    thats my prediction. this team is starting to play some good football. reminds me of the oilers when moon got here right before we started winning. we are not getting physically beat on the field(except pitt) we just havent quite found a way to win.

    3 super bowl contenders, 3 road loses. and you guys keep trying to find someone to blame. maybe find the guy who made out our schedule, start there.

    Sigh...we could actually be a good team but every week we find a way to lose.

    Some way we find a way. There is always one thing to be glad about "Oh Slaton had a good game" "Our Offense looked good" "Mario was a beast"

    But we can never be happy about the whole package. Either the Defense makes a big stop and the Offense turns around and gives it up...or the Offense makes a play and the Defense can't stop....if its not that it's Kubiak helping the team find a way to lose.

    You guys better quit being positive. Its not safe around here right now for optimist. Doesnt matter that we just lost to a playoff team on the road in overtime. We suck! Our coach needs to be fired! All our secondary needs to be cut! Havent you been paying attention!


    J/K cant wait till next week! Were going to kick ass!!!!! 13 and 3 BABY!!!!woooohooo!!

    You're watching different games than the ones I've seen. The team has not been badly outplayed in the last two games. Pittsburgh was a butt whomping, but the Texans showed improvement today.

    LOL!

    So true.

    I guess we're running the table from this point on, correct?

    At the beginning of the preseason, I was saying 9-7, outside shot at 10-6...
    After we got our asses handed to us by Dallas and Blitzburgh, I pinned us at a borerline 7-8 win team...
    but now I'm saying 8-8, outside shot at 9-7.

    It's hard for me to see us going 10-6 with the lousy defense we're throwing out there. Richard Smith has a more likely chance of getting fired then us going 10-6, IMO.

    Of course I will welcome 10-6, but only 1-2 plays/coach's decisions make the difference b/t Ws and Ls. Our division is too good and our team is so fragile historically with injuries that I just don't see this happening..8 or 9 wins would be the most I would bet on if I were a bit optimistic/homeristic. We even have bad luck as we didn't even win a coin toss:voodoo:

    I agree. Going into the season I said that 2-3 over the first five games would be a success considering those tough road games. Mother Nature threw us a curveball, but I still think this is a decent football team with upside potential.

    Once Kubiak learns game management, the Texans might start winning tough road games.

    I dig your optimisim... but is that prediction for this year? You've got 3 more losses to give. I'm not sure about Jags (or heaven help us, Titans) as superbowl contenders. I did find it interesting that there was a highlight of the Tenn game showing AJ with 4 dropped passes in or close to the end zone, I thought it was just 2?

    So, yeah - we COULD be 2-1 right now, but no team heart and no fire = 0-3.

    I'm downgrading my prediction of 7 to 9 wins this year to 6 to 8 wins after today.
