    I think this will be the key matchup of the game. If Ware has a good game, the Texans will have a bad one, IMO. We have to contain this guy. Hopefully, the backs will know their assignments on passing downs.

    It's a coaching mistake, IMO, to expect Salaam to handle Ware 1-1 on more than a handful of plays. Chip him with a RB, overplay him outside and get inside help, line up a TE, whatever it takes ....

    Leaving Weigert one-on-one against Ellis. This may be pick your poison time.

    This is what scares me the most about this weeks game. If (and we need to) help Salaam with a RB or TE, who helps Wiegert with Ellis.

    While reading this thread I got to thinking about all the sacks we've given up over the years. The question I then asked myself: Has there been a single game that we've gone without giving up a sack? I reckon it'd take some research time in order to determine the final answer, but it's just something to ponder.:lightbulb:

    This will be an extensive test of our Oline. The odds are not in our favor.

    Then you've got Spears, Ferguson & Canty in the middle..... That's going to be tough to run against.

    There have been, I just don't remember which ones. Carr would celebrate by taking his lineman out to dinner - I recall reading about that.

    Salaam held Jason Taylor in check pretty well, I think the sack and fumble was against Belile, or however you spell his name. I'm more worried about Weigert on Ellis, we might not see a lot from our TE's in the passing game because they are going to be needed in blocking.

    I suspect that just about every down will have a lineman/TE/RB/FB trying to help out Salaam, which is Butkus. He's our starting tackle. He should be able to handle the guy on his own.

    You may be right but I hope you are wrong. Why did we get rid of Ware anyway? :confused:
