Think warm thoughts today!!!
Bringing along a pacemaker might be wise too.
I have a feeling this will be a close game, either way. Go Texans!!!
Ok, I am sitting in Green Bay and it is freaking cold this a.m. Right now, the wind chill is -19 degrees. Looks like it will "warm up" to 12 degrees at kickoff and 17 degrees by game's end - both with lower single digit wind chills.
This should be a close game and it is nice to see the local press giving us pretty good coverage...especially AJ.
It is nice to see so many Texans fans here - I have come across many in the hotel and around town. For an expansion team, we will be nicely represented.
Here are the current numbers for the two teams today.
Offense (Total NFL Ranking)
YPG: (5) Houston 367, (12) Green Bay 340
Rushing YPG: (15) Houston 115, (18) Green Bay 111
Passing YPG: (5) Houston 252, (10) Green Bay 228
Total Points per Game: (5) Green Bay 27, (15) Houston 23
Defense (Total NFL Ranking)
YPG: (16) Green Bay 329, (21) Houston 338
Rushing YPG: (23) Houston 128, (27) Green Bay 141
Passing YPG: (5) Green Bay 187, (15) Houston 209
Total Points per Game: (22) Green Bay 24, (24) Houston 25
Add to that, the Packers D has intercepted 17 to their opponents 10, and both teams have collected a lame 20 sacks each.
It's a very even match, but the Packers have us by the weather. I really hope they are fired up today, in every sense of the phrase.
I'm ready for this game. After seeing a game live, its going to be weird watching it on TV. Now I know why going to NFL games is so addictive.
I can not wait for the game. I got a good feeling about today, I think we get the tough W on the road.
Mandatory Check in.
I'm awake, cold and well fed.
One guy who won't be cold today is Super Steve Slaton - Gash'em Steve!
Looking out for a big game from The Weatherman and stevie wonder.
I really want Mario to have a big time performance. I think the Packer OT's are not up to snuff this year and he can take advantage of that.
They are down right weak.
Really I think the wheels have just come off this year. Both clifton and tauscher are probowl tackles that went last year (I'm pretty sure).
I certainly hope it doesn't happen but this is one game, one situation this season where the Texans would have a perfect excuse(s) to lay a giant egg.
Super Mario is licking his chops knowing that a big time performance today can get him back in the hunt for the 08 sack king title
Just like the disclaimers of internet "self-serve" stock investment sites always flash up on their TV commercials: "Past results do not ensure future performance."
Who is inactive today?
Which is why a win today is so important....
Looks like Harrison is starting for Ferguson.
