Just to throw some numbers at this toolbag's head....

Quote:
The rookie quarterback T.J. Yates has played better than he has been given credit for. His Adjusted Yards Per Attempt (which accounts for sacks and interceptions) is higher than that of his counterpart Joe Flacco this season. Houston’s defense doesn’t get the press that Baltimore’s does, but it’s one of the very best. This season, the Texans have allowed 5.2 Yards per Attempt compared with the Ravens’ 5.4. I expect a much closer game than most other analysts have been predicting. Using Yates’s numbers only, Baltimore has the edge 52/48.

I was just in that town of yours in August...maybe it was a shot to call it a cattle town. I think the term Texico is the best way to put it. Great town none the less, can't wait to come down next year in my Ravens Super Bowl T-Shirt for our game.

The Colts left town in the middle of the night because Bob Irsay was a drunk? Don't think for a second that our players won't do whatever it takes to shove that in Indianapolis' face by bringing home the Lombardi in the town that took our team. Nice try though.

They left to move to Indianapolis no less. They figured that was an upgrade.

Um, if you're counting just regular season wins, Brady has Flacco by like 4 games. If you're counting post-season starting with the 2008-2009 season, he's tied with Brady.

Default Re: Do Texans fans honestly think they're going to win?

I think after the watching the previous game a few times this week that there are a lot of reasons for the Texans fans to be optimistic. If you see that most of us cite "Texans reasons" for why we will win and don't talk much about the Ravens it's because we know the Texans better. We know where they are in the course of their season and we know where we were back when we played Baltimore before.

To be honest I think this Texans team wins that game. The changes on defense are important. That was our first game without Mario Williams and it was Brooks Reed's first start. We were still getting the wrinkles worked out on that side of the ball and the defense you play Sunday should be much better than the one you saw then.

The offense is a mixed bag.

QB is less experienced but at the same time he's also more mobile than Schaub.

WR's are better than the first game (AJ is back) but there is the change in QB to consider.

RB's weren't particularly effective then but Foster seems to be gaining steam again. The OL is also getting back on track after missing Brisiel for a few weeks. How the run game goes I think will go a long way toward deciding the game.

How the Texans run and how well they protect the ball are enormous points.

The real problem for us is that this game isn't that game. It's later in the year, it will be colder, louder, more intense, and as much as the Texans have changed I imagine so have the Ravens.

I think they can do it. I know there's a lot of reasons why they might not but I think they can anyway.

I believe James Casey was out during that game as well. They do a few different things with him in there.

Perhaps it was because he was getting lonesome:

At the 2010 Census, there were 620,961 people residing in Baltimore, a decrease of −4.6% since 2000. According to the 2010 Census, 29.6% of the population was White, 63.7% Black , 0.4% American Indian and Alaska Native, 2.3% Asian, 0.2% from some other race (non-Hispanic) and 2.1% of two or more races. 4.2% of Baltimore's population was of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin ... Baltimore's population has continued to decline since 1950.

Ravens vs. Texans: Baltimore Takes On Houston In First Home Playoff Game Under Coach Harbaugh
Ravens Texans Nfl Playoffs
Quote:
By BARRY WILNER 01/13/12 11:29 AM ET AP


-- Ray Lewis hugged coach John Harbaugh and barked: "They're coming through Baltimore."

Yes, they are, Ray, at least this weekend.

The divisional round of the NFL playoffs will make a stop at the Inner Harbor on Sunday when the Ravens host the Houston Texans. It's the first home playoff game under Harbaugh, who led the team to a wild-card berth in his previous three seasons.

While the Ravens (12-4) don't have home-field advantage for the entire AFC playoffs unless New England loses Saturday night to Denver, it's a cozy start for Baltimore, which won all eight games at M&T Bank Stadium in 2011.

"If you look at wild-card weekend, I don't think that there was one home team that lost the whole weekend," Lewis said accurately. "When you get into that, it plays a big momentum. It's a big momentum swing for you. It's just hard to win on the road. I don't care who you are, I don't care how good you are, it's hard to win on the road.

"For us to work as hard as we did, get 12 wins, do the things we were supposed to do, and now get this home playoff game, we have positioned ourselves to be in the right place. Now we have to go finish it."

The divisional round begins Saturday with New Orleans (13-4) at San Francisco (13-3). It ends with the New York Giants (10-7) at defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay (15-1).

Houston lost 29-14 at Baltimore in October, when the Texans were healthier than they have been for the last six weeks. But they've dealt with their injuries so well that they won their first division crown and, last week in their postseason debut, beat the Bengals handily.

So if hosting a playoff game is relatively new for the Ravens – they have done it three times, but haven't won one since 2000, the year they took the Super Bowl – being in one is totally new this year for the Texans.

Also new would be a win over the Ravens, who are 5-0 against Houston.

"It's been pretty one-sided so, we've got to get on the board," tackle Eric Winston said. "At the same time, you've got to look back on it and I don't think a lot of that stuff is going to have a lot of bearing on this game either, though. So, there's different guys, there's a different situation and we all know from past experiences that playoffs, funny things happen in the playoffs and games turn out a lot different than they did in the regular season. So hopefully we can hold true to that."

I'll choose to go into this game with the mindset that it's easy to stand in front of bulls. But it's dang hard to bring them down.
