John Below is a play by play of the 1st Qtr. I've been upset with the Texans coaching and offense for a long time. However, I wanted to disagree with you about the defense playing well. In the 1st Qtr the bend don't break defense allowed the Bills and Losman close to 90% of the playing time. The defense never stopped the drives and didn't allow our offense to get a start. There were no stops of the other team and that controlled the Texans by keeping them off of the field offensively. No QB is going to be warm when he sits as long as David did nor is he going to get in the game when the OC is calling a run on 1st down most of the game. I honestly believe the defense is broken as much as the offense, but people don't think so because of the lack of scoring. However, when Houston did score the defense immediately gave back the touchdown on the next drive. No, I'm sorry, but nothing is going well. The injury to Mathis I believe was also a negative, because we had no special teams play of any note which I believe the Texans have placed some high hopes for. This is what we have been seeing all along and nobody would allow anybody to question the coaching staff. Its very simple. The Bills fired their head coach and the new one said we have to go out and fix the left side of the Bills line by getting a LT and LG. He did that, so the question is why couldn't Houston do the same. In addition my observations were that the Texans were using the roll out to try to minimize O-line problems, but as soon as the other teams realized that all you need to do is contain Carr from rolling out the offense was over and done with because the O-line could not contain the rush up the middle. That has been happening for sometime. Those kinds of weaknesses are picked up in a hurry. I appreciate your candor and I hope others do, because this is a talented ball club that is being very badly coached and managed. We had 7 offensive plays in the 1st qtr and 1 punt. The 1st series was a 3 and out and the 2nd one ended on an INT on 3rd down. You can not get your rythm with that kind of possession time.
