Default Win this game and all is forgiven?

We were expected to be 1-1 after the first two games anyways right? So, assuming we go in there and steal one tomorrow we will all be back on the bandwagon and ready for a Super Bowl right?

At least until we lay a goose egg against whoever we lose to next. Then we'll be back to "ZOMG this team sucks! 2-14 again!!!1! Bring Back Sage!!!"

I will not be on the bandwagon if we steal one from them. I will be on the bandwagon when we're the team that opponents want to 'steal' one from.

I'm off the bandwagon until we get Kubiak replaced or Kubiak pulls out a miraculous season that sees us as being bonafide contenders. Not merely a team that ecked its way into the playoffs. I mean contenders.

Since this is the same question as euro-texan asked in his poll, I must be consistent.

If we only "steal one", then all is not forgiven. Although, since that would mean we pushed the hated Titans into the AFC South cellar it would definitely be sweet. But the Texans will still be on probation. Truthfully, a lot of us will be waiting for the next let down.

OTOH....

If we go into their place and win convincingly - say by 10 or more - then maaaybe I'll chalk week one up to a case where our boys came out flat and the Jets were pumped and that always leads to the flat team getting pummeled

and honestly, I'm just as interested to see what the Jets do against the Brady Bunch as I am to see how we do against the Titans. If the Jets go toe-to-toe with the Pats, then maybe they were much better than I thought they were and I was premature to expect a win.

Super Bowl...?

Actually, what this team really needs to do is just play well against a good 3-4 and, more significantly and specifically, go to Indianapolis and KICK SOME PEYTON around. At home ain't good enough. Do it in Indi and THEN I will be impressed.

Put me down as a "no" as well.

It's just a matter of time until another good defensive coach embarrasses us.

Forgiveness will require one of the following to happen:

1. Kubiak takes this team to the playoffs OR
2. Kubiak and Smith get replaced

Default Re: Win this game and all is forgiven?

I will root like hell for this team every sunday,

But forgiven.. NO..

they have broke my too many times so far and they are on probation with me.

What frustrates me with the "Big" wins that the team does, rival fans come in and say "well you played your super bowl" and I admit at the time, I don't believe it and say, our team is getting better.

BUT OTOH, the team has come out repeatedly on games that we think they they should win, esp with a team that supposedly "turned the corner" comes out and lays a big fat goose egg

I honestly have lost track of how many times this team has ended the back 8 of their season with pretty good games and gives us hope for the start of the next season only to play like crap ..

BTW we are on a 7 game Sept losing streak

The astros can afford to do this and get away with it on a 162 game schedule.. The Texans not so much

Come Sunday.. I want them to kick ass and take names . next I expect a win a Jacksonville due to we always play them well. Then we play the Raiders.. That is the game that needs to install some hope in me that they play a team that they should beat and DO IT.

Speaking of baseball, it is funny how the Astros (Texans) start slow and finish hot and the Rangers (Cowboys) start hot and fade .

WTH?

Default Re: Win this game and all is forgiven?

Most likely not. After they got one in Green Bay last year I figured, wow, that took some guts ... maybe we don't suck after all? And then we played the Raiders.

It would make me feel much better though. A road victory against a tough divisional opponent is always something to be happy about but what I really want is to be a few games over .500 and battling for 1st in the division at the halfway mark, something I don't think we've ever done. If we are playing from behind the last half we're pretty much screwed because our schedule is much tougher then and we historically suck when something is on the line.

Default Re: Win this game and all is forgiven?

I love this team.

It kills me to see us lose. It kills me to see us come out with high expectations, just like we did last year, and get spanked.

I think this team is definitely the most talented version we've ever had. But we have to play better.

I'll be fine as long as we play a good game. If we come out and give the Titans all they can handle, I'm fine. I don't need to win to forgive them. I just need hope that the wins are going to come soon. Very, very soon.

Or I'm going to be very depressed. And still love this team but just in a very sad depressed kinda way.

Default Re: Win this game and all is forgiven?

I'm not sure I'd phrase it as "all is forgiven", but...

The Tacks came out and played one HELL of a game AT Pittsburgh. If the Texans can go to Tennessee (where they rarely win) and pull out a victory after laying an offensive goose-egg vs. the Jets at home, I'd sure be willing to cut them some slack.

I don't see it happening, but I've been wrong before and sure would like to be wrong about what I'm EXPECTING to happen on Sunday.

if they beat a good team like the Titans they are showing us they can compete. Every year is a new year so they need to go out and prove they are a good team this year. So far it hasn't been done, but I'd love to see it Sunday.

Im looking at this season as a 4 game season. If we come out of it with at least a 2 and 2 record and look competitve over the next 3 weeks I'll start beleiving in them again. Anything less than that and Im on the fire Kubiack bandwagon for the rest of the year.

I see us back at square one if we win this game. We will have won a game we expected to lose and lost a game we expected to win. The key will be what happens next do we play like crap and build on it.

That being said I will believe we are going in redneckville and win when I see it.
