    I dont think I saw anything the Texans cant do.

    We need to get more agressive on offense, Schaub needs to push it down the field more.

    We need more speed in the receiving corps.

    We need to study the defense the Ravens deployed against the Patriots tonight. If we need to add a body or two on defense to enable this, so be it.

    But I watched a team earn the Super Bowl that we thrashed earlier this year.

    I dont think we need to add much. What we need to improve upon is more in our heads than our phyisical abilities. Im looking forward to next year.

    Both teams had lb's that can play all 3 downs....they didn't shuttle 1 of them off and bring a cb in....or a safety down to cover......the defenses also had their **** together and were ready for the uptempo play....

    Some teams come out and play like they're on a mission in big games. We haven't shown we can do that at any point.

    But hey we beat the bears when we were both considered top tier teams.

    Didn't see the Ravens D running around looking lost & out of formation pre-snap.

    Texans beat Ravens, Patriots beat Texans, Ravens beat Patriots. I guess it's all about match ups and timing.

    Ray Lewis, who is possibly the slowest player on that defense (including their D-Line) not once was matched up one on one with a skill player.

    Yet the Texans can't seem to hide any of the LBs in coverage.

    What do you mean. Didn't the ravens have the pats beat last year minus a drop AND missed fg. Um we blew Homefield let alone a superbowl trip. Dumb dumb. By the way flacco can throw ball more than 25 yds downfield. By the way has harbaugh ever misses the playoffs. Dumb dumb

    I think we can reach a SB with Schaub after watching today's games. Brady, Manning, Manning, Brees, & Rodgers are all at home. It's CK7 and Flacco in the big game. It takes a good, solid team all the way around to make the SB.

    Also, it's easy to line up quickly after plays if you're just playing zone. That's why the hurry up didn't mess up the Ravens at all.

    In man to man, half the battle is figuring out who to cover, hence the Texans running around like chickens with their heads cut off.

    Pretty simple really.

    I think the Ravens offense was just more aggressive with the playcalls. They were throwing it down field. Their Red Zone plays were throws up high and they let the skill players make plays.

    Our offense doesn't ask our skill players to make plays. We rely on tricking the opponent. That works against bad defenses, but well coached teams can adjust. Ultimately, our offense needs to get more creative, and our defense needs to shut down elite offenses.

    the ravens offense was dead in the first half.

    then they abandoned the run and just lined flacco in the shotgun and spread them out with 4-5 WR sets and started picking their defense apart.
