    I have been waiting for this every since the Ravens playoff game ended... which I still hate to think about. :pissed:

    I'm actually psyched for a preseason game! [​IMG]

    I wonder if Joel Myers has brushed up on the Texans player's names this offseason? Another thing, will we actually get REAL HD this time around?

    It's on Channel 13 at 6:00 BTW.

    Pay attention to Davin Meggett, those of you who can watch the game. He is not getting the praise that Grimes is getting, but when the Texans UDFA class was announced, I (and I want to say a couple other guys agreed) thought he had the better chance to stick on the roster.

    I don't think we can watch it on NFL Network if they're showing it on 13. Last year, they blacked out that channel and I had to watch it on ABC 13. (I have Directv)

    Maybe this year they won't. I hate channel 13. They only want to hear themselves talk and Bob Allan gets on my nerves.

    I live in Corpus so I'm hoping it doesn't get blacked out.

    You should be fine. I just think they were forcing us locals to watch the local channel.

    No kidding. The local yocals on channel 13 are horrible. I might turn off the TV sound and listen to audio on the radio.

    I was one of those, I really liked what he did at Maryland and thought he'd be a good system fit. That said, I went to practice last week and Grimes looked better. Maybe game day will prove different.

    Shouldn't matter much though. Forsett looks real good so whoever doesn't get cut between the two (Grimes & Meggett) will get practice squaded.

    So pumped for this game. LOTS to watch for in this one.

    QB - We all know Matt is the starter, but how has Yates progressed and how is Case and Beck picking up on the scheme and tempo?

    RB - Look for Foster to come out strong and make us all feel good, but pay attention to Tate. I have heard he looks heavy and a little unmotivated, but could be bias from someone I know. How are the younger backs and Forsett coming along? We need some of the younger guys to prove themselves to make Tate possible trade bait in the off-season (or maybe this pre-season??)

    WR - We need to see how AJ fares after another minor injury. Walter better get back to his old form of making great catches and moving the chains, how has Martin and Posey progressed? WHat about Jean and Maehl, will they step up this season? Also, pay attention to Holliday, can he make this roster as a wideout and help us on special teams?

    TE - Is OD back to old form and who will be his primary back up? Lots of good things about Graham and Casey, which will take the number 2 job?

    OL - LOTS of moving pieces here. RG and RT seem to be slightly in the air (RG being more so). Can the rookie over come Caldwell (I hope so!!!)

    DL - Our starters are set (but who will take the lead at NT?), our depth leaves much to be desired, will someone step up?

    LB - Our deepest position became even more deep with Mercilus, will Barwin or Reed step backwards this season? Who will take the role of ILB next to Cushing this season and will Brians new role be as effective?

    CB - After JJo there is a big fat ?. Is Jackson the guy or will Harris or McCain take over? This could be a problem for us again this season especially the depth.

    S - Quin and Manning are locked, but who can show off their skills to play a big role when Quin drops down to corner? Nolan, Keo or Demps?

    P - I love me some Hartmann but he is coming off injury AND is suspended the first few games, will Gary and Rick keep him around, what about is Jones has a massive pre-season?

    K - Bullock and Graham are in a dead heat, who will prevail?!?!

    My biggest concerns, secondary, more so corners, the NT spot and the depth at wide out.

    Lots to pay attention to and I am PUMPED!!!!
