I got what your saying. The amount of injuries have been unbelievable, guys are being taking to the locker room or carted off the field at an alarming rate. I felt bad for the Giants during the preseason when they kept losing guy after guy to season ending injuries but this team seems to be losing a starter for every game we play

I think the lockout really did a number on conditioning. Seems like everybody's freakin' getting injured everywhere.

Uhhh................................... no.

Short answer? i don't see any close to an Aaron Rodgers type talent on this roster, & he is what makes that team roll.

Uh, I'm pretty sure that isn't what he was saying. I think he's talking about our ability to win despite our injuries...... next man up & all that.

still comes back to the transcendent talent that powers that winning though...in which case we have 1 in AJ, but he's nuetralized by the person responsible for getting him the ball. Cut off the head to kill the snake & all that..

All I know for sure is that we are not the 2010 Packers or any other team. We are the 2011 Texans....whatever that turns out to be. I don't see us winning a Superbowl this year, just like I don't agree with those who say we will barely win the worst division in the history of sports and then get our skulls cracked in to the tune of 56-0 in our first playoff game. Meh, we'll probably lose on the road to somebody really good by 7, much like the Saints game went....or we might even win one....BUT BEATING UP THE TITANS AND GOING 4-3 DOES NOT PUT US IN A SUPERBOWL. Yeah, it could happen.

Don't hold yer breath...

The Kansas City Chiefs went to the playoffs last year with a 10-6 record and by beating only 1 playoff bound team, the 7-9 Seahawks.

The Packers on the other hand, made a wild card spot with an 10-6 record while beating 3 teams that were playoff bound, Philly, NYJ and split with the Bears.

I don't think we're the Packers, but we will benefit greatly from an easy schedule.

I picked us to beat the Ravens. I was wrong. I also thought we'd beat the Titans, because the Texans do have these games where they play better when people are counting them out completely. It's right after they do that is when they get people excited to let them down again. Well, that's what they've done in the past any way. Looking at the schedule, you're right that it's pretty easy down the stretch, but this is usually where the Texans have had problems and have fallen short when it comes to separating themselves from the the rest of the league as an elite or as one of the good teams. Their schedule looks pretty easy from here on out, but I won't be surprised if they win another game or two and then lose another two in a row that they have in the bag or something. They should be able to win this division with ease though either way.
