Man, if we went 18-1......this would have to be embraced by everyone (not just us) as being one of the best Super Bowl champion teams in the modern era.

No doubt. The adversity, the OT wins. The road wins. The dismantling of the Ravens. Fo sho.

No other team out there can do what we're doing: Getting behind then winning in OT. We're The Cardiac Kids of the NFL. It's a badge of honor right now. I love it.

But there's room to improve
. Even our own players are less happy about things than most fans here are. They are genuinely expressing that they have faults and need to tighten things up, they're being more honest than a lot of us here are.


I'll tell you who I am absolutely in awe of, it's Matt Schaub. Hands down this guy is fugging relentless. Grinding. Persevering. Willing this offense to succeed. Dude is on a mission. I think the guy is holding our schit together.
Agree with the bolded; especially the underlined. Looking for more consistent pressure from Barwin and Reed. Fewer brainfarts from the secondary (see Kubiak's statements about last week's game). More production from Walter and more snaps for K-Mart. I'd like to see Grimes get a few snaps too. And speaking of RBs, Tate needs to get healthy and back to last seasons form.

Yeah... there is always room for improvement.

Not at all ....


This team has its flaws but ... complaining about the coach all the time is just silly.

You give up 30 in the NFL , you expect to lose. The fact that the offense has been able to generate just enough to win those two games despite the teams flaws and all the guy's missing on the defense ... says a lot about the team as a whole including their coach.

The players believe in him .... thats what matters.


Guess we need something to complain about while we're winning ....



Oh , did I mention we learned Shayne Graham is a liability ??

Default Re: So what have we learned thru 11 games?

I think we've learned it's a team game. The defense carried them in a couple games early in the season. Now the offense has to carry them to wins. The special teams has been so inconsistent all year though. Whatever it takes to win the 1st seed in the AFC.

Beat the Titans and Patriots in the next two games and at 12-1 they should just about have it wrapped up. May need a win or two against the Colts (two games) and Vikings the final three games of the season. We'll see. It would be nice to rest players in some of those games. I hope the Chargers beat the Ravens this Sunday.

Im surprised by the negativty.texans are garenteed playoffs this year and all they can do is complain. There is alot of teams that would ltove to be j10 1. well if your team is as bad as some of these "fans" doom threads say then patriots will lay 50 on you. If the texans beat the patriots or at least keep it close. You can safely say texans have as good chance to go to no then anyone

Right, I think most of us are this way & has said so much today. The ones with the problem, are the guys saying everything is wrong, the coach sucks, the defense was exposed, we're not going far in the play-offs.

What I've learned is that if needed Schaub can put up fantasy numbers if that's what he is called on to do. That's not our game plan or our type of football anymore but it's on tap if need be. I'd rather foster control the game with some shorter passes to the TE and the occasional bootleg deep, but I like the alternative capability
