    What's up Texans fans? Thought our second half football was bad againist the 49ers? Just wait for Bills backup QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who touched us in a come from behind as backup for the Rams some years ago. How could anyone forget about that game?

    I prefer to remember him as a Bengal.

    35-6 sounds good to me.

    He's better than Edwards. But the Bills still suck regardless of who's back there so you guys should beat them without too much difficulty. But the Texans like to be unpredictable sometimes, so you can't say for sure.

    This is nowhere near the same team that played that game, so don't worry.

    Fitzpatrick as a Bengal rather than a Ram is what I remember. Thank Jesus our secondary is decent compared to 2005. Y'all are screwed.

    He torched us his rookie season with the Rams, and we touched up the Bengals last year with him at the helm.

    It doesn't matter if we've seen him before. Apparently the Texans only prepare for the offense the team uses the majority of the time. Any changes to scheme are total surprises

    I guess it's a good thing he has played the last two weeks. We probably need to practice as if Edwards is going to be back too though.

    Edwards isn't playing (concussion, IIRC). Fitzpatrick will be their man.

    Its an improvement over the first 3 weeks of the season where the original scheme was a total surprise!!! We're making strides as a defense, we're still extremely young and the lack of veteran leadership is the biggest issue on this team. It makes backup QBs turn into Joe Montana on us which we've become accustomed to as a franchise.

    Baby steps... i'm fine with them as long as we win the game. But if we dont win...

    The plan is to score so many points in first half that the second half is only for people with low blood pressure to watch. You know, raise it up a bit.

    This doesn't seem too difficult.

    Stack 8 in the box and make Fitzpatrick beat you with his arm.

    Having said that, the Bills game is always an ambush.

    That's right: The Fitz is back!

    Let's hope we can get more pressure on him than we did on Alex Smith.

    Lets just hope this isn't a bait and switch hoping to throw off the Texans gameplanning!

    Good thing Petey "Big Play" Faggins is not on the team. Both Fitzy and Lee evans killed him.

    Is this the same Ryan Fitzpatrick who started at quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals last year? The same Ryan Fitzpatrick who was 20/32 for 155 yds, 0 TDs, 2 INT, and a 48.3 passer rating against the Texans in week 8?

    I ain't scurred.

    I think its the same guy that beat us when he was with the Rams, its on the road, against a ball hawking defense as of late, I'm a little scurred.
