    I am going to propose an outlandish number: 6. And 2 INTs.

    Im gonna go with 4 with mario having at least 1 of those. As far as picks not sure 1 maybe 2. The main thing is we finally get pressure on the QB :texflag:

    This actually will be interesting. The Chief's line is in disarray. Kyle Turley will be starting at LT--that tells you something right there. He hasn't played football in two years, isn't up to his former play weight, was just thinking about trying to play as a TE and the last time he played LT he gave up 13.5 sacks. At RT they are starting Kevin Sampson a 7th round 2004 draft pick who has started 1 game.

    Good point. Conceivably, we could ring up even more.

    I'm excited about Carr and the offense, but I'm most excited to see how our defense looks; playcalls, etc. I want to see if our D-line and blitzers can be as dominating as I dream might be.

    I am not going to give a number.. I just would be stoked if they had a constant pass rush. I would love to see 10 sacks.. but lets see what we have.

    Yeah the poll is much better. Merge them mods, and let the voting begin. Mario is going to kill the chiefs RT. He is some seventh rounder and I dont even remember his name. Mr. CantBlockMario will make Herm Edwards only play his starters for one series.

    I'm going with four.
    There are a few things to consider that may make it more than four...
    There is a good chance that our starting DLine will go deeper into this game than a starting unit might in a normal preseason game one.

    The second thing is that with KC's afore mention OLine turmoil, they almost certainly don't have the same level of quality in the line that we have in our second and even third string DL.
    I think the first team we put out there will have success, but in the second half I really think our DL will have a substantial talent advantage over the OL they send out there.

    hmmm... I think I just talked myself into adding a sack or two... too bad I already voted!

    Houston, again.
    I guess I am the one that will be the wet blanket. 2 sacks and 1 int. First game, 1st team only plays about one quarter. I think one of the sacks will come from the second team as our second team line will be basicaly our last years starter line. We will give up one sack to Sage and both our QBs will throw an INT. L.J. gets 45 yards for the Chiefs on 12 carries. We score 17 Chiefs get 10.

    Im gonna go with 3 ..... Even the Texans abysmal line last year only gave up 4.25 per game .... and that was a near record pace for ineptitude .

    The Texans D-line is probably the strength of the team but even against a team who's weakness is their O-line I dont see such a disparity in talent that would lead me to believe the sack total would go over five . These are all professionals .... However I do see the Texans D-line giving constant pressure forcing some poor passes and causing general havoc.

    Three would make me happy .... and be an improvement over last seasons average of 2.3 per game .:twocents:
