Just one question - would you be surprised at a loss in Game XYZ?

@49ers: would anyone really be surprised by a loss?

Rams: should be a win. I'd be surprised if they lose.

@Chiefs: If this was played in Reliant, I think I'd feel a lot more comfortable saying win. Since it's in Arrowhead, and the Chiefs seem to have a handle on playing solid ball now, I wouldn't be surprised by a loss.

Colts: Colts went out to SF and punked the 49ers and have been playing well altogether. Wouldn't be surprised by a loss.

@Cards: I'd be surprised by a loss.

Raiders: I'd be surprised by a loss.

Jags: They better damn well not lose.

Patriots: Wouldn't be surprised by a loss.

@Jags: They better damn well not lose.

@Colts: Wouldn't be surprised by a loss, especially since it's in Indy, and the Texans never win there, even when Dan Outofboundski is QB.

Broncos: wouldn't be surprised by a loss.

@Tacks: wouldn't be surprised by a loss.

So I guess that means I won't be surprised if they finish up 7-9. Not predicting that, but it's a different way of looking at it, no?

We have to win Sunday Night's game at San Francisco. That's all we really should be focusing on right now. At 2-2 we need to play better football. It really doesn't matter who the opponent is or if the game is at home or on the road. The Texans have to figure out how to not beat themselves. Until then there is really not much else to say.

Just one question - would you be surprised at a loss in Game XYZ?


I honestly think it's too early to look too far into the season. I don't want to base what may happen in December based on what we've seen the last 4 weeks. If I had to, I wouldn't be surprised if we're 0-4 in December...


@49ers: would anyone really be surprised by a loss?


I would be surprised. These guys are talking about character & learning from adversity. a 3 game losing streak is not the kind of thing you put together if you are in fact "learning" from adversity.


Rams: should be a win. I'd be surprised if they lose.

@Chiefs: If this was played in Reliant, I think I'd feel a lot more comfortable saying win. Since it's in Arrowhead, and the Chiefs seem to have a handle on playing solid ball now, I wouldn't be surprised by a loss.


It's probably more want to than anything else, but I want the Texans to be 5-2 at the bye week. If we beat San Francisco I'd be surprised if we aren't.

I don't think we beat the Titans, especially if they're playing for something. After the game here, they know they should have won. They'll have this game circled on their calendar. I could see them beating the Broncos if they are resting all their starters by then. If not, this team is 8-8 and out of the playoffs.

LOL. MSR. I'm sure if think about I can come up with more internet letters.

That one sentence says it all. Some folks around here just don't get it. We're fans, posting on an internet message board about our opinions. Nothing more.

In any case, I agree with your listing on games I wouldn't be surprised about if they lose, but I still think the Texans win between 10-12 games this season. What I don't feel confident about any more is winning the AFCS for the 3rd year in a row. I would have bet a paycheck on that happening before yesterday, but not now.

If we look totally inept like the Jags, or Philly I'd call it koolaid. We're making mental mistakes... we may have a QB with something in his throat. But there was a lot of good football out there yesterday.

You want to say we can't beat the elite teams, maybe you can count San Francisco an elite team, but we've got some weak little sisters coming up in St. Louis, KC. Those are games we should win.


It's too early to call KC elite, to early to call us out.

I thought they were an 8-8 team before the season started but now I think we're staring another 6-10 in the face. I think that would probably be best for the team in the long run like the last time we finished 6-10. We will probably lose to SF, KC, Indy twice, NE, DEN and TEN.

Rams: 8 throws a pick 6, but bradford throws 2 W

@Chiefs: 9 crumplesacks and a pick 6 L

Colts: bounce back after embarassing chiefs loss W

@Cards: ****ty qb play? check. ****ty special teams? check. Patrick Peterson will be the nfc defensive and special teams player of the month L

Raiders: We'll win despite pick 6 W

Jags: whatever W

Patriots: This game will be an ass-kicking of epic proportions. L

@Jags: whatever W

@Colts: This will be an ugly game. Pick six and 8 crumplesacks. L

Broncos: Holliday will celebrate in Reliant and Von Miller will be flossing with 8 labia. L

@Tacks: They clinch wild card berth at home in this game. Embarrassing loss

That would be 7-9. This is what happens when you have a piss poor special teams and a QB who makes terrible decisions. And yet, Bob will say that Gary is my guy, and Gary will say Matt is our leader and we can win with him. Andre goes down as a receiver that never got a chance. We'll go into next year with Marciano at SP teams coordinator and 8 at qb. Welcome back to irrelevancy.

I have to agree with this.

But....how can anyone envision any more wins with a QB that folds like tissue paper at the "hint" of a tackle.

For some unexplainable reason, Schaub is shell-shocked, and in comparison; at least David Carr took the hits if he wasn't scrambling.

Guys guys guys, relax. We are going to make the playoffs. We will beat the colts at least once (I think we are the better team).

I'm just focused on the next three games. We must win two of three (@SF, vs STL, @KC) before the bye. If we go into the bye 4-3, I will be supremely confident in our playoff odds.

Better team, sure. However, eventually having a ****ty QB who gives away points on a weekly basis will effect them. Also, eventually it wears on the guys trying to constant bail your sorry ass offense out of the fire. So, you can relax, I am starting to see that we have a huge weakness at one of if not the most important position in the game.

Also, give me a Dilfer. Dilfer had no play-making skills, but he didn't do stupid **** like 8. 8 has next to no play-making skills and makes idiotic JV throws. Yikes.

I am ass pissed off as everyone else. I am furious at Schaub. Good news is Duane Brown will come back healthy. I would also like to see Harris move to Right Tackle.

Schaub is who he is, but he is not going to throw a pick six every single week. Its just not going to happen. We may not see one for the rest of the year.

Our Defense is dominant again. And we all know how valuable Cushing is. We lose him, its simply a different defense on the field. He will be back and healthy.

There is still a long season ahead. There is a chance we forget all about this loss 8 weeks from now.

Stinging loss. But this team has no quit. They will fight everyday till the very end. We are not out of the playoffs until we are officially out of the playoffs.

Schaub ain't the only QB that does that "Man, **** this...Y'ALL can get hit; I ain't 'bout that life" stuff when a sack is coming.

The Texans need to focus on the very next game and never try to overlook anybody (especially Jacksonville, who BTW almost beat the Texans in Reliant last year). I don't see a team left on the schedule that couldn't and hasn't beaten the Texans. It isn't likely I agree, but it is possible for the Texans to lose out from here. And the sad thing is that nobody extremely important has been lost for the season yet.

My heart says that the Texans will turn it around at some point and start winning games again. However, my mind remembers 2010 and knows that it (losing week after week) has happened before.

Its horrendous, I know. Im not making any excuses for the dude. I cant predict the future and sure there is a chance he throws a pick six every single game for the rest of his career. Its just not likely despite these last six games. Maybe his 40 games before this stretch would be a better sample size for pick sixes? Even the worst qbs in the league would have a hard time continuing this recent trend.

The worst thing about losing in 2010 was that no one knew what the answer was. We were hopeless & kept doing the same thing week after week & some how found another way to lose.

Several games got down to the last minute with the Texans in the lead & still we managed to lose it.

I honestly don't even care about the pick 6. We didn't score... didn't get close to scoring in the third qtr, the 4th qtr, or OT..... plenty of opportunity & the Texans did not rise to the occasion offensively.

Week 1- at Chargers W
Week 2- vs Titans W
Week 3 at Ravens L
Week 4 vs Seahawks L
Week 5 at Niners L
Week 6 vs Rams W
Week 7 at Chiefs L
Week 8- bye
Week 9 vs Colts W
Week 10 at Cardinals W
Week 11 vs Raiders W
Week 12 vs Jags W
Week 13 vs Pats L
Week 14 at Jags W
Week 15 at Colts L
Week 16 vs Broncos L
Week 17 at Titans W

It was nice to get a win last night but the Texans were exposed by a mediocre team. I'm seeing 9-7 and maybe even 8-8 because of the nfc west. They were supposed to beat the chargers. I have them going 2-2 against the NFC west but that division got a lot tougher this year and could be 1-3 or even 0-4. The Rams and Cardinals are much improved. The Chiefs are much better this year under Andy Reid. The Texans schedule is a lot tougher than it looked when it first came out. The same schedule last year would have been much easier. Peyton is better and has way more targets and Luck has a year under his belt. The only gimmes I see are the raiders and jags.

The Texans played some amazing football on Sunday and made the "possibly best team in the NFL" Seahawks look like punks for most of that game. Two self inflicted turn overs are the difference between people being hyped about a huge win and thinking the Texans are garbage.

Why are they self inflicted? Why are there only 2? Why can't the Seahawks inflict those turnovers? That first pass to OD, a Seahawk cut in front of him, tipped the ball up.. it landed in another Seahawk's hands.

The second pass to OD, Sherman knocked him out of the way & took that ball from him.

The Tate fumble, he didn't just decide to drop the ball, a Seahawk hit his arm.

I just watched Watt's reaction to the loss yesterday. I see us winning out the rest of the season. :swatter:


Seriously though, I think the 49's game will tell the tale of where this season is going to end up. If they can play a solid 4 quarters, win or lose, I'll be much more optimistic than I am right now.

Kubiak is doing everything he can to piss me the hell off but so what. Nothing any of us can do about it. I'm over my mad from yesterday. I'm not going to burn a jersey (unless it's my Mario Williams jersey; not dumb enough to buy a Schaub jersey). I'm gonna pull hard for my team week in and week out.

Maybe this is karma's way of making sure we don't peak too early? :fans:

Guys guys guys, relax. We are going to make the playoffs. We will beat the colts at least once (I think we are the better team).

I'm just focused on the next three games. We must win two of three (@SF, vs STL, @KC) before the bye. If we go into the bye 4-3, I will be supremely confident in our playoff odds.

Paper Tiger

As far as the playoffs go, it won't be by winning the division unless... this may sound familiar: the one team with quality QB goes down, allowing us an open door. So that leaves wild card potential... maybe? I've personally already conceded the Texans likely to miss out on post season play and just as well. They couldn't get past a true contender anyway with Matt. I've been flying my sig for over a year now, understanding that with Matt AND Gary in the fold, championship is not something to entertain as fan.

Week 1- at Chargers W
Week 2- vs Titans W
Week 3 at Ravens L
Week 4 vs Seahawks L
Week 5 at Niners L
Week 6 vs Rams W (I still think this could be a surprise L)
Week 7 at Chiefs L
Week 8- bye
Week 9 vs Colts L
Week 10 at Cardinals L
Week 11 vs Raiders L (Terrelle Pryor worries me)
Week 12 vs Jags W
Week 13 vs Pats L
Week 14 at Jags W (We HAVE to outscore Blackmon-flashback to week 11 2012)
Week 15 at Colts L
Week 16 vs Broncos L
Week 17 at Titans L

5-11 thank you Jags. We 6-10 if Raiders scare is just that, but even then I still think the Rams are good enough to make a contest of it.

I'll go one more and be a homer by wishing an extra W over the Cards and that puts it at
7-9

Good luck being a 7-9 wild card.

The Texans played some amazing football on Sunday and made the "possibly best team in the NFL" Seahawks look like punks for most of that game.

I never felt that way at all. They did the typical Texans Two Step by racking up a bunch of meaningless yards, but never really putting the game away. I never felt comfortable that they would win.

Why are they self inflicted? Why are there only 2? Why can't the Seahawks inflict those turnovers? That first pass to OD, a Seahawk cut in front of him, tipped the ball up.. it landed in another Seahawk's hands.

The second pass to OD, Sherman knocked him out of the way & took that ball from him.

The Tate fumble, he didn't just decide to drop the ball, a Seahawk hit his arm.

It's not like the Tate fumble was some vicious hit. Tate didn't secure the football and it got punched out. If it was locked up tight, he would not have fumbled. Seattle did nothing with the ball after they got it and only scored 3 because it was inside FG range.

The pick six is something that never should have left Schaub's hand. Lobbing a dying quail off of your back foot into traffic is a self inflicted injury and just a horrible decision.

You must be the most jaded and pessimistic fan in the NFL if you didn't think they were going to win up until the pick 6. The Texans completely dominated the Seahawks on both sides of the ball for most of the game. They managed one good drive on offense and were otherwise borderline inept against a suffocating Texans defense.

The only excuse for fumbling is when you get hit so hard that you physically can't hold onto the ball. Tate should not have fumbled from that hit. It's 100% his fault, just like throwing the ball up for grabs like a jackass was 100% Schaub's fault.

They're self inflicted injuries. Do your job correctly and they don't happen.

You seriously misjudge our defense. We're 9-7 at worst.

Seriously? Truth is the Defense is the best thing the team has going for it so I don't know that I'd go that far. I certainly wouldn't go 9-7. Our relatively healthy team is struggling to beat the pretenders and giving it up to the contenders. Just like last season.

Looking back at the last 10 games, you see a 4-6 record. If you go further, it will take you till thanksgiving where the texans were "gifted" a win to hit .500

During this 10 game history, on average, we've been out scored 27 to 20. I'm not you, but I wouldn't hang my hat on giving up 27 a game.

Now, with that in mind, let's look ahead at the 2013 campaign. Of the teams left to play we have 3 sets of teams I'll catergorize.
- teams that play stupid and have no business winning: Raiders and Jags. 3 wins. It'll be super shameful to lose any of these.
- teams that play smart and are not likely wins based on a combination of location, talent and coaching competency: Niners, Chiefs, Pats, Colts, and Broncos. 6 losses
- teams that are hard to guage at this time: Rams, Cards and Titans. Titans could very well be a tough win in Ten. Rams and Cards are no walk in the park for a paper tiger, but I'll give the Paper Tigers the benefit of doubt and hope for 2 wins, 1 loss.

That's 7-9. I could go all homer and say we'll sweep the Titans, beat the Niners or chiefs in their house, playing like we are. That could put us to 9-7 at BEST. Definitely not Worst. But I won't do that. I've been flying my sig for over a year with the realization of one certainty. With Gary and Matt, world championships will elude the Texans.

One more quick observation. If I wanted to entertain the notion of 9-7, we make it in as a wild card. How far does anyone think the Paper Tiger will make it? So in the end, who cares what the difference is between 7-9 and 9-7.

Texans fans have been saying a version of this for years - the game after a "bad" loss will define the team. At some point, the frequent bad losses identify the team.

I think this is a mediocre organization. 12-4 is the anomaly, bouncing around .500 (+/- 2 games) is more fitting for the team.

10-6, good enough for a playoff appearance.

I definitely wanted the win there, losing to Baltimore the week before, the Colts beating San Fran the week before & playing the Jags Sunday, really put pressure on us to win.... I think.

Now, In my mind SF is a must win. 2 games back in the division, behind one team much less two is not a good place to be. Luckily neither Indy(Seattle at home) or Tennessee(KC at home) aren't playing push overs.

With that said, I'd like for the Texans to get some quality wins. SF on Sunday night would qualify. But if the 9ers finish 9-7 or whatever (injuries & rehab & what not) we'll look back & say we dam sure should have won that game.

New England & Denver... there won't be any confidence from even the most die-hard that we'll win those games. But if we win those at home in December, I think we'll be at all time high (fan confidence) going into the post season.

I worry about Andrew Luck, but I do not fear the Colts.

We better take care of them.

& I think that's how they're getting what they're getting. Focus on Luck, lose the game. That's a good team.

Guys, we just need to get to the playoffs. If last year's Ravens did it we can do it...we whooped the Ravens in similar fashion last year on national TV.

I hate Schaub as much (probably more) than the next guy. I'm tired of Kubiak's lack of charisma. I'm fed up with Joe Marciano.

But this is our team, and we are still 2-3. We've got games against the Rams, Cardinals, Raiders, Jaguars x2, and Titans remaining.

And I think we will win vs Indy, and at least one of @KC, vs NE, or vs Denver.

I can easily see us getting 9 or 10 wins and getting to the dance, then who knows what happens.

I hate to break it to you guys, but us going 8-8 or 7-9 isn't getting Kubes fired, and isn't getting us a top pick / franchise QB. So lets just support our Texans.

Well to be fair, I was worried about the rams before the season started.

I never had the confidence in this years team like some people have. I didn't get all of the texans bravado heading into this year...

It's like we swept last year under the rug and just assumed that we'd be better. I have 0 faith in this team to do anything under Matt Schaub. Last year spoke volumes. Not just the losses. Matt was not all that last year. The best game he played was against Denver. In the mild high air. He's never gotten close to that level since.

From the Shutdown Corner (http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/shutdown-corner-playoff-projection-saints-lock-top-nfc-135440726--nfl.html):



Are the Texans and Falcons really finished? They were so good last year.

Matt Schaub is still Houstonís quarterback. Falcons receiver Julio Jones is done for the year. Game over.

To add insult to injury they have the Colts as the #2 seed ahead of the Patriots, Ravens, Chiefs, & Bengals.

Is this Colts team for real? After seeing what Tony Romo did to the Broncos, can Andrew Luck beat them in the playoffs?

When a team wins at San Francisco and defeats the Seattle Seahawks, that is as real as it gets. Peyton Manning is putting up incredible numbers this season, but never forget a very important statistic - his playoff record is 9-11. Manning has a Super Bowl ring, but the playoffs have been his weakness. That means Indianapolis has a real shot in the postseason.

If the colts win the Super Bowl this year and we miss the play offs, if Gary and Schaub are back I might seriously consider not rooting for the texans.

Scratch that. If the colts make the AFC championship game I'll consider it. If they even get close to the Super Bowl while we didn't make the play offs, I'm done. Seriously wouldn't be able to root for this team as that would show they are simply too dumb to ever create a winner.

missing the playoffs hopefully will mean that schaub is no longer starting qb and we start the process of finding out what we have in keenum or yates then plan accordingly.

the worst thing to happen would be if schaub played well enough to win games and saves his job again for another year.

we have no real future if that happens because there is no future where schaub is going to lead this team to the superbowl.

I don't buy this mindset it in the least.

the good thing for the Texans is we still have not played the colts yet has long has we beat the colts twice there is a good chance we will win the divison


it really does not matter if the colts beat San fran and Hawks those are NFC teams if they lose to use twice that beats all tie breakers

If the colts win the Super Bowl this year and we miss the play offs, if Gary and Schaub are back I might seriously consider not rooting for the texans.

Scratch that. If the colts make the AFC championship game I'll consider it. If they even get close to the Super Bowl while we didn't make the play offs, I'm done. Seriously wouldn't be able to root for this team as that would show they are simply too dumb to ever create a winner.

I can handle slow reacting. Stubborn. Loyal.

But I can't continue to root for the same thing expecting different results.

Excellent post. I keep reading people hoping to make the playoffs as a WC. Why? To get embarrassed and shut down in the playoffs then start the SAME CYCLE again next year??

It wasn't that long ago we criticized the Texans for screwing the first 12 games & finishing strong, when it didn't matter to other teams.

Now, we criticize them for limping through December.

Based on the way the team is currently playing...

Week 6 vs Rams Win
I think Kubiak runs it a lot against the Rams. While Fisher is the coach, the Rams D has not been spectacular. Texans get the win at home.


Week 7 at Chiefs Lose
Kubiak tries the same approach of running a lot, but finds it nearly impossible against the Stout Chiefs Defense. In the end, a special teams blunder dooms the Texans.


Week 8- bye
The Texans move into the bye week at 3-4

Week 9 vs Colts Lose
This may be where the QB change happens. That said, the OL MUST do a better job. Mathis has been on fire. Hilton and Fleener have been having great years and Luck has led his team back several times. If this is Yates' first start, it may be just too much to handle.

Week 10 at Cardinals Win
The Cardinals are struggling. Their D needs work and the Offense hasn't been a legit threat. I think the Texans can do enough to get the W.

Week 11 vs Raiders Lose
Every year the Texans manage to drop a game against a team you wouldn't expect them to lose to. Also for whatever reason, the games against the Raiders end up being tough. I think it comes down to fgs and Janikowski boots a 48+yarder to seal the game for the boys in black and gray.

Week 12 vs Jags Win
The Jags are a mess. They lost their LT in Joeckl and dont have a lot of options. Plus they have Gabbert who is essentially the only starting QB worse than Schaub right now.

Week 13 vs Pats Lose
Yes, the Pats have struggled, but at their current level, they could still slice up the Texans D. Brady can dink and dunk with the best of them.

Week 14 at Jags Win
See Week 12. Unless Gabbert is replaced, I will pick the Texans.

Week 15 at Colts Lose
The Texans have NEVER won in Indy. Nothing has changed yet to alter my mindset on that one.

Week 16 vs Broncos Lose
The Broncos offense is ridiculous and will likely put up 30+. Can the Texans offense respond? Sadly I don't think so. Not this year.

Week 17 at Titans Lose
The Texans needed a miracle to beat the Titans at home. The Titans will be fighting hard for a playoff spot and the Texans will be wrapping it up. He who is hungry beats he who wants to start his vacation.

Overall Final Record: 6-10

The only game we ever competed well in was against the Seahawks.

We were getting blown out in our first two game, and our Superbowl-aspired team rallied to come back in those two games. Now our entire team knows we're **** due suck-o QB leeching the energy out of them. Today we saw our entire team play down to the level that their QB has been at for the last couple of weeks.

If we got handled against the Rams at HOME, then I can't really see any other team we can beat beside the Jags.

The good news for Kubiak is that a 6-10 record would give him a 65-63 regular season record. A winning record.

In the unlikely event the Texans go 5-11 he ends up at 64-64. A non-losing record.

The Texans are 6 games into the season. They have played terrible. Hopefully they have played their 6 worst games of the year. They are only 2 games back in the division so who cares if they are 2-4 or 4-2. A win next week vs the Chiefs with a Colts loss vs the Broncos and they are only 1 game back. If they can take care of the 5 division games and win 3 of the remaining 5 (Chiefs, Cards, Raiders, Pats & Broncos) there's still a chance of winning the division. Colts still have 2 games each against the Texans and Titans. Colts non-division games left are Broncos, Rams, Cards, Bengals & Chiefs. I can see a few losses there. The Texans are not out of it yet.

well, as much as I would like this to be true, I won't put much hope on it.

seeing case on the field will be enough for me, not because I hate the other options but because I want to see how he really is in regular season.

Then we can start arguing which is the better, untill then there's no point in argue. We have seen a lot of Schaub, something of TJ and nothing of case.

I don't think TJ will be more than a #2, ofc I could be wrong.

I need to know who the qb is. I think with Schaub, we won't make the play offs. Yates or keenum, I don't know but at this point I feel a bit more optimistic with keenum. The unknown factor and I just feel like he's the best distributor on the team.

Was thinking about it, and it's very possible to get back in the mix of things..

Colts play the Denver Jugganuts next week.. which will most likely put them at 4-3

We both play each other after the bye at HOME..

If we could pull that off, than we'll have a tied record at 4-4 (we'll be #1 in division due to tiebreaker tho).

That will put us back on the right direction, with ARZ, OAK, and JAC following after.

It all start this Sunday (biggest game in franchise hist??). AFCS winner could get in the playoff NFCE style.

our 2nd game against Indy could very well be the deciding factor for the AFCS title.

That scenario seems nice, but there is no way I can pick this team to win a single game until I see them play better. The way they are playing right now makes me believe they couldnt beat the Jags. The entire team seems to have lost their confidence in someone or possibly the entire team as evidence by the "sprung leaks everywhere" comments by Gary.

But I guess looking at the schedule in quarters we can try and get back to 4 and 4, then reevaluate the situation. @KC and vsIND, lets see where it takes us.

Right now, W-Ls don't matter. Hasn't mattered since week 1. These guys are playing like crap, so even if we somehow beat KC & Indy.... mathematically we may be in it, but there won't be any confidence in this team going forward.

They need to play up to what we believe they're capable of playing. Otherwise, we've got to come to the realization that they aren't as good as we think they are & start looking forward to the offseason.

Some of us are already there & for all we know..... from what we've been seeing on the field, they may very well be right.

I'm trying to stay positive, I'm drinking the koolaid, but I'm not oblivious to reality. We need the win, but more importantly we need to play well.

While this is true and we still have a chance folks seem to bypass the rest of the schedule. Sure the Colts lost to the Chargers and now have the Broncos who should be pissed after Jim Irsay idiotic comments. At the same time check the rest of their schedule. There isn't one team they don't match up well against. Their two toughest opponents will be the Chiefs and Bengals who they should be able to hang with in a competitive game. Look what the Colts have after the Broncos:

@Houston, St. Louis, @Titans, @Cards, Titans, @Kitty Cats, Houston, @Chiefs, Jags.


Meanwhile our toughest two? The Broncos and Patriots. After this week we have a tougher road to travel than they do. So yeah we can be right back in it in a few weeks. Question is down the road because ours gets more rough while theirs will be a bunch of competitive games but none where you are certain they will lose. Any ready to the mortgage on us beating the Pats (who should have Gronk back by then) and the Broncos?

This team will have to do a complete 180 from how they are playing to accomplish this. Possible? Yes. Likely? Not really. So I'll just hope for the best but not raising my expectations. I did that this season and so far have been burned horribly for it. Not giving in as I'll cheer every Sunday but I'm not looking at any game and saying 'That's a win!' Especially not after the Rams came into our building and beat the living ******* out of us.

I'm not there yet if they change QBs. Even if they switch to Yates, I think he can be stable enough for the rest of the team to rally behind. But yeah, if the QB position is FUBAR, this team is done. KC isn't a team to run out and put up 30 on someone, so we'll see how this game goes. If the Texans hold themselves to 7 or fewer points in the first half again and find a way to gift the Chiefs some points, then I won't have any hope for the Colts game.
