I would rather not have the letdown game occur on national TV. I request that we hold off on the letdown game for a few weeks!

From someone that does weekly film review for the Star-ledger. What info can we pick up from the Titans game and possibly apply to the Jets.

Quote:
J.J. Watt. See that photo up there? The one of him rushing by Titans' lineman David Stewart? The Titans saw a lot of that. And if we could, we'd follow it up by showing a photo of Watt bringing QB Matt Hasselback to the ground or doing the same to RB Chris Johnson. You could have a whole slide show of Watt's highlights but the internet only has a finite amount of space for Watt's brilliance. The Texans' defensive end was excellent Sunday. He had five tackles, two sacks, three tackles for a loss and two QB hits. And somehow that doesn't do him justice. On arguably the best team in the NFL, Watt has been their best player. His first sack was just dominant as he set up Titans right guard Leroy Harris with a bull rush then used a swim move to get to the quarterback. He made a backside tackle on Johnson for a one-yard loss in the first quarter and then was in there for a six-yard loss a little later on. There's a reason why he's the leader in the clubhouse for the league's Defensive Player of the Year. After the Jets had to deal with Justin Smith last week, they somehow have to deal with an even better player Monday night.

Matt Schaub. The Texans QB was efficient and proficient against Tennessee. He finished 20-of-28 for 202 yards and two touchdowns and looked comfortable in the pocket all day with the offensive line providing superb protection. Schaub didn't have to make a lot of difficult throws but he was the catalyst for the offense on a day the running game wasn't its usual excellent self. He hit seven different receivers, and carved up the Titans' defense with short and intermediate passes. His only glaring miscue may have been in the fourth quarter when he overthrew Andre Johnson, who was wide open 30+ yards downfield after using a stop and go move that fooled the cornerback. But no one is perfect and Schaub won't get dinged for it here.

Kareem Jackson. Pretty good day for the Texans' corner. The most eye-popping thing he did was return an interception 63 yards for a touchdown -- one of two the Texans had on the day. But in addition to that, Jackson was also commendable, Jackson was targeted seven times and allowed three receptions for 33 yards -- good for a 17.9 QB rating against him.

UP-DOWNS

These players might get a rebuke

Brian Cushing and Bradie James. The Titans' running game and Chris Johnson had a rejuvenation Sunday as he ran for 141 yards on 25 carries. Cushing and James share some of the blame for that. They were repeatedly out of position or had trouble getting off of their blocks. Those errors get magnified when a running back with the speed and talent of Johnson is the one toting the ball.

The running game. At some point it's nitpicking when it's a 24-point victory, so here is that point. Arian Foster and the running game didn't quite live up to their expectations. The Texans rushed for 95 yards on 31 carries. Foster had 86 of those yards on 3.6 yards per carry. It wasn't a glaring issue but a microcosm of their bigger troubles. They've run the ball a league-best 148 times this year but have just a 3.7 ypc -- which is 22nd best in the NFL.

I was starting to get worried not seeing this thread earlier in the week. The Texans winning formula must have the following:

1 - Consistent and hard fought weekly practice
2 - Review of game tape to correct issues
3 - Teammates confidence in one another
4 - non stop motor for all 4 quarters

and the most important

5 - Weekly prediction thread coupled with "Must Win" thread.

5-0 is in the bag.

Pretty much what we already know as our weaknesses thus far. Losing Demeco and Winston.

The most important game in franchise history is (in my opinion) always the next one. Always. I think it would be very, very unfortunate for the Texans to stumble this week. When a top 5 team is presented with a weak and wounded opponent on national TV they take the opportunity to crush that opponent and tell everyone else in the NFL that they are here to "kick ass and chew bubble gum" so to speak.

You know why New England can lose a game they should have won early in the year and no one says "See, same old Patriots"? Because they've done it. They've won it all. Same can be said for a number of teams out there. When the Texans drop that game they should have won people do indeed say "Same old Texans" and they will until the Texans erase that perception with a new one. The last few years we've feasted on the bums and lost a lot of games to both good teams and trap teams. That doesn't get it done if you want to go where the Texans want to go.

Starting in 2012 I want to see the Texans change that. It's time to crush the teams we're supposed to crush and start taking some of these games against contenders. I think the Texans are capable of beating the Jets and then coming home and at least splitting with the Packers and Ravens. I really believe that they have the talent and coaching to enter the bye week 7-0. It just remains to be seen whether they have the luck and can stay focused through that stretch.

Because every won game on this streak is a first-in-franchise-history, every game is the most important game. That is all.
