Default We Can Still Succeed This Season....

....by playing the Spoiler!

I was thinking in a devious frame-of-mind, ways in which I can still find some form of satisfaction during the upcoming NFL holiday season. Since our team is pretty much out of any hopes for a post-season showing, and knowing that the games during Thanksgiving and Christmas are fairly meaningless; we still have something we can cheer about. Although I have lots of admiration for the Colts tenacity and "luck", and I absolutely despise the Tacks, just because they deserve despicability....we can play the Spoiler.

Depending on how the rest of our divisional two-team race develops (Tennessee and Indianapolis), we could really put the hurt on their hopes just by making a win over us very difficult. Put the scare in them, hell...just beat 'em...in their own "house"!

We have another game with the Titans and Colts away, one game with Denver and another with New England here at home. We can have fun with this.

This should teach 'em since they'll be playing us lightly - with all the devastation we have experienced this season!

This is kinda like being awarded miss congeniality.

I get what your saying but being a spoiler doesn't get us into the playoffs, higher draft pick, or much else.

Not losing to the Jags would be a good thing. Probably within reach too.

I would've never thought our run would only last 2 seasons. We're back to playing for the P word. No, not that one...Pride

The Texans will probably go 13-3 in 2014 and be back on top. But in the mean time this is great opportunity for Case Keenum to play the final ten games of the season. He's been very impressive in his first two. The Texans will probably win their next three games against the Cardinals, Raiders and Jaguars.

Dare I even say it? At 5-6, they could be back in the race for the final wild-card spot. It sucks we lost the games against the Colts, Chiefs and Seahawks - all were very winnable against three good teams. But all we can do is move forward.

Default Re: We Can Still Succeed This Season....

If the definition of success is sucking so bad that the only consolation is maybe lowering other teams' playoff seeding then I want no part in that. This would be a much more successful season if we lose every single game left in the schedule, fire everyone in the FO and all the coaches, and assemble a FO from whoever we can get from the FO's of the Packers, 49ers, and Ravens and get a good coach and coaching staff.

I wish I could've been born in Boston. At least I'd have some reason to root for actual successful teams.

Default Re: We Can Still Succeed This Season....

In my eyes the season has already been a succes, because... We may have found our future starting QB. Schaub wasn't really a future option and he had too many limitations that would've prevented him from ever taking this team where we want them to go. We needed to take a step back to move foward.. This season is strictly about the development of Keenum.

This. If Keenum proves to be the future QB of this team, I will look at this season being a small success.

I would totally agree if Kubiak wasn't still here, but as long as he us here we are going to be a problem or two away from making that next step. There is always some new problem that arises right when the last train wreck is healed from. This season has just confirmed more then any other season that Gary will hurt the team before he will get rid of a player or a coach that is a significant problem towards this team winning. Marciano and Bullock now are just the latest.

Yes, if they find out that Keenum is or isn't the QB of the future and they stay healthy for the rest of the yr.

Just one point I wanted to make- Tate can do whatever but we can't trade him or get anything for him since he's going to be a UFA after this season. Agree with the rest though, maybe not on the Clowney part but the rest is good.

It's two-fold...we win our remaining games and ruin others' chances of: Home field advantage, wild card spots, maybe division titles and so on. Indy put it on us last year when all we needed was one game to get the bye.

Winning our remaining games while playing the spoiler is not "success"?
