    Calling out the TEXANS to play their most focused, mistake free, full 4 quarters, team effort, lighted fire in the @$$ game this coming week.

    Hey TEXANS, the fans are ready, are you?

    (yeah I'm already past the green and white game)

    Im pretty sure its going to happen. The only way we win this game is to score more points than they do (35+) and I dont think that we are mature enough to go out and do that. They are going to focus more on trying to stop something that is almost unstoppable unless the Colts do it themselves. We arent in the playoff race anymore, lets throw caution to the wind and really open things up next Sunday.

    The Colts will completely maul the Texans next week and honestly, they should be able to handle the Texans. If they are for real then the Texans should be just one more speed bump on the way for them. I think they are and I think we will be.

    And the Texans don't have 4 quarters of focused mistake free football in them. No way they are capable of holding anything together long enough to beat the Colts. They'll be lucky if the Colts don't hang another 40 on them.

    Houston, again.
    40+ for the Dolts and MAYBE 14 for the Texans. Should be a lot more for us, but we haven't shown we can do it for a long time.

    Manning's not going to throw 5 TDs in Reliant. He never has, he never will because the Texan fans will never let him stand at the line & audible for 20 seconds. If the Texans can find a way to slow down the Colt pass rush, they'll be in this game.

    If Manning does not get 5 td's next week, it will have NOTHING to do with the fans. He has'nt be rattled by crowd noise all year, the audibles are made with hand signals anyway so i dont understand how the crowd can stop that.

    I want to beleieve you but the Colts have scored over 40 points 4 weeks in a row. The last time they scored less than 30 points was week 7. It is not even a Texans thing, the offense of colts is just killing everyone at the moment.

    With Foreman gone for the year, I have a feeling Wong will be in that MLB spot more with means more Antwan "I play my heart out every play and get tons of pressure on the QB" Peek out on the field more. Pey-me-a-ton should have his hands full with Peek coming from his backside. Atleast I hope, I can never tell whats going to happen with this team anymore.

    My Girlfriend (big Texans Fan) and I heard that it will be shown on TV in Europe and it will be our first Texans Game we can see over here this year. It's just a bad choice to start with, i fear, but no matter what, we'll cheer for The Texans next week and hope for a Happy End any way.

    It is hard to take all this losing. All is not lost just yet though. Maybe Houston starts a four game winning streak next Sunday, who knows. Maybe Houston wins a shootout 48-45!! Stranger things have happened. :hmmm:

    I was saying it over a week ago in another thread in the NFL forum and I'm still saying it. Sack Manning. If you can't bring the pressure you're going to lose bad. I'd keep coming with the blitz until he's having trouble finding his way to the huddle. Overload the line, expect to be burned a few times for doing it, and put his butt on the ground. Just let Peek run wild. Give him the start and tell him that he's got to put the smack on Peyton.

    And even if we do get to him we're going to lose if the offense shows up with it's usual lousy performance.

    I'd love to see our defense shut down Manning and that Colty offense. I hope he does not throw a single TD pass. But I think the defense is just gonna have to get what they can and Carr and company will have to take advantage of the Colty defnse and score alot of points.

    Don't discount what the Texan offense can do from time to time. Remember the Vikings game...they came out flat, and then flat started playing, and almost came back and won!

    The Colts D is not the best in the world, and while they are playing better than they have ever played...they can and will be scored on.

    I am worried that the Colts are looking past the Texans. In the first meeting of these teams, the Texans were a playoff threat. Things appear to be different now, and if they think they are going to look past them, especially on national TV...the Texans just might pull the upset.

    Here's to a good game! I'll be working the game for my company...look for the Salvation Army bell ringer with the Colts hat on...come by and say hello!!!

    Colts fan weighing in here.

    Peyton needs 5 to break. You all aren't giving your team enough credit. They have the potential to play well on both sides of the ball. This game is not a gimme, nor is it assured that Peyton can throw for 5. Can he? Sure! We've all seen it! Will he? Who knows! One game at a time, especially in the division.

    I think the Texans are a future power in the South, and not that far in the future. You've built well, and drafted well. It takes time to establish a team from scratch! In the next couple of years, the AFC South may become one of the toughest diviisions in football!

    And no offense, I hope Peyton breaks the record at home. The Colts play there, then come home for two weks where her will certainly break it in front of his fans. That's the decent thing to happen.

    But like he says, he just wants to win. And he feels the OTHER record they're chasing is more important: 3 receivers with 10 or more TDs.

    Good luck! Here's to a lot of good football talk this week, a great game come Sunday, and NO INJURIES!

    Thanks for the kind words, but I think you're coming on the board at a bad time .. we're kinda punch drunk and slap happy around here ....
    Ever see the movie 'Money Pit' where Tom Hanks goes off hysterically when the bathtub goes crashing thru the 2nd story floor... we're kinda like that tonight .. :rofl:

    The Texans vs Jets game was televised in England. Sidline, our "over the big pond" pal, told us on TexansTalk.com that he watched it. Hopefully, the TEXANS will show some spunk and not get blown away. Hope you guys/gals have a great time watching the game! Have fun!!
