No need to ask "when do we raise the bar?" It's been raised. You hear the comments, etc.

I would say the GB game casted some doubt amongst some & then NE completely exposed them. The tough matchups against the lesser jags & lions didn't help the case either. After the late season meltdown I can't recall anyone outside of fans that picked or believed the Texans were Super Bowl contenders. In fact, quite a few began to refer to them as not as advertised & frauds because they believed the 12-4 was hardly indicative of good of a team the Texans actually were or were not.

I'm not sure the bar has been raised that high when we claim success & progress for a season that basically resulted in nothing more then 2 additional regular season wins. If that's raising the bar, then the bar wasn't that high to begin with imo. I guess if some how they manage 13 wins, but once again fail to get out of the Divisional round then once again they technically progressed & we should rejoice.
