Default Baltimore Ravens

As stout as the Vikes D is its not like it get any easier next week. Lewis and the Ravens D are fast and aggressive and will behead whichever QB starts next week, I hope the home field provides some spark or it could get ugly!

Their high pressure 3-4 is about the worst matchup the Texans could have. This is a real gut check for the o-line and the QB.

I wonder if someone besides Sage and an injured Schuab will be on the active roster this time.

I don't expect the home crowd to be too enthusiastic either. Expect ho hum cheering and booing once the going gets rough, no matter the QB.

Default Re: Baltimore Ravens

Yeah we are pretty much screwed

the only thing we can do now is let sage start the game and let him gun sling it no more short passes and screens and slants straight Cruise Missile to AJ in Double Cov all day long and hope for the best ............. maybe if we can score 40 points on them we can win


or better yet lets just follow the same game plan the colts used 2 weeks ago aganist balty

This is a must win game for us, considering Jags are playing the lions we need to stay with them then hopefully beat them when the time comes.

Flacco is a very capable man until someone pulls down his pants and proves otherwise.

We are possibly in for a very ugly game.

Default Re: Baltimore Ravens

I expect the Ravens 3-4 defense to confuse whichever QB is out there. I expect that same defense to physically dominate or even intimidate many of the Texans offensive players. I don't expect the Texans defense to then step up and carry the team.

I expect it to be an ugly loss for the Texans for those reasons.

We would lose miserably to the Browns right now. They have a better defense than most people realize, and our defense would be just the tonic they need to put up 40.

We're at home, so we have a better chance against BAL, but our best hope is to get after the young QB. If that doesn't happen, we're probably screwed.

Right now we are 3-5, the way I'm seeing it is we are 3-8 before meeting the Jaguars next, and then it won't matter. I'm not very confident about this team beating anyone except for the likes of Lions and Bengals.

I agree with you but I do not think in any way we would get KILLED by the Browns, we always beat the browns first off and also while we might have five losses we have only got killed once. I think a game against the browns could go either way very easily.

What? Taken from Houstontexans.com -

Quote:
The Texans and Browns will face off for the sixth time this season. Houston has played Cleveland more than any non-AFC South opponent. Cleveland leads the series, 3-2.
That doesn't seem like "We always beat the Browns" to me. The biggest issue to me is that our QBs are really turnover prone. Both of them. Against teams like the Bengals at home sure we can look good. But we are a mediocre team that is not going to be consistent at all. The kneejerk reaction to yesterday has me thinking the Texans will go 3-8 and then maybe 5-11 to end the season. I am hoping I am wrong, but my dreams of 9-7 are gone for good.

Well, it's been a while, fellas! Ever since good ol' Ike blew through! But finally the Ravens and the Texans are ready to play football!

Personally, I wish we still had the bye this week, but you can't always get what you want. The Ravens first MNF game in their history was scheduled for Monday, Septmber 17, 2001. But that game was postponed due to 9/11. Maybe we're bad luck!

No matter. You gotta play 'em as they come. Here's looking towards a hard-fought game. One suggestion: tell your HC NOT to run the ball. Why Romeo couldn't figure that one out is beyond me!
