They have a team with leaders and a coaching staff that's working in the 21st century. They're going forward, we're standing still.

It sucks to be 2-5 and not playing again for two weeks. Losing Brian Cushing is tough but a lot of teams are losing good players for the season. Good teams find a way to overcome any obstacle. I thought we played our hearts out yesterday. I want to see more of that effort moving forward this season.

Hindsight is 20-20 but I wish we would have went with Case Keenum a little earlier. Like before the Seahawks game. We may have won those games against the Seahawks and Rams. But oh well, can't look in the past. Just have to focus on the rest of 2013.

I'm not a fan of Dumb & Dumber optimism (no offense to anyone grasping at the Cliff of Hope by the edges of their fingers...)



Anything is possible. But you have to set up expectations with what is probable.

And as a lifelong fan of the NFL, teams that start 2-5 with really crappy play and lose multiple superstars to injuries, I don't need a Magic 8 Ball to tell me what I already know.

The Texans are still alive, but so is Abe Vigoda and he won't be in the playoffs either. I'm behind the guys 100% but I have a better chance of:

a. Winning 5 Mega-Million Lotteries in 5 states SIMULTANEOUSLY

b. Having an orgy with Sofia Vergara, Helen Miren, Brenda Song & that chick from the "Nalin' Palin" video.

c. Being struck by lightening 3 times in a span of 5 minutes.

d. Being photographed with Bill wearing MATCHING Dallas Cowboy Jerseys

e. Getting Red_Zone & Corrosion to declare Obama the "Best President ever!"

f. Getting IlliniJen to endorse Ted Cruz for President.

g. ALL of the above occurring...not only once but twice.

than the Texans have of making the playoffs this year without Tickets.

Technically the Jags arent out of it. But if you feel like the Texans arent done then we will just have to agree to disagree. Ive seen nothing from this team that tells me they will get it together with the collection of players and coaches we have.

Default Re: We arent out of it yet...

No, technically and mathematically they aren't out of it. But they're now 3 games behind the Colts, and though they are only 2 games out of the 2nd wild card, there's TEN teams in front of them. They've got to go 7-2 just to win 9 and that may not be enough. That includes games with Indy (twice), Denver, and New England. If you don't at least split those 4 games and sweep the rest, it ain't happening. And that's with questions marks all over the place including QB, the health of your RB's, RT, ILB, Safeties, just to name a few.

Default Re: We arent out of it yet...

If the Texans were ever to go 15-1 in a season you can be guaranteed that the one loss occurred @ Indy..........and the sad thing is that particular game hasn't even happened yet.

If the Texans somehow turn it around from here and make it into the playoffs despite everything that has gone wrong the Texans will NOT lose again until after they have won the Lombardi trophy.

File this under "extremely unlikely".

This is as hopeful as I can be now.

Default Re: We arent out of it yet...

KC or Denver is pretty much guaranteed the 1st wild card spot. That means we're in a fight with San Diego, NY Jets, Baltimore, Tennessee, and Miami for the 6th spot. We're currently 2 games back from SD.

With Cushing out, I don't think we can do it. You're looking at a 9-7 team taking that last spot and we're 2-5. I don't see 7 wins left on the schedule. We still have to play Indy twice, New England, Denver, and at Tennessee. I see a 6-7 win season.

I'd trade my whole draft for that guy. Well, if we can get Schaub to sack the other QB, intercept passes & force fumbles... we're half way there.

Default Re: We arent out of it yet...

The following have to happen to win the division:

1) We sweep the division
2) We drop no more than two more games
3) Titans/Colts have to split OR Titans win both
4) Indy has to drop 2 more games outside of the above (or at least one if Titans sweep)
5) Titans have to drop 2 more games outside of the above

We'd only win due to a head-to-head tiebreaker.

Nothing I have written seems plausible, save for maybe the Titans losing a bunch.

It's over folks. Mathematically, smathematically.

Its mathematically impossible for me or RZ to make that statement ... much less both of us. Never happen .... ever.


The Texans at least are still alive mathematically .... however slim.

I like that Bob brought a Houston guy in to lead this team, & I like that Wade is basically a Houston guy & I like that Kubiak began bringing Houston guys in, in the last couple of years, & I like that our future QB may very well be a Houston guy....

I mean I know we watch them on TV & that generates the money that affords them lavish lifestyles we can only dream about & that should be enough for them to nut up & go win a Super Bowl.

& I don't have a problem with criticizing the team. It does not mean in any way that you're not a true fan or that the sunshine pumper is in any way a better fan than you are.


Nothing against you Hervoyel, Just replying to what you're saying the Colts have, that we don't. I know it's a chicken & egg and all, but can you imagine what this team can do if this city "really" got behind the Texans? Not just Keenum, not just Watt, or Andre, but really get behind the Texans.

With everything happing right now, I think it would take a miracle of Biblical proportions to make the playoffs. I don't see it. Sure, it's still mathematically possible. So is a UFO landing outside my apartment right now.
