I've got a NYGiants fan at work. Everytime I tell him they slopped their way to the Super Bowl, he says, "Yeah!!, Twice, so what's your point. We'll probably do it again."

The last 6 (9 if you include the playoffs) games for NE in 2007's 16-0 run, they weren't DOMINANT at all.

Check it out for yourselves. After the 10-0 start:

Struggled vs. PHI
Refs screwed the Ravens
The PIT game was 17-13 in the 3rd
20-10 win over NYJ...Brady was horrid that day
Brady not sharp vs. ONE WIN Miami
We all know about the shootout in week 17 vs. NYG

JAX took them to the limit in the divisional round, SD had a boatload of injuries (Remember Rivers playing with an ACL tear; LT being out after 2-3 plays) and they lost the Super Bowl.

Looking for the Mona Lisa week to week just is unrealistic.

It's all about context. Chances are the score was 42-3 to start the 4th Qtr. But because Kubiak turtled up, he allowed the Tits to score a TD & almost let them back in the game.

You know as well as I do, you won't win against the better teams in the NFL playing that way.


I mean forget the fact that we did. Other than that, it's not going to happen.

It doesn't matter what I think they'll do. What I know is, if they have more points than Tennessee when the clock hits triple zero, they'll be 11-1 no matter what the game looked like or how they did it. I don't care if the final score is 2-0 or 55-54.

You can say they won't beat so and so if they play like that all you want. Nobody knows what will happen until they play the game.

A football season is brutal. You're not just going to breeze through it no matter how good you are. Guys hit a wall, hit a lull, injuries take their toll, and you've got to fight through it, hope you get healthy, catch your second wind, and finish the job.

Right now the Texans are finding ways to still win those games, games they probably shouldn't be, and would lose in a heartbeat in seasons prior. The last 2 games, 3 really, haven't looked pretty, but all 3 went in the W column. I don't see how you can ask for more than that.

It's not a league about looking good winning, it's a league about winning, period.

As opposed to what??? Quality of losses????

And what I mean by that is:

Would you rather have losses where the Texans lost but playing a good game and just coming up short.....

--OR--

The Texans scraping out wins????



I'm going with the wins, me!

Before the season, (fill in your name) "predict" the Texans will go (fill in your prediction).

One of the game they probably lose to is the Broncos on the road.
And why the hell is is that they almost let Manning come back?

Yeah, they probably lose to the Packers. But boy, never thought is would be so bad. How are they going to handle other good teams on the road?

Pretty sure they lose in Windy City, too.
But man, the offense looks so bad, stupid Schaub and his stupid INTs again.

Sure they should win against the Bills but should have score more. The spread was 10 points, and they only won by 12.

Told you so shoulda fire Kubiak and make Wade the HC. Looks how many points the Jags and the Lions scored.

Oops, wrong thread. This post shoulda been in the Irony thread; so sorry!

I've had enough of the "moral" victories.
They never got the team into the playoffs. I'll take the ugly wins all day long.

Because the GAME is the reason we are fans! At the end of the day it's still the score that matters. Besides, if I don't watch the game there would be NO reason to log on to TT

Bottom line. Would you take ugly win in SB? Or, would you rather see the Texans in hard fought game but loose? I'd seen enough of hard fought loses. I want the Texans to Win and Win it all if possible whether it is ugly or not. Doesn't matter if the game is a perfect one or not! Of course, I want the Texans to Win in strong commanding lead fashion. But, I won't complain if we win in ugly fashion. We waited long enough! Houston deserve to have a Lombardi Trophy. And, that's all I can say to this subject.

Go Texans!!!
