Hey I just calls it how I sees it.

I am not going to sit on the fence and say "Well we may make the playoffs."

I am saying we should unless 9 or 10 wins isn't enough to get us in.

Thats my prediction, and I am sticking to it.

Everyone else predicited 8-10 wins, why do I get flack for doing the same thing?

I just added the 'P' word in there and thats the truth, I think we'll get 9 or 10 wins, and if that isn't enough to get us in then it just isn't.

Guys, this is just my gut feeling but......

If we win more games, we won't lose as much.

I am on your side. The AFC has come off to a slow start. If we can win two games that we arent "supposed" to (Indy, @Indy, @Titans, @Chargers) and play consistently, I don't see why the playoffs are out of reach, other than mere disbelief by those of us who are accustomed to losing.

It's your keen eye for the obvious that I find funny. Of course if other teams win more games they'll go to the playoffs. It's like saying if my feet were bigger, I would need bigger shoes.

We're all with you though.

I like John Clayton, but I think he's wrong on two counts: 1- The Texans will make the playoffs, probably as a Wild Card. As I predicted over at Battle Red Blog, I think they'll finish second behind Indy. 2- Tennessee is NOT better than Houston. We are 2-0 and they are 1-1. Records aside, Tennessee has VY, and that's about it. The Texans' D will dominate them I think. I'm looking forward to the two Titan games this year. I think we win both those.

John Clayton does look like Beaker, and when put up against Sean Salisbury, he's a genius.

Well lol I was just saying I thought we were going to win 9 or 10 games but it may not be enough in the AFC is all. If we beat the Colts though, that'd be the second game we were not supposed to win IMO.

Those all sound pretty tough but I had the Carolina game a loss for us. Titans don't scare me as much at home, since YKW basically did everything he could to lose us that game.

He can't be John Madden, because at no time in his post did he mention Brett Favre, and everyone knows that it is impossible for Madden to make a comment that doesn't include Favre. I heard that he had to do extra takes during the filming of those Tinactin commercials because he kept inserting Favre into the lines he was supposed to say.

On paper, that was a great team. In the preseason, it looked like all the pieces fit, and they began last year(the first5 maybe six games) pretty well.

They weaknesses were exposed by the Saints, whose HeadCoach just happen to have been the Cowboys OC the three years prior to becoming the Saints head coach.

Still, they made it to the play-offs and lost because of a botched snap.

Who cares what anyone says?

SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Consultant Dan Reeves told Bob McNair that David Carr wasn't the problem.
The national media told Texan fans that they should have drafted offensive linemen in 2007 (despite the thinness at that position in the draft), and said that Schaub was going to get destroyed with the Texans line.

Check out what *the experts* said about the Texans 2007 draft. It is pretty funny in retrospect: "Texans Draft Grades: 'Experts' Full of It Like I Have to Tell You That"

Very few people writing about the Texans have actually seen much of their play. They see stats, they see meager highlights and say what they are going to say.

SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I don't know what this Texans team has in store, but what I do know is that them 'experts' don't know much about these Texans. Mostly because the Texans don't know who they are yet. They are still figuring that out, learning what happens through hard work, adding and subtracting parts, and believing in themselves, but what we've seen so far looks like they are on the right track.

It's more fun to cheap shot the Texans than admit you don't really know much about the team, nor have to learn it.

Doesn't matter what they say, what I say or what anyone says. You play the game well and that will stop all that talk.

SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Thinking about this weekend and the new found media attention we are getting made me realize something that normally would be common sense. This game against INDY is quite possibly the worst trap we could set ourselves up for. At the end of the year if we had won this game but didnt make the playoffs we would look inadequate, if we had lost this game but didnt make the playoffs we would still look inadequate. we do not HAVE to win this game to have a chance at the playoffs. the only time this would become important is in a tie-breaker situation between 2 wildcard teams. What I am trying to say is , how well we play the game , the effort and gusto etc, are most important. I firmly believe we are really really close to an "any given sunday" type team and every win or loss is equally important. IMHO
