    Yep, this VY love (positive and negative) and fandom malaise is tired.

    I predict that the players will come out fired up for this one.

    We all know that the only time that Gary gets a team ready is when that seat gets hot.

    I phrase it a different way but I think we mean the same thing.

    Gary coaches a team that can't play like they have a pair until they've been punched in the sack a few times. We should by all rights get a good effort Sunday from them.

    Or another way to put it is that they play their best with their back to the wall.

    I guess the question is why do they wait until their back is to the wall?

    +

    Especially after they have eliminated themselves from the playoffs.

    No sense of urgency for 16 weeks, hence, 8-8.

    Actually, the Texans remind of the stunts my son used to pull when he was in high school. He would deliberately blow off daily assignments thinking he could make up his grade on tests. Except when the end of the semester came around he found out he missed too many assignments and needed a 100 on the final to make a C in the class.

    To me this has been the Texans the last 3 years. It frustrated me then and it frustrates me now.

    I used to yell and scream at him and I do it now. Except I'm taking a new tactic from here on out. Apathy. If the Texans don't care about their final grade, why should I?

    *bump*

    As others have stated, I think the Texans come out fired up, but in the end: FAIL.

    Maybe I'm in a small minority, but I honestly think that the Texans could pull out a win next Sunday. It's just like them to lose to the Titans on MNF but come back with focus an intensity against the Colts. Indy has been lucky to win some very close games this season. It's not like they are dominating teams like they did a few years ago. Plus, you know, it's not like they have VY or something. It's just Peyton Manning. ;) hehe

    I believe the Texans are capable of winning, but the reason I say FAIL is because I think the Colts are in the Texans heads right now.


    Lawdy, prove me wrong Texans. I will gladly eat crow.

    yeah, I'd speculate that there are lots of things rolling around in their heads right now...

    Please, please, please don't let this game come down to a Texans FG!! :gun:

    I predict a Texans win. Like many have said here, it seems that this would be a typical win in Texans fascion. They'll lose one or two close ones that they should have won and have us all pissed and then they'll win a big one. We should have been able to beat INdy last game. Several teams have had INdy on their backs and somehow Indy crawled away with the win. I think this is a very winnable game, and I think we take this one.

    Texans will be playing to save not only their season but Gary Kubiak's job.

    The Colts can pretty much take us out of the playoffs with a win. I know they would rather face a Jags or Dolphin team. I hate to be debby downer but I don't have a good feeling about this game.
