In trying to makes some sense of this disappointing season, I have done various things to try to figure out the obvious questions. I have broken down stats, re-watched game film, played the what if game, blamed the referees for terrible calls, hypothesized that the injury bug was the root of the problems, called for defensive coordinator Frank Bush's head and demanded Gary Kubiak to be fired. I looked to "Uncle BOB" for the answers but he told me that Gary Kubiak is doing a fine job. Dejected and frustrated, I have turned to the one thing that has never let me down. "Magic 8 Ball, can the Texans beat the Jets this week?" Yes, of course! I realize that the Magic 8 Ball is right. The Texans CAN beat the Jets in the same manner they beat the Colts during the first game. Run, Arian, run! In running the best RB in the NFL, the Texans can control the clock, keep the defense well rested, wear down the Jets line, render their great pass rush useless, give their best corners in the league NOTHING to defend, and limit the time that Mark Sanchez will be picking on our corners. The key here is to keep the Jets pass rush away from Matt Schaub, as they have been monsters and we have not protected the QB well at at. What do you call a quarterback with no arms and no legs? ~ Matt. Play James Allen! Allen, a corner back with experience at strong safety, was claimed off waivers earlier and the Texans have not played him yet. Gary said he would suit up. Allen could help us out with experience and depth at two positions. Maybe he should write, "Play me, Gary!" on his shoes. Put pressure on Mark Sanchez by constantly blitzing. Use DE Mark Anderson, Mario Williams, Antonio Smith, and T Amobi Okoye all day. Mix in safety blitzes and corner blitzes. Throw in the kitchen sink! Mark will beat our corners whether we put pressure on him or not so we might as well thank him with a shot at his ribs. Win the turnover battle....see #3. By calling plays that suit our strengths (running) while not allowing the Jets to use theirs (pass rush, corner backs), the Texans will have a real shot at winning. I do understand that the Magic 8 Ball is just a toy and the Texans will not follow my game plan because Gary has been stubborn all year. My prediction....if we follow the steps above Texans 27-21.....if not.....Jets 33-20. Go Texans! Take down the Jets. P.S. Matt, when you are rolling, have no receivers down field, and you are going to throw it in the stands, please knock that Fireman's hat off his head. He is a great fan but it would do me proud to see his face after that and give me a chance to give him hell about it!
