Texans Week 3: Good, Bad and Ugly from Bears loss
Texans Week 3: The Bad
It is never fun being negative, but the play of Davis Mills wasn’t the best, and he probably doesn’t need anyone pointing out that fact. Even with his 245 yards passing, it was off a 20-of-32 performance that had more interceptions (two) than touchdown passes (one) against a Bears defense that isn’t the greatest.
Mills averaged 7.7 yards per completion, but that wasn’t good enough, and his reads weren’t where they needed to be either. The entire offense is to blame, but the conversation starts at quarterback, and whether it is fair or not, that’s how things go, because an offense is only as good as their quarterback.
Brandin Cooks had just two receptions on seven targets, so part of that is on Mills, but if the WR1 of the team only has two receptions totaling 22 yards, then maybe that player needs to create more plays for himself too.
Other than Pierce, the rest of the Houston rushing attack was nonexistent with Rex Burkhead having nine yards on three carries, and he was left in the game at an important moment of the fourth quarter, but more on that later.
In all, there were some more bad moments, but we all get the point, and that is more improvements need to be made if the Texans want to gain their first win of the season.
