Sooooo, what's youns guys take on the Steelers this weekend?
They'll win by a large margin.
I'm hoping for a complete reversal, but honestly I might as well prepare myself for a loss. I don't think it will be near as ugly as Buffalo(hope not anyway) but if they surprise me and play well enough to pull out a win, I'd love to be wrong.
Being from Pittsburgh, I know both coaches all to well. Cowher in NO WAY will try to run the score up on Houston, and one of his favorite past coaches. They will run 85% of the time, grinding it out, making it the most boring game of the year to attend. If we blitz, our only chance, forcing Big Ben to read defenses, we may get a few turnovers. Our Offense, with Capers pulling the strings and not permitting Palmer to throw down field against so-so corners for the Steelers, or use three step drops, the Texans will play right into the heart of the Burgh, Run stuffing!!!! Carr throws for 150 yds, 3 ints, against a brilliantly run defense. Pittsburgh dominates!!!!
Steelers - 24
Houston - 3
Screw it. This team is completely unpredictable anyway.
This is how you turn around a season!
Pittsburgh - 117
Houston - 9
Carr throws 8 INT's and is sacked 17 times before getting benched. Banks and Ragone both get sacked and injured on their first play. Jabar Gaffney enters the game at QB to lead the offense to its only touchdown.
Man I cant wait got a nice lux box to watch the game in. the homer in me wants the Texans to pull one out and set the mark for the season. But the truth is we have a terrible OC and a good frustrated QB that needs to learn to throw while on his ***. I gotta go with the Burg.
On our 1st offensive possesion, Carr hits Andre on the quick out, Andre breaks the 1st tackle, puts a move on the 2nd guy and he's gone, 75yards later we're up by 6 just like that.
Steelers 1st possesion, they run all 3 times, and we slam it shut on them...they punt, and P Buch shows he can do it, makes a nifty return for 85 yards and we're now up by 14!
Steelers next possesion, after a block in the back penalty on the kick off, little Ben starts flinging it and Dunta makes a pick...from here on out, it's Domanick left and Domanick right, he gets 2 TDS on the day and 145 yards, the steelers go back to the rust belt 1-1 and we go to the bye week 1-1 and all is good in the Texans Nation!
Battle Red Bunch Rules!!!
REMEMBER these simple rules:
1. When we have the ball on offense, QUIET until the snap.
2. When the opposing team has the ball on offense, NOISE.
3. Repeat until victory is ours.
Thanks for the laugh....I really needed it this morning....
I'm going with my original prediction 2 months ago. I knew we were going to lose to Buffalo on opening day (just not quite in the fashion that they did).
But I'm going for a complete turnaround this weekend.
I think the Texans play much better than last week, but lose.
Pittsburgh 27, Texans 20
What I'm really thinking is something like:
But, hey, at least we can show off our new stadium to them!
That is right..David Carr, AJ and DD take it to the STEELERS and we WIN!!!
Well I was wrong when I felt we'd beat Buffalo in the season opener so here's hoping I'm wrong again.
Steelers - 27
Texans - 20
The only way to beat the Steelers is to spread them out with the passing attack. Which offense shows up is anyone guess, but the way we've been playing hasn't been too good. We need to open it up and do as Carr says, be aggressive on offense and not play so conservative. That is our only hope.
Texans get it in gear.
Who wins? I do because it is my first home game in a year. Nonetheless, the Texans 24, Pitt 14.
Iron City beer and Pramanti Borothers cheeseteaks don't travel well, so we may be able to drown out their supporters at the stadium.
By the way, after the game Cowher's jaw bone is put on injured reserve.
Steelers 34-Texans 13
