I waited a little while to start this due to the sky is falling mentaility after last sunday.

Texans 17
Seahawks 16

That #1 defense is gonna give our offense hell especially if AJ and D.B are out. I think our defense steps it up though and we pull out a nail bitter at the end. I also think we see fosters true value in this game when he puts the offense on his shoulders and carries us to a W.

Let the blood bath begin....

46-10 Seachickens.

Schaub with 2 pick sixes. Kubiak states afterwards "Hes battling. Just have to learn and get better." Cushing gets suspended for 2 games because he scream at Matt after second pick six "You are freaking terrible!" and ***** slaps him on TV.

so you guys have the Seahawks this Sunday? wow! that is a tough one! imo, the Seahawks defense is playing incredible football right now. they play with chips on their shoulders. i think it will be a tough game on your offense but, i believe that your defense can keep you guys in this game and even take it over for you. your defensive front was giving my Ravens hell with trying to run the ball. and if they can play like that against Wilson and Beastmode, then you guys will have a shot.

what's the word on AJ? is he playing? cause if not, that's a whole different issue.

Seahawks 24, us 6.

Anemic offensive performance of course, Scub throwing 2 picks and the defense will give up a TD drive in the first series of the second half. Defense of course doesn't force a turnover because the DB's don't locate the ball ever and they can't catch. Hero of the game will be Shane Lechler besides JJ who will get 2 sacks and swat 2 passes.

I think the Seahawks are going to bring massive heat on Schaub and they are gonna be very physical with our WR's. Andre is less than 100% and Hopkins will face the biggest secondary in the NFL and he won't do much since he isn't going to run past anyone. I can see us moving the ball between the 20's but I don't see too many scores. This team is still too slow. If Andre Johnson takes another hit and goes out for any length of time this offense will get ugly in a hurry because everyone is going to crowd the box and the middle of the field. Texans fatal flaw is the lack of killer speed.

Based on what we've seen the first three weeks, I would not be surprised by total domination by the Seahawks in a game that is never close.

Obviously hope the Texans rise up and compete, but I do not see Schaub escaping the rush and beating the coverage.

Our defense could put up a good fight, but if they cannot consistently get to Wilson, he will scorch our soft coverage. Dude is elusive and will give our front 7 a hard time all day long.

That does concern me. He'll extend a play, giving his "ho-hum" WRs time to get open.

We struggle with the big play, Russell Wilson is a big play just waiting to happen.

But I think we'll get our lead early. After that, It's our time.

Nah... it lets us know who's who. Remember we had to wait 6 games last season before the "told you so"s were able to tell us so. Then they had to wait another 7 games so they could tell us so again. These poor guys, who have no love for our QB or our HC, have been waiting all offseason to tell us so again.

The Texans will start winning soon enough. This negativity will subside. Then when we win the Super Bowl, they'll tell us how they were here supporting the Texans the whole time, that they believed when no one else would.

I wouldn't consider myself a homer, but in this sea of negativity, it's hard not to give that appearance. I'd love to be able to talk to my fellow Texans about what's going on on the field, but there's so much negativity now, so much hate... it wouldn't make for good conversation.

The second half was hard to watch a second time. But I think we're all going to be pleased with our young WR corps.

There were a lot of 5 step drops, a few 7 step drops where Harris & Newton were able to protect Matt... to me, that's encouraging because we'll probably never face another pair of end rushers like those two again in the regular season.

I still haven't seen enough of Seattle on the road to say they are the same team there as they are at home.

My prediction is it's 24-12 Texans win.

Initially everyone will be freaking out when the Seahawks go up 9-3 early and the defense seems to only be able to stop them in the red zone. Yet, the commitment to the run pays off with some big runs in the 2nd and 3rd qtr, and we end up seeing 1 TD each for Foster and Tate. To seal the deal there will be another TD in the 4th qtr to OD on a play-action on first down in the red zone.

As amazing as the Seahawks pass defense is, their run defense has always been close to average once you look at per play (at least outside of the red zone). They are currently giving up 4 yards a rush this year (good for 17th according to ESPN), and they gave up 4.5 yards a rush last year (for 23rd). Key will be for Barian Fostate to pound them into submission.

Even the darkest pessimist can still support the team.

If you think only sunshine pumpers are the only true fans, so be it.

But I know many diehard fans, some season ticket holders since 2002, that are realistic about the team and often have streaks of pessimism. It doesn't mean that they no longer support the team, though.

Don't put words in my mouth DB.

There's a difference between pessimism & hate. There's a lot of hate on this board right now.

Absolutely tough score to predict for me. Hoping that the Texans win, but I don't see the Texans scoring much on the Seahawks' D. However, the Texans have been giving up points, and Russell Wilson is a great mobile QB, and mobile QBs historically do well against the Texans, so I must find that happy medium:

Texans 30
Seahawks 27

Might require overtime to get to this score.

I beg to differ. There was a lot of good things going on in our last three games. It's only a matter of time before we put it all together. I think we'll get most of it right this Sunday... & with help from the hometown crowd, we'll pull off a convincing victory.

There was a lot of bad happening those first couple games and they put that all together against the Ravens, so maybe it's time they flipped the script. They haven't scored over a TD in the first quarter yet, though, so not sure where you're getting the idea they'll jump out to an early lead. Here's to hoping, though! :texflag:

I predict MS will have a hard time finding wide open receivers because of the way Seattle plays D and therefore he will get sacked often and throw the ball away many other times. 2 or more interceptions or fumbles by MS. We will have a difficult time running the ball. Basically our offense will be stagnant. We will go for it a couple times on 4th down just to try and get something going. I think we score 6-10 points. Seattle may not be able to move the ball traditionally but we will not be able to contain Wilson at key times and he will scramble and extend plays that extend drives. He will complete a few long passes or get pass interference that will kill the Texans. Even with all this they only score 27 or so points. If we can win the TO battle by 2 or more and we don't give up a pick 6 or long return the game will be competitive and we may win.
Really looking forward to this game and I like that it is early in season because this will be a very good measuring point for team and MS.

Agree with your first paragraph 100%, but IMO they will not say they believed all along, and supported when no one else would, instead they will give the credit to someone else, ANYONE ELSE but Schaub and Kubiak. They will say the Texans won in spite of Schaub and Kubiak. It's what they live for.

Let's just hope Schaub and Kubiak can silence them for a long period of time real soon.

We scored a 1st Qtr TD against the Chargers & the Titans. On the opening drive vs the Titans. We marched the length of the field on our first drive against the Ravens & scored (not a TD, but we scored).

We've yet to score more than 9 points in the first half... definitely something to work on. But that's what this is, a work in progress. Just like every other NFL team.

We'll get it done Sunday.

They play the same defensive philosophy that many of us hate. Pressure up front, primarily man on the back end.

And they are good at it. One thing I want to see is will MS spread the ball out a little more. He may be forced to because of AJ's physical condition. Anybody notice how Peyton and Brady distribute the ball based on who is open or should be based on their read of defense prior to the snap. Notice how MS concentrates on AJ while he is on the field and only goes to others when AJ is out. I have to think that AJ is not the most open receiver on most of the plays. Please explain why people consider MS such a heady QB because I have not ever felt that way.

I don't think there is anyway we win this game. I am expecting a double digit loss to a much better team. I don't think we stand a chance on Sunday.

This is a first for me because I truly believe we can beat anyone in the league when we play well but I don't see anyway we can beat the Seahawks who I consider the best team in the league.

I will watch on Sunday just as I always do but with tempered expectations. I picked Seattle in my NFL pickem which is the first time I've picked against the texans in three years.

Because what you're saying isn't particularly true. Matt's been spreading the ball around pretty good. Last year, he focused on Andre, but that was because everybody else was letting him down. Before that... when we had Walter, Anderson, & Jacoby, he spread the ball around really well, including OD & Arian.

This year, he's been spreading it around pretty well.

I still haven't seen enough of Seattle on the road to say they are the same team there as they are at home.

That's what stuck out to me too. Reminds me a lot of Baltimore of the last few years. Flacco was great at home, but mediocre to bad on the road.

They had 5 road losses last year, not including the playoff loss to the Falcons.

That's held to form this year with two home beatdowns of their opponent and a 12-7 win at Carolina.

I predict an ugly win. 16-10 Texans.

The way I understand the WCO to work is every play has a primary receiver, followed by option 2, 3, etc. I'm pretty sure AJ is the primary receiver on majority of the plays. I mean that would be the smart thing to do.

The Sideline View has a good video breakdown of how Schaub goes through his progressions.

09-27-2013, 03:56 PM
Texans 31 - Seahawks 10

Reasons:
I believe the Texans are usually strong after embarassing defeats. I don't know whether this is a slur on the coach for how the players are prepared, but there are night and day differences between the Texans team from the last few years when they are hungry and have a chip on their shoulder, to when they are coasting and expected to be the better team. So often (like in Week 1) the Texans are like a boxer who needs to get hit to bring them into a fight and light that fire.
The Seahawks, whilst a very good football team, are on the verge of unplayable at home, especially at the moment. We'll call it the Curse of Seattle (which has also recently plagued the Washington Huskies BTW). They struggled week 1 on the road, and face a far stronger team this week, with far more fire in their bellies than the Panthers did in their opening game.
Russell Wilson is one of the most promising QBs in the league, and when playing well, is a joy to watch. However, he is still a second year starter. He posted a home record last year of 17 TDs and 2 Ints (passer rating of 123.60), and on the road was 9 TDs for 8 Ints (passer rating of 83.1).

The Seahawks are a strong, strong team, but I think their playoff chances are hugely dependant on getting homefield advantage - they are just that good at home.

Excellent examples, TK. Missed it the first time around. The zebras are usually going to call a PI even if the DB only gives a quick glance back....then turns to the receiver and bumps him, in that he is trying to disrupt the path of the receiver rather than the path of the ball.

People in here are giving the Seahawks WAY too much credit, and the Texans very little.

The hawks are awesome at home, but for some reason mediocre on the road (at best). Last season, they were undefeated at home, but 3-5 on the road. They lost to teams like the Cardinals, Rams, Lions, and Dolphins on the road. This season has started out no different. They are looking like the best team in the league when at home, but struggled to beat the Panthers on the road. You can say they are a tale of two different teams.

The hawks will also play without 3/5th of their offensive line (not to mention two of them are Unger and Okung).

This game is going to be a low-scoring slugfest, both offenses will struggle to score... and unfortunately for us, this game may come down to which special teams plays better.

These are the keys to the Texans winning:
- Make our 'makeable' field goals. Every point will count in this game, and I predict Bullock will pull through.
- Punt coverage!!! Besides the one return for a TD, our punt coverage has been awesome (mainly due to Lechler). We can't give away any easy points, and also win the field position game.
- Don't turn the ball over. I know fans won't like it, but I'm predicting an extremely conservative game plan on offense. I'm seeing 20+ carries for Arian, and 15+ for Ben. We can't give up any easy points.
- Stop the big play on defense. Fortunately for us, with their OL woes, I think we'll be able to do this.

I'm predicting a rushing TD by Foster, and 3 FGs by Bullock. The Seahawks will be held to a big play TD, and 2 FGs.

It's going to be about mental toughness. Who can take a beating longer... who can keep up the longest. That's why we beat SanDiego & Tennessee. We played till the bell, never gave up. Against Balitmore, not so much. The pick 6 was like a shot to the gut, the punt returned for a TD, a hard right cross. The TD to open the half was like an upper cut. The first field goal in the 4th qtr... another body shot, the final field goal landed right on our chin.

We never really "gave up" but the fight was pretty one sided after half time.

Same thing happened in the divisional round vs New England. We're keeping our hands up (playing defense) but we've got to throw a few punches (offense) of our own.

I know. It's embarrasing.

It's more about how they feel about our team than yours. Think back to when Seneca Wallace was your starting QB... that's the kind of confidence some of us have in Schaub, then half of us never liked Kubiak & he soured on the other half.

Fact is that we're another team than the one that finished last season. A lot of the same players, a lot of the same problems, but a new team. These guys aren't 12-4 or 5-5 or any of that. They're 2-1 with a lot of issues to work out. Some of their plans didn't work out; Q, Brennan, Montgomery...... some aren't working as well as they had hoped; Reed, Newton, Reed, Foster

But there isn't a team in the league that is 100% perfect. Not now, not in week 16 & not Super Bowl week. There are other teams that appear to be handling their issues better than we are. There are other teams that appear to be handling their issues worse than we are.

I'd love to be one of those teams handling ourselves well, I'm upset that we aren't. As long as we've had this staff & this "system" you'd think we would. As much as we talk about our leadership... especially player leaders, we shouldn't be having these problems.

Anemic offensive performance of course, Scub throwing 2 picks and the defense will give up a TD drive in the first series of the second half. Defense of course doesn't force a turnover because the DB's don't locate the ball ever and they can't catch. Hero of the game will be Shane Lechler besides JJ who will get 2 sacks and swat 2 passes.

Texans play dumb ball at times. Sharpton's play is a good example. Kubiak needs a OC who calls the plays and Kubiak needs to get his head out of only being on one side of the ball during the game.

Texans play dumb ball at times. Sharpton's play is a good example. Kubiak needs a OC who calls the plays and Kubiak needs to get his head out of only being on one side of the ball during the game.

Unfortunately I don't think Kubiak would help much. He isn't anything more than an oc with a head coaching job.

After hearing all week(from Texans fans) how we were going to get blown out I guess an overtime loss is a positive statement.:thinking:

Some people will just never get it.

If you expect your team to lose each week, you can never be disappointed--only pleasantly surprised. Lesson from the 2010 season. :kitten:

I'm predicting a rushing TD by Foster, and 3 FGs by Bullock. The Seahawks will be held to a big play TD, and 2 FGs.

Texans 16
Seahawks 13

Close. You were just about a pick 6 away from nailing the prediction.

Schaub is our best option at QB, but one more pick 6 from Schaub this week and I am beating the "bench him" drum.

Snare drum? Kick drum?

They will say the Texans won in spite of Schaub and Kubiak. It's what they live for.

Or that they lost because of Schaubiak.

In the ten games after our 11-1 start of last season, we will be 4-6 (since the December 02 Titan victory) if we lose to the Seahawks.

See, that is the trend people are upset about. 2-2 is one thing, but this goes back a little further. The collapse at the end of the season continuing because of the same problems this season doesn't tend to foster optimism.
