    heres what i took from the game

    1. our first round pick is very very good
    2. Foster is becoming a non factor
    3. bills fans are very obnoxious (still getting the beer stain out my shirt when they dumped beer on me)
    4. I question wither kubiak can really take us to superbowl,way to conservative.. 2nd and 20 and they run it?

    Leading the NFL in rushing TDs is far from being a "non-factor"

    I face palm in your general direction sir!

    yes once shaub gets use to the endzone hes good at running a few yards in for a td, what i was referring to was his yard per carry not use to seeing him get stuffed so much in the back field for a loss.

    Maybe you should keep puffing pandas. :bubbles:
    Foster is the most marked player on our team and every single team we play gameplans to try and stop him. That's besides the obvious (to anyone but a panda puffer) fact that a lot of his YPC being low is due to the Texans playing with a lead and running out the clock. Jim Brown wouldn't run for many YPC against 8+ in the box.

    Has nothing to do with that right side of the oline right?

    I don't get it. On your first point it's not like we've seen all that much of Mercilus so I'd like to say he's very, very good but I don't think we've got enough data to know. I think he's shown positive signs and I'm optimistic.

    Foster is second in rushing if I'm not mistaken (off the lead by about 10-20 yards?) and first in TD's. He's far from a non-factor.

    Bills fans I know nothing of but I'll accept your assertion since you're the one who smells like beer and has to clean a shirt.

    Your fourth point is I think a legitimate question. The turtle returned today a few times and frankly, I still don't like this damn coach. He's lining up against a team that everyone in the NFL and half the SEC could run on and he's got the Texans out there throwing it around. Just run the hell out of them dammit! We came out fat, rusty, and uninterested I thought and didn't put anything consistent together on offense until after the half. The Texans get the ball with 1:42 to go before the half and they turtle their asses to a three and out in about half that time. No attempt to pick up the pace or shoot downfield. Just dicking around the line of scrimmage trying to eat clock. Then they kick it away to Buffalo who actually wants to score before the half and they throw for 11, 12, and 19 yards, then run for 22 before kicking a FG with 9 seconds remaining.

    That sums up Gary completely in my eyes. He'll always do that and if Wade hadn't come along we'd be sitting around .500 and trying to keep Luck and the Colts from taking the division away from us. I don't think I'll ever like Gary.

    Heres my take on the run game TODAY.

    Tate was out and Foster has a lot of carries already, Forsett was basically a non factor. Running 50 times with Foster would have been stupid, He played it the best he could without Tate.

    The super bowl is our goal not pounding Arian into submission vs a pourous Bills defense just so we get more points.

    We won and our defense looked great.

    Special teams is still bad and our oline is VERY inconsistent.

    The real question is why are you here and not being brought in on assault charges? If some fool can't hold his liquor and is spilling it on me, it would not end well in his favor. Just sayin'......:aggressive:

    u lost me at foster a non factor......leads NFL in TDs. is top 7 in yards and demands a lot of attention. Hence reason play action like the pass to OD is so successful.

    Anti-Kubes glasses fogging up Herv? How is running 3 passing plays on the last possession of the first half "turtling"? They had 3 incompletions. How is that trying to eat the clock? Maybe I watched a different game than you did. Heh. Yeah, sometimes a coach playing the odds is frustrating to watch. In this game, with 3 minutes left everyone knew there would be 3 running plays. That's what happened. It burned 2 minutes off the clock and ensured the win. If Kubiak would have called a pass play, WAY more bad things can happen than good things. Incompletion, sack-fumble, interception... Again, it's not exciting to watch but most good coaches (like the current Superbowl winner) would play the odds and burn the clock with a 12 point lead.

    Meh...I agree with you on most things Herv, but sometimes the anti-Kubiak crap on these boards (by a quite a few members) gets frustrating. The Texans are 7-1. Enjoy. =)

    From my link. Plus the broadcast said that the Texans were doing that with Owen also(I do realize he has a hamstring issue)

    When teams work their entire defensive scheme around a running back like foster, he is not exactly a "non-factor". Even if he is averaging 3.9 yds per carry. He dictates the other teams defensive gameplan.

    As far as kubiaks decision to run on 2nd and 20; it's easier to covert a 3rd and 10 rather than a 3rd and 20 assuming an incompletion happens. Most defenses sit in dime packages on a 2nd and 20 so throwing for a big gain is harder. It's easier to run on those packages due to less down lineman/linebackers.

    Just Because kubiak doesn't heave it down field on 2nd or 3rd and long plays doesn't mean he can't take us to the Super Bowl. In fact, I think it shows the maturity of a coach to know how his team is built and stick with a gameplan. Face the facts, we have a conservative coach. The sooner you accept that, the less likely you will be upset every Sunday.

    By the way, were 7-1 and widely considered the best team in the AFC and a top contender to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

    Things are good right now.

    If anyone read the game note link. I wonder why the journalists kept asking the same damn question to each player(it seems)

    "how does it feel to be 7-1"

    I guess other teams get the same type questions when they are winning. I just feel it is a silly question I mean what do they expect a player to say?

    Things are good right now, but today's offense is not a Super Bowl winner. The play calling will have to be a lot better and Kubiak will need to get out of his conservative comfort zone for the Texans to have even a chance to win. As a fan, it would make me very happy if he would at least demonstrate that he can make the uncomfortable call from time to time.

    It's "the turtle" when all three of the passes are thrown to a guy who's barely beyond the line of scrimmage which I thought I made clear. I said nothing about how he ended the game. There's a time when you certainly eat clock and smile. That was the end of this game. I'm just saying the issue was in doubt far too long (as it has often been during Gary's mostly .500 time here). I just don't like the way he calls games. Probably never will. Enjoying 7-1 like a good fan should but I know it's because of Wade's defense and not Gary's offense. Before Wade got here the O was inconsistent but talented and the D was broken. Wade's fixed the D but the O is still at times a mystery.

    They come out like this against the Bears and it's going to be ugly next Sunday night.

    This is exactly what aggravates the ever loving ******* out of me with some of you.

    What you are complaining about is exactly what every NFL head coach does. Every GODDAMN one of them. It's just stupid.

    ****ing fantasy football.
