hope we come back strong in 2014.
Just one point I wanted to make- Tate can do whatever but we can't trade him or get anything for him since he's going to be a UFA after this season. Agree with the rest though, maybe not on the Clowney part but the rest is good.

..... and we're right back to being the joke of the week. Nice. The Colts HC has life threatening condition and they become a united, sharp-edged weapon of football destruction. Our HC who is supposedly universally loved collapses at the half and the Texans can't even hold on to an 18 point lead over a team they've owned all night to try and win one for their coach.

Well, we have yet to give Kubes the opportunity to make his heartfelt speech to his team such as Pagano did; but yeah...

Any more victories are counter productive. We must get a top 5 pick, and then become hyper aggressive on draft day by acquiring an extra first.

Although I have lots of admiration for the Colts tenacity and "luck", and I absolutely despise the Tacks, just because they deserve despicability....we can play the Spoiler.

Depending on how the rest of our divisional two-team race develops (Tennessee and Indianapolis), we could really put the hurt on their hopes just by making a win over us very difficult. Put the scare in them, hell...just beat 'em...in their own "house"!

We have another game with the Titans and Colts away, one game with Denver and another with New England here at home. We can have fun with this.

This should teach 'em since they'll be playing us lightly - with all the devastation we have experienced this season!
I'm positive that I don't agree with that definition of success....

It's two-fold...we win our remaining games and ruin others' chances of: Home field advantage, wild card spots, maybe division titles and so on. Indy put it on us last year when all we needed was one game to get the bye.

Winning our remaining games while playing the spoiler is not "success"?

You weren't that hard on Keenum; but it doesn't matter one way or another.

People has the right to be doubtful about players; it only serves as humors for me though.

I never bought into the pre-season hype, but I will admit "Super Bowl or Bust" had a nicer ring to it than "Keep the Titans out of the Playoffs".

That might just be me though.

It's easy to mistake one poster from the next.
It's also a good idea to make sure Alzheimer doesn't set in; heck, I have to double check myself at times, LOL.

Mathematically, yes, but you have nothing to base that on.

Our HC is done for the season.
Our pro-bowl QB cracked.
Our backup QB cant play 60 minutes of football.
Our QB on defense is on IR.
Our 2nd year kicker cant find his accuracy through 8 games.
Our pro bowl punter punts 19 yards in crucial Colts game.
Our pro bowl RB is giving us 2 plays and then an early exit.
Our special teams coverage is not so special.
Our punt/kick returner is no threat to return it. In fact hes more inclined to turn the ball over.

Where is all this positive energy coming from?

It will be a HUGE success of a season imo if we have found our QB of the future in Keenum. However, I am keeping my expectations low for a while as this is the NFL we are talking about here.

Just going to enjoy watching him and see how he handles future defenses and the adjustments they start making, etc. But boy, what a load off if the dude turns out to be pretty special.

Now is the time to throw (no pun intended) it all out there...we have nothing to lose.
