Playoff win. Be happy. :)

This is the best game they've played in 6 weeks. The OL played better than they have recently, the defense played their best game in a long time, and the running game finally showed up like it was supposed to. Still some red zone issues to be worried about, but I'll worry about those tomorrow.

We settled for 4 FGs yes it sucks BUT i saw a better offense this week then i have seen in a while for the texans. The bengals defense is way better that the patriots defense.

AND our defense looked like it did early in the season. Everyone swarming to the ball, i saw intensity which we havent seen in a while.

Honestly ssing an improvment should be encouraging.

Agree, excellent.

Plus, so much for momentum dictating everything.

Suck it Andy Dalton and your parents, suck Bengals, suck it idiots on espn like Keshawn Martin, suck it bengals fans who came to houston, suck bengals fans in Ohio, suck it Obamahio, I mean Ohio.

The Texans played very well except for two areas: Red Zone execution and penalties. Too many penalties have dogged this team for the last few weeks, too many times negating first downs on offense and giving the opponent a first down on a defensive penalty that would have otherwise led to 4th down.

Hell ****ing yeah I'm happy with a wild card win!! WHy wouldn't I be??

I hate the fact that we had to play a wild card game and lost home field advantage, but that's the situation we got ourselves in. They took care of business and have the opportunity to get their confidence back now. Will they? Who knows, but all that matters is winning the next game. Any other game before next week doesn't matter. Not even the one we just played. It's one game at a time, and there is no way I'd be upset after just winning a playoff game. We won the damn game. Be happy that we're at least in position to make noise in the playoffs instead of looking for reasons to be mad at this team when we just won a playoff game.

It's your prerogative to be cynical about this team, but I wouldn't ever cynically wish my team luck. I'm going to be cheering from home for us to beat NE. Yes, could we have done things better? Definitely. Redzone woes bother me a bit. But we won today, and that's going to do some stuff for our team's confidence. Our D played like our D, and hell, even the offense clicked MUCH MUCH more than it has recently. I see a team that's gotten off that skid it was on last weekend.

I'm praying and hoping and cheering for them to win next weekend. I don't care if it's NE or the Chiefs - I'm going to support this team.

I was frustrated by this too, but I saw why - our D was red hot and absolutely stifling the Bengals. Pinning them down in their territory with a punt is much smarter than giving them a short field, especially with the way the D was killing it out there.

It's not like the win displeases me. I'm not unhappy they won or anything like that. I just wasn't going to breakout the fireworks and fire up the margarita machine over a home win against the Bengals. Particularly not a home win where the Texans could only muster one touchdown.... again.

Nothing's is fixed. The defense held down another fair-to-good team at home. Big deal, that's easily done. Lets see them save our asses in New England next week. That will be a real trick. Even if we get the same effort from the defense and Arian Foster shows up like he did today we still aren't going to win against the Patriots with Schaub playing the way he has for the last 5-6 games.

Schaub was lousy.

No, I don't "expect" them to win against NE. NE has a HOF QB and arguably the best coach of all time. If we lose the Patriots I won't jump off a bridge. But I certainly won't act like we're failures either.

Again, if you can't be happy over winning a playoff game, then why root for any team. That's the whole point. It's one thing to ***** and not be happy when your 8-8 team wins their last game of the season and you're a perrenial loser, but this is the 2nd season in a row that the Texans have won a wild card game in their first two playoff seasons. I will enjoy it and be proud of my team today. We are capable of beating the Patriots and we can beat them. We probably won't, but for you to have zero confidence at all in your team is pretty sad.

Not happy with what exactly? Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that we lose next week. We will have won 13 games this year, all of our key pieces come back and we are not in salary cap hell. Rumors of AJs demise have obviously been exaggerated and we will have our second best defensive player back. Dude think about that. Brian Cushing would instantly be the best defensive player on all but ,maybe 4 or 5 teams in the league. We are one of those teams. Is it Superbowl or bust? Do you think this was the window? Its shut now? Why not list key players on this team that are on the wrong side of 30? Pretty short list. Last year we cracked the window a little bit, we aren't shutting it any time soon. If you are disappointed I get that, but all of the bitching? Seriously? Do people just not remember wondering when we would finally win a game?

This isn't like the Browns one and out and wait a decade, we are a contender for the forseeable future. Wonder where DTE is..

No, I won't be satisfied, but I won't act like our team stinks either. I'll be enjoying watching my team compete in the 2nd round of the playoffs for the 2nd season in a row. We've got a HC that I think we'll always hold us back, but I'll enjoy the ride. I won't sit here like some whiney ass just because I don't think we're as good as the Patriots knowing we can still pull off a win if we play our best game. That's what it will take. Will we do it? Probably not, but I'll be excited to watch us try. With you, the season is already over and there is no reason to even watch, because it's impossible that we could possibly win. I don't know why you even care about this team if you can't be happy to see them give it their best shot in the playoffs. And as far as the Wild Card game goes, that's one extra Texans game I get to watch. We won, and any playoff victory is a big win.

You can tell who all the bandwagon fans are because they're the first ones to start whimpering after games like this. We're playing and winning meaningful games in January. A few years ago we weren't even playingb meaningful games in November. Enjoy this, there are 20+ teams and fan bases who would kill for the chance we have

Wow this is seriously sad. I mean seriously i think some of you would be happier if the texans had lost. Wow guys this is just sad.

We all griped before because we wanted a competitve team, and since we have gotten one it has only gotten worse.

Question do some of you know that when we have more points and get live to play another day is a good thing.

Ok

The team that scores the most wins, incase my above statment was to complicated for you.

This board needs some lithium.

Either the offense is fixed or it isn't. Was it improved from last week? Yes. However, still only one touchdown today. That is still cause for concern. I will still take the win and the Texans live to fight another day. Maybe they will pull a rabbit out of the hat next week in Foxborough. We will see.

Yeah that defense left me with no hope as well, i mean not dominate at all. Looked slow and sloppy gave up a million 3rd downs, i feel ya :kitten:

I'm not fooled by this team . The Bengals had a bad game plan by not going deep enough early. The offense moved the ball well but 1 out of 4 in red zone trips won't cut it against Belichick and Brady. Schaub's performance was Ok but he's going to have play a lot better for us to even be competitive. I'm just being a realist here.

Not happy with what exactly? Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that we lose next week. We will have won 13 games this year, all of our key pieces come back and we are not in salary cap hell. Rumors of AJs demise have obviously been exaggerated and we will have our second best defensive player back. Dude think about that. Brian Cushing would instantly be the best defensive player on all but ,maybe 4 or 5 teams in the league. We are one of those teams. Is it Superbowl or bust? Do you think this was the window? Its shut now? Why not list key players on this team that are on the wrong side of 30? Pretty short list. Last year we cracked the window a little bit, we aren't shutting it any time soon. If you are disappointed I get that, but all of the bitching? Seriously? Do people just not remember wondering when we would finally win a game?

This isn't like the Browns one and out and wait a decade, we are a contender for the forseeable future. Wonder where DTE is..

It's not like the win displeases me. I'm not unhappy they won or anything like that. I just wasn't going to breakout the fireworks and fire up the margarita machine over a home win against the Bengals. Particularly not a home win where the Texans could only muster one touchdown.... again.

Nothing's is fixed. The defense held down another fair-to-good team at home. Big deal, that's easily done. Lets see them save our asses in New England next week. That will be a real trick. Even if we get the same effort from the defense and Arian Foster shows up like he did today we still aren't going to win against the Patriots with Schaub playing the way he has for the last 5-6 games.

Schaub was lousy.

This is pretty much how I feel, too. It's good we won, but we shouldn't have been playing today. Next week we'll probably be playing the weather & the officials, too. Beating the Patriots is tough enough without other factors. Guess I just don't want to turn into that Titans fan who used to brag that his team was better than ours. What have they ever done?

Offense gets you to the playoffs. Defense win championships. If our offense is average, and our defense is dominate I will take our chances.

The Texans won't be the first team to be an underdog that is capable of pulling an upset. It happens all the time in the playoffs.

Tex, you've been generalizing and categorizing fans lately...it looks bad. Just let it go, man. You don't have to police the whole damn board and make people were badges so that we all know which people you want locked away.

People sometimes want to vent. You can ignore them or you can reply without the insults, man.

First, he called out Tex.
Second, what is there to vent about? Unless they're pissed because we won....?

Sorry, but if you flip flop on your own team in the best season of their existence, and can't even be happy that they won a playoff game, then THAT IS BAD. Shoot I've bitched and bitched about this team for years. So we had a bad end to a great regular season?? So what. Things don't always go perfectly. The Giants won the SB with an 8-8 season and a 9-7 season when hardly anyone gave their team a shot. I don't think we can do that, but it's not impossible. Stranger things have happened.

But spare me with this bull**** about me labeling anyone especially when I'm being called names for being happy about a win. If you can't be happy about a playoff win, then I don't think you're a fan. That defeats the entire purpose of being a fan. Getting to the playoffs is the first goal to a season. Then winning in the playoffs is next. We've done both so far. I don't hear you bitching about these people bashing our team with every post or the guy that calls me a dumbass because I'm happy about our team's victory. So, don't give me this BS about it "looking bad." I'm tired of hearing so called fans flip flopping on whether they want to support the team every week. That's as fair weather as it gets. We had a 12-4 season. Not a 7-9 or 4-12 season. I hate Kubiak with all I got as a HC. A part of me thinks we'll never win anything with that guy, but I can't do anything about that. I'll have to deal with him as a HC. But if we're in the playoffs, I'll be rooting on Gary and the team either way. I'd love for Gary Kubiak to prove me wrong. You want to ***** about everything wrong with the team and act like we suck then at least wait until the off season. Doing it in the playoffs when we win is pathetic.

Just become a fan of whomever the SB winner is every year.

Can't be happy about a team that has only scored 2 TDs in the last 3 games. let me say that again, 2 F'ing TDs in the last 3 games. You think FGs are going to beat an elite team like NE, but no be happy with a win over a mediocre Bengals team...

So there is a hell of allot more to say, and it isn't good. The farce that is the Houston Texans ends next week...

Defense could score 10 TDs in the play offs and the offense zero, and we could win the superbowl. So who really cares how win as long as we win, and all i see is a team that is now 1-0 with 2 more games to go to get to the big dance.

I agree with bckey.

There's been too much berating of fans by fellow fans on here.

I think a lot of that is misplaced anger. Can't really do anything about the dwindling state of this franchise...so let's just take it out on fellow fans.

Maybe we are not the Steelers or Patriots or Packers....but dwindling?

The franchise as a whole has been moving forward, slowly gaining respect. I remember a time when some people didn't even know the Texans were a NFL team, couldn't name a player on the team, would lock the team into the top 10 of every draft...

I think a fan has every right to enjoy this, it may not last forever. Fans get spoiled. The moment this team goes back to being horrible (which is likely to happen as it happens with every franchise.) we'll all be wishing and hoping for the team just to make the playoffs and be relevant again.

Now i'm not saying be satisfied with only winning one playoff game a year...but enjoy the playoff years while you can. Some teams like the Bills can only look back YEARS ago to a period where they even made the playoffs.

Most fans are spoiled though. You let them win one playoff game and the next they are expecting a dynasty. I see Giants fans complaining about this and that and all I'm thinking is "Wow...they won two super bowls recently..."

finish in the redzone is the end all be all. but we cant get it right. hell why cant we score from 20+ out to eliminate the red zone woes?

I don't think it's statistically probable for us to be that bad in the redzone continually, so i'm staying optimistic. I think our problem is always starting out with a run on 1st down if we are there. If we are in the 5 or so then by all means I think that's the right call, but it's generally more difficult for holes to open up in the redzone, and I think it can be a wasted play. Then you have the inevitable Schaub 4 yard out play and you're stuck on 3rd and 5 or 6 seemingly every time on a condensed field. I think we need to open up the play calling just a bit more in that area.

I actually think we have been losing respect. Prime time losses to GB and NE killed any respect we obtained up to those games. Then the Texans went and blew the #1 seed, a bye week and home field throughout the playoffs. You would be lucky to find anyone picking the Texans and their slowly earned respect over the Patriots next week.

Packers fans HAVE BEEN to the Promised Land, Tex. Damn straight they think their guys can do it. Because they HAVE.

Our guys? They've earned the fickle nature of their fans. I haven't just started watching football in the past two years, Tex. Neither has BullNation. Neither has bckey. More than just YOU have seen what GREAT looks like and what less than great looks like.

The Giants are making people think that that's the rule...when it's just the exception. Fewer Cinderella teams like the Giants end up making it to the Super Bowl and then actually winning it. 90% of the time the top teams make it to the Super Bowl.

Every now and then your St. Louis Rams and your New York Giants take conventional wisdom and flip it on its head. Very few teams like those end up shocking the world.

Nobody is WISHING we lose. Who has said that? Show me. Nobody has. But because we're saying that the Pats are going to beat us with rubber hoses and laugh at us? That's more like bracing for the inevitable, which is not anything as evil as what you're pinning on some fans around here, Tex.

First off, do your damn research before you throw a blanket statement around, especially about me. I have been pointing out faults with this offense and defense for weeks, well before the playoffs started.

Your statements about the Packers and NE are asinine to say the least. That 9-7 team that beat that 15-1 Packers team would have crushed this Texans team. The Packers are a legit contender THIS year, just like NE is. How do I know, because they absolutely crushed this supposed Super Bowl contender Texans team. that is the BIGGEST difference in these teams. Packers and Pats KNOW they can win a Super Bowl, Texans just HOPE they can get there...

In what blue hell where the Texans even remotely in the game the last time they played NE and in what blue hell do you think they will be in this one? It was 21-0 before the 1st quarter ended.

If by Zeus' beard they happen to pull of the upset of the year, then hey more power to them BUT NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING in the last 7 weeks shows that this offense and this defense can come close to beating NE next week...

so keep living that fantasy, somebody has to...

Our defense didn't even allow a TD today. What was it two FG's they gave up?? Can we do that against NE? Probably not, but these guys in here that will only be happy if we beat NE are so clueless about the past in the playoffs considering the fact that the Patriots offense was horrible last season against the Ravens in the playoffs. It took a dropped pass in the end zone for the Ravens to lose that game. The Pats almost lost to the Jags just two weeks ago. We are capable of winning even with a bad offensive performance like we had today. Probably won't happen, but the Pats great offense has gotten shook several times in the playoffs. We have defense that is capable of being great on any given week. It's been that way all season. Shaky at times and all, but they've been great in many games. One game at a time.

3. MNF game vs. Bears? Same thing. People freaked out, I said "Nope. We got this. It looks ugly, but we got this. We're going to win." We won.

4. Jax game? I was so crazy about this team, I knew we were going to win. Even in OT, I knew we would. We did.

5. Detroit? Same thing. Even when the Lions lined up for the game winning FG in OT...I knew he was going to miss it. Not even one single doubt, he was going to find a way to doink it or shank it. And he did. And we won, just like I knew we would.

6. Something happened in that Lions game. I don't know if it was Schaub's foot, or his mojo was drained or what. Something happened.

7. I predicted we'd lose to the Pats. I knew our only chance was IF the Pats stumbled AND we brought our A+ game all the way from 1st qtr. to the final whistle. Boy, I took an ass chewing from a lot of posters the week leading up to that game. But, I was right. It was fugly.

8. I told people the Vikings were really REALLY probably a tough game for us. I said Gary had it in him to go 1-1 in the last two games. b0ng was trotting out his infamous "Christian Ponder" images and graphs and tried to tell us we shouldn't be scared of him. I knew we were screwed. And we were. Watching that game, I had zero sense that we'd win. How can I know we'd win vs. Jets, Bears, Jax, and Lions...all in those similar "squeaker games" where previously we had outlasted the opponent in a tough game???

9. Colts game. Well, I said "We're screwed. We're not winning HFA." And we didn't.

10. A win in the playoffs vs. the Bengals? I'm glad the fans in Reliant got to see the guys win one. I genuinely am. They deserved to see our guys win one last time because this next one is probably going to be ugly. Again.

So tell me, just because I call it like I see it...I, and others like me, are BAD fans and need to root for other Super Bowl teams because we're so awful???

I think you need to slow down, honestly. People can compartmentalize and put things in boxes: Here's my Bengals win, it goes in this box. But here comes the Patriots...so here's my "Well, we just prolonged the inevitable" box...One doesn't weigh any heavier than the other to us. A win? It was A win. Singular. One win. What happens next? Probably more of what happened [reviously against Brady & Co.

But yeah, they could shrivel up and lay down. It happens. The Jets found that out back a few years ago. But it's not LIKELY.

So put down the gavel. Let people speak.

Dang some of you guys are acting like we freaking lost. No one is saying you can't come on here and criticize the team but dang people try to find a little positive in the win. Half of you guys that are pissed that we won ugly thought we were going to lose the game anyway. Whining to whine is annoying. The defense played their tails off today. That's something to be proud if and point out. Try and enjoy the fact that we didn't blow it at home and that we are one step deeper into the playoffs.

I'll give you a positive, the defense looked like the defense that started this year and played last year and the special teams didn't give up a TD, hooray!

the offense, however looked EXACTLY like it did with TJ Yates at QB, and the problem is they had their starting QB running the offense this go around and only scored 1 red zone TD.

First off, do your damn research before you throw a blanket statement around, especially about me. I have been pointing out faults with this offense and defense for weeks, well before the playoffs started.

Your statements about the Packers and NE are asinine to say the least. That 9-7 team that beat that 15-1 Packers team would have crushed this Texans team. The Packers are a legit contender THIS year, just like NE is. How do I know, because they absolutely crushed this supposed Super Bowl contender Texans team. that is the BIGGEST difference in these teams. Packers and Pats KNOW they can win a Super Bowl, Texans just HOPE they can get there...

In what blue hell where the Texans even remotely in the game the last time they played NE and in what blue hell do you think they will be in this one? It was 21-0 before the 1st quarter ended.

If by Zeus' beard they happen to pull of the upset of the year, then hey more power to them BUT NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING in the last 7 weeks shows that this offense and this defense can come close to beating NE next week...

so keep living that fantasy, somebody has to...



I don't give a rat's ass what happened in the last Patriots game. Get over it. That's in the past. All that matters is how we both match up next week. I don't care about who would have beaten the Texans last year out of the Packers or the Giants. The point is that hardly anyone expected the Giants to make that run last season or in their first SB run. NO ONE thought that Eli could make all the clutch plays he did in their first SB run. But guess what!? It happened. It's possible. I don't think we'll win either, but I damn sure won't call it a loss until the game is over. I watch almost every Patriots game and they've got weaknesses all over their defense and their wideout is not that good either. You take Welker out and defend their TE's well, and their offense struggles. Can we do that? Probably not, but it's possible.

And no, you weren't all over this site talking about what pretenders we were when we had one loss. I didn't see all the bashing of this team from you like I do right now. We could have lost 3 out of 4 at the beginning of the year, and would you be happy at this moment now?? I bet you would. But what if we lost in the first round after winning like 8 in a row looking like a hot team??

Our defense didn't even allow a TD today. What was it two FG's they gave up?? Can we do that against NE? Probably not, but these guys in here that will only be happy if we beat NE are so clueless about the past in the playoffs considering the fact that the Patriots offense was horrible last season against the Ravens in the playoffs. It took a dropped pass in the end zone for the Ravens to lose that game. The Pats almost lost to the Jags just two weeks ago. We are capable of winning even with a bad offensive performance like we had today. Probably won't happen, but the Pats great offense has gotten shook several times in the playoffs. We have defense that is capable of being great on any given week. It's been that way all season. Shaky at times and all, but they've been great in many games. One game at a time.

clueless says the guy living in the past...Jax also almost beat THIS Texans team so what is your damn point?

You are contradicting yourself at every turn and we are clueless? "We are capable of winning even with a bad offensive performance like we had today. Probably won't happen, but the Pats great offense has gotten shook several times in the playoffs."

you dont' even have confidence in this offense and team by just what you said and yet you blast those who see this team for what it is...

You can't head to NE with a loss. With the way you're carrying on, it might as well be a loss.

Fans like you pray for losses because being right is more important than winning and looking like a dip sheat and getting proved wrong.

You talked a lot of **** to me in the weeks leading up to our last two games.

And you were wrong both times. And you never once came back and said "Yeah, all those things you said were going to happen...they happened."

I personally dislike you. You come on here and you say such hateful things to people. HATEFUL.

You accuse people of not being real fans. And Tex is doing the same thing. And neither of you think what you're doing is wrong. But it is.

"Fans like you PRAY for losses..."

Seriously? Wow. It sounds like you just don't like being wrong and knowing you were too drunk with Kool Aid to have seen what was coming. Sober up sometime and just listen to others. People have been around here a long time.

I was here when this board first started 10 years ago. Were you? I've talked a lot of football, year round, with people on here. The good, the bad, the indifferent. Rain. Shine. 12 people, total, on here. And now with its hundreds of posters.

Oline played great today. I've been one of the only ones bashing the Oline's play lately while everyone else blames Schaub for everything. Our running game was really good today, and people forget that is who we are. That is how we have won all season with running the ball to set up the play action. We had several wins this season just like we had today, and people were fine with it then, because our record looked great. Now it seems that these angry people want us to lose just so they can fly in here and say "I told you so" and ruin our excitement for the playoffs.

You have totally knee jerked on this team GP. You acted as if we were the team to beat going into the season, and the Texans did just that almost all season long. We end up having a few bad losses at the very end of the season, and you totally act like you have bailed on this team. I remember you getting upset when Rick Smith was criticized in the off season for some of his moves and getting this cap all messed up. Then you start all these threads whining because we couldn't get Manning when it was damn near impossible, but yet before the season you didn't want Rick Smith being criticized for his moves with this team's salary issues and his lack of moves to bring in a competent WR to compliment AJ. It was all about how great Martin would be even though he hadn't proved a thing. That was knee jerk as well. That is going from one extreme to the next with the drop of a hat.

I think 2010 in Washington was the last time I saw Schaub do something clutch in the final seconds of a game. The TD pass to AJ in the back of the EZ.

I still have that game on DVR. And I still rewatch it. But even with that win, guess how it came about? Shanahan got away from what had worked in the first half...he stopped passing the ball and tried to do what all former Denver coaches do: do the opposite of what had been working. Kubiak does the same thing, turtles up in the 2nd half and here lately he's been doing that in the damn 1st quarter!

But those three things I mentioned were all problems all during the previous mounth...even against so called teams we should have beat like the Colts and the Vikings.

Others are happy to get this weeks win and it makes the general state of "the quest" right now all better for them. Others still know that the team has put themselves in a tough spot and they're likely to get blasted next week in New England. Both groups are clearly annoyed with each other and tired of all the stupid sunshine pumping and pointless negativity that the other is bringing.

Our guys? They've earned the fickle nature of their fans. I haven't just started watching football in the past two years, Tex. Neither has BullNation. Neither has bckey. More than just YOU have seen what GREAT looks like and what less than great looks like.

The Giants are making people think that that's the rule...when it's just the exception. Fewer Cinderella teams like the Giants end up making it to the Super Bowl and then actually winning it. 90% of the time the top teams make it to the Super Bowl.

Every now and then your St. Louis Rams and your New York Giants take conventional wisdom and flip it on its head. Very few teams like those end up shocking the world.

Nobody is WISHING we lose. Who has said that? Show me. Nobody has. But because we're saying that the Pats are going to beat us with rubber hoses and laugh at us? That's more like bracing for the inevitable, which is not anything as evil as what you're pinning on some fans around here, Tex.

And I thought I was a person of extremes....

Maybe that's the point your missing. No one who is celebrating this win is completely happy with today's performance. We had way too damned many penalties at the wrong time (like there's ever a good time). Schaub completed 20 of 29 passes to RBs and TEs - where the hell are the WRs?? Special teams are giving up way too many yards on kickoffs. We still didn't convert but one of our redzone opportunities into a touchdown and had to settle for FGs again. Watt and Brooks still seem to be the only ones of our front seven that can muster a sack.

We see the warts. But despite those warts we won anyway. You say we beat a "lesser opponent". Maybe. But so frikkin' what?! We didn't make the schedule. We played whoever they sent here to play. Reliant is 2-0 in playoff land. And that's cause for celebration today.

And for the record, I don't expect to go up to New England and win. But I'm not going to let you steal my sunshine. Not today. There will be enough time for weeping and gnashing of teeth next week.

Learn how to read. I never said that in that post. I stated that no one thought that Eli could and he did. Not only in one season, but in two SB runs. What people thought was impossible wasn't exactly that. And for the record Schaub arguably had a better season then Eli did this year, so stop acting like Eli is some elite wizard when he isn't. Schaub won't ever be this guy to make tons of clutch plays. So what. He never has been. You just now figuring this out. This team's formula for winning isn't and never will go through Schaub. It doesn't have to though. We have to win with a great running game, minimal mistakes, and by allowing a low score from the other team.

Then you need to do your research, like I said, I have been all over this team for the last month and even before that when they were winning ugly...

The research is that for the majority of the season we were a top 5 defense and until that slump we had on offense we were the 2nd and then the 3rd highest scoring team in the league. DO YOUR RESEARCH. They did fall apart, but that doesn't mean they can't pick it back up, nor does it mean they have to in order to beat NE.

Man, all the teething you and I have done at each other over the years in here when our team was horrible or just average. Whether it was arguing over Kubiak or Rick Smith or Bob. You know I hate Kubiak's style of coaching and I'll never be confident in him as our HC, but I'll always root for us in the playoffs. I understand wanting a loss possibly when your team is horrible and losing may get rid of a bad HC or to get a #1 pick in the draft, but we've been considered the best team in the league by a lot of people for a majority part of the season. I don't see how certain fans or alleged fans could get this angry and bitter just because of slump at the end of the season to where they can't even be happy that we won a game to move on to the next week of the playoffs. That's what this game is all about. This is it!

Yeah, we did make the schedule. We made it when we failed to show up against Minnesota and Indy. Other than that I got no issue with what you're saying. Enjoy your sunshine by all means.

You have totally knee jerked on this team GP. You acted as if we were the team to beat going into the season, and the Texans did just that almost all season long. We end up having a few bad losses at the very end of the season, and you totally act like you have bailed on this team. I remember you getting upset when Rick Smith was criticized in the off season for some of his moves and getting this cap all messed up. Then you start all these threads whining because we couldn't get Manning when it was damn near impossible, but yet before the season you didn't want Rick Smith being criticized for his moves with this team's salary issues and his lack of moves to bring in a competent WR to compliment AJ. It was all about how great Martin would be even though he hadn't proved a thing. That was knee jerk as well. That is going from one extreme to the next with the drop of a hat.

Bail? LOL.

Aw hell, Tex. You are doing exactly what you do in the NSZ: LABELING.

It's just as sad here, btw.

You got me wrong on the Peyton Manning thing. I at first thought we should try for him, then I felt like maybe he was a liability with his neck, then I thought "Well hell, now it looks like we never even ATTEMPTED to look into the idea of getting him..." I went back and forth on that issue.

Dude, the Rick Smith issue? Yeah, he cannot control all factors. No GM can. Decisions were made by this FO that impacted and dictated moves that had to be made. I was OK with letting Dressen and Brisiel walk, couldn't match their offers. Was smart to re-sign Foster, Brown, and Myers. What's the alternative? Traded 'Meco, which saved cap room and frankly he wasn't being used by Wade much at all. Got a draft pick for him, a nice one, which is a rare thing for ANY Texans GM to have accomplished in 10 years here. Good for us. How is that knee-jerking? I don't see it, Tex. LOL.

Martin impressed in camp, and in the preseason, and really he had some slip-ups and Kubiak lost confidence in him. So I'm a bad fan for "bailing" on this team YET I had confidence in Martin and was excited about Kubiak's decision to give him major playing time? Isn't that a contradiction?

You're reaching, Tex. You're trying to paint me with a broad brush here, and it's not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination.

I giggled when Matt did the "Yessss!" hip thrust celebration move when we converted at the end of the game to keep the clock ticking. He has no clue how poorly he's been playing for like the last month+. He got a playoff win. Good. Now what? How does he solve the problem that is New England? He probably can't.

My only good feelings today were this: The fans in the stadium got to see our guys win, at home, and there wasn't a messy loss (at home) which would have been a real bummer for them.

Outside of that, there wasn't much to hang our hat upon today. The long passes Dalton missed with AJ Green...those won't be overthrown by Tom Brady. The passes dropped by Gresham and the others? Won't be dropped by Welker and Gronk and Gonzalez and Marshall and Woodhead. Everything the Bengals did today, the Pats won't do that. And everything the Bengals didn't do today, the Patriots WILL do.

We're about to face the same team we faced in New England on MNF. And we, Tex, are the same team they faced as well. How does that shake out, if all things are equal?

DISCLAIMER: I said this same thing the week leading up to the first contest between us and the Pats. I was also labeled a loser and an ******* back then, too. But then again...I'm a KNEE JERKER, right? Right.

I put the Bengals in the same tier as the Jags and Lions and Bears...all those teams are teams we will beat. SHOULD beat.

I'm not going to sit here and pretend that a win vs. the Bengals means we have a good shot vs. the Pats.

To say so is just very homer'ish. I stopped being a homer the day David Carr went belly up here. I learned from that. But hey, I'm a bad fan. I forgot. I should leave.

There's a reason that the Bengals have not had an offensive TD in the last 3 games. This was a "monumental"battle of that team against a team that had 0 offensive TDs in the last 3 games.

Man, all the teething you and I have done at each other over the years in here when our team was horrible or just average. Whether it was arguing over Kubiak or Rick Smith or Bob. You know I hate Kubiak's style of coaching and I'll never be confident in him as our HC, but I'll always root for us in the playoffs. I understand wanting a loss possibly when your team is horrible and losing may get rid of a bad HC or to get a #1 pick in the draft, but we've been considered the best team in the league by a lot of people for a majority part of the season. I don't see how certain fans or alleged fans could get this angry and bitter just because of slump at the end of the season to where they can't even be happy that we won a game to move on to the next week of the playoffs. That's what this game is all about. This is it!

Kudos Mr. Tex! I'll take any kind of win we can get in the playoffs.

Our defense completely dominated them today, and that's been the strength of our team all season. We looked closer to the team we've been all year.

You two should get a room.

BFD. He and I have high-fived each other in the NSZ forum and have gone at each other's throats here in the Texans forum. Get a clue: We can all agree elsewhere and yet be at odds in other forums and other topics.

You need no momentum to beat a team like the Bengals.

All you have to do is grind it out. You can't "grind it out" vs. the Patriots.

We tried that already, remember? Did you watch the MNF game? We tried to grind it out, and it lasted about 7 minutes into the first quarter...then the Patriots punched us in the proverbial nose and we proverbially layed down and cried "Uncle!"

But all that's gonna' change, right? I want to know by what miracle Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub are going to reverse all of this.

I agree, and its sad, embarassing really....there are 20 other teams sitting at home...some who's collective season was over by like week 8 that have real gripes about their teams.....and we've got fans over here who can't even enjoy their team advancinginto the playoffs not even for 24 hours b/c it wasn't as dominant of a performance as they would've liked or b/c we're going to play a team in their house as opposed to ours and likely lose.....as if it was guaranteed we would beat them here...it appears a few in here OD'ed on the koolaid earlier in the season when we were 11-1 and had convinced themselves we were SB bound...now b/c it appears that's unlikely, they feel betrayed. ....in any event, thats not problem...im going to celebrate..:d: and worry about next week.....next week

In an effort to get back to talking FOOTBALL...

Didn't you say that one of your chief concerns about Matt's recovery was how his foot would hold up over a full 16-game schedule, especially with the severity of his injury?

Today you were making a lot of posts about the position of his foot in regards to the outcome of those throws.

I think I remembered you drawing attention to the potential for "wear and tear" back during the camp and preseason threads here. Is that maybe part of the problem with him down the stretch this past month?

They did not try that. They couldn't even try it because their mistakes put them down by 21 in the blink of an eye.

Foster had 15 carries, (hardly grinding it out) ran it one time for a great gain on a holding call then the Texans decided they wanted to start passing.

I don't see why it couldn't change. Why even play the game then? I mean really?

I label people in the NSZ?? This coming from one of the biggest conservatives that constantly bashes liberals, Ron Paul fans, and etc? :spit:

Thank you Pot.

You got me wrong on the Peyton Manning thing. I at first thought we should try for him, then I felt like maybe he was a liability with his neck, then I thought "Well hell, now it looks like we never even ATTEMPTED to look into the idea of getting him..." I went back and forth on that issue.

Exactly All over the place on it, changing from one day to the next with extreme opinions back and forth. Then waiting until the Texans lose a game or two after winning 12 to bash the franchise for it. Typical of you and no one would be surprised.

Dude, the Rick Smith issue? Yeah, he cannot control all factors. No GM can. Decisions were made by this FO that impacted and dictated moves that had to be made. I was OK with letting Dressen and Brisiel walk, couldn't match their offers. Was smart to re-sign Foster, Brown, and Myers. What's the alternative?

Got a draft pick for him, a nice one, which is a rare thing for ANY Texans GM to have accomplished in 10 years here. Good for us. How is that knee-jerking? I don't see it, Tex. LOL.

You bashed Smith for years. After one good season, he's untouchable to you? That gave me a good laugh at the time. A GM that was supposedly horrible all of a sudden was this really good one because we had one good season. But now that you're hating on any chance that this team has, well I'd say you were wrong about Rick Smith then since you think we have no chance. You're bashing us for not going after Manning, and because we aren't capable of winning in the playoffs. Saying our GM is above criticism and then acting like our team is such a joke is a huge contradiction.

Martin impressed in camp, and in the preseason, and really he had some slip-ups and Kubiak lost confidence in him. So I'm a bad fan for "bailing" on this team YET I had confidence in Martin and was excited about Kubiak's decision to give him major playing time? Isn't that a contradiction?

You had confidence based off of a pre season performance where guys flop from that all the time. I told you that, but it didn't matter. You knew they were going to be really. Well, they haven't been, but I haven't heard you even whisper a word about that. Only blaming Schaub for everything that goes wrong. You even suggested to bench the starting QB before the playoffs. Talk about absurdity. No HC would ever do that.

You're reaching, Tex. You're trying to paint me with a broad brush here, and it's not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination.

I'm stating the same thing tons of posters have told you over and over for years.

I giggled when Matt did the "Yessss!" hip thrust celebration move when we converted at the end of the game to keep the clock ticking. He has no clue how poorly he's been playing for like the last month+. He got a playoff win. Good. Now what? How does he solve the problem that is New England? He probably can't.

So you know what Schaub thinks now and how he feels about his own play? Lol! Conspiracies again. Instead of being happy that we won, you laughed at the team you claim to support. Pat yourself on the back.

My only good feelings today were this: The fans in the stadium got to see our guys win, at home, and there wasn't a messy loss (at home) which would have been a real bummer for them.

Yeah, we won against a team that had just won 7 out of their last 8 that was also a playoff team last season. We beat a good team that had been playing a lot better then we have lately. Had we won 7 out of our last 8, you'd probably be acting like we were SB bound knowing you.

Outside of that, there wasn't much to hang our hat upon today. The long passes Dalton missed with AJ Green...those won't be overthrown by Tom Brady. The passes dropped by Gresham and the others? Won't be dropped by Welker and Gronk and Gonzalez and Marshall and Woodhead. Everything the Bengals did today, the Pats won't do that. And everything the Bengals didn't do today, the Patriots WILL do.

I watch Brady every week. He over throws balls in every game. His players drop balls in every game. It may not be a lot, but the Patriots have lost just as many games as we have this year. They almost lost to the freaking Jags just two weeks ago. How you act like our team or any playoff team is incapable of beating any other team with all of the upsets in playoff history is mind blowing actually. Patriots haven't won a SB in like 10 years or something like that. We probably won't win, but we certainly can win.

We're about to face the same team we faced in New England on MNF. And we, Tex, are the same team they faced as well. How does that shake out, if all things are equal?

Doesn't matter. All that matters is how we play next week and how they play next week. That's up to "GARY KUBIAK" to have OUR TEAM READY.

DISCLAIMER: I said this same thing the week leading up to the first contest between us and the Pats. I was also labeled a loser and an ******* back then, too. But then again...I'm a KNEE JERKER, right? Right.

Our defense played better than they have been playing our offense controlled the clock like they were doing during the first 12 games of the season. We were playing against a better defense than we have seen recently yet we moved the ball better. Not sure how you did not see some improvement because it was there.

I am amazed that we are lamenting a win. Our defense played very well, our offense played better than it did in any of the last 4 weeks and against a team with a top 5 defense.

I don't think we can beat NE with the way we played in the red zone, but nonetheless we actually executed on a gameplan that we set out. Just enjoy the win and let's hope this offense can fix its RZ problems .
