I have been waiting for this every since the Ravens playoff game ended... which I still hate to think about. :pissed:

I'm actually psyched for a preseason game! http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii202/J4103V/crazyeyes8.png

I wonder if Joel Myers has brushed up on the Texans player's names this offseason? Another thing, will we actually get REAL HD this time around?

It's on Channel 13 at 6:00 BTW.

Pay attention to Davin Meggett, those of you who can watch the game. He is not getting the praise that Grimes is getting, but when the Texans UDFA class was announced, I (and I want to say a couple other guys agreed) thought he had the better chance to stick on the roster.

Also on NFLN too

I don't think we can watch it on NFL Network if they're showing it on 13. Last year, they blacked out that channel and I had to watch it on ABC 13. (I have Directv)

Maybe this year they won't. I hate channel 13. They only want to hear themselves talk and Bob Allan gets on my nerves.

I was one of those, I really liked what he did at Maryland and thought he'd be a good system fit. That said, I went to practice last week and Grimes looked better. Maybe game day will prove different.

Shouldn't matter much though. Forsett looks real good so whoever doesn't get cut between the two (Grimes & Meggett) will get practice squaded.

08-11-2012, 11:39 AM
So pumped for this game. LOTS to watch for in this one.

QB - We all know Matt is the starter, but how has Yates progressed and how is Case and Beck picking up on the scheme and tempo?

RB - Look for Foster to come out strong and make us all feel good, but pay attention to Tate. I have heard he looks heavy and a little unmotivated, but could be bias from someone I know. How are the younger backs and Forsett coming along? We need some of the younger guys to prove themselves to make Tate possible trade bait in the off-season (or maybe this pre-season??)

WR - We need to see how AJ fares after another minor injury. Walter better get back to his old form of making great catches and moving the chains, how has Martin and Posey progressed? WHat about Jean and Maehl, will they step up this season? Also, pay attention to Holliday, can he make this roster as a wideout and help us on special teams?

TE - Is OD back to old form and who will be his primary back up? Lots of good things about Graham and Casey, which will take the number 2 job?

OL - LOTS of moving pieces here. RG and RT seem to be slightly in the air (RG being more so). Can the rookie over come Caldwell (I hope so!!!)

DL - Our starters are set (but who will take the lead at NT?), our depth leaves much to be desired, will someone step up?

LB - Our deepest position became even more deep with Mercilus, will Barwin or Reed step backwards this season? Who will take the role of ILB next to Cushing this season and will Brians new role be as effective?

CB - After JJo there is a big fat ?. Is Jackson the guy or will Harris or McCain take over? This could be a problem for us again this season especially the depth.

S - Quin and Manning are locked, but who can show off their skills to play a big role when Quin drops down to corner? Nolan, Keo or Demps?

P - I love me some Hartmann but he is coming off injury AND is suspended the first few games, will Gary and Rick keep him around, what about is Jones has a massive pre-season?

K - Bullock and Graham are in a dead heat, who will prevail?!?!

My biggest concerns, secondary, more so corners, the NT spot and the depth at wide out.

Lots to pay attention to and I am PUMPED!!!!

I have no idea why I'm this ready for a pre-season game, but I am. This game can't start soon enough for me. Hopefully it will be carried on NFLN, so I don't have to watch the crappy coverage on channel 13. What a bunch of losers that local group is.

Got the fajitas and ribs ready to grill. Go to NFL network on my tv outside to set it to record and damn! Blacked out in Corpus Christi. You can't tell until you select it to record on dish. Going to have to scramble to look for a stream. KZTV (cbs here) is horrible when it comes to showing the Texans. They play the Cowboys or Denver every chance they get and screw the end of a Texans game or the whole thing altogether. I have complained over and over every year to deaf ears down there. Same bs every time. We have no control over it, corporate does.

Where is the game?NFLN blacked out locally. I'm watching in 13/ABC and listening to 610AM



(DeVier) Posey and (Keshawn) Martin, they can’t be rookies for this team to succeed. They’ve got to play like veterans. And they’ve had a good camp. They’re going to both get very good opportunities. Lestar (Jean) gets thrown in that mix because in a lot of ways he’s a first-year player. So those guys will have to grow up for us real quick. How they play in the preseason to me says a lot about how they’re going to play for us once we get going, so it’s very, very important for them and the team. - Head coach Gary Kubiak, on his expectations for the team’s young wide receivers

Because he hasn't played in live situation in 8 months. He needs to knock the rust off. It's probably good that he gets hit too.

Obviously you don't want him to get hit because you don't want him to get hurt, but he needs to get back in the groove of real football.
