In your opinion, do you think the Chargers & Titans will be better than the Ravens & Giants when it's all said & done?

Giants and Ravens are not playoff caliber teams.

My short answer is "yes".

The Ravens are ranked #26 in team defense; they'd probably be worse if their 2nd game wasn't against the offense-less Browns (in two games they've scored ONE TD). The Giants are even worse; they're dead last in defense. Isn't tough D supposed to be the signature of both these teams? Where is it?

OTOH, the Chargers just went score for score with what was predicted to be a high octane Eagle offense. The Titans beat down the favored Steelers and gave us all we wanted in our house. Now whether the Chargers and Titans can keep bringing it the rest of the way remains to be seen.

Besides, with respect to this discussion, what happens in the future is irrelevant to now. And now, while the Giants and Ravens are playing truly sucky football is when the Broncos got to play those teams. Now, while the Chargers and Titans are playing very competitive football is when we had to play them.

Upon closer inspection our two wins could be considered better than the Broncos' two wins. But the popular East Coast manufactured group think will never admit to that.

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

Last year we came out like gangbusters through the first 3/4 of the season while the Broncos struggled out of the gate. We beat the Broncos in Denver. I was there. It isn't any easy place to win if you aren't the Broncos.

The Ravens were hot out of the gate and struggled over the last half of the season. We destroyed the Ravens here in Houston. I wondered if the franchise was going to fold after such a miserable performance.

So how did all of this affect the season?

Final results:

Broncos had the #1 seed and couldn't hold court because they have a QB that forgets that the NFL season goes into February.

Texans fell apart at the end, squeaked out a win against a Cincy team and couldn't get any breaks against the Pats.

Ravens snuck in because nobody else in the AFC North wanted the division. Got hot at the right time behind a QB that didn't play his best ball until it mattered (by this I mean right before his contract was up).

What does it mean?

The team that wins September, October, or November still has to play in December and January. These games mean nothing. I think the Ravens and the Giants aren't as good as some might have thought. The Broncos had a little revenge things going against the Ravens, too. Similar to what we had when they were here last season. (I think we get back at the Pats the same way). The Titans have a very good D, a solid running game, a good O-Line, and a crummy QB. Hmmm...sounds familiar except Schaub isn't crummy. He's not a Brady/Manning/Brees/Rodgers either, though. The Chargers have a good D, a rejuvinated passing attack thanks to Mike McCoy, and we were playing well past our bedtimes on the west coast.

I would love to have won each game by 20 points, but I'm more concerned about being ready to win in January and February. This team will be tested. They'll lose a few games, but should come out of the season better prepared to do what it takes.

Pretty much.

Denver can look as good as they want to right now, and so can every other team.

Lets get hot around December. Lets get it in gear then.

We looked better than the Ravens at the start of the season last year too...

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

Should get a better evaluating metric after this Sunday. The Donkey's have played very good in spurts, I'm not sold on their ground game against a highly skilled defense, but then again Peyton has nasty weapons in the receiving corps. I'd still go ahead and say the Texans have more talent overall. Question is will all the elements start playing together at a high level at the same time? Good teams will find ways to win even when they don't deserve it, and that's what the Texans have done, but I'd like to see some good old fashioned ass whoopings for a few games in a row to start cementing their hold on the division, and building momentum for the late season clash with DEN, which I feel will be the game that decides home field throughout.

Do you think San Diego deserved to win? They started out great, but couldn't put a drive together to secure the W.

Titans certainly did not outplay our team. Their defense is stout... the way they were back in the day. But offensively... & talk about bad play calling... We found someone Kubiak can "consistently" out-coach.

We might not have deserved to win, but they sure as heck didn't.

Not only did San Diego move the ball well and look pretty crisp against us, they did the same against Philly, and took the W. I'm sure they're kicking themselves knowing that they could be 2-0. I just feel that the Texans have way too much talent on the field at all times, save special teams. If the players can put it all together they dominate, as was the case from about the 9 minute mark in the 3rd quarter of that game. I just wish the team was more consistent, but its still early.

Titans had 2 good drives against the team, actually one - one of the opening drives IIRC. The other touchdown drive was courtesy of Kareem just not having his head in the game in that 3rd quarter drive where he head butt the receiver and then got beat for the TD. Other than that I felt the defense was playing at a high level. You have to give credit to that Titan defense, they are good. I wont be surprised to see that squad as a top 10 defense, but again with Foster,Johnson,Tate,Daniels,Hopkins ... that's a lot of firepower. Im waiting to see the offense just start lighting people up. I freaking love Munch, I wish him the best there, but he doesn't really have a lot to work with, doesn't excuse the crazy use of timeouts and weird plays, I just don't think he's all that confident with what he has, or maybe he's just not head coach material, book is still out.

Why not? Because they have that one player that:

Tied the NFL record for TDs in a game.
12x Pro Bowler
Fastest to 4,00 completions
Fastest to 400 passing touchdowns

And dozens of many more records...

We tryin' to win titles in September? Is this what's hot on the streets?

I preach 1-0 every week, and we got folks looking for Lombardi before the 1st day of Autumn.

I can't even...TK, you're my guy...but looking impressive now? It's nice and all, but you'll see Sunday when the Jags make the Seahawks sweat. NFL is so week to week, it's unreal.
