    According to ABC 13 here in Houston, Andre Johnson will play. It also looks like Kubiak will be keeping in his starters for a good chunk of the game from the way he has been talking. Wade Phillips will coach from the booth.

    I'm loving this stupid move by Kubiak because we all know a major injury or two will occur with starters making this look all the more dumb.He will regret ever playing these starters.

    They better rest starters if they don't want to be one and done in their first playoffs. We're coming for payback and a chance to keep playing. I expect to see our boys to come out with 'both guns a blazing'.

    I dont think it is, they lost two straight and need some momentum going into the playoffs.

    Anyone thinking this will be like the colts game in 2007 where the Colts let us in the playoffs is in for a shock.

    Momentum is for the fans and for ESPN to have something to talk about. The Texans are beat up. Even if they try hard I dont think they can win. I think we will see a 1st half of regular football. After that we will see. I dont expect Yates, Foster, AJ, Cushing or any of their key players to be put at risk.

    It will be very vanilla. Run run run.... Lots of Tate and Ward. A shot or 2 down the field and mostly check downs from Yates.

    Yeah, pretty much all of this.

    If the Texans win this game, back to our other conversation, I would say they are the better team. If they lose, then it's up in the air until the two teams play in the playoffs.

    And that is how they have managed to end up where they are...and exactly the recipe that has been our biggest problem this year.

    How Bruce Matthews coached in Houston, and watching how well they run block, I cannot figure out if we just don't have the horses at C/G to block like that (my guess) or he had no hand on any of that scheme.

    LBs better tackle first chance or we will get run over up and down the field today.
