    well, no kidding. You would have to be blind not to know Brown didn't tip plays but the Texans never worry about correcting this and when I first noticed it Kubiak was unaware when brought to his attention. We've even had fans call in and ask Kubiak about this on his Coaches show but he said he "wasn't aware of it and would have to look at the film". I put this right up with Casserly stating point blank that Carr didn't stare down receivers and if he did, it's just fans babbling about overrated nuances and all QB's stare down wr's.

    Oh niiiiiiiiice. I remember that call in earlier in the year too to 610 on Kubiak's show and sure enough, he did respond like that.

    So, NOBODY on our coaching staff realizes stuff like this - however the Texans' opponents and fans do. (I didn't for the record, but I'm not in the position that's supposed to look for this.)

    Dropping his foot back is part of the script.

    Ok, just another reason to follow through with the firing of this guy imo! And lets quit piddling around about it, get it done today!

    I just got sick to my stomach.

    Tar and feather Kubiak. And run him out on a rail.

    Hey, Matt Schaub: Your golfing buddy just got you hurt. Feel special?

    Sheesh...this is a new low.

    When we discussed this last season, I was wonder the same question I am now?:

    Could someone explain what he is doing differently than what a LT should do when it's a passing down and the LT is almost lined up in the backfield and in a two point stance... In other words, does Brown do something specific to tip a run on a passing down and to tip a pass on a run down?

    If someone can look at the Colts game and the 3rd and 1 call before the half when AJ breaks off his route, I'd like to know if Brown tipped pass on that play.

    Or, on the 3rd and 5 yesterday, when they ran the draw play to Chris Brown, does Brown tip the run there?

    ... after all, tackles set up differently situationally all the time. I'm not arguing, I'm just trying to better understand the accusation and what he does specificly.

    This just goes to show that these coaches aren't rocket scientists.

    Thanks for checking into that call by that fan on your 610 show, coach.

    Looks like Groves checked into it as well.

    The good news is Brown is pretty good even if he is tipping his plays . Just think what he'll be like when he corrects it .

    a year ago Kubiak actually defended the fact that Brown lines up differently when a pass is called when brought up again (I think Cloak called in)...so it's not gonna be addressed I assume.

    I guess that's sneakier than changing tackles completely on pass plays .

    The Smartest Guy in the Room® does not take advice from mere simpletons. The radio did not convey the massive eye roll conducted by The Smartest Guy in the Room® after proletariat fan dishonored his chance to speak with him by bringing up the obvious in a game of complexity.

    Should not ALex Gibbs be responsible for this? I would have thought Matthews would have caught.

    Vinny, could you explain this in more detail? Don't LTs always tip pass plays when they are 3 yards into the backfield and in a two point stance? What does Brown do differently than other LTs?
