The Texan played hard. They tried.But they lost in Green Bay 21-13. They did everything right except score points.
They lost because Bill O’Brien can’t call plays. They lost because they could not stop the Packers when it mattered because their defense was once again gassed from being on the field too long.
And for another game, the Texans were outcoached.
It’ s time to admit O’Brien is overmatched. So is Romeo Crennel, but he is also playing shorthanded and his unit spends too much time on the field. The real problem is the Texans can not score. They try, but offensively they are terrible; probably the worst in the league.
O’Brien’s playcalling was predictable. And dumb. First down? Run the ball. There really is not much left to say about one of the most disappointing teams in the league. The quarterback is bad, the receivers can’t get open and don’t catch the ball in the rare times they do, and the coaching staff has them playing with one hand behind their backs.
O’Brien won’t get fired. He should, but it will never happen. For a guy who is supposed to be an offensive genius, his offense is a joke.
That is why the Texans lost. Don’t get me wrong. The Packers are not good either. But the Texans? Going the wrong way. Well played, O’Brien. Well played.
