San Diego peaked at the right time. Also keep in mind that we don't encounter years that often where a team with an 8-8 record gets into the playoffs. Just ask the '09 Texans about that one.

Very true. It was very odd this year watching teams with better records have to play away in the playoffs. Oh well thats the NFL for ya, now a days the division winners arent always the best teams.

It was week 1, well before the entire team gave up on Kubiak.

It was when our crappy team was healthiest and featured big plays by players like Cushing, Foster and OD who were on IR at the halfway mark of the season.

The same way we "beat" Seattle... had Schaub not thrown that pick 6 at the end of the game to send it into overtime. Remember...?

It's the NFL. Anybody can beat anybody. It's not like the Chargers were 15-1 either. They finished 9-7, which is mediocre, which is where 90% of the NFL is today.

In most cases, there's a very fine line between winning and losing.

We lost a lot of games that we should have and could have won. Our record was 2-14 and that's what we were but 2-14 isn't all that far removed from 8-8.

Schaub hadn't fallen apart yet. He threw for 350 yards and 3 TDs. If he kept playing like that, this was still a playoff team.

You're not going anywhere without a QB in today's passing oriented NFL, so the season pretty much died with Schaub's confidence.

We just didn't know yet that he already fell apart. Do you remember the start to the game on offense? A pick by Schaub that was nearly a pick-6. And it looked just like the rest of the pick-6's in the following games.

I thought of this clip when I saw your title. I've thought this about the Texans many, many times.

Yep...just think if we would have won the Seattle game, first Colts game, the KC game...it could be the difference between 2-14 and 10-6

The confidence from winning those three games (which were all barely lost) could have been huge. The team was in every game and then just seemingly said F it.
