GDT: Titans at Texans - Win and In

Recommended Posts

Considered holding off on this, but given its importance, figured we’d get it started early.

Will Fuller is already out for the Texans. If the Chiefs win against the Chargers in the noon game, Houston will be locked into the fourth seed at kickoff. In that case, I would expect to see a lot of backups. Given Watson was nursing an ankle injury on Saturday, I just can’t imagine Houston exposing him to hits in a meaningless games.

If the Steelers and Colts lose, this game becomes meaningless.

If the Texans do rest a bunch for this game, do you then rest Henry an extra week and make sure he's 100%(or as close to as possible) for the playoffs?

As someone that was a big advocate for resting Henry yesterday, there’s not a chance I rest him against the Texans. I may limit his snaps early to gauge how much you’ll need him,  but even if AJ McCarron is throwing to No 1 receiver Keke Coutee, I’m still going all out.

This has the potential to be one of the most soul-crushing defeats in a long line of soul-crushing defeats...

Wish I had a comeback but he’s absolutely right

Only thing I will say Is the Titans brought it to the Texans a week ago.

If the Titans go up 10-0 that game could have been drastically different

Kind of expect him to say this, especially since there’s a chance they’re playing for the three seed. Still would find it incredible to see them play Watson with nothing on the line.

What does his history say?  What have they done in years past?

Chiefs play at 1... they win, Texans have no reason to play anyone of importance.

I think BOB is stubborn enough to play them. 

Looking back at it last year, they were 11-5. They played starters against the Jags. 

Can't remember but maybe fighting for division? 

I know we were win and in with the Colts. Can't remember how that effected the Texans.

This is also a huge part of it. If he wastes time game planning for us on the off chance that the Chiefs lose and they beat us, he’s doing his team a massive disservice when they know who their first playoff opponent will be.

How about we stop relying on beating backups and just show up and play?

If he can’t beat a full strength Texans team that won’t have Fuller then we don’t deserve to go to the playoffs

The Titans are the better team even if the Texans start everyone, assuming Henry is somewhat healthy and Tannehill keeps this up, so I don't really care what they do.
