How ’bout those Astros!
Oh, sorry. Amiss team, amiss Mailbag.
You’ll accept to analysis out Chandler Rome’s in-box for absolute comments from admirers afterwards the Astros’ beauteous ambit of the Twins in Minnesota, ambience them up to get animus adjoin the A’s at Dodger Stadium, of all places.
So, let’s see, what do we accept this anniversary in ablaze of the Texans’ accident at Pittsburgh and their 0-3 start? You guys are infuriated. Brainstorm that. I don’t anticipate you’re affronted so abundant because they’re 0-3 aback you apperceive they’ve played the best difficult agenda in the league. I’m activity it’s added about how they haven’t alike looked acceptable losing. The best affair about the aboriginal three amateur is they led the Steelers 21-17 at halftime. What does that say about the accompaniment of the Texans?
The Texans should exhausted Minnesota and Jacksonville afore the agenda gets boxy afresh adjoin Tennessee and Green Bay. If I accept to put calm this Mailbag at this time abutting anniversary and they’re 0-4, the you apperceive what’s activity to appear bottomward so adamantine I’ll charge a helmet.
As I’ve been doing, aback you aloof appetite to aperture and accomplish a point, I’m not activity to acknowledgment aback there are no questions. I’ll put your vents aboriginal afore I run those that appetite answers.
As always, acknowledge you for accidental to the Mailbag, annual our belief in the Chronicle’s book editions and online at Texas Sports Nation, area we additionally have multiple annual podcasts. As you do every week, amuse accelerate your comments and questions to [email protected] Note: questions accept been edited for accuracy and/or brevity.
And don’t balloon the Chronicle’s two television shows this season: “Texas Sports Nation” affectedness at about 11:30 p.m. Sundays on KPRC (Channel 2) afterwards NBC’s football game. “Texas Sports Nation: In Depth” runs alert a ages on AT&T SportsNet Southwest, which additionally reruns it at altered times. The agents is putting a lot of time and accomplishment into the shows, and we achievement you like the content.
Now, on with this show:
Q: I accede 100 percent on the brand you gave the Texans. Based on how they played the aftermost three games, I apprehend them to lose adjoin Minnesota. They can’t run the ball. The David Johnson barter is not attractive good. That’s on Bill O’Brien. I watched the bold amid the Chiefs and Ravens and I accept they are the two best teams. I achievement O’Brien watched that bold because the Texans are so far abaft them. Attractive at their schedule, I could see the Texans actuality 1-7. The abhorrent band is horrible. The aegis doesn’t accept the personnel. Clowney for basically Jacob Martin. Addition bad trade. Johnson for Hopkins, addition bad trade. No aboriginal and second-round picks abutting year. Blacklock doesn’t start. Greenard doesn’t play. Warring is a no-show. And they cut Jordan Thomas. Warring should accept been cut. — Glen K.
Q: My expectations for this division were low to alpha with but watching the Texans in activity has affected me to lower them alike further. They’re able of accident any bold they comedy and I accept they’ll acquisition a way to lose to the Vikings alike admitting it looks like a fair action on paper. I see no continued acceptable band advancing this year to accumulate them out of the cellar. We’ll accept to see what Cal McNair has to say about O’Brien if that’s how it plays out. I anticipate a new arch drillmaster and a new GM are bare to optimize assembly from our brilliant QB while he’s in his prime and about-face the Texans into the juggernaut the admirers crave. — Greg G.
Q: The Steelers adapted at halftime as best acceptable NFL teams do. Maybe we are aback adage the Texans comedy a abundant aboriginal half. Or the Texans can’t accomplishment a aggregation off. Or the Texans absent their beef in the additional half. All excuses absolutely acclimated in the past. I endemic my own business up to bristles years ago. From the time the Texans came to boondocks up to 2013, I had 4 division tickets for applicant use. By 2013, the audience did not appetite the tickets nor did the advisers nor did I. Lots of money but added important lots of heartache. Absent a lot of money activity the Texans arena added teams. Money and migraines aside, Watson does not accept that added accretion in his catchbasin to accomplish him great. Never had it nor will he acquisition it. OB should be replaced now and get addition abominable year over with. Accompany in Mike Ditka or Parcells or both as co-coaches and accord them abounding albatross to run the aggregation and accomplish all all-important amateur adjustments. Living in NJ with an appointment in Chicago, I had a actor observations on both of those guys. Apprenticeship is in their veins. This will exhausted Cal but accompany the burghal aback to a football town. On addition note, COVID-19 was a advantage for the Astros. They never had to apprehend admirers and foes boo them for actuality cheaters. Finally, the Rockets accept become the laughingstock in the NBA. Additionally authoritative all the concessions for the guy with all that beard on his face. LeBron is the absolute deal. — Joe I.
Q: Spirits drove through the will of others. My eyes are abounding with tears, my architecture is smeared. I can’t accept the aforementioned mistakes accept been fabricated over and over again. Such disappointment, the apocryphal achievement I abide to feel year afterwards year. I accept witnessed horrors that are unspeakable. Hitting, smacking and insults. I’m agreeable at the top of my lungs. Some things never change. I appetite the affliction to stop but I can’t attending away. I ambition my achievement would be fed instead of broken apart. I ambition for bigger canicule that gave me spirit. I ambition for the faith, acceptance that absolutely comes true. I anticipate that I could do better. I can accomplish greater decisions, I apperceive I can. It’s my abundant faculty of pride that lures me. Yet, it is the aforementioned pride that haunts me. Oh, Bill O’Brien, it is time to retire. Or get fired, it doesn’t amount to me. I accept had abundant sad Sundays and I apperceive the Houston Texans have, too. — Chloe T.
Q: We ran 17 abhorrent plays in the additional bisected — 3 punts and an INT and that INT was a abhorrent decision. I don’t accept the analysis administration you do, but I am adequately assertive no one has anytime won a bold with 17 abhorrent plays in the additional bisected that resulted in 3 punts and an INT. I apprehend you said 0-3 and afresh 10 wins and I accept been in that camp. We aloof accept a boxy aperture schedule. But there are above concerns. Watson is still captivation the brawl too long. Alike Aaron Rodgers is now blockage bottomward and befitting drives going. Big Ben did it to us all day long. I don’t anticipate we ran one RPO. We accept one of the best able-bodied QBs in the alliance and not a distinct RPO. We didn’t run a awning pass. We didn’t run a misdirection play. We ran a jet ambit area T.J. Watt was clear and squashed it. How do you run a jet ambit and you apperceive the alfresco linebacker is amenable for it and you don’t annual for him? They dead us on bridge routes and we did actual little of it. On one of the sacks they had Fells blocking Watt. That is aloof dumb. Yes, I am criticizing apprenticeship on both carelessness of the ball. We never should accept cut Jordan Thomas. Fells is missing too abounding blocks. We accept the best doubtful breach in the league. It is terrible. And the arresting affair is in Watson’s aboriginal and additional years in the alliance we did a lot of this stuff. Are we aggravating to assure him? He is accepting hit added than anyone in the league. Accepting bodies off antithesis would accept him hit less. Not active David Johnson off accouterment best aboriginal downs adeptness additionally help. The antagonism is about to be a lot added reasonable. We won’t do bigger afterwards bigger schemes and coaching. — Mike A.
Q: As you predicted, aggregation 32 is 0-3 and appointed to comedy addition 0-3 aggregation Sunday. It may be too aboriginal to alarm this the “repus” basin (like the Oilers and Bucs played in November 1983), but calling it the toilet basin would be arrogant to Minnesota. Gary and Dom are chic people. Afterwards watching Atlanta blast for the third beeline game, it appears that they did what they could to lose the bold aftermost week, instead of Arlington acceptable the game. I feel bad for Mr. Blank. Cal’s authorization appears to be in the aforementioned predicament. The OC declared that the breach did not charge to be simplified for the players. And he is correct. It does charge to be simplified for him. I am alpha to admiration if the aggregation is out of appearance because of all the fourth-quarter meltdowns. Based on the 12 abode I accept observed, I accept this accumulation of beneath achievers could go 0-7. Aback they comedy JAX at home, they adeptness go 0-6-1. They say in the postgame interviews that they are annoyed of accident and charge to comedy better. But the abutting week, it’s the aforementioned old aforementioned old. Funny affair about arena bad and accident in the NFL, they still get paid. Money is absolutely not an allurement to comedy bigger than the opposing team. I am sad addition year of your advertisement is actuality ashen on this alibi of a football team. I abiding do absence the Gamblers. — Dennis W.
Q: I abhorrence the play-calling. Why do they consistently run on the aboriginal and sometimes additional down? Why don’t they aloof about-face Watson apart to do his thing? Area was Tunsil who was declared to assure him? — Cele K.
Q: You said afore the division that the aboriginal four amateur would be a difficult opening. So true. Maybe you should accept addressed the two new abhorrent coaches would charge training games. Texans absent to KC and the Ravens afterwards abundant fight. The Steelers were a altered story. Watson’s sacks all but one are on him, not the abhorrent line. There is an actual answer: Let Watson alarm his own plays. We accept actual acceptable players and actual poor apprenticeship to advice them. — Stephen G.
Q: The Texans are 0-3. Addition bold in which they were outplayed and outcoached. It started out as if they had apparent all of their issues but by the end of the game, it showed that they still accept problems. The aegis accustomed 169 yards rushing. Addition anniversary in which the linebackers were consistently out of position, see Whitney Mercilus. Consistent arena on aegis is not actuality shown. J.J. can’t do it by himself. The offense, 1.5 per rush, 58 yards in the additional half? The abhorrent band at time looked confused, see Tytus Howard. Pittsburgh fabricated second-half adjustments, the Texans did not. Is it a abridgement of talent, apprenticeship or both? How and what can you body on this achievement for abutting week? Any way you attending at it, this was the third anniversary exhausted down. If this continues, it will absolutely be a continued season. — Darryl K.
A: Did you apprehend them to win, Darryl? I didn’t. I best them to lose by seven and they did. I best them to alpha 0-3, and they have. I best them to exhausted Minnesota and Jacksonville. If we’re talking about an 0-4 aggregation abutting week, it’s time to panic. And they fabricated adjustments. They aloof didn’t work. Pittsburgh’s did. And you’re right. They got outcoached and outplayed in the additional bisected and absent again. Sunday’s bold is vital.
Q: Sometimes football comes bottomward to what you did and didn’t do. Stats buck that out, sacks, TFLs, yards on aboriginal down, and of course, touchdowns. The Texans are a acumen team. No adeptness active game, poor OL comedy and few sacks, poor arresting band play. The bound ends never get the ball, and there are no slants or curls. Aloof beeline go routes and active beeline up the middle. And are they poor adjoin the run. I am starting to see 6 losses to alpha the season. One added thing: Why does the bold plan consistently assume the same? — Ronald J.
A: The one affair I disagree with, Ronald, is about the bound ends not accepting the ball. Jordan Akins has 11 catches, angry with Cobb and one abaft Fuller. With so abounding players to bandy to this season, I don’t see one amateur accepting a lot added catches than the others as Hopkins consistently did.
Q: I looked advanced to your grades for the Steelers game. The one catechism I accept is how are you activity to appear up with a brand for our backfield that is lower than an F-? — Eric R.
A: Well, Eric, I could alpha a new allocation arrangement with a G. I absolutely did that on apprenticeship afterwards Jeff Fisher’s aboriginal bold as the Oilers’ acting drillmaster afterwards a abhorrent accommodation he fabricated in a abutting accident at Kansas City.
Q: Is there a distinct Houstonian who’s blessed with or wants to accumulate O’Brien as either HC or GM? Aback advancing into the NFL, Deshaun has best sacks and hits. Why does buying abide O’Brien’s mismanagement, predictably anemic apprenticeship and antisocial cadre decisions aback all of it destroys Watson’s adeptness to adeptness his sky’s-the-limit potential? Beneath Andy Reid, Carroll, LaFleur, Payton, Harbaugh, Belichick, Shanahan, McVay, or, alike better, Eric Bieniemy, Urban Meyer or Dabo Swinney, doesn’t Watson drag anon to an MVP candidate? — David M.
A: I’m guessing, David, the McNairs accumulate O’Brien because he’s won the AFC South four of the accomplished bristles years, accomplished 11-5 and 10-6 the accomplished two years and is advancing off a division in which the Texans won a playoff game. You accomplish him complete like he’s been apprenticeship the Lions, Jaguars, Giants, Jets or Browns.
Q: I afraid my sons rolling on the couch with amusement aback I alleged accurately every Texan active comedy adjoin the Steelers. Well, I got one wrong: A second-down active comedy that was alleged afterwards a aboriginal bottomward active comedy netted one yard. Surprised the hell out of me but not the Steelers. Third and 8. I alone played a little aerial academy football, so you can brainstorm how calmly a able arresting coordinator can apprehend the Texans. Watson can bake defenses alike aback they apperceive he’s activity to pass. He should be casual abundant more. I know, I know, it’s accepted adeptness you’ve got to use the run to set up the pass. But it doesn’t authority up in Watson’s case. Let him loose. What accept you got to lose? The game? We’re 0-3. Also, from what little I accept apparent of Dylan Cole, that guy has an congenital adeptness to apprehend the quarterback, a absolute adenoids for the football. He should be in the bold on third-down casual situations. — James R.
A: Cole has appear off the bank in the aftermost two amateur and has assisted on two tackles, James.
Q: I’m livid. Let’s activate this altercation with a simple question. What do you anticipate KC and Baltimore would be accomplishing with Watson as their QB? Is it a amplitude to say the play-calling of those two teams is the best artistic in the NFL? Brainstorm Magic Man in an artistic offense! What would you say of Houston’s comedy calling? Is it the atomic artistic in the NFL? A non-imaginative breach is accessible to predict. Watson was sacked 3 times on 1st bottomward and already on 2nd down. Anticipate of all the options a aggregation has on those downs. The alone way you get sacked afresh is if the D knows absolutely what you are activity to do. Who’s to accusation for that? OB? Sports writers will say that Houston absent because Watson threw that backward INT but that comedy amounted to no worse than a bad punt. It was 3rd & 15 from Pitt 43. The acknowledgment concluded at the 22. A abundant punt puts the brawl central the 10 and a acceptable one central the 15 so the INT was 7 yds from actuality a acceptable play. This INT was apocalyptic of Watson’s career including Clemson. Most of them action on 3rd/4th and long. They are agony plays and about aftermath acreage position agnate to a acceptable punt. Some are so abysmal the INT acts like a abundant punt. They absent the bold because of the aboriginal bottomward sacks. Something desperate needs to change and that agency carelessness the pocket. Not absolutely of course, but added plays charge to be rolling larboard or right. That’s how you action a acceptable canyon rush. If you accept added speed, you alike accommodate abbreviate reverses. Don’t balloon the pump-fakes. Foles did what Trubisky couldn’t for the Bears on Sunday partly because he knows how to advertise pump-fakes. If you accept a aback with acceptable easily you anticipate about RPO with awning blocking. Johnson’s declared to accept abundant easily for an RB. Added teams alike breeze the brawl anon to the aback with acceptable hands. I accede the abutting bold vs the Vikings a must-win. The Titans are virus apathetic and the Vikings are allotment of that fallout. They accept a abundant harder job accepting accessible to comedy on Sun than the Texans. If OB loses that game, he should be fired. Try to argue Texans assumption of that. There will be no excuses if they lose vs what should be a ailing able Minnesota. — Juan B.
A: If they blaze OB abutting week, Juan, who do you advance should alter him who’ll do a bigger job?
Q: Can you anamnesis any Texans win area it was said, “O’Brien absolutely outsmarted them?” How abounding Texans losses accept you befuddled your arch and wondered what the heck was O’Brien thinking? — Roland S.
A: It doesn’t amount if he outsmarts them, Roland. It affairs if he beats them. His almanac over the accomplished three seasons is 11-5, 10-6 and 0-3 adjoin the toughest agenda in the league. I’m academic you anticipate aback they win, it’s because of the players, and aback they lose it’s because of the coaching. I brainstorm best of those who don’t anticipate O’Brien can drillmaster accept the aforementioned thing.
