Re: October 20th 3:25 PM Texans @ Chiefs Prediction Thread
Call me crazy (my wife and kids do it daily so it's probably accurate) but I think we win this one. Why? Well duh...because I'm crazy.
Though in truth it's because I'm hoping our coaches play to our strength which is a weakness to the Chiefs defense. Run the freaking ball. This is the best chance to beat the Chiefs since Alex Smith is not going to beat you. Run the ball, get a couple of scores, and you should have control of the game. If you try to go pass happy with the way our line is handling pass protection the Chiefs pass rush will have another sack happy game.
Schaub is hurt so I doubt he plays. Yates has tunnel vision and will not go through progressions even now it seems. Hopefully practice helps but it was one of the things I didn't like about him in the past and he did it again Sunday. If they go with Keenum I have no idea what to expect because he's the most unknown for field experience in the pros. But in the end we need to run it.
Granted at the same time we've been crappy against the run ourselves. But let's face it, the two teams we had some run issues on are the 49ers and Rams. Both have QB's who can stretch the field with their arm. Smith can't. Stack the box and focus on Charles instead of QB blitz, QB blitz, QB blitz! Smith should not dissect our secondary. If he does then we have even more issues.
Oh and don't get beat on special teams but for some reason I feel that is already going to happen thanks to Marciano and crew *sighs*
