and call me polly anna, but the game went much as I expected except the score was closer than I had thought. Due to the "rep" of Colts and Texans history, I expected a slow start and nervousness & we got it. I expected a loss but with the team coming back in 2nd half and it did. I expected a poor effort by the running backs because nothing indicated different. Yes Moats had a great game against Buffalo, but Bills are not the Colts. As the defensive backs were removed from playing, I did think "Well, we should see an aerial show from Texans." Schaub did go for 300+ but it took him a long time to get going. He should have had a 450 yard game with 3 starting DBs out. Defense manhandled the Colts and even stopped the trick pass that could have caught them unaware. I remember thinking oh, oh, 6 points. They held the RB to 72 yards net. I guess I can shut up now about needing a huge DT to stop the run. Bush has made a believer out of me. So has Antonio Smith. I guess I was caught up in history and with the beginning of Smith's play. He and his coach got into it and maybe Smith has gotten past it as he has looked pretty good for a few games. Maybe this is a FA Rick Smith got right. I have posted that DR will be back next year but he did not help his case yesterday. I could not see much on Wilson, can anybody give me an eval? I am more and more convinced that my board CB, Pwer back, FS, OG, C/OG, SS/FS and then LB is accurate. I hope Kubes moves Myers to RG and replaces him at center with Caldwell. We have got to get a stronger runnng back. We are not going to get strong guards or center that can blow a Dline back unless Kubes give up on the ZBS. We knew what we were getting when they signed these guys. None were known for run blocking. If the type of player is not gonna be changed on Oline, then it has to be a more powerful RB. Too bad as I don't see one on the horizon. I like Toby Gerhart but no guarantees he will translate to NFL. Lastly, can we not have a secret code to tell the OC to inform Schaub to rush the next play? Everyone on the D was screaming, "Get the next play off". Maybe like "Oh, Crap! Fire truck red!" Schaub yells the code fires the ball into the ground stopping the other team from having forever to decide to drop the red flag. Summary, we can beat the Colts, Miami and New England. 12-4 is the new goal.
