31 - 17 Texans

Too much time to prepare for Capers, too much young and hungry talent on the side of Houston. Mr. Tomlinson, meet Mr. Babin.

Not taking the Chargers lightly but would like to see broad particapation from as many Texan players as possible. Focusing on fundementals, distribution of the ball on offense, special teams, eliminating turnovers and closing the defense tightly around the Charger jugular.

Will LT gain 100 yards rushing? Maybe, however against the Texans he will be most effective dropping underneath for screens and dump off's. Cappers will need to assign one of the linebackers to him, who would you pick Wong?

I don't see the Chargers stopping David Carr's weapons with the revamped line, even if Dominack sits it should be along day for the Charger defense.

Texans 24
Chargers 10

He can't do it by himself. Their WRs are Kevin Dyson and Tim Dwight. Their OL is a patchwork. They are starting guys like Steve Foley on defense. If the Texans don't win this one easily I'll be a little disappointed.

Our boys have good attitudes and are very hungry for the win. Injuries the only thing I am worried about. Texans all the way, 17-10.

As of my post, it seems all of us think the Texans will win.

The poll has it 62-0. Of course, I doubt many Chargers fans have voted....even if they do feel they have a chance.

This is the first time I have noticed who the other teams in our division are playing the first four weeks. If Jacksonville doesn't beat Denver at home, they are looking at a possible 0-4 start.

I see it as Texans 24 Chargers 14

I hope to see lots of rushing from both teams though, my fantasy team's RBs are LaDanian Tomlinson and Domanick Davis, so naturally the fantasy Gods grant me the opportunity to watch both in the same game!

Can't just jump on this one as a SURE win. Chargers looked a LOT better than I expected in their first pre-season game.

Well, it's surely the most likely win the Texans have ever had on their schedule. Opening day at home against the worst team in the league from the previous season. It certainly would be the most disappointing loss.

What I said before about the best chance for back-to-back wins...should be noted that Harrington didn't look shabby at all last night. Neither did C. Rogers. They're putting together a very nice young team up in Detroit--this will be a really fascinating game to watch, and I hope the east coast media doesn't ignore it because the Texans are in it--like some reporters did REGULARLY last season.

I don't know about anyone else, but the first year when we drew the bengals I thought we were going to beat them by a fair margin and they handed it to us pretty good.
