    Texan fans seem to have low expectations, at least the "real" fans that only seem to post on this board.

    3 wins from the superbowl

    Either they win next week and then 2 wins
    or
    they lose next week . . . end up in the wildcard needing 3 straight wins

    losing next weekend will SUCK

    It's ironic that halfway through the season, people are saying that the Colts may be gifted a playoff spot because the Texans will have nothing to play for by then. Only now it seems that the Texans will be gifted a #1 seed, because the Colts have nothing to play for next week.

    Oh how things can change. :(

    It wouldn't be the first time a Houston sports team disappointed in a big spot.

    I have an expectation of disappointment as a Houston fan. This is particularly so as a Houston football fan. Is that rational? No. But it's the context I watch football in, because it's all I've known. MY football team has never played for a conference championship. MY football team has never sniffed a Super Bowl. The biggest games and the biggest moments aren't for MY team..they're reserved for other fans' teams.

    Watching the Texans come out with zero passion or urgency yesterday given the opportunity they had ahead of them was so Houston it's ridiculous. At some point you find yourself saying, "Well of course."

    In a sad way....Houston has a culture of letdowns.....

    I wouldn't say Houston Sports has a culture of losing because there has been plenty of success in Houston Sports.... i.e. Rockets playoff runs and championships in the 90's....Astros playoff runs in the 80's and 90's......Oilers in the playoffs for years after years from the 80's to 90's......Dynamo championship runs....even the Aeros have a Turner Cup....

    So this city is not been plaqued with losing organizations for years after years....BUT..this city has been left with numerous letdowns and disappointments.

    So many letdowns that the true fans..the fans that have been here through it all and cried through it all..are always going to b e skeptics.

    As Houston fans we are Pavlov's Dog.........

    I am a fan...but not blinded, unaware and ignorant of what is happening.

    Sorry I'm not one of these idiotic fans on TV that get interviewed by a Houston news reporter that screams "We're number one and we're going to the Super Bowl..woowee!"...even in the face of a 23-6 loss.

    I'm hoping they pull it off...but I'm also realistic....

    If I'm Debbie Downer because of that...then call me Debbie Downer.....

    i'm hoping they win against the colts and get some momentum going before the playoffs along with a bye to rest the bumps and bruises.

    that said if they don't get the #1 seed and instead fall to #3 seed then yes that is a fail. but not epic fail since they will still be alive in the playoffs.

    #1 seed and one and done at home would be an epic fail i think.

    I think getting one and done in the playoffs is more an epic fail, than losing the #1 Seed.

    if they get the #3 seed, and lose, its an epic fail, if they get #1 seed and lost to Ravens/Colts/Bengals at home, would be an epic fail.

    Im hoping they win next week.

    Second year in a row.
    Is this the new trend of Houston sports teams? Monumental fails at the end of the season....

    If the Texans don't get the #1 seed that won't be an epic fail compared to that Chicago might not even go to the playoffs after starting out 7-1.
