    What's the rule about talking to a pitcher while he's throwing a no-no??? You DON"T talk about it or you don't talk to him about it...

    To the question posed in the title, "yes."

    We haven't faced any real defenses yet (other than Dallas.) We still have
    on tap: Jets, Chiefs, Chargers, Ravens, Jags (twice), Titans (twice), Eagles

    That's a hell of a slate, and that's because I'm selling the Giants short. Indy
    and Tennessee smashed them by running the ball on them. I think the Texans
    plan to do the same. The Texans played a good four games, but it
    gets A LOT tougher from here.

    P.S.
    Yes, I say the Chiefs are a team to be reckoned with, because they have
    Romeo Crennell AND Charlie Weis as coordinators with a ton of young
    talent. It's no fluke the Chiefs look poised to win the AFC West.

    Amen, bro. Let's check ourselves. Foster is exciting to watch, but let's take it one day at a time.

    I have Arian on several fantasy teams and I would be happy if he only got 1500 yards rushing.

    When I mentioned the Jags, Titans, Eagles, I'm speaking about the matchup
    problems they pose for the Texans. Can't look at stats to tell the whole
    story. Otherwise, I'd simply ask how many games can the Texans win
    with the worst defense (statistically) in the NFL? But, I didn't go there.

    I really wish I lived in a world where fan desires actually influenced what happens on the field. Because in this alternate world, Earl would be sporting multiple rings...

    While it would be nice if #23 hit that mark, it has to be in context to direct correlation of wins that get us into the playoffs and beyond. Otherwise, it's just another personal record that will be left in the dustbin of history when 18 game seasons become the norm.

    I think we plan to share the load more so than would give Foster a chance at 2,000. His carries have been steadily declining over the first 4 games. Ward has emerged as a viable option and Slaton is north of 5 ypc.

    On the other hand he has looked unstoppable at times. If we let him carry 20 times a game I could see it because he only needs to average 100 yards per game from here on out to achieve it.

    Sorry still think noone can touch the prime days of Barry Sanders, and Erik Dickerson.. and if Bo Jackson had ever played football seriously...

    18 game seasons will only make it harder IMHO, teams will be carrying 2 running backs and split time, 18 games is a lot of beatings.. I really hope they don't do an 18 game season.

    Oh ok. Makes sense. We know the jags and titans story...always tough. and yeah, sure, the eagles pose an issue.

    on nfl.com, irvin & deion mention him (they only name him & their 2 actual choices)

    deion chose matthews which is a decent choice
    irvin chose LT (wtf! to be fair deion just said 'thats it.. im leaving! after he chose LT). one of the rare occassions i actually found deion funny

    C'mon... you don't give us one iota of credit until after we prove something. Take the Chiefs off your list, & I agree 100%. It ain't gonna happen.

    As far as the Chiefs.... they may look good now, but them suckers ain't faced the Texans yet.

    The Texans have the best, in my opinion, running attack in the NFL.
    There's your "iota."

    I'm itchin' to see what this team looks like post bye-week. If they lose
    EITHER of the next two games, expect me to become even MORE of
    an a-hole. LOL.
