I t will not look like it, but I have been looking at my thingy this week for hours. I have been trying to show inspiration and humor, and ... nothing. I have been struggling to find both positivity (I know that probably isn't a real word) and humor in all that has happened this past week. The losses keep piling and the Bamboozling seems to have run its course. I have had no big deals happen this week, but sometimes the little joys make life what it is.
Very Little Quarterback Talk:
All three of Keenum's sacks came against five or more rushers, his touchdown pass to Griffin came in such a situation, Keenum completed only 6 of 19 passes against five or more rushers. He was off target on 21% for 2.4 yards per attempt. The kid needs to learn to read blitzes fast because everyone will blitz him.
Keenum was 16 of 24 ,6.5 ypa against 4 or less rushers.
Keenum's first-half passer rating was 101.3, which is very good. He ended up with a 87.5 passer rating. Anyone that watched could see the difference.
So, I was thinking, if Kubiak would have pulled Schaub sooner in the season… would it have made a difference? This is just a question to swill about in my mind on whether or not it would have made a difference. After having watched the Cardinals game – I am not sure it would have mattered.
Just for information, I thought Kubiak was going to pull Schaub after the 4th game. He waited until he got injured instead.
Where am I on the Kubiak train? Well, I am not on his train. I like him as a coach, and I like what he brings to the Texans. What I think will happen is that they let him ride out his contract (1 more year) and then make the decision. Is this year a dumpster fire? Yes.
justification to fire him? Yes. The question is – do you want to do that now, and who do you replace him with at this time?
An Interesting Tweet
I find it interesting, in light of that statement, that the Texans got so few sacks. I have been perplexed by this all year, and I really do not have an answer.
The Most Combined Tackles by any Texan so far this year and happens to be by a player that has not been on the field for 3+ games - Brian Cushing
Number of TD passes I have counted given up by Brice McCain (Someone with access to advanced statistics can confirm or deny this) but he does have 2 "passes defensed" this season
Number of QB hits/hurries the Texans had in the game against Carson Palmer
Because a Pizza Vending Machine is cool
An "ill-advised" throw.
Is what got Andre Johnson his second Touchdown reception. It was one of the greatest sights to behold.
Sorry there is no power rankings this week - I would have never got this thing posted, as I still haven't found what I am looking for in these.
