    2-4 would be hard to overcome. If we lose to Oak, the paper bags are coming out.

    but I would never cover my head in one from shame!

    I think we will be alright, we usually play the best football towards the end of the season. Last season we started 0-4 if we beat oakland we will be 2-2 so if we play our best football by the time we play afc south teams i think we will be alright

    here is how i see it play out

    wk4 Oak @ Hou - W i think we got this Raiders on the road omn paper this is the worst team we have faced so far .... On paper so u never now tho LOL

    wk5 Hou @ ARZ- L they are coming off a bye and iam sure they will light us up on the scorboard just like they did JAX

    wk6 Hou @ Cincy- and this is the homer in me and think after we lose to ARZ the Light goes off in our head we finally turn this team around fix the D and then star winning

    wk7 San fran @ Hou-W

    wk8 Hou @ Bufflo-W

    5-3 going into NOV/DEC months we really ball out

    It'll be over for me. The front end of the schedule was where we had to get wins. Another slow start leaves no room for error the rest of the way.

    3 games that most of us, myself included, may have thought were gimmes (@ Cincy, VS San Fran, and @ Buff) all of a sudden look like extremely tough games to win. We'll be lucky to split the 4 game stretch of @AZ, @CIN, SF, and @BUFF. Unless of course we are like the NY Giants when they won the SB and won every road game they played including the playoffs yet weren't so good at home that season.

    Yep, plus it's the football season in general. I might complain about this team, but I don't let it bother me to the extent of ruining the football season. High School, College and the rest of the NFL easily makes up for a crappy home team. Heck, I even watch my nephew play in Little League football almost every Saturday.

    With the way Indy has come out of the gate there will be no way to catch them unless something happens to Manning.

    And you can kiss the wild card goodbye, with Pitt, Cincy and Bal from the North, and the Jets and Pats coming out of the east.

    Yeah, I'm so numb to the Texans blunders year after year any way. There are other teams that I root for besides the home team as well. Not as much, but I still have teams and players to watch and root for where I get great anticipation. Plus, Fantasy Football is always a joy and a bummer every week win or lose. There is still college football which isn't the pros, but it's still pretty good to watch. The closer and closer we got to the season my confidence in the Texans dropped a lot any way after watching them in pre season, so none of what we're seeing is that big of a surprise to me. I'll enjoy the football season regardless of what the Texans do. It will just become that much greater whenever they do put out a winning playoff team in whatever year that might happen which at this point might not be until 2022. Lol!

    I'm glad those math classes are paying off for you, Bill.

    Cincy. Cincinnati. Wild card. Playoffs.

    I'm looking for the right combination of words to lessen the sting of the Bengals possibly making the playoffs before the Texans.

    I guess the Texans better turn it on, and do it NOW.

    Playoffs? I'll be happy with a winning season!

    Last year we went 0-4 and the world was ending. They crawled back to 3-4 only to fall to 3-7. Then crawled back to 7-7 to finally finish 8-8.

    So a .500 season is still within our grasp, Texans fans! Don't give up hope just yet! :texflag:

    If Cincy made playoffs, i'd be all aboard the Texans getting on hard knocks next season.

    The season is already over if you ask me from a playoff's perspective. I've no confidence in a team that couldn't hold two of the worst defenses under 30 points where they look worse than last year's defense. Kubes isn't the kind of coach that can will his team to the playoffs with a defense like this and a start like they've had. This year was playoffs or bust, and this team isn't going to the playoffs. They'll be a run of the mill average team in the NFL once again.
