Been saying for weeks they were a pretender but got yelled at due to their record.

 

Yeah they are good but.....

 

Heck with Pagano coming back lets try and give Houston the third seed and keep our streak in Indy going vs. them. :thmup:

People get on us for beating bad teams and praised the Texans when we basically have the same schedule except the texans played the broncos and ravens other than that same schedule. But somehow we are a product of our schedule and the Texans were considered best team at one point. Texans peaked at like week 8 and have faltered ever since just about. And just like Romo and the Cowboys, the texans will never win anything with Matt Schaub at QB.

 I disagree whole-heartedly. Matt is a good quarterback and has proven that more than enough times in the past. With the way the AFC is, and with the potential and explosiveness this team has, Matt is going to get at least one SB win.

Most of the city of Houston tends to disagree. Tend to say Matt Schaub is holding them back

 I've heard this before, but I'm one of the people who don't believe it. I guess we will find out eventually. Not everyone can have a Brady, Brees, or Manning. Some of us have to settle with Ryans, Schaubs, and Staffords, which aren't that bad in my opinion. :D

 and 4th in points scored.

 

So the Texans have a 4th ranked defense (2nd in PA).

Kinda my point.

 

Also in the SB playing the best offense the Ravens gave up some points and Trent Dilfer played a flawless game to win.

The giants scored seven points in the super bowl and Ray Lewis was the MVP

 I was under the impression that we were talking about overall success, which Stafford had last year and Ryan has had since he was a rookie. In any case, don't be surprised if any three of those quarterbacks get a SB ring. Brady and Manning aren't going to be around forever.

We can rebuild him. We have the technology...We can make him better, faster, stronger...He is the 6 Billion Dollar Man..(had to adjust the amount for inflation) :thmup:

I feel like if Schaub ever gets a ring, he will not be Super Bowl MVP. Just like Dilfer, that award would go defense (Watt).

Seriously though...I can't see the Lions ever getting to the Super Bowl, unless they get a whole new front office makeover, and stop drafting knuckleheads. Ryan has a team, and they are in it this year..lets see how he performs this year...I don't disagree with the QB's you chose, and with the right team, any of them could win a Super Bowl..

The thing with Schaub to me is more mental than anything...He still seems to get rattled really easily, and if you can take away the running game, he tends to make mistakes. I think the Texans problem is basically that they haven't been a good team, save for the last couple of years. They could possibly gone farther last year with a healthy Schaub, and Andre Johnson. and now, they are in again, with a chance for home field throughout the playoffs. What they need to do is stop trying to prove they belong, and just play the game the way they know how..Its like putting too much pressure on yourselves..and usually when that happens, people tend to choke..

 

Schaub is not an upper tier elite QB, but he is decent enough to win a Super Bowl someday...

 Part of the problem is that having an elite runningback on the team has spoiled Schaub and made him, in a way, vulnerable. He used to have the offense on his shoulders because we had no run game whatsoever and we were one of the pass happiest offenses in the NFL. We now run to pass and pass to run, and if Schaub can't get passing going, then the box will be stacked and Arian will not be able to operate. When Arian cannot operate then Matt cannot pass, and it's a horrible circle that doesn't end. It could very well prove to be our Achilles Heel, ironically enough. I agree that he makes boneheaded mistakes, but I would take the less frequent mistakes that this Schaub makes to the ones that the old Schaub used to make all the time back in the day. As far as the Lions go, if they get rid of Schwartz and get a competent coaching staff, then I think the sky is the limit for Stafford. Guy has Brett Favre written all over him, except he has one of the best receivers in the game to throw to. Now he needs a running game lol. Same thing with Ryan, but his coordinator is finally letting him throw the ball as opposed to run run run with Turner. If Ryan continues at the level he's playing at now, with those playmaking receivers of his, then I can see him winning multiple SBs. The guy actually draws quite a few comparisons to ole PM.

In regards to the Matt Schaub discussion, while I believe he's a good QB, and you could certainly do a lot worse, is he really good enough to win a ring?

 

Reason I ask, is look at the past superbowl winners:

 

E. Manning

Rodgers

Roethlisberger

E. Manning

P. Manning

Roethlisberger

Brady

Brady

Johnson

Brady

Dilfer

 

The one Schaub is closest to is probably Eli, but Eli just has that clutch factor about him that few in the NFL have, so despite not usually having elite regular season numbers, he's been an elite playoff QB in their superbowl runs.

 

Johnson and Dilfer are the only two on there I would not call a "super bowl caliber QB", and even then, Brad Johnson had a very nice season for the Bucs. Dilfer just didn't throw INTs and that was good enough.

 

We'll see if Schaub can turn it on in the post season like Eli has in the past.

Yeah this can annoy me. We have heard in the past vs. the Colts that "this is the biggest game in Texans franchise history." And they have laid an egg in a few of those.

 

Just this year we heard before they went to NE, "This is the biggest game in Texans franchise history." And Andre Johnson said as much. Kinda odd to me since the Texans played in 2 playoff games last year but the game in NE was the biggest ever?!

 

If they consider Sunday in Indy another monumental game in order to get homefield advantage for the first time in history it could cost them.

 

Just relax Houston....it's only football. :) It's fun!!! Or relax after Sunday maybe I should say. ;)

    • Woman has to know her place....
    • As far as I know, Eminem is the only rapper to list his favorite rappers in a song.   His top rappers are:   1.  Reggie  (His uncle) 2.  Jay-Z 3. Tupac 4.  Biggie 5.  Andre 3000 6.  Jada 7.  Kurupt 8.  Nas 9.  Eminem   Being last does not offend him, he made the list.   Either way, the spirit of God lives in us.
    • Very sad... He was a part of so many amazing tunes.   
    • I don't like anything about Frank Sinatra, tbh.    His music was before my time, but I enjoy a lot of other music and film from that era. I'm from the Midwest and it's hard for me to relate to those songs. They all seem to have a New York/Vegas feel to them (and not in a good, Sonic Youth way). A lot of it seems... insincere, for lack of a better word. I kind of compare it to today's teen bop bubble gum type music where the personality and public persona and "coolness" factor of the artist are as important as the actual music. However, like I said, I wasn't alive at the time to know whether that is the case or not.   Maybe I just don't get it (like many people don't get rap or jazz) but what Sinatra did doesn't sound like singing to me. He didn't seem to have any vocal range. He didn't play instruments (that I know of) or dance. It's really bewildering to me that he is such a cultural icon.    His persona is grating, to me. I never like performers whose image is rich/smooth/connected. Just not my cup of tea.    It also seems to me that Sinatra wasn't that great of a guy, either. I know that there is a culture gap between his generation and mine, so I won't judge him too harshly about what his social views were w/ regard to race and gender equality, but his coziness with organized crime figures ( ie murderers) is troubling.   All of this is just my opinion, of course. I'm not a Frank Sinatra expert, by any means. He just appears, to me, as the antithesis of everything that I enjoy about art.   He's on my short list (along with Gene Simmons, Andy Warhol, L. Ron Hubbard, Ronald Reagan) of sainted cultural icons who didn't actually contribute anything of value to their respective fields. Again, jmo... your definition of value might differ from mine. 
    • Not to mean this in an argumentative way but the changes in the Colts winning ways was started by Harbaugh. We were one play from reaching the super bowl against the Steelers. Take away the illegal TD that Stewart caught and that game may have had a different turn out.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
