BREAKING NEWS: Texans 2009 Schedule Released!

Courtesy of the league website, here's the official regular season schedule for your 2009 Houston Texans. We already knew who the opponents were; now, we know the order in which they'll be playing. Initial thoughts:

1. Starting the season at home is always nice. Starting it against a team with a very unsettled QB situation is even nicer.

2. First divisional game in Week Two, and it's at Tennessee. Personally, I'm glad we'll see their Haynesworthless defense sooner rather than later, as the chance of growing pains should be greater earlier in the season.

3. 3 out of the first 4 at home seems about right after the murderous opening schedule your Houston Texans faced last year.

4. That bye in Week Ten is exceedingly sweet. A week earlier would have been ideal, but the fact is that anything later than Week Two is a sight for sore eyes.

5. The only game(s) where weather will likely be an obstacle is at Seattle in December. I don't see any games where elements are likely to play a role. That does not suck.

6. Never more than two (2) weeks at a time away from Reliant. Doesn't get much better than that.

7. That back-to-back-to-back divisional streak from Weeks 11 to 13 is where the season shall be made or broken.

8. ANOTHER MONDAY NIGHT HOME GAME! Hosting Bud Adams! And with a bye week before it, thus giving the good guys two weeks of rest? I think I just peed my pants a little.

General impression: I'm not sure that the schedule-makers could have done much better by the Texans. Opening at home. Monday Night Football at home. And potentially a game with HUGE implications to close the year...at home. C'mon, September. Get here already.
