Default Do you honestly believe we can win the Super Bowl?

I've seen it mentioned a lot in jest...

But what do you think our chances really are?

I'm soooo tempted to say yes we can win it all, but I really don't know how this team will react in the play offs. I don't know how TJ will react...How will Kubiak call the games...

Big stages have a way of bringing out the best and worst, and every play-off game will be on a big stage.

I am going to say yes....We can win the whole damned thing..

Any team that can play defense like the Texans has a punchers chance.

Default Re: Do you honestly believe we can win the Super Bowl?

For us to win the super bowl, Yates is going to have to improve. If he does, our chances are as good as anyone's. But if not, once you get to the playoffs if you don't have your best game on, you'll be one and done in a hurry.

For now, until I see more of Yates, I'm going to have to go with a big "maybe" because I've seen enough to have hope, but not enough to have confidence.

Default Re: Do you honestly believe we can win the Super Bowl?

My answer: I don't know. I've never experienced a good football team in Houston. Can the Texans keep up their high level of play beyond the regular season? How will TJ Yates play against a defense who have postseason experience? Will that all that even matter? I'm just enjoying the ride.

Anything can happen in the playoffs. We have a dominant defense, Oline, and running game if TJ can play like he did yesterday in a playoff atmosphere against the best teams in the league, then yes we can win the Super Bowl. But like I said anything can happen in the playoffs.

I don't know if we will or not.

With Schaub, I believe we can beat any team on any given Sunday. I don't know if TJ is there, yet.

But with our defense and running game and seeing the drives TJ put together against the Bengals in his 2nd start (even though Tate fumbled one away), I feel pretty good. We could go all the way.

I voted that we'd likely win one and then get bounced in the next one.

But that's just my best guess.

The truth is: anything can happen.

its been a hell of a ride, why should it end ?? We can do it and i believe we will do it, i see a first round bye, then a win, then the Championship game, and then us winning the Superbowl with a last second field goal from 52 yards.

Default Re: Do you honestly believe we can win the Super Bowl?

If you had asked me in the Pre-season, can we win the AFC South and a homefield playoff game knowing that Mario is out most of the season, AJ is out half the season, Shaub is out AND his backup Leinart, halfway through the season. We will lose players weekly to injury, and we would have the second longest win streak in the NFL at 7 straight with all these 'issues' and at the last QTR of the season we will go head to head with good playoff calibre teams at the end of the season with Yates as our 'saviour', I would have laughed.

But we HAVE won the AFC Championship with all this adversity.

So the question isn't "can we win the Superbowl?"

It should be "Why can't we win the Superbowl?"

I haven't a clue, but any given play off game. One thing I have learned is to not count this team out. I also think we can beat any team in the league except Green Bay which takes me back to any given SB.:

Yes we can. What's the difference between this team ans the Patriots first SB. Their coach was nothing more than an unknown SB winning assistant, qb was a late round draft pick game manager. Great D. Definition of team. Sounds like us

I think we need AJ to stay healthy through the playoffs to win. But I thought we need him to be healthy to get here.

That's where you lost me. Couldn't you at least make it 40 yards? Having Rackers attempt a 52 yarder for the win might make me pull a Kubiak and not watch...

Default Re: Do you honestly believe we can win the Super Bowl?

As happy as i am about how well the Texans have done this year, I believe some of it can be attributed to a soft schedule and some of it to the AFC SOuth being a weaker division than it has been in the past. They did flat out-play the Steelers early in the season, and have won a few games I didn't think they would win. However, the play-offs is a whole new season where the best teams are lined-up. I really don't think they make it past the first round, and as far as the Super Bowl goes, "No Way In HEll"
