A while back when we were 0-4 I posted stating that we could very well go on a 12 game winning streak. So I thought I would review our remaining games.

Da Vikings. A very winnable game. If anything we are catching the Vikes at a good time. The key to this game is stopping Peterson and making Gus beat us. The Vikes have an average D and if they lose both DT's for this next game its really gonna hurt. This is a team in the same state mentally as the Texans where at the beginning of the year. This may not be an easy W for us but we pull off the upset.

Ravens. Its a home game. Nuff said. But Flaco does scare the pee pee out of me. And if Ray Ray decides he wants to play this could be a long game. Also this is a 34 and Brown has struggled against that scheme. This is going to be a close game but still a W is a W.

Indy. Road game sure. The Colts, sure. But Lucas Oil field is not the RCA Dome and the Colts have not been themselves. We go into Indy and put up a W. I also think we go in there with a chip on our shoulders and win convincingly. We are going to let the old regime know there is a new sheriff in town.

The Browns. Its crappy in Cleveland. No one likes to go there. Its depressing, gloomy, gray, and has an odor. But we will be playing Cleveland for a possible playoff spot and will need this win. So hopefully we avoid the mistake by the lake part tres.

The Jags. We are home, Monday night game, Battle Red, its the Jags and pay backs a *****. This team sucks and got lucky when they did beat us. This is gonna be another nationally televised beat down.

The Pack. Now this is where I think we could falter, but I will stand by my prediction that we win. The negs going into that game is a short week, we play at Lambo, and we play at Lambo in the freezing freakin cold. The Pack is a lot like the Texans only with a better D. I still think we can pull it out though.

The Titans. Again, we are home, and again pay backs a *****. We had ourselves positioned to win that game the first time but made a few bone headed decisions with our play calling which appears to have corrected itself. It seems our team has figured out a way to win. We win this game.

The Raiders. They suck. W.

The Bears. I personally think this game is gonna stink. At this point we have clinched a playoff birth and a first round bye and will probably rest most of our starters. The Bears in turn have also clinched and will most likely be resting there starters. Its going to be the battle of the back ups. Our back ups are still better than theres so we close out the regular season on a happy note.

I say we win next week in Minnesota and beat the Ravens at home to give us a 5 game win streak going to Indy. If we can play against them like we did today or in the first 55 minutes of the last game we played against them, we could easily beat the Colts. They have looked weak.

If we show up and beat the Vikings like I think we can I will have a hard time fighting off some serious optimism. But until then I refuse to start marking off any games as W's. We have been a much different team on the road this year and this was the easiest three game stretch we will see. Having said that today's game was seriously fun to watch and I hope we can keep it up.

That's true. If they contain Adrian next week and win us a road game, I will be leaving the Pink Soap club. Consistency is the next step for this team before we can even talk about playoffs.

You smoke crack. a lot of crack. Homer crack. Got any you want to share? I think we could go to the playoffs but a 1st round bye with the tacks at 6-0?? That's unimaginable. The tacks have finally figured out that VY is a bust at QB and are ROLLIN' with a bad ass running game. WC teams don't get bye weeks. We play Buffalo in the 1st round of the playoffs and get revenge for '92.>>>passes the pipe<<<

Lets just take it a week at a time to avoid major disappointment....

I think we can beat the Vikings...they have little to no offense...usually we are worried about our secondary playing defense moreso than our LBs and Dline...the Vikings don't scare anyone when passing and we got Dunta back who is coming back to form pretty quickly. I think we can win this next game.

The Texans would be getting sooo much love nationally if we were to win 8-12 games straight. I know that seemed unthinkable a few years ago but it seems like other teams' fans are becoming aware that the Texans are good. BSPN would be forced to talk about us. Excellent. (M. Burns voice)

You know damn well thats the key to winning next week ..... That and keeping Schaub upright against a very tough front seven.

I wont go so far as to leave the pink soap club if they can keep AP in check , the rest of that offense is down right offensive.

Division games are the most important, but you can't just shrug off the other games. We need to win every game.

I don't understand why everyone is rooting for the Titans to lose in a technical sense. We all hate the Tacks, but to be honest if you are talking about playoffs, our best shot is at a wildcard. Unless the Titans implode they will take the division, therefore we should root for the Colts to lose to improve our chances.

Assuming the Colts did lose, we would be in a 3-way tie for 2nd place....although, we blew what should've been wins against BOTH of those teams. :foottap:

I don't think this is about how WE feel. We might not mind the Jags too much, but their fans hate us because they are the team we have beaten most. That's kind of a reflection of how I feel about the Colts. I HATE the Colts, even though I have no real reason for it other than our obviously upsetting record against them.

Yea man, I agree with you there. To be honest I see the Tacks/Shoes game as a win/win situation for the Texans.

A) The Tacks lose... HECK YEA!
B) The Colts lose and our wildcard chances improve.

Vikings. W

Ravens. W

Indy. W

The Browns. W

The Jags. W

The Pack. ?

The Titans. ?

The Raiders. Lol W

The Bears. W

I am not sure if this team can go 12-4, more like 11-5 or 10-6, but if they play like they have these past two games against "real" teams like the Vikings, then I will be convinced this team can go 12-4.:fans:

I see the potential for the Texans to win every game from here on out, but the Packers and Titans have got me worried. Packers win big, but when they lose, they lose big as well. This game will be tough, most likely decided by a FG or a TD.

The Titans, I have been hoping ever since they went 4-0 that they would eventually lose, now they are 6-0, maybe Monday will be the day? I have always thought of the Titans being lucky, but its hard to call it luck anymore after they have won six in a row. This game, will be the toughest game the Texans will have this season by far, if they somehow pull a win from this, they will definitely go all the way to the Super Bowl and win it.

The Texans at this point look like they can compete with any team in the league after our horrendous start. Competing with good teams and beating them are two different things though.

Just curious, with 8 weeks (minus one game) down, what teams fall into your definition of good? I think that's a pretty small number of teams, and we only play one or two of them in the last nine games of the season, but you may be viewing it differently.

I'm on this band wagon. Bury the Cincinnati game. Worry about stopping all day Peterson. I sure wish Okam wasn't in the dog house.

More realistically:

@ Vikings = loss (close)

Ravens = win (barely)

@ Colts = loss (another bad one)

@ Browns = loss

Jaguars = win

@ Packers = loss (this one's bad)

Titans = loss (not much better)

@ Raiders = win

Bears = win (barely)

We'll need that last big win against the Bears just to get 7 wins.

I'm sorry, but my thinking is that our D still sux against a good offense and Schaub WILL make mistakes when the pressure (both kinds) is on. We are an 8-8 team that has already blown at least one big opportunity this year.

There's a LOT of things that could make us better than my projections: Eugene Wilson, Dunta Robinson's health, Fred Bennett, Reeves learning to look for the ball, Okoye getting a grip, Okam, just to name a few. My guess is some of those that could seriously help this D won't get to play much and the others just won't do it.

Then we can replace Richard Smith and have a Defense next year. :)

PS-I realize we just held the Bengals to 6 points, but they are an 0-8 team. We have a play-off calibur offense with a Defense that hasn't proven squat. Remember when our D used to win games 20-0? Well, this is the opposite.

Malloy
10-27-2008, 06:23 AM
All games from now one are winnable, whether we succeed or not is a question of what D shows up. Our first half intimidated D, or our poised, aggressive and D-rob-inspired second half D?

If our second half D shows up, the sky is the limit, but at the moment I'm just enjoying a big win and an almost flawless offense! :)

Sure the Taks are 6-0 right now, but, they still gotta play the Colts twice and then the second half of there division schedule and the Steelers.

There is a good chance they become 11-5 while the Texans go 12-4.

"Decent"?? Those Williams boys they have at defensive tackle are slightly smaller, faster versions of Haynesworth. Did I mention that one of them (Kevin) has only one less sack than Mario? On any given play they'll be lined up over Myers who isn't exactly our strongest O-lineman. Oh, and they traded for some dude named Jared Allen who has 5.5 sacks himself.

Yeah, they might be pretty "decent".

Our O-line better bring workgloves and a lunchpail because its gonna be a long day.

It was just a few weeks ago after the Indianapolis game that many people on this board wanted to fire the coach, bench Matt Schaub and take a number of other half-cocked draconian actions. That was based on an 0-3 start and a really disappointing loss to the Colts. Now the Texans have beaten three of the worst teams in the NFL in consecutive weeks and some of you are talking about running the table, or close to it. Please.

I would love to see the Texans reach 10-6 and earn a playoff spot. I really hope that happens and I do believe they are good enough to contend for a playoff spot this year. However, I will also be quite pleased if the Texans can climb to 9-7 and establish themselves as a bonafide winning team.

To go 10-6, the Texans must finish the year 7-2, which would be truly amazing.
To go 9-7, the Texans must finish the year 6-3, which will be tough and is not a gimme by any means.

I hope we do not set ourselves up for a huge disappointment by establishing unreasonable expectations for the Texans. The Texans are a team on the rise. These are fun times. Let's enjoy them.

I agree with you, Obsi. IMO, our center and RG are our weakest links along the line. The Williams' might have a field day with Meyers and Brisiel.

Jared Allen is good, but honestly, I fear the Williams' more than Allen.

If we go 9-7 and miss the playoffs it will really hurt. We could have easily had 2 more wins with the Jags and Colts game and possibly another with the Titans if we wouldn't have dropped 2 (or 3) TD passes. We should be at least 5-2 in a race for our division with the Colts and Jags a few games back.

And for those that say we havent played good teams, well Jags and especially the Colts needed us to give them there W's. And even though we beat 3 lowly teams, I'm sure the Texans' confidence is sky high right now.

The Texans are a good team. Our remaining schedule favors us. Look at our opponents. All of them winnable.

The Pitt game we looked awful. Our guys came in expecting to lose and it showed. The Titan game was a result of bad coaching. Going for it consecutive drives when you should of kicked the field goal cost us that game. The Jags game was disappointing. Should of been a win. Our D was still learning how to stop people. The Indy game was a disaster, yet another victory stolen. Out of our 4 losses three came up short by a few plays.

We beat the teams we are supposed to beat and now we are going to go on the road and beat a team that matches up with us closely.

There is no reason we cant run the table.

The next three are tough no matter how you slice it. Vikings is a winable road game just because of how their offense has struggled at times except for Peterson. He may be the only back I have ever seen punish 8 and 9 man fronts. Thats just crazy. We can't go up there making mistakes and shooting ourselves in the foot. We have to keep Peterson under control and make them beat us with the passing game. Ravens at home will be tough just because of how physical they are on defense, again turnover margain will be key. If we play smart and not give them short fields we can beat them too. The Indy game I dont know what to say just because we know we had them beat 3 weeks ago and let them off the hook. I have been saying since sept the colts were beatable this year, but the fact we have never even had a close game at their place is why I am not overly confident. I want to see where we are 3 weeks from now. If we can go 2-1 in this stretch its going to be fun in Decemeber.

And the nice thing is we dont have to face those two DT's only JA. So that makes them only decent. We actually should be able to run on these guys because of that. We may very well see our offense from the last several weeks back on the field in Minnisota. The game is very winnable. The defense has to show up though..........

You beat me to it. Win streaks stay alive when you don't look ahead and focus on the task at hand.

Very very optimistic view but I do believe the Texans can make the playoffs as long as the AFC continues to be average.

I'm still holding on to 9-7... prolly a loss against GB, Tenn, and some other game we end up screwing up. Playoffs? For the Joker's sake, I'll say yes...

So much is involved such as injuries to both teams. I just want the team to keep growing. The switch in safeties worked ok, but I still like Demps. I am concerned that we will see even more of Andre J. getting blasted each reception. Other receivers must burn the other team to take some heat off AJ. I am fully expecting an injury to him.

It is up to Smith to have the defense in the right set on each play and Kubes has to manage the game better. The players seem to have their roles down and on offense we should see even more production. We are simply taking care of business now. We need to see how we do against a quality team before getting overly pumped.
My focus remains on D. Brown, Schaub, Slaton, JJ and D. ROB. I think also that Walters and Anderson will score a bit in the rest of the season.
