    At least we have Oakland coming up, then Cushing returns right after. Before the season started, I think we all would have taken 3-1 when Cushing returns.

    As much as we all hate the Cowgirls, we lost to a good team today.

    And it wasn't a divisional loss. That's something.

    Oakland won't be a push over. We have to play much better then we did today. 2-1 is still a very good start for us this year though.

    We are not 3-1 yet. We have to play better than we did today if we DO want to be 3-1. Like I said before the season, the Colts game was more important than a victory over the Cowboys.

    Yeah, and the Cowgirls still have to play a tough Titans team with a Chris Johnson spearhead...and tough trip to Minny. Their idiotic fans can still say that the Texans' only highlight was preseason 2010. But they'll come back to earth again. It was a desperate game for Dallas, a talented team indeed.

    If the Texans viewed the Indy game as a Must win, the Cowboys viewed the Texans game as a must win.

    Yep. You're right. But it's still a tough game for the Cowboys.

    Another positive:
    Htown players get to go home and think about the game.

    Dallas players have to remember: they may have won, but they STILL have to live in Dallas!!!

    Cmon people, lighten up, its just a game!!!

    I was thinking this very thing once all was lost. Dallas can help us out vs all three division opponents the rest of the way.

    Having said that I HATED this loss....lol.

    Lets hope the Texans come out and win next weekend before talking about 3-1. Would be nice though and I expect it. But 3 games is not a large sample to say this team has completely turned the corner and has made the next step up from being a good team to a contender to go out and win a game they are supposed to. After all, Texans could easily be 1-2 right now and we'd be singing a completely different tune.

    We didn't beat the Raiders the last time we played them. They are still an NFL team, and no team is a pushover in this league.

    Still, they are one of the few teams in this league that I feel like we should beat.

    We did beat the Raiders the last time we played them. It was the time before that we lost.

    Sure about that?

    Bright Side:
    -Arian Foster is still the real deal.
    -Rashad Butler is a capable backup. Notice how I used the word capable and take the word's weight into consideration. I didn't say amazing.
    -Next week we play Oakland. I don't care how much better they look, if the Texans don't beat them I'll just have to swallow a big "any given Sunday" pill.
    -Cushing comes back soon, 100% health/energy, ready to reprove himself.
    -The Texans are 2-1. I'll take two out of three everytime. That would be 10, possibly 11 wins a year.

    Perhaps,
    But I have always said that Texan football IS my religion.
    That tends to complicate things.

    We beat the living shit out of them last season at Reliant. Cushing body-slamming Fargas in the endzone for a safety ringing any bells?

    Sorry I should have said the last time we played them in Oakland, we didn't beat them.

    Regardless, it's a game we need to win.

    [​IMG]

    IMHO that was the last time we saw Dunta being Dunta.

    EDIT: So much for memory. I think it was .....yep, just looked it up. His injury was in '07.
