Default Re: We Can Still Succeed This Season....

meh....we're Houston NFL fans. We should be used to disaster.

NOT

But like all masochistic NFL fans in Houston, I'll keep watching and take my medicine.

Default Re: We Can Still Succeed This Season....

I'm watching for these reasons in order of importance:

1. To see Case Keenum play/progress - his vertical game to AJ!!!!!
2. To see how the team responds to injured players, Kube's health condition, and having a new (interim) coach in Wade.
3. To see JJ Watt and the rest of the D play
4. To play spoiler
5. To have a chance of shocking the world by "winning-out" and making the playoffs.....
6. Cheerleaders
7. To enjoy seeing Matt Schaub on the sidelines where he belongs
8. To see if Arian Foster is going to Man up and play
9. To see if Bullock still looks hungry and lost after he misses a field goal.
10. To watch all the anti-Keenum posters down play his success

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

Absolutely not. In fact, if we beat everyone we don't spoil anything. If we beat NE, Denver, and Indy then all the home field advantage etc remains the same, just one game lower. And Oakland and Jacksonville aren't playoff contenders anyway. The only way we can spoil their season is to lose to them and steal their draft position.

Yes - I know The Onion is satire. Sometimes painful satire. But funny.
Even in our best years, we were still hated. The only positive news were getting is over Kubiak and Keenum
