Texans….Where Are You?

Written by: Chance Bond @Chanceb007 of http://www.football4footballheads.com

As you read this know that it is a flawed attempt to explain Monday Night Football‘s continuing Texan’s struggles. The logic I use will come from a source that are not my own. The logic I use to intelligently develop my nonsense  isn’t available for me today. “I am not me”. I’ll say it again “I am not me”. Texans Fans now say it “I am not me” That makes as much sense as anything else I have heard today.

Some of the mistakes the Houston Texans made were early in the game. Brandon Harris’ holding penalty on third down and six yards to go continued a Patriot’s scoring drive. It would have been nice if Kareem Jackson feel on the fumble of  Stevan Ridley instead of trying to pick it up and run with it. I will say up to this point , one of those  things would have happened, if not both. That was the Patriots opening drive that was extended by a Texans mistake, not a Patriot’s flawless execution. The Texans next possession didn’t look horrible either. Going 60 yards in seven plays in just over four minutes. Texans make that score and it’s a tie game.

The “Strand of Luck” Texans fans have held onto since the Jaguars game. Yeah it broke!  The beautiful palace that we lived in, shattered. It came down hard. Glass and broken hearts. The rest of the Monday Night Football game was blurry.

As I sat there, not speaking. I wondered if it was just me? Did it seem like there were situations the Texans could have or should have gotten out of?  Wonder if  Wade was telling himself “I’m not letting this squirrel of an offensive coordinator dictate my defensive scheme”? Josh McDaniels is just the kind of guy to gloat too.The Texans seemed to expect  the talent would win. Making an adjustment was not in the defensive design scheme. They just didn’t seem up to the task, they were all just “right there”.  I was beginning to think Head Coach Gary Kubiak didn’t want to put anything on film that teams could game plan and study for.

Are the Texans being exposed for using a man to man coverage philosophy? Aaron Rodgers and now Tom Brady seemed to use the Blitz to their advantage. Identifying and then exploiting the hot read. How does a guy come off the street and score on a 67 yard touchdown reception. How does legit threat wide receivers end up uncovered. If the Texans can’t get to the quarterback we lose. If  “he’s just right there” is acceptable we lose. The Texans have been exposed…twice. Offense was the same thing. Andre was single covered. Why Rick Dennison didn’t  just throw the ball to Andre all day I don’t know. The Patriots kept eight sometimes nine in the box.  Houston would never do anything to improve it. I’ve seen this team turn it on like jet rockets. They couldn’t do it. Kevin Walters was like a plaque. Schaub’s interception he was throwing to Walters. Both of the fourth downs we went for were to Walters. Hell the opening play of the game was a Kevin Walter’s penalty. We will clean our wounds and exercise the Kevin Walters demon. The national media is going to tell us how bad the Texans are, “they were exposed” Texans “don’t have the mental toughness” lack some of the “intangible aspect”  to make it in the playoffs. I don’t know? The last time the Texans got their asses kicked, they won six in a row. Let’s do the math. Three regular season games left. Two playoff…. you get where I’m going with this.We will be fine We Are Texans.

Texans, Patriots Even MatchUp?

20121206-023555.jpg

The Houston Texans reminded Bud Adams of his mistake…again. I’d go into the stats of the game, but I’m not sure what that proves. I’d rather focus my attention on the Patriots. The Texans have beaten three Division leaders this season. Denver, Baltimore, and Chicago. The team will play its fourth Division leader Monday night. The New England Patriots represent what the Texans want…sustained success. The Patriots don’t resemble who the Texans are…a better team.

CBS Cleveland


What’s a football team without somewhere to play? The Cleveland Browns Stadium wasn’t always the 31-acre, 73,200-seat giant that we see now. Formerly, the location held the Cleveland Municipal Stadium, which was where the Browns played for 49 years until Art Modell moved the team to Baltimore because the city wouldn’t tend to the old stadium’s renovation needs. The Municipal Stadium was one of the first multi-purpose stadiums, hosting over 74,000 fans for baseball and 81,000 fans for football. In 1996, the stadium was torn down and debris was left in the bottom of Lake Erie as an artificial reef. This was when the attempt to rebuild the Browns began. In 1997, building began and in 1999, the Cleveland Browns Stadium was unveiled. The first game played in said stadium was a 43-0 loss against the Steelers.

The Dawg Pound is perhaps the most famous of the tailgaters and fans that…
