Default Winning Streaks

I haven't seen this posted anywhere else but I just wanted to say...

Before this season, we'd never won more than 2 games in a row. This season, we've now won 3 games in a row twice.

Let's extend that next week.

Agreed. We play the Titans next week, and i hope we defeat them in a similar manner to today's victory. i don't want to blow 'em out, i want to yank the rug out from under their feet at the last possible moment. those are so much more soul-shattering IMO.

Not that Texans fans would know anything about this feeling.

Wouldn't it make you sick if we finish with a 6 game winning streak at 9-7 and DO NOT make the playoffs? We might need to have a Rosencopter Bar-b-cue.

Before anyone gets too upset, don't worry, because I REALLY doubt we win next Sunday.

I don't think we'll beat the Titans, but if we do, it's 9-7 this year! Hope I'm wrong about the Titans, 'cause 9-7 after that horrible start would be sweet.

The problem with finishing 9-7 is that it would reopen the wounds of the losses that should have been wins, and realizing that the Texans missed the playoffs because of those botched efforts.

That would be a buzzkill.

I want to knock Collins out in the fourth quarter of a tied game (nothing serious, just a sprained thumb or something -- I'm not malicious). After 15 minutes of CBS replaying "the run," Young twice overthrows his receiver so badly in the end zone that the ball bounces off of someone in the stands wearing a Titans #10 jersey. Mario stuffs him on a run attempt on third down, then runs into the stands to apologize to Vince's Mamma for hurting her baby. Bironas misses a chip shot FG and the Texans get the ball on their own three.

Then Slaton Runs for a 97 yard TD to win the game. Leach bowls over Haynewsorth in the process and tramples Al's knee, ending his season.

Now THAT sounds like a job for Leach!

Yeah...I still haven't gotten over the Indy loss.

On another note, I need to head up to the Woodlands mall and get a red texans shirt. I'm guessing they'll probably be wearing battle red for the Titans game

Pretty sure that can't happen when you're already 6-7.

Obviously I'd like to keep winning. It's just that it would lead to some lamentations about what could have -- no, *should* have -- been...

Pretty sure teams have the option to use alternate home uniforms twice every year and we have taken advantage of it. Two home games left, saving it for Chicago only makes sense to me if we could guarantee we would be fighting for a 9-7 record.
