This is true. I'm getting flack for it on forums totally unrelated to football.

The Texans are truly the laughingstock of the NFL. You know it's bad when they skipped announcing individual players yesterday.

While I don't care about that sort of thing, you have to shake your head at the way things have gone lately. Roll back to 2004, the Texans finished 7-9 in their third year and showed lots of promise. People were talking about them competing for a wild card spot in 2005. And then disaster. 2-14, shameful performances on two ESPN Sunday Night telecasts, grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory in stunning fashion versus Baltimore, St. Louis, Tennessee and San Francisco, and then going against conventional wisdom by bypassing Reggie Bush and Vince Young to take Mario Williams.

And while Mario, I think, will be fine, he can't erase the marketing fiasco of not taking Vince Young or Reggie Bush, and he can't make up for the glaring frailties of this offense. It sucks, simply put.

Bob McNair, who I generally like, has not had a good two years as an NFL owner.

If you can't take the heat get out of Houston. It is an unfortunate part of building your base. I can understand how some may not like it, but I eat it up. I just hope that the powers that be realize that any changes that need to be made are past being reactionary, they are now necessary.

I now think that if I had a chance to pick Peterson I'd do it . This team needs playmakers on offense .

I would also find some hope at the QB spot Kolb / Smith . I think if Carr went on the IR in preseason ... we'd be 6-7 / 7-6 .

If he's available at our pick, I'd seriously consider him, but I also would like to see the organization just come out and try to put together the best OL they can put together. I'm sick of having subpar, castoffs and projects on the OL. I want guys who, as a unit, demolishes the opposing DL. I want the '93 Cowboys OL. I want the '72 Dolphins OL. I want the '89 49ers OL.

College maybe..But in the Pros a fg can kick your tail just like a 38 yrd run.

The Texans had time to get into position for a FG try, but our coach didn't have faith.

Losing sucks. If you feel losing forges die-hard fans, go ahead and finish that Kool-Aid. I'd rather sit in a stadium full of bandwagon fans than one at 50% capacity with a mix of die-hards and fans for the other team. At least bandagon fans cheer for the home team.

Listening to the visitors cheer on their way down the ramps makes my blood boil. Apparently you like to lose. I hate losing at anything.

This team is off to one of the poorest starts in professional football. We will have fewer wins in our first five seasons than 80% of professional teams, including franchises that started in much shorter seasons. That's pathetic.

They will go from mocking us to our best friends when we win. That is what counts in the end. We will have plenty of ESPN time, interviews, bandwagon fans and hype if we have a solid, winning season next year.

The reports will go from "The Texans blew it in the draft!" to "The Texans don't need RB or VY to win!"

This is why Kubiak picked Mario. If he plays like a 1st round pick next year and we have a winning season, most everything will be forgiven. Kubiak gambled for the future, and the future hasn't been written yet.

Yea, I was yelling at the tv when they started kneeing the ball, I mean hell you had a time out you could have thrown it mid field to the 45-50 yard area, then called a time out if you make it, then a strike out to the right sideline 10 yards down the field, hell stop kneeling the ball!

For everyone of these posts I field probably about ten responses that I am way to critical. Losing is not in my blood, disposition or having the fear of losing. It is what you do with the behavior behind the result that matters.

The laughing is kind of knee-jerk (I mean, where was this laughing for the first ten weeks when Reggie Bush wasn't doing anything all that spectacular or when Vince Young was just starting to find his groove?), but it has some merit. The real problem is that you (the braintrust) passed on Vince because you thought you had a QB (in Carr) you could work with. Passing on Reggie Bush for Mario Williams, in my mind, isn't a big deal because the Texans needed help on the DL and on the OL more than they needed a running back--even if it's one of Reggie Bush's caliber. However, they certainly had justification to go in a different direction at QB and decided not to, especially given who they had waiting in the wings (heck, even if you don't go with Vince, there was Matt Leinart).

Oh well, that gives them a serious black eye. But you know, this franchise is really going to be judged by how they pick over the next couple of drafts (2007 and 2008). If they do well in those two and pick up quality FAs, then you won't really hear any laughing about the decision to pass on Young and Bush.

The Texans need to have a good/great draft next offseason and settle on some FA QB and let the chips fall where they may.

I respect David for his classy attitude but think it's best for not only the team for him to go elsewhere but for David as well. It's just not working here with this team and time has proven that. He's never been less than classy on his radio show but you know the Texans made a mistake by keeping him and blah, blah, blah. You can second guess yourself to death and it still doesn't change a thing.

Take the draft pick you can get for David and move on. The Texans actually had a very nice draft last offseason. So do the same again and see what happens.

And I don't worry about what people think in NYC or LA about the teams I like. I never worried about what the person sitting next to me thought about the teams I liked. The Texans will be a really good team one day. I never thought it'd be 5 years or more but hey that's the cards that have been dealt us.

Seriously, if you care about what people think...you need to live up in the mountains and be a hermit.

I laughed, too, because VY squeezed through a tiny opening and made a great play against us. When he broke through the d line, I knew it was over and so I laughed because THAT'S football.

You win some, you lose some...and EVERYONE gets laughed at.

Ask the Vikings and their cruise party gang.

Ask the Bengals and their half-way house they call a locker room.

Ask Bill "Man Bra" Parcells after getting absolutely dismantled by the Saints and his former coordinator Sean Peyton.

Ask the Raiders with a head coach that thinks there is a massive inside conspiracy that's causing his team to be as bad as they are.

Ask the Titans who came up a yard short at the Super Bowl. Ask Del Rio who put an axe in the locker room and had his punter almost chop his own foot off.

Ask the Cowboys who ran through four or five coaches and a long string of embarassments at the QB position beofre finally beginning to regain some normalcy recently.

Ask the Cowboys who gave us a bump up the draft board for Drew Henson.

Ask the Chiefs who had a coach who cried all the time and yet said that LJ needed to take off his diaper--Figure THAT one out for me.

Ask the Packers who keep Favre on the field for absolutely no sane reason whatsoever.

Ask the Cardinals who blew a Oilers-Bills lead (more or less) to the Bears whose QB fumbled, INT'd, and sacked his way to the most pathetic performance ever IMO and still walked away the winner on a missed FG by a guy (rackers) who has been a pro bowler.

I just don't get it. What's the big deal that we lost and were beaten by a guy who grew up in the area?

You guys are way too insecure about yourself. To care so much about someone laughing at you? They'd laugh at you about other things even if we had won the game. People like that are petty and you actually shouldn't care about what they think.

I guess I just have too much security in who I am. I guess I cannot fully know how awful life is for some of you.

That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard! Who cares about mock drafts? People follow teams to see them WIN not to say their mock draft was right!

I can't believe this franchise was so stupid on draft day! VY has been a winner at EVERY level of football and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that! He has only gotten better every year! After his Soph year at UT, they were talking about him being a WR and what does he do? He gets the entire team together in the summer before his Jr year and works on his passing every day! He has more leadership, charisma and work ethic in his pinkie than David Carr has in his entire body! I can tell you right now I'm not spending any more of my hard-earned money on this team until they get a decent QB and improve the product on the field! I can't even enjoy watching this team play anymore. The more I watch them the madder I get about the stupid decisions they have made!

....Go Texans. Perfect post!! Me, I had to laugh leaving the stadium yesterday. A more perfect ending could not have been written with all the hype that led up to this game. The other two draftees were a major part of why their team won, kudos to them. However, that was the draft of '06. Nothing can be done about it now, let's move on. Either complain of the unchangable past or look forward to an improved future.

Personally, I think Kubiak and co did pretty good their first outing of the draft (much better than the 4 years of the previous braintrust) and feel they will make just as good decisions in the future. It may not be the microwave results, but it isn't too bad so far when the Texans are having to clean up the mess left for them.

Let 'em laugh. It's the friggin "hype o' the day" media and the joy they must get to finally say "I told ya so.... and we reported it FIRST" - whoopty. Betcha they were squirming a bit when they didn't predict the first pick and even more so when their chosen ones weren't doing much at the beginning of the year.

Good for the titans and good for the saints. The Texans day will come soon.

We'll probably beat the Pats this Sunday. We have a better TEAM than the Titans. They just happen to have squeaked by the past two games. They resemble a trailer house park where guys get together and play flag football on some pacthy, dried up grass as cars zoom by on the Interstate.

We played the better game against the Giants, the Titans TWICE, and we swept the Jags. We beat the pats and the Colts and it won't even matter to 98% of the people here.

98% of the people here are all VY fans who come here to cry and rub our noses in it.

Once again: People who make a living out of cracking on people or teams each day is just a huge non-factor to me.

I mean, does he have the ability to impact your life THAT much?

Show some personal reponsibility and turn the dial. You'll be happier for it.

You assume too much young, ignorant grasshopper. I made no mention of the fact that Rome was cracking on the Texans impacting my life. I simply stated what they were discussing. Me saying it was sad meant that its sad that every single media outlet is cracking on our Texans.
And don't you worry about what I choose to listen to on the radio. Worry about yourself and you'll be happier for it.

you can't get jack for David Carr. He'll be here next year. You don't trade underperforming players in this league like the old days. You cut them and they sign elsewhere.

The 610 morning guys said they thought perhaps somebody would pony up a 4th round pick for David. Their opinion of course.

Don't know. I just can't imagine the Texans going with David next year after these last few weeks. I think they'll try to get rid of him and start over.

He's ours unless he says something to get himself cut. He's not getting traded. You can forget about that. If you were another team would you give up a pick when you can sign him under a new contract? He needs to stop being a company man and say he wants out.

Jim Rome, as you would expect, is cracking on us HAAARRDD!
Jim Rome, the man who said that Drew Carrey wasn't funny? (As if he knows the first thing about comedy.) If Rome is burning, let me know and I'll throw some more gasoline on that prick.

Every sports TV show, radio show, newspaper and internet forum in the United States of America is roasting us for our incompetence with the first pick. What are we going to do this year for the late night talk show comedians' material?

Theyve laughed at us for quite awhile because we have not given any QB we have an O-line. For 5 years we have done jack freaking squat but bring in overpaid players and a Center who cant play a full season to "fix" the O-line.

Or who is a Carr fan and a Texan fan. Will the Carr :homer:s be here when Carr leaves or will they go with Carr? I think they would go with Carr.


And once again, you would be wrong. I wonder if the Carr haters could find some other person to blame for the Texans woes when Carr leaves?

I don't understand why everyone's getting upset about the media disrespecting us. They've always disrespected us. When the Rockets won the Championship, SI wouldn't even put us on the cover until we made such an uproar about it. And, then they made a stand alone edition that was probably distributed in the immediate Houston area only. Have they ever refused to put a National Champion on the cover before? I don't know.

Jim Rome? I don't get what people see in him. He's an egotistical maniac that thrives on his listeners trying to sound like him. He's smug, arrogant, & looks down his nose at people. His opinion matters to me less than knowing the rat population of Siberia.

For whatever reason, the national media hates us. What do we have that makes them feel so jealous, or indifferent? I don't get it. Thus, I don't care what their opinions are. This is a great city & I'm proud to live here (I just wish we had some mountains).

I love our teams & look on them with great pride. Yes, I get down & frustrated when they lose, but when the next game comes around, I just know we're going to win this time. I'm a homer extraordinaire & damn proud of it. I have nothing to be ashamed of, & the media can kiss my big ol' fat butt.

As for all the player only homers, why do you come to our board when you can go to the board of the team they're on & talk about how you knew all along how great that player was going to be? And, you can tell everyone on that board how you think Houston, & all their respective team front offices are stupid & incompetent & that they'll never be a threat to win anything. At first, they may embrace that. But, I suspect, even they will grow tired of the same old rhetoric coming from the same posters. But hey, give it a try, I may be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time, or the last. After all, I live in the Laughing Stock City. :rolleyes:

Very true, I still to this day wont buy SI. It never shocks me when anyone in H-town does not get the true credit they deserve. Im actually shocked Demeco gets the run he does.

I dont know if people are only about 1 player, you could say that people here are only about VY as much as others are about Carr. At least Carr is on our team (to the dissapoinment of many). But I dont question anyones desire for this team, heck I think EVERYONE Here loves this team.

I'm not upset about everybody laughing at us. I'm upset that the #1 draft pick will haunt us for years and don't see any way to fix it at this time. I'd be laughing too if I was watching another team's equivalent incompetence. There will not be a VY for a while, much less a VY & an RB at the same time available. All the guys on tv are right when they say "What were the Texans thinking?"

VY I see, but Im still not sold on Bush, that guy was deemed GOD, and he should have 2000 yards overall and 20 TDs right now to live up the hype. Heck even had -5 yards rushing in one game.

I'm not sure he'll ever say anything because he just doesn't strike me as that type of player but I would not be surprised behind closed doors if David perhaps thinks he'd be better off with another team..a new start somewhere else. He's never struck me as the type that is just trying to pick up a paycheck and going thru the motions. I think he gives his best but for this team it's not working.

We lost a game that came down to a coin toss, but all people will care about was the Texans screwing up their mock drafts in April

we lost a game because we didn't have Vince Young.

In defense of Bush, he never deemed HIMSELF God, that was the hype machine, and in spite of a slow start he'll set the record for receptions by a rookie and he's not even a WR.

In defense of Mario, think of the pressure on him, being taken over both Bush and Young. It's got to be a heavy burden, even for a big guy like Mario.

In defense of Vince, ...oh, uh... wait never mind... :whistle:
