Great game last night. Can't ask for a better way to kickoff the season than with an overtime game.
goreds...very nice win. The Steeler defense drops from great to good without Polamalu though.
blyons...Tennessee looked really good even though they lost, so I wouldn't be too down today if I was a Titan fan. I am looking forward to the game next week...I think you guys might beat us pretty good.
I've followed the Texans since the beginning. And it's been a real struggle to see the same things year after year. I had real high hopes when they got Matt. But every year he gets hurt. My fear for the Texans is that they have gotten used to losing. When that happens it can be hard to overcome that mindset. Look at the rebuilding-since-1957 Detroit Lions.
Kubiak is going to find himself squarely on the hot seat.
I agree but I don't totally fault him. I fault the drafting and front office. They have GOT to be smarter in their drafting and they need to keep their eye out for a QB. This next year there's going to be some big QB's coming up.
You make good points on the draft...I don't deny they picked a few good players. But it hasn't meant Wins. I was SO glad when they got rid of Casserly.
They need to pick up a QB regardless of what Matt does.
I just don't think Kubiak brings the kind of intensity you need to win in the NFL. The thing that makes Pittsburgh so great is the fire they play with. I don't see that coming from the Texans.
The Jets got an inspirational pre-game speech from their head coach. He had his team prepared to play, then got it emotionally ready as well.
I asked a Texan about Kubiak's pre-game speech, and the player shook his head and laughed.
Where in th hell was the Titans D? Titans lost, Huskers got robbed. Damn crappy birthday weekend for me.
