Texans….Where Are You?

Written by: Chance Bond @Chanceb007 of http://www.football4footballheads.com

As you read this know that it is a flawed attempt to explain Monday Night Football‘s continuing Texan’s struggles. The logic I use will come from a source that are not my own. The logic I use to intelligently develop my nonsense  isn’t available for me today. “I am not me”. I’ll say it again “I am not me”. Texans Fans now say it “I am not me” That makes as much sense as anything else I have heard today.

Some of the mistakes the Houston Texans made were early in the game. Brandon Harris’ holding penalty on third down and six yards to go continued a Patriot’s scoring drive. It would have been nice if Kareem Jackson feel on the fumble of  Stevan Ridley instead of trying to pick it up and run with it. I will say up to this point , one of those  things would have happened, if not both. That was the Patriots opening drive that was extended by a Texans mistake, not a Patriot’s flawless execution. The Texans next possession didn’t look horrible either. Going 60 yards in seven plays in just over four minutes. Texans make that score and it’s a tie game.

The “Strand of Luck” Texans fans have held onto since the Jaguars game. Yeah it broke!  The beautiful palace that we lived in, shattered. It came down hard. Glass and broken hearts. The rest of the Monday Night Football game was blurry.

As I sat there, not speaking. I wondered if it was just me? Did it seem like there were situations the Texans could have or should have gotten out of?  Wonder if  Wade was telling himself “I’m not letting this squirrel of an offensive coordinator dictate my defensive scheme”? Josh McDaniels is just the kind of guy to gloat too.The Texans seemed to expect  the talent would win. Making an adjustment was not in the defensive design scheme. They just didn’t seem up to the task, they were all just “right there”.  I was beginning to think Head Coach Gary Kubiak didn’t want to put anything on film that teams could game plan and study for.

Are the Texans being exposed for using a man to man coverage philosophy? Aaron Rodgers and now Tom Brady seemed to use the Blitz to their advantage. Identifying and then exploiting the hot read. How does a guy come off the street and score on a 67 yard touchdown reception. How does legit threat wide receivers end up uncovered. If the Texans can’t get to the quarterback we lose. If  “he’s just right there” is acceptable we lose. The Texans have been exposed…twice. Offense was the same thing. Andre was single covered. Why Rick Dennison didn’t  just throw the ball to Andre all day I don’t know. The Patriots kept eight sometimes nine in the box.  Houston would never do anything to improve it. I’ve seen this team turn it on like jet rockets. They couldn’t do it. Kevin Walters was like a plaque. Schaub’s interception he was throwing to Walters. Both of the fourth downs we went for were to Walters. Hell the opening play of the game was a Kevin Walter’s penalty. We will clean our wounds and exercise the Kevin Walters demon. The national media is going to tell us how bad the Texans are, “they were exposed” Texans “don’t have the mental toughness” lack some of the “intangible aspect”  to make it in the playoffs. I don’t know? The last time the Texans got their asses kicked, they won six in a row. Let’s do the math. Three regular season games left. Two playoff…. you get where I’m going with this.We will be fine We Are Texans.

Texans, Patriots Even MatchUp?

20121206-023555.jpg

The Houston Texans reminded Bud Adams of his mistake…again. I’d go into the stats of the game, but I’m not sure what that proves. I’d rather focus my attention on the Patriots. The Texans have beaten three Division leaders this season. Denver, Baltimore, and Chicago. The team will play its fourth Division leader Monday night. The New England Patriots represent what the Texans want…sustained success. The Patriots don’t resemble who the Texans are…a better team.

Texans Win…Convincing Enough?

ManningTXWritten by : Chance Bond

The Texans went into Soldier Field and bet the Bears. Some are saying the Texans out Beared the Bears!!Really?………Really? How about the Texans just effed the Bears up? Punched them in the mouth and stole their lunch money…out Beared the Bears. That’s just an old-fashioned whoop’n!

On a wet, rainy, chilly, and slick Sunday Night Football game. Offensively the Texans ran the ball 35 times for 127 yards. Arian Foster carried the ball 29 times for 102 yards. 15 for 91 yards in the first half. Matt Schaub threw for 94 yards one touchdown and two interceptions. Lead the time of possessions, and converted more first downs. The Bulls On Parade held Chicago to 115 yards rushing, but no back had more than 39 yards.

Texans bet the Bears with a stout defensive line, and a secondary that is beginning to rival Seattles! The Texans MVP’s of the game are Danniel Manning with him seemly mocking Tillman’s “ball punch” move and forcing a fumble of TE Kellen Davis on Chicago’s first play of the game. Manning would intercept a Jay Cutler pass later in the first quarter also, while covering Kellen Davis again. Glover Quinn forces a Michael Bush fumble ,than has the awareness to recover the ball on the Bears second possession. Kareem Jackson, jumped a route of  Brandon Marshall’s,  with an interception that was Chicago’s 4th turnover of the half. Jonathan Joseph had the assignment of covering Marshall all day long, holding him out of the end zone!

The Bears turned the ball over on their first three possessions of the game. Next two offensive possessions were three and outs. After that offensive series ended with the Jackson interception, the final drive of the first half ended with time expiring. The Bears had 25 plays for 35 yards, and two first downs. The second half began with Jay Cutler remaining in the locker room, and Jason Campbell starting. The longest drive of the evening the Bears could put together? An eight play forty yard drive that produced the only points scored all night. The ones that are saying it’s not a convincing enough win without Jay Cutler. I guess will seen when the rings are sized?

Texans “Off Schedule” Against Packers

Written by : Chance Bond

The Houston Texans had scored on their first possession in four of their first five games. In those games the Texans lead wire to wire. The only game they were behind in was Denver, when they were down by five at one point. By coincidence that is the only game the Texans hadn’t scored on the opening drive. Elvis Dumerville sacked Matt Schaub for a safety on the games first play. That gave Denver two points and the ball. They would add another three going up by five without the Texans even playing offense. That would change quickly. The Texans would score a touchdown on their next three possessions. Eighty-nine yards in five plays, ninety yards in fourteen plays, and fifty-seven yards in two plays. Putting the team back on schedule, playing with a lead. That all changed Sunday night at Reliant.
