(on what he thinks of RB Steve Slaton over all) “Eventually this kid has a chance to be a heck of a player. How quick he gets to that point this year may have a lot to do with how far we go. But we’re going to count on him. He’ll get a bulk of work along with (RB) Ahman (Green) right now. We’ll see where he’s at but this football team is counting on him growing up pretty quick.”

We tried that once... Fortunately it resulted in a 38 yard pass interception penalty on their D... Unfortunately that was David Carr to Corey Bradford v. Dallas September 8, 2002...

But if we ran the ball on the first play of the game, Green would immediately go on IR.

I agree with that assesment. It's not flashy, but it will help establish what we want to do for that game. I really don't care what we do, as long as it's successful and not a turn over on the first play.

Saves us money and makes way for the new guys.... Even if he doesn't go down on the "1st play", I feel all we are doing is post poning the inevitable. The guy will end up unable to play for a significant amount of time this year, jusy my gut feeling.

We come out in a single back set. Weakside toss to Green. Harrison penetrates so quickly that he's able to disrupt the toss. Ball hits the ground and is scooped up by Polomalu and returned for a TD.

Green hurts his knee while falling down.

Gibbs is so furious that his head explodes and disappears into a fine red mist.

At least no one on field or watching will expect a pass to Andre Johnson.

I agree with establishing the running game early. I reckon we Old Schooler's always like to see the running game going early and often.

BUT, that's why I went back to take a gander at last season's plays. To me, it has become Kubiaks M.O. to open with the passing game. Heck, there were a few games last season I was wondering when I was going to see the run.

That's the vibe I get listening to the video on HT.com.

I hear a the players talking about keeping "on schedule."

Winston said it in his quotes

Quote:
I think the big thing with our receivers and our passing attack is we have to stay on track, on schedule. One or two yard runs in this game are going to be fine. We can’t expect that we’re going to go in there and gash them for seven or eight yards at a time. We have to go in there and stay on schedule, keep those third downs to third and five or less. I think we’ll be fine because with our receivers and the way we go, we can convert a lot of those. Those are high percentage plays for us. Staying out of those long down situations are also going to keep us away from the crazy blitzes that they’ll throw. So, a lot of it is just going to be staying on schedule, running the ball effectively, and getting in there and staying tough and hopefully late in the game we can break the big one.”

and later Schaub said close to the same thing.

Quote:
[Being able to execute our game plan and not try to outthink ourselves and be fundamentally sound with the football and what we are trying to do. And being on schedule, you know, you don’t want to get behind the eight ball on third down too often. You want to stay at third and six or less and you can do a lot of different things
I take this as the Texans really trying to establish the run early and often, and not get into 3rd and longs.


My prediction...

Ahman Green to the left side for 4 yards.

Sorry to disagree, but that is what Steeler are hoping that we try to "grind it out" with them. Don't see that working this year. Just my two cents. Think coach K is on your side.
