If Desir cant go, it would most likely be Ya-sin on Hopkins. Not sure how much I really like that.

Oof... going to be a long day in our defensive backfield.

 

Even if we double Hopkins, the other 1 on 1s will be painful to watch.

We were down players when we went into KC and the general fan temperature was grim. 

 

How'd that turn out?

 

Less talented wrs.

I am not worried about Hopkins. He will get his yards. It’s the other three WR. As long as Desir goes I think we will be ok. That still allows us to show a lot of different looks. If he can’t go that’s where where we have to go vanilla. Watson will kill us if that’s the case. As much as we make fun of Wilson it’s times like the last two weeks where he is very valuable and can play all DB positions. Having Leonard back helps not having Moore.

 

The injury list doesn’t look to bad actually. Reich said Campbell is expected back at practice next week.

Houston has 4 really good WR who can run routes. If you go back to KC their WR were just going to a spot on the field and were not running routes. Made them easier to defend in man. Plus Houston is healthy.

Not that it has to be said but with Hooker being out, which isn't surprising, is big too with all of Houston's weapons.

If our pass rush doesn't get home we could end up seeing some really annoying scrambles/deep bombs from Watson.

OK. Well, I remember the talk of how Mahomes was going to carve us up.

He kinda did, but we limited his possessions.

Even without are best corners playing, I'm sure are deep cover 2 zone will be just fine.

 

If we're gonna do that, we need Leonard to mirror Watson

I am actually glad it looks like they are going to keep hooker out another week. Let him get a week of full practice in.

is he officially out? all the reports I'm seeing are listing him as doubtful.  I'd say odds are he doesn't play but I don't know if its official that he's out yet

Officially hes doubtful, but the chances of him playing slim

Being listed as doubtful usually means the player will not suit up for the game

The problem with both Desir and Moore our is it limits the looks you give Watson. If Desir can go I think we will be ok. Taylor mentioned how Moore helped him prepare for the KC game. It does take away the blitz from Moore though.

 Good point about Moore. Maybe Okereke, Leonard, Taylor, Wilson or Tell will help with the loss of Moore.

    If Desir can play man on Hopkins, they can double Fuller. Or visa versa. 
    Wilson does a good job with TEs. Willis is playing like he’ll be there for a long time.

     Speaking of SS, I wonder how Geathers will play? All of the secondary individuals have made some great plays and watching that KC game, they were on on their receivers like white on rice.

     I know these guys are a lot better but, the secondary may surprise some people Sunday.

     Keep Watson, Fuller, Hyde and Hopkins on the bench. They can’t hurt you there.

My point is, last week it was the QB. This week it's the WR's. Fact is, any fan can point out where we are lacking every week. It's all good, I just see patterns around here. 

 

Regardless of who was missing on D, we got it done last week in one of the 3 toughest houses in the NFL. This week, at home, I am excited to watch our o-line push the run game. They are fully healthy, and are poised to put a squeeze on the division early.

Nelson has a hip issue. But looks like he will go. Desir being questionable is good.

 

 

UGH NOT BIG Q!!  How do we always end up with more players on the Injury List AFTER our bye weeks than before?!

Big trouble this week also when did Big Q hurt his hip he is listed as a game time call too.

He will be fine. He is listed as questionable and not doubtful so that is a good sign. Unless he has some kind set back don’t expect him to sit.

Well they do practice. The injury report isn’t bad. 2 of the 3 players ruled out have been out for weeks. Half those guys on the list are listed as rest. The question will be how effective Desir will be. Reich said he felt they had enough DB so that probably says Desir plays.

I think it's fine to look at match ups as objectively as possible. I'll always point out areas where we might struggle and vice versa. 

As for the good stuff, I think we have the coaching edge and JB could have himself a game through the air. But it's reasonable to think we might struggle in certain areas, especially with our injuries.

I suspect Nelson was basically just letting him rest like Houston.  Reich also mentioned since Moore and Desir did not practice all week everyone got snaps so they will be prepared.

Well we will see. Not the end of world  if we lose to Houston, but probably  won't  win division

I thought roby was going to be our a few weeks. Unless O’Brien is playing games this is weird. Their DB backs are beat up like ours. I just give Watson the edge over JB to take advantage of that.

 

 

That Greg manz that is out for texans. Is he a starter?

Other than 1 possession in Q1, Mahomes didn't really give us very much trouble.  We got a lot of pressure on him and slowed him down with an ankle injury.  That whole game was a great piece of defensive football.

    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder. 
    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
    • Yes, love the limited stuff from Harris. I really want to see more routes from him, but overall, love what he's doing. I'd love for him to be a long term answer at slot if Campbell moves to Z.    I'm up in the air on specs. I need to see him hit some long ones, as well as some additional clutch kicks. Glasgow, like I said, I just don't expect much from. Doubt he's ever a contributor on D, but if he kills it on ST, I'm happy.    A buddy of mine (a Ball State grad/fan), thinks Pinter develops into a RT, and the Colts will eventually move Smith over to LT (when AC retires), and let Pinter take RT. I don't know about all that, but I do agree Pinter might develop into more than we think.    I think Pittman will develop into a long term and consistent WR for us. I know he's just starting to emerge, but he just has the look. Good/willing blocker, good hands, etc.. He might not be the 50/50 guy I want, but I also think he might be better at in-stride catching than I thought.    JT, I think he'll be fine once he gets acclimated and use to the run blocking scheme. I don't want to diminish his talent, but most RBs should be able to be successful behind our OL, and he's better than most.    Blackmon is the most interesting to me. He's always been a hammer which I love. He's struggled though in coverage in college, and as we saw, got burnt deep a few games ago. Not sure if he's too aggressive forward, or just struggles with coverage and range. I hope it's just aggressiveness. It definitely helped him when they moved him from CB to S in college, but at the same time, Utah ran a ton of man, which we do not. Love most of what I've seen thus far. I just hope it's not a case where teams get film on him, and start testing him deep a lot. We've been fortunate to play some bad Os early that simply don't go deep a bunch. Will be interesting to follow.
    • It's Rivers he will play, the dude is made of steel  . He played with a torn ACL.
    • I just wish I knew whether it's turf toe or not.
