Default I have this foolish idea...

...that the defense is saving the good stuff for this, the second game against the Colts. That they're playing possum with all of the predictable pass rushing and soft zone coverage only to surprise Big Manning and sweep the Colts on the season.

I don't want to risk that kind of disappointment; someone disillusion me please.

I don't know about waiting to play defense til this game but it seems like Mario plays so much harder when Manning is the QB.

I doubt they are waiting until the Indy game to turn it up. What they are probably doing is waiting for the Indy game to show that they aren't as bad as the first six weeks of the season. They'll come out on fire.

If your saying the defense has something more to offer the Colts then in week 1, wow..... I would love to see that lol. Texans defense absolutely killed the Colts O line and Peyton in week 1. You can bet every single player on that O line has lookd at the tape and remembering what the Texans did to them. They were flat out embarrassed. They will have something in store for the defense as well.... (hopefully)

Is there any way we can just force the monkey to drag the boulder, and then everyone else can go play football?

Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Piere garcon, Anthony Gonzolez, and Donald Brown better show up this Monday night because that is the only way they will win this game. Brody is apparently in this Monday for tight end which I dont completely understand, but none the less its going to be an offensive shootout. If the O line can hold up and give Peyton some time its going to be a great game. Its in Indy and the team knows exactly what Houston did to them in week 1 so they will bring their A game.

What about Tamme? I thought he was the #2 TE?

I think they want to use Brody because of his blocking ability. We may see some 2 TE sets from them.

So did I? But now I am hearing mixed things... But what it sounds like is Tamme isnt starting.. I really dont understand why, but I guess nothing is totally 100% yet. Tamme has always done well for the Colts when taking Dallas Clarks place. Maybe its still an option, but from what it sounds like from Caldwell is Tamme wont be starting Monday.

Thats what I am thinking. But to put an inexprienced tight end in a game this important over Tamme boggles my mind.

Because they knew they could out score the opposing teams (at least three of them).

The offense seems to be running on all cylinders with the exception of a few sputtering times here and there and our QB has shown that one rare asset that EVERY team in the NFL needs......the ability to bring back their team from behind and put the game on your shoulders and get the W.

I am very happy Schaub is our QB.

**by the way, comment above about outscoring teams was sarcastic.....and a little dillusional**

I never shared this publicly, until now...

I, too, have wondered if it's a rope-a-dope type of move. Are we intentionally lulling the second half of the schedule (the tough guys) into thinking we're awful, and then we're going to switch gears and do things totally different.

You just don't see a big level of concern from the coaches. So is this all by design, to do just enough and to play "vanilla" so that you let your offense eek out a win vs. these first 6 or 7 opponents, and then you unleash your defense down the home stretch.

Because I know this defense could not have taken THAT big of a turn for the worse just by losing Dunta and Jacques. It's not logical to me. And you don't even hear the players acting like they're desperate.

I know this is a long shot, but maybe they are being held back on scheme and overall philosophy, on purpose, by the coaches JUST to totally make a switch at some point in time that they're waiting for. Like maybe MNF? Because we looked awful on MNF last year, which was also right after a bye week IIRC. Maybe this is a big ruse or something.

LOL. I'll buy that for a dollar :robocop:

Our Texans better save some of their TRICKS or treats for the Titans. JMO! They seem to be the team to worry about, not the Colts. With all the injurys the Colts have all the Texans have to do is put pressure on Manning, and that's a HUGE whatever, BUT, with Cush at MLB, and the D playing anything like they did in week 1, we should be able to handle this game. I'm worried about the meatballs though.

Do you even watch the Colts?

Eldridge has essentially started all year when they go two TE's. He is the 2nd TE behind Clark so your "inexperienced" description makes no sense. He has been experienced enough to play all year.

You keep talking about Tamme like he has all this experience. Tell me, which of his 6 career receptions was your favorite? But you will get your wish because Tamme will play extensively when they go two TE's.

You know what? As a Colts fan I have the same wish as you. I hope the Texans D plays as it did in week one as well.
