    Tie game 17-17, the D needs to step up, it's up to the defense at this point.

    DeMeco Ryans is not playing like a great player.

    He was playing hurt, but Ryans' game is his athleticism. An bum ankle really affected him.

    I don't care if we don't win any game the rest of the season. Any game we do win will be as meaningful as those pre-season wins. Fool's gold. We are not a good team and thats because of personal decisions. Why the hell is Richard Smith still allow into Reliant Stadium? Until Kubiak learns what it takes to make a good team, we just aren't going to be competitive team.

    Notice how Jack-Del Rio went on 4th down on his first drive, TWICE, he knows Richard Smith is a crappy coach and thus is picking on him throughout the whole game. Just like Garrard picks on Faggins/Reeves the whole game. Richard Smith is the Faggins of coaches.

    Oh btw, for all you guys that say we don't have enough defense to succeed. You're freaken right. I mean having the top ten picks in 4 out of our 6 drafts was not enough to get us some damn talents? You got to be kidding me. We suffer through bad personal in the first 4 years, seems like it going to be like that again this season. *******king Richard Smith. I can't believe this crap.

    Two fourth downs on the first drive? Hmm...not quite.

    The second 4th down attempt was with 2:27 in the ball game? Not exactly a call that points weakness at the other teams DC...just a gutsy call, which can potentially win you the ball game.

    First fourth down attempt (the TD)...surely a poke of fun at both Kubes and Smith...a Time Out woulda been awfully handy in stopping a stupid TD then.

    The pass rush was missing tonight, Gerrard was throwing quickly, we couldn't get to him. Perhaps inventive blitz's would have done the job, perhaps not. Reeves...did he stop a thing all night before the catch was made? I can't remember it... DeMeco's injury didn't help, but either way he wasn't too good either.

    There is a personnel issue on the D, along with the DC situation.

    Whether his ankle was bothering him or not, DeMeco should have made that tackle against Greg Jones in overtime. What should have been a pass out in the flat for no gain ended up being a 22 yard dagger to the heart down to the 19 yard line after DeMeco had his arms around Jones.

    His ankle had nothing to do with that play.

    Where in the hell has Travis Johnson gone to? Is he hurt? Benched? Why the hell do I have to watch Jeff Zgonina bumble his 40 year old ass to our line?

    I wondered this too. It made sense last week when TJ was inactive - but Johnson was in the game today, yet - didn't start. I mean, if TJ isn't healthy enough to start, why would he be healthy enough to play at all?
