Me too! Some of the other teams have really active fan-bases over here. When I go to the IS game at the end of Oct you won't see many Texans jerseys but mostly patriots, packers, steelers, giants jerseys etc. When the Texans win the SB I guarantee a lot of new fans will start supporting the Texans over here. I'm just glad to be a part of it before they win it...Maybe someday we'll have an active fan base here too

People might call them Americas team (I don't know why ) but they certainly aren't the most popular team here....that accolade probably goes to the Bears & Patriots.The Bears became popular because they came here in the 1986. The Patriots have been here before and are coming again in Oct...also having the word England in the name seems to attract some whereas others have supported them since the early days. Either way both teams have many bandwagon type fans (Like any successful team). The Bears are still attracting fans here based on their great 85/86 teams. (In reality they are treated week in week out to Jay cutler and Co lol

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

*shrugs*

No one has completely shut AJ down this season much as he's not getting the high number of targets we've come to expect from a healthy AJ.

There's two reasons:

1.) The Texans are just running the ball more than anyone in the league. I expect the numbers to become more balanced out between Tate and Foster as the season wears on though.

2.) The Texans don't HAVE to depend on AJ solely for in the air production anymore. This is a good thing in the long run. There are things I can and have criticized Kubiak in the past but, the way this offense is currently composed is scary for opponents. Matt Schaub is really distributing the ball REALLY well, finding open guys, taking what the defense gives, and isn't afraid to throw it to the open man. Now whether that's AJ, OD, Martin, Walter, Casey, Foster or Tate out of the backfield or Jean it's really becoming pick your poison with this offense.

What's got to be even scarier is these young guys at WR aren't yet fully integrated into this offense. AKA it's going to get better.

So Cromartie... you feel like you can cover AJ. Great! Can the rest of your teamates cover the other weapons in this offense?

Besides significantly limiting the plays that they target him, if you notice his routes are essentially avoiding acute cuts/curls/change of direction. They are straight-line or gentle angles. In their game play plans they are definitely showing sensitivity to avoiding moves that will encourage recurrence of hamstring, knee and ankle problems, while trying to further protect him from further aggravating his ongoing groin problem.

Ryan is going to do what he wanted to do the first time he ever played us....knock the crap out of Matt Schaub. Only problem is, I think our TEs are going to have a great game against that front.

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

I think I would rather watches AJ have limited looks in the regular season so that he can unload in the playoffs this year. We can make a playoff push just on the back of our run game alone.

AJ has been targeted deep as well. He had that TD pass to him against the Tacks that he never saw until it was too late. Schaub got the ball in the air early for a timing pass and AJ never got eyes on it. His numbers will be there when it matters.

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

I'm thinking AJ has a big game tonight, I think we'll open them up early on by taking advantage of Wilson across from him, leading them to leave him 1 on 1 at which point he'll go sick.

I agree they're going to come after Schaub hard and we'll need the right side of our Oline to hold up in this one and keep him upright, Schaub has a newfound knack of standing in the face of pressure and getting the pass away even when he's about to take a big hit, I don't want to see him having to be brave tonight, time for the youngsters to step up in pass pro.

he actually got a ball kicked out of his hands in the endzone iirc but still was upset about that

It's not easy for us Texans fan to accept, but Andre is not the player he was 5 years ago. Probably not even 2 or 3 years ago. He's not as fast as he was once and his focus isn't as sharp and he's now more injury plagued.
