Default Hello

Hello, I would just like to see your predictions for the season opener. Assuming we still have Henry and all the rosters are the same as they are right now.

24-10 Houston wins. Rookie QB against a faster texans defense and 2nd year for the Texans OL to be playing together will all add up to a Texans win.

I got to see proof that your defense is any better than it was last year especially your pash rush. Yikes!

Anyways right now I dont want to predict, I want to see Losman in training camp and preseason and get a good feel about it. Either way it will be a close game.

I think the Bills do have a better team then last year, but Losman will definately need to step up to the plate to even keep up with us. I say we win 20-7. The Bills defense plays good, but the Texans defense shuts down Losman. Our offense does decent, but our offensive line has little improvement from last year.

16 - 13 Texans

Our secondary is going to make it very tough on Losman, but the Bills running game is very good. McGahee will keep the Bills in business, but there is only so much he can do.

Our offense is gonna be very good next year, but the Bills defense is very good as well. In the end I dont think they will be able to stop us from taking the lead though.

Close games.. lots of 3 pointers...but the Texans take it in the end.

Default early pre-camp prediction

Bills 27
Texans 24

Texans have one of the worst run defenses in the NFL until proven otherwise. No pass rush either. The Bills have a dominant running game and a dominant defense. 0-1 for the good guys

31-10 Texans

McGahee gets 130ish yds and a TD and ya'll (that's you all) kick a FG
Losman gets sacked 3 times, picked once for a returned TD by P-Buch
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
D. Davis gets 180 total yds (120 rush / 60 rec) and a TD
D.Carr gets sacked 3 times, no pix, 2 TD's
AJ scores both TD's and has 100+ yds
K. Brown gets a FG

Score will actually be 21-10 @ half

Normally I wouldn't do this but you asked

By the way, welcome to the MB's

I believe the game will be a good one but the Bills have a lot to show the world that they held back in preseason. Losman saw improvement in his play every week of preseason and would of looked alot better stat wise but our recievers dropped about 30 balls this preseason but I look to see Mularky improve that especially since our four recievers Josh Reed, George Wilson, Aiken, and Johnathon Smith are all fighting for a spot to stay on the team,so I look for them to try to step up their game because one of them will be let go once we get Parrish back. Our top two recievers are studs as we have moulds 88 catches last season with Drew "i cant throw anything on target" bledsoe as our quaterback and Lee Evans who led all rookies with 9 touchdown catches last season. Our Running game is anchored by Willis McGahee who showed he could be one of the top running back in the NFL starting only 11 games gaining over 1000 yards and 14 touchdowns. Losman has all the tools around him to succeed and all the tools to be a good quaterback in the nfl. All he has to do is now make the costly mistake and we will be fine. Our O-Line isnt that solid but its starting to gel alittle bit and Losman has the legs and pocket awarness to avoid the pressure which he has done plenty of times before. Not to mention the kid has a rocket of an arm, and then you look at our defense and special teams. Wow! Second Ranked Defense last season and only lost one starter on defense (who only played 33% of the snaps last season) and our special teams was ranked first in the nfl. We have McGree returning kicks and he is a threat everytime he touches the ball to score and we have the real secret success to our Special teams is Jason Peters. The man is a monster and he on the norm will pancake two men from the kicking team opening up gapeing holes for our returners. We also have the best punter in the NFL who doesnt get enough credit for what he does. But he was huge for us last year as we played field possession football and we are going to do the same this season. Good luck you guys!

Bills win 28-14

Didn't the Texans beat the Bills a couple of years ago with that defense and that pass rush your talking about? The Texans defense has gotten younger and FASTER and will have a better pass rush. You better tell Losman to start watching out for PEEK!!

Also the Texans had to use their back up QB because Carr got hurt in that game. I stick with my pick and number!!

Yea because 2 years ago the Texans OL was just freakin horrible and the defense was older and slower than it will be this year and the Texans played with back up QB and still beat the Bills in cold weather.

That Yikes! defense had the longest streak for not allowing a TD last year starting with denying the Colts for 3 quarters. Keep in mind the stats are a little deceptive as well since we played 6 games against the top 5 offenses in the league last year and just 2 against the bottom 5 offenses.

The AFC South had to face the most potent passing attacks last year.
Indy had to face NE,Tenn twice,Houston twice,Jax twice,GB,Minn,KC,SD,Denver...those are a bunch of good passing teams so maybe they weren't as bad as everyone thinks because their opponents had good passing offenses.



Houston faced 12 good passing attacks and the ones that weren't Cle,Chicago,NYJ,Detroit which the Jets and Lions had the potential. Thats why they allowed 32 TDs when you factor in only getting to the QB 24 times,last in the NFL.

Jax faced 12 good passing attacks while only Buffalo,Detroit,Pittsburgh and Chicago had mediocre passing attacks. Only allowed 18 passing TDs which is remarkable.

Tennessee you can say the same about since they had to face 12 good passing attacks and thats why they allowed 29 passing TDs.

Its what type of offensive team your defense faces.Going against Manning and Culpepper, carving up defenses last year,were two of the hottest TD throwing QBs in a long time.

This year it will be a little easier facing the AFC North and NFC West even though the Rams will be a tough passing offense to defend.
