After last week, no one can fault anyone for predicting that we will rival Limp Bizkit on both sides of the ball. Under the circumstances there was charity given with a 28-13 loss prediction. Hope we come out that good or better.

I'm deciding what's worse, their prediction... or the freakishly annoying number of ads on that site... :foottap:

I think it'll be closer than that, but I'm not expecting a win.

The only predictable thing about the Texans is that they start the season slow. Other than that, there's no telling what you're going to get on Sunday.

White with the logo, never seen that one used. It was he is referring to.

I'll be happy with a solid performance. I'd be happy to see these guys put up a good game and fight.

I am completely out of kool aid. In years past, even after a bad/ tough loss, I would have mustered up some confidence by Friday and would have hope that we could come out with a win. Not this year...

While the score may not indicate it, I anticipate that we will get dominated on the road. Titans win 24-3. VY sees the field midway through the fourth quarter.

we have so many different uniform combo's I'm not shocked people outside of here don't really know what we look like.

If the sausage King scores points on the Texans, not even the largest supernova in the entire universe will compare to the explosion of this board.

I'm waiting for the Love the Planet green uniforms to come out so I can get a jersey to match my eyes.

I can't believe that Las Vegas is placing the Tacks at only 6 1/2 pnt favorites.
The Tacks rank 13th in offense (against the Texans 31st ranked defense) and 23rd in defense (against the Texans 29th [tied] ranked offense).

The only way they got 7 pts last week was from that interception/lateral handoff. If that's not pulling it out of their @sses, I don't know what is.

38-7. They still won't be able to run the ball. The interior part of the OL will still be rag dolls, and Chris Johnson will have an over 200 yard day.

I think I'll watch women's bowling instead. :rolleyes:

How critical is this game to the season ?

The thing we cannot do is get manhandled again . If we do , teams will lick their chops to play the Texans .

Then you'd probably be able to watch the equivalent if you just stay tuned to the Texans/Tacks game. You could just as well watch 260 pound Lendale White (the bowling ball) split the Texans defense (the pins).:foottap:

Year after year we keep hearing, after Game I........we still have 15 more games...........after Game 2..........we still have 14 more games..........after Game 3................we still have 13 games. The problem with this mentality is that each loss gives us a lesser number of game pool to make the majic number of 9-10 wins...........or maybe even 8. This mentality is a built in loser's mentality.............PRE-APPOLOGETIC to what has come to be a disappointing end result.

I would have settled for 1-1 after the first two games and they can still do it . If they get their butt's kicked again , then why would I think they are going to beat the Jags . Like you said , it's here we go again .

Heck, with the Jets game now on film around the league all teams have to do is do exactly what the Jets defense did. I mean, it's not like we'd make the adjustments for it.

What about the three openers we won? Did you hear that then?? :specnatz:

I don't know that this game individually means all that much, but it creates more pressure for the later games. I think most people had us at 1-1 after the first two games, so this gives us an opportunity to steal one back. I think the real benchmark is the first four games. I think people hoped for 3-1, but if we got 2-2 I think most would be satisfied. If we lose this game, we still can go 2-2.

Seems the mission of the team is that of fashion...SO, until our 'boys' get to playing like men, we ought to make them wear pink till they deserve otherwise.

He's never been that mobile to begin with, but mobile enough to "help" him avoid some situations. No matter what he says, on top of his overall poor decision making and poor performance, his mobility was definitely affected last Sunday by his ankle, immediately putting him in a defensive mode, aggrevated by a defenseless offense. His ankle is not going to miraculously be rehabbed by Sunday, and I'm afraid we'll be seeing him take the classic David Carr (fetal) position to try to avoid his ultimate fate.
