    Bennett drops easy pick. (Probably would've been pick 6)
    Sage throws dumb INT into double coverage on 3rd and 1 in the redzone. (Run the ball we have two plays for 1 freaking yard!)
    Matt Schaub is a softie.

    Am I missing anything?

    Our "franchise" left tackle can't play a whole game and when he does he gets destroyed.

    Reeves still sucks.

    At least you're sticking with this user name instead of your "RosenfelsismyQB" name.

    I am not one to ***** about refs but I want to know who get the most penalties called against an a opponent or I should say least.

    First hit to the knee was okay....2nd one could have been a penalty. He dove right at the legs.

    I'm not going to argue that the hits on Schaub weren't questionable, nor would I argue that Tennessee's DL is as pure as the driven snow, however...

    The problem with the Texans today was the OL. I couldn't pinpoint which interior linemen were getting owned every play, but the DL's simply humiliated our guys today. If I were Myers, Briesel, or Pitts I would be embarrassed to show my face around town this week. In addition Brown had his worst game of the season against Allen. We can complain about Allen or Haynesworth's late hits all we want, but we need to get to the point where they aren't there to make the late hit anyway. Especially when our entire offensive line philosophy is built around questionably legal blocks, we can't necessarily resort to complaining that the other guy's linemen are cheaters.

    We have an explosive offense when we aren't going against elite DL's (and I would qualify both TEN and MIN as having elite defensive lines -- arguably the best in football). Until our OL can take them on as well, we will be exposed against teams that build around the line.

    Schaub got hit in the knees twice, and tried to gut it out and was pulled by the coach, that doesn't make him soft.

    Kubiak should have pulled Matt out right after he was hobbling around. 1. he was a liability, proven by that pick which was Leach touchdown waiting. 2. He could have been hurt even further and miss more time. Matt is the starter in my eyes for sure, but once he was hurt there is no need to risk further injury, the drop off to Sage is not that bad in that situation.

    Next. 3rd and 1 in the redzone, run the ball, if you don't get it, kick the FG it would have been a 4 point game at the time. Another coaching mistake IMO, along with not challenging the "1st down" didn't exist.

    We're still soft up the middle on both the offensive and defensive lines. O'line play was very poor across the board.

    Fix it coaches. I don't care how, or why, or what you do. It's effing ridiculous losing to teams we generally outplay. Especially redzone turnovers. WTF?!?!?

    O-Line is far from great, they always get handled against good D-Lines.

    Both of our QB's aren't very good.

    The secondary.

    Two redzone TO's.

    Questionable personell moves.

    2nd half Run D. (They were just tired)

    A couple of costly penalties.

    A retarded ref call on that 3rd and short.

    The turnovers all come from one position. Kubiak has been all over those two players, and it's apparent at this point that they are just not capable of protecting the ball under pressure. The only fix is to fire the players in question, and that's obviously not happening.

    Cornerbacks, especially Reeves. They just flat aren't good enough to hold up against fast WRs.

    It is worth noting that Sage was the one that made the 3rd and 1 play call. The communication went out and he had to call a play. That's why the play was such a failure.

    i not knocking bennett he played pretty solid today and i would rather have him in the Faggins

    Sage took a gamble i kinda like it if AJ had caught the ball yall would be praising sage & AJ the way salton was playing anywayz who to say we would even got the 1 yard did u see how many purps win in the box on that play up the middle the way they where playing i dont we would of got it

    deff tho a QB sneak dive up the middle would of been fine there Sage was fresh and we should of let him get dirty on that play

    Shoulda coulda woulda tho

    and yeah your right Matt is a softie

    Hopefully a full NFL conditioning offseason will help fix this.

    Here's the explanation from Da General's game summary in the Chronic.

    So Kubiak & baby Shanahan couldn't get the call into Rosenfels in time? And they let the Rosencopter make the call on a key 3rd & 1? Another case of Kubiak's indecisions that costs wins.
