    1-Jacoby Jones game changing muff in the 1st quarter. That 1 play cost the Texans momentum after they held the Ravens to a 3 and out.

    2-TJ Yates. He should have been pulled and Delhomme put in in the 2nd half. 4 int and a couple more that should have been picked. I'm sorry but the rookie was over matched looking at the Ravens 3-4 defense.

    3-Kubiak-Stubborn to a fault. Tj is my guy. Oh Yeah. Then why did you sign Delhomme and Garcia. Moral support? He is a dumbass head coach that is in over his head and always gets out coached when it matters.

    I am proud of the Texans. They played their ass off. It is ashamed that Kubiak will be given an extension though. He continues to bumble his way through big games. He was only on this stage today because of Wade. Sorry TK but your sunshine for Kubiak is overshadowing your good judgement of football. He can't make big time decisions. Our defense played lights out and was let down by Kubiak. The Ravens didn't beat the Texans. The Texans were beat by bad decisions by their own coach.

    exactly what did we expect from a rookie. i dont blame tj, hes a 5th rd pick and his inexperience showed. delhomme should have been getting prepared since the reg. season. i blame the person that refused to put him out there. his experience would have given us the best shot in this game. :kubepalm:

    I don't blame TJ. Its a tough defense, and he was put in tough positions by other people on offense not stepping up and helping him out. Arian and AJ were the only ones on offense (besides the Oline) that played at a pro-level imo. While I'll need rewatch the game to confirm it to myself, I feel only 2 of his picks at most were his fault and the other ones were just products of the sitution

    I blame that idiotic play call on first down with 1:52 left in the fourth. Why go for the bomb there? We were moving the ball well and had plenty of time to score.

    If we wanted to guarantee a loss, putting in a league washout backup retiree who's been on the roster about a month into a road game against a veteran defense sounds like a good plan.

    In case we forget WHY Delhomme was out of football, lets remember his famous 5 INT playoff performance. No thanks. I will take TJ every time and next year he will grow into a quality backup while Jake goes back to his farm.

    why are people so certain delhomme would have been better?

    yates got us here

    yates has more chemistry with the players

    he knows the playbook more

    he's a rookie on the road against a really good defense. it is what it is.

    He didn't look too washed up when Kubiak threw him to the dogs with our 2nd and 3rd stringers against the Titans. Yates was way over matched today and it didn't take any kind of genius to recognize it.

    andre is a beast but was slow as molasses out there, and as much as i love the kid, we were in trouble with a 5th round 3rd string rookie trying to take on the baltimore defense. yates shouldnt have been in there, and threw 7 interceptions, but that's the cards we were dealt. caldwell being in hurt a couple drives, and mario very well makes a great defense today into one that forces a turnover or few.

    even still, this is a game we dominated and stood to drive home without the jacoby fumble and complete ineptitude returning punts (and a black hole at receiver).

    Bckey. What?

    Forget about everything that happened in the first three qtrs. unless we're blown out the way the Broncos were yesterday, it don't matter.

    We were in the game until the last snap, so all the miscues, the turnovers, the negative plays were overcame & accounted for by positive plays, good football & sound decisions.

    We had two opportunities to tie the game in the end. Several opportunities to take the lead as well. We had some execution problems in that 4th qtr, some need to step it up a notch problems that did not happen on the offensive side of the ball.

    Blame, I blame youth & a lack of talent. We've been putting so much tAlent on the defensive side of the ball it should be no surprise what happened today.

    Where was OD? Where was Dressen?

    If you were expecting Delhomme to come in & save the day, you need another shot of koolaide.

    There are 2 reasons...... We have an dummy returning punts for us who does nothing for us consistently in the passing game. Some one remind me against why we gave this clown 10 mil?


    And number 2...... We went into battle with a rookie who made typical rookie mistakes. The worst of them was the INT to Ed Reed in the 4th. You have to understand the situation there and he just isn't ready. I don't fault him because he's done a great job to get us there. Its just one of those things. I'm still proud as hell of the kid for battling for us.

    Dude I totally agree. Delhomme at home against a piss poor titans defense is not Del-nome-name against B-more on the road.

    Just inexperience and Jacoby. Honestly if Jacoby just recovers that and we make 3 points off the drive we don't kill momentum and probably go on to win that game.

    Yep.

    And don't forget Rackers missing a FG that gave the Ravens the ball on the 40.

    Our special teams play pretty much screwed us from top to bottom.
