I'll trade you my Rex Grossman, Trent Dilfer, Kerry Collins, Brad Johnson, Matt Hasselback, and Chris Chandler cards for your TJ Yates card?

I'm keeping the Jake Delhomme because his Super Bowl experience may come in handy for the Texans this year.

TJ Yates is a rookie. He has started 4 games. He's 2-2 as the starter.

Rex Grossman was in his 4th season. He'd had 25 starts. That Super Bowl season he was 13-3 as the starter including playoff games.

Trent Dilfer was in his 7th season. He'd had 86 starts. That Super Bowl season, he was 10-1 as the starter including playoff games.

Kerry Collins was in his 8th season. He'd had 83 starts. That Super Bowl season, he was 14-4 as the starter including playoff games.

Brad Johnson was in his 9th season. He'd had 79 starts. That Super Bowl season, he was 12-3 as the starter including playoff games.

Matt Hasselbeck was in his 7th season. He'd had 78 starts. That Super Bowl season, he was 15-3 as the starter including playoff games.

Chris Chandler was in his 13th season. He'd had 103 starts. That Super Bowl season, he was 15-1 as the starter including playoff games.

No, not at all. I've posted several times in this thread, that it's not about one fan being a better type of fan than another.

In that one post you quoted, I tagged on along to a shot Premier made at CarrBomb.....

Of course they say that... Few fans actually fully read the articles or for sure not even see the games. They just regurgitate what they have heard in sound bytes here and there so who cares who they say that want to face. I am sure the Steelers, Falcons and Bengals all thought the same thing. "Easy Win" right?
Why would any of those teams have thought the Texans were an easy win when they were playing one of the best teams in the AFC record wise??? I don't even think that the Texans or their fans thought that the Colts would be an "easy win." They did "expect" the Texans to win though since the Colts are like 1-50 and they're being led by Dan Orvlosky who pretty much stinks. Sorry, but I'm just not seeing the correlation between the Texans match up with the Colts and the Texans match up between all of these other teams that the Texans had to face.

Do You Believe We can Win the Super Bowl?
This question is worded in a very interesting way.

"Can" being the operative word.

The Titans are a long shot to get in the playoffs, and technically they can win the Super Bowl, simply because anything is possible within the potential candidates that make the playoff cut.

So yeah, the Texans can win the Super Bowl, just like 12 teams that make the playoffs can win the Super Bowl, as well.

"Will they win the Super Bowl?" is how TK should have worded it, simply because that's a true dividing line for the sunshine pumpers.

I wonder how many koolaide kids would still vote "yes" if the word "can" was changed to "will"...

ANd don't think for a second that it wasn't worded like that on purpose.


I firmly remember TK stating that he wanted Kubiak gone if the Texans didn't go to the AFC championship or more this season. That was his barometer, but of course I'm sure that he'll claim that he never stated that or that his words were being misinterpreted. It's funny now at the end of the season and we're seeing completely different stances once again.

Of course. TK is playing his best jedi mind game tricks with the wording of it.

It's not really applicable to believe if something can happen. Belief really applies to if it will happen in your opinion. The question is not valid to me as a result.

I did not ask the question wrong. The distinction you made is correct.

I definitely didn't intend to seperate the sunshiners from anyone. We all love this team.

The term "believe" is not applicable to mathematical possibilities, which is what the "can" implies.

Your question is illogical to me.

But, I understand intent, which is why I talk in the thread but refrain from participating in the poll.

I'm not asking if you think we'll lose, fall on our face, go one & done, but hope you are wrong. If this is you, you don't believe.

When Brian Cushing is holding up that Lombardi as the Super Bowl MVP & he says, "Nobody gave us a chance, Nobody thought we could win it all."

Will he be talking about you?

If andre johnson is healthy and plays to his ability he opens up our offense and we have a very good chance. We have to protect TJ yates as well so we have to control Terrell Suggs he is going to be a beast but the Ravens Secondary is average except for Ed Reed so we have to be careful but I think that we have a good shot at this game.

I am pretty sure Brown did not allow Suggs to get to Schaub last game, hopefully he can repeat that....

Brown did not allow a sack, but there were two plays that I remember vividly where Brown lost contain & Matt had to add lib..... one I think he was stripped of the ball.

Every Texan needs to step it up if they want to win this game. They can't play as good as they did last time, even Jacoby who had a really good game.... they all have to step it up a notch.

THis is their Super Bowl, gotta leave it all on the field.
