Either our defense played great, or as Reed put it, their offense sucked.

Now, if we were Ravens fans, we would be agreeing with Reed, and not giving the Texans defense any credit, would we?

It just depends on what team you happen to be rooting for, that's all.

No, but it does not have to be as good as the 2000 Ravens defense when we have an offense like ours. Heck, that Ravens D was so awesome that it even got Trent freakin' Dilfer a ring! lol!

They did not have Andre Johnson, Arian Foster, and Matt Schaub. That's a three headed offensive monster that can really do some damage when coupled with a great defense.

My point was basically if the mantra of great defense, good running game, and avoid turnovers, can be applied to the 2012 Texans and we see Houston's first pro football team in the Super Bowl. We certainly have the pieces to make that a realistic goal.

Koolaide drinking? Perhaps. But I do not think it is delusional in any sort of way.

I think the big difference is the anonymous source was saying that Sanchez can't do it, where it sounds like Reed thinks Flacco can.

& he's right, it ain't no secret, Flacco & that Oline are going to have to play better if they are to go where they want to go.

This may not have been the best timing, or the best way to get that message out, but I don't think Reed is calling Joe out or meant any ill will.

The media is really overreacting to this story. Hearing Ed talk, it really doesn't sound like he's criticizing Flacco. Even if he was trying to criticize Flacco, Ed has every right to criticize Flacco becuase he will probably be the reason the Ravens dont't win a Super Bowl.

I think Ed Reed missed the mark on his criticism of Flacco. First and foremost he should have gone off on him about that 70's porn stache. I mean Flacco looks ridiculous!!!!!

Our Defense was on his ass all game enough said and Ed Reed just told what everyone saw during the game if it were not for the turnovers we would won the game.

Great comment. As much as Flacco is criticized, if Yates was half as good as Flacco on that day maybe we could have been playing Sunday.

Or....if our defense could have recovered the ball at least one of the three times it hit the ground, we could have won. Team loss.

Didn't realize it had to be a binary result.

Yeah, if only our 5th round rookie QB with 6 starts in his career after being inactive for 10 weeks could be half as good as a four year veteran QB that has multiple year playoff experience...yeah, that's a reasonable expectation...

We have this really nifty spell-check feature in the forum. I use it all the time. What we don't have, but desperately need, is a logic verification feature.

Honestly at this point it's the offense that worries me. We probably need to scrap all of our receivers not named Andre and start new there...
I think Sharpton coming back from IR will help quite a bit with the first part. That will at least give us Sharpton as the main backup and Dobbins for run situations (injury is obviously still a concern).

As for the second part, I think Walter is still a very good possession receiver, but I would love to see a home run threat (who actually catches the ball) as the #2, and Walter as the #3 (depending on the situation). Walter is great for moving the chains and with Andre and a speedster to open up more room, should still be very effective.
