It is possible surely but highly unlikely. It would be something similar to what Kaepernick did (although he didn't have to dig his team out of a hole) or what RG3 did when he dug his team out of a hole. He'd have to have a MVP season.

A great QB can have that much effect. That's why I don't think there is any chance Kubes starts Schaub, Keenum the unknown is the only chance this team has now. Him being a QB and making up for the teams poor Oline and inconsistent defense is the only way.

I hadn't been on the site all day and saw this thread and forgot it had been around for a couple of days, and forgot what it was about.

When I saw it I thought "you're damn right we're not out of it it yet,we have 9 more games to suffer through until the end of this travesty, man that's a lot of crappy football".

I hope for the best but plan for the worst for 2013.......

Disagree.
Why would the Marketing Dept. pass up an excellent chance to sell a boatload of Keenum jerseys??

It ain't like they're gonna sell many more Schaub jerseys.

i just made me sad


LOL... the river is starting to flow. It does look bleak. Even for a wild card, we're likely only going to be able to get away with two more loss at most. And none of those should come from the division if we are to have a shot. If we can't beat the Jags, heaven help us. Tennessee has to be over come by division and overall. In either scenario, it's looking for SURE that the week 9 Indy game is where the fulcrum lies in terms of what's already a long shot.

Week 9's outcome will be either a launch pad of the most improbable come back in the NFL for eons, or where you can absolutely put a fork in the team.

I'll be absolutely shocked to see a W given the current state of dissaray, but
I've held out this long, so... I gotta see it through week 9. Go Texans!

There's a huge difference between hoping for a win and expecting a win, or even a decent game. I'm always hoping for a win, but usually expecting something else. But for the Indy game on Sunday night, that would be just frigging fantastic to beat the Dolts and Luck in front of everyone.

If the Texans can give the same effort they showed at Kansas City I'm confident they'll beat the Colts on November 3. I thought they played hard for a full 60 minutes for the first time this season.

That would be two weeks for Arian Foster and Ben Tate to be healthy again. All we really lacked against the Chiefs was a run game. We barely lost 17-16 on the road against an undefeated team.

One game at a time is all I'm focusing on. So that November 3 Sunday Night game is going to be huge. Pretty much our season on the line. It's a must-win game. If we lose that one then you can say the season is over.

It's not unreasonable to think the Texans can win the next 4.

Lose to NE

Then win the 4 after that.

It's only 10-6, but we'd be going into the play-offs with more momentum than we did last year.

If we could beat Indy, I like our chances with NE. No wilfork, no Mayo and issues with receiving talent... IMHO, Indy is the bigger challenge.

I agree with Thorn. At this point, it's all about hopeful.

One game at a time. I've never said it before, but read it many times... November 3 is the biggest game in franchise history!

What if the Colts can give the same effort they showed at Denver? At this point it isn't all about the Texans and their effort. There are many teams in the league that are better than the 2-5 Texans.

Can the Texans win? Sure. Do the Colts have any say in the result? Yes they do. Given the way they have both played this year I'd be hard pressed to be "confident" of a Texans win even if they play well. The Colts are a better team.
