I kinda think the opposite. They lose to us, they will be in a 2-4 hole. They will be running like crazy, I don't like our chances as much as i would have had they beaten Indy.

But then again, I could just be over reacting :texflag:

yes but if we beat packers we will possibly be 6-0 (pending jets game) and that is something i think would spark a grudge match between the two teams.

Why does everyone think that coming off a loss is going to make them any better? They were already 2-2 and barely snuck by a terrible Saints team.

Losing in Indy to a team with no defense and mostly rookies on offense is going to kill whatever confidence they had left.

I think the idea that they will somehow be a better team after losing is pretty funny. We are too insecure of a fan base. Trust in our own guys. We don't need them to be coming in overconfident in order to win. We're the #1 team in the NFL right now. We're going to get everyone's best game. We aren't a lowly bottom dweller hoping for trap games. We'll be at home on our first SFN game ever. We could beat them even if they were playing like their lives depended on it

Exactly.

If Packers had won big, we would have heard all about how good they were and how hard of a game it was going to be.

If the Packers had won at the last second, we would have heard all about how they were finally putting it together just in time to face us.

They lose, and its all about how they have a must win game coming up and will be playing lights out.

We might lose, but it won't be because they were playing extra hard. They are a good team, and "Any Given Sunday" always applies. I think the carryover from one game to the other is exaggerated when you have a week off to prepare and your next game is on national tv

Since the beginning of the season, I thought that the real tests would start with the Jets. They have not proven to be a tough team this year, but MNF games are always an extra boost for the home teams, so I think that if we go into NY and win, we've cleared a hurdle. Then I think that the Packers, Ravens, Bears and Patriots will give us a sense of how competitive the Texans truly are.

I dont buy into all that crap though. Winning consistently in this league is hard.. REAL hard.. and there is no such thing as an easy game. Look at the packers and saints. Those are good teams that cant seem to win this year.

Our "real test" is continuing to win every week in the NFL. So far.. we have passed.

I'm happy to see the Colts take down the mighty Packers. Losing to a team that bad will demoralize them and make it easier for the Texans to win Sunday night. It also makes our division look slightly better and may help our strength of schedule down the road if we happen to fall into a tiebreaker.

There's really no "bad" teams in the NFL, certainly not in terms of raw talent.
It's been said many times and it's true that there's not that much difference in talent between the teams with the worst records in the league and those with the best records. The difference is in the experience, especially the experience and talent of the teams QB, and the Colts young QB is well known as a
quick-study.

Agree. The Packers defense last year was not very good, but they survived by outscoring teams. This year the cracks are showing. Indy is a better team than the train wreck they were last year.

Even so, the Packers could have tied it if they didn't miss the field goal at the end of the game.

I'm hoping by the end of the season, the Indy games are going to be a nonfactor in our playoff standing.

We'll beat both those teams. I watched the whole game, and for whatever reason...the Green Bay defense has looked terrible this year. Secondary is the biggest issue there.

The Colts have Drew Bledsoe at QB. He's accurate, big arm, commanding presence and stuff. But he's no Peyton Manning. Not even close. Peyton is in another league, and Andrew Luck--although he's pretty talented--is just not scaring me. He was taking shots, he got picked off, he's human.

I won't predict a sweep of the Colts, but we'll take at least one game from them. We're going to beat the Packers. We're going to beat the Ravens too.

It's not nonsense but having said that it's also not carved in stone either.

This is an emotional game and most teams ride a roller coaster all season long. That's why trap games exist, that's why teams like Oakland come into Reliant last year and beat the Texans after Al Davis dies. Human motivation is affected by all kinds of things. Good teams that have seemingly underperformed and have their backs against the wall do often pull together and win to turn things around.

Just as often you see them continue their slide because there are fundamental problems with their roster. Maybe they're getting old (Pittsburgh) or maybe they're not as talented as everyone thought they were (Hopefully the Jets) or maybe they have **** for chemistry despite all their talent (Philly). Regardless you don't know what you're going to get until the game starts, at least not in week 5. There's still too much time for good teams to turn things around.

What the Texans have to do is get out there and not give them any hope. Get on the Packers early and make sure that they know they're a 2-3 team on the way down from the opening kickoff. Get the crowd into it and turn Reliant into the Packers own personal hell on the road.

But it's not nonsense. Let the Texans come in there all expecting to win against the ****ty 2-3 Packers and they'll get to .500 and we'll be bitching about how we lost to them.

I think the Colts were extra motivated this week and in the NFL it doesn't take much to close the gap between the good and the bad.

I think it speaks more to the Colts mindset than the Packers deficiencies.

I think you don't write off Rodgers the same way you don't write off Manning.

Packers got beat because they have NO running game. Kubiak gets up 21-0, he is pounding the rock. Indy has never been able to stop the run, but you have to have a running game for them to stop and Green Bay does not have one...

that is why the Indy and GB game are very, very winnable....

Flags burn the Packers (http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/flags-burn-the-packers-to75mok-173428581.html?ipad=y) [You might want to read the whole story]

What's wrong with the Green Bay Packers - besides the drops, injuries, sacks, middle-of-the-pack offense and the lack of generating turnovers, that is?

Well, they're also leading the NFL in the wrong statistical category:

Penalty yards.

Green Bay has the most penalty yards in the league with 390 and the fourth-most penalties with 40 in five games.

After correcting this issue a year ago, it's back, and this is not a distinction the Packers really want to accompany their 2-3 record.

"I figured we were probably pretty close" to leading the NFL, fullback John Kuhn said. "It's unfortunate that our penalties are so high because we're trying to be more of a physical team. We just need to do that in a correct fashion.

"We just need to play more fundamentally sound. Obviously we're not doing that well enough. They always say, don't give the official the chance to make the call."

And yet, the Packers have been playing plenty of flag football. Half a dozen Packers in the locker room Monday said they weren't aware of their ranking in the penalty department, and all of them shook their heads at the numbers.

The current status stands in sharp contrast to Green Bay's record-breaking 2011 season, when the Packers had just 76 penalties in 16 games and were docked just 591 yards, tied for best in the league. So they are capable of avoiding the flag.

What's interesting is that it hasn't seemed to matter who is calling the Green Bay games - the replacement officials during the lockout for the first three weeks of the season or the regular officials who came back to work two games ago.

The Packers were flagged 24 times in the three games with the replacement refs: 10 times for 77 yards against San Francisco, 4 for 54 against Chicago and 10 for 127 in the debacle at Seattle.

And they've been flagged 16 times with the regular officials: 7 for 43 yards against the Saints and 9 for 89 against the Colts. And those are just the penalties that held; some were declined.

"It's definitely on us as players," one Packer said Monday. "But I think the refs are out to get us this year."


It's a potential conspiracy, I tell you! But after that last statement, it may come to be the truth.:kitten:

At the outset of this season, the Packers game in week 6 was one of them I had tagged for a "tough out". After 5 weeks, understanding you still have to play each game each week full out, this packer team doesn't seem quite so "tough".

Green Bay is coached by a no-nonsense guy in Mike Mularkey. I can't believe that they haven't gone into any game this season NOT prepared to battle and play their best football against the best or even worst of opponents. BUT, at 2-3, they simply are NOT a great team. I've watched 3 of their games and it's obvious that they are a shell of what they were last year. No D to speak of. They can't run effectively at will. Rogers is getting bounced around. I see NO reason that trend can't and won't continue in week 6.

If the Texans play within themselves, in the same general fashion they have through the first 5 weeks, Green Bay will have to play out of their minds to have a chance of upsetting the Texans in Houston.

One other thing... I live in NC, so get no luxury in witnessing first hand.. BUT, I'd LOVE to see how electric Reliant is with the 5-0 Texans Hosting the 2-3 Packers. I think the 12th man will be bigger than ever this week.

I'm still a little hesitant to believe they might be a shell of what they were last year. I guess that may change if they continue down this path.

I've seen a good portion of every gave they've played this year and am noticing part of the problem is they're not getting the amount of turnovers necessary to offset the suckage on their defense.

I agree running the ball could end up being difficult for them in this game. I'm just curious what Houston's offense will be capable of. They could end up having their best game.

We've always said that though against teams they've played this season that were ranked near the bottom statistically in some defensive categories(Titans, Jets) but I feel like they'll really break out in this one.

Hearing that Benson has a lisfranc injury....bad news for him.

You know, that's funny. That was reported yesterday. But today, he was placed on IR with designation for return after 8 weeks. They wouldn't want to waste that designation, so I would have to assume that MRI showed a very much lesser Class I foot sprain. Even a typical nondisplaced Class I moderate severity Lisfranc would not allow for an RB to return in 8 weeks for game-like play. It would require a 6-week period where the player is just either non-weightbearing or minimally weightbearing through the heel (cast). If there is a Class I Lisfranc, he will be image reassessed at 2 weeks to see if his stretch/bone separation is stable with no progression. If there is no progression and the player is nontender, they may consider removing the boot and fitting orthotics early and begin rehab for return. If there is progression, they are replaced in the boot for the remainder of the 6 weeks, then placed in orthotics with rehab being started towards return to game play somewhere in the neighborhood of 11 to 18 weeks. Now, if at any point there is actual displacement, surgery similar to Schaub's course will be anticipated.

Exactly.

If Packers had won big, we would have heard all about how good they were and how hard of a game it was going to be.

If the Packers had won at the last second, we would have heard all about how they were finally putting it together just in time to face us.

They lose, and its all about how they have a must win game coming up and will be playing lights out.

We might lose, but it won't be because they were playing extra hard. They are a good team, and "Any Given Sunday" always applies. I think the carryover from one game to the other is exaggerated when you have a week off to prepare and your next game is on national tv

Good teams don't loose three in a row. That's the way I look at it. Some how or another, they find a way to keep their focus for 60 minutes & do what ever it takes to win the game. I think it's their pride that won't "allow" them to lose 3 in a row.

Greenbay hasn't lost 3 in a row, but the same thing applies. Really good teams, like who we thought Greenbay was at the beginning of the season, don't lose 2 in a row.

In the past, I hated playing the good teams after they lost, because I felt the only way for us to beat a good team, was to catch them slipping. Now, I couldn't care less. Let them bring their best game. I want to see if the Texans will get caught slipping. I doubt it, but we'll see.

I won't predict a sweep of the Colts, but we'll take at least one game from them. We're going to beat the Packers. We're going to beat the Ravens too.

Luck is gonna be good in the future. But it's gonna take him 2-3 years to show his top end.
I don't think he's gonna be Peyton, but my guess is he's gonna be one of the best QBs in the AFC.

I don't think Watt is going to let that happen. The Bulls on Parade are going to David Carr him in 2-3 years.

First rule about TexansTalk is that you don't actually mention HWSNBN by his real name!!!

If the packers play as much zone coverage as they did last week our passing game should be dominant. I look for od and/or casey to have good games.

You know, that's funny. That was reported yesterday. But today, he was placed on IR with designation for return after 8 weeks. They wouldn't want to waste that designation, so I would have to assume that MRI showed a very much lesser Class I foot sprain. Even a typical nondisplaced Class I moderate severity Lisfranc would not allow for an RB to return in 8 weeks for game-like play. It would require a 6-week period where the player is just either non-weightbearing or minimally weightbearing through the heel (cast). If there is a Class I Lisfranc, he will be image reassessed at 2 weeks to see if his stretch/bone separation is stable with no progression. If there is no progression and the player is nontender, they may consider removing the boot and fitting orthotics early and begin rehab for return. If there is progression, they are replaced in the boot for the remainder of the 6 weeks, then placed in orthotics with rehab being started towards return to game play somewhere in the neighborhood of 11 to 18 weeks. Now, if at any point there is actual displacement, surgery similar to Schaub's course will be anticipated.

There must not be anything broken, that's for sure. I can't imagine someone coming back from a LisFranc after just 8 weeks. I'll believe it when I see it.

It's interesting to note that before the season began, Vegas had the Texans favored 1.5 points over the Packers. Last week, Vegas shot the Texans up to 5 point favorites. After the Texans' performance against the Jets, Vegas has seen fit to re-assess the odds in favor of the Texans to only 3..........essentially reflecting a "home field advantage" only. :kitten:

The odd has been running between 3-1/2 to 4 this week.
It was between 4-1/2 to 5 before the Monday night game.

We are doomed.........ESPN features this game as the upset of the week!:kubepalm::wadepalm:

Upset Watch: Green Bay (+3.5) at Houston (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8489766/nfl-week-6-upset-watch-green-bay-packers-knock-unbeaten-houston-texans)

Bill Parcells often said "you are what you are," meaning that a team was truly only as good as its record. But actually, that's not really true. Analyzing a team's performance over hundreds of plays gives you a better idea of a team's quality than a win-loss record. You can't go back and change the past and wipe losses off your slate, but a binary win-loss record really isn't a good way to judge how well a team will play going forward.

The Green Bay Packers are a great example of this. The Packers have been one of the best teams in the league this year despite losing three games -- well, two games, plus one with an asterisk. Football Outsiders' DVOA ratings, which compare success on every single play to a league average based on situation and opponent, have the Packers sixth in the NFL right now. In fact, the Packers are the second-best 2-3 team in the history of DVOA stats, which currently go back to 1991. Except for the two teams playing this season, the teams in the top 10 all finished with winning records and/or made the playoffs. And if you need another reason to like the Packers over the Texans this weekend, we've nailed our last three upset picks. Just sayin'.

Guess they won't be saying that next week. Just sayin'.:kitten:
