    As are defensive stats and rankings when they’re largely amassed from beating up on the likes of Marcus Mariota, Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler...

    Vaunted defense has shown decent against 1 quality qb in 5 years.

    :ant:

    Tell u what, i’ll Leave u alone for a whole 2 days if u can tell me who that quality qb was.

    You want to play that game? Tell us which quality opponent our offense has dominated in the playoffs?

    Hell tell us which quality opponent our offense has dominated in the regular season.

    When was the offense clicking? I saw the Abracadabra play working well & the razzamatazz was productive. But to say the offense was "clicking" is a bit of an overstatement.

    Fact is the ready/not ready-to-play call should NOT have been up to the player OR the coach but the medical staff.
    Period.

    Neither our defense nor offense have performed well in the playoffs..unless u count the defense beating up on a 3rd string qb that’s actually not even in the league anymore. but to answer your 2nd part:


    NE 2017 = 30 pts - L cause the defense couldn’t stop brady
    SEA 2017 = 30 pts - L cause the defense couldn’t stop Wilson
    Philly 2018 = 30 pts - L cause the defense couldn’t stop Foles
    Colts 2018 = 30 pts - W, but almost lost, thank Frank, Lol
    Colts 2018 = 28 pts - L b/c the defense couldn’t stop Luck

    See a trend here?

    Texans have never been able to stop a good QB. I don't see it being any different this year and also if the game is close BOB making a poor decision will happen at some point in the game.

    What team has ever been able to stop a good QB, other than the Giants a couple times?

    Texans did it in 2015 against Brees....in the Superdome no less. Held NO to just 6 pts, Brees had no TD passes. Brian freakin Hoyer outplayed him that day. Behold, the 1 quality qb our defense actually held down in 5 years.

    Obviously asking them to hold these caliber of QBs to no TDs and 6 pts is unrealistic..but can we shoot for around 24 pts at least & not let the opponent ring all that up in the 1st damn qtr? At least make it tough for them to score that.

    Yeah. Do you for once?
    In case the meaning isn't clear to somebody else, let's don't trade for Smith.

    Yes.
    Make those suckers do their damned job.
    If they don't perform show them the same door that Gaine got shown.
    Period.

    I'd bet that's how you'd do it.

    Several of those games had the offense turning it over in Texas territory, special teams giving up TDs, and the defense forcing turnovers in opponent red areas

    So...Just to make sure i'm keeping up with your fuckery:

    when the defense shits the bed, its on the offense & ST for not scoring more points to help the defense overcome its own suckiness

    but when the offense shits the bed, its solely b/c the offense is horrible & no good & BoB & the playcalling etc?

    Ok, Got ya.

    Also don't forget that our defense can't stop top tier QBs because no one can stop top tier QBs, that was one of my favorites.

    If the offense turns it over in the Texans red zone, as Bill O'Briens system often does, that is not the defenses fault. Also has nothing to do with the defense if a kickoff is returned for a TD.

    The defense also gets credit when it causes a turnover in the opponent red zone
