    Don't you know?

    It's Kubes fault because the defense was like. "Offense isn't going to score any ways!"

    Yeah, that play brings back bad memories of Frank Bush.

    That was a bad moment to be sure, but a couple things:

    1.) The game was lost before that, abd everyone knew it. Hell, the defense and Wade Phillips probably knew they weren't going to get enough help.

    2.) We've all watched Kubiak turtle up in that exact situation for so long that when the Colts made a play, the first person I was pissed at, just instinctively, was Kubiak. That play was not his fault, at all. I think it's just that he's built a reputation that enough of us don't like that when we see something like that, it pisses us off at the wrong person.

    But your point is well taken.

    That was all Demps again, good thing we released Troy Nolan to play that scrub.

    Why was Demps even the only safety back?

    I've said it in another thread and i'll say it again. If the Texans were to somehow grab a ballhawking safety they'll have a elite defense once again.

    Manning is good and Quinn is a great SS...but I think we really need guys who can cover back there and then make QBs pay for even thinking about throwing that deep ball.

    D-Line was manhandled & left the DBs hanging out to dry.

    It's time for Wade to come up with something different. That Colts O-Line is nothing to write home about.

    Oh, yeah. That one terrible play. Which I'm sure had nothing to do with Kubiak having an entire game that he called poorly, but I digress. What of the defense's absent-mindedness on that play? The lack of effort? That says nothing of Kubiak? That's on Wade? Lol.

    Over here.
    Wade is not getting it done like last year, but our D could still destroy our O right now.

    The right side of the O-line is crap.

    Schaub is crap too, without perfect protection, which he ain't gettin'.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand....once again, I am made to feel that at least some of these games are RIGGED, not by the players, but by the referees. From the start, it's like you can tell that the announcers know it's rigged and who's going to win, too. Today's RIGGED story-line was all about Pogano (spelling?....whatever).

    At this point i wouldn't be surprised if the offense showed up in the playoffs and wade's defense spit the bit...they've not been nearly as dominant as they were early on in the season

    Awful coverage and an amazing throw Schaub wishes he could make.

    How about all the offsides calls?

    That is on Wade too and the defensive players but they ALWAYS get a pass and no one says a damn thing when the offense was one of the best in the NFL for a lot of Kubes years here.

    NO NO NO, we blame kubiak because all of our 3rd and over 12 yards will be screens or draws. We had something to play for today the colts had nothing, and what did we see besides the same old scared to lose instead playing to win kubiak.

    Why do people say things like this? I don't think anyone blamed that on Kubiak, but if you could point out a single post where that was the case, that would be nice. Yeah, the defense gave up that big play, but they had been playing well all game until then. The offense has done it's usual dance since the NE game, and really before that. The dagger was already in the Texans' heart before the big play. It was just twisted then.

    I agree. Wade's defense has been suspect and that was a back breaking play.

    the downside of playing a one gap system with almost exclusively man coverage. Works pretty well when you have a good edge rush and big time linebackers. At the moment we have no edge-rush and linebackers that struggle in man coverage.
