What the Texans fans are saying about us..

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; If we go in with our wig on right we get the W, if for no other reason than we're at home. If, on the other hard, we start slow or our defense has a brain cramp...we might be in ...

I believe the Domefield advantage is going to be the difference. You know GW is going throw some formations at the Texans that they haven't seen before and the crowd noise is going to make it hard for Schaub to change the plays.

Short of an injury to Brees, I don't give the Texans much of a chance of beating us Sunday.

I like the Texans, even more when their defense comes to life. Our tackling is like choking down sour milk. We can make this game a lot more competitive than it really has to be. Saints defense will make the difference...one way or another.

I always try and keep things civil. Yeah you have a lot people out there who never leave the home board.
I really get tired of listening to the homers stoke each other.....it's kind like sex with your sister......it just ain't right!!
I know the weakness's on my team and I dont mind admitting them.

Be careful, you're starting to sound like a life-long Saints fan with statements like that.
Happily, though, we haven't had to say things like that too often in recent years.

Ok, read their comments, and I especially like this one by peytonmanning18 when they were giving him a really hard time over there:

"Well I thought I would come here for some expert opinion on how to handle being a fan of a last place team. You have a lot of experience so I thought I'd come to the best."

With that said, I am little concerned about this game, but I wonder if it's just because I was at the Saints/Texans preseason game where they played their starters "forever", and we played our 3rd stringers against them??? Seems like Kubiak wants to beat the Saints so bad that he would pull out all of the stops to do so, even in preseason, and THAT may just be his downfall. I know I live over here in the Houston area, but still can't bring myself to cheer for them, even when we're not playing them.....they're just a really hard team to love!

Life is too short to be miserable....make changes while you can!

I am having a hard time figuring out the Texans. They'll be missing Foster, whatever that means. It seems like there's not a definitive personality/style for either offense or defense. That may be good for them, but the preseason game didn't impress me. They've played Indiana State for the Terminally Disabled at home and struggled against a Miami team that does less with more than any other in the league - Reggie got 4 plays?

The fact that the line is at 4 now is more due to a Schaub factor than anything.

Despite all this, I can't think of a matchup problem that the Texans pose that we wouldn't have with any other team. GW bringing 6 40% of the time is going to wear Schaub out. I don't think the Texans coaching staff realizes just how fast and varied the blitz stunts are. Will Schaub be able to recognize them?

They have a lot of talented receivers and a very good TE (good luck Harper)
They have a great running game (good luck D-Line)
They run a 3-4, which we struggle against, and have Mario Williams (Good luck O-Line)

That being said, I think we're going to win.

Is it possible for a Saints fan to think any team doesn't have a shot to beat us? I don't think it's in our DNA...we've been hurt too many times.
