First up for those of you tuning in. Yes we had some scheduling difficulties to start off with. But we got it together. The truth is I couldn’t get my wife to commit to watching the same game at the same time with me. She was saying that I had to pick a game and let her know. O.k. I can take that. So I picked a game. At first I picked the LSU game but some how ( wink..wink) that didn’t work out. I then picked the early morning NFL Game but again that didn’t work out. The afternoon Texans vs the Broncos game workouted right on time, besides since they have three former LSU Tigers on the team I got to watch.

Well since I am a gentleman, my wife first.


This is my wifes view of this Sundays Texans versus the Broncos NFL Football game.

Ok, so Joe came up with this idea of watching the game together and then reporting back what we saw.  What he has failed to realize is he needs some rules and a format to this blog.  Why, because I am a woman, who needs some order and some type of system.  With no rules or format, this yields me to just do my thing throughout the game.

So, I am just returning after a five-minute break of getting the kids popsicles to keep them quiet so I can sit here and listen to Joe scrape the bowl of strawberry ice cream.  And I am supposed to be watching the game…right!

Oh, just caught a nice shot of John Elway.  Yes, I do realize he is retired but he must be visiting.

So, my first thoughts are it looks really nice outside and I love the Broncos uniforms.  Leaving the blog for a few…I have to check my Facebook and look up shoes for the kids…lol.  Yes, I am a working mother and wife, and it is hard to just sit and watch a football game.  Ok, Joe just said he missed it…what did he miss.  There is 59 seconds in the first quarter left and I haven’t caught much.  I will do better for the 2 quarter.

Sienna is crying so I really am leaving for a few.  While I have left the game, Joe is shouting out “Sienna did you bust your lip”.  While I am rolling my eyes and wondering what exactly is he writing over there with his little notepad…lol

End of the first quarter and we are getting a nice shot of the bench and the players while getting some commentary that in my world sounds like Charlie Brown.

Start of the Second Quarter

Kansas City has just beat New Orleans, this is via the update while the 2nd quarter is about to start.  1st down by Tate, he is with the Texans.

Keyshaun Martin could be a great receiver…not sure why but that is what I heard in between.  Texans just scored a touchdown!!!  Yay!!

Champ Bailey in the back of the end zone..I didn’t know he still played.  Ok, so Sienna just walked in with a napkin on her lip, and Stone is trailing behind…they want some attention.

I thought we had a touchdown, but it seems Foster just made a touchdown..not sure what I was watching….houston,13 and Denver 5.

Joe is hating on me because I am actually using my laptop to capture what is going on and he is using a steno pad. The guys on the sidelines sure look bored…put a smile on your face you are still getting paid more than most people to just stand there and look.

Joe just let out this loud howl and I am wondering what is his problem..commercial break. Thank goodness!!!

Another break, and I didn’t get the stuff in between.  Joe just said “we are about to get that love…”  Not sure what that means, but I can almost certainly say he wasn’t talking to or about me.  Stone is running in here for the fifth time.

Texans just scored again, and no I didn’t see it.  I was in the living room getting my kids settled and getting a snack.

Now, Joe is replaying the touchdown I missed…he really doesn’t have to do that.  Joe is so busy trying to juggle his notepad, a bag of trail mix and worrying about the game…we now have trail mix all over the floor.  He can’t multi task…Joe is now eating off of the floor while watching the commercials…is this what happens while I am not watching the game.

Ok, while we are on commercial break, he is rewinding the game to catch some stuff…I can tell you right now if you want game details…read his section, for life details read mine.

Ok, so I didn’t finish the game.  To be honest I am not even sure who won…check Joe’s blog for the winner of the game.

Be honest, is this worth it or should we just book a date night, at least once a month to spend some quality time.  Tell us the truth.

Houston Texans 31 Denver Broncos 25

If you were like me and you watched the Texans play  the Broncos in the NFL this weekend then you most likely had a “What the What?” moment during the first few drives of the first quarter. That would only be if you were pulling for the Texans to win.

I was amazed when I turned on the game to see that at the eight minute mark the score was Denver 5 and Texans 0. I understood that the Texans had to have given up a safety. But after that it was all downhill for the Broncos.

Schaub was on fire. He threw for four touch downs. Man all I could think about is my Fantasy Football team. This week my opponent was starting Schaub and Brady. All I had to offer was Stafford and Cutler. Cutler didn’t come through but Stafford did. I am waiting after the Monday night game. I got WR J. Nelson maybe he can break out 40 points for me. 🙂

Throughout the first half of the game the Texans O-Line controlled the line of scrimmage. Although Foster didn’t really break a long run till the second half he and the offensive line were able to keep the drives on schedule for down and distance.

Plus they did give Schaub enough time to find the open receiver for big time pass plays.

I kept waiting to see LSU Alum Trindon Holiday get a chance to burst a return into the open field. Didn’t happen…maybe next week. While I am talking about Special teams I got to give some love to the Linebacker with the last name Mercilus. He brought the love on kickoff coverage. He made a great open tackle inside the 20yd line. I can’t resist, his hit was MERCILESS!! LOL

Also from a football perspective I want to clear something up. The Broncos #20 Safety Mike Adams kept getting blamed for giving up touchdowns but from the coverage’s they were running the blown assignment was on #26 Rahim Moore. On two coverages he had the inside leverage and he bit down twice on the inside route. C’mon man!!

The second half saw the O-line fall off. They gave up two big hits on the QB.

Now we got to remember that the Broncos are just that good on Defense. They did send a lot of six and five man blitzes and as a result they only gave up 10 points the second half.

Manning he has lost a little bit of snap on the ball and on some down the field passes or at least it looks that way. We still have to take into account that he still hasn’t got the timing down to a science just yet with his receivers. By the way, yes, he does throw the ball to the point were the receiver is SUPPOSED to end up at on his route. He still moves around really well in the pocket and gets rid of the ball on time. The thing we have to remember is that he does not have that many great receivers around him like in Indy. The best he got is Decker and not forget about Tamme who came from Indy. Tamme doesn’t have the ability Clark had in Indy so at best he is still a number three option.

They got a little life when Tate fumbled the ball. You can’t do that with a good team because they will make you pay. The game really was won for the Texans in the 2nd quarter. But that’s why it is a four quarter game. It anit over till the fat lady sings.
