Default Texans get chance to prove they’re not just average

If I’d told you back in August that the Houston Texans would be playing for first place in the AFC South in late October, chances are you’d have been impressed, and they’d have been elated. Seeking the first playoff berth in their 10-year history, the Texans – a.k.a. The NFL’s Biggest Tease – would savor a division title as much as any team in major professional sports.

And if I’d told you the Texans would be 3-3 after six games, with a pair of road defeats to first-place teams? You’d have rolled your eyes and said, “Some things never change.”Despite their apparently unshakable allegiance to mediocrity, the Texans have a realistic path to salvation. When Houston takes on the 3-2 Tennessee Titans in Nashville on Sunday, it will have an opportunity to seize control of a division that is shaping up as this season’s slightly less atrocious version of the 2010 NFC West.

I'm sorta tired of talking about it. Gonna take the jet ski out in the morning and watch Ballunar. I enjoy watching the hot air balloons floating across Clear Lake. Then college ball most of the rest of the day. Then SUnday Texans will kick some Titan butt and all will be well in my world.

By my calculations, they've had 159 chances to prove this.

IF we are 3-4 this time tomorrow night, I'll still be a TEXAN fan!!

I could post all the negative feelings, but, no reason to do that, cause everyone on this board already know what they are. Until then, I'm gonna keep on believin that we're gonna kick some meatballs asses right there in their own stadium, and that this time tomorrow I'll be ONE HAPPY TEXAN FAN!!

For whatever it's worth:

On Extra Points, Kenny Hand and Charlie Pallilo just picked the Titans to win. Barry Warner cheated and picked the Texans to win if their offensive line takes control.
