Vote for your favorite play.
(pretend I said D-Rob)
The final kneel-down B)
The 77 yarder to Andre is, by far, the biggest play tattooed into my brain. That play stifled all of the "Schaub doesn't have the deep ball" talk. I just hope the deep ball becomes a regular part of our game.
I liked N D jumping over the blockers to get our last sack of the game. He looked like he would not be denied.
That was a fun play to watch. I also liked Kris Brown chasing down the KC kick returner.
That sack was great. N.D. 'Praying Mantis' Kalu.
My father said he looked like a squirrel coming off a roof.
Anyway...Im going with the TD throw. Just cause its always awesome to see AJ take one to the house from a long distance.
I voted the Mario TD. Because it was like this giant relief. He hustles so much. He's working so hard and to see it rewarded like that was great. On that play, he had pushed the tackle into Huard's face and then turned and ran to the play. That's some hustle.
That could be the turning point for him and this whole d-line.
Crud, should have been a poll option :bangshead:
I voted Mario for the same reasons. Although I like the kneel-down answer too.
I loved seeing that 77 yd pass to AJ, and that's what we want to see a lot of. I voted for Mario's TD though, because you're probably not going to see a DL run for a TD to often. Besides, it's was great to see Mario get the recognition he got for a great game.
PS: You're not going to see TJ intercept too many passes at the line of scrimmage either.....
I think it's awesome that there were so many plays that could've been on the poll.
I voted for the pass to Dre because it was a beautiful deep pass that hit him in stride. It was a sight for sore eyes.
Crud, that one, too.
I agree that Mario's play was big but we all knew deep down that he would come around.
Schaub on the other hand, reagardless of how we twisted his knowledge of the WCO from the college days into how it would come into play as our starter, we still had that fear in the back of our minds that he just might not make it as a starter at the pro level. Folks here can argue all you want on your stance on Schaub before we ever saw him in preseason action but everyone, not only in Houston but nation wide, had their worries/doubts. This play not only vindicated Schaub but also took our offense from one dimensional to a triple threat. You play us deep we'll eat you with the run, you stack 8 in the box we'll eat you for mid-range passes, you play us cover 2 we'll force the deep ball down your throat. I firmly believe that play alone gave us an identity and established us as an NFL calibre offense for the first time in franchise history.
Sunday is so friggin far away! Go Texans!
There were so many besides the ones mentioned, including all the hits.
But I vote for the one after Mario's TD, where Demeco, as usual, jump on top of Mario, only he kinda ducks, and Demeco jump right over his head.
Perfect ending to a celebration!
Edit: Err, it's the nonplay after the play!
Every running play during the 15 play, 10:26 drive during the 3rd/4th quarters.
I voted for the AJ touchdown pass. We haven't seen a long TD pass like that since the Miami game in our second season.
A close second is one of Mario's sacks where he blew threw three KC offenisve linemen.
TJ's pick and Mario's fumble return are probably tied for 3rd favorite.
Longest reception of his 5 year career and most receiving yards, as well.
While I really enjoyed the Mario TD, the Schaub/AJ connection was so beautiful and a perfect burn on coverage that I think it's a sign of the many good things to come.
Actually, I thought the best play of that drive was the initial 3rd down conversion, where Schaub beats the blitz with a pass over the middle to Daniels.
(14:20) M.Schaub pass short middle to O.Daniels to HST 45 for 14 yards (T.Brackenridge)
The defense has just held the Chiefs to a FG after a long drive, and needed a rest. That conversion was huge. Schaub went 4-4 for 38 yards on that drive and really put the Chiefs defense on their heels.
Yeah, we've talked about the running game on that drive, but the initial part of it was Schaub and that conversion was huge.
