It’s time for the Houston Texans to play Scottie Phillips

Something has to give, as all the Scottie Phillips hasn’t gotten a chance to play this year.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Surprisingly enough, Offensive Coordinator Tim Kelly and Head Coach David Culley don’t seem to notice the fact that the Houston Texans rushing offense can’t even get out of the parking gear.

The only running back who’s had a decent contribution has been Mark Ingram (no surprise here) and even that’s being generous to Ingram. The offensive line is so banged up and messed up beyond any recognition (MUBAR) that it’s surprising this offense had over 300 yards passing last week. 243 yards passing isn’t bad for a rookie, but it sure could have been a lot more had there not been mistakes by penalties, fumbles, and dropped passes.

David Johnson has to be cut. When he was in Arizona, he was given the terrible nickname of “the Humble Rumble”. That should be changed to the “Humble Fumble” as that’s exactly what Johnson did today. It certainly didn’t help the Texans and his production has been underwhelming.

Houston Texans are negligent by not playing Scottie Phillips

This is a 1-5 team that only beat the Jacksonville Jaguars pre-Urban Meyer party mode. Why not trot out the fifth running back on the roster. What is there to even possibly lose? Phillips was the best runner in the preseason for the Texans and it wasn’t even close.

Try it. Who knows what will happen. The offensive line may just be too much to overcome for Phillips, and that’s definitely not being ignored here. Whatever changes are made, execution and finishing the drives have to become standard so that way this team doesn’t turn into a laughingstock.

The Cardinals are next up and present an even tougher matchup.

Next. Darkness continues to fall on Texans in terrible loss to Colts. dark
