    I am worried that the Raiders will try to make this a win one for Al moment and have that extra bounce in their step. Also, I am worried McFadden will shred our run D.

    I'm also worried that Al Davis is being re-born into the Anti-Christ as we speak.

    But that's another story. GO TEXANS!!! :fans:

    Well, I see it this way:

    We're going to do a moment of silence for it. Which will be seen as a classy gesture for a visiting team such as the Raiders.

    Then, we might have to kick off the ball to them. But our defense, with the help of our loud crowd at Reliant, forces them to punt to us.

    Whenever we get the ball, whether it's off a punt or the initial kickoff, we're going to drive it down and score a TD. Most likely via Arian Foster.

    And there goes any "momentum" they might have had off the emotional aspect of his death this weekend. Now, it's just another ballgame at that point.

    Not so sure fired up works against our O I predict enthusiastic overpursuit (from overly fired up raiders) opening The cut back lane for at least one 40+ yard run.

    WHOA!!!! I was just outside having a smoke and thought of the same idea but he would break a 50+ yarder.

    Freaky.

    Oakland is a dangerous team even without the extra incintive. It'll be close, but we shall prevail.

    Go Texans!!! :logo:

    It will be a sad day if we lose this game because our team only shows up for only half the game and/or our D gets destroyed by the run or pass........and the blame is placed on the spirited Raiders team's resurrection of the Ghost of Al Davis.:kubepalm::wadepalm:

    Hope to see some of you guys at the Blue Lot tailgate in a little bit.

    It's raining, so not sure if we can hang for too long. We bought $3 ponchos at Target last night, and have an umbrella...so maybe we can stop by just to say hi for a second.

    The totals in the previous 5 meeting of these teams have never eclipsed 44 points. However, today the Texans are 6-point favorites with a total of 48 predicted.

    They will be fired up for sure. We have to withstand their opening attempt at a knockout punch. Do not be surprised if they try to take the momentum early. The Texans need to be the turtle, and not the hare. The Raiders will be the hare today. This is a war, not a battle. Raiders may take the opening battle, Texans must win the 4 qtr war. The Texans need to regain momentum by keeping their emotions in check and staying steady. If the Texans try to emulate the hare, they lose.

    Today, Texans you must become one with the turtle! The turtle wins every time I have read the book!
