    Well, not that far beyond. Next we have Oakland, I see this as totally winable. After that, Vikes. They looked like complete doodie today. I can seriously see our guys at 3-2 and finally getting some consecutive wins. I think the Vikes are over hyped. Especially Culpepper.

    Thoughts?

    Lets just win next week first. Two in a row is easier said than done.

    The Vikes have lost their starting right tackle, who is really good, for the season. That should bode well for the Texans pass rush. The Texans D may not get through the left side of their line (becasue of McKinney) but the Texans should be able to get pressure on Culpepper if they blitz at the RT spot.

    The Vikings are not over-hyped. If they are, it isn't by much. Culpepper and the Vikings' passing attack is very capable of being successful week in and week out. The Texans are still weak in that area.

    I'm not taking anything away from the team. I'm just saying the game isn't "very winable."

    If The Texans can limit the penalties and turnovers , they have a good shot to win!

    Have to disagree. The Bears (the BEARS), kept the heat on pretty well for the whole game. If we can pull it together defensively I think it will be a very good game.

    The Vikes let people hang around, but as long as they have Moss and Culpepper back there they'll be tough to beat. Don't forget that Mike Tice has said he'd bring their starting RB Micheal Bennett back after the bye week which means he'll play against us. Bennett led the NFC in rushing a couple seasons back, and he's probably the fastest RB in the NFL. Plus Culpepper will love to pick on Dunta whenever he can.

    Too bad we couldn't get Minnesota late in the year, when they'll continue their annual tradition of giving up. :hehe:

    The Vikes will absolutely light this defense up. The Texans offense has a chance to shine, but it'll take more than Wellsie at RB to get that done.

    Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. Today's win was great, but we did lose to San Deigo and Detroit. We should worry about Oakland before we start talking about Minnesota. We're not good enough to look past anybody.

    Yeah, if we're gonna win the Super Bowl this year, we've gotta win one game at a time. :jam:
