I think that the game against Miami this weekend, we will finally see a sack from Mario. I may be mistaken, but I do believe this will be the game.

Why? Cause Miami has the "WORST" O-Line in the NFL right now. Mario is due.. If it doesn't happen this Sunday, then it may not happen till we play the Titans...

Time for a "Sack Attack"... :chicken:


The reason for the warning, it may not be suitable for young viewers, LOL. Go Texans...

This is definetly the game where Mario will pick up his first sack. The Dolphins O line is worse than ours....which feels great to say and now that Kubiak called Mario out he will want to prove himself.

yeah our line is abysmal. not just for the pass, either. don't expect ronnie brown to have a big day on the ground. he'll have a huge run here and there, and he'll make some defenders look ridiculous with a catch out of the flats, but overall it'll be an ugly offensive performance. unless of course mike mularkey calls a decent game, which no one is anticipating.

...uh-oh, look out! You may have jinxed us--anytime the Texans play anyone that is the worse at 'something,' we make them -out of the clear blue-- 'cured.' However, most of the time those 'results from heaven' only last until their next game...

Aint that the TRUTH. We need to create pressure, if not Culpepper will look like MVP runner up from a few years ago. I'm thinking Wes Welker is going to have a big day against us.

The year when Moss was injured, Culpepper did awesome without him. Granted, that was seven games, two years ago, but still, it happened. I'm not writing him off.

I still think we can win, and I think Mario's gonna come out a little stronger than he has in past games.

in 2004 he posted his best QB rating and completion percentage without moss. moss isn't his problem.

Ronnie Brown is the 10th highest scoring RB in my FF league, he must be doing something right.

He is ahead of Egde, Tiki, S Jackson, JJ, A. Green etc.

Also Pepper has scored more points than Brunell and look how good we made Brunell look.

Until this team proves something on the field I will not be a believer.

As much as I am a fan of the Texans, I am also a fan of the Dolphins ( I grew up in Miami watchin Dan Marino). I hope this would be the game that they finally allow Joey Harrington to play. I was upset when I heard the dolphins were getting Culpepper. Harrington might just be the answer for them.

don't get me wrong, ronnie brown will kill you if you give him the chance. he's by far our best player on offense right now. well, maybe wes welker is...anyway, he catches everything thrown his way, and despite the horrible line, he'll get the tough yards with 4 or 5 guys wrapped up on him. he's a beast. but...he won't have a high average and he won't score unless we're at the goal line.

but don't let numbers fool you, culpepper hasn't had a good year at all.

no no no no no no no. harrington will be far worse. at least culpepper is completing over 60% of his passes, despite the horrid line play and bad decisions. harrington has never hit 60% in his career. plus he's more immobile than culpepper. there's no reason at all to think harrington would be any better.

cleo lemon is a better fit for the offense than harrington.

I guess I'm just interested to see a game of David Carr vs Joey Harrington.

Oh yeah, and from the games I have been able to see of the Dolphins, Wes Welker has definitely impressed me. He's going to be pretty good.

Texans_Chick
09-29-2006, 10:04 AM
In last week's Dolphins-Titans game, all 5 sacks were allowed by the Dolphin guards, one being a replacement for the replacement of the starter, Seth McKinney.

In all of the Dolphin's sacks, 5 were on Culpepper not getting the ball off.

More on the Dolphin sack stuff, check out this link:

"Mario Sacks or Texans Wins: Which Number is Higher?" (http://texans.aolsportsblog.com/2006/09/28/mario-sacks-or-texans-wins-which-number-is-higher/)

That title is cribbed by a PTI segment with that name. sigh.

It will be interesting to see what the Texans defense will look like on Sunday. On one hand, given the to date performance, part of me expects more of the same. On the other hand, I want to see if there were any changes made that can show up on the field that quickly in a positive way.

On the fly changes are hard to do. So much of athletic performance is confidence in what you are doing, and sometimes it is hard to change up a bunch of stuff and get those changes to stick in a short period of time and not have the changes result in something worse.

Example 1 A. Every time I get a golf lesson, my game gets worse, at least in the short term. I get thinking too much in my head of what I am supposed to be doing, instead of just hitting the ball. You'd think the game of golf would be easy cuz it's quiet, the dang ball is just sitting there and all, but it is maddening how you can play really well one week, and then play like you have never picked up a club.

I've been to some lessons where the instructor were so bad, I just had to ignore everything I was taught by that guy and go back to what I was doing. (I consulted with others who told me what he was teaching me was crap). There have been other lessons that took longer to implement, but once I did them, it was all good.

It will be interesting to see whether the adjustments they make on Sunday make things worse or better short term. You would think it couldn't get any worse given how things are, but you would be wrong.

It can always get worse. -Signed Houston Texans fan

I have to admit, I would like to see that game as well. I never really want to call anyone a total bust until he gets out of the league, so until then I still have hope for Harrington.

Please re-read what I wrote.

In LAST WEEK'S game, all the sacks faults were on the Oline, specifically the guards.

In ALL of the Dolphin games, 5 out of the 16 sacks were Culpeppers fault.

I just hope we take advantage of his presence this time, In the Washington game Mario had a lot of double and tripple teaming. But since we brought no blitz, it didn't matter..... Bring the blitzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!

At least someone on the team can get a sack, but if we're not trying to get one, we won't.

I hate to say it but I didn't see much double and triple teaming against Washington.

Samuels and Jansen are great tackles but Mario needs to learn some moves. The ol' bull rush ain't what it was at NcSt.

????? Not sure what you mean.

I was watching him for a lot of the game through binoculars. I did not see him every down but I saw a lot of double teaming and sometimes another player would join the group. I am not saying that he was playing well and needed to be double teamed. But on a lot of plays they were doing it. That means on those plays there was a missed blitz oppertunity.

09-29-2006, 02:57 PM
its not so much Mario is double teamed it just appears such because he is bull rushing his man into the pile then getting tangled up with the guard and center. Mario looks like a natural tackle, I wonder if the Texans could now run the 3-4 with Payne as NT, Weaver strong side & :fireball: weakside.

the LB's would be Demeco weakside coming over the top behind Mario, Orr & Greenwood inside & Babin strongside OLB. just a thought :lightbulb:

????? Not sure what you mean. Lance Zerlein had a hilarious skit centering on Mario's comments concerning double and triple teams (his communist network stuff).....I've watched him closely myself and he isn't doubled any more than Payne or TJ or Babin. 5 linemen plus a TE and a back on 4 rushers = doubling the ends at least on occasion. Based on my long time observations as a NFL fan he hasn't been singled out and doubled as if he was a big threat.

Did't hear the skit, I'll look for it on the web... I was referring to a situation when a defender has 2 blockers both engaged with him at the same time. Not when the offense lines up with the line stacked to his side. and not because he is such a threat to them that they have no choice. I guess I should have said He was "blocked by more than one player at a time" instead of he was "Double teamed".

Either way it has the same result... One less blocker on offense somwhere on the line. Which allows for a more effective blitz. If we would bring more than just three linemen and one underachieving first round draft pick we would have been way more effective.

I would prefer to think of it as "adjustment on the run" also tongue & cheek because of the defensive scheme change after 4 years of running the 3-4. Frankly we have the personel for a 3-4 over a 4-3 starting with NT Seth Payne. At least as a DT in that scheme Mario would get the double teams alot of folks claim is bogging him down & overcome it to actually pressure the QB :rofl:

I'm on board with this. Demeeco is having great problems one on one at the point of attack. He's great sideline to sideline. However, it shoud be perfectly clear after three games....he is out of position on this defense. He cannot take on nfl caliber gaurds and centers.

My big problem is Mario's hand play or lack there of. It seems like as big as he is he could get a little seperaton after initial contact. he is so engulfed by the lineman blocking him, he cannot see the ball. Right now he is a 299 pound pillow. Once there is inital contact, he is locked in a death grip with them and can't shake lose. Much less make a move.

If it is the guard's fault, or Culpepper's or whatever, the optimistist in me wants Mario to get 2 or 3 stops behind the line this week and get it in his head that he can play at the pro level. May be what it takes to turn him around.
