    Saw this at PFT.....


    Texans: Locked into the AFC No. 3 seed. Week 17 is meaningless to Houston, and the Texans may rest many of their key players.


    Or will they? knowing they might have to face us a second straight week might put fear into Kubiak and his staff and they could be tempted to play starters for at least a half or maybe more.

    I think they'll rest their starters and come out with a VERY basic game plan just for the pure fact that we do face them the next week. They won't want to reveal too much and there probably going to treat this game much like a "scout team" game to see what we are featuring.

    I think they'll be playing to win, they don't want to end up facing us in the playoffs first round by giving us a game.

    from what i have heard on the local news here in Houston, the Texans are planning on playing their starters for at least part of the game.

    Lets see.... Texans fans are saying...

    Texans backups can beat the Titans. Sit everyone.

    They are comparing Texan defense to 1985 Bears. They say the Texans Defense is 1st D since 85 Bears to hold teams to under 20 points in 6 straight games. Well, they isnt true... The Titans did it in 2008. I am sure it has happened before and maybe since.

    They still think they are a Super Bowl team.


    All I want is a 2 game win streak. Anything after that and I will be happy. It will demoralize this fans and franchise for years to come if the Titans win the next 2 games and end the Texans season. For the former Oilers to do that would be just devastating. I actually think Kubiak could be fired if that happened.

    The NFL would probably like that match up as well. It would be the true start of a rivalry regardless of who wins.

    I had the feeling all along that Houston would play their starters at least for a quarter or two so they aren't out of action for too long.That being said i think we need to bring our A game so we don't get shut out by the Texans D.Our offense must step it up this week no question.CJ can't get by with those two yard carries so i think we will be passing the ball quite a lot.

    They have not played well the past few weeks...they cannot afford to take time off. I think they come out figuring we can't run on them and will play like its a playoff prep game.

    Don't really care if Kubiak suits up...if we don't play our best we will not beat them there. It will be playoff atmosphere and we better bring it.

    I wonder if we see Delhomme at any point? As average as Yates has been lately, there's no way they want either Delhomme or Garcia to play in the postseason.

    Either way this team needs to show up in a big way. This team had the opportunity to make the playoffs in 2006 and had to win in week 17 against the Pats and laid an egg.
