Everything happening the way it is, the team is catching no breaks, it's a lot like 2010.

Keenum can win us some games, but it's hard to do that when your defense sucks, you O-Line sucks, and of course, the entire Moral is down.

I think we finish this season at 6-10. At least Keenum is a good reason to watch now.

Indy just returned a punt turnover (Trindon fumbled on a return) for a TD. The ball luckily stays in bounds...

Seems they get all the lucky breaks, if that was us that ball bounces out of bounds and Manning throws a bomb for a TD.

With Cushing done for the year we are definitely out of it. That's like the forty foot tall exclamation point on top of the whole mess.

The point of playing the game is to win the superbowl. We have zero chance. Who cares if we make the playoffs at this point?

Every year there are 31 losers. We have already cemented our place among them.

But it's absolutely ridiculous how the Colts defense is answering the challenge right now.

I vote for the collapse...we have talent and could rebound quickly if we dump Kubiak.
If there's enough evidence to dump Kubiak right now, what difference does it make what happens the rest of the season? If you feel like he should be fired, fire him at the end of the season. Even if we win a Super Bowl.

If we have to tank the rest of the season to get rid of Kubiak, then McNair is not doing his job.

I think Colts D is much better at LB and secondary.
If Luck stays healthy our playoff hopes are slim.

What hope is there? This was a disaster of a game. It gave the team five losses, it stripped us of our star, potentially HOF linebacker for the second straight year, and exposed the NFL for being a fraudulent, hypocritical, bull**** league.

This team is DONE this year.

McNair finally spoke to the media and he is already cranking up the injury excuse.

The bad news is there is one team in the AFC with a worse record than the Texans. The good news is there are three teams in the NFC with worse records.

The Texans have the fifth worst record in the league. Call me a sky-is-falling type, but I think this 2-5 team is not playing well and in major disarray and trouble.

The homers will be able to make posts of increasingly outlandish scenarios for a few more weeks to "prove" that the Texans will make the playoffs, and then the team will be mathematically eliminated. I just don't see how a serious football analysis of the first seven games of the season can lead to a reasonable conclusion that the team will close out with an 7-2 or 8-1 run to finish with nine or ten wins and make the playoffs.

That's like a person who jumps off a 50 story building thinking around the 25th floor : "at least I' m not dead yet".

Even if we win out and make the playoffs - we can't possibly win the super bowl

Meh, I see no reason to attack anyone for believing if not for one more week until the team is officially out of it. What's so wrong with that?

Oh yeah definitely. I think the hope ends tonight even for the most optimistic of guys if the Colts can hold out and win this game...there would still be a SLIM chance. It would mean basically that Luck gets hurt or if Keenum is insanely good.

They can really only lose one game from here on out...and they play the Colts twice, the Pats, and the Broncos.

8-8 is what I'm predicting, which isn't good enough for a wildcard in the AFC this year.

There is a chance for a run. Schedule gets a little weaker after the Colts. Hardest games will be the Broncos and Patriots. Keenum was put in just a week too late because I think we would have beat the Rams with Keenum. The spark should have started then.
