Default We're playing thursday!

Holy crap, I just realized that our next game is in THREE DAYS!!!

We're on national TV, we have to win to put the pressure on Indy and the Jax.

And I'll be dead tierd and hung over at work on friday (late games start 2:15am here...)

610 just had Barry Werner saying that Michael Vick as a scrambling QB, is better for the Texan's defense, opposed to a Pocket Passer.


Apparently, I've only imagined past QB's like VY running all over us and embarrassing the Texans out of what should be Texas win's in the past..

IDK, I can just picture Vick dodging defenders only to throw it to a wide open WR 40 yards down the field. I can see this happening at least 3 times.

I wasn't planning on seeing this game with the season where it was and I don't have NFLN so I wasn't planning on going out to watch that.

Man, gonna have to get out there now.

The game will be aired on channel 39 this Thursday. Usually when we play a game on ESPN or NFL Network it will also be aired on a local channel.

I'm pumped for this game already. I hope that the defense can step up their game again and give us a chance to win this game. I'm going to try and be positive all week.

There is a collection of teams that we've never beaten and every time we face them I think "Sooner or later the law of averages says we win one of these" but I'm consistently disappointed. Who are these teams we've never beaten?

New York Jets (already beat us this year)
San Diego Chargers (already beat us this year)
Baltimore Ravens (Will be beating us in two weeks)
Philadelphia Eagles (Will be beating us Thursday)
Minnesota Vikings (Not on the schedule this time)

We're collectively 0-16 against these teams.

But who knows, maybe this year we win a game or two against this bunch finally. After all sooner or later we're bound to win one out of sheer dumb luck right?

That's good to know. Can you tell me what the call letters/network for that station are? I live in Bryan, and we get some Houston stations (including whichever one has aired the preseason games), but not all. Our local cable service finally began offering NFL Network (for $7/month!), but I haven't signed up for it yet (and given that I will be on a plane during the game, I'm not sure I want to do so yet...).

In Houston the call letters are KIAH and it's the CW. Looking at Bryan's TV schedule it doesn't look like it's being aired on anything but the NFL network but I could be wrong.

Did he not see what Garrard did to us? That's VY lite....


Offense better be on their game Thursday..... I'll tell you right now, defense won't win the game for us.

Apparently the Texans feel pretty confident about their gameplan against the Eagles.

Last night, Ward Tweeted: "Exhausted but we have a good gameplan vs the Eagles this thursday nite! Can't wait! Let's get it!"

Then, this morning, LZ was talking about how the Texans have seen some things on film that lead them to believe that they could have a lot of success running the ball because the Eagles' LB tend to overpursue, thus leaving cutback lanes wide open.

Sounds good to me. But, it's important to remember that Foster touched the ball 39 times against the Titans and this is a short week. I imagine we'll be seeing a lot more of Ward than we normally do.

Which could be why Ward Tweeted what he tweeted.

Texans opened as a 7 point dog, but it's now at 9 and could be at double-digits by KO. That's a really big point-spread for any NFL game.

Is it just me, or is this the kind of information that it would be better if the Texans did not have announced to the world ahead of the game?

Im thinking about putting some money on the texans if the spread goes into double digits.

You have to pressure a scrambling QB in order to make him scramble. Our front seven isn't camparable to the Bears

Heck, this season, non-running QBs we've faced have at times looked like Arian Foster, against our D.

Putting your game plan out there more than just simply saying "we think we can have some success running the ball against the Eagles,'' is just like:
