Its hard to say. But IMO the Texans will be better off if they lose this game. Because if they win they might gain some momentum. I know winning is a good thing. But if we start playing better we are still not going to make the playoffs or be a .500 team. If we do win around seven games our draft pick will be about the same it was last year around twelve or thirteen which is just late enough to miss on the elite prospects. Also if we start playing better I dont see McNair firing Capers and the rest of his staff. Which is the most important thing to come from this season. If we loose then you can pretty much guaruntee that Capers and his staff will be gone at the end of the season. IMO McNair will spend any amount of money to get the right coaching staff in here. Also it gives us a much better chance of having the #1 pick in the draft wich we can trade to get more picks. Which we can use to fix our talent problems. I wouldnt say I'm rooting against the Texans. Im just thinking of all the good things that can come from this game if we do lose. Which is the more probable outcome.
