That stems from the back-and-forths on here among posters, rather than someone desperately hoping to be proven right (about the negative outcome).

Look, all guys give each other hell all the time about sports stuff. We get attached to our opinions. And we give hell to one another for our differing opinions. So IF a person had a negative view, and that person was being challenged on that negative view, then IF the time comes that the outcome is indeed a negative outcome...the so-called chest thumping is not celebrating the negative outcome, it's instead focused toward the posters who challenged the person on the issue.

In the end, whether we are right or wrong is often times more important to us than whether our prediction was positive or negative in its basic nature. We all want to show that we know what we "see" and that we see things better than the other guy does.

It's just what guys do. THAT is our little section of drama, I suppose.

Imagine that. Despite Gary's annual 3-game losing streak, the team finished 10-6.

That is one thing I would like to change from EVERY year Kubiak has been here.
He's had at least one 3-game losing streak in every season. That is something
that could completely de-rail a season. Last year, it cost us the #1 seed.

Right now I'd say 11-5, but I really have no idea. Things are looking good, but you never really know.

ThaShark is right. People who constantly thump the same exact agenda year-in, year-out NEVER actually hope they're wrong.

Take a look at my sig. You'll see a pattern was broken last year (9-3) and
I was ECSTATIC. I want to see a lot more of what happened in 2011,
minus the 3-game losing streak. Nobody wants to be wrong about Kubiak
more than me.

Go Texans!

If they are right, I have no problem with the chest-thumping. If they have the insight to see something different from the herd, why not?

Still. I see a lot of 11-5 predictions in this thread. A few 12-4s a couple worse.

Six games left in the season, to go 11-5 the Texans would have to lose 4 of the next 6 games. Highly possible with this coaching staff (Kubiak in particular... ok, I'm talking about Kubiak explicitly).

What say you? 11-5?

It's very possible because we have the head coach that will authorized such a record.
I show you what I mean:
On 3rd & long this season, over 90% of plays have either been draws or short safe passes and screens. Plays that is designed to setup punting space, NOT to get first down to extend a drive.
Two words that sum up Gary Kubiak: Safe and content. 'No need to finish the season 15-1. Relax boys. Just take a knee against the Colts game. Oh T.J., go out there, dink and dunk with Forset and Martin.'
That's how I see it. Then when playoffs begin we escape with a victory because our starters were severely rusty from lack of competitive action.
And we'll lose the next game to a team that finished the season strong as opposed to taking a kneel down.

The same head coach that OC'd his way to two superbowl rings?
Yep, that guy. Obviously his strategies don't work, because he only has two superbowl rings.

Though I will say... we should keep our starters in for the Colts game. Crush their hopes of making the playoffs as a wildcard. Crush their dreams.

I hate the Colts.

I think there are only, at most, two regular season loses in our near future. That makes us 13-3 and probably own home field advantage through out the playoffs.

Which is something I would have NEVER said before the season started. The Texans are doing much better this year than I expected them to. I love it, I love it, I love it.

Go Texans!

This comment would have more bite if we weren't 9-1. I understand what you're saying & in a vacuum I think you have a point. But those games ended in wins & most of them weren't even close.

Do you watch other teams? Because this is the norm for most teams as to not risk a turnover and to play the field position aspect of the game.

That TD by Blackmon came on a 3rd and long.
Foster fumbled came on a draw on a third and long.
Two contrast of play calling nearly cost us that game.

yeah difference is we were 8-1 and they were 1-8 what did they have to lose ??? We on the other hand are 9-1 while they are 1-9 so all in all lets just keep doing what we've been doing which has been working.

In OT, with 2:36 left, Jacksonville has the ball with 4th & 10 at the Houston 47. The conservative call would be to punt the ball inside the 20, make Houston drive 60+ yards to get into field goal range within 2:30 to win the game.

Instead, Jax gets aggressive and goes for the win. They don't convert and Houston only needs to gain 20+ yards to get into field goal range. We know what ended up happening.

Alot of times, aggressive play calls don't work and DO cost the game.

Everyone makes a big fuss about Kubiak's conservative play calling, and how many games it may have cost us... but no one mentions how many games it has won for us.

You have to take risks when you're desperate.

If you've got the better team, you play to win. And playing to win, despite what you think, is to play it safe and minimize mistakes. Let the other team make mistakes and take advantage of them.

And that was a short, safe pass that he took to the house because our defense missed tackles.

A.J.'s winning TD came on a short, safe SCREEN pass that he took to the house.

Whut's yer point?
