    I think I may pokes out my eyes and cut off my fingers......

    Do we, as Texans fans, need to pull for an Indy loss this week?

    No, a 747 crash into the stadium is NOT a choice.

    Well, though the situation is bleak, we do not need a team at the top to run away with it. So we need the Tacks to go on a losing streak (maybe they could put VY back in at QB), and we need the Jags and Colts to keep going the way they're going.

    And of course, we need our guys to play like they belong.

    While I agree that option c is a bad choice, due to the loss on innocent life in the plane, surely we can come up with an acceptable option C. That is the direction I would like to see this thread head in.

    Pretty simple, Need the Colts to win, so we can start climbing back into contention in our division.

    Eh - can Bud just patrol the sidelines like other GM's and some player get pushed out of bounds into him?

    Eh, they are Colt and Titan fans, Im ok with it... Anyway, either the Titans need to bury everyone, so we can squeek into a wildcard spot, or cras and burn. Sadly, option 2 isnt gonna happen. When you play D and run the ball, its hard to fall off to much.

    My 6 yo son knows there are three football rules in my house:

    1. ALWAYS root for the Texans.

    2. NEVER root for the Titans.

    3. Never root for the Cowboys.*

    *the only exception is that you can 'root' for the Cowboys when they play the Titans.

    Whenever the Titans play the Colts I always root for injuries (not career ending).:voodoo:

    In this case , rule #2 may need to be violated for the sake of the Texans .... a Titans win along with a Texans win this week evens the Texans and Dolts at 3-4 .... Combine that with a Jaq's loss to the Browns and we have a three way tie in the division at 3-4 ..... ugh what a dilemma.

    Outside of the division leaders , Ten. , Denver , and Pittsburgh only New England is above .500 at this time .... so a play-off spot is not out of the question ..... but the Texans need to reach .500 before we really consider that a possibility.

    Not so fast. If the Colts lose that puts them at 1-2 in division with a win over the Texans. Also the Jags would be sitting at 2-1 in division also with a win over the moos. Your only chance at a playoff spot is going to lie in Colts losing AND sweeping the remaining 3 division games. As it sits now if the Texans lose another division game they are sunk. You will not make the playoffs with 2 or less division wins. To many tie breakers you lose on.

    I long for the day when we can count on our team to control their own destiny and not need other teams to help us.

    You gotta start somewhere .... a Dolts loss and a Texans win this week is as good a place as any to begin.

    Yep. I am hoping for a Colts win and a Jags loss. Then all three of the other division teams doing a crash and burn. I can never root for the Titans.

    I just can't do it, man. Especially when it means that they stay undefeated.

    I'm not going to cheer for either. What happens, happens and then I'll look for the positives.

    I think Nashville is up for some Oiler style let-down. Let em get to the playoffs with a great record, and then have a 35-3 happen to them.

    They will then feel our pain. Somewhat.
