I needed a place to vent my non-logical concerns about this team. I realize its only been 1 game, but we all need a place where we can shout it out without worrying. So heres mine:

Kubiak said the "E" Word. NOO!

(on if he tried to change anything at halftime) “No, not really. We didn’t execute well.

Way too many mentions of Carr in the game thread. Baaaad Carrma (ugh, sorry). But can I blame them? No. :gun:

As long as we are going chicken little....

Who are the early candidates to go number 1 in the 2009 NFL Draft?

Here is Mel Kiper's early big board for all you hand-wringers out there:

Well, JMO here. BUT, I wouldn't expect ANYONE to EXECUTE if they are not PREPARED to execute to start with. Blame the players all you want for "not executing" plays guys, but, IMHO, it starts at the top, and the TOP looked pretty pathetic yesterday.

Schaub was the worst I had ever seen him. I hope he bounces back, because Sage is getting more and more appealing.

Toss up for our top 5 pick between OL Michael Oher or DE Michael Oher. Oher brings a nasty attitude to the OL and should fit in nicely with our system. Has the versatility to play any position on the line less Center. The middle of our line is awful and I would completely support the pick of a T/G combo if it means we'd finally solidify our line. Johnson would anchor the other DE spot and we'd finally have our bookends to rush the QB. Our defense will continue to be weak until we get a DE opposite mario and quite possibly a legit NT.

oh and having two te's in your top 10 is a joke... oh yea forgot you said this is kiper's board.

He looked way off in the Cowboy game as well. He was forcing the ball into double coverage and was lucky not to have one or two more picks. I still don't understand that one he threw to Anderson and it was picked off, Johnson looked pretty open 10 yards farther down the field.

I don't care who we have at QB, RB, WR, CB, LB. When both of our lines get thrown around like rag dolls, we don't stand a chance. It all starts and ends in the trenches. We need to get better there first and foremost! Especially on offense as the OL was pathetic, but they both have to get better or it's going to be a long season.

No doubt. Get some JV coaches in here to teach these guys how to tackle and block, the basic fundamentals of the game. They just looked overwhelmed and under-prepared yesterday. The Steelers owned every aspect of the game, from coaching on down.

I'm not saying the sky is falling, but yesterday did cause me to look up, just in case.

This franchise is using up a lot of good will and patience.

The Steelers made Manning look terrible in the playoffs a few years ago. Pressure on the QB will do that.

Tom Brady got more of the same from the Giants in the Superbowl. The Pats only put 14 on the board in that one.


We played against the #1 Defense from last year while trying to implement a new running scheme...

Oh...wait....this is the Chicken Little thread...

eerily similar.

Thats right, 04/05 compared to 07/08 are very similar to each other.

How you may ask?

in 04 the Texans finished 7-9 to at home against the Cleveland Browns. A former divisional opponent. 7-9 was the best record for our young franchise.

07 the Texans finished 8-8 at home against a current divisional opponent marking the best record in franchise history.

Both Texan QB's wore #8.

Both 05 and 08 drafts saw the Texans take a lineman with there first pick.

Both 05 and 08 season openers where on the road to north eastern teams and were beat like a drum.

Both 05 and 08 Texans went into the season pinning a lot of there hopes on an oft injured RB.

Both Texan QB's wore #8

Both 06 and 09 drafts will see a Junior that is talented who is a running QB, and a national title winner enter the draft.

I hear ya, but you have to agree that Tom Brady's offense scored those points. Our offense didnt even sniff the steelers side of the field until mop up time.

The real score of that game was 38-3 and the defense is the only reason we were in field goal range. The other 14 points were when the steelers had already won, and went into a dont get injured mode.

2005 and 2008 we got our asses kicked by the Steelers.

Considering the Giants went from 0-2 to win the superbowl and Cleveland went from 0-2 to win 10 games, we can still have a winning season. It isn't the end of the world.

Yep, if we didn't we'd go insane. At least I would. I've been watching Houston pro football since the early to mid 70's and have been drug through heartbreak time after time. I suppose humor is my way of dealing with the heartbreak.

The thing that is frustrating all of us is the lack of competitive fire that the Texans have displayed too, too many times. I don't expect the team to go undefeated, but at least lose while showing some heart. Don't let a m'fer choke you down to your knees without at least going for a sack punch. Fight, damn you, FIGHT! Don't roll over and give up and get b'slapped Ike Turner style-"You gone take this ass whooping Texans, and you gone take it like I tell you to take it!" Their should have at least been a couple of scuffles in the third quarter. I want nastiness! I want Joey Porter, Bryan Cox, Rodney Harrison type nastiness. Stop being so f'ing "Aw shucks" like this FO wants you to be and get dirty for once! AAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!.......

We are not a great road team to begin with and having to spend the first month of the season on the road is tough. I hope somehow we can play better against Jacksonville to have some confidence when the Colts come to town. The Colts are so beatable this year but we need to play fired up to do it.
