My expectation going into this season was an AFC Championship appearance. That has not changed.

While it is true that Dalton isn't an elite QB, a large margin of victory would definitely make me feel better about the offense. Seeing that Houston can stop having drive ending penalties, score TDs instead of field goals and win a game would have me a lot more confident going into Foxborough.

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.
Disagree. We are a better team than the Bengals. No question about it in my mind. Are we playing better than the Bengals? Of course not, but we are a better team.

But I do agree that they are a good team. I just happen to believe that with the talent we have on both sides of the ball, we SHOULD beat them. That doesn't mean we will.

Nothing. If they win, it's just a game they should have won. Win in Foxboro, then you've got something.

Win or lose (notice the spelling of lose), I will not feel any different. If they win at New England the following week, Then I will feel good about this team.

Even if we beat NE I still wouldn't feel that good because this was the season we get to the SB. If we beat NE and lose in the conference game this will still be a setback season for us. Until we get to the SB I will feel better.

Exactly! A win against the Bengals means nothing if they get clobbered in New England.

At this point, a competitive game against the Pats.

This means.

+Win against the Bengals
+Have a shot at the Pats. Meaning that it's a close game up into the 4th qtr. A big 4th qtr play determines the game.

They meet this and I would have considered it a successful season.

Obviously a win against the Bengals comes first but to feel better about the team and season this year would require a win against the Pats and appearance in the AFC Championship game.

Short of that, this season was a failure IMO.

I'm not gonna shake weight all over myself about 12-4....this isn't an expansion franchise anymore.

All that said, I'll be ready and amped for Saturday I'm sure, but not like I was last year and not like I thought I would be this year.

Sorry, I had you confused with those people who think our QB sucks, our defense is one dimensional, & our coach is in over his head.

My bad, it's just difficult keeping who's who & their positions straight on this board.
