It's about time....we can use a little of the brashness in the locker room...but it really does not matter, the press will just play it down... and right into our hands for next year...

its not a big game but for the fans and i doubt they will even have highlights except on primetime. for the chicago game i didnt see highlights on sportcenter or inside the nfl. is that correct or did i snooze off?

but just cuz we dont get no love from the media is no excuse not to play your hearts out. id like to think they feel good about pleasing the fans and earning their paycheck.

I'd love to see them win by 10 and 1/2 points. As far as I know that has never been done. LOL! Seriously, the Texans don't have a good record in games like this so I have to say that I'm a little worried about how they will handle it. Everyone is assuming that the Browns have packed it in, but not many are concerned that the Texans have as well. I hope that they don't go out there with the "last day of school" mentality. It would be great to see them finish off the season on a good note.

Maybe a little over compensation after the Jags game when they were
a TD underdog ? I mean, the odds makers miss it by 4 TDs, over reaction might be expected.

The oddsmakers didn't necessarily think you guys would lose by a TD. They set the line at what they think will get the most people to bet. If a lot of people had been betting one way or the other, the line would have changed. I bet a lot of poeple won this week by saying the Texans would cover the spread. Hell, I probably would have bet they'd cover the spread if I was a betting man.

You're right of course when you say the odds makers spread is ultimately set
by the "market". But I was really referring to was the predictions in general which were mostly clustered aound a TD. And by the way, let me congratulate you on your ability to place a successful bet based on hindsight as yours is as good as everyone elses, which is 20-20.

I wish they wouldnt do that, every time we have been favored by the point spread I think we have lost, or at least most of the time. We usually respond when we are the underdog. Correct me if Im wrong, but heres hoping for our second shutout in a row.

Yeesh... being a favorite by that much...

Alright, Texans - you wanted some respect, you just got the oddsmakers to give you the first step of that.

Beating people when you're supposed to beat people is something they just have to learn to do. You can't get any better if you don't. I think this time the Texans are going to kick some butt and get the win.

The Texans better be ready to win this one.
The last time I felt this confident about a Texan victory, the Bengals blew us out 38-3.
