    I think they have had a few injuries on their D-line, so maube it was a bit of Texans playing better and OAK being bad.

    Oakland's DL wasn't playing at 100% due to injuries + they have one of the poorest Run D's in the league (secondary is GOOD).

    I think its a combination of Oaklands DL not being that good and our OL playing with more of a fire.


    The think all week was how lame and soft our team is. Because the D hasn't been hitting hard or doing crap and our guys let our star QB get beat up 2 games in a row, how pathetic that was. I think our whole team was pissed off the entire week and came out with guns-a-blazing. Our Defense hit harder than they have all season (esp. Demps) and our OL played with more spunk.

    FYI, Miami's rushing defense is worse than the Raiders. We mustered up a mind-boggling 74 yards against the Dolphins. 15 of those yards came from Walter and Schaub.

    This team has yet to show consistancy since the beginning.:pirate:

    I think this factored in as well.

    I was wondering the same thing myself. I know Studdard didn't play because I saw a shot of him on the sideline in street clothes, but I'm not sure about Frye or even White. I don't think either one of them played. I was surprised at how well Flanagan was doing in the run blocking department. I know Oakland's Run Defense is very poor, but that's pretty bad when you make "Old Man" Flanagan look like an All Pro! :laughjump:

    Well, the good news is that we can beat other bad teams. Which means we are not the worst of the worst.

    The bad news is there aren't a lot of teams in the NFL we can beat. My projection now is maybe, at best, two more wins this season. That puts us at 5-11 which means we are going backwards.

    Please, Texans, prove me wrong once again.

    I believe that would put us at 6-10.
