2110358, Lac riding on snow tires: Hou @ NE, AFC divisional playoff
Posted by Binlahab, Sun Jan-13-13 11:12 AM
*shrug*

Literally nobody thinks we will even be competitive.

My take:
Houston establishes the run against Wilfork, keeping Brady off the field. Couple timely turnovers and voila...Houston 21, NE 17

I buy the Texans getting off to a better start.

I buy the Texans getting a couple of magical big plays (special teams, turnover, accidental big play cuz a Pat misses a tackle, etc).

I buy this game being a game for much longer than folks think.

I don't buy the Texans big name guys coming through in the clutch down the stretch.

I expect an appalling Texans loss that woulda coulda shoulda been a win that will call several of their pieces into question.

Posted by pretentious username, Sun Jan-13-13 03:34 PM
Nah, the Texans will be more competitive than they were a few weeks ago. I mean, they have to. They really can't play much worse than that. I just hope we can keep our timely turnover thing up, cause I still don't like this secondary against AJ.

Welp, I'm out. See you guys after the game. I hope Brady is dancing on some letterman jackets with his ugg boots by that time.
2110850, I see this being close only if Brady comes out rusty.
Posted by muzuabo, Sun Jan-13-13 04:26 PM
If Brady is sharp then it is over by halftime with the starters in the 2nd half of the game to protect the lead. 4th quarter is celebration time.

do or die
2110922, a few reasons (not saying they're right but playing devil's advocate):
Posted by Bombastic, Sun Jan-13-13 05:14 PM
1) Last week they played clock/field-position/risk-free because they didn't have to worry about Cinci's offense on the other side whereas today no matter how well the D plays they're gonna give up at least 21 points.
2) They're trying to get Matt Schwag's confidence back.
3) The Pats are more vulnerable to the pass than the run.
4) Trying to establish the ailing passing game early which may set up ground-and-pound later on.

Posted by MothershipConnection, Sun Jan-13-13 05:32 PM
Once he got into the pros Jahvid mighta done too much tap dancing.

EDIT: after remembering Jahvid Best's existence, I found this quote on his Wikipedia: "Regarding the pick, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said, "Some people watch adult videos on their computer... I go to YouTube and watch Jahvid Best highlight clips. Thatís what gets me going.""
2110953, if Best's head was healthy, he'd still be a beast

2110983, Unfortunately Tedford forgot how to coach offense after those guys
Posted by MothershipConnection, Sun Jan-13-13 05:53 PM
I think Vereen's last year was when it started to fall apart, dude let his playbook swell to like 500 pages for a bunch of college kids and it was a wrap after that.
2110951, that was a petty call on Lloyd to kill a drive
Posted by Jon, Sun Jan-13-13 05:33 PM
yeah dude put a little too much pepper in that toss to the official, but it didn't look at all like he meant it like that.

real silly call for a playoff game
