Anyone know if he was sick today or something? Aside from the last drive this looked looks one of his worst games

I agree, looked slow and indecisive at times as well as taking bad angles and gave up lots of YAC.

I didnt pay close attention but i'm sure teams are gameplanning or at least recognizing where he is.  Im sure hes blocked, and chipped more that earlier in year.  And maybe he was a spy on Watson , limiting his range.  I'll have to look closer the "2nd time around".

I think he was a little tired.  Our offense didn’t sustain many drives in the 2nd half and we played a lot of bend don’t break.

If he was a spy, he got juked badly there too, not one of his better games.

I was hoping for more out of him towards the end of the game. He whiffed bad on the dump down to Miller. Bad angles on some. The deflection was a great play, would have loved to see him pick it and take it to the house, but that's me being greedy. Not many have the range to make the play he did. Not a bad game from Darius. Great game from the defense overall. Great game.

I noticed he didn't play with his usual manic mentality.  Maybe inexperience or because he was a texans fan. :funny:

Thats the Cato June mentality, yes he got the tackle but it was after a 15 yard gain. :)

What?  How about giving some credit to the Texans? They didn't get the division crown by being a bad team.

Sometimes you have to give credit to the other guy.

 

Not one of his best games does not equal a bad game.

The Texans did not have 13 plays of 10 yards+, let alone 15 yards.

Yeah I noticed it was a bad game too.  Maybe playoff jitters or sick or something.  Doubtful this continues past this week though, I expect him to be a big factor in the KC game.  He needs to be - it's going to be rough if he isn't.

All I was saying is there were 4 or 5 plays were he took AWFUL angles and gave up a lot of yards where they should have been stopped. 

 

And stating tackles do not necessarily equal a great play.  Feel free to read more into my sarcastic post if you want.

Your use of sarcasm is poor and makes an improper implication.

Where did I say they did?  All I was saying is a tackle in the stat sheet is misleading.

13 tackles is really not all that misleading. It's a % ton. The Texans had very few big plays so his tackles were not all "Cato June" tackles.

 

Did he miss a few plays? Yes. Does that make his game a bad one? No.

At this point, I'm just going to say there is no having a discussion with you.  It's fine if you want to view him through rose colored glasses but all you have to do is go re-watch the game to see multiple times he took bad angles and gave up a lot of yard as a result. 

 

I at no point ever said he was bad on every play of the game.  I am sorry you don't understand that a tackle doesn't necessarily equal a great defensive stop on that play and by using Cato June (who I believe led the league in tackles one year) as an example was apparently a personal shot at your love of Darius Leonard. 

 

Also I don't think I ever said anything about a bad game.  If I would have said anything, it would have been similar to the the thread creator and been 'one of his worst games'.  Which would have been comparative to his play during the season, which means if he had 15 good to great games this season that lead to him being selected to the all pro team,  it could still be a good game just not his best.

 

I am going to be done with this discussion and head off and celebrate the win.

 

good night and godspeed

Combo of him being tired and where they had him playing. He was playing deeper than normal and was sitting as the spy or second spy on Watson most of the game. It altered between him and Geathers a lot

He made some plays, he made a lot of bonehead plays, got wrecked and took bad angles too. If you're going to praise the good nothing wrong with pointing out the flaws. That's how they get fixed

He reminded us that he’s a rookie today.  Not shocking that he struggled since it was his first playoff game and it was the third time the Texans saw him.  Now that he has this under his belt hopefully he bounces back with a big game next week against KC.

IMO, he had a decent game, perhaps not his best but decent, that one play that he got juked is the only real bad play I seen. It seen him make a couple big 3rd down stops. Maybe he did not get a sack, int, or fumble be he contributed to hold the Texans to 7 points and a Colt win, I'll take that anytime.  Walker seemed a little in the quiet side today, hopefully he will be a little more active next week coming off his injury, but that thats nit picking.

I don’t think people are complaining.  The defense as a whole played well, Darius didn’t have what we have come to expect from him.  That’s discussing what happened.

I hear you man. I'm seeing 10 of 11 wins and giving up 7 on the road to one of the league's hottest young QB's. I can't see the negative.

 

I can't lie and say I observed Leonard much because I watched with a group so there were distractions, but I never felt threatened by them. The D was literally bend don't break. Exactly as they want it to be. 

 

I'm happy... Lol. Sorry for the typos.

I am happy too.  I am just willing to acknowledge Leonard didn’t have his best game.  Defense still as a whole played a great game.

    • Willis - the 4th round pick they traded up to get will be lucky to make the 53?  Man that is highly questionable. I’d say he is much closer to a lock to make the roster than be cut prior to opening day. 
    • Well Im back been a long haul , my wife being blind had rotator cuff surgery and been in bad turn at same time so my cups been full.  But look lol the Central is just about where I left it. 162 games tells the story . Cards Cubs Brewers all right there together.
    • Faulk was a great player, but he was never a pure grind out yards type running back. Edge was.   James is a huge part of why the offense exploded in 1999 after we traded Faulk & drafted James. The play action to Edge/ bomb over the top to Harrison was absolutely LETHAL 
    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....
