Kubiak continually gives the soapers reasons.

This team has no idea how to attack its opponents on either side
of the ball in the first half. A simple field goal would've won this game.

It's only fitting a Texans player literally gives the game to Jacksonville.

That's 8-19 against the division. Super-losing record, especially during
this time of the year.

That makes us 1-4 over our last five games.

I gotta say that was one of the worst ways to lose a game. I think I would have rather they just ran the ball down our throats.

I should've turned it off at halftime. There is absolutely no excuse for that offense scoring 3 points in the first half. That's your game right there.

When they got to 24-24, I thought: Houston has scored 21 points in the 2nd half; if they'd done that in the first half (like they should have), they'd be winning this game like 42-10.........................


There's your game--offense coming out with half-butt effort once again in the first half.

I can't say I'm surprised. I had a bad feeling about that play after Antonio Smith jumped offside. I thought Garrard could complete the hail mary to one of his tall receivers, over our tiny defensive backs, but I didn't think that sh!t would happen.

What in the hell was Glover Quin doing? I'm just...dumbfounded. Someone needs to be held accountable for the STUPIDITY.

HJam72
11-14-2010, 03:14 PM
The way Quinn knocked that ball "down" on the last play should tell you something about the brain power of many of our defenders. He could've just caught it. He could've actually knocked in DOWN, like straight down (or almost). No, he batted it way back into the field of play with 3 offensive players running right at it. Why? Because that's how he was taught and he has no ability to think for himself at all and make the slightest adjustment.

That ending was brutal.

Walter catches it with room to run it to the 20, but NOOOO Dreesen screwed the team over.

Then he catches the ball with a chance to just run the clock out but NOOOO he fumbles.

WTF! Dreesen you're killing me.

Then the defense lets them march 66 yards in 8 seconds where Glover Quin literally gives them the game winning touchdown.

Ya gotta love it!

We are in FG range possibly and then somehow we fumble the ball away and lose possession. Then it's going to OT, because there is no way that Jacksonville has time to even get in FG range, but no wait, they aren't going for a FG these crazy basterds are going for the end zone and by golly they get it in there!!! And the Jags celebrate at the Texans expense vie Rosencoptor style!!

I have no idea why anyone would get mad at this point after watching this stuff. It's insanity to still believe in Kubiak and Rick Smith and their adminastration when we're in year 5. The Bad Omen continues and we still have these meltdowns. All I can do is find humor in it at this point.

Dreesen this season has given me reason to dread hearing his name. I really believe they should be focusing on Casey getting reps. If the guy has so much upside then lets start focusing on making him the starter-quality player he's supposedly is capable of being. Why is this stop-gap TE still getting so many reps?

We didn't have time to kick the FG anyway. Dreeson's fumble should've only resulted in an OT session that was already inevitable.

Our offense doesn't care in the first half, which I blame completely on Kubiak, and our d has sooooo many problems, starting with DTs that just get manhaldled.

Bernard Pollard sure became the next Roy Williams in a hurry. I'll probably always have a soft spot for the guy for all his big hits but there's no way we can bring him back next season. What a gimme pick he had on that first drive, it was Dunta all over again. I'll take a guy that is completely average in coverage and a zero in run-support over either of our current safeties.

And Jacoby Jones, what a total spaz. The nearer the ball gets to his hands the more of a spaz he becomes. Yeah he has talent but I can't stand him as a WR anymore and he hasn't done squat on returns for as long as I can remember.

I still don't think that the coach should be fired in the middle of the season, but I think a change needs to be made at the end of the season.

In 2005 when the offense was epic bad the Texans fired Chris Palmer after a couple of games. It wasn't the right move because he wasn't the problem but I guess he was complicit in the great David Carr cover up. He helped them hide the fact that Carr was an entirely incompetent NFL QB for 3 years. In that case I think they fired a coach in-season and accomplished nothing. In this case I think it would be deserved and might get some peoples attention. The defense is miserable, historically bad in fact.

Still, I'd fire Bush today. I'd fire him right this second. I'd fire Gibbs too because the secondary has been appalling and it was one of his boys who literally handed the game to the Jaguars today. Plus they can't cover anybody ever. It's not just that the opposing QB is throwing the ball quickly. Sometimes I see Quin and Jackson running around and I'm like "Where in the hell is he going?" I see them release guys who go on to catch passes for first downs over and over again. Whatever they're teaching them it isn't working.

Fire Bush, fire Gibbs. See if Ray Rhodes feels like working for 7 weeks. If he thinks it will kill him then obviously that's a no-go but tell him "Hey, just do your best and don't lose any sleep over it. We're pulling the plug on this **** as soon as the season is over anyway" and let him call the defense for the rest of the year.

HJam72

Using it as an example of stupid play calling. Why were we throwing to the middle of the field with seconds left and no timeouts?

They probably used coverage schemes that had both sides covered really well. The Cover 2 tends to do that, especially in a prevent D, I would imagine. We took what we could.

The real problem in this game is that you have a top 6 offense and you score 3 freaking points in the first half. That's part of why the D got worn down and run over late in the first half. It's really just plain lack of desire on the part of a very talented offense that is just not motivated to score early and often.

But the Texans do the same thing every week, come out and spot the other team 14 points at least and attempt their comeback.

Yeah the defense is just terribly historically bad, but the offense is only good for about a quarter and a half of every game. They are a problem too.

Which is hard to believe considering the talent on that side of the ball. I don't understand how they just 'turn it on' it's not like the defense suddenly plays prevent. It usually happens in the 3rd qtr.

The horrible defense, and terrible 1st half starts have killed us. Also I think today the defense actually started well. I'd like to see how our defense would play with a solid lead behind them. They may actually look decent.

I wonder how long it takes to purchase a gun in Texas. Would they make me wait longer if I had a Texans shirt on? :thinking:

Only if you bought a shotgun. They'd be afraid it would fly over your head at a key moment.

Unless you were wearing a #90 jersey. Then they'd figure you wouldn't even show up for the purchase.

I saw Kareem Jackson put a nice pick on Cushing on a play were he got turned around like a top. Hes like George Costanza right now, all of his instincts are wrong. Hes a whirling dervish of ineptitude. And Glover, I defended him last week but **** em. **** em all.

I believe it was Eli Manning who said the Texans defense is "not sound." (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2010/10/newly_confident_giants_blow_ou.html) Seyi Ajirotutu said last week his team noticed the DBs "look inside" too much. These DBs may have the talent and instincts but are just too poorly coached.

Herv, this is not over. The Texans could still go on a 7 game win streak. The players love Kubes and want to play for him. Just think about all of the good things we've seen from this team the past 3 weeks. They're getting better.

Kubiak has burnt the ships, the progression I was hoping for in terms of 'coach-ability' is lost, it's over, I have no faith in his abality to even grasp the obvious. He's over his head, good O-cor, lost as a HC. That 'time management' before halftime settled it, he has no clue.

I with you..now...I've always thought Kubs could do it with enough time but I no longer think he has what it takes to go anywhere.

This team just doesn't have the aggression they need. I really felt like the team didn't care or want to win in the whole first half.

I'm betting Kubs told them that if they didn't at least try in the second half that he would be fired tomorrow-that got them going. I'm beginning to wonder if the players are scared to have a coach who holds them accountable...

I can understand that, I wish Kubiak would have had more confidence in his guys to go for that though. It's true Matt may throw a pick 6 or something horrible may happen, but that's true for every drive.

Yes this game was a low for the defense. Speaking of Faggins, Bennet, and Reeves...it seems like in the case of Bennet and Reeves we cut a lot of depth on the team.

With Bennet the problem wasn't him being bad...it was where he was playing. I'd rather have Bennet be my #3-4 CB over McCain. Reeves as well. At least they would push each other. It doesn't help that Quinn and Jackson can play terrible and still know with 100 percent certainty they are starting next week.

I was depressed from the start of the game. I've said it before that since little shannahan has left our offense hasen't looked the same. I know that we have been running more but, Kubiak isen't calling the right plays. The ending was typical. I was so discusted!!! The only thing that I liked that I saw was the pressure on the QB, the play of Amobi really suprised me. He looked great. Andre looked great, walter is beast #3 behind foster, and it looks like Jacoby has regressed. He is dropping passes left and right.
I don't know what to say except I wont be watching any ESPN or listening to any sport radio this week. Just thinking about the way we lost makes me sick. Typical Houston sports, but why do we expect greatness, when the only time we have tasted it was the mid 90's with the Rockets.
It sucks when you start thinking about the next season when we are only at the midway point.

The Jacksonville Jaguars don’t even run it during practice. David Garrard(notes) always fakes the deep throw and teammates act out the results.

Ain't no curse. You just need a top-flight organization (Owner, GM,
Head Coach, Coordinators, POSITION COACHES.)

The Rockets proved the curse to be a lie, twice. The Texans just haven't
hit on their front office choices yet. They still need to learn how to
recognize dead weight a year earlier than they have been (Carr, Capers/
Casserly, Kubiak.)

Another pathetic performance that wasn't surprising at all. I gave up on the season after the loss at Indy, and looking down the schedule I figure they would drop all the way to 4-10 when the last 2 meaningless games by that time come along. I was out in Big Bend last week and was glad to miss watching that pitiful performance by the team, and didn't expect much this week, and they delivered up to my expectations.

I think this team has enough talent to have a better record, even with the poor defense, if there was a competent coach roaming the sideline. Why do the Texans even have a offensive coordinator if Kubiak is going to call the plays? He has enough problems managing a game even when there is someone else making the play calls.

I'm also numb to the pain of watching this team, and don't care anymore. At this point I just figure they lose out and give the next GM and coach a high pick for next year.
