Default Picks on the Chargers game

Just for grins, and because I'm getting tired of arguing about Kubiak and what the hell's wrong with the Texans, let's look at who's picking who for this Sunday.

I'll start with ESPN's page of "Expert Picks". They got five picking us and five picking the Chargers. Wow. Does "500" ring a bell with Texans fans? LOL

I want to say 20 to 10..Chargers win, but since our defense gives up more points per game on average I will say 24 to 14 Chargers

Sounds like the perfect storm for a Texans lost.

Dallas hasn't won a game all year, on the road or at home, yet...well...we all know what happened there...


When things are in the Texans favor, and it seems like it's a good chance for us to finally 'arrive' they always seem to let me down...

I hope you are right Lee...I hope the Texans come out and restore some faith in what they're doing...

Naw.....we win this one and the Bolts begin to disintegrate for this season. It’s likely the Texans are only putting off the inevitable mid-season collapse we’ve all come to expect, but we win this one.

Default Re: Picks on the Chargers game

For some reason, I feel like this is going to be a trap game. I believe San Diego is a much better team than their 3-5 record indicates. What have they been excelling at? Passing the ball. Yes, Philip Rivers has already thrown for over 2600 along with 15 TD passes and looks to surpass Marino's single season passing yard record. Rivers has been lighting it up and our secondary has been getting lit up. See the problem?

However, the Texans have always been able to rebound after a disheartening lost. The offense, though, needs to step it up a notch to overcome our defensive deficiencies.

I predict the Texans will win this one.

31-28 Texans

I'm unfortunately going to have to agree with Corrosion this week, I think we get flogged 35-17 or something of this nature. I think Rivers is gonna have a big day..

Now that being said they could drop every ball in sight like I've seen them do as well and we kick the crap out of them, but I don't want to get my hopes up and then get them crushed.

Default Re: Picks on the Chargers game

Look out, something I heard on NFL Total Access last night, correct me if I got it wrong.

Chargers-
#1 rated Offense
#1 rated defense
3-0 vs Texans
always start late in the year
just whooped the Titans
have a newly drafted RB that did not want to play for the Texans
Texans are 2-2 at home

yea I know they are only 2-5, but some still pick them to win their division
This is one of those trap games we need to reallt get up for

Wow ! I mean I wanna say the Texans will win and I sure want them to win,
but my sense is that they've definitely regressed since last year, for whatever reasons, some apparent others not so much ?
Last year we were playing right there with anybody (with maybe one exception ) even if we didn't win the game, but this year with the season not even half over we've already been blown-out 3 times vs teams with talent like the Chargers. And 2 of those lop-sided losses were in Houston, so we seem to have no advantage at home in Reliant ?
