Against Balitmore, not so much. The pick 6 was like a shot to the gut, the punt returned for a TD, a hard right cross. The TD to open the half was like an upper cut. The first field goal in the 4th qtr... another body shot, the final field goal landed right on our chin.

We never really "gave up" but the fight was pretty one sided after half time.

Same thing happened in the divisional round vs New England. We're keeping our hands up (playing defense) but we've got to throw a few punches (offense) of our own.

So since "everyone" expects us to lose, it's no big deal right?

If we get blown out, we shouldn't see the Schaub, Kubiak, Marciano hate threads right?

Our expectations are so low we shouldn't be upset with an 8-8 season.

I have to tell you guys, over at Seahawks.net we're not nearly as confident in our team blowing your team out as you guys seem to be. Most of us are expecting a hard fought, defensive battle.

Hopefully it will be a good one, regardless of the outcome. Either way I'll be back Sunday night to say "good game". You guys have the classiest, most welcoming fans of any other opposing board I've visited so far. Cheers to you all!

I know. It's embarrasing.

It's more about how they feel about our team than yours. Think back to when Seneca Wallace was your starting QB... that's the kind of confidence some of us have in Schaub, then half of us never liked Kubiak & he soured on the other half.

It's going to be ugly. We don't have a 12th man, but damn near. You're not walking out of Reliant with a victory, if you're walking out at all.

We may not be surprised, but we would still be upset.

4-1 over the last 5 road games is a lot better than most teams.

Fact is we are still in an offensive slump since last year, we are basically 5-5 since it started, and every game is brutal to watch offensively. So it's a concern for a lot of us.

Upon further consideration I think the score will be: Seahawks 100-Texans -3. Why -3 you ask? The Texans special team is so incompetent that I think we'll kick a field goal in our end netting us negative points.

Fact is that we're another team than the one that finished last season. A lot of the same players, a lot of the same problems, but a new team. These guys aren't 12-4 or 5-5 or any of that. They're 2-1 with a lot of issues to work out. Some of their plans didn't work out; Q, Brennan, Montgomery...... some aren't working as well as they had hoped; Reed, Newton, Reed, Foster

But there isn't a team in the league that is 100% perfect. Not now, not in week 16 & not Super Bowl week. There are other teams that appear to be handling their issues better than we are. There are other teams that appear to be handling their issues worse than we are.

I'd love to be one of those teams handling ourselves well, I'm upset that we aren't. As long as we've had this staff & this "system" you'd think we would. As much as we talk about our leadership... especially player leaders, we shouldn't be having these problems.
