His weak sauce comment than the Texans lack talent though is ridiculous though.
Ridley had 12 TDs, Foster had 17 total. Easy decision.

Where is all this talent?
Same Rankings Put Decker over Roddy White so have fun with that. The fact that Foster is having a 'bad' year with 1500 yards is really all you need to know about the two.

Where is all the talent? You have the Center, LG, and LT as pro-bowl players. You have a top 5 RB, a really good TE that must be covered.

On defense you have the BEST defensive player in the NFL in J.J. Watt, Antonio Smith, Joseph, Manning, Quinn are all good players. You all are just lucky that Cushing is not playing and I mean extremely lucky that he's not playing or your team is probably playing in Reliant this weekend.

With all that said, I don't have to make a case that this team has talent. They went 12-4 so obviously they have talent.

O. D. Has been playing hurt for awhile.
And we don't know how effective the Gronk will be after a long lay-off.
Maybe he's fresher; maybe he has some rust; maybe the Texans knock him out again.

Default Re: The Fim Room: Why The Patriots Should Be So Very, Very Afraid Of The Texans

The thing that gives me a glimpse of hope is that it is very tough to win twice against anyone in this league. The Texans slow, plodding offense will likely be shut down this weekend since it seems to have been exposed by late November (nobody is falling for the tricky stuff this late in the season) but if they can play great defense they have a shot. I wish we were playing the Ratbirds like we should be playing...too bad we didn't let Denver v NE cancel one of themselves out....but that hash is just re-hash at this point.

Numerous articles I have read have stated that gronkowski was favoring the broken arm in the final game against the Dolphins.

The Pats fell for their own tricky play when. Patrick Cbung fumbled the direct snap on a fake punt against the Jets in their last play-off game.

I heard an interesting stat about Tom Brady on the radio this morning.

When he's pressured by a blitz and only has up to 3 seconds to pass, he's something around 70% completion.

But, when he's given longer to pass - i.e. a cover 2 defense - his completions drop to around 40%.

I think Wade's aggressive style is something that plays into one of Brady's strengths. Do you think there is any chance that Wade dials it back and tries to force the Patriots to run more?

I agree with you about beating a team twice in a season. Kubiak acts like they do not remember that game, but I do not believe it. Of course they remember a game that started their tailspin, a game in which they tried to strut up to Foxboro and got manhandled and dominated. I'm hoping this is the incentive for them in some way. It would be for most people.

I think that, despite what most would say, the offense showed signs of life against the Bengals. Do I think we would win a shoot-out with NE? No. But, I don't think it is a certainty that our offense gets shut down. The slump in the last part of the season seemed more about lack of execution than defenses exposing it.

Hopefully, Wade will change it up similar to how Rex Ryan changed up the defense in the Jets' playoff rematch versus the Pats in 2010.

In theory, its the way to go... In reality can we be efficient enough against this offense when we hardly ever played the zone? Or are we so committed to man, that there is no turning back? Honest question.

40%?

I found it hard to believe.

I rewatched the Jets Patriots 2010 play-off game a couple days ago when the Jets rushed mostly 3 or 4 (actually, it's more complicate than that), Brady was still doing well.

29-45 (64.44%) for 299 yards and 2 TDs.

The one INT he threw was just a weird play where he threw over the head of the RB into the hands of a LB (he wasn't pressured).

And his TE dropped a TD (Crumpler I think) in the end zone.

It's quite a bit more involved than that.
I want to rewatch that Jets game one more time to really get into it.
I did watch each play quite carefully, but didn't take a whole lot of notes for the second half.

41% if he takes longer than 3 secs to get rid of the ball.

There is precedent for a heavy-blitzing 3-4 defense playing aggressively in the regular season against Brady and losing, then meeting again in the postseason and winning. The 2009 Ravens and 2010 Jets both lost regular-season meetings and gained redemption in the playoffs, but they had to adjust their strategy:

2009 Ravens
* Baltimore sent at least five rushers on 21 of 37 dropbacks (56.8 percent) in a Week 4 loss. Brady finished 14 of 20 for 167 yards and the game-winning touchdown against added pressure, and was sacked only once.


Comparing Tom Brady vs. 5+ rushers - facing
'09 Ravens/'10 Jets in reg. season & playoffs:


Pct of Tot Dropbacks:

Reg - 48%
Playoffs - 17%

Dropbacks per Sack:

Reg - 17.0
Playoffs - 8.0

TD-Int:

Reg - 4-0
Playoffs - 0-0

Total QBR:

77.3
13.2

Reg - 2-1 record
Playoffs - 0-2 record


* In their playoff rematch, the Ravens sent extra rushers on 10 of 45 dropbacks (22.2 percent), and Brady’s overall numbers in Baltimore’s playoff win were 23 of 42, 154 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Brady also was sacked three times and fumbled on New England’s opening drive, setting up the Ravens at the NE 17-yard line.

2010 Jets
* New York sent at least five rushers in their two regular-season meetings on 30 of 69 dropbacks (43.5 percent), with Brady finishing 18 of 28 for 335 yards and three touchdowns. Though the Jets won their first meeting of the season in Week 2, New England won 45-3 in Week 13 on Monday Night Football, highlighted by Brady’s 8-of-13, 199-yard, 3-TD performance against added pressure.

* In the playoffs, the Jets sent extra pressure on 6 of 50 dropbacks (12.0 percent), and Brady was sacked five times in New York’s win, finishing 29 of 45 for 299 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

If history holds, committing extra pass rushers on Sunday would not be wise for Wade Phillips and the Texans’ defense. Those defenders would be better served dropping into coverage and taking away quick-to-develop routes, like the 2009 Ravens and 2010 Jets did in previous playoff victories.
