    My prediction
    KC 10
    HOU 22

    And my surprise of the game:

    Wali and Chris Taylor break out in this game. Wali has a long TD run with a break away, and Taylor becomes someone we want starting if DD is down.

    I believe I read an article on the Texans Website that they plan on mostly using 2 RBs this game and then 2 different ones the next game so they get more reps per game.... So Wali or Chris might not even play *Sorry to burst your bubble*

    The coach had said the three he planned on using (initially, could have changed his mind) was Smith, Wali, and Taylor (this is if DD was out)

    I cannot wait to see Antowain carrying a football for the Texans. Truely, in my mind, an awesome moment. Besides that, I feel that it is important for us to use Lundy as much as possible.

    KC 17
    HT 20

    Surprise: second string QB Sage Rosenfels outplays David Carr and leads the team to victory in the second half.

    That should rattle a few DC homers :tease:

    Houston 24
    Chiefs 17

    Surprise: David Carr at the first team offense drive straight down the field the first time they get the ball.

    2nd surprise: Lewis Sanders plays well and Buchanan is in danger of losing his starting job.

    Too many boo boos. Too many green players. too many questions. Once the first team guys are out, we're gonna get killed.
    Cheifs 34- Texans 17. :hides:

    I agree with your basic premise (green) but I am pleased to report that this is the first year in which the Texans have a resemblance of depth in their depth chart. Our second team D-line is quite respectable and ought to fair well enough against the Chiefs' second team O-line. Rosenfels is capable and I have high hopes for both Morency and Taylor (though IIRC both are sitting out this week.) We're certainly not an amazing second-team unit, but I suspect we'll be good enough to hang.

    I'm predicting that there will be quite a few mistakes made in all aspects of our game. Unlike the last regime, our coaching staff will take it as a learning lesson and fix the mistakes.

    Weaknesses become strengths or you'll be eaten alive kind of deal.

    Oh, and there will be some of this...:crutch:

    Now that's optimism right there. You forgot about the 10 tackles for a loss.:redtowel:

    Surprise of the game: Derrick Armstrong has a good game and catches a TD. I'd like to see Armstrong as our #4 WR.
