    Why is it that after every pass completion, our safetys/corners/linebackers are 10-15 feet away from the reciever? Every freaking pass the colts threw, their wrs were wide open and our secondary or linebackers had to run to tackle them. Why is it that our defense dosent actually cover the recievers, get a hadn in the face, etc. Instead of letting them catch the ball without coverage and then tackling?


    Please help me i am a frustrated texans fan

    I have a second question, did any of the corners look for the ball before the reciever had it in his hands?

    I'd like to know why the term tackle for a loss is foreign to our team.

    Even if we bottle up the RB at the LOS the play ends as a gain of 2 or 3.

    Our defense is simply atrocious

    That might be a bit generous.

    We lack playmakers on defense, we play a prevent D the whole way and hope for the best

    Forget "Gulf Coast Offense" or whatever nickname the board was joking around about on threads long long time ago

    wish I could photoshop Richard Smith in this and the Red Sea defense

    Why is Feagins covering Marvin Harrison one on one. He couldn't cover Harrison one on one if Harrison was on one leg and Feagins had him in handcuffs.

    im so sick of this passive defense. take a chance. only time we stoped them was at the end of the game when we brought the house. force some mistakes dont just set and wait. Smith doesn't have the personel to get pressure without bringing extra help but he wont do it. scarred to leave the db alone. who cares we are dying anyway, pressure the qb and they wouldn't be alone for long.

    i saw a couple of times when we blitzed we showed manning, before the snap, and let him change the play. just a suggestion, when you blitz manning try not to let him know its coming. he's pretty decent at changing a play and beating a defense when he knows where your coming from.

    drives me freaking crazy. it wasnt like they were throwing the ball down field. most of manning's deep balls were incomplete. we just let him throw 10yard stop's all day long. he's payton freaking manning, you think he's gonna mess that up. make him throw the ball down field. knock his butt on the ground, late his his arse, something. sure he might still beat us, but atleast dont die like a coward and let him throw 10 and 15 yard completions all day long.

    i remember a time i used to enjoy watching football. this team sux. there im done.

    The only thing that slowed the Colts offense down yesterday was the Colts. If not for all those drops and penalties in the 1st half, they woulda scored 50.

    I thought the Colts had a great game plan. If a player dropped a pass they'd run the same play again and get it right the next play. Or they'd try another play and get it right the first time. The freaking geniuses.

    Part of playing off the receivers is because we have no pass rush. We didn't get burned deep because we effectively played a prevent defense like others have said. We've got to get more physical on the line and that won't happen with the current crew we have. Keep in mind that we are not the only team that the Colts have done this to. We can rip Faggins if we want but the fact is, if we had a decent pass rush, our D-backs would be looking a whole lot better. Peyton Manning will pick everyone apart if he's given the time.

    The Texans have a defense ? .... Is that what Dick Smith calls that conglomeration of garbage he sends out there to let the other team score ? I call the Texans defense down right offensive.

    It also appeared that Bennett, Reeves, Dunta and everyone else the Texans threw out there couldn't cover Harrison, Wayne, Addai or Clark. Why is that? No pass rush. Also, Peyton Manning has made a career out of making D-backs look bad.
