Sure everyone used the same joke this week, and sure Zach Mettenberger cut his hair already. But Mettenberger knew damn well what he looked like when he walked out of the house this week. (Here is the original picture.) Mettenberger is doing his best Austin hipster at ACL Fest impression. I couldn't pass up on the chance to make him into Matthew McConaughey.
Bud Adams may be gone, but his Army of Darkness still walks this earth with the stolen banner clad in Luv Ya Blue - let's take a look at the matchup with the Texans.
Clowney comin'. Watt and Clowney should be all over rookie Dirk Diggler today.
They call him...Tim:
Zach Mettenberger. As long as he plays like a rookie drafted in the sixth round making his first start, the Texans will be fine.
I believe the proper phrasing is "Clowney's a-comin'"
And hell's comin' with him!!!
Jurrell Casey. He's the only truly legit pass rushing option for the BE-SFs, and with the way Ben Jones and Chris Myers have struggled this season, Casey could harass #HoboQB all game. And when #HoboQB is harassed, bad things happen.
The sack of garbage passing as an ILB corps. Mettenberger is going to rely on short passes and a running game to relieve pressure. If the ILBs can't do something to take those options away, the BESFs might actually keep it close.
Our inside linebackers. Pressure from our d-line is a given, especially if Clowney is at full speed. But Delanie Walker is one of the few weapons the BESFs have. If he can get some targets and move the chains, Cletus might just stop eyeing his sister long enough to get into the game and distract hobo-qb when the Texans have the ball.
Dre and Hopkins will be the combined X-factor today with some big plays that put the game out of reach. That is if the team doesn't find a way to cough up turnovers and surrender 24 points in 3 minutes again.
