Not sure if it still is, but used to be either delay of game or unsportsmanlike penalty if you throw a challenge flag on auto reviewed play.
If that's true, then yes, BOB is an idiot when it comes to challenges.

I don't think this is true, though. I think there's only a penalty when you throw the flag but have no challenges.

Yeah, don’t know if that’s still the case, but I remember the Texans benefiting from this rule one year they played the Lions on Thanksgiving. Might have been the game when Schaub got kicked in the nuts.

Good game against a below average team. Now beat the chiefs or this is just more the same stuck in neutral crap.

Understood. What does it hurt just throwing the flag?

Who cares though. Texans won!

In 2011, instant replay rules were changed to have the replay official initiate a review of all scoring plays. The rule stated that a team is prevented from challenging a play if that team commits a foul that prevents the next snap, or if a challenge flag is thrown when an automatic review would take place. A 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty is assessed as well as the elimination of the replay review for the play.

The better team won today.

If the Chiefs win next week I'm K.C. the better team will have won. However I'm sure there will be a large amount of posters that will disagree with me.

It depends how they lose. Do they get smoked? Do they keep it close but lose because of mismanagement of time? Do they go ahead and give up a last second td or fg to lose?

If kc is much better then the plan of going all in this year is a fail. There isn't a path to get better lacking picks and having so many free agents to sign

Watson is the first QB ever with at least 400 yards, 5 TD, with 5 or less incomplete passes. *unconfirmed source

Zero sacks for the 1st time in 14 games, only 2nd time in Watson’s career.

Fuller had 14 catches, 183 yards, 0 TD in weeks 1-4.
Fuller had 14 catches, 217 yards, 3 TD Sunday.

Texans scored 50 points in their last 3 games combined.

53 points, 2nd most in Texans history.
592 total yards, 2nd most in team history.

Tashaun Gipson is the 1st DB with a pick this season.

DJ Reader already has a career high in sacks.

Makes me wonder if the Sophomore drop off is hitting Mahomes. He's still good but defenses have a whole season of tape now to plan for him and he's had a whole season of getting banged up as well.
I feel like he's a guy who can't go off schedule like Watson can, but we'll see.

Ur apology should be as loud as Ur disrespect was

Bully Mahomes and you can beat him. Let him chill in the pocket and throw no look passes and have him whistling through the wheatfields and you will get toasted. Teams who beat KC with Mahomes have thugged it up and we should hope that our D can do the same. Watson has shown to be able to take huge hits and keep going. Mahomes gets beat up a little and he starts limping around looking for sympathy.

Yep I think so. Every QB plays worse under pressure but I from like Watson handles it as good as anyone. Like Rodgers sometimes he's even better on the run

Running on the Falcons will probably be made one step more difficult with their recent trade for safety Johnathan Cyprien if he used mostly in the box..........if he's used in coverage, he may be our 12th man.
Well, there was at least one explanation for the Texans run success up the middle............Cyprien, who was to be the new strong box run stopper was injured early in the game. He tried to play through it.............it only got worse........at first they only identified it as an "undisclosed" injury........today they identified it as a "foot" injury and have placed him on IR........in fact, I have found out that it is a severe turf toe. Tough luck for the man who missed all of the 2018 season with an ACL rupture.

I'm hoping fear of getting beat deep opens up the run game.
We need to get better at 2nd level & downfield blocking.

The OL needs more time together. I can see them getting better. The TEs don't seem to understand the concept. Gillaspia (sp) looks like he can be a beast if given the opportunity.

Will Fuller, small as he is appears to be our only WR who can & will block downfield. Hopkins tries, but doesn't appear to understand the art.

don't they have a coach on staff that is experienced in handling DBs?
...what was his name...?? :thinking:

The Chiefs secondary is going to be stronger this week than last. Their CB CLaiborne returned last week from a 4 week suspension and was rusty. Reid put him on a very limited 24 pitch count.......this week the rust for the most part should be gone and we will be getting a healthy dose of him. Before that, he had not played in a football game since the preseason when he first joined the Chiefs. Spagnuolo basically has suggested we will see a rotation at CB between Bashaud Breeland, Charvarius Ward and Claiborne.

On the bright side of Claiborne's return.......... even though he recorded a career-high 11 pass breakups in 2018, he’s been a corner who is going to give up 55-60 percent completions into his coverage while also being one of the most penalized in the game. He has been penalized 9 times each of the past 2 seasons, good for the 12th-most in 2018 and 7th-most in 2017.
