    We've been here before. 3 and 1 is nice.

    But a loss next week to Oakland leaves the Texans at 3-2 followed by a certain black and blue game in Baltimore. With a second consecutive loss there, the good guys are right back to .500

    The Oakland game is a must win.

    Not even thinking about the Ravens.

    The Raiders are a tough matchup for the Texans. I really think our run defense will be utterly exposed next sunday and we are going to end up in a close game again. I wouldn't be shocked at all if the Raiders take the AFCW.

    Mcfadden is a beast I am a little worried. Texans are going to have to load up the box and make the passing game beat them.

    It's a big game. Our run defense is really going to get tested. The good thing is the Raiders seem to shoot themselves in the foot as often as they make good plays.

    I will personally shoot anyone mentioning this is our Super Bowel. I'll have to put the gun on my credit card though.

    Well, let's hope the Texans don't have one of those Super Bowel movements against the Raiders. 4-1 would be ideal.

    What really bums me out about the Oakland game (and I know a lot of you have thought about this too) is that I was looking forward to seeing AJ go off on the Raiders. He's always had Aso on the other side keeping him in check and I thought "This time he's going to finally get loose against those guys".

    It's a small thing really but it would have been nice to see. Now I'll just be thrilled if we get to see him play again this year.

    The Raiders are a good team. It's going to be a tough damned game.

    If we're one of the better teams in the AFC, then we beat them. They're going to be looking at us and licking their chops. McFadden could break 300 yards.

    OTOH, our D has mostly gameplanned against the pass this year. Maybe it will be better against the run when we actually gameplan against it.

    McFadden scares the hell out of me.

    And AJ's injury scares the hell out of me.

    I have no hell left in me because it's all been scared out.

    Raiders have been playing good this season. They beat the Jets. I am glad its a Home game for us. Still remember Foster breaking out for a 80 yard touchdown last season
