    Are the Texans fixing to face two teams (Jets/Packers) that are desparate for wins or two teams that are just not very good right now?



    I dont know what to think!:toropalm:

    Yes.
    All of the above.

    We take care not to play DOWN to the level of the competition.

    Jets have been bad. I predicted in the preseason this year that they would fully implode this year...this is the year Rex Ryan gets fired.

    All the signs are there, such as them ending horrifically in 2011 where players were pitted against one another, Rex is crying in the final post game locker room speech, players are even skipping Rex's crying game, and then they go and get Tebow of all people. They went three preseason games without scoring a TD. They just got drubbed in their own house. And now us.

    Yeah, the Texans would have to really botch this one in order to lose it.

    -------------------------

    Packers? They can't keep Rodgers upright much at all. Benson is hurt. Raji. Jennings. Secondary is very shaky. They looked realllllly bad in preseason, too. The mojo is not there anymore.

    If we're not missing our key players when we play the Packers, we're going to win that game, folks. I watched Colts-Packers today, and even though the Packers put up points...they did it against a really bad Colts defense. And then they couldn't stop the Colts offense when it mattered most, either. All in all, I just don't think this is the same Packers team who won the SB a few years ago.

    We're going to be fine. We can beat the Ravens, too. The scored three FGs today. Three FIELD GOALS. Patriots might be a test.

    We're as good as anybody else who can be considered a top team. The times have shifted radically these past two years. I actually worry about us winning the SB and the word will be that it was a "down year in the NFL, that's why the Texans won it all!" just like people like to say that Jordan being out of the NBA is how the Rockets won a title.

    The real question is if wade gets a head coaching gig and Ryan gets canned are you going to hire Ryan as a replacement for Phillips? I would. Would you?

    I'd be surprised if we didn't hire Reggie Herring or someone who runs Wade's system. Even if we switched schemes, hiring Rex just seems like the coaching equivalent of signing TO. Not a Bob McNair move.

    i think our team is wise enough to have the 1 and 0 each week and they will never underestamate there oppent IMO there mindset is each team every week will be a Super hard game to win

    I agree with GP. In fact, if we do what we're supposed to do, I'm hoping Rex gets canned this week.

    Agreed.

    Can you honestly, with a straight face, say that if Jordan was playing in the NBA, the Rockets would have still won the title? If you can, then you're lying to yourself.

    But having said that, if the Texans win it all, it won't be because "of a down year in the NFL." It will be because we legitimately have the best team in the NFL.

    NO WAY to Rex Ryan.

    I think the Jets are terribad.

    The Packers I can't write off due to Rodgers.

    Can you honestly say, with a straight face, that Michael Jordan wasn't playing in the NBA when Houston won the title in 1995?

    If you can, then you're lying to yourself. Jordan and the Bulls got bounced in the second round.

    The packers just dont look good, i mean i watched the game against indy and this was not the packers team of the last few seasons. This team has some issues, and i think it starts with the o-line. The defense is rather bad as well, they dont seem to get much pressure and cant stop the pass.

    On the other hand it scares me to play the jets more than the packers. For one it is at their house and i'm afraid if they bring tebow in it will have that spark that it had when it happened in Denver last season.

    GB is at our place, and watching them i just dont really see much there to fear. Its the same way with the jets but just get a bad feeling everytime we play them.

    The Denver Ponies with Tebow at the reins had a defense that kept games closes. Even with Tebow piloting the Jets I just don't see their defense slowing us down.

    Announcers said Rogers is the most sacked QB in the league. I think Watt & Co keep that streak alive.

    Chiefs threw 2 Interceptions and lost 2 fumbles and had numerous stupid penalties and the Ravens scored 9. And 1 of those fumbles was a QB sneak from the 1 that they fumbled in to the end zone. if not for this Chiefs would have had 10.

    DX TEX, this is really easy and you should know this as a Texans fan: if we win, then we played bad teams - if we lose we failed our first real test and are just an overhyped team...

    Revisionist history. Not to mention that if Jordan were around for the first title, Vernon Maxwell matched up fairly well with him. Who was going to stop Dream?

    Any team that can withstand a 16 game schedule, and then win out the rest of the way in the playoffs and Super Bowl deserves the stupid trophy no matter WHAT kind of year it's been in the NFL.

    I have the Bears, Pats and Ravens circled on my calendar. But it is the NFL, anything can happen on any given week.

    And the team DOES take it one at a time. The fans, who have no impact on the games, can do whatever they want. Schaub isn't going to throw 3 picks tonight because the fans are talking about the GB game.

    Houston pro sports fans know what I'm saying "might" happen is all too possible and plausible.

    It's why we had a large group last season say "If we beat the Colts and win the division, I want us to have played against PEYTON MANNING because if not, people will say we only won the AFCS because Manning was out of the league this year."

    Houston is awesome...we are damned if we do and damned if we don't, but in the end WE will have a trophy and I'm like you and Thorn: A trophy is a trophy!
