Default Is The Falcons Game a Trap Game?

I think this weeks game will be the key to a winning season.If a battered Texans can get a road win at Atlanta . I can honestly say the Texans have turned a corner and can be a Contender for the 07 season.
I wish the Texans have the depth to install a plug and play system and I do think that is what Coack Kubiak and Rick Smith are working towards .

Default Re: Is The Falcon's a Trap Game?

no.

We have good coaches. We lost last weekend. We are beat up as a team. We want to win every game we can. The starters playing (Davis, Walter, Dayne/Gado, etc) aren't going to be relaxed- they are going play as best they can. In the end they want to keep their job. We have fairly young defense that is playing with a chip on their shoulder and don't want to be scored on.

They are going to go out there and play with their heart. Schaub doesn't care if it's Atlanta or San Diego- he wants a W.

I pray nobody else gets injured!

Default Re: Is The Falcon's a Trap Game?

How can you even ask this question???

NO!

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 beat the Falcons...

The Panthers beat the Falcons...

Default Re: Is The Falcon's a Trap Game?

It's not a trap game because I am not sure that the Texans with many key injuries is so much better than ATL that it is a trap. The Falcons probably see it as a get healthy game.

The Texans barely knew who they were before the season started, and now who knows who they are?

It's a test of what the banged up Texans can do. Can they go on the road, have even a decent running game and perform consistently for four quarters?

They've been able to have some big plays on offense and special teams, but with a number of their playmakers out, can they continue to do this same?

And which defense is going to show up? Hopefully not one that spots a bunch of points early in the game.

Harrington actually had a semi-adequate game dinking and dunking down the field last week and ATL should have won that game. Dink/dunkers scare me with this defense.

Default Re: Is The Falcon's a Trap Game?

Nah.

If we had beaten the Colts, then I might be worried, but coming off of a tough loss may cause the team to take out some of that negativity on the Falcons (the Falcons will come with that same mentality). Don't let the injuries fool you - we still ran with the Colts and they're a much better team than Atlanta.

There are no gimmes in the NFL, but the Texans should be just fine.

Default Re: Is The Falcon's a Trap Game?

A trap game is usually where a team is looking past its opponent. I don't think the Texans are looking past the Falcons to the Dolphins in week 5. The problem may be coming out a little flat after the effort against the Colts. Add to that the Falcons desperation for a win, and this should be a tough road game.

If the Texans can withstand the early emotion by the Falcons, they should be in good shape. Atlanta has a team that probably doesn't believe in their QB, and may not believe in their coach. Much is new and few things are working for them. The Texans need to play steady, take the crowd out of the game, and give the Falcons a reason to doubt themselves.

No, its the Texans. Any win would be a step in the right direction.

I'm confused on the highlighted area. Are you upset over our depth or about the system because Smith was interviewed before the game on Sunday and when asked about AJ he said that their system is built on being able to do the same thing every game and that the goal is to be able to take the new "X" receiver and put him in the system and have the system work like clockwork. Now talent obviously makes a difference but that is almost to a point what he said...a plug in system. I think he was saying that it should be functional now.

Not a trap game then but definitely a game we could find ourselves losing. So far this year Kubiak & Co. have been able to keep the team focused for every game. We haven't played one game where we didn't show up and I like that. This is the first game of the season following an emotional high and a let down. How will they respond to losing against Indy.

I'm not worried about the injuries. The reserves will be ready and do their jobs. I'm worried about the guys not being ready to play at kickoff next week. Young teams that are new to winning are hard to keep focused.

Mhm, I totally agree. Matt Schaub's lying when he says this is just like any other game.

Yeah, and do you think that the guys in that locker room are totally sick of folks making fun of them for trading Schaub? I mean, even if they agree with it, the best way to get people to STFU some is to bust the Texans in the mouth at home.

The Atlanta Offensive line cannot give him ANY time to throw anything but quick stuff outside and over the middle.

If they get their arms up quick enough maybe the DL can get some knock downs.
