    I don't know who starts these threads but if it matters you guys are .500, screw you....lol.

    You are looking live at Reliant Stadium in Houston. Sorry, you say "Houston" and the state needs not to be mentioned.

    I'm not expecting much. These heartbreaking losses are starting to really get to me. I hope for the best though and I'll be able to watch this game on TV tonight. GO TEXANS!!

    It'd be nice to start a nice winning streak today, but I'm finding myself already thinking about what happens during the off season.

    I'm still gonna cheer for my team though. :)

    I'm headed out to the game. Hopefully the mood will be elevated when I walk out this time. This game is the most important game ever.

    One of the keys to this game is keep Dallas Clark in check...and put that pressure on Manning...make that baluga head scramble.

    Dont get me wrong man, I'm as big a Texans fan as it gets. What I meant by that is I'm not gonna get all worked up and pissed if we lose.

    Another key is that Kubiak feature the only "feature" back he has. If the offense falls flat with Chris Brown getting the majority of the carries again, that's on the coach.

    Chris Brown averaged 2.5 ypc through almost three quarters last week; his "big" fourth quarter upped the average to 3+ ypc. If he is inefective for most of the game this week and is still getting the carries, stubborness is trumping in-game adjustments. This should be a moot point; Slaton should get the carries from the start.

    Agreed. It is time for Slaton to get the carries again.

    So lets go Texans!!! My heart has ended after a Monday night heartbreaker. I take no responsibility for anything I posted after that.

    I know they are going to fight hard today and pull out a big one against the Colts.

    Inactives - Texans:
    7 QB Dan Orlovsky (3QB)
    17 WR Glenn Martinez
    27 RB Arian Foster
    38 CB Mark Parson
    42 S Brian Russell
    66 DT DelJuan Robinson
    70 G Tutan Reyes
    97 DT Frank Okam

    Starting lineup change - Texans:
    John Busing will start at free safety for Eugene Wilson, who was placed on injured reserve this week.

    Inactives - Colts:
    4 K Adam Vinatieri
    11 WR Anthony Gonzalez
    12 Jim Sorgi (3QB)
    26 CB Kelvin Hayden
    43 DB Aaron Francisco
    47 TE Gijon Robinson
    93 DE Dwight Freeney
    96 DE Keyunta Dawson

    Starting lineup changes - Colts:
    Raheem Brock will start at defensive end for Freeney. Jacoby Lacey will start at left cornerback for Hayden.

    Hopefully now that Freeney isn't breathing down Schaub's neck we can exploit the mismatch of an undrafted rookie on one of our WRs.

    Go Texans!!!

    If there was ever a day to beat the Colts, it's today. If we can't beat them without Freeney, then we just aren't ready for prime time yet. Of course Manning is still playing so that's a problem as it always is.

    This is the first home game I've ever missed. I just couldn't muster the energy for that long drive this morning. I almost feel like a traitor, but if they win, I'll get over it real fast.
    Go Texans!:fans:
