Opening Weekend is HERE!! Part Deux
In 1959, a group of groundbreaking gentlemen set out to create a rival football league. They were called “foolish”, perhaps evenbordering on “stupid”, but 50 years later, the AFL’s eight teams arethriving as members of the NFL. With the NFL opening this Thursday, it should never be lost on anyone how important the AFL was, is and always will be to the NFL. Time to get it on!
THENNOW 
Plenty of eyes will beon Norman, OK, where Landry Jonesmakes his first startfor OU. But, thefocus for the nation will be on Columbus where #3 USC takeson #8 Ohio State. The Matt Barkley experiementcontinues onSaturday, while OSUQB Terrelle Pryor isthe grizzled vet.“Coogahs 2Nite”travels to Stillwaterto take on Oklahoma State and NotreDame goes to Ann Arbor.

 When the Titans have the ball...
The Titans aren't a hard offense to figure out.
 
 They want to run the ball down your throat and then pass it just enough to keep you honest without having to lean on QB Collins to win any games.
 
Chris Johnson gave the Titans a "homerun" dimension last year with his speed, but getting loose for big runs againstthe Steelers is nearly impossible.
 
Collins certainly isn't mobile, but he gets rid of the ball fairly quickly so the chessmatch between Steelers DC Dick LeBeau and Titans OC MikeHeimerdinger will be an interesting one as some teams have hadsuccess against the Steelers by going 4 wide and spreading them out.
 
Does Heimerdinger have the guts to try that with Collins and hissubpar WR corps?
 When the Steelers have the ball...
I look for them to test thedefensive front of the Titans to see how sturdy they are without AlbertHaynesworth.
 
Last year, the Titans won 31
-
14
 
as they sacked BenRoethlisberger 5 times, had
 
4 takeaways and
 
limited the Steelers tojust 71 yards rushing.
 
 The Titans have good speed up front on theirdefensive line and that can be a problem for the Steelers at times, but without big Haynesworth in the middle, the Steelers might have somesuccess if they run it straight at the Titans.
 
I look for the Steelers
 
toutilize a controlled passing game while testing the Titans rush defense early; however,
 
even without Haynesworth,this won't be easy for the Steelers offense unless they win the battle in the trenches.
 
Conclusion:
What separates the Steelers from another defensive
-
minded team like the Ravens is that they find waysto get big plays from their offense and/or special teams when they are at home.
 
If the Steelers can hit a couple of big plays, they will win because I expect LeBeau to load up the box against the run all game long in order to force Collinsto beat them and I don't think Collins will handle the pressure of the Steelers defense in Heinz Field.

 When the Jets have the ball...
The Jets
 
averaged 125 ypg on the ground and that number is getting ready to go upthis
 
season under new head coach Rex Ryan who will undoubtedly look for his offense to pound the rock.
 
With
 
rookie QB Mark Sanchez pulling the trigger, that is probably a smart move.
 
 The Jets have a solid
 
RB in Thomas Jones but the guy who will
 
terrify the Texans during meetings this week will be Leon Washington who is a terrible matchup for any of the Texans LBs.
 
I
 
 wouldn't be shocked to see the Texans run more zone whenWashington is in the game.
 
I'm
 
just not sure the
 
 Jets are good enough to beat the Texans without Mark Sanchezmaking some plays and that is tough to do in your first NFL game.
 
 When the Texans have the ball...
Texans fans have pretty muchmarked the Jets game down as a win, but that
 
is a dangerous thing to do when you realize that the Jets new head coach, Rex Ryan, wasat the helm of the Ravens defense when they 
 
destroyed the Texanslast season.
 
While the Jets don't have Haloti Ngata, they do havesome good talent and their 3
-
4 front is going to cause some issues for Texans center Chris Meyers which might force the Texans intorunning outside much more.
 
 The Jets have a tough duo of insideLBs, but Steve Slaton and Owen Daniels have a chance to causematchup
 
problems in the passing game.
 
 The Texans passing  game
 
should excel but running it could be tough for the Texans.
Conclusion:
I think Texans defensive coordinator, Frank Bush, can take more chances on defense since it is unlikely that the Jets will ask Mark Sanchez to beat the Texans with big plays down the field.
 
If Bush can scheme a way toslow down the
 
running 
 
 game, the Texans
 
 will be in great shape because they should be able to get some points onthe board.
 
If the Jets can control the running game on both sides, they've got a real shot here.

Leon Washington
, Jets RB - Washingtonisn't going to get a ton of carries, buthe'll get enough touches to make adifference so start him as a "flex".
 
Owen Daniels
, Texans TE - Daniels onlyhad three TD catches last year despitea ton of catches.
 
Look for the Texansto look for him more in the redzone
