Default playoffs

i know. we dont have a chance!!!

but...... its our 5th year and im tired of just playing for a couple of wins and this team is playing some pretty good football right now.

so after about 2 years of basically not even looking at standings i decided to give it a look. we are 2 games out of the final wild card position and the 2 teams at 5 and 4 are the jets who we get to play and the jags who we own the tiebreaker with. so i looked a little deeper. the jets and jags have tough games next week while we get buffalo at home. so i looked a little deeper. we only play 2 more games against really good football teams. looks pretty good. but i finally came to my senses no way, we havent won back to back games in i dont know how long. we dont have a shot at the playoffs.....

unless....

If the Texans Defense holds, the Offense might just have enough to have a 50-50 Chance of winning their remaining games.


Playoffs aren't likely, but with a tough defense like the one the Texans are fielding, anything is possible.

When thing I have learned being a Texan fan, threads like this one lead to bad things

Just look to next week and then after that week look towards the next.

One week at a time.

I wouldn't even start talking about possible postseason until after the Jets game...if we can beat the Bills/Jets that would make 3 wins in a row for us which is something we've never done before in our 4.5 year history as an NFL team.

If we can do that then we'll start talking postseason, but until then im just thinking about the possibility of our first 8-8 season!!!

That's kind of sad. I'm glad David Carr didn't say he wouldn't cut his hair until we won 3 games in a row because he would look like a wooly mammoth right about now.

I don't think theres going to be any Easy wins. The bills held the colts to 17 points today and only lost by 1. The Texans need to be ready for a hard fought game this next weekend.

but you cant go by that...the jags shut out every opponent at home this year except for us and the colts barely beat the titans by 1 and we should have destroyed them just like the rest of the league is doing. Every game is different and who ever brings their A game and doesnt get cheated by refs can win any game. Look at the phins vs the bears, hell most games this NFL season for that matter....there is no for sure formula for any win even on paper.

we've got 4 winnable games coming up. now winning them is a different story. if not for the bad luck vs. the oilers we could seriously make a run at it.

I don't know if the fans should be expecting or hoping for play-offs....

But I sure hope that's still the teams goal...I hope that they are still shooting for that within the confines of Reliant...

Well thats a nice change of pace from everyone wanting someones head on a plate to thinking playoffs. I would like to add that please people dont get dropped in a bucket of depression if we don't make the playoffs. This team has fought hard and have come a long way. My hat goes off to the Texans if you don't make post season I don't care. Thanks for trying.
