When we tried PASSING on the first play of the game, Green went down without being touched and missed the next three games.

So...

Green will not get hurt this year. His money is tied to his playing every week. He's going to run "softer" than anybody you've ever seen and average 2 yards a carry but he's not going to get hurt. No way he's going to risk those $200,000 bonuses just to gain the extra 3 yards we need for the first down.

It will be a handoff to Green up behind Pitts, for a yard or two, just to get Green into the game again after being out for a while.

Ahman Green, two yards and a cloud of bandages.

Green will take it to the house every time he touches the ball.

Which house is the question.

After a 65 yard return by Davis to the Pittsburgh 27 yard line, Schaub pitches right to Green who steps and throws a strike to AJ for a TD.

Ya know, that actually crossed my mind whenever he re-structured his deal... [insert Bob Bummer smiley]

Matt Schaub throws a 80 yard touchdown strike to Andre Johnson to open up the game. On a side note, the unfortunate corner responsible for covering AJ on that play will retire from the NFL after that play and it will continue to haunt him for the rest of his natural life.

Crossed my mind too. They should have restructured his contract so he gets paid per yard.

Play action fake to Green, Schaub hits a wide open Jacoby steaking down the sideline..

Now things get fuzzy. Does JJ catch it or drop it?

Your guess is as good as mine.

JJ catches it and the team gets fired up and wins the game.

JJ drops it and the team goes into a deep funk and folds up like a lawn chair..

Thats my guess and I'm sticking to it.

Ohh..and Travis gets two sacks.

I want to see a very aggressive plan of attack against Steelers. I do not think we can win by "hoping to hang on to ball" and grind it out. We need quick surgical strikes through the air and work the TEs Breuner and OD with some plays to slot. I also believe our kicker will be a huge factor.
Hand off to green for a run to the LT side. Green breaks out for a four yard run and pulls his right hamstring.

For the rest of the season we here he is close and its day to day but he's real close.

Slant right to Jacoby. Polamalu lights him up so hard his helmet rolls to the sideline but.......he hangs onto the ball for 9 yards and gets up celebrating like he just won the lottery.
