OSN Game of the Week: 2017 1st Edition
West Texas (0-0) @ Houston (0-0)
Could we have been justified picking either the San Fransisco \ Portland game or the St. Louis \ Colorado game do to the fact that they are early season division games between division favorites and rivals? Yes we could have been, but you just have to give the nod to game with the added benefit of having the returning CFA champs. That being said Houston is looking to cement itself as a dynasty on the rise. If you look at the offense you see nothing but talented youth up and down the roster. West Texas also adds some juice to this matchup as they are always hanging around the Southern Division lead year in and year out. This is the battle for the Lone Star State.
What to Watch for?
A shootout at the OK Corral
We're close to being done with the western analogies here, promise, but the imagery is apt here. Both the Wranglers and Pride bring in highly touted QB's. Lamar Crabtree is probably the hotter hand here. Last year he threw for almost 5000 and led the Pride to an upset of the previously undefeated Bayhawks. On the other offense, the Wranglers bring in Clark Ernest, although he only threw for about 3000 yds he was very careful with the football only throwing 6 INT's to 27 TD's. Where the two Qb's really differ is in their supporting cast. Every time Crabtree drops back to pass he has a virtual buffet of choices to choose from. Between Chambers, Wright, Huntingdon, Stone, and Wiggins somebody is bound to be open. However, the Wranglers only return one true threat in Huey. You know you're relying heavily on one guy when he catches 20 of your quarterback's 27 Td passes. How the game goes will rest squarely on these Qb's arms.
Going to have to go with the Pride here. That offense is just loaded with youth and talent everywhere. That being said the Wranglers are always a handful.
