    On offense, play fast and aggressive.

    1. Come out firing to get Schaub in a rhythm. Get AJ and OD involved in the first few plays.

    2. Run off tackle, right at Freeney or Mathis. Our guard/tackle combos provided nice running lanes for Foster, and he has good vision to take it outside or cut it back inside. Repeat frequently. Get Casey involved to crack block on Freeney and Mathis.

    3. Once you have Foster going, hit them with 3 WR's to spread'em out further. Gouge them with runs and hit em with play action, Jacoby or AJ deep.

    4. Schaub cannot underthrow open receivers. Long gainers need to be TD's.

    On Defense

    1. Begin with Base Defense. See if the front 4 can take advantage of Indy's weakened line. Run our 3rd down line of Barwin/Smith/Okoye or Mitchell/Mario to get penetration. Interior pressure is a must. Let the LB's take care of Addai.

    2. Mix of man and tampa 2 to give Peyton different looks.

    3. Be willing to risk giving up a big play on 3rd down. Do not provide an easy cushion to allow Manning to move the chains. Be willing to play press coverage with some help up top. Be willing to jump a route. The defense will gain confidence if we can get off the field on 3rd and mid/long situations.

    I agree with most of this as it is something similar I would think of, but I would like to see the Texans to come out rushing the quarterback. The key is not letting Peyton get in to a comfort zone. Something we have never really been able to get him out of. He feels at home playing the Texans, it is about time we change that. I would like to see our corners play for the picks tomorrow and people need to keep an eye on Antonio Smith. That man is the key to our DLine. The man in underrated.

    My game plan is:

    1. To make sure the phones are silent

    2. The TV is working correctly

    3. There is a freah pot of coffee

    4. That I have nothing else that I have to do but sit on the couch and scream at the plays.

    Sounds kind of like mine:

    -Wake up at 6

    -Get the grill going - Ribs, New York Strip, with some tater salad, and baked beans on the side

    -Ice down some beer

    -Wait for the football watching crew to show up

    -420

    -Texans football. :texflag:

    As to the OP, sounds good. I want the Texans to get to the forehead early, and often. Blitz the hell out him, but not to the point of completely selling out, and giving up too many big plays.

    Will you be running out on the field to do this? Maybe when he's doing all his convulsing right before the snap?

    My plan is to get as un-sober as possible in order to possibly blackout anything I don't want to remember.

    That might be the ticket!! While he's standing around and shouting BS while looking like he's convulsing, I jump the wall, run up to him and POW, a blast to his package!! Nice....

    Who's got my bail money ready??

    This has been my weekly game plan since August of 2002.

    Here's what I think the Texans need to do in order to win the game (common sense stuff mostly)


    On offense...

    A.) Protect the football and avoid turnovers

    B.) Pound the ball as the Colts have been know to have a weak run defense

    C.) Play action, use it as often as possible

    D.) Target everyone instead of relying on AJ and KW the whole time, get our TEs involved as much as possible.


    On defense...

    A.) Take advantage of the offensive line woes

    B.) BLITZ, BLITZ, AND BLITZ SOME MO'

    C.) Put Manning on his butt



    For fans...

    Bust out some vuvuzelas when Manning & Co. are on offense but be dead quiet when we're on offense!

    My game plan is to get a few beers in me, then hope and pray that one of the local stations picks up the Texans game. If not, then I will pick up an on-line feed and watch on my computer. Go Texans!

    I will donate to your bail money as long as you punch him before the game.

    yes! i loved that part lol. seeing bill run onto the field and punt manning in the junk would make that the greatest day in the history of EVER. my gameplan is to hope my hangover's gone before kickoff, pour several bourbons either way, and yell obscenities at the TV until the texans win.

    dc quoting skills - :facepalm:
