    To finish the season 11-5 as the hottest team going into the playoffs... whose with me? I know I'm a crazy :homer: but look at the schedule..

    Indy
    @Jax
    Sea
    @Stl
    @Mia
    NE

    If the Patriots have the 2nd spot in the AFC sewed up by that week 17 game and don't play the 1st teamers all game, I think its possible. What better game to ignite a big win streak than one over the Colts this Sunday?

    I know I'm nuts but it makes me happier being delusional than miserable.

    Everyone try to have a not-so-miserable Thanksgiving.. Go Texans!

    If we can beat Indy why would you be worried about playing NE's starters?

    Lets take it a week at a time first lets take care of INdy at home

    anything is possible ....... :P

    if we do beat indy tho

    Jax will be tough at home but if we win that

    Maybe we can get a game win streak SEA at home does not scare me STL a trap game and MIA will be another big test not bigger then JAX on the road tho if we have a 5 game winning streak then the NE game will be our biggest game ever

    My concern would be NE having to win that one to get the 2nd seed and a bye the first week, in which case they'll be playing week 17 like a playoff game. I'd rather see a NE team thats clinched that bye before our game and takes it easy rather than one trying to clinch the 2 seed.

    thats what iam saying

    Either way history shows its best to play NE at the end or start of the season and at home ..... being at home is so much better then playing up there

    This team winning 6 games in a row when Kubiak has proven he can't win more than half the games he coaches? I'm not buying. It would be nice, but it ain't happening.

    Crazy talk.

    In the Rosencopter game I was running around my front yard nekkid, screaming "Go Texans!" going into the 4th quarter, then they ripped my heart out. This was a back and forth game that could have gone either way.

    Lol. With Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Miami, and New England on that schedule, I'm not buying anything less than 1-3 for those four teams. We totally suck. We're close to being a contender but almost everybody else is too. Seeing the Dolphins go 1-15 to the playoffs in one season says it all for me.

    Put together a 5 win streak then MAYBE and I mean JUST MAYBE I'll start talking about a six game winning streak heading into the playoffs.

    Get 'er done and we ain't getting 'er done.

    Well, we did go 5-1 to close out last season. We can always hope for a repeat.

    Of course our schedule this time around isn't exactly Cle, Jax, GB, Ten, Oak, Chi either.

    we are the best team in the league when there is nothing to play for. Closing "strong' is overrated if you don't do it in the playoffs. Otherwise it's hollow and shallow, like Kubiak's game plans.

    I'm past depression and anger. I'm now beginning the acceptance stage. We suck. I did not go home angry. I actually kept chuckling sadly the entire drive home. It is what we are. We did exactly what we always do when it counts. Lose.

    I started the thread because I think we're being hypersensitive. It wasn't the Super Bowl. IF and thats a big IF, but IF we can end this season the way we've always seemed to, then a 6 game win streak is possible. Heck, 5-1 or 4-2 could still get a playoff birth. You never know week to week who could be lost to injury. Who'd have thought the Steelers would be hanging on a thread with Roethlesberger's concussion situation? He's a tick away from never playing football football again. Just let the season play out. Crazier things have happened.

    This is about the time last year that we went 5-1 under some Kubiak motivation (whatever that is). Let's do it again!! Amirite?

    I think we'll see the Texans with a winning record at the end of the year, but they'll still be home watching the playoffs.

    I'm so tired of hearing this.

    We didn't lose yesterday, three weeks ago, or any game this season, because we were playing a better team.

    It's a mental thing. Swagger, Intensity, Fire, heart, whatever you want to call it.


    This team needs to understand that they aren't playing for a play-off spot, this is their play-offs right now.

    Win or go home from here on out.
