Our last two games rushing against them... 448 YDS and 3 TD. That is all
Do you mean our last 2 games against them, or the Titans' last 2 games?
They beat us at Reliant the last time we played them. It was a good game, but they beat us.
But the last time they played Schaub, he murdered them.
Wasn't that the delhomme game where they seemed extremely reticent to score the winning td at the end of the game? Like they tanked it to drop the tits a few draft spots?
Yeah that game was basically a wash. When you have guys from the offense playing defense on the last few drives of the game for the sake of keeping others healthy, you're not *trying* to win.
I want to say that at that point the Texans had nothing to gain in terms of seeding in the playoffs. Still always hate to lose to Tennessee. Always.
Wonder if I should start Tate in my FF league.
I've started him every week (okay mainly because my other starters keep getting hurt). He's got to get the most carries/yds out of all the backups out there.
Probably not a bad idea. If the Texans are whipping that azz they will take AF out and run the hell outta the ball.
I think Tate will have more carried than Foster. Foster is getting up there in carries this year already and they need to save some for the 3 game stretch (@Jets, Packers, Ravens) after the Titans.
last time we played the titans they could barley beat our JV team and that was only 10 months ago
isnt that the game we had dressen playing LB in ?
It was Garrett Graham #88.
Their run defense has been terrible so far this season. Their pass defense has been terrible this year. Expect the same formula of passing to jump on them early, and then pounding the crap out of them with the running game. I think Casey has a chance to get a few big plays receiving out of the backfield on Sunday as well. The Titans will be sitting back to protect against big plays leaving them vulnerable to guys catching and running with it.
The Titans squeaked by the Texans JV. And the game would have gone to OT, but Kubiak went for 2 (which was the right call). It was nothing more than a week 17 preseason game for the postseason. You've been around long enough to know this.
Chris Johnson has gone 7 games without a 100 yard rushing total. The longest drought in his NFL career. Fisher rode him too hard. Breakout the butter and jam, because this guy is toast.
We need to make sure that the middle is plugged for CJ, because the outside is much less likely to be a legitimate threat.
Containing Locker should be the focus. He has not been immune to fumbling and losing the ball or interceptions. He's had decent pass protection, his low sack rate is more because of his mobility and his quick release. Pressure is going to be the key to leaving the Tacks with crumbs on the board.
