I would almost call this game in Chicago a must win game just because of how horrible they looked against the Packers in their last primetime game.
I think the Texans match up well against the Bears. We do everything well that they struggle against. Call me crazy, but I think Foster will have a big game receiving the ball. Screens will eat their pass rush up and that will open up things down the field against their secondary.

The Bear's OL doesn't stand a chanceagainst our front 7 and Cutler will revert to form and proceed to singlehandedly lose the game for them. Instead of Custard pie, Watt will be eating a Cutler pie burrito. Wow that sounds gross.

If they don't have it together by December, where we can run the clock out on anybody (we play Tennessee, New England, Indy, & Minnesota in December.... a fairly good test), then I don't see a Super Bowl, or even an AFC Championship game for us.

It was nice to see Arian Foster find some big holes, it would have been nice to see what Ben Tate could have done in his relief. I think we controlled the L.O.S. but we didn't blow them off the ball & that's where we need to be.

Except the Bears & Forte are pretty good at running screens as well & we're not the best at sniff'n them out. We've been better this year than in the past, we shut down Ray Rice. The Bears & Forte is a different animal.

Just play like we play. Build a lead and shut them down as they try to come back. Jay Cutler is entirely to fragile to withstand the Texans pass rush and thrive. His confidence is based on his last pass. The SWATT Patrol will reduce that confidence. They don't run a spread offense like the Packers or Bills. The Bears are the Eagles with a good defense. They hurt bad defensive teams but good defensive teams can shut them down. There is no reason the Texans should fear them.

Completely agree with this. Another thing, we need to be stingy with the ball. Hold on to it for 6 minute drives & cap them off with a score.

The Texans are the stingiest in the league in that area. I'd like to see a comparison between the 39-5 record with 30+ rushing attempts and winning the battle of the clock. Wanna bet on a correlation?

That would be a fair conclusion. You don't run 30 plus times and have a low TOP

I guess I am the sole cheerleader for Oline (Jones over Caldwell for now). We beat Balti and pretty much handled Bills and you know who. Bears should be another step one way or the other. If Colts beat us it will not be their defense. If we beat Chicago & Pats we win out UNLESS Kubes decides to rest starters against Indy. 15-1. I am a bit more optimistic than you.

I'd bet the 39-5 record speaks more to how well Kubiak's vaunted turtle works at running out the clock with a lead than anything else, and yeh, that would likely translate to a gaudy TOP stat as well.

Think the stat is more of an end-based stat than a means-based stat however. Kubiak can be quite quick to start throwing it around in all situations from behind as well, we just arent that used to seeing it because we've only lost what? 3 meaningful games in the last calender year, & no I'm not going to count the tacks game at the end of last season or any other bumbling backup-laden baffoonery that went on once our seed was locked at the end of last season.

Foster will be rode hard this game. Hope he doesn't fumble. I doubt Grimes gets more than a play or two if that.

10-1 and we should only have Patriots to worry about IF Wade can keep duct taping the defense together. Colts last game could be interesting if coaches rest some starters.
Hopefully Tate will not only remain healthy but be productive allowing Foster some down time. Joseph will be rested in Tenn but I see him with groin issue throughout season. Sure wish I felt more optimistic about Brandon Harris.

Just my opinion, but Jonathan Joseph should not see the field till Minnesota, then only spot duty to see how he feels. I wouldn't have him do anything that might aggravate his groin until after our bye week in the play-offs.

The Ravens offense is not all that great. Texans already beat them once, and the Chargers shut them down pretty well this weekend. Flacco's only really had Ray Rice to throw to in short dump offs, and Torrey Smith. Just stop the bomb to Smith and hit Rice hard, and AFC Championship game should go like last game against the Ravens.

Except if the Ravens are as clawless as you suggest, they won't be in the AFC Championship game.

Baltimore's offense boils down to home field advantage - period. Through 11 games, they're scoring average is 16.5 points per game on the road and 36.8 points per game at home. That's almost a three TD difference.

If they go in as the #2 seed, they've got a very good chance of making it to the AFC Championship game. I'd very much prefer not to think about them getting the top seed and having to go to Baltimore in January again.

What is different now than when they played him a few weeks ago? I am not disagreeing with you but historically this season they have put him back on field as soon as possible. The defense is even weaker now than back then so it seems Wade will play him sooner than later. i would also think the coaches would desperately want a first week bye.

I was saying we should sit him a while back, make sure his groin heels & doesn't cause further issues that would jeopardize his ability to go later in the season. If it were me, he'd have played sparingly over the month of November to prepare him for the stretch we're about to go through.

We may be lucky that it is happening now, with a 10-1 record. Hopefully we can win 3 of the next 2, then get Jjo & Reed back in time to finish what we started (assuming we get Cody & Dobbins back in that time as well).

I agree that we should be able to afford a little rest to Jjo. However, I'm not sold on Kj being able to cover #1s just yet. He did a fine job against Calvin Johnson, but he wasn't "really" tested.

When teams get desperate, like Greenbay was when we played them, they were desperate & I think Rogers new that he was going to have to give his receivers an opportunity to make a play. They made those plays everytime against Kj. 5 for 5 or whatever it was. I think Kj is an excellent cover guy, but he doesn't challenge the ball well, mainly because he can't locate it.

That's something he has to improve on if he's going to play the #1 with consistency.

Detroit had a comfy lead throughout that game. There was no reason for Stafford to test Kj when the rest of the field was easy pickings.

I'm a Kj fan, but I'm not blind. He's not #1 worthy yet.
