People need to understand that we won the AFCS without a lot of competition in the division.

Yes, we are in the playoffs. No, we aren't going to the Super Bowl, because the road to Indy is going to require beating the Steelers, Ravens and/or the Patriots. Highly unlikely.

Already beat the Steelers.

Played the Ravens tight until late on the road.

Patriots have the worst defense in the league. Texans have the best defense in the league.

If the AFC playoffs are hosted in Reliant.....

Slim to none.. As an aside, I heard Slim packed his bags and left town.

No, seriously I hope we make a nice playoff run, but I think the odds of us running the "proverbial playoff table" is not gonna happen.


That said, I would love to be hella wrong!!

Either way... GO TEXANS!!

And beat the Steelers as well as other playoff contenders in Atlanta and Cincy , while playing two top contenders in Baltimore and New Orleans very close on the road.

Patriots have the best QB in the league with more rings than Yates has starts. If it comes down to that, I think I'll go with Belichick and Brady. The enthusiasm is admirable, but I don't see us getting past any of these teams in playoff time. These represent the top tier of the NFL other than Green Bay.

IMHO, the Ravens are our biggest test in the playoffs. Ain't no way NE or Putzburgh can beat us in the playoffs. NE's D is too suspect and Big Ben will be slaughtered by our pass rush. Baltimore will be tough as hell.
As far as the NFC goes, SF would be the biggest test. I think we match up very, very well against GB, NYG, and NO. No way does NO get 2 wins on us. Especially not after a full season in Wades defense.
If we can get past the Ravens, by hook or crook, we could very well be defending SB champions this time next season.

I honestly believe we should not be speculating this early.

I am too superstitious to vote in these polls.

Of course they can. The playoffs is exactly when their experience will become a huge advantage.

It's great that we got a playoff slot however. That is a great step in building a title contender over the next few years.

Texans beat Patriots, 34-27, at Reliant Stadium, January 3, 2010

Brady was 17/26 for 186 yards, no TDs, 1 pick, 70.4 rating

His magic Super Bowl rings must not have worked for him that day. Weird.

Champions are made (forged) in the play-offs.

I think Rick, Gary, & Wade (even though I would have been perfectly fine with all three getting fired last season (thankfully only Wade was)) have done a wonderful job putting together a team of high character ballers.

These guys are just going to blossom & explode.

I think we'll be the team of the next decade.

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

I honestly believe that we can beat Carolina. Following that I honestly believe that we can beat Indianapolis and I don't see any reason not to believe that a 12-3 team can't beat Tennessee at our own house (assuming we have something to play for and attempt to win it.

If the Texans enter the playoffs as a 3 seed (or better yet one of the top 2 seeds) with a 13-3 record then I believe that we can win a playoff game at home. That's not all that much of a stretch is it? Our house and insanely loud? Why not?

That's what it would take to put us in the AFC Championship game if we are one of the top two seeds. If that's the case and we find ourselves in the AFC Championship game having done all it took to get there then I think we belong and I will concede nothing to whoever we play.

Win that and we're in the Super Bowl. If we get to the Super Bowl then we belong there and we have as good a chance of winning it as anyone.

Actually they worked pretty well for him that season. They went to the playoffs after that meaningless game. We went home.

If it had been meaningless, Brady wouldn't have been on the field.
