    Re: Let's talk about Houston



    I think they will come out a little overwhelmed and flat against us at our place. The key is an early lead and force them to throw the ball. I don't think they can run on us like they did tonight at home in good conditions. Cincys inexperience showed big time and the better team won. Next week will be our turn. Two weeks to rest my voice and new fingernail growth , Im good to go. No turnovers for us and 2 for them Ravens 23-13. We could score more but Cam won't let us.

    While I certainly think this Ravens team will win, I think their Defense knows they have to play lights out to keep them in this game. Hopefully Cam saw some things he can use to exploit their pass rushing attack.

    Texans don't scare me. They are a good team but they aren't Ravens level. Playoff time now baby!

    Ravens third in the league with 48 sacks
    Texans are good too in sixth with 44 sacks

    I've no reason to doubt our Oline but it's a better pash rush then we've faced most weeks

    I disagree.

    Because the Texans played here last Oct they'll be prepared for the raucous crowd and they'll be ready. I also think unless the Ravens go up 3 TD's, the Texans will stick with the run. The big thing is that I think the game will be a little too big for TJ Yates who'll make some mistakes and simply won't be able to carry them when they need him to.

    They held them to two sacks last October and this was without Ben Grubbs. The Ravens are going to be ready for whatever they have to offer.

    Houston's offense, especially with Yates is pretty vanilla. They are going to try to run off tackle and play action off that.

    Yates will not get away with too many of those lollipop throws like he did to Johnson for the long TD.. And he's lucky he got away with Cincy dropping a potential pick 6 just before that..

    If we can't beat a rookie QB after a bye week, we don't belong in the playoffs at all.

    Yates a rookie with few starts and his line will be severly limited by crowd noise and the defense of course.

    Let us remember, Suggs at home is a completely different animal. Couldn't do it with Schaub, can't do it with Yates. Apparently Cam was at the game tonight. I hope he took notes.

    It will be insanely loud. I'm already prepared to not have a voice once again for a few days.

    I'm confident we will win but will it be the convincing win everybody's expecting? I sure hope so but don't think it will happen. I'm going to remain cautiously optimistic. I remember the buildup to the Colts game and how we came out flat. That memory still haunts me personally.

    I am optimistic that the Ravens will take care of business. But according to Texan fans, the Ravens shouldn't even come to play. They are talking a blow out already.

    I'm not expecting a blow out, i'm expecting a good game. Just hope we play as well as we can.

    They really are though, I've peaked at a few of the Texans forums and they're confident to the point of delusion, I hope its just the high from winning the first playoff game in franchise history.

    Those message board snipets are pretty representative of how things are in Houston.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but they are obnoxious.

    Anything can happen, but you'd swear the Texans were going to play the JV team from St Joe next Sunday, given their overconfidence.
