Smile Will the Texans be 7-3?

Wouldn't that be a nice looking record heading into the last six games?

7-3... 7-3It's almost hard for me to imagine. 7-3

I'm a little nervous about both of these games coming up....If either of these teams play well they will be tough outs.

Especially Tampa, in Tampa.

If we can win these next two games and end up 7-3 I will be convinced.

I'm predicting 8-3 heading into the Atlanta game. The Tampa game will be tough, but I think we can win it if we take care of the ball.

Honestly, I think we'll be 6-4 at the break. But if we are 7-3, I'll have to start mixing more of the koolaid in my Sunday coffee.

Perhaps, but only if they first concentrate on being 6-3.

We are 5-3 right now.

If we win the next two games you're going to be convinced that we could be 7-3?

That's really sticking it out there Rey.

What I'm saying is that if we can win the next two games (one at home and one away) against two good opponents that will be 4 wins in a row....

If we can beat Cleveland at home this weekend and then remain focused and determined enough to go into Tampa and beat the Bucs I will be convinced that this team is ready to make make some noise in the play-offs this year and in the future...

Right now, I'm kind of skeptical about when the 'Bad Texans' will show up...

Put it like this...If we can win the next two I will feel more comfortable heading into games from there on out...

Thankfully, halfway through the season the we haven't had a true "Bad Texans" moment where we get demolished for the entire game. Last year against the Cowboys and Giants was embarrassing.

i would never say definitely when it comes to wins for any NFL team this season. I put strong possibility because our schedule is getting softer and Dre should be back soon.

I voted "strong possibility" as well. There is no doubt in my mind this club will play well in the AFC Championship game this year. I've been thinking that all year.. (That's been my expectation for this team the last 3 years)

Still, after the Oakland game, I threw out making predictions, anticipating scores, or marking up W-Ls before the games.

I have no idea if we're going to finish 9-7 or 13-3, but I'm pretty sure we're going to win the division. I don't know how we're going to get there, & from that stand point I'm just going to enjoy the ride.

This team always finds a way to spit the bit.

7-3, only a slim chance.

I see another raiders-type game coming.

Default Re: Will the Texans be 7-3?

I voted strongly possible, the team should definitely win the next two games, I'll be dissappointed if they don't.

The thing is that we have now hit November and that is the Texans' cursed month, what is our November record under Kubiak? All I know is that its really bad.

As for the previous statement that we've yet to see the 'bad' Texans for an entire game, that is true, but we've definitely seen the 'bad' Texans for periods throughout games, never long enough to leave us completely out of the running, but they've sure shown themselves on a number of occassions.

The one positive from that is whereas for the last few years, if the D was having a good game, they were simply able to slow the opposition down a little, and it was always up to the O to keep us in the race (and when they failed it was all over) Now, we have a D that has the ability to completely shut down the opposing O until our own gets its act together and puts points on the board.

That gives me hope.

I really feel for you mate, if you honestly feel that bad about this team, why do you bother? I hope you are a WUM because it would be massochistic of you to actually care about this team given your negative outlook.

@Tampa
vs Atlanta
@Cincinnati

three remaining games on our schedule with winning records.

@Jacksonville
vs Carolina
vs Tennessee

These games can go either way.

Cleveland
Indy

Are probably the only "real" "should win" games.

10-6, win the division and be competitive in the
first playoff game -- that's what I expect and would
consider a good season.

specially with all of the defensive injuries.
