Just enjoy the ride right now. This team is clearly capable of winning the Super Bowl, whether it will or not will depend on a crazy number of variables outside anyones control. When teams have gone 17-0 and lost the Super Bowl we know the best team doesn't always win.

Said it before on other threads and will say it again.

Stay healthy. Then the answer is yes. You will need homefield though. No trips to Foxborough or Baltimore in January. It rarely works out as history has shown.

Well, now that we just just got our asses kicked six ways to Sunday in prime time, I figure this would be a prime time to bump this up.

Still think we have a Super Bowl team?

I never thought I'd ever say this. I used to get pissed at people for saying, "it's not so much that we lost it, it's HOW we lost it."

Well, if this isn't a classic case of 'HOW we lost it' I don't know what is.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

We're still a contender. Easily.

The Giants look like the league's best-built team, though. They have experience at how to approach each week, how to get there and get it done. Everybody wrote them off in week 1 when they lost to the Cowboys. Oops.

We're going to win the division. Remains to be seen if we can lock up the first round bye, but yet I still think we will. I see us as maybe a 12-4 team at best or an 11-5 at worst.

We've got 10 games left to play, we need to win 7 out of 10 to go 12-4......or win 6 out of 10 to go 11-5. I like those odds, frankly. Then it depends on the records of the other AFC divisional champs in determining seeding for other stuff.

Ravens and Pats are easily the biggest threats to us.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

This is a playoff team, because our division is so weak. But no, it's not a Super bowl team. This team will go no further in 2012 than it did in 2011.

Playoffs are high pressure, high visibility games. Not the Texans' strength.

Green Bay was the game that many of us expected to be the first test in a stretch run against some very good QBs. Not a good start.

Luckily we're in the AFC. I really don't see any threat from the AFC except for the patriots. The ravens aren't the same anymore. I see us maybe finishing 1st or 2nd in the AFC.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

There is a 6-0 team, then there are two 5-1 teams that play each other this coming Sunday, and then everyone else has 4 wins or less. Yeah, we're a contender. We were a contender last year when a 9-7 team won the super bowl.

There's always a chance unless you just suck like a black hole, which the Texans are finally not doing.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

Making the post season is all that really matters, I could give a darn about a perfect record unless the team is just that good which obviously this one is not. The Giants barely made the playoffs last year, but they went all the way winning the Superbowl. This was most disturbing not that we lost to the Packers but how we lost. Seemed like Texans lost all the progress they've worked so hard to improve on past four years, flashing back to 2005-06. OL looks bad, defense looks lost without Cushing, special teams continued its downward spiral, although Keshawn Martin was a bright spot returning kicks in his first NFL game. So even though it's only 6 games, Texans could turn it back around you just never know but in such a big game, nationally televised, full house the Texans sure didn't look like a Superbowl team.

Yep

This is also the 1st game they have faced an elite QB.

It doesn't bode well for the playoffs.

This game you had one team fighting for its playoff lives and another team that started to believe the hype. Hopefully this will be a wakeup call for Gary and the guys.

Ravens fan here ... obviously ...

I most certainly think the Texans have a Super Bowl caliber team. I don't think that's even debatable, even with the loss last night.

As long as you guys stay healthy, I have a feeling y'all will be in the AFCCG with no problems.

IMO, last years team was better. I think last year was our best chance at reaching the SB. Injuries ruined that season

Yes. One loss doesn't destroy an entire season. The Giants were gettin their butts kicked and were written off by EVERYONE but their fans when they clowned Tom Brady and ruined his "perfect season."

While I agree that last years team was better, due to issues with teams like Ravens, Pats, Steelers our chances are better barring more significant injuries. I think it all depends on how we play going into the playoffs and less on how we play in week 6.

If we have a couple down weeks and still manage to pull off enough wins, then get hot before the post season I will like our chances.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

Never really bought much into the SB hype of this team to begin with. Too many things have to go right for that to happen. maybe enough to make it there...but were not ready to win it....yet.

Some cracks in the armour of this team were exposed last night.

For instance, If it ain't Watt making the play on the front four, we're going to struggle. Teams aren't fearing Barwin or Reed on the edge.

Teams are willing to wager their guys winning the 1 on 1 match ups against our secondary...& they are winning them.

I think our maturity showed last night as well. Stupid penalty after stupid penalty kept drives alive for the Packers....the spotlight burned them to a crisp.

& I can't make up my mind whether or not AJ is just trying to take it as easy as possible so as to not miss any games............or him falling over the hill over night b/c he clearly doesn't look like the same guy...not even from last year.

The Texans certainly can be a SB team.

But I am still trying to figure out if my friend was right when he called the Texans "The Boise State" of the NFL. Dominating a joke of a division, getting wins against pretty good teams, then blowing it against elite talent

Your friend is silly. Boise State got on the map by beating those "elite" teams in prime time games (OU, Oregon, Georgia).

Furthermore, there are only really about 3 elite teams in the NFL in any given year...most teams never play all 3 so if he's saying that about us, he's gotta say it about almost every team in the NFL.

Indy dominated a joke of a division for 10 plus years and noone had a problem with it. The same for NE. Now all of a sudden b/c were taking advantage of it, its a problem.
