Houston is good. Very good, in fact. But how good can they be by the end of the season? Can they win the Super Bowl? For sure. I mentioned that their division cannot keep up with the Texans, but how about the rest of their schedule? Can they go undefeated?

Link to article HERE (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8417884/nfl-houston-texans-go-undefeated).

I posted the last paragraph, but there was a ton of good stuff in the preview snippet that I left out (I am following policy on pasted articles). Would be neat to see the full length article, but then again...gotta' be an Insider to see it, and we won't be allowed to see a full "paid for" article I suppose. Maybe somebody could paraphrase, if you have an Insider account?

Oh thats the reason we wont run the table? lol


Its highly improbable that we run the table. Every year teams have games that they lay an egg on where they should have won. Winning 11-13 games and getting into the playoffs with healthy team is just fine

They're not all that bad. The paid me to get you to click on the link, after all.

Gotta earn a buck somehow. I'm up to 13-cents with the clicks I have received so far.

Just kidding, but you gotta' admit...it's plausible.

Highly un un-plauasable. Someone has to reverse the jinx.

Can they run the table. Sure.

Will they run the table? Probably not

It's only week 3 and they're already printing this stuff? Good grief. Even the Chronicle hasn't gotten that outlandish.

But let's assume we're 13-0 and already clinched a first round bye. I doubt Kubiak would play the starters the last 3 games just to set a record.

Nah, he wouldn't do it. He'd play them just enough to keep them fresh....and we'd still run the table. :hurrah:
