That's what I think...I like our chances of blazing them ourselves...:kingkong:

I'm saying our offense is capable of exploiting the same weaknesses in that secondary Indy did.

Of course, but the fact they got pressure over him for the majority of the game is a huge part of what are defense did....the D will get better, the Cards don't run much even when they should...
Yeah, it'll be better effort from them cuz they can score TDs...but I don't think it's a mismatch for us. I think Mario can really effect this game, he should eat Mike Gandy alive and thus demand attention...The Colts didn't shut down Fitz or Boldin, they shut down Kurt and dominated the ball...

When they are inconsistent that team can look as bad as when we are...really..I think it should be a good game..

I think we have a shot at beating the Cards.

Essentially, they're finesse team that runs the same defense as we do; which is weak to strong running teams.

If we can:
- punch them in the mouth early and often (the way we played the Titans)
- get a strong pass rush up the middle (Warner likes to step up in the pocket and doesn't like to move side to side
- run the ball & keep their high flying offense off the field

We have a shot.

It may sound crazy, but we could really use Ron Dayne next week.

I agree...I actually think we have as much a shot as they do to pull this one out, they better be prepared and not underestimate this offense cuz if they come out like they did against Indy..we will light up that secondary...regardless I think we will:texflag:

The Texans can't get pressure with the front four. Warner is one of the better QBs at reading the blitz. Our secondary can't cover anyone, even the Raiders. Boldin and Fitz don't drop passes like the Raiders.

Texans might win, but I don't see how the Cards' offense will be held down at all.

I disagree..I think we can get pressure on Warner up front... Mario should have an advantage as I believe he'll be matched up with Gandy...I don't think we shut them down, of course not, but I think we can get some stops and our offense can put up some points this week to win. We will be chucking it all over the yard...:kingkong:

We won't be worrying about stopping the run too much. This will be the first team where we can just put forth more focus on defending the pass. We faced four teams that have had strong rushing teams. Tim Hightower? About ten teams have two running backs with more yards than Tim Hightower. He really is bad. This is the game where we're really going to miss Jacques Reeves.

Warner isn't really what I would call 'the better QBs' at reading the blitz. He's been sacked 7 times this season, one less than Schaub. Right around the middle of the league so I'd call him somewhat average there. Especially considering that he's 38 years old now.

Actually, the Texans got pressure with their front 4 a fair amount of times today. And, yes, the Cardinal receivers do drop the ball sometimes. Boldin has struggled with the drops the past season. The Cardinals have a mediocre offensive line, a poor running game, an erratic defense, and a dynamic passing attack. We can beat them. But, I'd be foolish to be confident that we'd win... I already tried that with the Jets and the Jags.

We have yet to prove any ability to stop, or for that matter, slow down a good passing offense. It's good to have nailed up a win against the Raiders. But let's not get giddy and forget who this win came against...........the Raiders.......a team that has forever not sniffed a playoff game.......for good reason.

Our only hope is the D line and LBs get enough pressure on their QB to force bad throws. If they don't, it's gonna be a very long game for the Texans.

Of course another angle is we suddenly find our running game and dominate the time of possession and keep their offense off the field.

Like I said, we are gonna find out here real quick who the Texans really are.

That would be nice. The Cards have Darnell Docket, who's one of my favorite DT's in the league. The dude's a beast and will give our weak interior a beating if we don't game plan for this dude.

I have no idea if we can win this game or not. It all depends on which defense shows up. I don't even know who their running back is but I'm willing to bet he could go for 100 yards if we decide to go back to not playing disciplined.

Our offense SHOULD roll their defense but with Slaton being about as opposite as you can get from one season to the next I'm not as confident.

Come on man, that thinking doesn't make much sense.:thinking:..Your saying that we will only put up points in the 2nd qtr based off that for our future games? You know you could probaly look at a lot of teams and see quarters where they really score more than others quarters they don't in games....Regardless, the fact is our O has played well for the most part since week 1.

This is definitely a winnable game, although also definitely not easy. When you look and consider that 4 out of the next 5 games are on the road, and the home game is a tough one vs. San Francisco, this one needs to go in the "W" column.

Right now, it's a little bit tough to figure out the Cards. A 1-2 start with two home losses that were both bad offensive games may not tell the tale of their season (although it might), but it tells you if we're really serious a winning season and a playoff berth, you find a way to win this game. Pretty, ugly, it doesn't matter how, but I think it's as close to a must-win game as week 5 can be.

We will be in nickel package almost the entire game, we haven't shown a consisten pass rush all year. If warner has 5 seconds to throw the ball we are going to be in trouble.

Our best pass rush comes off the ends, as already mentioned Warner isn't going to run off on us he's going to shuffle left/right, and step up. I'm more nervou about playing a passing team than I am about a running team, cause basically we have almost 0 pass rush consistently.

The last two games we haven't done jack in the second half, now the last game it's obvious that Kubiak threw out anything in the playbook that didn't consist of a handoff. We can't impose our will on a team and just run the ball and that's a problem when you need to be able to put away a team.

We are going into this game with the the weakest part of our offense and defense we need to execute on to have a good winning shot at this game.

offensively - we need to run the ball and control the clock (not our strong point)
defensively - we need to get some major pass rush and make it a rough day for Kurt Warner (not our strong point)

Yah this could be ugly.

Mario will get double teamed and leaving it up to someone else to make a play, we'll need a pass rush up the middle.. I don't know why we don't move bulman inside and see if he can get some pass rush while putting Barwin on the edge.

Bulman seems to be strong enough to get some push.

Yeah, he did and although Mario isn't Freeney(best pash rusher in the league IMO) I think he will still create some problems back there or at least need extra attention cuz it's not like they have the best O-line...there's match-ups that we need to exploit....I just hope we are successful

It is kick ass and take names. It refers to beating a military unit so badly that you take their pin/flag/symbol off the board.

Freeney absolutely destroyed the LT and the TE/RB, whoever else they put on him quite a few times, I hope Mario can have some success but unfortunately I don't think he's quite the force Freeney is.

Freeney is much more a quick move artist no doubt about it. At the same time, he isn't one quarter the run stuffer Mario is. Folks who aren't appreciating how complete a player Mario has become and are just focusing on sacks are really missing out on what we are seeing here in Houston. Mario is a beast.

The Texans haven't won a road game in October since a 20-10 win over Tennessee in 2004!!

And they are only 2-9 all-time on the road in October.

The Texans have also NEVER won a road game played indoors (0-11). I believe the roof will be closed at UofP.

The Texans have also NEVER won a road game played indoors (0-11). I believe the roof will be closed at UofP.

Unless the offense is sloppy, I just don't see us losing this game. I predict we win something like 30-20. I think our front 7 will dominate theirs, other than a couple draw plays and maybe a screen pass or two. I expect a few big plays by the WRs but generally, I think the running game will be shutdown and Kurt Warner will be under enough pressure that we force some 3 and outs, a couple turnovers, and they struggle to stay in sync.

Offensively, I think we have over 100 yds rushing. I expect a few big plays as well and I think play action will be very effective. I just don't see them stopping us regularly. My biggest concern will be the defense's ability to turn us over and make a defensive score. If we are smart with the ball and are effective running it, I see over 400 yards and around 30 points. The Texans are simply a better team. yep, that's right!

The Texans haven't won a road game in October since a 20-10 win over Tennessee in 2004!!

And they are only 2-9 all-time on the road in October.

The Texans have also NEVER won a road game played indoors (0-11). I believe the roof will be closed at UofP.

Yeah and we also never won a game in Tennessee since the game u referred to(until this year).

Normally we are very good at home over the past 2 seasons we only lost 2 at home(until this year) Where we have 2 losses at home already.

We also in our history have played the Cards once....We are 1-0 with a 30-19 win...

This is also our first 2-2 start I believe.... None of those stats really matter as we are already going against the grain...

My head is saying we'll win this. My heart is saying that we'll blow it big style again.

I'm optimistically pessimistic.

Damn Texans.

Yes, I'm well aware of the stats being meaningless, but they are what they are. Doesn't mean anything Sunday, or this season for that matter. And after Sunday, that game will be another stat.

WHOAAAAAA!!!!!! Do they put that together for every game? Interesting stuff.

Most telling stat there that jumped out at me, since '06 the Texans are 0-19 when they run less than 25 times a game.

Yeah, that surprised me too...I had no idea they lost ever game with under 25 carries...

One detailed take from the Sports Network (http://www.seattlepi.com/scorecard/nflnews.asp?articleID=208281). I've included their summary below:

OVERALL ANALYSIS

In the preseason, Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson discussed his team's apparent lethargy, commenting that Arizona seemed to lack the fire that had carried then through the 2008 postseason. It would appear through three games that Wilson's comments were dead-on, though there is ample reason for the Cardinals to awake from their slumber, beginning with this week. With a home loss to the 49ers already hanging around their necks, Arizona can ill-afford to fall yet another game behind San Francisco in the NFC West standings, and should be focused in trying to avoid an 0-3 home start on Sunday. Their opponent, the Texans, looked good in their only road appearance of the year, in Week 2 against Tennessee, but this patchwork defense is going to have a very difficult time withstanding the aerial assault coming from Warner and company on the other side of the ball. In the end, look for big plays to be the difference in this one, as the Cardinals simply make more of them than their visiting counterpart.

The Texans are out to prove that they are a better than mediocre team.

The Cardinals are out to prove that last year was not a fluke.

If there's justice, the good guys should win. :cowboy1:
