The Jags have allowed opposing QBs to throw for 9 TDs & and 1114 yards the past 4 games. Over the same period, Leftwich has passed for 1273 yards with 6 TDs.

In the past 4 games, Carr has thrown for 1099 yards & 6 TDs. While the Texan defense has given up 1067 yards in the air plus 9 TDs .

I’m sure the 2 coaching staffs have “schemed” in previous weeks, as well. Each team’s defense has had their good & bad moments. Now I’m not going to say that the Texans and Jags will absolutely put up big time passing yards against each other. But, the statistics indicate that they should.

With :03 seconds left on the play clock David Carr up top for the win at the goal line. Storybook ending.

But seriously. I see Carr and Leftwich having 300 yard games, and 2 TD's each. Houstons D steps up at home and keeps Taylor out of the endzone. Kris Brown boots in 3 field goals. Josh "I wanna be like Vanderjagt" Scobee gets 1 field goal.

This is gonna be a really tough game for the Texans. One thing we're going to have to do is establish the run to be successful through the air which is the place we'll ultimately have to win. Our defense will have to step up big like they did against Tennesse, especially our run defense. I think the whole key to the game is getting ahead early and dictating the pace of the game. Byron Leftwich has proven that he's not a guy you want with the ball last if you're only up by one score. I think in the end, we will eke out a 24-14 game that will be closer contested than that scoreline suggests.

You are confused. You still cannot get over your loss to the Texans and your board has been abandoned. The Titanic has sunk.

I beliee Jacksonville will explode this week. I hate to say it (or you texan fans sake) but i think the win over Indy really got this Offense going. I hope i'm right, you hope i'm wrong.

My PIck
Jags-34
Taxans-17

now all of you can get mad at me and tell me i'm wonrg. But thats hwo i feel. I also knew they would win the Indy game this time last week, just a gut feeling.
This Guy Is A Bum!!!!

Above you is Tennessee and Oakland.. 2 teams we have beaten. Below you is Detroit and San Diego.. the first two teams we played and lost too, but honestly most texans fans arent counting those games since we were not "ourselves" at that time.

Also below you is Minnesota.. who beat us on the strength of their offense.. but just barely.

you have a great run defense.. but at this point our running game only has to be good enough to make you consider it.. not be dominant. And it is good enough to do that.

So.. if you think about it. We have played 2 of the best offenses in the game in Minnesota and KC... beating one and almost beating the other.. your offense is not close to theirs (you are 15th, they are 1st and 5th) And we have played two passing defenses above yours, and won.

SO.. looking at it from a statistical standpoint.. we have you beat on both offense and defense.

Now.. to be fair, lets look at it from your standpoint.

You have played against one passing offense better than ours, Indi, and won. You have also played alot of rushing offenses better than ours, KC, SD, Ten, Indi, and Denver (btw, did you know we have a higher ranked rushing offense than you? we average more yards per game and have 5 tds to your 4)

these teams have a better passing defense than us: KC, Tennessee, Denver, and Buffalo. and EVERY team you played had a better rushing defense than us.

So then.. statistically you could say that we have the worst defense you have come up against.. and are about average as offenses you have played goes.


Here is the kicker though.

We have the "worst" rushing defense.. yet we shut down tennessee who has a rushing offense far bette than yours. we have the worse passing defense.. yet 2 of the teams we beat have a higher passing offense than yours.

SO.. what can we deduce from all this?

stats dont mean ****.. and we are still going to win.
Check out the statistics major, go get em!!!!

Blah blah blah

Hey dude our strength is our passing game as well, and you all are 26th against the pass, advantage Jags. Your rushing offense is 23rd in the league. What makes you think your offense will keep up with ours, when Payaton who has one of the best offenses in the league couldn't even do it last week with James, and KC couldn't do it the week before with Holmes? I hope you’re not trying to say that Houston has a better offense than KC and the Dolts.

Stats are not what make this game so worrisome, it's about a race to the top, a race in which we are leading mind you. In my mind the biggest threat to the Jags this week is the probability that the Texans will have the advantage motivation wise.

I think motivation in the parity reality of the NFL plays a huge role in being the ultimate pivotal point in a game. San Diego, Monday night... enough said. Motivation is going to play a huge role in this game. Jags are going to have a hard time matching the motivational intensity of the Texans coming off the high last week, and being on top of the division. 27-0 what better motivation is there than that, when going up against a team who is about as evenly matched but on top of the division.

Jags need to come out swinging, with a perspective that this team is going to be play hell to bring down. We can't go into this game, with we are the New Sheriff mentality, we have to go into it as a team who could easily be 0-7 with much more to prove.
