Oh yes, and you can bet we're not done losing this year. I don't expect us to win out but look at who our "rivals" for the #1 seed have left on their schedules?


In the East:

New England still has to play the Jets, Eagles, and Buffalo. Their "easy wins" remaining are Kansas City, Indy, Washington, Denver, & Miami.

The Jets still have the Patriots, Bills, Eagles, and Giants. They have easy games against Denver, Washington, Kansas City, and Miami.

Buffalo still has to play the Cowboys, Jets, Chargers, and Patriots with games against Denver, Miami, Tennessee, and Miami again rounding out their schedule.

I don't see any of those teams running the table. That division still has a lot of beating each other up to do.

In the North:

Baltimore plays Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, San Francisco, San Diego, and Cincinnati again. Easy games are Seattle, Cleveland (twice), and Indy.

Cincinnati has to play Pittsburgh (twice), Baltimore (twice), and Houston. They should be fine against Arizona, St Louis (that's what the Saints thought too), and Cleveland.

Pittsburgh still gets Baltimore, Cincinnati (twice), and San Francisco. They clean up on KC, Cleveland (twice), and St Louis. We've already beaten them though

The North also has a lot of division games where somebody is going to lose.

The West I don't even think we need to worry about (as far as the top seed goes). A team could win that division with a .500 record this year (and they say we play in the worst division in football?).

We take care of our business and good things will happen. We've never had a defense like this before. It's partly because we're playing bad teams but it's also partly because we're playing with so much intensity. We're giving these bad teams exactly what we're supposed to. Nothing.

The Texans get to visit the Bengals in Cincy soon enough ..... they are a pretty damn solid team. Quite possibly the toughest game remaining on the schedule.

I'd much rather have the Steelers beat the Ravens since the Texans have the head to head tie breaker Vs the Steelers but not against the Ravens.

If we can beat Tampa Bay this week and go to 7-3 things look promising.
I'm thinking Paper Tiger. I remember playing them a couple of years ago, when they had the 2nd best run defense in the league..... 5 or 6 games into the season. We had one of our best running games that year.

I know it's a different year & all...... their defense is most likely better, but I think our run game is as well. 10 fold.

I think they have the defense and passing attack to really threathen us. Not sure about the Panthers defense...and Cam is prone to INTs as well and our guys get INTs.
He's also prone to extending plays & hitting Steve Smith in the endzone.

If our defense was as bad as the Titans' I'd be worried about Cincy... as it is, not so much.

Hopefully we beat both of them. Just that the Bengals have shown the ability to win games and Dalton is the real deal I feel, so is Green. I saw Dunlap go down and he was all over the place...they have a really good team this year.

Agree with this. We need to secure homefield advantage for sure. It will make more of a statment than winning the divison will. I cant wait for the play-offs it will be so awesome to be able to cheer for my team in jan/feb.

The bolded is very important, I think. Yeah our schedule turned out to be pretty weak, our division turned out to be pretty weak... but it's not like we're shooting it out with any of these weak teams.

We're playing good, solid football on both sides of the ball & getting better every week.

It's the next game against Tampa Bay that worries me the most, probably because I'm not really confident in Kubiak keeping the players focused on the game with the bye coming up. I hope I'm wrong, but I think we need an in your face coach this week. If we win this game, we'll get a bye. I just hope the we don't come out flat.

The Bucs won't finish the season with a winning record.


This is a slam dunk for Kubiak.....

i feel pretty good with the way tate and foster have been running the ball. We can control the clock, Schaub dont need to force the ball. The defense stays rested. Things are looking up. I am not as concerned about focus as i used to be, we have the talent to win every week even if we have an off game.

I think under estimating Tampa Bay is a mistake ..... They are a good team playing in a tough division. Cant overlook the fact that they won 10 games last year.

And its in Tampa ... which is a big factor.

yeah i agree i think tampa is pretty good and will only get better, but i do however feel confident that tate and foster can carry us to victory. Remember we are doing all this without one of the top WRs in the NFL.

I couldn't agree more. They gave the Saints all they wanted today and as a Texan fan that's all I need to worry.

For the record, I think we have an excellent chance at having the best record in the AFC because I don't think any AFC team comes out of this season with fewer than four losses. The threats are the Steelers, Ravens, Bengals, Pats, Jets, and Bills. Fortunately there is ample opportunity for them to knock each other off and, by so doing, help us.

But that means we cannot afford more than one more loss the rest of the way. With our remaining schedule strength, that's definitely possible.

I just don't like looking past the upcoming opponent.

But that's just me.

One game at a time every week and all that but seriously, the game we should be worried about is the one after the bye. The most dangerous thing for a young team learning to deal with success is a week off to read their press and do interviews about how good they are. The scary game takes place in Jacksonville after the bye. How they deal with that will really tell us how far we've come.

I am not as concerned about focus as i used to be, we have the talent to win every week even if we have an off game.
I think Kubiak should get a little kudos for finally learning how to mix it up with two running backs. This is the kind of running game he should be calling (or whoever is sending & subbing these two guys).

Keep them both fresh, & don't wait till the game is "over" before you lean on Tate a little bit. Using Tate early & often is like throwing the change up, they are totally different runners, both very affective & deadly.

Defenses won't ever get a break.

And its in Tampa ... which is a big factor.
I had no respect for their 10 wins last year.
