    We may very well win. Whether we look competent or whether we look like the same **** we've seen for 5 years now remains to be seen.

    Also **** Mario Elie.

    Looking forward to seeing Josh Allen.

    Hopefully he's a delightful disaster.

    I'm more interested in the Astros game this evening, but I'll be watching the Texans do whatever it is they're gonna do.

    I just hope when the Texans beat the Bills to win three games in a row and reach .500 that people can give them the credit they deserve. I don't want anybody to say that the Buffalo Bills suck or anything like that. Don't diminish the victory! Go Texans!

    They need to win by more than 10 for me to think we weren’t lucky in winning.

    We'll probably enter the red zone another five or six times today. I just hope we can come away with more Touchdowns! Not field goals or no points.

    I saw some stat the other day showing that our offense is actually netting more yards than the high-octane Chiefs offense (we rank high in a lot offensive categories), but we're scoring 12 points less per game on average.

    If our red zone offense improves we'll make the playoffs, IMO.

    6:09 PM before the Cole Train takes off!
    We can watch the Texans play at 12 noontime.
    And still have time to sneak in a good movie in between.

    I have worn my Astros jersey to every game for the last 2 yrs.

    Gotta support an org committed to winning and let the Texans org know what it looks like to support a winner. When the Texans have these stupid days to help sell more gear, 70,000 fans should all show up at NRG wearing Astros gear.

    BTW, I gave my tickets to a client today, this will be the 5th game I've missed in 15 yrs. Gotta get ready for the Stros game tonight. Roll another one my friend.

    Anyone know the status of WFV and Keke? Gotta start one of them today; PPR and .5 PPR leagues respectively. Haven’t followed closely this week.
