Default POSITIVES from the Indy game.

1. If Indy because of the win loses the No.1 pick. Very big in the big picture
2. If Kubiak is reminded that you can't go far with conservative mindset. Kubiak needs to approach the Titans game as the ultimate PRACTICE. Let's see what we can do if we run the 2 minute drill. Let's try to stretch the field. Let's see what TJ does if the chains aretaken off the offense. Let's JUST SEE.

If Kubiak goes into the Titans game with the same conservative BS, then win or lose we have learned absolutely NOTHING and Kubiak is the same old Kubiak and we have no chance after the 1st round.
3. Maybe the players understand that they need to be ready to play.
4. If Kubiak puts on his thinking hat and realizes he needs to get a little more creative. Maybe start utilizing Casey again I don't know. Maybe he goes Boise State and begins to think outsice box.
5. Nobody hurt. Closer to have AJ back.
6. Maybe McNair understands how important Wade is as DC and makes him an offer he can't refuse.

C'mon help me out.

Last one We are still in the playoffs. We have a chance. Remember "Any given Sunday"

Isn't that most fans' biggest knock on him? That he IS a conservative guy?

Seems like the only time he goes rogue are bad challenges or going for it on a 4th when we shouldn't.

Default Re: POSITIVES from the Indy game.

Yeah not sure about the whole conservative thing. As a whole, I would call Kubiak a pass happy coach. If he would have thrown the ball all night while Arian only got 10 carries at 7 yards a clip, fans would be going nuts as well.

In the playoffs, I expect him to ride the run game and depend on the defense. Who in their right mind trusts a 3rd string QB? The Steelers didn't with a young Big Ben...

Rep.

So something on 790 sparked my emotions when Schaub went down. At the time, I thought worst case scenario - and I posted it on here several times:

'Kubiak finds a way to get into the playoffs, and immediately has a total meltdown where we see the S.O.S. and a losing streak followed by an embarassing one and done playoff appearance, yet gets a contract exntension due to the playoff berth.'

Welcome to my nightmare folks.

I hope he finds a way to win in January, at least twice.

The last time the Texans lost two in a row, they went on a 7 game winning streak.

That none of us saw coming, or thought was possible.

Yeah. The last time we went on a 7 game winning streak we had a bunch of (mostly) tomato cans lined up in front of us. We've just finished losing to two bad teams and will get a chance to do it again next week.

Then lets see how easy it is to conjure up a surprising win streak against playoff teams.

I dunno?
I didn't have a heart attack? I didn't throw my remote through my TV (which actually happened after one game in 1993(ish) at Buffalo)?

*Disclaimer*
I did however smash yet another remote control on the floor.

I can see you aren't ready for the "POSITIVES" thread yet.

J.J. Watt is an absolute beast, last night he was pretty much unblockable. There was a run play where he recognized that they were running the ball away from him so he abused his man with an inside move and tackled their RB for a loss. Does not sound that great but when I saw the play I was stunned. He is superb against the run, only a rookie, crashed through the rookie wall, and I believe that he is going to get A LOT better (scary).

This sums it up for me. JJ Watt showed the NFL what the future of Texans football will look like.

God bless Wade Phillips.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. This two game stretch was a "best case scenario" because we now know that without a doubt, Wade Phillips is the key to our success. If he gets a head coaching job next year, Herring is not the answer. We don't have an answer and we will have to start over again.

You hit the nail on the head Brisco. This D, and the team in whole, is on the way to bigger and better things!
As much as I want a Superbowl team right now, I know it takes time and we will be an ELITE team very soon.

If we're one and done in the playoffs, any offer Wade gets from another team for HC will be counter offered by McNair for Kubiak's job. McNair's exact words were "deep in the playoffs" when explaining the objectives Kubiak needed to accomplish this year.
