Default How do we get better in our division?

Its as simple as upgrading the running game and either find a new kicker or bring some legit competition to rid Kris Brown of the yips

All five of our losses were close but they were still losses. We didn't have the running game to keep the Colts off the field late in the game the first time we played them. Then the second game we inexplicably abandoned the running game despite averaging 5 YPC in the 2nd half. If we can't drain the clock on the Colts then we're playing Peyton on his terms.

The Titans will require a pocket collapsing presence at NT to disrupt CJ and VY before they can get going with their option attack. This will be difficult because the Titans have arguably the best OL in the league.

The Jags... well both of those losses were surprising to me imo. Make sure Schaub stays in the game and we can stop MJD? haha

Thoughts?

We get better by getting bigger, tougher, and meaner on the O-line and D-line. We need to fix the interior O-line which will make our running game much better and give us a more physical presence. We also have need for a full time DT to play along side Okoye to give us a more physical presence against the run in the middle of the D-line. We need more of the tough guy mentality that Cushing and Pollard bring to the team and get away from this finesse team image.

Default Re: How do we get better in our division?

It's quite simple how we've been getting "pwned" in this divison.
Here's how each team has destroyed us over the years. See if you can
figure out the common thread.

Indy: Freeney, Mathis, and Brackett rape us while we're on
defense. Peyton, with his false counts, gets our defense to constantly
show its hand. Saturday and his linemates never get pushed back by our
D-line.

Tennessee: Their defensive line is 6-deep, and uses Chris Myers
as a doorway to Schaub. When we attempt to run the ball, they use
Myers as a battering ram smack dab into our backfield. Kevin Mawae's squad
never get pushed back by our D-line.

Jacksonville: Before this year, we could actually hang with
Jacksonville. Unless we get a certain element of our team fixed, FOR REAL
THIS TIME, they'll continue to beat us with their young O-line, which just
mauls our d-line back whenever they want a first down. The reason we
were swept by them this year, is because they now have credible receivers.
You give that linebacker they call a quarterback the ability to playaction, and
we're toast.

Here's the key to the common thread: "The shortest distance between the
two points of starting the game, to beating the Texans is....."

Each one of those teams, including Indy, have the ability to get physical
whenever they need to. We don't have such ability. Jacksonville ran
the ball down our throats to ice the game when they needed to. Joseph
Addai could run 10 yards for a touchdown when he needed to. Vince Young
could run for 1st downs whenever he needed them. As it stands now, and it has
always stood under the watch of Kubiak,we simply aren't physical when the
situation needs us to be. Most teams in the league are not aware of this,
and they get destroyed by the precision of our finesse game. Our divisional
rivals, however, are NOT fooled.

They simply smack our pretty little offense in the mouth, and we don't have
the bite to match our bark. This has to change. Kubiak's got one year to
do what he hasn't done in four...

Make us a PHYSICAL football team!

Default Re: How do we get better in our division?

I like this thread because it's a very important subject. A lot of us ignore the division games, but those games are VERY important.

In thinking back on the second Indy game, we kept Peyton on the bench for quite a bit in the first half. That's pretty much the only way to beat them. I think our strategy for Indy has to be to force turnovers and keep the ball out of their hands. I really think this could come down to Pollard and our secondary, with Cushing playing a MAJOR role.

I think our secondary still has holes, but I think it could be fixed. In my opinion, that's going to be the key to hanging in there with Indy.

As for the other two teams, well, we're better than they are, for the most part. We just don't think we are.

Jax kind of scares me a little, because Jack DelRio believes in big, physical football players. His linemen tend to be huge.

Tennessee doesn't bother me that much. I think once we get our secondary fixed, we'll be able to rein in Chris Johnson.
