View Full Version : The Texans Schedule after Baltimore

Let's be positive for once.

At worst, this team loses 2 out of the next three. I think we win two though(Pittsburgh,Oakland).

We won't have a tougher game all year then the game we just had, and we were the better team for 3 quarters and some of the fourth. We blew it, but we could have had that game against a superbowl contender playing at home.

The Schedule after the Baltimore game is cupcake. We should be favored every game on out.

We play two against the jags(Their qb play is awful)
Tennessee just lost Kenny Britt, for the year it looks like. Two against them
Indy is without Peyton.
Tampa Bay is a good team, but no where near the Saints.
Atlanta will be tough but were playing a home game and I think by that time, we will be rolling along nicely.
Cincinatti is just not good.
Carolina who may win 4 games this year.

This team has a great opportunity this year. 10 games gets you a home game in the playoffs. It's very doable.

Prediction 11-5 cupcake schedule, sprinkled with two tough teams that will not be anywhere near as good as a Saints team playing at home(Tampa,Atlanta).

Totally agree with the sentiment here.

In this divison the Titans are the only ones who pose any threat to the Texans winning the divison.

Besides the 2 vs. the Texans, the Titans have the following games left:

@Browns L
@Steelers L
Colts W
Bengals W
@Panthers W
@Falcons L
Bucs L
@Bills L
Saints L
@Colts W
Jags W

They're 2-1 already.

Just to be fair, lets say the home teams win, Texans-Titans split 1-1

I'm predicting they go 5-6 vs. everyone else.

Thats an 8-8 year for the Titans.

The Texans can win this divison at 9-7.

It's been said for a while now, but this year it's for real. The Texans are in a perfect position to take this division and have a home game in the playoffs. They have a soft last half of the season schedule and three poor division opponents. If they can't win the division this year, they never will.

I was just looking at the remainder of the schedule this morning. We should end up losing only 5.

Losses come from @Saints, @Ravens, @Titans, @Bucs, Falcons.

I think we'll get out of the first 6 games at 3-3 or 4-2 and only lose once or twice more for the remainder of the season.

It sets up quite well for us.

Many people are worried about redzone offense but look no further than Arian Foster. We go from one of the worst redzone teams to one of the best with him. If you don't believe me, look at 09 to 10. Don't get me wrong, Ben Tate is a more than adequate backup, but Foster is your guy. His vision is elite, and he gives Schuab more comfort back in the pocket knowing he has an excellent pocket protector as well as a dump off option who makes the first guy miss almost everytime. I have a hard time getting down on them after a game like yesterdays. It's Drew Brees, heck our defense shut him down for a half. I'd say that's pretty good.

I'd be real happy with 11-5 but I don't see it. The Texans being the Texans will probably win the division with a 9-7 or 8-8 record not beating their own best 9-7 record. And don't count out the Titans yet. Don't forget Kubiak is still the head coach.:kitten:

I wouldn't take them lightly but it's reported that Kenny Britt tore his acl. That is by far their best playmaker.

i think posters above me are only considering which teams we can beat rest of season and that is ok. I and some others are looking at what went wrong and what can/will be done to fix it. I'm not going to call you names like polyannas or homers, etc but don't call me names either. Some fans can watch a game and enjoy the 3 hours and then it is basically gone from the mind. I just don't do that.

It'd be dumb not to try and account for him in practices and game plans though. If Britt is seriously out, it's him and hasselbeck that are their "play makers".

Their defense looks solid again. Must be something in the water there.

I think you guys can take the Falcons and Bucs easy. Matt Ryan is choking this season away. If Vick didn't get hurt they're 0-3 right now. The Bucs will be the tougher of those two games but if y'all get out to an early lead (i.e. yesterday) they won't be able to mount a ridiculous comeback like the Saints.

As far as the Titans, ya'll have the better team, but it's divisional so ya never know. Maybe Andre will give innegan another beat down?

@Ravens will be rough, but not impossible. If Foster is back by then, chances improve drastically.

Schaub was not getting in on that last play. I was wanting them to run a quick slant like the 1st td of the game that way we would of had time for two plays.

when there was that 15 yard facemask called on the last play I thought they should of put time back on the clock. Wasn't the clock running until we got back to the line of scrimage, almost ready to run the next play?

Yep -- I think in that situation with 8 seconds left you should be thinking about TWO plays. Look for a quick slant or a TE in the end zone, and if it isn't there immediately, throw it out the back of the end zone and run another play. (And for God's sake, don't take a sack.)

The problem here, though, is that I think despite the loss of those two players they still had a chance, and easily could have won this game. I think the coaching tends to handcuff the offense in the second half and are setting Schaub and the rest of the cast up for failure. They make the opponent's job a lot easier.

I'm not sure what plays you guys are wanting them to run. We couldn't run the ball against them. Our wr's were not getting open. Matt had no time to throw the ball. Jacoby sucks! Our only advantage were our te's against their lb's and our rb's out of the backfield. And thats where we attacked them, right where we had an advantage. So to all you saying our playcalling sucks, what plays would you of run? What mismatches would you of taken advantage of?

Schaub would have to be Michael Vick to run that in. He had a LB just waiting for him. It wasn't gonna happen.

Yes, things are looking bad right now with a couple of tough games coming up, but take a look at the last 9 games of the season and tell me we're not going to make a serious run...

We might win in Tennessee anyway; we ARE better than them and Pittsburgh proved it today. I just don't know if I can watch what's going to happen in Baltimore first. :toropalm:

Yeah, but I think this partly *because* the defense knows what to expect. Throw a wrinkle in there once in a while, a high risk/high return play instead of a predictable, conservative offensive game plan, and maybe you keep the defense honest?

Any time the defense can predict the play an offense will call, the advantage swings to the defense. At the level of the NFL, even if you have more talent, if the defense knows what's coming it can make the offense's attempt to execute a LOT harder (no excuse for the dropped passes, though). So when it looks like the players suck, I think perhaps the predictability of the offense scheme is setting them up for failure. I agree it's harder without AJ but the truth is that they show the same tendencies even when AJ is in the game.

I'm curious, there's a lot of people who discount injuries and overall team ability, instead focusing on the coach. Let's say you take an all time great coach...say Parcells. Give him our team, but take away Andre, Foster, Mario, and Joseph. Do you guys really expect this "winning" coach to find a way to win regardless? I know it's a bit extreme, but the argument then becomes, at what point do injuries affect the way the coach can lead his team?

Thank you. Even with the hesitation Schaub doesn't make it. Plus if he runs and gets stopped at the 1 time is out. If he throws a bad throw away from his receiver, like he did all game, he gets a second play. But screw that play oher teammates cost us this game.

What high risk/high return play? How 'bout a low risk/high return play?--like a short pass to a WIDE OPEN Vickers? This game was lost by Jacoby Jones, Vickers, and maybe Jason Allen. NOT ANY COACH.

To the extent one wants to play the blame game, there's enough to go around. (I already said you can't put the dropped passes on coaching.) But I still think the predictability of the Texans offense in the second half of tight games is a limiting factor.

As for JJ, the fact that the team was so thin that they *had* to go to him when JJ went down is a reflection of the coach and front office, at least in part. Yes, they have other needs as well but you don't want to be *this* thin at a skill position.

No, it's not our ceiling with Schaub. It's probably our ceiling with Jason Allen starting though....or KJ for about 4 more years. We need STARTING caliber cornerbackS, and we only have 1.

At the point when you can't point out stupid strategic decisions like forgetting about the TE as pass catchers for 2 quarters or to a decision like keeping an obviously injured G in the game even after getting schooled or the decision to not get another WR in the offseason after seeing JJones all his career and certainly enough to know he's a backup caliber player.

Kubiag pairs way too much stupid with his obvious abilities at scheming the offense.

That typed, Schaub is the weakest link on this chain in terms of whether this group can win a SB. He needs a Ravens 2000 type defense to do so. He must sweat clutch antidote.

I don't see the predictability in the second half of this game. I see it in a couple of games that we won by running the clock out. I see that. I see that we could've possibly run up the score in those games. I see that New Orleans beat us by scoring 40 points, not because our offense was conservative. I see that we stopped running the ball today because we couldn't. Conservative would have been to just keep running into a brick wall today, which we didn't.

I agree about being thin at WR, but this is the salary cap era, so basically I don't know. I know it killed me to have such crap for a secondary last year and we still only have one good CB. I don't think it's possible to have every hole filled, unless some of it comes through luck, but I could be wrong.

Jesus Christ. This forum is ****ing insufferable 80% of the time.

Is it really necessary to use Jesus' name as a cuss word? There are plenty of other words out there that you, and others, could refrain from using the guy's name that many people view as their God or Savior. Even I have enough respect for Muslims that I don't feel the need to use Mohammad as my own personal curse word.

As far as the substance of your post, yeah the players are probably more at fault. Kubiak's playcalling in the 2nd half was far too predictable and conservative, but the players have to play. After rewatching a few parts of the game, I certainly don't think Kubiak's playcalling was good. At times, it was downright lousy. But I think what contributes to people automatically blaming Kubiak is the history. This team has done this for far too long, has collapsed way too many times under pressure, and it has been a trend since Kubiak has been here that this team can only play one good half of football. The players have changed. We have some new coaches. But the one consistent element has been Gary. So it's natural to blame the guy that has been at fault some many times in the past even if he isn't necessarily the one to blame for today's loss.

Anyway looking at the rest of our games, it actually still looks pretty good.

@Baltimore- Loss
@Tennesse- Could go either way, but im gonna put up a loss
Jacksonville-Win
Cleveland- Win
@ Tampa Bay- Win
@Jacksonville- Win
Atlanta-Loss
@Cincinatti- Win
Carolina- Win
@Indy- Win
Tennesse- Win

That would leave us with an 11-5 record and probably and AFC south division title.

Making the playoffs though idk from there.

But if the offense plays the way they did today, we can straight up kiss any hopes for the playoffs goodbye.

with a healthy AJ, Foster, Daniels, Schaub, Casey, Williams and Joseph we go far into the play-offs. BUT we are built around 1 player and that is AJ, if he is out of the game than i say we dont make it past the first round.

The thing that makes me feel good is that there is no game on our schedule where I'm writing down an L. That said I don't think we can beat the Ravens in Baltimore, no matter how pissed we are from last year and today's game.

Our team needs to remember that we are capable of playing we did against the Steelers and we are capable of getting pushed around like we did today.

We got baltimore next week and we all know how that will turn out.

Then Tennesse on the road. Tennesse will be looking to get some redemption for todays loss to the steelers.

Texans could be 3-4 after 2 weeks and giving the lead up in the AFC south again.

:toropalm: If only schaub would have run it in......

I checked your math, you are correct, we could be 3-4 in 2 weeks.

I also ran the numbers and found out that we could be:

5-2
4-3
4-2-1
3-1-2

So I guess we will have to wait and see.

Baltimore is gonna kill us. Just flat out sodomize us at midfield while their fans go get nachos at halftime. Tennessee is going to do the exact same thing to us up there because we're the same fragile bunch of ******* on offense that we've always been. We'll come home and play well in a couple of "statement games" against Jacksonville and Cleveland and I'll go so far as to say that we'll beat Tampa Bay.... maybe to fool the truly gullible into putting one foot back on the bandwagon but Jacksonville is gonna split with us because that's what they do. Atlanta has an offense that knows what to do in the red zone and surprisingly so does Cincinnati. Carolina will have learned to win by the time they come here and we'll do what we're famous for. Close out the season against a weak Colts team and a Titans squad that's already earned the Division Championship and doesn't care to finish 8-8

We're still an 8-8 team not because our defense sucks but because our offense is still every bit as dysfunctional as it's always been. They just can't point the finger to the other side of the ball anymore.

No, it's not our ceiling with Schaub. It's probably our ceiling with Jason Allen starting though....or KJ for about 4 more years. We need STARTING caliber cornerbackS, and we only have 1.

It's ALWAYS the QBs fault or the HC's fault, until you know what you're talking about.It absolutely is Schaub's ceiling with this squad. Obviously any decent QB can win a SB, if surrounded by at or near Pro Bowl talent at the other 21, but this isn't that kind of team.

Parity is the watchword of the NFL, and that means it's the subtle differences that separate losers from winners. Most NFL games, and a larger % of playoff games come down to execution in crunch time. A significant part of that is execution on the last drive of the game. In crunch time and moreso on that last drive/play Schaub has proved himself lacking. He has gotten it done in a handful of games, but only against weaker teams or against playoff bound teams coasting into the postseason with locked up spots. KC last year was an exception. Against that one, nice win is a mountain of picks, sacks and head-scratching decisions.

I type this so that he may one day prove me wrong. For better or worse (more likely) we're stuck with him. You don't give up on a guy like him with nothing waiting in the wings. Now, if an intriguing prospect falls to the 3rd round next year, we have to jump on him, and let him sit until ready.

And the loss of AJ and Mario for a while might be the excuse that allows Kubiak to keep his job if the Texans miss the playoffs...
If he can get a hurricane in here, Gary might even get another extension!

Sure, the Texans could be under .500 in two weeks. It will be a surprise if they're not. They could also win the AFC South with a .500 record. That's how bad this division has become.

Yeah, I pretty much said that elsewhere when someone said it's not that impressive being the best team in a lousy division. But I disagreed -- the best team in a lousy division still makes the playoffs, while the #2 or #3 team in a strong division may not. And this has been one of the stronger divisions in the NFL in recent years, but this is a down year.

Don't follow NCAA enough to know who's there.Well, Matt Jackson's gonna try to get local momentum behind drafting Case Keenum, and no doubt Aggies will push for Tannehill, but neither are likely to be good enough to eventually beat out Schaub. One or two of Ryan Linkley, Nick Foles and Kirk Cousins should be available in the middle rounds.

I wouldn't mind taking a flyer on Keenum in the 6th/7th/UFA range.

Building a championship caliber defense is still job one in the draft. 1 and 2 should go to CB and DT.

The sad thing DexmanC is that I believe we could see Kubiak here again next year. I said this in another thread:

How about the Texans win the division with an 8-8 or 9-7 record (no better than their 9-7 non playoff year). Due to a cupcake last half of the schedule and all of our division foes with major problems. They host a playoff game because they win the division but lose. Kubiak is retained because he made the playoffs and all the koolaid drinkers rejoice. Nothing actually acomplished but all remains the same. The nightmare continues.....

I'm curious, there's a lot of people who discount injuries and overall team ability, instead focusing on the coach. Let's say you take an all time great coach...say Parcells. Give him our team, but take away Andre, Foster, Mario, and Joseph. Do you guys really expect this "winning" coach to find a way to win regardless? I know it's a bit extreme, but the argument then becomes, at what point do injuries affect the way the coach can lead his team?

I expect a coach to be able to win that game yesterday.

Not every game. Not against the Saints, not against the Packers, not against the Ravens....

But if I've got an offensive "guru" playing the 29th defense in the league.... you're damn right I expect to get a win.

You guys all freak out a little too easy. This season isn't even close to lost. In case you haven't noticed we still are tied for the division lead, with the better division record currently.

Just wait a bit - we still have 5 division games yet to lose.

:rolleyes:

There's still no reason why we shouldn't make the playoffs this year. People need to stop being so freaking whiny. Injuries are a part of football, count your lucky stars that both Mario and Andre aren't sitting on the I.R. list right now and nutt up, man up, and move on.

On the bright side of things, our schedule is quite favorable after Baltimore. I think we walk out of Baltimore 3-3 but after that I have a hard time not seeing us at 10-6 or 11-5. This of course assumes that things don't get worse on the injury front than they already are.

If only Vickers had caught that pass.....wow.

Like it's just typical or something....here's how it's gonna go:

You don't know Jack

Baltimore: Loss. Because the Texans don't beat good teams.

3-3

Tennessee: Loss. Because the Texans don't beat teams in the
division when it counts.

3-4

Jacksonville: Loss, probably on some kind of ridiculous triple tip INT pick 6 at the final whistle.

3-5

Cleveland: Win, to break up the annual mid season 4 game losing streak.

4-5

Tampa Bay: Win, to give people hope of the playoffs. Upset victory, no doubt.

5-5

Jacksonville: Loss. Didn't you hear me? THEY DON'T WIN DIVISION GAMES WHEN IT COUNTS!!!!

5-6

Atlanta: Win. I bet you still have hope, don't you?

6-6

You out yo Damn mind!!

I think overall you and I disagree on a bunch of stuff about the Texans, but I can appreciate someone getting worked up about this team whether I agree with them the majority of the time or not and I always appreciate sarcasm haha.

That last post just seemed like a fan losing their mind.....like a lot of us out of frustration haha. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Wait a minute, wouldn't they more than likely be "Heckle & Jeckle" than "Jeckle and Hyde"?

They are Ravens after all.

I'll be back on the wagon Wednesday or Thursday & we'll explore that possibility... But right now, that would just make this one (& the Saints) sting even worse.


PS: You're crazy

Let me rework that for ya - We beat the Stealers, who beat the shit out of the Titans (without their #1 receiver), who beat the shit out of the Ravens, who beat the shit out of the STEALERS and then made them eat it.

Do you really think if the RAVENS played the Titans again, that it would have the same outcome. Or even better , if the Titans had to play the RAVENS at M&T Bank stadium. It would be a straight out slaughter. Do me a favor and while you watch the TEXANS @ RAVENS, just listen to the 7 Nation Army Chant.

Of course im bias ,but the RAVENS are twice as good when at home. RAVENS fans are the real 12th man on the Defense.

It took me a minute but i found a clip.

Our history under Kubiak would indicate the Texans getting
RODE at Baltimore on Sunday. Let's see if it'll be different.

If we lose by a FG in OT he'll say we were RODE, Fire everybody, start over...
