This is why so many of us are commenting so critically; it is time for this team to step up and take command of their destiny. We should enter every game with a confidence that we will win.
bb, you & me are usually on the same page, but if you put our offense in the same league with the Saints man you are truly delusional.

I've been listening to 790 all morning & they summed it up pretty good. When Brees got the ball at the end of the game, New Orleans breathed a sigh of relief. When Schaub got the ball, we clinched our teeth, sat on the edge of our chair & prayed we didn't see a pick 6.

& it turned out not as bad, but pretty much along the lines we thought it would.

I'm not going to say Schaub choked, I won't put a whole game on any one player (coach maybe, but not one player)... but let's just say Schaub had trouble swallowing. That's who he is & that's what our offense is. As Schaub goes..... so does our offense.

If Arian comes back & not have any more hammy trouble for the rest of the year, that changes everything. We're still not on the Saints level, but we're much closer.

No worries mate! I don't think I said our O was in the same league as Saints but we should have won that game. Any of the redzones should have been points. If Foster and Tater Salad are healthy (especially if Ward can return) and we have all our guns, I ain't afraid of anyone. I posted before the season we would beat NO and we could have. I will be interested to see them in a rematch after the regular season.

We have done very well scoring last couple years so it is not a fluke. I expect the D to make a huge turn around.

Read your post again and could not leave it alone. lol.

Wouldn't you agree the bolded is based on the history of both teams? I think Schaub will be very good this season and we will develop the confidence that Saints fans have in Brees. Not saying Matt is better than Drew but he does not have to be to take us to the Super Bowl.

I'll say the same thing about Matt that I would say about any 7 year vets... I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for him to develop any more.

Now, it is possible since he hasn't been in any games that truly mattered, he may grow some, & that would be great, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Our best bet, is to make sure Foster stays healthy the rest of the year.

I dont get all worked up with the "statements" and "must wins" and "proving you can beat good teams on the road" blah balah balooh...

What does the statement mean if the Texans beat the Steelers and finish 7-9 as the Steelers go 11-5? Or what would it state if the Texans get their asses handed to them but go 11-5, beat the Steelers in the playoffs and make it to the AFC title game?

The true statement is how your season goes in a whole... Apparently the Texans made a statement to the Colts and this division week 1 last year...

I agree! If we're truly trying to turn the team around and get over the hump, then we have to find ways to close games. Compare the fins game to Aints game. I thought we played half a game in miami, and looked like crap. We played tough, and played well last sunday, but in the 4th, D just let up far too much. ( I mean c'mon, the same friggin play on 2 pt conversion? KJack is killin me) If we can continue in the same progression.... perhaps this week will be one in which we can play at our best level for 4 quarters! If so, we should walk away with a big win.

And then.... there's the raiders next week. Last time we played, it was a joke, this time I have a feeling it'll be tough. But for now, I'm dealing solely with the steelers. Smart plays by Schaub are extra critical- can't have Troy picking us off, and D has to get Big ***** no helmet while riding Ben on the ground.

KJax wears #25.. JJo wears #24

The guy who got burnt on both of those conversions was wearing #24

Why?

Brees was picked off twice & still won. Ben was probably picked off twice & won...

An INT is not the end of the world, how you react after, that's what makes champions.
