Default What are the odds of beating Tennessee?

We might have to face them in a first round playoff game if Cinnci or NYJ don't get in. If we play run only again, we are going to be toast next weekend. Everybody knows Kubiak doesn't want Yates to throw the ball more than 1 yd downfield, but the Tittz might hammer us if we don't. Back to back losses to the Tittz would be unbearable. It could happen.

Well, using recent history for a guide...

Colts dominated the Titans -- 20-6 with less than 4 minutes to go.

Colts just nipped the Texans at the end of the game.







Sooooo ........ we have a chance.

Not if we played on offense like we did last night. We haven't scored more than 20 since Schaub went down. The offense needs to get its act together or we are going to be embarrassed at home in the first round.

What I'm saying is that a win or a loss may dictate who the Texans' first opponent will be.

At this point we're playing for pride. We DO NOT want to go into a playoff game on a 3 game losing streak. Our egos were heavily inflated and we were feeling pretty good and a rookie QB for the Panthers and our former 3rd string QB just popped it with a knife.

We're playing because our team still needs to learn to not let up when you have your opponent down and your foot on their neck.

Not sure where you get the "back to back loses to the Tittz" from. My memory tells me we stomped their guts out 41-7 in week 7 this year, and we did it in their house!

Agreed, but lets not forget WHO we are playing, I could see Bud "implying" to the players to intentionally injure some key players (as if enough aren't down as is) just to crush that much more hope of us being more than one and done.

I'm worried more about what that dirty SOB organization has planned than as stands now would be a potential meaningless win/loss.

The Texans should know entering the game if they're still in the hunt for a bye. If not, i would like to see them treat this game as if it were preseason. Foster and Aj on the bench. Give Yates a half, and let him run some 2 minute drills. Let Jake get the snaps in the 2nd half. Get guys like Braman, Maehl, and Harris plenty of pt. Most importantly, don't risk an injured player.

Default Re: What are the odds of beating Tennessee?

Honestly they are playing for pride and momentum more than anything.

They just lost to the Colts, a team that won one game before. The only 10+ win team to lose to a 1 win team, etc etc.

This is pretty embarrassing. Now folks are saying you (as in a Texan player) are just first round fodder. You can't do it. I'm even hearing the whole "They only won the division because Manning is hurt." trash i've heard before the run. (Like the Texans have had no major injuries...) I think they'll be fired up for this game.

I know. I know. I know. But the Saints went into the playoffs they won the Super Bowl losing three straight.

I'm not sure how important it is to get into the playoffs with momentum.

I like this line of thinking. But, Gary Kubiak is in need of the reps as much as anyone on the team. Dude needs to learn how to win.

I agree with everyone, that the last two are on him... but I also think the 10 wins are on him as well (but that was with a different team).

He needs his team out there & he needs to figure out how to win.
