    I hope we will see the 1st team for at least the first half.

    I hope we see the first team offense for a quarter or so. We need those guys healthy, because we have a dramatic drop from first to second team. As far as the defense goes if they struggle again I'm sure Dom will leave them in the entire half.

    You'll see the starters longer as the preseason nears an end and players are cut. Nobody wants to see a preseason injury go down, but you've got to get these guys ready for a full game of football come Sunday afternoons.

    This is the preseason game where the first team will be out there the longest. For the final game the starters will barely see the field. That's when they try and make sure nobody important gets lost to an injury. This week is the closest to a real game that we'll get until Buffalo.

    Nice to the see the Cowboys scheduled this week.

    yeah, I seemed to remember that too. It seemed like the last preseason game was as close to a real game as you would get.

    Teams used to play their 1st squads at least 3/4 in the last game. Now they use the next to last for that and the last one is the final look at guys before they do the last cuts.

    Of course we are going to shut them out just like last year. They probably haven't gotten any better and I'm sure we have.

    Actually it will probably be closer, but I think the Texans have the slight edge. Just to throw out numbers, 17-14 Texans.

    Well . . . that being the case . . . would it be too much to ask (and YES, I KNOW it's preseason, and YES, I KNOW there won't be any exotic blitz packages) . . . again, would it be too much to ask the defense to least show any sort of a hint, or give some kind of tiniest indication that they are able to rush the passer . . . against a 33 year old drop-back QB with a suspect O-line?

    Naaaaaaa . . . I guess that would be too much to ask. :rolleyes:

    Game 3 in the pre-season is usually the game where the 1st team plays through the half and one series into the 3rd quarter.

    Make sure all you guys look for the LARGE Texans gathering in the side endzone over the visitors tunnel.

    We will be representing very well for that game.

    This game should be all about kicking Cowboy ***.

    Actually, I predict a bit of pressure against the cowgirls, but that will only get our hopes up for the decimation in buffalo in a few weeks

    Julius Jones does not worry me, it's the cowgirls defense. They had one hell of a draft and have put together quite a defense. It should be a good test for our first team offense.

    My pediction is that we will win by a historical margin with only our third string in the game and the cowgirls will be so ashamed that they will pack up and move to southern Oklahoma where they will start their new lives as gerbil ranchers.

    ...or we will do really good against their passing game so they will resort to running more. Then our offense will pick them apart with DD, Morency and the passing game. Final score 24-7 Texans win.

    We had better have some help over on the left side for the LT to block Ware (an RB and TE???), or David will be spending a lot of time on the ground. If we hold him out of the back field, we should do pretty well against the cowpies. If not, it will be a long night.

    If we beat the boys we will be thumping our chests and saying "alright". :fans:

    If the boys beat us their trolls will be here saying "scoreboard".

    Then in two weeks the real games start and this game will mean zilch, nada except to the guys who played themselves into or out of a place on the team.

    It will be fun to watch the Texans thump :boxing: some cowboy arse though.
