Just watched Texans vs Ravens Kareem started actually did not play bad Brooks 1st game after mario out Arian slipping on 1st drive. **No Andre out. Don't let Leach decoy on passing route ***Antonio Smith play smart. Don't get your ego hurt or your ass kicked and then lose control. Two straight penalties on 97 yrd drive. Might have held on goal line except for Smith's penalties Matt did good on 3rd down 2nd Texans drive 2nd quarter converted 2 3rd downs in a row All short passes so far. Arian not doing much on 1st down. Casey out also. 2nd Ravens drive 25 holding Blitz 56 almost safety Jamison sack Flacco rattled in endzone Kick deep in endzone 3rd Texans drive Baltimore 46 I think TJ does the rollout better than Matt as far as movement goes. 44 good run handoff going downfield Walter caught 3rd down play short of sticks 4th down go for it at 20. Foster stopped!!!!!!!!! Facemask not called. Ravens stacked up for run. 3rd Ravens drive 2 Rice runs 4 yrds Flacco fumbles on 15. Jamison 2 big plays so far. 4th Texans drive Foster Tate 1st down Tate fumbles Texans recover in endzone. Wade Smith recovers. TD Texans lucky. Hold on to the damn ball. 7-7 Flacco hit hard again. 7 times so far. Great pressure by D Rice catch after put in motion. 7 yrds Pass 1st down No long passes so far Bouldin catch 1st down Good pressure pass incomplete Rice out of backfield 15 yrd catch Torrey Smith beats 21Brice but out of endzone 3rd and one Great pressure again blitz both edges incomplete pass Fg 7-10 1:40 LEFT Walter cacth 9 yrds Winston false start Matt sacked 3rd 12 Arian dropped 2nd pass of day. Arian seems off so far. :31 Pass tipped JJ intercepts. Texans lucky receiver wide open Texans take over Pass to 12 False start 85 Trying to get into position for FG 7-10 at half Texans won turn over battle for half. One score on TO. Arian did not play a good first half. 2 dropped passes and a couple slips. Need to wear right shoes. Matt really good on 3rd down conversions. The Texans need to do a better job in early downs. I think one pass maybe 15 yards. Nothing downfield but no AJ. Texans D really pressured Flacco. Torrey Smith open deep but over thrown in endzone. Rice did good as receiver. False starts by O line I guess noise a problem. 2nd half Ravens gets ball 25 still in Rice big run on 1st down 1st big run of game 18 yrds Flacco in grasp completes pass to Rice for 1st down 10 yrds Bouldin 12 yrds on pass Rice nothing on run Rice run 6 yrds Rice goes out for breather and Incomplete pass 4th down FG 7-13 Texans 1st drive Foster pass in flat for 12 yrds Ben Tate 2 yrds Ben Tate 5 yrds Why is Foster out??? Matt gets 1st down great play Bootleg play actionlong pass to 12 TD!!!!! 14-13 Texans Matt playing really good game so far. Texans D also playing pretty solid This game was back when Texans could not finish. have the Texans grown out of this now???? Ravens 2nd drive Flacco converts on 3rd and 8 pass to Smith 19 yrds Long pass to torrey Smith 25 in coverage poor safety help Manning 52 yrds Not sure whose responsibilty but wide open. Can the Texans cover Smith??? I don't think so. No way 25 can cover Smith. Rice 6 yrd run. Quick pass 2 yrds 3rd and 2 Rice is stopped Fg good. 14-16 Matt sack on 1st down 2nd and 16 Great pass and catch 18 yrds 1st down So far one of Jacoby's best game Matt still playing good/great Tate run , incomplete pass, 3rd and 9 incomplete to 12 poor play 1:27 left in 3rd quarter 1st down long to 81 complete 24 beat long 55 yrds Great pass by Flacco Nothing on 1st down lost 5 , 3rd quarter ends 2nd and goal from 15 3rd and 15 Great pressure again 4th down FG good Big plays are setting up Ravens. Ravens not driving ball except on 1st drive but long pass plays setting them up for FG. D playing good except for long pass plays. Arian doing NOTHING. Foster 1st down Jacoby got holding so auto first down for Texans Tate 7 yrds Foster first down at Balt30 Foster 1 Matt incomplete Matt hit HARD. Barwin needs to learn how to hit hard when he gets the QB. 3rd down and 9 Foster drops pass or Pollard strips Punt to endzone 11 minutes left in game Rice 9yrd run Rice 12? Rice 2 Ricky williams dropped screeen pass 3rd and 8 Incomplete 4th and 8 14-19 Baltimore 8:39 left 14 yrd line pass to foster 6 yrds foster 1 yrd 3rd and 3 Texans call TO Matt hit from behind ball knocked loose Texans recover Texans punt 6:37 left flacco to 81 24 in coverage pass complete Pass to 82 1st down Interesting Ravens not sitting on ball but passing on 1st and 2nd down not waiting for 3rd down when you have to be perfect. Rice for 7 yrds run Rice for 26 run up middle 1st and goal from 4 Passing in early downs?? did it open up the run or is the D just running out of gas??? Ricky Williams TD 26-14 4:00 left Texans at 20 Short pass to Arian Walter incomplete 3rd and 4 Pass to Walter not even close. I think having Johnson will help everything. 4th and 4 at 26 Texans go for it. Did jacoby catch and get 1st down challenged. 3:30 left Texans lose challenge Ravens takes over on 25. Gimme FG due to Texans going for it on 4th Game over. Matt played a pretty good to great game especially on 3rd down. Can Tj play as good on third down? i don't think so. So that means the Texans need to do better on 1st and 2nd down. I think that means take a chance and pass some on 1st down. Jacoby played best game of season He needs to do the same Sunday Andre did not play. he needs to play a good game Sunday Foster played maybe his worst game?? Arian needs to step up big. I think Andre playing will make a big difference in Fosters game. D line played pretty solid especially on getting pressure on Flacco. Flacco looked pretty solid to me. Took alot of hits but kept going. Texans won TO battle i think 2-0 but still lost. 1 at end of half. Ravens went long whenever they wanted it seemed. Can Texans stop Bouldin and Smith??? Especially on long ball. Can Texans contain Rice on run and as a receiver??? Can Texans Andre( did not play) and Foster(did not have good game) make up for the Texans having TJ instead on Matt. Matt really had a solid game. I know long as hell post and a lot of rambling and stream of thought . Can't wait until Sunday. Going to be good game. Again sorry for those who decided to read.
