Are You Ready For Some Football?

Break out the beer and the chips, NFL football is back. Now it's for real. NBC has the opening salvo with Miami and Pittsburgh. I'm guessing that the Steelers should win this but you never know.

Sunday our Houston Texans take on the Philidelphia Eagles. Let's see, new coach, new system, new players, including #1 draft pick Mario Williams, new attitude. Will the Texans be for real this year? We shall see. Pre-season they were 3-1. That was one of their best. But pre-season victories don't always translate to a good season. Of course after a 2-14 season, anything would be an improvement. On the other hand they could go 1-15. Not likely, though some think that a 3-13 season would be a moral victory of sorts.

Gary Kubiak is a no-nonsense type of guy. I dont think he will stand for the lack of offense and defense that the team had last year. Let's face it, they were awfull last year. So far the number one draft choice of Mario Williams has yet to really prove much. DeMeco Ryans has impressed more people. What will Heismen Trophy winner, Ron Dayne add to the team? Will David Carr do better with the new system? He'd better. Too many people have put all their hopes onto his shoulders. Sage Rosenfels has looked very good at QB.

So, where will the Texans finish? 12-4, 10-6, ha,ha,ha. We shall see. Go Texans!

And Hook 'em Horns and Roll Tide!

Your Texans won't do any better than our Lions. We've been trying to "restore the roar," a.k.a. "restore the snore," for as long as I can remember. Our preseason consisted of 1 win.

Unless you're having your hearts broken by the 49ers for yet another year, you really should not be complaining. We are ready to drink hemlock out on the west coast.

I think we'll all be surprised in the Texans. I just know they are going to have a better year. Keep the faith! :-)
