    Both have been sucking it up lately.

    Schaub has no experience in the playoffs, he has folded in the primetime games this year and with #1 seed/bye on the line. What confidence does he have? Especially with the right side of theOline?

    Kubiak might not be on the hot seat because of the playoffs last year, the Division title this year and the playoffs in 12= but a 1 and done could jeapordize a long tenure.

    We all can't have elite QBs like Joe Flacco.

    Right now, I think it's a collective confidence issue. Like others have said, I think it starts at the top.

    But I don't have a problem with the play calling. I've got more of a problem with dropped balls (KDub, Arian, OD, Andre, LeStar, Keyshawn, Andre...... everybody but Posey had a first down that they dropped), and poorly thrown balls.

    You're just reiterating what the entire board has been talking about for the last 4 weeks, though. But to answer your question, Fiddler hit the nail on the head.

    I'm no Kubiak apologist as his play calling and stubborness drives me up the wall at times...but...I have a hard time always blaming kubiak. He may be calling the correct pass plays for the defense against us. When schaub throws to a guy in tripple coverage I don't immediately blame kubiak. When schaub throws to a guy 2 yards beyond the line of scrimmage on 3rd and 14, I don't immediately blame kubiak. When schaub doesn't see or feel the blitz everyone else knows is comming and option to a hot route, I dont immediately blame kubiak.

    Sorry, you don't have a point.
    You don't watch the Texans games close enough to have a real clue.
    A majority of Texans fans don't have time to rewatch and crucify each play like some of us and they don't see the whole thing, either.

    Posey dropped a ball, too.
    It was not going to be a first down, but it would have helped the down and distance.

    cushings play on field with his fire in the locker room is a huge boost for this team.

    You have no idea how much time I have. The majority of fans of any team don't have time to watch the game live either- they sit in sports bar running their mouths about everything but the game. Same at the houses where peple have a party every sunday; everything but the game.

    I've watched every Texans game this season; the playcalling in the last 4 games is different than it was at the beginning of the season.

    The 'point' was about the Texans; the othr guy tried to make it about Flacco.

    I think the pc has changed over the course of the season. Drops are part of the game but you are correct; there have been more and more of them lately.

    I'm so glad someone had the guts to make a point about this. Nobody's been talking about this at all.

    How is the play calling different as a whole?

    The Texans have a different game plan each week, so whatever point you're trying to make is moot anyway.

    Texans have more problems than the two you mentioned.

    Special Teams haven't been so special and the defense has had their problems as well.

    To wit:
    The Colts took the ball with 9:46 left in the 4th quarter. The Texans defense couldn't get off the field and the Texans offense never saw the ball again as Luck took three kneel downs to run out the clock.

    All of those issues coupled with the fact that the Bengals are a better team than the one the Texans saw last year and it could make for a disasterous Saturday........... errrrrrr season.

    Or we can say that your name sake (AJ) dropped an easy TD pass and that he had a mis-communication with the QB that caused the INT.

    He played a part in the loss, too, ya' know.
