    I think we have a shot at beating the Cards.

    Essentially, they're finesse team that runs the same defense as we do; which is weak to strong running teams.

    If we can:
    - punch them in the mouth early and often (the way we played the Titans)
    - get a strong pass rush up the middle (Warner likes to step up in the pocket and doesn't like to move side to side
    - run the ball & keep their high flying offense off the field

    We have a shot.

    It may sound crazy, but we could really use Ron Dayne next week.

    I agree...I actually think we have as much a shot as they do to pull this one out, they better be prepared and not underestimate this offense cuz if they come out like they did against Indy..we will light up that secondary...regardless I think we will:texflag:

    Antonio Smith back vs. his old mates should add a little spice to the matchup

    Hey, the Browns and Bengals had that crazy score back in 2007. Anything is possible.

    The Texans can't get pressure with the front four. Warner is one of the better QBs at reading the blitz. Our secondary can't cover anyone, even the Raiders. Boldin and Fitz don't drop passes like the Raiders.

    Texans might win, but I don't see how the Cards' offense will be held down at all.

    Yeah, that was Madden-esque, but that still wasn't as big as that...It would be a fun game though if it is as long as we win

    I disagree..I think we can get pressure on Warner up front... Mario should have an advantage as I believe he'll be matched up with Gandy...I don't think we shut them down, of course not, but I think we can get some stops and our offense can put up some points this week to win. We will be chucking it all over the yard...:kingkong:

    We won't be worrying about stopping the run too much. This will be the first team where we can just put forth more focus on defending the pass. We faced four teams that have had strong rushing teams. Tim Hightower? About ten teams have two running backs with more yards than Tim Hightower. He really is bad. This is the game where we're really going to miss Jacques Reeves.

    Warner isn't really what I would call 'the better QBs' at reading the blitz. He's been sacked 7 times this season, one less than Schaub. Right around the middle of the league so I'd call him somewhat average there. Especially considering that he's 38 years old now.
