Default Power rankings following week 3:

SI.com's Monday Morning QB has us at #14:

14. Houston (2-1). Speaking of interesting scheduling notes, the Texans play at Atlanta one time every eight years. Pretty eerie that the first meeting ever in Atlanta between the teams comes this week, in the fourth game of transplanted ex-Falc Matt Schaub's Houston career.

Earlier in the article he calls us the most improved team in football

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...b.week3/1.html


PS: He also made boulware his "goat of the week"
Goat of the Week

Houston SS Michael Boulware. Maybe now we know why Seattle gave up on him. On the Texans' first defensive series, Indy was at the Texans' 2, and Boulware stood across from Colts tight end Dallas Clark, ready to bump him. Boulware's a good, athletic, tough safety -- at least he's supposed to be all of those things. And when Clark left the line, he gave Boulware a simple fake, left him in his wake, and caught a 2-yard TD at the back of the end zone.

You've got to make that bump. The Colts are going to get enough easy-looking touchdowns, and Boulware gave them an easy one, not just easy-looking. One play or two turns the tide, and you can't afford for simple plays like bumps inside the 5-yard line to not be made.

According to Peter Kings MMQB:

Goat of the Week

Houston SS Michael Boulware. Maybe now we know why Seattle gave up on him. On the Texans' first defensive series, Indy was at the Texans' 2, and Boulware stood across from Colts tight end Dallas Clark, ready to bump him.

King also has Houston ranked at 14.

The AFC South looks like it will have four quality teams this year. I still think the Texans are better than the Jags or Titans, but that's the beauty of the upcoming schedule- we'll find out soon enough.

NFL replay is featuring the Texans v Colts game today at 6pm on the NFL network in case any of you guys want to see it again. They feature the 3 top games of the weekend on replay as the week unfolds.

I'm gonna give Boulware some slack, this was the Colts he was playing against as the whole defense for awhile looked bad up until about the middle of the 3rd qtr when we started to come back.

Thanks for warning me.

I really don't want to watch that game again, watching all those injuries happen is just depressing. I taped the game and I can't even bring myself to push play.

On a side note, I believe this is the first time we've had a "replay or game of the week" game

NFL replay is a great idea and a nice concept...they take out the tedious stuff, splice in coaches comments and other related stuff and truncate the game into an hour and a half...good stuff.

Default Re: Power rankings following week 3:

Vinny and Overalls are spot on.

I was able to head out of the office about 5:45 and head home to catch it. I missed the return for TD on the opening re-kick off, but saw everything else. It's a whole different perspective watching at home (as Overalls stated) and it is cool to "fast-forward" through all the BS (as Vinny stated)...

I saw a few things that I didnt catch Sunday - so that was cool.

We're #11 on FoxSports Rankings-

All four AFC South teams are in the top 11. At least to this point, it's the best division. No one has lost any non-division games. Pretty stout.

CBS has us at #15. It says week 2, but its week 3.

They have a ton of key injuries, and that is holding the offense back. Get ready for the hype this week: Matt Schaub goes back to Atlanta.

Just wondering, but do you suppose the Texans could have beaten Indianapolis if Andre Johnson had played?

A #17 from ESPN



The Texans fell back to earth vs. Indy. But considering they played without their best WR (Andre Johnson) and best RB (Ahman Green was hurt early), it was a respectable showing. QB Matt Schaub gets to torch his old team, the Falcons, this week.
