Is anyone else excited about this game? Its going to be nice to see the starters play for more than a couple plays. This will kind of give us a feel for how they're going to look this next year. And as an added bonus it'd be wonderful to beat Dallas at their home field.

Cowboys v. Texans: What to Look for in Tonight's Fake Game (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/2008/08/22/cowboys-v-texans-what-to-look-for-in-tonights-fake-game/)

Be sure to click on the first link in the post because it cracks me up.

I'm also hoping that they continue to play composed on the road...they need to win more road games next year.

3. The Running Game-Who's The Man? With Ahman Green hurting himself one play into the preseason, only rookie third round pick Steve Slaton has looked particularly promising in limited minutes


Not sure I can completely agree with that. I think D. Walker has shown promising and I kind of wonder why he didn't play last week and I hope to see him tonight.

Slaton will be the starter by the Pitt game IMHO, I think D Walker just won't let the coaches cut him, he stays healthy and he produces, I like the guy.

As for the original question, I am EXTREMELY excited about Texans football tonight.

In a numbers game, the type of performance Walker showed preseason against backups was just okay--but very limited touches. I think they try to sneak him back on the practice squad despite the Texans saying they worry that he won't clear waivers.

I decided to stick this thread, to make headway for the gameday thread.

I'm pumped about this game. We always play pretty bad in Dallas, but I have confidence we'll do ok. It's a good matchup against a 3-4 defense for our starters to get ready for Pittsburgh.

that's a risky tactic if that's really what they're thinking. i'm not a huge Walker fan but I do think he's improved. I just wonder if the "laying low so nobody sees him" technique isn't a bit of a stretch. perhaps there's something that we're not getting to see about him or maybe about the other young guys. i can't help but think maybe they should be playing him as much as Taylor and Slaton and limit Brown's reps since they "know what kind of football player they have" with Brown.

I do think Walker has shown enough not to clear waivers but it would depend on other teams RB situations and I have no idea what else is going on in the league from that standpoint.

oh, and yeah, super duper excited too.

Go Texans.

Well I am also factoring in that we can't count on Ahman Green, who knows what we got with Chris Brown does he show up and produce and battle Slaton for the starting job or does he get a splinter and miss mulitple games? And then there is Taylor.

IF any two can distinguish themselves between now and the start of the season, than I think the third back is Walker. In this scenario in my head, Green is not playing because of injury, shocker I know. And very possible either Taylor or Brown is as well. Sorry to be pessimistic, but if history is an indicator, I would rather be pleasantly suprised than being let down.

Five and a half hours to go. :)

Yes, it's preseason...but watching the Texans beat the Cowboys is always awesome.

I'm hoping to see more of what Slaton can do. As it is, I would say that he is the best RB on our team. However, the downside to this is the effect on Darius Walker. With the same style of running and same general skill set, it's unlikely that Walker would survive the cuts should Slaton turn out to be as good as he's looked in limited action. Then again, I doubt Brown will make it and Taylor has been less than impressive. There's a chance that there might be room for Walker.

Also, I sincerely hope that Jacoby Jones stocked up on stickum last night. Should he muff another play tonight, I think he may be in some serious trouble.

That seems most likely to me. Green/Slaton/Brown with Taylor snuck onto the roster as a fullback.

I'm more than ready for this game to get going!! I've had enough of all the drama surrounding the Olympic games. I don't care WHO plays, I just want to see a TEXAN win! Usually, during preseason, I don't really care much, cause I know those guys are trying out for a job and some of them will walk away with pick slips. BUT, a win against the Cowboys is a WIN anyway you look at it, and it feels damn good!! JMO

It's especially nice knowing all our TEXAN pals around the country can watch the game!! Enjoy the game guys/gals, and we'll expect a report back from you all tomorrow!!:fans:

The most common online places I watch are:

www.channelsurfing.net
www.justintv.com

There are other places around it is just a case of finding the right link or channel. I'm not good at finding them so I tend to rely on the hard work of others.

To be honest TT.com is not great at finding those links, but I tend to trawl opposing teams sites in the hopes of finding them. I find my sopcast link on cowboyszone.com today.

CLutchfans is awesome at finding Rockets games online but that is beside the point.

If Schaub would just let us know when he decides he's not going to show up to play then we could use Rosenfels when Schaubs off and use the Saints game Schaub the rest of the year.

Yeah except that was the entire preseason. This is one quarter so far. I'm not completely worried about our offense. I think they'll be fine. I just think it's an off game for Schaub for whatever reason.

I think there's reason to worry about the defense...

I think this game is a good example Richard Smith's vanilla defense not cutting it against good football teams. This isn't the Saints, the plain Jane cover-2 soft safe defense is going to lose us this game (provided Schaub doesn't with his arm. What is wrong with him?).

Well the old schaub has surfaced scared and not accurate ! There is going to be a turnover very soon the way he is playing . The defense is looking like it took a step backwards today to many players watching the play instead of playing .
