Trying not to get too low or get too high.

Seems like good advice. It's working for the Texans this year so I figured I'd give it a try.

I said it in another thread, I'll say it again here. AP will get his yards and Houston will get the win.

The road to the Super Bowl goes through Houston this year.

I had a similar thread week or two ago and most response was Oilers and Kubiak being conservative. Still I agree with you, not as big a deal as I thought it would be to others. I've been in stores this week and did not see one Texans shirt, jersey or cap.
Maybe this weekend? 13 & 2. How sweet it is!

I think a lot of flaws have been exposed inrecent weeks , andafter the NE beat down , I think many fans realize that this team isnt the invincible machine it looked like earlier in the season - before injuries riddled the defense.


Not to mention the offenses inability to sustain drives or convert them into to touchdowns - see the 5 FG's in 6 attempts against the Dolts.


Take a look at the 105 yards some no name back put on them last week .... and the thought of facing AP isnt something Im looking forward to.

If they werent at home , I'd really be concerned.

No cause I'm not comfortable with the way we are playing and I'm worried that it'll carry into the playoffs.

Guarded? Nah, just busy. Plus, I have very little concern over this game. The Texans are going to whoop the Vikings, Duane Brown is going to flatten Jared Allen, and HFA will be secured. I'm not worried about anything until the playoffs.

I do not want to see Jared Allen injured as much as I think he is dirty but I sure would like to see DB punk him. Will be a tough match up.

I'm cautiously optimistic........ I think I'll be able to breathe and relax a little bit once this game is over should we win. There's this little guy that we're playing against who wears #28 that has me somewhat nervous though. I hear that guy is pretty good.

I actually think we've been getting better since the Tennessee game. I know it's "shocking" to consider the Patriot game as "better" But that's where I'm at. We're getting better & will be playing our best football 3 to 4 weeks from now.

He needs 294 yards to break the record? Even on his best Cyborg day he won't run for 294 on us. He'll probably run for 150 & two scores (I doubt it), but that won't be enough for the Vikings to beat us at home.

Default Re: Why is this place so guarded?

There isn't a dominant team in this league.
The Broncos caught a few breaks against the lowly Raiders and the quasi-second teamers on defense of the Ravens.

A Raiders defenders' eyes got too big dreaming of the pick six he dropped the ball.

On the other hand, the Broncos got lucky when the opponents threw a pick six in the red zone, or the QB threw into double coverage while not even pressured.
Or the QB (flacco) fumbled the ball on a sneak.

When Holliday fumbled the ball, they didn't lose it (once in each game).

The Pats let the Niners walked all over them to a 31-3 lead.
They also struggled against the Dolphins recently, a team that we beat handily.

No, there's no guaranteed win in the play-offs (or at any time).
The fun is the journey itself.

Why would you want a team full of stars that dominates
everybody?

If you do, there's one on the east coast you may want to cheer for; that "dream" team, if you know what I'm talking about.
