A team who only won 1 game last year.

Anyone who still thinks that the Texans are anything more than an average-at-best team is an i d i o t.

Except that is a meaningless statistic. See, I can come up with a meaningless stat too:
The Texans also have the same number of wins or more than Minnesota who was the 2nd best team in the NFC last year, Arizona/Cincy(who were playoff teams). They are currently 1 game back of GB(last year playoff team), Defending Super Bowl Champ NO, and perennially tough Pitt.

See, I can also come up with ridiculous meaningless stats.

Here's a meaningless stat for you. We are 4-4, with an incredibly hard schedule coming up. How does 9 years with no playoffs sound for a meaningless stat?

i dont post here often, i realize that. but i have one question: why are most of you even fans of this team? if they make you this angry and you get this crazy after a loss, just move on. find a new team, give up football, whatever. what's the sense of getting this worked up over them if you (seemingly) won't even enjoy a victory without complaining. news flash: ***** and moan all you want, the front office isn't going to take your suggestions. you might as well just enjoy football, or sports in general, for what they are: entertainment. if you hate movies, you wouldn't go to the local theatre and pay to watch one, so if you hate the texans, why even turn them on? sure, i'm going to get bashed for saying all this, but i would really love an explanation to all this. i'm as frusterated as anyone about this team. i live in new england and have to deal with arrogant and annoying patriots fans in my ear all year talking about how much the texans suck. guess what? who gives a shit. i enjoy watching them, obviously more when they win, but i'm still going to be a fan tomorrow. what good does it do to compare their record to a team's from a year ago or compare this team to the ones in the past? either man up and be a true fan, or hop off the wagon and start fresh elsewhere, in my opinion.

They are 1 in a long line of teams who have been crappy/average one season, and then shown much improvement in the next.

As opposed to the Texans, which has some fans who think a baby-step here and there is OK, with nothing to really show for it.

The point is, that 4 straight average/mediocre seasons shouldn't be acceptable to anyone.

So, you think a true fan is one who accepts the team's situation no matter what, and doesn't expect improvement and excellence?

My definition of a true fan is one who loves the team so much, they can't stand it when a crappy product is put on the field, and demands something better.

Fan are emotionally invested in the team, which is understandable. But bitching and moaning and calling for the coaches head at the halfway point of the season is ridiculous, especially when the team isn't out of it.

Yes, the Texans have a hard schedule coming up but that doesn't mean they can't make a run of wins. I think Texans' fan have been conditioned to expect the worse and dare the team to prove them wrong and when they don't, it justifies their pessimism.

They've played what, about 8 quarters of good football all year. It's not that they are just a .500 team, and mathematically still in it, it is that they have looked like a bad team more often that not.

One of the more ridiculous posts Iíve seen in quite a while. Just because Iím pissed, support the Soap crowd, does not mean Iím not a Texan fan. Iíve been a Texan fan since day one, and am still a Texan fan. But that does NOT mean I have to excuse their bad play and coaching.

Eh, I guess it's good there are people like you out there spending hard-earned money on this nonsense. If not, we'd lose another team to relocation.

It's you isn't it?

Also, I'm not arguing that the Texans have looked extremely inconsistent this year, but to say that they are completely out of any game coming up on the schedule is pretty short sighted. Especially with the patented jump up and win 4 games at the end of the season act we've seen the past few years.

EDIT: And why register for a Texans forum when you have so obviously given up on the season already?

It's probably a good thing that you don't post often when you post this kind of garbage criticizing passionate fans that care about winning. How about you man up and expect to see a team that can actually achieve instead of patting Gary and his kids on the back and telling him that it's okay because we achieved a "moral victory." These fans that are pissed are still here looking for solutions like a new HC that knows how to put a winner together. That's called passion and ambition. You may not care about winning or success, but don't come in here with your 100 posts and criticize people who do. How about you joining the Lions band wagon since you're so quick to tell other fans to jump ship. That team would obviously suit you just fine, since winning isn't a priority of yours as a fan.

I don't know, I think if he was "very bad" as often as the Texans are this year you might be tempted. Maybe if you were emotionally invested enough in Richard Justice and his writing to frequent a message board dedicated to nothing but Richard Justice articles you might.

Weird how I'm positive about good teams, and negative about bad/underperforming teams.

I love the Texans, and am pissed off at their head coach for robbing

to suffer through this easy-to-predict travesty of season by extending
this chump.

:mariopalm: As bad as we think the Texans might be this year, they hold not a candle to the multiple failures of Justice blog pieces and his undying love for anything burnt orange. While I might throw a pithy or sarcastic comment to a new Justice thread.

Lets just say that if I put in the effort to hate on Justice on this board, that some people do to hate on Kubiak (justifiable or not) I'm sure the mods would kindly tell me to piss off and not come back.

But really though, a lot of people have me pegged as some guy who is a Kubiak lover, and in the offseason I defended him a lot of times, however I was never ever in favor of that dumbass extension he got. I did not think he performed well enough to earn another 4 years, and there were a lot of people (Some Kubiak haters) that felt it was justified.
