    Well, folks...week 3! Let's go to work early. As y'all know, this game won't be easy, but that doesn't mean we can't focus on the task. Physical football all day and getting that 1st win in B-More; not to mention, 1-0! That's the main goal every week. Let's go in to their crib and handle bidness! COMPETITION'S PAYIN' THE PRICE!

    As always, well put together, Shark.

    Football fans are such masochists, though. Interactive entertainment. Sidewalk Supermen, wearing another man's name on our backs. Someone farts on the field and we smell it in our heads. We live for this stuff!



    Oh, I wish we had gameday threads in the 80s and 90s. I wonder if it would go the same way back then as it does today, i.e. giddy anticipation moving into rampant fanaticism, as too-soon jubilation makes room for uni-mind inquisitiveness, while gears switch to defeatism, and all the time the thread implodes on itself as we burn Warren Moon in effigy (or in 2013, Matt Schaub). :)

    Let's get that first win in M&T Bank. We almost got em with TJ in the playoffs, and now it's time to get that monkey off our backs. I hope Harris fills in admirably because it's going to be a long day if he can't slow down Suggs, and oh lawd I am more worried on the other side of the line.

    Texans win 24-17

    GO TEXANS!

    Considering the difficult stretch of games ahead of us, we need this win very badly.

    GO TEXANS

    I hope the Texans score lots of points in the 2nd quarter. Let this be the game where the Texans not only start and finish strong on both sides of the ball, but remain strong throughout the 2nd and 3rd quarters.

    Bulluck is a good kicker. When he gets his damn head straightened out we'll be glad we have him. I sure Kubiak knows this. In the meantime we finally have a kicker that doesn't allow very many kick off returns against our piss poor special teams.

    That gave me a chuckle. Never looked at it like that but there's some truth there I'm sure.

    That'd be really cool steelb but I don't think I can take another "at the gun". I dun't have any fingernails left!

    Go Texans!

    I've heard some apologize for Bullock in that all of his kicks have been from 40+ yards. Last year, Shayne Graham went 7-9 from 40-49, and 4-9 from 50+. For Bullock to produce the same results, he will need to go 6-7 from 40-49 and 4-6 from 50+. A tall order. Meanwhile a kicker taken after Bullock in the 2012 draft has yet to miss from 50+ in his career. The Vikings Blair Walsh is 11-11 over 2 seasons and a 1st team All Pro as a rookie.

    And Joe Marciano continues to receive a check from the Houston Texans...

    They just showed Joe Flacco walking into the locker room on the NFL Network. He looks calm and poised. Exactly like a Super Bowl MVP fresh off an amazing playoffs last year should look like. Hopefully that changes when the game starts. We need to have a strong pass rush today. Their run game shouldn't be too much of a threat with Ray Rice out, even though Bernard Pierce is a decent backup but he's not exactly as good as Ben Tate is.

    So if the Texans defense does well against Tate in practice they should have no trouble stopping Pierce. The Texans defense did a pretty good job rattling Flacco inside the pocket and getting right in his face the last two games the two teams played.

    This game is going to come down to which defense plays the best, forces the most turnovers. I'm worried about Ryan Harris starting at left tackle but we'll see what happens.

    Rice being out affects the passing game more than the run game. Flacco won't have his safety valve and will have to throw down field more often. I don't know if that's a good thing for the Texans.

    I think this will be a low scoring close game that could decide on special teams. That doesn't make me feel that good, either.
