Halftime is when you see how good of a coach you are. If you can't adjust and make a strong 3rd quarter showing then yes- you have been outcoached.
I agree to a point. Another contributing factor is the Texans are a young team and it's difficult for a coaching staff to make halftime adjustments with a young team.
I loved what Steve Tasker, CBS Commentator for Sunday's game, said about our offense, in particular when we were still in the game trying to get a TD to close to a 6 point deficit.
He said something to the effect of... "This team is trying to move the ball left and right, not up and down." He pointed out that all routes are always running across the field on short 5-6 yard routes, nothing that many people haven't already seen, but the entire passing game is just about underneath left and right passing toward the sidelines.
Naturally, this translates into a very difficult time moving the ball inside the red zone as the field becomes more compact/congested. Safeties can move up closer on those crossing routes without fear of getting burnt deep.
I am encouraged by our ability to move the ball consistently to the opponents 30 yard line, but very discouraged about being to convert those drives into points.
The running game is pathetic and a big reason why we can't convert late in the drive. Gado is good for depth, but Lundy is not explosive. I want an explosive speed back, and don't care if Kubiak can change any RB into a 1,000 yard rusher. Give me a stud RB and lets start moving the ball. We obviously don't have the line to utilize any old RB, and it will take time for Spencer and Winston to mature and replace aging veterans, in that time, I want a RB that can run.
true, I hope we go defense in first round and possibly pick a RB in 2nd or 3rd.
