On offense we need to get the receivers going and score some points with the passing game. On defense we need to put pressure on Schaub early and often.

Gotta say it's shutting down Foster. Not just shutting down Foster. But if we can make the Texans one-dimensional, I think our defensive backs are opportunistic enough, and that we can get enough pressure on Schaub, to create some disruption and chaos. That equals turnovers and a defensive touchdown.

My admiration of Schaub is well-documented, but we put it all on his shoulders, our defense is good enough to force him into mistakes. But we have to contain Foster first.

I went with find a WR. We know about Schaub, their passing attack and Foster, but they were 18th in the league ion 2009 in pass D and this is a better than average shot for us to put up some numbers. Our D will give them problems, I'm gaining confidence on that one. It's time to get the offense going.

Establish the run to set up the PA pass. Simple as it sounds, we get the defense tighenting up in the box and McNab's gonna find Moss and Cooley in space.

All due respect, I don't see us shutting down their O. If we can hold them to under 20, I see that as success. McNabb has to have a good game, able to get some first downs, score 3+ TDs.

Tough task, this is a tough game.
