I think the notion that we held back against the Patriots is crazy. We just didn't play well or have good coaching in that game. We laid an egg.

Tom Brady is a magnificent man. With magnificent chin dimple. And magnificent hair. And manly Ugg boots.

I agree. We sucked in every aspect against the Pats & Packers. That said, I did feel as the Pats game progressed (regressed????) that Kubiak pulled back. The whole "live to fight another day" thing seemed to fit.

Here's what I think Kubiak's 2012 regular season goals are:
1) Get into the playoffs
2) Keep Schaub & Johnson healthy
3) Win each game
4) ...

Damn him for not putting that on my make-believe list!!!! heh

Point should be: Schaub & Johnson's health is more important than any win after the playoffs are clinched. Just my opinion.

I remember someone called in on the radio and suggested this as well, and for lack of a better description, absurd notion. There is no way the Texans held back.... Simply put, the Texans got their a$$es$ whooped and their heads handed to them.

Champ, was this radio feed or something in print? I haven't read nor seen that before. Just curious. Gotta link or anything? That's a very intriguing comment.

Exactly on point there TK! I can't get over how many no football playin' sack -0- **** teams are in the HFA position that the Texans are in.

I will preface it by saying that I usually agree with Kubiak in his conservative play calling. Play the odds.

As far as the explosive offense, I think there is a reason Kubes doesn't unleash it often, in fact, hardly ever, and it's the limitation of the QB. I think Schaub is a capable QB; I believe he can lead our team to a SB win, but he's not Tom Brady (as gay as he looks in that picture, not that there is anything wrong with it, he's one hell of a QB). I think Schaub would be much maligned like Tony Romo if he were left to throw 60 times every game.

P.S. I remember 2009 and the fact that Schaub led the league in passing yards.

I remember hearing a few things about it - here's one example:

Quote:
“This game was just another game for us,” linebacker Rob Ninkovich said. “It wasn’t the biggest game of the year for us, so I think we just prepared like we were playing another game
Quote:
“I know the team we play next week, it’s not the biggest game in their franchise’s history,” guard Logan Mankins said.
LINK

I just feel like rubbing someone's nose in it (no matter how factually accurate it may be) just may indicate your dwelling on last week a bit as opposed to focusing on next week.

I'm having my doubts.
I hear you DB, some people just don't want to believe we are that good, and having doubters is fine.

What I've seen since about Week 8 is not the same football team and it can't just be because of Cushing and various injuries. I think Kubiak is winning the one's we are supposed to, and against the more elite competition...meh.

We went spread offense on NE one time, and scored, then went back to running the ball. The horribly biased officiating on 3rd and longs, etc didn't help either. We just didn't look the same either way.

We've been vanilla since Buffalo in my opinion, with the exception of the Jags game where we opened up the offense to score more. We are a very dangerous team when we spread it out and I look to see that more in the playoffs, especially if we are going against someone with a high powered offense. We can do it too, we just don't do it as much, and I think Kubiak is more of a chess player.

If you were playing someone in a game that truly didn't mean anything as far as your standings go, but hyped it to be huge, what kind of a mind blow is that to the other team. So now an overly confident Brady comes in for the AFC Championship and an overconfident Rodgers goes to NO for the Super Bowl.

Check. Mate.
