Reliant Stadium an unfamiliar place

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 12, 2012 – 3:16 pm

You can count on one hand the number of current Green Bay Packers who have played at Houston’s Reliant Stadium.

Only one was with the team the first and only time the Packers played at Reliant Stadium in 2004, and that was WR Donald Driver. Coincidentally, that was also a prime-time Sunday night game.

The other three are veterans who played in Houston while employed by other teams.

C Jeff Saturday has the most experience in the stadium, having played several years for the Indianapolis Colts, an AFC South rival of Houston’s who would travel to Reliant Stadium every season.

Also, CB Charles Woodson played against the Texans in Houston in 2004 as a member of the Raiders, and DL Ryan Pickett did the same in ’05 while with the Rams.

RB Cedric Benson played in Houston as a member of the Bengals in 2008 and in the AFC playoffs last season, but Benson is now on injured reserve.

    Will the season be over if the Pack loses this game? The division games are in November / December. However, it is becoming hard to believe that the Pack is better than .500 club. The loss to the Colts better be the final wake up call for the Packers.

    Sandia, you can’t say it’s over technically, only six weeks in. But realistically, 2-4 is a heckuva hole to dig out of…it makes winning the division a sort of pipe dream unless the rest of the NFC north teams experience some serious trouble before December (possibly excluding Detroit, now at 1-3; all they have to do is stay in trouble, not get there). From 2-4, an 8-2 run gets GB a 10-6 record, which is more often than not good enough for a wild card spot, but usually not good enough to win a division. Upsetting Houston with a win and getting to 3-3 changes the picture dramatically.

    Houston may be overrated. Not saying they are, but may be. You see some interesting trends in games they lost last season – first being that in four of the six losses, Foster was contained nicely by opposing Ds (two times late in the season, after they lost Schaub, Foster got 100+ yards in losses). In one interesting home loss, 25-20 to Oakland on October 9, 2011, Foster was held to 68 yards on 22 carries (3.1), AND…Janikowski made FGs for Oakland from 55, 54, 50, and 42 yards, with no misses. Think Crosby can do that? He might have to for GB to win.

    As a Packer fan of 40 years, I fear that the ‘Pack is gonna get its butt kicked today against the Texans. Unless Capers can instill some pride and effort into the defense, the Texans will run the ball down their throat and then, when they are tired out, pass them to death. This looks like a lost year for the Cheeseheads!!! Hope somebody can stir up some emotion and desire in this group of underachievers!

    Just a’wonderin’~ IF Coach McCarthy remembers some of the things that Donald “The Driver” did on the field, with his “dancing abilities”. Wasn’t he a “go to guy”, before~and why just put the “old guy” on the shelf now? He’s in better physical condition than most of the “roster”~knows the “Plays”, and can “execute”. Get “D” back into the games, and let him lead the “Pack” back to the “Play offs”. Like the ad says: “You want the NFL, go to the NFL”~ You want ta win: GO to the Winner!
