Run defense for the texans is not good. we have the worst run defense by far, averaging 200 yards against us every game.

ironically, we have a very average pass defense, allowing 230 yards. tied with the ravens.

the easy thing to say to this is, we let some long plays get away from us, 60 yard TD run, etc, but the bottom line, is, that all is part of the run game, and our defense is deficient.

I hope that coach can do something about this, our dline is fast and moves quickly, but we don't have any 350lb 6'6" behemoths that will scare the **** out of a 5'8" 210lb running back, and lay him out on his ass.

We have pro bowlers on our defense, 90, 59, 23, 56, and I'm sure I'm missing some numbers, but still, we have great players, and play makers, we just really need to have a cohesive defensive line to stop the damn run.

it has been our weakness since the texans were added to the league.

It's hard to imagine any team except for a few stellar exceptions, to be able to stop the run game of RB's like Tennessee's Chris Johnson (Who ran for 97 yards against the Jets yesterday!) and Maurice Jones-Drew (the Jags).

I need to see us play a team that does not have a good or great running back to run all over us to be convinced of that argument.
