I say it's our destiny in a quasi-facetious sort of way. Part of me is way to cynical to believe in karma. But I'd be lying if I said another little part of me thinks there's some voodoo mojo going on with the ancient Indian burial grounds under Reliant & the Astrodome. I don't believe in curses, but if I did, I would certainly believe Houston football teams suffer from at least one of them.
Something in my mind tells me that the Broncos win their division and we end up facing them at some point in the playoffs. I'd rather go against the Pats or Ravens, as well...but...it's that Manning thing.
Manning in the playoffs and Manning in the regular season are almost two completely different players. If that Broncos team keeps putting itself in gigantic holes every week that they have to claw out of I'm not feeling too bad about having to face him again in crunch time.
