    Ravens-Texans game thread

    Undecided on this one. I would prefer to not face the Ravens D, but Houston's is likely better if they can win in Baltimore.

    Hopefully they beat each other up.

    I'd rather face the Ravens. Houston has a lot of young, athletic talent on defense, and IMO the Patriots' brain trust is at its best game-planning against known quantities, especially at QB.

    But the way these playoffs have gone, it's hard to bet against the home team.

    Would like to see us get a chance for payback against the beatdown the Ravens gave us a couple seasons ago.

    Fair that, but early forecasts show no signs of actual winter approaching.

    I don't know if the Patriots have an answer for Foster and Johnson, so I am rooting for the Ravens, although it kills me.

    It will be a little hard to get a read on how either of these teams will play us, since each team today figures to stack against the run and play ball-control.

    Re: Ravens-Texans game thread

    Give me the Texans - the Ravens are a battle tested team who know the playoffs. The Ravens will be out for blood against the Pats and match their intensity. I also like the Pats chances against a team that has a rookie QB and will have to win running the ball - one dimensional teams are easy to strategize for/play into BB. The Texans are also a Dome team that would have to come up to NE in what could be frigid and/or bad conditions. This is a no brainer.

    If the Texans beat Baltimore on the road, they'll have essentially won their SB.

    In the least, let's hope these teams beat each other up and it's a close one.

    No matter who wins, we'll all be celebrating after the game...this is the last time we will have to here that senile bastard Dan Deirdorf until September!! Whom did Greg Gumbal piss off, going from Simms to him?

    Dont want to ssee the texans. Our D will striuggle with their zone running game and nothing to lose game play and their lbs will be able to disrupt our passing lanes.

    Re: Ravens-Texans game thread

    To come out aggressive, throw the ball on the first two plays successfully and then not be able to convert on a 3rd and 1 with the top running game in the NFL - dissappointment. That was a momentum changer right there. The Texans are going to need to eat clock/score TD's. That was a major missed opportunity.

    I decided to root for Baltimore, and I'm trying, really I am. But it's just not happening.

    Heh - -the age-old conundrum: The team you want to win because they'd be easier suddenly looks better when they win.

    Re: Ravens-Texans game thread

    I thought that would have been a good place to play action - show that Ravens team that they are there to get aggressive and be unpredictable. Set the tone. To get stuffed on a vanilla running play outside with Foster was just too predictable.
