    I'm so pissed right now! We should have won this game! All I keeping thinking about right now is if we had Johnson or Green playing, would the Texans have gone 0 for 3 in the red zone? Man, this sucks...I hope we get healthy soon.

    I definitely think this would have been a different game offensively with Andre in there. And we had a chance to take the lead more than once...Andre is just a game changer man. Without those big plays he made in our first two games we could have easily been 0-4 right now.

    I am trying to ignore his presence but it is just too huge. Hopefully he'll be back, I look at it this way...we are still undefeated with him and Schaub both starting :specnatz:

    If we had AJ, Green, or JJ we score. Also, why didnt we utilize Daniels in the endzone. The endzone short pass is perfect for the TE to capitalize on.

    I think we missed Green more then AJ today. Dayne, Cook, and Gado is a very bad, bad scene at RB.

    If "ifs" and "buts" were fruits and nuts, oh what a Merry Christmas we would have.

    Don't forget that Steve McKinney was very important for in-between the tackles running. But every team has injuries. We have a ton of them but there's no excuse for the garbage we trotted out to Atlanta today.

    I like the one from Ephraim Salaam . .

    If "ifs" were "fifths" we'd all be drunk.

    simple reality is that if you take the RB, the WR1, WR2, both kick returners, and Center off any NFL team all at once....that team likely struggles to win since the talent is so even across the league. Our reserve talent isn't what I'd call "elite". It really hurt us bad in the red zone today.

    Indeed. And Dayne, for as big as he is, runs awfully soft. You'd think he'd move the pile but he usually just gets stoned. Slow and soft is not a good combination for an NFL RB.

    The playcalling in the redzone was not great either. The best redzone play that I saw was Schaub's scramble, and I dont think it was drawn up like that.

    The guys plays their best today, and if we had everyone healthy we would have one, but the fact is we didn't. Horrible playcalling and clock management.
