    I wonder why there is that little splotch of green in Oregon?

    Oh yeah, and go Texans! Texans should win by at least 14 or something is wrong.

    After last weeks debacle, I’ll be wearing new game day attire. Time to start this win streak! DW4 throws for 4 TDs today, Texans win easily.

    Mariota.

    I wonder why DFW is green? They hate the Texans.

    So the Titans 1st 3 OTs are out (Lewin, Conklin, Kelly). Pamphile is at one OT spot. Who is playing the other Tackle? Stinnie? I'm guessing that the Titans will be in 2 TE sets all day.

    Empty backfield on no more than 10% of our pass plays. Motion on at least 15%. Play-action at least 15%. No huddle to sustain rhythm, not create it.
    Gameplan around our HB's - run the ball, pass pro in designed ways - either to open escape lanes or designed 'hot' checks
    O'Brien's routes are too deep, mix in split-back sets from shotgun that can give max protect options that worked last year
    If Vrabel's defense looks anything like ours did last year, there's congestion and overlap among db's (especially safeties) ... this is where the home run ball comes in, but don't get greedy - balanced football.

    Let Mercilus play outside rush linebacker.

    Pray that O'Brien doesn't screw it up.

    Often earlier the season we will get Texans unless (well until) the Texans prove to suck and/or the DFW fan base complains and we go to the best "national" game which is normally whoever is playing from NFC EAST.

    While Houston gets the Boys, no matter the level of suckitude. At least it lets you get out of the house every once in awhile, right?

    In light of the Tacks offensive line woes, both starting tackles out, a back up tackle slated to play sent to the hospital on Friday with a viral infection, having to play a back up gaurd or tight end as a tackle, the Tacks are going to get overwhelmed by Watt, Clowney, Mercilus, McKinney, Cunningham, Covington and Reader. This is going to go badly for the Titans quarterbacks. Gabbert and Mariota don't have a chance. No offensive line basically, no Walker, no running game. The Tacks will be held to under 150 yards of total offense and 5, yes I said 5 turnovers. 3 of which will be for 6.
    I'm revising my prediction yet again.
    Texans 57
    Tacks 0

    I would slow the roll on a Texans blowout. The WR corps is hurting and the Titans strength is their secondary. I also don't think O'Brien wants to give Vrabel a bunch of shots at Watson. I see a low scoring game where both teams try to establish the run. Watson makes a couple of plays to seal the win. Texans 20-13.

    As I expected, CLowney will not play. Fuller and Hopkins will try.

    This is also playing out the way I expected.

    Hopkins needs one reception to extend his streak to 81 consecutive games with a reception to start his career, which is the longest streak in franchise history to start a career.

    Lamar Miller needs 11 yards to reach 5,000 career rushing yards.

    JJo needs one total tackle to pass Cortland Finnegan (648) for 14th-most career total tackles by a cornerback in NFL history.

    More then anything else I’m major concerned that our ENTIRE WIDE RECEIVER ROTATION IS HURT OR OUT 2 weeks in a row....... it won’t matter how good Deshaun does or doesn’t do if we don’t have a receiver that can get open consistently........ so we can’t blame him when he hasn’t had his weapons two weeks now........ and how is Clowney already hurt when we put him in bubble wrap all preaseason and training camp!!????? COME ON MAN....... it’s gwtting old....... I fear we may never see our team at full strength on both sides of the ball to even make an assessment of how good we are or are not for weeks
