    So, in the pic, the Texans are praying to the football gods for help, and the 49ers are smelling themselves to see if they need a shower. :kitten:

    No, Texans are pounding the Earth's crust imposing their will on its orbit,

    And Kaepernick overheard someone saying "he stinks this year", so he's checking to see if he's forgotten his monthly shower.

    Can't be, they're in water. No, what I think is happening is Schaub is looking down into the water for the alligator that bit Kaepernick's hand.

    Let's see. Prime time. The Texans need to show the NFL they are in it for real. They should really play wee fueled by anger from past games.

    I've bought this CD already, anyone want to know it ends?

    I think that's Schaub "bringing the thunder" see how the lightning is striking where his fists hit the ground?

    & that's Kaepernick wiping the Jj juice off his lips.

    Check mark time:

    Coaching: 49ers
    QB: 49ers
    RB: Texans by a Tate
    WR: Texans, but kind of moot, since Schaub ignores Nuk until the 4th Q
    TE: 49ers
    OL: 49ers

    DL: Texans, but barely
    LB: 49ers in a landslide
    CB: 49ers
    S: 49ers

    ST: 49ers

    Looks like Patrick Willis might not play (groin) Aldon Smith is still in rehab

    & Cushing is most likely going to play.....


    I agree, 49ers.

    CBs: Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, and Asomugha are better than JJo, KJax, and McCain. The 49ers secondary was better last year and they appear to be better this year, at least based on what JJo and KJax have done so far. And I hate even thinking about McCain.

    ST: I could just leave it at Joe Marciano, and that should be a sufficient answer. But consider that the Texans seldom return kicks out past the 20, despite taking it out constantly, and they never return one for a TD. The return coverage is hit and miss, between penalties and giving up the big return. The 49ers are struggling as well, but their kicker is better than ours and their punter isn't so far behind Lechler that it makes much difference. I could have said push, I suppose, so if it makes you happy, we can agree that both teams have crap ST.

    I agree with most but I think we win the TE category... Davis - hamstring and who is they second TE?

    I hope the Texans can make a huge statement here. It looks like another prime-time pivotal game on the schedule, but I realistically have my doubts.

    At the beginning of the season, I thought we would win two of these last three games (Ravens, Seahawks, 49'ers) but after what McClain calls a monumental collapse at the hands of the Seahawks, I had to change my outlook. Honestly, if we can get out of San Fran with a narrow loss and no injuries in front of another national audience, at this point I would be happy. I just cannot see us going into their stadium and pulling off a win after the way we've played thus far in the season.

    Even though our defense has played respectfully the last few games, there has been very few turnovers come our way. It's time for the flip-flop where the offense is respectable and the defense hams it up. I can see Wade already...:wadepalm:



    Did you know that 9 points, yes...only 9 points have separated the Texans from being an 0-4 team?

    I think our D matches up well with the 9ers. Any team that runs a lot and has pass plays that take a while to develop, our d matches up well with them.

    On offense, we can move the ball against anyone.

    9ers are going to come out hungry at home. They need the win. We do too.

    I don't know what to think of the prime time stuff. I don't buy into it really, but the record there is undeniable.

    I'm giving this one to the 9ers. I think the 9ers have a more explosive offense and I think Schaub is going to play tight. 9ers get some pressure and he starts to shrink under the heat. I think he throws at least one pick this game.

    35-21 9ers.

    Texans either jump out early and are stifled late or they struggle early and get some garbage time love.

    If we win, there is no statement. The 49ers were held to 3 points by the Seahawks & 7 by the Colts. They look more mediocre (actually plagued by injury) than anything this year. If we win.... I feel like it's going to be a "you should have won" kind of thing.

    If we lose, then it's a statement by the 49ers... that they shouldn't be overlooked & they have every intention of being in the Super Bowl again.

    This is the first reason why I have no doubts they are going to physically man handle the Niners. That meeting yesterday was a come to jesus meeting holding every damn person in the locker room accountable to each other. The fact that Arian called it says a ton on its own. Arina hasn't been very vocal since he dropped twitter and started hating the media.

    This team will play inspired and god help whoever stands in there way.

    PERIOD.
