-3 points for every INT he throws. He has me worried. I don't have anyone else to play either. It's do or die with the Q-tip this week! I can only HOPE he plays a clean game.

Where exactly is midtown Houston? I've always thought of Houston as downtown ( where the big, tall buildings are) and the suburbs. New York City, Chicago, etc. have uptown, mid town and downtown, but their not as spread out as Houston or LA are. Just curious.

Midtown is just south of downtown and east of Montrose and north/west of 59. It really wasn't much of anything until gentrification a couple years back, and now it's a decent place to live if you don't mind the occasional homeless person wandering around. I could walk to the Toyota Center and bike over to Minute Maid if I wanted, so we're still pretty darn close to downtown.

And y'all wonder why I think it's pointless to sign high profile free agents. As a rule, I agree with you. It would be nice to have someone with that nasty attitude bringing it on 3rd and long from the middle for the Texans, though.

Schaub is one of the reasons we haven't beaten the Tacks in his starts vs. them.

Schaub only had two quarters of play combined against the Tacks last year and didn't have any turnovers during his time--hard to put those two L's on him. The last game is obviously a different matter.

Good point. Although, that lends itself back to whether or not Matt Schaub is Chris Chandelier v2.0 with injuries and getting knocked out of games.

I hope we are geared up to protect Matt from haynesworth. You know he will be aiming at him again, and he doesn't mind cheap shots. Matt played like David carr when we played the Titans in Tenn. Not that I blame him but maybe now with our momentum and everything being more settled, he will get it handled and shove it down haynesworth's throat.

Gotta remember, that was only Duane Brown's second NFL game. He has a lot more under his belt now, and he can cop an attitude.

Alex Gibbs needs to teach them the art of cut-blocking so Haynesworth can be put on his ass!! Our o-line needs to protect Schaub at ALL costs, even if it means some penalties. I'd much rather suffer some yellow flags than seeing Matt on the ground surrounded by doctors and trainers.

I was wondering who was going to have to deal with Hinnybutt. I think Chester got banged up pretty bad during the Jags game also. Some interview I heard, somewhere, had CHester saying there was NO way he would miss this game. I think he might already be fired up!! Man, I would LOVE to see him flatten that SOB!!:fans:

But back to the subject about Houston geography. Is the Gallery in Houston no longer known by that name, but by another handle like WestHouston ?
I dunno because I live in Clear Lake (we still call it that down here) where its usually safe & secure and don't get up to the big city very often.

He'd better step it up, cuz he ain't going to get much help from Meyers.

What's funny to me is, Meyers was asked before the season started who he looked forward to go up against and his answer was Fat Al. The 1st tit game has been practically erased from my mind for some reason. Does anyone remember how he did?

The rule states that a defender can not land with all his weight on the QB and drive him into the turf. So YES it was a cheap shot.

Double Barrel
12-09-2008, 03:06 PM
I thought there was a Hayneworth hit that showed him with his arms out, so his entire weight was landing on Schaub...there are too many hits to remember...

That pic just looks brutal, though. I really hope we see some *ahem* balls from our linemen this weekend in dealing with him. Man up, fellas!

That's the cheap shot.

The helmet to helmet is questionable ... if AH shift his helmet more near the shoulder it defiantly would not be. From the angle that is hard to call and would be pretty soft IMO.

He has his hands wrapped around Schaub in order to tackle him and in the process of taking him down landed on him. While a brutal hit I do not see that as driving a guy to the turf. The ball left right as AH was hitting him.

Shaub is 2/3 of the way to the turf and AH's foot is still on the ground. I would imagine to drive a guy to the turf Haynsworth would have to be fully airborne at this point in the play.

One thing I have noticed about Schaub is he has pocket presence enough to get the ball out but not to avoid the huge hits. I recall a play where KVB got around on him last season and he went through a full throwing motion and got his elbow grabbed and stopped in the motion. That is a pretty easy way to dislocate a shoulder especially with the power an NFL QB puts into his throwing motion.

Meh... I'm not worried about Fat Albert this time around. He will be too busy whining about the Texans blocking scheme, like before the season started.

Albert Haynesworth, Titans defensive tackle: "They always talk about us being dirty, maybe they need to look at that, trying to hurt people and stuff. If they aren't man enough to stay up, shoot, they shouldn't be in the league then. The coach, either.".... Says the head stomper.

I am not so sure that is the greatest idea to keep Schaub on the field. If the Titans D-Line gets the feeling that the Texans O-line is trying to purposely injure one of its own I have a feeling the hits are going to be much harder on Schaub and well turn about is fair play. With Schaubs injury issues the day could be very short for him especially if he gets that deer in headlights look he tends to get right before he gets hit.

Karma can only be distributed by the universe. Acts of agression by the Texans O-line will only add to their negative karma and after what they did to Carr they have way to much to work off already.

It's in their typical scheme. Hardly some random act of violence. All the Karma debt belongs to one Fat Albert Haynesworth. I just happen to be of the opinion some of Fat Albert's debt will be paid this Sunday..

I'd settle for a win, no Titan needs to get hurt although I wouldn't lose any sleep if they did much like the Titan fans seem to revel in the dings that Schaub has taken. I don't think anything will come of it this game as far as players getting after each other and I think Schaub is ready to have a good game against them. Don't know if it will be enough for us to win but I expect a good game.

Yes that is the play and yes it was a cheap shot. The ball was gone. Haynesworth didn't just let his momentum carry him into Schaub, he launched himself and drove Schaub into the ground--a direct rule violation. While I would say you can see indications even in the still with his feet and posture, it is clear in the video he wasn't passively trying to back off but rotated his shoulders into Schaub to drive him into the ground.
