Pass D looking rough, I'm guessing the safeties are playing deep because of last week giving of long plays plus JJo is out.

What an awful quarter of football. 2nd and 27 and we give up a big play.

Deja vu......Texans of old.

OK. Now time to get a first down.

One of their guys took his helmet off on the field. He was close to the sideline, but a rule is a rule.

Finally a big offensive play from our guys.

Schaub's arm is looking weak today for some reason.

I actually AM shocked Simms went against the QB there.

I wish Schaub had a stronger arm. Every deep throw our guy has to slow down or come back for the ball.

SmoochyTX
11-22-2012, 01:30 PM
Yes! Stretching the field to AJ!

Schaub's arm is looking weak today for some reason.

Maybe because he threw for an ungodly amount of yards just 4 days ago?

Was Delmas celebrating after an 8 yard gain?

can we change Schaub's arm strength like you to on Madden from a 75 to a 90? Just asking!

TheMatrix31
11-22-2012, 01:31 PM
If we had just done a play action pass on the first play of our freakin' offensive day, maybe we wouldn't have suffered through a ****ty quarter.

Love that play call

Brisco_County
11-22-2012, 01:33 PM
From where he grabbed, he evidently has suffered an adductor muscle tear. As much acute pain that he demonstrated, it will not be a minor 1st degree tear. It is either a 2nd degree tear or 3rd degree complete rupture. I would be surprised if this is not at least a 4+ week recovery. In one study, as high as 40 % of players with this more severe degree of injury have not been able to see the field by the 20th week. We will know more after an MRI.

Thanks, Doc.

For those who wanted to see more of Mercilus, you got your wish.

That run right there points out exactly what makes Foster so damned good. That's what Urlacher and all others say after games with Houston.

They said it at least twice that I've heard. Maybe they should just say "looking down field to throw to Johnson". They'd be right on both sides.

Thanks. Hope it's nothing too serious.

I went to do some more looking because I was curious if there was any more info and the official Houston Texans twitter feed sent this out about 25 minutes ago - "OLB Brooks Reed has a groin injury and his return is questionable."

Ball is the only CB that is close to the same hemisphere as CJ in size only 6-4 to 6-2. Speed isn't gonna matter cause CJ can run by any of our CBs. I guess with the cushion, Wade doesn't want CJ to take advantage of our CBs on making a play for the ball. However this is Megatron we're talking about and Ball will need help!!!

Has been all game. No one knows except Wade

Only thing i can think of is Ball is our biggest corner at 6-2. Not a good reason but one i could see them going with since Calvin is 6-5

So if we had a 6'8" CB who was on the PS he should be covering CJ? Put your best guys on their best guy and let them make a play. Ball is 4th CB for a reason

It's pretty annoying to see from a team that has to win out just to make the playoffs. They are 4-6, after every play one of them is dancing.

Any ways...Wade needs to just put Kareem on Calvin.

STafford got lucky on that last TD play, any decent CB at least knocks that down or better yet INTs it.

Ball gets help on any In-breaking route (seam, skinny post, post, and deep dig, that sort of routes.

The side-line routes were for him to cover; and like others have said; he wasn't bad there.

Ball has done fine. He needs safety help, which he didn't get at all in the first half. Ball made a great play on that last TD, and if Manning would have given him help over the top then that play likely would have been broken up.

Glad to see Kubiak chewing on the refs undoubtedly about Suh. That was a blatantly intentional kick and I bet it gets a fine but that is too late. That should have been 15 yards and a 1st down. So should the other Suh bend Schaub into a pretzel long after the ball is gone play. Those 1st downs and yards make a difference.

I don't know if Ball stole your bike when you were a kid and that's why you're hating on him but Ball has been in position.

The CBS halftime crew...Sharpe and Boomer...literally SHREDDED Suh for his kick to Schaub's nuts.

Yeah, and no biggie, but Nance ans Simms never made the connection when they showed Kubes raising hell. I was going to point that out, but Houston got so torched seconds later I just blanked the post out.

That probably wouldn't be a bad idea, but we should at least have safeties shading a lot more towards that match-up. I mean, its pretty clear that they will go to CJ every single time he gets one on one coverage.
