    Only reason he's giving all that credit to Bennett/Dunta is cause they shut him down last year, especially Bennett

    He also tweeted that Cleveland had some good DBs at some point before their game against the Browns. Take it with a grain of a grain of salt.

    Just players trying to avoid giving another team bulletin board material.

    "I think JaMarcus Russell is a great QB and he's definately going to be a handful in our next game!!!"

    I can't remember a time where I saw Chad focused like he seemed to be in the interview.

    I think he was being kind with the corners, but looks like he didn't know Reeves is likely to get the start opposite Dunta.

    Game looks like it could be similar to last week in that people will be talking about the offenses, but the defenses will be were the game is won.

    X factor is how well the Texans defense keeps Benson in check. If he has a big game that doesn't bode well for the Texans.

    Again one thing is for sure we sure as hell can't come out like we did against Arizona and expect to win.

    Reporter: "Who's better, Ochocinco or Andre Johnson?"

    Ocho: "Well I lost my 'Johnson,' so I'll go with the other guy down in
    Houston. He's pretty damn good."

    X factor might be the effectiveness of the run game for both teams, but the great equalizer for us, is our special teams, the Bengals coverage teams BLOW.

    The Bengals allow 12.5 return average on Punts (30th Place), and 24.7 yards average on Kicks (23rd place).

    The Texans are first in Kickoff return average with 18.7, and 4th in Punt return allowed with 4.4 yards per punt.

    _________________________________________

    Texans average 25.7 yards per Kick Return, good for 5th place, and 6th in Punt Return averaging 12.5 yards per return.

    If this was the B/S forum I would be buying a Jones TD.

    If I remember correctly, or go watch NFL Gamerewind, Jacoby took
    one to the house against them last year which set the tone for
    the 35-3 ass kicking the Bengals took. He ran between two Bengals
    in an amazing punt return. I still don't know how he got thru those guys.

    Say what you want about the kid, the Texans' chances are much better
    with him running back punts. Last week, we don't get back into the game
    without Jacoby's field position-setting punt returns.

    Yup, I am excited to see what Davis and JOnes do against these coverage units.

    Yeah, I've been mentioning that very thing... No one seems to be talking about that match-up....

    Our ST vs. the Bengals "sorry ST"

    Houston, again.
    In Bungles land, that could be construed as a marriage proposal.:rake:

    Hey, why not a couple of TD's? The law of averages has to swing in our favor sooner or later, right? ;)

    Hearing Fred Bennett's name in the same sentence with good, is just strange.... :mcnugget:

    Between Quinn, Dunta, and Reeves, I doubt Bennett sees much
    of the field, if at all.

    Special teams will need to be extra special this week. We need the momentum shifts that a big play in special teams can cause to take the crowd out of the game.

    A positive turnover ratio and big plays will be the key to the Texans winning this week on the road against a tough Bengals team.

    Yeah, I was thinking he must not have been paying too much attention to the CB situation. The only way I want Fred to see the field, is from the sidelines.

    Their ST coverage may be lacking, but we also need to watch out for the trickery.

    They don't mind faking a punt from their own 30's
