VanderBlog: Gobbled up by Green Bay

Posted by voiceofthetexans on October 14, 2012 – 11:11 pm

Maybe we should have seen it coming. A tough game against the Jets, a red-eye flight back to Houston. A short week to tune up for one of the great quarterbacks of the game.

You can sift through the wreckage of the Texans 42-24 loss to Green Bay for hours and still not find all the answers. Yes, Aaron Rodgers torched the defense. Yes, the Texans made several blunders that affected the outcome. Yes, the offense never got rolling.

But something else was missing. The mojo of the previous five outings was extinguished by Rodgers arm but it was more than that.

Or less.

Was it too much to ask to prepare for Green Bay without a regular NFL work week? Did Green Bay want it more? Did the Texans believe they were invincible?

All good questions. And all irrelevant at this point.

We’ve been saying on Texans Radio that the team that beats them will have a hot quarterback making all the right throws. Check.

That the team might be in funk one day and not be able to play out of it.

Check.

That too many self-inflicted wounds would be too much to overcome against the wrong team.

Check.

It’s not that they lost. It’s how they lost. It’s going to be an intense week at Reliant. One more game, then a bye. And that game is against a team they have never beaten. The Ravens come in wounded but with a chance to grab the lead in the AFC. There will be plenty of incentive on both sides of the field.

And plenty of corrections to make this week at the Methodist Training Center before the next outing.

    Comments could not have been expressed better. There is still something missing for our team to go to to next level. What is it? Could it be the whole team playing inspired football as New Orleans did last year. Our team needs to have other players beside the few stars step up when others get hurt like Green Bay did Sunday night

    Hey guys I’m a Ravens fan and I’m not trying to ruffle any feathers hahaha, I’m hoping for a good game though this sunday since it seems pretty clear that the two of us are the class of the AFC

    I know that I sound like a typical “homer” monday morning quarterback when I say this, but the officiating seemed awfully one-sided to me! Non-calls in Green Bay’s favor,(JJ Watt’s Helmet being ripped off by the facemask), and phantom fouls called on the Texans! I know they should be able to adjust and overcome it if they are truly the championship-caliber team we think they are, absolutely!
    ,…but that dirty clip on Cushing makes my blood boil!!! FIE on the jets!
