They've been showing up for the full 60 minutes lately. I'm finally becoming convinced that yes, this is legitimately a very good football team.

I said the same thing to my buddies. I am finally feeling very confident that this team is truly legit. And it feels good! Great way to go into our bye.

Lots of ball left tho. Home stretch:

at Jacksonville Jaguars
ATLANTA FALCONS
at Cincinnati Bengals
CAROLINA PANTHERS
at Indianapolis Colts
TENNESSEE TITANS

+107 in terms of (PF - PA). Unless the Ravens beat Seattle by 29 points or more today, that's the best differential in the AFC.

I thought to myself at half time, how come we're only 13 points ahead yet I feel confident that the game is already sewn up?

Strange feeling, and it was also a lovely feeling to be bored but happy in the 4th, not sure I've seen the Texans do that to me before.

Yes and now we wait for the Jacksonville game. I'm convinced that the Texans are better than all those teams with the possible exception of the Falcons. What we have yet to learn though is will the Texans be able to continue to maintain focus and handle their own success two weeks from now after spending so much time reading their own press clippings.

Handling your own success. I thought we'd never reach this point at times. It's a nice potential problem to have.

Who could predict that at the bye week the Texans would be the #1 seed in the AFC?

Take care of business and the Texans could look at 2 home games in the playoffs. Ok they have to win the 1st. Other than Oakland they have handled business at home. Baltimore and Pittsburgh are different teams on the road. New England and the Jets have holes. They could put a team together of all 4 AFC West teams that might struggle to win a wild card game.

Bring it on.

Worse yet, I embark on a cruise on the 27th and come back on the 4th, so I have to either find a way to watch on the ship, or I'm recording two football games (Jax/ATL) or just not watching them and finding out through highlights and such.

I'm screwed.

Looking at the remaining schedules, IMO it'll come down to us and the Patriots for the overall number 1 seed. Ravens and Steelers will cancel each other out. Should be a good race down the stretch.

because we play defense now. To those of you guys (not directed at you Welsh) who thought we were a good team (except with the minor flaw of a bad defense) before we played defense....um, take a look at what a good team really looks like now. See the difference? Yeah, I thought so.

Looking at the remaining games, I think 11-5 is a very good possibility. I think that if we are going to lose any games (games in which we're not upset, that is) I'm looking at the Falcons and the Bengals to best us. With Leon Hall being on IR now, though, that thoguht may need to change.

I just get the feeling that 11-5 would be underachieving, however. It feels as though this team took their lumps and got their bad losses out of the way early and aren't ready to give slow down.


None the less, if we make the playoffs, the last 3 games certainly look as though they will allow us to head into the postseason with a good win streak on hand.

I know Andy Dalton is on fire and all, but, our defense may have a strong say in that.

I don't follow Atlanta very closely, but, I know about Julio Jones, and I think Jon Joseph may have something to say about that, as well.

Don't forget about Roddy White. Also, I try to be as realistic as I can when predicting wins/losses (at least realistic within my own thoughts, I guess). I just don't see us running the table or only losing one. That Bengals game is certainly winnable, I just think that if A.J. Green plays he could have a good game against us. At some point, I feel that some team is going to make us wish we had a bigger NT, I just hope it's not in the playoffs.

But by all means, I hope the Texans prove me wrong and end up 13-3.

We are allowed to drop a game or two or even three... but we must beat Atlanta and/or Cincinnati... or we will exit the playoffs in a hurry. We have beaten one premiere team and lost to two so far. Making it 1-4 against playoff contenders would not be a very good thing.

11-14-2011, 03:41 PM
It's been a long, long time since there was a 7-3 football team in this town. Very awesome to finally see it, but like Nitro said, it ain't over, yet.

But, with the kind of defense they are fielding and that running game, I think this is a tough team to beat. And while I don't want to count chickens, if they can continue to consistently play at this level, they can really make some noise in the playoffs.
