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!
