Do you recall the game at all??

You talk like we got blown away.
They won by THREE.
Remember those two BS calls the zebras made on JJ Watt and that bogus pass interference call on that same drive. The D made plays to get off the field and the zebras kept giving the Colts additional chances.

So don't talk like we got blown out and embarrassed. The Zebras gave the Colts that game.

Forget about the W-L..... the Colts, like the Texans have had a relatively week schedule.

Watch how they play. The Colts is one of the most mistake prone teams in the league.

Even if the starters play, they will help us beat them. That's who they are. They did it last time, when we played poorly, & they'll do it again, even if we play poorly.

Because even when we play poorly, we are not giving the ball away. They are.

Your right. Forgetful in my old age.

Do you want them to lose to prove your point or do you want a Texans win?

Texans fan hoping Colts won't play whole game without their starters will be disappointed and should be worried of how Indy will treat this game.
This will be their biggest game of the year. They playing for their return cancer-battled coach and they playing for momentum to take to the playoffs. That is a BIG factor. We will face the best Colts this season and the only way we beat them is if we play our most complete game of the season.

It's been so long since that happen that my vision of the next Texans win coming in that fashion probably won't happen till next season.

I expect Texans to lose this game. I just hope our consolation prize is JJ Watt gets the sack record.

Default Re: Colts are 7 Point Dogs

If Texans don't win TO battle.
If Texans have 6 or more penalties
If Texans also lose special teams.
If Kubiak is predictable in his call playing as usual
and the Colts play starters all game and maybe even if they don't
I think Texans lose

I think Matt will feel the pressure and force the ball and we will lose TO battle.

I think Kubiak will be predictable in play calling and the Colts will pressure Matt on 3rd down and Matt will make mistakes. Matt is a huge liability when it comes to being able to create. He has really gotten worse as the season has progressed. I hoped at the beginning of he season he would get more mobile not less. i think there is a good chance once the season is over we hear that Matt has been injured and tried to play through it.

I think there is just too huge a difference between MS and Luck in being able to create when the play does not work perfectly.

Colts will be able to shut down running game even with all our pro bowlers and then tee off on Matt. Colts just need to shut down AJ and know they won't get hurt by other WR.

Shut down Watt on D and they will move the ball and score. It may not take much offense by the Colts to win this game because I don't see Texans scoring much unless the D has multiple take aways.

I know negative outlook but the memory of last weeks game has not faded yet.

Just my opinion. Hope I am wrong.

Just out of curiosity, what have you seen from the Colts that makes you believe they can do all that?

Stop the run game? Stop Jj Watt? Win the TO battle? Beat Gary's predictable play calling?

The whole gamut? To do everything you've stated, they would have to play the best game they've played all year. Starters or not.

Stack the line and make Matt beat them only GK is determined to run.
Double team Watt.
Matt feels pressure tries to force it and throws one or two interceptions and loses the ball when Colts rush him.
Maybe I should have also added Gary's tendency to keep the other team in the game with his playcalling.

Sure hope you are right and i am dead wrong.

Again, what makes you think the Colts can stop the run? even if they put 10 men on the line. They couldn't "decipher" Gary's grand plan last time. They doubled & tripled Watt..... he got 3 sacks.. he had one of the most dominant games of any Defensive Lineman at any time in history.


We're a good football team going through a slump.

They are not a good football team.

In the minds of some "fans" we've already lost that game. We've also lost our first play-off game wild card weekend, & we've already blown up the team. They're looking for a new QB, RT, WR, & HC as we speak.
