Default Texans/Broncos matchup

Hello, all.

First time posting here. Heading to the game on the 27th at Invesco Field. Man, do I miss the Bayou City!!! Any thoughts on how the Texans might stack up against the Hobbie Horses?

What's The Deal With Jake Plummer ? Are The Broncos Really Convinced This Guy Can Lead Their Team To The Playoffs? I'm Starting To Believe All Of Arizona's Losses Weren't Just Because Of Their Lack Of Talent. It Seems He Has All The Tools To Be A Good Qb, Just Hasn't Put It Together Yet. Oh Yeah Back To The Real Topic,texans Will Be Be On Top When The Starters Leave The Game After That I Have No Idea.

I think it will be interesting to see AJ matched up with Champ Bailey. Seth Payne is set to play some during the game, and that should improve our defensive line. I'm a bit concerned about him returning against Denver who's O-Line is known for making barely legal blocks. However, I am also eager to see him back in action even if it's only for a series. I think the tightend for the Texans might play a larger role in the game due to the inexperience of the Broncos starting LBs. I belive its DJ Williams and Pierce starting now, but I thought that Pierce went down with an injury. John Lynch brings leadership to the Broncos secondary, and he's pretty tough on the run. If Hollings plays he could see some good hits. Unfortunately the Broncos don't look to have a potent passing attack, but we will get a chance to go up against a very good running team. It will be good to go against the Broncos backs, and it will prepare the defense for facing LT and the Chargers. I just hope for no injuries on either side of the ball, and a good showing by both teams.

I live in the Denver area, so I get to see them and listen to the area sports shows. So far the first team offense in three games (they played an extra with the HOF) has not scored a touchdown and only won one game. That will not sit well with their coach. According to the sports writers and talk shows, they will be approaching this much more like a regular game and will be game planing for us. (I believe we will be doing some game planning also).

Jake Plummer - VERY erratic so far
Ashlie Lilie - Very Bradford like. Catches a hard one drops the easy one
Darrius Watts - has looked very good so far
Quinten Griffin - Looks like another 1000+ yards runner for them. Lots of speed.
Rod Smith - Solid but not spectacular so far
Defense - Just fair, Champ hasn't stood out as much yet.

If they play like they have been we win, but I suspect they will be getting a shoe up their backsides to make a statement this week and it is in front of their fans. Most sports sites have them listed in the top 10 teams going into the season. If they play like they should be able to, we will have a steep hill to climb. Having said that, the fact that we lost at Pittsburg in such a bad manner MAY provide the impetus for us to do well and pull it out.

Denver better hope Q. Griffin can step up right away in thier running game. From what I've been hearing Plummer has been horrible so far this year.

I don't see how anyone could bet on a preseason football game. It's a glorified practice.
