Just a nomadic Texan rolling through to say what's up, and here's to a good and productive preseason game 1 for both teams.
Thank God LJ won't roll up 200+ on us on Saturday.
I've always adimired Chief-style ball, and hope one day my Texans can have fans like the ones who rock Arrowhead.
I'm michaelm on the Texans MB too, so feel free to stop by and butt heads.
I know it's just preseason, but lets f***in get it ON!

Shoutout to Chiesfster on the Texans MB who stopped in with an invite to this site... the reason I dropped in.


edited to say, oops, f-bombs are automatically edited on our boards, no disrespect meant (to the faint hearted)!

Great to see ya here michaelm!!

I too look forward to some friendly "Smack". I went ahead and moved the Topic to the "Smack Talk" forum so we can duke it out. :-D

The Texans will find their niche soon enough, maybe sooner then a lot of people think. A full Reliant Stadium is foreboding; from what I understand Huston has a great fan base.
We expect the Chiefs to perform well, but fear a rebuilding stint is just on the horizon.

WE don't rebuild. We just get used parts.

It will be interesting to see how the first strings match up against each other going full bore. I'm looking for much more production out of our defense this year, and there will be a drop off in the offense, but hopefully enough to kick a little Texan butt this Saturday. :evil:

I'm one of those guys who has a hard time talking smack to fans of a team that handed us our asses last year.
Especially after our 2-14 season.

On the other hand, this is going to be a completely different Texans team than you saw last season.
I don't know if it will be evident so early, but I really think that we will have a dominant DLine this year. I like the 3-4, but I don't think we ever implimented it well, and I'm glad to see it gone...
We take a lot of flack over the Mario pick, but so far the kid is even more than advertised.
It looks like you are seeing some shakeup in your OLine, so you will get more Mario than you want.
To be fair, we have a lot of depth along our line, and there will be more contributors than just Mario. This isn't the front seven that LJ absolutely used last year.
I'd like to thank you for trading for michael bennett... there was much talk of us negotiating with the Aints for him, and personally, he doesn't do much for me. I'm glad we never aquired him, although he will be a decent change of pace style-wise from LJ...
that's all for now...
maybe later I'll come back and we can talk about when the hell are the Chiefs ever going to get a decent reciever or something like that... but that's all for now...

Hey, all in good fun here bud; we appreciate your contribution to the boards, but I understand what your talkin about. If your gonna gun sling you've got to have some ammo. :-D

And youÂ’re right about our "O" line; the shake up has, if nothing else, proved to be a distraction from a fans point of view and fodder for the local media. It will be interesting to see how our revamped "O" line fairs against your improved "D" line. Preliminary reports indicate that the "O" line has been holding their own in training camp and that the acquisition of Turley has proven to be an adequate replacement for the recently retired Roaf. However, my enthusiasm is somewhat tempered until I see the revamped "O" line in game situation against another team. OH, sure they had their scrimmage against the Vikes but from what I understand it wasn't at full speed. We will see Saturday whether or not they can handle Mario.
As for Bennett I think this is a good pick up for us and well worth a number four pick in the 07 draft, hopefully he will provide LJ with the rest needed to keep him fresh in the forth quarter.

Hey, it was great exchanging slap shots with ya, and I hope to see ya back soon! :pint: :-)

Hey!!! Our receivers are much better than decent. They may not be studs but the numbers they are putting up yearly are better than decent. :-x

I would disagree. Our starting receivers would not start on very many other teams in the NFL, if any at all. The best receiver we have is Tony G. The reason our receivers have put up any numbers is because of Trent Green and the running attack that Priest Holmes and LJ provide. Just my opinion.

Honestly speaking I'd say that our receivers have been adequate to the task given the kind of offense that we have run the last five years. Morton shows flashes when properly motivated IMO. Bo was a one season wonder. I think Dante is great; he has the speed necessary to pull away from on-on-one coverage. He is a sure hands guy, but is undersized in close coverage situations. JMHO.

Sorry to hear you disagree. Our receivers still have to catch the balls that Trent throws. Eddie has posted back to back 1000 yard seasons and that just doesn't happen around here. Not saying our receivers are great, but I do feel they are better than just decent.

Just part of teamwork.

...What a noval idea; now if our defense can catch on to that concept. :lol:

Looks as if the new Texans laid the smack down on the old Texans.

I haven't got to see the game yet but from what the radio announcers said; Printers sort of stunk up the place. ...Don't know if that's because he was behind the second and third string lines or because he is better suited for the CFL.

I went to the game, and when I got home, I skimmed through it on DVR.
Printers showed flashes. He had some pretty good head scratchers, but he looks pretty dynamic to me.
Overall, I thought our DL did pretty well against your OL, but LJ had some good lanes for a good bit of his playing time. Your guys opened up the middle really well.
Our OL was suprisingly proficient. I don't think we allowed a sack. I saw more well formed passing pockets in this game than all of last season...
we had a few rookies make good showings... Lundi is a player, no doubt about that, and Chris Taylor looks to make our squad too. Pretty good for a undrafted free agent.
I may have been concentrating too much on my team, but honestly, no one really stood out for you guys other than your regular starters.
And yes, I will admit that I saw your wideouts make some good plays...
Maybe I'm just biased against them because I'm a big fantasy football guy, and your recievers have never really scored that well for me... Odd considering how good your passing game is...

Nice observations!

The Texans looked much better then they did in the regular season game against the Chiefs last season. The Texans "O" Line was getting a nice push up the middle. I saw both good and bad out of our "D". Mitchell did well in the cover 2, and Allen did a good job stopping the run on the Texans first possession, but then they gave up way too many run yards on the second possession ultimately giving up a TD. The Texans second and third teams ran all over the Chiefs second and third teams. The Chiefs would not have scored again had it not been for the mishandled punt at the end.
