    Ok, it's not a forgone conclusion. In fact it seems more than likely that the Texans can win this game.... and that's exactly what makes me nervous about it. The Titans are seemingly in disarray. Their starting QB is hurt and crazy, their dependable backup is hurt. Their offensive coordinator just revealed that he's got cancer and is about to start treatment for it. They got a few injuries and they got a few distractions.

    That means nothing.

    I'm seeing posts here and there that seem to take a Texans win to be nearly a given. I admire those posters optimism.

    We've been mauled this season by teams we were supposedly hitting at just the right time. Cowboys were a mess when they got here, Indianapolis was starting the water boy and some guys who were selling popcorn when we got beat there.

    Things like what you see happening in Tennessee right now make our team fall apart. They make teams like the Titans pull together and play harder. Those guys are circling the wagons right this minute and planning on going on a run to win one for "The Dinger". We'd use the distraction and our feelings as an excuse for why we didn't perform. They'll use it as reason to make some guy named Rusty Smith the FedEx Air Player of the Week while Chris Johnson gets nominated for Ground Player of the Week at the same time.

    I hope I'm wrong. I hope we've got at least some dignity left and can keep a 3rd string rookie QB on a team that should be in the process of imploding from coming into Reliant and making us look like Gary's collection of Man-ginas that we've been for most of this season. History between the Texans and the Titans doesn't entirely count against us. We swept them during a year of turmoil they had back in 2004 during our best Dom Capers led season. Since then we've only beaten them when "Radio" wasn't playing and this week he'll be nowhere in sight. We should win this.

    I'm just worried we won't.

    Just a thought...............a scarey thought. If the Cowboys win today and the Texans lose, our records will match.........with the Cowboys outlook trending upward and the Texans trending into a bottomless pit.

    Fine. Maybe that means Jerry will keep Jason Garrett & not pursue Bill Cowher.

    what this shows me is how intelligent, fearless men can meltdown under the pressure of NFL season. both fans, players, coaches alike, human nature I guess :thinking: but I'm having none of that Texans digest Titans to the tune of 35-17 :koolaid:

    If that happens we just need to swallow our pride, and view it as the path to a higher draft pick to help add talent back to our team. A top 5 pick (LOL it might happen) every round, getting Barwin, Tate, and Ryans back, ontop of the new coach (praying there is one) wanting to bring in free agents to fit their system...we could see a serious boost in talent next year from what we are seeing now

    Then what? I'll tell ya what... we start preparing for Philadelphia on Thursday. And when we lose that one... it's onward to Tennessee once again. Or was it Baltimore? Whatever. I've learned that being a football fan has to happen within oneself. Hoping Kubiak does this or Smih signs whoever or McNair jobbing a random secretary all matters none. After hearing Bobby the other day... It is what it is so **** it. Most I can hope for is that we get the win. Life usually sucks if you're a football fan.

    Pride and the Houston Texans are not synonymous.

    The Titans look like they're in disarray right now, but a good coach can rally the troops.

    Both teams are fighting adversity. We'll just see which team responds to it.

    Doom and despair and despair and doom! It's over I tell ya. And after we go 0-18 next year (after the new CBA) we'll get a new head coach, so things aren't looking to bad. :spin:

    But seriously folks, yall know by now not to predict the Texans. They could win by 4 TDS this Sunday just as easily as they could lose by that much. Whatever they do though PLEASE don't let it be another loss in the last microsecond of the damn game again.

    We're really going to see what the Titans are made of. If Vince Young had the locker room (and it sounds like he didn't,) then it'll show on Sunday.

    It's gut check time for Fisher. If the players have his back, then they'll come out eatin' lightnin' and crappin' thunder.

    It'll be interesting to see how our guys respond to the current state of adversity.

    I'll be there on Sunday ready for a slobberknocker.

    Win or lose... why am I more worried about our draft position and who we draft? Why am I worried next year, every year and not this year?
