Default We need to go 3-3 next 6

We would have an outside chance of making playoffs if we finish house afire.

And we'll be 5-5. Not something that I'd be happy with.

We need to win the division. Gunning for the wild card isn't the way to do this. We're third in our division as of today. Jacksonville's got the tiebreaker and the Colts are perfect thus far and are not showing any signs of slowing down.

We need to go 6-0.

Most likely the wild cards are going to come out of the AFC North and the AFC East anyway.........sorry, but like Nitro said, the only way I see us making the playoffs is by flat out winning the division. A 11-5 team could be a wild card team this year.

3-3 over the next 6 isn't going to cut it.....that's just .500 ball, which is just more of the same.

What the others said. 3-3 is a bad way of thinking unless you like .500. One at a time.

People, people, people. Why do I have to pull this out earlier and earlier every year?!

"Well, I'll start off by saying this: do not blame that game on the defense, OK? I don't care who you play -- whether it's a high school team, a junior college team, a college team -- much less an NFL team. When you turn the ball over five times -- four interceptions, one for a touchdown, three others in field position to set up touchdowns -- you ain't going to beat anybody I just talked about. Anybody. All right? And that was a disgraceful performance in my opinion. We threw that game. We gave it away by doing that. We gave them the friggin' game. In my opinion, that sucked... What's that? Ah -- Playoffs? Don't talk about -- playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game! Another game."

Default Re: We need to go 3-3 next 6

why can't we just keep our expectations realistic? one week ago posters were ready to dismantle this team, and today you're wanting them to go 6-0 on the next 6? that's not fair or realistic, and only sets up a scenario for more bench/fire/demote threads.

Seriously. If you NEED to go to Indy and win, you might as well close up shop.

The Jets and Baltimore are better ball clubs right now until proven otherwise. They play great defense and can run the hell out of the ball......that's what you need to win consistently, especially on the road.

Why.....we should've beat them last year.

It SHOULD be our goal to go 6-0 in the next 6 games, whether we do that or not doesn't really matter.....but that SHOULD be the goal. Set your goals high and you achieve more, I think that was "Second Honeymoon's" original point.....I seriously doubt he actually expects that to happen.

Default Re: We need to go 3-3 next 6

I do think we can beat Arizona, Cincy, and Buffalo. The Cards game will be the toughest of those 3 IMO, but I really don't think they are unbeatable. San Francisco could be really tough -- depending on how healthy Gore is he could dismantle us. It will be an interesting game no doubt.

Indy, well, I just hope we manage to run a winning record up over the 4 games before them. If the game is for the division lead or something I wouldn't count us out. But if we are puttering along like we were before half of this week (and like we have for the entire length of Kubiak's tenure) they will flay us. We need to establish some consistency and confidence before then to have a prayer. Tennessee showed promise -- we can overcome faulty mistakes to win on the road. It remains to be seen whether we can do that against a team that has won a game, or do it two weeks in a row.

Default Re: We need to go 3-3 next 6

For the first time in the history of this franchise, we could say this
team has the ABILITY to win against EVERY team on its schedule.
They had BETTER be aiming to win the division. The AFC South is
the toughest division in the AFC, and this team has to be BETTER THAN
GOOD to make the playoffs.

Every division winner in the history of the AFC South has won at least
11 games. Most of the time, 12 wins are required. The Texans have been
building themselves to compete with the Colts, and dammit with the
emergence of Cushing, Okoye, Jacoby Jones, we just might have enough
to beat them once or even twice.

I've been watching Demeco gush over his boy Cushing, GQ, and Pollard,
destroy receivers whether they catch the ball or not. Cushing clotheslined
Jamarcus Russell a split second after he got rid of the ball, and got away
with it.

Who'd have known that when Kubiak compared Kevin Walter to "Easy" Ed
Mccaffrey, he'd be right? Frank Bush was downright giddy when they
drafted Cushing. Comparisons of Bill Romanowski were thrown about.
In SEASON ONE, he's gotten Texans fans watching in AWE as he BLASTS
a tight end after the guy MISSES THE CATCH!

I remember in the past, the Texans would get to a ball carrier, and just
soft tackle. Cushing actually DESTROYS ballcarriers and receivers. Once
this defense plays AVERAGE FOOTBALL, this team will be good. However,
I think there's enough young talent on that side of the ball to build into
something MUCH better than average.

This team had BETTER be aiming for 6-0. Mediocrity is UNACCEPTABLE.
