All I hear is every single one of your picking the Texans and not one thing about the Ravens.

How come alot of Texans fans are talking up their defense so much and acting like Flacco doesn't play against good defenses. Just because you have a good defense doesn't mean anything. We have 1 of the best defenses and he practices against them every day not to mention facing the Steelers atleat 2 times a year. Come on, do you really think the Texans will win honestly? Not saying they can't, but every excuse is well Andre Johnson wasn't playing. Guess what, we've beaten the Texans with Andre playing. We were also without our best offensive lineman.

Any thoughts? I think it will be really close.

I think if we played 3 games, we'd win 1. Ravens are tough tough TOUGH at home, they have an incredible defense that is at least at the caliber of ours, Flacco is better than TJ Yates, and Ray Rice is as talented as Foster. Oh right, and no one we have can compare to Ed Reed. I would say the Texans have the edge at O-line though.

These two teams are so similar in so many ways: dominant front line, strong linebackers, great pressure, great running attacks...

This game will come down to who makes more mistakes. I predict whoever wins the turnover battle will lose the game.

That would be my opinion as well. But hey, it's a football game. Everyone should realize this could be a nailbiter or one of the teams run away with it. Anything can happen. Personally, I think either of these two teams should be able to beat the Pats or horsies after winning Sunday.

Anyone who says the Texans CANT win this is as big an idiot as someone saying the Texans WILL win this.

This is a playoff game. Neither of us are in the playoffs on a technicality. We are talking about two really good teams going head to head.

The Ravens have a superb defense that specializes in stopping the run (our greatest strength). They are playing at home, after a bye, and beat us once this year already. It is very obvious to anyone with half a brain that the Ravens SHOULD be favored to win this game.

But it should also be obvious that the Texans are not a pushover team that is going to hand you a win. We are a good team.. and if you make any mistakes we will capitalize on them (in theory). You better bring your A game cause we will bring ours.

People here pick the Texans to win because they want the Texans to win and, as fans, they see all the ways in which the Texans CAN win this game. And make no mistake about it.. this is an incredibly WINNABLE game for the Texans. Its just MORE winnable for the Ravens.

Two good teams will play on Sunday. Saying that one will clearly win is a mistake.

Seriously - Did you expect Texans fans to wallow on horror at the thought of playnig the Ravens again? The last game was VERY close until late. We're minus Schaub this time but plus A.J. The Ravens D is better than the Texans, but just barely this year. Our Offenses? Flacco isn't anywhere near the top tier, so I'd call it a wash.

I expect a close game won by the team that makes the fewest mistakes.

There's going to be some of us saying we will definitely win and there will be you guys saying you can definitely beat us in Baltimore. If evverything were lining up, we wouldn't have lost to Seattle and Jacksonville. But, at home, we're almost unbeatable. You can't be made at people for favoring the Ravens because we've been here before with an experienced QB at home. Not many teams beat us. Look at the playoff teams we've played this year.

So much is placed on Flacco being elite/not elite. He's not elite at all. Not many QBs are and I don't know what Texans fans or the media wants us to do. He'll never be Brady or Brees, but guess what, Schaub absolutely isn't "elite." I'd take Flacco over Yates/Schaub all day.

I know I'll be there and I'm sure I'll hear about it from Raven's fans. But that's okay...I can handle it-I've been to an Eagles game!

That being I think most of the people here know this will be a close game, two badass defenses playing each other, two great running games and two okay pass Os. Could go either way.

I can easily see this turning into a game that hinges on a Field Goal or two...and damn that makes me nervous.

And you can't be mad at Texans fans for believing we can win.

Look, if both teams play at an equally high level the Ravens are almost certainly going to win this game. My hope, at least, is that the Ravens have a mediocre game and we play near flawless. Longshot, yeah probably. Possibility? Absolutely.

Close game & Ravens are good. Texans win as:
1. Yates just needs to not make stupid decisions and turnovers. Pressure is on Flacco who has much more pressure on. Not sure blitzes will work on him & Wade will surprise with his game plan.

2. Game 6 versus now? Texans defense have the Phillips plan in their veins now.
3. Rice is very good & had great prior game. Don't see him doing better than 100. We handle RBs well now.
4. Foster/Tate/Ward will be too much. I look for Arian to get some plays off allowing him to end strong. 30 carries and a few more passes to our backs.
5. Kubiak will loosen up a little on Yates.
6. AJ will make a statement.
7. Phillips decision not to interview will be a motivator.
8. Jacoby Jones will have at least one big play.
9. Our DBs will have at least 3 INTs
10. Rackers will be on target.

I honestly think the Texans can win this one, but I think the Ravens can win it, as well.

The Texans are clearly underdogs, and I won't even try to dispute it. Having a rookie QB in the second round of the playoffs is what it is.

However, he's not expected to carry the team. The cast around him - from AJ to Foster to Daniels to that offensive line - are great. And our defense is up their with the Ravens.

I think it will come down to who makes the mistake(s). Both teams are certainly capable of winning, but I think the Ravens have the edge with experience and homefield advantage.

However, don't expect the Texans to be pushovers. I might be completely wrong, but I think the Texans have nothing to lose and will play lights out football, while the Ravens have all the pressure and everything to lose right now.

Wow your post made me see the light, I mean there is no chance BALT slips in a bad game (BAL 7 @ JAC 12 - BAL 13 @ TEN 26 - BAL 17 @ SEA 22). The Texans dont match up at all with BALT (both top 5 DEF - both top 10 Run Off HOU #2 BALT #10) BALT is at home so I guess HOU should just stay home and get an early start on the offseason because no teams ever lose at home right. I say lets play the game and see what happens we will support our team and you support yours.

Balt should win this game. If the Texans win I won't be surprised. The Texans have shown that they can win several types of games. We have a great shot to win. I don't think we're favorites but there are a lot of things that Balt can do to give the game to the Texans. One of those is for Flacco to play bad and this wouldn't be the first time he has had a bad game. If Cam calls a game where he tries to put the game on Flaco's shoulders that is bad for you guys. In all honesty if either QB throws the ball 30+ times I would be shocked if that team wins the game. I would guess that whoever's QB throws the ball the most times loses the game.

Anybody that is basing the outcome of this game from the week six match up, is missing the point. All of the analyst are trying to base their predictions off of nothing more than the Ravens home field adv. and the week 6 meeting. This is not, I repeat not even remotely the same Houston team the Ravens saw in week 6. Clearly the Texans are underdogs in this game, but any previous match ups are irrelevant. What Balt. saw was a shocked and staggering version of what they will actually see this Sunday. Even with Yates under center, this team is much more dynamic than they were in week 6 or in previous meetings. Good luck Ravens, everyone else keep hatin' and we intend to keep rollin' !!! Bull on Parade!!! My boys will be comin' home for a victory party!!!

All I hear is every single one of your picking the Texans and not one thing about the Ravens.. This may be a bit of a reach, but :thinking: It's a Texans message board. And NO, not "every single one". I for example refrained from predicting the score. In perusing the Ravens message boards, they were doing the same thing, so what's your point?

I thought it was every single one of us, now it's just a lot? FTR, Flacco sucks, but he's your problem. That said to make you happy, I'm calling the Texans FO and cancelling the flight to Baltimore because apparently they don't need to play the game since it's a foregone Baltimore win. :rolleyes:

This game is strength vs strength our def vs your run game our run game vs your def. If either team has to win thru the QB that will spell trouble. Flacco is not better than Schaub, if Schaub both can fold under preasure but i'd take Schaub. Put it this way if Rice and Boldin were out could Flacco still win? Schaub did without Foster and AJ. People act like BALT destroyed the Texans in week 6 it was 14-16 in the 4th qtr and you guys got some breaks an obivous drop ball counted as a catch. Non calls for facemask and roughing Schuab. This is a new game wk 6 means nothing, the 0-5 vs BALT means nothing.

2011 stats
Schaub 10gm 2479yds 15tds 6ints 8.5 yards per pass

Flacco 16gm 3610yds 20tds 12ints 6.7 yards per pass

I agree. it will be a very close game, and in very close games, all it takes is one mistake from Flacco/Yates and thats the ball game. Is it terribly far fetched to think that Flacco could have a bad game and cost the Ravens? I believe its possible that Yates could cost us everything. Will be the most physical of the play-off games this weekend. And the winner is Super Bowl bound, IMO.

01-13-2012, 01:00 PM
I think the Ravens should rightfully be favored in this game, but IMO, this is about as close to a classic trap game as you can get, especially for being a playoff game.

Ravens are getting all the attention, hype, and are being heavily picked to win.
They're about to face a young, hungry team that absolutely THRIVES on emotion. A team that probably feels like they are being completely overlooked, and maybe even disrespected nationally.
Oh, make no mistake, this isn't going to be the same team that played in Baltimore earlier this year.
THAT Texans team probably didn't really expect to win that game, deep down inside.
THIS Texans team goes onto this game with no doubt whatsoever that they are capable of beating the Ravens.

Am I predicting a win? Probably wouldn't go so far as to predicit the win, but I think the Texans will play even better than they did last time around.

In a prediction thread, I actually picked the Ravens winning by 4. I was definitely in the minority in picking the Ravens. I actually hesitated in posting in that thread, in fear of jinxing the Texans, and to simply avoid getting jumped all over by other Texans fans for claiming to not "support my team". So I'm thinking alot of others are thinking like me, and simply not posting they think the Ravens will win.

At the same time, what do you expect? Fans are always going to have more belief in their team than others. You guys see a 3rd string rookie QB, we see a budding star with tons of potential. You see an Arian Foster that you shut down in week 6, we see the best RB in the league that won't be shut down twice. You see a hobbling Andre Johnson, we see an AJ close to 100% and 5x better than any other receiver we have.

But like someone else said, if the Texans & Ravens play 3 times, Ravens will win twice. So here's to hoping the Texans one win will come this Sunday!!!

Initially I was a little skeptical...but with spewing colons like yourself saying how my team lost as soon as their names appeared on a schedule I hope our defense puts Flacco on his back so damned much that he'll leave the field not knowing what planet he's on. it's my sincerest hope that if your team DOES win this one that they LIMP into New England the following week to be BRUTALIZED by New England and Belecheat.

I guarantee you that a MAJOR topic in the Ravens locker room is reminding the players not to buy into the hype, not to believe the media, not to believe the predictions.

Coaches and veteran players are probably constantly telling the younger players to focus on this week, ignore what the pundits and fans are saying. Don't look past the Texans.

Basically, they're reinforcing to the team that looking past the Texans is a valid thing to do, but it's something they SHOULDN'T do.

That's psychological sabotage... lol

I pointed this out to Ravenator. Playoff experience is a cliche but when you tear down the walls of literature what really has the experience been? Losing and more often than not in the division game.

Fan hood aside...I'd say there are probably two ways this game might play out. If it's a blowout, it's all Ravens and the national media will rejoice. If it's a dog fight....I'd hold onto your hat if I was you. This offense continues to move with or without it's best weapon and unlucky for you and your team, it's WITH AJ. This defense is lean, mean and ready to fly through your t.v. screen!!!

Do I think they are going to win? Hell yeah I do.

Am I nervous? Hell yeah I am.

J Jo has a lot of experience against Flacco, I think he baits him into a bad throw and gets a pick possibly even a pick 6 in this game.

It's going to come down to turnovers and whoever makes the least mistakes. I think it gets decided by a field goal late in the 4th. It should be a great game.

All the pressure is on Baltimore at this point anyway, Texans have already overachieved and none of the talking heads think they can win it.

Week 6 means nothing at this point, the Texans are playing some of the best team football I have seen in awhile and the best I have ever seen from this franchise.

Fun fact: Houston is 4-1 against the AFC North this year.

I think the Ravens should rightfully be favored in this game, but IMO, this is about as close to a classic trap game as you can get, especially for being a playoff game.

Ravens are getting all the attention, hype, and are being heavily picked to win.
They're about to face a young, hungry team that absolutely THRIVES on emotion. A team that probably feels like they are being completely overlooked, and maybe even disrespected nationally.
Oh, make no mistake, this isn't going to be the same team that played in Baltimore earlier this year.
THAT Texans team probably didn't really expect to win that game, deep down inside.
THIS Texans team goes onto this game with no doubt whatsoever that they are capable of beating the Ravens.

Am I predicting a win? Probably wouldn't go so far as to predicit the win, but I think the Texans will play even better than they did last time around.


Why is it only "The Texans are a much different team than the week 6 team." The result of week 6 doesn't matter. It's week 6!!!!! But somehow, the Ravens didn't get better since week 6? hmmm


You say you're playing the best team football you've ever seen.....you lost 3 out of your last 4 games and 3 out of 4 were at home.

Did the Ravens hire a new DC and install a new defense in the shortened offseason? Did you dramatically alter the makeup of your defensive backfield with a big FA acquisition? Or are you basically the same team you were last year?

You are quickly showing yourself to be an uninformed Ravens homer. The Texans are much better than you realize.

I think it will be a relatively close game. I do NOT place any thought into it "may be a trap game." Seriously, who in hell believes there is such a thing as a trap game in the playoffs?

I guarantee you the Ravens coaches and players are not sitting in front of their HDTV's, watching the NFL Network and trying to decide whther it would be better to take down Brady at Gillette, or be the ones to end Tebowmania, knowing that one team, the Houston Texans, stand in their way to making it to the AFCC and possibly a SB. No way in hell.This morning (Jan 13th) a Houston radio show had radio guest on air from Baltimore and that guy said the fans are all talking Pats not Texans. You are probably correct about the team.

You say you're playing the best team football you've ever seen.....you lost 3 out of your last 4 games and 3 out of 4 were at home.

I was referring to the 7 game win streak and first round of the playoffs against Cincy. Some of the best team football in the NFL. Complete team in all phases.

We lost the last three, coming off of 7 wins in a row.

Carolina whipped us good, it was a good time to bring us back down a bit, we had just wrapped up the Division, and there was a let down but it was bound to happen.

We should have never lost to Indy, that was terrible, but again I think we learned big from that.

Don't count the one against the Titans on Jan. 1st to mean a damn thing. We rested key starters and played backups most of the game. Even had a TE playing LB. And didn't go for the tie at the end to avoid OT and risk more injuires.

We seemed to get right back on track last week, didn't we? So if you think those 3 losses didn't mean something to this team, you're wrong.

You guys struggled against the Browns, and got blown out by San Diego the last 2 of 3 games of the season WHILE you were fighting Pitt for the division. And then beat Cincy by 8, we just whipped them by 21 pts.

What else you got?

Here's the thing, if Baltimore comes out and plays like they usually do at home, without anything special, they can probably win this game. UNLESS the Texans play ABOVE their normally good game, it's going to be difficult for the Texans to pull this out.

However, that doesn't mean the Texans won't play at another level Sunday. They are fully capable of that and we've all seen them do it. There is no reason not to believe the Texans can't win this game, because they can. They just have to elavate their game more than the Ravens do.

I have given the Ravens their due. I haven't even picked the Texans to win. I have simply predicted a knock down, drag out that will come down to one score in the 4th, probably the team who takes care of the ball the best wins.

Ravens are a very tough team at home with tons of playoff experience. I haven't once dimissed this, and I have seen many of our fans giving them props.

While on the other hand, I don't see their fans, their writers, or national media even giving us a chance at all. I hope all the hype has permeated into the locker room....I love the underdog role.

We've had the under dog role our entire existence. Even with the best defense in 2000, that still didn't matter and we were a long shot to with the Super Bowl, but anything can happen. Just like any team can win on Sunday.

What's better, week 6 of the season with a BRAND NEW defensive scheme or week 19?

Personally, I'll take the 3+ months of experience. We have AJ back, and Foster is over his hammy issue. We went on a 7 game win streak directly after. Let me know if any of that sounds like improvement.

All I hear is every single one of your picking the Texans and not one thing about the Ravens.

How come alot of Texans fans are talking up their defense so much and acting like Flacco doesn't play against good defenses. Just because you have a good defense doesn't mean anything. We have 1 of the best defenses and he practices against them every day not to mention facing the Steelers atleat 2 times a year. Come on, do you really think the Texans will win honestly? Not saying they can't, but every excuse is well Andre Johnson wasn't playing. Guess what, we've beaten the Texans with Andre playing. We were also without our best offensive lineman.

Any thoughts? I think it will be really close.

My first thought is that you just asked a really silly question. Of course we think we are going to win. Just like you think you are going to win. It's b/c this is a Texans message board and this is our team.

My second thought is our defense is better than your defense. Our running game is better than your running game. Our 1 receiver is better than both your receivers combined. Our TE's are better than your TE's. Our offensive line is better than your offensive line.

The wild card is the QB position. If Yates plays up to his abilities and doesn't pull a Schaub and shrink under the lights, this games is ours to win or lose.

I like the Ravens. I think they are a damn good team, just ours is a little bit better.

I can't wait for Sunday, it's going to be a great game.

Our offense consists of one veteran WR, a new FB, a rookie WR, Ray Rice, two second year tight ends. To say we are the same team as last year shows you don't know a damn thing about the Ravens. Not only did we get younger, but we are a lot quicker this year also. Both of our CB's weren't starters on last years team for the most part with Webb playing sparingly.

You mean you had typical offseason turnover? Who'd have thunk it. I didn't see anyone say you're EXACTLY the same team. Did you switch from the 4-3 to the 3-4 or have you been running that scheme and personnel for years? Kinda was the point.

Not only did we get younger, but we are a lot quicker this year also. Both of our CB's weren't starters on last years team for the most part with Webb playing sparingly. Now we have Jimmy Smith, our first round pick, playing lights out..(good luck getting off the line Jacoby Jones with him in your face.)

Good call though we are exactly the same team we were last year.

We have a new DC, a switch from 43 to 34 with no off season, a multitude of key player injuries including having to start a 5th round rookie at QB that didn't even get an invite to combine last year. We have only one real starter at CB and we have a starting safety who has never played that position before.

Jones you say? He is our 3rd receiver so if your key to stopping us is stopping JJ..........

Cool we got it. You did not need to start a new thread to say that. You didn't need to keep chanting it either. You are involved in what we call a pissing contest... not a discussion.

The Ravens did have a new DC this year. Greg Mattison left to go coach the defense at Michigan. Along with a new defensive coordinator who is getting back to old ravens football of blitzing and bringing the heat, we're also dealing with losing four huge veterans from previous years teams…Kelly Gregg, Willis Mcgahee, Derrick Mason, and Todd Heap. Our offense consists of one veteran WR, a new FB, a rookie WR, Ray Rice, two second year tight ends. To say we are the same team as last year shows you don't know a damn thing about the Ravens.

The main guys on your defense are still there and have been there for years.

Every team has changes from year to year.

You seem to have it figured out in regards to the game, so I guess you figured you would post just to let us know how superior your team is. We get it, Baltimore rules, every other team should just pack it in now. Thanks for the profound words of wisdom and prophecy. If you want to mock someone for trying to be "hard" on a message board, it's probably best if you do not turn around and do the exact same thing. Stuff like that truly does make you look like a chump.

Also, your team was not created, it was already established. All they did was move cities and change the name and uniform color.

Just to throw some numbers at this toolbag's head....

The rookie quarterback T.J. Yates has played better than he has been given credit for. His Adjusted Yards Per Attempt (which accounts for sacks and interceptions) is higher than that of his counterpart Joe Flacco this season. Houston’s defense doesn’t get the press that Baltimore’s does, but it’s one of the very best. This season, the Texans have allowed 5.2 Yards per Attempt compared with the Ravens’ 5.4. I expect a much closer game than most other analysts have been predicting. Using Yates’s numbers only, Baltimore has the edge 52/48.

Um, if you're counting just regular season wins, Brady has Flacco by like 4 games. If you're counting post-season starting with the 2008-2009 season, he's tied with Brady.

I think after the watching the previous game a few times this week that there are a lot of reasons for the Texans fans to be optimistic. If you see that most of us cite "Texans reasons" for why we will win and don't talk much about the Ravens it's because we know the Texans better. We know where they are in the course of their season and we know where we were back when we played Baltimore before.

To be honest I think this Texans team wins that game. The changes on defense are important. That was our first game without Mario Williams and it was Brooks Reed's first start. We were still getting the wrinkles worked out on that side of the ball and the defense you play Sunday should be much better than the one you saw then.

The offense is a mixed bag.

QB is less experienced but at the same time he's also more mobile than Schaub.

WR's are better than the first game (AJ is back) but there is the change in QB to consider.

RB's weren't particularly effective then but Foster seems to be gaining steam again. The OL is also getting back on track after missing Brisiel for a few weeks. How the run game goes I think will go a long way toward deciding the game.

How the Texans run and how well they protect the ball are enormous points.

The real problem for us is that this game isn't that game. It's later in the year, it will be colder, louder, more intense, and as much as the Texans have changed I imagine so have the Ravens.

I think they can do it. I know there's a lot of reasons why they might not but I think they can anyway.

Ravens vs. Texans: Baltimore Takes On Houston In First Home Playoff Game Under Coach Harbaugh
Ravens Texans Nfl Playoffs

By BARRY WILNER 01/13/12 11:29 AM ET AP


-- Ray Lewis hugged coach John Harbaugh and barked: "They're coming through Baltimore."

Yes, they are, Ray, at least this weekend.

The divisional round of the NFL playoffs will make a stop at the Inner Harbor on Sunday when the Ravens host the Houston Texans. It's the first home playoff game under Harbaugh, who led the team to a wild-card berth in his previous three seasons.

While the Ravens (12-4) don't have home-field advantage for the entire AFC playoffs unless New England loses Saturday night to Denver, it's a cozy start for Baltimore, which won all eight games at M&T Bank Stadium in 2011.

"If you look at wild-card weekend, I don't think that there was one home team that lost the whole weekend," Lewis said accurately. "When you get into that, it plays a big momentum. It's a big momentum swing for you. It's just hard to win on the road. I don't care who you are, I don't care how good you are, it's hard to win on the road.

"For us to work as hard as we did, get 12 wins, do the things we were supposed to do, and now get this home playoff game, we have positioned ourselves to be in the right place. Now we have to go finish it."

The divisional round begins Saturday with New Orleans (13-4) at San Francisco (13-3). It ends with the New York Giants (10-7) at defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay (15-1).

Houston lost 29-14 at Baltimore in October, when the Texans were healthier than they have been for the last six weeks. But they've dealt with their injuries so well that they won their first division crown and, last week in their postseason debut, beat the Bengals handily.

So if hosting a playoff game is relatively new for the Ravens – they have done it three times, but haven't won one since 2000, the year they took the Super Bowl – being in one is totally new this year for the Texans.

Also new would be a win over the Ravens, who are 5-0 against Houston.

"It's been pretty one-sided so, we've got to get on the board," tackle Eric Winston said. "At the same time, you've got to look back on it and I don't think a lot of that stuff is going to have a lot of bearing on this game either, though. So, there's different guys, there's a different situation and we all know from past experiences that playoffs, funny things happen in the playoffs and games turn out a lot different than they did in the regular season. So hopefully we can hold true to that."link (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/13/ravens-vs-texans-nfl-playoffs-baltimore_n_1204848.html)

I'll choose to go into this game with the mindset that it's easy to stand in front of bulls. But it's dang hard to bring them down.

My first thought is that you just asked a really silly question. Of course we think we are going to win. Just like you think you are going to win. It's b/c this is a Texans message board and this is our team.

My second thought is our defense is better than your defense. Our running game is better than your running game. Our 1 receiver is better than both your receivers combined. Our TE's are better than your TE's. Our offensive line is better than your offensive line.

The wild card is the QB position. If Yates plays up to his abilities and doesn't pull a Schaub and shrink under the lights, this games is ours to win or lose.

I like the Ravens. I think they are a damn good team, just ours is a little bit better.

I can't wait for Sunday, it's going to be a great game.

You may want to go to your third thought. Flacco is easily better than Yates, which is most important. Yates has never experienced an atmosphere or situation like this. Game on.

I would disagree with that. Yates earlier this year went on the road to Cinny in his second NFL start and marched the Texans 80 yards in 2 minutes with no timeouts to win the game and the division in the last two seconds.

And this was against a team that was desperately trying to keep pace with Pit and Balti.

All I hear is every single one of your picking the Texans and not one thing about the Ravens.

How come alot of Texans fans are talking up their defense so much and acting like Flacco doesn't play against good defenses. Just because you have a good defense doesn't mean anything. We have 1 of the best defenses and he practices against them every day not to mention facing the Steelers atleat 2 times a year. Come on, do you really think the Texans will win honestly? Not saying they can't, but every excuse is well Andre Johnson wasn't playing. Guess what, we've beaten the Texans with Andre playing. We were also without our best offensive lineman.

Any thoughts? I think it will be really close.

You didn't beat THIS Texans team with Andre Johnson though. Need I remind you that last year's team had the worst defense in the league.

The Ravens are 5-0 against the Texans. This is the most widely used argument for saying the Ravens have this one wrapped up in the bag. There is a major problem with this argument...

Ravens/Texans matchups
2002 23-19 Ravens (Our inaugural season but you guys won a dogfight)
2005 16-15 Ravens (5th ranked defense against David Carr led 30th offense)
2008 41-13 Ravens (2nd ranked defense; Lost Matt Schaub the previous game; Sage Rosenfels filled in 1 TD 4 INT need I say more?)
2010 34-28 Ravens (10th ranked defense; Down 21 points came back to force OT)
2011 29-14 Ravens

This argument is irrelevant, because neither teams have the same pieces in the previous games. Of the 5 games Schaub only appeared in 2010 and 2011, but only had Johnson for the MNF game last year. If you don't think Andre Johnson will affect the game, you will be in for a rude awakening on Sunday. I know we don't have Schaub, but this team is the best team we've ever had. So while Schaub is better than Yates, Johnson will be the X-factor that allows us to stay in the game until the end (and possibly pull off the upset).

You're right. We are 1-0 all time in the playoffs, with a 100% winning percentage.

I would disagree with that. Yates earlier this year went on the road to Cinny in his second NFL start and marched the Texans 80 yards in 2 minutes with no timeouts to win the game and the division in the last two seconds.

And this was against a team that was desperately trying to keep pace with Pit and Balti.

Its going to be a great game. Can't wait.

I agree. It will be a great game. Never once said Houston sucked or can't win, but I'll def. talk trash with everyone. It's fun and harmless. The Ravens have lost before to worse teams than the Texans and we've gone through heart break losses against the Steelers. Our team has been here before and so has our QB. You can't tell me that means nothing.

You may want to go to your third thought. Flacco is easily better than Yates, which is most important. Yates has never experienced an atmosphere or situation like this. Game on.

Joe Flacco has never experienced the an atmosphere or situation like this (his 1st HOME playoff game). He's used to being on the root and getting booed. The pressure is on the Ravens. Let's look at it like this. The Ravens have more to lose than the Texans. The Ravens cannot afford to lose this game. The Texans can actually face their fans if they lost, because of the adversity we've faced this year and the way we've persevered through it (unlike past seasons).

You didn't beat THIS Texans team with Andre Johnson though. Need I remind you that last year's team had the worst defense in the league.

The Ravens are 5-0 against the Texans. This is the most widely used argument for saying the Ravens have this one wrapped up in the bag. There is a major problem with this argument...

Ravens/Texans matchups
2002 23-19 Ravens (Our inaugural season but you guys won a dogfight)
2005 16-15 Ravens (5th ranked defense against David Carr led 30th offense)
2008 41-13 Ravens (2nd ranked defense; Lost Matt Schaub the previous game; Sage Rosenfels filled in 1 TD 4 INT need I say more?)
2010 34-28 Ravens (10th ranked defense; Down 21 points came back to force OT)
2011 29-14 Ravens

This argument is irrelevant, because neither teams have the same pieces in the previous games. Of the 5 games Schaub only appeared in 2010 and 2011, but only had Johnson for the MNF game last year. If you don't think Andre Johnson will affect the game, you will be in for a rude awakening on Sunday. I know we don't have Schaub, but this team is the best team we've ever had. So while Schaub is better than Yates, Johnson will be the X-factor that allows us to stay in the game until the end (and possibly pull off the upset).

Why does everyone say "this" team. We've beaten the Texans with Andre before, I don't understand. He's one of the top WRs in the game, we know that. All it takes is pressure on Yates and Andre is nonexistent.

cbs1507
01-13-2012, 04:54 PM
This just in. Flacco has more wins than any QB in NFL history in the first 4 years. How can you say Flacco sucks? You need to direct those comments at Matt Schaub. How many playoff wins does he have. Goose egg.

Yeah I'm sure it was Flacco who won all those games. :gun:


Joe Flacco's career playoffs record 4-3. I'm sure it was him not your defense that led yal to this record.

2008
@ Mia 9 for 23, 135 yards, 0 TD 0 INT Win
@ Ten 11 for 22, 161 yards, 1 TD 0 INT Win
@ Pit 13 for 30, 141 yards, 0 TD 3 INT Loss

2009
@ NE 4 for 10, 34 yards, 0 TD 1 INT Win (Who gets 34 passing yards in a win against NE of all teams).
@ IND 20 for 35, 189 yards, 0 TD 2 INT Loss

Because THIS team has a top rated defense. The team you beat Andre Johnson had the worst defense in the NFL. There's a BIG difference. ;)

And no one has taken that away from you. I agree, the Ravens have more on the line than the Texans but that doesn't take away the Ravens chances of winning. Our secondary and pass rush is better. That's a deadly combo. Ray rice getting consistent carries will open up the passing game. Obviously, anyone can win on any given day but I think it has to be in Baltimore's corner.

You act like Texans fans have been everywhere all along. It's called bandwagon. This is your first time in the playoffs. Ravens fans are everywhere but who cares? Flacco has played against the best D in the NFL 4 straight years and faced them in the AFC championship game. No one is overlooking the game on Sunday, but they're definitely not afraid. The Ravens will show the Texans the meaning of a physical game. The Ravens have come a long way since week 6 (sarcasm bc that's all any Texans fans say. "The Texans are a much better team since week 6" So is everyone else in the NFL!!)

The Bills definitely aren't... Nor the Browns, Bucs, Raiders, Chargers, Redskins, etc etc...

The Ravens have been pretty consistent throughout this season though, going 3-1 in each quarter. No big losing streaks or anything. The losses came at the hands of a sputtering offense though, and if they can't get Ray Ray going against the Texans then Houston will have a good shot of winning.

I think the reason people say the Texans have gotten much better after week 6 is that they went on a 7 game winning streak after that. That got us to 10-3, locked up the division and we coasted the last three games. Then they came out against the Bengals and destroyed them. That's the team I expect to show up on Sunday, the one that plays lights out and never lets up.

We lost the Colts? No really? Seriously if that what helps you sleep at night then go ahead and keep repeating. But this is beginning to sound like a broken record. Yeah we lost to the Colts but we never scored 7 points in a game ALL SEASON. You see it goes both ways.

BTW
You guys were average 29 PPG going into our matchup in week5, but you guys ended the season scoring 23 PPG. We went from 27 PPG and ended the season 24 PPG.What happened? We lost our starting QB and his backup (and played most of the season without Andre Johnson). You guys still have Flacco. ;)

Game.

The Ravens' playoff record is 4-3 with Flacco under center.
Not bad. Until you look at Flacco's stats.
98 of 184 for 905 yds; 4TDs and 7 INTs. On average that's 14 of 26+ for 129.3 for just over half a TD/gm and exactly 1 INT/gm. And the one good game he had that inflates his stats was last year against a Chiefs team that had no business in the playoffs.

All that to point out that Flacco has seven playoff appearances on his resume' and doesn't seem to be appreciably better than Yates.
Seems like they won in spite of Flacco, not because of him.

No wonder you're worried.

Wow your post made me see the light, I mean there is no chance BALT slips in a bad game (BAL 7 @ JAC 12 - BAL 13 @ TEN 26 - BAL 17 @ SEA 22). The Texans dont match up at all with BALT (both top 5 DEF - both top 10 Run Off HOU #2 BALT #10) BALT is at home so I guess HOU should just stay home and get an early start on the offseason because no teams ever lose at home right. I say lets play the game and see what happens we will support our team and you support yours.

We also played 5 games against top 5 defenses (5-0), 11 games in total against top 10 Defenses (9-2) Regular season so far.

Texans played 6 top 10 Defenses (5-1), 1 top 5 Defense which happens to be the Ravens. (0-1)

Strength of Victory ratings Ravens .484 - Houston .413

Stats are stats and we can all pull stats to support our claim. In the end our 2 teams are going to play Sunday. The best team on that day, at that time will be the winner.

We lost some pressure in week 10, along with our starting QB. A little more pressure was alleviated the following game, when we lost his backup. The pressure tempered even more when we lost 3 games backing into our first ever playoff game. The pressure was completely obliterated, when we beat the Bengals last week. You guys still have pressure. You are 4-3 over the past 4 years, and nothing to show for it but...4-3. The Ravens haven't had a home game is several years. They are 0-2 in the playoffs when winning their division. They better win. Of course if this thought creeps into their psyche it could spell disaster for Baltimore.

then comes with the "Do you honestly believe..."

then with that a little crawdad action of ...."I think it will be close"


with that said.
I think it will be close.. it depends on which defense can shut down the run(Andre will help keep the safeties somewhat honest) .. I think Flacco can make more plays than Yates (due to experience) .. however I do think Kubiak can help Yates but he still is a rookie..

well atleast,for me, I don't hate the ravens, except this weekend .. however some of the Texan fans favorites were two piss-knockers .. Pollard and Leach.

Running backs don't move the ball on us. So if you don't rely on Yates, you must rely on Foster/Tate. I'll take any D we've had since 2000 against them. All the Ravens D does well consistently is stop the run.

Also, you aren't the Texans who lost Matt Schaub and his backup. Our world is still in rotation. ;)

exactly.. I am not very confident in this game.. and mainly because these teams are so evenly matched and playing on the road.

this was a nice version of smack talk in the OP

I mean come on.. you ask a question of why we think Flacco sucks ..being he practices with a very good defense..and you play the steelers twice .......

then comes with the "Do you honestly believe..."

then with that a little crawdad action of ...."I think it will be close"


with that said.
I think it will be close.. it depends on which defense can shut down the run(Andre will help keep the safeties somewhat honest) .. I think Flacco can make more plays than Yates (due to experience) .. however I do think Kubiak can help Yates but he still is a rookie..

well atleast,for me, I don't hate the ravens, except this weekend .. however some of the Texan fans favorites were two piss-knockers .. Pollard and Leach.

It was fun getting everything stirred up. And yeah, I did end it with I think it will be close because I can stop drinking the purple kool aid for a second. Trashing talking before the game is one of the funnest things a sports fan can do IMO.

Running backs don't move the ball on us. So if you don't rely on Yates, you must rely on Foster/Tate. I'll take any D we've had since 2000 against them. All the Ravens D does well consistently is stop the run.

Your avatar is nice too. Such high hopes for a team that's never even sniffed the Super Bowl. What will you change it to next, Houston Rockets World Champion?

RBs don't move the ball on us very well either. It goes both ways. We've been solid against the run for the past 3 or 4 season.

BTW Does Baltimore even have an NBA team? Thought so. Nice try on the Rockets comment. Go Wizards?

That's what happens when people don't care about the Bay. Since you aren't here anymore, there's a project going on to clean it up but thinks for informing me. I don't live anywhere near the city, so you talking bad about it doesn't matter. Still a nice place to go. Back to football.

You've won ONE playoff game haha. Doesn't that kill you? Your team has consistently choked. What makes you think they won't this year. Always high expectations with no results. Sure, the Ravens have a lot of pressure to win but so do the Texans. If they lose, just another crappy end to the season followed by more and more excuses. It's nice to have a team where the owners and GMs care and know how to consistently put a winning football team on the field. It must suck to be let down year after year and now barely making the playoffs.

When you write a letter, do you know how to find out who wrote it to you? You probably think you do, but I have evidence that says otherwise. My original post to you:

Dear Baltimore,

I used to live in your city, but I couldn't survive there.


Signed,

A profitable economy, jobs, "a good place to raise a family," and education.

As you can tell by the quoted language above, I attempted to use a form of literature called 'Anthropomorphism.' This term means that you give human characteristics to a non-living thing (in this case, four things: A profitable economy, jobs, 'a good place to raise a family' and education") in order to create a humorous situation.

JUST TO HELP YOU OUT...I (the user "House of Pain") did not write this letter to the city of Baltimore. I actually pretended that negative characteristics about your city wrote a letter to Baltimore.

You must not watch Raven's games. How do you think they move they ball? Ray Rice accounts for 38% of your teams offense. Most in the NFL. From the our last meeting alone, I can tell you that Flacco does not make those big plays if he does not have the threat of Ray Rice.

BTW Does Baltimore even have an NBA team? Thought so. Nice try on the Rockets comment.

Haha I was waiting for the NBA comment back. Another team getting ripped away from us, but luckily, the Wizards (still bullets in my mind) are only 45 mins away. Yes, they suck, I know.

All I hear is every single one of your picking the Texans and not one thing about the Ravens.

How come alot of Texans fans are talking up their defense so much and acting like Flacco doesn't play against good defenses. Just because you have a good defense doesn't mean anything. We have 1 of the best defenses and he practices against them every day not to mention facing the Steelers atleat 2 times a year. Come on, do you really think the Texans will win honestly? Not saying they can't, but every excuse is well Andre Johnson wasn't playing. Guess what, we've beaten the Texans with Andre playing. We were also without our best offensive lineman.

Any thoughts? I think it will be really close.

The Colts left town in the middle of the night because Bob Irsay was a drunk? Don't think for a second that our players won't do whatever it takes to shove that in Indianapolis' face by bringing home the Lombardi in the town that took our team. Nice try though.

Hey, I've got news for you. None of the current Ravens were Colts fans circa 1984. Its not personal for them like it is you. Sure they would love to win in Indy but if you have a single player who gets more amped up because it is in Indy then you should kick them off of the team. Just saying.

I agree! I keep saying the same thing. I'm sure most of us could pull stats, twist and turn them attempting to prove our point.

If you read the Ravens Board, it's no different compared to this one. Most are confident in a win, some are unrealistically over-confident. What's left (the realistic ones) believe this is going to be a tough game and we expect a win, but in no way do we think we're just walk over the Texans.

This just in. Flacco has more wins than any QB in NFL history in the first 4 years. How can you say Flacco sucks? You need to direct those comments at Matt Schaub. How many playoff wins does he have. Goose egg.

Where do you get this stuff?

In their first four years:

From 2008 to 2011 Flacco went:
11-5 (2-1)
9-7 (1-1)
12-4 (1-1)
12-4 (0-0)
-----
44-20 (4-3)

From 2004-2008 Ben Roethlisberger went:

15-1 (1-1)
11-5 (4-0)
8-8 (0-0)
10-6 (0-1)
----
44-20 (5-2) with a ring.

Unless y'all win the Super Bowl Flacco won't even have the most wins in his first four years among QB's in his division -- much less in history

Unless y'all win the Super Bowl Flacco won't even have the most wins in his first four years among QB's in his division -- much less in history

See, this is what happens when you just go to nfl.com and look at general statistics and try to make it sound like you know what actually happened. Ben came in after a few games have been played in 2004 when Maddox was injured. Thanks for copying and pasting that though.

Tell you what, let's have a bet.

Texans win: you post a picture doing the TD bow, a la Arian Foster...

Ravens win: we'll post a murder mugshot of one of us, a la Ray Lewis...

Deal? :truck:

Absolutely. But Ray Lewis wasn't convicted or tried for murder, so the "murder mugshot" wouldn't make sense. However, you can pose like Ray Lewis when holding the Super Bowl trophy.

"I have a life...when I get back from the bars"

Haha, bars are fun and all but saying you "have a life" because you go to bars comes across as just sad.

Compared to other teams fans you are not that bad, I enjoy going to other teams message boards when I have time to get their perspective as well. However it was a terrible way to start the thread, can't wait for our team to prove you wrong because they will.
Go Texans!

Agreed. Maybe should have said "not going to be on this thread on a friday night." Who are your picks today?

Typically women or little ***** ass dudes ask rhetorical questions...

Bout time we got something going on in the smack forum though! Even if it's from a delusional bird watcher.

I'm not sure what the shot at women was for, but why can't it be asked? There's 13 pages so obviously enough people felt they needed to comment on such a rhetorical question. Every fan thinks their team will win. My question is, fanhood aside, do Texans fans reallyyyyy think they can come in to Baltimore and beat us like every Texan fan is saying? Even the injured Steelers are better than the Texans and have 1 of the best defenses too. How did we do against them this year?
