From the Armchair: Texans, Week 3

From The Armchair: Houston Texans - Week 3

Yesterday's game against the Ravens was one of those stupid frustrating matches where your beloved is beating the snot out of the opposing team in every category except for the score. It's really hard to hold a 6-0 lead in the pros (just ask the Astros).

Blog Photo - From the Armchair: Texans, Week 3Well, we were beating the snot out of them until the pick-6. The game was all Ravens after that. But it wasn't just offense blowing hard. The Texans set a record with 14 penalties for 113 yards. A dubious honor. The good news is, Randy Bullock had a great game compared to the previous two. He went into the game being 1-5 in FG attempts and went 3-for-3, scoring all of the points.

I am really worried about Andre Johnson. He got knee capped in one play and was tender on it the rest of the game until he eventually was sat down because his injury caused him to not be set before a snap. Getting knee-capped hurts a lot. I had that happen to me before in tickle fights and they are a real buzzkill.

I see that we really aren't a lot different from the team we were the past few years. We get ourselves into way too many 3rd and long situations and never. try. Teams who fight to get the 13 yards are trying to win. We concede with a stupid draw play every time. EVERY time. Everyone sees it coming, coach. Not that it matters at all, cause hey, you're only gonna get 4 yards, or sometimes we even push ourselves further back because it's so. damn. predictable. So stop not trying. Jesus.

I don't have a whole lot to say. I am still sick to my stomach because none of my rally equipment worked and it makes me feel like maybe none of it carried any weight of our 11-0 start last year. Maybe none of it matters at all.

Nah of course it matters. I ain't stupid.

I watched some of this game and maybe it was just me but the Texans just didn't seem to have any spark on either side of the ball. Seemed like they were almost walking through the motions during a mid week practice  indecision just didn't look like they were energized out there. Too much talent for that. 

hopefully Andre is ok and its not one of those 3-4 week lingering kind of things. 

they do that too often, the whole lose the spark thing. gives me heartburn.

I'm worried about Andre too, Leigh.  We heard pretty quickly yesterday that X-ray results were negative, but an MRI was scheduled for tomorrow.  Well, today is now "the tomorrow day", and I'm still just hearing about negative X-ray results.  What happened to the MRI?  Maybe Kubiak...ahem...misspoke when he referred to negative X-ray results again, but I don't know that I'm buying that explanation.  The Texans could give the Kremlin a run for their money when it comes to guarding secrets, and I'm not gonna be surprised at all if we start hearing the dreaded "day-to-day" and "he's real close" status updates regarding Andre as Sunday draws near.

maybe you could add a new piece of rally equipment. I'm sorry for your loss. :(
