    Since the entire world will say they have no chance to even be competitive, and there's absolutely no pressure on them, I hope they play loose.

    We have no choice but to be optimistic. It's the playoffs!! One game at a time. Nothing else that happened in the season matters. Just next week and anything can happen. Love being in the playoffs. Back to work Texans.

    I think it's going to be a lot closer than what the naysayers think its going to be. Also, I believe that the buttkicking at the hands of the Patsies actually might be a good thing and may provide the extra motivation to win this game.

    When we feed the vegan good things happen... Today Arian Foster became the first RB in NFL history to post 100 yards rushing in his first 3 playoff games.

    Keep on feeding him!!!

    Why not?

    They have great players and so do we. If ours come out and play great then I dont' see why we wouldn't at least have a chance at winning.

    I honestly feel if Foster dominates the game then we have as good a shot to beat anyone.

    Any given Sunday.

    Yes, I would have liked our chances against the Pats more in October than I do now. But you still have to play the game, and the Pats have been vulnerable in a few games this year, even at home. I don't put the chances at winning at more than about 15%, but that's still a lot more than 0%.

    Anything's possible. If the real Texans show up, they can win. If not, well, I can be a Seattle fan for the rest of the playoffs I guess. Not that they are going very far either. :kitten:

    I don't see why not. They can beat Washington and can beat Atlanta or SF. They can beat any of those teams.

    I'm going to remain optimistic, too. It's the playoffs and anything can happen. Does Schaub care me if the team has to be put on his back? Yes. But, if Foster can get over 100 again next week, then we have a very good chance. Defense is playing better, too.

    i will explain it for him

    Offense showed signs of life, Foster looked good, we kept Schaub upright.

    Defense looked like last year/earlier this years defense.

    Most of all is because we have a chamce to go and try to win next week, better than not having the chance.

    Some of us know that we have special players just like the Players do. We believe that those players will show up.

    Players like Foster and Watt have done nothing but show up every single playoff game...why should it be different?

    Because we all used to believe in Santa Clause, if little kids can believe a fat man rides in a slay pulled by flying rein deer and delivers toys to every kid in the world then i can believe we will win this game dammit :) !
