    At least its the 3rd game and we should see the most minutes from our starters. I'll take it.

    EDIT:
    Houston Texans Preseason Schedule:

    at Kansas City (Aug. 13-17)
    vs. New Orleans (Aug. 20-24)
    vs. Minnesota (Aug. 31) Monday, ESPN, 8 p.m. ET
    at Tampa Bay (Sept. 3-4)

    Nighmare scenario. Jared Allen takes out Schaub's knee again, Sage carves up the Texans defense to the tune of 300 yards and 4 TD's. "We Should Never Have Traded Rosencopter" threads begin appearing like mildew in a shower.

    Texans sign only FA QB they can find. HWWNBN begins second stint as Texans starter.

    Unfortunately, for the Giants anyway, the Giants love him for some reason and signed him to an extension.

    I hope this doesn't ruin our chances of getting a regular season nationally televised game. I'm not going to lie, I'm happy and worried with this news.

    I think people are thinking way too much here in terms of negativity.

    Examples... the Browns played the Giants in the 3rd week in preseason on Monday night. Then played each other again in the regular season on Monday night in Oct. Not to mention the Browns were scheduled for 3 total in the regular season after that. The Packers played in preseason week 2 on Monday night, then opened up the regular season on Monday night. In fact, only 3 of the 8 teams to play on ESPN in pre-season last year did not make a real Monday night game.

    Wasn't last year's preseason game against the Cowboys nationally televised? I remember watching it on CBS with Ian Eagle and Phil Simms as the announcers.

    Edit: Nevermind. It says host a nationally televised game.

    I agree. There were so many bad teams that became good last year that there may not be enough room for the Texans. You know the Dolphins, Falcons, 49ers and Cardinals will get primetime games. Add to that the regular teams that always get national exposure and the number of slots for the Texans becomes small.

    I do think, however, the Texans will get one nationally televised game. It may be an NFL Network game, but at least it's something.

    Have you read this somewhere or are you just speculating? I've had a feeling Colts/Texans would have a prime-time game this year after the game last year... :gun:

    The team should give out battle red beanie hats with the helicopter propeller blades in them.

    Does anyone know when the regular season schedule gets announced. I'm pretty sure it should happen next week. I think it traditionally happens in the first half of April.

    Nice of you to get me excited, and only to get let down. I want to negative rep you, but I'm not that mean.

    What we have going for us is big games vs. Indy, Titans, NE at home, Jets at home, and we do play the Dolphins, 49ers, and the Cardinals... 3 of the 4 teams you mentioned. And we are going to continue to be the trendy pick to break out this year. Oh, and I definitely think we did our part last year against Jax... the crowd, the party, and the play. I see a couple of Nat Televised games for us.

    I think last year they initially said it would be released on April 5th but then it got pushed back to the 18th or around that time. As for this year, I haven't heard anything. Anyone?

    True. I think we may have a primetime game against the Cardinals, Titans, and Indy. NE is a possibility, too. We'll see. I'm hoping we get a Sunday Night Game at home.
