Lets Get this Party started. here we come Oh Holy ones of the south
Lets this Game Begin.
HELL YA,,TIME TO PLAY SOME FOOTBALL..What is the blue Crew having to eat today?are we doing a theme?........EELLL
our offensive tackles scare me...
Excited to see Tate for the first time and more of Braman/Jean. Should be a fun game. This 2011 Texans team reminds me of the 2009 Saints team.
Somebody needs to get Schaub about 5 Monster drinks to get him started before the game.
Or someone needs to make sure he brings his game at the start instead of leaving it in the locker room and retrieving it at half time.
Here is what I will be watching/hoping:
1. The Mario transition to OLB. I would love to see a sack, but if he puts pressure that leads to incomplete passes, that will be fine.
2. J Jo will be in the game. I want to see how the DB group looks with a legitimate CB and legit Safety.
3. I want to see if Ben Tate can contribute meaningful snaps. I would love to see Foster's carries slashed in half this season and evenly distributed between Ward and Foster.
4. I want to see the newbies make an impact: ie. Watt, Jean, Reed, etc.
5. I want to see the Texans march down the field on Offense and play stout D.
Don't forget Cush's "rubber season" starts today. Will we have the rookie or sophmore version this year?
GAMEDAY BABY WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who Dat Gonna beat those:
I'm thinking a 'practice quarter' before the real game, that should get em' started!
Just a few more hrs!
Colston, who was held back last week has been released to go tonight. He's coming off of microfracture knee surgery so I don't know what to expect from him.
I want to see the first-team offense come out and look like they aren't the ones learning a new system. Perhaps we need to start Schaub in a no-huddle offense?
As for defense... Will Watt look as comfortable as he did against the Jets? Will our D-Line manage to avoid the GAPING holes (when the 1s were on the field) in the middle of the line? Will a REAL NT please stand up?
I'm tired of talking about this team's 'potential'. It's time to start enforcing our will on the other team.
I hope DE Will Smith plays significant reps to test out how good Schaub's protection is. I don't know how much he plays since he will probably be banned from the first 4 games of the season (StarCaps).
As of yesterday, Kubiak put Joseph's chances of playing tonight at 50-50. Hopefully he's healthy enough to play, but if he needs an extra week, let's hope they let him have it.
You dipsticks better be fixing some good GAME FOOD tonight.
You owe it to yourselves. You went through lockout hell. We all did. So get creative and fix something GOOD for goodness sake.
I better not hear of anybody eating a Totino's pizza or a frickin' El Patio tv dinner or some crappy turkey and mayo sandwich.
I'm doing RIBS tonight. Homemade ribs and some beans. And beer. Photo to be posted, as usual. I just need a name for the ribs. Last week, I had "High WATTage Jalapeno Shrimp poppers."
I need a clever name for my ribs.
We have a big fish fry going on here! You name it we have it! Crab, lobster, catfish, salmon, trout, and pretty much anything else you can think of! I am pretty sure they are having a big cookout down the street, too.
