How many 4 game win streaks do the Texans have in
their history?

Yeah...That's a good point...

And that, along with the opponents we'll be facing is the reason I will be sold on the team if we could pull it off.

Then, historically, there is a 20% chance of it happening.

Now ask the question, when have they done it when it
actually meant something in terms of a playoff appearance?

If they do it this year, now that it matters, then they have
shown me something.

I'm certainly not putting any money on it - and will just
be pleasantly surprised if it happens.

Don't count yer chickens and all that ya know...

For the record, I voted "Not Likely"...
Why?
1) Because Cleveland is a classic trap game. They don't have much on offense, especially if Hillis is still out. But they DO have Josh Cribbs. And it wouldn't be too crazy for Colt McCoy to get lucky and have a career day against our secondary. Okay maybe that would be crazy.

2) if "Good" Tampa shows up we'll have our hands full. They have a very mobile QB and a decent defense. If "Bad" Josh Freeman shows up and turns the ball over multiple times, we probably win.

Anyway, let's get by the Browns before we start worrying about the Buccs.

I hope we and Atlanta keep winning up until we play. That way we can get flexed into the Sunday night game that week replacing NE/IND

To answer the question though, yes I think we will be 7-3 going into the bye.

Screw it, I'm all in.

It's against my cynical nature, but I'm tired of perpetual mediocrity, tired of a decade of futility, tired of waiting for this team to pull it's head out of it's ass.

I think this team is talented enough to compete with any team in the league. It's just coaching decisions and players making plays, which is one of those intangibles that leave things uncertain.

But, as a fan, I'm ready to see a playoff game, I'm ready to see the Texans finally be relevant in the NFL.

I want to believe, so I'm just going to have fun with it.

I'm jumping off that cliff of faith!

Big improvement required here, although the only other time we only played 3 in November we went 2-1, which I'd take.

Tampa being on the road .... I could see a L there but dont expect it. The Texans are a better team than the Buc's. Depends on which offense shows up for the Texans .... the one that laid an egg in Baltimore or the one that pummeled the Tit's into submission.
Atlanta at home I think they should win ..... but they lost to the Raiders at home , tho thats a totally different team now that they lost their QB and mortgaged the future for a guy who wasnt in NFL game shape.

Until I see AJ back on the field and the Defense stops losing folks weekly, I'm skeptical of 7-3.

Well, if I bet the odds, I have to bet against 7-3, so I voted "Not Likely". I can hope, though.

Good point.

Before the season started, I said injuries shouldn't be able to save Kubiak's job. I still feel that way, but this is getting ridiculous.
