The second quarter of Sunday’s game with Baltimore was a tough one for the Texans. They threw a pick 6. They allowed a punt return touchdown. And today, head coach Gary Kubiak says their radio headsets (to communicate with the quarterback/coordinators) stopped working too.
“We had some communication problems [in Baltimore],” said Kubiak. “Out headsets went out in a portion of the game and we didn’t respond to that very good.”
Kubiak said the problems arose late in the second quarter, and popped back up later in the third. In fact, at one point the team was forced to use a timeout.
“You saw us one time when we’re giving Matt the play in the huddle we assumed he had the play,” said Kubiak. “All of a sudden he steps out of the huddle and says I never heard a thing.”
However, Kubiak said those technical issues weren’t a valid excuse for the team’s offensive performance against the Ravens.
“We can talk, get Matt over to us, we can use hand signals, we can relay players, we can do whatever we have to do,” said Kubiak. “It’s something you always have to be prepared for in this league. It can happen at the drop of a hat…That’s something we’ve got to handle, and we didn’t do a very good job that day.”
