hole. Freeney and Mathis were just pinning their ears back and blasting up field in full pass rush mode. Kubiak countered by not chipping or doubling them and having Matt drop back to throw while getting hit time and time again

    I'm hoping that somebody asks him specifically about the 3rd and 2 then the subsequent 4th and 2 that we did not convert due to moronic playcalling.

    They did stop some of our running plays but they failed to stop many more.

    Also it's important to note that you don't find yourself down 27-7 in the third quarter nearly as often when you RUN THE DAMN BALL earlier in the game.

    Particularly when you're playing against a defense that can't stop you and will wear down quickly if you hammer them steadily with the run. The Colts are made to run all over. There's no excuse for not doing it.

    JM: "Gary, how do you feel about the loss?"

    GK: "Obviously it's not good. We gotta get better and better do it quickly. A very good San Diego team is coming to town in 5 days."

    yada yada yada, heh.
    (Will have a sloppy recap after it's over)

    Ah, but you forget one thing!

    All he has to say is this: 'Well, we saw some things there that indicated we could use that pass play and get the yards. Maybe even break it for a touchdown and then that puts us closer to making the comeback. It didn't work there, but is has worked in other games this year."

    The guy is smooth. He's going to have a standard reply for every conceivable question he is asked. He's gotten very good at the press conference thing. He's created his own alternate universe the past few years, and he's busy taking a hike through the forest of his world while everyone else wonders why he is in his underwear on a busy sidewalk in town.

    Don't tell Kubiak otherwise. He doesn't like that, and he won't take it from anybody. He knows what he's doing, so just play along already.

    And if you don't ask Kubiak softball questions, you get shunned by the Texans' organization. People are afraid to ask the hard questions here. Sucks.
