    Feel free to post your concerns, comments, or whatever else on this thread regarding the Texans versus Colts game...

    I am really pumped up about our first home game against a division rival, the Colts. The Colts are solid on offense but are lacking on defense. There starting DTs are undersized and there All-Pro safety Bob Sanders is out. The Texans need to take advantage of this but using Steve Slaton in the passing game as well as letting him run outside of the tackles.

    I would also like to see Chris Taylor pound the ball up the middle on 3rd down situtations against the Colts weak DTs. Hopefully, Duane Brown and Eric Winston can keep Dwight Freeny and Raheem Brock out of Matt Schaub's way so he can pass to Kevin Walter, Owen Daniels, and or Andre Johnson.

    If we win this, then we can easily beat the Dolphins, Lions, and Bengals and go from being an 0-3 team to a 4-3 team. If we do beat the Colts, then I think we have a good chance at ending the season at 8-8 or 9-7 if we're lucky!


    GO TEXANS!

    Must throw red flag. Lots of red flags.

    I believe we can do this Texan fans!! Lets be the 12th man on Sunday, and if we lose, we'll all know we did OUR part! Be LOUD, be strong, and think positive!! The Colts will be a tough team to beat, but, we just can't give up hope!! I won't anyway!!

    27-21 TEXANS

    Just be sure to keep your seat in the Bullpen, G'ma. Don't want to upset anyone by standing up.

    I just checked the injury report for both teams at NFL.com and it showed No Injuries to either team LOL

    Hello Ahman Green is still on the Texans roster.
