    As quoted by at least one of the players..."they went above average this year"...and are happy about that.

    I guess it is good to aspire to be above average...?

      If they can figure out to either split or sweep the Colts, they'll be dangerous yikes

      At least now we know their stock is rising smile

      However, the big test for the Cowboys is Saturday night. Can they remove the proverbial monkey from around their neck by winning the game? If so, it will be their first playoff victory since 1996.

    Congrats to the Texans.  I'm sorry they didn't quite make it, but I think they're future looks bright.  They have the nucleus to become a dominant team.

    more like baby steps...lol "Baby Step to the Play-offs!" Wonder if they keep the coach again...because that would be a sign of "improvement"...right?

      Ther's the problem. I think they would have been better of finishing 8-8 again and getting rid of Kubiak. Instead they are set up for another couple years of being the team everyone thinks is going to be good next year.

      Remember how Bob faked Turret's syndrome to prove to himself that he didn't have it?

      Maybe next year, when the Texans have a lead in a big game they could all choke themselves to prove that they are not going to choke.

        lol There you go ! Even though I am "some-what" proud of them...somewhat feeling like they are still the "same-ol';same ol'"type of Houston team...I still think they have it in 'em to find new ways to choke!

        And they have way too many excuses...but most professional teams do...anyways!

        And everybody is kind'a "wishy-washy" "that's Ok" fans...most of the time...down here in my opinion. Everyone will say "there, there...you did good!"...No one will force them (by voiced attitude) to bump it up to the next level!

        Terry Bradshaw tells a story...that even after winning 2 and 3 Super Bowls for the Steelers...there were always some fans screaming at him...that he'd better do it again next year...or they'd run him out of town...Now that's football!
