not sure if this was posted in another thread or not, but re: Brees's play in that fourth quarter, on the final drive, Payton said that Brees made all of the playcalls on that drive.

Sean Payton said Drew Brees called all of the plays at the line of scrimmage during the fourth quarter when the club went to the hurry-up O.

Sheeeeeeesssshhhhh!!!

I started this season in a wait-and-see mode with this squad, because

Go ahead. Enjoy every stat except a win.

Bump. Fun to read these after we win against a good team. Cmon Dexman, after all the bashing on Kubes you have done(deservingly so at times). Give him some credit for his 3rd quarter rallying session.

Agreed. I really hope this was a "statement" game for the team. As I said after the Saints game, I was hoping that the loss was more a reflection on the quality of the opponent than on the "same old Kubiak team" idea. I was skeptical, but *a bit* less so now.

I don't think I've ever seen a Texans defense pin its ears down and be so dominant in a close 4th quarter game situation. I don't remember ever seeing a Kubiak team playing with this intensity down the stretch, making big play after another in the clutch. It was wonderful to see and, I hope, a sign of things to come.

It took six years for this coach to get a win in the context I described at the beginning,
of this thread. The must be more. My main gripe with Kubiak has always been the lack
of results. Hopefully Sunday was he beginning of a new era, and not a fluke. I'll continue to update my sig through the end of the 12th game.

Keep in mind we started 4-2 last year, and pardon me if I continue to tap the pack
of Kool-Aid against my hand, and am slow to open it just yet.

Honestly, the Steelers don't look like contenders this year. Beat the Ravens or Raiders and I'll be impressed.

Right now, it's hard to call the Steelers a contending team. We're really in wait & see mode to see what these Steelers do.

Don't they have a history of slumping after a Super Bowl appearance?

Beat the Raiders... lol. I hear you, but don't believe what I'm hearing.


After 4 weeks, the NFL is starting to take shape and what I've seen so far is the Texans have played 1 really good team and lost.

Bright side.. I don't see another opponent as challenging as what the Saints offered during the regular season.

Dex's sig will fall apart this season. That's all but a lock. Our next true caliber test will likely be in the post season. Other than that, we either lose an "any given sunday" team or beat ourselves along the way, but at the 1/4 point... This should be a 10-12 win team.

What I would like to see is along the way, the Texans learn to play on the edge. This was a term that was discussed in the GB game yesterday, where the coaching staff wanted the Packers to put a full 4 quarters of "playing on the edge" together.

Texans biggest vise at this point is learning to play with a lead.

The Steelers are 2 and 2 and clearly on their way down.

Sorry, folks, yesterday's game is still not clear evidence that the Texans are for real. In fact, the Steelers should have been beaten in a blowout and weren't....

I was impressed with the defense and winning what was a flag filled, injury filled tough game.

But I agree, Raiders not so much, but Ravens, especially after I saw them last night....THAT would be some shit to beat them!!!

The Steelers are still the defending AFC Conference Champions. They are a quality organization and it was a solid win yesterday.

Last week a lot was said about beating the Steelers. Why have they been downgraded now? Because the Texans beat them?

The team is playing better than last year, but so far we are following the same pattern.

Win.... win... lose..... win...

Week 5 was an inexcusable loss at home where the Koolaide truck was turned over before it made it to Kirby.

The Giants weren't playing unusually well, they started the year 2-2 by the time they came into Houston already losing to two AFCS teams (Indy & Tacks).

They exploited weaknesses on both sides of the ball & wrote the blue-print for whup'n our ass that we saw for the rest of the year.

The Raiders are bringing the #1 rushing team into Houston... We have issues stopping the run.

IMO, this is going to be about our offense. Their D is nothing.. we should be able to get an early lead, a big one, take the running game out of the picture & pin our ears back.

If you're not starting the Houston Texans defense in your fantasy league, you're making a big, big mistake.

Rashard Mendenhall is no Run DMC. I think people are underestimating the Raiders this year because the ghost of Al Davis still haunts that team. They have a great run-game, but a poor defense, a lot like the Texans of 2010. They could be quite formidable this year, and given our mediocre run-d so far, beating them actually seems like a quality win to me.

The 2011 Steelers are nothing like the 2010 Steelers. Mendenhall can't get the run game going behind a dysfunctional o-line and Big Ben's getting slapped around like a drunk chick in a bathroom. Sure, in the preseason everyone thought they would be a top 4 team in the AFC, but now it looks like the Browns or Bengals will get a wild card spot over them. The Ravens are clearly the best team in the AFC North so far.

You hit the nail on the head DB It was great to be in the stadium yesterday to witness this game. Without the refs constant interference, this game was easily controlled by the Texans. The opponent was last years AFC representative in the Super Bowl, the arguments to that fact show a clear bias. Sorry guys... the rainbow loving, kool-aid drinkers are here to stay. Put a smile on your face, and get used to our new found success... I'm buying into the positive vibes

I think we are agreeing right?

Anyway, it will be up to our offense to get a lead & continue to build on it until they get completely away from the run game. I'm thinking 3 scores.

If we get a 17 point lead, they should start playing catch up.

If we can put together 10:55 drives, maybe sooner than that.
