It's F'ing Houston week!

Week 2 matchup: Houston Texans at Washington Redskins - NFL - Sporting News

I think both teams could be in for letdowns coming off huge division wins. The Kyle Shanahan connection could play in our favor, but we need to get the offense cranking to keep up with Houston's high powered attack. Unlike Dallas who was all hype, Houston actually delivered week 1.

Yeah, we could be in trouble. If our run d against dallas was any indication, Foster could be in for a huge game. Unlike Dallas, Kubiak doesn't seem to need to force the pass, he'll happily run it all day if it's working.

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

Well,we were able to shut down and take Witten out of the game against Dallas...

I'm thinking they will target a key player and do the same...Andre Johnson will probably get his catches regardless,much like Austin. But if we can keep him from hurting us deep,I think we can manage that...

Owen Daniels is a darn good TE and we will need to keep him in check like we did Witten.

But to win,I think we need to keep their Running game in check and put lots of pressure on Schaub and try to force turnovers with our aggressive Defense.

If we can cause fumbles and get a pick or 2,we can win the game.
I think Schaub can be rattled...and we need to find a way to do it!

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

Its funny cause I fear Houston's running game more than its passing game right now. We must be more physical up front and push there line into the back field on runs. In the pass game, we are gonna have to sure up our zone coverage. Too many holes, but Homo couldnt find'm.

On Offense we MUST be better on 3rd downs. I think we were 3-13 last week. That sh*t is not getting it done. I think the redzone play calling needed to be better too. I hate it when we called back-to-back corner fades. Change it up and use our talented TEs. I believe our offense will be better.

I also think if we are physical right off the bat with Texas on both sides of the ball, we could create some intimidation. Let them know its gonna be a long day on the road playin an NFC East team

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

We will give up yards to the Houston offense - that's a given. It's whether we will give up points that is the better question. Dallas gashed our defense with 380 yards of offense but the defense stepped up when it mattered so I think they will do the same.

I think Arian Foster will do pretty well against us b/c we could not stop Dallas' run game to save our life and Andre Johnson will have a good game as well b/c Doughty is too slow and neither Hall, nor Rogers is good enough to cover him.

That being said, the Dallas defense is way, way better than Houston's defense so I am looking for the offense to show up a little more this week. I think we may actually have a relatively high scoring game with each team breaking 25 points each.

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

I watched the Texans-Colts game and the Texans ran the ball at will. It wasn't just Arian Foster - anyone could have run through those holes. If we don't fix our run D this week, we could be in trouble.

Conversely, the Texans pass D is less than scary as long as you can keep Mario Williams in a bottle. We need a plan to keep him out of the backfield, and we need to stop dropping passes, but if we do those things then McNabb could have a nice day.

The Texans targeted the Colts and now they're on the road. Let's hope that they suffer an emotional hangover.

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

I wonder if Garrett kept passing simply because haslett kept blitzing? They ran on the 3rd & short plays & caught us w/1 d linemen. If Houston is dead set on running the ball, I'm sure we'll see Haslett put in some bigger fronts.

The run d is a concern though, I thought dallas could've pounded it on us a lot more.

Probably just their week one gameplan more than anything, play smashmouth and keep the ball out of Manning's hands. No doubt they want to run, but I doubt they keep up that run to pass ratio all season.

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

I got to think having Kyle on our side is a huge plus. We need this win because it is a home game.

Plus Indy vs. Hos; those two teams know each other really well it is a toss up when you play out of your division; you never know we may match up well against them.

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

^^ I was glad Dallas didn't continue to run the ball, the outcome may have been different had they done so. The one play that was surely going for a touch when they called time out sticks in my mind.

The Texans are going to have to take their show on the road, it remains to be seen if they can be as effective at FedEx as they were at home Sunday against the Colts. If they insist on running the ball in hopes of duplicating their previous effort, we'll adjust accordingly.

While I do have some concerns about our run defense, it's not to the extent I fear the Texans beating us with their running game. We need to show improvement on both sides of the ball, both our passing and running games need to gear up and be consistent. Our offense must lead us to more than a couple field goals.

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

I think our offense will play much better this Sunday, in fact it wouldn't shock me if we led in TOP. Texans have a good Pass Rush but their overall D is nothing like Dallas. Houstons secondary is very avg. I also say our D plays at a high level once again, those guys will be fired up to shut down another good Offense..


23-17 redskins

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

I think all week one games can be misread a bit.

First, you're not working with much game film, so you're not as prepared defensively to see what they'll thow at you. And from a conditioning perspective, some players are still transitioning from training camp to regular season. Case and point, Jamal Brown is still getting into football shape.

I think we'll be fine. Foster might get his, but I think our defense is better than the Colts anyway.

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

Look for the Texans to go to the air alot more against our soft zones. My guess is that we will win a close game by a field goal. I'm a little drunk right now, so I dont have any business posting, but I did it anyways! HOUSTON... SUCK MY JAGON!

Maybe McNabb will put on a performance to rival that of Marc Brunell the last time we played the Texans. A record 22 consecutive complations, a record since tied by David Carr. j/k.....I don't really expect that kind of performance on Sunday, but I do want to see more sustained offense against a team capable of scoring points. We're not going to win a lot of games scoring 13 points, so the offense must begin to show improvement and I think they will.

re: It's F'ing Houston week!

I think it'd be great if our defense randomly spit out lines from this classic

I miss you like the sun rise
by Arian Foster

I miss you like the sun rise
Winter nights became reality's home,
Snow men stand here like soldiers of Rome,
My tears freeze before they kiss the wind,
I think of warmth and miss you then,
Since when when did rose petals crack While pondering love,
Dressed in pitch black with this sombering sun,
I sit an fish, out of the river Styx,
Catching cold souls with their quivered lips,
They whisper sweet like lemons drip,
And gaze my eyes like Medusa's gift,
My bait is smiles.
Unhook me, look me not into dusk,
Ease my cuts, and release my lust,
Inhale my words, and breathe my wants,
Let the light marry my eyes,
And let the same inherit the skies.
I miss you like the sun rise.
