Damn..that sucks that they consider us beating the Texans an upset

I am actually very surprised the line is just 3 points after the ass kicking we got 2 weeks ago at home. Yes.. this would be an upset.

Nah an upset to me would be us beating the Colts or Eagles...not the Texans but everyone is expecting us to get our ass kicked..so I guess yea that is an upset.

Well, if everyone expects the Niners to lose and they end up winning, that is what one calls an upset.

I think most aren't expecting the Niners to win because of the blowout by Atlanta; the Niners' porous offense and lack of ability to comeback from being down; the fact that Houston has a high powered offense that just whooped on the Bengals; the fact that Houston's D in the last three games hasn't given up more than 50 yards rushing to opposing teams; the fact that the Niners are a run first team with a subpar offensive line and a QB that throws ducks; the game is in Houston.

I'm not saying the Niners will lose, but it will be a great win if they pull it out.

i expect us to compete in and be physical in every game. we have shown under this coach wit the exception of last game, that we will put our best effort on the field for 60 minutes. houston should not write us off especially since they just learned to play a lil d last night. we have been playin good d for quite a while and our special teams are among the league's most consistent. yes we have inconsistency on offense but we don't turnover the rock and our d forces our opponents to do so. we get on track on offense and get gore, davis, and our wr's off, we will walk away wit a win. we have been on the road dating back to last year and played well in bad weather for an early game and won before

f**k those a*****es . . .
Houston is pretty much in the same boat as us..... one bad game... one good game!!! Experts are going off of the win they just pulled off on Cincy in their house!!! If we had beat Atlanta, we'd be favorite. I don't put to much stock in the so called experts at ESPN. It will be close and as I fan I EXPECT a win!!!
i know the odds are against, but this could definitly be an upset. we are coming off a bye, and a bad loss, we have gore, and now crabs. our d was great before that. texan d is AWFUL which means we can move the ball. if our d plays like it has the first couple weeks (everything except falcons game), then we should have enough offense to beat them.

it kills me when you guys lay out:

"better WR, better qb, williams, ect.."

umm.. vikings game. better.. everything? arguably. the vikings are at least better than the texans in ALL areas except johnson. williams you say? umm.. sorry, but hes no jared allen. and ladies and gentleman, we should have beat the vikes. we got out favred.

the texans arent really all that different than the cards.. i would only really say the difference is that RIGHT NOW, shuab is on a roll. thats about it.

i can definitly see an upset here. if you can even call it an upset.

They are closer to the east coast than we are so yes EAST COAST BIASSSS!!!!!

this is the biggest game of the year imo. This is a must win with cardinals now tied with us and we got to go to indy right after... the season could turn really ugly if we don't win this one.

I also picked the Texans in my pick'em. I hope Im wrong though.

That sir, may be your undoing. I probably will pick the Niners.

My thought is the defense is probably going to be a little PO'd with all the attention paid to Crabs -- plus the way they played against Hotlanta.

We wouldn't have our three wins without this D. They have something to prove. They are getting overlooked again.

Perfect (evil rubbing of hands together)
The Niners will upset the Texan & yall can take that to the bank
