Have the Texans ever been a 10 point favorite before? Wow. That is a large line for the Texans.

Too large. Texans haven't proved anything yet, let alone being a 10 point fave.

Did you see the Lions QB? He dropped back straight out of bounds, and kept going as if he didn't realize.

I could have done better on that play

I believe Kitna may play this weekend, so we don't have the running to the back of the endzone to look forward to.

No sir. Kitna is headed to the IR:

REPORT: KITNA TO IR
Posted by Mike Florio on October 14, 2008, 9:54 a.m.
With no teams interested in giving the Lions whatever they wanted in exchange for the rights to quarterback Jon Kitna, the Lions reportedly have decided to place the veteran quarterback on injured reserve.

Dave Birkett of the Oakland Press reports that the decision has been made, and that it will be implemented later in the day.

But Kitna could be released from IR, once the team concludes that his back injury is healed. At that point, Kitna could sign with another team (after passing through waivers), or he could file a grievance aimed at recovering the balance of his $2.95 million base salary for 2008.

On Monday, Kitna said that he expects his back to be healed within a couple of weeks.

Well, our defense has been known to make unknown QB's look like Pro-Bowlers. My money would be on the Lions to cover that spread.

Mario should be ripping the QB a new ass this Sunday. At least he better because there's no one else that can.

Well thats good, cause so far in this season when Kitna starts at QB the opposing team always blows out the Lions and score 31+ on them.

Only time that didn't happen was last week, when *hitna didn't start.

After how our team has figured out ways to lose, I am not guaranteeing anything. We did figure out a way to win though so, I'm very optimistic.

I was listening to the Texans post game on the radio as I left the stadium and the host was comparing Schaub to Kitna...I thought it was a kinda interesting comparison as our offenses are similar when it comes to moving the ball between the 20's.

it was kinda a backhanded compliment since he was pointing out that Kitna can move the ball but isn't exactly what you want in a QB if you really want to make some noise in the league.

Oh my gosh I know! My buddy and I were watching espn? or sunday night football when they were showing like the top 10 highlights. We weren't really paying attention but that caught my eye and busted out laughing. Rewound (rewinded?)... Rewound to play it again... we must have watched it at least 12 times.

I forget which announcer it was, but he said something to the affect, "Well the Lions apparently never taught this guy the correct dimensions of the endzone." LOL- That play made my day.

Anyways back to the game. I hope we trounce Detroit. Defensively, they are no better than any of the teams we've played. Offensively... I could see our Defense struggling a little but I have the fealing we're playing a lot better. I think this is a game where all facets of our team come together. I predict after this game we're feeling really good about our team and the direction we're headed. Of course I'm usually always wrong with predictions so shouldn't be saying anything!

Default Re: Early Line: Houston -10 over Detroit

The way I see it is this team has to come together this week. By together I mean correct the mistakes and play a solid game of football. My reason is because it really doesn't get any easier for us now. Even with a win we will have to do something we haven't done before and that is win a 3rd in a rowe. Typically we lose that 3rd game even if the team is winless or whatever.

Then after that we have to play 3 out of 4 on the road and those team are not easy.

So if the Texans want to get some momentum they need to get well against Detroit and the only way you get well is by playing a very good solid game and not taking these guys lightly.

Limiting turnovers is certainly something that has to be cleaned up. It's interesting, however, how clean this team is playing in terms of penalties. I can't recall a team ever playing this clean. It's interesting that the team is on opposite ends of those two measurements: last in TO margin but first in fewest penalties.
