This would definitely make me feel better. To make me truly happy, though? Following that up by going to Foxborough and getting some much needed revenge on Brady.

I want a win where the team comes out and establishes the running game at a good clip (4+ YPC). I want a win where the QB doesn't come out sleepwalking and wearing concrete cleats. I want a win where the defense doesn't surrender a high percentage of 3rd down conversions like they have been. I want a win where the team converts in the red zone instead of driving for FGs.

In short, I want a win that will make me believe they have a chance against the Patriots.
This.

Simply winning won't do it for me. We SHOULD beat the Bengals. Winning is simply doing what we should do against an inferior team. I want to see a blowout. I want to see Schaub rack up 300+ yards and 2 TDs, Arian with over 100 and a TD or two, and a solid defensive effort with at least 1 turnover.

Is that too much to ask? If so, I'm not sure when I will have faith in this team again.

Today's NFL is all about the QB...

time to get a quality backup who fits the new mold in size/arm strength/leadership. (And yes, I'm still chirping about Cousins.)

Why? What is the point of being a fan if you accept this?

It's time to win. Just shut up and win.

Until they do that I'd rather not see the Segways, Jackets, and nicknames for the defense. I've got a nickname for them. "Guys that haven't won anything yet".

Not real catchy but it describes them perfectly.

Agree, a "good showing" against the Patsies? It's the playoffs!(note the name)

Win and in, lose and leave.

Good showings aren't any better than a blowout loss.

1. a win
2. stop getting dumb drive killing penalties
3. oline block someone
4. tds instead of fgs
5. d stop giving up the big play

If all of those things happen then I feel confident that we won't be embarrassed like the last time we went to foxborough

What will it take for me to feel better about this team?

Probably a quaalude chased with a 7&7.

But then again, everything tends to be pretty cool at that point.

I'm so severely pissed right now, STILL, that I could give a rat's ass about this game. In fact, they will have done us a bigger disservice by winning and then cratering in Foxborough next week. They're delaying our "moving on" moment.

I'm serious, too. No hyperbole. 112 days until the next meaningful Texans event.

lol! at the nickname.

Since they seem to like a song to go with their nicknames, I nominate "Nowhere Man" by the Beatles:

He's a real nowhere man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.

Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Nowhere Man please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere Man,the world is at your command!

He's as blind as he can be,
Just sees what he wants to see,
Nowhere Man can you see me at all?

They have to beat the Patriots in Foxborough.
Otherwise, we're on to talking about what they have to do next year.

Not often I agree with you GP, but I'm with you 100% on this one. I don't want to even watch the game, but the wife just told me she'll be pissed if I don't watch it with her.

There's nothing that's going to make me believe we have a chance against the Patriots. I did not see that coming. They've got the twenty something ranked defense & we could barely move the ball. Up until then, we had issues. But nothing like that.

Nothing.

I'm already feeling good about our team, so I don't really need to see anything in particular Saturday.

I'm expecting a win.

We're in the exact same spot as they are. They got to the play-offs as a wild card last year. They're a Wild Card again. They'll be trying to prove that they deserve to move on, that they've improved since last year.

I know this is Houston & we don't care about the other team, but they earned their way in.

No such thing as "SHOULD" in the play-offs.
