I hate the Texans, but they are a pretty darn good team this yr.. I don't think they'll win the SB, but the Colts have had quite a few really good regular seasons too, just to blow it in the playoffs. I see the Texans as a very similar team to those old Colts teams. just think they are missing something to be a SB team, but they are still one of the best teams in the AFC right now.
Talent-wise the Texans are not overrated....they're actually loaded pretty well.
As far as winning crucial games? I am not sold on them....and last night all that talent was largely neutralized in a crucial game. And they, much like the Falcons and the early playoff editions of our own Manning-led Colts....have no long glorious history of winning big games.
They might change that starting this week and finishing out the season...or they may stumble like alot of teams with relatively new found success do.
As of right now....I see them as that annual "sexy" pick that people plug into the Super Bowl, but inevitably falls short.
