    ...feeling confident about Sunday's game?

    I don't know what it is, and I guess I could be wrong, but I think the Texans are going to do well on Sunday. Really well.

    The key will be our defense. They've looked really good lately, and although we have not faced anyone like Manning, I don't think he's going to dominate them like he has in the past. We've got young, hungry guys over there who have shown a lot of discipline over the last month. Plus, they don't look intimidated by anyone.

    I'm pretty sure our offense will score- except for the Jets game, that's been the case. It'll be a little harder without Daniels, but I feel like the other receivers will step up. I'm also excited to see both Slaton and Moats involved this week.

    Just a feeling, but I think Sunday will go well. JMHO.

    I have a good feeling about the game too, we might not win it, but I have a feeling that we'll make it a very entertaining and competitive game.

    Looking forward to it! :)

    I can't get myself confident about any game for some reason. :choke:

    As well as the team has been playing lately, they still need to show me just a bit more before I can be confident in them in games like this. Consistency breeds confidence.

    All I know is we play to competetion, so at least we're playing a great team. I'm kinda worried, but not scared.

    I wish I was. I am hoping for the best... but asking this team to go 4-1 on the road with a win at undefeated Indy, which would be back to back wins on the road, a week after losing OD is asking ALOT.

    Come game time I will be as nervous as ever. A win this weekend would make me absolutely giddy.


    EDIT: Bob Sanders likely not playing this week?

    I think it boils down to defense and turnovers. Manning is going to be Manning, so "shutting him down" is not realistic. If our defense holds it's own and doesn't give up the big play and can hold the Colts below 30pts, our offense can compete with that. As long as we don't have more than one tournover we can take them.

    Yeah, they are about done with him over on the Colts message board. But still, had played last couple of weeks and I was expecting him this week shockingly enough.

    Check out the current list of injuries for Indy:

    Makes me feel a little better considering all of ours.

    We have to be plus in the turnover margin. period. We also absolutely have to contain the DE's and give Schaub enough time to pick apart the injury ravaged colts secondary.

    I was very confident going into Buffalo. Even when we started off poorly, I never felt that we were going to lose.

    This game, I feel it could go either way. Dont know how we're 9.5 point underdogs though

    Hasn't Sanders been injured the last two or three time's we've played the Colts?

    On a side bar, I didn't realize that #8 and #80 have never been on the field in the same time against the Colts.

    Yup. Missed both competitive games last year. Played in both in 2007, and missed the one we won in 2006.

    I think we've got a hell of a chance. Think about how close we were to actually sweeping Indy last year. The Rosencopter game, and we had the ball with a chance to win on the last drive in Indy.

    This will be the best Texans team Indy has ever seen. It's time to get that first win in Indianapolis.

    The real key here is that no team should ever feel too confident (to a fault) when playing the Colts. They are a very, very, very good team

    This is a game my Doctor would highly recommend me not watching if he knew the kind of roller coaster my BP rides each gameday. I might have a ambulance readily available in my driveway.

    Needless to say, I think the odds of a W is slim, but there's always that chance.
