Great win yesterday by the way. If you guys beat the Ravens (assuming you play them), I will be really impressed and call your season a very good one at that point. I am fair about things as you know.

If the Steelers beat the Bills, the Texans will face the Chiefs instead. Just noting there are two possible outcomes.

 

EDIT: Just saw you mentioned that in your post.

If the Texans beat the Chiefs, I will still say the Texans at that point has had a very good season. Chiefs and Ravens to me are pretty even. Texans need to play perfect to win, can't Turn it over, and try and control the clock.

I'm a Braves fan in baseball, and I remember in 2021 the Braves had the worst record of any team in baseball that made the playoffs and they won the World Series. Anything can happen. Of course the next 2 years we have the best record in baseball and lose to the Phillies in the divisional round both years. Sports are weird in the playoffs. You have a shot. Enjoy the moment!

True, true…once you’re in anything can happen. That’s what’s great about playoff baseball and football, I lament that the NBA tends to be so predictable on that note though 😂

Yeah for sure. I still haven't recovered from the loss yet. I still refuse to watch Chris Ballard's press conference right now.

You didn't miss much. 1 thing he did say is, he has money to work with AR being under rookie contract. So maybe he will make more offseason moves which will please many in here.

Yep, it’s either Ravens or Chiefs…Man if we’re able to pull off a win against either and punch a ticket to the AFCCG for the first time, I will get a Stroud or Meco tattoo 😂 And I’m not saying where!

Yeah, that would be a great accomplishment for your team. When the Colts had Peyton and Luck, I felt like if we didn't make at least the AFC Title Game it was disappointing. Stroud and Ryans gives your team hope at least.

Those rookie QB contracts really are great…San Francisco in particular is living the good life paying Purdy essentially chump change for the impact he’s having.

I agree, the Colts and Texans both need to take advantage of it. If they do it right both teams will be good for the next 2-4 years at worse.

Remember, C.J. Stroud lost to Bryce Young and the Panthers earlier in the season. He will have good games and bad. Yesterday was impressive, and he made a case for OROY. I think Stroud can do well in the Divisional round but the game could be closer. Not every one will be a shootout. 

I’ll be looking forward to the rematch :thmup:

It is amazing what 1 play does. We get a 4th and 1 and whole narrative is 100% different. Oh well, that is football. 

One play can change everything in the NFL.

 

A bad One like Minshews 4th and 1 miss, ended the colts season and it very well could be the one play that kickstarted a Texans team that not only made the playoffs, but went on to win a game in CJ Strouds first playoff game and season.

 

So yes, one play can change the narrative 100%.

 

Big ben not making the tackle in the playoff game against the colts, would have changed a lot for the colts and Manning.

Vinatieri missing a kick in the snow vs. the Raiders. 

etc.

 I see you and other "fans" that cannot accept any positive comments about other players and or teams do when your teams can't get the job done. How many teams are there in the NFL and of those teams are there ANY good players or are you just tired of losing? But then how can your team ever lose a single game when all the owners, GMs, coaches, staff members and players are the best in the league?

To your first sentence, plenty of people can accept it. Problem is, usually when people boast and prop up someone from another team, they bash our team or players. People can say Stroud is great all they want but leave the Colts and AR out of it and everything would be fine. Most don't, most throw AR and our GM under the bus at the same time. On a Colts website, Homey don't play that Homer Simpson Reaction GIF

While it is a Colts website it contains a section titled "NFL GENERAL" with the instructions reading, " If it's NFL and it's NOT COLTS, it goes here." I see every year criticisms of the Colts that are at best unwarranted hot air.  To refuse to acknowledge excellence where it is deserved on other teams is just plain stupidity.

No one likes you because you use this colts forum to tell us the texans are good.  You may not be breaking rules but no one likes you or your posts and we are allowed to tell you that too

 

We call you a troll because you use this board to say hey look Houston is better than you guys.  A smart person would realize you are going to get a lot of push back and people not liking you for posting this tbh 

 

You can post it but we are also going to push back and ask you to stop.  Go post it on the texans page

Like I said, I am perfectly fine if someone wants to say Stroud is good or great. He is good and deserves ROY. So I don't disagree, but it is the people in the same post that bash Ballard or AR is where it becomes trolling. You or nobody knows how good AR may be. He could end up like Lamar Jackson and make a lot of people look like fools.

Stroud is good. But So was Deshaun Watson with the Texans, I remember thinking this dude needs to leave our division cuz it's gonna suck playing him twice a year.. that lasted 4 seasons..

 

Almost the same type of hype from both of these players. Hopefully CJ doesn't enjoy massages

CJ is a better passer than Watson was at this moment and his career, also they don’t have a GM who will trade their best playmaker (Hopkins) for some expired cheese and used straws.

Watson was a great passer his rookie season.   He had 19 tds in 6 games

Watson could run better so it evens out. Watson was actually a good passer as well.

He had good production, and his talent was obvious. But from the ground up, he was awkward and fundamentally flawed as a passer. He got better in some areas, but he still has some of the same issues with fundamentals.

 

CJ Stroud is much more fundamentally sound, more disciplined, better from the pocket, he's a quicker decision maker, I think he's more accurate to all levels of the field, and his arm is almost as good. He's not as athletic and fast, and he probably can't make crazy throws 50 yards downfield while he's scrambling the way Watson could, but we just saw him make a pretty good throw on the run against us.

 

I'd agree that Stroud is a better passer, all things considered. He's already displaying a mastery of some of the things that Watson never improved on.

Or he could wind up an injury plagued player that is gone after missing too many games or even a disappointment in general. Time will tell.

He very well might, then again Stroud could get a season ending injury next season by simply getting sacked in the pocket. Burrow has already had it happened twice (this season) and it happened when he was a rookie. Point is, not sure why anyone would right off AR already. Oh, I do get it though, it is because the people doing so didn't want him in the 1st place. More than likely, they wanted Levis who played in 9 games and had only 1 great game and also got put out for the year due to injury, missing his last 3 games. Pretty easy to read people :thmup:

AR is better than Stroud to what exactly? 

 

Im afraid Stroud is the real deal, and that he will only get better next season and going forward Texans will dominate the AFC South.

 

Anthony Richardson har shown flashes of his potential, but so far he´s been a bust. And yes, that's due to injury, but he needs to play to help us.

 

This Texans team could very well go through to the AFC Championship game, and honestly, their setup with a great young coach in DeMeco and a franchise QB in Stroud, a solid D# and lot's of cap space, they will be a huge factor in the AFC going forward.

 

Again, we honestly don't know what we have in AR.

 

What we do know, is that Stroud has just as many playoff wins as Ballard and the colts have since Ballard came to the colts.

 

I hate it, but I agree with all of this

Meh. I think a lot of it is overly sensational (like calling Richardson a bust, which is head shaking to me). However, it's true that the Texans are in really good position.

 

But that's a good thing, IMO. I don't want to be in a cupcake division, I want our team to have a significant measuring stick opponent every year, and twice a year is even better. I want us to be striving to keep up with a team with a hotshot young QB. The more, the better. It raises the bar for our own team.

I should've said I don't agree with the bust part. He most certainly showed flashes before he went down. 

 

Also, I agree with you. AFC South is going to finally be full of good teams and force the Colts to elevate their game. Always hated winning the division and getting roasted in the first game of the playoffs.

    • Massive deal. Billions of dollars to the local economies inbound from each of these events. The Rumble is my favorite night of the year, so I’m most excited for that one. There’s nothing better than a well done Rumble.    I’ve said since the day it opened that I don’t know why WWE hasn’t run WM at the stadium. Coming in the north entrance and seeing the ring down below and a full house across the way is going to be a killer camera shot.      Hopefully they open the roof for SummerSlam. 
    • Shaw did do a very poor job of recruiting his last few years which infuriated a good part of the fan base.  They were happy to see him retire early, though he left with a very generous golden parachute which made many fans even angrier.      As for the Hogan years, yes they were very good.  But not primarily due to Hogan who was a nice college level quarterback.    Hogan was supported by (A) Christian McCaffrey and (B) the most talented Stanford recruits in school history.  Including an OL with two future 1st round draft picks on it plus other very good talent.  And (C) some of the best defensive players Stanford ever recruited.   The team was as loaded as Stanford can get.  Hogan just had to be good, there was rarely pressure for him to be great.    Someday….  (If anyone is interested)   Perhaps this off-season, I’ll tell you some great Stanford Sports stories.  The school is an odd mix of strange decisions concerning football and other sports plus some decisions that are both good and infuriating.  Most days it’s easy to be a Stanford fan.  But somedays the school makes it so hard.   Harder than they need to.       
    • 3-14 mostly cause AR is still a question mark. I do like what I did see but until he proves he can make it a season, no one knows. So I’m setting bar low
    • They didn't win a game that AR played the majority of snaps. I am not even factoring in his injury risk. Even assuming he's healthy, he's basically repeating his rookie year. While everybody would agree his upside is higher than Minshew's, there's still nothing definitive to point to AR automatically equaling more wins.    Also, as you mentioned, the Colts fundamentally stayed the same, meanwhile, AFCS teams got stronger, especially HOU and TEN. TLaw beat both Minshew and AR last year. Stroud is now in year 2. Levis will be in year 2 (and if we think AR will make a jump, we have to consider that Levis could as well).   Yes, they won 9 games last year with Minshew. But their schedule isn't the same nor is it easier. So it's weighing the impact of AR returning + some young player development) vs. a much tougher schedule of QBs + offseason improvements for other teams (in most cases) + some young player development.   When I compare what happened last year to what they are facing this year, I don't see where they are supposed to make up the ground in the win column. I suppose there could be a rash of QB injuries again. But barring that, the win improvement has to come against good-great teams, which is a tall order.  
    • History says you win with a great qb or a great defense.  A great d hasn't won in a long time.   What does that leave??
