    On Thursday, August 9th at 7:30pm CT, the Texans will begin this new season in Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs! The game will be aired on the NFL Network and locally on CBS 11. Of course you can listen to the voice of the Texans Marc Vandermeer call the game live on am 610.

    It's finally here boys and girls! Football is back!

    How much we get to see Deshaun Watson and JJ Watt play is the question. Maybe 1 series each. The starters are usually not on the field very long in the first preseason game anyways. Clowney likely won't play at all to allow more time for his knee to heal up.
    We'll get to see more of the 2s and 3s.
    The battles that matter are the O-line, running backs and the tight ends on offense and the secondary on defense.
    Who can step up and provide good depth in those areas? We'll be able to get a glimpse of that in this game.
    Who is everyone looking forward to seeing perform? What battles are you most excited about? What rookie or free agent are you hoping can step in and help this team get to the next level?

    This is for you guys and gals!
    This first weekly thread means our favourite game is back!

    GO TEXANS!!!

    I'm always happy and glad the season is starting.

    Then the season starts and I get pissed off again. LOL

    NFL Mobile has a live game (listening) option. It’s free for Verizon subscribers, so you can both watch or listen for free. Assuming you have Verizon, of course. Just letting you know if you didn’t already know...

    OB knows that if Watson goes down, we are doomed. He is going to do everything in his power to keep him away from injury. He might play 1 series where we run it twice and throw it once.

    11 more days until Watson, Watt and the boys take the field!
    It's so good to have football back.

    Duke Ejiofor is one player that I'm interested in watching. He's going to get plenty of snaps and hopefully takes advantage of them.

    Fulton next to Davenport will improve both positions. Henderson at RT will allow backups to improve {Jones-Smith who I'm focused on}. Kelemete will help me overlook we have no backup RG and allow time for Coyle to develop. Fuller may play RG if needed. 'keekee cutey' should send Braxton Miller elsewhere while Coates, Vincent Smith and/ or Jester Weah round out WR corps. Will Lamar Miller finally be used correctly or will any FA running back be real deal? I'm less hopeful of the latter & more hopeful of Blue or Tyler Ervin being the back up but not much more hopeful. I'm thinking #4 and WRs will take need from RB having a turn around.

    On defense: I'm not so sure J. Joseph has slowed very much; Colvin, Justin Reid and Badger should do what they were selected to do and my focus will be on FA Bademosi and draft pick Jermaine Kelly to be more than many expect. There is no pressure on him this season IMO and he could be the nickle CB of future; probably ends up on PS but he can still get haircuts from former teammate Tyler Ervin. https://www.battleredblog.com/2018/...e-the-texans-treston-decoud-or-jermaine-kelly

    UDFA Andre Chachere should compete well http://www.cfbstats.com/2016/player/630/1064933/index.html

    Looking forward to seeing both DR and Mahomes. Won't get much more than a glimpse of either one but still wanting to see them. Mahome is the guy I wanted us to draft since DW was supposed to go to the number one of two of QBs. Never expected him to fall to us. Very glad he did.

    He's 2-2 in opening PS games. And who cares what the score and result is when starters play 2 series in that game? Pre-season football is not the same game as regular season football.

    Get your reps in, stay healthy, figure out your 53, get ready for Sep. 9. The end.

    Yep, the score is irrelevant..you basically just want to get reps working on what you need to work on...and come out of the game healthy of coarse.

    And of course there's this.

    Having said this, I do want to see improved Oline play..

    I used to have that app and I don't remember paying for it. Get Sirius/XM and download the app on your phone. Baseball and Football wherever you go....Obviously not free, but...

    not too many decades ago I had what was called a pocket radio. Worked for most Rockets and Astros games if I was not able to watch a TV.

    My bad, it's the premium you have to pay for. Reviews of the new android app state it has lots of problems
