I think that the Jaguars and the NFL in general still thinks about Houston's D like a "average" defense ans they are not giveing it the credit that it deserve. Leftwitch gonna be intercepted 2 times at least, and David and Andre gonna have a great game.

Texans 30
Jaguars 14

Heh...notwithstanding the great 4-INT performance against the Tacks, I WISH this defense were "average," at least in terms of stats. Then again, if you look at the total defense stats for the league right now, some of the very best defenses are on the very worst teams:

Washington #1
Tampa Bay #3
Miami #4
Buffalo #5


The Texans D would be in much better shape if it could knock down that awful 3rd-down conversion percentage. We're 32nd in the league there. Some consolation: the Jag-Wires are 30th and the Nags are 31st.

This is one of those times that the raw overall stat doesn't adequately reflect the recent team performance. We got torched on 3rd downs the 1st two games so we have been digging out of a hole for the full season stats. But looking more recently--Oakland 38% (right at middle of the league), Minnesota 54% (but then again they have torched everyone for 50+%) and Titans 31% (well above average). Basically they are moving in the right direction.

Jags got 6 sacks against KC should have been 7, and 1 against the Colts should have been 2. With 16 sacks already this season Carr is in route to get sacked 3 times Sunday? :hehe:

Who cares? By that logic, the Jags offense has been digging out of a whole from the first three games. Over the last 4 games I bet our offense is top 5 in the league.

Any bone head can see we got the more high powered offense and with D. Davis finally healthy for the first time in 3 weeks yall had better watch out !!! And dont even bring up stats to me cause we all know they dont mean sh** !!!!!

I'm glad Davis is playing. What defense doesn't like to recover a few fumbles?

My first official prediction of the season...

Texans 35
Jags 28

Doube D comes back big after the injury with 2tds and AJ, Gaff, and Armstrong all have a big day. Maybe I will throw in a defensive td too.

Wink

Jaguars 23
Texans 20

It may turn out to be a shootout in Houston, but I have a feeling it will be a headbanger. Our two teams will be aiming to win this one because of the implications so I see a close finish.

Isn't it great to have two young teams on the rise in the AFC South?

Here's to a great game.

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.

Ummm, that anything can happen? This is the NFL we all know and love.
