    Take care of business and stay healthy. No turnovers, no stupidity.

    dont really agree with that... ya we need to win and all but more importantly we need to get tj as much practice as possible before the playoffs. not saying we should go pass happy but we should do what we've done all year in throwing to set up the run. if we run the ball from the get go and end up with 40-50 carries tonight and tj throws 10-15 passes, we'll win but how much more prepared will tj & the team be to face the ravens, steelers and all the other teams we realistically wont be able to run on much in january in games where he'll have to make his share of throws?

    I agree. In order to win the Super Bowl, you have to pass, run AND play defense. We need to know how to do all three. TJ needs to make those downfield passes as well as the dump offs to the backs before the run game will even work against the big guys.

    Yes, things have changed, but here are the stats from week 1.

    37 rushing attempts
    24 passing attempts

    While I want Yates to get more game time throws, I still think our formula for beating Indy is to ram the ball down their throats and right past Freeney and Mathis.

    First, thanks for waiting for the game day thread.

    I really don't care how many pass attempts TJ makes tonight as long as he is going through his progressions and throwing to OPEN guy down field.

    The Texans are 0-9 in Indy! After tonight, on paper, there shouldn't be any reason that the Texans fail to come out of it 1-9.............on paper........:thinking::texflag:

    The outcome of tonights game will prove the Texans are who we think they are. Either way, of course.

    Here's to a 1-9 record in Indy! :texflag:

    Most people on the Colts boards are hoping for a loss to secure the #1 draft pick, however I'm sure the team doesn't feel the same way.

    I'm expecting a 17-13 win tonight.

    Good! Thorn didn't start the gameday thread! Now we might stand a chance. :heh:

    I hope the Texans come out and play with some fire, and get back on track. I expect Arian and Ben to have pretty damn good games tonight. :texflag:

    I guess if we make it to the super bowl, the chances of me starting that game thread would be pretty low?? :tinfoil:

    The only thing I want tonight is a convincing win. We are unquestionably a better team than Indianapolis and I would like it to show. The Texans have this habit of "playing down" to their opponent and I want to see it broken tonight. There is no reason why we shouldn't win this game by 14+.

    I think the mods would temporarily lock your account until the Super Bowl gameday thread was started by someone else

    ...I would.

    Thorn, you are hereby BANNED from Ttalk on 1/7-8 or 1/14-15.

    About my "what I want to see" when talking about passing/running: The ONE time I don't say "throw to set up the run", and get people disagreeing with me. Damn you who disagreed. :sarcasm:
