    For me its Rackers! Man i been having a strange dream, for the past three nights. It always ended with the game on the line ,and down by three, but Rackers missed a 30 yard game winning field goal wide right...

    Please do not let this happen!

    Jacoby Jones too. I hope he continues his good play even when AJ returns they are going to need him.

    I think in the 5 games AJ has been out JJ has caught 11 passes for 199yds.

    Nah.... No player in particular....... It boils down down to our running game v. their 26th ranked defense against the run...

    I was going to say Reed. I believe in this guy. I think he will show yet more improvement this week. Cushing has sold me. As I said in another thread, no more Cushing pregnancy jokes out of me.

    On a different note I'll see Kareem fall down soon enough.

    Texans pass rush Vs Josh Freeman .... They gotta get him on the ground , not just knock him around.

    This. Freeman seems like the wild card with the Bucks. He can be boom or bust. And with our pass rush he's gonna get flushed out of the pocket. If we can't bring him down he can move out of the pocket and make plays.

    Me too. Jacoby Jones & Aquib Talib.

    I think Jacoby has been playing out of his mind. I haven't seen a CB in the league stay with him all year. Just hope we can get the ball to him.

    I'd also like to see how younger more athletic LBs keep Freeman pinned in the pocket.

    I don't think his stats indicate how well he's been playing.

    I'd agree. These last few games have been all about the rushing attack. We haven't need significant contributions from the air attack to really win out. I'm fine with that. JJ has been running good routes. He's below his average from last year of 3.5 catches per game (he's at 2 per game this year), but we haven't really need him to catch as many. My guess is that when we play better teams like Atlanta we'll need to be throwing the ball more and that's the best time to really evaluate how well he's doing.

    Just about anyone on the offensive line. I'm always excited about watching any part of the team truly excel, and the trenches have been a heck of lot of fun to watch this year. The matchup should - hopefully - cater to the strength, and I expect to see fireworks from the big guys.

    EDIT: Will definitely be watching Cushing too - for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that he becomes the scariest man in the world when blood starts gushing down his face.

    Personally, I think the secondary could be in for a big day but that all starts by watching what the pass rush can do. If we can keep Freeman in the pocket and force him to pass he really telegraphs his throws so our defensive backs could capitalize on this.
