Then I think its time we sport the "Fire Smith" pink soap avatars. I'm tired of opposing offense's having their way with our defense. Their defense is gonna put a hurting on our offense and I dont expect us to score over 20 points. But I do expect our defense to do the same to their offense and I do expect the Texans to win the turnover battle and subsequently win a hard fought defensive football game with opportunistic big plays from our big time players (Mario, AJ, DeMeco, KRIS BROWN...) to provide us with the W on Sunday. :texflag:

To recap however, if Flacco looks like Montana its pink soap time for Richard Smith.

Flacco was my top QB prospect in the last draft but only after a couple years of development. Whereas Matt Ryan was ready made, in the shawdows of Tom Brady. Flacco is big & has a strong arm, think of Roethlisberger with better mobility & all Ben did was win a Superbowl his rookie year.

As a side note remember Baltimore traded up- with the Houston Texans to select Joe with the 18th overall pick, how ironic :shades:

Flacco won't be as good as either of them, i mean im a fan but i expect his first couple of seasons to be fairly typical of big arm QBs now. they can bomb it but they get way to aggressive and it takes a couple years to get the accuracy down well enough to actually be an effective signal caller.

And the Texans got Steve Slaton...hopefully, the irony is in our favor after he puts up 100+ rushing and a couple of TD's.

Sure, he scored a TD using his feet, but his speed looked very Bradyesque. Maybe he just has very long legs, but everytime I see the replay it reminds me of the footage of Brady's 40 yard dash at the combine. LOL!

Ha ha. Welcome Daravenator. All of these comparisons stem from the fact that the Texans have made some so-so and not so good QBs look like Pro Bowlers in the past. We're just having a little fun with it instead of being down. Course if Flacco does look like Joe, then the mood here will change drastically...ha ha

I think Flacco has the skills, and he certainly seems to have that "something" that seperates a mediocre QB from a good one. But this is only his second game. Cincy had no NFL tape to watch on him other than pre-season. The Texans will be able to watch last week's Ravens game and see what Joe does or doesn't do and how to react to it.

This should be a good game, no matter what.

Richard Smith sucks......he had a entire offseason to look at tape on Big Ben and Ben still only had one incomplete pass.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't expect Houston to beat the Steelers or shut down Ben, but c'mon.....offer up a defensive gameplan that's offers more than just Pittsburgh's 5th preseason opponent.

Never ever underestimate the soft prevent defense that Richard Smith throws out on the field. I think Ravens are going to win this game and yes......if that happens, because our defense can't get a rookie QB off the field, it's time to break out the pink soap....so all of you "photoshop experts" go ahead and start working on it.

I mean, I'm sorry if I'm no longer "rah rah, everything is fine, delusional Texan fan". :chickendance:

When all you have watched is crap, then it's time to call it crap, until you start seeing something to suggest otherwise. I lost the blind faith about 3 seasons ago.....I now just make my predictions on stuff that's based on reality, you know....what I actually see on Sundays with my own eyes and as of right now, this team isn't showing me anything. Last Sunday was one of the most lopsided games in their entire franchise's history..(and with the Capers years...that's saying something)....domination in every aspect of the game. Other than the Rams or Bengals, there probably wasn't another NFL team that we could've beaten with our play last week.

Don't believe that our team are as awful as some are making out, we got beaten badly by a better team, but I would be shocked if we didn't put in an above average effort against your Ravens.

One area of concern for most is the run defense, how have McGahee and Rice looked so far?

Lets put it this way......if the Texans don't beat the Ravens in their home opener, the sky may not be falling, but it sure as hell will be cracked.

In this division we can't afford to lose "winnable" games (no offense Ravens fan....but when you look at our schedule this is one of the most "winnable" games for quite a while).

From what I've seen on other boards (and this might not be true of all boards) but if the team has a successful history and is still doing quite well, the folks are hard asses and let you know it. Those with teams not doing so well are generally more inclined to actually talk football with you.

Rice looks pretty good, but either he needs new shooz or the turf was just slippery to him and him only, as he lost his footing quite a bit against the Bengals. McGahee was able to play, but Harbaugh sat him out due to not practicing much after his knee surgery. But the news is that after watching Rice and McClain smash the ball down the Bengal's throats in the 4th quarter last week, he decided he needed to start practicing harder. He only has one game against the Texans, with 117 yards on 22 carries.

I don't know a ton about McClain (who does?). But at 6' 0" and 260 lbs., he appears to be a real bruiser out of the backfield. The kind of FB that can carry 5-6 tacklers while gaining 7-8 yards a carry with 12 minutes left on the game clock. If the Ravens have a small lead to protect, he will be the one getting the ball.

Well, you have to remember the history between Baltimore and Indy, too. We didn't take too kindly to our team leaving town in the middle of a blizzard and then having Tagliabue fist us out of a team for 13 years......all the while watching people sitting in the Hoosierdome clapping like they were at a grade school play instead of a NFL game and telling everyone how great their "old" quarterback Johnny Unitas was.

That Jackass actually got upset, because "Houston football" fans (it doesn't matter if the team moved....he played for this city) don't acknowledge Earl Campbell as a Tenn. Titan.

Hell even Earl doesn't acknewledge himself as a Tenn. Titan. The tried to honor him a few years back and he flat denied it and told them......"I wasn't a Tenn. Titan, I was a Houston Oiler".

Anytime a team leaves a city they should automatically leave the history (and name) with that city.....like what happened with the Browns and with the Seattle Sonics (yes whenever Seattle gets a team back, they've already worked out a agreement to get their name and records back)

If the NFL actually forced this on teams...not only would Cleveland still have the Browns (like they do), but

Baltimore would still have the Colts
and
Houston would still have the Oilers...

Tenn. and Indy, would be the ones forced to start up a new history from scratch.

You are dead right. Take the team but leave the name and the history. Pastorini certainly wasn't no damned Titan!

He started his NFL career going 5-3, which was third-best in NFL history for a rookie QB (before he was injured). In his first NFL game (2003 against the Steelers) he went 22-43 for 152 yards with one TD and one INT.

Boller is a serviceable QB, but in the lng run, he doesn't appear to have what it takes to carry a team to a championship.
