I give us a slight edge in this game. I think we will likely lose at Jacksonville. The Browns have cashed it in.

I am guessing we go 7-9 at this point.

This is my Dad's old favorite team. He was an Illinois kid. I went to their old stadium before the space ship landed on it. I saw the great Walter Peyton run live. It's gonna be cold as heck.

Is it heresy to suggest that one might, in the back of their mind, hope the Texans play well but lose out? Another top 10 pick would sure look good next year ...

You know I bet Bengal's fans had that same attitude from 1991-2002. Doesn't it make you proud to be compared to those Bengals?

Besides, if there's someone you just got to have in the top 10 (or in the first round say for instance) you can always bundle the rest of your draft picks together and trade your way on up there.

Which IMO is saying that you go jump on someone in the top 10 because you're absolutely, positively certain that this kid is what you're missing. It's like signing a really, really expensive free agent. You go get him when that's the exact piece you're missing. Otherwise if you don't have to be in the top 10 then don't be. I'd much rather watch wins than the draft (though come draft day I'm so hard up for anything football related that the draft ain't bad)

I have been keeping my eye out on the long range forecast since sunday, and the temp forecast continues to plummet. On Sunday, I saw low 40's, Monday, I saw 32, yesterday, it said 30, and today, the NWS site shows a high of 20 with snow possible. Weather will be a real factor for the first time in Texans history. Should be interesting.

Here is a link to the NWS forecast - http://www.crh.noaa.gov/forecasts/IL...1&city=Chicago

Yup, cause we're past that point. We're not desperately needing one star player. Time to hit the draft with 8 wins by God!

Herm Edwards is one of my favorite coaches. How can you not like that guy? He has a great attitude. He is the kind of coach that can motivate coaches to do just about anything.

Herm Edwards is also a coach, many wanted fired but management stuck to their guns with him and they have a winning ball club now.

I think that if a lot of people saw the Steelers offensive calling, without knowing it was the Steelers, they would say that they don't play to win, but the Steelers are 12-1. Also, Carr is a 3rd year QB, with really bad pass protection, who keeps audibling to the run, so they look even more conservative than they really are.

I am not sure he has any other thing to audible to besides a run. Haven't seen it. If he looks over and it looks like they are stacked for the pass he has called, then I suppose he just tries a run. I wonder if there is even a pass audible for when a run is called available to him.

We've discussed that in the past and I think the answer is no, if I'm not mistaken. Carr can only audible to runs, I believe. Apparently, they think that's all he's capable of right now. All I know is they see him practice and I don't, so I assume they are right. He'll get it one of these days and they'll start adding passing audibles. One of the reasons they think he's not ready to audible to pass plays may be because he might be audibling to run plays when it's not necessary at all. You can't let a QB like that start calling pass audibles and throwing INTs, when maybe the original play would've worked in the first place.

Lol, for now, maybe they should just stop letting him audible at all.

he will get better , the coaches just need to give him more freedom in the play calling. Have a little more faith in our O to do there job and maybe we could put some more points up on the board !!!!!

Personally I see the audible thing as kind of indicative of most of the issues that we have been talking about. We are soooo bolted down and afraid of a mistake that we wind up making mistakes by trying not to make a mistake. At some point you have to just go out and play football and stop worring. Let's start playing with abandon on both sides of the ball and see what happens. I suspect that we might see some players who are enjoying playing and doing very well at it. We might still lose, but it will be an enthusiatic loss.
