    Are the Texans finally ready to overtake the Colts in the AFC South this season? Time will tell, but two of our three Playbook analysts (Sterling Sharpe and Joe Theismann) expect them to get off on the right foot by knocking off Indianapolis in Week 1. Brian Billick is sticking with the Colts.

    it airs on Saturday at 6 p.m. the show is called AFC Playbook

    If Amobi can step it up, we have a chance. And Adibi performs in Cush's absence. And Arian hangs on to the ball and gets + yards. Yeah, there's a chance. Is Saturday playing?

    Amobi had a nice game 11.29.09

    Matt had two picks & the ball stripped.


    I'm just saying.

    I hope they do, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Colts are just a better team until Manning is gone, simple as that.

    The Texans have the talent they need (with or without Cushing) to beat the Colts this year. The question is if they step up and do it or not. This coming Sunday is going to tell us a lot about this team. I'm glad they have a chance to show us what they are right out of the gate this season.

    I had a dream last night (seriously) that we ran all over the Colts.

    We were pouring into the end zone on offense AND defense.

    I hope that dream is a foreshadowing of what Sunday holds for us. As great as things have been, considering we've been a franchise for so few years thus far, a Game 1 obliteration of the Colts would be THE biggest win. Ever.

    This is like the third year in a row Sterling Sharpe has been trying to buy
    into the Texans. It's so sad this team has been embarrassing him every
    season.

    Week One against the Colts would be a quadruple win:
    1. A win against an elite team
    2. A win in the division
    3. A win at home
    4. A win in the Conference

    There is no way to over-sell the importance of Sunday's game.

    Dude, you just made this game even that more important for me.

    I would also like to add that Manning will be going strong at two defensive players for us - Kareem Jackson and Xavier Adibi. He's going to test our weakness first so that our strengths can weaken and he can have a field day. Only problem is, we aren't going to be weak.

    Not that it matters, but I think we've lost every time we've gotten their votes. :choke:

    Yeah, I was about to say that their voting for us means we're pretty much doomed.

    Doomed is when we only win games everyone thinks we'll lose.
