Default Don't look past the Raiders!!!!

Talk about a trick game. The Texans have a chance to contine building thier confidence, but the Jokeland Faiders loom.

The Texans are on a 4 game winning streak going for 5 a team record, and have just won two of the arguably most important games of the franchise. Emotions are riding high, hopefully Kubes can keep things in perspective and keep everyone from looking past Oakland.

This game in a way is just as important as the others this year because the Texans need to beat a team that they are obviousley better than, after beating teams that were favored over the Texans.

I know they can do it, but with success comes expectations!!!! (And stress!!!)

GO TEXANS!!!!!

Default Re: Don't look past the Raiders!!!!

I can see where this game can easily be overlooked and the Texans coming out flat. Hopefully they take care of the Raiders early and decisively. But, when you're winning 4 straight you'd think that your practice habits and intensity would be at an all time high. Let's keep the streak going!

This is a easy win for the Texans if Schaub doesn't throw towards Aso, hell, Schaub should not even look towards Aso. Besides him, Texans really don't got much to worry about, I expect a blow out, and yeah, as a Raiders fan I am saying this

They won't look past the Raiders. It wasn't that long ago other teams were looking past the Texans. I don't see them falling into that trap.

Default Re: Don't look past the Raiders!!!!

The Raiders just lost some of thier coaches to the Vols with Kiffin. That should add to the confusion for Cable.

I'm no Raiders fan, but its sad to see a once proud orginization in shambles.

Welcome aboard.

Tell me, what is the deal with the raider-fans forum? I tried to get an account registered but apparently I can't post or anything?

Is Al Davis running that forum personally?

Default Re: Don't look past the Raiders!!!!

The Lions game showed us that we can beat a team we're supposed to beat, but that we can still easily lose that game.

The Bengals game proved we can beat a team we're supposed to beat handily.

The Titans game proved we can beat a team that is hands down better than us.

This game against Oakland should be very telling of where we are as a program.
-If we lose (depending on circumstances) it tells me that the team is (i) still young and/or (ii) coaching isn't there (yet) to keep the players focused and in control.
-If we win (depending on circumstances) it tells me that the team is (i) maturing and/or (ii) coaching is there to keep the players in check and focused. or a 3rd option that we're simply better and played better.

No doubt AJ will prove to be a tough challenge for Aso, but Schaub has a tendency to under throw the ball sometimes, and with someone like Aso guarding AJ, he'd easily take advantage of those opportunities .

No clue, I stopped going there for well over a week now, Im still a Raider, but I no longer blindly support the team as long as Davis is in control of the franchise.

i live in oakland, and have seen most of their games this year.

the texans can overlook them, play chester pitts at quarterback, and still win by two touchdowns. aside from asamougha, mcfadden is the only guy to fear on that team, and cable gives him backup reps.

I agree with just about everything you said with the exception of the Titans bieng hands down better than the Texans. I think the Titans are slightly better than the Texans because thier defense has the edge, but I think we're close the D just needs just a little more talent and the play calling from the last few weeks all year long.

I've been wondering about this. Do you think it's Cable not trusting the O-line that he coached to not break the Raiders two 50 million dollar toys? What about their defense? I only got to watch Oakland vs San Diego @SD and that was about on par with the beatdown the Texans got served @PIT, so I'm not well informed.

Also, I don't know how you guys have lived through Al Davis dipping slowly into the depths of insanity, but it has been quite fun watching from afar.

Well if the Texans lose this game, the ony thing we'll have to complain about is coaching. Should be a nice change for the board.

Also, have the Texans ever really earned the right to overlook any team?

No, and they know that. The Texans will be playing for something in this game and that something is a shot at their first winning record in franchise history. I just can't believe that thought is lost on any of these players, especially guys like Dre that have been around a while and have endured so much losing. I expect them to be well prepared and ready to execute the game plan...and win.
