Never got to start a prediction thread so here goes:
We lose 17-6.
lose 24-6. Would be 17-6 but a pick six in the fourth quarter adds the additional 7 on there.
We hold Charles to under 100yds and zero TDs
Call me crazy (my wife and kids do it daily so it's probably accurate) but I think we win this one. Why? Well duh...because I'm crazy.
Though in truth it's because I'm hoping our coaches play to our strength which is a weakness to the Chiefs defense. Run the freaking ball. This is the best chance to beat the Chiefs since Alex Smith is not going to beat you. Run the ball, get a couple of scores, and you should have control of the game. If you try to go pass happy with the way our line is handling pass protection the Chiefs pass rush will have another sack happy game.
Schaub is hurt so I doubt he plays. Yates has tunnel vision and will not go through progressions even now it seems. Hopefully practice helps but it was one of the things I didn't like about him in the past and he did it again Sunday. If they go with Keenum I have no idea what to expect because he's the most unknown for field experience in the pros. But in the end we need to run it.
Granted at the same time we've been crappy against the run ourselves. But let's face it, the two teams we had some run issues on are the 49ers and Rams. Both have QB's who can stretch the field with their arm. Smith can't. Stack the box and focus on Charles instead of QB blitz, QB blitz, QB blitz! Smith should not dissect our secondary. If he does then we have even more issues.
Oh and don't get beat on special teams but for some reason I feel that is already going to happen thanks to Marciano and crew *sighs*
I still need to know the qb. If it's Matt, I think we'll lose. If it's Yates, I don't know. If it's keenum I don't know. I'd give us a better shot with case simply because of the energy factor. He brings more fire to the game than either Yates or shammy.
Matt is QB, we lose 784,634,109 to 0.
TJ is QB, we lose 87 to 0.
Case is QB, we win 10,000 to 0.
I just hope Case starts, so we can get by the Tim Tebow factor as fast as possible, people in the town are grasping straws that the hometown hero. He just beat up a non NFL starters in conference USA, and then lost the championship game against Southern Miss.
I guess I'm not drinking the koolaid enough..
snort the koolaid powder, don't mix it in a drink.
How much Kool Aid does it take to make cautiously hopeful? I mean, cautiously hopeful doesn't come across as a ringing endorsement, right? Or how about when people just say start Case because they already know what Matt's about? Is that a ringing endorsement, or just hopelessness in Schaub?
I don't see a lot of Kool Aid drinkers around here. What I see are people adamantly insisting that Keenum will never amount to anything and therefore don't start him, and I see people saying what the hell, Schaub sucks so why not? Very, very few people running around saying Keenum is the savior, except for those constructing straw men.
I predict at the end of the game Joe Texan, Bill and I will be consuming large amounts of intoxicants, Corrosion will be pissed off but happy because he's with his family and Cak will be down but smiling because he gets to go home with a hot redhead...
Prediction if Schaub doesn't play:
I don't expect a miracle turnaround, just an improvement, expecially if Keenum starts. Also, the Squaws are ripe to fold under pressure.
Texans lose by this much
Too easy, Texans continue to live in pick sixville.
Some will win. some will lose...and some will sing the blues!
Where's that going to happen lol... I need to witness this event lol.
I don't think I said don't start him, I said I hope he starts so we can move on, I personally don't think he'll be successful in the NFL, could I be wrong absolutely.
There are a lot of kool-aid drinkers when it comes to Case, not sure how you are missing that.
Everything about this game suggests we should lose.....but for whatever reason I feel good about this game. Chiefs offense is below average so it will be close. Just have to make plays.
We win Sunday and Colts lose to Denver on SNF then we both have bye weeks and face each other here for SNF w us being 3-4 and Colts 4-3. I am not holding my breath tho.
One can only wish right??
38-6 them boys on Kirby.
Defense's pride is on the line. They bring it, they don't allow a TD, they score 2 defensive TDs. We score three offensive TDs off turnovers, & the fat hobbit drills a 57 yard field goal just to rub it in.
24-6 Chiefs win.
This game is such a total mismatch for the texans. They are facing a good running team and Texans can't stop the run. They are facing a physical defense and we know for years this team has always **** the bed against a good physical defense.
