Been mentioned in the thread a couple times already.


The refs missed that Byrd should have been down by contact on the play where he dove for an extra 3 yards since he was touched on the way down by a Texans player. Replay shows this. This wasn't as plain as day as the holding though, imho.

And Dugger tripped the TE without that it would have been a TD.

In all fairness, the refs were bad for both side

I thought he pulled him down by the jersey. Was hard to see live but pretty clear on replay. Refs were awful but we have bigger problems.

Do you happen to have a link to a replay? I'd like to see for myself, if possible.

Our "one of league's best" secondary absolutely sucked. At least we all knew our front-7 was trash, but these guys were even worse.

Having had the chance to watch the game again and review the All-22 (most of it anyway), the Texans basically gave us a dose of our own medicine on defense. It was clear in watching it that they were content to rarely blitz, contain the edges, and sit in soft zone (Cover-3, Cover-4, Quarters, etc) to limit Cam’s rushing attempts. Essentially, they gave him what he wanted through the air in exchange for not getting killed by his legs. The times they did blitz, they made somewhat of an attempt to disguise it. It was basically a carbon copy of what Bill has historically done against mobile QBs. Give them the short and intermediate completions when they can find the holes in the zone and keep all eyes in the backfield. Have to also credit Cam for the Byrd TD. That was one of the fewer times they were in man and instead of taking off and running, he recognized Byrd in single coverage and took advantage.

Who ended up playing LT when Wynn got rolled up on? Just read he avoided major injury.
