    Default Week 9: @ Texans

    I think our defense will keep Houston's offense in check and we will control the ball.

    This is a division game so I expect it to be a lot closer than that

    He's pretty good the Colts shouldn't underestimate him because he's a rookie at least I hope they don't.

    They've turned over 10% of their roster. Added 3 running backs. Wow.

    === Texans place Cushing on IR, sign 5 to active roster ===

    Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Houston Texans placed linebacker Brian
    Cushing on injured reserve Monday.

    Cushing will miss the rest of the season after suffering a fractured fibula
    and a torn lateral collateral ligament in his left knee on Oct. 20 at Kansas
    City.

    The Texans also signed five players to the active roster: running backs Ray
    Graham, Dennis Johnson and Deji Karim and linebackers Tavares Gooden and Jeff
    Tarpinian.

    The running backs provide insurance with Arian Foster and Ben Tate battling
    hamstring and rib injuries.

    They are very out of sync, but teams always seem to "find their rhythm" against us, plus it's a division game. It'll be close. Indy *should* win this. But that's why they play the games. Will be interested to see how we handle the loss of Wayne, and integrate Whalen and TRich into the passing game. Our O has to make adjustments.

    Our O will adjust OK but I'm worried that the defenses don't have to plan so much for Reggie. Who do they have to scheme for now?

    Andrew Luck. And you can't scheme for him, he's too good. As long as he's around, he'll get the ball where it needs to go.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Maybe, Pep hasn't really given me much confidence in him yet. One thing is for sure, the Texans won't be able to prepare for those adjustments as they will be the first team to face them.

    It'll be nice if Werner can come back. He was starting to get the feel of playing 3-4 and was looking better.

    I don't see us putting a lot of points on the board while we're trying to adjust to the loss of Reggie.

    We should still win this one, though.

    The Colts will never over look an opponent with Pagano as HC. We're rested and Luck should have a solid night

    I would argue that San Diego was possibly overlooked.

    San Diego was definently overlooked, though I think they're a pretty solid team as well, and could be last playoff team.

    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    The Texans know if they do not win this game the season is definitely over. If they win it could kick off a possible win streak with winnable games coming up. Reliant Stadium will be rocking with Keenum making his first home start. It is fun living down here and hearing the talk on the radio everyday.

    The Colts seem to play to the level of their opponents. Close, ugly game.

    21-16 - another 4th quarter comeback for Luck.

    This one is kind of tough to predict. On one hand, we are clearly a better team than them at this point. On the other hand, they always treat our visits down there like its the Super Bowl. They will be pumped up for this game because it's about all they have left to look forward to this season. Plus I am a little nervous to see how the offense looks without Reggie Wayne. This is the biggest on the field challenge that Luck has faced in his career, and he will no doubt miss his always-reliable HOF security blanket. Guys like T.Y., DHB, and Fleener must step up NOW.

    Pacerdude brings up a good point about the Colts playing to their level of opponents. We struggled to beat Oakland, lost to Miami and San Diego, yet beat SF, Seattle, and Denver. As much as I hope that the Colts go down there and completely embarrass Houston, I think that the first game without Wayne and the fact that the Texans will treat this game like its the Super Bowl will mean that it's a close game.

    Texans are desperate, at home, and playing in prime time. They lose, their season is over. They win, they are still in the mix. We are going to get their best shot.
