I've heard a lot of smack talk from you Houston fans, both here and over at the EMB. Most of it has been pointless drivel based on nothing but pure optimism or some reference to a Denver game from last year.

So here is your chance - make your predictions here, and if you are right, I'll come back and eat my words.

If I'm right however, I'll expect you all to come back and eat your crow.

For the record:

EAGLES WIN, 33 to 17

David Carr - zero sacks with 3 TD passes
Texans Defense - 1 turnover (preferably an interception)
Texans RB's - combined 150 yrds.
Kris Brown - zero misses.

Do this and I am happy win or lose. (I'd rather have a win though)

Man, as much as I'll be screaming my head off for the Texans and hoping with all my heart and soul that they win this one, I'm still skeptical that we can beat a veteran Eagles team when we're starting five rookies in a new system with a new staff. Our o-line is going to have it's hands full no matter how well they play, and my jury eagerly anticipates the evidence presented that we have a legit NFL QB.

That being said, my predictions:

Realist: Eagles 27 Texans 18

Koolaidist: Texans 24 Eagles 17

Starting 5 rookies in critical positions like left tackle, running back, and middle linebacker isn't good. Those guys will make mistakes but it's important for the rest of the team to play better. With that said we have an excellent rookie class whom we will be depending on heavily throughout the season. It's going to be a tough test and Eagles are a good team.

Eagles 17
Texans 10.

I hope wholeheartedly I'm wrong though.

David Carr does not sack himself or have a turnover and commands a late drive to put Kris Brown in position for a chip shot for the game ending field goal.

If that happens this season will look a lot different than 6-10. All it takes is one spark when you have a support system and a coherent method of operation in place such as Kubiak's.

Our second team takes over at the half.

ESPN declares it the year of the mighty Texans and spends the following week playing Texans highlights from the game and discussing their favorite Texans players and plays.

Reggie Bush writes "Wish I was a Texan" on his golden cleats with a Sharpie during a press conference.

Peyton Manning spends 24 hours a day watching Texans film for the next week because he is worried and trying to avoid those scary Mario is coming to get me nightmares that make him wake up in a cold sweat screaming audibles.

Carr turns the ball over 2 or more times and is sacked 3 or more times. Kubiak starts to have second thoughts about whether or not he can fix this 'Carr'. The defense begins to look like a squad with heart with DeMeco, Smith, and Peek leading the way. Basically our inability to go downfield and convert 3rd down dooms the team to another opening game loss.....

Oh but let me make the lead pipe lock prediction...I predict that the homers on the board come back with a littany of excuses for Carr and his inability to play the QB position.....but I have to admit it didnt take much Nostradamus-like skills to predict that....


OT P.S. OMFG those Rascall Flats dudes are horrible. Was KC and the Sunshine band booked already? Does anyone over 14 actually listen to that type of garbage?

I think this will be a game will be decided with penalties. We will jave more penalites, but I think there will be a game changing penality that will lead to a Texan TD. The only TD of the game. Kris will hit 4 out of 5. Donavan will rally back with a late game TD but on his second rally, his new WR makes a critical drop that could have won the game.

Yeah, I am definitely not Mr.Positive around here lately, but I need a big win to get the 2-14 taste out of my mouth. The preseason has shown signs from everyone on the team except Carr, that is the chief reason for my negativity. Personally, I think the guy regressed in the offseason. Especially his release, it has gotten really bad. It's a football not a freakin javelin Carr.

The Texans will win this game. I see 2 teams on a pendulum going in opposite directions. The Texans already hit rock bottom and are now starting to swing back up. Meanwhile the Eagles had a good deal of success the last few years. But I see them slipping again this year. The conference championship games will be out of reach for them for the next few years anyway. They will still win 6-8 games this year, but no more. They didn't seem to dominate anybody last year, even when they won. I feel this is our best chance at a win in our first 4 games. The Texans will shock people in December, but we'll take our lumps the first few games-except for this one. :redtowel:

You had your chance against the Patriots 2 years ago and you lost-get over it. Peyton Manning's window of opportunity is shrinking now. The Colts are still a force but TIME moves on. No team in any sport will be a powerhouse forever.
Yes, I'm Canadian and I'll cheer for my team-the Texans. We can cheer for whoever we want up here, I've met fans of every team except Jacksonville, Cincinnati and Philadelphia. The Flyers have fans up here but not the Eagles. Strange, especially considering that the other NFC East teams have lots of support.

Yeah, because Donovan McNabb isn't just hitting his prime or anything. We didn't just acquire a very young and promising receiver in Stallworth, we don't have another young promising receiver in Reggie Brown... we didn't just retool both offensive and defensive lines and improved them dramatically, we are so obviously on the decline! We don't have awesome special teams or a kicker that is second only to Vinatieri in this league. Puhleeese... Don't be such a homer that you're blind to the fact that your team, while improved, is going to lose this Sunday. The Texans are just overmatched in just about every category and it will show on the field.

That's my belief, now there's always the cliche "Any given Sunday" and that's true as well, so none of us really knows. I just take issue with your "assessment" of the Eagles. They are far from on the downside.

Texans 13
Eagles 3

:yawn:

Remember this:

The Eagles have the best QB in the NFC, and a top 3-4 guy (depending on if you like Palmer better) in the NFL.

We also have the best combination of OL&DL in the NFL. We still have a secondary that features a HOF safety, and 2 pro-bowlers. The 4th guy, Sheldon Brown, is a top 10 CB in the NFL.

This is also our best set of skill players we've had, excluding 2004. And even then, our RB and TE situation is better then in 04.

You look at what actual coaches around the NFC say (not stupid ESPN hacks) and ALL of the coaches say the same thing: Philly is the best team in the NFCE, which in turn is the best division in the NFL.


We were winning NFCE titles and going to the NFCCG with James Thrash as our Z reciever, and Todd Pinkston at X with no Westbrook, no LJ Smith, and no Correll Buckhalter.

In addition to all of that, we have a brighter future then almost any team in the NFL. We have had 2 drafts back to back that most people considerto be the best in the NFL. We have all but 2 starters (M. Lewis, Stallworth) signed long term. We also have replacements for nearly ever old player already on our roster.

You can talk about last year as a down year all you want. But any rational thought would quickly conclude that losing 3 of your top 6 Olineman, an all-pro QB, both starting WRs, a pro-bowl RB, an all-pro CB, a starting DE, and numerous backups would quickly sink any tea - be they the 85 bears or the unbeaten Dolphins.

No sir, we suffered a terrible misfortune of injury, but that does not extend to this year. I'd put only 2 teams in the NFC ahead of us: The Panthers and the Seahawks.

This is a game that the Eagles will dominate. It's also a year in which the Eagles will be a force, as they have been since the year 2000.

This whole "window is shut" is COMPLETE BS.

just look at our lineup, player, age, signed through:

QB - McNabb - 30 - 2010
RB - Westbrook - 27 - 2010
FB - Tapeh - 25 - 2008
WR - Brown - 24 - 2009
WR - Stallworth 25 - year
TE - Smith - 25 - 2007
RT - Runyan - 33 - 2008
RG - Andrews - 23 - 2015
OC - Jackson - 25 - 2013
LG - Herremans - 23 - 2008
LT - Thomas - 32 - 2008

DE - Kearse - 30 - 2009
DT -Patterson - 23 - 2009
DT - Bunkley - 22 - 2011
DE - Howard - 30 - 2011
LB - Jones - 28 - 2008
LB - Trotter - 29 - 2009
LB - McCoy - 22 - 2009
CB - Brown - 26 - 2012
CB - Sheppard - 24 - 2011
SS - Lewis - 25 - 2006
FS - Dawkins - 33 - 2008

Now, look at that list. Nearly every player we have is signed long term. Not only thatm but the team is actually very young.

McNabb has at least 3 good years left, and he's the only guy that can single handidly bring us down.

We already have replacements on our roster for the following old players (with replacement next to name)

RT - Runyan (either Andrews or Herremans takes his spot, with Jean-Gilles at OG)
LT - Thomas (Winston Justice)
DE - Howard/Kearse (Cole - we need one more DE in the draft in the next 2 years)
LB - Jones (Gocong)

That leaves the Eagles with Dawkins to replace within 2 years (clearly a biggy), Trotter iwithin 2 years, one DE within 2 or 3 years, and that's really it.

This of course doesn't even mention the many very talented young players that don't start that I haven't mentioned, like Rayburn, Moats, Considine, Avant, Young, Baskett, Ramsey, etc.

Now, add to that the fact that the Eagles will most likely have the most cap room in the NFL next season, and it's pretty stupid to say our window has shut.

The Eagles are built for the long haul under Heckert, Reid, and Banner. We NEVER sacrifice the future. Ever. That's how the Eagles have been so good over the years. We sign all o our young players long term, and we have the single best cap manager in the NFL, which means we are ALWAYS in the top 5 in cap space.

We have VERY few weaknesses. The vast majority of the team is signed long term. Most older players already have replacements. We have the cap room to sign any player we want. And we draft better then all but a handfull of teams in the NFL.

This team will be a playoff team untill Reid and Banner leave.

predictions are futile, lets just strap it on & see who is the best team this coming Sunday. I'll take no shame if the Texans fall short the Eagles have to still be considered an elite NFC team, the thing we hope the Texans have the edge at is home field advanatage, don't forget the all important cheerleaders too and this Denver style offense. Last I checked in 05 the Eagles lost to the Broncos 49-21 :whip:

Been on this board during the week and feel it is only fair if I give a prediction.

First off for Eagles fans - Andy Reid doesn't have a lot of 1st game success over his tenure. Each time it is something different but it I can't rule out a close game.

I am not sure that Houston has enough of their offense in yet to make sufficient adjustment to take advantage of weakness they will find in the Eagles defense.

Also - and yes it is a prediction - I see the Eagles scoring on their first offensive drive. Hey they have a history of coming out strong, then going mush in the second quarter and coming back to life at the end of the 3rd and looking strong in the 4th.

Eagles - 23
Texans - 10

Texans - 30

David Carr has a bad first half, but the Texans will make adjustments and make it close. Mcnabb will score a touchdown at the end to pull out the win.

I don't think either offense will find much success in the passing game.

Chad Stanley gets the game ball.

Last I checked in 05 the Eagles lost to the Broncos 49-21

This would be relevant if the Eagles were playing the 2005 Broncos. But they aren't.

Other things that have no real bearing on this game:

- Andy Reid's record in season opening games. It's not good, but the two wins he does have were BIG wins.

- The teams' respective records last year. Last year is over.

Things that do have a bearing on the game:

- The talent levels of the two teams. And Texans fans, I hate to break it to you, but the Eagles are definitely ahead here.

Eagles have clear edge at QB, OL, DL, and the secondary.

I'd give the Eagles a slight advantage at RB, and yes, we all know that Westbrook is injury prone. But that has no bearing on this game.

LB seems about even.

The only position where the Texans appear to have an edge is WR, and even that, based on last year's numbers is not huge.

Kubiak may turn out to be a good coach. He comes from a successful team in Denver. However, the edge in coaching has to go to the Eagles, as their coaches have won division titles and been to a Super Bowl, plus the team should be more familiar with all the schemes.

With all that taken into account, I see a final score of:

Eagles 27, Texans 13

:yawn:

Remember this:

The Eagles have the best QB in the NFC, and a top 3-4 guy (depending on if you like Palmer better) in the NFL.

We also have the best combination of OL&DL in the NFL. We still have a secondary that features a HOF safety, and 2 pro-bowlers. The 4th guy, Sheldon Brown, is a top 10 CB in the NFL.

This is also our best set of skill players we've had, excluding 2004. And even then, our RB and TE situation is better then in 04.

You look at what actual coaches around the NFC say (not stupid ESPN hacks) and ALL of the coaches say the same thing: Philly is the best team in the NFCE, which in turn is the best division in the NFL.


We were winning NFCE titles and going to the NFCCG with James Thrash as our Z reciever, and Todd Pinkston at X with no Westbrook, no LJ Smith, and no Correll Buckhalter.

In addition to all of that, we have a brighter future then almost any team in the NFL. We have had 2 drafts back to back that most people considerto be the best in the NFL. We have all but 2 starters (M. Lewis, Stallworth) signed long term. We also have replacements for nearly ever old player already on our roster.

You can talk about last year as a down year all you want. But any rational thought would quickly conclude that losing 3 of your top 6 Olineman, an all-pro QB, both starting WRs, a pro-bowl RB, an all-pro CB, a starting DE, and numerous backups would quickly sink any tea - be they the 85 bears or the unbeaten Dolphins.

No sir, we suffered a terrible misfortune of injury, but that does not extend to this year. I'd put only 2 teams in the NFC ahead of us: The Panthers and the Seahawks.

This is a game that the Eagles will dominate. It's also a year in which the Eagles will be a force, as they have been since the year 2000.

The NFC East is not the best. It is maybe the most competitive. All four teams in the division seem fairly equal, but I have not heard anyone claiming the Eagles are the best in the division. I hear people say the Eagles will surprise which is completely different.

I ahve been hearing a lot from people picking the Eagles to re-claim the NFC East and are the best. They are not equal to any of those teams. I guess we will get a better picture on the 17th when we play the Giants but the Giants defense looks pretty weak. The Redskins will suck. The Cowboys are over-rated on Offense but their D looks good.

What really, do they have?

An old QB that can't move. No replacement in sight.

2 old WRs, with no replacements, 1 of which is the biggest cancer in the history of the sport.

An OL that rivals the Texans in ineptitude.

They have a good defense, and that's it.


The Giants are a good team, and will give us a run for our money, but they have some serious flaws as well. Terrible DBs, no DTs, completely over rated LBs, poor LT play, etc.

If you really think we are running the same plays, with 2 new starting WRs, a new starting center, a new FB, and a new LG (since he was suspended) you don't know much about Reid.

We litterally changed our whole offense in 2004 to suit Owens and keep his mouth shut.

Now that he's gone, we'll go back to the 2003 version, which if you look scored just as many points without Owens, and was one of the best RUSHING teams in the NFL.

Dunta's a good player. He'll be able to negate one of them for the most part.

The problem is because of how we use LJ and Westbrook, the other CB is going to be left on an island (otherwise you are singling up on Smith and Westbrook, and they will simply burn you if you do that). That's a huge missmatch in our favor.

BTW, DS will be starting, and he'l get a lot of PT. We may have just picked him up, but he's played in the WCO before, knows most of the terminology, and is playing the X WR position, which uses limited pass routes any way. He'll run a bunch of fly patters, deep posts/outs etc, and probably have a WR screen or two thrown his way.

You got a guy that is really fast in Donte, but he has not been there for that long so i don't think he will be that big of a force for this game, and his hands are not the best, and i think we can handle Reggie Brown, and I also think that Westbrook will be held. Your DB's are good, but Moulds looks like he still has some gas in the tank, and Andre can dominate if giving the opportunity (no dump off passes)
The OL has some knew faces to it and our Coaching staff is a hell of alot better then it was last year. This is not the same team as last year I don't think we will get blown out I think it will be a close game, but I do not count us out of this game.

I'm just going to say this so you guys aren't too dissapointed after you lose on Sunday:

The Texans have no chance in this game. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

It won't even be a competative game. The Eagles will win by at least 13+ points, and the score won't even reflect the butt kicking the Texans will have recieved. The Eagles have the advantage in every aspect of the game, from STs, to line play, to QBing, to WRs vs DBs.

Have fun, but don't get your hopes up for a win, cause it aint gunna happen.

Wow! I see someone who may be crying on Sunday.

The truth hurts, doesn't it?

Ignorance is bliss, particularly if you are a Texans fan. Hey, at least Carr will have a ton of time to study the new offense after he ends up on IR. That way, some other lame excuse for a QB ca get killed for the next 15 games.

My prediction....If Houston wins, we won't see you post here again.

Bye-Bye.

:brickwall Since when did the Texans get 14 points better than the Eagles? A new coach and Mario Williams? I think not.

why don't you thumbtacks worry about your rookie QB's interceptions and passes batted down for lousy throwing motion. I would think would keep you up nights knowing your idiot owner wants Vince to start this Sunday and every Sunday after:crutch:

BTW, Brady Quinn would probably be a good choice with the first pick in the draft next year. He's way better then Carr.

Hey, it's a scary place to come play us. We have beat teams over the years that should have swamped us. That only means that our guys are the best and have just never had the coach to get them there.

So, all I have to say to anyone looking to think those Eaglets are going to beat us, I hope you have brought your triple A game, cuz you are coming to our home. I'm not sure what we should call it yet, but as we bury you all, as you come, we will come up with a name. Get ready! You are now meeting with the HOUSTON TEXANS!!!!!!!:cowboy1:

1st, our WRs are just as god as yours. Moulds is completely over rated on this board. The guy just isn't the same player he once was.

DS and Brown > AJ and Moulds - even though AJ is the best player of the 4.

Besides, do our WRs lineup against your WRs? No, they go against your DBs, and we OWN that matchup, just like our DBs OWN the matchup against your recievers.

The Texans are guna get KILLED come sunday. It's gunna be ugly. Carr is going to need a stretcher before the first half. That patheti OL is going to get him killed.

I was the person that started this thread. I'm watching the game at a friends house with some other buddies of mine, so don't expect me to be on here as soon as it ends. That said, I'll be here sunday night to gloat about how badly we beat you.

As I said already, Donte' already has played in the West Coast Offense. He already knows the terminology - the problems come from guy who've never been in it before. He also plays the very simple X reciever position, which only requires him to run about a half dozen routes.

Put it this way, the day he came here he siad he already knew 60% of the play book, he's been working with McNabb long after practice every day to get the timing down, he has an abreviated playbook to learn for this game according to Reid, and he has already been named the starter for Sunday. He's ready to go. Discount him at your own risk. And BTW, I really don't think that AJ is THAT much better then Donte'. He's bigger and has better hands. Donte is faster, quicker, and is better after the catch. And Brown is way better then Moulds at this point.

Plus I just love how you just assume your pathetic excuse for a #2 CB is just going to "handle" Reggie Brown when the likes of Sean Springs couldn't handle him - and that was with McMahon throwing the rock.

And Westy? Please. There is only 1 guy on your team that can cover him, and his name is Dunta Robinson. Basically, unless you have a cloaning machine, your going to get lit up in the passing game.

Again, please excuse me if AJ doesn't scare me at all. We dominated Randy Moss with Culpepper lobbing him the ball, and TO with a pro-bowl Garcia. Carr to AJ is a walk in the park compared to other guys we have shut down.

You have no chance in this game, the Texans are simply over matched in every facet of the game.

What in the flying F does some TLC BS and a crappy Cowgirls team have to o with this game?

Dmac is gunna light up that poor excuse for a defense. Our D line is going to have a field day pulverizing poor wittle David Carr. Hell, you might as well not even start the guy if you want him in the league long term, because that craptastic Oline of yours is going to get him killed.

You really think their O-line is going to be bad? I doubt it. They changed up their O-line with Kubiak's thinking. Flanagan is also on the team now and he is a great player. The style of O-line they have now is that they go after the first defensive player that breaks into the zone and that shuts it down. Kube knows what he is doing. We will get some sacks in but Carr will not be a jive bag as much as he was in the previous years.

Rookie at LT against Howard. Not a single player at the same position as last year. Low talent to begin with.

The OL requires more time then any other unit to develope chemistry. 10 games from now they may be fine, but tomorow Kearse, Howard, Cole, Walker, Patterson, Bunkley, and the rest of the boys are gunna have a field day.

A couple weeks with a QB does not mean he has the time down, and you also have to think along with the QB like if a QB is getting pressured and scrambles out to the left or the right he has to know where the location of the ball will be thrown how hard he will throw it. Our D will be better just cuase the coaching is a heck of alot better our D will apply more force to their QB becuase our Defense coach likes to blitz making it easier when the d gets to the QB. You can not say Brown is better then Moulds everybody in the whole NFL if they had a choice out of Moulds and Brown for one season they would choose the older wiser vet who still has the abilty to make the D worry.


Also I am 1000 % sure you will be here if you win, but if you lose i would be surprised if you came by even once, and if you did you would probably only say we got lucky it would never happen again, but if yall do win I will be here congrating you on your win and I would eat my crow. Overall I would not be hurt if we lose cuase infact you do have a good team(don't know about super bowl team as some people are talking), but you would be hurt cuase you lost to the so called stinking Texans.

Considering he types of passes Donte will recieve as th X WR, it really ISN'T a big deal. He's not the guy running slants. He runs fly patterns and deep posts about 70% of the time. That's all about the QB just letting the WR run uner the ball.

Our D will be better just cuase the coaching is a heck of alot better our D will apply more force to their QB becuase our Defense coach likes to blitz making it easier when the d gets to the QB.

Your D is starting HOW MANY ROOKIES? Long term they might be better, but it's still a young, inexperienced unit with gaping holes in the secondary.

You can not say Brown is better then Moulds everybody in the whole NFL if they had a choice out of Moulds and Brown for one season they would choose the older wiser vet who still has the abilty to make the D worry.

Can't say I agree with you. I'll take Brown, who is FAR more athletic and explosive, and PROVED last year he can be the go to WR over the aging, washed up Moulds who can only be a secondary option and has no big play abillity left.

Also I am 1000 % sure you will be here if you win, but if you lose i would be surprised if you came by even once, and if you did you would probably only say we got lucky it would never happen again, but if yall do win I will be here congrating you on your win and I would eat my crow.

I'll be here win or lose. That said, we will not lose, so you can always keep claiming I wouldn't have shown up had we lost.

Yes are D is young, but all i can see is just 2 rookies starting for us Mario and Ryans, and ryans and mario have looked good so far. Plus you might say preseason is just preseason, but when our #1s where on the field with the othern teams #1s we looked pretty good. So don't over look us.

You want to talk about preseason?

Our 1st team offense scored on every possetion, except one. Our 1st team defense surrendered a TOTAL of 3 points.

Look, if the stars align, and Zeus shoots lightning bolts out of his arse to smite McNabb, and Jim Brown becomes 25 years old again and signs with the Texans, and Kubiac sells his soul to Satan himself, then the Texans might win.

Even though this thread has long since crossed the line into being ridiculous, I'll throw out my prediction. The Eagles will probably take an early lead 7-3 after the 1st quarter but won't score another TD, our defense is solid when they get their backs to the wall and the Eagles one dimensional offense won't be able to punch the ball in the endzone on the ground and will have to settle for a few FGs, meanwhile the Texans offense will settle in, put up 120+ rushing yards on the day and Carr will do enough passing the ball to move the chains and put up some points. McNabb will have the better day statistically but our DLine will pressure him into one big mistake that will help turn the tide.

Texans win 17-16, anyone predicting much higher of a score in this game is either drastically overestimating one or both of the offenses or is completely unaware of the defenses that are going to be playing.

Your first score had your confidence high for about 7 minutes. However, my Eagles should have never allowed your team to score period. I want you suckas to feel this loss after all of the junk you talked for the last couple of weeks. My Eagles are serious, mean, and the best team in the NFC and you felt it today baby!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cmon now, we talked the talk, now its time to walk the walk. We played a good first half and should have been leading at the break, but after that the Eagles were certanly the better team. Good luck to ya the rest of the season, and give Peyton some bruises.

You can start with being a gracious winner and by being a little more humble. And enjoy your victory with some damn class. If that isn't too much of a stretch for you.

You guys obviously have a better team than us. However, I don't think you can criticize us for talking smack, even after coming off a 2-14 season. Fans are supposed to be optimistic. The Eagles played a great game. May they go on and lose to the Cowboys. And Giants. But you can beat the Redskins. :)

I predicted the Texans would win, the Eagles were the better team today. Stallworth looked great, McNabb and Westie looked great, and you absolutely beat us up in the trenches. Good game and good luck to the Eagles. Try and beat the cowpies for us please.

A Philly fan gracious and humble?


The same fans that cheered when Michael Irvin got his career ending injury in their home stadium as he was carted off the field?

An Eagles fan with class?

It was nothing surprising. The Eagles, IMO, are a legit Super Bowl contender and the Texans are learning a complex system under a rookie head coach. Kudos, though I'm sure my Giants will get revenge. :spy:

Eagles 24

Texans 13

However, if we see some improvement on both sides of the ball (solid protection and an effective pass rush), I will be thrilled!


Sadly, I was pretty close on the score but extremely disappointed as to our protection and pass rush...

I was praying that we came back and won the battle. Your team look excellent on your first drive. I thought we would see that the whole game. The Eagles D made the changes to not get burned on the passes.

In saying this. I have no smore smack talk here and enjoyed being here for the week. You have a world class team, and please support your team to make a well deserved playoff run. I absolutely think your team will be there.

Thanks guys!!

Widening the gap from my last pick:

Close but no cigar. They could have if they did not kneel on the ball. Dang it. :shades:

D-mac ticked me off today. He had guys open and then he pitter-pats his feet and then throws a dead ball. Ugh! First week rust... hopefully it shakes off for next week.... gonna beat those Gnats.

I'm sure its not much consolation to any Texans fans, but I'm glad the Eagles played them in week one rather than later in the season.

I'm here to eat my crow.

McNabb is awesome, of course, and Stallworth looks like a great addition. The combination is terrific.

I hope your team really is as good as they looked in Week One.

Congratulations and good luck!

Being a realist...I'm with Kaiser and corrosion on this...

Halftime...Hou-10 Phi-7

Final...Hou-17 Phi-14

The only other option I see is a one sided victory either way...
Didn't bank on Stallworth...

Here's to next week and the Colts...

I actually have more confidence in a Texans win at Indy than I did with the Eagles, go figure...

Good game Eagles, you deserved the win.

As was I. Carr looked amazing on that first drive. And that pass to Moulds caught everyone offguard. Im not sure if Lewis was supposed to cover him or not.

We looked terrible, and you looked great. Had me scared to death early after our 3 and out :p

I know it's late, but I'm here for my serving of crow as well. Just finished watching the game since I was out of town for a couple of days. I guess I put my foot in my mouth with the comments I made about the Eagles. You guys still have a powerhouse team. I spoke without thinking, so I'm here to take my medecine.
Best of luck the rest of the way, especially against the Cowboys.

Now that my temporary ban has been lifted, I am here as I said I would be.

The better team won on Sunday. It seems that the emotional lift in the first quarter wore out for the Texans and the superior talent and greater chemistry of the Eagles prevailed.

Good luck from here on out Texans. You will only get better as the season progresses.

Good game and the crows not too bad either - :D

We looked good on the first drive and green the rest of the way. It was a tougher game than I had hoped for and our running game and defense forgot to show up making it a long day on both sides of the ball.

Hope to see you guys around again in the future when our team is clicking together a bit better for a better game.

The day before the game untill this morning.

I guess my smack talk was a bit too much for one of the mods. :crying:

In any case,your Texans came out firing. Good for them. Get Carr some protection, give your rooks a season to mature, and I expect to see you guys in the bowl 2-3 years from now.

JB99 must admit your guys realy put it to us in the second half. good luck on your season think y'all can take your div. this year again. Wash. seems to have a Off. problem right now and dal. has a QB battle brewing. NY Manning still not his older brother(yet). Again good luck.
