    Week 13, the Atlanta Falcons come to Houston. If you were a player, would you consider this "Just another game"?

    Hopefully by then they will have a playoff spot locked in, and it will be just another game.

    Atlanta has a great offense, do not underestimate them.

    I think he was angling more towards DRob than anyone taking them lightly. They had a 13-3 record last year. We've only had 15 wins in the last two seasons to go with 17 losses.

    I'm guessing this is the Dunta angle as well... I don't understand why Texans players would really care that they're playing against Dunta two years after the fact...

    Leach and Pollard both play at Baltimore and those two are less than a year removed and seemed more important in the locker-room than Dunta...

    Honestly, I'm really concered how the players are going to feel week 1 with Orlabsheskimisky on the opposing sideline ;)

    None of this matters... Non-story/factor...

    If it is the Dunta angle, yeah it's just another game. And Dunta on AJ? No where in the same league. I will almost feel sorry for "pay me".

    Oh, I hope DRob gets on an egotrip and says he can cover AJ 1-on-1. AJ could have a career day in an already very dinstinguished career.

    Though TK hasn't popped back in to follow up I took it more in the vein of what DeMeco said before the Cowboys regular season game last year and the way that worked out. Just guessing here, but that's my :twocents:

    Why wouldn't it be? honestly, NFC games are the least important games regarding tiebreakers, so if we had pick which game to lose, I'd be okay with this one.

    Dunta wasn't as polarizing a figure here for me to count this as a big game. He was a solid CB. Not that he wasn't a good player, he was feisty and seemed to be a good leader here but...I bet the game since it is at Houston means more to him than anyone else. Ex-players always seem to play big against their ex-teams.

    they have a great offense and a great defense...not sure what you mean by, "just another game?"
