But three days later, I'm still not over Sunday's game. I'm trying to be positive over the rest of the season, but they aren't making it easy.

I still believe in this team, & 1 more bad game away from verbally lashing out against this coaching staff.

lol, i guess you missed it:

We'll win out.

I've been seeing some really good football, more & more consistently over the last 4 weeks, & we're still shuffling starters in the game because of injuries or whatever.

This team has got it, this coach has got it..... we're right there.

Only thing I'm seeing lacking so far, is that our offense isn't clicking out of the gate. I think we fix that next week, & we win out.

I heard the game on the radio, I didn't get to see it, so I don't know how bad/good it was. From the game day thread, & what I heard on the radio, the team played well for the most part. A few drops by the receivers, missed blocking assignments on a screen, and a few defensive errors, but a good day for the defense (relatively speaking).

Not using a timeout at the end of the first half, doesn't make sense to me. If we had any timeouts at the end of the game, the one thing I would have done differently, is call a timeout after the first big play they gave up... called the team to the sideline & gave them a little pep talk with a little time to breath.

I know he eventually did this, but too late. I've been saying this, since the Giants game, with this defense, you've got to use your timeouts like it were a basketball game. Break up the momentum, don't let it get started. I know he would have caught slack for it, but with this defense, he's got to do it.

I don't know who was in the game, when he was rushing 4 & playing prevent... if he rushed less than 4, and dropped a lineman into coverage, Sumbitz needs to be fired. If he had 4 linemen, & it wasn't Mario, Smith, Okoye, & Anderson, Sumbitz needs to be fired. If he went prevent with 50 seconds left in the game, & he didn't have 6 DBs on the field..... Sumbitz needs to be fired.

To allow a team to go 70 yards in 50 seconds with no timeouts... & score a TD.... inexcusable.

Again, I didn't watch the game, I was at work & only heard bits & pieces on the radio.

It didn't sound that bad. Sounds like our defense answered the call for 3.85 Quarters, & our offense showed up in the 4th to try to "save the day" by digging us out of a hole we shouldn't have been in.

I was in the game day thread, saying about all the negative crap I care to say about this team at this time.

I think we should all go back & read all the posts in all the threads since the Jaguar loss. That should remind us what the expectation of this team in this game was.... it sure as hell wasn't having a 27-23 lead with 0:50 left in the game. Far from it.

If we came into this game 6 & 3 and lost this game, I don't believe the attitude of the board would be that this was 3 quarters of pathetic football. We'd have lost to a good team... redeemed ourselves by putting 27 points on the team that spanked us last year. We'd still be pissed about the last minute breakdown.

It sucks that we came into this game losing the previous three... That's on the Texans, they put themselves in this situation, & need to find whatever it is they'll need to win out..... The Chargers game was more upsetting than this game, because we controlled it for the most part & gave it away at the end.

The Colts game was more upsetting, because we know the Colts couldn't keep us off the field if we would have done what we know we could do.... run the ball. Still no guarantee we would have won that game, but we would have been dictating instead of asking for permission to speak.

The Jaguars game was more upsetting than this game, at least the Jets have a defense. Colts, Chiefs, Chargers, Jets... those are the teams we've lost to over the last 5-6 weeks... all of them much better defensively than the Jags... but the Jags told us when to stand up & when to sit down.... very bad taste in my mouth....

But this wasn't 3 quarters of pathetic football.

But they're not 6-3 and we've seen this act all season long. 3 quarters of pathetic football is the team slogan. If they were 6-3 and they had a game like this where they play 3 quarters of pathetic football, then you chalk it up to every team has a game like that. The Texans have had at least 8 games like that. Maybe if they ever decide to play more than 1 quarter of good football they'd be one of those 6-3 teams.

Ok guys how about this.

Frank Bush needs to be fired before they get to back to Houston, & here's why.

The final touchdown play, there are two receivers on top. Our two corners are up top... man coverage.

The receivers run crossing routes, like they've done every game, multiple times per game, and our Corners get picked....

We've never stopped a reception when the other team decides to run those routes.

Sooner or later, you'd think Frank Bush would learn that the corners need to switch men, don't try to follow the receivers. Outside man stays outside, on top of the receiver... there's no way he'll catch a fade. The Corner would have to look out for the back shoulder throw, but he'll have the fade covered.

We fall for it, every time.

I understand what you are saying.

I'm saying if you look at this game by itself, it wasn't bad. There haven't been 8 games like this one. Our defense did a fine job for 3.85 qtrs. they gave up 330 yards of offense & 23 points to a team that averages. 362 yards & 23 ppg.

The offense was pathetic for 3 Quarters.... I'll give you that.

Like I said, I haven't watched the whole game, so I can't say how bad they were. 30 points don't tell the whole story, & neither does the 401 yards of offense.

I know the defense played well enough for us to have a 21-20 lead in the first half. Didn't happen, but that's not the defenses fault. I know it's asinine to expect our 5th ranked offense to score 21 points in one half against the best defense in the league...... but we scored 20 points in the 4th Qtr........

Is it too much to ask, to not go 3 & out 4 times??

Defensively, we played good enough to win, up till the last 50 seconds.

So you're saying our defense did not play well today, because we allowed 30 points.

If we had only allowed 27, would you have said we played well?

is the cut-off for good defense 28 points or something.

You're going to have to help me understand what you are saying, because it's not making sense, compared to what happened.

I know if that last TD play didn't score, they would have done something else and got their TD..... so it probably really doesn't matter.

But I think Frank Bush should get fired for the way the defense played that last play. The corners should have switched receivers there in the endzone, not man. We've been burned on that one again & again & again.

On this play the DBs needed to be on the outside. They were not and the receiver was able to get out of bounds and stop the clock...that's bad position coaching to me.

Texan Bill, I've already held players accountable......remember my "Chris Myers" rant......or Chris Brown, Steve Slaton, Ryan Moats rants. Last season's "Playoffs or bust" statement by Bob McNair, followed by the celebration of a underachieving 9-7 record and out right acceptance of mediocrity was enough for me to realize that the main problem goes WAY BEYOND the players and it starts at the top. The players aren't going to change until the coaches do.

The players change, but the same "WTF??/how did they lose that game??" moments still occur. Glover Quinn was not here during the Rosencoptor play and neither was Allen....but yet we continue to break NFL records in ways to lose. It isn't mainly a personnel problem as much as it's coaching.

What else do you want them to do? Everyone in the backfield is rotating with someone except Quin & Pollard.

Wilson switches with Nolan & they both screw up.

Allen, Jackson, & McCain has a little rotation going with a little McManis thrown in there.

What else can you do but blame the coaches for getting one bum to split snaps with another bum.











Not that I think they are bums or anything, but from the soapers perspective..... they're all bums, it's not like we're swapping DBs because of injuries.

Its funny you say that but we don't even need to make a play. All we need to do is prevent the big play. How hard is that?

As for your second point, these are all on Kubiak. He is the HC, thats what comes with the territory. He hired the DC, which apparently is so bad he actually made our defense worse. Bush isnt calling the plays and schemes that should be called but once again, it all comes back to Kubes. On the other note, if we were 7-3 he would be getting praised.

I am completely sick to my stomach of how today went. I now go into each game expecting to lose but after we fought back into the game and scored 17 points in 10 minutes, my hopes went thru the cieling.......only to come back crashing down to earth.

This pathetic piece of ******* team/staff/organization completely rips my heart out and pisses on it damn near every weekend and as always, I come back for more every time.

I need Mcnair to make a change for Christ Sake's. Its effing ridiculous how we are once again wishing and hoping for next year. I feel like this around week 8 every damn year. Its crap and Im tired of it.

Again, I didn't watch the game, I was at work & only heard bits & pieces on the radio.

It didn't sound that bad. Sounds like our defense answered the call for 3.85 Quarters, & our offense showed up in the 4th to try to "save the day" by digging us out of a hole we shouldn't have been in.

I was in the game day thread, saying about all the negative crap I care to say about this team at this time.

I think we should all go back & read all the posts in all the threads since the Jaguar loss. That should remind us what the expectation of this team in this game was.... it sure as hell wasn't having a 27-23 lead with 0:50 left in the game. Far from it.

If we came into this game 6 & 3 and lost this game, I don't believe the attitude of the board would be that this was 3 quarters of pathetic football. We'd have lost to a good team... redeemed ourselves by putting 27 points on the team that spanked us last year. We'd still be pissed about the last minute breakdown.

It sucks that we came into this game losing the previous three... That's on the Texans, they put themselves in this situation, & need to find whatever it is they'll need to win out..... The Chargers game was more upsetting than this game, because we controlled it for the most part & gave it away at the end.

The Colts game was more upsetting, because we know the Colts couldn't keep us off the field if we would have done what we know we could do.... run the ball. Still no guarantee we would have won that game, but we would have been dictating instead of asking for permission to speak.

The Jaguars game was more upsetting than this game, at least the Jets have a defense. Colts, Chiefs, Chargers, Jets... those are the teams we've lost to over the last 5-6 weeks... all of them much better defensively than the Jags... but the Jags told us when to stand up & when to sit down.... very bad taste in my mouth....

But this wasn't 3 quarters of pathetic football.

I think you really need to go watch the game. The score was 23 to 7 at the beginning of the 4th quarter. I don't care who we are playing, 7 points through 3 quarters of football is pathetic. It felt a lot like the Cowboys game up to that point. Their defense was much better than the 27 points showed, as most of those can be credited to turnovers by the offense deep in their territory.

The 4th quarter is when the defense woke up, got pressure on Sanchez to force an INT, Cushing forced a fumble from Greene, and our offense converted 10 points out of those. The defense gave them great field position with a quick stop, which lead to a bad punt by the Jets. The ensuing drive starting near midfield led to a TD. Our defense was giving the offense great opportunities and they were able to score 20 points in the 4th thanks to short fields.

Of course you know how it ended, which is why I say they played 14 minutes of good football. Even still, those 14 minutes give me some hope for the future of this team and some insight to the potential of our players. However, I don't think any of that talent will be put to good use this season given the people coordinating it all. If they played like they did in the 4th quarter of this game for a full game, I would be right with you predicting 10-6...

I couldn't give another Texan fan this advice. He's better off keeping this debacle unseen.

I now suspect Tkyss just likes attention or being contrary for the sake of it...



You just now figured that out?

LMAO!

To be honest, it took me a while to catch on, too. When he stated last week that Rod Marinelli shouldn't have been fired despite going 0-16, I was pretty much done paying attention to his posts.

True, but if you look deeper into it, the defense did stop the Jets offense enough times. The problem was, our offense didn't do anything to capitalize on it. They went three and out, or had very short drives. That only tires our defense even more. You can't expect them to keep stopping the Jets, when they are constantly put back on the field? Once our offense started playing better (in the fourth quarter) and had longer drives, our defense got the rest it needed and came out and played better. Caused two turnovers, with one being in the last two minutes. Our offense couldn't do a damn thing with it, except get the usual field goal.

Field goal, punt, punt...... that's the Jets in the 1st Qtr.
punt, punt, punt......... that's us.

we finally score a TD, our defense allows a TD, we then go 3 & out. We hold them to a field goal, we waste 58 seconds, & save a timeout to go into halftime.

We start the second half.... force a long field goal. Our offense comes out, goes 3 & out. Defense allows a TD, offense goes 3 & out. We force them to punt, score is 20-7 Jets.

We fumble the ball. I know it's a fluke, but it's always a fluke.

We're not even in the game, if the defense doesn't step up & play even better...

We never should have been down 20-7.

Maybe we should be rotating Pollard out for someone who has some idea of what pass coverage is.

Pollard had a solid day .... Eugene Wilson and Troy Nolan were both pretty bad Sunday.
Wilson had deep responsibility on the play that got them into scoring range with 10 sec left .... he was out there playin will it go round in circles. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhap_K8X3yM) :smiliepalm:

I believe Nolan had deep responsibility on Santonio Holmes first long TD and took a really shitty angle after being out of position to begin with - What should have been a nice gain turned into a TD because of that.


Anyone on that defense makes a play during that final possession we put the pink soap away for a week at least.
