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

I just feel like losing Cushing is a bigger blow than we can overcome when we are already 2-5 & Indy is ballin'. My opinion, the rest of this season is about whether Keenum is next year's starter, or somebody else that is not on this team yet. In that vein, I'll just say that I will no longer get upset about losses as long as Keenum is not the reason for them. We don't totally suck, but this season is toast.

BTW, if Schaub starts one more time, unless it is because Keenum has had plenty of opportunity and completely blown it, I join the fire Kubiak crowd.

Since TKyss phrased it this way, I'll just continue - I do not think it's not unreasonable (HA! Triple negative!) to beat the Colts. It's unreasonable to think they will, actually. Hope springs eternal, of course, and I have more of that now than I did two weeks ago, but the Colts are for real, despite TKyss' refusal to acknowledge Luck's mastery of the position.

I do not deny that the Colts are for real... in fact they look more like the Super Bowl Patriots than the Bradies.... y'know, when their QB was clutch as hell, but his biggest contribution to the team was not screwing up.

Yes, Tom Brady turned into a great QB, but very little from that time pointed to him becoming such.

yep.

Unreasonable is defined as "not guided by or based on good sense".

And while I never want to rain on anyone's parade, the reality is that the Texans are playing like a 2-5 team right now. Add to this the very significant injuries involved, and the probability that the 2013 Texans can somehow rise above themselves to only lose one more game this season is about as improbable as it gets.

I would love for it to happen, of course. I'm not rooting for them to tank to get a high pick and lose Kubiak (although I would see those as silver linings to an abysmal season). But, I'm a very pragmatic person and the reality is that this year's version of the Texans sucks about as bad as the 2005 version.

I'm not denying any of that.

There are some pretty big ifs in my hope. & that's all it is right now, unfounded hope. Not a prediction, not a guarantee.

Unfounded, fanatical hope.

There are a couple of things I'm still hopeful about.

1. Win enough games to prove we aren't completely dead. At least take both games from the Jags for gods sake.
2. Keenum does well and becomes our starter.
3. Kubiak gone. gone. gone.

After that it becomes more wishful thinking than hopeful.

These two together are extremely unlikely. If Kubiak is fired it will be because McNair comes to the conclusion the team outside of QB is better than Kubiak. He'll let a new HC pick his solution at QB.

True. But in my little fantasy world Keenum sets the world on fire AND Kubiak gets fired.

I agree. IMO the only hope Keenum has of being the starter through next year is if Kubiak stays.

I like Keenum, but would rather take a shot at some of these QBs coming out like Mariota, Hundley, ect.

I agree. Kubiak's ouster is unlikely. A new coach would, without any doubt, choose Keenum from among those we have now. Case needs to wrap up the ball when he's about to be sacked, but that's something he can learn. He already reads a defense better than the other 2, and avoids throwing to a defender when they have anticipated the play and are hovering there waiting to pick the ball off.

Season is over... The window for a Super Bowl team has closed. We'll be an average team until we can get a stellar QB.

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

Let's assume we beat Indy coming out of the bye: 3-5

We then have then have the Cardinals, Raiders, Jags, Pats, and then the Jags again: The Pats looks beatable and there isn't another game in that stretch that we should lose. Let's be realistic and assume we lose to the Pats and win the others: 7-6

That leaves the last 3 games against Indy, Denver, and the Tacks. Winning any two of those games could get us into the play offs under certain circumstances. In other words, we aren't really done yet.

Then again, it's all over if Indy wins next week. You might say its....THE BIGGEST GAME IN FRANCHISE HISTORY!!!!!!
