I would have to say our chances have just went down now that the Steelers may have noticed the Texans after this week. :)

If they use that game to give Kittner the time he suddenly needs, we'll be fine, but we just got the only preseason win I could've possibly cared about. Just get everybody out healthy!

I can't wait this game! I got tickets in row 12, right behind Houston's bench. Before the game, do you think there is any chance what so ever that I will be able to talk to anyone while they are warming up. I mean 1 Texans fan out of 70,000 Steelers fans, at least one player is going to have to notice that.

Make that 2 Texan fans !! .. ++ a bunch of crazies from the Cleveland area who are natural Steeler haters ..:hehe: .. We will represent!

The Steelers, coming off a poor 6-10 season, enter the 2004 preseason with few additions, lots of subtractions and lots of questions.
So here's hoping for a good showing by the Texans ... AND furthermore we got their Bruener, who is looking sharp!. :thumbup
Pittsburgh will miss him .. from his bio.. "helped Pittsburgh average 2,142 rushing yards per season over his nine years"

as long as there are no injuries i really could care less if we win a preseason game against the steelers...imo i'd rather us lose the game with no injuries than us win the game and have two guys out

I think we can go in and win. The Steelers just don't come off to me as a team that is better than the Texans. It'll probably be pretty close, but I think we can come out of it with another win. I was really impressed with the offense but even more so with the defense :boxing: ...very good game last night.

It's only preseason so it's really a crapshoot but I'm favoring the Texans in every game they play this year. I guarantee the Texans feel the same way. They're fearless. Barring injuries I see a dangerous team with few weaknesses and improved depth. Carr should turn the corner this season and take his team with him. I feel particularly sorry for the Chargers in Week 1. Not.

I haven't been impressed by the Steelers since the end of the Steel Curtain days and they don't scare me now. This will be a good game to keep an eye on Dunta.

I favor the Texans too, but it is just a preseason game so the winner really comes down to 3rd string vs 3rd string. I think early on the Texans will show a great passing game due in part to the weakness of the Steelers secondary. The Steelers will probably get more pressure on the QB than the Cowboys did, but Seth Wand did look impressive last night. However, Rothelisburger looked pretty good in his last game as well, and he'd be facing our 2nd or 3rd string Corners and Safetys so they might ink out a win. I just hope both sides come out healthy.

I like our chances. It was a good boost of confidence for them not only to win, but to win big.

The Texans will win. The defense will sure stop the bus (Jerome Bettis # 36) in his tracks.

This will be good work for us because our very 1st game is against a team that will use the 3-4 as well as the Raiders a month later. Other than that it has no meaning what so ever.

The Chargers switched to a 3-4 also.

I think we have the advantage while the starters are in the game. I believe the really interesting part will happen in the 3rd and 4th quarters. I believe we good depth at the DL, LB's and CB. SS is a little weak but not bad. The offensive side I will have to wait and see. I am not sure about the Steelers 2nd string defensive players.

I like our chances too but I wouldn't care if we lost. I think Carr & Co. will be playing almost an entire half this game vs. Steelers and possibly the Broncos as well. That's what Charley Casserly said.

GO MARK #87 GO TEXANS

If I'm not mistaken Oakland will use both the 3-4 and the 4-3. Depending upon the situation. I'm sure SD will be a 3-4 base regardless with Phillips as the D-Coordinator. Oakland, however, is trying to mimmick the Patriots defense. Not sure how successful they'll be with it, but you can't blame them for trying.
