View Full Version : An honest assessment from a diehard Ravens fan

The two glaring reasons the Texans lost were Jacoby and Yates. And in my eyes, Yates gets a pass. He never played with a lead, he was under a lot of mental pressure playing in his first road playoff game, and he was playing against a good defense (although at times it did not look like it) at their house.

Had Schaub been healthy, I think the Texans would have won by 10.

No matter. Foster is a beast, as is AJ. Your defense is about as tough as they come. All-in-all, Houston stood tall today. I know losing sucks (I've been there three years straight and may be there again next Sunday), but for the Texans first-ever post-season, they made the rest of the NFL stand up and take notice.

:bravo:

I think the Texans played better than the Ravens today but 4 turnovers is impossible to overcome. Good luck next week against the Pats and I hope Ed Reed is able to play.

Close to a perfect assessment of the game. We were the much better defense today, if B-more fans can't admit it they're just as drunk as we are. With Schaub under center and no pressure we easily make big drives. Schaub is clutch without pressure (as are most qb's) and would have won by 11-13.

Bottom line, we lost. We gave up the ball 4 times and lost. The L is the only stat that matters.

I think the Ravens D should get some major props though. They held onto a 4 point lead for like...what more than half the game? Applause for that. Of course with Matt it would have been different but next year I guess. Just hope we don't run into Haynesworth who always falls on the guy and hurts him somehow.

I have watched Reed since The U. Although he may have lost a step this season, and his tackling wasn't up to par due to his neck injury, he has a nose for the ball. He is a sure-fire first ballot lock for Canton. I hope he can come back healthy for next week more for his sake. I know he wants a ring, and although even winning next week is no guarantee, you certainly won't get one if you never make it to the SB.

I think the Texans had a performance in the playoffs (vs Cincinnati & at Baltimore) that leaves me feeling like we'll be back in the near future so I'm not anywhere near as upset by this game as I might have been. When you get down to your third QB you're obviously going to suffer. That he was a rookie just made things worse.

We'll be back next year. I'm sure of it.

I can understand that right now. Trust me we aren't here to annoy and rub it in.

I think many Ravens fans actually LIKE the Texans as a team and after this game we'll like them a lot more. They are built the same as us. Play great Defense, run the ball, pass when required but lay it all on the line.

I personally will be cheering for the Texans, when they aren't playing the Ravens of course.

In my book your whole Defense "Played like a Raven" today.

I can't even fault TJ as a rookie for most of his INT's. Webb has shown this year he is one of the best cover corners in the league, and Ed Reed is...well Ed Reed. He got baited into some bad throws. Experience will eliminate some of those, not all because even the Top QB's get baited into bad throws.

That's cool. I am disappointed that the Texans lost, too. But that does not mean it is OK for us to take that out on other posters, especially visitors that are behaving in a gracious manner.

Thank you for doing the right thing here.

I agree. The only thing that really sucks is our season is over. I really enjoyed watching our defense play ball. Watt, Barwin, Reed, Cushing.

Now there is an emptiness inside.

Yes, I gave you negative rep for that post. I chose to express my dislike for it that way instead of replying in here and talking to you like you were an angry baby (because I've "posted while pissed" myself). I personally don't value the rep system very much so if that made you feel bad then I'm sorry. I thought it was preferable to talking to you about it in the thread. Guess not.

This team isn't going anywhere. The good thing is that we have one hole to fill this offseason. Other than that we are building depth and adding to our strengths. A lot of poise was shown by the entire team today. (Sans the guy who tried to field that punt)...

I feel better about this team than I have about any team at any point in Houston football history. Anyone remember when we lost to the Sonics in 93? The feeling you had going away from that series, like we have a shot to do some great things... That is what I walk away from this year. We have so many young players on both sides of the ball... The teens will be our decade, mark my words.

It just goes to show two things .

1. You have to play clean in the playoffs especially on the road .

2. The Texans' with a rookie QB were almost good enough to overcome a killer mistake and several others .

The good news is we are in the tweeking mode and not in the building mode .

Ugh the only downside is that all Houston sports fans have to look forward to is the Rockets getting yet another 14 pick (or sneaking into the 8th spot) and the Astros stinking it up.....looong time till football season again

I don't watch basketball anymore. I quit after the officiating got to be the worst of all of the pro sports. I got tired of shelling out money for tickets and watching zebras make "amazing" calls night after night. I was a huge baseball fan growing up but us moving to the AL has kind of taken that passion out of me. I'm looking forward to the Dynamo though!

Some people need an honest assessment of their lives if their team losing a football game affects them to the point of being rude and generally not a nice person. Pssst.

Ravens fans here were good sports all week, and class acts coming back here and posting here after their win today.

There seems to be a bit of a unique camaraderie between us. Ray Lewis says he thinks he admires the Texans and feels a kinship to how we play. I'd like Michael Lombardi to take notice of that, and mention it in a future discussion about the softness of this Texans organization. But he won't.
