    It is now Friday evening and I am ready to move on from all the bashing and negativity. The Seahawks are coming to town this week.
    They have identical w/l as us, plus they are coming in off two straight wins ( ok they were over STL and SF). They also put a 41-0 beatdown on Jax earlier this year. They are pretty healthy for the first time in a while.

    This could be a very tough game for the home team and not a cakewalk at all.

    Anyone interested in talking football this week?

    Seattle is sitting on the same record we are. :eek: That's a scary proposition. What happened to this being a "gimme" game several weeks ago?

    Hard for some to get fired up about meaningless football(again). Not myself but..

    Can you blame them?

    Exactly! A lot of people have been talking that these next two games are "gimme" games, but I just do not see it. Our team is struggling with its confidence right now and really need to come out of the gate strong Sunday. Do you think they can? Or will?

    Not asking anyone to get fired up; just talking instead of bashing.

    I believe they "will" this week. I know the team hears the rumbling around town. I'm pretty sure most don't want to hear early boos Sunday. That said, I'm not overly confident either.

    The players did resume practice slow and sloppy on Tuesday. The Texans'
    confidence is SHOT. Reliant may be half full, and if they start to stink it
    up, turn out the lights.

    Hah you're right. It's a uphill fight to get back to 8-8.

    "Those" places don't open until four on Sundays. I'm good to go.

    it's asking alot, but the o-line better step up and protect Schaub and his injured shoulder. they know it, we know it, and you can bet the Seattle rushers know it too.

    I hate to say it, but Schaub is one good hit away from seeing Grossman get extensive action. I have absolutely no confidence in this team getting a win with that joker at QB.

    I'd like to see our defense step up and make some plays. People like to bash Capers, but he did put together a good D for a couple of seasons. Remember that Steelers game when the offense could only muster 47 total yards but we won anyway? We have yet to see a Texans defense like that, even though it could be argued that we have more talent now.

    I haven't been following the Seahawks much, so I don't know what to expect. If we come out and give up a big hit on our QB for the first play again, I might just go rake some leaves and listen to Vandendork call the game on the radio.
