Jags lost a tough game in OT at Minnesota, so I think that they will be ready to win one at home.

Exactly. A road division game is never a gimme game.

This is a huge game, all division games are, so I hope this team packs their big boy pants for the plane ride to Florida.

Default Re: Week 2 VS Jaguars. Lets Predict :)

I haven't watched the Jags game, yet, so I might change my mind about all this.

I'm very disheartened to think that Gabbert might actually have improved from last year. I wanted him to stink up the joint for a few years of sub 4-12 football before they pulled the plug on the experiment and went a new direction.

But we've shown that we've got to improve in all phases of the game. The Jags game is going to be a war. They're going to play us hard. They're going to be hard to run against and they're going to get off the bus handing the ball to MJD.

I expect a long, brutal day of football but I think we win. 24-17.

Texans 38, Jaguars 16

This is the game the Texans offense explodes. Puts together a solid four quarters of play. The red-zone offense comes through with an impressive 5-for-6 in the red zone -- 5 TDs and one FG.

A 2-0 record. Been there and done that. I want to start off 3-0, 4-0, 5-0 for the first time in franchise history. The Texans have a lot to prove in this road game against a division rival.

Yet we all had a bit of a growing concern until those 2nd quarter turnovers happened, which opened things up.

I'm done predicting easy wins. Every game is a test. Our guys have to think likewise, or we'll end up wondering how we blew the season.

Texans 21
Jags 24 Homer pick!

I hope for a close, entertaining game, and add a no injury game! Jags are pretty beat up..injury bug is as big a FL cockroach this year! Seems the Jags have been the walking IR team every season lately! Texans should be able to chew up the Jags 2nd defense...injuries, the lack of a pass rush, and the LB core having major issues covering the pass....also, add the horrible non-tackle/no wrapping up..made my blood boil yesterday. Is it me, or are these professional players forgetting the fundimentals of playing football?

I think it's the lack of full contact drills in TC.

To me, the most revelant thing this coming Sunday is how the Texans D does against MJD. Normally this is where I'd also say we are going to win, but a road division game is never a gimmey. But I do think our offense will do better against your defense that your offense will do against our defense.

We'll find out soon enough.

I'm done predicting easy wins. Every game is a test. Our guys have to think likewise, or we'll end up wondering how we blew the season.
I really don't think the Fins are a terrible team at all. Sherman and Philbin are both extremely talented playcallers. We caught them at the right time w a rookie qb starting first game and no playmakers at WR.

Interesting notes: The fins were only outrushed last year 6 times and were a top 3 rushing D, giving up 3.7 ypc and only a single 100 yd rusher all last year (Tate). Also, our 20 point margin of victory against them has only been outdone once in the past 3 seasons by NE in 2010.

We face another stout test with our running game this week. Hopefully our O-line has a productive week at practice and in the film room and we start to show some progress and more cohesion. This will be a tougher test for our O overall as they will likely be much better against the pass, but with Schaub on fire right now, we should be able to find our guys open and win the game in the air.

Good news is they are beat up on the O-line so while I expect MJD to run for 4.0 ypc, we should get to Gabbert eventually and force him to make some mistakes which could be the difference.

Close one score game, coming down to the last couple stressful possessions...

Texans win 23-17.

MDJ is playing "average"..he is mentally playing, what he is getting "paid." He did not look the same yesterday, he left a lot of yards on the field. I'm glad he suffered a $800k fine for the hold out!
