Summaries especially for @CoachLite :goodluck:

 

Quick Summary - Houston's O vs Colts D

Passing - we gave up 300+ last game and 2 WRs had 100+, but Houston was also playing from behind a lot. Our DBs are a little gimpy and Willis will be out, so I'm assuming Watkins will get his. We had 2 INTs last game which helped diminish the 300+. 

Rushing - We did an outstanding job vs Hyde in the first game. Not sure we can do that again. If we can come out and play well on O, I think we'll force Houston to pass more and run less. If Hyde has a good day, it's probably bad for us.

Overall - I don't think we'll get 2 INTs this week, and I doubt we are able to shut down Hyde again. If Watkins gets over the ankle issue, we'll probably struggle in both phases. We need to dictate from the beginning and get after him with the DL. Hoping Flus is creative this week.

 

Houston Offense

7th in total yards per game (380.2)

14th in passing yards per game (239.5)

5th in total rushing yards per game (140.7)

10th in total points per game (24.5)

6th in Red Zone Offense % (65.71) 

16th best in INTs thrown (7)

22nd best in sacks taken (32)

Out - 

DNP (Monday) - None

LP (Monday - Fuller WR (hamstring - will likely be GT decision), Howard G/T (knee)

FP (Monday) - Watson QB (ankle)

VS

Colts Defense

11th in total yards per game allowed (325.6)

11th in passing yards allowed (228.8)

9th in rushing yards allowed (96.8)

15th in points per game allowed (20.6)

10th in Red Zone Defense % (51.72%)

19th best in INTs (7)

15th best in sacks (25)

26th in blitz % (22.8%)

25th in QB hurry % (8.5%)

25th in total QB pressure % (21.2%)

Out - Willis SS (conc)

DNP (Monday) - Geathers SS (rest), Odum FS (shoulder), Taylor CB (ankle), Ya-Sin CB (ankle)

LP (Monday) -  Desir CB (Hamstring)

 

Quick Summary - Houston's D vs Colts O

Passing - Even when healthy, Houston has one of the worst passing Ds in the league. And they are not healthy. 3 of their 4 starting DBs are banged up, and another 2 depth DBs are gimpy. And while they blitz a lot, they are dead last in the league in total QB pressures. Even with an gimpy WR unit, we should easily dominate them here. Look for Pascal, Hines, and the TEs be very productive if targeted. It would be real nice to get Hilton and/or Campbell back.

Rushing - Houston is decent vs the run, but has been very inconsistent. I think we'll be fine with Williams if we play a man blocking scheme and don't get to cute. Houston is vulnerable on the edge too, so wouldn't be surprised to see Hines get some carries.

Overall - There's no reason we shouldn't score points in the passing game. The game will likely be on JB's arm, and he should have another big game vs Houston this week. Rushing may be a bit frustrating, but I don't think we need a lot vs Houston. If we struggle on O, I think Houston will play ball control, Hyde will do well, and we'll be in trouble. 

 

Houston Defense

25th in total yards per game allowed (374.4)

29th in passing yards allowed (272.4)

13th in rushing yards allowed (102.0)

30th in Red Zone Defense % (65.52%)

28th best in INTs (5)

26th best in sacks (22)

9th in blitz % (32.9)

30th in QB hurry % (7.3%)

32nd in total QB pressure (18%)

Out - 

DNP (Monday) - Adams S (conc), Johnson CB (ankle), Reid S (conc+shoulder)

LP (Monday) - Cole ILB (knee), Gipson S (back), Roby CB (hamstring - will likely be GT decision)

VS

Prediction

If TY comes back I think JB will have the same type of game as last time. Not sure what will happen if he doesn’t. I think we will run better without Watt and Reid.

Watt really isn't/wasn't huge in the running game. 

Reid would be a big loss if he ends up not playing.

On offense, it depends on the health of our WR core. If TY can play then we can get something going on offense, even if he dosnt produce big. Houston will always do their best to take away TY which leaves someone else open. The right side of the line dosnt have to worry about Watt. Hopefully we can still get a running game going with no Mack.

 

On defense, I think they're about to put some points up. They just about got shut out, and offenses like theirs usually follow those  with high scoring games. The secondary is going to have their hands full we with Hopkins if Desir dosnt play. 

 

37 - 35 Colts

Even if TY just plays as a decoy it will be a big help. 

Houston's standard MO is to double the top WR/TE threat. And they're so bad we should have plenty of options regardless if TY is back or not. Of course we want TY to play, but there should be plenty of folks open regardless.

I wonder why this thing is still a problem he hasn't played in almost a month and a half week 7 was his last game played since he missed the Denver, Pittsburgh, dolphins, and jags game.

Hamstrings on corners can be bad. Roby has missed a month for the Texans. I think they have tried to get him back as close as they can’t to 100% for this game. I think they trust the other corners to get things done.

That was a complete debacle of coaching prep and game plan.

I don't see that happening again.

The last three games since the Watt injury the Texans are allowing 6.61 yards per carry. Which ranks 31st right ahead of Jax.

The last three games.

Raiders - 4.0

Jags - 4.9 mainly because of Minshew having a couple big scrambles

Ravens - 7.3 - due to L. Jackson's big scrambles, and a 60+ yard TD run by Edwards.

 

The 6.3 is a little misleading. It's really one game, and that one game had only a few big gains from the QB scrambling and a very long TD of 60+ yards by Edwards (this is an edge run where the DBs all get manhandled downfield - link below).  And the Jags game wouldn't be 4.9 without several big scrambles. Not sure how much I put that on the loss of JJW. More of an impact to sacks/qb pressure, which they don't rank well there to begin with. Unless JB is going to use his feet a whole lot, not much to see here.

This is Crennel fear mongering his players lol. Whatever it takes I guess, but he's throwing a dart with a blindfold on in terms of prediction.

We are now approaching the endgame for our season: the war of attrition. Last men standing basically wins.

Shocked Paris can't go yet with him being limited all week, still struggling to catch the ball I imagine. Nice to see TY has a shot and Wilkins looks like he's good to go. 

 

So our healthy corners for this game are:

  1. Desir
  2. Moore
  3. Tell
  4. Wilson
  5. Hopfully Rock

With it being a away game not sure they would do that on game day. Someone has to be released also. Haven’t seen that yet. I think they will want a contact practice first.

Agreed. Just saying technically, they could. In practice, they wont.

    • I still have a hard time believing this. Rest in peace Kobe. Prayers for Kobe's and the other victim's families of this awful tragedy.
    • Any one else catch the parts about Chad Kelly. About how he has to show them they can trust him off the field? I’m not pushing for Chad Kelly as our next Qb, but I found that part interesting. Almost makes me wonder IF he’s not gonna get his shot at the starting job regardless of FA or the Draft results.
    • Burrow was not thought of this highly early(when Ballard was rumored to like Herbert and Love). It was kind of an avalanche that was gaining more and more mass and power the more games got played. I don't think it was until November-December that people started talking about Burrow as a no. 1 pick. He just never had that body of work before this year and a lot of his most impressive games and against best opponents were at the end of the year.        I've heard Brady thrown around, but no idea if there is anything real behind those rumors. The rumors say that they are having hard time attracting any fans to their games and their owners think getting a legend like Brady to play for several years for them might jump start their new fanbase in LA. No idea whether to believe this or not. 
    • To me being a boom or bust is kind of a plus for a QB, because the worst you can be is mediocre once that rookie contract comes to an end. I would prefer for whoever we draft to be either great or horrible and for us to know relatively quickly so we can either invest in him or move on quickly. This is part of the appeal with Love for me. The things he needs to improve are heavily coaching based and I think we will have a good idea of where on the spectrum he will end up pretty quickly. For example - if you draft him and he's not ready to start by year 2, this is a red flag and you might start looking for another one. If 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period are not enough for your coaching staff to get him ready you either have made a mistake with the draft pick or with your coaching staff and I do have good trust in the coaching staff so... 
    • For me the tiers are more important the the specific ranking... I rank players within a tier very similarly and even though I would have preferences within them, I don't feel strongly enough to argue one over the other.    Tier 1(sell the farm for him - i.e. multiple 1sts, multiple day 2 picks, etc) Burrow   Tier 2 (trade a significant asset for him - i.e. a future 1st round pick) Tua(if I have medical guarantees he'd be alright health-wise)   Tier 3 (trade a medium level asset for him(i.e. a second, a third...) or take him at #13) Love Herbert Tua(if our medical staff cannot give you any guarantees whatsoever either way -for example, there were some reports that it might be too early before the draft to tell whether he will be good or not)   Tier 4 (second round) Eason Fromm     Tier 5 (third-fourth round) Gordon(have to do more work on him, might change his ranking) Hurts   Tier 6 (round 5-7) Tua(if the medicals come bad and there is high risk of reinjury/retirement/not full recovery/etc.) Tyler Huntley Nate Stanley     I'm still watching some QBs so that's not my final ranking.
