Re: Cincinnati Bengals @ Houston Texans. 1/5. 3:30. **Official Wildcard GameDay Threa
Stop acting like me questioning this team's own resolve is akin to ME waving a white flag. I mean, seriously. LOL. Wow.
You're sounding like a chest-thumping Kool Aid drinking fan right there in that post. "We're a playoff team!" and "Go be a Cowboys fan."
Serious Full-Blown Homer right there. All I did was ask for definite reasons why OUR team has given you reason to believe in it in THIS upcoming game. I asked for you to not do the "Any Given Sunday" bull**** knee-jerk cliche remark, and you couldn't resist the urge. It's all you had.
Basically, your entire post is this idea that (A) We're in the playoffs "whether GP likes it or not" which is just utter rubbish, btw, of course I want us to be in the playoffs, and (B) An underdog can find a way to beat Goliath.
That's it. That's all you had. Chest thumping.
We're going to find out in about 24 hours from now if Gary and Wade did any REAL work this week or if it'll be Business As Usual for both sides of the ball vs. the Patriots. I don't have faith in Gary that he has drawn up a better, different game plan this time around.
His motto is: We are good enough that IF we play our own game, nobody can stop us. And if a team lines up across from us, balls up its fist, and then rams that fist into our team's face...we curl up into the fetal position and cry for mommy.
It's like Obsi said a few posts ago: We are so caught up in how we're a 2-time playoff team that we don't even understand that we're facing a Patriots team who has basically never known anything BUT playoff games and AFCC games for the entire stretch of the Texans' existence. Can we beat them? Sure. But that's not really engaging in actual football talk...that's just going all Rudy and The Blind Side and Miracle On Ice on the topic. Rah, rah, rah!...Oh ****, we get our faces caved in. How did THAT happen?
It happened because one team has been there, knows how to handle this stuff, and the other team is just now feeling its way through the playoff process. Our team looked apologetic in the final two games of the season. "Ya' know, we're good. We own the AFC South. Here, here's Home Field Advantage. I mean, it would be unsportsmanlike for us to get a bye and play a divisional round at Reliant. Well, best of luck to everyone!"
