Default Respect from the Jags??

Thought I'd drop in on their forum, since ours has been quiet since about 2:45 pm yesterday.

I was surprised to see this thread: They are who we thought they were

Did anyone really think the stinking tacks would hang with the Texans? They were who they thought they were. Even without Andre to lay a swift and decisive beat-down on "finnewhimp" it was a complete annihilation.

I'm sure some of the tack trolls will come along to whine and cry about how their team got screwed some way or another, but the simple truth is that the stinking tacks just can't beat anyone of substance.

They were who we knew they were.

Yes, The Texans are a good team and always play the Jags tuff. It's a good rivalry This game is big for both teams...if the Jags win, they are back into the hunt for the division. If the Texans win, makes the division that much easier.

Great win for you guys against the Ravens.

I expect this to be a tough, hard-fought game. Your defense was rocking against the Ravens. Hopefully, our receivers will get more separation than those Ravens receivers did and our line will open bigger seams. I think that's what the entire game is going to come down to: can your D stop our O.

Exactly. We'll see what happens Sunday. You guys will be rocking w/the Battle Red. Should be a fun game to watch.

Man, I was seriously impressed by your team's D last night. I'm not gonna lie, I thought you guys were going to get destroyed. I'm not saying that the Raven have an explosive O, but they are a decent offensive team. Ray Rice is no slouch, and you guys SHUT. HIM. DOWN.

Hopefully we'll be able to run better than the Raven did, because that really is our bread & butter. It's going to be nice having Andre & Casey both back this week and that should also not allow you guys to stack the box against us.

Glad you guys won, that was a tough fought game. My only concern with a game like that was how much did it take out of your team? That appeared to be a battle and having played on Monday night, it kind of gives your team a short week to heal up and go again. (I'm not complaining, lol!)

Here's to a healthy game for both teams and a WIN for the Texans....

Well, I think the Jags Defense will be OK/set Sunday...they have been great all season. They have only allowed 7 points in 6 quarters vs Steelers and Ravens! I think, the game will rest on the horrible Jags Offense, which will play into the Texans Defense hands. It's gonna be a much better game than that blow out vs Titans, last week. Which is always awesome, to blow out those Titans!

It speaks (imo) to that softness, that mental softness, that ability to finish games.

I hope for another statement game.
I think it says that the Ravens are a different team at home than they are on the road. They've beaten some good teams at their place (Pit & NYJ) while losing to teams they should have beaten handily on the road (Jac & Ten).

This game will likely come down to how Houston runs the ball. If Jacksonville can stop the run the way they did against Baltimore than they have a good shot for an upset. I think it will be a lot more difficult doing it on the road for them, though, and can see Foster having a good day running the ball.

Default Re: Respect from the Jags??

If the Jags can't stop Foster...Texans roll big time. I think you'll see a Jags Defense that is built to stuff the run and pass...maybe the best LB core in the NFL Sessions, Poz, D. Smith.

here's the latest stats on the Defense:

RUN DEFENSE - they are ranked # 10 allowing 103.4 yards per game
PASS DEFENSE - ranked # 6 allowing 196.3 yards per game

Sacks - 19th in the league with 14 sacks

Pretty good backs they are shutting down:

Week 1 - Chris Johnson 24 yards
Week 2 - Shonn Greene 49 yards
Week 3 - Jonathon Stewart 59 yards
Week 4 - Sproles 75, Ingram 55 yards
Week 5 - Cedric Benson 53 yards
Week 6 - Mendenhall 146 yards (108 in the first 20 mins)
Week 7 - Ray Rice 28 yards
