Say what you want to say about high-powered offenses in today's league... but what I saw today was defenses bringing their team to the Superbowl.

Both the 49ers and Ravens totally shut down these high-powered offenses in the 2nd half, not allowing either team to score a single point... allowing the offenses to make a comeback.

Maybe the bigger issue isn't Schaub not being elite, but why can't out defense stop elite QBs.

The original Cleveland Browns owned by Art Modell became the team that put dirty bird logos on their helmets when they moved to Baltimore in the late 90s. Yep, it indeed took a few decades for the Baltimore Ravens franchise to finally get to the Super Bowl in '00-'01, as well as win!

yep.

sometimes i'd rather take my chance with schaub in the shotgun with 4+ wr formations (and more passes on first down) than try to force the run/pa pass when it's clearly not there.

i mean we've seen schaub lead the nfl in passing yards (and the team to a 9-7 record) with no run game, im sure it can work during times where the run game is not at it's strongest. even if he goes down in flames i'd rather go down swinging than continue with a conservative gameplan on offense when it's failing.

After watching the game today I realized their coaches, GMs, and owners have something we don't........ A sack! Just look at the chances they took in the offseason and during the season.

Niners- signed Moss who made plays today to help them get to the Super Bowl. Replaced their starting QB knowing they would be criticized for it. Re-signed some of their free agents and made it work even though it was tough cap wise.

Ravens- fired the O-coordinator. Trusted both Lewis and Suggs on their word they could come back from season ending injuries. Signed a player that gave them a gift in a playoff game last year. Reshuffled their o-line at the end of the year.

These are just a few examples....... sometimes you have to bet big to win big. I don't know if we're even betting at all.

Nope, they relied on less substitutions as well.

That's called adapting, or "taking what they give you". I'd really love to see the Texans make similar halftime adjustments.

A QB who is not afraid to throw the deep ball first, short second?

A QB who actually moves his feet and doesn't curl up n a fetal position when pressure gets near...

Not saying Flacco hasn't had his "Schaub" moments, but he grabbed opportunity by the throat and ran with it in the playoffs...Schaub ran crying like a little biatch....

A team as a whole who are not intimidated by the mere sight of the Patriots or any team in the AFC for that matter. A team with the swagger of KNOWING they can win a Super Bowl and a head coach that makes them believe...

Texans are just a team that HOPES to get to the Super Bowl one day...


This what the Ravens have that the Texans don't and won't have while Kubiak and Schaub are on this team...

Oh come on now, the Ravens have been so close the last 4-5 of seasons and chocked it away just as the texans have done the last 2 seasons.

So lets not go over board here.

You throw enough pitched to a blind man and he is lauble to get a hit eventually !!!!!

I can't believe I read this thread. I can't believe that people are comparing schaub and flacco. Newsflash, both qbs put up the same number of points. The difference is our defense. Anyone that blames schaub is an idiot. Bottom line, if you score 28 pts and lose it is your defense.
