    Texans by 10 then two good weeks of practice and another big win in little d.

    That puts us 2-3 and the j-ville game back here will a long shot imho.

    Texans lose in a stunner. Culpepper returns to form, and their OL gives up only 1 sack.

    The dolphins team is very talented. On offense they have a top 5 receiver in chambers, a stud with R. Brown, and a QB who has lost his way (Culpepper).
    Their defense is pretty stout, with a great DE in taylor and one of the best MLBs in the league in Thomas.

    They are just like the Redskins - a predicted contender who has suffered a terrible start and has lost their way.

    I really, really hope I'm wrong and will be cheering louder than ever (we have the best shot at winning this as compared with the previous 3).

    Go Texans prove me wrong!!

    (PS I have predicted a win every other week and we've lost, so maybe this anti-jinx jinx will help!)

    If this defense doesn't come up with something different than it's done the 1st 3 weeks, like maybe blitz, or even stop somebody on 3rd down, or be closer than 5 yards to the guy catching the ball, or something crazy like that, I don't see them winning against anyone.

    Texans 24-17.:tease:

    i'm really not sure, but i went texans by 7+. 3 things are going to happen this season, and i hope they happen this week but might not be there yet.

    we get aggressive on defense (purely coaching ... rushing 4, admitting it, and failing to adjust is simply pathetic)
    mario stops thinking and starts playing
    our offensive gameplan becomes more stable and the coaching staff gets more comfortable on that side.

    all of those feel like they're about to happen, but havent yet. hopefully they come together this sunday. if they do, i think we're going to win big. if they dont ... well, which quarterback record would culpepper like?

    Texans lose 24-13.........Carr looks impressive again but our defense just cant stop Ronnie Brown........Mario has 5 tackles and 1 sack

    I'm taking the Texans by 7+. I expect our D to be aggressive this week after Kubes called them out.

    I'm a little crazy this weekend. I'm predicting that the Texans beat the Dolphins AND the Cougars beat the Hurricanes.

    I base this entirely on a prediction made by the world famous rabbit with a pancake on it's head. Here he is now.

    I think that if these things happen then Miami newspapers are going to be real fun to read come Monday.

    Is that like a cheaper substitute for Miss Cleo? I don't know how to read pancake but I'm sure that rabbit eats a lot less and can reside in smaller living quarters than a personal Miss Cleo. If it turns out accurate I might need to research such a thing.

    demeco , seth, TJ, and Dunta are gonna stuff the run, and mario, weaver and babin are gonna force the passing game out of rythym. I see a 28-10 Texans win, maybe better. 28 might seem like a lot against their D but I see us gettin a couple easy scores off our defense, and Carr is Money for 2 TD drives of his own. call me a homer, I'm sticking with it.

    Indeed. This team has given us nothing to base any confidence on, so I predict a career day in Culpepper's near future.

    :fortune: I see a great 4th quarter in David Carr's future, too


    Dolphins - 37
    Texans - 28

    If I had to pick between which Houston team is more likely to beat their respective Miami counterpart then I'd have to go with the Cougars beating the Hurricanes.

    As for the poll I'm feeling pretty optimistic so I went with the Dolphins beating us by less than 7. I hope I'm wrong & I hope this defense has a bad taste in their mouths from these first three games and are prepared to step up to the plate this Sunday. However, I've got no reason to believe they'll perform any better than they have so far.

    Let me please put this in perspective:
    Houston:
    29th in total offense
    32nd in total defense

    Miami:
    26th in total offense
    7th in total defense

    A bad offense (Miami) going against a terrible defense (Houston) = lots of points
    A very bad offense (Houston) going against a great defense (Miami) = few points

    The stats say this will be a bad Sunday
