Sure the Colts will "play to win". Why would they play to lose? But will they play anyone with more than a hangnail injury? Or any starter into the 2nd half? They've got a big playoff game staring them in the face. The coaches know it. The players know it. We won't see all of the starters for the entire game.

Our only chance is if Kubiak stays in Houston, where he can have his wife and kids watch the game--while Gary paces nervously in the back yard--and gets updates on our progress from his family.

Seriously, I hate myself for falling for Kubiak this year. I knew better, but the win streaks had me thinking he found a way to overcome himself.

ThaShark is probably correct: Texans get a nice lead early in the game and keep momentum into the 2nd qtr. and I can see the Colts pulling Luck and maybe Wayne too.

I just think its so sad that even the Colts, with really nothing to actually "win" still find a way to go after the "best team" in the AFC South...while the so-called best team in the AFCS lay down like severely abused livestock against the Vikes in our own home.

If that doesn't wake up Gary's kids...nothing will. Nothing.

That's sort of been what I've said about our HC for pretty much EVER.

I think maybe ultimately our HC reflects our owner, though. Great guy.....baaaaad judge of coaching talent.

Bad judge of talent? Kubiak and Smith have turned us into one of the top teams in the nfl after being the laughing stock. Your upset that were 12-3? Yes, right now were not looking very good, but lets wait till the end of the season before we fire everyone and jump off the cliff...

That's like saying "I have an alternative source of energy.....but after 1 week it crashes and can't be used anymore."

Look, it's fine. I know what we have, and it's just bumming me out. We're not cellar dwellers, so at least we have that going for us.

The Patriots game was not my barometer for us. The Vikings game was. No other game did I end up feeling the way I do now. We had a chance to win HFA and let game 16 be whatever it wanted to be....but no, here we are funding ourselves backed into a corner.

Historically, the Texans--hell, ANY Houston pro football team--just can't close out a good deal when it's there for the taking.

You guys are ignoring, willfully, the out and out HISTORY and tendency and patterns. Fine.

Even winning HFA is not the insurance this team needs. No, this team has to play a team who makes their own bad luck...when opponents take care of their business, and when those teams pinch us in the nose...we turtle up and cry.

Go ahead, rah-rah to your heart's content. I know how this ends.

Default Re: texans have to face the starters..

So much negativity here. All the playoff teams have weaknesses that can be exposed. They have good games and bad. The Texans are capable of playing a complete all around game, and they have set themselves up for success for years to come. To win in the playoffs you must play well and be very lucky.

I can list weaknesses for every team in the playoffs, and I can list reasons why they are capable of winning. There's no dominant team this year they can all lose to each other. I suggest you get behind them or you can make yourself useless and focus on elements that nobody can change at this point. Those fans can go ahead and bandwagon whatever team they wish the Texans were.

To all the rest were gettin that #1 seed and the best team in Texans history will give em hell!

I'm extremely comfy with saying this is the worst crop of playoff teams in the last decade.

Only two teams we have any kind of confidence in right now is Denver and Seattle...and Seattle, IMO, goes home after 1 week.

Voice of reason here. They have to look forward to the playoffs the following week. That's the smart thing to do. Sure, they'll come out and play first half, see how it goes. If it was us, I'd also hope we'd pull the starters. The smart play.

the history of houston pro football means nothing in relation to this team... nada... just like it meant nothing to last yrs team who came thru and played excellent ball in the playoffs.

im skeptical of this team also after the last few weeks. the only thing keepin my hopes someway up is that last yrs team lost some late season games to bad teams (panthers & colts), while playing crap before balling out in the playoffs
