    and her post got me thinking a bit so I googled

    from Len pastabelly in 2006
    Winning on the road still a mystery to many
    Esp on the defense.. we just haven't got that mindset yet and a few upgrades here and there

    And running the ball is better but still a work in progress

    The Texans have never lost a game when the temperature is below 40 degrees.

    So yeah, bring it on!

    Inside, outside, night, day, it doesn’t seem to matter. The Texans (3-7) don’t travel well.

    “It’s been over a year,” tight end Owen Daniel said. “So, I think we’re due. We’re due for one.”
    I say that every Sunday!:texflag:

    When you can't create turnovers on defense and your Rosencopter is a turnover machine....you can't win on the road.

    Wait a second......when did we get one of those, that would actually be a improvement over what we have right now. Right now all we have is the homeless man's defense......we're starving in the street. There is no "feasting".

    And they have still never lost a game when the temp. is below 40.

    I think NcNair needs to crank up that Reliant A/C and get some icicles hanging from the rafters.

    Although it wasn't just done by running, I think this was a big key to the victory over the Browns. That first drive took up a huge chunk of the first quarter, so by the time the Browns got the ball, not only were they behind by 7, a lot of that "start of the game enthusiasm" had worn down. Although it's somewhat counterintuitive, I think had we scored a touchdown very quickly, it would have been less demoralizing for the fans, and their energy could have given the Browns a bigger boost.
