I'm confident that we will still have the bragging rights for the year after this game. I do have to admit that this is the toughest Cowboy team we've had to face. I sure hope that Carr has on his "magic shoes" come game time cause Ware is gonna be all over him. Ill be watching for a glimpse of our new blitz packages that Capers is installing. Hopefully we can get a decent pass rush when just our linemen when we go to nickel and dime def. Considering that Bledsoe is going to behind center and the Cowgirls have a shaky line in the first place. I wanna see if TJ can bring the pressure that we need when we drop into zone defenses. Well im ready for the game to start already...

Here's a suggestion for you guys that are all steamed up about playing
the Cowboys Saturday - get yourself a secondary team to support in the
NFC East. I want you to continue to passionatly support the Texans and
keep them as your favorite team as I will. But if beating the Cowboys is that important to you, you can also support the Eagles, Redskins, or Giants and route for a team to beat the Cowboys because they'll be playing them twice every year, and both games count ! The Texans have some more individual player evaluation to complete but to the team, this game Saturday is only significant to the Texans if somebody important on the team gets hurt and nobody here wants that. But the real season and important games do start soon now - in September.

According to Capers, this is the game that the starters will play the most and they will also game plan as well.

The last game against TB the starters will probably see very little time.

Every year all teams (not just the Texans), play their starters more in the
next to the last preseason game than any of the others. And most every year I fail to see a positive correlation between team intensity, focus, and
execution between preseason games (any of them), and when the regular season kickoffs in September. You watch the difference between how the veterans, the mainstays of the team play this weekend and compare it to the opener in Buffalo - it'll be like night and day.

So, you're telling me that if the defense is unable to get any sort of pressure on Bledsoe on Saturday night, it won't be anything to worry about?

I, for one, am already tired of hearing about DeMarcus Freaking Ware. Some of you guys speak of him like he's already LT in his prime. Is he going to be a good, and possibly great, player in this league? Probably. Did he have an impressive preseason game against Seattle? Yes. But take a deep breath...geez. A sack/fumble and a pick (on a play where Hass locked on to that TE and threw a bad pass) in a preseason game does not make him a first ballot Hall of Famer. (Or maybe I just HATE the Cowboys. Sorry for the rant.)

My prediction will be Texans 23 - Cowboys 10. No particular reason, just can't stand the Cowboys.

That's one of the reasons I've been an Eagles fan for years- because I hate the Cowboys, and it bugged me to see them in the Super Bowl a while back.

Another thing- I've always disliked Bledsoe and Parcells, so it would be great to see our team make them both look bad.

I liked the Eagles when they had Joe Walsh.

You're thinking of Glenn Frey. Jackson Browne is the guy who took Steely Dan's job with the Cardinals when Steely got hurt.

Dont count on it. It's a new D and still a lot of growing pains to go threw.
