Thanks. Glad to be here. Looking forward to hearing from other skin fans. Being from Iowa, they are not exactly local so the conversation is sparse.

Welcome. Hope you've invested in Direct TV.

What's your story on becoming a Skins fan?

Sadly, I have dish network. They do have the Redzone though, and I have a couple spots where I can catch it online. At least we have comcast maryland or whatever it is called so I can catch pregame and postgame.

Make sure you are checking out the ONLINE streaming sites for the Skins game. Usually posted shortly before game time...AND

Good question. Well, my dad is a vikings fan and did his best to try and have me go that route. Not sure why it never took, but I am glad I don't have to through that pain every year. I remember first seeing them as a little kid with Mark Rypien and thinking, "these guys have cool uniforms and colors" (another subject that has been discussed around here) so I started to follow them and I guess that is how it all started. I have only seen them twice in person, both times against the Vikes (first time in 98'....wasn't good, and in 2007 a little bit better) and they are hardly ever on tv around here unless they are SNF or MNF....or playing the Cowboys. But for some reason I stuck with em and here we are today.

I thought with Dish Network you could pay for local channels from anywhere in the country?

I could easily see Houston beating us...
I could also easily see Houston choking big time, still celebrating their Indy win...

Not sure about that. I know I get the one comcast channel from there, I don't know what local station it would be on. I am able to get fox sports network and comcast from other markets, but it usually blacks out professional sporting events. I can get baseball games that are close to my market, but since all NFL games are on FOX and CBS affiliates I only get my local games. Aside from what they show on the Redzone. Perhaps that is something to check into.

This is a good test for both teams. Skins to see if the offense can get on track and Houston to see if they can have the same success on the ground against a tougher defense.

Also, anyone know if the Skins have any plans of using more two TE sets? All this hoopla about the receiving corps has me wondering why we didn't see more of Cooley and Davis on the field at the same time.

Re: It's F'ing Houston week!

We have a massive advantage in this game.

The two teams are very familiar with the offense that the other side runs because in many ways it's the same scheme from the same tree.

On defense we are still largely an unknown.

The Texans defense on the other hand is very well known by the man that runs our offense. It just can't hide from Kyle Shanahan as he knows it too well.

I expect a strong performance from the offense this week.
