Biggest 1st down of the game.

And that's a wrap. Clicked out of NFL.com Game Center and am now officially pissed. When do the Rockets play again?

2nd/6 37: McFadden brought down by Mario... 2 min warning shortly.

That rush for a first was the game-ender.

Looking forward hearing the excuses for this loss.

that is a load of crap

I'm the biggest anti-Schaub guy out here...and I must say that AJ DID quit on that route.

This whole team looked sloppy. Steve Slaton excluded.

AJ gets in a funk early on and can't snap out of it.

Schaub is by no means excluded from this debacle, but you can tell he feels like everyone around him is playing in slow-motion.

Playcalling on both sides of the ball has been atrocious today. Atrocious.

Well, the boards should light up this week.

How's that feel Mr. McNair - think we need to do some changes this offseason?

He stopped running his in route after he figured he wasn't going to get the ball. Schaub was pissed at him even though he should have never thrown it there in the first place.

Silver Lining:

At least our quarterback won't be smiling during the postgame
interview. David Carr was notorious for that.

R.I.P Texan's hope of a winning season.

Blame Kubiak all you want, but we gave up 27 freaking points to the effin' Raiders.

Richhhhhhhhard Smithhhhhhhh.


Kubiak has been the one who decided to keep him all this time, so yea I blame Kubiak.

Man, this team can not win when anything is on the line. We have a chance to have our first winning season and lay an egg against the Raiders. As good as it felt last week beating the Titans, it feels as bad this week. I was on such a cloud 9 and then they play like this causing me to crash. Thanks a lot. :wild:

Yeah TexansChick was right as usual. Our defense sucks and has made the Raiders look like they have a playoff caliber offense.

What's worse is Slaton has done nothing, and our entire offense has looked pathetic. AJ has been neutralized as well. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so you know the playcall wasn't for the ball to be thrown on an out route? schaub threw a bad ball, simple as that.

The return of the infamous "Bend But Don't Break" defense.

Props to the Raiders: They did to us what we had been doing to other teams the past four weeks, which is being aggressive on both sides of the ball and playing like your life depended upon it.

We, on the other hand, appeared as if Kubiak got the whole team lost on the way to California and just rolled up to the stadium as the game was starting.

This game felt all wrong from the opening scoring drive by Oakland.

In AJs defense when it takes you 3+ Q's to throw the ball to the best WR in the league he should be pissed. I wouldn't be upset if AJ walked up to Kubes, Shanny and Schaub and punched them all in the ****ing face.

I am just pissed. Needed to say that.

Pissed.

There is no way we lose to that turdy team. Our defensive playcalling was exactly like it was the first half of the season. Stupid-ass four-man front with no pressure on a QB who has done jack squat all year...until he played US.

Oline getting Schaub touched and hurried all game long.

Schaub has a right to be pissed. He led this team against GB and Tennessee, and the supporting cast TODAY was in La-La Land all freaking game.

Why is AJ on the bench?

This team just went "Soap OPera," that's what happened.

AJ pouts when he doesn't get fed the ball early on, then he plays lazy because he isn't in a groove, and then at the end of the game when he's needed...he doesn't finish routes and he doesn't give a crap.

He's a Pro Bowler, just not TODAY.

Yeah it seems that way. What I am really trying to understand from this game: is our offensive line just terrible or is our defensive line the terrible unit? I mean they seemed to be getting pressure on Schaub, although he got rid of the ball, all game, yet we were hardly ever getting pressure on Russell other than that sack/fumble by Okoye.

He just quits on the field, goes into a shell, and disappears.

This whole team sucked today. Coaches included.

Could be worse.

We could be the Jets, choking away our playoff spot.

All this loss did was show the Texans they have to play hard to win, and improve our draft position.

8-8, let's go.

This would have been nothing more than a moral victory and hopes of our first 9-7 season (for pure bragging rights). It still hurts because it was against the Raiders, but, there is nothing we can do.

The way they were playing defense we really should have concentrated on establishing the run and then started passing.

Sway
12-21-2008, 07:06 PM
The first drive that they let Oakland score I knew it was going to go bad. I don't know what it was, but they just didn't play right... Of course Schaub is going to throw at LEAST one INT because that's what he does.... but come on...NOTHING went right. It felt like those first games where a few of the guys were tryiing to pull all the weight from those that had their heads too busy stuck up their a&&. What hurts the most is that last week I felt like we really made a giant leap, and then ....this loss.....well, at least for the franchise, I know it's going to mean a lot more than last week's win. ...And before the game was even over, I heard it on the tv. Sad. Only thing I can be somewhat pleased with is my boy OD. He did what he could, but that's not what matters. I need help. :gun:

Yeah I noticed that....a LOT more defensive plays should've been made. There were a couple of plays that COULD have been picked off by the secondary, but I really feel like they thought this was a 'gimme'. ... I guess I did too, but Goddam! I'm not the one PLAYING!!!

Actually, this may have improved your odds of winning. They will be home and coming off an embarrassing loss. I look for them to come out with some fire....you know, that thing that was missing today.

It's still possible we could end up with a losing season. I can't bear the thought of that. We have to beat Chicago and go 8-8, because 7-9 is just to horrible to think about.

At least jacksonville lost so if all else fails us this season, we have at least escaped last place in our division for this year.

Some post game quotes are up at HT.com (http://www.houstontexans.com/news/Story.asp?story_id=5042) not too many players must've talked this time, wasn't much posted.

said by Gary Kubiak
(on what he said to the team after the game) “How disappointed I am. Like I told Rick (Smith), we go and beat the best team in football and if we are not ready to go, anybody can beat us, too. That’s part of this game, and I knew that before this game started. That’s part of the NFL. As I told them, it always starts with me. Obviously, I didn’t have them ready to play.”]

Ya know, it was cool in the beginning that he took responsibility for the team... but this is starting to go the route of the "execute" key word. Fine, thanks for standing in front of the bus then falling on the sword afterwards... but if it's starting with you, then finish it up.

Oh, then the 3rd/4th and inches...
“I felt good about the play,” Kubiak said. “I know you kick a field goal there and get it within a touchdown and a two-point conversion. We had some momentum right there and we were going to have to do something special to come back and win that game. I liked my play I had. I thought they would come after us. They didn’t come after us. We still had a chance with Kevin, but that’s me and my gut feeling making that call.”

I wonder... do they ever change a call at the line if it looks like the defense is going to bring something different than what you thought? Or do we still do the HWSNBN method?
