Alpe d'Huez said:Wow what a thumping by the Pats. If the season ended today... But it doesn't end today. New England has a history of being great in December. Two years ago they demolished the Jets in December on way to a 14-2 season, only to lose to the same Jets, at home in the playoffs. So, let's see what the playoffs bring. But on this night, sheer precision.
Agree with the ESPN guys. Brady for MVP.
Houston has a chance to bounce back, but right now look like Atlanta of the AFC. Take that for what you may.
Houston has big problems that have been exposed. The last 4 or 5 games have shown their weaknesses if anybody was paying attention.
The D backfield is a sieve, there is hardly any pass rush. Teams have figured out if they stop Watt, it is a field day. Any team with a decent passing game will exploit that defense. Joseph still is not well IMO. Losing Cushing was a very big blow, and Barwin is worthless. Doubt he gets resigned next year unless he gets a big pay cut. The guru Wade Phillips has had the curtain opened on him.
Schaub has played in 5 prime time games this year, and they are the 5 worse performances of the year for him. No rating over 80 in any of those games. He is a choker.
Kubiak plays not to lose, and is no motivator. It is a total embarrassment to not only get whacked once on prime time this year, but twice. Inexcusable.
They very easily could have lost to Jax, Det, and they held on with Denver and looked like **** against Chicago. They could easily be 9-4 or 8-5 right now. I would take Atl over Houston because Ryan, White, and Jones would have a field day.
So, add up conservative non-motivating coach, beaten up defense with poor coverage, and a QB that doesn't show up for big games and it does not equal superbowl, even if they get home field throughout.
Would anybody with any brains pick Houston over either Denver or NE, no matter where they played in the playoffs?
Texans are getting raped on Houston sports talk all week.
