Default Worried?

I've been feeling pretty good about the team especially with the big win over the Colts. The problem I'm having now is, is the team mentally ready now? This could be one hell of a trap game for them and could lead the Skin's with something to prove after the "win" over dallas.

I keep thinking this is the Jets season opener part 2. If this team mans up and wins this game it'll be clear progress from last year.

Texans just have a way of scaring the hell out of me every game. Even if they're up 35 to 0 going into the 4th quarter, I know there is a way they could give that up.

I'm not real worried about Sundays game from a letdown perspective. The reason is the respect Kubes has for old man Shanahan and what he probably preached all week. Along with I think the win last week moves the Texans mindset from "I think we can be a good team" to "i know we are a good team" mentality. That barrier with the Colts is broken for now and should make this team believe in themselves. If their attitude is truly different this year and they are determined to win and make the playoffs this game should be a win.

I'm thinking that last weeks win over the Colts did _something_ to the team, we ganked the Colts, the sky is the limit.

Just rewatching Sundays' game over-and-over helps me notice small
things that lacked on last year's team. When Schaub threw that interception
in the second quarter while the Texans were up 13-0, I was reminded how
that type of situation would ALWAYS set off a MASSIVE scoring run
from the Colts in each of the last four games we've played them.

The difference is, they scored off the turnover, and the Texans answered them
over and over again.

The one thing I noticed from last weeks game, was their attitude.

It was different. When a penalty (for whatever) - happened, they didn't let it bother them. Other things seemed to go the Texans way instead of against them. Can't put my finger on a specific item, but my son made the comment - wow, something is actually going our way for a change.

And all those hits on MR Late hit on the QB, didn't get any calls his way for a change.

I think it is a couple of things. I think the win against the Pats last year proved something to the Texans. I think the kids have learned a lot growing up together. I think Kubiak has also learned how to become a Head Coach. I think we have an offensive co-ordinator that Gary doen't have to mentor or watch over and can spend his time in more valuable ways.

That time-out on the Colts kick-off was priceless.

I'm always worried. It could be a scrimage against a high school team and I'd be worried. LOL

The Texans are a better team than last year, we'll find out soon enough if the demons of the past are gone.

Texan fans are similar to abused dogs in the way the team has treated them with there play on the field. I am on the optimistic side most of the time and I see a new team in a new year right now. We may lose, and then go in to Reliant and kick the crap out of the Cowboys and beat the Raiders the week after that. I want 3-1 at the worst for when Cushing comes back. If we go 4-0 I think we should be expecting our first playoff game in franchise history this year. It will be interesting to see what our team does against a 3-4 defense, but I have a feeling we will be able to run the ball. The Cowboys were able to get some push on the Skin's line and they were playing without two starters.

Default Re: Worried?

The Colts win means nothing in regards to the development of this team, unless we come out tomorrow and pick up a W. After the 'Skins performances last week, anything less than a win just wont do. I wasn't putting our season's hopes on winning against the Colts, but this game coming up, is a must win in my opinion. You can lose a few games against the top opposition, but to blemish your record with loses against the likes of Washington just won't do.

So, in contract to Steph's optimism... I'm optimistic, but still worried - I fail to see how any Texans fan can purge any resemblance of worry after some of the games we've seen this team play!

Go Texans!

This game is out super bowl!!!!

(I actually hate the saying

I am gun shy on this team right now.. I (we) have seen this team beat teams that they shouldn't have and lose to teams that we had no business losing to.

I am cautious on this game and I do think the Texans should win this one..

just so I can jix this .. Kubiak and Smith are trying to extend their record to 2-0 over Shanahan


however;(and as silly as it sounds) , I am VERY superstitious, but I will be wearing the same clothing (washed of course) as I did last week .. my white Texans t-shirt and blue shorts and my steel blue Texans hat that a friend of mine gave me

and dang it I can't throw the stupid shirt away! I must keep the precious!

Here's what stands out to me that suggests that "something" has happened to our Texans. Other than Matt Schaub and Jacoby being a bit off, the team was incredibly efficient. This is a well coached, well practiced football team. The confidence is there now and I don't see the staff having a down week from a preparation stand point. Basics like blocking and tackling seem to be completely under control. Last time I checked that was a winning combination.

I think the worst that can happen is we get our asses handed to us in the first half and we wake up at half time and we hand it right back to them to win the game!
