Texans think they own this division

25 posts in this topic

We'll be back on top by next year or at the latest the year after. We just simply need an OL which we should be able to fix through free agency.

Well last year the division sucked and this year we are still supposedly rebuilding.

Yeah we can win it next year again.

I honestly cannot even stomach them anymore at times. Unless they beat Manning or Brady or heck both in the playoffs I will laugh at them. It is supposed to be SB or bust.

But... they do own the division this year.  I mean, that's pretty much fact.

 

Let them have their fun.  They have a smaller window than you guys do with their star players.

They do own the division, as of now.  They won it last year and have won it this year.  But like RG3 said, they don't have a huge window.  Andre and Schaub aren't getting any younger and with free agency, pieces of their O-line could be moving to other places, like Eric Winston did this year.  And their defense has shown that it can be beat and that Watt can be kept in check.  As of now, we simply don't have the talent to keep up with them.  We do have the team to be able to beat them, but they have a deeper and more complete roster.  That doesn't mean that their reign will last very long though.

 

I think today was their third win of the season against a team with a winning record.  But they have earned the division crown, so kudos to them for that.

True. You are almost making me feel guilty at times today. I mean they are kinda cute....Wade with his Christmasy snowman looking appeal and every time Watt smiles and celebrates with glee.

I guess they can have their fun until some point in January and I am fine with this.

See how nice I am?

They are the kings of the south...for now.  But weary is the head that wears the crown.  The Colts are like Cassius...they have that lean and hungry look.  :D

Texans won it fair & square.

 

And it doesn't look like it is going to be anyone but the Colts & Texans next year.

 

It could turn out to be quite the rivalry in the next couple years.

Next year is the year of the Jaguars...worst to first..and Blaine Gabbert is the MVP...j/k

 

Texans won it fair and square...so they deserve some praise...but...as in all things..what goes up, must come down...maybe next year is our year again to begin another long run of AFC South Championships...

They do for now they have won it the past two years and are 5-0 vs. the South this year and are combined 9-2 vs. it the past two years and one of those two loses came in a game where they rested their starters.

  Agreed. I can't wait to see this rivalry blossom! It could turn into one of the best in the NFL, but it seems my side needs some major make-up games to gain ground haha.

Texans are a joke.

No creativity. Their quarterback is a statue.

Andre Johnson only has a year or two left.

Shut down Foster and Johnson and they have nothing.

Whithout a decent O-line and with a bunch of rookies and new players, 9-5 and chance for a PO spot is a very solid performance.

 

Our shortcomings are capitalized, and that will help to improve the roster.

You may not like this, but in NFL circles, from top to bottom,  that is considered a very, very good roster.   

 

Easily top-8, and that's the top quarter of the entire league.

People need to understand the difference between owning a division and winning a division. Look at the AFC East to see an example of "Owning" the division. The AFC South has been owned by us for practically a decade, lets wait a few more years before we say Houston owns this division.

Sorry, I forgot to indicate sarcasm on, and off again.

I googled 'owning a division' and couldn't find a definitive indication on what that means, so this must be an individual interpretation issue.

 

How should we define it?

 

Two in a row is a good start. The Jags & Titans don't seem to be a threat, at this time.

There's enough promise there to believe the Colts will disrupt it, but it has to happen first.

    • Brady is deflating the NFL'S balls as we speak. 
    • I am going with Cincinnati, giving  them the edge,  being at home.  They held their own for the better part of 3 quarters against the Broncos, then the Broncos DEF was just too much at the end of the game.  
    • I've put two parts of your post into bold, and I'd like to address them.   I'll take the last one first....    about this team not being good enough to recover from Luck's mistakes.    Well, we recovered this week.     We still beat San Diego.      If you're saying we can't make mistakes and beat Denver,  then I agree,  but that's Denver.     At least we beat San Diego and overcame our mistakes.   As to Brady, Rodgers and Wilson.       I think you'll see their raw interception numbers are far less than Lucks.   Now,  they're attempting fewer passes, so their int % is better than Luck's but perhaps not as great as one might think.       Still,  Brady  Rodgers and Wilson are able to go up and down the field and throw far fewer interceptions than Luck.     And it gives me no pleasure to say that.    Notice my avatar.                        B                        R                     W               L 15                 7                         8                      8               12 (7 games) 14                 9                         5                      7               16  13                11                        6                      9                 9 12                 8                         8                     10              18   11                12                        6 10                  4                      11 09                13                       7 08                  0 (hurt)             13  07                  8 06                12 05                14 04                14 03                12 02                14 01                12
    • Umm, don't lump me in with everyone else. I'm plenty critical of Luck, when I think he deserves it.    1) Luck didn't try to get free, he tried to get down. He was sandwiched between two defenders who were holding him up and trying to take the ball away. I believe the play should have been whistled dead before the ball started to come out. The play was a max protect with no short outlets, no hot routes, and Luck was getting hit by free rushers within 2 seconds after he took the snap so he couldn't pull the ball down or throw it away. That fumble is NOT his fault. It was awful protection -- when the QB should be able to rely on good protection -- and it was a case of bad officiating.    2) The pick against Denver was a bad throw, and unnecessary. He had time, wasn't being pressured, and had two dumpoffs to either side of the field. He tried to force the ball into an inexperienced receiver with a savvy and aggressive corner closing in. Bad decision, bad throw, bad result.   3) The pick against SD was worse, because it was a one read in iso man coverage, and not only did Luck not see the CB's good position, he didn't put the ball in a place where the receiver could try to hold off the defender. 
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
