I hope we go up there and avenge that embarrassing loss. We were 11-1 and were expected to be competitive and possibly win, and we lost big. Now, we are sputtering along and expected to lose, so a win would be fitting!

We can win this game. Putting pressure on Brady. A LOT of pressure. They only have Brady and recivers. The rest is garbage. Let's make a long night for him.

We are probably the best team in the NFL, barring mainly one position. Guess which one...

I'm not saying replacing him will be easy or can be done right away, but it's a problem if you want to win SBs.

Come on now... Cushing will be back next season. You can't expect too much out of Bradie James.

We could definitely use Cushing, but I think you know I meant QB.

2 critical factors in this one:

1 - we can NOT fall behind big early. Gotta stuff them on 2/3 of their first drives.

2- we MUST run the ball and keep Brady off the field. Follow the 49ers gameplan, and we have to hit hard.

Also, our special teams must be impeccable.

Overall I like our chances. Seeing J Jo play in his last season form last game was huge.

As much as fans like to rag on Matt Schaub, some of it warranted, a lot of our issues are NOT his fault, IMHO! I look at the sideline for the deflation of a positive attitude amongst our players. When you have half the team stomping on the field BEGGING Kubiak to let them go on a 4-1 and he settles for a field goal, then I can see why some would have a "F that" attitude. Kubiak is a gutless A-H, and that won't fly against an elite team like the Pats. Ya gotta have faith in your guys to pull it off, and it appears to me Kubiak does not have faith in MS, or in his offense, at this point in time. This will be our toughest battle this year, and if Kubes wants to hunker down and play scared, we are done!! JMO! We might get beat, but, at least go down FIGHTING!

The decisions not to go for it on 4th and 1 were both correct... this isn't college, our D was owning their O and there was no need to take a risk.

I agree with a lot that the article says but "backed into the playoffs" ? C'mon, 12-4 and beating the second place team in the division to win the division isn't "backing into the playoffs".

Math disagrees with you.

ALWAYS go for it there. We can't let the winning result deter us from that.

I don't actually think it's Matt's fault. It's not actually his fault he has a weak arm for an NFL QB (or that he's immobile). He just does. So do I, but nobody's counting on me either.

Advantages:

Head Coach - Pats
QB - Pats
OL - Pats
RB - Texans
WR - Push
TE - Pats

DL - Push
LB - Pats
Sec. - Texans

Special Teams, incl. K - Pats

AJ plus no one is about equal to their group of WRs, in my estimation. However, Brady + Welker + Gronk + Hernandez is better than Schaub + AJ + OD + well, no one really. Wilfork is a beast, but the Texans have Watt. Their front seven as a whole is better than the Texans front seven. If the OL can neutralize their DL often enough to get Arian Foster going, then there's a chance the Texans can get an early lead and grind the clock. But the Texans have to score TDs, not FGs. The Texans secondary is better than the Patriots, I believe, but when Brady is running what is effectively the run and shoot offense, it only matters so much. The Texans' tendency to fall prey to the play action pass to the TE in the red zone is worth keeping an eye on, because Gronkowski is not injured this game. Hernandez burned the Texans on it last time, but Gronk can do it anywhere in the end zone, not just the flats.

I hate to say it, but I predict the Patriots will win easily. If the weather is bad, that keeps the Texans in it, I believe, so I'm praying for snow.

The game was hyped as one of the best games of the year, and was one of the season’s most-watched games on Monday Night Football. But the Texans came into the game with exuding cockiness — this was the game the Texans travelled to wearing letterman’s jackets — while the Patriots came in prepared to take care of business.
I'm very surprised with this, did Texans actually exude cockiness? This strikes me as very un-Texan. Maybe this time Texans will be the ones taking care of business, one can only hope

Cushing frees up our mediocre olbs to create pressure = shutdown d meaning Schaub isn't a problem.

Not disagreeing that Schaub ain't the best, I actually started a thread before time when he went down last year...but we can win plenty with him and Cush both on the team. Bet mercilus looks better when Cush comes back too.
