Anything is possible right now. I'm feeling good about the Texans chances to upset the Ravens on the road. I would like to see the Steelers beat the Broncos and Patriots, which is also a realistic possibility. The Texans hosting the Steelers at Reliant Stadium in the AFC Championship would be an incredible atmosphere. I believe in the craziest things happening at this time of the year.

Hopefully Owen Daniels doesn't have a broken hand though. We definitely need him for the big playoff games coming up. He made some tough catches against the Bengals yesterday that I don't think Dreessen or Casey would have caught. All that being said, I'm kind of feeling the Tebow mania against the Steelers at home. But I know Denver would have little to no chance to beat the Patriots on the road. The Steelers can beat the Patriots on the road.

I want to buy tickets to the AFC Championship game at Reliant Stadium so I need the Steelers and Texans to keep advancing.

We're in the 5000 passing yards era of football now and it is noticeable that the top seeds in both conferences have considerably weaker D's than you'd have expected to see up there in the past.

It seems that, for the regular season at least, success has been built on having an O which takes advantage of the increasingly pass happy rules affecting Defence.

It will be interesting if/when we do meet these better O's, because much like when Dalton was seemingly beginning to pick our D apart at will towards the end of the second half yesterday, I'm still confident in our D to find a way to make that big negative play and turn the tide.

That said, for me, this season is now in the books as a success. So everything else they do is all gravy.

No way. We're here now, and I'm ****ing starving. I hope the players aren't content and I hope they don't think that everything else from here on out is "gravy".

Go for the gusto.

The only reason why Dalton starting picking apart our defense is because they let off the gas.

Default Re: Do you honestly believe we can win the Super Bowl?

Despite the week 6 loss to Baltimore, we match up pretty well with them and we're pretty even stats-wise on CHFF. Add to that the fact that we're #1 in CHFF's power rankings(that's where GB was ranked last year going into the playoffs), and 3rd in the league, behind GB and NO, in passer differential ratio, I'd say we have a very decent chance to win the Super Bowl. Of course, Baltimore WOULD have to be #2 in the power rankings...
How crazy would Relaint be if it ends up Texans vs. Steelers in Houston?? That would be awesome to see.

Default Re: Do you honestly believe we can win the Super Bowl?

I think would be easier to win the SB against some NFC contender than win against the ravens in their home...

I guess we will see...

No matter how little is the possibility, untill we lose I'll be hoping to achieve the best...

Because that's what you should do, never settle for less then the highest goal achievable

should we win the Superbowl given all of our injuries...... hell no!

That said how can you bet against this team this yr in big games? Time and time again when it mattered they have come through. We SHOULD loose next week as Baltimore is 8-0 in their house and not nearly as banged up as we are but I just can't pick against us when it's time to man up.

This is just BS. Elite QBs don't win SBs, good teams do. Dilfer won a SB. Brad Johnson won a SB. Delhomme GOT to a SB. Rich Gannon got to a SB. Dan Marino got to a SB and never won one.

Roethlisberger is a good QB. Eli Manning is a good QB. Those guys aren't elite. They won SBs because of the teams they were on.

Of all the QBs who played yesterday, TJ was the second highest rated. In other words, he was efficient. And that was even with AJ dropping some passes he normally would have caught. Although he didn't rack up a lot of yards, he got 8 yards per attempt. That means he was stretching the field and not just throwing a bunch of dinks and dunks.

If Yates keeps making the throws he's been making, we have a shot.

If we can make it past Baltimore, I don't see us losing to Pitt or NE (not to say that we couldn't, but I just don't see it). In other words, hell yeah I think we can.

I think we can. When we played Baltimore in the season, the D hadn't gelled quite yet. I think they can get after Flacco's sorry ass! BUT.....I have a feeling that Ravens D will get some big hits on TJ.

Default Re: Do you honestly believe we can win the Super Bowl?

The pertinent question is, "Do the Texans believe they can win the Super Bowl?". I think they are just cocky and naive enough to believe they can. I know they have enough big time players to make any team they face worry.
