    File this under the "Very Incouraging News" dept.
    Detroit's defense gives up 250+ passing yds and 421+ total yds/game. They've given up an average of 31.8 pts/game this season.

    The bad news is we've given up an avg of 31.6 pts/game. If Kitna's back, and on his game, this could be a shootout.

    It can be, but I can easily see the Texans winning this game. The next 3-4 games the Texans have will be very winnable.

    That's what scares me. We don't do well with good fortune. We came off a 3 great games to start last season with a lot of swagger and then had a huge letdown against the Falcons and almost coughed up a game against the Dolphins. Then we went on the streak from hell.

    And just think if we could have pulled out the W against the Jags and Colts and then had the next line of winnable games.

    I hope we see Dan O instead of Kitna. I am confident that at home we can win this game as long as we dont allow Williams and Johnson to go hog wild against our secondary who I like more now than I did 5 weeks ago.

    I don't think it matters who they put back there. Even if our D gives up there usual 4 TD's, our O is going to score 40 on this team.

    I just hope our guys practice hard all week and come out Sunday afternoon and take care of business. Growing up as a team includes winning the games you're supposed to win.

    I am bringing a couple of Lions fans to the game this weekend. I have a $100 bet on the season with one of them that the Texans will have more victories.

    I hope Orlovsky plays.

    Well I wasn't really a fan of the Texans back then so I can't really comment on that:fans: . However, we could of easily won against Jax and Indy, but we didn't. We did learn from our mistakes, and I think that showed, somewhat, in yesterday's game. Hopefully this team keeps learning from their mistakes, and improves each week. Maybe, just maybe, we will see the Texans win their first SuperBowl. Is it farfetched? Yeah, but its possible.

    Throw in Carr, who sacks himself, and you have quite a party.

    That's some funny stuff. I saw it on NFL Network last night. It was just so funny because he had no idea, hell he was rolling out trying to be Steve Young. :superman:

    I just hope the texans don't take either of them for granted! Were not good enough to do that yet:texflag:

    just ask the 'Skins or the Giants about taking hungry teams for granted.

    How can you call yourself a Texan fan by omitting the Cowboys? :)
