It was the first game of the season, and you just knew it was going to be a long day when Thomas Jones ran for an 80 yd TD on the first play, IIRC.
I'm just glad that since then it seems our teams have gone in different directions.
Thanks for saving me the keystrokes.
I'll add this...Sweet Toes Ryan didn't let up. He took it to the final whistle. The Texans now have the talent to return in kind. Kubiak won't do that out of spite, but if his game plan is delivering that, then that's what they'll get. See 41-7 beatdown last year in Possum Holler.
I can't wait to see how it happens. I'm hoping Matt will involve that #1 draft pick corner. Got to give him a chance to show the nation why he should have been a #1.
