    I knew they would play the starters, only the texans would play back ups and let a team grab the #1 seed if we were in their shoes.

    Only the Texans would take out their starters in the 4th quarter after being blown out. I was watching the 49ers/Seahawks game last night, and the 49ers played their starters until the very end.

    Back on topic...I expect the Colts to play their starters. If we don't beat the Colts, we don't deserve home-field advantage.

    I think the colts made a great story this year. And I will probably eat crow, but no way we lose to them. Colts are an enigma to me. I have no idea how they have won the games that they have.

    And that is what has gotten me pissed the most as of late. Kubiak quits, and the team sees he quits, the fans sees he quit. Not the best way to instill confidence is your team and city.

    BTW i ****ing hate quitters for what its worth. It just shows his lack of imagination.

    Kinda worried their "coach" is coming back. You know they will play hard for him. Hell we couldnt play hard enough to lock up homefield against the vikings at home, i dont know where the texans plan to get their "motivation" from this week.

    And if any of our players got hurt, you'd all be complaining that they were left in for no reason.

    I didn't expect the Colts to pull their starters. As well they shouldn't. Frankly, I'm glad. Their OL is not very good and Watt had a field day against them. If he can have even half the day he had last week, it will help us out immensely.

    No if u can stop a team from getting the #1 seed then i think you play your guys and do whatever possible to make that other teams playoffs a lot harder. Especially since we are division foes.

    Before the game that is a great attitude and if it goes well then everything is rainbows and lollipops. If Luck snaps an MCL then you are the biggest moron ever for having him play a meaningless game.

    Texans motivation to win next week should have come from the disappointing outcome last week against the Vikings. I hope they come determined to end the season with a win (and sweep the division in the process)

    To me it just dont seem meaningless. I could be wrong but they know how much it will hurt our play off chances if we dont get home field advantage.

    Regardless the way we have been playing their second string would prob whip our first strings ass.

    Houston better not come out unmotivated. They should treat this as a playoff game. Try as hard as they can to win it so they won't have to face the Bengals in the Wild-Card and then travel to New England in the divisional round.

    I definitely know I would rather Houston get a bye and wait for the Ravens in Houston...

    If I weren't a Texans fan, I would totally be pulling for the Colts to punk them, after their pathetic display against the Vikings.

    I'm glad the Colts are playing their starters. If the Texans can't show who's boss in the AFC south, then they won't go far in the playoffs anyway.
