I didn't realize that winning your Division was "barely making the playoffs"

By that standard, so did the Texans, Broncos, Pats, Niners, Falcons, Washington, Packers......

I knew they could win out and go to the SB...only hitch was Denver which we overcame.

lol! man tell me about it! when the Texans skulled dragged us last season it was horrible! and even when the Broncos blasted us 2 weeks ago in our season opener on MNF, it was horrible! the media quickly threw dirt on and buried my Ravens. not realizing that there are still 15 games to go. since that opening day debacle, the Ravens defense has given up no TDs (i.e. Browns or Texans) but our offense is still playing like garbage right now. you guys play the Seahawks next right? that's a tough one to face after the Ravens but it should be a great test for your squad to see what type of team they will be this season.

good luck!

Really all Harbaugh has added is Kap, Aldon Smith who is now a mental case, Dashon Goldston who walked and a couple backup RBs.

Singletary might have done most of the heavy lifting especially on the OL with Ahmad Brooks, Aubrayo Franklin, Anthony Davis, Iupati, Crabtree, Navarro Bowman.

The Texans, and Houston in general has always been an easy going fan base. We are "OK" going from 2 wins to 6 to above .500 to making the playoffs to advancing in the playoffs to who knows what. Try doing that in a market that expects to compete for SuperBowl or bust. It just doesnt seem like something they would accept.

Yeah, whoever was adding the talent in San Francisco since Mike Nolan was there is the guy who should get most of the credit. Then their Strength & Conditioning guy, because they've been one of the healthier crews in the NFL.

But Harbough should get credit for doing what he did. He took a talented team to the Super Bowl. Our team was just as talented & we lost in the divisional round.

Good. Not Great, Not Elite... Just Good = No Superbowl

Until a change is made in the most critical position on the team....Paper Tiger

Fortunately, they are a good enough team to overcome the pretenders and in the past 2 years, that has equated to becoming the reigning NFL post season paper tiger. IMHO, that comes from a poor Special Teams component and a QB that is good. Not great, not elite.. Just good. I won't get down on Matt. All QB's will make mistakes and have bad games. Tell me the last time you saw a game that made you feel Matt was the reason the Texans won? ie, he carried the team to victory? And if so, who did they play?
