RG: What is the one are the Texans can take advantage of the Colts? And where do you see the biggest weakness for Houston that Indy can attack?
ER: The offensive line has been pretty bad this season. Granted, Luck has to get rid of the ball faster but there is a real lack of talent on the line. They looked better this week, but that was because the Jags pass rush is nonexistent. While Luck has historically been great against the blitz, it has been a real problem this season.
If past games hold true, the Colts generally take the Texans apart with T.Y. Hilton, but the Houston secondary has looked pretty good this season. The weakness seems to be covering tight ends and running backs, both positions the Colts need to get more involved in the passing attack.
RG: So far Andre Johnson has been rather quiet, do you think his signing was a mistake or will he come around? If so, will it be this week against his old team?
ER: It is tough to say what the problem is with Johnson. It seems to be part age catching up with him, part lacking any rapport with Luck on the field, and part how the team is using him on the field. If Johnson doesn’t put in a big performance against his former team, I’m not sure what will get him out of this slump.
