    That was an actual text message from a buddy who is, normally, an arrogant Dallas Cowboy fan. He has had a long night, and things are a bit tense in Cowboy-land right now.

    I wasn't talking any smack. In fact, I was trying to console him. I'm taking it even keel this week. I'm confident, but not crazy.

    Talking sh*t is what Cowboy fans do. Texans make their statement by leaving it all out on the field.

    exactly...dont run smak just run facts. I understand the op was just relaying the text, but it gives us a good chance to remind Texans fans to stay classy and let Cowboy fans provide us with the rope and if the Texans win we can then use whatever smack they ran at us and remind them of it.

    After the fight the Skins gave us, I am NOT talking any smack.

    I'm even going to prepare myself that we can lose vs. the Cowboys.

    I will never again underestimate our opponent based on what I saw from a previous week of play. That was a big fat mistake. I was on here last week bragging about how "I see nothing with the Skins and Boys that scares me."

    Well, they got their act together after the Boys game. They can be really good if they continue to play like that. Had they found a running game against us, it would have been u-g-l-y Sunday.

    So, this fan's lips are zipped.

    Agreed.

    I'm a firm believer in the old "Any given Sunday" adage.....

    I think the best approach to the Cowboys is to look at them like you would a cornered animal. I expect them to do just about everything in their power to avoid being 0-3 and I hope the Texans are expecting that too. They have a dangerous offense if they find some consistency and their defense can get after the QB.

    We need to just keep it calm and cool. All week long they'll be dropping little barbs here and there talking about how we've never won a Super Bowl and falling back on their (admittedly) impressive history. Don't respond, just wait till the game is played and see what we get. I don't think the Texans will let us down. Nobody in their right mind thinks we're going to go 16-0 but I'm confident the Texans going to show up for 16 games this year and play 60 minutes. Can't ask for more than that.

    I don't care what Dallas has looked like the first 2 weeks, I don't feel good at all that the 'Boys will be coming in here desperate to avoid starting 0-3.

    This is exactly it. Desperate teams can be very dangerous. The 'Boys will be coming into town with their jobs on the line already in this young season. We cannot come out flat against them, we need to be getting pressure in Romo's face right from the opening kickoff.

    I'm actually very worried about this game. Washington absolutely trashed our secondary, and Dallas' receivers could do more of the same. Our guys will probably be physically exhausted after that performance, and if our dline can't do it's job and force bad throws, I think we're toast.

    That being said, it's just Dallas and not the end of the world if we lose. I don't like them and am forced to be in Cowboy-land, but I would much rather lose this game if it means we get a win in Arlington to cap off the season.

    The Texans need to take on the mindset of the Colts. They just go out
    and look to handle you until there is no more time on the clock. If the final
    score is 31-30, then so be it. It just so happened to be 38-14 last night.

    Last night showed me two things. First. The Colts are still "The Colts."
    Two. The Texans are in the same league as the Colts. They beat the
    Redskins in a fashion the Texans used to lose to the Colts. They got
    down by 17 points at the end of the 3rd quarter, and from that point on
    were challenged by their character not to fold until the final whistle.

    I still don't quite believe it yet, and I don't know how many games it will
    take, that this team can keep its focus for the entire season. I will say:
    "so far, so good."

    Dallas is vary capable of winning this game...

    However, just like last week, I don't think the opposition will come out victorious...

    I could have been completely wrong about the Skins because both teams had a shot at winning that game...

    But we were on the road last week...I think that with the team being at home, a packed reliant stadium...Our first chance in franchise history to go to 3-0...

    I think that place is going to be jumping and I don't think that the team will have any choice but to come out of the gates like hell on wheels...

    The only question in my mind is whether or not they will be able to sustain the intensity that I know they will come out with.

    This. I'm floating around in the same boat right about now. Despite the win, it was a pretty deflating game for me. All those old worries and "here we go agains" cam flooding back with a quickness. I'll just stay cautiously optimistic for this coming Sunday at best.
