Texans 24 Lions 16.

David Carr throwing to AJ without Dre Bly in the game.....24 points
No Charles Rogers leaving Roy Williams alone....16 points.
Not having to play 25 men in the box to stop LT.....priceless.

Texans 24 Lions 16.

David Carr throwing to AJ without Dre Bly in the game.....24 points
No Charles Rogers leaving Roy Williams alone....16 points.
Not having to play 25 men in the box to stop LT.....priceless.

Loss of Bly definitely hurts. But the Detroit Defense played very well, forcing 4 turnovers, holding Thomas Jones to 3 yards/carry, and sacking Grossman 3 times without even blitzing, picking him off twice and stripping the ball out of his hands. Lehman (a hated Sooner, I would imagine) forced a fumble as well, and Shaun Rogers blocked his 5th career FG in his 4th year, which was run back for a TD. It won't be as easy as it looks.

Charles Rogers out hurts but we have tremendous depth there, and we have yet to establish the run. We're deeper at WR and TE than you think, far deeper than you are at CB/SS/LB. So please, double up on Williams. Then Streets, Hakim, Alexander, KJ, and Sledge will be wide open. Considering your pass rush, and the fact that the Lions pass blocking is far superior to that of the Chargers, you're still in trouble there.

You can probably play an 8 man front against our run game, unless I see serious improvement. I'm not sure if it was KJ trying to be Barry Sanders too much (by that I mean too much E-W instead of N-S movement), or bad run blocking. Pinner seemed to do alright, so I'm still not sure. But neither are LT. Man that guy is the next Barry, Emmet, Payton, and Brown all rolled into one.

I think the difference will be you make more mistakes than we do, and Lions win a squeaker.

The Lions will win this one 28-14. Texans will struggle all game and score a late TD to make it respectable. Your young QB will struggle. Your run game will be shut down. KJ has his breakout game Sunday. ROY puts on a show for the local viewers back in Texas.

Our defense totally shuts you guys down! Joey wins the first round of the class of 2002 QB battle.

It going be to a long time before David cuts his hair!

We have always been 1-1 after week two and I really dont want to see that change so Texans win 34-28 in OT where AJ catches a TD pass to end the game and then promptly throws the ball into Charles Rogers hands, who is on the sideline watching. AJ then says "Why did the Lions pick you ahead of me???"

i'm not gonna make a prediction for this game...all i'm gonna say is this...this is the game of the year for us

carr vs harrington
johnson vs williams (be honest williams is the reciever casserly wanted from day one)
davis vs jones
young team vs young team

this is the game where we should put it all on the line and see which is better...hell we should be doing that every game but more this one

But can you explain why you think this will happen? Or are you just talking out of your blow-hole?

We are coming off a huge win for us and will carry the momentum into our seasom opener at home. For all our struggles the last few years we have always been very tough to beat at home. Our team grew up alot in that win at Chicago. You guys are starting some rookies in key positions and they will be experiencing their first taste of the NFL on the road. Our crowd and stadium is ver difficult for the visitors.

We also will have a much better showing on offense and will have a better game plan snce we now know Rogers won't be playing. Much of our passing games was planned around Rogers so when he went down the Team was stunned and it really took us 3 quarters to adjust, but we did and were able to put together a game winning drive for a TD.

Our rookies played pretty good for their first game, but should be much more comfortable now that they have gotten a little taste of live NFL action. Playing in soldier field is no piece of cake. KJ missed some huge holes running the ball and should have a breakout game. You saw ROY's catch and he will see more balls this week. He caught 4 passes for 64 yards by the way and got a pass interference in the endzone to setup a score too.

Our young LBs played very well. Lehman caused a huge fumble and our defense played very well causing 5 turnovers and getting 2 sacks.

Also I think the Bears have a very good defense and really don't think we will play too many teams with a better DL and group of LBs. They were really fast and blitzed almost every play. Our OL did a really good job only giving up 1 sack. We lost our best WR and CB during the first 2 series and still gutted out the win.

That is why I am optimistic!

24- 10 Houston.

I personally think our defense was embarrassed by the game last week and we will open it up more. I think we will have Glenn matched up on Williams all game long. IF NOT ... 24-14 houston ;)

I happen to think just th opposite. I think the Texans are gonna come in and look to avenge their horrible showing opening day and play an inspired game. Dont look past us, minus the turnovers, we proved that we are a force to be reckoned with on Offense. Had to eat alot of crow after last week but Im still confident in this week.

I too feel that the Texans will struggle in this game, forcing the issue to many times, trying to make up for this past week. But, someway, they will overcome the struggling, and squeek out a win. This will work in our favor, as the following week, a steller performance and bigtime upset! :soapbox:

With the last game still stinging, I think we will see the Texans get it together.. after they get done hitting themselves over the head all week long!
With the rookie players out there, and injured players coming back, I feel the chemistry needs to build.

This week we got beat by the worst team in football. Next we play the Lions, so they're the worst team in football, hehe. This week we lost to the worst team in football. Next week we will do the same. Sorry, I'm a realist (except for the worst team thing). DD will not fumble. He can't afford to because, even though he's definately and without question our best RB, his starting position is not set in stone. Carr will do well, but not much better. He might even have two more picks, but I'm only saying that out of respect for the opponent. Almost all of his passes will be caught (by somebody in an NFL uniform). Our defense, however, will be a problem. No pass rush. All day long. No pass rush. They will outpass us, but we will outrun them, slightly. They win the turnover battle 0-whatever (probably 2).

Our Defense will stink and we will lose this game 38 to 28. We will control the clock, because of DD and the opponent scoring on us quickly and relentlessly. Dang, I'm just glad we're not having to play Kansas City or Indianapolis. I haven't seen a good pass rush in 33 games and counting. I'm waiting. Jasin Babin will help us stop the run this year, but we need him to be a young Jevon Kearse. I say we switch to the 52 or just run the goal line defense on every play to a get a rush, if we even can, lol. After the first 3 games, this pass defense will be ranked below some of the College teams. :rollbaby:

Roy Williams gets a sore hammy early in the 2nd quarter and begs out of the game.

Texan O-line rolls over Rogers, Redding & the Lion front line.

Tony Hollings gets 10 touches.

Texans win turnover battle 3-1

I was so confident that we were going to beat San Diego. That loss really threw me. This is stuff that I study and read about - take my time with and try to find the ins and the outs of each team. I thought that week one was a sure win. We were better at nearly every position.

When we lost - I really had the wind knocked out of me. I've come to the conclusion that predictions are ultimately useless. No one knows. This Lions team is good. Their defense is solid and their offense is improving. I dont know - nor does anyone else know, just exactly what the score will be.

I do know this, if we continue to have 4 turnovers a game we will be picking first in the 2005 draft come next April.

I hope we play better.

I thought we both had young quaterbacks !?!?!?!? And are starting nose tackle should be back in, and we do have depth at CB and SS cause all the starters were hurt last season so they got plenty of playing time. And Sunday was a rare day for D.D he's not bound to fumble like that again, he is a very talented runner and should have a 125 yrd day atleast. And David Carr looked really sharp and those 2 ints werent really his fault. but i think it will be a close game i say Texans 24 Lions 17

09-14-2004, 12:18 PM
well Carr's 2 int's were his fault. tThe chargers made it his fault by puttin the pressure on. Reall yhe should have had 3 int's i'm upset that sammy davis didnt catch that ball in the back of the end zone. my prediction is 27-21 texans because the lions just arent good.

My whole family is from El Campo. Dad's side is the Michaelsen's and Mom's is the Smith's (Cousin Barry pitched on El Campo's State Champion Baseball Team years ago). In fact DAd's side has Smith's on it, but we're not rednecks if you know what I mean. Also several old high friends use to coach at El Campo, don't know if they are still there.

Only one of Carr's int's was his fault. The other was batted in the air 60 feet and fielded like a punt. I cant really find fault in that. As for the third interception that you wanted I think that your being upset for silly reasons. I am upset that we fumbled 2 times, had 4 total turnovers, had very big plays called back due to penalties, had a questionable touchdown called against us, didn't intercept when we should have, and ultimately lost a football game to a team that eveyone, including the neighbors dog, thought we would win except for some Charger fans.

I hope that your prediction for next week is correct. In fact I hope it is more like 35-7 but that would be pie in the sky.

If the defensive line of the Texans is not able to put pressure on the QB against a less than stellar offensive line in this game then Houston will defintally need to consider they're options in next years draft. Hopefully the dl prevails though...and lets see some blitz packages thrown the Lions way. Keep an already unstable offensive team more off balance.

ok, did you ACTUALLY even watch Carr play? i really doubt he is going to have 2 more interceptions.....carr isnt that bad, man he has improved, how many times have you heard of carr throwing for 75% comp? ? ? this is his year mark my words he aint gonna have 2 picks next week

Yes, I watched the game, except for the 1st quarter, because I goofed and got the time off of the Pigskin Pick'em site (EST). I still think he'll have one that is his fault and one that is just from pressing to score when we're behind in the fourth. Other than that, he will have a real good game.

Truth is, I don't think the NFL is at all predictable anymore, unless you're just picking the winner in a Patriots vs. Cardinals game, or something. The Texans could win the next 2 in a row. Who knows? And picking the actuall score is impossible. I just like to make my predictions for fun.

Like I said, you don't know what you're talking about. Where is this 'common knowledge' coming from? Yes they are mediocre at run blocking, but they are excellent at pass blocking. Even the announcers say that, and they are usually clueless. Don't try and push your opinion as 'common knowledge.'

BTW- You didn't offend me, and I have been nothing more than polite on this board, but no one has made an obviously wrong statement like that until now. But please, inform me, what are the O-linemen names, their tendencies, and why they are weak.

Oh, and that statement directly relates to this game, which is Texans football, I was just correcting you so you don't let everyone believe that the Texans D-line will dominate the 'poor' O-line of the Lions. How many times has Harrington been sacked in the past 2 years? And no, I'm not forgetting about the lack of a run game (but no quality RB's, playing from behind, and no passing game didn't help either).

Not trying to step on any toes...like I have said the Lions have 3 essentials in QB, WR, and HB...now they just need to build up the line. It's just my opinion, your's may differ but Im not going to wrestle with you over this issue.
yeah you have no clue wha you are talking about... ESPN ranked the Lions the 12th O-Line in the NFL and the Texans 17..

Blake

Like I said, you don't know what you're talking about. Where is this 'common knowledge' coming from? Yes they are mediocre at run blocking, but they are excellent at pass blocking. Even the announcers say that, and they are usually clueless. Don't try and push your opinion as 'common knowledge.'

BTW- You didn't offend me, and I have been nothing more than polite on this board, but no one has made an obviously wrong statement like that until now. But please, inform me, what are the O-linemen names, their tendencies, and why they are weak.

Oh, and that statement directly relates to this game, which is Texans football, I was just correcting you so you don't let everyone believe that the Texans D-line will dominate the 'poor' O-line of the Lions. How many times has Harrington been sacked in the past 2 years? And no, I'm not forgetting about the lack of a run game (but no quality RB's, playing from behind, and no passing game didn't help either).


The reason Kevin Jones had difficulty picking up yards the other night was because of the offensive line. 36 yards rushing in all, and this is against the Bears...argubaly one of the worst teams in the NFL. You cant have a one dimensional O-line and expect to win. Yea, yea...you won the other night...but against the Bears.

Announcers were kissing Quincy Carters butt all year long lastyear, where is he now. :rolleyes: The announcers really know no more than me and you and Im sure the game was locally televised resulting in some praise for the Lions.

Other than that I dont claim to know much more about the Lions O-line then what I have been told or have read, nor will I try to. It seems everyone I know agrees that the offensive line for Detroit is poor and the game against Chicago kind of highlights this point. Kevin Jones should of had much more than 36 yards in the game, a talented running back like that would of atleast broke 50 yards if blocking upfront was better.

Sorry my opinions are not yours but this is what I think, Im not biased against the Lions or anything of that nature. But if you say you've been nothing but polite on these boards then continue to show it by throwing your arrogance towards me out the window. Anyways, you can throw out more points and prove me wrong untill your fingers break from all that typing but Im here for casual and friendly conversations...not debates. If my opinion struck a debate then it was unintentional. Im sure your much more well informed on the Lions then I am so you can have the last word and show your expertise on the subject....however this argument is so trivial to me.

The Lion's line is built to protect the passer. They are excellent pass-blockers and subpar run blockers. They may end up being a team that sets up the run with the pass (like New England).

Keep bringin' it, Blake. I may not agree with everything you post, but it's interesting to read posts from an outside perspective...you're one of the VERY few Cowboy fans around here who post stuff worth reading.

My predictions:

* Texans 26, Lions 24.

* Both teams have 2 INTs and at least 7 penalties.

* AJ gets his first receiving TD.

* CBS announcers will make at least one stupid joke about "Carr driving into Ford Field," or something like that.

Bring on Sunday! This'll be a great game.

I like Houston in this one 24-9 shutting down Kevin Jones and keeping the youngster Harrington under constant pressure. Roy Williams will perform well in the game but no scores. Andre Johnson and Jabar Gaffney both score a TD, Domanick holds on to the football this game and get the third TD. The lone field goal will be due to a penalty plagued drive after getting into the RedZone.

The Lion's line is built to protect the passer. They are excellent pass-blockers and subpar run blockers. They may end up being a team that sets up the run with the pass (like New England).
the only O-lineman on the Lions O-Line that is a better passblocker then he is a run blocker is Jeff Backus, who is still a really good run blocker... the Lions do have a good runblocking line...
Reasons why Jones only rushed for 36 yards:
1. Jones himself... the tried to do to much... what i mean by this, there would be a hole where he could gain 4 yards, but tried to get to the outside to try and get more yards and would get stopped at the line...

2. Coaching... they tried running him to the outside all day where he never had any success and ran very little inside where they were having pretty good success...

3. The O-Line doesnt get off scott free, but they did a pretty good job. i saw some blocks that should have been made but werent, but not many...

4. The Bears have one of the best front 7 in the league... the WLB is weak, (Joe Odom)and one of the Bears DTs is weak(Alfonso Boone), but the rest is ROCK solid... Urlacher at MLB, Lance Briggs who is proving to be a force at SLB, Adawale Ogunleye, the AFC sack leader last year at LDE, Tommie Harris, a very talented DT who looked good vs the Lions and Alex Brown who was pretty good last year...

Did you watch the game?


The announcers really know no more than me and you and Im sure the game was locally televised resulting in some praise for the Lions.
I wouldn't know about local announcers, I'm in Houston, hence, HoustonLionsFan (plus look ^^^)

Other than that I dont claim to know much more about the Lions O-line then what I have been told or have read
Wow, way to form your 'own' opinions

nor will I try to
What an open mind you have. That's the way to form opinions, ignorance


It seems everyone I know agrees that the offensive line for Detroit is poor
Well, it would seem that that 'everyone' is as uneducated/ignorant as you.

...and the game against Chicago kind of highlights this point.
Again, did you watch the game? Or are you talking out cho *** again?

Kevin Jones should of had much more than 36 yards in the game
Yeah, if he would have hit the right holes, he would have. What about Pinner, 5 for 21, and Bryson, 3 for 18. Oh that's right, you wouldn't know because it's easier to form opinions without the facts (huh?)


...a talented running back like that would of atleast broke 50 yards if blocking upfront was better
Huh, you're wrong again. See above

Sorry my opinions are not yours but this is what I think
That's fine, I was trying to help you form a more educated opinion, not an ignorant one


Im not biased against the Lions or anything of that nature
Never said you were

But if you say you've been nothing but polite on these boards then continue to show it by throwing your arrogance towards me out the window
When have I not been polite? And arrogance is the wrong word, sarcastic is probably closer.

If my opinion struck a debate then it was unintentional
It has only turned into a 'debate' because you refused to listen to someone more informed than yourself about a subject, presented in an objective way, to state your 'own' ignorant opinion.

Im sure your much more well informed on the Lions then I am
Yes, so why are you not listening? Everyone else on the board asked question and we had nice conversations, you made a false statement about something you know nothing about and won't listen to people who do. Ignorant and stubborn, sheesh.

so you can have the last word
No, please, make us more stupid with 'your' opinions (but you better go talk to 'everyone' first)

however this argument is so trivial to me.
WOW, Holier than thou, I guess it is true, Ignnorance is Bliss

This will work in our favor, as the following week, a steller performance and bigtime upset! :soapbox:

Nothing anyone says, could make me change my mind about Rogers... he was a better college player and a better pro prospect, IMO... even if the Lions look stupid right now for not drafting AJ, at the time Rogers was the right choice...

chicagotexan
09-15-2004, 10:51 AM
He was the right choice not only because he was a good prospect, but I'm sure it helped attract more fans knowing that they picked a local boy. Too bad he's frail. I'm glad Detroit took him. Now as far as the Detroit game, I was very dissapointed in the loss to SD, but if we lose to Det then I'll panic. I'm not expecting playoffs, but taking a step forward means beating teams that we should beat. Det is shorthanded with Rogers out and if we can't take advantage of that we are in trouble.

What's not "consistent" about that? Just because the Bears are a weaker team doesn't mean they're an automatic win, especially at home. I can certainly understand some differences of opinion on who will win, even among Texan homers.

Right now we have zero rush on the QB. Harrington will pick us apart far better than Brees. Their receivers and backs will kill us. Sorry, but until the defense shows something, I think we are in for a big let down. Palmer will stay conservative and we will be very inefficient. Detroit 48 Texans 10.

Right now we have zero rush on the QB. Harrington will pick us apart far better than Brees. Their receivers and backs will kill us. Sorry, but until the defense shows something, I think we are in for a big let down. Palmer will stay conservative and we will be very inefficient. Detroit 48 Texans 10.
Holy ****... it SOUNDS JUST LIKE THE LIONS... no pass rush, questions on defense, playing very conservative... it seem like the Lions and Texans have been each others shadow the past 3 years...

No pass rush? 3 sacks, 10 hurries, forced fumble on the QB in the pocket. All without blitzing. 4 forced turnovers. What questions are there on defense?

Conservative offensive play calling is where you are right. We need to open it up more.

And who are these playmakers of yours? The one with the broken collarbone doesnt count by the way...

only because Chicago's receivers are terrible, and the rookie QB couldnt get rid of the ball fast enough... 75% of the plays Rex had all day to throw... i saw maybe 3 or 4 good plays where the Lions got a good pass rush...

Your only playmaker is Roy Williams, the guy is a stud. But Harrington and Jones AREN'T. 2.6 ypc and 55% completions isn't exactly lighting up defenses nowdays.

Sorry Diehard, it wasn't smack. Just a Cowboy fan that didn't know what he was talking about and to stubborn to listen to a mostly-unbiased breakdown.

And were can we find one who is the opposite, excluding Huge and an extreme few others. :popcorn:

The Lions actually have A LOT of guys who are playmakers, (aka. players who don't just play their position adequately, but occationaly light up the field.) That was The Bears biggest problem last weekend - Lots of solid players who did a good job and beat us statisticly, but none of them could stand out by making a big play.

The Texans are solid and its going to be a good game. We're going to be forced to make our own luck again probably, and if we can't you guys will probably pull it off. We've won 4 of our last 6 games though, and its mostly due to average players just being able to make things happen. The Lions have been a really exciting team to watch lately.

in all honesty, the Texan fan is right... and i dont agree with your definition of 'playmaker'... the Lions top 3 play makers are hurt(Bly, Bailey, Rogers)...
IMO Williams is our only play maker... but i also think that these fans perception of the Harrington and Jones are wrong... Harringtons WRs had i think 7 dropped passes, i think 3 dropped passes would be average for a game. and for Jones, it seemed like the Bears were plotting only to stop the run and had 8 men in the box at all times. not to mention by seasons end i think chicago will have a top 5 front 7 in the league... hence KJ 37 yard 2.2 YPC day...
