QB and K. That's basically most of it in a nutshell.

When your QB is throwing horrible picks at key times, and throwing short of the stick 9 out of 10 times (until he HAS to) what can you do. Not to mention a young fat Aggie that can't hit the broad side of a barn.

Vegas has the Texans as the second favorite in the AFC.
That's the leading indicator as far as I'm concerned.

And Bullock did hit the post on one occasion and put the ball through once but a time-out voided it.

Did anyone mention Peyton Manning?

Or we are two games into the season?

Every QB has games like that, of course, but we've seen this from a Schaub offense before. He'll move the ball up and down the field, but settle for short field punts or FGs. It's one reason I have spent years complaining about landing on 16 points with a TD and 3 FGs. The Texans do it all the time.
The Texans are not out of line on field goal attempts.

% field goal attempts to total field goal attempts and TDs.

Texans 46%
Ravens 46%
Bengals 47%
Broncos 40%
Colts 49%
Patriots 37% (so far this season 67%)

So of the AFC playoff teams the big standout is the Patriots. Broncos did well. Everyone else clumped.

Default Re: We don't look as good as the Broncos

It's a long season and at some point the Bronco's are also not going to look as good as the Broncos have looked.

I just want the Texans to win enough games this year to get into the playoffs and not be staggering around like Apollo Creed at the end of a "Rocky" fight when they get there. That's really all that matters. It took me a long time to see the regular season and particularly early season winning for what it is. A qualifying round and a beauty pageant.

How good did the Ravens look early in the season last year? Long season, there is a reason they play all the games.

Default Re: We don't look as good as the Broncos

We went into Mile High Stadium and Matt Schaub won a shootout with Peyton Manning that was later brushed off as "early in the season, Peyton isn't Peyton yet."

But the Broncos only lost one more time after that in the regular season.

I have a feeling this team will rise to the occasion over the next 3 games and surprise some people. We are every bit as talented as any team in the league and now have the experience to go with the young talented stars of this team. This is our year to win a Super Bowl and by golly we're gonna take that Lombardi Trophy which is our's by rights!

"Ask Madden" > The Kubes.

I'm pretty sure there are other things that I forgot.

We've got the OL that we want (stretched for Newton).... we're starting our front 7 defensively from last year. We got Cush back, Jjo is healthy, we've got an upgrade at WR2. OD is healthy, Andre is healthy, Tate is healthy....

So what's up?
Tell you what, let's revisit this question after we play the Ravens. They will be the only common opponent between us and the Denver Foreheads.

If you recall, the Foreheads looked pretty mundane for the first half of that game; in fact, the Ravens were up 17-14 at the half.

Then, in the second half, the Ravens morphed into the Jaguars. Post-season Flacco went back into regular-season Flacco; i.e., 3 & outs and INTs, blocked kicks and other S/T screw-ups, dropped TD passes... the Ravens' DBs forgot they were supposed to actually cover and tackle. In short, they pretty much gave that game to the Foreheads in the second half. Did I mention these same World Champ Ravens could only score two TDs on the Browns??
Are you really impressed with that win?

Then there's the NYG game. The Giants don't look like they can beat anybody. Eli's thrown, what, seven INTs in TWO games and the Giants' D has given up 77 pts in those same two games... Not very impressive either.

I WILL give Peyton this much, when he sees a weak sister, he has no hesitation in stomping them into the ground. ...even if he's got kinfolk on the other team.

But I want to see Peyton up against SF or Seattle... In fact, I think Tennessee will give them more fits than the Ravens did because they won't hesitate to smack Peyton and his receivers around.

Denver gets easy points with special teams.
Denver's offense is more explosive. They can score fast and often.

Their big weakness is their defense. I wanna see how it holds up in a 16 game season. I think they have looked really good like we did last year against mediocre competition. Let's see how they do against playoff calibre teams.

Good one. I didn't think about that one. They're returning punts for a TD & we're missing 3 FGs in a game.

The Ravens barely beat the Browns this week and the Giants are currently 0-2 with a ton of turnovers vs. Dallas.
Or the Broncos have faced two mediocre defenses and we faced two that have improved quite a bit from last year. If the Broncos blow out the Chargers and Titans give me a call

It's all about perception and the amount of points you score.

Against the Ravens, the Broncos were losing 17-14 at halftime. And then outscored them 35-10 in the second half.

Against the Giants, the Broncos were only up 10-9 at halftime. And then outscored the Giants 31-14 in the second half.

But take another look at who they faced. The Giants D has given up a LOT of points (77 pts in two games, thank you) and their offense has made a lot of turnovers (TEN ...in just two games; 7 Eli INTs and 3 fumbles) so far this year. The Ravens looked anemic against the Browns and their offense actually performed a lot better against Broncos.

The Broncos are going to be tough, don't get me wrong, but they're looking good right now because I think they're crushing crushable opponents. We did a good bit of that last year, ourselves. Hopefully, we can get back into that mode soon.
I had written up a long, explanatory diatribe but you've captured what I've seen too. Denver really hasn't had a tough game yet

We've played two young and hungry teams trying make a name for themselves. Chargers were playing their home opener for a new coach and the Titans were still high off the butt-whipping they gave the team formally known as the Steelers (I don't know who those guys are now)...

And how better to make a name for yourself and prove all the preseason talking heads they underestimated your team than to "take it to" one of the preseason Super Bowl faves... ...that would be Us.

The Foreheads, on the other hand, have played two over-rated teams who got their preseason rankings on past reputation. And many of the players responsible for attaining said rep are gone or injured.

Didja look at the Foreheads' schedule?? It's CAKE?! SD and KC might well give them more trouble than the Ravens and the Giants did. Beyond that, the Texans and N.E. are the toughest games they have left this season. AND by the time they play us, here at Reliant on Dec. 22nd, both teams may be playoff locks and may well be resting their starters.

I just don't see Denver being "all that".

The Broncos played a Raven's team that is a shell of itself and a Giants team that is just awful. There are no comparisons to the Texans and Broncos.
We played a Charger team that is loaded offensively and a Titan team that is determined to make the playoffs. I doubt either the Ravens or the Giants make it to the post season.
