In Thorns case I thought "Yes we can" referred to the next round of drinks.

Quick Take from NFL.com

Quote:

Texans aim to keep pace with AFC's elite

Why to watch
The Texans secured the AFC South (playoff picture), but surely want to retain a top-two seed, with Baltimore, New England and Pittsburgh also with 10 wins already. With all of the injuries they have suffered, however, it's easy to wonder if Houston starts to rest some workhorses down the stretch.
Inside story
Cam Newton has taken a step back in ball protection the past few weeks, and his poor decisions with the ball keyed Atlanta's comeback win a week ago. Teams have taken away more of the deep stuff to Steve Smith as well. T.J. Yates comes in sky high after marshalling a few Tebow-esque drives in Cincy last week to secure the division title. Arian Foster is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry in the last three weeks -- Ben Tate looks fresher -- and has also lost his first two fumbles of the year in that span. Expect Andre Johnson to rest that hamstring another week.
Texans lead the series 2-0 over the Panthers.

I hope that this gives no one on the Texans any solace going into this game. The past as a prediction from one season to another is essentially worthless.

As far as our running game, Arian is best when there are widely open holes there for him. Tate has an increased tendency to be able to make those hole and take it through traffic. He of course uncharacteristically did fumble twice in that game. But, I have to say that our Oline probably has something to do with all of the above. Whether due to injuries or not, they have not looked to me like the crisp and virtually flawless Oline of mid-season. If that doesn't straighten up, I'm afraid that we will feel the adverse impact by the first game of the post-season.

Sort of wonder who wrote this up-to-date prophetic Quick Take. The "footprint" for this article shows that it was published 12/18 (today).:thinking:
