Default The 2 teams we beat have a combined record of 1-9

Not sure if anyone has mentioned that however that just crossed my mind when Winston on the radio was talking about how big the Titans win was.

Sure, at the time it was however now that they are 0-5 it doesn't look that impressive.

Yep. It would be nice if they were 4-1. OK, not really.

Well when we beat the Bengals, it will look a little brighter.

It's crossed my mind......I mentioned it a week ago when somebody was talking about how we're going to just walk into Cincy and beat that team...

They have a MUCH better defense. They're also 3-1 (only loss coming on a fluke play) with quality wins against the Steelers and Packers.....we're 2-2, with victories over a 0-4 Titans team and a 1-3 horrible Raiders team.
http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/sho...rs#post1269246

We have NO quality wins this year. Yes the Titans win was nice, but looking back on it...that's not even a quality win. They got blown out a week ago, by a team that got slaughtered 41-0 this past Sunday.

Other than the Jets game; we haven't exactly been blown out either. 2 weeks of much better defensive play have me optimistic about our teams chances. Whine as much as you want but 2-3 isn't 0-5 or 0-4 like last year. 11 more games and the team isn't regressing.

Dallas is in the same boat before this past week they hadn't beaten a team that has won a game. And they almost lost to the winless Chiefs.

At least we're not the Redskins. The teams they've played (besides the Giants) are a combined 2-17. The two wins were against them.

I dont care who we beat as long as we have enough W's to get into the playoffs. This isn't the BCS, you dont get extra points for strength of schedule.

Just beat whoever is in front of you and I dont care if you win ugly...just win.

Adding to the thread a little, the teams that we lost to have a combined record of 7-7.

Overall, we have had a pretty easy schedule. Our opponent's combined record is 8-16 and we still have a losing record. Taking the Texans out of the equation, our opponent's overall record is 5-14.

Edit: didn't get the numbers right at first. Cough and cold medicine is taking its toll.

It's good when it comes to the record and working toward winning the division, but that's not what this thread is about...

I never understood people's inability to understand the meaning of some threads. Why do people insist on replying to a thread like this by saying that someone is whining for posting a fact that creates interesting discussion?

Using our opponent's record is a way to grade our performance relative to our competition. Is that really such a bad thing to be doing?

Didn't you start a thread yesterday discussing how the Bengals beat some top teams from last year, and how they barely beat Cleveland?

In trying to find out just how good we are, who we beat is not relevant? Did you not do the same thing to determine how good the Bengals are?

Standings? Since when does standings matter to the Houston Texans? They've never mattered in 7+ seasons, and with the Colts running away with the division and a wildcard that will probably take a 10-6 record or better, I don't see standings mattering much this year, as well.

I guess any take not bright and happy is considered "whining" to the Sunshine Club.
