The Cardinals are a lot better than I thought they'd be this year, they're 4-4 with wins against the Lions, Bucs, Falcons and Panthers.

My prediction:

Us- 17
Them- 27

Case has another good game but defense and ST continue to suck, they'll (the Cardinals) will definitely be scoring a TD on ST. We will not be doing so. We will still have posters claiming that we are still in it at 2-7 and that we're going to be having a successful season by trying to impact playoff teams' seedings by playing the spoiler role. Hooray, kill me.

hmmm let's see

we go up 14-0 in the first half

in the second half they take the lead 14-16

bullock misses 2 kicks from 43 (tipped) and 47ish (wide right)

and then on the last drive we are not in (bullock's) field goal range but we go for the kick anyway because there will be just 4 seconds and 57 yards to go...

we win 17-16 (bullock kicks with his eyes closed)

I hope kubiak will not watch the last drive, I don't want him to have another stroke (or whatever it was, media are so confused)

They need to blindfold Bullock so he can't aim.

I think it'll come down to who has the better running game; our pass rush'll play havoc with AZ's offensive line but they have a great pass defense. The game might be decided by Dennis Johnson, of all people.

I'm not being conservative with my prediction like the Texans typically are in the second half of National League Football games.

I, and the Texans, are both letting it all hang out this week.

You will witness more (hate to use this word publicly) SWAGGER from a 2-6 team than any time in the history of any sport, anywhere.

This will be a good old fashioned American curb-stomping administered to the Arizona Cardinals to your great surprise by the Houston by-God Texans!

I'm sick of this bullshyte, and will stand for nothing less than a 27-17 victory!

Fair enough, though pulling out the c-word over a kicker is a bit much; I still think the majority of the fanbase is freaking out over something as weird as kicker accuracy. I followed the post-Superbowl Saints due to where I lived in 2010 and their playoff and NFCCG hero, Garrett Hartley, had a couple of misses that year (even against the hated rival - the Falcons), and went from a guy anyone would offer to pay his meal for to most-hated player on the team. Due to injuries, Garrett - fortunately or otherwise - had to sit out most of 2010 and 2011, but has otherwise returned to being an accurate kicker. Check out Mason Crosby with the Packers, too.

My point is, kicker accuracy is weird and if Bullock is going to get it out of his system, better that it happens this year than a year like 2011 or 2012.

You are probably spot on, BUT, I'm hoping otherwise.

The Texans are besting only the JAgs, Giants and Bucs in terms of scoring this season. Seems to me that the trend of playing conservative to limit turnovers isn't working, when after 3'n out, we turn it over anyway... play lights out. if you score half the time, WIN!

Ok, back to earth...

I've got Houston losing away. Kube's out this week is way off kilter in the clubhouse. We come out punch. Palmer to Fitz with give our 2ndary FITS. At least 3 big PI calls and a couple of TD's. All QB's will throw a pick now and then. I'm hoping this isn't the week the Schaub lovers will finally get to say "SEE! He sucks!"

Who knows this week. Who's drawing up the game plan? Dennison? Has he ever game planned against a team? Heck, he even admitted Kubiak would usually nix his ideas when they would game plan. Yeah, I'm not so sure of this one ( as if I was sure about any other ones).

Cardinals D isn't to shabby either. Dockett's one of my favorite players, so it'll be fun watching him vs our oline. Campbell's a good one too. Abraham on the outside. The trench warfare's going to be what to watch this week, imo

He returns next week, fires Marciano, cuts Ed Reed, cuts Bullock, signs kickalicious, does the Macarena on his way to the locker room at half time against the Raiders (no idea where that one came from :chickendance:), coaches from the booth the rest of the season and leads the Texans to a Super Bowl Victory.

He's made a big enough splash that teams will game plan him to death. The next 3 weeks will tell the Keenum story. If he's still prolific, we have a QB. If he gets shut down, we might want to consider a high draft pick QB since we'll have a high draft pick, regardless. Johnny Autograph anyone?

Many, many perspectives on this board can be placed into one of two broad categories, and these categories don't even have the same basis.

The first are those who look at the Texans as a football team and compare them to other NFL teams. They have a negative view of this team, which is easily defendable. With a 2-6 record, it is realistic to assume the Texans are a bad football team with many problems from ownership down through the players. Which areas - management, coaching, players - carry what proportion of the blame is open to lively debate.

The second are those who look at the Texans as a hometown team. They are optimistic that the future is bright for their team, and consider the small victories and goals important for the team in comparison to itself. For the most part they want to see the team succeed with the people that are in the organization; they are the ones who make up the "home town team" identity. They can have a lively debate on what will be fixed next, and how to fix it.

To take a topical example, posit that the Texans finish 6-10 and Keenum performs like a legitimate starting NFL quarterback. The first group will say the Texans failed in the NFL this season, coming in third in the division and toward the bottom of the conference. The second group will say the Texans have fixed their quarterback problem, and next year looks brighter.

These two groups are arguing from different premises, so many of these threads turn silly to nasty. I mean seriously, does anyone but Dale or TK, (sorry guys, joking), really think the 2-6 Texans are a successful, competitive NFL team this year? Does anyone, besides those who can't bear to be proven wrong by Keenum, really hope he fails and the team be even worse going into next year because they don't have a quarterback?

Put me down as thinking this team has lots of problems that need fixed and that people need replaced, but also hoping that finding a quarterback isn't one of the problems to be addressed next year.

You are way off. Fat Randy misses the ball on the tee when he goes to kickoff. All other 10 Texans are already running downfield and don't see what happened. Fat Randy mistakes the ball for a ham hock, picks it up and thinks the Cards are chasing him to take away his snack. He runs into the end zone, at which time Matt Schaub chases him down (Fat Randy = the only Texan Scahub is faster than) and knocks him out for pulling into his driveway that day with a bunch of drunken tourists. (it wasn't Randy's fault, he was supposed to turn a street earlier but missed.) Cards pile on Fat Randy resulting in a safety and their only score.

Us- 17
Them- 27

Case has another good game but defense and ST continue to suck, they'll (the Cardinals) will definitely be scoring a TD on ST. We will not be doing so. We will still have posters claiming that we are still in it at 2-7 and that we're going to be having a successful season by trying to impact playoff teams' seedings by playing the spoiler role. Hooray, kill me.

Dammit, Mendenhall kept me from nailing it.
