View Full Version : The Texans might beat the Jets

I think the losses this year have made me a little loopy or delusional. I keep having these thoughts that maybe, just maybe the Texans can put it together after a faith rattling loss this past Sunday to the Jaguars and defeat the Jets.

Yes, the Jets, and yes, it is in the Meadowlands. That spells disaster in any language. But I think everyone can agree that this team is talented. Maybe not one of the most talented in the league, but whenever you field Schaub, AJ, Foster, Walter, Cushing, Mario and A. Smith you have a fighters chance, and anything can happen.

I have had an L for this game since the Schedule came out. And you cant blame me. We all remember when this same Jets team came down to Houston and kicked the living crap out of our team. I am wishing for the love of the football gods that the coaches and players realize things have got to change. Our coaching style, schemes, execution from players and that they need to fight tooth and nail to get the job done to get us back on track to a 10 win season and into the playoffs.

I know this is off the wall for me, and probably a pipe dream, but its all i've got for this season. This will be my one and only Texans/Kubiak sunshine club post this year if we lose. In turn you can effectively spend that money you are saving for playoff tickets if they lose this week. The deck is stacked against us, and it wont be an easy task. But nothing in life worth achieving is easy to obtain.

I won't be holding my breath waiting for a victory that would require our secondary to cover Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes and Jerricho Cotchery.

We made Ajirotutu look like a Hall of Famer.

I'm thinking that you need to share whatever it is your taking!!
It sure isn't the kool-aid because that is sour about now.
I really hope you are right and they can pull one out their collective butts and win and I'll be rooting for that to happen (yes I'm a glutton for punishment, especially since I live in NJ).
But, in my reality mode, I'm more excited to see what crazy thing is going to happen that costs us the game.
The football gods are not happy with the Texans or their fans for some reason so the wrath will come down again.

So now back from reality-GO TEXANS!!! you can beat the Jets!!

I am actually going to be at this game and am holding out hope as well. There is absolutely no valid reason to believe we will win or even compete: Our defense blows; an away game at a tough venue; Revis has a history of success against our main threat, AJ; and these aggressive styles of defense have always given us trouble.

That being said, we are a desperate franchise and the Jets may relax a bit recognizing all of the factors above - as they have done the past two weeks. It is a very long shot, but frankly all we have...

Sorry, fellas, but I simply cannot indulge in your misguided optimism at the moment.

The Jets are a physical team that the Texans simply have no answer for, and once the Jets punch our team in the mouth, the finesse will get panicky and start chucking the ball up. NY's secondary is licking their chops right now, and their D-line is preparing the marinade for some grilled Schaub.

Oh yeah, and that Sanchez kid, he'll look like a Hall of Famer against this atrocious defense of ours. It's not even a prediction at this point but an expectation. I would challenge them to defy me, but that would require some semblance of sack.

Yeah, any given Sunday, anything is possible, yada yada yada, but let's be pragmatic about it.

Love my country but dislike the president. Love my team but have lost complete faith in this year's product. Sorry to be a downer about it, but this pathetic team deserves no better at this point.

You know, you're right. It's the kind of game that, by all accounts and predictions, the Texans are supposed to lose. I only wish the Patriots were the game after for the Jets instead of the Bengals, so we could benefit from NY looking ahead.

Last year, Kubiak had no runningbacks, and attempted to run the ball A LOT.

This year, he has a 3-deep stable of backs, yet chooses NOT to run, hardly
enough. He benched Slaton, because the kid isn't built to run the ball
up the middle. Yet, Kubiak refuses to play Slaton and use his skills in
his BEST position (slot and screens.) Foster damn-near has to beg for
carries, no matter how often he shows how special of a back he is.
Pulling Foster at the goalline against San Diego was INEXCUSABLE.

Kubiak has gotten progressively dumber as a coach, and there's nothing
that'll save this team. Most people have focused on the Glover Quin play,
but look at that disorganized MESS on the 8 or 10 snaps BEFORE it, and
you'll see the ineptitude of this staff to have their team focused and
organized.

There are no creampuff NFC West or AFC East teams to clean up on this year.
Every one of the next SEVEN opponents have a LOT riding on their matchup
with the Texans. The Texans are known by everyone in the NFL as the
softest team on the schedule. They've done NOTHING to change that.
Slaton being buried on the bench is something I just don't get. The Texans
have erased screens and draws from their playbooks. When they dust
one off, it surprises even Andre Johnson who tackles a linebacker instead
of setting up the screen.

The coaching is now being fully exposed as the overriding element against
this team's success. No level of talent can make up for poor gameday
strategy.

4-9 folks. I'm calling it. This team will lose seven consecutive games,
not just four.

I just wonder who will put one in the history books first, Sanchez or Vick! As long as it's not VY I guess it doesn't matter. I'm thinking Vick will put up over 500 yds on us on a cold, wet, winter night in Philly. Sometimes I hate myself.

When the schedule came out, I was happy about playing the Jets again. I thought we'd get a little pay-back.

But I don't know that this team has it in them.

You'd think they would get pissed, & beat somebody up, anybody.

But even in our wins, you can't say we're beating anybody up.

We get knocked on our keister, and get back up...... but it's like we're waiting for someone to knock'em back down.

I have calculated the odds of us winning this game:

I figure that we have a 25% chance of winning this game, versus 75% for the Jets. In addition, if this game is in the 25% category, we have a 50% chance of beating ourselves, leaving us with 12.5% overall chance of us winning this game.

11-16-2010, 07:05 PM
I'll go ahead and say we win this one. The Jets are the luckiest team in the league, having pulled their two latest wins out of their asses in Detroit and Cleveland.

We'll be out for blood. They beat us on paper, but I think we'll get up for this one. The Jets arent world-beaters.

And no, that's not to say this will touch off some miracle run.

Hopefully, they will come out with a badass attitude and beat the living crap out of the Jets, like the Jets did us last year. There's talent on our team, they just defeat themselves, with a lot of help from the sideline. They have something to prove, like showing the NFL they are NOT the laughing stock of the entire league.

We were 4-2 at the time, and on our bye week the same week as the Colts who were playing at home.

Not making excuses just pointing out that they were just as primed to win as we were. Now we have a losing record, and we are getting a chance at payback on the jets for what happened last year.

I think their pride is a little more at steak now than in week 8.

What good is it now for the players to come out and play like pros when it's the second half of the season and our playoff chances are slim to none?? Why not come out from the start of the season with everything you got instead of waiting to go on a 3 game losing streak and get blasted by the fans and media????


And yes I agree, McNair needs to fire all the coaches asap and let them go deer hunting as that season just started.

On the bolded part, they should play like pro's because that's their job. A nicely paid job I might add. But even at that, I would still lay the huge majority of the blame for this sorry ass season on the coaching staff not the players.

Yes, we've got a talented team, yes, they've teased us for years.

But why do we think we're the Colts, or the Patriots, or whoever last year's super bowl champs were?

Before last weeks game, I was putting together stats for this season to compare the two teams...... Texans & Jags. I found out we're extremely similar. I tried to break it down to just the 3 games before our match-up..... the same. It was freaky. Then before the game, CBS showed a graphic showing we were 8-8 vs the Jaguars & the stats were damn near identical.

That's when it dawned on me. Whatever we think of the Jags, that's who we really are.

I doubt the Jags have given up on this season.

When the schedule came out, I was happy about playing the Jets again. I thought we'd get a little pay-back.

But I don't know that this team has it in them.

You'd think they would get pissed, & beat somebody up, anybody.

But even in our wins, you can't say we're beating anybody up.

We get knocked on our keister, and get back up...... but it's like we're waiting for someone to knock'em back down.

Like that inflatable clown you got when you were 5.

This. I'd like for us, just once this year, to get up big on somebody, and not let them off the floor. Be the Eagles to the other team's Redskins from Monday night. Apparently, though, either that's not our style or we simply don't have what it takes to do that. I'm starting to think it's more of the latter.

This game is a "L" easy. The way this team plays defense, it doesn't deserve to win another game. Its just plain pathetic and painful to watch.

It's not only the defense..... forget that, this offense (stats be damned....... & I'm a stat guy).

They have no idea if they want to be a passing team a running team, can't make adjustments until halftime....

It took them 10 weeks to understand that they're a rhythm offense & couldn't work it in until half-time.

Sorry, fellas, but I simply cannot indulge in your misguided optimism at the moment.
The Jets are a physical team that the Texans simply have no answer for, and once the Jets punch our team in the mouth, the finesse will get panicky and start chucking the ball up. NY's secondary is licking their chops right now, and their D-line is preparing the marinade for some grilled Schaub.


100% Agree. I wish I could think the Texans have a chance.

I would think we had a chance in this game if our defense wasn't so bad against the pass.

I just don't see how we'd ever be able to put an opponent away and we can barely raise a fist to fight their aerial asault.

Add to that our offense usually plays soft against physical teams...I just don't see how we win this one unless the team actually comes out and plays fired up football...

They haven't don't that at all this year so I'm not optimistic.

If things hold true for my fantasy team -

when I sit or drop a player who is not producing or producing less than someone else on the bench - they will usually have a lights outs game and the one I put in the lineup gets hurt in the first minute of the game - - -

I have sat Matt down and am starting Sanchez.

I think the losses this year have made me a little loopy or delusional. I keep having these thoughts that maybe, just maybe the Texans can put it together after a faith rattling loss this past Sunday to the Jaguars and defeat the Jets.

Yes, the Jets, and yes, it is in the Meadowlands. That spells disaster in any language. But I think everyone can agree that this team is talented. Maybe not one of the most talented in the league, but whenever you field Schaub, AJ, Foster, Walter, Cushing, Mario and A. Smith you have a fighters chance, and anything can happen.

I have had an L for this game since the Schedule came out. And you cant blame me. We all remember when this same Jets team came down to Houston and kicked the living crap out of our team. I am wishing for the love of the football gods that the coaches and players realize things have got to change. Our coaching style, schemes, execution from players and that they need to fight tooth and nail to get the job done to get us back on track to a 10 win season and into the playoffs.

I know this is off the wall for me, and probably a pipe dream, but its all i've got for this season. This will be my one and only Texans/Kubiak sunshine club post this year if we lose. In turn you can effectively spend that money you are saving for playoff tickets if they lose this week. The deck is stacked against us, and it wont be an easy task. But nothing in life worth achieving is easy to obtain.

Kubiak will go from this...

We were 4-2 at the time, and on our bye week the same week as the Colts who were playing at home.

Not making excuses just pointing out that they were just as primed to win as we were. Now we have a losing record, and we are getting a chance at payback on the jets for what happened last year.

I think their pride is a little more at steak now than in week 8.

Except they had freaking stock boys playing WR and TE. We knew their weakness and instead decided to attack their strength.

No.

The best anyone of us can do is "any given Sunday". Or some sort of karmatic response to how all of us are sick of the team's crap. We're all about ready to deboard the train so they'll fire up the engines. Grand. It'll probably happen.

Go Texans. Go Texans Go.

On a side note, I noticed a few mentions about "the annual 4 losing streak" and would like to think that a few people read my post about just that.

Okay, I've got this pink soap hovering over my avatar..... I think it's affecting my attitude, as I've been more negative than usual.

We're not all perfect, for me to "demand" that anyone is perfect just ain't right for me.

So here's the deal, see if you agree.

If we hold the Jets under 24 points (& I understand the probability of that) I'm ditching the soap. You won't see me talking about how great this defense is or anything like that (trust me).... I won't list the excuses I've already tabulated for Frank Bush's performance (IMHO, I don't think he's doing a heck of a job, & I believe our HC has the bar set way too low if he in fact told FB that behind closed doors).

I don't know that we can score 13 on the Jets anyway, so I don't know that it matters. But if they score less than 24 (which we haven't done all season) I'm taking down the soap.

Why? I don't understand the reasoning here. I mean, even if we go out and beat the Jets by 20 points, that doesn't change the way things have gone around here for the last 5 years. Surely you decided to use the pink soap based on an opinion you have formed about Kubiak during his entire 5 years as our coach, right? 1 single game really shouldn't have that much effect on the overall opinion. I know it won't for me.

My thought is simple, I don't know what the betting line is, and I don't really need to, I would put money on the Jets to cover whatever the spread might be.
The Texans are already sliding, and they're about to crumble. Bet on it.
I'll take the Jets and the under.


Keep in mind, I've traditionally been a homer, and relatively optimistic...

I don't think they're worried about any "trap" games. They've had to work for their wins this year, I don't think any were gimmes.

Especially since week 5.

I see your point, I just disagree. I think the Texans lose this game by 10 points or more. Our D will make Sanchez look great, and I really don't believe our offense is going to choose this game, on the road, against a D that humiliated them the last time they played, to finally get well against the 3-4.
Sorry, I do get your point, I just can't see it happening.

Hi, Jets fan here.

I like to think I'm realistic... I give the Texans a good shot at winning this game. You guys have a better combo of talent and experience than the Browns or Lions, that is for sure.

You certainly have a very high powered offense...

To win, the Texans should exploit some of the Jets weaknesses:

1. We have trouble covering the tight end, our other weakness in coverage is CB #3, find him and go after him (different guys play the 3)
2. We have difficulty getting to the QB without sending a blitz. If Schaub has a good quick release going then we will be in trouble that way...
3. Also have trouble covering the halfback screen
4. If it's windy, get opportunistic on defense. Sanchez struggles in the wind.

So as you can see, you have a number of things going for you.

One part of this match up that I like for my team is that you do not seem to be a very physical team defense... we tend to do well against non-physical defenses.
