To add to Timekiller's takes! Houston Texans at 12:51 1-10-HST 32 (12:51) M.Schaub sacked at HST 29 for -3 yards (D.Freeney). 4-man rush. Texans blocked all to the left side to create a log jam in the middle. It was past the 3-sec mark when Schaub pulled the ball back in as he couldn't find Walter open on the left side. He should have been very much aware that Freeney was looping around D. Brown. (He can see it as he looked at Walter.) By the time Freeney got to Schaub, it was past the 4-sec mark. Schaub needs to make his read quicker. He had Moats wide open on the right flat as the hot receiver out of the backfield. Basically, Schaub ran right into the sack. Announcer: "I think Schaub is just holding on to the ball too long... He even told us that when we spoke to him yesterday - can't get caught holding the ball or the Dwight Freeney and Mathis will wreck your game plan." And on the very first offensive play, Schaub did just the opposite of what he said he wanted to do! 2-13-HST 29 (12:20) (Shotgun) M.Schaub pass short left to A.Johnson to HST 30 for 1 yard (D.Freeney, A.Bethea). Quick screen pass to the left. Perhaps Schaub should wait a little longer for D.Brown to get out there to put up a block as well as to draw Freeney in deeper. 3-12-HST 30 (11:40) (Run formation) M.Schaub pass short right to S.Slaton to HST 37 for 7 yards (C.Session). Screen pass to Slaton. Myers couldn't quite get to Session. The Texans set up the screen nicely. Great block by White downfield. Studdard sealed off the back side. Slaton started out too wide. He should have made the cut back to the inside sooner. Could have gain a couple more yards, but still short of the first down anyway. It was too far and the Colts played it quite decently. 4-5-HST 37 (11:07) M.Turk punts 42 yards to IND 21, Center-J.Dreessen, fair catch by T.Rushing. ........... Houston Texans at 6:20, (1st play from scrimmage 6:11) 1-10-HST 28 (6:11) M.Schaub pass deep left intended for A.Johnson INTERCEPTED by J.Powers at HST 46. J.Powers to HST 45 for 1 yard (A.Johnson). With plenty of time, Schaub simply threw into triple coverage and right at Powers' numbers. .............. Houston Texans at 3:57 1-10-HST 36 (3:50) R.Moats left end to HST 36 for no gain (G.Brackett, A.Johnson). They were in position to blow off both Guards in an instance, White more than Studdard. It was by design, they did not allow Myers to latch on a defender. Moats should have followed Leach to the outside. Somewhere inside or outside of Brown. He cut back in the worst place possible, between Studdard and White. 2-10-HST 36 (3:09) J.Jones right end pushed ob at HST 41 for 5 yards (A.Bethea). Handoff to S. Slaton. Faked ZBS run left. Colts showed blitz with 7 and came hard. 85 and 80 can do a better job of blocking. They allowed penetration that forced JJ to go a little deeper on the end-around than he wanted to. Good job by Schaub trying to block on the play side. He didn't engage anybody, but did all you can ask for of a QB blocking the end-around. 3-5-HST 41 (2:38) (Shotgun) PENALTY on HST-C.White, False Start, 5 yards, enforced at HST 41 - No Play. 3-10-HST 36 (2:21) M.Schaub scrambles left guard to HST 38 for 2 yards (J.Powers). Schaub was put in 3rd and 10 situation, which is not the best to be in. But he had more than 3 secs to move out to the left away from pressure. He also had the safety valve Slaton, not that it would matter; we're not going to have the first down that way. (But at least a better chance than Schaub running for it.) The angle didn't show enough whether Schaub had a remote chance to throw for a first down. Optimum, however, Schaub should have rolled out to his left sooner to buy a little more time. The more important thing was that Schaub had one on one situations on his left with AJ and Anderson and he never even looked at those. The Colts showed 7 but only rushed 4. 4-8-HST 38 (1:47) M.Turk punts 42 yards to IND 20, Center-J.Dreessen, fair catch by T.Rushing.
