well i was born in houston, but grew up in pittsburgh. does that make me a traitor? oh well, i bleed black and gold and can't wait till the game starts. i think you guys will do well in the begining.....maybe jumping out with a TD on the first possesion (we're notorious for being soft defensively on the first possesion) but then i think our D will start dominating and our run game is going to go crazy.

final score:


Steelers: 34
Texans: 16


i think we'll win, but we may see you again in the playoffs.

Betting w/ Brain (no heart)

Texans 17
Steelers 23

Texans can't find a consistent running game and are nagged by timing problems between AJ & Schaub. Texans D shows lack of outside speed to contain the run and the secondary makes a few crucial missteps.

Betting w/ Heart

Texans 27
Steelers 17

Texans receiving / return game save the day and the defense puts constant pressure on the Steelers O-line.

OK, why don't we make it any closer than that ? Is your offense that good, or

I don't see us beating a contending team in their homefield on opening week. If it was week 10 then maybe, but right now we have big questions mark with the D and the running game. I see us getting run on early and often by the Steeler's RB duo. I also think Big Ben is going to have a big game, exploiting our weak secondary with our D-line being inconsistent as usual. Yea Pittsburgh o-line is mediocre, but when did our D-line became good enough to take advantage of mediocre opposing lines? mediocre vs. mediocre is equal last time I check. I think Schaub and the WRs will have a better game then Ben and his WR, only because our running game is useless and we have no other option on offense but to pass.

As much as I like to be optimistic, I just can't see us winning, even with my battle-red shades on.

Steelers:24

Up until the pre-season games started, I thought the Texans could go up to Pittsburgh and "steel" one. I know you don't put a lot of stock on the pre-season, but after watching the Cowboys starters run all over them, that got me a little worried.

Can they stop or slow down Parker and Mendenhall? Can they get somebody near Big Ben? If not, it could be a long day at the Ketchup.

That said, I'll go 34-28 Texans, with Slaton taking over for the injured Green and racking up 94 yards on 14 carries!!!:fans:

Texans 24 - Steelers 20

AJ & Schaub connect for a 50+ yard TD grab. Green gets somewhere around 15 total touches. Slaton runs for 74 yards on 12 carries. Taylor chips in 20 yards in limited work.

Mario finishes the day with 1.5 sacks & the pass rush is able to pressure Big Ben into at least one turnover. Reeves gets burned by Ward for a TD.

How the Texans do on offense all depends on the the running game IMO and how the D does is really going to depend on how the Dbacks do in coverage and how well the pass rush does.

09-01-2008, 04:53 PM
Unless we have a consistent pass rush,(which is a good possibilty, because of their O-line issues) then I think think Big Ben could have his way with our suspect secondary. But since I think our D-line will be up for the challenge, 20-17, Texans.

The Steeler fans on the site I've been to are complaining about their O-line. I don't know if it's as bad as they say it is, but our D-Line has two good players and two fillers. Our defensive secondary is suspect at best. Unless Green shows up healthy and has a good game, we won't get past 80 yards rushing against the Steelers and they'll eventually clamp down on our passing if that happens. Our salvation in this game, if it comes, will be the return game and a few Schaub to AJ long passes.

I look for an ugly game and an opening loss. On the Steelers site I predicted we'd win, but honestly, I just don't see it. If I had any faith at all in Green having a good game or our secondary getting lucky with a few interceptions, I'd feel different.

Sorry guys, I hate to say it, but I think we'll be 0-1 to start the year. I sure do hope I'm proven wrong on this.
