    This game is the biggest game in FRANCHISE HISTORY!

    (according to Paul Kuharsky, ESPN Blogger)

    Given that indisputable fact, I am declaring this game a MUST WIN!!

    I will also say if we lose this game, and other teams in the division win we will only have a 2 game lead in the division and with the bye coming up we could come out of the bye week with only a game advantage over the rest of the division.

    :panic:

    Despite what I hope was my obvious mockery of such a statement, it is the biggest game of the season so far because of playoff seeding implications and because I think the team might need it for self belief purposes after getting shellacked last week.

    For my sake I hope we win it so this place doesn't turn into a house of horrors during the bye week.

    If the Texans lose this game, then by league rules we are shut out of the playoffs!

    As long as Joe Texan doesn't start the official Game Day thread again I think we'll be ok. I knew that was gonna come back to bite us in the butt.

    It's a huge, huge, huge game. The two teams that are pretty much perceived as the class of the AFC, both 5-1, both fighting for home-field, seeing what we're made of after a drubbing by Green Bay, a bit of a rematch from last year's bull**** playoff loss that we should have won handily, Battle Red, etc.

    It's a big game. Not the biggest in franchise history, which is obviously being said in jest, but damn big.

    That's why I NEVER would start a game day thread, I'm jinxed in that regard as well. :smiliepalm:

    I believe I've started one or two in the past, but I don't feel lucky enough to do it now that it counts for more. Pretty sure I shouldn't do that.

    Well yeah, that's part of it. Spotting 7 points to the opposing veteran team after scoring first and forcing a three-and-out on their next possession is not exactly conducive to winning. Then forcing three-and-out after three-and-out only for our Schaub-less offense to not do anything....yeah....

    We could have won that game even WITHOUT Schaub, but with Schaub, THAT game would have been a piece of cake. Our defense held their offense to 6 points after the gifted 7 and the gifted great field position via INT to get another 7.

    Stupid.



    ......stupid.


    Beat their ****ing asses on Sunday. **** 'em.

    This and the game against New England will probably be the biggest game of the season in retrospect.

    It's crucial we win these if we want to the road to the superbowl in the AFC to go through Reliant.
