Default If we had got a Good Spot

Because we got screwed on that spot. And continued our opening drive against Pitsburgh, this season would have been totally different.

If Demeco had not had a very rare whiff on 4th and 9.

If AJ hadn't had a one day spectacular case of droppsies.

And if every one of the other 31 teams in the NFL couldn't say something similar, it might matter.

Actually, it still wouldn't matter.

If Kubiak had challenged the completion to McCareins in week 3.
If Kubiak had called a timeout prior to the fake punt in week 4.
If Kubiak hadn't called the Sage rollouts in week 5.
If Kubiak had pulled Schaub after the injury in week 9.
If Kubiak...

I think they are mentally tougher than that. At least I hope so. If not, what if there is a bad spot next year?!

Default Re: If we had got a Good Spot

If AJ hadn't made a MIRACLE catch against Miami, we would have lost that game.
If Jeff Fisher had kicked the field goal, we probably would have lost that game.

These things go both ways. That's why to me it's such a waste of time to say "oh, well we SHOULD be 10-6 if not for blah blah blah."

We are what we are. An 8-8 team. To think that a few inches on the first drive of the season could have turned around are season seems pretty silly. For all we know, the Texans could have scored a TD and then shutdown the rest of the game. I don't think that a missed call on the first drive of the season would change much of anything.

Pittsburgh kicked our butts....one spot didn't lose the game just like the Renfroe call didn't keep the Oilers out of the Super Bowl since their was a full quarter left.

I agree with you on the Steeler-Texans game this year. We got beat down. Schaub looked defeated right after the first sack.
I'm not so sure about the Mike Renfro bad call. That was a slugfest where points for us were hard to come by. That TD would have tied the game.

Default Re: If we had got a Good Spot

I was upset about those missed oppurtunities too. Then reality hit me. Even if we made a few of those crucial plays, and pulled out another win or two, we still wouldn't be in the playoffs. New England went 11-5, and the're gone fishin'. At the minimum we needed 3 more wins, and a tiebreaker to get into the playoffs. Sure, I would feel much better at 10-6 than 8-8. Either way means no playoffs, so Im not too bitter about it.

The Texans marched right down the field, and into FG range with 50+ second left in that game. Tens only chance of winning was to convert the 4th down, and run the clock. Kicking the field goal just chances the score, not the winner.

Who said anything about winning the game??

That was our first offensive drive of the year. We were out there playing football... throwing the ball, looking sharp. Running the ball, looking rough... real rough.

But on 4th & 1, on our side of the field, our head coach put the ball in our QBs hands. Showing a great amount of confidence in our team, our offense, our QB.

In my mind, that would have been a big boost to our team, if we could have stayed on the field, for just a little bit longer. If we'd have scored... all the better.

Every mistake we made after that, every miscue... might not have happened. May have, who knows... But things seemed to go wrong for us... from that first drive.

I could be way off base.

You may not want to play this "what if" game.

But we made that first down, and I can't help but wonder.
