Unless my math is wrong, I think we still win.
I believe my post included the word ratio, and also referenced the realistic possibility we will not have as many possessions in the Minnesota game. (That means I don't expect us to have the opportunity to kick 5 field goals if the offense plays like it did against the Colts).

For example, two field goals and one TD would would be a big improvement over my 5 to 1 ratio, yet still would only get us a tie with your 13 points (which for the life of me I don't understand how you came up with as opposed to 14). This would necessitate overtime which would increase the chance of injury, and require additional physical and mental exertion on the part of our boys in Deep Steel Blue and that would be bad.

Any other questions?

Meh... I'm, "worried" about every game because well, you know, that whole "any given Sunday" thing. That said, I think that if the Texans can find a way to *ahem* sorta hold AD in check (meaning less than 200 yards rushing) the Texans should win. Ponder as a passer does not scare me at all.

P.S. If Jared Allen takes out Schaub's knee I will have to be restrained from bum-rushing the field and taking out Jared Allen's knee....

Ponder as a play action running QB scares me though. We struggle against those mobile QBs.

It is quite possible that the game plan called for him to do certain things.
The same way Kubiak has been saying about Barwin doing his job.

IMO, it's all been about some guys holding the fort for another guy to make play.
If you keep looking for a certain guy to make play other than Watt, you would be dissapointed.

That's not how a defense works.

The fact that Jj Watt is the only Texan making plays is a problem.


Wade wanted to make sure that our end man stay home to guard against the play action pass.

He (Mercilus or Barwin) needed to make sure not to buy the play fake.
They would not allow Luck to roll-out.
They made sure there's no reverse.
At times they need to bump the TE or the FB, not allowing a free relase.

Basically, they were asked to contain the edges, unless they dropped into coverage or the D-call was for them to pass rush.

Yeah, there were definitely game-planning for Luck there.

I can't complain about Merciless right now. He looks better than Reed and Barwin combined.

OLB is a concern for me. They just haven't been good enough IMO. You have Watt playing the way he is, you should have the most dominant defensive front in the league hands down. Need other guys to step up to make that happen.

The Texans are tied for 2nd in sacks 1 back of 1st place. Just sayin'

That is with a lot of teams taking a quick passing game approach.
