I would not be surprised to see any team beat them. Truthfully.

And I'll bow out of this discussion because to be honest too much Titans talk gives me a migraine.

I'm sure we are better, but those ranking us are waiting for us to actually prove it. We show promise, but our record stands at 1-4.

And what's that famous quote....you are what your record says you are.

I mean me you and your mama knows that a six foot five guy takes three steps and falls forward, he's got an eighteen inch first down. Now I know and you know that the head lines man was guessing on that forth down try in Pittsburgh. Guess what ? It don't mean squat. Anyway you want to dress it. Potential or not, that's an L.

Yeah, who give a flip about the power rankings, but hey - we've moved up to 20 and we're "streaky".

ESPN also has us at 20. I'm not really concerned about rankings as much as I am about not being in last place in our division this year. It's a nice mental thing to not be in last place.

20th is the exact right spot for us. Directly below all teams with a winning record. We're #1 in the sub .500 club

Streaky would be they way I would describe us to a tee. When we are on, teams should worry. When we're not, its ugly. We are suffocating on D, or such a merry band of ******* its pathetic.

Well, ended up just below the halfway mark in power rankings at 17th- bright side is it's our high water mark. Dark side... it's our high water mark.

just wait till NEXT YEAR!

Sometimes how you finish isn't quite good enough, but Houston fans will hold onto hope that they can be the trendy pick of next summer to finally turn the corner into being a contender. Still, even with all the promising talent on this team, it's somewhat daunting to be grinding against the Colts and Titans every year.

COOL STAT: After allowing 28+ points in their first five and eight of their first 10 games this season, the Texans held every opponent to 24 or less in their final six games.

It couldn't have happened to a better team! Except maybe the tacks and bottomline bud.

I'm just glad I won't have to here anything about the cowplops (maybe it should be cowflops) at work for the next few months.
