    Predictions for 9/12

    Weather: Clear & 89° (Roof Open)

    Tailgate Menu: Shrimp & Bacon Brochettes, Beef & Chicken Fajitas

    Final Score: Texans 20 Chargers 13 (Texans cover spread of -4.5 points)
    All 4 of Texan scores come off of Charger turnovers. Tomlinson catches late TD pass to make score look closer.

    Texans tied for AFC South lead after Week 1.

    Arrive home in time to watch Vikings finish off Cowgirls 24-0.

    Perfect Sunday. :)

    My "2004, prior to the season even starting, I am so certain of this that I'd bet the farm" prediction is that the Texans will begin the 2004 season 2-0.

    Count on it.

    Slightly off topic, but wanted to point out that the Texans' compatriots have some tough games at the front end of their schedules:

    Week 1:
    Indianapolis at New England
    Jacksonville at Buffalo
    Tennessee at Miami

    All away games. Indy/NE is obviously going to be a tough grudge match. Buffalo/Bledsoe start strong and Buffalo has a good D. Miami is obviously ailing on O but the D is good and other than when they play undefeated on opening day teams they are generally pretty strong in home openers.

    Week 2:
    Denver at Jacksonville
    Indianapolis at Tennessee

    Obviously one of the top two teams in the division is going home with a loss this weekend with a strong opponent for the third team.

    Week 3:
    Green Bay at Indianapolis
    Jacksonville at Tennessee

    Same deal.

    Week 4:
    Indianapolis at Jacksonville
    Tennessee at San Diego

    OK so TN should have it easy, but at least one more loss in the division still.

    We or course face San Diego, Detroit, KC and Oakland. Sure would be nice if the Texans could start strong through this period and build confidence and momentum.

    I want to reverse my pick. We are nothing but a bunch of homers.

    We may be a bunch of homers but I think this time we have good reason.

    2-0 on opening day: I contribute this to Dom Capers having the extra time to prepare hard for that first game.

    At Home: We are already tough at home as is, even if only a handful of wins.

    So put us at home on opening day against a struggling franchise? I like our chances :boxing:

    Fine. But can you give some compelling reasons as to why the Chargers will win? At least last year against the Dolphins I could say, "The Texans never lose on opening day".

    Everyone, let's pray for the Texans to toss the Chargers out of Reliant Stadium. I mean they have La Danian Tomlinson, but he won't be scoring touchdowns in the Texans' house.

    We owe the Chargers from season 1 when they man-handled us. Saou (sp) acted like an *** ( never a taunting call btw ). Too bad his old butt doesnt still play for them. No way the Texans lose this game. Im also looking for revenge on Jacksonville and the sucker hit on our kick returner.

    The only times I'll be praying for the Chargers to have a shot at winning will be when they are playing everyone else in our division.

    I think this opening game is a lock for the Texans. But if you polled the Dolphins last year, how many of them thought the same thing for their home opener? (SOOOO glad I was there to see that!) I really hope Capers stays on these guys about focusing and not taking this opener lightly. It's probably the team's best chance to win back-to-back games all season.
