    Game #1

    Texans vs. Colts breakdown



    Texans are looking for there first win of the season. What a better way to start off the season by beating the Colts. We are an embarrassing 1 and 15 against the colts, and
    The only win ever recorded was off the foot of Kris Brown. Who was cut after the last preseason game against the Buccaneers. The Texans hope to be a playoff caliber team this year. To do this you must beat the best and to do that you must start by beating the colts. This will not be easy for 3 reasons on both side of the ball

    Offence

    1. Will we be able to run the ball
    2. There must be no turnovers
    3. Can we give Schaub enough time to throw

    Defense
    1. Can we apply pass rush on manning
    2. Can K. Jackson keep up with there offence
    3. Who will take Brian’s spot at Line Backer

    If the Texans want to succeed.. The Texans must do does things




    Houston’s Passing Game vs. Indy’s Pass D




    To get the run game started they will most likely have to throw the ball which is no easy task. Because In this game veteran Bob Sanders returns to the colts. This has to give nightmares to the offensive line and Matt Schaub. Not to forget about
    D. Freeney. Who reminds me of Mario Williams this tag team must be stopped if we want to win the game if we can handle them I am 100% positive Schaub will put up great numbers.



    Houston’s Running Game vs. Indy’s Run D



    Like I previously said in the last section “We must pass the ball to run the ball.”
    Don’t get me wrong Arian Foster looks to me like a every down back. But the colts I believe will be able to stop the run. If we start out and control the clock bye passing and stopping the colts on defense. We should be able to run it at will. Arian should start off the year with 100+ yards.




    Indy’s Running Game vs. Houston’s Run D


    The Texans rush defense looked decent in preseason. I expect the colts to throw the ball more then trying to run because there run game is one of the worse in the league, and the Texans secondary is a mess this being said. I expect the Texans to keep the colts less than 120 yards total rushing.




    Indy’s Passing Game vs. Houston’s Pass D




    This is where we must take a stand. K. Jackson our rookie corner out of Alabama is
    going too bullied. The Texans defensive line must stand up and knock Manning to ground. The more pressure the better. Pollard must be ready to step up and defend our home turf this is what will win us the game pressure and turnovers so Schaub
    can work his magic








    I TOOK THIS IDEA FROM LORK 88

    POSITION BATTLE
    QB Advantage: PUSH
    RB Advantage: HOUSTON
    WR Advantage: PUSH
    TE Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS
    OL Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS
    DL Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS
    LB Advantage: PUSH
    CB Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS
    S Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS
    K/P Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS
    RET Advantage: HOUSTON



    FINAL SCORE

    TEXANS 31
    COLTS 28



    If you want me to write my thoughts before every game post here and put yes in the poll thanks!

    Nicely done SIAB. Continue with the improvement. Sorry I got tired of editing. When you make it big as a sports writer, I can be your editor. Keep doing this, it is good practice for you.

    Repped! :texflag:

    However, I think a little differently:

    POSITION BATTLE
    QB Advantage: PUSH - PUSH
    RB Advantage: HOUSTON - HTN
    WR Advantage: PUSH - HTN
    TE Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS - HTN (we use more TEs)
    OL Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS - HTN (they lost a starter)
    DL Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS - HTN
    LB Advantage: PUSH - PUSH
    CB Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS - PUSH
    S Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS - INDY
    K/P Advantage: INDIANAPOLIS - INDY (but it shouldn't matter, IMO)
    RET Advantage: HOUSTON - HTN

    Final Score:
    Texans 31 Indy 24

    If it's that close (31-28) Texans lose. As CarrBombed mentioned (and I happen to agree with), the Texans need to get out to a fast start and get up by a couple of scores. I'm thinking the final should be like 31-17, or somewhere in that neighborhood.

    I like Schaub as much as the next guy, but the advantage will go to Indy until Manning shows decline. That guy is the #1 guy behind center

    First game of the season - the new rule change positioning the umpire behind the offensive backfield will impact the Colt's offense. Advantage Houston.

    Not really.. Peyton will work the refs over. Bottom line, no advantage there. The Texans need to get out to a strong start and be able to run the ball.. I suspect, or should I say expect a two score win by the Texans.. :)

    Peyton has already pushed the envelope on the new rule in PRESEASON. Dude knows
    the boundaries, and he's gonna find ways to turn it into an advantage.

    Get this straight:
    You have to BEAT Manning. He just doesn't make unforced mistakes.
    The Texans can't depend on any "luck." They are gonna have to remain
    locked in for 60 minutes to have ANY chance at winning. Fifty-nine minutes
    and fifty-nine seconds won't cut it.

    PLAY 60!

    Nice job SIAB. Much better than your old stuff that is for sure.

    Funny that none of the people that voted no one this poll have responded and given their reasons why. ALWAYS make polls public. This keeps people accountable instead of just anonymously bashing someone and then not being open about it.

    Interesting. Not sure I would agree but interesting. My responses in blue.

    I'd honestly say this game comes down to the run game surprisingly. If we can run the ball effectively, I think we win the game as this is the area we have the biggest edge. The key to beating Peyton Manning is to keep him from having time to be Peyton Manning. We need to control the clock and hold onto the football. Indy isn't great up the middle as well so we have to be able to keep Freeney and Mathis honest by not letting them just constantly blitz us and knock Matt around. Run it up the gut and keep them guessing. When they least expect it, air it out to Andre.

    I voted no because there are already week 1 breakdown threads. This doesn't really add any new insight to what we already have. I'm not trying to be rude, just honest. I think this could have just been added as a message to another thread. Come next Monday, if we don't have a thread going for week 2, then I think it would be great if you made up another one of these.

    Chill Bill! Maybe you are just kidding (hard to tell sometimes), but I certainly wouldn't be referring to you. You've always been one to give your opinion and not hold back, and I like that.

    I was simply stating that I found it interesting that more people voted no on the poll, but no one had commented, until TexCanada did just now, on why they didn't think he should do more of these. No worries though. Was just an observation. :cool:
