Just keeping those jinxes at bay.
Not sure if that's going to be enough. With more of her help it may be possible to keep the subdue the jinx.
Unpopular Opinions: Eight upsets that will rock the stretch run
If this is true and the Chief, Patriots and Chargers each lose a game, the Texans do have a chance to actually earn the #1 seed should they win out. Notice that the Texans are not on his upset list. Let's hope this guy is right.
Good Post. This team is different because we have a QB. This is the first time EVER (unless you count Matt Schaub's couple years) we have had a first class guy under Center. We are 9-3. Anyone who is still Bashin' the Team needs to just hang in there. Yeah, I drank the Kool Aid and it was good. Indy is our one roadblock to 13-3. Damn I hate to say that. I probably just Jinxed the team. I feel 2nd Seed. Damn, I can't control myself. I better go out and play in the rain before I say the SB Champ Phrase.
Damn, I like that Post.............
That is too Deep for me.................
Well I never saw the Texans win 9 Straight..... so as with the Eagles, I'm not going to give them any win, they have to earn it... the same applies to a loss.
Neither outcome will surprise me on any of the remaining games.
Until the Texans can show that they can beat the Eagles, they can't. Don't worry though, if it makes you feel any better, I feel the same way about the Texans ever winning one in Foxboro. They will need to show me that it's possible. Kinda like they did to start the 2013 season when they went into San Diego and somehow stole one from the Chargers, a team they had never beaten prior to that meeting.
Until the Eagles show they can beat Watson, they can't.
Watson or the Texans?
Did I stutter?
One and the same for now
You talk as if we face the Eagles twice a year every year.
I understand that view when it was the Colts, I had the same thoughts about the Colts being unbeatable til they did it, but we have faced the Eagles what... 4 times in total? That's a far cry from the Colts record in Indy against the Texans.
I'm not saying we will beat the Eagles, but I'm also not going to simply give the Eagles the win either, one week at a time. The Texans can win every game left in the season.... the reverse is also true.... the question is do they show up to win or not to lose?
As I said, neither outcome will shock me in any of the remaining games.
No but you're delusional if you think that Watson is the Texans by himself.
Of course any franchise goes as it's QB goes, but Gaine/BOB have alot to do with their success. To think otherwise is flat out stupid.
The Texans need to take care of business today to stay in charge of their own destiny. A win today gives them a better chance at earning a better seed in these playoffs.
Nope, I'm simply going by the facts of the past. Show me, don't tell me. Then I will believe they are capable of beating the green birds.
The Texans can win against many teams, but I have doubts they can win three in a row against the likes of the Chargers, Patriots, and Chiefs. And that is why this Texans winning streak hasn't generated the sort of buzz it could have. Everyone knows there's a big "yeah, but ... " coming.
The Texans lose and so do the Patriots.
Next week will be critical in that race. The Texans need to win the last 3 games and the Patriots need to lose 1 for the Texans to get the 2nd seed. The Texans have the Jets, Eagles and Jaguars left. The Patriots have the Steelers, Bills and Jets left. This actually favors the Texans since the only real threat to either team is the Steelers against the Patriots. The Eagles do present a threat to the Texans, but in reality, the Texans are the better team.
Let's see how things play out. Not much chance of anyone catching up to the Chiefs in this race so it's really between the Texans and Patriots for the 2nd seed.
I'm still pretty optimistic about our chances. Only the Steelers have a defense comparable to the team we just played.
If the Raiders can score 33 on the Chiefs, I see no reason to believe we can't. I don't know that 33 would be good enough. But it might be.
The defense definitely not as strong as I thought it was.
