Lombardi thinks the Titans win the south? What a tool. I would suspect the Jags might be the surprise team out of the two mentioned most often in last place. They made some good defensive moves. I just don't think they have the offense to keep up with the Texans or Colts.

Default Re: NFL.com unanimously predicts playoffs for the Texans

All this talk of division title because Manning is out has me terrified.

As we've seen before, the Texans have a habit of falling down in the face of rookie and resurected QB's. Making them the favorites is the worst thing that can happen with this team.

And if anyone thinks the Colts are going to just give up and let us have the win ain't happening. If anything, they will be extra motivated to save the day for their wounded leader......

Precisely!!!! That is what scares me the most! If we don't win Sunday, I'm not coming back to this board. Can u imagine the reaction to that? And Kerry Collins has had some great games! Scary!

They added a couple of good LB.

They still don't have a pass rush and didn't do anything to a secondary that was nearly as bad as ours.

I realize anything can happen, but I think we are going to smash the Colts if we aren't turning the ball over.

If they don't have a pass rush, then what are Freeney and Mathis?

Oh, I know. Better than our guys.......

The two you mentioned get the bulk of their sacks and pressures based on the premise that the Colts are up by 3 TD's and the opposing team is playing catch up by passing a lot. Without Manning that is not happening.

They signed S Dawan Landry and traded for S Dwight Lowery, both of which are expected to start (Landry for sure). Their secondary is upgraded, although I still don't think it's very good.

Very strong is the curse of cuppacoffee.

The talking heads were predicting big things for my Irish, ranked 16 or 14 depending on who you listened to.


What happened?


If the Texans are serious about winning they will quit wasting money on high draft picks and expensive free agents. They would be better served by greasing my palm to find another team to support.

People on the Irish site I visit were drinking the blue and gold koolaid.

I will believe my two favorite teams are winners when they prove it.

Jacksonville just cut Garrard. They're in chaos.

I don't think I've ever seen the stars align for any team in this manner before. It's amost like the universe is finally saying "Here, Texans. Go do something!"

New D baby!

We might not be able to shut down Manning whenever he is ready, but we SHOULD be able to rattle some rook QBs.

We're winning the division, it's not even up for discussion here in my own private Lalaland
