They are a heckuva lot better than the Jets. I think they are going to beat the crap out of us. Shaub played like he was still injured (from running out of bounds in that NFLX game). TN will be coming after him, especially since they won't be worried about our running game. If we start 0-2, it will feel like "uh-oh, here we go again". Oh that's right, it already feels like that again.

Because I don't think the Texans are anywhere near as bad as they looked today, I think they have a chance.

But they better get their act together in a hurry

Schaub's passes were weak because he couldn't push off with the ankle. That was not his offensive line. That is the same thing they defended Carr with.

This.

Seriously, he never had any time to make reads and complete throws. He got rattled from the very beginning. The play calling and the O-line is to blame. Play calling was terrible...and when it was not...it was predictable.

It looks like an 0 - 2 start to the season to me.

and if the line can get to collins, no, not hurries, sacks....we may have a chance.

but i seriously doubt it.

we need to win against jacksonville and oakland.
and i doubt we'll win against jacksonville too.

I think it will be a tough game , I think the Texans will bounce back and esp the offense will try to prove this game was a fluke.


If I didn't think that, then hell I (or we all ) might as well quit watching the next 15 games and wait for the draft

No. Of course not. That's entirely out of the question. We'd actually have to take a team to Nashville that cared. I didn't see one today and nothing makes me believe that they'll find a heart in 7 days.

... no frickin' way.

Pretty much summed up what I was going to post. If the Titans D looked like they did against Pitt, we might be looking at scoring our first offensive touchdown in week 3.

This next will will definitely test the mettle of this team.

NitroGSXR
09-13-2009, 04:21 PM
I think we'll run 'em over. We're a sparkling 2-0 on the road thus far this year. 0-3 at home. I think I cursed the Texans by buying season tickets for the first time.

Ugh.

Go Texans!

Depends on who plays. i think this game shows how important walter and wilson are to this team. do we have a chance, yeah. will we, probably not. Our Defense should keep us in the game though, atleast for three quarters.

If the coaches devise the same type of offensive game they did today then HELL NO, no chance. If they get REAL and realize they need to pass early and often, then mix in the run later, maybe. Our defense may be able to hold the Titans to a reasonable points, but if the offense plays scared and TRADITIONAL like they did today then no we will get BEAT. Sometimes I think the Texans say/play classic ball because maybe they don't want to take a chance or they just aren't able to visualize a way to win or they are unrealistic in viewing the team they have. C'mon coaches today you were boring, unimaginative, and YOUR OFFENSIVE GAME PLAN GAVE US NO CHANCE TO WIN. If Shab is so hurt that he can't throw the ball downfield or he is so flustered because of the pressure that he can't think, then put someone else in. Give our BEST PLAYER ON OFFENSE AJ a chance. Defense was Ok today, so there is some hope, but the Offense was pitiful. VENTING

No. but they coulda helped. i mean come on we were playing furguson a safety at cb. through the first half our D was impressive, atleast run D. if our offense woulda let the D take a break, it woulda been way closer. doesnt matter who we play, if our D is out there all day their gunna get burned. and just put yourself in rex ryans shoes. the gameplan was keep the pass attack in check. you gameplanned for dre and walter and when walter isnt out there, you can double triple team dre. (they woulda let davis beat em)

Sure they can.

The Meatballs are definitely the favorites in this matchup, but 1 terrible game doesn't mean the Texans are a bunch of chumps.

If the defense stuffs the run like they did for most of this game, and the offense remembers they're one of the best in the league, they can go in there and take this one. The tacks are a good team, but definitely not dominate. Especially without Fat Albert.

It's really funny too because she's only 3 but she likes watching the Texans with me (i know it sounds crazy but she does, she likes it whenever we get to go to a game at reliant too) and she'll even make comments to me when we watch together and i show that i'm upset about the perfomance on the field, she'll ask "why are the Texans broke daddy?" We'll high five if we score, etc.. Anyway, I think her and I just having a day out may be better than watching the ass pounding that is more than likely to happen next week. Not worth the effort for turning on the tv based on what I saw today.

schaub played like all of the other qbs that didnt have no line to protect him.

Our OL was pushed around last year when we beat the Titans; but Schaub kept battling through it. So to answer the question, yes we can win. But I can't see beating a dominant defense twice in a row unless the OL vastly improves.

I know I'll get some neative reps sent my way, but I will say that the fans performed as shitty as the team today. It sounds silly but we can even fill the staidum with more than 10 people wearing white. You think in Pittsburgh they were flipping blue, and green, and orange, or they get quite when the going gets rough. They're loud when they need to be and get in the game.

As a fan we can't get the players to do what they need to do, but at least get in the game, I think that fingers can be pointed back at ourselves. A new Head Coach, a new QB, a ne GM, a new Center, won't make better fans, only better fair weather fans.

For a short sentence there is certainly a lot to think about built into it...
1) the reason we can do well against the Tacks is that we have played them before and know what they do.
2) the reason we got slaughtered by the Jets and others is that we are unfamiliar with what they do.
3) should we ever accidentally stumble into the play-offs, does this mean we are sure to go out first round because we will have no clue what to do?
These are just my thoughts when I read this and it kind of scares me about how true this could be.

I absolutely agree with you TF!! This was one of the better "color" days we have ever had. Some folks don't have a white jersey, and can't afford one. BUT, wearing TEXAN colors is what it's all about anyway. It's the suit crowd that wears pastels that tick me off. They can affored a jersey in every friggin color!!

I have never booed my team, and never will. BUT, they sure gave us reason to today! It's just not my style. I just wonder how many of our players really care that they sent 70,000 fans home disappointed and sad. They played like thay didn't give a crap!

They sacked Ben 4 times, hit him 14 and caused 3 turnovers. I don't call that a bad day for a defense, especially on the road against the defending super bowl champs.

I'm shocked at the performance Sunday. They just seem so slow on both sides of the ball. Where is the pop on defense? They need to get ticked off and hit like they mean it, finish tackles.

I know this team has heart, hopefully they will use this loss as "tacklin fuel" and kick the crap out of the Titans, but I must admit I have my doubts.

I don't think this statement applies to the Texans, because this wasn't just one performance. It has happened repeatedly with the Texans. This type of performance was specifically discussed during the offseason as something that had to be fixed because it is ingrained in the team's identity.

A more singular occurence would have been if the Texans had shown up on opening day ready to play and be competitive. We've been shown nothing new,;no aberration.

I might be in the extreme minority on this one, but I think we're gonna see a better prepared team and a much better effort next week. Sometimes you need to get caught with your pants down to learn a lesson. We're very familiar with the Titans and obviously we have everything to play for. For the first time in a while I go into this game more concerned about our offense than our defense containing those two runningbacks in Tennessee.

The Jets are better than the Titans. Mark my words.

Matters not, the Rams and Lions would've whooped our ass yesterday.

Wow, just wow. A lot of people on this board have thousands of dollars invested in this team, if they want to vent and complain because it doesn't seem like this team is going to be any better this season after the limited sample we have seen in pre-season and one regular home game then they can damn well complain.

You should learn to DEAL WITH IT, OR STAY OFF THE FREAKIN MESSAGE BOARD!!!!

Amen brutha.

Nationally, the bloom fell off of Kubiak's rose bush last night. I see much of the media turning on him, especially the guys who put their credibility on the line by pimping the Texans as the new up and coming team. I think we are officially at a crossroads.

None of these guys have credibility. They pimped the Cardinals for a decade before they did anything. A few years ago they were pimping the Rams as Super Bowl favorites right as they fell off and went to crap.

I can't believe how many pantywaisted ninnies are on this board. IT'S ONE FREAKING GAME. You people act like the team can't make adjustments in practice. If you don't think we can win, then sell you Texans tickets to someone who actually SUPPORTS the team and go join a Dallas fanboard where you're whining will be appreciated.

You know I'd say it's just one game. The problem is the Texans as a team didn't show up to play. Technically I'd almost say if they show up next week then we'll have played one game.

It wouldn't surprise me. The Jets were solid last year without Rex Ryan's defensive genius. Now they're just scary.

Yeah, some of these guys are forgetting the Jets are the ones that went into Nashville last season and knocked the snot out of the Toilers. IIRC they handed the Titans their first loss last year.

I am not arguing that. However painting a picture that the Texans can not beat the mighty Titans because they lost to the lowly Jets is off base. The Jets kicked the crap out of the Titans last season in Nashville.

I see your point and I agree the Jets are way legit, but they were an awful looking team from then on after the Titans game. The Jets are not a perfect team and could've been had yesterday, we all saw their gameplan from a mile away. A coach with half a brain shoulda known what was coming and we stubbornly stuck to our guns and thought going through the motions would put points on the board. I still think we could still beat that team, maybe in the playoffs this year, but we have to help ourselves and I'm not so sure our staff is ready or will ever be ready to do that.

You know what, after thinking about this, if they actually did beat the Tacks on Sunday, after what they did last week, I'd find that a lot more disturbing. I dang sure won't be doing cartwheels, I know that much.

It's one thing to have a bad team that just loses all the time, but it's a lot more irritating to be in a situation where you don't know which team is going to show up.

Maybe it's just me, and the bad taste I can't get out of my mouth.

I think we will look better against the Tacks. Our Offense always seems to get its clock cleaned against 3-4 D's like the Jets, ravens ect... Don't know if we will win or not, but I think we have played them enough to know them and have a better shot at some sort of Offensive (all puns included) play. Hopefully Schaub will have numbers like Big Ben did, over 300 yrds passing.

And if the FREAKIN running game is not there, throw the FREAKIN ball!
AJ was not shut out, I saw him open several times! Maybe use the pass to open up the run! :twocents:

Games like this are almost impossible to predict. I simply refuse to believe the Texans are as bad as that egg that they laid against the Jets.

That said, I thought that Fisher had the Titans ready and violent against the Steelers, if they carry forth that effort and minimize the mistakes a bit more, they should get the W.

Lot of Ifs, though.
