If somebody-anybody-doesn't get the axe after this game, I'll have lost all respect for Bob McNair. I don't care if the players are the ones making the mistakes, the coaches are ultimately responsible. They make me sick.

This place is gonna light up like Lawrence Taylor's crack pipe after this game. But then again this game may make a lot of folks not give a damn.

LOL, take it easy on my man LT.

Nice job letting 4 seconds run off the clock before you figured out how to put your 2 hands together and make that tricky little time out signal.

If Schaub wins this game, then the Sage/Schaub debate is OVER.
If he throws a pick, then the conversation starts again.

I've never seen a team so regularly burn 10 seconds off the clock before deciding to call a timeout when they are in a race to come from behind.

PapaL

Why on earth didn't Miami go for 2? The difference between being up by 4 or 5 in this situation is virtually nil.

Right now they are up by 5; if they had gone for and gotten the 2pt they would be up by 6.

Right now if we score we win w/o the extra point. Up by 6 we would HAVE to make the XP.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
10-12-2008, 02:57 PM

before we hurt ourselves patting each other on the back. This was an ugly win. I am more than happy that we won. But we diserved this one as much as Indy did last week. He have some serious issues still.

A win is a win. Last week was an good-looking loss. I'd take an ugly win anytime.

A win is a win. Lets take this momentum into next week and get another. I'd rather win ugly than lose pretty. Talk to the Baltimore Ravens. All they did in 2000 was win ugly all season--all the way to their superbowl win.

protect the ball and win more games please. thank you carry on

They made stops on third downs they had the chance to go ahead... they didnt and dolphins came back. 2-7 on third downs I think.


This game better be on nfl replay...after last week being shown three times

I don't agree. We SHOULD have routed Miami. Enjoy the win a little bit for crying out loud. I'm tired of the umbrella I've need for the entire season.

How do you figure that? With the exception of Indy's opening drive and their late fourth quarter drive to make it a ten-point game, the Texans dictated the game to the Colts, put pressure on Manning, and moved the ball at will.

Today the Texans marched down the field and converted two fourth downs on the way to the winning touchdown, after fumbling away what would've been a game-ending INT!

And you want to compare our win with Indy's last week? No way no how. We gave that game away. We took this one from Miami.

Did not think about this until after the game, but we won the game despite being -3 in turnovers. Thats pretty damn insane! Turnovers usually determine the outcome of the game, but in this case we actually pulled the win from Miami. Also, we only gave up one sack (pr. NFL.com).

Not bad at all!

Love the 'Roxbury' sack that Bulman, Okoye, and Mario gave Pennington on that play.

Just take a knee on the PAT. It's irrelevant.

I don't understand why we ran a play after the TD. I think it was a horrible call by Kubiak. We're up by 1 with the game all but won. An extra point gets us up by 2, a 2 pt conversion gets us up by 3. With 3 seconds left, miami doesn't have any time to do anything. the only way they can score is by kick off return or a hail mary/gadget play. Either way they would win the game.

The only way they would be able to kick a field goal is if we kicked it out of bounds and then committed multiple penalties over and over. But likelihood that Miami could block the extra point or return a fumble for 2 pts is FAR greater than this miracle field goal scenario.

Horrible and unnecessary call by shanny/kubiak.

You need to revisit the NFL rulebook before you go bashing Kubiak for that call. The reason he went for the two-point conversion is two-fold-- a) if you make it, a FG won't beat you and 2) there is NO RISK!!

The PAT is an untimed down and cannot be returned for points.

This is really simple:

With the 2 seconds left and the Dolphins had the ball:

If they threw downfield, let's say to the 30, and there was a pass interference call, the Dolphins could have kicked a field goal since the game cannot end on a defensive penalty.

So we wanted a 3 point lead for this reason. Not likely, but a 1 point win versus a 2 point win doesn't really matter...

Good call in my opinion.

Mailman
10-12-2008, 08:41 PM
Exactly right, but I think ziggy and miss texan misunderstand the rule. There was no way for the Texans to simply take a knee and run out the clock. The down is untimed and the offense has to either kick the PAT or go for two. If you're up by one, of course you go for two.

I understand it's untimed but i was under the impression it can be returned for points. only its worth 2 points max.

that's a really good point and the easiest explanation. i forgot in the pros that a pass interference is at the spot of the foul. there would be no time left but miami would still have 1 play left. that's the most likely scenario. ;) gracias... it was a good call!

wrong. i understand that... it's not about time management. it's about preventing an unnecessary turnover. They intercept it and return it for 2 points... they basically win the game. so you run the ball to minimize that risk. schaub/slaton fumble the handoff, porter returns it for 2 points and they basically win. it has nothing to do with running time off b/c the clock is dead. its about preventing an unnecessary risk. hence, you take a knee... then kickoff with a guaranteed 1 pt lead. you just have to hope you can stop a kickoff return or a hail mary/gadget play.

It's the only call in that situation. Honestly, it's so straightforward that it doesn't really deserve comment either way. The dumb move would've been kicking the PAT because it gives you no advantage at all.

Nice to get the first win under the belt. It nearly caused me to have a heart attack, but fortunately I made it through. Mad props to Matt Schaub, the true starting qb of the Houston Texans. Made some really bad throws early in the game but did what he needed to do win us the game. Andre Johnson had another monster game but also had a monster fumble. Kevin Walter, OD, Slaton, Green, the defense, and Jacoby Jones were all big players. We made a TON of mistakes and nearly resulted in another epic loss, but we made it out today. Guys need to work on holding on to the ball!!!! Anyway, Go Texans and let's make it two in a row.

I get it. I thought you could return an interception and get 2 points. I didn't realize that there are absolutely no consequences for the offense if they turn it over. I was asking yall about that situation and youve answered it. No need to get all fired up bud. but thanks for the clarification:)

it was an exciting game, i'm so glad we finally got a W. I'm really happy Schaub got to lead the team on the drive at the end and get the TD himself. I was disappointed the fans were chanting for Sage earlier in the game. I thought it was funny that Daniels was telling the fans to shut up.
