Brice McCain


This is my first fanpost here. I have read through probably around 90% of all the posts posted on this site for the past year or so excluding the gameday posts. I am currently living in Denver and can not watch the Texans play unless I go out to a local bar of some sort. 

The Texans secondary has been has been historically bad. Because of this, I was pleasantly surprised by the play of the secondary minus Brice McCain.

McCain seemed to get beat early and often. Sanchez's first touchdown pass occured when McCain gave a 5 yard cushion on the goal line to his man. Every time a big pass play occured (minus the last drive) It seemed McCain was at the losing end of it. The first of Holmes touchdowns came when Holmes beat McCain who then proceeded to fall down. Not that it mattered since he was a good 5 yards off coverage anyways.

I know the Texans secondary has been horrible this year but IMO McCain should not see another down unless we are in the quarter package. I would like to see Quin and Jackson continue to start and take their lumps with Allen in the Nickel and McManis in the dime. 

I haven't taken the time to break down the coverage today but the eye test would leave me to believe that McCain gave up 150+ and 2 TD's in the least. Why he continued to cover Holmes well into the 4th quarter astounds me. 

I realize this is more of a rant than anything but I figured this was the best place for it. With other Texan fans who care as much about this team as I do and watch as much as I do. I'd love to hear others thoughts on this game in general as well as the specifics of McCain's suckage.
