It's a freaking game, get over it. I don't give a crap how much you or anyone is crying about this. It's a freaking game. You can talk about firing someone, cutting someone(from the roster:rolleyes:), yelling at someone, heck insulting them and calling them stupid..but jokes about burning and murder, well sorry for thinking that's over the top. You can find another way to illustrate just HOW angry you are without losing civility and class.

Come on folks, this is sports, not life or death.

Yeah, I'm bummed as hell. Yes, I'm sick of this franchise finding a new way to rip a fan's heart out week after week. And I'm really unhappy with a particular player's mistakes late in the game, which is all the more unfortunate because he was playing a damn good game until he started trying to do too much.

And yes, we need to vent. And within a sports context, looking at what went right and, ultimately (unfortunately), what went wrong.

Joking about bodily harm is just not funny. Especially when you consider there have been soccer players in the worlds who HAVE been killed after making really boneheaded plays that cost the game.

I'm totally "civil".

But Sage should have been cut & run out of the stadium before the game even ended. This is just unacceptable.

For some people that is the way they vent. I completely understand. There is no "putting things in perspective" about football being a game. For some people, this is what they thrive on or bluntly s**t on a daily basis. This is serious. So if our team is not showing the fire that some of us will display then there is a serious problem with the team. By the way, did you think the Colts thought it was just a game?

Honestly I really feel sorry for Sage right now. From everything I've heard he's a pretty descent guy and liked and respected by his teammates. Maybe not too much right now though, huh ?
The Texans bounce-back attitude in this game after last weeks heartbreaking OT loss was admirable, so I wonder about next week ? Gonna be even tougher to come back and produce a sustained effort after this kind of loss.

Are you serious? You're worried about people burning sage on a message board? I'd be more worried about real life. Look that guy is what he is. He's a backup. That's all. I don't know why this was a shock to anybody. He has taken risks with the ball his entire career. That's probably why he's a backup. No wait. That IS why he's a backup.

Is tar and feathering not considered a reasonable request. It was a legitimate punishment up until only about 150 years ago.

I'll repeat what I've been saying for weeks now.

I loved the Oilers, I endure the Texans.

Seriously, being a fan of these guys is like a damned endurance trial or something. It's like running some sort of fan abuse gauntlet.

Additionally I just want everyone to know that every single person who is typing or saying that "it's just a game" and "Why get so upset over..." BS needs to go log off. If it's not that important to you then why are you here and who asked you to take time out of your busy schedule to try and grief counsel the rest of us?

Today I'm dealing with some good stuff here. I've got a case of Heineken and I'm thinking that the Texans are maybe the worst franchise in the history of the NFL. They make the Oilers look pretty damned good in comparison (even with that Sunday in Buffalo thrown in). I don't think I've seen another team sign a free agent QB that a team as bad as the Miami Dolphins declined to bring back, then convince themselves that a decent streak of play meant that he was a starter, THEN decline to trade his mediocre butt because they weren't getting decent value for the guy that the Dolphins saw no value in, then get bit in the ass like the Texans did today by said "supposed" starter.

I saw this coming last year. No, not this exact scenario. I just saw the Texans and many of you guys acting like Sage was something special and just knew that it was time to sell while the dudes stock was high.

The next person to EVER say that Sage is a better QB over Schaub will get donkey punched by me.

First the Cubs, now the Texans with the most heart-breaking, dumb-founding loss of their history. We sat in stunned silence watching the end of that game. One man cost them the game, plain and simple. Everyone else played a damn good game, and Sage gives the game away completely. Who was he even throwing to on that interception?

Now we have 35-3, Stagger Lee, The River Game in Three Rivers 1979, The 'Renfro', Montana to Cash, Elway's 'Other' Comeback, Buddy's Punch, and now we have Sage's Surprise. Granted, Sage's chokejob was regular season but were the Texans, its not like we are postseason material anytime soon. Take what you can get.

No one feels worse about this than Sage Rosenfelds, maybe his wife. The guy was one season away from a forty to sixty million dollar contract. That got left on Reliant's floor with three something left on the clock. Makes you feel better boo him. He can't feel any worse than he already does. Not many of us can say that we know what losing forty million bucks is like. Sad thing about it is they played the best game of the last two years. Went from their best to their worst very quickly.

I have been hating this team for a while now. I gave some truly serious thought to unloading the PSLs and season tix this past off-season, but I decided to stick it out another year. No more. I'll watch on TV and I'll hope and pray, but I am selling the PSLs and tix ASAP. I am hoping that my anger levels will decline proportionally with my financial investment.

Like you, I have been pissed off all day. My wife knows better than to even talk to me and I haven't been answering the phone. Any hobby/side interest/whatever the %$^& this is shouldn't become masochism. This is taking years off my life, I swear.

I'm so sick of feeling this way about this team... I still love'em, and I always will, there's just no way to stop that... but man, I hate having this feeling every friggin' Sunday. It ruins my day (and my wife's).

The really horrible thing about this game though, is that for me - there's a world of difference between 0-3 and 0-4. If they were 1-3, I could have felt "hey, our one win is against a pretty good Colts team (despite their record) and we can now realistically win 3 more at home against some less-elite opponents."

Instead - even if we win next week, what am I going to say? "Yay, we're 1-4, and our win is against a Dolphins team that was 2-2, and if we win two more in a row, we'll be 3-4."

Big whoop.

So yeah, this one stings like hell... and even if we win the next three weeks, it's going to be hard for me to get excited about it. Beating a solid team like Indy would have gone a LONG way to some really positive feelings - especially since we could've all looked at each other REALISTICALLY and said - "hey, we can definitely be 4-3 in a few more weeks."

I'm usually over these things in a few hours....still quite depressed after today. Unlike most of you, I'm without solutions like fire so and so, cut that guy, trade for, etc. I had that sinking feeling after the Colts went in to bring the score within ten points, but kept telling myself, they won't blow it. Apparently I'm psychic like a few of you, or maybe I've just come to the point of being a fan of this team, where I expect them to screw it up.
I have come to the conclusion, I'm doomed to never have an NFL team I can have any pride in. It's difficult enough living in Cowboy country without an atrocity like today's game.

I think the Colts WERE a pretty good team, but so far this season have dealt with injuries and such that make them average. A win against them would have been a win against an Average team.

Arguably, the Texans should be 3-1 right now, with all 3 wins within the division.. talk about a wet dream ruined...

Bad Teams lose games the way the last 3 have been lost... there's no other way to put it.

Rosenfels is the likely goat this week, but I still put mismanagement of the game on the shoulders of GK.

I'm braced for 'another' LOOONG season.
