To be honest, just the fact that someone is mentioning 'Texans' and 'undefeated' (without being completely sarcastic) gives me goosebumps.

For now I'm taking 2 games clear of the lead of the division, after only two games, with a huge divisional match-up coming up against the Tacks who must be buzzing after taking down the Lions.

Sheesh the excitement is building early this year!

The Cards finished last season wining 6 out of their last 8 (including beating the Niners), and that number isnow 9 of their last 11 (so maybe they don't really suck), and the Vikes "shredding" the Niner defense consisted of less than 200 yards passing, and a rushing number of 3.6 YPC.

Oh, and those 44 points by the Titans includes 3 Defensive/Special Teams TD's, which is one more than they got from the offense.
Hey points are points. Offense, defense, S/T... They all add to the total score.

In fact, a team that can score on D or via S/T scares me even more. It's one thing to stop the other guy's offense but to have to generate pts to make up for defensive and special teams scores just makes our offense's job harder.

They all matter when you're fighting for home-field advantage. You could still be right, though.

This is the one thing I hate from national TV recognition and winning. Overreaction with premature labels... we still have the bulk of our tough schedule ahead.... this kind of stuff is just stupid.

You can all say what you want, i'm just happy i can see every sports station mention the texans a few times every hour. We used to complain about that and now we dont want to hear it ?

Keep all the hype a coming cause i like it regardless of how early or absurd it may be.

Hype is cool as long as the players stay grounded. As soon as they believe they can't lose - lose they will.

I agree with this and the OP. Yes, there could be a let-down, but I remember 2-14 as well and we might as well enjoy this while we can. If we went 3-13, I'd at least like to enjoy these first 3 wins while I can (and, no, I'm not superstitious at all, so I'll bring up anything).

I dont agree. i think a confident team is a good team, yes you cant over look people but you go out every game expecting to win.

No, I do not think we will go undefeated. We are bound to have one, or even a couple of those games to where things aren't just going our way.

We are so good, no one can defeat us. We are not only the best team in the NFL right now, we are the best football team to have ever existed. The Texans are so good, they have been enlisted in the fight against the Martian invaders. Last word was that Foster had run through their secondary lines and Schaub had tossed a granade into a Martian ship. The Martians however intercepted the granade and tossed it back, news at 6PM.

I'm still sticking with my 12-4 prediction. But it is nice to hear people talk about this years team as an elite squad, and bee 100% serious.
