    I love to have the honor of doing our last game thread for the season. What a fun ride this year. Today we get to see what Cook is all about. Go all out and see what we have.

    Cook impresses but Houston D too much

    24-13 Texans

    Been a great season. Looking at Cook for some magic. Who was the last rookie QB to win in the post season?

    :hmph:

    Maybe. But let's not burn the bridge before we get to it.

    Agree on all points except not giving up and assuming a loss. Too many "experts" are predicting the Raiders to win for me to say only die-hard fans believe the Raiders have a good opportunity.

    As much as I want to see Cook do well to contribute to a win, really want to see what Watson has to offer at LT.

    And Kujo coming back has reason to believe the D will be appreciably better. Be good to see.

    This post was a couple syllables shy of TLDR.

    Not feeling a win. Can we? Yes we can. But barring the defense doing something they haven't done all year, Our OL doing what they didn't do the last time we played the Texans, without Penn, and a rookie QB playing well in his first start against arguably the best defense in the league......I don't see it happening. This is though. The ONE team that I think we COULD beat with Cook. But I don't see it happening. Sad. Fuckin 11 3/4 and 3, and the whole season wasted on one fucking play. A slip by Penn.......Then McGloin looks like ass. Gets blasted. Penn fucks his knee up. Osemele fucks his ankle up. No running game. ..... Just some extremely shitty timing with injuries.

    It's been a good season.The planets were all in alignment.Then as fast as that it all fell apart .It sucks.After sucking for so long.So as usual I have to expect the worst but hope for the best.

    When it happened I just shrugged my shoulder and said of course. We won game after game that easily could have gone the other way and I hope this wasn't some kind of flash in the pan here today gone tomorrow type of season followed by a massive fall the next year.

    I so badly want Mark's team to be the one that knocks Bob McNair out of the playoffs.

    I will be so satisfied if we win today and lose next week. That's what expected even if we had Carr in there.

    Remember boys that today if you don't laugh you will probably cry or beat your spouse. So chill with me and watch the first preseason game of 2017.;)

    This.

    Its been a roller coaster of a season. Injuries ruin good seasons and we just experienced about the worst case scenario. Good thing D.Carr is young and the window is just opening. Maybe we got thru our shit luck injuries this season so the team can come back and win it all next year.

    Texans are beatable. But I wouldn't bet on a rookie QB with no LT against a solid D. Either way, I'm gonna try to enjoy the being in the playoffs thing today for a bit. We've all earned it. Just playing today is a huge step forward for this franchise. Kudos to Mark Davis for getting this thing back on track.

    Don't forget, the pressure is 100% on Houston. Heads will probably roll if they lose this shit so buttholes will most likely be very tight on that sideline.

    At the end of the game, we will have our spirits raised high...yeah 80 proof should kill any memory of a bad game :D

    Just kidding....I feel we win today. This team has had many obstacles this year, and identified as the underdog a lot of the season. Builds character.

    I think this is the game where we say enough already...like the punching the bully in the mouth...

    #cheers
