We played them pretty good the last time, and that was in their stadium. We are a better team now and this is a home game. But as we all know, it all depends on which Texans team shows up and whether or not they remembered to wash the bacon grease off their hands before hitting the field.

I didn't think they were a good team when they beat us at their place - but they look like a daunting prospect right now. They've gained in confidence and found a reliable quarterback and a successful system. I don't think they're good enough to get to the super-bowl, but I think they're consistent enough to handle our turn-over-happy team.

Why would we want to win that way? When we win, & we will win, I want us to have beaten the best they had to throw at us. The Texans are really starting to believe in themselves. Earlier in the year, 4 turnovers would've caused them to close up shop & mail the rest of it in. They didn't do that today. They're getting there.

the texans will feel goo coming back home and playing in the heat

I'm very sorry to say that I do not think that our team is not quite good enough yet to beat the Tacks starters we're close though maybe next season and would have a much better shot at winning on Sunday if their starters did not play JMO though. I do hope that I am wrong though. That'd be very nice.

Really?
About the only two things I see in common with the tacks is an explosive rookie running back, and a DE that can rush the QB.
They've got no receivers to speak of, and no tight end, but those are some of the better players on our entire team.
They have a bruising defense, and we have a defense with no identity.
We pass to set up the run, and they run to set up the run, and occasionally pass because, hey we're paying the QB, so let him earn a nickle...
Sorry, I see no mirror image... unless I happened to be in the fun house at the carnival and it's one of those freaky, distorted mirrors...

12-08-2008, 03:16 PM
Earlier in the year the game was close until the end, and we blew it. That was when the defense was playing soft. Know that Richards Smith is under fire, he's letting the dogs loose and the defense is playing tough.

Also our offense has been getting better and better. (Minus the Turnovers) It seems like the ZBS is really starting to click.

I think this one should be interesting!!!!!!!!

We have a chance.

I don't think it would be luck. If you guys can stop the run and then get consistent pressure on Collins without blitzing then its very possible. I say pressure without plitzing because Collins will pick you apart if you bring eight or nine guys in the box.

Look at the difference between the Bears and Jets games. Chicago loaded the box, stopped the run and blitzed, but still didn't get consistent pressure so Collins picked them apart off of 41 passes. The Jets, however, stopped the run without loading the box and got pressure (though few sacks) consistently and threw us off our game offensively. Then, the defense was on the field too long and Favre tore it up. Bad formula for Titans success.

If you guys can do that then yea its very possible, but I wouldn't count on luck.

I hate to sound negative, BUT, the Titans have a chance of getting two TDs off Reeves alone! JJ will cough up another one. IF our mediocre players don't step it up and play on an ELITE level, we will get stomped. I'm just not sure how much more my old ticker can take of JJ!!

We're going to win this game.

Remember that with 5 minutes and change, I predicted that we would have a Kris Brown field goal attempt? I didn't commit to if he would make it or not...and then before he came on the field, I said "He's going to make it."

I have that same feeling. The timing is right: End of the year, the game is in our house, and the Titans have locked up their playoff position. Steve Slaton is going to shine. We're going to race out to a big lead, and the crowd will be electric.

We're going to win. Tack fans will be kind, there will be "congratulations" thrown our way due to how happy they are about being where they are vs. where we are. It will be a "meh" reaction out of them.

That is not entirely accurate. They have locked up the division and a first round by but not home field for the AFC Championship game. I think we have a decent shot to beat them but they will have motivation for playoff seeding.

Sure, there's still the issue of home-field advantage.

For the Titans, getting the first round bye is enough of a reward to cause them to stumble. This Titans team has played under the radar all season. Let's see how they fare now that they have a bye locked up and are sitting pretty.

They're not going to beat us. I didn't have this feeling in the first game this year. Things have lined up nicely for this Sunday's game.

It's going to happen.

I kept saying during yesterday's game: "If Steve Slaton goes off today, he's going to be getting a lot of people talking about him."

This guy is hitting his stride. Not even Domanick Davis, IIRC, commanded the ball as early as Speed Slaton has the past several games. There's a confidence and energy there. He looks like the game slows down for him, during the development of a play, and he even disappears in a pile and re-appears for an extra 2 or 3 yards when he should have been shut down.

All the talk is centered upon Chris Johnson (deservedly so) but this game is where the football world sees that Houston has a viable RB, too. And the running game will keep the Titans' dline honest for a change.

The way our defense played against GB...I am sliding over to the side of the room that thinks Smith has been overruled. That defense LOOKED differently: They were confident even when getting right back onto the field...usually, they are spent and pack it up after a few situations--Yet they kept answering the bell against a team, at home in 10-degree weather, that has playmakers.

The drama is building. If we beat the Titans, I will definitely believe that this team has turned the corner. I haven't looked forward to the past two years of Titans-Texans games. Until now.

We're going to win this. Not a doubt in my mind.

I don't think we had LB personnel in the first Titans game like we have now. Adibi and DeMeco can handle Johnson, IMO. My gawd...think if we also had Diles. Plus, the defensive playcalling was atrocious. Something's happening in the D. The mix of guys that are on the field are playing pretty well together. There's a unity there, I think. And a lot of it is due to the comeback of D-Rob.

I agree: We get up on them early, and the complex of the game changes rapidly. In our favor. And I don't see why it can't happen. We've been opening up games with a score on the first drive a lot. And we've been blowing chances on our subsequent possessions where we COULD have put the game a little out of reach.

I am freaking jazzed, man. Going to be a fun, fun Sunday!

And not play too aggressively on offense. I want to see as much Slaton as Christopher Walken wants cowbell. So that the Titans can't play whackamole on Schaub because they know the Texans are perpetually throwing.

I'd have to add that the best run defense is an explosive offense. Score early and often and the Titans will abandon the run. I'm not as worried about Chris Johnson as I am worried about LenDale White. I believe the Texans defense is better equipped to handle a speedy RB then a powerful RB.

I disagree a little with the notion that the Texans shouldn't be too aggressive on offense. I agree that they need to run to keep the Titans playing honest, but they also need to air it out as well, so they can build up enough of a lead to make the Titans change their offensive approach.

What the Texans don't need to try to do in this game is play old-school ball control football. This would be playing into the Texans' weaknesses and the Titans' strengths and would ultimately result in a victory and a possible wide margin for the Titans.

You guys also have a diamond in the rough with Slaton. While I don't think we're going to let him run all over us like he did the first game, we will have to keep an eye on him. Stopping him and getting to the QB is what we will need to do.
Here's to a good game Sunday!

Nope, at least I didn't see much of that when I was down in Nsh back for Texans-week. And when I was at Ford Field, all of the Titan gear I saw didn't have a #5 on it.

My guess is that folks still don't know what to think - no one saw this coming. (the VY saga, Collins taking over, then going 10-0 etc.) I do know this, a few boos rained down on Collins when he threw his second pick the other day, and I kept remembering how VY reacted.

The biggest key to a Texans vicktory right there.
The biggest key for a Texans victory is ensuring that your O line keeps Schaub or Rosencopter on their feet. If we wind up manhandling either one of them like we have in the past, it's gunna be a long day for you.

If we give them time to throw or let Slaton run all over us like he did last time (which I'm postive that we won't let that happen again), then it will be a long day for us.

To be fair, Slaton represents our weakness perfectly. We are susceptible to the cut-back and misdirection because Washburn teaches our ends to pass rush, not stick the man and read the play. So what happens before we make adjustments is Kearse, KVB, or whoever is playing at the time will get sucked in on a misdirection and allow the outside to the back. The tackle provides an easy seal and the back will hit the outside. Now, the good thing about our defense is that Thornton, Bulluck, Harper and Finnegan are all so quick that they can usually make up for the mishap, but Slaton neutralizes that speed and will cause problems. Thats what happened last time and what will happen Sunday unless we fix it, which would mean changing the defensive philosophy.

Thats the heart of it all, we have to block Haynesworth and Van den Bosh(sp). Add everyone else. We just have to protect, and stop the run.

I think we'll get consistent pressure on Schaub. We are just so deep there with Ball, Ford, Jones coming off the bench and into the rotation. Its going to be tough for your line to man up. I expect a lot of three step drops, draws and screens to neutralize the pass rush. We'll see if that works.

Has anyone heard how Chester is holding up? He got dinged pretty bad aganist the Jags but said there was no way he would miss this game. Just wondering.

This will be D. Browns chance to prove he was worth that first round pick. He better eat his wheaties and protect MS blind side!! It's up to him to make sure narry a hair on MS's head is touched. Meyers needs to get MEAN and nasty! I have yet to see the killer instinct in our center. I have a feeling Winston will draw a penalty or two if ANYONE goes for MS knees. He was pretty pissed the last time it happened. We'll see. Our OL has got to play smashmouth football or it will be a LONG day for all us Texan fans.

Just looking at the numbers, and they don't look so good. Hopefully we can run against their defense, because if we can't, we are in trouble. amazingly enough, we are 11th in the league in rushing. When was the last time that happened with the Texans?
