Default Re: This team's in trouble

Good post GP...I think it sums up the current situation well.

I just don't see a SB team when I watch the Texans. Kubiak greatly shortened our window with his bad defensive hires prior to Wade being forced on him and I'm starting to worry that this year isn't going to be our year either due to all the injuries. You could make the argument that next year could be golden if our offensive line play finally recovers from losing two starters after 2011 and our young receivers develop...but we also need our cowardly lion coach to grow a heart...

JJ Watt picks up everybody's dirty laundry. It makes me sick.

He's nothing short of super human on so many levels.

And this team, specifically its head coach, relies on him exclusively to put his offense into good position. Over and over.

Sigh, I gotta' sign off. Giving our two cats away to a horse trainer who needs barn cats. And I've been dying to unload these cats for 12 years. And today is the day. No more cat **** in my garage, no more cat puke in my garage. No more hair balls, no more hair ball-shaped **** in my garage. No more feeding them. No more hearing them mee-oww for food every second of my day around here. So I gotta go. Or I'd stay and chat.

I just know how this story ends, it ends with a nice 13-3 record and losing to the Pats in the AFCC game at Foxborough. Hope it doesn't, but it sure seems that's the way it's headed.

I think we lose 1 of our last 2 games. Gotta go. Good chatting with ya, btw.

Well, you're going to get a crown of thorns for thinking that way.

After a win, nobody is allowed to state weaknesses or say they're not confident in our team. Prepare to be scourged.

I'm not saying there are not valid concerns - however, if this team were 2-12, with wins over NE and GB, would you be happy?

I mean - I want them to get HFA, get on a hot streak, rise to the occasion, silence the doubters and go deep, DEEP in the playoffs. Will they do it? Perhaps. Could they fail? yes. Could they fail big, possibly. I however will enjoy their wins and their record and hope for the best. That's right, HOPE, I said it...HOPE. What else can we do.

If I could go to the future HOF QB store and the bad ass back up QB store, believe me I would.

I'll have to admit that I expect more from the other defenders considering how dominant Watt is but it was nice to see Barwin make a few plays today and for the most part I have no issues with Smith.

I'm starting to think Reed may have lost the top dog position in the rotation though...Mercilus seems to be getting more pressure.

Before the game a lot of people were saying the colts weren't good. They were lucky to be where they were. They were saying that they really should be a 5 win team or so.

Now when they come in here and battle us tough, it was a good win against a quality play off team.

Im judging this team hard because I don't believe our superbowl window will be open for a long time because we dint have an elite qb.

Elite qb's keep their teams in superbowl contention. Andrew luck looks like he can develop into that kind of guy.

We need to make this happen.

We're all happy for 12-2. That doesn't stop some of us from analyzing what we see as problems with the team. So here's an open question to the Sunshine Club:

What did the Texans do today to convince you that the Patriots game was a fluke?

Or the recent OT wins against the (4-9) Lions and the (2-12) Jags?

Don't get me wrong. This is a good team, and I like how it finds ways to finish games that it used to lose. But it hasn't looked elite at all in recent weeks and it concerns me.

Nope but each matchup is different.

With that said I don't think the pats are THAT much better.


I guess the pats and colts game was a flick too

The way I see it (or would like to see it) is we win out, getting home field advantage. In our first game we'll play the winner of the Baltimore/whoever wild card game. We'll win that one.

Then either New England or Denver comes to town. That one is going to be hell, but since it's at home, it's more winnable that either going to Denver or New England and playing there. I feel pretty confident about making it to the AFC championship game. Getting past Manning to Brady to make it to the Super Bowl is another question.

And I'd rather play the pats than the broncos...broncos remember what we did to them and....well I hope we remember what the pats did to us
