Game Day Texans at Redskins

Thats only good news. NFL gameday is still showing McNabb as questionable with a neck injury.

For the Texans, they are listing Rackers as probable with an illness, Antonio Smith as probable, and a couple of others. Nothing to worry about by the looks of it.

Perhaps having that Latino reporter trot up and down the sidelines might distract Clinton Portis. If I was at the game I would love nothing more then to bust out with a big poster with her face on it!

Go Texans!
By the looks of the Steelers/Titans game, we can run Foster all day on the Titans. All day on the Colts. Not sure if the Jags are easy to run on.

If they are, then Schaub and the WR's numbers are going to plummet. Because if you can run the ball, you often end up winning the game unless other freak things happen.

The downside of us MAYBE finally having a for-real running game is that you got to go with the hot hand (Foster) and that might mean dialing back the passing game. Not all the way, but less passing than we're accustomed to.

Go Texans! We need to bring the same intensity level that we brought last week vs the Colts. If we do that then we will be ok.
I would hope that we've gotten past the tendency to let down after a big win also. Guess we'll find out in 1 1/2 hours.

If the Cougars were smart, they would fire what's-his-name and hire Mike Leach.

Could you imagine the recruits he could bring in now that he'd be coaching a team in Houston? It would be amazing.

That's the sort of program that a guy like Leach could take to the next level. I firmly believe that Leach, had he still been the coach in Lubbock this year, would have won the Big 12. OU and UT are not as dominant this year as they had been in the past.

Wherever Leach goes, he's going to make them better. I think he could make UH better. Don't they have a plan in place for a new stadium, too? See, grabbing the Pirate could really get the ball rolling on that plan.

Wrong thread GP. (I did that today myself...lol)

I think Nebraska is far and away the best team in the Big 12 so far. I'm not entirely sold that Tech would win the South, but their chances would be much better than they are under Tuberville.

If Sumlin is lured elsewhere I think Leach would be a phenomenal hire. Leach would be an upgrade over Sumlin, but it would NOT be smart to fire Sumlin and hire Leach. The PR hit in firing a black guy that has rebuilt your program for what would be portrayed as a white retread that failed elsewhere (not saying the perception would be true. Leach got jobbed by the Tech Admins) would not be pretty. I could see there being a serious recruiting hit due to players refusing to go there.

Not to mention, Al Sharpton and that local Malcom X-wannabe coming in to make their own noise, along with God knows who else. It would be a nightmare for everyone in the area.

.. and then?

I just tuned into the Steeler game - 16-3 to start the 4th. Is that what the Steelers have been doing? Guess they've shut down C. Johnson?

Oh - just showed a stat - 5 turnovers... no wonder.

EDIT - they just brought in ol man Collins!

Why am I still seeing Bengals-Ravens on SUnday Ticket here at my house?

Is our game not until 3:15? I figured it would be a 3:00 broadcast and then kickoff at 3:15.

I hope I am not missing any of the game right now, to watch the Bengals run out the rest of the clock and easily win the game!

And now they have switched over to the Steelers-Titans game.

And now they switched to the Chiefs game.

And switched back to the Titans game 5 seconds later. LOL.

I. Want. My. Texans. NOW.

Go Texans!
Still not seeing the game on a DAMN expensive SundayTicket subscription.

Oh, beautiful. Let's watch 3 minutes of commercials while we're at it. As if that's not a solid kick to the nuts right now.

Who the hell do I call to complain about this crap? If I paid $50 a year...I could understand. I pay a LOT MORE THAN THAT. I don't need this crap.

They should have went immediately to the game for me.

Note to self: Late afternoon games SUCK.

Nothing but delayed broadcasts and a freaking Game Break Update highlight package of other games every damn 3 minutes.

Go Texans!
Told you guys. Dink and dunk passes, high percentage completion stuff for McNabb. Going to dink and dunk all day on little crossing routes and hitches.

.. and then?
Portis not impressing on 2 runs... now if the pass D can step up - esp on these slants.

Go Texans!
Good way to shut down the Skins on 3rd down. Didn't even gain a yard.

Skins FG is good, Skins 3 and Texans 0.
