    Tell me you weren't on your feet & dancing when he stripped that ball.

    He's come up huge for us these last three games, huge.

    He's the only other guy that I know that is playing almost as hard as Watt.

    I don't know if he was being roasted, they were just stating "facts" He was playing very aggressive & they took advantage of it.

    But he manned up & had a great game against Chicago, then another yesterday.

    Casey isn't a huge part of the game but he never lets himself get tackled, if he goes down it's because the defense earned it.

    I'm sorry, it doesn't mean there's not room for improvement, or areas that need to be addressed, but the idea that an 11-1 NFL team that's currently got a 5 game winning streak going only has 2 (or even 6) players who are playing hard is kind of ridiculous.

    Manning plays hard and is a winner/enough said.

    My point exactly. Everyone is going all out, not just Watt and Manning. I just pulled those guys out of the crowd. Why do you think Kubiak gave everyone a game ball after yesterday's game.

    and we're just 10-1 at the moment, not 11-1.
    Don't jinx it.

    Manning is a playmaker for sure, he might give the opponent a gift now and then but he will take it away.

    I think we are blessed to have the versatility and skills Quin and Manning bring to the Texans secondary.

    After too many years of Stevens, Earl and co to have legit players back there is AWESOME.

    Any chance they may get some pro bowl loving?

    I agree .... to think the rest of the defense (in particular) isnt playing hard is .... silly , hell its an insult to silly.


    Sure there is room for improvement but some people's criticisms dont come across as constructive , its more a personal opinion with some. Especially those who dont like Kubiak .... Damn his team is 10-1. With a 5-0 record on the road and has wins over division leaders Denver , Baltimore and Chicago , two of those in their place.

    Those same people will be screaming off with his head after the next loss .... and will still feel the same way after he brings this city a Lombardi Trophy.


    Like I said in another thread , I havent been this excited about a football season / team since the Oilers were knocking on the door back in the Earl Campbell Dan Pastorini days .... and thats a lotta years back.


    Enjoy this season , as teams like this dont come around all that often.

    Start trusting Schaub to throw? LOL - Schaub is on pace for 4150 yds (he was on pace for 4175 last season). That would be his 3rd 4000 yd season under Kubiak including leading the league with 4770 one year. I think Kubiak trusts Schaub to throw.

    3rd and 13, Kubiak: Draw
    3rd and 14, Kubiak: Draw
    3rd and 15, Kubiak: Draw
    3rd and 16, Kubiak: Screen

    Kubiak is so conservative that it's gonna come and bite us in the rear. He settled for a 50 yarder when we all know Graham is FAR from automatic in that range. He couldn't trust Schaub to get 5-7 more yards? Let's be honest here, when it's 3rd and long we all know he's calling the draw no matter what the field position is.

    And that is responsive to my post how?

    As to the punt, now for about the 4th or 5th time, Kubiak called a pass play (in fact the same pass play Casey caught the 2nd time) and Schaub looked at the D and audibled to a run.

    So let's be honest here, it is very presumptive to think what is run in a game is what was called.

    So you have one of the best defenses in the NFL .... Its 3rd and half a mile , the odds of gaining the 1st down are slim. Why not take a few yards , punt it away andlet your defense go to work and get the ball back in good field position ??

    Rather ... lets risk a turnover or worse because the defense knows they have to throw getting Schaub splattered on the turf and out come playoff time.

    Not to mention .... when it is a critical situation teams will know his tendancy to run draws and maybe play the run instead .... and they can take advantage of that. They dont show all their cards .... they have a few plays in the playbook that they only break out when they really need them (The Walter TD against the Bungles last season being a prime example) .... Why show what you dont have to giving your future opposition film to study on you.


    They are 10-1 .... Sure they have their warts but Gary's conservative third down playcalling is the least of our concerns.
    Right now , Im much more concerned with the rate at which the opposition is converting on 3rd and long as well as the number of big plays givin up in that situation.
