    You need to watch NFL Playbook, they broke down Foster's big runs off the Zone Stretch, & Mario's dominance.

    I saw on Total Access this morning, Marshall Faulk was downright GIDDY
    about the Texans demolishing the Colts on Sunday. All of the Texans fans
    in the media are starting to "come out of the closet."

    that was pretty freaking sweet. That is how you win football games. Dominance and determination in the trenches by the OL, a FB blowing it up at the point of attack, and a RB with great vision who follows his blocks and/or knows when to cut back. Just great game plan and execution.

    That was such a satisfying victory by the Texans ...thank you

    I'm not so much about the media attention, I was in it for the breakdown of the ZBS.

    One of our posters was upset because he thought Kubiak & Dennison showed everyone all our tricks, and all our run plays in week 1. But most of those runs were the same thing, only differences were we either stretch right or left, & which hole Vonta & Arian took.

    & when your running back is making good decisions in the backfield, he's hard to stop, even though you know what's coming.

    Thank you TK. We all saw it and it's been discussed among the talking heads and more. Everyone in the stadium and in their recliners knew what was coming, and they couldn't stop it!

    I've heard Eric Winston state over the last couple years that "when run
    right
    ", this offense is impossible to stop. The key then becomes
    execution. When the Texans are "on" between their ears, then no one
    can stop them.

    Anyone see Mike Mayock act like he was a fan of the Mario Williams pick?

    When you see it broken down like that, it just illustrates how beautiful this offensive scheme is.

    The thing that stood out to me the most when watching the plays being broken down is how good Arian Foster is. His vision and ability to cut are top notch. Dude is definitely the real deal.

    On some of those runs the Colts D-line got good penetration and had things under control, but Foster would make a cut and find a seam or make a guy miss to burst through for good yardage...

    I came away from that even more impressed with Arian.

    The O-line did a really good job, but that wasn't all them. Arian elevated their play as much as they elevated his.

    On a lot of those runs, I think lesser RB's wouldn't have gotten the yards he did.

    nowhere near as often obviously, but many of those holes were there last year as well and slaton just couldnt find them. foster appears to have the right combination of vision, patience, and burst required to be successful in the system and take advantage the shifting lanes of our ZBS. slaton's obviously a homerun threat, but he doesnt have the patience or decision making to be consistant as an every down back in the system.

    what i really liked against the colts is that we didnt often see linemen overextending into the second and third levels until they'd successfully passed off their initial assignment. that was a peeve of mine the last couple of seasons, especially with myers - he'd blast into the second level before our guard could get engaged which usually resulted in DT's getting penetration. it's still happening as evidenced in the playbook reviews, but he's getting better at staying within his gap until it's time to release to seal the linebacker.

    the play at 3:45 on playbook was almost perfect IMO. C and LG drove the nose tackle until leach had occupied the safety and LG could release to seal the linebacker. RG held space against the DT to open a cutback lane (though he should've located the persuit LB instead of hunting the safety). TE and RT cut the backside persuit. beautiful.

    Yeah, I didn't notice at full speed, but when they broke it down, some of those cuts were sick.

    Very impressive indeed.
