    Andre Johnson: 1,500 yards
    Steve Slaton: 1,400 yards
    Matt Shaub: 4,000 yards
    Mario: 12 sacks
    Barwin: 8 sacks


    Man.......I'm freaking ready for some Football....

    I think I'd take the over on all of the above except for Barwin. I think he'll manage to get anywhere from 4 to 7 sacks this season. I love the guy and think he has a ton of potential, but he's facing a steep learning curve this season. Next year though I could see him posting big sack numbers.:fans:

    Is the 1400 yards for Slaton rushing only? Or both?

    I took it to mean total yards.

    Alright then I'll take the under on Slaton too. I think Foster or Brown will take over some of his workload.

    I'll add a couple more over/unders:

    Fred Bennett 6 INTs

    Forced Turnovers by Defense 32 (We had 27 last year)

    Owen Daniels 1000 yds receiving

    James Casey 3 TDs

    To me the most critical stats I am interested in are:

    Team turnovers/takeaway differential - 0
    Last year, they were -10(more turnovers) which ranked 29th in the league.

    How many games Schaub starts - 12

    I'm wanting to take the over in both, but if our secondary situation is as bad as it seems, I hate to say it, I am going with under on the turnovers/takeaway.

    And to rub salt in that... it won't bode well for playoff hopes

    Andre- Over
    Slaton- Under (over total yards)
    Schaub- Over
    Mario- Over
    Barwin- Push leaning under
    Bennett- Under
    TO- Under
    OD- Under (Its hard for a TE to get 1000 yards)
    Casey- Over (I have to think they will utilize him in the Red Zone. I am thinking 5)

    Oh what the heck... I'll play too.
    (obviously we're assuming nobody misses any significant time due to injury)
    Andre Johnson: 1,500 yards
    Under. But not by much. I can see 1400 - 1450 yds. Schaub will spread it around more so A.J.'s yds and catches will dip ever so slightly. I mean 115 catches/1575 yds is a hard act to follow. However I can see > 8 TDs this year.

    Steve Slaton: 1,400 yards
    Under. I see 1200-1300 yds rushing. Foster/Brown/Moats will eat into his carries. They will be more productive than Green was last year so S.S. won't have to be the whole dang running game by himself.

    Matt Shaub: 4,000 yards
    Over. A.J will get 1400 (see above) but O.D., S.S., A.D., and K.W. will combine for 2700 and push him over 4000 yds. The Matt/Sage duo combined for almost 4500 yds. Matt - this assumes he stays healthy - can do that alone. Maybe even better. I also predict he'll get more than the 21 TD passes they combined for also.

    Mario: 12 sacks
    Over. This was a toughy. I think the new additions to the line might pick up sacks that he would be getting which might make his total drop by a couple. Still, the Kool Ade sez that Mario is probably good for 12-13 sacks every year.

    Barwin: 8 sacks
    Under. Definitely under. If he gets half that as a rookie - considering that Smith, Mario, Bulman, and a healthy Amobi are in the rotation - I'll be delighted. I just want him to flush the QB Mario's way. Repeately.

    So what is the over/under on the weeks when the start DanO or Rex threads?

    or the over/under on the "fire Kubiak thread"

    or the first Koolaid thread.

    Those are real over/unders message board style.
