You could always hope that one of the Texan CB's can pick off 3 passes and run them back for TD's.......

Hopefully we can do better offensively than we did that last time out against the Steelers. You think our offensive line is bad now? Go review who we started in 2002.

Well that certainly does seem obvious now. Remind us what position Sharper played on the offense?

I say the key to beating them is let our Offense gain 48 yards..bring in Aaron Glenn and have him run two INT's for TD.. and hope that Rothlesberger(sp) eats some bad Tacos and have the runny stuff and for Tommy Maddux to take his place that's if he is still with them.

The good news is, IF the Steelers had forgotten about the last game.....they were reminded today. From Cowher's press conference:

Q: The last time you played these guys, was that as bizarre a football game as you have ever been involved with?
BC: Oh. Bizarre is a good word. I remember the game, but this morning, I was looking at the stats of the game. We lost by what? What was the final score, 20-7. They had 47 yards and we had over 400 yards of offense. It was a really bizarre game. That was a weird year.

Q: That game cost you home-field advantage in the playoffs.
BC: Were talking about this year and now we’re going back to 2003? I don’t know. Did it?

Q: Yeah it did.
BC: Thanks for the memories.

So, at least now, our coach is reminded of what the Texans did. And when asked if they team was looking ahead to New England....

BC: We don’t look ahead. Houston is the only team we’re worried about.

I hope we come out firing on all cylinders. That loss to you guys stings and we still have a lot of players left that were here when it happened.

It's a tough hill to climb this week, but it can be done. One novel approach on offense would be to try all the stuff Houston worked on during the offseason, since it apparently wasn't used much last week.

I think the defense will hang in again--certainly better than the Tacks did last week. But if the offense comes out stinking again, that won't matter much if the D's asked to stay on the field forever.

Start quick out of the gate. Put some points on the board early and make LOTS OF NOISE!! Remember, Ben is only a second year QB.

I think the biggest key will be to establish a running game. This will take some heat off the passing game.
Too, better blocking, to give Carr time to seek that 2nd receiver. You know they will be on Andre like crazy, so Carr must find his secondary receiver!!
Someone has got to step up and take some heat off of Andre.

I think they have to find the secondary receiver and build in some plays specifically to get them involved early. Would be a big boost to see a Gaffney or Mathis catch on the first play, even if it is for 4-5 yards. Start out positive and spread the ball around. Start AJ in the slot and run a post slant to the outside, roll gaffney from the outside across the middle, underneath AJ... a quick in strike ought to be enough to start to build confidence.

If we don't win the coin flip, the game is probably over... we can't play catch up.

We CANNOT turn the ball over, especially the 5 times in the Bills game.
I hate to say it, because I like to remain optimistic, but I have lowered expectations for this game. But if they can find a way to win I'd say we should all be encouraged going into the bye week and considering this past Sunday's debacle. That's not to say I think the offense can be miraculously cured, but it can be improved enough to win with the right changes.

Oh and it'd be extremely helpful if the defense could get a takeaway or two as well.

I still think our best chance lies with the Magic Football Pixie Dust.

Now that I think about it though that doesn't sound too good. I was making fun of the IBM commercial but instead it sounds like it should be followed with

"It worked for Michael Irvin didn't it?"

My bad.

To me winning is second seat to actually being competative. They are a good team and if can just pop them in the mouth and fight hard ill be ok with an L. Id still like to win but you take what you can get.

Quite likely. Actually can anyone remember one single game where the Texans controlled the line on both sides of the ball for the overwhelming majority of the game?

Nothing comes to mind. Even the Oakland win last season and the Jacksonville shutout were about takeaways and often times good luck (penalties helping to kill our opponents drives, dropped passes). We just don't push anybody around on offense or defense really.

No way we're pushing the Steelers around this week.
