You wear a paper bag if you want to. I think I'm going to find me some tickets if I can. This time next week we'll be 1-2 and everyone will be talking about how we're going to stomp the crap out of the Dolphins before the bye.

I don't really think you have to be optimistic all the time. I know I'm not. I don't think it adds anything to the quality of the board to just post "We Suck" threads though. Who wants to read twenty threads of "We Suck" when they come here?

The two teams we just finished losing to are going to probably be in their respective conference championship games. They're going to beat a lot of people this year and if we get better every week then by the last 4 games of the season I doubt anyone will even care about these two weeks.

I found the paper bag brigade in poor taste last season, and even more so this season.

Fans don't wear bags. Fans wear smiles, painted faces, goofy get ups, etc.


To each his/her/their own, but I don't fancy putting my Texans pride in a brown paper sack. Even when we have days like this.

sorry, i drank the coolaid this season so no paper bags in my future. i knew we were going to be bad last year before the season started so i'm not going to make light of anyone's pessimism, but i certainly feel that we can make a legitimate run as the season progresses. i understand the knee jerk after a loss, but it's a little soon to write off the season just because last year left a couple scars.

No paper bags, not yet. After we loose to Washington next week and we are 0-3 we get to go to Miami! Knowing our Defense this will be Cullpeppers coming out party LOL!! 0-4 then it is the Jags and Cowboys! I hope we can beat Miami, if so we might be 1-5 heading into Tenn. If Vince young is starting by then I hate to say it but we might be up 1-6 after the Titans!

Good Points. People need to realize Texans have played 2 of the best teams in NFL. Yeah...we can rant about our lousy defensive play or lack of running game or pass protection. Oh, Carr bashers....keep on..keep on. He's actually done a decent job except for the fumbles.

Redskins are coming in next week; they're having problems with their offense...hopefully, defense can step up and turn things around.

So, Drew...if you want to "jump ship" or throw the Texans "under the bus"...go ahead.... "true fans " don't do it.

Man....how we would be feeling if we played Saints' schedule of Browns and Packers?

Yeah I'm on this band wagon. It's going to take some time. Twenty months of Carr bashing and knashing of teeth will seperate the fans from the trolls. No bag for me. Still wearing my Texan's stuff. Still gotta a good chance at four or five wins. Sweep the thumb tacks, it's a good year.

If you must wear the paper bags can you do it outside the stadium and sell your ticket to someone who is a true fan and sticks by the team no matter what happens

I was at the game yesterday and we stayed till the end no matter the outcome because we believe in the team

We talked to the colts fans around us and they let us know it will turn around for us as they were bad for a long time before they started to win.

But if yo must wear your bag please let a fan use your seat Hell PM me and I will buy your season tickets out and put them to good use
i know of couple of fans that will be happy to go to the games

GO TEXANS!!

True. We looked terrible. I feel the same pain you do. But I would never embarass our players, coaches or owner by placing a bag on my head at the game.

And nobody I know likes losing, especially getting embarassed on the field.

Jag fans will swarm in here bragging about their wins.

We will have to listen all week now from the cowpattie fans who will brag about beating the skins. They will remind us that they won some super bowls in the last century.

It all becomes very personal.:embarrass

We do not look any better on the O line or the D line, and Carr still has to run for his life every snap.

First play Sunday, both of the Colts defensive ends were in the backfield quicker than a cat can lick its whatever.

The jury is out on Mario? Maybe he can help get a sack... hopefully on one of our 'fans' heads that show up with sacks Sunday.

Dunta has regressed, getting beat like a rented mule as the saying goes.

Kubiak has failed miserably in turning this 2-14 team around in one training camp and two regular season games. :sarcasm:

Against two probable playoff teams I might add.

We are doomed to mediocrity for life. Hari-Cari anyone?

Nothing personal, but anyone wanting them, gimme a call, I'll forward your plastic bags to you.

Hopefully they will be there in time for Sundays game.

If you don't want to support and be a fan no matter what then either leave the city or stop watching sports.

Maybe if the Texans gave people something to believe in other than a 2-16 record in last 18 games people would not be contemplating wearing a bag on their heads. I say go ahead a wear them because this team has not given us anything to cheer about. Heck, even if we competed in the last two games, I don't think people would even consider wearing bags. Do you want ban booing too? We have to show these owners, players, or coaches we ain't happy with what their doing.

A fan with a bag on their head and then boos shows nothing but cowardice in my opinion. They should give their seats to charity, sell them, give them away or just do not go. But a bag on the head shows that they are not a fan, but rather a narcissistic defeatist.

Well, obviously, you don't.

Honestly, booing your own team is a stupid thing to do. My high school football team looks like crap right now, but I still go to their games. Do I boo them? NO. I go there to root for my team, and at the worst, we leave when the game is out of reach because of the team's mistakes (fumbles, INT's, no offense, etc.). But I NEVER boo them.

I saw Texas Tech in a bowl game a few years ago. Did I boo them when a loss was imminent? Nope.

I wouldn't say drafting Winston and Spencer was nothing. Guess you think that is not enough.

We got a new head coach and general manager. Guess they should have fixed everything by now.

I thought I was pretty reasonable in my response to this thread but I can't not come back to this. It's one of the stupidest things I've read in here lately and that's saying a lot on this board right now.

When Saints fans wore paper bags on their heads and coined the term "Ain'ts" it was original and funny. Every single fan who's copied it since then has moved progressively deeper into the "lame universe".

When Saints fans did it they had well over a decade of miserable frustration to point to. When Texans fans do it they look like crybabies who don't have the first clue how lucky they are to even have a team in town. They look like the kind of loser fans that get screwed by the local teams owner but who make it easy for the NFL to look the other way. Honestly from the NFL's point of view it's one thing to lose the big TV market here but it's no loss to be rid of Houston fans who don't know what they're looking at, don't support their team, and don't even bother to show up half the time when they have tickets. Now someone is suggesting that the ones who do should wear bags over their heads because they're ashamed of their team.

I'm surprised that the team isn't trying to do the same thing. I have no doubt they're at least somewhat ashamed of this mess they call a fanbase. Next season all bets are off and nobody is going to be making sure the games are all sold out. At that point I guess the fans transformation into "Oiler fans" will be complete. I see it's already started with this kind of crap.

I thought I was pretty reasonable in my response to this thread but I can't not come back to this. It's one of the stupidest things I've read in here lately and that's saying a lot on this board right now.

When Saints fans wore paper bags on their heads and coined the term "Ain'ts" it was original and funny. Every single fan who's copied it since then has moved progressively deeper into the "lame universe".

Seriously. . . What is the big argument here?

If you don't like the team or the product they are producing why pay money and waste your time at the game?

Why not keep your money and time, and spend both on something you are proud to be doing and have a good time?

I am still waiting for one of the people who make the argument to boo and or wear bags to answer these questions. I may have missed it, but so far, I haven't seen them answered yet.

I think it is more because they are suppose to reopen the Superdome on Monday, but I am sure the that having the holy one Reggie didn't hurt.

This has and always will be my absolute nightmare. It's been more than disappointing seeing vacant seats become more and more noticable. I hope and pray the Texans never become the Oilers of old and vacate the city of Houston.

As for whoever's going to be wearing a sack, you'd best not be close to me for your own sake.:brickwall

I just sent some positive rep back, because I think you hit it right on the head. When the Texans are 2 and 2, those fans will be in the front in all their Texans Gear acting like the people with the bags were someone else.

Superdome has sold out all the season tickets....

This is all about the Katrina thing. Reggie is going to play off that, as well as the networks. This is why they got a MNF spot.....nothing to do with the team really.

Hey, I've got an idea. Instead of the very unoriginal idea of putting sacks on your heads to show your displeasure with losing, why not use a Sharpie marker to write a big "L" on your forehead to tell the team what losers they are.

That way, you can also show everyone the rest of the week that you are mad about losing.

At least this year we have created some turnovers in the first few games. Didn't it take like 6 or 7 games last year before our D got our first turnover??

Theres one positive.

Dunta had a forced fumble in week 3 vs the Bengals.
Coleman had a forced fumble in week 4 vs the Tacks.
Evans had an interception in week 5 vs the Seahawks.

Yeah, we forced fumbles but we didn't recover them. I meant actual turnovers. Forcing fumbles are great but unless you can't recover its just a nice stat. But we forced our first turnover last season in week 5.

Didn't mean to come across as argumentative.
Just happened to have the window open on nfl.com, so I figured I'd throw that in. You're absolutely right about the turnovers.

It's all good. The only reason I remember that is because everyone was going crazy on here about it last season... That and I was trying to find some improvements from last season lol. Every little bit help.

How was the Philly game humilliating? Were you around last season, seeing Carr sacked again and again and again? Being in the game with about 13 minutes left (2 scores down, ball inside their 30) is by no means embarassing. We were beaten by a verteran team with multiple Pro Bowlers who was despreate to show last season was an aberation. Did I like watching the second half? No. But was I emabarassed? I went outside with my Texans jersey on after the game the rest of the day.

If you plan to wear a bag on your head Sunday you are already admitting defeat, and looks like you plan to spend 3-4 miserable hours in the presence of Texan fans who aren't ready to admit defeat. Do us all a favor and GIVE your tickets to some underprivileged kid who would give his eye teeth to be able to watch ANY game!! That kid will show up with a smile on his face, and will be estatic just to be able to set foot inside a place like Reliant.

Don't torture yourself!! Make some kid happy!!

I don't understand the problem with paying customers showing that the current performance of the team is unacceptable. This team is embarassing, and the fans should be able to show their displeasure if they want to. It does not mkae them any less of a fan, it just makes a statement that we Will NOT accept sub-par performance. these people are paid professionals and they should be held accountable. In tne real world they would not get embarrasseed, they would get fired.

Seriously, man, if you are living so vicariously through your sports team(s) that you are personally embarrassed by a performance that you have absolutely no control over, then you might want to look into getting some more hobbies.

I wear Texans gear almost every day, and I have yet to be 'embarrassed' to display it, even after a 19-45 franchise record. Nothing/nobody can ridicule me if I do not enable them to do so. Their words are meaningless to me.

Just curious, when you say that you "Will NOT accept sub-par performance", what does this mean? idonno: It sounds like an ultimatum, but what are the consequences of "not accepting" something? Just interested to understand where this logic leads.

I wear Texans gear most of the week also and endure the occasional ribbing for it, none of which makes me feel less a person, embarassed, etc. I love football and I love the team and I expect them to go nowhere but up. I enjoy going to games with my people and I love to see Ws but I'm going to have a good time regardless. I'm an extremely competitive person and I hate losing but I refuse to be upset or to feel much negative emotion over something I have zero control over. As a former college athlete myself, I understand what a boost it is to have fans who enjoy watching what I do and support me, and so I guess I feel it's only natural to give our players that same thing if I'm at the game. Being that I have met and even know to small extent some of the players, I don't feel as if any them are "doing me wrong" when they go out and give it their best and happen to lose.

Personally I am way too much a grown man to go to a game and wear a friggin paper sack on my head, boo my own players, or dump beer on their wives. I'd sell my tickets or give them to someone who would enjoy the experience, if I wasn't going to.

I think that by wearing a bag over your head, you're embarassing yourself more than the team ever could. What makes me laugh about the whole thing is how you actually believe you're expressing your dissatisfaction (Spelling? Is that even a word?) with this team. The idea in itself is unoriginal, ignorant, and just flat out moronic. If I were going to be at the game, I would make sure I have a piece of poster board with me that says "I'm not with this Titan fan" with an arrow pointing to whomever it may be just in case I happen to sit near someone with a bag on their head. But hey, that's just my opinion.

no need to throw threats, i was not even there to see it in the stadium. did see it again in the parking lot. But if i pay my money to take my kids to a game and they can't see because the guy in front is wearing a bag, i do have a big problem with that. You ruin the game for everyone. If you want to make a statement, dont go to the game. Empty seats convey a much stonger message, than occupied seats bag or no bag.

Opposite the bullpen in the end zone field level.

Dude ripped them off and in true redneck drunkard fashion, the guy chases him up the stairs almost tripping, BUT STILL HOLDING HIS BEER! He never spilled it!

The guy who took the bags was maybe 35 to 45 and the guy who chases was like 45+ age.
