Week 16 - Texans: Houston, You Have A Problem

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

Is Doug gonna do that dumb shtein where he won't admit that Wentz isn't playing, and gets all mad at the media like it's some big farging secret he's trying to keep from the Texans?

For the love of god stick with Smallwood. Hes vanilla as farg but at least he hits holes fast and can make quick cuts. Adams cutting is like watching a tractor trailer make a turn.

I don't get the Adams hate.  In almost a hundred career rushes he's averaging 4.5 yards.  I don't care what it looks like when it happens--Blount was the fugliest runner I can recall in a long time too--he's doing work.

He gets a hole hes fine, he accelerates nicely and knows how to fall forward. If theres no hole hes not quick enough to make a cut and Ive never seen a slower back try to bounce it to the outside. Hes also tall with long thin legs and a long stride, not powerful enough to break tackles, not stout or strong enough to keep his legs churning. I have no idea why they run him up the middle on short yardage plays, hes not a power back and doesnt get going fast enough to use his momentum.

Blount on the other hand was a farging bull. He has deceptive speed for a big man and nobody wanted to tackle him one on one.

Smallwood is vanilla as they come but at least he cuts fast and is slippery. Adams should be more of a change of pace back because the one thing he does have going for him is he could break a long run whereas Smallwood doesnt have that breakaway speed.

When I say hes vanilla its essentially saying hes garbage. Hes just more useful garbage than Adams.

Use all of the backs.

Adams has his moments. Id like Doug to maybe come up with a better short yardage play though than lining him up in shotgun and having his lumbering ass try to get the first on a slow developing play.

What kills me is they have a 65 qb...just run a damn sneak.

If they're going to insist on using screens, I wish they'd bring back the bunch WR screen.

We talking about the RBs or the QBs?

The last couple of years I think the team has had a good feel for which RBs to use in which situations. I can't say the same about knowing when to call runs vs. when to call passes though.
