    Scenario 1:

    12:00 - Andre is hungry. Matt wants it. DeMeco can feel it. The Patriots don't stand a chance. This is their time to prove everyone wrong. They like Kubes and want him to stay...the playoffs is the way to do it. They KNOW they've flopped in big games too many times this season. It's here and now. They win and they're riding high.

    Then come the 3 o'clock games. Oakland pulls the upset, but KC can't get it done.

    7:30 rolls around...the Jets can taste it, the playoffs are theirs. But Cincy can't resist the urge to play the Texans again.

    11:00 is here and it's official. THE TEXANS ARE IN.


    Scenario 2: (The reverse time scenario)

    10:30 - The Jets have done it. They've won and they're in.

    4:00 - Miraculously...the Raiders AND Chiefs have pulled off the upset. The door has been laid wide-open for the Texans' final game. They had control of their own destiny, AND:

    3:30 - The Texans can't believe it. Another heartbreaking loss. Oh well...here's to next year. Not like 2 of those teams will lose anyways, right?



    I'm praying for a scenario 1 or similar...but man, I know Houston football, and I think we're all subconsciously waiting for scenario 2.


    Even though none of us will prepare for the heartbreak...as usual.

    Hope for the best and prepare for the worst!...and, oh yeah, circle the wagons. :howdy:

    I've let my mind wander a few times this week to think about what it would be like to a) have our first winning record, and b) the cards fall right and we sneak into the playoffs.

    I hope for all of this, and Texans fans would be going crazy for it.

    But honestly, I'm cynical and expect another 8-8 season. I hate that, but I hate the feeling of being let down by our hometown football team, so it's a protective measure to expect/prepare for the worst.

    honestly

    I think by the 3rd Q after seeing hey the texans are hitting hard Pats say screw this we dont feel like playing anymore

    we win

    I seriously think the Jets wipp up on CIncy but Cincy plays hard 2 at home for there fans ..i have no idea who winz this one


    I think the ravens are a good team they crush the raiders on the road this is teh RAVENS TEH RAVENS PEOPLE the radiers have no chance

    who know what KC is going 2 do there playing at denver right so yeah thats not good for our chances

    i really think 1 team we need to lose will lose but the other 2 will not

    What the Texans deserve is probably losing a tie-breaker due to the fact we should not be in this situation to begin with.

    What I hope is that we can pull out the win and get the help and put all of the frustration behind us.

    What to bet on is that we lose and so does everyone else so that all we needed to do was win at home to get in.

    The Serenity Prayer

    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.

    The Texans can only decide what happens against the Patriots.

    The pessimist in me is saying:

    Jets beat Bengals
    Broncos beat KC
    Ravens beat Raiders
    Patriots beat Texans

    The optimist in me says:

    Bengals beat Jets
    Broncos beat KC
    Ravens beat Raiders
    Patriots beat Texans

    I sure do hope something breaks our way. This city needs to see the Texans in the playoffs. Even if they go one and done it will go a long way towards forgetting about the crappy start to this franchise and give us tangible hope for the future. None of that, "Well at least we looked better in our losses!!!" crap we've gotten so used to hearing during our time improving from terrible to average.

    I know how he feels. It's tough sometimes to get all the voices to shut up so I can think.

    My plan (providing the Texans win) is to get drunk before, during and after the game. Go home and pass out until morning without watching any other game or highlights. I will either wake up happy or extremely hungover and pissed off depending on the what the radio tells me.

    One thing you can say about this Texans team anyway... if they do manage to squeak into the playoffs, nobody is going to consider them a pushover. One and done is not automatic, when they play well they can play with anyone. In the playoffs they won't be able to get by only playing one half though.
