    I like reading the hype, but undefeated article in week 3? C'mon, I love the Texans, but its way, way early...

    We don't need to go undefeated. Let's win the AFC South and get a bye. Then let's secure home field if we can. Undefeated is overrated, unless you are talking about the playoffs

    If we can continue to get better every week, who knows. We should be 5-0 and if healthy who scares you?

    The 49ers destroyed Green Bay and then beat the Lions only to lose to the Vikings.

    Any given Sunday.

    Exactly. The Texans lost to the Colts last year.

    The odds against an undefeated season are so high that even entertaining the thought of it after week 3 is absurd.

    We all know Kubiak won't allow an undefeated season. Once we get a playoff bye with homefield, the starters will play one-quarter games.

    During this crazy-a$$ season EVERYONE does...
    The freaking Chiefs beat the Saints at HOME
    The freaking CARDS are 3-0
    The Vikes shredded the Niner defense!
    ...and that's just today!

    But the Titans are next for us. They know us well and just put up 44 pts on the LIONS!
    And that's with CJ-No-K still a non-factor and MegaTron amassing over 160 yds & a TD!
    I dunno. With the Jets up next, the Titans could be a trap game.

    This is the first time Houston has had the best team in the NFL. There is no question in my mind that we are the best team in this league. This team is going to give us what we Houston fans have been thirsting forever: a Super Bowl win.

    To be fair, the Titans scored 21 points on defense and special teams. 2 return TDs and a fumble return TD.

    They didn't have a single scoring play (TD) less than 50 yards. If we can not give up huge plays, we should be fine

    Agreed. The Titans had a very strange game against an undisciplined Detroit team. I don't think we'll have the same problems with them (or any for that matter). Locker's wheels are a little scary though.

    Well, you can call anything "crazy-a$$", but the Redskins also beat the Saints at home, and they (The Saints) are now 0-3 against teams who's cumulative record this season when playing teams not named the Saints is 0-6. The Cards finished last season wining 6 out of their last 8 (including beating the Niners), and that number isnow 9 of their last 11 (so maybe they don't really suck), and the Vikes "shredding" the Niner defense consisted of less than 200 yards passing, and a rushing number of 3.6 YPC.

    Oh, and those 44 points by the Titans includes 3 Defensive/Special Teams TD's, which is one more than they got from the offense.

    The freaking Cards have a damn good football team.

    That alone is crazy. But it's not crazy that they're winning --- you're right about that.
