Default Re: Just stuff I can't get out of my head

Matt Schaub played a horrible first half. Instead of taking what the defense was giving him which was plenty of open receivers underneath for chunk yardage he went for the home run on the first couple drives. I guess he felt he needed to air it out to compete with Brady or something when he should have been playing smart instead. Once we were down a few scores we just went in to a huge tail spin.

And I was certainly scratching my head at the play calling. One thing is for sure, we didn't tip our hand on what we intend to do in the playoffs....lol. Unless that plan is to lose miserably.

You couldn't find a way to get him in a better position to get Brady?

Gimmicks - This team is full of them! From Shaun Cody and those videos, to the "ninja assasian", to "Bulls on Parade", to the letterman jackets, Bob McNair knows how to sell a gimmick. How about less gimmicks and just focusing on winning a Superbowl. Because if you didn't notice, the Texans keep getting drilled by teams and players that have them.
I disagree with those two points. The secondary is blowing because apparently only JJ Watt is receiving a paycheck. They were constantly double and triple teaming him, and he got to Brady (albeit too late). WTF is the rest of our front 7 then?

Who cares about gimmicks. You win, they're great, you lose, certainly not why we lost. Though I hope they burn the jackets.

Or Hell, if they like them that much take them away and make them earn them back, we'll pretend we're a college team.

I honestly thought we were going to see a beat down blow out, like the Ravens game.

& we did. I was just wrong about who was going to be doing the beat down. I thought we'd be the one getting to the QB, batting down balls, & befuddling their offense. But they out-Texaned us.

They flipped that script like a Rosencopter.

I think Schaub just didn't see the safety who came across and got the pick. Could be several reasons he didn't throw it to Foster, but he obviously should have in hind-sight. I think he stares down the #1 receiver (for the play called) sometimes, but I'm pretty sure he didn't see the safety coming across or he wouldn't have tried that.

PS-I just realized you were'nt just talking about that play. I guess I was still thinking about it.

The rest of your rant I can get behind. This... He was beating the crap out of Tom Brady. Didn't record a sack or a pass defensed, but he had a good game against a good QB. The man needs help. A back end that can cover man to man for 2 seconds would have been good last night.

All this talk about elite QBs beating man to man.... I'm just not buying it. Chad Henne can beat man to man if we can't cover for 2 seconds.

I guess it depends on the definition of "cover," because I thought a lot of those guys were covered. That's how an elite QB beats a blitz; he completes quick passes to receivers even if they are covered. Other than that, a lot of guys just looked like clutzes out there last night--like KJ trying to recover the fumble and several guys trying to make tackles. It's like they forgot to put their seriousness caps on under their helmets.

Good rants. We need to get it our of our systems and be pragmatic about this team in the playoffs. To much blind homerism and koolaide baths around here lately. This team has some issues that elite teams will exploit to dominate.

The only two players that looked like they showed up last night was JJ Watt and Andre Johnson. No surprise there.

But from coaching - all three phases - down to players, the rest of the team has been watching too much hype on NFLN & ESPN and believing it. They strut around when they have not EARNED the right to strut.

They have earned nothing but a ticket to the playoffs. That, in and of itself, is not an accomplishment. Regular season is always just a means to an end. They had better figure it out, or they will be one & done come January. I guess another AFC South "championship" banner is something to look forward to...but nothing to brag about.

Appreciate your candor. I thought we'd probably lose the game, but I didn't dream we wouldn't be competitive ? I didn't see that coming at all ?

I wasn't totally shocked. Pissed is more like it.

I wanted to believe that the Rodgers fiasco was because J.Jo. wasn't really healthy, but now it happens again...

I just hope a lot of people learned something big last night.

I was shocked. Shocked as all get out.

I was worried about our secondary.... forgot about our pass rush (frek'n Titans game)

I never imagined their twenty whatever ranked defense was going to stop us from scoring or winning the TOP.
