After yesterdays forfieture to the San Diego Chargers I was very upset to see Matt Turkey (who can't feild a botched snap) Laughing and carrying on with Kris Brown on the sideline. What kind of Coach is Kubes if he controls this team so loosely. Mat Turkey should be suspended with out pay for his actions Sunday. Petey Fagins should be fired, Mat Flanigan should be shipped back to Scottland. Someone has got to step up and Tell these Guys that this is Football not tiddly Winks. And if they cannot get into the attitude to Win a game then get off the Team. When I was a kid The coaches pulled you if you so much a let out a giggle while the game was going on, and that was when we were winning. These Guys get paid a lot of Jack to play 60 minutes of football and they get away with playing 15 minutes. If they would let me I would light a fire under thier asses.

Well, in all reality, would moping about completely embarrassed about the botched snap incident have been much better? The last thing that a team side-line needs is negativity. Not to say that Matt Turk had a lot to be laughing about, but I would take that over self-pity and whining.

yes I'd rather have them moping, complaining, shouting, etc....ANYTHING but laughing...laughing while losing = a losers mentality............I'm with dude that started this thread............I remember watching tmac laugh and joke with "opposing" players when the rockets were getting blown out at home last year.....that made my blood boil.....

I would have loved to see a coach getting in his face. There is no excuse. This isn't a joke. We play to win like everyone else. Old guy kicker can't just come around, make a few bucks, laugh at mistakes he makes that cost us points, and expect nobody to get mad.

dam...I'm finding myself in agreement with Dream!

used to be that joking, handshakes would occur just after the game, but more and more I'm seeing fraternizing during the game.

I dunno...I guess I'm too competitive for pro sports...

it's messed up, because you have Tom Brady getting upset that his team couldn't convert a 3rd down yesterday even when they were up by a gazillion points and then you look at the texans and they're giddy little school girls on the sideline when they're getting their heads smashed in.

I think it is a reflection of the coaches. Someone needs to get on these guys about this...seriously get in their face...challenge them. I don't care if it's the recievers coach. Someone step up.

Hey Turk, this isn't a freakin joke to us fans. We don't get paid to watch ya'll lose...we actually care.

Instead of trying to cover the ball, he should have kicked it out of the end zone. I thought he knew this?

If anyone on the team had the balls to do it, of course...

The fact that our linemen have no desire to get mad when our QB is taking hits speaks volumes of them, IMO. They are a joke that is not funny.

I was at the game, 20 yard line, Texans bench side, 6 rows from the field.

Most of the people in my section laughed at the Turk replay.

Also, Pittman was working on his long snapping all game, but Kris Brown was the one catching the snap while Turk just stood around.

It just looked odd. Maybe there was a good reason for that?

I was pretty pissed when I saw them laughing and carring on as well. On the same note, I was pissed when I saw Schaub get decked and not one person did a damn thing about it or reacted.

I fall in line with the rest of everyone here and say this team has no heart and no nastieness. . . . Same old story.

It's because these guys don't really care about each other. Until that starts to happen this team will not win.

Agreed, and I agree with most on this thread.

One, no joking whatsoever...how about looking pissed off, like maybe what is going on is unacceptable.

Two. Why fraternize during the game? How about knocking someone's damn head off. Geez....and not defending the QB, it's beyond me. Kubes needs to snap the reigns back...hard.

You know, I hear a lot of ideas that are lame after a loss. I hear a lot that make me roll my eyes. I also hear a lot that agree with.

And then there is always one, maybe two, per week that make me stand up and say "DAY-UMN! That's a great freakin' idea!"

Punch a player in the grill is that one fantastic idea this week. Earlier today someone posted Dunta's mailing address - I may send this to him and ask him to put in in the ole suggestion box.

Can we get a emoticon of a smiley putting a fist in a turkey's grill or something like that? :ninja:

Me, loving it so much I'm busting out another haiku on it.

Dunta is pissed off.
Incompetence surrounds him.
Matt Turk should spit teeth.

It's amazing to me that D-Rob, after all the years he's been with this losing franchise, still has such a powerful will to win so badly. His intensity to
succeed on the field is still there.
If we ever, ever get this thing turned around he will probably be the happiest. Assuming he's still here.

I was upset when Turk and Pittman were laughing about. As for the offensive linemen not getting back at the Chargers after the cheap shot on Schuab, I kind of understand that. You have to remember that Schaub threw an interception on that play so they were probably focused on trying to tackle the guy. I think by the time that play ended, it was too late for anyone to do anything about the hit.

Dammit we had better get it together or I will be getting arrested in Oakland, for hopping the fence and getting in Kubes grill. I woould have every last player standing at attention for the raiders game. As soon as you get off the feild you go to your assigned spot and stand at attention, you do not do it then get to the locker room. I am going to Chron.Titans and leaving Johnny McClain a link to this thread.

Good point plus they probably weren't looking at Schaub during the play. You would have thought that somebody on the field or on the sideline saw it.

Watch the replay. Salaam and Pitts were coming from their side of the line toward Schaub because the run back was on the other side of the field. They were 5 yards or so away; it was right in front of them.

I guess Romo being completely distraught after the bad snap then failing to run the ball in last year is after all better than standing around laughing. But, on second thought perhaps laughter is more masculine than crying even if you do really care. Oh well!

The non-retaliation is much worse than the laughing on the sidelines. Kickers/punters aren't really football players (except when Kris beat Miami almost singlehandedly). They are something else. Someone should have beat the crap out of that guy that hit Schaub. It's like hitting the batter in baseball. If you don't do it, you are soft.

As far as the laughing goes; that's unacceptable. Hopefully the coaches will be in his face all week:mad: But they shouldn't have to light a fire under them- that should be on autopilot.

I must have missed the laughing, it could have been the bllod pooring from my eyes at that point out of frustrattion.

I saw Pittman interviewed on ABC by Bob Allen Sunday night and the guy looked like he has going to cry. He spoke with his voice cracking and was at a complete loss to explain how he screwed up the snap. He mentioned in an interview the D shifted and somehow he began to focus more on making his block rather than the snap, he took complete responsability for his mistake which is more than some players on this team. The guy has not had a bad snap since he was in college and clearly was at a loss for how to handle it!

From what I heard on the radio, Pittman was beating himself up pretty good over the botched snap while Turk and Brown were having such a good time on the sideline.

It is a little thing, but it truly reflects on the lack of passion and discipline this team has right now. For Kubiak to say that Mario, the offensive line, running backs, the defense are all playing great right now shows me where the problem is. If he truly believes that, and Capers believed it as well, then we have a serious problem at the top.

I think I find nothing funnier than fans constant attempts to have player display the proper emotion/attitude at the absolute correct time. A couple of weeks ago it was how dare Travis Johnson still be mad after the game because he thought someone tried to take his knee out. This week, how dare any Texans observe something funny or drop a oneliner during a loss?

Memo to fans, the players aren't given a little chart of when to display this emotion, have this facial expression, or sign that it ok to laugh/smile, etc. Go figure as humans they are not going to do, say or react in the correct manner all the time. We read way too much into this stuff.

Not really, bro. Did you see the hit? It was violently cheap. Displaying some sort of unhappiness is not asking too much.

Also, I think Travis did everything correctly that week. I'da probably been more mad if I were him...the block by Trent could have easily ended his season.

Not saying Travis right or wrong either way, but that he was being human. there were plenty of posts on how classless he was.

He said it was unacceptable and the team should do something about it, maybe go after the other team's qb and everybody pitch in a pay the fine. He said this team was too nice and said something about playing old school football. Now thats what I want to see, some fire and passion from some of our players!!!!

It happened. I saw it. Here is how I saw it. Brown went up to Turk to make him not feel as bad and Turk does a hand movement and laughs at how he was trying to get around the ball but slipped. I don't think it was a laugh regarding losing but the fact that he didn't know what else to do and Brown was over there. I don't like players laughing it off though and I think after the games you seem too much acceptance.

I have been sober for almost 7 years. After half time of the Titans game I wanted a drink in a bad way and although I did not fall off the wagon that game put me in a funk. I am over it now. Now like some of the players, I am quickly reaching apathy. If they can laugh at what losers they are so can I. I think the apathy, half hearted effort and acceptance of losing needs to be slapped out of some of these players and coaches.

This is a game. Just a game.
Professional football players are paid to entertain us. That's it.

The sun still rises and sets even if your team plays bad, even if they play well. Doesn't matter.

It is nothing but entertainment, you don't like the way you are entertained, they you have to spend your time and effot on something else.

Complaining because no one was looking hostile on the sidelines or no one retailiated after the Schaub hit. Come on people get real. It is not life or death, it is just a game. These guys are businessmen playing a game.

And if a fire hasn't been lit under them by now - there is obviously no coach or player on this team that can get the rest motivated.

Robinson (and I am paraphrasing) said something about how he's upset because too many players are being friendly to opponents while the Texans are getting their butts kicked.

He said that on TV.

Maybe he needs to get up in front of his teammates if he hasn't already and light a fire under these guys.

Bob Allen asked him if he was going to say that to adress the team about that and he said he was tired of talking, it was time for people to do their jobs! Not sure if he and other have been trying behind close doors to reach this team but he is not the only one to adress this issue. D. Ryans made a point of saying players need to do their jobs and be accountable in one of his on camera interviews. Makes you wonder just how much slacking is really going on if these players are making statements to the public. Guys like Ryans and Dunta I believe try and handle it within first but the frustration is starting to show in public/

If you think about the reality of THEIR game, which has NOTHING to do with OUR game, they get real healthy paychecks, even if they suck and botch a fly away snap in the friggin endzone. They worry when next year's team is assembled. When I worked for the Saints, I found out when payday was and knew what kinds of funds/paystubs from direct deposit were being delivered to lockers and nearly had a heart attack!!!! Trust me. There are plenty of players who "work" for the NFL and do not share our pain. If I lived in digs like them and drove their rides, I might not care, either. I'm not saying it's an excuse, just a perspective that most of us will never live. Either way, I'd like to win, but I see them "kicking back" on the sidelines and somewhat equate it with my job. "We'll, we are here, we are friends, kinda need to make the best of things...and I just bought a vacation home in Aspen! You should visit." Well...of course I don't have a vacation home, but I bet a lot of these guys do.

If that makes any sense. I'm posting post surgery so things may make sense to me today that I won't understand tomorrow. ;)

Hey you make perfect sense! Hope you are well.

I have a very hard time getting rid of a book, so I will go back and check the shelves to see if I still have Jack Tatum's book titled something similar to They Call Me Assassin. One of the things I recall is him speaking about a desire to win, and how terribly upset he was to hear upon a loss that some of the teammates were happy that their playoff run was over because going further would interfere with their holiday plans. Unfortunately, his ferocious hits led to D. Stingley's career ending injury and paralysis which is something he will always have to live with. However, I do understand how frustrating it must be to a fierce competitor to work along side with lacadacious employees who is doing enough to keep drawing a paycheck.

Every Facet is not what this thread is about, this thread is about Turkey laughing on the sideline while all Texan fans are fuming because he just gave, I mean handed the Chargers 7 points, He just made the Texans the laughing stock of the NFL and not one person was in his grill except to tell a joke or something. One of the most elementary of things to learn on a football team is if the ball goes in the endzone kick the ball out before the other team gets 7 points. Not one bad look by Kubes on this either, I bet Parcells would have had the Turk doing windsprints the entire game.

Every Facet is not what this thread is about, this thread is about Turkey laughing on the sideline while all Texan fans are fuming because he just gave, I mean handed the Chargers 7 points, He just made the Texans the laughing stock of the NFL and not one person was in his grill except to tell a joke or something. One of the most elementary of things to learn on a football team is if the ball goes in the endzone kick the ball out before the other team gets 7 points. Not one bad look by Kubes on this either, I bet Parcells would have had the Turk doing windsprints the entire game.

Laughing stock is people thinking there is only one way to address a situation like that. I seem to remember a not so novel concept that laughter is sometimes the best medicine. Wow, I even think Reader's Digest had it as a feature for decades. I see nothing wrong with Kris Brown getting Turk's mind off the mistake by greeting him with "dude, you looked like a monkey attempting to fornicate a football and failing." And Turk cracking back with "well that football said it was saving itself for you." You have no way to know what was said or felt by either of those guys and save the not one bad look by Kubes comments--like the TV was trained on him the whole time, or they were standing next to him or you know what was said in the lockerroom.

fans suddenly become omniscient on heart, intentions, effort, etc.

It seems training camp is the best place for the soi-disant experts on body language, while the regular season is best for the mind readers.

Kubes had a press conference and it was not;

WE SUCKED TODAY

it was real complimentary of the team in general.

I see nothing worth complementing in a 35 point forfiture
