    Pretty wild to go eight years without a playoff berth and then have a fairly respected member of the media throw his hat into the ring with your name on it.

    The NFL might as well call off the 2010 season. We already have it wrapped up.

    THIS is nice to hear. I've seen where other media-types have predicted Houston to go far but it didn't mean squat because it doesn't mean squat when they bash the Texans. Tom Jackson is a guy I like and respect. If he say's that it carries some degree of weight with me. :fans:

    I like it, and that's the same thing I've been thinking Packers & the Texans, and Houston wins it all.

    Buy your tickets now. At least put some money aside for two play-off games.

    In recent years somebody was always hying the Texans for the playoffs before the season starts. We'll see Sunday if this year is gonna be any different than past years when the hype dies off verry quickly after the season starts ?

    Golic picked the Texans for a wild card this morning on Mike and Mike. Greenberg had Tennessee winning division on a tiebreaker over Indy. He said he was considering Tennessee and us for the slot but went with them.

    And Tom Jackson hasn't been so nice to us in previous years.

    All this means is if we don't make it, instead of being called an up and coming team, we are called a disappointing team. It's nice to be looked upon with higher regard by the press, but it's a two edge sword.

    But since the Texans are a much better team than they once were, and folks are noticing that, I suppose we should get used to the attention - both good and bad.

    I believe Jackson was a teammate of Kubiak in Denver. Maybe Kubes has expressed his confidence in his group to Jackson....or maybe there's a little wishful thinking for his friend and Denver teammate in his pick.

    Either way, I've always had respect for Jackson's opinion, so nice. Let's make him look like a prophet.

    I'm with you. I will be optimistic, I believe that we can win but I also remember all the previous hype so I'll wait and root and believe.

    Just ran into a co-worker in the hallway at work.

    Him: "I hear you're a big Texans fan."

    Me: "Season Ticket holder."

    Him: "They're going to the Super Bowl."

    Me, after I laughed a bit: "I hope so."


    He look at me with a straight face, and said, "Super Bowl" then walked away.

    I was astonished at how matter-of-fact and confident he was about his prediction.

    Damn.
