Grugier-Hill: Texans defense “just not playing good ball”

The Houston linebacker also said he thinks “it’s easy” to fix their defensive issues

Tuesday, Houston Texans linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill said the defense just isn’t playing up to it’s ability right now:

“I think that we’re just not playing good ball right now. I think there’s a lot of growth that needs to be done. We’re not at our potential, which we could be.”

The Texans linebacker stated that there is still a lot of season left, and the team can get on track, but there has to be more trust:

“I think just trusting each other, everybody being on the same page, communication. There’s a lot of different factors that can help with that. It’s really just coming in every day and working, trying to figure everything out. It’s one of those things where it’s not looking pretty right now, but there’s a lot of football left. We’ve seen it every year. Teams turn around and can make big changes.”

He doesn’t think achieving that trust should be difficult:

“No. I don’t think it’s hard. It’s normal. In football, everyone wants to make plays. Everyone’s trying to make plays. Sometimes I feel like, myself included, you try to make a play, and it’s actually putting the defense in a harder position instead of just doing what you’re supposed to do in the call.”

Grugier-Hill did not deny he could hear the boos Sunday:

“It’s horrible, right? That’s just part of the game. You go everywhere, every team. We were in Denver, and they were booing their offense. That’s just part of it. We can’t really let that dictate how we feel. We have to just continue to do our job.”

He also said he didn’t believe the cure for what ails the defense is a complicated formula:

“I think it’s easy. I think it’s easy. I think it just comes down to us putting our head down and going to work.”

As for what they need to do against Jacksonville in Week 5?

“I think we just have to get back to discipline football, everybody staying in gaps, no one is shedding out. It’s just everybody doing their job and trusting each other within the scheme, within the defense, just being able to have that trust within each other.”
