Just for grins, and because I'm getting tired of arguing about Kubiak and what the hell's wrong with the Texans, let's look at who's picking who for this Sunday.

I'll start with ESPN's page of "Expert Picks". They got five picking us and five picking the Chargers. Wow. Does "500" ring a bell with Texans fans? LOL

I want to say 20 to 10..Chargers win, but since our defense gives up more points per game on average I will say 24 to 14 Chargers

This is the same Chargeres team that hasn't won on the road yet this year, the same chargers team that lost TO THE RAMS, TO THE SEAHAWKS...we still have a shot at this!

Everyone stop freaking out!

Sounds like the perfect storm for a Texans lost.

Dallas hasn't won a game all year, on the road or at home, yet...well...we all know what happened there...


When things are in the Texans favor, and it seems like it's a good chance for us to finally 'arrive' they always seem to let me down...

I hope you are right Lee...I hope the Texans come out and restore some faith in what they're doing...

For some reason, I feel like this is going to be a trap game. I believe San Diego is a much better team than their 3-5 record indicates. What have they been excelling at? Passing the ball. Yes, Philip Rivers has already thrown for over 2600 along with 15 TD passes and looks to surpass Marino's single season passing yard record. Rivers has been lighting it up and our secondary has been getting lit up. See the problem?

However, the Texans have always been able to rebound after a disheartening lost. The offense, though, needs to step it up a notch to overcome our defensive deficiencies.

I predict the Texans will win this one.

31-28 Texans :texflag:

I'm unfortunately going to have to agree with Corrosion this week, I think we get flogged 35-17 or something of this nature. I think Rivers is gonna have a big day..

Now that being said they could drop every ball in sight like I've seen them do as well and we kick the crap out of them, but I don't want to get my hopes up and then get them crushed.

Chargers-
#1 rated Offense
#1 rated defense
3-0 vs Texans
always start late in the year
just whooped the Titans
have a newly drafted RB that did not want to play for the Texans
Texans are 2-2 at home

yea I know they are only 2-5, but some still pick them to win their division

Wow ! I mean I wanna say the Texans will win and I sure want them to win,
but my sense is that they've definitely regressed since last year, for whatever reasons, some apparent others not so much ?
Last year we were playing right there with anybody (with maybe one exception ) even if we didn't win the game, but this year with the season not even half over we've already been blown-out 3 times vs teams with talent like the Chargers. And 2 of those lop-sided losses were in Houston, so we seem to have no advantage at home in Reliant ?

SD is the #1 offense & defense in yds per game.

They are the #5 scoring offense and the #19 scoring defense.

JB is right they march up and down the field and then make a critical mistake as they are playing with a lot of new kids. One of the rookies ran down the field made the catch, got up and put dropped the ball like he was down already. It's plays like that that have kept the Chargers from being a much better team than what their record shows.

This and I have lost any faith I had in Gary Kubiak. Frank Bush is slightly more knowledgeable than I am, they outsmart themselves, and he decided to sink or swim with his guys. Better get a life jacket Gary, or an Oxygen tank.

Yup, and the line opened at 0, which means ALL of the money is going to the Chargers! Now if you're a skeptic like I am, that would indicate that the Texans either win the game or lose by less than 3!

Much as I am wishing we win - I think we lose. The players don't have "IT" in them. A team can't win with only sporadic spunk, fight and being terminally yet consistently inconsistent. And, our home record ain't great.

I haven't watched many of their games. But I can see a team getting a bunch of yards trying to play catch up.

If their Special teams is giving the other team a short field, I can see their defense giving up low yardage.... & them still losing.

What's sad is ...

Whats really sad is how offensive the Texans defense is ....


Whats really sad is that they will chunk the ball around when they average 7+ yards per carry on the ground .... and watch a defender get a pick 6.


Whats really sad is how many of us are predicting a not only a Texans loss this week .... but that a 2-5 team does it convincingly.


Whats really sad is .... anyone remember that comercial where HHWNBM lines up with no OL ? ..... Thats how I feel about the entire Texans defense. They may as well stay on the sidelines. :rake:

Just going with the current pattern we will win this game.

It's algorithms or something like that

18-15 Texans

In all seriousness, if we establish the run early we can win this game, and that's a big if. Chargers are pretty dominant in getting after the QB, the gameplan should be the same as Colts round 1 with some screens and playaction thrown in.

Chargers are #1 in defense yards allowed. 260

Neither team can trail big. (or at all for that matter)

Period.

Texans running the ball with a lead is nowheresville, USA.

Chargers with a lead is like walking through shredded glass without shoes. They'll hurt you with Tolbert, Matthews and Sproles, and they passing attack, of course.

Key for each team? Don't trail by too much to where you have to get our your gameplan.

Texans need a Jacoby Jones play this week, too. SD sports a bad special teams core and with the weapon we have in the punt/kick game, we can exploit that.

I doubt the Texans force any turnovers. The Chargers NEED this
win to get back into their division race, and the Texans are the
ELIXIR for ailing teams ESPECIALLY at Reliant.

Don't put your heart into this game. Consider this Game #2 of the
Kubiak-era Meltdown.

Those shills on 610 gave Kubiak kudos for doing his Monday show after
the Giants game. Rich Lord said something along the lines of "We
appreciate coach coming in to talk, even after a bad game."

The Colts game was the first time he ducked "The Gary Kubiak Show." Dude
knows the heat is on, and this is where his annual 4-5 game LOSING
STREAK occurs.

I have a STRONG suspicion, history is now repeating itself. A passive
offseason lead to a passive regular season, with nowhere to run.

Houston 28 - SD 20

If you've watched any Chargers game this season (I've watched about
3 of them in full,) you'll see that they are explosive on offense AND defense.
The reason they are 3-5, is because of timely turnovers and special
teams. They actually lost against the Raiders, because their returner
fumbled the ball to a Raiders' defender who ran it back for a touchdown.
This occurred as the final play of the game.

I don't see them losing to the Texans in a stupid way. They are MUCH
better team than the Chiefs are, and 3-5 ain't nothin' but a number
when talking about San Diego. Should the Texans play like they have all
seven games this season, they'll lose BIG.

I say San Diego by 14.

Texans win this game. I still believe in the long run Kubiak is not the coach for this team, we won't make the play offs, I'll be pissed and support the soap crowd, but for some unknown reason I just believe we'll win this particular game.

Please don't ask me my reasoning for this leap of unlogical logic, it's just how I feel.

Mr. White
11-05-2010, 09:21 PM
I think the Chargers win for the same 2 reasons they they've been beating us.

1. Their offensive coaching is better than our defensive coaching.
2. Their defensive coaching is better than our offensive coaching.

Not to mention, they know it's time for them to wake up and win their division.

Im not "rooting for them to be routed" by any stretch of the imagination.


I am however looking at the two teams and have to consider the possibility of the Texans coming out flat again .... When has this team ever played up to expectations when it mattered ?

What Texans team shows up ?


the Chargers being 2-5 are much better than their record shows and every game for them is a must win .... their backs are against the wall if they want any shot at the post season.


The Texans have the worst pass defense in the NFL , quite possibly the worst pass defense Ive ever seen in all the years Ive watched football ... and thats a lotta years.


The Chargers have probably the best passing attack in the league .... and Gates will play , you can count on that.

The Texans are 2-2 at home , the Chargers have yet to win on the road. They are bound to win one sometime ....


The Texans pass protection sucks , the Chargers pass rush is pretty good ....


Add it up and you get the reaction that many have given here.

The AFC West is the AFC West. The Broncos started 6-0 last year. The
Chiefs haven't really played the meat of their schedule yet. San Diego
is talented and veteran enough to go 11-5, even though they've started
3-5. The Chiefs are VERY young, and they may or may not win that
division.

You know, people were talking about all the injuries the Colts had, that was going to make it easier for us to beat them. Austin Collie, Dallas Clark, Joseph Addai, & Donald Brown.

Other than Collie or Clark, Addai & Brown really haven't been all that in their wins over the Texans.... at least not last year.

They also still had Garcon and Gonzales, many people think Gonzo was going to be their #2 receiver & that Garcon & Collie were going to be battling for the 3rd spot. So losing Collie & Clark, though a big deal, wasn't as big as it was being played.

San Diego will be playing without Vincent Jackson, Malcom Floyd, & Legedu Naanee (who has been having a great season). Phillip Rivers is not Peyton Manning, and doesn't share his ability to make receivers look great.

Even though Rivers had a big day against the Titans with that rag-tag bunch, I don't think it's any kind of guarantee he'll have a big day against us.

You know, people were talking about all the injuries the Colts had, that was going to make it easier for us to beat them. Austin Collie, Dallas Clark, Joseph Addai, & Donald Brown.

Other than Collie or Clark, Addai & Brown really haven't been all that in their wins over the Texans.... at least not last year.

They also still had Garcon and Gonzales, many people think Gonzo was going to be their #2 receiver & that Garcon & Collie were going to be battling for the 3rd spot. So losing Collie & Clark, though a big deal, wasn't as big as it was being played.

San Diego will be playing without Vincent Jackson, Malcom Floyd, & Legedu Naanee (who has been having a great season). Phillip Rivers is not Peyton Manning, and doesn't share his ability to make receivers look great.

Even though Rivers had a big day against the Titans with that rag-tag bunch, I don't think it's any kind of guarantee he'll have a big day against us.
I agree that Rivers is no Manning and he has none of his receivers. The real key here is if they Texans decide to double team Antonio Gates, otherwise he's going to kill us all day long. So far no team has done that against Gates, and he's tearing it up on the receiving side.

This is definitely a winnable game, as I think every game this season is, but the real question is 1) do the 2nd half Texans show up in the first half 2) do we exploit weakness and sloppy play by the Chargers

Kubiak said something stupid in his last press conference, that we wanted to force the Colts to run the ball..... yeah, right...

Anyway, if we can shut down their run game (which we haven't been doing a good job of).... a TE won't beat us.

Best case scenario for a lot of folks on the board...and this PAINS me to say...would be a Charger rout.

Kind of hard for me to believe Texans fans would be rooting for their team to be routed.

As an aside, the Chargers are favored to win by 3.

NOBODY'S rooting for this team to be routed, a lot of us SUSPECT
they WILL BE.

Huge distinction, please make it.

Uh... work on your reading comprehension.... please.

If you've watched any Texans game last season (I've watched about
3 of them in full,) you'll see that they are explosive on offense AND defense.
The reason they are 9-7 in 2009, is because of timely turnovers and special
teams. They actually lost against the Colts because their running back fumbled on the 1 yard line.



Fixed it for ya....

Im not "rooting for them to be routed" by any stretch of the imagination.



Nobody said you were. Shark316 said it would be in the best interest of some fans that the Texans get routed.

I said I find it hard to believe a Texans fan would root for our team to get routed.

35-14 Chargers. They have a better defense than the Giants, and Rivers is on pace for 5200 yards...before he has played the Texans. He will probably be over 3000 after this game :mariopalm:

The Chargers beat a hot Titan team .

The Texans lost to a beat up team on a big stage .

Teams that don't show up , don't want it enough for me to be optimistic .

San Diego 38 Texans 17 .

I'm predicting Schaub will shred the SD secondary with the Texans special teams capitalizing on mistakes by the Chargers

It's time to reverse the trend with 1-3 record tomorrow! :doot:

Last game: L 35-10 -- Oct 28, 2007 -- San Diego, CA

I bet we see that heavy run game everyone wanted to see last week.

I doubt Schaub's got his head cleared yet. He seems to be able to perform in a pinch, when he doesn't have time to think.

From here on out, I think we're going to pound the rock, keep the defense off the field, and go to Matt, when we absolutely have to.
