Now you say: "How bad are they?"

"They're so bad that when you beat them by 29 points you actually drop two spots in the ESPN poll".

We would have had to beat them by 60 just to stay where we were. Moving up on a week you play the Bengals is apparently impossible.

I just looked at that list. 25th is kind of a joke. However, what struck me looking at that list was how beatable every team above us looked. Not just 20-24. While I agree that a few teams are better than we are, I think it's a small difference and something we can certainly overcome. Basically, we're as good as anyone in the NFL this year. At least, right now we are.

The NFL is really, really wide open this year.

With the exception of maybe the Steelers and Giants, I think we could easily beat any team in the entire NFL

Fox Sports brought us up one spot from 26 to 25.

Their blurb on them: The Texans have run off three straight wins thanks to an offense that has reeled off 27+ points in five straight games. Houston's defense will likely keep this team from the playoffs, having allowed more points than any other AFC South team.

I can't really get down on them for that. It's all so very true.

Our defense tightens up as the season wears. I think we will do a lot better based on our history. Also you add Drob into the mix and we develop a stronger identity.

So, yeah I disagree. Our defense will buckle down in the home stretch.:d:

I don't know...I might add the Titans to that. I keep waiting for the clock to turn midnight on this team, and yet they keep winning.

I guess what they said is true, VY IS a winner*.

SO if we beat Minn & Balty does that mean we fly to the 14th spot :jogger:

I hope you are right. I'd really love to see that happen.
