So do I. ATL is in a tough spot in the NFC playoff race right now and they have to win. With them having a pretty good defense against a rookie for the first time, I'd have to favor them. I hope that i"m wrong and we kick ass!

Believer in the defense here. Plus, Matt Ryan is overrated.

Ain't no way the D is letting this game get away. Ain't no way Kubes is gonna sit on his thumb and rock back. It'll be a fairly conservative gameplan, giving Yates his shots, but an all out onslaught on D. Ryan might get broken. Badly.

I would not be surprised if the Texans lose, but I'm going with Houston.

I think the team concept will prevail and they pick up the slack left by a rookie QB.

I think homefield advantage will be there, and to be honest, I would not be surprised if ATL lets their guard down a little because we have a rookie QB.

Plus, the Falcons were TJ's team growing up, and his no. 13 is just daring fate. These are complete intangibles, but screw the curse. TJ is our shaman and will exorcise the demons!

Default Re: Atlanta vs Houston

Falcons are a quality opponent no doubt but they are not the Juggernaut some people make them out to be. I know I keep hearing some of the local radio guys harping on it being the toughest offense we have faced since New Orleans, and while that is technically accurate they don't measure up against the Saints. Over the course of the season so far the Saints have outscored Atlanta by over 100 points. The Falcons average 23.5 points per game, 21.8 on the road. Atlanta is about +30 in point differential right now, good but not great by any means.

Defensively their play against the pass is nothing special. Opposing QBs have a rating of around 85 and they only have 20 sacks as a team. Their best DB isn't suiting up.

We are about 3 point underdogs at home in this game, but there is a reason the Texans are one of the top 2 teams against the spread this season.
http://insider.espn.go.com/insider/b...s-even-week-13
(for those w/o insider we are 7-3-1 ATS with a large margin of victory usually)

Atlanta is playing some very good football right now but I am quietly optimistic about this game. (Not so quietly after this post I guess)

I see the Texans dropping this one. It's going to take at least a game for our young QB to get some wind beneath his wings.

I don't say the Texans lose because Yates screws the team with bad play. I just think, knowing Kubes - watching and listening to him this past week - that his game plan on offense will be too pedestrian until it's too late.

Truly, I hope I'm wrong. If Yates lights it up, then my suspicions about the kid were right all along.

If he doesn't then may the crows in the sky make nests within my gullet, and may they hover my grave until the dead inherit the earth. Amen.

Until then...go Googs!!!

Obviously you werent listening to him ..... They will do what they do. Thats run the ball and take their shots off of play action. Same as every week. The player doesnt change the scheme.

Do you not think Kubes sees, hears and reads the same things? I bet he does. I also think that his job security is low enough that he'll open it up some and show a wrinkle, here or there, designed just for Yates that will completely befuddle Atlanta's D. The rest of the season is Kubes' chance to put up or shut up. Go turtle, go home. Let it loose some, give 'em something to think about. Game plans aren't always a bout this weeks opponent. Kubes has his job to win or lose. I see him seizing the moment.

Default Re: Atlanta vs Houston

If our Oline was a little tougher I'd bet money we'd win this one. BUT, since they let us lose 2 QBs in 2 wks, and our running game pretty much stunk up Jacksonville, I'll have to go with Atl. DAMN, I hate do that, but, that's my take on it. I hope I'm wrong, and that TJ and AJ become the hottest combo in the NFL. I just feel if we rely on our running game to put points on the board we will lose. In Kubiak I DO NOT TRUST!! Sorry, he will call a super conservative game and it will sink us!! JMO!
