I posted a thing at GIF, and some new Titans fan (Bulluck53, if that helps) said that neither one of us make the playoffs. I guess as long as THEY don't make it, I'll be happy.

Anyone notice something great about our schedule...we play against a lot of the other contenders. So if we can just focus on one week at a time...lets look at this..

Browns-6th place right now, we beat them we share 6-5 records.
Titans- 5th place 6-4 right now
Bucs- NFC, so this would be a good game to lose if any I guess.
Broncos- 10th/ 5-5
Colts- Who knows, we almost beat them without Andre, and they are hobbled and almost lost to KC.
Jags- 7-3 and they just lost Mike Peterson for the rest of the season.

So who knows, we may be in this hunt till the end. That would be a great way to end the season. Say we need a win to get into the playoffs the last week against the Jags who hat us so much. Win or lose that would be great for this franchise. To just have that game where its like "You win you move forward, you lose good luck next year."

I'll be honest with you, I havn't been this excited about the Texans since week 3 of the season. Who would of thought after all the tripping and falling we've had here recently that we'd be "in the hunt"

If we bring the same fire to each of these games that we brought to the Saints game, who knows.

First thing: Can we get a win in the Dawg Pound? Cleveland has a suspect defense but they sure can put up points. Can we win a shootout? With the "Andre Brothers" and OD, I like our chances.

Go Texans!

So playing the Pats means playing in the AFC championship I am all for it.

Default Re: Playoff Possible in Houston?

Here's a write up of the AFC playoff picture:

AFC Playoff Picture Week 12

Worth a read. Here's an excerpt:

Quote:
The AFC South, meanwhile, sees everyone still in the mix for playoff spots. The Jaguars are rising, though, while the Titans appear to be slipping, thanks to a distinct loss of Albert Haynesworth. The Texans, meanwhile, are back at .500 and could sneak into this race, now that Matt Schaub is throwing touchdowns to Andre Johnson again.

The Browns remain in the hunt, but beating the Dolphins and Rams, while expected, does nothing for their strength of victory ranking. Cleveland could miss the playoffs just because those two teams suck so much.

Here's something to ponder.....The year the Patriots won their first superbowl they were 5-5 at this time, ended up winning 6 in a row, made the playoffs, won 3 games including at Pittsburgh, then went on to defeat the unstoppable Rams in the SB.

All we need to do is bring Tom Brady off the bench and we're golden.

I'm not even going to say the 'P' word until we get at least to 8-6, because we would need to win at least 10 games minimum.

Default Re: Playoff Possible in Houston?

The original question was if the playoffs are possible in Houston...

Technically speaking, yes, they are possible...

BUT

Even though the playoffs are a possibility, the Texans are still a team that hasn't beaten a single team with a winning record all year, and the teams that we have beaten are a combined 14-36.

I'm usually a glass-half-full kind of guy, and I'm trying to be one here, but the next good team we beat will be the first...

I am optimistic that the return of AJ will make us a better team, though. I think Cleveland is the perfect team for us at this moment, to really get a gauge where we're at as a team. They're pretty good, and a win against them would be a quality win, but they're not so good that we'll be a huge underdog or anything... I think it's a good litmus test against a comparable level of competition.

That's okay. We have to beat good teams to make it in anyway. May as well be against the teams we have to overtake. I agree with you. I like that we're playing Cleveland next week. It's a must-win & we'll see where we stand. What concerns me is the 0-3 division record though.

I would say the Jags to beat Buffalo b/c that would remove the tie between the Texans and the Bills if the Texans beat the Browns.

Default Re: above 500 season Possible in Houston?

we got nothing but the next game ahead of us right now. Coach has instructed the team to look no further than the browns and I am telling all of you to get off the bong and take it one game at a time. We need to focus on a winning season right now. I do not like the sound of 8 and 8 but we will be luck to reach that this year. I have dreams but I keep them in check when we played as bad as we have played this season. We still owe our selves a 3 win streak much less an above 500 season.If we even sniffed post season play we would likely get wiped off the map. AJ is great to have back but did he really bring back Dunta, Steve, Ahmahn. Quit this talk of post season and focus on winning the next game.
