    I know its early and we JUST got win #1, but what the hell.

    The Jaguars looked ok today but i credit that to the (vikings). We will have to stop MJD and Jennings, which i think they will get theirs i still see this as a pretty big win.

    Although i do see foster gaining about 120 yards on the ground.

    Texans 31

    Jaguars (17) - Only because our D cant slow down the Jags run game.

    Lol, probably not the best time to ask people for predictions. The Jags are an improved team. We'll have to play a lot better next week to win. That's the only prediction I can provide right now.

    I watched quite a bit of that game. It is difficult to win on the road in the NFL and they took the lead with around 30 seconds left. To think we're just going to stroll in there and beat them with no problem is foolish. We'll have to play better.

    I'm not saying it will be easy but they are far from a good team.

    Great response...... I'm guessing you didn't watch the game. This is the NFL where on any given Sunday any team can win. I'm sure the 8 point favored Saints didn't think they would get beat by a rookie QB and a no name running back too.

    I understand that but that will not change my opinion that the Jags are not good.

    We got beat by a 2-14 team on the road last year. A team doesn't have to be good to win a game. The Jags also beat the Ravens down at home last year. They now have a good receiver and a QB with a year's worth of experience under his belt. We'll probably be 3-5 point favorites, but that doesn't mean they're just going to show up and give us the game. It will be their home opener and they'll be ready to play.

    You are not listening are you? I am not saying we can't lose or that it will be easy. Simply that I think we are much better they are not good and we will win.

    No I'm not listening because this is a message board and I can't hear you. I did read it however and you're not getting my point. My initial post only stated that they are an improved team and we'll need to play better to win. You took it somewhere else making a sarcastic reply about them looking top notch today. I'm going to chalk it up to you being drunk or dumb. Either way I'm moving on.

    I think we'll come out with the win, but it'll be close mainly for the following reasons:

    1. MJD and Jennings will get theirs against out run D.

    2. Their run D and defense in general is fairly stout, their problems last year was on the offensive side of the ball.

    3. A combination of us typically not playing our best in Jacksonville and them playing us decently on their home turf. Last year, I believe it came down to McCain having to make a play on 4th down as they were driving in the final minute of the game.

    No negativity, just saying we need to play better. If you polled all of the Texans players I'm sure they would agree.

    This is true, and the big reason why I'm not worried about the season going forward. On the positive side Newton played well today. I'm honestly getting excited about his potential. The Jags game is going to boil down to execution. MJD will probably be getting the start so we'll have our hands full keeping him in check. If we can get in Gabbert's head I think we'll be good. I don't want him to get any confidence in the first qtr.
