Packers ran us off our own field, luckily Cutler went out vs us, and the refs guided us vs the lions. Above average in a down AFC is what we are.

We're takin' what we're given 'cause we're workin' for a livin'.

10-1 in the NFL. 2-1 vs Packers, Bears, and Lions. The spoon I see is a little less silver, but it is what it is.

I'll take it gladly, especially this Detroit game. Houston put themselves in a position to win, and won. Same with Chicgo, except they beat a proud Chicago team in their house, in their weather (if you will).

We got it handed to us against GB, so what? 10-1. The Giants won the SB with 7 of them?

The only positive is that they're finding ways to win.

We are 5-0 on the road. This was a must win for the Lions. We still found a way to win on their home field.
Why in the world is anyone complaining about this win???

Foster, Schaub, Andre and JJ all had big games.
10-1 and this team has proved it won't quit.
Best move of the game...... Getting Ball off of Megatron and getting KJ on him in the 2nd half.

Refs didn't bail us out, the Lions coach blew it for his team. Why in the hell is that so hard for people to understand? REFS had NOTHING to do with the rule. Forsett didn't look down at first glance, he looked like he slipped out of a tackle, which is probably why the ref didn't blow the whistle. I am sure at full speed, that is what the ref saw.

The play was going to be reviewed, period, end of discussion. It was a scoring play and was going to be reviewed. Refs didn't get it wrong, Schwartz did and cost his team...

Cutler didn't do crap in the game, had 2 INTS...

Yes, we are looking average over the last few weeks. However, there is not a single NFL team that is totally dominant right now, instead a handful of very good teams with flaws. Just like last year I believe it's going to come down to who is hot in the last few weeks. Our D is playing suspect, but the ship can be righted, and with a 10-1 record we have the luxury of not having the "backs against the wall" type games ahead of us. If we can fix the pass D issues then I'm not worried. If we finish the season on our heels getting gashed by every QB, then Ill be worried headed into the post season.

So you acknowledge no td for forsett. Ball didn't hit Quinn?

No Forsett was down, any and everybody could see that. Had Schwartz done his job and followed the rule, it would have gotten brought back.

As for the Quinn play, I couldn't tell if it hit his knee or if the Lion player ricochet the ball off his knee, the player that had his arm out trying to stop the ball..

From every angle you could see, you could not clearly see it hit Quinn's knee. therefore no clear evidence to overturn...

Where the hell was the 15 yard roughing the passer penalties on Suh? leg whipped Schaub in the pee-pee leg whipping is illegal and bringing Schaub down like a steer wrestler after the ball was gone...

works both ways...

Showtime100
11-22-2012, 06:41 PM
So you acknowledge no td for forsett. Ball didn't hit Quinn?

Per NFL rules, Forsett scored legally. That is irrefutable.

I think you might want to rethink it here, ATX.

How may penalties on Suh alone would have given Houston a much-needed 1st down? I can count two obvious ones off the top of my head.

I'm sure there were others I can't think of. Are we supposed to apologize to anyone, anywhere for our record?? Of course not. Nobody would and we're not either.

What is your point? Calls go for and against us all the time, it's something every team deals with. The refs missed a blatent PI right before the Forsett touchdown, but that hardly gets mentioned.

The point is that we are 10-1, and we are a very good football team no matter who or where we are playing.

That is just BS. There is no way you can say the ball hit Quin from any of the televised views. In fact if body language shows anything it was not a hit. If Quin was touched by the ball on his right hand side he would naturally look to his right. Instead he looked left. In any event, you are just playing negative nancy once again and interpreting things to your storyline.

Plus there were two roughing the passer and two blatant PI calls which were missed in the Lions' favor.

Better yet, we're in a lull right now. Better to happen now, than in the play-offs. Maybe we already hit a peak this year, we're going through a lull, we're going to have 10 days before our next game. Almost like a bye.

We'll get to playing good football after & peak at the SB.

I frankly didn't think it hit either player and didn't think the views showed the ball actually changing direction. Either way the views sucked. There were bodies everywhere. The key view from the other side of the field was missing. There was no way the on the field call should be overturned.regardless of what it was on the field.

Neither of those teams is elite right now. At least no more elite than the Texans. I think we could beat any team in the NFL any week. We could also lose to any team. As could each of the "elite" teams.

There isn't a lot separating the best from most of the rest on any given week. A few breaks and fortunate calls makes a big difference. Most games in the NFL are decided by a few plays. Good teams make a few more than the bad teams.

If not for the refs giving the Packers a loss maybe they aren't playing with their backs against the wall against us. If not for a couple of stupid penalties by us in the loss to the Packers it's a closer game and things could have been different.

Let's see...the mighty Packers of the NFC blew an 18 point lead against the Colts of the weak AFC, the mighty 49ers got destroyed by the Giants at home and tied the lowly Rams, and I do believe those mighty Giants just got thrashed recently by the lowly Bengals, again of the weak AFC. So yeah, like others have said, there is no dominant team in the NFL right now, so I like the Texans chances against anybody. :fans:

I was surprised no one had mentioned the blatant PI calls. Are you talking about the one on Walter and the other on AJ? Both were instances where both guys were completely tackled before the ball ever got to them and the defender did not appear to play the ball at all.

Yup - those were the two I was talking about.

I've said this in some other threads but... I think some people have unrealistic expectations. You've got to fight hard to win games in this league even against the bottom-dwellers. No team is perfect. There's a lot of talent on every team in the league.

No team scores on every possession. No team stops the other team on every possession.

We are 10-1. Are we perfect? No. Can we be beaten? Yes. But this team is going to fight you for it. This team is not going to give up. This team is going to keep playing to the final whistle (like Forsett did.)

The Lions remind me of us a couple of years ago when we went 6-10. If they can get their head on straight, they're going to be scary good. But they find ways to lose.

This team finds ways to win.

Dont think our D has been exposed, we had the best WR in football today going against a cowboys outkast. I think what happened with the jags was we saw an easy game against gabbert then henne came in and caught us by surprise BUT the Defense made plays when it had to, same goes for tonights game.

Ha but is our offense as good as theirs. I see a shootout. Then on the playoffs I see multiple shootouts. Our D has been exposed but is our O ready to go TD for TD. Just a question

Our D will get stops. We don't have to go toe to toe with New England or Denver. We keep them on the sideline. New England is battling with the Jets right now & they haven't unleashed Tebow on them yet. This isn't a shoot-out.

Two weeks from now we'll play New England & I'll bet you we win. I'll bet we're the favorites.

We are 10-1. Nothing average about us.

The Jags, Colts, and Titans play the same, yet easier, schedule than ours and not enjoying anywhere near the success we are.

Since we blame the safties for his woes all the time i would like to credit the safties today with his success, in the second half manning was on CJ pretty much ever play almost had a pick while covering him.

agree guys, why cant we all just agree the texans at 10-1 are a fluke, and if games were 5 QTRs peyton manning would have beaten us, and had cutler not went out of the CHI game that we wouldnt of won even though Campbell wound up throwing for more yards than cutler.

:specnatz: Plenty more i could "throw out" there but i think you get the point.

GET OVER IT - we are 10-1 have pulled out 2 OT games in a row. Our defense has had 3 bad games all season, i like 3 out of 8 odds.

I was waiting for the announcers to pull out the trivia on when was the last time a team had back to back OT wins. I wouldn't even know how to look that up?

Most teams don't have a OT game at all in a season, even more rare two, then put them back to back, then win both.

it was 1994 i think i saw. 2 teams played back to back ot's (ie both played an OT week before playing each other in ot). im guessing one of them mightve won both

Last two teams to do it were Minnesota and Chicago.

The Vikings lost to the Bucs in OT while the Bears beat the Cardinals in OT as well.

The following week, the Bears and Vikings matched up with each other, and the Vikings came out on the winning end.

Interesting how that played out. I wonder who was the last team to go back to back OT and win both of them.

Refs a bailed us out today and Cutler went down in other win

That play ... Forsett was down .... but who's to say that they dont go down and score a TD on that drive anyway ?


If anything , Schwartz bailed the Texans out .... The ref's just went by the rules the NFL has set forth.

Atlanta had a similar situation last week Vs the Cardinals tho it didnt cost them points on the play it did cost them a possession.

Not sure how reliable this site is but here is some brain candy on list of overtime stats. Up to date thru 2011
No team has ever played in three consecutive overtime games.* The last team to play in back to back overtime games were the 2010 Jets.

They can't hang with the NFC? Who cares... the only game against the NFC I care about is the big one at the end.

So you acknowledge no td for forsett. Ball didn't hit Quinn?

I guarantee you it was a TD for forsett. I know this because they put 6 points on the board. We don't know what happeed on the Quinn play. I think 58 hit it first anyway. Want me to start pointing out all of the mistakes that happen in any game? They happen. There were a few missed calls (PI especially) that would have helped us out. It happens.

We can speculate and pick out missed calls every week in every game in every sport. They do happen.

The one that pissed me off the most that went against us was the "defenseless receiver" on the punt return.. What the...? If they don't call fair catch, I thought they were fair game...

"In the act" of receiving a punt or kick is defenseless. Unfortunately the NFL doesn't define "in the act." Apparently you have to let him catch it clean and then slobber knock him.

The call was within the boundaries of the rule but I agree with the earlier post - if you don't want to get hit on a kick then call for a fair catch. The call was within the rules though.

OK, thanks for the explanation. I hope we take it to the Titans with relentless aggression next week. I'll be at that game with a friend that's a Titans fan. If I don't post after next Sunday, I'm in jail in Nashville and need bail money. Help me out Texans fans!!!

The defenseless receiver rule is about hits to the head. You can hit a runner in the head, even helmet to helmet.

Yes, we have to allow the receiver to catch it clean, fair catch or not. That's the Halo rule. That's the rule that saved us on one of Jacoby's muffed returns.

If he catches & takes a step, we could hit him in the head, even helmet to helmet. But in the act, Brandon Harris (<--- really, he was in the game) hit him straight up, head to head, face mask to face mask.

No, the defenseless player rule was what operated yesterday. Their receiver did not call for the fair catch so that rule had no application. #4 on the list of definitions of defenseless players is a player in the act of fielding a kick or a punt. Harris hit him in the head as he was fielding the ball. If Harris had hit him in the chest it would have been a muff and we could have jumped on it.
