So, I got to thinking, would it ease anyone's mind about playing Houston if we beat New England? That is what leads to this poll.

Would the Colts rather play Houston at home or New England at home?

Our D plays better at home and I feel we will have a better chance passing the ball vs the Pats than vs the Texans. We will also have a better chance against the Pats' O-line than the zone blocking of the Texans, IMO.

Especially how they played against the Steelers! They tried everything they could to blow that game.

I wonder if they know that Luck graduated last year and there's no use in tanking the season to get the 1st round pick?

They would just go from 1 USC QB Cassel to another USC QB Barkley, LOL. :)

Imagine when we go to KC this year and if they said to each other, "What? I thought Luck was still at Standford. Oh noooooo!!!!!."

I voted for Houston, since we will play them on the road every year. Plus, New England gets all the breaks and I hate watching them...not to mention I would love to have them off our schedule for a while. However, if we manage to win at New England, then that is always the sweetest win of the year in my book.

Probably happens next year. We wont be winning our division the way the Texans are going and the Pats will. So, we will in all likelihood host the Dolphins or Bills or Jets next year. I would love for it to be the Jets so that we can get back one for this year though Revis might be playing???

While I think the Texans are the superior team, I would rather play in Houston. Our edge rushers are much better indoors and the Offense plays much faster indoors. I never like our chances outside on a sloppy New England winter field.

I would rather face the Pats on the road. I think if we beat the Patriots in their own house, that will show the rest of the league that The NEW Colts have arrived and we want to go all the way. It will show that all the heavy hitters in the league like the steelers, the ravens and the 49ers better move over because we are the new TOP TIER team on the list!

I think if we take out new england at home, we will earn the respect that left with Manning. No disrespect to the Texans who are quite a force too, but they are a division rival, I think it's more of a statement to kill a heavy weight team outside the division in their own house!

Sorry....I do not want to see either on the road.....but we have to. My answer is neither. I do not like the games at New England, and Watt is going to bull rush McGlynn to the IR in that loud stadium.....

I want our guys to go play as hard as they can for 60 minutes, and put themselves in the position to win a football game whether it is at LOS or the 56th St practice facility! Every snap is important....every kick...tackle....every second of film study.....Go out and play every team like there is NO tomorrow! :coltshelmet: :coltshelmet: :coltshelmet: !!!!

Good advice Brent. Just line up, stay focused, & tackle the guy across from you. Simple as that. Well said buddy!!! :colts:

A valid point Gandalf! A number of people forget about this option. Think outside the box or just smash the box entirely.

I do not want to go up to New England in January(too cold and outdoors) I rather face the texans in a controlled environment and have Matt Schaub have to beat me rather than a proven playoff thriver in Tom Brady in his environment

I guess I missed the purpose of this poll as we must play them both on the road :dunno:

That being said, I feel we match up better with the Pats. They are a team on the wain (aging defense, QB etc). The Texans would be more of a quality road win.

If we're talking December that's another story, but I'd rather go to New England. They aren't better than the Texans either.

    Thanks for all the well wishes and kind words. I just got home from the hospital right before midnight Thanksgiving, so I can be home with family. I'm still not totally recovered, but they are trying a different and stronger IV med, to hopefully kick this out for good...Love you all!
