    Well it’s finally here. I’ve been waitin all week
    Just to kick this thing off.
    I’ve been rockin away on the edge of my seat,
    Now I’m ready to roll.
    Here they come to mix things up.
    Bet your boots they know what I’m talkin about (Speaking).

    Let’s get ready to root for our team.
    All you Texans, get up and scream.

    It’s football time in Houston!
    And we’re ready to play.
    We’ve got no time to lose now,
    It’s red’n white and blue today.

    Welcome to the greatest City of all.
    Houston Texas!
    Are you ready for some football?

    It can rain, it can pour, it can snow, I don’t care.
    I’m here till the end.
    The spirit of vict’ry is blowin round in the air,
    We’re gonna win.

    I’m so excited that we’re all here.
    I love the sound of those home town cheers!

    Men, women, girls and boys, get on your feet
    Make some noise!

    It’s football time in Houston!
    And we’re ready to play.
    We’ve got now time to lose now,
    It’s red’n white and blue today.

    Welcome to the greatest City of all.
    Houston Texas!
    Are you ready for some football?
    (Speaking)
    Courage…
    Pride…
    Independence…
    And tradition…
    Strength

    The Texans are about to march.
    TORO’s getting ready to charge!

    It’s football time in Houston!
    And we’re ready to play.
    We’ve got now time to lose now,
    It’s red’n white and blue today.

    Welcome to the greatest City of all.
    Houston Texas!
    Are you ready for some football?

    I'm going to be looking for several things when I watch the Texans VS Saints on both sides of the ball...


    A.) I want to see a runningback emerge who we can depend on instead of having to rotate people in and out. If we can get one go-to guy and then have a goaline back and a 3rd down back we're good to go.

    B.) Kareem Jackson and the rest of the DBs. When I think of the Saints, I think of an arieal attack and what better way to test the strength of your DBs then to watch them play against one of the best passing offenses in the NFL.

    C.) I like to see Earl Mitchell get some more playing time (not sure if he has). I've heard good things about him and I want him to get plenty of playing time if he proves himself during the preseason.

    D.) The offensive line...the Saints have an okay defensive line with Sedrick Ellis and Will Smith so I want to see good blocking from our offensive line and good pass protection from our tackles.

    E.) The kicking battle rages on, I like to see how Rackers does on kickoff and field goal attempts.


    There is probably more but this all I could think of...GO TEXANS!

    the announcers said that demeco was different last game trying to excite the defense and it seemed to work. i'm most looking forward to seeing if mario williams brings that intensity again and if demeco's found a way to get him properly motivated.

    by the way, is the cardinal's right tackle still in orbit?

    Alright Gary, heres to hoping you're our good luck Gameday thread Starter! :texflag:

    I just hope we don't come out flat and have to play catch up. I want too see that offensive attack the Texans ended last season, with an actual running game to go with it. If that happens, that could be scary for opposing defenses. :hide:

    I was surprised it took this long for a gameday thread to pop up so I just went ahead and started it.

    These are the main things I'm looking for -

    1. How Kareem Jackson does against Brees when the Saint's 1st offense is out
    2. The running game
    3. How much pass rush we can generate while the starters are out there

    The Texans need to be on the hunt for a RB to replace Tate. Nothing that happens tonight should change that.

    According to some posters here, the kicking battle doesn't exist. :shrug:

    I'm interested in how all aspects of our game goes when the two 1st strings are on the field. Playing New Orleans this week and Dallas next week will tell us a whole lot about this team.

    I'm ready!! :fans:
