It has been the same problem with JB all year.  He doesn't anticipate receivers getting open and it absolutely limits his passing game to his first read and the dump it to the hot guy.  That's been his passing prowess.  People blame the receivers getting open, but they do.  You can see it when you can see enough of the field.  Sometimes on replays.


The main WR couldn’t get open vs a 35 year old CB off the bench. And that’s the play the coach called on 2 3rd downs in a row instead of the 1 thing the offense can do. And the pass still hit him in the hands both times.

Wow. i’m rather surprised by the negativity. we havent played well and we’re right in there in a hostile environment against a really good team.   We’re in great shape for the 2nd half.

Gonna ignore the tackle by the helmet on the pick? #playersafety

To my eyes, neither of the last two holding calls on Kelly and Glowinski were legit. Kelly just fell on the DL who was going diving. Glowinski barely touched on the call against him.

I am REALLY sick of us getting screwed by the refs FAR more often than our opponents.

Nonsense.  Losing this game was because we couldn't pass the ball and nothing more.  This game is on Brissett and his receivers.  Not sure who is more to blame but man Brissett does not inspire me at all

And for all u people who say our wrs suck.  What has happened to the tight end involvement in this offence? People on this board were saying that we had the best tight end group in the NFL.  All of a sudden they can't get open or have become obsolete?!?!? Doesn't male sense... 

Brisett is no Luck.

you cant win games in 2019 averaging 150 passing yards a game .    you cant line up every single first down and run the ball then run the ball again , then try and pass it on 3rd and long .   play calling was so bad the whole game .

I refuse to think the entire staff just forgot how to call a game.... Ya think they are working within limitations maybe? Lol

No, the recovery sure wasn't.  And no, I'm not blaming the refs for this loss.  We get the ball back there and do what, run for ten more yards?  Who cares

We came up with it in the scrum. Recovery is the same with any other fumble. Doesn’t matter. Why wasn’t it even reviewed?

That and our supposedly good defense crumbled tonight Passing game blows.

That was more of an issue with how we schemed against Watson.  We played him with the spy, which the point was to have someone once Watson inevitably scrambles.  That means you're running a lot of man coverage and we didn't have the CB power to match Fuller and Hopkins.  Once the play breaks down and scramble rules are in effect, we just can't keep up.  The bombs were just well thrown prayers against inferior CBs.  Sigh...

Disagree.  We pounded the ball. The passing game failed.

I like Brissett, but I am starting to come to the realization that a lot of areas o. This team are good enough to have consistent success.... This team isn't holding Brissett back most weeks, and never when healthy ....it's obvious the healthy weakest links.

They didn't. It's that simple.  Brissett was go na throw for 50per ENT of his total yards the last thirty or so seconds?  Lol. Ok

We didn't play badly.  The passing game was beyond bad.  150 yards passing in today's football against a horrible passing D.

I have a feeling we will all be talking about the Peyton Manning 2006 Superbowl win as our greatest memory as they bring us our food tray at the old folks home!

Some of us are closer to that reality t

God no.  D played very good.  Running game pounded the rock.  U tell me that and I would thought we won the game.  The passing game was absolutely horrible. In Ballard we trust......not.

Hmm.

Let's try this again. This has LITERALLY nothing to do with Brissett playing badly. At all.

 

And, if you don't think the Texans got a massive advantage then you weren't paying attention.

I mean yea, those were two big plays...but there's plenty of others that JB missed as well.  Arguably more crucial plays.  I like JB, and he's our best option.  He's still an option that holds us back against teams like the Texans where they can score ultra quickly and our response is never less than a 6 minute drive.  We lean on the run and when it's not there, it hurts.

Absolutely crapped the bed. 

Worst

No imagination. Ran the same 4 running plays the entire game.

 

T.Y. drops 2 first downs......that didn't help.

 

But I cannot stress this enough.

Like ever

Not. 20 points given up by the D.  We pounded the rock which should have made it easy for the passing game. Simple,  Brissett cant find a phone in a phone booth!!! He is not the answer

JB played poorly, so pour it on to the people that think he stinks. Let me say this as bad as he played why was Hopkins wide open on 2 easy TD's?  Why is Frank Reich handing the ball off on every key down? TY Hilton should've caught that last deep ball too as well, no excuse for not making that play as JB threw a good ball on that deep pass. 

 

This might be the worst coaching job I have ever seen Reich do. Hand off after hand off. I mean Jeez! If you think JB isn't the man Frank, then put Chad Kelly in for peat sakes.

    • There IS another possibility. Let’s say your scenario plays out just as suggested:  the Colts draft a LT who isn’t quite ready ( 2nd rounder ); Tevi opens the season as the starter; BUT, Tevi proves to be a turnstile. What to do? Big Q to the rescue. In a pinch, why not? You do it until your rookie is ready for the full time job and fill in at LG with one of the backups like Pinter. The opposition to moving Q to LT is far less convincing if Plan A has bombed. 
    • That is why he wants to leave, you are making it about something else.  You are the one out in left field here   The coaching situation is one small part of this, not the whole story by a long shot The coach they hired is black , it isn't about race
    • Well if you are going to use stats to make a point, yes it is important how they are measured. So now that you aren't using them I'm guessing my point on separation stat was true.   -My last post on the subject
    • I'm thinking the reason these Watson topics get locked is because the conversation starts veering into opinions about matters that are not relevant.  In this case, what Easterby is or isn't, and therefore by extension what HOU is or isn't by their employment of him.  Your opinion is determined by whatever lens you own, not proven facts.  Apparently, the locker room and NFL have a diverse set of lenses whereby some things are bigger deals to some players and not such a big deal to others.   It seems some support Watson holding out for a trade because their lens shows them that HOU is bad for the reasons of Easterby and McNair.    So they are supporting Watson holding out for a trade, but, its for different reason than Watson has expressed.   That's why I was wondering why irrelevant topics are being brought into a discussion about Watson and the reasons motivating a trade.  His reasons need to be understood because they would carry on to another owner.  Its not about the reasons we think he should want one, or the reasons why JJWatt thinks he should want one.    Watson's reasons are clearly about EB.  And if Watson is linking Bienemy to a violation of the Rooney Rule, the Rooney Rule has been around for about 15 years and the Texans have complied.  Its almost like he's taken a 3 minute look at the EB situation and expressed a public hot take conclusion without even knowing the Texans record of complying with the Rooney Rule.            
    • I agree what did most pundits say that we had the most complete roster in football last season.  Why, because Ballard built that through the draft for the most part and it hasn't put the team in salary cap hell like many other teams that don't even have the roster that we have so the credit goes to Ballard.
