Frank Bush DOES NOT DESERVE CREDIT, Gruden, because this is the first game since week 1 that we've seen a Texans defense be allowed to send extra pressure.

Always with the end-of-the-season shenanigans from this team.

They benefit from the opponent's wheels falling off.

Kubiak had nothing to do with the events leading up to the sh*t, but once the sh*t starts flying, it's all on him.

different situations. We had time to run the ball. We didn't in the 4th. Also the Ravens were completely beat down. Finish them off by running the damn ball down their throats. Im not saying we shouldnt be passing. But come on, call one run play. First play almost a safety. if we didnt get picked and just had an INC we would have to pass again. That means 0 run plays planned. HORRIBLE COACHING

The Ravens were playing a prevent defense (which I really hate) and were forcing the Texans to make good throws underneath their coverage...

They were just trying to make the Texans have to drive all the way down field and not allow a big play to beat them...

In overtime the situation completely changes. The defense will be playing differently and so should your offense...You aren't playing against the clock anymore...

Run the ball...At least pick up some easy yardage...Even if you have to punt it back to them you will have moved the ball up some and won't be punting out of your own EZ...

And running the ball definitely minimizes the possibility of a pick six.

I disagree. The Ravens were exhausted. We were deep in our own end. 1st down should have been a run, even if it gets stuffed.

Exactly, there are 2 sides to this coin. I agree running makes the most sense. But what would have happened if we ran it and got stuffed and then had to punt out of our own end zone? People would say, "why take it away from the hot hand? Matty "Ice" has been wrecking all game and you take it out of his hands? He's been money!"

Are you kidding me?!?!? LOL. Wishful thinking, Chris.

Did you see him make out with his wife, in the luxury booth, when we made our comeback tonight?

By the looks of that celebration, you'd have thought that we had just won the Super Bowl!!!

He damn sure WILL give Kubiak more time.

The players have to play well in situations like this. They are auditioning for a potential new HC and staff (if the current one gets fired). I feel so bad for the players now. They repeatedly end up having to save Kubiak, repeatedly are willing to do so, and repeatedly have Kubiak and Dennison rip everyone's hearts out. Weekly.

And that, above all else, is why someone else needs a crack at this gig. A just and honorable owner would see this for what it's worth and know that his players and his fans need a new start with a new HC.

But McNair is actually content right now. The crowd was wild. We came back. Nobody "quit." It's the perfect storm for McNair staying with Kubiak.

We now have to pray for AT LEAST a new d-coord. God has to give us at least THAT much. Doesn't He?

Absolutely, and on top of this most teams dont play conservatively in OT unless they are within FG range. I've heard announcers say that alot...I know we were pinned deep but it was Schaub running the show, the OL got pushed back in his face and he couldn't see...prolly woulda been bad either way if he had held it since he was inside the pocket.

Good effort isn't enough...At my job, it doesn't matter how good my effort is if I suck for long periods of time...That's just how it is in the professional world...

And it's sad because I really like Kubiak. But he has sucked as a head coach. His teams have sucked. I am not here to lie all the blame at his feet, but he is the one that will be sacrificed...That's just the way it is.

Happy trails Kubiak (hopefully...please Bob)

Damn right buddy! No matter how much it hurts, or what you think of the coach, ya gotta be damn proud of the effort the guys put out tonite.

I'm not, we lost and gave up 34 points tonight and sucked in the first half. Yay, we snuck up again! Still lost, defense still sucks and this team and its coach sucks.

You are correct. People will whine about dumb decisions that cost us football games. What is your point?

You obviously didn't get the point of my post. Glover Quin's decision to not try to intercept the pass and be a hero was not a "dumb decision". Indubitably, it cost us the game. But it was the "correct play". Still, he was crucified on this board.

Here, it was a dumb decision. I wholeheartedly agree. I was screaming for them to run the ball.

But regardless, people are going to bawl their poor little eyes out.

Thats not fair man. As soon as the final whistle went, I posted run the crap out of their tired defense. I even made a little Arian Foster version of the run gingerbread man song. What more do you want?

And I'm sure I wasn't the only person thinking it! We should have run, I wouldve run, but we didn't, and we didn't learn from the first failed pass play. But hey ho, its how Texans football goes.

Obviously your gingerbread man failed. Build a better gingerbread man.

People whined that Glover Quin didn't try to intercept that ball...

The point is, whether the play is "correct" or not, people are going to whine.

Doesn't matter, the points being made were that people were just riding Kubes because it didn't work and suddenly everyone is a football guru. I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a technical football expert, but I am not some guy who goes out looking for the first hindsight based excuse to get someone fired.

Right, now run the heck out of them, and hit them with a couple of playfakes.

Come on H Town!

I called what we should have been doing before we did the opposite. Regardless of whether the call was 'right' or not, accusing people who are making a perfectly valid observation of jumping against the team to further their own opinions isn't right.

It's easy to say "we shoulda" after a loss. If we ran it for no gain, people would say why run when the ravens couldn't stop the pass?

If we'd ran it for no gain, I'd have said well, lets try and stop them again then, or if we'd fumbled, then I'd have been completely wrong, but we didn't.

That mindset makes my stomach hurt and I'm hoping that mindset won't keep Kubiak here.

"at least we were close"

"at least they tried"

"at least they got back in it"

"at least they played hard"

Those are just some other stomach bubblers

What exactly are your expectations? Glover should have batted the ball down. Key word "down". We agree that setting up an obvious passing play was a bad decision. Should we say nothing?

To be honest, I don't really. I think we're set with the situation we have now. ML is out of contract this off-season (correct?), and Dan O is an okay backup. Right now, this is Matt's team, and I see nothing to gain from trying to put more pressure on him - goodness knows he already feels enough strain, dealing from playcalling to dropped balls he looked ready to explode at times this evening.

My question is why waste the money we need elsewhere on a move that I feel could damage, not encourage out starting QB?

The score doesn't tell the whole story, I thought the D played as well as they have all season (with the exception of the shutout, of course.)

I mean, our offense didn't put points on the board for the first 29 minutes of the game. We had bad field position the entire first half because the offense didn't show up until the second half.

It's really hard to keep blaming the defense when you see great plays from Pollard, Quin and others. I know Kareem had a bad day again, but it's really all on Kubiak.

Schaub did a great job getting us back in it and Kubiak asked for too much by forcing the pass. He said it himself in the PC after the game.

One good thing from this game is maybe the re-emergence of OD.

This one made me laugh. I honestly had the thought that this was the NFL's first F U interception.

After weeks of having the defense rip the offenses heart out with its AWFUL play to lose the teams games after the offenses hard work, Schaub decided to give them a taste of their own medicine.

I can just see him walking into the Defenses meeting and asking them "How it feels to have the shoe on the other foot".

There's a mirage here and it isn't Schaub. Let's see, last year when he led the league in passing how did he do in the 1st half?

1st Half Comp 202 Att 296 Yds 2658 Comp % 68.2 YPA 8.98 TD 19 INT 6 Rating 109.3.

Across the board better numbers than in the 2nd half.
