I got to see the Falcons game this weekend and I will say this, hopefully the OL is up to snuff to stop Abraham because he is a monster! The Falcons are not too good against the run, but if Hall keeps his cool they are good against the pass. They are not as bad as the 0-3 record indicates, that's for sure.

I've been afraid that this would be a trap game because of the emotional let-down after playing so hard against the Colts. Also, because historically we never seem to beat the teams we're supposed to beat.

BUT. This is not the same old Texans and even though Schaub might not be looking for revenge, he's not going to take this team lightly. I think the injuries may also help give us a back-against-the-wall sort of feeling.

Uh-uh.

If we can't speak figuratively then there's no point in having discussions. Yes, you're trying to argue. You know what I said and and you know what I meant.... but....

/begin sarcasm

*in a monotone voice*

The Houston Texans are not at full strength and the Falcons need to take advantage of that.

/sarcasm over and back to the discussion...

As for morale, I don't know. I'm not in the locker room. I can only go by Texan Nation and Texan Nation is extremely upbeat overall therefore I'd like to think that that would spill over to the Texans locker room. I don't think morale is down. They hung with the Colts until the end without our starters. I would think it'd be skyhigh.

That's better, I'll agree with that. And given the respect that I've earned for you after reading your posts for however long now I'll bow out of this now. And I repeat, I was not trying to argue.

He's burned the secondary of two 2-1 teams thus far. I think you're underrating Joey Harrington. He's not great, but he's better than you think.

The Falcons have not really been dominated. They've played 3 competitive games and are very upset at how last week transpired. They practically allowed a game to slip through their fingers and it's been on their mind since the clock read zeros. There is alot of talent on this team; a servicable quarterback with a 90.6 QB Rating and 70% completion percentage, an improving WR in Roddy White, a perennial Pro Bowl TE in Alge Crumpler, RBs like Jerious Norwood and Warrick Dunn, All-Pro FB in Ovie Muhelli, star (but big mouthed) CB in Hall, a dangerous DE in Abraham, etc. We have talent.

I beleive what some old school coaches say about your record is who you are. If you are 0-3, than you are not that good. The Falcons 'could' have won last week, but they did what a 'not-so-good' team does, they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by one player melting down...

Sorry, that's what bad teams, with bad chemistry do...

Seriously guys why are we thinking this will game will be close? Is it the injury situation? It's ok to be without Ahman or Jacoby against an NFC South team. We did decent with Schaub running our system last week without those guys, Davis stepped up and Ron will be back. We will be more than fine.

And... Trap game??? Are you kidding me? Trap game???

Fellas... Has anyone been able to run on our team yet? Did our offense cease to move the ball in any of the last 3 games? We are fine guys, you just need to remember that this is still a strong AFC team against a weak NFC team.

I have no idea why any of you are talking like Atlanta has a chance. lol

I believe that's behind him. Following that 7 sack game against Jacksonville, coach Petrino called him out and demanded he get rid of the football. He did that last week and it led to success. I'm convinced he'll stick with that game plan this week too.

His TD:INT ratio is 1:1, but Schaub's isn't much better either.

You haven't been watching the NFL longer than 3 weeks have you? Even being a Texans' fan should serve you humble pie.

A 2-1 start is better than an 0-3 start, but any team can beat on any given Sunday [especially on the road]. Technically, the game shouldn't be close but I think many are convinced it will be (including myself).

The AFC South is undefeated playing teams outside its own division...

The Colts put a spanking on the Saints...

The Titans put a spanking on the Saints...

The Texans put a spanking on the Panthers...

The Jags put a spanking on the Falcons...

The Panthers beat the Falcons...

Haven't you taken that SAT's? You should have optimism in being a Falcons fan. There is no reason for any Texan fan to think of this gae as anything other than a victory however.

Yes, I have watched the NFL since I was like 7 years old. But a slam dunk is a slam dunk 99% of the time.

How did Jacksonville put a spanking on the Falcons? We lost by 6 points on the road.

You still do not understand how the NFL works. I'm a Falcons fan, and I understood that along time ago. It still holds true. Here's an example:

2006 Atlanta Falcons.
Win over the Pittsburgh Steelers
Win over the Cincinnati Bengals
Loss to the Detroit Lions
Loss to the Cleveland Browns

Do I have to show you the same irritating trend before Vick for you to understand teams can lose to whoever on any given Sunday and nothing in the NFL is a gimme?
