I saw this (http://prod.www.texans.clubs.nfl.com/tv-media/videos/Players-react-to-loss-in-Tennessee/db49b841-db59-471e-b6ce-106ccd2301bb) interview with Winston, Antonio and Arian. Foster is the last segment at about the 1:50 mark. My home speakers aren't the best and he kinda mumbles but it sounds to me like he said he was ready to go back in and just didn't get the call. Did I misunderstand? Or is he being saved for next year?

Well, he said he was ready to go back in, and healthy. But, he had been limping earlier. Just very dissapointed in the loss.

Some dumbass on the radio just said, the reason the Texans held him out is because they dont want to pay any bonuses he may have in his contract....BTW a Cowboys fan. :wadepalm:

knowing the cheapskate we have in the owner's box, maybe he called his buddy Kubiak who is 'on the right track' and told him to sit him down so he doesn't get the stats.

That way McNair won't have to pay the NFL's leading rusher, the NFL's leading rusher money when its time to pay the piper.

maybe I am being a little cynical, but it wouldn't surprise me. being the 'NFL leading rusher' is a pretty good bargaining chip. Now that chip is to be squashed it seems...

Either that or they FINALLY made a good freakin' choice and gave one of our stars a rest! Everybody on here knows how short the shelf life of an NFL back is, why would we want to send out Foster in a meaningless game when he is less than 100%? Limit his touches in the last few games, pay him, reap the rewards next season. Simple.

That's what crossed my mind. Hell, AJ's been playing with a high ankle sprain since the second game and he's not sitting. I did see Jacoby getting a lot more snaps Sunday though so maybe they're resting him a little but I did think about *someone* not wanting him to get the title. If there's any truth to that, well it just sux.:foottap:

1. The run had been ineffective all game

2. We were down by multiple TD

3. Pretty sure Foster will be a ERFA

4. The Texans have no problems paying players, especially deserving players

Bob certainly deserves criticism, and lots of it. There's no reason to levy false criticism.

i would expect this from you and maybe a few others on this board and I could count them on one hand. Needless to say I am going to take this with me and give it to Bob Himself and Tell him to keep it up and maybe we will not see you around much longer.

Wait, so Arian Foster felt like he could go back in however the coach felt otherwise and kept him on the bench?

Why didn't Foster throw his pads into the stands? The least he could have done is cuss out Kubiak in the locker room and walk out on his coach (not his teammates btw). AF clearly is not a winner.

Maybe people should spend less time trying to flame me and more time getting some real and honest insight towards their football team and the disaster that it has become.

It's not a matter whether I like you or you like me. It's about your redundant posts.

Why don't you just create a "form post" that looks something like this:

"Bob McNair is a cheap bastard!


Gary Kubiak sucks!


I don't know the details of Arian Foster's contract (other than he will be an ERRFA) and have no idea of what his bonuses - if any, are, however it gives me an opportunity to (see above), Bob McNair is a cheap bastard"


You could then just copy and paste, saving yourself a lot of typing.

redundant posts? more like redundant franchise. its not my fault its the same thing over and over.

bad coaching. bad management/personnel decisions. poor ownership and leadership.

if the Texans were something other than that, I would write something other than that. feel free to refer to my posts during the halcyon days of the early season. I was skeptical but was happy with being 4-2 even with needing comebacks against average to below average teams. was I redundant then too?

i call it like i see it, and its been this way so if my posts are redundant its because they give me little to no reason to ever change my tone because it was probably accurate and spot on from Day One...and it pretty much has been.

like i said before, my record speaks for itself. kubiak sucks and mcnair is cheap and happy with mediocrity.

both have played themselves out just as I expected...but McNair's 'Sunshine' review last week did catch me a bit by surprise...no way, i thought he was that oblivious but i guess he is actually a worse owner than i had originally thought. hopefully it was all a smokescreen and the good ole vote of confidence...but it felt like an actual vote of confidence....frightening. simply frightening.

From the WTF, is this dude high???

Orignally Posted by GLOCKMEISTER
What ya think about trading Vince Young to Texans for Arian Foster????

The Texans always have this stud running back that usually flops, I bet they would pull the trigger on it in a minute. Bob Mcnair needs something to get the fanbase excited and this would do it.

Were not getting anyone else to pull the trigger and get any kind of real value for Vince.

Foster is an undrafted 2nd year player that will probably want to get paid, are they willing? Bud would be!!!

Vince wants to be in Houston

If we could pull this off we could get that other back to pound the ball, give us leverage on CJ, and use CJ as more of a weapon then a pound you in the ground back.

Thought????

my original reply was deleted, but lets just say that it put your myopia in perspective.

here is an edited version (apologies to mods for having to censor me..will try and moderate myself)

-----------------------------------------

oh boy, you told me off, Mr.Superfan.....

it was just a few weeks ago you were talking about how Kubiak needed to go, did you get sent to Re-Education Camp by McNair and the losers he has hired? I figured that maybe you had grown out of your role of myopic stooge, but I guess i was wrong.

And when you give it to Bob himself, because after all you are Super Fan and you hobknob in those exclusive circles, let him know that all fans aren't as vapid and naive as you seem to be. Some fans, and i venture to say most of the fans, are sick of this dog and pony show.

if someone keeps giving you a crap sandwich made by your favorite restaurant, you don't have to keep eating it just because its from your favorite restaurant. how about losing the automaton act and trying something else from the menu, like oh I don't know...a good sandwich. Just because you like to eat crap sandwiches year after year, doesn't mean you can get mad at people who are sick of them. I knew Kubiak was a crap sandwich from day one....but whatever, he is the 'hometown hero' and a niiiiiiice guy. who cares, the guy is a losing head coach and one of the least inspirational coaches I have ever seen. Dude can't even watch critical plays because he is such a wuss.

oh and the guy can't even tell the difference between 4th and 1/2 yard and 4th and 1 1/2 yards....at the end of the game. yeah, the good ole QB sneak when you need 1 1/2 yards....but go bow before your Kubiak altar to a 9-7 2009. You truly are a Super Fan, Joe Texan.....we are honored to be in your company.

In case none of you have taken the time to be a FREE THINKER...

Go back and look at Second Honeymoon's posts from week 1 until about week 5 of this season.

He was very excited about this team, this year, and was actually posting a lot of positive stuff each week. In fact, he was sometimes telling people to calm down and wait and see if the defense improves, etc.

But a few people on here go and rag him out, without telling other parts of the story, and people pile on and quote things and create what I consider to be an unfair image of the guy.

He's been here a long time. He's held unpopular stances, for a long time. He's taken as much as he's dished out, for a long time. Outside of straying from the rules about "attacking posters with personal insults," he's been a pretty loyal "fan" to have stuck it out for this long.

I don't always agree with what he says, but it's part of the gig here.

Two games left, and we're already bored to the point of going after one another. Awesome.

thanks, GP. i was hated for thinking carr sucked since day one and now i am hated for thinking kubiak was a bad hire since day one and that he sucked.

seems like i am hated for being right....i'll take that any day but thanks for the support and for the record, I wish I was wrong about this team. they just stink.

and as for being optimistic, of course I was optimistic. we were 4-2 and our defense sucked. i tried to buy into the defense improving but our inactivity/incompetence in FA/draft doomed us.

as for personal attacks, I think its safe to say i am attacked more than I attack...but you won't hear any whining here about it.

i love this board and was here since it opened..albeit under my original banned user profile Honeymoon Is Over back in 2003. yeah, I was pissed in 2003. go figure. at least our defense didn't suck back then.

I never thought of that however the obvious answer is yes. Where else is VY getting his money aside from maybe some endorsements?

....and now i am hated for thinking kubiak was a bad hire since day one and that he sucked.



Just curious...

How could you possibly know from day one that Kubiak was a bad hire?
He came from a winning program, been to and won the SB as either a player or coach, appeared to have put in his time moving up the coaching ladder...this was the logical next step for him. Nothing in his past "shouted" that he was going to fail. (I liked the hire but was ready to move on after the 2nd 8-8 season)

Again, I'm simply wondering what you saw from day-one that you were so down on him about.
