How?

Because we couldn't keep Winston and Brisiel under the salary cap?

Or because Butler got injured and Newton and Caldwell also got injured?

Or is it because we give another first round draft pick to the D?

Not only that, you even blame it all despite the result.

Come on dawg.

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

Seeing all the knocks on Shaub, I'm wondering what has happened.

At the beginning of the year, I thought Matt looked the best he has ever looked, and I'm wondering what happened since those first few games.

Was it the questions of his starter capability and the calls for him to back up Yates coming back from injury that motivated him?

Seems now that those calls have died down, he's back to errant pass, can't find the open man Shaub.

Is it me, or is anyone else seen this dropoff for no apparent reason, with exception to the Jags game, has Shaub really looked that good in the past 6 or so games??

I am not a Schaub fan, but I don't think "he's back to errant pass, can't find the open man Schaub" I do not think that is the norm. This was a bad game. I honestly think Kubiak may have made too big a deal of staying even keel for this game. By the time the offense woke up, it was too late.

I don't believe this offense has worked as well as it had last season. Last season the offense progressed from game one through Matt's last game. But the whole time they were more consistent than what we've seen this year.

Losing Briesel & Winston we pretty much lost our ability to run on anyone, whenever we wanted. We knew that was going to be an issue. With Newton coming back, hopefully we can get closer to being that team & we'll see that offense again.

The Manning we faced in Week 3 is not the same Manning that plays for the Broncos now. I'm not all that confident we could beat them in a rematch here at Reliant, much less on the road like last time.

Anybody remember last year's AFC Championship Game?

Surely I wasn't the only one to watch that mundane looking Patriots team & thought, "We would have kicked their as$ if Matt were healthy."

This thing we're doing now, where we make the Patriots & Brady this unconquerable super team is the same thing we're accusing our players of. Being star struck by the great Tom Brady.

They've been beat three times this year, they will get beat again, might as well be us beating him.

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

Posey gave me some hope and Keyshawn Martin remained solid as a returner. Most importantly Newton was back and should be back on keel next week. Cody made me shake my head but Mitchell did have one very good play. I still need a Nose and MLB. Manning and Quin seemed to make a good play then swap it for a bad one. Joseph did not get beat that I saw and hope to see him getting stronger each game. Schaub seemed more on target with the ball & not in panic mode. Barwin had one good play and then QB ran into him for a sack. I may have seen Luck take a $100 bill from Connor as he got up.

Wasn't happy with several of plays Phillips and Kubes called. Another week to get healthier.

My contention even at the beginning of the season has always been that we dont have one. The o-line will hold us back on the offensive side and the undiscipline play at times will be a problem on the defensive side.

I agree. If we have to play them in the playoffs, we'd better have more than just Watt in his face, or it's done.

Manning's record in the playoffs isn't as good as Brady's. Either way, we'll end up facing one of them in the playoffs.

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

We have Newton and Graham back.
Jones and Brook will have more experience.

Posey is showing some flashes.
Tate is finally healthy.
Our depth is good.

We will get Reed back.
JJo seems to get healthier.
He'll get some rest before the play-offs.
McCain looks to be on schedule to return.
Our depth at CB will be increased with Routt knowing more of the play book.

We're in pretty good shape for the play-off run.

I'm loving what I see from Brandon Harris. He played pretty clean today, except for that hold on Reggie Wayne. I don't know if it was a bone-head play that worked out for us, or if he was smart enough to take the penalty than give up an even bigger play.

But he's physical, I love it. Fast, I love it. & plays something like glue, I love it.

The Texans will get to the Super Bowl this year provided they sent the payment for the tickets in on time.
