The playoffs haven't even started, but you can just sense that this team is slated for a disappointing finish.

Ahh, the joys of the NFL in Houston. All hat and no cattle.
no offence but its easy to be that 'intuitive' when 31/32 teams have disappointing finishes to the season every yr

Yeah, those days sucked. I agree with SheTexan. Enjoy the ride. You can still critically analyze past games, but let's not lose sight of how great this season has been for our franchise. Hopefully it only gets better!

Yes, I do. I don't understand why there's so much hostility over these last few games when you consider the entire season. Sure, we need to be hot right now and all, but we have like two weeks to be ready for that at home. We're going to be in a great position to get a win and try to get some momentum. I hate some of the things I've seen on the field as of late just like anyone else, but I think this Texans team has shown enough resilience this year to feel like they can turn it around and get back to dominance. Will they do it? We'll see, but we'll be at home in game one.

LOL my friend!! I know EXACTLY who the naysayers are.

It's JUST A GAME, ya win some and ya lose some, BUT, you never give up believing you can win it all, that's what being competitive is all about.. I would rather have a little "blind" faith, and be accused of being a "homer" than be miserable because my team lost a game or two they should have won. NO NFL team is EVER picture perfect, NONE of them, not even the undefeated Dolphins back in the day, and many have gone on to WIN the SB with less then steller records than we have. (Giants 2011!!)

Until it's all over, I'll choose to BELIEVE we have as much of a chance to make it to NOLA as anyone else. If I can't believe that, then why watch the games in the first place! JMO!

I know what you mean, but I do not begrudge people for gripping about things.

This is a city that is desperately hungry for an NFL championship, and I think all of this negative emotion is born from the basic fact that fans really care about this team. Everyone has a different way of expressing those emotions and, due to our city's history, many fans have been conditioned their whole lives to expect disappointment.

I think people really want to believe in this team, but there are some troubling signs that cause doubt.

And, always remember, forums and talk radio only represent about 0.01% of fans. The vocal fans are loud, but we are really a very small minority of the whole. Most folks I talk to day in and day out are really excited about this season and pumped up for the playoffs.

Default Re: 8 Texans made the Pro Bowl

My reputation as an optimist and a Kubiak defender is nearly unparalleled.

I see plenty to be worried/frustrated about right now. I differ from many in that I don't get angry about it, but this team clearly has taken some steps back the past month or two.

I'm quite concerned about the game on Sunday because we haven't played a good game on either side of the ball since Thanksgiving (when the offense showed up). I'm hopeful the team can turn it around. I can see this team getting to the Superbowl as the #1 seed. However, it would be miraculous for this team to win three playoff games (2 on the road) as the #3 seed. There simply is no evidence since the Cushing injury that this team has what it takes to beat three good teams in a row.

So, Sunday is very big, IMO.

Regardless, it has been a good season and I love where the organization is headed... (11-12 picks this year, dead money off the books, lots of young players). Still, for those people desperate for a championship, this year's window looks a lot smaller than it did two months ago.

Not true. Many teams are happy to simply make the playoffs. But a little over a week ago the Texans were overwhelmingly favored to be the #1 seed and at least slightly favored to be the AFC representative in the Super Bowl. Expectations were different for the Texans than for those 31 other teams
