Default Reasons the Texans will win in Indianapolis this Sunday

Here's why:

1.) There is no home field advantage in the NFL anymore.

2.) We looked fantastic at the beginning of the Eagle's game. I haven't felt that way in a long time about our team. We had confidence. We played like we were supposed to be fantastic - Offense and Defense.

3.) After the confusion of the McNabb to the wide open Stallworth play, we lost every bit of confidence that we had. It was like we reminded ourselves, "Oh yeah, we're a bunch of losers." That attitude will not stick.

4.) Kubiak and his crew definitely have something to prove to the world now. Peyton's Place would be the ultimate venue for that display.

5.) There is no alternative. We will win.

Offensively, we should be better this week I think, mostly because the Colts aren't much of a blitzing team. That means our run game should be much better this week. Colts secondrary is also not as good as the Eagle's. If we can max protect Carr a little bit from Freeny and Mathis and run the damn football, we should put up more than 10 pts.

Defensively, we just have to pray that our Dline has suddenly gotten better from week 1 to week 2. I just really don't know what else to say. Word is that the Colts Oline isn't that good, but I think it's really just because Peyton threw them under the bus. They're a pretty good group.

That said, we still got our backs against the wall guys. We need experience more than anything right now, and this is week 2. I'm looking foward to beating them with a much more coherant team later in our home stadium. I'm not much of an optimist; I'm more of a realist. But that doesn't mean I don't get excited on game day!!!

1. Our uni's are better than theirs.
2. Someone has to win the biggest upset of the year. Why not us?
3. The Colts have never seen Kubiak's offense...oh wait.
4. We have 1 more Heisman Trophy winner than them (doesn't that sting Peyton?).
5. We are going to unveil our new secret weapon, Sam Gado.
6. "H" comes before "I" in the alphabet.
7. The alternative is that we lose.

Plus the Colts are coming off a big road win on Sunday night. The scene is set. However, I don't see this happening.

No, no, no, no.

Here's my list of why we will win:

(1) Indy forgets to show up.

(2) New commissioner makes Peyton throw with his feet and not his hands. And after Peyton throwing three TDs with his feet, the commissioner makes the Indy WRs wear blindfolds for the rest of the game.

(3) We get to start every drive on the Colts' 20-yd. line.

(4) I load up Madden 07 on my PS2 and slide the "difficulty" down to the level of "Mentally Challenged," and I use cheats to boost my players' ratings.

Our secondary is our weakest link and a bunch of you guys think that they can hold up to probably one of the best WR core in the NFL and a Pro-Bowl QB. **** in one hand and wish in the other, then tell me which one gets filled up faster fellas. Just being realistic and not dreaming, that's all. I do expect us to be in the game and play better as a team. That's all I want and more realistic for me.

4. We have 1 more Heisman Trophy winner than them (doesn't that sting Peyton?).

Dude, as a Tennessee fan, that was below the belt. Everybody Knows ESPN hates UTK. If you want proof, here it is. CHARLES WOODSON, DB/Return Specialist won the Heisman that year. How do you win the Heisman with Punt Returns as opposed to giving to the Greatest QB today? If this is the case. Don't bother watching the rest of the College Football Season...Tedd Ginn Jr. is gonna win the Heisman over Brady Quinns 4000 yard, 40 TD season.
Oh wait, ESPN likes Notre Dame.

Thanks for bringing back painful memories...But we won the National Championship in '98 with a guy named Tee Martin. We should sign ole Tee, just so we could have more Tennessee National Champions than them too. Plus he needs a job, I think hes bagging groceries now.

Offence Vs Offence..

IT's going to be a shoot out...our D just needs one or two big plays and we might just get lucky. hey..anything can happen and even if we lose ,we got another chance down the road. 0-8, not for long.

Are you TexansAlltheWay from last year? Sounds very much like the keys to winning the game this week type of post. I think I'll wait till week 4 for a win. As long as we are in a position to win and playing well I'll be happy the next two weeks.

Well if all thats true then go to Gallery furniture this week and purchase 3000+ dollars worth of furniture and if the Texans beat Indy then you will get it all for free. They are suppose to be running the ad tomorrow(this is what my family told me don't ask me how they know).

As the saying goes any given Sunday. Truth is though Manning will likely carve up our secondary like a Thanksgiving turkey if last Sunday is any indication as to the play of our defense.

I hate to say this but Dwight Freeney is licking his chops thinking about going against Spencer. Noise bothered him in Denver, think what it will do to him in Indy. Scary.

The only way the Texans have a snowballs' chance in hell is if Peyton Manning loses his throwing arm before Sunday and is forced to pull a "Rick Allen," in which they still would probably win.

I must have stepped into Bizarro World, because I think some people said this game was winnable.

Here's what it would take for the Texans to beat the Colts.

1. Peyton Manning gets injured on the first play from scrimmage.
2. Jim Sorgi gets injured on the second play from scrimmage.
3. Adam Vinatieri misses a field goal, which bounces off the upright, goes backwards over 100 yards and goes through the opposite goal post to give us 3 points.
4. Repeat step three a few times.

We're going to lose that game people. It's just a matter of by how much. I would be extaticly SHOCKED if we manage to win that game. Maybe later in the year, when we've had time to gel and get experience and play at home against them, but not now.

The first drive and first half were not as good as some think. The skills players (most of them) were making up for bad line play on both sides of the ball. As of 1:00 left in the first half (and including all of the 2nd half), the line play got too bad for the skills players to overpower it, so to speak. No running game and no pass pressure on D. That'll devastate your chances. I don't think the sacks were all on the O-line, of course, but the bad running was.
