With an over/under of 46.5 total points......so a low scoring game is not expected.

JJ should have a feast with the 40 sack Colts.

Foster has a chance to duplicate his last Colts performance.

Despite the fact that Luck has broken the rookie passing record, he has not completed more then 48.6% of his passes in his last four games.

Avg Points: Houston 26.7 Colts 21.9
Avg Points Allowed Houston 20.2 Colts 24.7

All things being said, if we play like last week, all that a 7 spot assures us a is poor showing and a likely loss.

People are expecting Indy to pull their starters early, probably having them out shortly after the beginning of the second half if not sooner. And if Luck is under any real pressure, they yank him immediately. If not for the expectation of Indy's starting departing early, I suspect the game would be a "pick'em".

Weird math y'all are using, and not that it matters, but the Texans are 0-10 in Indy, not 0-11. At least not yet.

And those numbers mean nothing Sunday. The Texans had never beaten the Jets and Ravens until this season. Never won in Detroit. That stuff has nothing to do with anything about the game to be played.

Do you recall the game at all??

You talk like we got blown away.
They won by THREE.
Remember those two BS calls the zebras made on JJ Watt and that bogus pass interference call on that same drive. The D made plays to get off the field and the zebras kept giving the Colts additional chances.

So don't talk like we got blown out and embarrassed. The Zebras gave the Colts that game.

Forget about the W-L..... the Colts, like the Texans have had a relatively week schedule.

Watch how they play. The Colts is one of the most mistake prone teams in the league.

Even if the starters play, they will help us beat them. That's who they are. They did it last time, when we played poorly, & they'll do it again, even if we play poorly.

Because even when we play poorly, we are not giving the ball away. They are.

Texans fan hoping Colts won't play whole game without their starters will be disappointed and should be worried of how Indy will treat this game.
This will be their biggest game of the year. They playing for their return cancer-battled coach and they playing for momentum to take to the playoffs. That is a BIG factor. We will face the best Colts this season and the only way we beat them is if we play our most complete game of the season.

It's been so long since that happen that my vision of the next Texans win coming in that fashion probably won't happen till next season.

I expect Texans to lose this game. I just hope our consolation prize is JJ Watt gets the sack record.

12-29-2012, 05:56 PM
If Texans don't win TO battle.
If Texans have 6 or more penalties
If Texans also lose special teams.
If Kubiak is predictable in his call playing as usual
and the Colts play starters all game and maybe even if they don't
I think Texans lose

I think Matt will feel the pressure and force the ball and we will lose TO battle.

I think Kubiak will be predictable in play calling and the Colts will pressure Matt on 3rd down and Matt will make mistakes. Matt is a huge liability when it comes to being able to create. He has really gotten worse as the season has progressed. I hoped at the beginning of he season he would get more mobile not less. i think there is a good chance once the season is over we hear that Matt has been injured and tried to play through it.

I think there is just too huge a difference between MS and Luck in being able to create when the play does not work perfectly.

Colts will be able to shut down running game even with all our pro bowlers and then tee off on Matt. Colts just need to shut down AJ and know they won't get hurt by other WR.

Shut down Watt on D and they will move the ball and score. It may not take much offense by the Colts to win this game because I don't see Texans scoring much unless the D has multiple take aways.

I know negative outlook but the memory of last weeks game has not faded yet.

Just my opinion. Hope I am wrong.

Stack the line and make Matt beat them only GK is determined to run.
Double team Watt.
Matt feels pressure tries to force it and throws one or two interceptions and loses the ball when Colts rush him.
Maybe I should have also added Gary's tendency to keep the other team in the game with his playcalling.

Again, what makes you think the Colts can stop the run? even if they put 10 men on the line. They couldn't "decipher" Gary's grand plan last time. They doubled & tripled Watt..... he got 3 sacks.. he had one of the most dominant games of any Defensive Lineman at any time in history.

I think we are going to dominate the Colts tomorrow. I know how we've played over the past month and a half and it hasnt been pretty. We all know that. I am not scared of Andrea (that was a typo but I think Ill keep it that way) Luck and the colts by any means. I think we(The Texans) have taken a beating from every angle...opposing offenses, opposing defenses, the media...hell...even the this damn message board. I think we come out hard and whip the **** out of the Colts to give not only the team some confidence, but the fans as we roll into the playoffs.

MY Predictions:

- JJ Watt breaks OR ties sack record
- Foster runs for 150 and a touch
- we hold their offense to 1 touchdown and a couple of FG's
- we cover the spread
- we win by 3 scores


Not sure why I am so confident but I think we will finally have something good to talk about and look forward to Sunday afternoon after the game.

Completely agree with you. I think the colts are what most refer to as "paper champs". Plus the media just loves Andrew Luck. I think they are a team of opportunity and I will bet a crisp $20 bill that they get worked over in the first round exposing that they are out of their league.

Lopsided loss has contributed to those stats. But all good football teams win close games. The Colts have done that.
They didn't win 9 games this season by accident. No one was impressed by the Vikings season stats last week also.

I'm not saying they're better than the Texans. They clearly over match in personnel. But if you think Houston can win this game by playing good on only one aspect of the game you sadly mistaken. I don't think you realize the buzzsaw this game could be if Texans don't bring their A game to the field.

The Texans proved you right today, but the Colts had more "miraculous" wins than we did.

If anything, those wins are a plus in our column. They show grit & the ability to win tough games. I understand the argument that those teams are bad & the games shouldn't have been close to begin with. But the fact remains, that there were issues that prevented us from playing our best football. We should have adjusted for those issues by now, we haven't. But that's a different story.

The D winning games.... again, that should be a plus for us. The problem now, is that our O can't be counted on & our defense isn't enough anymore.

LOL. Manning is superior to no one in the nfl at the mobility level. He's in the same club as Brady, Marino, Warner and Schaub in regards to mobility. If those guys go out and compete in an obstacle course with cones and hurdle their will be no clear winner. The difference is great QB like those are more fundamentally sound with their footwork and doesn't panicks when the pocket collapsed. They know when and where to slide their feet over or step up to get to a safer place to throw the ball.

You put Manning or any QB with pocket-savy and sound footwork behind our line I guaranteed you they will still perform at a high-level. No one will notice that Newton got whipped on the edge because someone like Brady would've step up from the pocket allowing the pass rush to run by. No one will notice Ben Jones got beat by a swim move because someone like Marino would've avoided the oncoming rush by simply sliding over to an area that would allow Jones to catchup to block the rusher.

Good QBs knows how to use a defender momentum against them. Good QB knows where to move in the pocket to give their blockers a better blocking angles. Schaub simply doesn't have the pocket-instinct and awareness to deal with pressure.

Peyton was able to get the tackle on the Flowers interception. Not an example of pocket maneuverability but definitely an example of mobility.

I was going to start a thread about this but I will just post in this one instead because I am a firm believer about NOT starting crap threads about my opinions or gut feelings...BUT...

I think we are going to dominate the Colts tomorrow. I know how we've played over the past month and a half and it hasnt been pretty. We all know that. I am not scared of Andrea (that was a typo but I think Ill keep it that way) Luck and the colts by any means. I think we(The Texans) have taken a beating from every angle...opposing offenses, opposing defenses, the media...hell...even the this damn message board. I think we come out hard and whip the **** out of the Colts to give not only the team some confidence, but the fans as we roll into the playoffs.

MY Predictions:

- JJ Watt breaks OR ties sack record
- Foster runs for 150 and a touch
- we hold their offense to 1 touchdown and a couple of FG's
- we cover the spread
- we win by 3 scores


Not sure why I am so confident but I think we will finally have something good to talk about and look forward to Sunday afternoon after the game.

...who the hell am I kidding? This is TexansTalk.com. Someone will find something to complain about...

Go Texans.

:fans:

Ha Ha!

All you younger guys were predicting the win over the Colts due to your raw emotions.

I got news for you all: After this season, you'll learn that nothing is done until it's done. And even then, Goodell might find a way to UN-do it.

I was wild-eyed and high on life, too, but guys like Hervoyel and Lucky and Thorn and many more, ahem "seasoned" veterans, intervened into my message board life a few seasons ago...back during the final year of David Carr.

Through multiple sessions of therapy, they helped me overcome Houston Pro Football Over-Excitement Syndrome.

You still HOPE, don't get me wrong, but you have a reserve of rational thought left in your mind...a protective cocoon of sanity that reminds you that you, yes YOU!, are rooting for a Houston pro football team. And then instinct kicks in.
