    Niners have a Super-Bowl appearance on a silver platter. Jordan Love and then either Mayfield or Goff.

    Why not the Texans? Why not now? Game planning and execution will be keys . I believe. Let the Ravens make the mistakes.

    Week 1 was Patterson's first game as center. The Deiter and Juice combo will have more success against Price/madubuike stunts than Patterson and Jones.

    Ravens practically on 3 weeks of rest. That’s almost a month of non contact.

    Ugh running quarterbacks.

    For comparison: (23/24)
    Lamar Jackson: 148 rushing attempts
    Mahomes: 75 rushing attempts
    CJ Stroud: 39 rushing attempts

    Everyone is accounted for defensively; except the running quarterback.

    Instead of devoting that one spy to the quarterback......I prefer the
    maintaining of the pocket predominantly. Containment.

    My philosophy is that running quarterbacks feel uncomfortable
    in the pocket for most of the game. They prefer to get out of the
    pocket and run while scanning the field.
    ----------------

    Game should be dry and in the 20's by game time.

    1) Texans should rely on short passes in the flats. (Ball won't be swollen but wind will knock it down)
    2) Run. Run. Run. (meaning practice and implement some
    Double, Triple tight end packages as a wrinkle into the game)
    Our run game needs more power added to it. (Xtra lineman? Maybe in the backfield)
    3) Deep throws every so often to keep the D honest (around 5 for the game)
    4) Containment of Lamar Jackson in a pocket. Don't give him
    wide open lanes that he can drive a mack truck through.
    We don't want "Tuck and Run"......we want "Stop, Drop and Roll"

    This will be a good game to get Dameon Pierce about 18 carries.
    Between Singletary and Pierce, it should be 4 yard carries and a cloud
    of dust all game. Welcome to the playoffs in January.

    I'll put money on it if the Texans win they move the AFC championship game to Saturday afternoon.
