Default Next 7 games...

What a massive comeback yesterday, and hell obviously week 1 for that matter. Big 2-0 (1-0 in division) start considering we are now entering a BRUTAL stretch over the next 7 games.

@ 1-1 Ravens - Defending champs on the road in tough environment.
Vs 2-0 Seahawks - Toughest game of the year?
@ 1-1 49ers - Toughest game of the year?
Vs 1-1 Rams - Fisher has this team rounding into form, with a QB.
@ 2-0 Chefs - Reid with the surprise team of 13? Arrowhead.
Vs 1-1 Colts - Rival game vs. Colts who could be 2-5 at this point? Seriously.
@1-1 Cards - Worst team in the BEST division in the NFL, on the road.

Good news is the Colts schedule is brutal as well and they could very well be in a tough position to overcome a bad start to even make the playoffs, conversely looking at Titans schedule if they beat the Chargers next week, they could be looking at a 8-10 win season. We really needed that win yesterday. Thank gawd we dodged that bullet.

Going to be interesting to see where things are at mid November when we get a favorable 2 game stretch of the Raiders and Jags at home, before our revenge game vs. The pats.

GO TEXANS!!!!

Heck, they can't play like that and expect to beat the Ravens either! I know the old saying "sometimes it's better to be lucky than good," but sooner or later the luck will run out. And, when it does, you'd better be good. I just hope they can tie up all the loose ends before their luck does run out.

Say what you will about how we played yesterday but the titans defense played pretty damn good. They were attacking the entire game and were constantly in the back field. I think the chargers and titans are better than they were last year and we should be glad we have wins against two quality opponents.

We're going to see that Chargers' offense vs that Titans' defense. That should tell us something about us. We were befuddled early, ended up scoring 30 on them. 24 in regulation.

The Chargers hung 28 on us. Lets see what they do vs Tennessee's defense.

So if the Chargers come out and hang 40 on the Tacks, what does that say about the Texans offense vs. the Tacks defense? If the Tacks pitch a shutout, what does that say about the Texans defense vs. the Chargers offense?

Not sure I like either message, to be honest.

The "only reason" to beat the Seahawks & 49ers is for bragging rights. So we can say, "We can". If we beat the Ravens & lose the next two, we're 3-2 (3-0 in conference).

We don't need to make those games bigger than they are. Beating them min the regular season means nothing. Doesn't mean we can beat them in the Super Bowl (neutral setting), doesn't mean we can't.

We've got the Rams & the Chiefs after those two. We can be 5-2 going into the bye if we lose to Seattle & SanFran.... ain't nothing wrong with that.

Seattle just set a Guinness World Record for loudest sport event yesterday at 136+ decibel, beating out a soccer event in Istanbul.

Being out of conference they don't affect tie breakers much ....but when it comes to finishing with the best record in the conference , they all matter the same.

Yawn at this logic. Match-ups rule the day. If the Bolts don't match-up with TEN, they'll get clowned, and vice versa.

We as sports fans have got to stop using this mindset. IMO, it's very misguided.

We can't expect to win any one of these match ups if we continue to give up 26 points per game.

Unless you're expecting us to go undefeated, we're going to lose a game or two (or three) somewhere. If we can pick & chose those (I know we can't) non-conference is the way to go.

FYI, my point here is to get ahead of the doom & gloom that's sure to erupt in the case we lose to one of these two "elite" teams. If we lose to them, "It's over, we suck, we can't beat the elite teams." If they lose to us, "It wasn't prime time, it doesn't mean anything, they weren't at full strength yet."

Default Re: Next 7 games...

I'm not overly impressed with 2-0 right now. I'll take it, and no apologies are being asked for, but for anyone who wants to give props to the Tacks and Bolts for being improved, I am personally reluctant to confuse them with the elite teams. I have little doubt Houston should make the post season this season. We have enough talent to do that, but currently, I'm still getting over the taste of a pathetic home stretch from last season capped by the 2nd beat down by the Patriots. This 2-0 team has shown me nothing to suggest they have made any strides from last year. They continue to beat the teams I would expect

Looking at the schedule, the next 7 games are a mixed bag. The next 3 are HUGE. I like knowing the Texans seem to always play well against the Ravens. But Seattle and S.F.... wow. read option qb's with top/elite Defenses are going to be a bad match ups.

Thank god for 2-0. I hope it doesn't serve us by easing some of the pain felt by the time we play St. Louis.
