    Game Day! Hopefully our team pulls this one out and starts off 3-0. I can't wait for the game, though. Going to a little get together tomorrow with a bunch of Cowboys fans. Should be fun watching Mario abuse Romo and AJ going lights out on the Cowboys' hobbled secondary.

    things im watching for & i think we'll need to win:

    -balance on offence. only one franchise record needs to be broken today & thats to get our first ever 3-0. we gave up on the run way too early last week. arian couldve had a 100 yd day if we stuck with it esp late on when we had 2 drives with time & down seven. no qb esp one as important as schaub cant & shouldnt take that sort of beating consistantly

    -Special Teams: SUCKED last week bar rackers & pollard. from consistant penalties on jj's good returns (and he had a few crap ones too) to turks terrible coffin corner (and his shitty pooch punt when we were backed up deep on the second to last drive in the 4th q) not even mentioning slaton (who despite his f up) had useles blocking the whole day. molden should help but those guys need to play way better this week

    -D Line: we badly need consistant pressure like we had v the colts. they were all anonymous for over 3 quarters in washington. hearing antonio is sick is not a good start

    Yea I just hope its a good game. On paper it should be one of the best games this week. Cowboys have their backs against the wall and the Texans can continue their undefeated streak.

    Hopefully its a mistake free game where the referees are invisible and allow both teams to play and not dictate a win.

    No letdown.

    Relentless pressure.

    Attack, attack, attack on offense.

    4 Quarters.

    4 quarters is key. This is going to be a VERY tough game. The 'boys are desperate and are going to be prepared to battle. We have to play much better then last week. Go Texans Go!

    Adrenalin already pumping. Hoping our secondary turns it around today and Mario gets some assistance in the pass rush. Not to worried about our run D, they have looked good when challenged. On offense I expect a few draws to slow down Mr. Ware, and Schaub to cut up the Dallas secondary with the "Fantastic 4". Expect it tight till late. 27 - 10 Houston.

    ROCK-N -ROLL HOUSTON

    So it's game day! I'm excited, but my optimism is tempered...

    The keys to the Cowboys making a game of this will be turnovers... Dallas has 4 turnovers in 2 games, while forcing 0 turnovers in those games... On top of that, as bad as Dallas has polayed for 2 weeks, despite the turnovers, the penalties, etc, if Buehler makes a couple FG's Dallas could easily be 2-0... However, Houston is a much better team than the Bears and Skins, so Dallas' only chance of winning there is to bring their A game... The Texans are good enough to beat Dallas, even if the Cowboys can find their A game, and they'll get blown out if they continue to play the way they have been...

    Dallas' defense will have to win this game, and I'm not sure they're currently capable of it... We all know Ware's a beast, Ratliff plays NT at an elite level, and Spencer's better than average too, yet Dallas has a whopping 2 sacks in 2 games, with 0 turnovers... Dallas does have a legitimately good defense, but with those stats, something's seriously wrong here...

    I will say this though, a lot of you Texan fans are acting as though the Cowboys are outclassed in terms of talent, but I assure you, a lack of talent is not the issue, a lack of execution is the issue... Don't let the 2-0 vs 0-2 records fool ya, this is a dangerous game for the Texans...

    All that said, unfortunately I'm still picking Houston today... Dallas needs to play desperate, but focused... I know they'll bring the desperation, but I don't think this team can muster 60 minutes of focused football, and that's what it's gonna take...

    Enjoy the game....

    Our Dline wasn't too bad against Washington, Its just the refs absolutely refused to call holding on their OLine till way late in the game. I chalk it up to star power and the league trying to protect one of its old commodities. Hopefully Dallas' reputation for penalties annulls that superstar protection for Romo
