the team i have the biggest problem being ranked behind is KC, first of all their record is 3-4 and we beat them. i do realize they have been playin well of late, but SO HAVE WE we have won 4 of 5 with the only loss an overtime game with a vikings(with Moss) team that espn regards very highly(no 7). Green Bay has been so inconsistent this year, they got absolutely humiliated by Tennessee, whom we beat up on. and we beat down Jacksonville this weekend and they are waaaay ahead of us. to me this is indicative of the fact that the Houston name so far has been synonymous with being a poor/mediocre team. i think we all agree that this team is a damn good one right now. the schedule ahead for us is most likely the toughest in the league, but it is a blessing because winning those games are the only way to establish ourselves as a good FRANCHISE rather that just a good team. thats when the respect comes. lets hope Carrs ankle is good to go because when he's on a roll there are few that are better, and he's rolling right now.

That is down right scary!
Well, Toefield really, not Taylor.

I think i would much rather go under the radar then to get noticed. I'm not worried about power rankings... what do they prove?.. Can the predict games?

Wow, when I saw top 10, I guessed we would be #10. But being number #7 is incredible. I remember over the last two season when checking the power rankings, I always had to scroll all the way down. It's awesome to see how many teams are under us.

That is kind of a trip but like Jamie Sharper said, I want the respect at the end of the season. There is alot more football to go back where we came from and alot to go places we've never been before.

SI power rankings

##7 Houston Texans (4-3)
Last week K.C. drew the angry e-mails, this week it's gonna be Houston. Hey Z, you gettin' paid off by a) Charlie Casserly, b) Dom Capers, c) David Carr, 4) Andre Johnson (pick one)? I like this team, see. They're on the rise. They beat the right people.

Giddy up
The young Texans are quickly moving to the front of the herd

I like that quote on SI. Looks like the Texans are getting alot of respect right now, and rightly so. But, let's not put the cart before the horse. Most of us predicted between 7-9 wins, and they are right on track.

This is a pivotal point in the season for us. Go 0 - 2 on our road trip, we suck again, go 1 - 1, we're still in it, go 2 - 0 and things are looking very promising. I would love for us to split the road trip and take the primetime win at home the following week.

Most of these people don't even really watch the game... Visit other team boards and the majority of people have their eye on us, it can't be denied and WE WON'T BE DENIED!!!!

The bottom line is we haven't done anything but get to one game over .500

4-3

Respect comes when we win. We are just NOW starting to win games. Just now.
