Football Outsiders Provides Personnel Analysis On The Houston Texans
We’re a week away from crawling out of a Fourth of July hangover Houston Texans Hats , alone, tired, so alone, thinking about growing up, adopting a dog and getting married.We are also a week away from being able to pre-order the 2018 Football Outsiders’ Almanac. During the drag of the offseason, Football Outsiders will publish statistic sets as they write the book. Recently they came out with some personnel analysis. On offense, they discussed how 11 personnel (one running back, one tight end Houston Texans Womens Hoodie , three wide receiver) dropped in DVOA and usage for the first time since 2010 and then published team specific numbers. Houston used 11 personnel 52% of the time, which ranked 24th, averaged 6.1 yards a play, and had a DVOA of 2.4%, which ranked 19th. In every other personnel grouping, the Texans had a DVOA of -13.7%, which ranked 26th.The difference between 11 personnel and non 11 personnel of 16.2% for the Texans was the 11th highest difference in the league. I guess this is what happens when Tom Savage becomes the quarterback again and you try to hide him by running the ball but can’t really run the ball at all. Houston didn’t use 22 personnel (two running backs, two tight ends Womens Customized Houston Texans Jerseys , one wide receiver) at all last year.They used 13 personnel (one running back, three tight ends, one wide receiver) on less than five plays last year. Defensively, I never knew that the nickel formation was the predominant defense in the NFL. I guess watching Houston every week for so long warped my brain and turned me off from certain things. The Texans were one of the few teams to play their base defense more often than their nickel or dime defenses last year. Houston played their base defense 38% of the time (7th), nickel defense 34% of the time (28th), and their dime defense 24% of the time (8th). This allotment was similar to how the Texans played under Romeo Crennel in 2016; that season, Houston played base 37% of the time (11th), nickel 32% of the time (30th) Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey , and dime 30% of the time (4th). It’ll be interesting to see if Crennel continues to maintain a fluid defense and whether he has better results than Mike Vrabel did. That’s everything regarding Houston from FO at the moment. Regardless of the fact that this is a team specific site, you should check out both articles and read up on the league-wide trends entering the 2018 season. Last Sunday night, Deshaun Watson took too many shots and danced up on the bar. Three times in that game, he stampeded towards the goal line and was met with an onslaught of Cowboys. Jaylon Smith cracked him. Gang tackles pulverized him. During the game, Watson was noticeably hurt—breathing heavy on the sideline, adjusting his shoulder pads, and sneaking off to the blue tent. We finally have an update. It’s not much of an update. But it’s an update. Watson has a chest injury of some sort. He’s considered day-to-day. That’s all that’s known. The Texans also lost Kayvon Webster in Sunday night’s game. He left early in the game with a quad injury. Like Watson, nobody knows much of anything. After making his return from an Achilles tear and suiting up for the Texans for the first time http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/deshaun-watson-jersey , Webster may be out for a few days, a few weeks, a few months...nobody knows. The Texans are still waiting to hear back from the medicine man. Lastly, the Texans added corner Robert Jackson to their practice squad. They chose him after working out De’Vante Harris. That’s all that’s going on with the roster following Sunday Night Football as the team starts preparing for the Bills. In the meantime, keep an eye on Watson’s chest for me.Thanks. UPDATE:Deshaun says he’ll “for sure” play on Sunday against the Bills.
