Game 10...Win The Trenches...Baltimore Ravens!

No the refs were wrong, it was a textbook PI and everyone in Houston should be pissed. That said, You got your ass beat today. One TD makes no difference in a 4 posession game. You should be more upset about the fumble and HORRIBLE pick DW4 threw, the playcalling, the o line, but yeah

Keep living in that fantasy world where one play was worth 28 points.
Not saying 1 missed call is worth 28 points. I am saying the entire game was thrown off by that one missed call that snowballed into a disaster of a game.

That's exactly what you're saying. You're saying you're team is so mentally weak that one play was worth 28 points. That's not true. The Ravens were just better today.

We'll probably lose the next two, then make a sort of half assed rebound and exit early from the playoffs. If we make them.

When the hell is OB going away?
Never... he is the Houston football curse incarnate.

Ur apology should be as loud as Ur disrespect was
why can’t McCarron step up in the pocket and throw it to the open underneath guy?

Screens are foreign for OB like 2min drills and TEs. He only knows how to do WR screens.
That is another thing thing that surprised the **** out of me. NE had some success with the 2 minute drill/hurry up offense. I thought that would HAVE TO BE a part of the game plan, but he called the game right into what we are good at.

Our coach is that bad. He tends to do things that the defense expects, but against mediocre teams he can get away with that. He’s been doing it for 6 years.

Confidence is such a big thing in this game. I don't think anyone wants to see the Ravens right now...they're hot.

Totally embarrassed. Never even showed up. that’s the product they put out after a bye? BOB needs an apple and a road map. Inexcusable. Time to pull the plug on this guy. BOB stinks and this team is going nowhere with him at the helm.

That's comfortable playcalling...DW4 and the offense as a whole was uncomfortable pretty much from the 1st snap. running 2 min and hurry up plays against you if you're not converting. a quick 3 & out and putting your gassed defense back on the field....score would've been 60-7.

After that obvious missed PI call, game was over
That was where BO should have pulled his head out of that Denny's menu, put a fake confident look on his face and calmed down the troops, telling them it don't mean nuthin', it's us against the world, time to kick some butt. Not kidding.

I understand that, but you have to try something other than 5-7 step drops testing a stout secondary. You would figure quick outs, slants, shallow crosses, tunnel screens, and regular screens. Get our big guys running laterally and gass them, slow down the pass rush. It may not work right away but you have to trust the cardio wont be there in the 4th.

we were doing that early in the game & it was effective. Problem is when you do try to sneak that run in & you get behind the chains...or in our case, a damn penalty puts you behind the chains, those quick outs and slants become less effective in 3rd and long. Add in the protection issues & you get what you saw from us.

Ravens took advantage of that & played in the backfield all game. Hard to run any type of offense under those types of circumstances. Ravens are just the better team right now..they're hot & noone really wants to see them.

Thats fair. I just figured he wouldnt play into Baltimores hands for 4 quarters. Granted teh way we were playing you werent putting up 30 points today, I just thought they could have kept the defense on the bench and given them a break. Played a little better situational football, and I thought that there were so many missed opportunities this game
 
After today all I can say is let's regourp and bounce back for Thursday. The season isn't over. The team can wallow in self-pity or come back fighting. Super Bowl teams have lost in embarrassing fashion in the regular season before. By no stretch and I'm saying we are a SB level team but my point is, even good teams learn to bounce back from horrible losses.
