    Selected quotes from the Texans team luncheon today:

    I agree with pretty much everything Kubiak said. It is time for this team to win the AFC South. And it's Kubiak's job to make that happen. There's no reason to aim low for a wildcard.

    This is where he cements himself for a good 10 years here, at least, or he goats himself right out of town by the end of the season.

    I always go back and forth with how I think it's going to end up for him, so I guess this season we'll just sit and watch it unfold before us.

    If we hammer the Colts the first game...at home in Reliant...man, we could go on a roll with that sort of momentum. I just want to see Kubiak finally dominate his divisional foes. Wreck they asses, Gary.

    Finally someone says it.

    That's all I wanted to hear... Anything less is a failure.

    Now if the players care for him as much as they say they do........they'll have their coach's back. His job is basically in their hands.

    wk1 Colts-W .. i think the superbowl hangover continues its streak and we win a fairly easy divison game at home

    wk2 @WAS-W call me crazy but this game will be much harder then wk 1 people saying awww mcnabb wont gel yet by this point well they will have gelled enough for us to barley get and win by a FG

    wk3 DAL- no fluke we crush the Cowgirls at home and by this point the media buzz around the texans will be huge

    wk4 raiders - TBA i think the raiders will be a much tougher team to face then dallas i really dont know who will win this one

    so yeah im thinking we go 3-1 either lose to Dallas or the Raiders

    I think Oakland may be pretty damn good. Their D is going to be lights out, but Jason Cambell is NOT their savior.

    Cambell may end up functioning like VY, 'manage stuff and try not to throw away the victory'-kinda stuff. If their D is indeed as nasty as it may seem, perhaps they won't NEED a MVP QB?

    This Super Bowl hangover you mention, has any of those teams ever been QB'd by Peyton Manning?

    To clarify, there is every chance that Houston wins this upcoming game and if they do, it will not be due to some post Super Bowl fog that the Colts are in. To me that seems like you are selling the Texans short if you are counting on something mystical like that to help them beat the Colts.

    We'll beat the colts in week 1 because we finally have a consistent running game and a CB who never gets burned for those long third down conversions

    Talk is great. Prove your team is that "somebody else"!

    This is good though..I've never heard kubes come out & talk like this about any of his previous teams...maybe he's tired of falling on the sword & finally ready to have the "kids" own up to thier performance on the field..

    The Colts went to the Super bowl in 2006 and won, then started the 2007 season with 7 wins in a row and ended 13-3 on the season. So yeah, if anything is wrong with the Colts it will be issues with their preparedness, not some mystical football hangover.

    Those are both assumptions that have not come close to proven true.

    Kubiak's statements are very significant, given the fact that he's never made them in previous seasons. In fact, up until now, he was saying, always in response to questions, that he believed that they were "a draft or two" away from making the playoffs.

    I know in the previous two seasons, fans and sports columnists alike "expected" the team to make the playoffs.

    But this year, HE expects it.

    Cue the Colts fan in 3...2...1........

    Thanks for letting us know. Be sure to stop by over the next 3-5 years when your team is no longer the ruler of the AFC South.

    You do know that these things are cyclical, in terms of a team being dominant for a period of many years and then eventually fading into the background.

    Every year, Manning gets a year older. The body gets worn down from the previous season. Tick, tock.....
