    The two glaring reasons the Texans lost were Jacoby and Yates. And in my eyes, Yates gets a pass. He never played with a lead, he was under a lot of mental pressure playing in his first road playoff game, and he was playing against a good defense (although at times it did not look like it) at their house.

    Had Schaub been healthy, I think the Texans would have won by 10.

    No matter. Foster is a beast, as is AJ. Your defense is about as tough as they come. All-in-all, Houston stood tall today. I know losing sucks (I've been there three years straight and may be there again next Sunday), but for the Texans first-ever post-season, they made the rest of the NFL stand up and take notice.

    :bravo:

    That's pretty much my assessment.

    I think the Texans played better than the Ravens today but 4 turnovers is impossible to overcome. Good luck next week against the Pats and I hope Ed Reed is able to play.

    GL next week and I also hope Reed comes back healthy for you. The guy is an NFL legend.

    Close to a perfect assessment of the game. We were the much better defense today, if B-more fans can't admit it they're just as drunk as we are. With Schaub under center and no pressure we easily make big drives. Schaub is clutch without pressure (as are most qb's) and would have won by 11-13.

    Bottom line, we lost. We gave up the ball 4 times and lost. The L is the only stat that matters.

    I agree with you. It sux ball sax right now, but at least we made a game out of it after falling behind so far. Damn Jacoby Jones.

    Pretty chicken**** to be that rude. Daravenator has been making some good posts and is being very gracious in victory. Try to show some in defeat.

    I think the Ravens D should get some major props though. They held onto a 4 point lead for like...what more than half the game? Applause for that. Of course with Matt it would have been different but next year I guess. Just hope we don't run into Haynesworth who always falls on the guy and hurts him somehow.

    I'm pissed and not in the mood to be gracious. Now if you can't understand that, no one can.

    I have watched Reed since The U. Although he may have lost a step this season, and his tackling wasn't up to par due to his neck injury, he has a nose for the ball. He is a sure-fire first ballot lock for Canton. I hope he can come back healthy for next week more for his sake. I know he wants a ring, and although even winning next week is no guarantee, you certainly won't get one if you never make it to the SB.

    You are the one that needs to step off. You are out of line.

    Just man-up and apologize.
