This game has BAL 2011 written all over it.
LOL @ a moral victory in the NFL at home in week 5
I don't care what we look like as long as we win.......On the other hand, could care less if we get blown out or lose on a hail mary (Would piss me off more losing that way to be honest)
Too much parity in the NFL to play for moral victories......Anyone can beat anyone......a 2-2 team at home against a 4-0 team, Give me a damn win
We're playing against a team that will score close to 30 points.
How are we going to keep up on offense without Holmes, Keller and Hill and zero running game?
We wont score more then 10 points. 30-6 Houston!
There are no moral victories in this league as far as fans are concerned.

Surprised that so many people see no possibility of a moral victory.
This team is in turmoil (again) and there are endless questions about the future of this team in many positions, most importantly quarterback.
Are you all really saying that you all be equally pissed if the Jets lose 41-10 or, lose 41-35 with Sanchez throwing for 450 yards and 4 TDs? There's no difference in the two?
It is going to be a long road to get back to playoff contention if the Jets have to start over at QB. If Sanchez steps up big time against the best defense in the league with absolutely no one to throw to, then I'm definitely taking that as a positive from a game that we didn't expect to win coming into the season anyway.
I know Sanchez isn't throwing for 400 against this defense. But I would definitely "settle" for a loss in which he did.
Talk (especially to the media) is cheap.All their players said it was turning point of their season and last I checked, their season turned out pretty good.
Losses are losses.
The real "turning point" is following a loss (any loss) with some win, preferably in chunks.
What "suggestion" are you making exactly?Any fan acting like my suggestion is crazy: Look at the Texans roster. Look at ours. You're seriously expecting win?
That a "moral victory", i.e. a close defeat, will.....what? Right the ship? be the cause of us making the playoffs like your Giants example (despite all the variables in play beng different)? That losing by 10 late is better than losing by 10 early or in a blowout? Better for whom, and in what way?
To answer the last line, no, I don't expect to win.

Coming off last weeks peformance, i have readjusted my expectations for this team (for now). Our schedule gets pretty weak after this game and if we can show some signs of life, we may have some hope.
EDGE: HOU or NYJ?
dont even wanna finish this....
You know what... is there anywhere where its a tie or NYJ edge?
We could do absolutely nothing vs the Steelers for 3 quarters, a Steelers team mind you that was missing the HAIR & HARRISON & we had Holmes & Hill.
That stadium will be emptier than Shannon Sharps head mid 3rd quarter.
You succeed with talent, coaching and on-field performence.
I'm sure you don't.I don't think it's a crazy suggestion
Same as the McElroy fans don't think starting HIM Monday is a "crazy suggestion" either.
And the "Sign TO, Plaxico and Trade for Edwards" fans don't think THAT is a "crazy suggestion" either.
I don't have time to waste on Fans Inferiority Complex re: the Giants.The team that shares a stadium with us.....
I pegged this game as a loss back in preseason. I didn't get how anyone had this in the win column back then. Now, it'll just be that much worse.
Would I be happy, no
But, I can at least have pride in a team that fights hard and goes down in defeat
Getting blown out at home and being accused of quiting, thats not a team that I can be proud of
If they come out, look like a professional football team for gods sake, keep it within a score of two, then I can at least not be ashamed of them
