This probably isn't the right forum for this thread so Mods may move if they choose to do so. I've seen some voice fights going on when there really isn't and need for it. We all want the samething the Texans to win but each and everyone of us have different feelings of how to reach the same goal. Some posts on here that attack each other are silly. This should remain a friends and family first board as I have always considered it as being and have told many folks about. How the team does is way behind our control I am not singling out anyone but I am reaching out to all of you to keep TT a friendly board while posting your thought on any of the forums on this board. Vocie how you feel and show your Texans sprit still keeping in mind that it's just a game and life goes on no matter who wins or who has different thoughts. We're all fans and friends and we're all here for each other when needed and that's what makes this board so great and the most important thing. IMO, have a football team to cheer for is secondary to the great bunch of friends I have here on this board who I'll always have and I know is always going to be there for everryone. Go Texans

Very well said. Thank you for putting things into perspective. Like the saying goes, "We complain because we care."

I hear you Gary:

I’m all for healthy discussion, disagreement and debate. Throwing blanket statements towards those that may disagree with you gets tiresome. Fine, so and so sucks, explain why you think so and leave it at that. Please un-attach any preconceived notion about the people that may disagree with you.

Example: I think Chris Myers sucks because he gets destroyed at the LOS.
(This can be agreed on to disagree)

Much better than: I think Chris Myers sucks because he gets destroyed at the LOS and people that can’t see that are too filled with homer blinders and (well you get the point).
(This sucks and there's no need for it).


That said, my apologies to Tex and the board.

Thanks Gary, I have been lurking and not posting much because I haven't liked a lot of what I have seen lately. Good post and a timely reminder.

The good and the bad....however it may end up on any given weekend, this is what gives us this community. I moved to LA over 3 years ago, but I will always bleed "Battle Red" for my Texans. Verses being on the field playing with the band, I've got to try one hell of a lot harder to follow my team, but I do it....and I'll continue to do this no matter what. I was an employee of the Texans, and I can tell you that they WILL get it right. McNair is THE class owner of the NFL (from my experience), and he's just way too smart and much too wealthy to not figure this out......which is why it may take some patience on our behalf. He didn't get to where he is by making flippant decisions. This guy is a steady, reliable businessman. The most successful people in business hire the best people they can, and then they let them do their job. McNair isn't going to make any rash moves with Kubiak....and deservedly so. Look at Jeff Fisher and the Titans as a relative example (I mean other than THIS year.....hee hee - hey they are getting really old now).

The way that expansion franchises have been initiated into the league has changed......and I think we're steadily headed in the right direction, and I'll take this slow "stability" and steadfast approach over the "flash-in-the-pan" example of Carolina. I went to the Texans @ Oakland game last year, and let me tell you....those are some terrific fans in Oakland, despite the recent history of their team. They are truly "Die-Hards", and I have a great deal of respect/appreciation for them. It's clearly easier for me to go to a Raider's game vs. my Texans to get my NFL fix (I know that SD is waaay closer...that's just not an option!), and from MY experience at Oakland( It'd be really easy to just cheer for a proven winner, but I guess that I "get" the Raiders), I'm pleased to adopt them as my "surrogate" team. It's just gonna make it all that much better for them when they have some success.....at the same time, they really taught me how much "gameday" is MUCH more about the people that come together for such things, and THAT experience, vs. the final score. I hope that my fellow Texan fans can see this forest for the trees and remain loyal to our team.


We haven't REALLY struggled....yet - Of course, I prefer to win....just sayin.

No. No it can't be disagreed on. Chris Myers sucks at the line. When's the last time a team used a 1st on a center? Maybe that time is due...

This is how I also have been feeling the past two days.

I'm tired of coming here and being around the keyboard warfare. I know I've fallen into the trap before, but this time I had made a conscious decision after watching the Cards-Texans game that I was going to try to come here and be sensible. Maybe even optimistic to a fault.

I just have a feeling that things are going to fall into place somehow. I think the line is a thin one, and we've been walking that line--teetering upon it and trying to figure out which side of it to fall off of.

This Brian Cushing player is special, guys. I know 'Meco has tenure here. I know he's got seniority. But Cushing is like Ditka, Singletary, Kevin Greene, Ray Lewis, Zac Thomas, or Urlacher. The guy is a laser beam with his focus and performance. It's instinctual.

With him and 'Meco, this team--both offense AND defense--is taking on a tougher personality. Pollard is tough on the runners. Reeves is back. Dunta is a good run tackler, average pass defender. Mario is Mario. Heck, even AJ caught a pass and delivered a highlight reel lick on the d-back, and then drug two more into the end zone with him. Schaub almost made the comeback of all comebacks. 21 unanswered points, and almost a game-sealing drive except for the decision to throw across the field.

I have a good feeling.

Gary, you suck. Period. The only thing that keeps me from going INSANE when its slow at work is watching some of these fools break out the keyboard claws. Ok so maybe you don't suck, maybe you're right.. but it was a lot of fun watching the drama.
