    they dont look like a team playing for nothing. i think we are seeing the best football played by our texans ever.

    Yeah and once again, it looks like we have a D, AT THE END OF THE SEASON.

    We better fire Dick Smith. All I care about at this point are good games and that we fire Dick Smith.

    This win came off a short week in brutal weather conditions. Great efforts my Schaub, Slaton, Walter, Ryans, and Mr. Bruiser, Vonta Leach! How 'bout the plays by Leach today.

    Unleash DeMeco more often please! Maybe getting this win despite all those turnovers will get the monkey off our back but who knows. Three more games to see if we can improve in that category and keep up the good work elsewhere.

    This was NOT a great win....they won because they were lucky enough to get the last possession. Turnovers were the cause why the Packers scored then it would have been a great game had they not turned the ball over. They cannot play like this against the Titans next weekend or it will be a massacre.

    Sometimes when you take a whiz on fortune you get shocked and sometimes you get lucky. ...today we got a win despite getting shocked.

    If Kubiak can't see that, then he needs to go, too.

    Smith pulls this crap at the back-half of the schedule every season.

    Three seasons in a row. I know he does because I make this same post every year at this time.

    Excellent win in tough conditions... but am I the only one thinking if those calls (fortunate spots, phantom holding, undetected fumbles) against GB had happened against us we'd be screaming for justice!

    Anyway, it's about time we had some luck and it's still, a great win. I just hope it doesn't cause the FO to disregard our weaknesses. This team still needs serious work to become a play-off threat.

    It's almost like Smith turns the calendar, realizes his defense has helped play his team out of contention after eight games, and then with nothing to lose for the rest of the season, lets them play more aggressively and they start playing well enough to pick up some W's.

    But this one's for Demeco's game-saving sack: :d:

    Give some props to the refs today, they were so on our side.

    There were like 4 or 5 mini-Hocules running around in blacks and whites today.

    Agreed. Even Shannon Sharpe alluded to the fact that we need to get rid of the DC.

    Oh, maybe I misunderstood him. I am still too giddy after the win.

    Regardless, Smith needs to go.

    No it wasn't, but most of the turnovers were not Ints; they were fumbles in the freezing cold at Lambeau. We won't see all those fumbles in warmer games. Hopefully, the Ints. will stay down.

    Yes, it most definitely was a great win. Operative word: win.

    Nobody here will argue the Texans played a perfect game because the critical turnovers say otherwise. Nevertheless, the fact that the defense held the Packers and forced a punt, followed by the offense going on a 75-yard, turnover-free, game-winning drive is what makes this an amazing win.

    This was not a game the Texans usually win. They got it done. Give credit where credit is due.
