Greetings Texans fans. We don't ever play against you guys (first time since JP Losman's starting debut in 2005, I believe), so I don't know much of what do expect. Here's what I do know:

Matt Schaub is a second tier quarterback who's itching to breakthrough.

He's fortunate to have Daniels and Johnson as both are pass-catching freaks.

Johnson might be out with his chest injury. (No complaints her)

Slaton is young and unreliable, but could be dangerous.

I used to hear a lot about DeMeco Ryans, no so much of late.

Mario Williams is a beast, and we suck on the outside of the OLine, so that might be the difference maker.

So what's the rub, Texans fans? Can your OLine create holes to run against us? We're slim at linebacker, and got absolutely obliterated two weeks ago by the NYJ run attack. Should we be worried about yours?

With rookie Jairus Byrd at safety, our secondary has been airtight. How is your pass protection, and with Johnson potentially out, does this weaken one of your strongest (if not THE strongest) aspects of your game?

Fitzpatrick DEFINITELY makes things harder on defenses than Edwards did. How do you guys expect to cover Evans and Owens, and still be run conscious?

Your special teams- usually you only notice them if they're super good, or super bad. Where does yours fall?

Again, hardly ever see you guys, so I'm just curious what to be looking for come Sunday.

Go Bills!

I think we test your secondary more than anyone else, as we have ALOT of weapons. If our ground game gets rolling, it could be a VERY long game. T.O and Evans are worry some, but I'm not to terrible scared. The weather could hinder us alot, since we like the intermediate/deep passing game.

Hey we didn't perform too horribly in that Green Bay game last year. Schaub grew up in Penn if I remember correctly, so he's played a few times in the cold. I think we see an improvement in the running game this Sunday as long as Slaton hangs on to the ball. I'd also like to see more of those short check down passes to him, he seems to be doing pretty well with those this year.

Go Bills!Welcome and thanks for stopping in. Houston has a long history which you may know through the Oilers but a thread on this MB recently was talking about the Houston Gambler days of the old USFL. You might find that interesting as Bills' former super star Jim Kelly got his start on that team before heading for history making days in the cold North.

1. Schaub stats are sky rocketing almost crazily & as most of his fans hoped, if the Oline can keep him on his feet, he might just be an upper level QB. He is doing better with sailing the ball out of bounds than eating it but last game imo both sacks were his decision. It is helpful that stubborn Gary has allowed the passing game to open as we do not have a RB on roster that can move the ball.

2. Supposedly Johnson will play but he had coughed blood from the now diagnosed "Lung contusion". Personally, I'd have him on sidelines until I knew we could not beat your team without him.

3. Slaton is as you've described. Please tell your team that he no longer fumbles and they can take that off their game plan.

4. Demeco is quietly having an outstanding season. Hype is going to rookie Cushing & rightfully so, but Ryans should have a pro bowl season.

5.Williams coming off and injury but is still significant. We need Smith to crank it up opposite Mario as he was signed to do.

You need to know that we play only 1/2 of a game. It is up to you to figure out which half.

Our special teams are probably one of the best units in the league overall.

Our interior O-line play has been horrid in the running game. We lost 2 starters, however.... we have started to show SOME signs of life in the running game here recently. Maybe your D is just the thing we need here.

Our pass protect is decent, and our weapons are all over the place.

AJ will play no doubt.

Greetings Texans fans. We don't ever play against you guys (first time since JP Losman's starting debut in 2005, I believe), so I don't know much of what do expect. Here's what I do know:Welcome aboard!!


Matt Schaub is a second tier quarterback who's itching to breakthrough. Second tier quarterback that is leading the league in yards and TD's and is 4th in QB rating.


He's fortunate to have Daniels and Johnson as both are pass-catching freaks. You forgot Kevin Walter, Jacoby Jones, and Andre Davis



Johnson might be out with his chest injury. (No complaints her) Knowing AJ, if there's a chance he can go, he's going.


Slaton is young and unreliable, but could be dangerous. He's fumbling way too much, but I really think our rushing woes are the guards and center positions.


I used to hear a lot about DeMeco Ryans, no so much of late. Same 'ol Meco. Racking up tackles only he's playing second fiddle to Brian Cushing in that regard.


Mario Williams is a beast, and we suck on the outside of the OLine, so that might be the difference maker. Mario will bring it. He's been really good on the run this season.


So what's the rub, Texans fans? Can your OLine create holes to run against us? We're slim at linebacker, and got absolutely obliterated two weeks ago by the NYJ run attack. Should we be worried about yours? We'll be able to run it just enough. I don't think your secondary will prepared for the arial attack y'all will see, though.



With rookie Jairus Byrd at safety, our secondary has been airtight. How is your pass protection, and with Johnson potentially out, does this weaken one of your strongest (if not THE strongest) aspects of your game? Look at Schaub's numbers. Seriously though, he's been sacked 12 times which is middle of the pack. The line is pretty young, really.


Fitzpatrick DEFINITELY makes things harder on defenses than Edwards did. How do you guys expect to cover Evans and Owens, and still be run conscious?We got lit up by Fitzpatrick when he was a rookie ram.


Your special teams- usually you only notice them if they're super good, or super bad. Where does yours fall? We have two threats on special teams KR Andre Davis and PR Jacoby Jones.


Again, hardly ever see you guys, so I'm just curious what to be looking for come Sunday.

Go Bills!

What to look for?? :thinking: PAIN!!

Welcome Billsfan6. Others have already answered your questions, but my main concern is our running game. We have yet to have a "breakout" ground game this season when it appeared it would be one of our strengths in 2008. Steve Slaton is still a game-breaker in the passing game but appears to be thinking too much when running the ball. Which could be the reason why he's fumbling this year.

Schaub has been terrific in terrible conditions (Packers game last season when the temp. was in the single digits and threw for 400 yards) so I wouldn't count on him coming out flat because he plays for a "warm-weather team". He grew up in PA.

AJ not being at 100%, he'll still own your secondary.

Texans' run defense has been outstanding these past 4 games. Our first three were terrible but all of our regular starters are healthy and are buying into the new defensive coordinator's philosophy. Not a new scheme as the previous coordinator, just more of an attacking style.

Pass defense has improved but was a liability in the second half last game against the 49ers. I'm not really worried about this because it has been pretty decent all season. Both our starting corners are back at full strength. SS Pollard was an absolute steal when the Chiefs released him. FS Eugene Wilson looks for picks.

Consider it a quality win if you guys can beat us because we're playing some pretty good football as of late, but don't hold your breath. :shades:

Greetings Texans fans. We don't ever play against you guys (first time since JP Losman's starting debut in 2005, I believe), so I don't know much of what do expect. Here's what I do know:

Matt Schaub is a second tier quarterback who's itching to breakthrough.

So he's going to improve from #1 in yards and TDs to #0? Is that even possible? Wouldn't the universe implode?

He's fortunate to have Daniels and Johnson as both are pass-catching freaks.

Andre Johnson isn't human.

Johnson might be out with his chest injury. (No complaints her)

Johnson will play.

Slaton is young and unreliable, but could be dangerous.

Other than fumbles our running game is mostly blamed on the O-line. With any room to operate Slaton is really hard to bring down by a single defender.

I used to hear a lot about DeMeco Ryans, no so much of late.

He quietly goes about his business as a great MLB, but his numbers are down because of the two really good OLBs playing next to him stealing all his tackles.

Mario Williams is a beast, and we suck on the outside of the OLine, so that might be the difference maker.

Williams is injured and has been really ineffective as a pass rusher for the past few weeks because of it. He is still an immovable object in the running game.

So what's the rub, Texans fans? Can your OLine create holes to run against us? We're slim at linebacker, and got absolutely obliterated two weeks ago by the NYJ run attack. Should we be worried about yours?

No. The O-line has stunk it up run blocking this year, even against bad run defenses.

With rookie Jairus Byrd at safety, our secondary has been airtight. How is your pass protection, and with Johnson potentially out, does this weaken one of your strongest (if not THE strongest) aspects of your game?

The line gives Schaub a lot of time on most passing attempts, and when they don't he usually gets rid of the ball even with a guy in his face. Even if Johnson isn't in the game the Texans are loaded with targets for him to pass to. Open Daniels, Steve Slaton, Kevin Walter, JJ, and even Dreesen and Davis sometimes.

Fitzpatrick DEFINITELY makes things harder on defenses than Edwards did. How do you guys expect to cover Evans and Owens, and still be run conscious?

Fitzpatrick is terrible, and has been for a long time. He has one good game a year to fool teams into keeping him on the roster, but then he stinks it up. Don't get your hopes up. I imagine they'll cover Evans and TO with a corner. :thinking:

Your special teams- usually you only notice them if they're super good, or super bad. Where does yours fall?

Jones is a great punt returner, but occasionally muffs one when he has to adjust at the last minute. Davis was a good kick returner, but now just runs into the nearest defender.

Again, hardly ever see you guys, so I'm just curious what to be looking for come Sunday.

Go Bills!

There you go.

Anderson isn't all that. He does catch a perfectly thrown football well but I don't think I've ever seen him run after the catch. He's simply too small and completely lacks the strength to shed tacklers.

His locker room presence is tremendous and extremely significant. I'm glad we have him but he's very easily upgradeable.

Fitzpatrick DEFINITELY makes things harder on defenses than Edwards did. How do you guys expect to cover Evans and Owens, and still be run conscious?

Real easily. The same way every team has. Evans is nothing but a deep threat and that's all he's ever been really. TO is old now and is pouting his way into the off season already. He's already called it quits for the most part.

As far as the Bills running game, well what is there to watch out for? The coaching staff over there doesn't have a clue what they're doing. They're not even playing the better RB once again this year. Fred Jackson has been second fiddle to Lynch again, who is very overrated and Fred Jackson has clearly out played him, so I don't see an offensive game plan being used from the Bills to really worry about honestly.

I'm a lot more worried about the Bills defense than anything else. THe Texans offense has been rolling on everyone though, and I'm pretty sure that they'll do just fine once again against the BIlls. This should be a for sure win.

We got lit up by Fitzpatrick as a ram but totally dismantled him last year in Cincinatti.

Im not worried about your offense, but your pass defense scares the crap out me. We are a pass first, mid to long range passing offense that may have trouble in Buffalo.

This game comes down to turnovers. If you guys win the turnover battle, you may win the game

I've seen us plunk down large chunks of money on players that can be replaced. Anderson and Leach are two that come to mind. I'm a big fan of both but is Leach really worth being one of the highest paid FB in the league after his first season coming off the streets when it appears that we have more pressing issues?

No no no... that's not really what I'm trying to broach here. Let me try to rethink and change question... Was getting those two extended to larger than the norm contracts just as we started to get out of cap hell a priority? Again, I'm happy to have both of them on our team and don't really have a problem with how much money they make. It's just how... how the front office seems to be picking their battles. I think they have chose poorly.

BillsFan6
10-27-2009, 01:59 PM
Okay, a few things from reading through the thread now:

If your run attack is weak, you will struggle against the Bills' pass defense.

We've held Brady and Brees in check this year, and the league's unworthy (Sanchez, Anderson, Delhomme, Leftwich) looked absolutely pitiful against us.

The only unmentioned 2009 quarterback opponent to this point is Chad Henne, who picked up the win because the Dolphins ran on us (like they have everyone else they've beaten) with unfettered ease.

But since we contained Brees and Brady, I have no doubt we can contain Schaub, ESPECIALLY if your run-blocking up front is poor. Marcus Stroud is still a beast, and Kyle Williams is the best player in the NFL that nobody outside Western New York has ever heard of. If you guys are without Johnson, this will be a snore fest, because make no mistake:

Our offense will not win us this game.

Fitz IS better than Edwards right now because the guy takes shots. This very debate is raging right now in Bills nation, but the stats show Fitz is more inclined to make a throw >15 yards.

Evans is only a deep threat, huh? Well, I suppose if catching the ball 8 yards from the LOS then outrunning everyone to the endzone is a deep threat, then yes, that's exactly what he is.

Our offense is deadly when Evans is involved (I goofed, the last time we played you guys he had over 170 yards and 2 TD's IN THE FIRST QUARTER.

Lee and Edwards never really jived, certainly not like Evans and Losman. But there is definitely shades of the latter relationship with how Fitz looks to get the guy involved.

When defenses have to respect Evans (something they didn't have to do weeks 3-6 with Trentative under center), we've got the running tandem needed to impose our will.

So, if you're DB's aren't up to the task, and we can jump on you early, good luck passing your way back into the game.

We all expected an unabashed deluge last week in Carolina against Double Trouble. Not so much.

I think we are due any time now to have at least one big day running the football. Slaton has severe fumbling issues, but he's a good block away from taking one to the house. And so far this season we've faced much tougher secondaries than the one that y'all will put out on the field Sunday. If you try to double AJ, than we'll beat you with other guys. Than once AJ is single covered, you can kiss this game goodbye. That is of course if he plays. Even without him i think our passing game is too much to handle.

And speaking of out of this world, you've yet to go against all-world rookie Jairus Byrd. We'll see about that passing attack of yours.

Here's how well Brees did at the Ralph in 2009:

CMP ATT YDS CMP% LNG TD INT
16 29 172 55.2 32 0 0

And that was without the Byrdman, baby.

Also, we have these things in Buffalo called fans. They'll be so loud, Schaub won't be able to SEE, let alone hear. And if you're at all familiar with the Quicksilver method you'll know that if a man can't see, he can't fight.

I don't think either team is worthy of trash talking (atleast with out backing it up). Both teams seem to be good in some games and horrible in the others. Both are jeckle hyde type teams. Difference is which teams show up. Otherwise, leave the trash talking till after the game and hope for a good injury free game. Buffalo fans I wish you the best of luck against the rest of our division opponents.

Brady was terrible in the MN opener.

He spiked passes, sailed passes, and demonstrated an overall lack of comfort in the pocket.

That's what made the loss so hard, knowing that when we see them again in week 13 (I think), we won't get those same breaks.

As was stated by Fabian Washington of the Ravens last year, the Texans'
offense is tough to stop for opposing offenses because the Texans do not
play EVERY team the SAME WAY on offense.

Kubiak is a coach that like to set teams up, for that HUGE EXPLOSIVE play.
So, he and his staff gameplans for EACH defense they face, and look
to exploit the SPECIFIC weaknesses within the defense. Most teams just
line up and "do what they do best." Not the case with the Texans. If they
execute, you won't stop them.

The key to beating the Texans is outscoring the defense. It was much
easier in years past, because the coordinator did not play to the strengths
of the personnel. The new coordinator has formed a defense that actually
fits the the personnel, and has made them tougher to move the ball against
especially in the last 4 games. Our defense also leads the league in forcing
3-and-out possessions.

If your offense can outscore our defense, ESPECIALLY by forcing a turnover
or two, then the Bills will stand a chance. If the Texans don't turn the ball
over, the game won't be close.

It is always nice to read a good thread with fans from an opposing team that is mostly football talk and little trash talk.

I am not as confident as some other posters. From a talent perspective, I think this is a game that the Texans SHOULD win, but we haven't been nearly as consistent as we need to be for me to argue for a win with any confidence. We may be able to overcome one half of bad football at home, but we can't do it on th road.

Throw in the cold and windy (and possibly wet) conditions in Buffalo and you have to feel nervous that the strength of the team will be compromised. If the middle of our offensive line didn't act like a revolving door, I would feel much better.

Lets see.

Schaub is only "second tier" because of past injury issues. When he is actually healthy and playing he is a top tier QB. Some folks may disagree with me on that but this year most everyone can agree that he is putting up top tier performances (with a couple missteps)

Our ability to run the ball is pathetic. Our interior oline couldnt open a hole in a wet paper bag, let alone a professional dline. That being said, we have been compensating for that in a number of ways, not the least of which is short dump off passes to slaton. This has been very effective for us and you can probably expect to see it fairly regular (if we are smart). I do worry about the speed of your LBs though and how that might effect this gameplan.

Johnson says hes gonna play. Whether or not someone will step in and stop him is yet to be seen. Johnson is definitely a big part of our offensive success but we have a stable of VERY talented receivers. Johnson sitting on the bench is not a death sentence for us.

If your oline is struggling, watch out. Our defense is hungry for some sacks.

DeMeco is playing very well. You arent hearing anything about him probably because he isnt sacking QBs or making interceptions. What he is doing is making tackles, stopping runs, and just all around dominating on the field. It isnt flashy but its effective. Cushing, our rookie LB, is the stand out defensive player so far this year.

As for your passing game. Personally im not worried about it..but couldnt tell you why. Our secondary is the weakest part of our defense and our sack numbers arent anything special...and we have given up way too many big plays this year. But for some reason im still not scared of your passing game.


Special team... we are middle of the pack. No glaring weaknesses or strengths.

He's matured quite a bit, and he's older. He's always had great potential and has looked good as a QB now that he's older and more mature. Now we should get a rookie with a high upside but needs development. That's why I like Pike from Cinci.

We keep TE and see if his brain and unfreeze from down-field-initis and keep Fitz. Hamdan can go at this point. I could be happy with that for next year...

And oh yeah, get rid of the head coach unless he is willing to be demoted to DC with a paycut. The guy cannot lead an offense.

You do know that McGee doesn't cover ever receiver on the field right? Like he wasn't covering Winslow, it was Reggie Corner covering Smith in the Panthers game, and the Dolphins game isn't worth remembering.

Maybe people would take you seriously if y'all made even a small attempt to know what the hell y'all are talking about. Nothing in that podcast was "realistic"....misinformed is a MUCH better description, it just sounded like a bunch uninformed pre-puberic teenagers trying to talk about football.

The reason why we don't have a better record with Schaub is because we couldn't stop the run early in the season and we haven't been able to run the ball. We now stop the run (one of the best run defenses in the league over the last 4 games) and we've found creative ways to get Slaton (not Slaten :rolleyes:) the ball.

Honestly, I hope Schaub hangs 3 passing TDs on your team.....he isn't Sanchez or Delhomme

Realistic about what? If your team sucks so bad why is it "make or break" time, hasn't that ship sailed? As far as homers on this board, you don't get around NFL message boards, do you? Of course you don't, I heard the blog. Even if you believe there is a little favoritism going on here, have you not seen the banner up top? Of course we have played teams that are better than us and then that happens we talk about it in a very honest way. Thing is this week, we are playing an inferior team so if you want us to talk reverently of our opponent, bad week to check this board out.

I just don't get your unrealistic expectations of a Bills team you think is so pathetic, that is classic homerism. If you were involved in that blog I would keep that information to myself.

The thing that really made me LMAO was how this guy bashed his own team in that podcast and has dogged them a little on here, but for the life of him......he can't figure out why they're 3.5 home dogs. :rolleyes:

If being first in the NFL in TD's passes, yards thrown & fourth in QB rating at the half way point in the season is accomplishing nothing then he hasn't accomplished anything yet. I would assume you didn't watch the Green Bay game last year. In the coldest game of the year on the road Schaub threw for 414 yards & two touchdowns. I'm not too worried about the weather in Buffalo. And while Houston hasn't been too good on the road so far in their franchise, they are 2-1 on the road so far this year. Winning @ Tennessee & Cincinnati, their only loss coming by a yard against Arizona. Buffalo being 1-2 at home so far this year doesn't make it too much of an advantage either. Their only win at home being against the winless Bucs.

Thereby setting a record for most yards in Lambeau by an opposing QB ever.

I'm not too worried about the weather in Buffalo. And while Houston hasn't been too good on the road so far in their franchise, they are 2-1 on the road so far this year.

And 4-2 over their last 6 road games.

If your best defensive playmaker is the weather, then your team is pretty bad.

The Buffalo Bills have been statistically dominated over the past two weeks, giving up more than two yards for every one that they’ve gained.

Though he’s completed just 44.7 per cent of his passes, Fitzpatrick has done a few things better than Edwards did during the first five games of the season.

While Edwards’s tendency to throw bad interceptions [7] was killing the Bills, Fitzpatrick has thrown just one in 47 pass attempts. He’s also done a better job getting the ball to high-priced receivers Lee Evans and Terrell Owens.

Relax, b.

Inflating player stats in any way shape or form is a practice reserved exclusively for trash talk.

Plus, the numbers you mention could easily be skewed to indicate something else, but alas, what's the point?

Let's talk Sunday at 3:30 pm Central! I have no idea who b. is, but you quoted me. Don't throw numbers out and expect to get no numbers back. Any casual observer of the NFL will admit that the Texans, on paper, are the better team. I'm not talking trash, just stating the facts, ma'am. I'm not gauranteeing a win or anything else. The facts are, the Texans should dominate this game from start to finish and there is very little the Bills can do or say about it. The stats prove this out. BTW, the Texans are manly enough to put a lid on their stadium so weather doesn't become a deciding factor. I notice the 1-2 at home Bills don't. That being said, that's why we play the games every week. Sometimes the paper is wrong. I'm one of the biggest homers on these boards, but I do see our weaknesses. Do you see yours?

I'm just now in front of the computer for the first time post-game.

Wow, that was brutal. Hate to say I told you so WRT Byrd, but alas, not having Kyle Williams in the game and the injury to Schobel was just too much for our defense to handle.

God Almighty we need a quarterback, end of story.

Like I mentioned the other day, y'all need Oline. We might not have got to Fitz as much as we should've, but we were basically owning y'alls Oline.

Y'all need some Dline as well. Start in the trenches and work your way out to the skill positions. Something we should've done back in 02.
