    Normally I don't get like this on a Tuesday before the game. I just have a really bad feeling about this game. I don't know why.

    Houston scares the hell out of me...

    Ugh

    Does this mean you're going to be more unbearable than usual in the gameday thread?

    Probably just diarrhea. There's a stomach bug going around. You'll get over it.

    I remember feeling like the Pats were ripe for the picking before the Baltimore game, especially after Welker went down the previous week.

    The Jets game on the other hand, that one hurt.

    Baltimore and Denver 2011 should have helped. Maybe you're just naturally negative?

    It's playoff level competition; nervous = normal.

    Bad feeling - BASED ON WHAT???


    Whole bunch of things Houston can do better; including THAT THEY WON'T FOLD LIKE A CHEAP TENT in 3Q like they did last time. They will keep fighting because there is no tomorrow in the playoffs. And they are a very good capable team.

    But that doesnt mean there is any reason for a 'bad feeling'. Unless you think there is a TB injury that hasnt been uncovered or a CAMERA-Gate like distraction about to come out of Go-To-Hells office.

    My uneasiness comes from the fact that the Pats blew out Houston only a month ago. Its very difficult to beat a team twice in a season. There is almost an extra incentive for them to play better than they did the last time.

    Listen. It's the playoffs. Elimination football.

    The odds are against us. It's hard to win the Superbowl. It's very likely we'll lose - if not next week the week after, and if not then 2 weeks after that.

    Expect disappointment - and prize the happiness if we do win. Doing anything else will set you up for perpetual heartbreak

    So does this logic apply to Denver-Baltimore as well?

    Houston is a good yet flawed team that hasn't been playing particularly great for a while now. I don't think they match up all that well against the Patriots. Could they win? Sure. Do I expect the Patriots will lose? No.

    I am nervous to the extent this is a playoff, elimination game. If we play poorly, our season is over and that would suck. All eight teams remaining at this point are good teams. No team presents a guaranteed win. We are better than the Texans. I am confident that if we play to the level we are capable of, we will win.

    No guarantees in football.

    The Texans are a good team.

    However, the Patriots have home field, and Brady and Belichick. :)

    even though this is the playoffs this has trap game written all over it.

    This is like Seahawks vs Saints from 2(3?) years ago.

    Nobody is giving the Texans a chance outside of Houston and that's when things always go wrong.

    Nobody gave the giants a chance in 07.

    The Pats still measure up well vs the Texans(shut down foster, double Johnson. Keep 2 blockers for jj).

    But yes, I'm nervous.

    1) if your posts here are any indication, you're always certain that the Pats are going to lose. How is this any different?

    2) not sure how the Baltimore loss surprised anyone. The offense had two weapons that year, and one of them blew out his knee a week prior to the game. 2009 was clearly not the Pats' year.

    Houston is a very good team with tremendous talent. I expect a close game (within 7 points). I don't like reading or hearing about the Patriots being Goliath or the Texans having no chance because this simply isn't true. There is very little analysis done (except for Patfanken) and instead we see bold statements from writers that really don't know much about football but would rather delve into the intangibles, mystique and psyche (which they know even less about).
    I find myself trying to appreciate this team more and more and simply relish the oportunity of seeing them compete in the playoffs because Brady doesn't have many more years.

    Out of curiosity: if the Pats had lost 42-14 to the Texans last month, and were traveling to Houston for this week's game, would you feel better about their chances than you do now?

    Humiliating a team gives them a lot of motivation. I doubt we see the same type of play as we did last time. They'll be bringing their A-game. I don't take a win for granted at all. I think the 9-10 point line on this game is a little crazy. I wouldn't give Houston 10 points for this game.

    When I think about that, I remember that the 2012 Texans are not the 2009 Ravens or the 2010 Jets and the 2012 Patriots are certainly not the 2009 Patriots or the 2010 Patriots.

    People need to stop looking at the 2009 and 2010 seasons as a template to this team. The 2009 Patriots had no heart whatsoever with a lot of bad eggs. The 2010 Jets were a much better defense than the 2012 Texans' defense and Ryan is more of a match up specific gameplanner than Kubiak. This is the most talented Patriots team since 2007.

    I'm nervous about going into the playoffs with the 29th ranked pass defense.

    They've been better lately, but are they playoff ready ?

    Other than that , no I'm not nervous.

    reminds me of the movie platoon when red says to sgt. barnes "I got a bad feeling about this one sarge....I may not make it out of here!". To which Sgt. Barnes replies "we all gotta die some day".

    Anyway, I always have a bad feeling before games. Had a bad feeling before the first houston game and every other big game they've played. Just how I roll.

    O'Neill: Bob, I got a bad feeling on this one, all right? I mean I got a bad feeling! I don't think I'm gonna make it outta here! D'ya understand what I'm sayin' to you?
    Barnes: Everybody gotta die some time, Red.

    How does last year's bye to The Super Bowl help?
    Exposing the hollow Tebow show, a Lee Evens drop for the ages, and the Kundiff shank-o-rama?
    That's help?

    Yeah, I feel good heading into the playoffs this year but offering up those 2 games as confidence builders to someone who's worried is a total placebo at best.

    I'm not one for irrational exuberance, but I feel better about this squad as currently comprised than I have about any Patriots playoff team for some time. I don't know if it's that everyone seems to be healthy or the green shoots of an actual defense beginning to manifest, or both, but I am and will remain cautiously optimistic.
