We matchup really well with the Ravens, to be honest. Maybe better than any other competent offense. The Ravens love to run the ball and they don't have almost anyone behind Torrey Smith as a pass catching option. We can stop the run, so it was more difficult on the Ravens than it was against San Diego and other teams that will put more emphasis on their passing attack. The Ravens didn't even have Ray Rice out there today and were in turtle mode for pretty much a full quarter. They still managed to move the ball efficiently enough to score enough points and eat enough clock.

They don't get paid as well as Schauber. He hasn't been good all year. If he continues to play like this, we won't make the playoffs.

How many td passes did Schaub throw today? 0. How many times were we in the red zone? Plenty of times. Kubiak and Schaub are a big fat joke.

I agree with you. Here is what I predicted after the Titans game last week.

It was nice to get a win last night but the Texans were exposed by a mediocre team. I'm seeing 9-7 and maybe even 8-8 because of the nfc west. They were supposed to beat the chargers. I have them going 2-2 against the NFC west but that division got a lot tougher this year and could be 1-3 or even 0-4. The Rams and Cardinals are much improved. The Chiefs are much better this year under Andy Reid. The Texans schedule is a lot tougher than it looked when it first came out. The same schedule last year would have been much easier. Peyton is better and has way more targets and Luck has a year under his belt. The only gimmes I see are the raiders and jags.

Schaub shouldn't be mentioned in the same post with Peyton Manning.... but this time last year, the great one was having trouble getting in sync with his receivers. Schaub has been showing issues as well. His security blanket isn't there anymore & he never gelled with KeyShawn.

With our issues at tackle, maybe the TEs had to release late. I don't know that, didn't pay much attention other than they weren't as big a factor in this game as I thought they would be.

Hopefully it's just a matter of time.

The Texans ran more plays (slightly) and led in time of possession (slightly). The problem was that the offense could put up points for the opposition, but not themselves. This offense continues to put the team into a hole, and it finally bit them in the arse today.

This is why I started the next 7 games thread. Thats how important this Baltimore game was, and how worried I was after D Brown was out.

This year is nothing like the last two. Breezing our way early. But maybe this is exactly what we need. We will have to fight our way till the end after a 2-4 start. Maybe we are the best we can be at the end of the season, not in the beginning.

Totally agree. The pick six followed by a punt returned for a TD.

That changed the game. They're pinning their ears back & we're feeling pressure to score.

Opening with 2 fgs changed the game, if you don't put good teams away early with touchdowns, you will lose. Our redzone play calling is still pathetic.

A disaster formula with this current Oline no doubt. We could not afford to lose turnover battle or have a failed special teams day in Baltimore aganst that front 7. We were only ever going to win this in a 16-13 type battle.

Cushing's been very good. It wasn't his best game today, but I think he's at least earned his money. Graham and Lechler, too.

I now know better than to believe McNair would cut Kubiak loose after a non-playoff season. Not happening. But, Schaub is on a shorter leash. He can't continue to be mediocre and draw these massive paychecks.
