I love this thought process:

Quote:
The Texans are a year away from being a playoff team, but they are going in the right direction. The reason I say they're a year away is because they have holes in the secondary and their defensive line is still coming together. The other reason they aren't a lock to make the playoffs this season is because the Colts and Titans are better at the moment. Still, coach Gary Kubiak and general manager Rick Smith have turned this franchise around by finding a quarterback (Matt Schaub) who doesn't get sacked and getting Ahman Green to spark the running game. They still need to draft a wide receiver in the first round of next year's draft and get one or two more offensive linemen to put them over the top. But they are progressing. -- John Clayton
That sounds like a little more work than is needed. Holes in the secondary are clearly a Cornerback and a Safety. Let's see...add a wide receiver in the first round, and two more linemen...maybe Clayton forgot that we don't have a second-round pick next year, or maybe he's banking on the Texans making a huge dive in free-agency this offseason.

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
It is important if we want to be 3 and 0!

For me, the trap game is going to be the Falcons.

This game with Indy is huge. But even if we lose it, we SHOULD win against the Falcons and Dolphins to go 4-1.

But we could have a huge letdown after the Indy game and the Falcons could really surprise us.

This is where that whole leadership and poise thing needs to come into play.

I'm sorry, but when did the Titans become better than us?
