Yeah, you can predict it (not you in particular, but whoever is predicting as much) but expect to get some blow back.
We're not good enough to beat the elite teams... nothing wrong with saying as much.
We're not good enough to beat Minnesota... obviously.
We're not as good as we were to start the season, & we weren't all that great even then... the evidence is there.
But when we played the Titans... beat them. Beat them pretty good. When we played the Jags. Beat them. When played the Colts, beat them. Five games, only one of them was in question, & it wasn't the Colts game.
Even if we don't play our best game, we should be able to beat the Colts in Indy & be the #1 seed. Hopefully, that will give us time to find some way to get better & have a shot at the Super Bowl.
If a Texans fan weighs the upcoming game against the Colts and comes to the conclusion his/her money would be on the Colts, how is that unacceptable? I take it as one person's opinion right or wrong and move on without judgement.
Hearing what my fellow Texan fans think is one of the reasons I come here. I don't agree with, and sometimes chuckle at some opinions but it is just an opinion.
On the other hand I do get a little perturbed when I see a fan trying to tell me how I should think as a fan (not directed at you).
Fwiw, in my mind the Colts come with roughly the same degree of difficulty as the Vikings do, if not slightly better than the Vikes as of this typing, so those that have the feeling we could lose on Sunday is not the most absurd thing in the world.
I keep hearing from the Texans they are refocused, I can only hope this is true, because my confidence in them right now is low.....and I'm a fan.
